i mindMaps 150Like the dictionary, the Repertory has to be alphabetical so that rubrics can be easily located – but look at the distance between (say) anger and anal boils. Despite this, the Repertory is the single most important weapon in the homeopath's armoury; it has to be well known and well understood. A useful route to this understanding is to cut across the alphabetical order and to classify the information in any chapter. These articles discuss how repertorization can lead the homeopath to an effective prescription, and how it can reveal some of the complexities of different remedy constitutions.
