Clarify the anamnesis by selecting a group of three or four essentials in one case and discarding all other remedies which do not turn up here. – Kent
If the first rubric alone is taken for elimination with remedies in the first (bold) grade there is danger of throwing out many usable and curative remedies.
Instead take all the remedies in the first two grades if they are common to the first two rubrics on the list. An exception would be to include the polychrests if they appear in any grade or in just one rubric.
Look at the smaller rubric and enter it into a table only if it is found in the other rubric with the exception above.
Use only these remedies to tally the rank for the other rubrics.
With three small but indispensable rubrics (sometimes two) you can take all of the rubrics and combine them especially if they belong to different classes of symptoms.
Combine them by marking down in your table the remedies that are common to any two of the rubrics. Use those for elimination of any others.
In managing a long-term case where you have frequent contact with the patient, it is good to have a tally sheet just with the generals and mentals of that person. This will point to a set of remedies that will aid in eliminating many useless remedies quickly.
This is most helpful when your patient hits an acute phase where the rubrics are simple and can be compared to your constitutional remedy list.
Update this list as often as you need because people can change over the course of several months if chronic cure is taking place.
