The principles that underpin homeopathy were laid down clearly by the founder of the art, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, in his Organon of Medicine(1). In a footnote to Aphorism 260 of the sixth edition of this venerable work(2), he outlines the factors that are likely to adversely affect the activity of the Similimum, or remedy whose proving picture best matches the presentation of the patient...
Editor´s Note from Judith Hanna Doshi: Robert's article serves as a reminder to both homeopathic practitioners and clients that attention must be paid to factors that can potentially antidote the positive action of a homeopathic simillimum or adversely affect the properties of the remedies themselves. While there remains some debate on these issues, homeopathic remedies appear to be fairly hardy although some degree of caution in the handling of remedies is probably the wise course.

Editor's Note from Judith Hanna Doshi: In this article, Dana gives us an intriguing glimpse into homeopathic history: leading politicians of the later nineteenth and early twentieth centuries continued to favor Homeopathy as their treatment of choice despite vicious antagonism from conventional medical circles.

Have you ever stopped to ask yourself how healthy you really are? How often do you find yourself reaching for anything that will give you fast relief for your symptoms? Do you wonder whether managing your symptoms in this way qualifies as being in good health, as conventional medical thought would have us believe? What in fact does being truly healthy look like?...
Editor´s Note from Judith Hanna Doshi: It is not an overstatement to say that we take our health for granted and that what we regard as health is really just the suppression of symptoms. In this article I turn conventional ideas of health and disease on their head and present a new definition based on classical principles of Homeopathy dating back to Hahnemann.

Homeopathy is an effective system of natural health care that uses remedies made from minute amounts of specially prepared natural substances to stimulate the body and mind to heal naturally. One of the basic premises of homeopathy is that the mind, body and emotions are inseparably inter-linked. Samuel Hahnemann, who founded homeopathy almost 200 years ago, said when a person gets ill, he is affected emotionally and mentally as well as physically...
Editor's Note from Judith Hanna Doshi: Many people seek homeopathic treatment for emotional imbalances or inability to cope. In this article, Jane explains how a well chosen homeopathic remedy can benefit a person's emotional state and, as an added bonus, enhance and complement ongoing psychotherapy.

Homeopaths sometimes refer to the vital force. By this we mean the life principle which maintains us as living beings, with drives for survival, learning, love and creativity. Our defense mechanism, our immune system, our homeostatic mechanisms, are all agents of this force...

When Hahnemann experimentally dosed himself with China in 1790, he conducted the first homeopathic proving, if an informal one. A proving is a controlled experiment in which the effects of a medicine are tested. (Homeopathic medicines are known as remedies.)...
