I feel pleasure in writing a few words about the book “Be a master of materia medica” by Dr Muhammad Rafeeque.
so far I have not seen a book of this kind. It is unique in its nature. You can find all the important rubrics of every medicine, particularly polycrests. It guides how and where to find the rubric and their corresponding medicines in a number of famous homeopathic repertories like Kent, Synthesis, Knerr, Phatak, Boenninghausen, Boericke, Murphy and others. For example, in the chapter on conium the symptom, “No inclination for business.” You will see that besides conium there is Pulsatilla in capital, and by comparing, you may select Pulsatilla as a similimum; comparison is also possible at the same time. Reading this book encourages the reader to consult more than one repertory for the selection of the indicated remedy. The level is suitable for students of homeopathy and homeopathic practitioners. Due to its popularity, Dr Rafeeque's book has been translated into Spanish and I hope soon will be available in other languages.
