2. What is “a disease” in homeopathy

You have decided to use homeopathy as a treatment - I will tell you the basic principles of homeopathic medicine, the way you will be treated.  It is very important to realize that homeopathic treatment differs greatly from what we used to in conventional allopathic medicine.

In homeopathy we consider a course of a disease as a certain dynamic process, which, as long as a human being  lives, is constantly moving in one of two directions.  In the direction of recovery in case of consistent functioning of self-regulatory systems or in case of proper  regulatory therapy; or in the direction of disease progression in case of self-regulatory system dysfunction or in case of suppressive therapy.

We consider a course of a disease as a consequent undergoing of certain stages.

Let me detail it.

Every human being all through his life is suffering from one and the same illness, which is progressing over the years. In homeopathy a disease is considered to undergo 5 stages in its progress:

Therefore, according to the concept of homeopathic medicine, the way and the time a person will live does not depend on ecology or allergens, viruses or bacteria, but only on how quickly his organism will  undergo all these stages. Let me again point up that as long as an organism lives it constantly seeks to reverse the course of its disease in the direction of recovery, i.e. to the first stage. A baby born even at the fifth stage, i.e. having any serious organic lesion, activates the self-regulatory mechanisms right after it was born, guiding the disease to the stage of  inflammation, and then – to the stage of mucous and integumental excretions. Any further prognosis of its life may depend on whether “the mind” of the organism will be suppressed at this very stage or not.

And for the rest of our life the way we manage to cope with this or that problem entirely depends on how healthy constitution is. I.e. at which stage its disease is.

We often take notice that during one and the same epidemy, influenza, for example, healthy people may have just enlarged cutaneous eruption, while all the family came down with a bad cold. The others during the same epidemy will have only high temperature and then mucous excretions (sniffles, cough, diarrhea, etc). The thirds will come through the inflammation from  lungs to brain, the fourths – through decompensation from  kidneys to  heart.
