Start > Resource centre > Articles > Homeopathy What is it? Part 3

In consequence of this attitude of the homeopathic physician, he not only tries to make a physical diagnosis of the patient, just as does his allopathic colleague, but realises that this is not sufficient for the purpose of treatment. He must diagnose the patient as a whole. He therefore goes on to find out what sort of a man he is dealing with. Is he happier in hot or cold weather? Does he fear thunder? Does he prefer to be alone or in company? When ill, does he want to be made a fuss of or to be left severely alone? It is through such reactions that the patient's personality becomes a guide to the homeopathic remedy. If these reactions have been altered in any way through the patient's illness, they are particularly valuable as pointers to remedies.

This is so because in the first place, certain drugs have been given to healthy people by researchers, who look particularly for changes produced by these drugs, not only on the physical body of the prover, as the healthy person taking the drug is called, but also on his mental, emotional and climatic reactions. These indications are of great value, especially in the treatment of chronic complaints.
