The Vexation Rubrics in Bönninghausen
Clarifying the Concept with Case Examples
with Dr. Jamie Oskin

Did you know that when James Tyler Kent was compiling his own repertory (upon which nearly every modern repertory is now based), he mistranslated Bönninghausen's vexation rubrics and copied them into the wrong section!

In this free session, Dr. Oskin will clarify the concept of vexation, comparing rubrics in Bönninghausen’s Therapeutic Pocketbook with Kent's Repertory. He will illustrate the practical application of the vexation rubrics and show how to utilize them for better results in clinical practice.

This exciting series will introduce the pharmacologic model of similars discovered and developed by Samuel Hahnemann, including how Hahnemann’s materia medicæ were constructed. With that foundation, the series will illustrate how Bönninghausen created the repertory to most accurately aid the clinician in the application of Hahnemann’s pharmacologic model of similars in clinical practice. This course will include historical background on the construction of the materia medica and repertory so that you can understand how the tools were developed, and therefore, how to best access and utilize these primary texts in both study and clinical practice.

Special attention will be focused on the process of abstraction and recombination of symptoms in the materia medica, repertory, and in practical clinical application. Abstraction and recombination of symptoms in the application of similars was first developed by Hahnemann. Bönninghausen’s Therapeutic Pocketbook is the only repertory that is designed to accurately reflect and fully realize Hahnemann’s intended methodology in the application of the law of similars.

This introductory online series will include many cases illustrating the Bönninghausen Therapeutic Pocketbook method in practice. You will come away with a consistent and methodical case analysis method in which to approach cases utilizing Bönninghausen’s Therapeutic Pocketbook in order to apply the law of similars and significantly increase your success in practice.

The course will focus solely on the application of George Dimitriadis’ most accurate English translation of The Bönninghausen Repertory, Second Edition (TBR2), which is available as a hard cover book as well as electronically exclusively through MacRepertory. This course will provide students with a great deal of clinical application through case examples that will expand upon the prior course "Homœopathic Diagnosis, Hahnemann through Bönninghausen" taught by George Dimitriadis for WholeHealthNow. Cases and readings will be posted ahead of time so that students can fully engage with active learning to practice their skills using TBR2 to solve cases.

Among the several courses that I have taken from WHN … this has been by far the best one!! I hope that you can arrange very soon another course with Dr. Oskin.
— Dr. Juan Carlos Gamba - Quebec, Canada

This was an outstanding class. Dr. Oskin's professional presence and the way in which
he handled the course overall was top notch. He brings repertorizing to its basics so
that students learn what the rubrics mean. CoLoMo to MoLoCo revolutionized
my case taking. Excellent class!
