The Principle of Similars
"Any substance that can cause symptoms when given to
healthy people can help heal those who are sick with similar symptoms"

was fond of quoting: "drugs
are sick-making and sick-curing, and the sickness is the same"
work on this principle. When they are carefully selected to match the symptoms
of the whole person who is ill they can help heal the disease.

will treat the constitution of the person who is ill with a unique homeopathic
remedy that matches the total symptom picture, to stimulate self healing. This
is according to the philosophy of medicine and healing written by Samual
Hahnemann in "The Organon of Medicine"
