Summary

The homeopathic approach to the newborn can be taken via different pathways. Some brief reports on typical acute cases show the way to the remedy by using the keynotes. We follow a premature infant through his first two years of life under homeopathic treatment using repertorisation with Synthesis. Boenninghausen's method is presented as a facilitated way of casetaking. Two cases show the use of this method in everyday clinical practice.
