Boger-Bönninghausen Repertories integrated

The major Repertory work of these pioneer homeopaths has been fully integrated into Synthesis. The new information has been documented in a very transparent way. The individualized, Kentian symptoms have been integrated seamlessly with the generalized, Bönninghausen symptoms, respecting both approaches.

Which repertories were added?

Bönninghausen is most renown for his "Therapeutic Pocket Book" (b2), but he also wrote two other repertories: the two volumes of the "Systematisch-Alfabetisches Repertorium" (b4b7). Both books contain hundreds of pages; one offers "anti-psoric, anti-syphilitic and anti-sycotic remedies" (b4) and the other "non-anti-psoric remedies" (b7).

Boger collated the work of Bönninghausen and his own work into the "Boger Bönninghausen Repertory" (bg2). He also published two more repertories: the "Synoptic Key" (bg3) and the "General Analysis" (bg11).

These six repertories have been encoded and are available in their totality, as separate repertories that can be used at the same time as Synthesis. In addition, all the information from b2, b4, b7 and bg2 has been integrated into Synthesis 9.0 and is available there as well.

At last the handwritten additions of Bönninghausen have been added to b4 and b7.

Encoded from the sources with the greatest care for quality

The original source was used for all six repertories, whether English or German. The encoded symptoms and remedies were triple checked by different teams to ensure the highest possible accuracy and reliability.

Integrating b-bg symptoms with the Kentian Synthesis symptoms

All existing Synthesis (version 8) symptoms have remained unaltered. The generalized b-bg symptoms have been integrated in between the Synthesis symptoms without disrupting each other. Synthesis 9 offers a seamless integration of individualized and generalized symptoms within one Repertory .

Three new chapters

As some b-bg symptoms could not easily be integrated into the existing 38 Synthesis chapters, three new chapters were created.

A most transparent integration

The addition and/or integration of the six b-bg repertories has been fully documented and can easily be verified in the sources or in Synthesis.

Benefits of this integration

The integration of these b-bg repertories in Synthesis offers the homeopath a number of benefits . A wider range of information allows him to use the most appropriate rubric for his patient with increased precision.
