Dr. Boericke's Clinical Repertory: An Insight

Clinical Repertories, by definition are those that have clinical rubrics with the Homeopathic remedies indicated for them. But, a Homeopathic Clinical Repertory is much more than that. Dr. William Boericke gifted the Homeopathic profession with a detailed and useful Materia Medica. And, his brother, Dr. Oscar Boericke added a Clinical Repertory to the work. Consisting of 25 chapters, it is a Repertory that covers most aspects of the human body while following the Hahnemannian schema. This Course will discuss Clinical Repertories briefly and then go through the different aspects of Boericke’s Clinical Repertory including, among other things, the philosophy, plan, construction and the scope and limitations.

Importance

The usefulness of Clinical Repertories in Homeopathic practice has been a topic of debate since a long time now. This is especially because a Homeopath should ideally depend on the characteristic symptoms of the case, rather than the arbitrary name of the diagnosis while prescribing the Homeopathic remedy. But, Clinical Repertories happen to be useful to a Homeopath many a time. That being said, they do have their limitations. This is something that Dr. Oscar Boericke talks about. So, knowing the purpose of a Clinical Repertory is extremely important before starting its usage in practice.
