Boenninghausen's work is the most comprehensive in logic and philosophy. He was the first to evaluate remedies in relation to individual symptoms and introduced methods of the relationship of given remedy to a particular case. His analytical thinking gave birth to the doctrine of concomitants.
Boger was the best student of Boenninghausen and created one of the greatest homeopathic literature - Boger Boenninghausen's Characteristics & Repertory (BBCR) in the year 1905. He combined Boenninghausen's concept and observations from his own years of practice which endeavored a repertory useful for cases abundant with particulars.
Boger Boenninghausen's Characteristics & Repertory popularized with the concept of complete symptom, concomitants, pathological generals and fever totality. This repertorial work is based on Boenninghausen's 'Repertory of Antipsorics', one of the finest homeopathic repertory.
BBCR is based on the following fundamental concepts:
- Doctrine of complete symptom
- Doctrine of pathological generals
- Doctrine of causation and time
- Clinical rubrics
- Evaluation of remedies
- Fever totality
This 2-part session on Boger Boenninghausen's Characteristics & Repertory focuses on how to effectively apply Boenninghausen's concept and repertorise using the repertory.
