This aggravation by open air could also be caused by selection of acute cases. Multivariate analysis Table 3 shows what symptoms discriminate between various medicines, but it is difficult to read and impossible to handle during consultations. What are the most important symptoms?

Boger Boeninghausens Characteristic and Repertory

There are statistical methods to calculate what symptoms differentiate best between groups, between respective medicines or between medicines and a control group. This table can partly be read as a Materia Medica for each medicine, partly as a comparative Materia Medica.

Higher values indicate more importance regarding the medicine. The control group has the lowest values, as expected because they are consecutive new cases without known results. Table 6: Fisher Linear Discriminant Analysis. A positive value means that that patient is ameliorated by or has a desire for the variable, a negative means the opposite.

With these figures we can make comparisons between medicines and between each medicine and the control group. The comparison with the control group resembles the existing Materia Medica. First the comparison with the control group.

DA scores and LR are not fully comparable, but we can divide these scores, rather arbitrarily, in grade 1 plain type if the difference with the control group is between 1. By subtracting the values for the same symptom we can differentiate between medicines.

Aversion to motion is an indication for Bryonia, but it does not differentiate Bryonia from Cocculus, because the value of this symptom is even higher for Cocculus. The strength of DA is calculating the combinations that maximise the differences between medicines. Table 7 shows that the ordering and differentiation of the medicines in relation to the symptoms of Table 5 improves compared to the LR values.

DA should be used in combination with other methods. Table 7: ordering of medicines by weight after DA. Of the cross-validated grouped cases In reality only one of the two poles can be an indication for the respective medicine.

Daily practice confronts us with a high prevalence of polar symptoms that become useless for standard repertorisation. Polarity Analysis PA can correct for the mistake that Repertory-entries are based on absolute occurrence instead of relative occurrence, but the accuracy of the data should be improved by systematic validation to increase the reproducibility of our method. Despite this, the average result of our questionnaire with 30 polar symptoms was five symptoms per patient.

These methods supplement each other: LRs can indicate the importance of individual symptoms for specific medicines, but Multvariete Analysis adds the dimension of extra information by combining symptoms and maximising the distance between medicines by optimal weighing of symptoms. Stepwise Fisher Linear Discriminant Analysis SFLDA shows that a limited number of common symptoms from a questionnaire can give a fair differential diagnosis to start the consultation with.

SFLDA accentuated the differences between medicines. Former LR assessment showed that LRs of keynote symptoms seldom exceed 6.

This indicates that the questionnaire we investigated could improve our results in cases with few good symptoms, because our questionnaire of 30 symptoms rendered an average of nearly five symptoms per patient.

Hm... Are You a Human?

Five symptoms from the questionnaire nearly equal two keynote-symptoms. As stated before, LRs could be exaggerated by confirmation bias. Fisher Discriminant Analysis is just one of the many techniques in multivariate analysis that could be applied in homeopathy.

It is possible to map all relationships between medicines and symptoms and show the respective distances between medicines. The value of Multivariate Analysis for homeopathy should be further explored.


Our research suffers from confirmation bias because the medicines were chosen on repertorisations with PA. But our findings suggest that also repertories applying PA can be improved. By selecting best cases and comparing these cases with a control group we can validate and improve our existing data.

Repeating the same procedure with improved data we get a step by step improving quality circle. By systematic collection of data by questionnaires by a large number of practitioners homeopathy can become a data driven method with steadily improving repertories.

Our research should be followed by prospective research with such a questionnaire in a variety of practices also not applying repertories with PA. The most promising research questions for MVA seem: 1 discriminating between the medicines we most frequently use; 2 discriminating between medicines we use for indications where efficacy should be further investigated, like Upper Respiratory Tract Infection. To standardise and to modernise the questionnaire Likert scales could be applied.

The appendix shows a questionnaire based on our results investigating frequently occurring polar symptoms. Similar questionnaires can be developed for other polar symptoms like food symptoms.

We recommend further research with questionnaires regarding frequently occurring symptoms. So if you feel better, mark this as follows: Much Neutral Much better worse [ ] [X] [ ] [ ] [ ] Most important are changes caused by your illness.
