SIMILLIMUM EXCERPTS:

An Intriguing Case Illustrating Sankaran Method
(Subscription req'd) The following case is one that some will find controversial since, to my knowledge, there is virtually no information about the remedy that was employed in the existing homeopathic literature. Some so-called purists find it very disturbing to hear that remedies are being given despite their not yet having been proven.

Beyond Tarentula Hispanica (Complete article)
One of the main criteria that we use to select a medicine for a patient is the kingdom: animal, plant, or mineral. The category of nosodes (medicines made from the products of disease, such as Tuberculinum, is considered to be a separate category). Of equal importance is the distinction of which miasm (how the patient is affected by his disease, or the level of desperation in the case

The Centesimal and LM Potencies - Winter 2001 (Complete article)
A homeopath should be well acquainted with Hahnemann's references to potency in the 4th and 5th editions of 7he Organon in order to understand the Homeopathy of the 1840s, which is found in the 6th edition (1842). Homeopathy as commonly practiced today is based on the single dry dose, wait and watch method of Hahnemann's first Chronic Diseases (1828) and the 4th Organon (1829). In this method, a single pellet dose of the centesimal potency is used as long as the patient is improving in even the slightest manner. Many of the great 19th century homeopaths like James Kent were masters of this method. The dry dose may only be repeated when there is a definite relapse of the old symptoms calling for repetition. Hahnemann was not completely comfortable with this method cases that only slowly improved over a longer period of time.

Two Cases Of Helleborus - Summer 2000 (Complete article)
I have long been touched by the simple, wan appearance of the Hellebores. My mother had planted a hillside of them underneath the shadow of a dozen Douglas Firs. They would bloom at the beginning of winter, looking pale and ghostly through the season's rain and snow. Little else bloomed at this time of year in our garden, but the flowers of the Hellebores were hardly cheery, unlike the Snowdrops that valiantly rose out of the frosty ground near them, or the eventual Crocus that would beckon spring. Instead, it was their lack of vibrancy that distinguished the Hellebores.

The Courage to Go Ahead: An Interview With Divya Chhabra - Winter 2002 (Complete article)
Her consuming gaze bespeaks a vital and searching intellect and there can be little doubt that despite her relative youth (mid-thirties), Bombay homeopath Divya Chhabra is a master and at the cutting edge of modern practice. While her husband, Rajan Sankaran, despite his popularity and immense contributions to the profession, has sometimes been a lightening rod for controversy and criticism, Divya has quietly emerged as one of the great teachers and leaders of homeopathy in the world today. Despite their intimate alliance, there are certain differences in their methodology that speak to her individualism and drive to follow her own experience, a reoccurring theme throughout our discussion.
