Let us introduce you to MacRepertory, our repertorization tool. MacRepertory makes it easy to quickly select and analyze rubrics, get ideas for remedies, check the materia medica, do a bit of research and feel confident about your prescriptions.
MacRepertory offers full functionality tools, such as sophisticated search tools and powerful analysis options as well as advanced customization and analysis features. Explore our five editions to find the combination of resources and price that suits your needs.
MacRepertory is the perfect software for homeopaths who want a powerful, complete solution. This helpful program provides room to grow as your learning expands – and serves as a teaching tool through its many books and resources.
MacRepertory allows you to create and save patient charts (complete with remedy plan) and save the reasons why you selected a remedy; collect and save other remedies to consider; create graphs of your analysis, and much more.
Having trouble remembering where a rubric is in a repertory? Conduct a word search and find it with the click of your mouse. Need to find all of the occurrences of a remedy in a repertory? Conduct a remedy search and they’re all located in seconds. You can even import a rubric from ReferenceWorks to improve your case analysis.
MacRepertory couldn’t be easier to use. You have a repertory on the screen that looks just like the book on your desk. With the option of up to 35 repertories, it’s easy to find the exact symptom you want – you’ll never again get lost in old terminology.
MacRepertory comes with a built-in collection of tried-and-true mathematical strategies that combine with clear graphs to illuminate the most likely remedies for the case. If you work slightly differently than we do, MacRepertory allows you to fine tune the calculations and play with different strategies until you get exactly what works for you; no math required.
Crossing rubrics to find the remedies that cover all of the rubrics is one of the simplest, yet most powerful, case analysis techniques. Just drop rubrics into our “Elimination Tool” to see only the remedies that run through the whole case.
MacRepertory turns the repertories into valuable tools for research. With a few clicks you can find all of the fears of Stramonium or the difference between Kali Phosphoricum and Phosphorus or the similarities between Calcarea Carbonica and Asterias Rubens. You can make profiles of words throughout the repertory; i.e. every rubric related to ‘horse’ and the main remedies that focus on it or the unique delusions of all the fungi.
MacRepertory’s family tools enabled Rajan Sankaran to discover the common characteristics of the families he’s described. A few clicks and you can see the rubrics common to most of the remedies in the family.
Once you’ve narrowed your selection down to a few remedies, you want to verify them in the materia medica. MacRepertory places scores of the greatest materia medica right at your fingertips. From Boericke, Boger and Phatak to Morrison, Scholten and Vermeulen – if you need it, it’s there.
With one click you collect rubrics for your analysis. You can make up to 10 collections of rubrics, each representing the story from a different point of view. We’ve also included a version of mind mapping that groups rubrics into themes. By creating thematic objects you get a clear graphic representation of the case dynamics. This revolutionary, visual approach focuses your thinking and helps you to prescribe much more accurately.
MacRepertory excels at its graphs; there are many beautiful graphs to choose from and they make your job easier by instantly, clearly identifying the most likely remedies and highlighting small remedies and nosodes as fast as polychrests.
Hahnemann was one of the first to recognize that remedies could be separated into groups to help focus prescribing. MacRepertory extends this concept to 1,800 groups of remedies: from miasms to natural kingdoms and from Vega’s Boxes to Massimo’s Families. With a click you can focus your analysis on only the syphilitic remedies, or snakes, or natrums. MacRepertory includes over 100 specific family graphs to help you prescribe at your best.
When it is time to decide on a remedy the Concept Graph makes differentiating between remedies, groups and families simple. At a glance you can compare the main expressions (organ, sensation, modalities etc.) of remedies, making it clear which remedies fit the case best.
MacRepertory was designed to grow along with you. Create strategies that work best for your cases, design your own custom graphs and make new families of remedies to focus your prescribing. Choose your own background colors, fonts and repertory icons. Add additions into any repertory and your notes into the materia medica. The program will grow to fit you like a glove.
Click on a remedy in a rubric to jump to the original materia medica reference in ReferenceWorks. Use ReferenceWorks to collect all of the remedies from over 800 materia medica and paste the results into MacRepertory to improve your case analysis. Share additions with others; even share your background collections. MacRepertory Professional combines a solid, traditional approach with dozens of inspirational new features. You’ll immediately find you are prescribing more accurately.
ReferenceWorks is a ground-breaking program that combines the scale of a huge materia medica library with the ease and analysis power of a repertorial program.
Each of the five Editions we offer contain a different combination of resources and prices, explore them all and choose the one that best suits your needs.
ReferenceWorks Professional is ideal for those who want a combination of both basic information tool and the advanced searching and analysis tools.
The easy-to-use interface and searching capabilities allow you to find information in the language and format that makes sense to you. You can quickly expand or narrow searches within remedies, books and sections and use a variety of graphs to illustrate the results of your search. Create rubrics of your ReferenceWorks searches and export to MacRepertory to include in case analysis.
