The sixth revised edition of My Experiments with Homoeopathic Combinations covers the effective prescriptions based on personal experiences of Dr P. S. Khokhar. This book contains more than 600 homoeopathic combinations, covering the most common therapeutic condition. Few examples of therapeutic condition covered by the author are:
There is hardly any dearth of good and knowledgeable books
and literature on homoeopathy and homoeopathic therapeutics
in the profession. Therefore, I feel somewhat hesitant to put this
very humble work of mine before my learned homoeopaths.
The effort is from my original notes, which I had put down
in a notebook bit by bit over a period of my about forty years of
practice in homoeopathy.
This is just to serve a limited objective, and my sincere thanks
and obligations go to Dr. V.K. Gupta, G.H.M.S. (Hons.), Principal,
Nehru Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital, New Delhi;
Deputy Director, Homoeopathy, 1.S.M. & H., Delhi Administration, Delhi; Member, Governing Body, Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy, Ministry of Health, Government of India,
and Honorary Homoeopathic Physician to the President of India.
Dr. Gupta after seeing my personal notes, which I had jotted down after my repeated experience, getting encouraging and
good results, and the success of the remedies prescribed for the
diseases mentioned therein, during my day to day practice, had
suggested to have them published. Therefore as encouraged by
Dr. Gupta, I have compiled them into this small book.
I would like to mention here that although the Law of Similia
Similibus Curantur calls for only one remedy at a time, keeping pace
with the fast moving society, great distance between the doctor
and the patient, and paucity of time with the patient, I am forced
to use certain combinations, which have brought good results in
my clinical practice. Dispensing of group remedies had also been
the practice of the great teacher Dr. Eric F. Powell, saving the
patients from getting worse and reaching a stage which was beyond re-medical aid and giving complete cure.
Only a few remedies, which I prescribed with success for
the specific disease in my daily practice are given, and this does
not in any way cover all the ailments of the human beings.
It is my strong and firm conviction, which I have had from
my experience, that if a disease is curable, homoeopathy will not
fail, provided of course every care is taken in selecting the
simillimum, administering it in proper dosages and it's repetition.
I am indeed greatly indebted to Dr. V.K. Gupta, firstly to
encourage me to get my work published, and secondly for his
very kindly going through the manuscript, writing the foreword,
and also suggesting the title of this work, "Homoeopathic
I am also extremely grateful to Mrs. Kiran Bedi, I.P.S., the
first most brave, honest and courageous lady police officer in the
country for very kindly writing the introduction.
Also, in this new edition I have arranged the diseases alphabetically.
I have great pleasure in writing the foreword for the book
entitled "Homoeopathic Therapeutic Compendium" by
Dr. P.S. Khokhar.
Dr. Khokhar has vast experience in homoeopathic practice.
From the notes of his day-to-day clinical practice, he has derived
many useful therapeutic hints, which he wishes to share with his
lam sure the busy professionals will find the ready reckoner
of these therapeutic hints immensely helpful and valuable in treating the patients.
It is both a matter of pride and pleasure for me to write
these few lines of introduction to this book of Dr. P.S. Khokhar.
Dr. Khokhar is a professional of long standing with a thorough knowledge and experience of homoeopathic system of medicine.
I had an opportunity of meeting Dr. Khokhar, first time in
the month of March, 1982, when my daughter Tara was suffering
from parenchymatous nephritis, the disease which did not yield
much to any system of medicine.
Dr. Khokhar was introduced to me by one of my lady assistants, all of whose family members were his patients and knew
I was very much reluctant to see Dr. Khokhar, because prior
to his treatment of my daughter, she already had homoeopathic
treatment from a noted homoeopath of Delhi, when she became
very serious and had to be hospitalised, and I had completely lost
my faith in homoeopathy.
As I was very much worried about the sickness of my daughter, and also due to the persistent and repeated requests from my
lady assistant, I changed my mind and agreed to consult Dr.
Khokhar. After an appointment with Dr. Khokhar, my parents,
my daughter, the lady doctor, who was treating her and myself
came to him. The case of my daughter and the homoeopathic
system of treatment were discussed in detail. The lady doctor
and all of us were fully convinced with his frank and informative
talk, and it was decided to hand over the case of my daughter to
him for the homoeopathic treatment.
Dr. Khokhar, before starting the treatment had forewarned
us about the approximate time that was required for the proper
treatment of my daughter.
My daughter remained under Dr. Khokhar's care for about
four years. She has been cured of all of her ailments, and now
leading a normal and happy life. She takes good interest in her
studies and games, especially tennis. She has great affection for
him, and he is like a grandfather to her.
Because, now I have known Dr. Khokhar for some years, I
have no hesitation in saying that he is totally devoted to
homoeopathy, that too for not any pecuniary gain, but for the
love and service of the medicine.
He is a highly devoted and religious person. He has been
seen curing his patients not only by his treatment through medicine, but also by his prayers. In brief he takes upon himself the
cure for his patients.
Before starting his practice, he had been under study of a
renowned homoeopath of Calcutta, late Dr. Kanjilal, from where
he acquired all the professional and human qualities.
He came from Assam to Delhi in October 1969 to settle
permanently and started his practice. In Assam, I believe, he had
an excellent reputation and was known for his accurate prescriptions. His book entitled "Homoeopathic Therapeutic Compendium" deals with the remedies in the treatment of diseases
homoeopathically. The homoeopathic remedies, I am told, act by
virtue of their activity, and not by their gross action. Therefore,
only the well selected and correct homoeopathic remedies will
feed the desired activity.
Dr. Khokhar has worked hard in compiling his original notes
into the shape of this book. I am sure this book will prove handy
and valuable to the students of homoeopathy, as well as the busy
I have profound regard for Dr. P.S. Khokhar, and wish him
