We should study aphorisms of organon in the light of advanced knowledge provided by modern science.

What Dr Samuel Hahnemann taught us regarding “similarity of symptoms” two centuries ago should be understood in modern advanced scientific knowledge environment as “similarity of chemical molecules” that “compete” each other for binding to “similar” biological targets, that lead to “similar” molecular inhibitions or similar “displacements” and “similar” deviations in biochemical pathways, that are naturally expressed through “similar symptoms”.

Once you understand the real meaning and relevance of above explanation provided by MIT, you can realise how much scientific is “Similia Similibus Curentur” and HOMEOPATHY!


“This Spirit like Power to alter mans state of health which lie hidden in the inner of medicines can in itself never be discovered by us by a mere effort of reason , it is only by experience of the phenomena it displays when acting on the state of health of man that we can become clearly Cognizant of it._”


According to MIT view, it is not any “spirit like power”. The capacity of a medicinal substance to produce biological effects in living bodies lies in the structure and conformations of individual chemical molecules contained in it, by which they bind to various molecular targets inside the body and produce biomolecular inhibitions and cascading deviations in associated biochemical pathways, which are expressed through diverse trains of mental and physical symptoms.


“How as it is deniable that the curative principle in medicines is not in itself perceptible , and as in pure experiments with medicines conducted by the mOst accurate observers, nothing can be observed that can constitute them medicines or remedies except that power of causing distinct alterations in the state of health of the human body, and particularly in that of healthy individual, and of exciting in him various definite morbid symptoms so it follows that when medicines act as remedies , they can only bring their curative property into play by means of this their power of altering mans state of health by the production of peculiar Symptoms and that therefore , We have only to rely on the Morbid phenomena which the medicines produces in the healthy body as the sole possible revelation of their in-dwelling curative power in order to learn what disease-producing power, and at the same time what disease-curing power, each individual medicines possess”.


As per MIT VIEW based on modern scientific knowledge, therapeutic properties of a substance is determined by the chemical and conformations of individual constituent molecules contained in that particular substance. When applied on healthy individuals for drug proving, these chemical molecules bind to various biological molecules and produce molecular inhibitions in related biochemical pathways, which are expressed through diverse groups of mental and physical symptoms. When drug symptoms and disease symptoms are similar, it means the drug substance as well as disease substance contain similar chemical molecules with similar functional groups, by which they can compete each other to bind to similar molecular targets. It is this competitive relationship with disease substance that produce a therapeutic effect when drug substance is used as a medicinal agent in a disease condition. This is the biological mechanism of cure involved in similia Simmilibus Curentur

“But as nothing is to be observed in disease that must be removed in order to change them into health besides the totaity of their signs and Symptoms, and likewise medicines can show nothing curative besides their tendency to produce morbid symptoms in healthy persons and to remove them in diseased persons , it follows, on the one hand, that medicines only become remedies and capable of annihilating disease, because the medicinal substances, by exciting certain artificial mOrbid state, removes and abrogates the symptoms alredy present, to wit the natural mOrbid state we Wish to Cure. On the Other hand, it follows that for the totality of the Symptoms of the disease to be cured, that Medicine must be sought  which (according as experience shall prove whether the mOrbid Symptoms are mOst readily , certainly and permenently removed and changed into helath by similar or opposite medicinal symptoms ) proved to have the greatest tendency to produce similar or opposite symptoms.”

This aphorism contains FOUR important statements.

Statement 1 in aphorism 22:

“Nothing is to be observed in disease that must be removed in order to change them into health besides the totality of their signs and symptoms”.


In modern scientific perspective, hahnemann’s phrase  “totality of signs and symptoms” includes not only the “physical and mental symptoms” that we learn from our drug provings and read in our materia medica books, but a wider  whole of SUBJECTIVE and OBJECTIVE symptoms expressed by the patient. All the laboratory reports regarding pathophysiological biochemical changes  in the patient, all the radiological and endoscopic investigations, and every information collected by the physician with the help of advanced technological extensions of his sense organs belong to the class of OBJECTIVE symptoms. As such, what Hahnemann said in the statement quoted above is scientifically true and relevant even today.

Statement 2 in aphorism 22:

“Medicines can show nothing curative besides their tendecy to produce morbid symptoms in healthy persions and to remove them in diseased persons.”


Actually, “morbid symptoms in healthy persions” produced by a drug substance represent the biomolecular inhibitions produced in various biochemical pathways by the individual chemical molecules contained in the particular drug substance. Since disease-causing and disease-curing properties of drug substance is determined by the chemical properties of those constituent molecules. If the symptoms produced by a drug substance is SIMILAR to the symptoms expressed in a particular disease condition, it means the drug molecules and disease-causing molecules have a COMPETITIVE relationship, which could be ustilzed for its therapeutic application as per the homeopathic law of SIMILIA SIMILIBUS CURENTUR.

Statement 3 in aphorism 22:

“Medicines become remedies and capable of annihilating disease, only because the medicinal substances, by exciting certain artificial morbid state, removes and abrogates the symptoms already present, to wit the natural morbid state we wish to cure.”


“Medicines become remedies and capable of annihilating disease” only because the chemical molecules contained in it can compete with the disease-causing molecules having SIMILAR functional groups in binding to SIMILAR biological target molecules, which could be identified by comparing the drug symptoms and the symptoms of “natural morbid state we wish to cure.”

Statement 4 in aphorism 22:

“For the totality of the symptoms of the disease to be cured, that medicine must be sought  which is proved to have the greatest tendency to produce similar or opposite symptoms.”


For the totality of the symptoms of the disease to be cured, that medicine must be sought  which is proved to have the greatest tendency to produce symptoms SIMILAR to the symptoms of disease we are dealing with, which means our drug substance contains some chemical molecules that are having a COMPETITIVE relationship with the disease-causing molecules in binding to similar biomolecular targets.

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!
