Dr. S.R. Phatak describes the clinically confirmed symptoms of the homeopathic remedy Cundurango in his Concise Materia Medica, published in 1977….


      Condor plant was introduced as a cancerous remedy. Painful cracks in the corners of the mouth is a guiding symptom in cancerous or syphilitic conditions. Tumours; strictures of the oesophagus. Cancer of the stomach, with constant burning and vomiting; food seems to stick behind the sternum. Cancer of the mammae with retraction of the nipples, with lancinating pains emanating from the tumour over the whole breast. Jagged ulcers of the tongue. This remedy is worth trying when other seemingly indicated remedies fail to impress the disease.


      Aster; Con; Hydrastis

S.R. Phatak
A pioneer of Homoeopathy in Maharashtra, Dr Shankar Raghunath Phatak was born on 6th September, 1896. He did his MBBS from Grant Medical College, in 1924. Started his practice but somehow not satisfied with Allopathic Treatment.

He was convinced about Homoeopathy while going through Sir William Osler's writings on 'History of Medicine' so switched over to an entirely Homoeopathic Practice in 1932. He also started working on Homoeopathic literature along with his Practice.

He has contributed immensely to homoeopathic literature. He was an ardent follower of Dr Boger. His Repertory is based on Boger's ''A Synoptic key to Materia Medica'.
