In the Bönninghausen Polar Symptom Analysis, polar symptoms (opposite to the patient’s symptoms) are considered to increase the probability of certain remedies.

This only works when symptoms are taken from the English and German versions of the Therapeutic Pocket Book (b2, b2ge.300) as these contain polar symptoms.

When the user selects the patient’s symptoms (preferably in clipboard 1), RadarOpus automatically takes the corresponding opposite polar symptoms. The latter symptoms are displayed in a virtual clipboard, which is only visible when a polar symptom analysis is requested (in the analysis window: click on the black-white circle icon).


The following lines are present in the analysis window:

  • The sum of symptoms  (the remedies are sorted secondary on the sum of degrees)
  • The patient’s symptoms  (this is the sum of degrees)
  • Opposite polar symptoms  (this is the sum of degrees)
  • The Polar difference



The Polar difference is calculated as follows: the “sum of degrees of the opposite polar symptoms” is subtracted from the “sum of degrees of the patient symptoms”. The higher the Polar difference, the better this is for the remedy. The lower the value (or even a negative value) means there are contraindications for that remedy.


Select your way to upgrade

If you are a RadarOpus user and

  • you bought the Bönninghausen Module: you get the Polar symptom analysis for free as it is a part of that module. If your B-module is not automatically upgraded (which happens as of version 1.41.15), contact your representative to have you sent a new Personal Activation Code, granting you access to the Polar symptom analysis
  • you already have Bönninghausen’s Therapeutic Pocket Book: you can buy the Polar symptom analysis as an add-on
  • you don’t own any of the above: you can buy either the Polar symptom analysis bundle or the Bönninghausen Module
