The reasons that "forced" me to create Suggesta are many...
In these 35 years of clinical experience, I have collected extensive verbatim material from the patients I have had the pleasure of meeting. I spent an hour of my time almost every day to review the best cases, those where the same remedy works in chronic as well as acute conditions and with a long follow-up.
I extracted the common, recurrent symptoms confirmed by the clinic in multiple cases. I have tried to elaborate this material also for coherent concepts, for themes. The result is a corpus which up to now includes about 30,000 additions.
Already more than 12 years ago, after years of working side by side with David Warkentin, I began to give in to his insistence and the crazy idea of rethinking the repertory. To imagine it as I wanted it. Even though I felt like a dwarf in front of a mountain. I think that like many colleagues who are not so young anymore, I was lucky enough to live my homeopathic experience in a moment of great revolution.
The repertory on which I learned to study has passed - perhaps too quickly - from Kent, to Kunzli, to Barthel, to Synthesis, to Complete, just to name the best known. Since then, our community has exponentially continued the effort to study more and more remedies and to add more and more symptoms to the repertoires.
Understandably, but ... We have enlarged Kent's repertory by appending symptoms, extracted as faithfully as possible from our literature. In my opinion, more than 30 years later, today we have a very different problem: the same as big data. A problem of all science and not only of Homeopathic Medicine. A plethora of "data" that is not necessarily "information": essential, clinically confirmed and diriment.
And then how can we forget the nineteenth-century lexicon of a text that is proposed as fundamental for the training of every good homeopath doctor: how can we, after more than a hundred years of repertory, continue to call the sense of guilt "anxiety of conscience"? The hypertrophy of the lymph nodes "scrofula" , without distinguishing a mononucleosis from a lymphoma? How can we persist in the use of manifestly judgmental symptoms: lust, unobservant, want of moral sense, cretinism or idiocy for remedies clearly known for extreme relationship difficulties, before or instead of cognition?
What about the various "hysteria" that mean everything and the opposite of everything, when that disease has even disappeared from the medical lexicon and, when it was present, it indicated something very different from repertory usage. These problems, and many others that I do not mention so as not to bore, have always represented a thorn in my flesh, a pair of shoes that over the years became increasingly tight.
Massimo Mangialavori, 2021
- Suggesta offers Latin superchapters, a key element in Massimo’s vision to create a repertory with a new, more practical structure of the information.
- An example is “THORAX” which contains the chapters; Chest, Chest pain, Cough, Lungs bronchia pleura, Respiration and Heart.
- To see the chapter layout, please check the first picture in the gallery below.
- Any initial hesitation to find symptoms the way you want can easily be overcome by using the word search function.
- RadarOpus will very quickly find all symptoms related to the words you enter in the search query.
