Intermittent Fever with Repertory of Boenninghausen
P.P. Wells M.D.
The falsehood of the oft-repeated "Homoeopathy will not cure ague" has been demonstrated in the book and the author assure us "that there is no more difficulty in treating intermittent fever than in treating any other disease." He has also proved "that the idea that Cinchona or any of its constituent elements or any other drug or nostrum is or can be specific cure for this class of fevers, is without foundation in truth or in sound medical philosophy."
i near future i will post.
Dear MembersComplements, -- I experience the same. I use BB1 for reference. TT and P&W software are not as detailed.
In all those cases where pathology is involved and the patient gives insufficient symptoms I use Boenninghausen repertory (P&W software) and Murphy repertory. For fever cases I prefer to use Boger Boenninghausen repertory because of easy approach.
Here is another useful book:
C. M. Boger: Therpeutics of diphteria, tonsilitis, septic sore throat etc. (1920)
The booklet contains the most useful remedies in a concise description, and a repertory, which is Boger style (short and to the point).
I have synthesis and complete repertory, all updated. They are comprehensive and can be used for chronic diseases and when you have sufficient time for case taking and processing.
For successful clinical practice particularly when you are dealing many patients suffering from some short term acute diseases, you need to know key notes of only few medicines and a small repertory like that of Boericke which I think is sufficient and reliable. However, you cannot deny and ignore the importance of above mentioned comprehensive repertories.
Regarding the side affects of previous treatment I would say, prescribe on the present clear strong symptoms.
I am use Phatak and Boericke repertories in my daily practice. I ask one more question please, Are you write own key notes for your daily practice?
In my opinion Boericke is better than others.I use Lippe Key notes and red line symptoms of MM.It is the most reliable.
