In recent days there has been a lot of discussion going on, on Bonninghausen a disciple of Hahnemann and his repertory TPB.
He was a Lawyer and a botanist,survived tuberculosis with Homeopathy and there after studied homeopathy under the great master himself and this is what master has to say about him;
In 1853 Hahnemann wrote, ". . . Bönninghausen of
Münster has studied and grasped my homeopathic system of treatment so thoroughly that as a homeopath he deserves to be fully trusted, and if I should be ill myself and unable to help myself I would not entrust myself to any other physician." .
TPB has been edited by Dr George Dimitriardis and named TBR or THE BONNINGHAUSEN REPERTORY.It is claimed to be truest translation from original German TPB into English of today.
It is being said that it changes the way we think about symptoms and case analysis from Kentian point of view, and adheres to true Hahnemannian concepts.
It is now also available as a computer software called OpenRep. The free version is available to all Hpathy members.
I have been trying to use it and am slowly getting the hang of it. It is claimed that it can find out the most appropriate remedy by just using few rubrics selected on the basis of what is termed as "LoCoMoCo"; which means
COMPLAINT (Symptoms,subjective,objective and sensations)
I leave this topic open for further comments from HWC members and share their experiences to see how far it can be useful as compared to other repertories and soft wares currently available.
