H.C. Allen's Keynotes and Characteristics is the most indispensable basic Materia Medica of Homeopathy, knowledge of which every homeopath must possess. Prescriber to Allen's Keynotes and Characteristics fills the need for a concise, to-the-point, quick-reference guide for prescribing on keynotes and redline symptoms. It is very useful for students, beginners and practitioners, especially in situations where one does not have the time or the circumstances to take a detailed case history or go through the process of repertorisation.
Symptoms are given under different headings like Mind, Brain, Nerves, Face, Respiratory organs, Digestive system, Urinary organs, Genitalia, Skin, Fever, Constitutional diseases, Drunkard's diseases, Pregnancy troubles, Bruises, etc. and clinical representation of symptoms with drug indication is very useful.
A quick flick through a few pages will lead you to the required remedy plus the comparative remedies mentioned alongside the symptoms.
This book basically enhances the utility of Allen's Keynotes by way of quicker application in the practical field, as this book compiles as a systematic prescriber.
H.C. Allen's Keynotes and Characteristics is the most indispensable basic Materia Medica of Homoeopathy, knowledge of which every Homoeopath must possess. For this reason, on merit, it is used as the first book of Materia Medica in most of the Homoeopathic Colleges/ Institutes.
In the modern competitive and fast-going world, the patients want quick treatment and the physicians cannot afford to spend much time in making references and cross-references to various broadly indicated remedies in the Materia Medica for comparison and differentiation to arrive at the most indicated remedy.
In order to enhance the utility of Allen's Keynotes by way of quicker application in the practical field, one of my Homoeopath friends expressed some years back that it would be very useful if Allen's Keynotes become available in the shape of a systematic prescriber, but it would be a very tedious job to prepare it. Knowing my nature of seeking happiness and taking pride in accomplishing difficult tasks, he hinted in a somewhat challenging manner if I could prepare such a Guide. My reply was that God willing, I would endeavour to do so. I had, therefore, to put in very extensive and intensive mental labour for quite a long time in compiling this prescriber in a systematic way.
I approached M/s B. Jain Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi (the most renowned publishers of Homoeopathic books) for its publication after getting it approved by their Board of Experts. I am glad that it has been approved by them and it is intended to be published now.
I started the study and practice of Homoeopathy as hobby in 1950 and as social service since 1970. In all humility, this compilation is dedicated to the students and the practitioners of Homoeopathy in a spirit of true service and real assistance to them in the efficient practice of Homoeopathy.
