study of material medica. Effective materia medica

use of the repertory, correlating this with our
authentic sources, commentaries of masters and finally
to critically analyzed clinical experiences.
great master, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the scientist &
the artist, directed homoeopathic physician to pay
attention to deviations from the former healthy state of
the now diseased individual & recognize the ‘true
and only conceivable portrait of the disease (Aph.6);
Artist sensitively receives impressions of the subject
and projects this experience on the canvas. Portrait,
thus becomes task demanding sensitivity, authenticity
and integrity of the artist along with mastery over
skills and methods and techniques he employs to give
expression to his perceptions. In contrast to an artist,
portrait drawn by a Homoeopathic physician is quite
dynamic. It needs to incorporate on going clinical
experiences of patients which may demand continuous
modifications. In order to ensure fineness and depth of
portrait it is important that it has multiple facets and
evolutionary perspective. This is possible provided

available to the physician is the behaviour and
narration of the individual. Physician has to go beyond
these gestures and words in order to unearth the
underlying state of feelings and thoughts. Then only he
can make deep inroad towards the core of the individual.
This facilitates his travel towards perceiving the
characteristic state of disposition as per § 211

psychodynamic analysis of these experiences and
qualified features permit us to perceive this state.
Every trait has sensory as well as motor components. A
particular trait evolves with other co-ordinates. All
together, build up the state. When we study this from
the perspective of repertory, materia medica and
clinical dimension, we can build up the portrait.

profession. Quite often we see contradictory diverse
views. After painstaking efforts, Homoeopathic physician
finds out the correct drug for the patient. If his
selection of the potency and repetition and subsequent
appreciation of remedy response are not proper, he fails
to manage the case.
