James Tyler Kent, MD (Born in Woodhull, New York, 1849) proved many new remedies. He advocated the use of potencies made on the centesimal scale. Dr. Kent introduced the doctrine of ‘Series in Degrees’ in the treatment o chronic diseases, ‘Theory of Octaves’ and ‘Law of Vital Action and Reaction’. He laid importance on mind symptoms in treating chronic cases. He taught Materia Medica at the Homeopathic Medical College of St. Louis from 1881-88, at the School of Homeopathy, Philadelphia from 1890-99, at Hahnemann Medical College and Hospital, Chicago from 1903-09. His repertory which was published in 1897 remains the most sought after book in homeopathy till date. He died on 6th June 1916 but his contributions to the field of homeopathy are immortal. Dr Harsh Nigam after doing MBBS and MD (Physiology) could not suppress the heritage of homeopathy that he received from his scholarly Homeopath father, Dr Jagdish Chandra Nigam. He obtained his membership of faculty o the British Homeopathic Association from the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital. He has been practicing homeopathy since 1993 not as a banal homeopath but with outlook which combines psyche and physical cure, as laid down by Dr Hahnemann.
