How He Applied “Analogy” On Concomitant Symptoms?
And What Made Him To Declare That His Repertory Is Based On Concomitant.

Being convinced of the importance of Concomitant symptoms he started collecting them wherever present in the Materia Medica Pura and wherever his and others’ experience could provide. Eventually the numbers increased so incredibly that it was impossible to write individually all the Concomitant symptoms in relation to that particular area.

Boenninghausen thought if he would go on writing the concomitant symptoms individually in relation to the particular affection then the repertory would become very voluminous. Hence instead of writing them individually, he deduces a general rule with the help of Doctrine of Analogy and presented a separate general rubric on Concomitant.

In this way Boenninghausen has kept several general rubrics on concomitant whenever relevant i.e.

Mind: Drugs which have Concomitant of mental symptoms.

Nose: accompanying symptoms of nasal discharge.

Stool: Trouble before during and after stool.

Micturition: Trouble before, at the beginning, during, at the close of and after micturition.

Menstruation: Trouble before, at the beginning, during and after menstruation.

Leucorrhoea: Accompanying trouble of leucorrhoea,

Respiration: Accompanying trouble.

Cough: Trouble associated with cough.

Yawning: Associated trouble.

Sleep: Associated symptoms.

Fever: Heat stage and associated symptoms

Sweat: With associated symptoms.

Compound Fever: During, before and after.

These all representation made Boenninghausen to declare that his repertory is based on doctrine of Concomitant. (9)
