The Soul of Remedies by Dr. Rajan Sankaran

             Dr. Rajan Sankaran is an internationally renowned thinker, teacher and writer of the homeopathic system of medicine. He is well known to be an original thinker and is famous for his revolutionary concepts in Homoeopathy. His understanding of disease as a delusion, discovery of newer miasms, classification of diseased states into kingdoms and the seven levels of experience, brought in much more clarity into understanding diseased states.

He is particularly well known for developing a highly structured view of the Materia Medica. He has authored numerous books all of which are outstanding and sensational. In his book “The Soul of Remedies” he tries to bring out the innermost essence or the basic delusion of a remedy while connecting the situation, source, miasm and kingdom. The rubrics and physical symptoms cited are ones which he has observed repeatedly and often used to confirm the remedy prescribed. These ideas have helped many doctors in their clinical practice and are thankful to him to have them shared with the others.


Dr. Sankaran gives importance to all the physical and pathological symptoms, the modalities of the remedy and most essentially the mental symptoms. ‘The soul of remedies’ is a compilation of many remedies where the innermost feelings and mental states have been highlighted. Of course, these remedy pictures can elicited only by an astute homeopath with his art of case-taking that delves deeply into the patient’s delusions, dreams, hobbies etc.

His idea of understanding a remedy is to grasp the connection that ties together its myriad symptoms: the basic delusion, its source (kingdom), the miasm to which it belongs, its symptoms all must be understood as aspects of a single whole if we are to even begin to truly understand a remedy. He attempts to trace out these connections that distinguish this work from other Materia Medicas.
