This is a classical text written by the Late Dr HL Chitkara who was one of the stalwarts of Homeopathy. He was one of the key people who worked on prescribing only on the basis of mind symptoms. The book is a compilation of rubrics of 892 remedies from Synthetic Repertory and few other sources (marked with asterix). This is an exclusive work of its kind by which one can understand the link between Materia Medics and Repertory. There are so many rubrics which we are unaware of, with this book all such rubrics come to light. Similarly there are so many remedies for a rubric which we don't think about in our day-to-day practice which are revealed in the book. This compilation is more comprehensive, more authentic, more accurate and more elucidate than any other work of this kind done to date.
