11. Homeopathy as a regulatory therapy

In official medicine all science and practice are focused on research of a certain disease and, thereafter, the medicaments are being studied for the purposes of a certain disease. That is why in official medicine all doctors are narrowly focused specialists and cure, correspondingly, either hypertension, or pneumonia, or ulcer, etc.
In homeopathy the key point is that it is impossible for the disease to progress in one certain organ or system. The influence of any disease-producing factor on any organ or system or even a cell inevitably leads to a reaction of the whole organism. It is manifested in the activation of protection systems (or vital force – a term, introduced by S. Hahnemann into homeopathic theory).
In allopathy we are being taught that any painful symptom occurred is always a problem, and all theory and practice of allopathic medicine are aimed to eliminate or “suppress” (the term we use in homeopathy) this state. Even the names of the methods used in allopathy are entitled precisely – suppressive or substitutive therapy (more than that, the names of medicaments sound like: anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, antiemetic, etc. )
Homeopathy is a regulatory therapy, a homeopath considers that the organism “knows itself” which protective factors should be empowered at the moment in case of intervention of a certain pathogenic factor. Thus, the coming symptoms of a disease are the necessary reaction of an organism at the moment, with relation to the self-regulatory systems of this particular patient.
That is why, there is no and cannot be narrowly focused specialists in homeopathy.
In homeopathy there is no and cannot be the medicaments for constipation, blood pressure or alcoholism. In homeopathy it is a patient to be cured, not a disease. That is why, in the case of correct homeopathic prescription, the remedy at the first stage should not expel the manifestations of a disease, but intensify them to help the self-regulatory systems to cope with the pathogenic factor.
