Health & Disease defined 06/08/09 Concept of Disease in Homeopathy Health Disease “ A condition in which the organism is in complete accord with its surroundings, with that exquisite coordination of different functions which characterizes the living animal or plant” - William Boyd “ is a change in that condition (health) as a result of which the organism suffers from discomfort (dis-ease).” -William Boyd

“ Sickness” But we must not confuse disease with illness. Disease suggests an entity such as typhoid fever, with a recognized cause, structural changes, and clinical manifestations. “ When we say a person is ill we merely mean that he suffers from a physiological disturbance characterized by symptoms (headache, pain in chest, shortness of breath) or physical signs ( pallor, rapid pulse, swollen feet)” - William Boyd 06/08/09 Concept of Disease in Homeopathy

Ortega’s Concept 06/08/09 Concept of Disease in Homeopathy

Summary In Homoeopathy, ultra-high-dilutions of medicinal substances are used to cure a disease on the basis of the "Law of Similia". The disease in Homoeopathy is predisposition to fall sick (a miasm), which is always present in a living organism, in different ways. These miasms are essentially of three types, that bring about Functional changes (Psora), Structural changes (Sycosis), and Destructive changes (Syphilis). These miasmatic tendencies are seen not only in the sick, but also in the healthy person and all the drug substances used as medicines.
