‘Similia Similibus Curentur’ Explains A Real Phenomenon Of Nature- Not An ‘Imagination’ Of Hahnemann

The corner-stone of all skeptic arguments against homeopathy is that ‘similia similibus curentur’ is not a real ‘pattern’ existing in nature- but only an unreal imagination of hahnemann which was wrongly raised to the status of a ‘natural law’ and ‘followed’ by the homeopaths without questioning. Skeptics raise this argument to establish that homeopathy is a ‘pseudoscience’ and ‘faith healing’, since it is the method of pseudoscience to read out imaginary patterns of events from nature and make them ‘laws and principles’ of their theoretical ‘systems’.

If ‘similia similibus curentur’ is only an unreal and imaginary ‘pattern’, homeopathy ceases to exist. That is obvious, since whole system of homeopathy is founded on this ‘basic principle’.

There are two components involved in this ‘principle’- ‘drug symptoms’ and ‘disease symptoms’. This principle tries to explain a peculiar relationship existing between these components. Does such a relationship exist in nature, or is it only an ‘imagination’ of hahnemann? If there exist such a relationship, can we explain its molecular level mechanism in scientific terms leaving aside the ‘explanation’ provided by hahnemann within the historical limitations of scientific knowledge available to him during his period?

We have to examine this question from two angles. First, we have to verify whether there exist an ‘objective’ relationship between drug symptoms and disease symptoms which hahnemann observed and interpreted. Second point is, if such a relationship is real, whether the subjective ‘explanation’ or ‘interpretation’ of hahnemann about such an ‘objective’ phenomenon was right or wrong. Hahnemann might be right or wrong, or partially right. Even if he ‘explained’ it wrongly, that does not mean the objective’ pattern of events in nature he observed in nature do not exist. If the phenomenon is real and hahnemann explain it wrongly, we have to explain it rightly using the advanced scientific knowledge now available to us now- it should not inevitably lead us to the conclusion that the observed phenomenon does not exist.

In its elaborate sense, the term ‘symptoms’ incorporates ‘every’ subjective and objective expressions that could be observed or perceived in the individual, including the chemical processes as revealed by laboratory investigations as well as physical changes as revealed by modern diagnostic tools and gadgets.

SImilia Similibus Curentur explains the peculiar relationship between ‘disease symptoms’ and ‘drug symptoms’.

DRUG SYMPTOMS means, symptoms representing the molecular level errors produced by the inhibitory actions of drug molecules upon the biological molecules in a healthy organism when drug substance is introduced into it.

DISEASE SYMPTOMS means, symptoms representing the molecular level errors produced by the inhibitory actions of endogenous or exogenous pathogenic molecules upon the biological molecules in a healthy organism.

When disease symptoms expressed by a patient appears to be SIMILAR to the known drug symptoms produced by any of the previously proven drug substance upon a healthy individual, that means, the molecular errors present in the disease as well as the molecular level errors produced by the drug substance were SIMILAR. That in turn means, same biological molecules were affected by the drug molecules and the disease-causing pathogenic molecules. Such a similarity of molecular error happens only when the pathogenic molecules and drug molecules have similar functional groups having similar molecular conformations, so that they could bind to same biological target molecules.

When disease-causing molecules and drug molecules are having similar molecular conformations, they will compete each other to bind to the biological targets, when both the pathogenic molecules and drug molecules work in the body simultaneously. Such a competitive relationship between drug molecules and pathogenic molecules may be utilized to remove pathological molecular inhibitions by applying similar drug molecules. Hahnemann was observing this competitive relationship between SIMILAR drug molecules and disease molecules while talking about ‘similia similibus curentur’, even though he could not explain the molecular mechanism behind this phenomenon, due to obvious historical limitations.

Even though SIMILAR drug molecules can remove molecular inhibibitions caused by pathogenic molecules and thereby cure diseases, there is always the chances of producing new inhibitions by drug molecules, which hahnemann observed as side effects and medicinal aggravations. In order to avoid this possibility, hahnemannn started to make drug substances more and more diluted, which led him to the invention of POTENTIZATION. BY potentization, drug molecules are replaced by HYDROSOMES or molecular imprinted supra-molecular nano cavities, which can act as target specific artificial binding sites for pathogenic molecules due to the complementary conformational affinity. Since molecular imprints cannot produce molecular inhibitions in biological molecules, they never produce bad effects.

Similia Similibus Curentur is not anybody’s imagination as skeptics try to depict it. It is a REAL PATTERN existing in nature, that explains the competitive relationship in biological environment between drug molecules and pathogenic molecules having functional groups of similar conformations.

