Default Boenninghausen's books

Dear List,

I read "How to find the simillimum with Boger-Boenninghausen's Repertory" by Dr. Bhanu D.Desai. I think it is a good book helps me go into the teaching of Boenninghausen and understand how the read Boenninghausen Reportory. In this book page(3) mention a book "Boger-Boenninghausen's Repertory". However, I can not find a book under the same name. I could only find

1)Boenninghausen's Characteristics Materia Medica and Repertory by Boger Cyrus Maxwell
2)Boenninghausen's Characteristics Materia Medica by Boger Cyrus Maxwell
3)Boenninghausen's Therapeutic Pocket Book by Allen T.F

Can anyone give me information of the difference of these book EX." Is the Therapeutic Pocket Book by Allen T.F. same as the Pocket Book Chapter in "Boenninghausen's Characteristics Materia Medica and Repertory". Are they same piece of teaching but different author??

What book I need to have if I want to learn the Boenninghausen teaching in depth.

PL

Boger's rep, Boger- Boenningausen's characteristics Materia Medica and repertory are the same. This one was done by Boger as an improvement on the original therapeutic pocket book since he was not satisfied with the existing translations. Boger evolved his own " method" and added local modalities, and local time modalities from the original Therapeutic Book method of Location- sensation- Modality (aggravation & amelioration).

The therapeutic pocket book was the one conceived by Boenninghaussen and translated into English by many - the notable being the American edition by T F Allen.

In T F Allen's edition, there is a preface done by Roberts which is all you will need to know the method. Now, some are doing lesional prescribing with the TPB .. Roberts recommends the entire case . Also , you can visit www.boger-boenninghaussen.com for a better understanding. Also hahnemann-institute sydney( do a google search) for George dimitriadis''s site.

Default Boenninghausen's Books

You could take a look at the work of George Dimitriadis from Australia. George has spent the last nine years researching and more recently teaching 'The Bonninghausen Repertory - Therapeutic Pocketbook Method' in Australia and New Zealand and is a leading authority on this repertorial method. He has used the method exclusively in his clinic for more than five years.

The forward to 'The Bonninghausen Repertory (Therapeutic Pocketbook Method)' reads: ..... "In consultation with Dr K-H Gypser in Germany, and with access to original German sources annotated in some cases by Bonninghausen's own hand, George has created a text that is more accurate, easier to use and clearer in meaning than any previous English edition. Various transcription errors and mistranslations in previous editions have been identified and corrected. Verified additions have been made from other untranslated publications of Bonninghausen, and extensive endnotes give the clinician unprecedented certainty as to the shades of meaning that differentiate related items." This work was published in 2000.

This year, George Dimitriadis has also published 'Homoeopathic Diagnosis' which is an instructional manual detailing the concept, construction and application of the repertorial method of Bonninghausen. In two parts, with over fifty case exercises illustrating the application of The Bonninghausen Repertory:

Part One details the development and genius of Bonninghausen's Therapeutic Pocketbook and shows the link between the Homoeopathy of Hahnemann and Bonninghausen's practical method for its clinical application. It also described how this method may be applied in every case of disease with ease and confidence.

Part Two illustrates the application of this method with cases from George's clinic.

The entire work is extensively referenced to source material with numerous excerpts from original works and manuscripts not otherwise readily accessible.

Great (though dense) little book.


Dimitriadis and Gypser seem to be the ones who know the method best.

I can understand the renewed interest Boenninghaussen's work has generated at present: but what I cannot understand is the halo that is being created around it all of a sudden. As I see it, Boenninghaussen devised a simple, understandable method based on the organon for efficient case taking, analysis and solution. The whole theory can be understood in a day's study and reflection for a further week.

There are enough material already available which will help one master the method and to actually practice it. In the past year or so,with the prepared launch of Repertory Universale and Dimitriadis's work, there seems to be hectic discussion on the merits of the released versions ( not on the TPB or Boger's work). Am I right in seeing it as mere marketing ?

Correct me If i'm wrong.
Venkat

Dear Venkat,
One impression which I have gathered is that there is considerable fear in the Boenninghausan Camp that the "modern" homeopaths are losing sight of the basic principles of homeopathic case taking and analysis as endorsed by Hahnemann himself in the Organon. SO they seem pretty desperate to "save" "Hahnemannian homeopathy" while berating other homeoapths who do not strictly follow this method of analysis and even call them "pseudo-homeopaths".

I"m unaware of this connection with "Repertory Universale and Dimitriadis's work" though.

hmmmm considering the Banerji (sp?) discussion this simply got under my skin a little. Much of western science being based on mis-science by the assumption that he who publishes the most is the expert and knows the most therefore his thought pattern must be followed (as individual thinkers, homoeopaths should not simply become Lemmings but continue to think for themselves). Only your own knowledge and learning curve can confirm or disafirm someone elses knowledge and make it useful or useless. These two people may NOT be the ones who understand the method BEST but who HAVE written texts on it that confirm YOUR universal and much read knowledge curve. Thank you for your valued opinion.

Please pardon this blurt

Merrillee,
Do you say this because you disagree that they know it "best"--do you have someone else in mind who you think knows it better? I'm curious what the thought was behind your objection?

Dear Leela,

I do not want to berate any method- each has its own advantages. For example, in an acute flare up, I take up my Boger's rep and find one rx that covers the intensity of the present suffering. After the storm subsides, I return to Kent/synthesis for the greater part of the case.

Blaming any system is dangerous. My concern was already reflected. Why all the sudden fuss ? Looks like preparations for the elections:-)

Venkat
