Ever since the era of Hahnemann, Homeopathic combinations have remained a source of controversy among the homeopathic community.Let us discus about Homeopathic Combinations in this article.
Definition of Homeopathic Combinations?
Homeopathic combination.can be defined as a medicine preparation containing a mixture of multiple homeopathic medicines.
What usually contains medicines in very low potencies or mother tinctures are Homeopathic Combinations. The medicines which are known to have some physiological action on a disease or an organ are mixed together and marketed as a cure for a given condition usually known as Homeopathic Combinations.
Can we say these combinations as truly Homeopathic?
Certainly Not! The reason behind this is that a medicine does not become 'homeopathic' just because its ingredients are used as homeopathic medicines or because it is potentised. 'Homeopathic' means 'similar'. When a medicine is similar to the whole condition of a person/patient it is called 'homeopathic'. Each medicine produces a variety of symptoms and each medicine affects various systems. When we look for a similar medicine, it should cover as many symptoms of the 'person' as is possible. The combinations are still not “homeopathic” to the patient because these combinations just focus on one or two common symptoms (usually of the disease), so they may be similar only to one or two symtoms of the 'disease'.
On the contrary these combinations often rely on material quantity and physiological quality of the drugs to offer palliation. Such situation is very similar to the conventional or allopathic medicine. Homeopathy is best known to work with highly potentised medicines and sub-physiological doses. Thus even the way most homeopathic combinations work, is also not homeopathic.
Homeopathy is defined as a medical system based on some sound and fixed principles. These Homeopathic principles include the use of one single medicine at a given time, use of least possible quantity of medicine (in terms of quantity and repetition), no use of combinations, no use of external ointments for chronic conditions, use of the medicine which covers not only the common symptoms of the disease but also the uncommon symptoms which reflect the patients individuality.
Thus technically speaking the medicines which are sold as 'homeopathic combinations' are not at homeopathic but since they contain medicines which are also used in homeopathy, may use very low potencies of homeopathic medicines, are prepared and sold by homeopathic companies - they are usually called 'homeopathic' and help work as homeopathic combinations.
