After Hahnemann completed the “provings” of drugs in his early pharmacopeia he administered them to the sick by matching the “proven” symptoms of the drugs with the symptoms belonging to the patient; selecting those drugs capable of producing pictures that were most similar to the state of the patient. Hahnemann chose to focus on the characteristic symptoms that differentiated individuals suffering from the same diagnosable illnesses. He utilized the differences between individual experiences of illness as a basis for differentiating between closely comparable treatments.
Hahnemann considered the subjective experience of illness to be paramount in the correct application of medicinal treatment to bring about a cure. Utilizing this approach, many individuals with the same diagnosis would conceivably receive different treatments if their symptoms varied from one another even in subtle fashion.
Hahnemann considered the observable, pathological state of illness to be a secondary condition that developed after an individual had already been sick at a deeper, more energetic level. He felt that the physical manifestations of illness were actually relatively late effects of disease taking place at a more primal level. The homeopathic treatment of disease included consideration the underlying causes of that affected the health promoting energies of the body. Hahnemann called this the “vital force”.
This energy system which Hahnemann called the “vital force” was postulated to act as agovernor in the balance between health and illness. If this state of energy was disturbed, then the physical body became susceptible to infection, and disease as a secondary event. Hahnemann believed that homeopathic medicines were capable of redirecting and rebalancing this vital force as a way of assisting the body and regaining health.
