Law of Similars

R B Homeopathic Services

Hahnemann observed from his experiments with cinchona bark, used as a treatment for malaria, that the effects he experienced from ingesting the bark were similar to the symptoms of malaria. He therefore decided cure proceeds through similarity, and treatments must be able to produce symptoms in healthy individuals similar to those of the disease being treated.[22] Through further experiments with other substances, Hahnemann conceived of the "law of similars", otherwise known as "let like be cured by like" (Latin: similia similibus curentur)[23][24] as a fundamental healing principle. He believed that by using drugs to induce symptoms, the artificial symptoms would stimulate the vital force, causing it to neutralise and expel the original disease and that this artificial disturbance would naturally subside when the dosing ceased.[22] It is based on the belief that a substance that in large doses will produce symptoms of a specific disease will, in extremely small doses, cure it.

Research increasingly shows that the lifestyle choices that people make can have a major effect on how they cope and recover from illness . Right choices at every stage of your life is journey to better health. Why, when a group of people are exposed to the same common cold virus, do some individuals suffer a raging throat and streaming nose while others have mild symptoms or are totally unaffected? There are no simple answers to these questions: genes , environment and lifestyle all play a part - and each affects the other in its own ways.

While we have little control over some factors, such as our genes and environment there is much we can do to influence how our bodies respond, for example, to infection, trauma and potential allergens. We can also learn to deal with our emotions to protect our mental health.

According to Cancer Research UK, up to half of cancers could be prevented by lifestyle changes. Emerging research shows that the same kind of changes - avoiding cigarettes and alcohol, eating healthily and exercising - can also affect survival rates in people who have already developed the disease. And according to INTERHEART, (2004) study, as many as 90 per cent of first heart attacks could be prevented by lifestyle changes. Even people with genetic predisposition to a particular illness should not assume that the outcome is inevitable.

Families with history of heart disease once believed that nothing could be done to prevent successive generations succumbing to this condition, often dying prematurely. But today those with raised cholesterol can slash the chances of heart attack by taking appropriate medication, improving their diet and increasing the amount of exercise they take and they should take.

Disease prevention rightly commands massive attention. But until we can protect against every illness - an unlikely achievement - we need to continue to focus on boosting our chances of recovery. Doctors hold some of the keys to that process but many others are in our own hands - known collectively as the "four pillars of health".
  1. Attitude - Counts
  2. Diet - Repairs.
  3. Exercise - Strengthens.
  4. Sleep - Heals.

Further details on this will be posted in few days.
