  • Everything seems clear excepting the first prescription. Carc came at the top of repertorisation and yet prescribed in 1M inspite of gross pathological changes. While the same logic applied in case of Aur mur nat and was given in low potency. Here Carc appears to be the similimum on the basis of totality and not an intercurrent. The logic may kindly be further explained.

    • Your two articles viz., When signs are the clues and Treat the patient not the Disease are very informative. I would like to have your contact no / e-mail to discuss so many important things about Homeopathy. The so called big guns are not doing classical Homeopathy they are formulating their own theory.

  • Dear Doctor,

    Can i know which repertorisation software was used to cure ?It’s great about homeopathy and great skill.Congrats .

  • This i s a good case management and success. I think a specific medicine such as Kali Cynat. can be added as a complementary .. thats I have been trying ..

  • Dear dr. u have presented a very good case, with evidence. u are a much experienced homoeopath i have got some quaries.

    do identifying the miasm helped in your prescription ?

    can we prescribe the carc if the case is clearly diagnosed cancer, or tuberculinum in a case of T.B.?

  • I have explained miasmatic evaluation in places in this article.
    Carcinosin is not indicated in all cancers and so as for tuberculinum for TB.
    An overall study is essential in every case.
    Regards.

  • DEAR DR,
    U MAY BE AWARE THAT IN PAST JOURNAL ONE DR STATED THAT HE CURED SEVERAL CASES OF CANCER WITH ‘RUTA’ ONLY. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF ANY OTHER DR HAS AN EXPERIENCE OF CURING CANCER WITH ‘RUTA.
    THANKS
