The Best Way to Learn Thuja: Learn A Drug Challenge

Books Referred: Lectures on Homoeopathic Materia Medica, Dr. J.T.Kent
                Lectures on Clinical Materia Medica, E. A. Farrington
                The Essence of Materia Medica, George Vithoulkas
                Allen's Keynotes

 I whole-heartedly agree with Dr. Vithoulkas when he says, "The symptamatology in Thuja is usually UNCLEAR. You feel there is something there which you cannot quite grasp. Consequently, it is rare that you feel fully confident of a thuja prescription. The full image is never clear because the patient never opens up enough." Modern repertorisation software makes the selection of a drug less difficult. But the knowledge of the physician is tested when he has to make the final decision, the selection of the similimum, that which alters the health of the patient and aids him in speedy recovery.

Reading Challenge #Learn-A-Drug

We all need to read, read to know, read to learn, read to update. Those in the medical profession need to read even more, for the same reasons. Plus it is mandatory to keep up with the expanding medical and professional innovations. What better way than to take up a reading challenge?

It is a common knowledge that reading the materia medica is absolutely necessary to help us become the better prescriber for the survival of the fittest.

Dr. J. T. Kent's Clinical Cases: Observations

Your doubts are answered. The single medicines work effectively. Higher potencies do cure acute and chronic diseases. Medicines may have to be changed when the symptoms take a turn. Medicines need no repetition until they exhaust their action.  Homoeopathy revives a terminally ill case. These and much more are evident in the Clinical Cases. The Clinical cases I am referring to here are from Dr. J. T. Kent’s “New Remedies, Clinical Cases, Lesser Writings, Aphorisms and Percepts”.

Homoeopathic Treatment of Influenzas By D. M. Borland- A Review

I am in love with this book. If you are looking for an alphabetical arrangement of drugs with their corresponding symptoms, then this book is not for you. This book is all about the practical application of material medica in the clinic. He describes not the drug, but the everyday influenza patient. He starts slowly as how the patient is before the occurrence then builds on how the disease and the patient progresses and so on.
