In the treatment with homoeopathic medicine requires skilful observation of the physician and the characteristics feature of case of disease, to get cure of a case in shortest period of time. While treating to acute as well as chronic cases, physician should focus on characteristic features of the case. Modalities are the one of the characteristic symptoms which helps to find prescribing totality in the case of disease. The time modalities giving an idea for specifying remedy. In this regards the homoeopathic text named ‘repertory of homoeopathic materia medica’ offers better and easy way to find the rubric of time modalities within shortest period of time that helps to examine specific cases appropriately. When rubric is covered by a single remedy, the remedy is very useful for selection of similimum. Here I Have tried to collect all the rubrics of mind related to time modality having single remedy from Kent’s repertory.
Keywords: Homeopathy, Repertory, time modality, mind, single Remedy, single rubric
A modality is the way or mode in which something exists or is done. You might often see it used with reference to diagnostic modality, which is the way in which a disease or illness is diagnosed by a physician. Modality shares its root with the word mode, meaning “the way in which something happens or is experienced.” A sensory modality is a way of sensing, like vision or hearing. Modality in someone’s voice gives a sense of the person’s mood. In logic, modality has to do with whether a proposition is necessary, possible, or impossible and similarly the time modality shows the patient’s better and worse conditions in a whole day from sunrise to sunset and vice versa. In general, a modality is a particular way in which something exists. In Homoeopathy medicine acts dynamically and administered in the required potency and doses to cure the case of diseases, within shortest period of time. While the treating the cases homoeopathically, modalities plays important role in finalizing similimum out of group of remedies arising after repertorisation. Depending on the symptoms of generalities as like patient’s aggravations and amelioration, desires and aversion, likes and dislikes etc. the medicine are specify in repertory by Dr. Kent. Modality offers great advantages to find out similimum, as they form the core of totality which Influence the choice of remedy. Present article summaries time modality in the mind chapter of repertory with single remedy rubrics that helps in the selecting similimum in case of disease. The alphabetical sequencing of these time modalities is depicted are as.