I started practicing homeopathy in 1970, when I was 20 years old and studying for final year of BSc (Zoology) course. My interest in homeopathy happened very accidentally, through a constant relationship with a local practitioner who happened to be father of my classmate. I was a regular visitor in his clinic, where from I started reading BOERICKE MATERIA MEDICA and other homeopathic books, which helped me to cure myself my troublesome asthma that have been haunting me since my childhood days. I became a voracious reader of homeopathy. I was also deeply involved in studying marxism and dialectical materialism during my college days, which attracted me to political activities. MARXISM and HOMEOPATHY became two essential parts of my intellectual and practical life, which still continues so. Even though I joined DHMS course in a karnataka homeopathic college, I could not continue it due to my intense involvement in revolutionary political activities that resulted in jail life and a lot of criminal cases. Once that phase was over, I took a diploma in veterinary science and became a livestock inspector in animal husbandry department under govt of kerala. I have been continuing my study and practice of homeopathy all through these years. Since CCH act came into force only in 1976, and it contained provisions allowing existing practitioners to continue, my homeopathic practice went smoothly in parallel with my government job. In 1987, co-operating with some local homeopaths and social activists, I started Kannur District Homeopathic Hospital Sociey, which established a chain of hospitals and homeopathic clinics in different parts of Kannur district. After a few years I had to leave the society for some political reasons, and I established a 100 bedded well equipped homeopathic hospital in Taliparamba, employing a number of prominent homeopaths. That was ended up as a financial disaster for me due to many reasons, including my lack of skills as a money manager, and I was compelled to close down my dream project with in a short period. I lost huge money I invested, lost my reputation, and it pulled me into a debt trap. I learned a lot of valuabl lessons from this failure- about life, human psychology, relationships, and above all, about myself. I realized failure is the greatest teacher, if you are prepared learn from it. I learned how will power and determination to win will help us come back into life as a phoenix from our own ashes. I learned, one does not fail unless he stops fighting and accepts failure. My failure and the hardships that followed has moulded my personality in such a way that I can now withstand any disaster and fight back. I tell you, you will not know what life really is, unless you miserably fail at least once in your life. By this time, I left my government job also, and settled as a full time homeopathic practitioner. By this practice, I could repair my earlier financial losses, and establish well in life. It was during this period that I felt the need of developing a simple and user-friendly homeopathic software, that resulted in the evolution of SIMILIMUM, which was later upgraded into SIMILIMUM ULTRA. Similimum Ultra was well accepted by the profession, and it collected good revenues which continues even today. I stopped my practice a few years back , and concentrated in the study and research activities to evolve scientifically viable explanations to the so-called riddles of homeopathy. This unrelenting study resulted in MIT or Molecular Imprints Therapeutics, which provides a scientific and rational explanation for homeopathy. I started a homeopathic discussion group on facebook called HOMEOPATHY FOR TOTAL CURE, which has more than 35000 homeopaths as members. By this work on facebook, I could establish close relationship with many homeopaths around the world. It goes on. I could successfully convert facebook as my office and work place, from where I propagate my MIT ideas, co-ordinate my works for homeopathic community, and sell my Similimum Ultra Software. My years of hardwork in search of HOW HOMEOPATHY WORKS ultimately resulted in the publication of a book titled REDEFINING HOMEOPATHY (3000 pages, 3 volumes, hard bound, Rs 6000), in which I have compiled my articles regarding my scientific explanations of basic principles of homeopathy. These ideas are called MIT or MOLECULAR IMPRINTS THERAPEUTICS. MIT is now included in the syllabus of MD (HOM) course of prestigious DY PATIL DEEMED UNIVERSITY, PUNE, INDIA. Research department of SARADA KRISHNA HOMEOPATHIC COLLEGE, Kulashekharam, Tamilnadu, India, the only NAC accredited homeopathy college in India, has recently taken up certain reserch projects for proving the scientific explanations proposed by MIT. Based on MIT perspective of homeopathy, I had developed an MIT PROTOCOL for scientific homeopathy, and initiated a project for establishing a chain of MIT NETWORK CLINICS all over India, where MIT PROTOCOL will be practiced. More over, I have developed a whole range of 351 MIT FORMULATIONS, which are disease-specific combinations of post-avogadro diluted homeopathy drugs. NOW I AM IN 71st YEAR OF MY LIFE, AND STILL LOOKING FOR NEW HORRIZONS!
