Adonis in a nutshell



The repertory views have been thoroughly reviewed and completed with the new remedies and authors.

There are some new repertory views: "Only remedies", "Only families", "Only all provings", "Only clinical verification" and "Reliable sources (T. Galic)".

adonis_chillIn all chapters, many pathological rubrics have been added, suggesting inspiration for remedies in case of a given pathology.

 adonis_mindNew rubrics in contemporary language have been added.

They suggest remedies based on recent provings and clinical experience where these words were used. The goal is to bring the language of the repertory closer to the language of today’s patients, if appropriate rubrics did not yet exist. 

family1To many rubrics, families have been added (introducing 202 families, 0,7 % of Adonis).

When looking at such a rubric, the homeopath is reminded of the remedies as well as of the families that may apply. Different ways to visualize the rubric allow flexibility while working. All families end with an asterisk (e.g. solanac*), so they can be easily recognized.

animal Updated Veterinary version in Synthesis Adonis.

The veterinary information has been updated by Marc Bär (Switzerland) and his team and contains mostly new additions and new symptoms. Veterinary concepts and tags facilitate access to what is highly relevant information for veterinarians.

adonis_personalAt the end of Synthesis Adonis, we provide an empty “Personal chapter”, where remedies and symptoms can be added on the fly.

Praise for Synthesis Adonis


farokhI have been working with Synthesis repertory for the past two decades, and I have been actively associated as a core team member under the guardianship of Dr. Frederik Schroyens. In the last two decades, I started examining my clinical case record forms and building up interesting clinical rubrics and medical syndromes. I have added more than 30-40 Jungian rubrics and made the chapter of mind quite rich. After running a department of palliative oncology in Mumbai for the last many years, I was able to gather some useful rubrics in the section on cancer. Again, from the case records of cured patients, I upgraded the chapter on Lab Investigations. All this is now incorporated in the wonderful version, now known as Adonis. I am delighted that Dr. Frederik Schroyens incorporated all my additions in the book. 

Dr. Farokh J. Master, India, March 25, 2022 

Watch Farokh's Webinar to discover the enormous work he has put into converting his clinical experience into repertorial cues for Adonis!

geoff-johnson(1)I am very excited about Adonis, which has become my repertory.  Most of Massimo's additions and so many new remedies.  It enabled me to prescribe Passer domesticus for the first time. At last, even the Lanthanides! Mineral, plant and animal family analysis made easy. This has been a huge task superbly accomplished. Thank you. 

Geoff Johnson, UK, June 21, 2022 

I have started using Adonis, mostly for research purposes but also for a few selected patients, and I must say I am quite impressed and satisfied with it! 

Dr Joe Rozencwajg, New Zealand, June 5, 2022 

Working with [Adonis] for a week on it now. A great enhancement/upgrade! Your hard work is deeply appreciated! 

Wiet Van Helmond, The Netherlands, June 5, 2022 

What a feast is Adonis! 

Véronique Piales, France, May 31, 2022 

Adonis is really a very highly appreciable work beating all the previous versions and top of any homeopathic software in the world. 

Shree Mohine Gupta, India, June 11, 2022 

Synthesis Adonis in my arsenal .....feeling nice .... more options in terms of remedies and kingdom as well!
