Homeopathy Tips for 4/22/08 Mind Rubrics

When doing homeopathy it is very helpful to have a complete knowledge of the repertory, especially the mind section. Obviously it is so large it would probably be impossible to memorize it all.  But there are a few rubrics that come up often that it is good to be familiar with. These rubrics can often be seen in case-taking and could help lead to the best remedy.

Study these rubrics and get to know the remedies they contain. Having these as one of the tools in your toolbox will help you immensely.

  • Ennui – When there is a weary sense of dissatisfaction.
  • Superstitious – When a person trusts in something; saying or action, a fetish, habit, amulet, ie. “knock on wood”
  • Weeping; with sympathy for others – When they are easily moved to tears by the suffering of others.
  • Stupefaction – A state where the person is unable to react or respond to a situation or life; either through shock and amazement or groggy and insensible.
  • Sensitive; to noise – When there is an apprehension or fearful state as a result of a perception of unpleasant sounds.

Study the remedies and when you are familiar with them they can help you with remedy confirmation as well. They come up more often that you might think.

    Robert, You had mentioned a rubric in class a couble of months ago i had not heard before. I have not been able to find it again.

    It was when someone becomes distressed or feels strong emotional pain when reading about(ie in the newspaper) or hearing about others bad news,or sad situations.

    Can you tell me again what that rubric is?
    Thank you

    Mind; horrible,sad stories effect profoundly, agg.

    Thanks for this info, I am finding that it is quite indespensible in learning effective case-taking. However it is through the amazing constructs that your school takes, where live cases are the basis for learning, that brings this information to life for me. The studying of text is great for the purpose of having the information “in” the brain somewhere, but I find that as a live person describes their dis-ease and the ways in which they suffer, the information that is learned through written word transforms into a sense of knowing and feeling that can not be duplicated in any other way. For me it is trough real people and their story of how they suffer that real knowledge graces my studies. Thanks Robert!

    This list is going to be very helpful in case-taking. Sometimes looking through the repertory can be overwhelming, so this list is a good jumping off point for the more common things that people go through.
    On another note, the emergency homeopathy lecture came in handy last night when my 8mo old had a sudden fever. Instead of reaching for the baby aspirin, I reached for Belladonna and let him be. It came down on its own and he seems to be fine today. Thanks!

    Thanks for these wonderful and simplified mind rubrics.Its really very difficult to understand what actually the masters have tried to explain for each remedy in their individual repotery.So it will be lot easier for a practioner if he gets the real and simplified understanding of such words.so looking for such type of more works in future.thanks again.
