2 Chapter on prescribing on the basis of suppression is very useful as many times patient comes   from other physicians and after trying other modes of treatment thus their symptoms become suppressed giving rise to other dangerous symptoms and affecting more important organs

3 chapter on prescription the basis of prophylactic and genus epidemicus is helpful in using homeopathic medicines as preventive as homeopathy has proved its importance as preventive and in ways is far superior than vaccination

5 Chapters on Blood investigations is also very helpful in cases when pathological investigations come to rescue of homeopaths when there is lack of symptoms’ i
