The color tables and the repertory (Colors in Homeopathy) together comprise a complete working tool: The color tables with 120 colors is the tool used to determine color preference. They are printed from 24 pure colors using an elaborate processing technique. The color table can be fully opened up and presented to the patient separately from the accompanying text, without needing to turn the pages (as previously required). On the back, there are overview tables to simplify the choice of color. This includes a small overview of all colors on a single page as well as the black-white scale and the new colors silver and gold. They facilitate the differentiation of well-known remedies and also indicate rarer remedies that we might otherwise easily overlook. This work is the worldwide color standard in homeopathy and is used by a number of schools. link to the color list.
Third revised edition
“The color preference is a significant and effective symptom. It‘s effective in the sense that it can indicate or confirm a diagnosis in many cases. The color preference is a peculiar symptom expressing the inner state of the patient, which is the state of the remedy. And it‘s a very specific symptom. The table designed by Ulrich Welte is the most usable I‘ve seen so far. All colors are clear and accurately standardized, so it can be used without ambiguity.“ Jan Scholten, 2003 “Through this work I have travelled down unexpected paths to the simillimum and have procured cures I could never have hoped for with the regular homeopathic method. The wonder of color selection has led me to choose medicines I would never have previously used with great success as well as confirming effective medicines where before I would have been riddled with doubt.“ Peter Tumminello, 2009 The color preference expresses the inner state of a patient directly, and as such it is a significant and specific homeopathic symptom. It has been helpful to indicate or confirm the correct diagnosis of a remedy in many cases. 18 years of clinical experience in thousands of cases stand behind this publication. The color preference as a homeopathic symptom was discovered by H.V. Müller in 1985. The 120 colors presented in this book were selected according to clinical relevance and allow us to assess the color preference with sufficient accuracy. The corresponding remedies can be looked up in the color/remedy list like in a repertory. The printed version comprises more than 1000 well-confirmed remedies. The list of the website is updated regularly with the latest clinical findings. www.homeo.de/en/colorsInHomeopathyLists.html Every patient has a relatively simple ‘genius’ or a core idea of his ailment as a ‘gestalt’ of important symptoms. Hahnemann called this ‘gestalt’ as ‘Symptomen-Inbegriff’, meaning the essence in contrast to the bulk of the totality of symptoms. This genius is rooted in the personal disposition of the vital force, which gives a general background in the form of a basic emotional state or a basic vibration, quite like a monochromatic canvas on which the more specific 'gestalt' of the disease is painted. In the same way remedies have an essence, a core idea, composed of a general (organotropy, general modalities, colour preference) and a specific (special keynotes, particulars) nature. To match the essence of a remedy with the genius of a patient's disease is the homeopathic art in a nutshell. The disposition is a kind of vibration and can be linked to firm favourite or abhorrent colours. Colours are physically defined by wavelength of light vibrations, and their subjective psychological perception as favourite or disliked colours mainly reflect the patient's disposition and to a lesser degree also the core idea of a ‘Gestalt’ of symptoms. The same is true with the genius of a remedy. The attunement of both is due to similarity of vibration and leads to resonance. As an example, the wavelength of pure Yellow (1-2C) is around 570-590 nm and so are the clinically detected colours of Agar, Cann-i, Gels, Hell, Hyos, and of some lesser known remedies. The best cases of these remedies have shown that patients cured with these remedies preferred this colour. Their personal vibration is obviously similar to this colour wavelength. We repeat: This vibration is not pathology but their individual emotional disposition. But if we find a remedy matching a patient’s general disposition plus the peculiar nature of the disease with particular symptoms, we are more sure to have a deep acting remedy than only with a similarity of peculiarities. So if we find a clear preponderance of say yellow in a patient we might consider these remedies first and check if the pathology of our patient matches one of these remedy pictures well. This combined method has given good results with many practitioners who sincerely work with it. It is not esoteric bogus. It is tested and a logical parallel to food and temperature modalities etc. Try and see for yourself. It will prove to be a good supplement to your other repertory work if you give it a fair chance. Colour preference is a valuable dispositional symptom which is easy to obtain and quite reliable.
