Combining two or more similar rubrics to make a single rubric is essential for ensuring perfect repertorization and reliable output. SIMILIMUM ULTRA SOFTWARE provides a special tool for this work.
All of us would have experienced confusing situations where it appears difficult to decide which rubric should be selected to represent a particular symptom, when there are two or more similar rubrics, but with different drug lists in the repertory. A single symptom may be represented in different places of the repertory as different rubrics. If we select one rubric and avoid the others, some essential drugs also get avoided by that process. Perhaps, one of those ‘avoided’ drugs may be a rightful candidate for being selected as the similimum.
To overcome this situation of avoiding rightful candidate drugs, some homeopaths select all seemingly similar rubrics for repertorization. That leads to another grave error, that may lead to totally unreliable repertorization results. When a single symptom is represented by many rubrics for repertorization, some drugs get undue weightage due to over-representation. Actually, in order to get perfect repertorization, a single symptom should be reprsented by a single rubric.
We also see, same symptom will be represented by different rubrics in different repertories, along with entirely different drug lists. In this case also, it will be very difficult to decide which rubric from which repertory should be used for repertorization. If we use all the similar rubrics from all different repertories, the problem of ‘over-representation’ will arise. Our decision will ultimately affect the outcome of repertorization of similimum.
In order to resolve this perennial dilemma of homeopaths, SIMILIMUM ULTRA has provided an innovative tool- ‘COMBINE RUBRICS’. Physician can add to WORK SHEET platform all seemingly similar rubrics from any repertories that may represent a particular symptom. During the ‘pre-repertorization’ preparatory stage, all the similar rubrics can be COMBINED to make a single rubric that represent the particular symptom. All the drugs listed under different similar rubrics will be included, same time avoiding repetition of same drug even if it comes under different similar rubrics. Only the highest mark the drug got in any of the similar rubrics will be assigned as its mark. By this way, we can ensure ALL the probable drugs are considered as candidates for similimum, same time ruling out any chances of over-representation or over-weightage of any drug.
‘COMBINE RUBRIC’ is a small, but wonderful and innovative digital tool in SIMILIMUM ULTRA, that ensures perfect REPERTORIZATION RESULTS. By this single tool its itself, SIMILIMUM ULTRA becomes a much valuable and inevitable companion for a homeopath, when compared to other softwares currently available in the market.
