This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Is the case was taken by Sankaran, using the sensation method? It looks like it is...

I guess this is not the whole case but just a part of the case? because I don't see any sensation in the case... unless this is a mineral case or animal case, then they don't have a sensation like plants. For example, mineral row 3, the issue is a relationship, row 4 is a job, security, family, row 5 creativity, and row 6, the issue is responsibility and so on. And the animals have a different experience, depending on which kind of animals.

Having said that, if creativity is a real issue in this case, then the remedy could be from mineral, row 5 may be from the left-hand side of the column....

I don't see the case from the link.

still couldn't find the case from the link, but I'm just going to guess the remedy.

The mother talked about her mind state during pregnancy as 'Excited' 'Very creative at that time'. Here, I initially thought this may be from the mineral Row 5, but I don't rally see any mineral theme from what you have written here.
So I think this excited feeling and creativity is maybe from a plant kingdom 'Rubiaceae' family. The remedies belong to Rubiaceae family desire for stimulation and they usually have a lot of ideas, fantasies, excitement. They are creative people who pursue creative writing, music etc.

I'm not sure of her Miasm but her feelings about the dream of a white tiger may point to the Miasm of something closed to Acute miasm or Thyphoid miasm.

The remedy might be Ipecac or Chininum sulphuricum or somewhere around there. Ipecac has a lot of respiratory symptoms and some itching skin, but not sure so now you have to tell us the remedy.

Sulphur may be the remedy of choice

Did not realize this is Sankaran/ sensation method.

First- this is not case taking that works online-
Brisbane homeopath tried this online for years
And remedy would end up correct after he did regular case taking.Patients loved describing their dreams, sensations,
And were thrilled to hear they might be a dolphin,
A horse, a swan , exotic plant etc. A year later,
After no results, they were cured by a polycrest like Nat mur
When he retook the case with regular methods.

Second the “rows” of the mineral remedies pioneered
By jan schulten and sankaran have not had “proving “done- they are “theory”.

Third, the method of dividing people into plants,
Animals or minerals Is an artificial layer that
Just confuses things and sells books.

Fourth, I have suggested patients ( some homeopaths
Even) to go see in person some well known homeopaths
Who are main prescribers of this method in India.
Sankaran teaches his potency / dose method/
Which sounds reasonable? But in real life
The prescription was brutal - like take Lachesis
1m every day for 3 weeks ? Of course there was
Horrible aggravation and that patient ( a homeopath) was instructed to continue the daily dose???
Soon stopped believing in these people.

Cases sound great - but this is”guru” homeopathy and
It sells books.

no-i am not saying for online consultation.

this type of case taking cannot be done online.

this is good for practitioners having their clinics.

i have shared two links also for people who would like to follow the docs .

there are many cases listed in the second link,but no remedy has been mentioned.

oh my god lachesis for three weeks?who can prescribe like that.even in 200 potency it should not be repeated.

yes his books sell like hot cakes.

yes division does not serve any purpose,and not many are following that method .

Analysis Of The Patient.

“First,” Dr. Gandhi tells us, “identify the kingdom to which the patient belongs. The first step is to get your kingdoms right.” One is guided to the correct kingdom through tracing the patient’s words. The following guidelines direct one to the correct kingdom.

Mineral – Individuals who need a mineral talk about, “lacking something; lacking capacity, identify.” They may state, “The problem is me. I lack or I will lose. I am unable to do this because of this limitation. I am the problem. I wish I could do this….” They discuss structuring the life, relationship, role, performance, power, attack and defense.

Plant – Individuals who need plant remedies discuss being, “Stuck in one place and being unable to react,” or they show some “sensitivity to a situation and then react.” They talk about how things affect them. “This bothers me, this affects me.” For example, “I have been choked, contracted, constricted.” Plants show the feature of one basic sensation and the opposite. For example, tight and loose; pain and numbness; or tied and untied.

Animal – Individuals who need animal remedies generally speak about, “Not being the problem. Someone else is the problem.” For example, “My mother-in-law has made my life miserable.” They talk about another person. They talk about issues of survival, victim and aggressor, and attractiveness.

I find all this above to be artificial and over simplified.
You could have a person who missed stages of
Development due to a lack of parenting -mineral,they could be a naturally sensitive person(artist) plant, and then get
Caught up in an abusive relationship( animal)

They complain about the abuse and have plant type pains-
One can easily get off track here. Probably the case would go in layers and would work if it is repertorized the hahnemann

Many famous homeopaths have tried to use
Plant, mineral , animal and got nowhere -
I had most of the books and courses on this
And my conclusion is it is a waste of time.
