Why Use Concepts?
The endless lists of symptoms and appropriate remedies become understandable if they are broken down into themes. Even the most concealed symptom can be found if one is guided to it via a theme such as ‘responsibility’, ‘animals’, or clinical expressions such as Alzheimers etc. For example, you can look in the Zulian index for themes that link to suggested rubrics within Synthesis. Or you can enter a keyword in the search function and search in all concepts to see if there are any ‘hits’ in concepts documents.
Translate the language of your patient into the language of the repertory
A patient may not provide the most accurate words to describe how he or she is feeling. It is up to the practitioner to recognize patterns, symptoms or key words during the interview process. This can sometimes make diagnosis very difficult for a homeopath. This is to be expected – we are all very different, and our language leaves room for much uncertainty around the ‘concept’ of the patient’s problem.
Simplify locating rubrics with these concepts that make suggestions for you
Now you can find the rubric that truly matches your patient’s condition or be directed toward rubrics
