About the author

Joseph Fernandez

Joseph S Fernandez started his career as an assistant in the High Court of Kerala after obtaining a master’s degree in English language and literature. Later, he opted for a banking career.
Even as a student, Joseph was deeply interested in homoeopathy and made an in-depth study of the subject. He uses his expertise for the management of an occasional minor ailment in the family or among friends. It is in this context that he decided to compile a handy and easy-to-use repertory. The task required deep study and a sentence-by-sentence analysis of Boericke’s Materia Medica. Joseph’s Repertory is the result of this work.

  • Hi Hare Krishna,

    First, please note that I’m not a qualified homoepathic doctor.

    However, you can find a suitable medicine for the condition using my repertory.
    Go to the Urine chapter and search for “incontinence” using your PC’s search command (Control + F). You’ll see that the remedy for “Incontinence in aged, bearing-down sensation and enlarged prostate” is Aloe Socotrina.

    Please click on Aloe Socotrina and see whether the symptoms, etc., match.
