law of cures

Homeopathy
A guiding principle of homeopathy, delineated by Constantine Hering, which states that the cure proceeds from above downward, from within outward, from the most important organs to the least important organs and in the reverse order of appearance of symptoms; for example, the primary symptom may shift from a stomach ache to a skin rash, which indicates the evolution towards a cure. Often in the course of a homeopathic treatment, the patient may suffer a “healing crisis”.
