A Homeopathy Model in the Light of Hahnemann’s Pristine Idea
The well-known definition of disease, which Samuel Hahnemann presented while making a challenge to provide a tentative theory for his new science and art of healing, is used as a starting point for the model. The biochemical equilibrium is used for a demonstration of the Le Chatelier-Braun principle and/or the Guldberg–Waage Law in order to clarify the principles and to explain the well-known “Law of Similar”. It is shown that a high dilution accompanied by succession is required to release the remedies to their constituent molecular species in order to increase their “vital energy” when taking part in the overall complex biochemical equilibrium that is essential for healing. In addition, it is revealed that, in principle, a single remedy constituent molecular species, when it is in excess, as well as satisfying the dynamic equilibrium, can shift this biochemical equilibrium and trigger the healing process.
