A Bayesian perspective on the reliability of homeopathic repertories.

Abstract

An interim assessment of likelihood ratio of homeopathic symptoms shows that there are serious flaws in Kent's repertory. The system of expressing relationship between symptoms and expected results from medicines by type-face is unclear and unreliable. Bayesian methods can improve this and expand the possibilities of the repertory including the possibility of interpreting the absence of expected symptoms.
