A homeopathic action is a law of nature. It is a Principle reality like Action and Reaction.We see it working around us in so many ways.
Homoeopathy the therapy, is a device to utilise the law of nature in a logical, controlled and repeatable manner in which to reverse dis-ease in suffering living organisms. The development of the therapeutics took many years to come to fruition under the guidance of Samuel Hahnemann, with constant refinement all along the way.
He ascertained the principle in action regarding expressed symptoms of a sick person, and found the substances could induce the very same symptoms when tested in a variety of dilutions on healthy persons. Once he established this connection, his life work progressed to testing many substances for an accurate recorded listing of the symptoms produced, and then tested them on sick individuals who exhibited the same symptoms in disease conditions.
He did not speculate on causation or theorise regarding a spiritual malaise or a psychosomatic division or a conflict in spirituality…….indeed he warned against that, and many disregarded his advice including Kent. Hahnemanns words regarding the finding of the disease state for cure are summed up in aphorism 6 of the Organon of Medicine.
§ 6 Fifth Edition
“The unprejudiced observer – well aware of the futility of transcendental speculations which can receive no confirmation from experience – be his powers of penetration ever so great, takes note of nothing in every individual disease, except the changes in the health of the body and of the mind (morbid phenomena, accidents, symptoms) which can be perceived externally by means of the senses; that is to say, he notices only the deviations from the former healthy state of the now diseased individual, which are felt by the patient himself, remarked by those around him and observed by the physician. All these perceptible signs represent the disease in its whole extent, that is, together they form the true and only conceivable portrait of the disease.
I know not, therefore, how it was possible for physicians at the sick-bed to allow themselves to suppose that, without most carefully attending to the symptoms and being guided by them in the treatment, they ought to seek and could discover, only in the hidden and unknown interior, what there was to be cured in the disease, arrogantly and ludicrously pretending that they could, without paying much attention to the symptoms, discover the alteration that had occurred in the invisible interior, and set it to rights with (unknown!) medicines, and that such a procedure as this could alone be called radical and rational treatment.
Is not, then, that which is cognizable by the senses in diseases through the phenomena it displays, the disease itself in the eyes of the physician, since he never can see the spiritual being that produces the disease, the vital force? nor is it necessary that he should see it, but only that he should ascertain its morbid actions, in order that he may thereby be enabled to cure the disease. What else will the old school search for in the hidden interior of the organism, as a prima causa morbi, whilst they reject as an object of cure and contemptuously despise the sensible and manifest representation of the disease, the symptoms, that so plainly address themselves to us? What else do they wish to cure in disease but these?*
* The physician whose researches are directed towards the hidden relations in the interior of the organism, may daily err; but the homoeopathist who grasps with requisite carefulness the whole group of symptoms, possesses a sure guide; and if he succeed in removing the whole group of symptoms he has likewise most assuredly destroyed the internal, hidden cause of the disease. “
This must surely negate any efforts by individuals who continually seek the “interior delusion” state for prescribing. Hahnemann as a physician and chemist and thinker, spent his life in experimentation eliciting the reasons and methodology for the application of the homoeopathic principle in a logical and controlled way, to allow the curative process inherent within each living organism to be aided by a ‘drug’ action.
Most of modern psychology is based on certain modes of thinking by individuals. In reality, it means the models employed are nothing more than opinions of how people think or react or how they should behave given the overlay of the psychologists thinking or explanation as to why things occur. It is not a proven science nor is it stable.
Hahnemann negated the need for all involvement in seeking a deep psychological reason for prescribing, and gave the ONLY REQUIREMENTS NECESSARY for eliciting the true picture of individualized disease. It is not a diagnosis of a named disease, it is the true expression of how infecting agents or how a progression of symptoms causing discomfort affect the recipient SOLELY.
If reading the above aphorism does not cause you to reflect along sound medical principles and homoeopathic understanding, then you will spend the rest of your life practicing a bastardized and useless form of homeopathy, and be forever chasing philosophies and mens adaptions on a theme which will make them very rich and leave you a poorer physician professionally.
There are many paths to the homeopathic principle being applied, but only one utilising a well researched and proven and repeatable application of medicines along sound, practical and scientific lines. It only works if applied correctly. There is no place for remedy families, Sensation method, polarities, element tables etc. There is only the simplicity of Hahnemanns words.
