Basic Principles of Homeopathic TreatmentThe highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of the health, or removal and annihilation of the disease in its whole extent, in the shortest, most reliable, and most harmless way, on easily comprehensible principles.
-- Samuel Hahnemann, “The Organon of the Healing Art” Aphorism No2
The thing that distinguishes homeopathy from allopathy is a clear definition of the principles and laws on which treatment works and conforms thereto, and which agree with the natural ones.
The first basic principle of homeopathic treatment is LIKENESS already discussed hereinabove.
The second one reads that always ONLY ONE REMEDY shall be given under the principle of likeness according to the totality of symptoms. This means that after the patient is examined he should take only Pulsatilla, and while it is taken and until its effect is found, no other homeopathic remedies are allowed. Simultaneous intake of several homeopathic remedies (or mixed preparations) practiced by some “homeopaths”, for example, Belladonna in the morning, Pyrogenium at noon, and Mercurius in the evening, does not conform to “proving” of the remedies and their way of action. This upsets the response of the patient’s organism, and of the attending physician, as well.
The third principle refers to MINIMAL DOSE. Remedy shall be given in the smallest possible amount and shall not be repeated until the effect of the first dose finishes.
The fourth principle is the LAW OF HERING. Unfortunately, it is unknown to most of the physicians and medicine students because when patients suffering from chronic diseases are treated with common allopathic means, no real health restoration is achieved, and thus its manifestation remains unnoticed.
The Law of Hering describes the spots where the symptoms move to and disappear in the process of treatment of chronic diseases, namely:
(When mixed preparations or several homeopathic remedies are simultaneously applied, the Law of Hering does not work).
An idea of the “medical picture” of any remedy and its effects can be derived from:
All this information is collected in homeopathic medicinal reference books called Repertorium and Materia Medica.
