Constantine Hering, an early pioneer of homeopathy in the US (1800-1880) observed certain principles of healing that many in the homeopathic therapeutic field still support today. These principles are known as Hering’s Law of Cure
The 5 directions of cure Dr. Hering observed were:
Symptoms move from above downwards
From within outwards (centre to periphery)
From the most important organs to lesser important organs
Symptoms resolve in the reverse order that they came: the most recent going away first.
Return of old symptoms – this should be a self limiting return of a symptom and is an important part of the healing process.
