Prescribing on the basis of Causations


Dr. Hahnemann was of the view that there were two kinds of diseases: one acute diseases and other chronic diseases. Acute diseases depends on the vigorous nature of the vital dynamics of the sick individual. Chronic diseases depends on the morbid nature of the patients on account of the impotence of the vital dynamics and becomes vitiated by exogenous or endogenous miasms.

During proving of homoeopathic remedies Dr. Hahnemann noticed that some drugs showed symptoms belonging to causations, characteristic and constitutional nature of the sick individual. For example, Colocynthis and Nux Vomica have symptoms pertaining to the effects of anger; Arnica, Bellis, Ruta & Symphytum have symptoms pertaining to trauma; Natrum Sulph & Aranea D have symptoms pertaining to the effects of living in damp environment; Aconite & Opium have symptoms pertaining to the effects of fear etc.

According to Dr. Hahnemann there are two type of causations.

  1. Acute Causes which may be due to malefic emotional influences, allergic influences, epidemic, endemic, traumatic, toxic and other acute type of influences.
  2. Chronic Causations which are due to drug miasms, uncured acute miasms, suppressions and chronic miasms of Psora, Sychosis and Syphilis. 

Causation always play a very important role in the selection of remedy. Here are few examples to show the prescription based on causations:
