The main focus of the course is on Polychrests and Constitutional Prescribing, however lesser known Organopathic medicines will also be discussed extensively. You will learn how to open drug-dependent cases and ascertain a clearer picture, in order to prepare for the constitutional medicine.

In today’s drug dependent world, it is very difficult to get a clear picture of the disease, as Hahnemann mentioned in aphorism 173 (One sided diseases).

In Dr. Banerjea’s extensive clinical experience, he has used either deep acting anti-miasmatic medicines or lesser known organopathic medicines to open such cases and when the totality is clearer, prescribe a polychrest or constitutional medicine. This approach will be focussed on within the course.

A Repertory of the Lesser Known medicines will also be provided for your quick remedy diagnosis!

In aphorism §91 of Organon, Hahnemann clearly mentions about prescribing for natural disease and not for conjoint disease (where the drug induced artificial chronic disease is superimposed on natural disease & patient cannot give us a clear picture e.g. modalities, sensation or characters of pain).

This practical approach for the present drug dependent world is aimed to give you and your patient the confidence that Homoeopathy is working within 1st or 2nd follow-up. Also, through gradual weaning off the conventional medication, your patient becomes free from side effects of chemicals.

This is a time tested, repeatedly verified, scientific, classical, simple and practical approach which has been practised for centuries by Master Homoeopaths including Drs. Kent, Hering, Lippe, Tyler, Nash. The medicine pictures (Materia Medica) will be presented in a synopsis hexagonal approach, which will enable the prescriber to understand the keywords of the medicine (e.g. ‘Retention’ for Natrum Mur.; ‘Anchor’ for Pulsatilla; ‘Principle’ for Kali Carb; ‘ Unfulfilled’ for Tuberculinum ) on which major emphasis should be given for prescribing.

The unique aspects of this methodology of M-TEK: (Miasm (50% emphasis) + [Totality, Essence + Keynotes] (50% emphasis), which is the classical and practical prescribing approach in this drug dependant world, is shown by the benefits which are as follows:-

1) Time tested;

2) Scientific;

3) Methodical and logical;

4) Founded on solid principles; and

5) Simple Homoeopathy, non confusing.

The Therapeutic approach of the programme does not intend to relate that the Homoeopathic prescription should be made on the basis of name of disease, but on the basis of strictest individualization. The patient comes to us and says the name of the disease that s/he has been told by her / his physician; the therapeutic classification of medicine is just the way forward to handle the diseases of the modern world, quickly and efficiently, especially in drug dependent cases, opening with lesser known medicines, which will be discussed during the course, in detail. Through this therapeutic method, Dr. Banerjea encourages students to think of a group of 8 – 10 medicines as a starting point and to do comparative evaluation considering the above mentioned methodologies to reach the similimum. Of course many times A – Z, any medicine can be considered according to totality.
