Personalities in remedies are wrong!

If you prescribe on the basis of a ‘constitutional’ drug picture, as initiated by Kent and specialised by the Vithoulkas school.  then you will not be prescribing for the diseased state that the patient is exhibiting…

 

“The homoeopathic employment of this, as of all other medicines , is most suitable when not only the corporeal affections of the medicine correspond in similarity to the corporeal symptoms of the disease, but also when the mental and emotional alterations peculiar to the drug encounter similar states in the disease to be cured, or at least in the temperament of the subject of treatment.”
