How often have you been intrigued by a peculiar rubric in the repertory? In this workshop, we will examine how often-overlooked or bizarre rubrics can give deeper insight into our remedies and see how this technique can also be applied to our patients’ symptoms, helping with remedy selection. Physiology and psychology are united at the fundamental level. Thus, all symptoms no matter how diverse are expressions of this basic pattern. For example, ‘Singing, involuntarily, on hearing a single note sung’ is echoed by ‘Metrorrhagia from slightest motion’. As well as Crocus sativa, we will also explore Berberis, Mancinella and Podophyllum, amongst others.
