BOENNINGHAUSEN, Clemens von – Polar Symptom Analysis Add-On


This item requires access to The Boenninghausen Repertory, otherwise, it will not work. The Boenninghausen Repertory is already included in the Advanced Practitioner Package. All others interested in Polar Symptom Analysis should purchase The Boenninghausen Repertory with Polar Symptom Analysis Bundle, which includes both items.

Polar Symptom Analysis:
* In this analysis, polar symptoms (opposite to the patient’s symptoms) are considered to increase the probability of certain remedies
* Only works when symptoms are taken from the original Therapeutic Pocket Book as this book contains the necessary polar symptoms (it is not compatible with TBR2 edited by George Dimitriadis)
* When the user selects the patient’s symptoms (preferably in clipboard 1), RadarOpus automatically takes the corresponding opposite polar symptoms. The latter symptoms are displayed in a virtual clipboard, which is only visible when a polar symptom analysis is requested (in analysis window: click on the black-white circle icon).
* The user selects symptoms that are either polar (= have an opposite symptom, like agg. and amel.) or non-polar (= no opposite, like burning). The Bönninghausen polar symptom analysis calculates a score (polarity difference), considering the positive polar symptoms (= the patient’s symptoms) minus the opposite polar symptoms (= opposite to what the patient has). The higher the polarity difference (in bold), the more likely the remedy
* The virtual clipboard is automatically named “Opposite polar symptoms”. Clipboard 1 is named “Patient’s symptoms” except when the user has named the clipboard differently
* An option to include or not the non-polar symptoms in the positive polar symptoms score. By default non-polar symptoms are not included

The following lines are present in the analysis window:
* The sum of symptoms (the remedies are sorted secondary on the sum of degrees)
* The patient’s symptoms (this is the sum of degrees)
* The opposite polar symptoms (this is the sum of degrees)
* The polar difference

The polar difference is calculated as follows: the “sum of degrees of the opposite polar symptoms” is subtracted from the “sum of degrees of the patient symptoms”. The higher the polar difference, the better this is for the remedy. The lower the value (or even a negative value) means there are contraindications for that remedy.
