Review about the Signs of Commencing Improvement after Administration of Homoeopathic Medicine

Dr. Shweta Patil

Abstract: Homoeopathy is a system of medicine developed in 1796 by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, based on the Law of Similia. Before the times of Dr. Hahnemann, this law was stated as Similia Similibus Curanter meaning Like cures like. But to made it therapeutically applicable, Dr. Hahnemann modified the law as Similia Similibus Curentur meaning Let likes be cured by likes. Hahnemann reached this law with the help of inductive reasoning. In Homoeopathic treatment, the process of Case-Taking is very significant. Homeopaths work with patients to build the holistic picture of the patient & #039, s health. This involves the physical as well as the mental disposition of the patient. This Portrait of Disease will help for the individualization of the patient. This Totality of symptoms is then matched with Homoeopathic remedies. According to the system of Homoeopathy, the choice of the medicine is fundamentally based on the principle that the medicine must have the capability of producing most similar symptoms of the disease in healthy persons which are to be cured. In aphorism 26 of Organon of Medicine, Hahnemann states this law A weaker dynamic affection is permanently extinguished in the living organism by a stronger one, if the latter (whilst differing in kind) is very similar to the former in its manifestations. In Homeopathy, initially the knowledge of medicinal power of the drug is gained through the Drug Proving & only then that medicine is prescribed to the patient by Law of Similia. Drug proving is the systematic investigation of pathogenetic (disease-producing) power of medicine on healthy human being, of different ages, both sexes and of various constitutions. After giving the treatment, when patient is coming for the follow up, the careful observation is must from the side of physician, before giving the second prescription.
