Homeopaths work with the individual to restore a state of health. They do not diagnose or treat a disease, unlike practitioners of mainstream medicine, they recognize and treat the unique state of each individual’s vital energy as expressed in mental, emotional, and physical symptoms and characteristics. The homeopath seeks to remove the ailment by using remedies that stimulate the individual’s own inherent ability to heal and thus encourage the body to cure, instead of simply suppressing symptoms.
The classical homeopath selects the single most appropriate remedy in a potency that most closely matches the illness by investigating the individual’s state of health in a thorough case-taking. They analyze the case by using the symptoms and characteristics that show the uniqueness of the individual with special emphasis placed on a known cause of the sickness or any striking symptoms or themes. After taking the case, a selection of the most similar remedy is determined through differentiation. The medicine that most closely matches the symptoms and the individual is prescribed in a single and minute dose. Only one remedy is ever prescribed at one time.
The client’s case is followed carefully and any changes that have occurred since taking the prescribed remedy are analyzed. The remedy and its action will be evaluated so that the course of healing can continue until complete healing is achieved.
Beyond this distinction, the classical Hahnemannian homeopath also practices in a coherent way according to the principles of homeopathy as explained in Hahnemann’s Organon of Medicine.
