ABSTRACT

Background
Repertory of Herings Guiding Symptoms of Our Materia Medica, by Calvin
B. Knerr is one among the two Concordance repertories. In this repertory, there are 48
chapters arranged in Hahnemannian schema. Herings Guiding Symptoms of Our Materia
Medica forms the basis of this Repertory. Knerr used the same signs & symbols as given
in the Guiding Symptoms.

Objectives
Plan, construction, scope, limitation and special features of Repertory of
Herings Guiding Symptoms of Our Materia Medica.
Make a comprehensive study of this repertory in clinical practice.

Methodology
The first objective, the study of the repertory is explored in detail, along with
the comparative study of Original and Augmented & Revised edition, especially the
practical guideline to locate the rubric, and its cross references, along with the special
features.
To achieve the second objective the subjects were selected from the Out Patient
Department of Fr. Muller Homoeopathic Medical College, as per the inclusion criteria.

xi

Result
Out of 30 cases, marked improvement showed by 18 cases (60%), improvement
shown but not fully showed by 3 cases (10%) and partial improvement showed by 6 cases
(20%) and 3 cases (10%) were not improved.

Conclusion
Conclusion of first objective are, Cases having characteristic particulars,
concomitants, pathological and clinical symptoms can be repertorized with the help of
this repertory, which is difficult to get it in other repertories.
Conclusion of second objective are, any type of diagnosed case can treat with the
help of this repertory, if case present with characteristic symptoms. Acute as well as
chronic cases can refer in this repertory.

Key words: Knerrs Concordance Repertory.

INTRODUCTION

The highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of the
health, or removal and annihilation of the disease in its whole extent, in the shortest,
most reliable, and most harmless way, on easily comprehensible principles

Homoeopathy the only medical system having unique comprehensible principle
Similia similibus curentur in treating the sick.
Constantine Hering said: If our school ever gives up the strict inductive method
of Hahnemann we are lost and deserve only to be mentioned as a caricature in the history
of medicine.
1

Homoeopathy is a science and an art and the repertory is the artistic composition
of the results of scientific proving of medicines (pieces), recorded in the Materia Medica
and then reproduced (reperire) in the repertory
2
.
Repertory is a systematically and logically arranged index to the symptoms of
homoeopathic Materia Medica, which is full of information collected from toxicology,
drug proving and clinical experience.
3

The repertory is an outcome of logical human mind. The purpose of a repertory is
to facilitate the search for the most similar remedy or remedies corresponding to a given
set of symptoms.
4

As early as in 1805 Dr. Hahnemann in his book Fragmenta De Viribis Medica
Mentorum introduced the idea by adding an index of symptoms in the second part.
2

However it was his immediate disciple, Clemens Von Boenninghausen, who can be
credited with creating the first usable repertory in 1832.
Dr. Hahnemann quotes in the footnote of aphorism 153 as: Dr. Von
Boenninghausen, by the publication of the characteristic symptoms of homoeopathic
medicines and his Repertory rendered a great service to Homoeopathy as well as Dr. J.
H.G. Jahr in his handbook of principal symptoms.
5

In our homoeopathy, a physician with normal human brain cant able to memorize
all the symptoms in our Materia Medica. Even for our great master Hahnemann, in his
own time, felt the need for an index or repertory to the ever growing Materia Medica to
find out the similimum. There arises the emerging of the Repertory.
To quote Dr. P. Schmidt, No one can know everything and that is why in all
honesty one must admit that no conscientious Homoeopathic doctor can practise
Homoeopathy in a serious and really scientific way without a Repertory.
6

It is the organic vital force of our body which cures natural diseases of every kind
directly and without any sacrifices as soon as it is enabled by means of the correct
(homoeopathic) remedies to win the victory.
7
This victory (cure) can be achieved only
through symptom similarity. i.e. Similimum. So, Similimum is the goal for every
homoeopath in every case.
The entire gamut of activities case taking, symptom analysis, repertorial
investigations- is totally devoted to finding this similimum. Each master had his own way
of going about it.
8
One such way in finding out the similimum is through repertory. One
such repertory in finding out the similimum is through Knerrs repertory.
3

Dr. Calvin B. Knerr, son in law and student of Dr. Hering, felt the need in
indexing The Guiding symptoms of our Materia Medica, to make it more useful. The
outcome was a voluminous repertory known as Repertory of Herings Guiding symptoms
of our Materia Medica. Dr. Knerr spent nearly five years to prepare repertory for this
voluminous Materia Medica. He carefully arranged each and every rubric without much
change from the provers words. He followed the same gradation to the symptoms as it is
in the Guiding symptoms of our Materia Medica.
Though this repertory forms the solid bedrock for many other repertories (like
Murphy & Kent), it is used less frequently by our homoeopathic fraternity in their daily
practice. If an ardent lover of repertory who opens this repertory,he/she cant resist his/
her desire to keep it aside easily without reading it. So, when you ponder over each and
every page of this repertory, you will get mine of treasures, which are full of concomitant
& characteristic symptoms, on which our prescription is based.
Most of the times we tend to err in converting the patients symptoms into rubric
and ultimately ending with a poor result in the process of repertorization as well as in
getting exact similimum. This concordance repertory is one of the few repertories where
symptoms have been placed unbroken by preserving the original words or expressions of
the provers as well as patients so that they retain the most delicate shades of meanings.
Thus they maintain the individuality which is very vital in selection of the similimum.
The special features of this repertory is rubrics are taken not only from the drug
proving, but also from the accidental toxicological proving, clinically cured symptoms
and verified symptoms, symptoms coincindental with the old system of medicine, etc.,
are included in this repertory.
4

Knerrs repertory is full of concomitants, cured and diagnostic rubrics. The most
useful, but the most neglected repertory in our clinical practice, which is yet to unearth its
efficacy. One of the difficulty in using this Knerrs repertory is its overtly complex
arrangement of rubrics, which is rectified by Dr. P. Sivaraman, by making it user friendly
format of Kents repertory, by rearranging the previous original 48 chapters into 35
chapters in Kents repertory format, which includes stages of life & constitution,
Relationship chapters.
So here I made an humble attempt in showing the plan, construction and special
features of Knerrs repertory in detail (with the comparative study of Original and
Augmented & Revised edition) and its importance in clinical practice.



5

OBJECTIVES


To study the plan, construction, scope, limitation and special features of
Repertory of Herings Guiding Symptoms of Our Materia Medica in detail
along with the comparison of Original and Augmented & Revised edition.

