Symptoms as Defenses IV
In this post in the series of Symptoms as Defenses we address the homeopathic law of similars. The homeopathic law of similars is fundamentally a method by which one can find an individually chosen substance to which an organism is most sensitive. When the organism receives this message, its immune and defense systems are catalyzed to begin a curative process. Basic research in immunology, allergy, and physics provides evidence of the regenerative effects of “similars” upon the defense system, but homeopathy has already transformed this pharmacological principle into a sophisticated medical science and art.
