Why choose Classical Homoeopathy?
Homoeopaths who practice according to the principles of homoeopathy as set down by the founder of homoeopathy, Dr Samuel Hahnemann in his Organon of medicine use the prefix ‘Classical’ to differentiate themselves from practitioners who prescribe homoeopathic remedies outside of these principles.
Those main principles are:
•The single remedy
•The minimum dose
•The law of similars
•The vital principle
•The totality of symptoms
•The proving of remedies on healthy individuals
•The potentisation of remedies
Therefore when treating patients a ‘classical’ homoeopath will prescribe a single, well selected remedy in the minimum dose required and always take full account of the totality of symptoms (mental, emotional and physical) You will notice that some homoeopaths advocate and teach the use of complex prescribing using a combination of remedies. Dr Hahnemann states emphatically that this practice is wrong, unnecessary and “absolutely not allowed” in homoeopathy (Aph 273).
At the Yorkshire Centre of Classical Homoeopathy we promise that we will always teach our students and treat our patients according to the principles of homoeopathy.
We encourage our students to be progressive in their outlook and embrace innovation in homoeopathy safe in the knowledge that through our teaching and guidance they fully understand what is permissible in homoeopathy and what is not.