To highlight the importance of Knerrs repertory in clinical practice.

REVIEW OF LITERATURE

REPERTORY
9
--- Latin word
REPERTOIRE REPRODUCTION
-- Latin word
(In French its meaning
Is storehouse)
REPERTORIUM RE + PARIRE
Latin word--- (Again) (To bring forth)
REPERTUS
---Past participle
REPERIRE


The term Repertory corresponds to the Latin word repertorium which originates
from reperie, to find; re, again; parere, to bring forth. It means a place where things
are kept to brought forth again, an inventory, a table or compendium where the contents
are so arranged that they are easy to find. This easy to find is the most important part
of the sense of the word.
10

The Repertoy is then essentially a book where we keep our armamentarium,
namely medicines, in an orderly way to be used at times for fighting diseases in our
patients The remedies are the weapons and the rubrics or symptomatic indications are
7

the niches or pigeon-holes where the weapons are arranged in a definite order with proper
gradations. The pigeon-holes or rubrics are arranged in such an orderly way that they can
be spotted as quickly as during the fight with disease, so that the appropriate weapon can
be picked up without harmful delay
10
.
Chambers Dictionary gives meaning as As storehouse, repository, store or
collection, especially or information, instances, facts, etc.
9

Brainy Dictionary gives meaning as a treasury, a magazine, and a storehouse.

ORIGIN OF CONCEPT OF REPERTORY:
11

Hahnemann demonstrated the procedure of working of two cases in Materia
Medica Pura which gave some idea about his concept on which repertorisation stands
today. He wrote in the preamble to Materia Medica Pura that for the convenience of
treatment we require to jot down all the medicines which they occur expressing the
medicines in short by a few letters and proceed in same way with all other symptoms.
From the list thus prepared, we shall be able to perceive the remedy sought for, which
covers homoeopathically most of the symptoms especially the most peculiar and
characteristic ones. And thus was born the Concept of Repertory and Repertorisation.

THE FIRST REPERTORIAN:
12
The introduction and development of the Homoeopathic Materia Medica by
Hahnemann was a unique phenomenon in the history of medicine. No system of
medicine had discovered and put down in ink such minute details about medicines and
their characteristics. All these facts were mostly noted from experiments on healthy
8

human beings. As the volume of the Homoeopathic Materia Medica expanded and
remedies multiplied, it became a problem to apply his knowledge according to the
directions laid down by Hahnemann. In his own time, Hahnemann, too, became
conscious about the need for suitable indices to the growing Materia Medica. As early
as 1805 in his famous Framenta de viribus medica mentorum positivis published in
Latin, the first part contained symptoms which were observed in the provers and second
part formed the index, or the repertory. It is, thus seen that Hahnemann was the first
Repertorian or father of Homoeopathic Repertory.


TRIPOD OF HOMOEOPATHY:
10
Importance of repertory in homoeopathic practice:
The sole and only source of learning and getting familiar with the language of
various diseases is the Materia Medica. Materia Medica is thus the basic literature of the
language of Disease. The more we can assimilate this literature the more adroit we
become in dealing with diseases, and there is no limit to the depth and width of this
assimilation.
The Repertory serves this purpose as the Dictionary of the language of Diseases,
being the index of myriads of clearly depicted symptoms, arranged under a definite order
and principle, each symptom pointing towards a list of remedies with their respective
grades and ranks.
Effective study and utilisation of the literature (materia medica) and dictionary
(repertory), depend upon sufficient grasp on the grammar. And the Organon serves the
role of the grammar of diseases.
9

Thus the rational system of Medicine of Homoeopathy stands on a tripod of three
legs constituted by Materia Medica, Repertory and the Organon respectively, closely and
inseparably related to each other. It can ever afford to ignore or even slight any of its
legs if it has to stand and move steadily.
The Repertorial method is not mechanical method but it is a most scientific and
intelligent one and requires deep understanding. Repertory is our chief instrument of
precision.
13

The use of the repertory is one of the higher branches of our art and before it can
be mastered the laws governing the homoeopathic treatment and cure of diseases, as
given to us in the Organon and the Chronic Diseases must be learnt.
13


VARIOUS STALWARTS OPINES ABOUT REPERTORY:
Dr. J. H. Clarke
It is impossible to practice homoeopathy without the aid of repertories and the
best repertory is the fullest
3
.
Dr. Barthel and Dr. Will Klunker
The need for the repertory comes from the character of homoeopathy itself.
3
.
R. Van Zandvoort
A repertory is an index to the Materia Medica. It is the back pages Materia
Medica, so to say, a register
3
.
J. T. Kent
The physician who masters the use of the repertory usually makes the most rapid
prescriber.
14
10

Boger
The more the well-grounded homeopath reads and sees of allopathic practice, the
firmer will be his conviction that all the true cures finally rest on a homeopathic basis
14
.
Boger
Every repertory is useful, unfortunately not one is complete
14
.

WHY DO WE HAVE A REPERTORY?
13
We have a Repertory in order to know what medicine or medicines we have for
symptoms of case, as we cannot remember or memorise all symptoms of drug provings.
Dr. Boenninghausen writes, It is far more difficult for the inexperienced
homoeopathist to cure patients even with a few symptoms without a repertory, because
many remedies seem to correspond (34p, XII, Preface).
The Repertory was never made or intended to take the place of the Materia
Medica; I cannot lay too great stress o the fact that t must never replace our constant
study and use of the pathogenesis of our remedies.

FUNCTIONS OF REPERTORY
15

A repertory has two main functions for which it was required and designed by the
Master. It essentially works as well calculated ready reckoner and an index of symptoms
along with their related remedies with an especial scheme of arrangement. So it is an
shortcut of Materia Medica.
11

It is prepared with the intentions to help a physician in his practice eliminating the
need of tiresome task of memorising. Besides, it gives all in one place and thus specifies
a limited field of investigation for the practitioner.

CLASSIFICATION OF REPERTORIES
Repertories have been classified into various groups by different
authorities, but no standard classification prevails. The most comprehensible
classification would be as follows
The puritan group:
9
The puritan group insists on maintaining the purit y of symptoms as
described and recorded in the words of the provers or physicians. Puritan
groups of repertories are good for reference purpose where the clear cut
Symptoms with their peculiarities are present. But it is not at all good for
repertorization by arithmetic calculation of totality. This group is also called
Concordance repertories.
E.g.
- Dr. C. B. Knerr's repertory of Hering's Guiding Symptoms of our Materia
Medica
- Dr. W. D. Gentry's Concordance Repertory.
The logico-utilitarian group:
9
The logico utilitarian group does not care so much for the actual words,
but gives sole values to the essence and real meaning of symptoms. These
repert ori es are better clarified and easy to study, even for reference purpose.
12

Arithmetic calculation by proper repertorization is possible for finding out
the similimum by totality.
These repertories have distinctive principles of thei r own. Therefore
cases have to be sel ect ed t o fit them well with principles. In these
repertories the symptoms may not be found in the language of the Materia
Medica but the symptoms change their form to fit into the arrangement of the
repertories.
E.g.
Dr. Boenninghausen's Therapeutic pocket Book.
Dr. J. T. Kent's Repertory of Homoeopathic Materia Medica

Knerr repertory comes under the puritan group of repertories, which is based on
Herring Guiding symptoms of our Materia Medica. "This belongs to the Puritan type of
repertories, where the symptom of the patient is recorded without much change. This
repertory also belongs to the group of concordance repertories.
The word "concordance" means a state of being of the same heart and mind, a harmony, a
harmonious arrangement of the symptoms. This word was first used in Homeopathy by
Boenninghausen in Therapeutic pocket book. The word concordance was replaced by
"Relationship of remedies" in later edition of Allen.
16

The history of homoeopathy is made of many people, but Constantine Hering
stands as a Colossus. He was a man of iron constitution, who never seemed to tire or to
need time for rest and relaxation. He was a worthy successor to Hahnemann.
17
Herings
favourite saying was, change of occupation is rest
17
13

LIFE OF HERING & HIS CONTRIBUTION:
18
Constantine Hering, M.D., the father of homeopathy in America, was born on
January 1, 1800 in Oschatz, Saxony, in Germany, the son of Magister Karl Gottlieb
Hering who was both a musician and an author and known for developing a simplified
system of teaching music to children, which was adopted by the schools in Germany.
Herings earliest education was in classical studies, though he began his education in
medicine at an early age at a surgical academy in Dresden in 1817. By 1820, he was
studying at the University of Leipzig, where he became a dedicated practitioner of
homeopathy and an advocate for Samuel Hahnemann, the father of homeopathic
medicine. Herings interest in homeopathy is traced back to a dissecting wound
incurred during a postmortem examination, At the time of this accident such injuries were
typically treated by amputation, but he refused and was instead treated successfully by
homeopathy. Hering received the degree of doctor of medicine from the University of
Wurzburg in 1826.
After his graduation from the University of Wurzburg, "he was appointed to go to
Surinam, South America, by the King of Saxony, to make researches in Zoology and
Botany, While there, he continued working with homeopathy, despite its lack of
popularity, by lecturing in Paramaribo, working in a hospital and practicing in a leper
colony.
In 1833, Hering immigrated to Philadelphia and opened a medical practice with a
friend and former student, Dr. Bute. Together, they also founded the Hahnemannian
Society of Philadelphia. In the years that followed, Hering actively promoted
homeopathy and worked to create an appropriate school in which it could be taught. In
14

1835, along with several other doctors, he founded the North American Academy of
Homeopathic Medicine in Allentown, Pennsylvania, often called the Allentown
Academy, and served as its first president. The name of the Academy was changed to the
North American Academy of the Homeopathic Healing Arts in 1836 and it continued
until 1842. In 1838, the Homeopathic Medical Society of Philadelphia was founded and
in 1848, with Drs. Jeanes and Williamson, Hering founded the Homeopathic Medical
College of Pennsylvania. Herings "work in proving drugs was greater than that of any
other physician, and he started the American Provers Union in 1852. In 1867, he started
the Hahnemann Medical College of Philadelphia. Hering was also involved in the
publication of scholarly journals and in 1835, he published the first issue of the American
Journal of Homeopathy. Other journals, such as the North American Homeopathic
Journal and the Philadelphia Journal of Homeopathy were established in 1851 and 1852,
respectively. Hering continued to practice medicine until his death on July 23, 1880.

The
funeral was held on July 28, 1880, the 52
nd
anniversary of his first Lachesis proving.
Hering was a prolific writer and published a number of book length works, some
of which include:
Domestic Physician, (1835),
Effects of Snake Poison, (1836),
Proposition to Suppress Homeopathy,(1846),
American Drug Provings, (1857),
The Logic of Homeopathy, (1860s), and
Materia Medica (1873).

15

In addition to his medical career, Herings special hero was the great Paracelsus
of whose works he had the finest collection extant [and which] were secured by and
deposited in the library of the Hahnemann Medical College of Philadelphia,"
In a biographical sketch, Dr. Hering is described as a model citizen and patriot, a
humanitarian of the noblest kind, a German in soul and mind; once deeply rooted in home
soil and richly nurtured by it to bloom and bring a thousand fold fruit among us here as
an American citizen; a pioneer in a great and noble cause, the profession of healing in the
best and truest meaning of the term," According to one of his obituaries, Hering was
married three times and had twelve children. His daughter,Melitta, married Dr. Calvin B.
Knerr in 1873.
Hering was the first to use nitroglycerin (glonoin) in medicine for headaches and
heart problems (30 years before its first use in orthodox medicine). It is an irony that he
himself suddenly died one evening of a heart attack in 1880 after returning from a house
call to a patient.
19


HERINGS ADVICE ABOUT REPETITION OF DOSE:
20
Hering in his introductory part of The Domestic Physician, he gave valuable
advice regarding repetition of medicine and dose as follows:
When the patient, after having taken the medicine once, or oftener, begins to feel
better, however little, he should discontinue it, lest the healthful progress of the cure be
interfered with by taking too much; but as soon as the improvement ceases the same
medicine should be taken again; or in case the symptoms have altered, another more
appropriate one.

16

HERING- AN ARDENT LOVER OF HOMOEOPATHY:
Dr. Hering compiled the first English language repertory, entitled An Analytical
Repertory of the symptoms of the mind in 1838
21
.
Hering said in his introductory part of Analytical symptoms of Materia Medica of mind:

If the arduous labor bestowed for years upon this work should render efficient aid
to all who are earnestly trying to heal the sick, if it should enable them to select in
most cases, entrusted to their care, the proper drug, the author will be richly
repaid for all his exertions. Yet, at the same time, he hopes that it will gradually
lead some beginners into the right way of the true Hahnemannian school: always
to individualize.
22

In the introductory part of, The Guiding Symptoms of our Materia Medica, he writes:
"It has been my rule through life never to accept anything as true, unless it came
as near mathematical proof as possible in its domain of science; and, in the other
hand, never to reject anything as false, unless there was stronger proof of its
falsity.
23

LIFE HISTORY OF KNERR
Calvin Brobst Knerr

was born on December 27, 1847 and grew up with a
father who was a lay homeopath and an uncle who knew Hering at the Allentown
Academy. He attended the Allentown College Institute and graduated from
Hahnemann Medical College in 1869 (along with Cowperthwaite and T.L.
Bradford). He then entered the office of Dr. Constantine Hering as his assistant.
The diary he kept while living in Hering's house became The Life of Hering,
published in 1940.
17

From 1873-4 Dr. Knerr studied in Berlin, Vienna, and London. In
1874 he married Melitta Hering, one of Hering's daughters, and resumed his
duties as Hering' s assistant . In 1878 and 1879 he published 2 editions of his
book, Sunstroke and Its Homeopathic Treatment.
Knerr studied under Constantine Hering and the two became close friends. After
graduating, he worked as Herings assistant, helping to edit Herings manuscript for The
Guiding Symptoms of Our Materia Medica. Knerr was a devoted son-in-law, employee,
colleague, and friend to Hering. He dedicated much energy to gathering, translating and
preserving some of Herings papers and he also wrote and published Repertory of
Herings Guiding Symptoms as well as a biography, The Life of Hering. Following
Herings death in 1880, Knerr took over his practice. Calvin and Melitta Hering Knerr
had four children: Bayard, Harold, Mildred and Horace. Harold Knerr was a cartoonist
and known for his comic strip, "The Katzenjammer Kids."
18

Upon Hering's death in 1880 Knerr became responsible for the
completion of the 10-volume Guiding Symptoms. Originally working with Dr.
Charles Mohr and Dr. Charles Raue, and later working alone, Knerr completed
Hering's masterpiece in 1895.
Dr. Knerr spent 5 years writing his 2-volume Repertory to the Guiding
Symptoms, which was published in 1896. This repertory to Hering's Mateiia
Medica never saw widespread use. Knerr compiled this repertory from Hering's
10 volumes. Knerr used the same structure throughout as found in the
Guiding Symptoms, even to including the relation ships at the end of the
book and giving the remedies the four lines of grading.
18

For a considerable length of time Knerr's repert ory remained out of print.
After a prolonged correspondence Dr. Knerr agreed to grant Messrs. M.
Bhattacharyya and Co. the exclusive right of publication. He revised the whole
work, portions of which he wrote anew for this edition.
In the 1941 Homoeopathic Herald memoriam Dr. W. A, Pearson
writes, "His home on Camac Street was filled with books, pictures and
mementoes pertaining to homoeopathy. The original letters (1813-1836) written
to Constantine Hering by Samuel Hahnemann were probably the most prized
possession."
''Several of these letters have been published in Hospital Tidings during
the past year and afford much reliable information concerning Homoeopathy.
Most of these historic treasures have been presented to The Hahnemann Medical
College."
His was a life of unceasing work, and even when confined to bed he
actually prescribed for his patients. He died on September 30, 1940.
To quote Pearson again, "Dr. Knerr lived a long and useful life and we
should rejoice that he fulfilled a very i mportant mission so ably." Julian
Winston writes: Although it mixes pathogenic and clinical data, it contains
several rubrics that cannot be found anywhere else. His works will live after
him; coming generations will profit by them, and like the present wi ll honor his
memory.

ABOUT KNERR REPERTORY

Jugal Kishore opines:
Knerrs Repertory was basically supposed to be an index of Herings Guiding
Symptoms ( like Allens Symptom Register as the index to his Encyclopaedia),
was prepared by Dr. Calvin B. Knerr. Both Allen and Hering were prodigious
workers, but Allen left more of his original works written by himself, whereas
Herings legacy was completed by his students and family members. Even
Guiding Symptoms were not completed in his life time, and some of the later
20

volumes were completed posthumously, from his hand written notes etc., but the
style and data were copied according to his own planning and design.
12

Knerr, in his Repertory, has divided the book into chapters, according to Herings
plan of regions in his Guiding Symptoms.
12

The basic difference of this index or Repertory from that of Allens Register, is
that it contains symptoms and remedies which have had not only proving and
toxicological pathogeneses, but had also clinical provings and confirmations.
12

This is one of the main Repertories (apart from that of Hale, Jahr and Hempel),
where the symptoms have been placed unbroken, as far as possible. Let us take
the example of a mental symptom Forgetful. He has listed first, all the remedies
which have forgetfulness in general. This is followed by smaller rubrics, which
have special association with a particular circumstance or condition, or are related
to a specific time frame. All these are given alphabetically.
12

Knerr gives a cross reference to rubrics like Company, Dissatisfied, and
Hate. In this rubric on Hate, he has given Hates women Puls. Apparently,
aversion to women may extend to Hate, and he has, thus, given them at two
different places.
12

Knerr, however, has, at times, done too much of hair-splitting also. For example,
he has separated fear symptoms into three areas (a) Apprehension (b) Anxiety
(c) Fear, where as Kent has referred to see Anxiety, Fear etc. In respect of
Apprehension, and I think, it is rightly so.
12


21

SPECIALITIES ABOUT KNERR REPERTORY:
Dr. D. P. Rastogi opines regarding the placement of rubrics:

In comparison to Kents Repertory, rubric placing is more appropriate in Knerrs


Repertory e.g., Jaundice has been placed under the section Liver; Gall stones has
been given a separate rubric.
25


Dr. Muthukumar, in Homoeopathic Heritage wrote an article - Knerrs Repertory
in Practice, in that he explains about Knerrs Repertory as follows:
8

Similimum is the goal for every homoeopath in every case. The entire gamut of
activities case taking, symptom analysis, reportorial investigations- is totally devoted to
finding this similimum. Each master had his own way of going about it. Kent went for
mentals and generals as much as Boenninghausen went in for the completion of
symptoms through analogy. Their writings and repertories reflect their ideas.
What special characteristic does Knerrs repertory set apart from these? what do
we have to know to use it to its fullest potential? And what is its arrangement?
As in the guiding symptoms, so in the repertory; original readings, the words of
the prover and the clinician are preserved to the letter, it being thought preferable to
retain the most delicate shades of meaning, occasionally even different wordings of the
same symptoms, by taking refuge in an extra rubric or cross reference, fuse or commingle
in a vague generalization at the sacrifice of individuality.
This repertory is a faithful reproduction of the guiding symptoms, its contents
classified and indexed. But it can no way can take the place of the larger work.
22

In a repertory, we have separation by analysis for the purpose of classification and
ready reference; in Materia Medica combination by synthesis to enable us to study drug
effects in their grand unity and relationship
26
.
Anyone with a working knowledge of Kent or Boenninghausen should not have
any problem in using Knerr. In Kent it is sensation, location, conditions and extension.
In Boenninghausen the location the location is given first then sensations, modalities and
concomitants. In Knerr it is completely alphabetical in each chapter.

In using Knerrs Repertory please keep in mind the following:
8
Knerrs repertory
(a) Is mainly BASED ON CONCOMITANTS
(b) Is a repertory of CURED SYMPTOMS
(c) Is a clinical repertory. PATHOLOGICAL and DIAGNOSTIC names are given to
the fullest.
(d) Is based on symptoms AS TOLD BY PROVERS AND PATIENTS and AS
OBSERVED and REPORTED BY PHYSICIANS.
(A). Concomitants and Knerrs Repertory:
We have always heard of the importance of concomitants. If you get a good,
clear-cut symptom without dragging it out from the mouth of the patient, and get a clear
concomitant, three fourths of your job is over and prescribing on concomitants is best
done with the help of Knerrs repertory.
A 47 year old spinster developed primary polydipsia. She developed enormous
thirst for cold water and the body reacted with enormous urge to urinate. She spent her
23

life urinating hourly day and night. She had really pissed out of life. She also
complained of terrible weakness. Based on this a leading homoeopath had given her
China and then Phosphoric acid, both of which aggravated her condition and made her
thirst more. What could be done? I looked into Knerr. P-610 (of old edition)- Urine
increased with weakness Calc. Phos. With thirst Kali br. (Patient stressed the
weakness. It was the weakness which drove her to take treatment). Calc. Phos in various
potencies gave her a new life.
(B). Cured symptoms:
In using Knerrs repertory we should never forget that this is based on Herings
10 volumes which also include A COLLECTION OF CURED SYMPTOMS.
What is cured symptom? Suppose a patient comes to us with dry cough, with
scanty expectoration and with fever. We diagnose it as bronchitis. He is absolutely
thirstless and has a marked aversion to fats. He responds to Pulsatilla.
Now I construct a materia medica of Pulsatilla where not only the last two
individualising symptoms of Pulsatilla but the INITIAL PATHOGENETIC SYMPTOMS
COMPLAINED OF AND CURED BY PULSATILLA (dry cough, expectoration scanty,
fever) are include. Dry cough, scanty expectoration and fever are cured symptoms of
Pulsatilla. Herings 10 volumes are mainly based on such cured symptoms and Knerrs
repertory therefore is a repertory of cured symptoms.
What is the advantage? The advantage is, as COMPLAINED AND CURED
SYMPTOMS are themselves found in the repertory, the PATIENTS COMPLAINTS AS
SUCH CAN BE USED FOR REPERTORISING. There need not be too much chasing
24

after the mentals and generals, and no special symptom completion as in
Boenninghausen.
I know that I am stirring a hornets nest and could become the punch-bag of
classical homoeopaths. No importance of mental symptoms? As far as I am concerned,
mental disposition is only one aspect of the case. (see p-14 of analytical mm)
The important point is to arrive at the similimum irrespective of how, whether by
mental symptoms or by pathological symptoms.
To illustrate my point; the patient is still under treatment. But please note the
symptoms on which the medicine was selected.
Mr. R, aged 38, has eczema in leg; had it in young age also. A few other
symptoms has nocturnal leg cramps, cramps beneath chin whenever he opens his mouth
wide. Of all the symptoms this mouth-opening bit looked more significant. (Note all
symptoms came spontaneously, I didnt drag out the symptoms. In old edition (P 870)
Neck cramp after opening mouth wide and then biting teeth Spong. Neck, cramplike
pain Spong.
Spongia 30 a few doses were given. Constitutionally he became better. ( Once
again please note the indicative symptoms)
(C). Is diagnosis important?
Diagnosis is very important as far as using Knerrs repertory is concerned. Dr.
Hering was master diagnostician. Knerrs repertory is the greatest clinical repertory we
have. By referring to rubrics having diagnostic labels the search for similimum is made
easier. In many cases where such a diagnosis is made, we can go directly to the
diagnostic rubric and refer to the remedies given there. Whenever a suitable
25

differentiating feature is available selection is made easy. It is pathetic to see how many
homeopaths pretend to be classical and decry the use of diagnosis and utility of organic
symptoms to remedy selection to cover up their inadequate knowledge of pathology. Of
course diagnosis and pathology may not help in many cases.
I can quote Dr. Bell in my support. In the introduction to his book on diarrhoea,
Dr. Bell says, It becomes evident therefore that the individualising symptoms possess
the greater value and are indeed indispensable to a certain selection
It should be noticed, further, that these distinguishing symptoms are of all kinds
and qualities, FROM THE PURELY OBJECTIVE AND PATHOLOGIVAL TO THE
MOST SUBJECTIVE AND DELICATE COMPLAINTS WHICH THE ORGANISM IS
CAPABLE OF PRODUCING. As instances of the former may be cited the green froth
stools of Magn. c; the dark acid urine of Benz. ac; the blue varices of Mur. ac; etc.
The father of a homoeopath had a heart problem. He had ischaemic heart disease
with block in many arteries. Bypass was contemplated but then given up as not of much
use. The patient was already on pace-maker. He developed angina even if he walked a
few steps, on taking food, on becoming emotional. All modalities pointed to the case
being on of < from exertion of any kind.
In Original editon (p 782), Inner chest, angina pectoris when exerting herself or
when excited. Cup.acet.
Cup.acet. 30 for a few days, then discontinued. Now for more than 3 months the
patient is absolutely symptom-free, and carrying out his routine activities without pain.
26

(D ). The importance of patients main complaint:
I want to stress here, once again, of the importance of patients own word and his
main complaint.
Mr. C, a car driver, came to me for his nocturnal emissions. He polluted in sleep
twice a week at least After every emission he used to have a peculiar problem that his
penis had become stiff and painful the next day morning.
In Original edition (P 623), Penis erection with painful tension without sexual
desire, in morning Cepa. I prescribed Allium cepa and provided good relief.
And here I would like to reiterate what every other homoeopathic teacher has said
Materia Medica is the last word; the final court of appeal.
You can select the medicine with mental symptoms, delusions, Causations,
Miasms or whatever. Remember all these are just guiding posts; they give an inkling, a
scent of the similimum. It is the Materia Media which does the selection.

PRESCRIPTIONS BASED ON KNERRS REPERTORY BY VARIOUS
AUTHORS:
The author (Dr.V. Krishnamurthy) has given certain cases from his practice based
on Knerrs repertory:
27
1. Superficial burns Cantharis. The remedy carbolic acid is for extensive burns
where deeper tissues are affected, (See Calvin B. Knerrs REPERTORY, page
1148, Injuries, burns, extensive, Carbol.ac.). A boiling tea was splashed on the
face, a lady lost her eyesight. Three hours after the accident a dose of Carbolic
27

acid-200 was given and it restored her vision in thirty minutes. For scalding
mouth or tongue with hottest food Hamammelis.
2. Most cases of fracture of the tibia bone continue to give trouble; does not heal.
One single dose of Anthracinum has cured all such cases. (See Calvin B. Knerrs
Repertory page 1148 Injuries, fractures.... of tibia, Anthrac.). Certain
symptoms cannot be classified in the repertory under any head. Therefore it is
better memorise and keep them on your finger-tip.

In a different article the same author has given some other cases:
28

The following incidence happened, while he was sitting in the clinic of a homoeopath:
A patient walked in asking the doctor whether he has medicine for diabetes. The
doctor started giving a lecture to the patient that he makes his prescription (?) on
symptoms and so the patient should first tell his symptoms.
The patient abruptly told, Feel my pulse (stretching his hand toward the doctor), give
medicine. The poor doctor turned to me and said, this is the problem patients do not
tell symptoms I told him to ask the patient to wait outside, then explained to him how
to classify or convert the very attitude/tone of this patient into a mind symptom. Let us
recall and recollect the way the patient talked and his tone. In olden days, the king would
talk as under: Let so-and-so- be brought before me alive or dead within twenty-four
hours! It is in the imperious manner (or royal language) with an air of command. The
manner of the king would be stiff and pretentious. So also, the above said diabetic patient
talked in a similar manner. Feel my pulse (stretching his hand) and give medicine.
28

In Calvin B. Knerrs Repertory, Mind (page 19) we find the following:
Answers, imperiously: Lyc.
Lycopodium 10M, one dose cured the patient of his diabetes. Even if he had any
other disease (other than diabetes, Lycopodium would have cured him).would cure the
condition in just a days time.

CLINICAL TIP FROM KNERR REPERTORY:
28
If the babe in the uterus stops growing, allopathy has no cure and they abort the
child, but if one single dose of the homoeopath medicine Secale Cornutum-10M is given,
the babe starts growing. (See Calvin B. Knerrs Repertory, p. 698. Pregnancy, foetus,
development arrested: Sec.)

AUTHORS COMPARATIVE STUDY OF KNERRS REPERTORY WITH
SAMUEL LILIENTHALS THERAPEUTICS IN A CASE:
29
Aswin, aged four, is brought by her mother for constant and chronic running nose
(fluent corya). I do not ask any question. (Any interruption would only break the chain of
thought of the narrator, and all they would have said at first does not again occur to them
in precisely the same manner after that. Foot-note to S.84 of the Organon). While I was
going through Dr. Calvin B. Knerrs Repertory, the boys mother breaks in, Doctor, he
is very angry at times. (At this stage I simply note in the casesheet the word anger).
I copy on the case-sheet the following portions from Knerrs Repertory.
NOSE, Coryza, Chronic: Calc., Canth, Colch, Cycl., Sil., Spig. (page 248).
MIND, Anger (plus above list); Calc.
29

Again, at this stage, the lady tells: Doctor, whenever he is at home on holidays,
running nose is not there. But whenever he goes to school, on those days, it is worse. To
classify this last symptom is a somewhat difficult job.
I now turn to HOMOEOPATHIC THRERAPEUTICS by Dr. Samuel Lilienthal.
At this stage, after a pause, the lady continues, Doctor, two years ago he was diagnosed
to be suffering from primary complex and we gave a course of allopathic treatment.
To classify the symptom (aggravation on the days of going to school) is a difficult
task. For primary complex the equivalent rubric in homoeopathy is phthisis (prodromal
stage).
I just glanced through Samuel Lilienthals Homoeopathic Therapeutics (page 858)
and under the chapter PHTHISIS PULMONUM the following lines under Calcarea
Carb. caught my attention:
...very susceptible to external influences, currents of air, cold, heat, noise,
excitement. When he goes to school he is exposed to air, noise, excitement and therefore
the above quoted line confirmed my selection of Calc. Carb.
I gave this in 10M potency in single dose and the patient is under treatment with
lot of improvement.

Though the use of this repertory is highlighted by different physicians, still its use
remains limited, because of its cumbersome arrangement/ plan & construction. So,
Dr. P. Sivaraman, attempted to simplify its arrangement by Augmenting & Revising the
Original format to the format of Kents Repertory, (which is well versed by all
homoeopathic professionals) and this is presented here as a comparative study.

SIMILARITIES BETWEEN OLD & NEW EDITION IN SYMBOLS & SIGNS:
-- the Greek "theta" standing between the cured symptom and the pathological
condition, or the physiological general state, throughout the guiding symptom, is
dispensed with there, mainly for the purpose of economizing space, by enclosing
the pathological or physiological term in parenthesis; it is to be remembered that
the presence of the term by no means shuts out the usefulness of the symptom in
other forms of disease..
The Greek theta , which was represented as parentheses in old edition, remains
unchanged in Augmented & Revised edition.

THE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES
ORIGINAL EDITION AUGMENTED & REVISED EDITION
The bi ggest stumbling block
to use it, i s t he overl y
complex and graphical
layout. It is highly difficult
because of the complex
arrangement of sub- rubrics
like a paragraph, which is
difficult to read at same time
to understand.


