The Language of the Patient

June 10-14, 2004 (Alonissos, Greece)

About the Topic

Any prescription is based on the language of the patient, verbal and non-verbal. Yet one homeopath hears "this" and prescribes Abies canadensis and another one sees "that" and prescribes Zingiber officinale. Why is it that, too often, there appears to be an alphabet of possibile prescriptions for the same patient's story?

The language of the patient is transcribed, standardized, and in fact organized into the language of the Repertory. It is not possible to find the correct rubric without thoroughly understanding the language of the patient.

Dr. Frederik Schroyens has been the Editor of Synthesis since 1987 and has an exclusively classical homeopathic practice since 1978. His experience both as a successful homeopath and as a Repertory Editor guarantees an illuminating approach to understanding the language of the patient and the language of the repertory.

Practical techniques, interesting exercises, unwritten Materia Medica, and down to earth theory will be strewn throughout a number of acute and chronic cases. This will include demonstrating strategies for solving cases which were not solved for years.
