This lecture is "A Blueprint for Success in Acute Prescriptions". Dr. Vijay Vaishnav has always asked the students and practitioners of homeopathy to master acute prescriptions, since ’acutes’ present the greatest challenge to a homeopath.

Using the respiratory system and bronchial asthma as an example, he takes us on a journey of integration of our learning about the disease from the text books of internal medicine and its correlation with the homeopathic Matria Medica, Philosophy and Repertory. He tells us what should be going on in our minds while handling an acute case. What symptoms should be discarded and which should be given more importance.

He has used case examples (some of which were apparently ’surgical’, yet treated with homeopathy) to demonstrate the different approaches to acute prescribing. All these cases have specifically been culled from the initial years of his practice, when he had just graduated from college. This is to emphasis the fact that practicing homeopathy is not difficult and even a beginner can get good results.