Using the 100's family and group graphs can illuminate your case analysis in many different angles. Use the modern greatest minds of homeopathic practice to solve your most difficult cases, as if they are sitting next to you and whispering in your ear. Massimo Mangialavori, Rajan Sankaran, Jan Scholten, Roger Morrison, Michal Yakir and many others are there to support your practice, every minute.
ReferenceWorks uses the materia medica directly to find a patient’s remedy, eliminating the repertory middleman. Simply type in the symptoms, ReferenceWorks then collects every reference and creates a graph of the result. The remedies are scored based on the importance each author gave them, how many authors suggested the remedy for the symptom and how rare the remedy is. You can fine-tune the results by selecting the books you value most. Describe several symptoms at a time and create a bar graph of the results.
Of course, a simple analysis can give too much importance to the common remedies and common symptoms, so we’ve included sophisticated analysis strategies that compensate for these inequities. You can choose to emphasize the keynotes, strange, rare and peculiar symptoms, small remedies or the remedies that have the greatest number of symptoms in the case. Since ReferenceWorks graphs are based on thousands of references, they display the importance of each remedy for the symptom more precisely than the three grades in the repertory can.
From this great variety of viewpoints, utilizing the genius of hundreds of authors, you’ll find that your results are more accurate than if you were using a repertory program alone.
ReferenceWorks starts with the world’s richest homeopathic library. It’s a collection of wonderful gems by the greatest homeopaths – from old, rare books and journal articles to cured cases and the newest provings – everything you need is right here.
We have also included 2,000 remedy substance descriptions with pictures, movies, natural history and proven information. And you aren’t limited to what we’ve collected; you can add your own collections of class notes and cured cases. They are displayed and searched along with the masters.
You can browse through the books faster than you can with the ones on your bookshelf. Click in and out of the list of books or leap directly from book to book following a single remedy.
It isn’t always easy knowing the best words to use to find a symptom, that’s where the experts come in handy. In cooperation with Princeton University we’ve created a lexical reference system that gives you synonyms, related words, definitions (current and from 1900) – even words that sound similar and translations into half a dozen languages.
ReferenceWorks makes it easy to focus on just the remedies that make sense. Search only in provings or books of keynotes, limit a graph to animals or bacteria, or only show books that discuss a specific remedy. Choose from dozens of pre-built in limits, or create your own and save them for everyday use.
Putting remedies into functional groups is not new. Hahnemann found it useful to separate the 84 remedies he knew into three miasms. Faced today with 3,400 remedies the use of a category system is necessary. Depending on their degree of similarity, families can help rule out remedies that are only superficially good choices or point you towards an obscure cousin.
The programs are designed so that you can display individual remedies anywhere and you can also display the family groups. You can focus most windows on a particular family. For example you can limit the materia medica books in ReferenceWorks to only display the insect remedies or limit a search to syphilitic remedies that have a fear of death.
ReferenceWorks searches the Internet for natural history, herbalism, side-effects, definitions and pictures. This isn’t just some random search, we focus on over 2,000 of the best peer reviewed sites available.
Type in a word or phrase and instantly find the exact symptom you need no matter where it may be hiding in over 850 volumes of materia medica and repertories.
Now we come to what has made ReferenceWorks a revolution for homeopathy. As you search for symptoms you create rubrics that can then be analyzed just as though they came from a repertory. Actually, far better than from the repertory since these rubrics are a distillation of the whole library and are typically three to ten times more complete. For example, you’ll find 62 remedies in ReferenceWorks for ‘fear of dogs’ while Kent’s Repertory only knows of six. This means you will be ten times more likely to find the right remedy.
Once you’ve collected your rubrics, a single click creates bar, scatter, waffle, city, family and hundreds of other graphs of the best remedies for your case. The remedies are scored based on the importance each author gave them, how many authors suggested the remedy for the symptom and the rareness of the remedy. You can even fine-tune the results by selectively emphasizing the books you value the most. MacRepertory and ReferenceWorks share all of the same graphic abilities.
With the help of Jan Scholten, Rajan Sankaran, Massimo Mangialavori, Andreas Bjørndal, Vega Rozenberg, Roger Morrison and others, we’ve organized all of the remedies into 1,800 color-coded botanical, chemical, biological and functional families and integrated them deeply into MacRepertory and ReferenceWorks.
Every remedy in our materia medica has been placed in their correct natural category. We’ve gone beyond the traditional kingdoms, adding groups such as Bjørndal and Rajan’s Miasms, Five Elements, Plant Chemicals, Vega’s Boxes, Murphy’s Planets, Boyd’s Types, Morrison’s Organics, Massimo’s Groups etc. If you feel that isn’t enough, you can easily create your own.
We have created 100 beautiful graphs to illuminate the families. There are a wide range of miasm, mineral, bacteria, fungi, plant and animal graphs.
The graphs have three uses: first, to map out the kingdoms parts; second to show how prominent the family is in the current case; and third by clicking on the family to help you to focus the remedy analysis on just its members.
As an example, when you click on the snakes in the Animal Graph, a remedy graph appears with only the snake remedies analyzed for this case. Dragging a second family to the graph crosses the groups: sunflowers that are syphilitic or animals that are sycotic, and so on.
