Homeopathy is both a science and an art

Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann M.D. (1755-1843), born in Meissen, Saxony, Germany; is the founder of homeopathy.

Homeopathy is a scientific therapeutic system (medicine) that requires matching characteristic symptoms of the patient to the chosen homeopathic remedy by thoroughly applying the Law of Similars - ‘similia similibus curentur’. The important symptoms of the patient should be collected during case taking and should be perfectly matched with the homeopathic remedy. This process of case taking and matching makes it both an art and a science.

What is a polychrest?
Another important principle in homeopathy is that a patient should be given a remedy in suitable potency. The homeopathic potency or the medicine in minimum dose ranges from 1X or 1C up to 50 millismal potency.

It goes without saying; homeopathic medicines used on the patients are proved on human beings. A true homeopathic Materia Medica is built-up after several verifications on the patients and provers. This aspect of homeopathy is called clinical provings and verification.

When the substance is proved and verified clinically many times over, that remedy becomes a dependable ‘polychrest’, which can then be applied to the patient in multiple pathological states, conditions or diseases.
