Dr. Ila Yadav


Abstract: Dr. Constantine Hering, father of Homoeopathy in America, gave an invaluable contribution in the history of Homoeopathy with his four incredible clinical observation, as stated; "From above downwards, From within outwards, From more important organ to less important organ, Symptoms disappear in the reverse order of their appearance.", commonly known as "Hering's direction of cure". The objective of the study is to determine, If Hering's "direction of cure" is applicable in all cases where homoeopathic medicine is administered on the basis of symptom similarity. Result: Out of 50 patients, 80% (40 cases) followed the direction of cure and showed marked/moderate improvement whereas 4% (2 cases) followed the direction of cure after second prescription. Only a small proportion of case i.e., 16% (8 cases) did not follow the direction of cure and showed mild/no improvement (which includes 5 dropped out cases). Affectability of Hering's direction of cure in homoeopathic treatment is found statistically significant using Paired T - test at confidence level 95%. Conclusion: This study has shown the efficacy of Hering's direction of cure in homoeopathic treatment and have a statistically significant impact on the improvement of patient's complaints.
