Dr. Farokh Master (DVD 1 and 2) is one of India’s most famous homeopaths, and his appearances at the Children’s Congresses are absolute highlights of each event. He has an immense wealth of clinical experience, also in treating extremely serious diseases, and can hold an audience in his hand with his vivid way of imparting knowledge.
He describes the case of a girl with a serious skin disease, for example, in which he also paid attention to symptoms relating to her mother being controlled and dominated during her pregnancy. In describing the case of a child with acute leukaemia, he shows how important it is to find out what condition the patient was in before he developed cancer.
Farokh Master gives a masterly explanation of how to differentiate symptoms when taking the case history, as ultimately the symptoms significant for repertorisation can be identified in this way even in cases of extremely serious disease.
Case 1: girl with serious skin disease (remedy: Crotalus cascavella)
Case 2: acute asthma – significance of the “art of observation” (remedy: Bryonia)
Case 3: case history and analysis using the example of an immunodeficient child with therapy-resistant nephrotic syndrome (remedy: Tuberculinum bovinum)
Case 4: AMKL (acute megakaryoblastic leukaemia) - (remedy: Lycopodium)
Dr. Dinesh Chauhan (DVD 3), a close confidante of Rajan Sankaran, gives a brilliantly simple, step by step explanation of Sankaran’s new anamnesis technique and its particularities as it relates to children. He shows how he takes children to the focal point of their deepest feelings while taking their case history, thus guiding them to their “centre”. Dinesh Chauhan explains this in detail using the case history of a 2 ½ year old boy with asthma. He takes the child to the focal point of his deepest feeling step by step, using this process to find the right remedy.
In other case studies, Dr.Chauhan describes the remedies Bellis perennis, Chocolate and Uranium nitricum.
Taking case histories in three steps.
