Some Homoeopathy History

The word homoeopathy comes from two Greek words; homoios like or similar and pathos suffering. It is a method of cure based on the law that a substance that will produce symptoms in a healthy person will cure similar symptoms in an unhealthy person. This is called the law of similars. Samuel Hahnemann, although not the discoverer of this law, was the first to formulate a system of medicine based on it. He presented this system in the book called the Organon. Another main principle of homoeopathy is the law of the minimum dose, which simply states that the patient is to be given the least amount of the remedy necessary to cure.

Samuel Hahnemann was a doctor and chemist who lived from the middle of 18th to the middle of the 19th century (1755 -1843). He felt the methods of treatment in his day were inhumane and so gave up medicine and took up work as a translator. One example of suc treatment was poly-pharmacy, the making of medicines out of many substances without understanding their effects. The more substances it contained the better it was supposed to be and many contained toxic substances. A popular brew of the time contained fifty ingredients but some contained up to four hundred.

While working at translating, questions arose in Hahnemann’s mind about a particular book’s comments on cinchona’s (from which quinine is derived) ability to cure malaria. He decided to take measured doses of cinchona and found it produced the symptoms of malaria. When he stopped taking the cinchona the symptoms stopped. So he asked the obvious question, could it cure by virtue of the fact that it produced the same symptoms as malaria? The answer was yes.

Hahnemann went on to test many other substances, on himself and friends. This testing he called a proving, which is like an artificial disease. He carefully recorded the symptoms, mental, emotional and physical that they produced. Thousands of substances have since been tested or proved.

Now Homoeopaths, by using a Repertory, which is a book containing an arrangement of symptoms, look up the patient’s symptoms and see which remedies have those symptoms. Then by using a Materia Medica, which is an alphabetic list of substances and their therapeutic actions, the patient’s entire symptom picture is compared with the recorded symptoms of a substance. The most similar substance to the patient’s symptom picture is then administered.

Hahnemann stated one must ‘clearly perceive what is to be cured in diseases, that is to say, in every individual case of disease and clearly perceive what is curative in medicines’. Very simply we must know how to take the symptoms of the patient and then match them with the symptoms of the remedy.
