Herings's Law of Cure

Hering's law of cure has been verified by not only homeopaths but also ayurveds, naturopaths and energy healers. This suggests that the body is subject to certain laws that governs its working as a whole.

Herings law, in a nutshell, stipulates that there is a DIRECTION OF CURE. With this knowledge the physician can be sure whether he has really benefited the patient or only made him worse despite a reduction in the severity of symptoms. Says Hering, the cure proceeds:

A symptom or a set of symptoms may slide down. What appeared on the head may go to the chest,then the abdomen, then the legs before going away entirely.

The problem may leave the innards of the body and surface on the skin, nails, hair, and/or mucous membranes before disappearing. If the patient has an ulcer in the abdomen, during the treatment if the patient suddenly develops a profuse discharge of any of the mucous membranes, or develops a scary rash, then the direction is towards a cure. In such a case the subsequent acute manifestation should not be disturbed and must be allowed to take its course.

The present symptom may be replaced by what has taken place prior to it, moving backwards the way it developed. For example a kidney failure patient may go back to his cardiac manifestation, then the severe abdominal complaints he may have suffered earlier may resurface. Then the eczema or psoriasis that was suppressed earlier may recur which when treated holistically, or by continuing the present method of treatment willcure the patient.

As stated above the affected kidney may heal with the disease going to the heart, then the liver, the abdomen, then the skin before affecting a cure. A mental symptom like anxiety may be relieved as the disease takes hold of a physical organ and then moving on from the more vital organ to the less important one.

Merely going to a practitioner who uses holistic remedies will not result in a cure as stated above. The practitioner must be aware of the DYNAMICS OF HEALING and must be a master in both the philosophy, art and the techniques of his science of healing. Both philosophy and practice must travel hand in hand. During the course of treatment the experienced physician enters the realm of the patient and both get transported to a plane which facilitates the
healing. The intuition of the doctor and the expression of the patient as to what ails him are the fundamentals without which cure is an illusion.

Disease per se may not be bad in a healthy person. The law of cure is not peculiar to the physicians efforts but is characteristic of the body's function. An accumulation of waste in the body may find relief from a sudden diarhhoea or a profuse cold. At such times rest and a simple diet will relieve the symptoms and the patient emerges feeling better than ever, cured of ennui. An emergency may thus be averted by the action of the body alone.What ought to be treated and what may grow worse from an external intrusion is a decision that only a knowledgeable and sincere physician well versed in the art of healing can make.

Detoxification is the primary aim of the body. Detoxification is the primary aim of the health conscious individual and the trained physician. The aim is the same, only the practices resorted to may be different. The body-mind energy complex is the best healer and its collective role should be a subject of close scrutiny for every physician.
