The website is all about the homoeopathic management of chronic illness in the non-institutional setting. The blog articles will deal with five broad categories of information. 

The principles of vitalistic medicine

It seems to me that the vitalistic origins of homoeopathic medicine have been forgotten and its place has been taken by a glamorous scientism. I'd like to redress the situation by restoring a practical vitalism.

The concepts of homeopathic medicine

Let's be clear about this: I'm talking about homeopathic vitalistic medicine. I shall be providing a vitalistic context for considering the kind of clinical decisions you as practitioner will be involved in daily. Sounds mysterious; is practical. 

Principles of prescribing

I'm not talking about repertorising, but about a systematic way of arriving at the correct, complete prescription, including potency selection and posology or dosage.  

The technology of case management

Homoeopathic case management is not easy, and yet it consists essentially of only two parts: case taking and prescribing. The key to success in homoeopathic case management is knowing the technology well. There will be a comprehensive series of blog articles dealing with 

・Case analysis

・The design of treatment strategies

・What to do when the patient returns (also known as the follow-up or second prescription). 

Common but problematic case management scenarios

I plan on covering the following general case scenarios:

Group disease 

Genetic disorders 

The prophylactic use of homeopathic

Treatment in the case that is obscured by the presence of toxicity

Treatment where there is a history of is the substance abuse

The problem of iatrogenic disorders, and how they may be addressed

The treatment of the patient who presents with several aetiologies, a situation that renders analysis difficult

Treatment in a case that has become confused by incorrect prescribing: the disordered case

The special needs of the incurable patient

The management of the patient who is dying.
