There are multiple ways to analyze a case and choose the best constitutional homeopathic remedy (the remedy best suited for any given case). In this video I go over these methods and how I may combine methods in a case to be sure I am arriving at the best protocol!
I discuss the following case analysis methods:
- Polychrests – There are about 40 remedies which are used most often in cases. These remedies have a lot of data behind them, over a long period of time, and have been studied extensively. These remedies are called polychrests and I may just choose a polychrest from memory.
- Cases – Sometimes a new case will remind me of another one of my cases and I will consider using the same remedy (or a remedy from the same “family”).
- Sensation Method – Dr. Sankaran developed the Sensation Method. This means the we categorize the case into either the plant, animal, or mineral categories based on keywords and themes we are hearing from the client. Then we can further narrow down the remedy to families within the plant, animal, or mineral categories.
- Reportorization – All homeopaths are taught to “rep” a case, which means to input the most predominant symptoms into a computer software program called a “repertory”. The software program will then give a list of remedies, from most to least appropriate, for the case.
- Intuition/Experience – Over time, a homeopath (or any practitioner for that matter) does develop a certain level of intuition based on experience.
