Doctor Filip Degroote graduated as Doctor in Medicine in 1978. He has a full-time classical homeopathic practice since 1980. He developed under impulse of doctor A. Pladys a first pioneer work concerning clinical and energetic examination in homeopathy, of which the findings were put in the book 'Physical Examination and Observations in the Homoeopathy' (1992). This book edition is now quasi exhausted and is only available in its electronic form via Archibel/RADAR. An enlarged revised edition will be soon available.
Through application of this method, which is partly based on ‘applied and clinical kinesiology’, the simillimum in every patient can be identified.
In a second book 'Notes on miasms, heredity and remedy-interactions’ (1994) he made a difference between individual and hereditary energy in every human being. He concluded that the hereditary energy of a person shows itself in the symptom rubrics of the patient which contain Carc., Med., Syph. and Tub. Consequently those nosodal symptoms must be avoided to be taken into consideration when making a repertorisation to find the ‘individual’ homeopathic remedy of the patient.
The first part, which consists of 60 pages, has been remade totally and re-edited in 2010 under the title ‘Notes on miasms and heredity’ (B. Jain Archibel s.p.r.l.) and consists now of about 260 pages.
The crowning glory of his many years of practice is the set up of a data-base of dreams coming especially from his own practice.
Doctor Degroote has gathered in the last 20 years about 150.000 additions, which are available at RADAR. Those are forming the base to make a better analysis of the homeopathic patients, together with the data we have from especially Hahnemann, Kent, Vithoulkas, Scholten en Sankaran.
In order to use those data in the best way the author has written a guideline book to make it the practitioner more easy to find his way in the dreamland of our patients ‘Dromen vanuit homeopathisch perspectief’ (2004) of which now an English edition is ready (edition expected in 2014).
