Highly reliable

The focus in Synthesis is to strike a balance between the classical and modern for the utmost quality and reproducibility in Homeopathy.

Edited by Dr Frederik Schroyens, a renowned Homeopath and Medical Doctor who worked closely with George Vithoulkas for many years. He is an experienced and busy Homeopathic Doctor alongside his role in creating and editing Synthesis.

I believe we should take a resolute stand and treat each other's "fever for additions". Moreover, we should balance it with "fastidiousness about correct additions" ... It is misleading to call any Repertory complete. More work will always be needed to further improve the quality and increase the content of Synthesis. It is certain that this job will never be completely finished. As a consequence, all current collaborators and, in fact, anyone is invited to go on with this collaboration. The most productive contributions are made when everyone does what interests him or her: the remedy he needs, the author she likes, etc.

Highly  reliable


Every source is just one mouse click away

Synthesis is the only repertory allowing you to include explicit source information when making additions!

Not only precise bibliographical references, but also the actual text on which your Synthesis addition has been based. This is a most important tool to guarantee the quality of the additions by creating transparency and linking Synthesis and any Materia Medica in two directions. These additions can be shared between users, so that the Homeopathic community can collaborate on updating the repertory.

Synthesis represents close collaboration throughout the profession

Experienced Homeopaths have contributed to the project by including their own valued clinical findings. The Synthesis team then draws together these reliable additions and combines them with high quality Provings that have been overseen by experienced Homeopaths. Within Synthesis, there is also the facility to limit the repertory to a “View”; which filters out additions of modern remedies for those who wish to stay rooted in classical provings.

Synthesis is based on Kent's Repertory and adds a vast amount of corrections and additions to it. We believe that it adds much more to homeopathy as a whole so that we can structure our homeopathic knowledge for the best, so it may be easily readable, transparent, and consistent.

We sincerely hope this instrument may help you in raising your homeopathic efficiency to a new level. After the knowledge of the Materia Medica, the use of the Repertory is the next best friend to allow the marvel of homeopathic cure to happen. We haven't spared any effort so that this Repertory may help homeopathy "grow brighter".

Jump to cross-references and synonyms

Race around the repertory with our extensive network of cross references!

Navigating Synthesis becomes easier even for newcomers, highlighting new rubrics for you to discover. Synthesis also includes many associated concept files which are designed to help you find rubrics. This is a great help for novices to the repertory who are yet to master the Victorian language employed! These concept files provide an alternative route into finding rubrics. You can search for a medical term or modern expression and find a link to the rubrics that cover the symptoms. Synthesis contains clinical and modern terms as these can be very helpful to modern Homeopaths.

Add families to the repertory

Modern developments in Homeopathy have focused on groups or families of remedies and their shared characteristics

This has opened up many smaller remedies that may have been missed in the past. Lachesis has been prescribed countless times where perhaps other snake remedies may have been better suited, despite being under-represented in the repertory. Now you can add Families to rubrics based on your understanding of Kingdoms and families. The freedom to add any family to Synthesis makes it a truly unique repertory.

The original repertory to work with the Vithoulkas Expert System

The V.E.S intelligently combines different analysis strategies

This pioneering module gives priority to the smaller, characteristic rubrics as well as bringing out remedies based on the grading of symptoms - I.E. their keynote symptoms. Small rubrics and lesser known remedies are therefore brought forwards in your analysis to give a different perspective on the case. This often provides more satisfactory results than a flat repertorisation (using a simple counting method) because the V.E.S matches your grading of the patient’s symptoms with the grading in the repertory. The resulting analysis will therefore bring forward remedies with matching keynotes, characteristic symptoms and overall sphere of action.
