Hi everyone, I have a big question and I would like to receive different points of view or an explanation for this. I have read "Agriculture of tomorrow" a book from Lili Kolisko, someone who tried to explain Steiner's suggestions by experimentations and who applied the homeopathy to the agriculture while she was testing his theories. The point is that the little things that I have read about homeopathy tell me that it works by “contratia contrariis curantur", in other words by contraries which can be the same that the law of inverse effect of Hahnemann, now if you analyze the work that Kolisko did with the different Steiner's “medicines” used in biodynamic agriculture, she did not get the opposite effect, she had great results and in her book she said that homeopathy can also be used for potentiate effects, which leads me a question: How does homeopathy works? What happens with the law of inverse effect? How do I know when I’m potentiating or acting by inverse effect?
If there’s something wrong, or something you don’t understand let me know, I’m not the best on English.

I get the impression that there is the effort to mix two different medical fields to something which is a hypothetical thing.
Steiner's medicine is anthroposophic medicine. You seem trying to melt it with homeopathy. In anthroposophic medicine, homeopathic laws and philosophy are not involved. The mere use of remedies produced according to homeopathic rules (especially the low potencies of complex remedies frequently used in anthroposophic medicine) does not make the therapy homeopathic. Remedy selection in anthroposophic medicine has a very different approach than in homeopathy.
A suggestion that may guide you to the right direction: read a proper textbook on homeopathy like Dr. Bhatia's book "Lectures On Organon of Medicine". You will get detailed answers to your questions (How does homeopathy works? What happens with the law of inverse effect? How do I know when I’m potentiating or acting by inverse effect?) You also will learn which law applies in homeopathy and why your questions are - may I say so - absurd.
Studying in using proper references will not lead to missguided assumptions. Sad enough that much of inferior literature is on the market leading to conceptions which simply are not existing.
