Principles of Homeopathy

Extract from the book Homeopathic Medicine at Home by Masimund B. Panos MD and Jane Heimlich. A Corgi Book by Transworld Publishers Ltd. 1980

The Law of Similars

The term homeopathy (sometimes spelled homoeopathy) comes from the Greek homoios ("similar") and pathos ("suffering" or "sickness"). The fundamental law upon which homeopathy is based is the law of similars, or "Like is cured by like". The law of similars states that a remedy can cure a disease if it produces in a healthy person symptoms similar to those of the disease.

Sing a Song of Symptoms

The following two poems were written to help homeopaths remember the laws of homeopathy and the symptoms of lead poisoning in particular.

From '"A song of Symptoms" by Patersimilias, B Jain Publishers Pty Ltd, New Delhi. India. Reprinted edition l99l. Originally published in 1974 by Health Science Press. N. Devon, UK. (Patersimilias is the pseudonym of a medical practitioner and member of the Faculty of Homoeopathy.)

A song of Symptoms

Sing a song of Symptoms
That match the patient's ills,
Find the drug which corresponds
And make it into pills.
When the pills are taken
In proper potency,
Results will prove a triumph
For Homoeopathy.


Paul the plumber isn't chatty
His cerebration isn't quick,
He's thin and pale, his heart is fatty,
And after food he's very sick.
He can't see well his vision's bleary;
He suffers frequently from colic,
His twitching limbs feel weak and weary,
He hardly feels inclined to frolic.
His shooting pains will make him cry out 
Oh! my back" and Oh! my head!"
Surely now's the time to try out
An efficacious dose of Lead.

The Healing Herbs!

Healing with Apples

Modern medical science has found that Johnny Appleseeds' passion for fruit has tremendous value in healing - thanks to its pulp, which is high in pectin, a soluble form of fibre.

Lead Poisoning

European studies suggest apple pectin helps eliminate lead, mercury and other toxic heavy metals from the body. Cleansing the body of these poisons is yet another reason for people who live in polluted cities to enjoy the proverbial apple a day.

Rx for Apples

Eat the whole fresh fruit to enjoy a wide range of healthful benefits. Wash apples with soap and water before eating to eliminate any pesticide residues.

Please tell us your experience of Natural Treatments
or Chelation Therapy

Here at the Community Lead Information Centre, people often enquire about the efficacy of natural treatments for lead poisoning, such as the use of plumbum, i.e. lead itself, in homeopathic treatment.

Chelation therapy is the usual medical treatment for severe childhood lead poisoning, i.e. when the blood lead level is above 55 g/dL (micrograms per decilitre). It would be fascinating to hear from the parent of a chelated child, just how it was for that child.

EDTA chelation therapy for adults, is also used by alternative therapists with medical training, to reduce the ongoing production of free radicals within the body by removing accumulations of metallic catalysts (lead, mercury, cadmium, etc) which accumulate as a person grows older. Free radical pathology is said to be the "underlying process triggering the development of most age- related ailments, including cancer, dementia and arthritis, as well as atherosclerosis". Please write about your experience of any of these therapies, and send it to:
