Make the most of Saine's Materia Medica Pura Group Summaries in RadarOpus

  • With the MMPP document open, you can enter keywords to express the Genius of your case into the RadarOpus search window.

    • In the example below, *heat* instructs the search engine to look for heat, but it will also find the word overheated, which is used extensively in the text.
    • Cough* will find cough, coughs, coughing etc.
    • The graph shows which remedies cover both of these symptoms as part of their Genius.

    • This approach has great application in any case where a clear and coherent totality of symptoms has been gathered expressing the central disturbance and intense symptoms in the patient.

    • Next, you can double click on any remedy (or the bar graph) to re-do the search - taking you directly to the source text for that remedy so you can cross-check the materia medica against your case.


  • In the example below, you see the materia medica of Thlaspi bursa pastoris (Shepherd's purse) - with the chosen keywords highlighted

For a useful reminder of what the term Genius means in relation to our Materia Medica, click here for a tutorial on Boger's Synoptic Key.

The Genius according to Boger is

The strain which runs through every pathogenetic symptom complex...
To give this its proper place in the prescription should be the ideal of every prescriber.
They should reflect a speaking image of the correctly indicated remedy.

Cyrus Boger

  • In summary

    • The gestalt pattern is the established remedy picture of a certain remedy.
    • The clinically confirmed essence or nucleus of the overall gestalt picture which has been established for many remedies over decades is termed the Genius of the remedy.
