Homeopathy is founded on the basic principle, similia similibus curentur “like is cured by like”, recognized by Samuel Hahnemann. He sought to cure the patient rather than simply suppress the symptoms of disease. The treatment provided goes along with rather than against the body’s own efforts to regain health. The essential requirement is a very close similarity between the remedy and the pattern of the disease. The active ingredient is given in such dilute form; unwanted side effects are seldom seen. This gives the advantage of a treatment method that stimulates and accelerates natural healing forces without causing side effects.
When using homeopathic remedies, diagnosis of a specific disease is just a starting point in determining a treatment. Different animals experience diseases in different ways. One horse may seek the warmth of a stall while running a fever and another may look for a cool spot to rest. Using the symptoms being shown by the animal one must find a remedy that fits the whole picture of the animal. The biological diversity of each individual is recognized with homeopathy.
If a remedy that is close to the proper remedy is chosen then some of the animal’s symptoms may get better while new ones show up. If this happens you should look at your choice of remedies again. The remedy selected must closely match the spectrum of symptoms found in the patient. The deeper the level of the match of symptoms that are selected the deeper and more thorough the cure can be. Success with homeopathy depends on removals of the obstacles to healing (poor diet, bad husbandry, etc.), selection of the correct remedy, and the ability of the body to heal.
