Shankar Prasad Roy
I am an Electrical Engineer by profession and presently working as Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering in an Engineering College in Bhubaneswar, Orissa, INDIA.
I have been studying Homeopathy for the last 30 years and trying to find ways to make homeopathic prescribing simple and effective. My area of interest is Repertory - a book which contains lists of symptoms and the related remedies, arranged systematically. While studying various repertories, I found that Boger-Boenninghausen’s Repertory was an important repertory but it was not used widely due to its difficult arrangement of symptoms.
I prepared an index to this repertory which was published by B. Jain Publishers, New Delhi, in 1990. This index proved helpful to homeopaths in locating a rubric in the repertory. Later, this index was built into the repertory making the book easier to refer.
Further, to mechanize the repertorization process, I have designed and published SPIRO, the details of which are given in ‘Invention
’ page. I have developed a Repertorization Chart which can be used to find a homeopathic remedy for an acute case, especially for viral fever. This is provided in Fig.26 in ‘Articles
’ page.I have provided detailed instructions in Do It Yourself page
, so that one can make his own homeopathic punched cards.
Honorary D. Sc.
degree was conferred on me by OICM, Sri Lanka
during 1994 for my research contributions to Homeopathy.