The complex graphical lay out is
rectified and solved it as follows
DANCING : Bell, CROC, Plat
- amenorrhoea, (mental
derangement); after : Cocc
- chorea, every seven days; in : Croc
So each sub-rubric starts with separate
new line, made simple and easy to
read.
50

The fonts are very small
There are 4 symbolic gradation
for medicines give eye strains.


The perpendicular dotted lines
given - not clear to find ( the
symptoms correspond with the
old school)
Very difficult to find out the
rubric
The order of arrangement,
follows Hahnemann schema
Nerve chapter, contains rubric
Hysteria , which should be placed
under Mind & Intellect chapter.
Most Special chapters in this
book, are not found in any other
repertory as follows.
Pregnancy, parturition,
lactation.
Heart, pulse and circulation.
Limbs in general. Rest, position,
motion. Nerves. Time.
Temperature and weather.
Attacks, periodicity. Locality
and direction.
Tissues. Touch, passive motion,
injuries. Stages of life and
constitution.
The font size is increased
5 marks of distinction using different
typography bold capital , capital,
bold, italics and roman, done to avoid
confusion.
It is represented with italics
underlined, which is easier to locate
it.

Easy to find out the rubric

The chapters are arranged according
to Kents Repertory format.
No nerve chapter kept under

RESULTS

The objectives were to study the plan, construction, scope and limitation of
Repertory of Herings Guiding Symptoms of Our Materia Medica and to make a
comprehensive study of this repertory in clinical practice.
The first objective, the study of the repertory is explored in detail, along with
the comparative study of Original and Augmented & Revised edition, especially the
practical guideline to locate the rubric, and its cross references, along with the special
featuers. They are like rubrics of the cured symptoms, toxicological symptoms, and
symptoms correlating with the old school are highlighted.
To achieve the second objective subjects were selected from the Out Patient
Department of Fr. Muller Homoeopathic Medical College, as per the inclusion criteria. A
total of 30 cases were selected and all 30 cases received treatment based on the rubrics of
Repertory of Herings Guiding Symptoms of our Materia Medica.
Cases with various clinical presentation were selected, recorded in Standardized
Case Record (S.C.R), followed up for a minimum period of 3 - 6 months and were
considered for analysis. This section contains the description of the data collected from
30 cases using tables and charts. Evaluation has been done based on percentage of
improvement (marked, well, partial & no) for findings the results and to reach the
objectives of the study. It is to help the practioners of Homoeopathy, especially who is
eager to know about Knerrs Repertory and to follow it in their clinical practice.

DISCUSSION

The subjects of this study were selected from the Out Patient Department of Fr.
Muller Homoeopathic Medical College, as per the inclusion criteria. A total of 30 cases,
were selected who received treatment based on the rubrics of Repertory of Herings
Guiding Symptoms of Our Materia Medica By Calvin B. Knerr.
It is to help the members of Homoeopathy, especially who does not know about
Knerr Repertory. A total of 30 cases with various clinical presentation were selected and
recorded in Standardized Case Record (S.C.R) and followed up for a period of minimum
3 to 6 months, were considered for analysis. Selected cases were between 5 70 years.
The cases were diagnosed on the basis of clinical presentation.
This study was conducted to know Role of Knerrs Repertory In Clinical
Practice. Therapeutic plan was evolved for each case and the remedy was selected after
referring Knerrs Concordance Repertory Repertory of Herings Guiding Symptoms of
Our Materia Medica. The repertorial rubric was selected based on either characteristic or
concomitant or clinical & pathological symptoms. Assessments of all patients were done
through each follow ups at regular intervals. Follow up criteria has been adapted for
assessing the changes observed. The scoring was done by percentage according to
improvement of symptoms.
Regarding first objective, Plan & Construction of Knerr Repertory, it contains (48
chapters in original edition) 35 chapters in Augmented & Revised edition, which starts
with Editors note denoting changes made in new Augmented & Revised edition.
118

The chapter mind is having large number of rubrics 551, with few rare mental
rubrics like Waspish, Rancor, Rerophobia, Syphilophobia, etc., which is same in both
editions.
The chapters name of Original edition namely Sensorium, Male Sexual Organs,
Female Sexual Organs, Voice & Larynx, Trachea & Bronchi is changed as Vertigo,
Genitalia Male, Genitalia Female, Larynx & Trachea in Augmented & Revised
edition made easy to refer.
Chapters Rest Position Motion, Nerves, Time, Tissues, Sensation in General,..etc.,
merged and made into chapter Generalities and those symptoms regarding person as a
whole can be searched under this single Chapter.
The implicated symbols for the gradation which originally having four in Original
edition, becomes 5 in Augmented & Revised edition, in simplified form.
The symbol indicates Cross reference in Original edition, changed as (See)
in Augmented & Revised edition in simplified form, makes us clear to understand.
Standard format is used for the abbreviations of medicine to avoid confusion. In
the Extremities Chapter, a group of Complementary remedies are given, which will be
helpful for our practice.
There are few printing errors in Augmented & Revised edition which pointed out
by making tabulation in comparison with Original edition which can be rectified in
further editions for better understanding.
Regarding Second Objective, Out of 30 cases marked improvement showed by 18
cases (60%), well improvement showed by 3 cases (10%), partial improvement showed
119

by 6 cases (20%) and 3 cases (10%) were not improved. Among 30 cases 21 cases (70%)
worked out by single rubric and 9 cases (30%) worked out by two rubrics.
18 cases showed marked improvement, among this7 cases (23.33%) improved by
medicine given under general rubric and 6 cases (20%) improved by medicine given
under characteristic symptoms and 5 cases (16.66%) by intensified common symptoms.
Eg; Case No-3 Patient came with complaints of frequency of passing stool in the
morning since 5 years. Diagnosed as Irritable bowel syndrome. Patient had this frequency
of passing stool around 7- 12 times in the morning around 6.30 -10 am . when this
symptoms was searched in other repertory both frequency of passing stool and time
modality was not tallied. But when searched in Knerr repertory the direct rubric is Stool
frequent, ten to fifteen from 6-10am and the remedy given was Chininum ars. And
Chininum Ars. 200 was given and he showed marked improvement.
Case No 17 Patient came with complaint of oozing of fluid with blood stained
since 1 month. The blood stained fluid was seen in and around umbilical region. Mild
itching was there. Based on this characteristic symptoms rubric searched in Knerr
Repertory and the rubric was Abdomen-abdomen, navel,oozing of bloody fluid, in
infants and Abrotanum and Calcarea phos, was given under that. On consideration of
17 years of his age, constitution and general symptoms, Calcarea Phos. 200 was given
which cured this patient.
Out of 6 partially improved cases, in 2 cases (6.66%) general symptoms were
considered and in 4 cases(13.33%) particular symptoms were considered. And out of 3
well improved cases, 2 cases (6.66%), general symptoms were considered and 1 case
(3.33%) particular symptoms were considered.
120

