Throat chapter in Synthesis repertory – a comparative study

Dr Sunila BHMS,MD(Hom)

Synthesis; Repertorium Homoeopathicum Syntheticum by Frederik Schroyens is the printed version of RADAR (Rapid Aid to Drug Aimed Research) computer programme.

It is enlarged version of 6th American edition of Kent’s Repertory. It contains all its rubrics and remedies. This repertory has been improved qualitatively in structure and language to make it more comprehensible and to facilitate easy reference at the time of need.

Throat and External Throat
These chapters contain repeatedly checked additions from all standard homoeopathic literatures. The sources are indicated in abbreviated form towards the end of each medicine.

These chapters include so many clinical rubrics and sub rubrics which help in the study of homoeopathy in relation to modern pathology.
