Homeopathic Drainage

Biotherapeutic Drainage is the therapeutic use of homeopathics, botanicals or trace minerals to facilitate the elimination of toxins out of the body. Often the term is shortened to ‘drainage’ for simplicity, or to imply what is needed from a therapeutic perspective: directed detoxification to the whole system or to specific organs or tissues.

Constitution

The notion of “Constitution” represents the core of a person-or the structure of his inner being. In drainage homeopathy (as Guéniot taught it), “constitution” is not a notion that can be diagnosed in daily contact, or through observable behaviors, but rather are traits that only reveal themselves in unusual and unimaginable confrontations with life or…

Diathesis

Diathesis describes a person’s predisposition or tendency. The early homeopaths used another word for this type of classification: miasm.

Hering’s law defines the practical events that occur as a patient moves from a more diseased state to health, whereas the other two explanations are more complete descriptions of…
