Hi all — my doctor just prescribed me a homeopathic remedy potentized from a drug I recently took that I had a bad reaction to. They explained that it’s a fairly common practice among some homeopaths to attempt to reverse symptoms of a bad drug reaction. I haven’t been able to find anyone talking about this practice with a search on google. Is this a legitimate approach? Thanks for any guidance.

It’s relatively common.  It’s called isopathy so you don’t hear about it as such when reading about homeopathy.  Many years ago, rats were given Arsenicum from which rat poisoning is made.  Half were then given Ars 10m.  Those who got the Ars 10M peed out the arsenic and survived and those who where given a placebo died.  This practice is used when there is an allergic reaction to a drug or if a person becomes otherwise ill from a drug.

Thanks! I appreciate the response, and “isopathy” is a helpful term to find more information with. I was concerned when I couldn’t find anything on it 🙂

@ S. Reischman

Does this mean that when a person (in this case my husband) has to take ASS100 (aspirin) on a daily basis (MI, stent) he may (or should) be administered potentized ASS from time to time even though there have not been negative effects so far? If yes, which  potency would you (or an “isopath”) recommend? His “constitutional” is lycopodium, which he takes – rarely, as needed – in 200 potency.

Thanks in advance!

No.  It means if after taking a good case you cannot find a remedy that covers it, AFTER he has a negative reaction give a dose of the high potency of whatever caused the problem.