In this study maximum number of 11 patients (36.66%) were found to be within
the age group of 22-38, and 8 patients (26.66%) in the age group of 39-55, this is
followed by 7 patients in age group of 5 - 21 (23.33%), 4 patients (13.33%) in the age
group of 56-70.Here the peak incidence goes to middle age people.
Out of 30 cases studied, 17 (56.66%) patients were found to be females and 13
(43.33%) patients were males. Out of 30 cases studied, 3 patients(10%) were children
and 27 cases (90%) were adults. In this study of 30 cases maximum patients were
belonging to Hindu religion 16 cases (53.33%), 7 cases were belonging to christianity
(23.33%) and 7 cases (23.33%) were belonging to Islam. In this study out of 30 cases, the
maximum numbers of cases were students 10 cases (33.33%), followed by housewives
as well as business peoples each contains 8 cases ( 26.66%) cases respectively. This is
followed by white collar jobs/ sedentary jobs has 4 cases (13.33%) respectively.
Maximum number of cases 21 (70%) were chronic and 9 (10%) cases were acute.
It was found that the skin complaints in 9 patients (30%), ENT & GIT complaints in 4
patients each (13.33%), Musculoskeletal & Respiratory complaints 3 cases (10%) each
and other systems having complaints like BPH, Ovarian cyst, Caries teeth, IDDM,
common migraine , Essential hypertension & anaemia each one case (3.33%)
respectively.
Out of 30 cases 4 cases (13.33%), were prescribed by Calc phos, 2 cases(6.66%)
were prescribed by Lachesis, 2 cases (6.66%) were prescribed by Pulsatilla, 2
cases(6.66%) were prescribed by Chelidonium, 2 case (6.66%) were prescribed by
Causticum and rest of each cases (3.33%) were prescribed by Bryonia, Sepia, Chininum
Ars., Graphites, Nux Vomica, Staphysagria, Kresosotum, Mercurius Solubilis, Glonine,
121

Secale cornutum, Sulphur, Natrum arsenicum, Kali carbonicum, Calcarea carb, Thuja,
Digitalis, Apis mellifica, Phosphorous respectively.
This study helped to understand the detail account of Construction of the repertory and
its utility in Practice.

Limitations
A) Since the sample size is limited to 30 cases, Generalization of result and
conclusions of study may not be so effective.
B) Some cases couldnt be considered in this study because of discontinuation of
treatment.
C) Some cases demanded the long term observation for the proper study which
practically was not possible due to time limit.
D) In some case necessary information was lacking and the study was based on the
available data.
E) Some follow up were taken by various physicians at various times, hence proper
recording of the symptoms with intensity was difficult
F) Many sub-rubrics and sub-sub-rubrics are having few medicines which is not
sufficient enough to do classical repertorization.
Recommendations:
1. Research with bigger sample.
2. Duration of research should be longer.



122

CONCLUSION

These are the conclusions which were drawn from the study of Importance of
Repertory of Herings Guiding symptoms of our Materia Medica by Calvin B. Knerr in
Clinical Practice. And two objectives were selected for this study.

First objective reveals:
The symptoms are given in their original form without much change from provers
words. It is useful to find the desired symptom together with the indicated
remedy.
Cases having characteristic particulars, concomitants can be repertorized with the
help of this repertory, which is difficult to get it in other repertories.
Book contain full of concomitants, diagnostic rubrics, pathological rubrics,etc.,
Very useful for bedside prescription.
This repertory is useful in keynote prescription but less scope in classical
repertorization.
There are few printing errors in Augmented & Revised edition which are pointed
out by making tabulation in comparison with Original edition, which can be
rectified in further editions, which makes Augmented & Revised edition perfect to
use in our Clinical Practice.


123

Second objective reveals:
There were a total number of 30 cases taken up for the study
Out of 30 cases, marked improvement showed by 18 cases ( 60%), improvement
shown but not fully showed by 3 cases (10%) and partial improvement showed by
6 cases (20%) and 3 cases (10%) were not improved.
The remedy selected through the guidance of Repertory of Herings Guiding
Symptoms of Our Materia Medica by Calvin B. Knerr , is efficacious in curing
the disease and reducing the frequency and intensity of the disorders.
If characteristic symptoms are present in case which can be referred to get
medicine from this repertory
Any type of diagnosed case can be treat with the help of this repertory.
Acute and chronic cases can be referred in this repertory.
This repertory is useful in both adult and child cases.
Cases with gross Pathological changes can be repertorized with the help of this
repertory.
It becomes evident from the above study that this repertory which was claimed
only for reference purpose can be used in our daily clinical practice if we are well
acquainted with the arrangement of rubrics.



124

SUMMARY

A thorough study of Repertory of Herings Guiding Symptoms of our Materia
Medica and 30 cases study held under topic Importance of Repertory of Herings
Guiding Symptoms of Our Materia Medica by Calvin B. Knerr in Clinical Practice.
Common and special features of book studied in comparison with Original and
Augmented & Revised edition. Cases were selected on the basis of inclusion and
exclusion criteria. These cases were followed up regularly and the following conclusion
arrived at the end of the study.
Out of 30 cases, marked improvement showed by 18 cases ( 60%), improvement
shown but not fully showed by 3 cases (10%) and partial improvement showed by 6 cases
(20%) and 3 cases (10%) were not improved. If we get characteristic symptom,
pathological and clinical symptoms properly Knerrs Repertory is useful in clinical
practice.
In this study maximum number 11 patients were found within the age group of
22-38 (36.66%), occupationwise students were more (10numbers-33.33%) affected. cases
belongs to skin complaints (9numbers- 30%) were more. In this study Calcarea Phos was
given for maximum number of 4 cases (13.33%).
The result of this work shows that Knerrs Concordance Repertory is effective
in any type of disease in clinical practice, provided the case presented with characteristic
symptom, concomitant symptoms or deep pathological symptoms or with diagnostic
symptoms.
