Foundational Principles of Homeopathy

Homeopathy is an art and a science. Homeopaths need to determine the strength of a patient's energy in order to match a homeopathic potency to that energy.

One key to prescribing the right remedy is to ask the following question: What are the inherited genetic predispositions to certain diseases that run in a person's family lineage?

A fundamental principle in homeopathy is "that which has the power to make a healthy person sick also has the power to make a sick person healthy." This refers to the "provings" of the remedy, which include all the symptoms a remedy can induce in a healthy person.

Homeopathic remedies are made using carefully controlled serial dilution and succession of the medicinal substance. The result is a remedy which contains only the energy of the medicine.

Homeopaths use the smallest possible amount of a remedy, just enough to stimulate the patient's healing response.

Only one remedy and one potency are given at a time, because the provings of the original homeopathic remedies were done in this way.

The totality of the case gives a picture of a person's symptoms and traits on every level, including physical, emotional, and mental.
