What is Homeopathy?

The Law of Similiars

“The Law of Similars, a cornerstone of homeopathy, follows the principle of ‘like cures like’ (similia similibus curentur). It suggests that a substance causing symptoms in a healthy person can treat similar symptoms in an ill individual. Homeopathic remedies, prepared by dilution and succussion, aim to stimulate the body’s innate healing mechanisms without retaining the original substance’s molecules. For instance, if someone has allergy symptoms like watery eyes and a runny nose, a remedy from Allium cepa (red onion) might be prescribed. This principle is fundamental in triggering the body’s self-healing response and is central to homeopathic theory.”

Hering’s Law of Cure

“Hering’s Law of Cure, coined by homeopathic physician Constantine Hering, guides the healing trajectory in homeopathic treatment. It outlines the sequence of symptom resolution, emphasizing:

  1. Inside Out Healing: Improvement begins in internal organs or systems.
  2. Top-Down Progression: Symptoms move from higher to lower body parts.
  3. Reverse Order Improvement: Recently appeared or suppressed symptoms recede first.
  4. Temporary Intensification: A ‘healing crisis’ may occur, signaling positive response and imbalance elimination.

This framework aids homeopaths in assessing treatment effectiveness, ensuring alignment with the expected healing direction. Hering’s Law is a general observation drawn from clinical experience.”
