The Repertory you can rely on to help build a thriving Homeopathic practice
The tried and trusted repertory used by thousands of professional Homeopaths
- Synthesis is the only Repertory allowing you to include explicit source information when making additions!
- Not only precise bibliographical references, but also the actual text on which your Synthesis addition has been based. This is a most important tool to guarantee the quality of the additions by creating transparency and linking Synthesis and any Materia Medica in two directions.
- The focus in Synthesis is to strike a balance between the classical and modern for the utmost quality and reproducibility in Homeopathy.
- Edited by Frederik Schroyens, a renowned homeopath and Medical Doctor who worked closely with George Vithoulkas for many years. He is an experienced and busy Homeopathic Doctor alongside his role in creating and editing Synthesis.
Synthesis represents close collaboration throughout the profession; experienced Homeopaths have contributed to the project by including their own valued clinical findings. The Synthesis team then draws together these reliable additions and combines them with high quality Provings that have been overseen by experienced Homeopaths. Within Synthesis, there is also the facility to limit the repertory to a “View”; which filters out additions of modern remedies for those who wish to stay rooted in classical provings.
The original repertory to be used when creating the Vithoulkas Expert System
- The V.E.S intelligently combines different analysis strategies, giving priority to the smaller, characteristic rubrics as well as bringing out remedies based on the grading of symptoms- I.E. their keynote symptoms. Small rubrics and lesser known remedies are therefore brought forwards in your analysis to give a different perspective on the case. This often provides more satisfactory results than a flat repertorisation (using a simple counting method) because the V.E.S matches your grading of the patient’s symptoms with the grading in the repertory. The resulting analysis will therefore bring forward remedies with matching keynotes, characteristic symptoms and overall sphere of action.
Race around the repertory with our extensive network of cross references!
- Navigating Synthesis becomes easier even for newcomers, highlighting new rubrics for you to discover.
Synthesis contains Miasmatic tags within the repertory
- These are based on the teachings of Dr Ortega and/ or Giampetro. Many rubrics are categorised into the 3 fundamental miasms, which means that your repertorisation itself can provide insights into the miasmatic phase of your patient’s symptomatology!
Synthesis includes concept files – designed to help you find rubrics
- This is a great help for novices to the repertory who are yet to master the Victorian language employed! These concept files provide an alternative route into finding rubrics. You can search for a medical term or modern expression and find a link to the rubrics that cover the symptoms. Synthesis contains clinical and modern terms as these can be very helpful to modern Homeopaths.
You can quickly add remedies to existing rubrics in Synthesis
- Synthesis is the only Repertory allowing you to include explicit source information when making additions! Not only precise bibliographical references, but also the actual text on which your Synthesis addition has been based. This is a most important tool to guarantee the quality of the additions by creating transparency and linking Synthesis and any Materia Medica in two directions. These additions can be shared between users, so that the Homeopathic community can collaborate on updating the repertory.
Synthesis allows you to add families to the repertory
- Modern developments in Homeopathy have focused on groups or families of remedies and their shared characteristics. This has opened up many smaller remedies that may have been missed in the past. Lachesis has been prescribed countless times where perhaps other snake remedies may have been better suited, despite being under-represented in the repertory. Now you can add Families to rubrics based on your understanding of Kingdoms and families. The freedom to add any family to Synthesis makes it a truly unique repertory.

- Synthesis was never meant to be a static book, written for all generations to come, forever the words locked onto the pages. It was never designed to be “cast in stone”, but to take on the role of a living, breathing document. It is a work in progress, continuously being updated, verified, and redefined.
- Synthesis represents the fusion of the past with the present. It combines the tried and true historical findings of homeopathy with today’s influx of new findings by the Homeopaths of today (and tomorrow). Synthesis is unique in that a key fundamental philosophy is to never sacrifice quality for quantity.
- Synthesis is the repertory of choice in homeopathic schools around the world.
It is used in more than 70 countries and is available in English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, and Spanish.
- It is available both in a book version and at the heart of the homeopathy software RadarOpus. Although Synthesis as a book is quite outstanding, the real power and heart of this repertory rests in its ability to be tailored to the needs and discretion of the individual Homeopath. It is in the computerized version of Synthesis that this work meets this objective, and then exceeds it.
- Synthesis 9.1V (V = includes veterinary rubrics) is now also available as an app for your mobile device, e.g. your mobile phone or tablet. This powerful standalone app works well as a companion to RadarOpus, as you can find any rubric anywhere and email your results to yourself as a pdf, or perhaps to import the file into your RadarOpus and continue to work from there. The app is a handy way to have your repertory with you at all times – for details see here.
