Converting the patient's language and your own observations into the repertorial language is never easy. It takes years of practice to master the art of case taking and repertorisation. The most difficult part is to master the mind rubrics. The mind can be a minefield.
Many books have been written to make understanding of mind rubrics easier but none has been able to do justice to the task at hand. Until now! I find Dr. Gaurang's book a delight to read because it not only gives you the meaning of a rubric, it gives the word origin, how and where the symptom appears in our provings and clinical case examples to ensure that you get it right.
This book is going to be very useful to all homeopathy students and practitioners. I highly recommend it!

Dr. Gaurang has prepared this book with profound depth and compassion. The wisdom of all his gurus Dr. R. Sankaran, Dr. Vijay Vaishnav, and mine, has been well preserved and delivered by him. He is a true Hybrid of his Gurus and this is reflected in how he writes the book, which will make it a Milestone in the History of Homoeopathy.

I am glad to receive long awaited book 'Understanding Mental Rubrics' from Dr. Gaurang Gaikwad. This book is a tribute to his one of the closest and beloved friends Dr. Rameez, who had died unexpectedly before starting his promising career. I have seen Gaurang going into transition and getting transformed from a student to international teacher.This book seems a sharing of his learning process and is interactive in its presentation, hence it will be interesting for students of repertory who wish to perceive the subject at experiential level. I wish him success in his endeavor.

A Must Have for every Homeopath

I have gone through few pages of Dr Gaurang’s book.
The idea of integrating the origin of words used in rubrics and the area where the Master’s have explained them in their material Medica is very unique. It helps us to link how the Master’s thought of putting the exact word to the prover’s experiences.
Further the brief summary of the drugs used in the rubric with clinical case examples are very useful.
It will be a great help to the practitioners trying to practice by understanding the Mental state of the patient.

Dr. Gaurang Gaikwad, the little master of this era in Homoeopathy is a focused, dedicated and a dynamic practitioner of this healing art. He has sharpened his skills by the world most renowned Dr. Vijay Vaishnav, Dr. Sunirmal Sarkar and Dr. Rajan Sankaran, and transformed into one of the most inspiring speakers and practitioners of today.
Sarcodes and Nosodes are now becoming a frequent need of the today's world due to growing number of lifestyle diseases and many other resistant conditions. But, there seemed to be this big lacuna regarding the literature related to Sarcodes and Nosodes, and Dr. Gaurang has highlighted many aspects of these group of remedies, like the Materia Medica, the Sphere of Action, the Repertorial Approach to look at these remedies and get a complete understanding of every drug. He has also illustrated these remedies with not only his cases but also of all great teachers, which gives this an edge of practical utility of the book.
This book will surely guide the students and the practitioners in not just prescription but also in understanding the depth of all these remedies as explored by Dr. Gaurang Gaikwad.

Vijay Vaishnav and myself, which is reflected in his writings.
The wisdom of all his gurus Dr. R. Sankaran, Dr. Vijay Vaishnav, and mine, has been well preserved and delivered by him.
- Dr. Sunirmal Sarkar
Many homoeopaths have been asking me the question, “Which book should we read for Nosodes and Sarcodes?”
Now, I can finally recommend this extremely informative book which is by far the best book written exhaustively on this subject. Thanks to this great contribution to Homoeopathy by Dr. Gaurang Gaikwad, a long existing void has been filled.
-Dr. Ashok Borkar
The importance and the value of this book is immense, considering that the author presents us everything about all the Nosodes and Sarcodes in one single book, including the source, toxicological symptoms, keynotes, numerous Repertory Rubrics, clinical tips and indications, case example from Homoeopathic journals and from his own experience, in his way we have not to waste time in searching in different literature.
What could we ask for more?
The only thing that we can do is to be grateful and to thank this young, dynamic Homoeopath for his great work and use the information from his book to the benefit of our patients.
I highly recommend this book, it is a must-have for all homoeopaths!

Review by Dr. Francois Bernaerts:
I had the chance to discover Gaurang's astonishing and very complete work on the use of different repertories and at the same time to open myself to them... at last. This is a new and precious work which is now available to everyone and particularly to young homeopaths. What a gift to start one's professional life! In addition to introducing us to the soul of each repertory, extracting its richness, exploiting its often forgotten treasures, via many illustrative cases, Gaurang also passes on his passion, his learning path. He is present in the book, and we can feel his faith and his convictions. It makes us want to follow in his footsteps, to plunge long and studiously into the study of these repertories. Getting familiar with them is the real secret. Indeed, if one wants to obtain the fruits of these books, one should not delude oneself, it is by knowing them, by mastering them that one will be able to use them usefully. These repertories must become our friends. Friends we know them, we know their strengths, their qualities, their weaknesses, their limits, but they are there when we need them!
Thanks to Gaurang who gives himself a lot to help us move forward on this so exciting path of the Art of Healing with the homeopathy.
