Principles of Homeopathy – Part 2

Homeopathy is a rational science with respect to its concept of health, disease and cure. There are many principles that homeopathy follows and some of them have described below:

Law of Simplex
One single medicine for the patient at any given time
Law of Simplex is one part of the main base on which Homeopathy rests. There are other bases also that are required to complete the base. According to Law of Simplex, when treating human ailments, whether one or more, the only single remedy is to be administered that covers all the ailments that a patient reports. The law states that only single remedy and a single dose is to be administered.
While treating ailments using Homeopathy, a patient cannot be viewed in fragments as each part of the body depends on each other, and all of them together act as one, in health and disease.
What is a disease? It is the disturbance of the whole organism, with maybe symptoms to specific parts. Our body parts do not get sick independently. Therefore, homeopathy doesn’t believe in giving different medicines for different afflicted parts of the body; rather give one single remedy to cover the disturbance. Yes, in homeopathy you do not require to visit ten different specialists for your ten different body parts.

Arndt Schulz Law
The law of minimum dose got verified by Arndt-Schulz law. This law explains the reverse/ dual action of drugs. This principle was concurrently discovered by two separate researchers, Rudolf Arndt, a homeopath and Hugo Schulz, a conventional scientist.
According to this law, “weak stimuli slightly accelerate the vital activity, medium-strong stimuli raise it, strong ones suppress it and very strong ones halt it”. In other words, substances vary in action depending on their concentration- high, medium, or low. Minimal doses of a drug stimulate, medium doses inhibit or suppress and large doses destroy cellular activity.
This opposite action of large and small doses of medicine is known as ‘bi-phase response’, which is also known as ‘reverse action of drugs’. Every medicine has two action phases and that depends on the dosage. Therefore, rather than the effectiveness of a medicine increasing with the increase of the dosage, research has consistently proven that very small dosages of a substance have the opposite result of larger ones.
