Two decades ago, Dr.Jan Scholten gave a great contribution to development of Homoeopathy with the understanding of theme or constitution of the element of the periodic table. A Periodic table are an essential tool in analyzing the case and finding the exact similimum remedy. Periodic table includes 18 columns (transverse) and 7 rows (horizontal). According to Scholten all elements in each row (horizontal) characterized by single common theme. The 18 columns can also called as stages as they represent the stages in the developmental cycle of the life like in the left side they are incapable , in the center they are successful and in the right they has giving up feeling. Scholtens element theory explains the idea to homoeopaths to find a similimum for patient. He has created a framework to take homoeopaths central approach and has opened up a great number of previously inaccessible remedies. This article resumes the Scholtens theory and introduce the concept of the periodic table theme with Material Medica and Repertory.

Homoeopathy has a medical approach more than 200 years, is known as third most commonly used healing system in worldwide and for that reason it deserves the serious attention from the modern scientific community. Dr.Jan scholten renowned and eminent homoeopath has explained about theme of minerals in periodic table. The minerals have been used as homoeopathic remedy since beginning (ex. Sulp.), however until recently the major source of Materia Medica has been the plant kingdom. This scenario has changed with the contribution of Jan Scholten to understanding the homoeopathic constitution of the elements of the periodic table and the salts resulting from their combination.. According to Dr.Scholten the periodic table has proven to be reliable system to describe and predict the chemical and physical properties of the element as the chemical order of the element in the periodic table shows certain phases and sequences of the human development. The rows (horizontal) of periodic table can be seen replica of development of person starting from conception and ending in old age and death.

They need to be free and act with self-control, and self-determination so they dislikes being controlled and manipulated. They have strong intellectual capacity and they have desire of wisdom, spirituality. In the periodic table each row is divided into 18 column (transverse) or stages. They corresponds to electron configuration in the outer shell of atom so they shows chemical behavior of the specific element. Scholtan has classifieds each stage according to their theme. The main theme of each column are,1) Beginning stage, 2) Finding a space stage, 3)Comparing stage, 4) Establishing stage, 5) Preparing stage, 6) Proving stage, 7) Practicing stage, 8) Perseverance, 9)Success in sight stage, 10)Success, 11)Pressure, 12)defending, 13)Retiring, 14)formal, 15)Loss, 16) Remembering, 17)Letting go, 18)rest.
