‘Do pathogenetic trials produce consistent and recognisable symptom pictures?
Results from a Pilot Pathogenetic Trial Study‘
Pathogenetic trials (provings) are the foundation of homeopathic treatment as they provide the set of symptoms characteristic of a particular homeopathic medicine (commonly referred to as a remedy picture). Homeopaths choose homeopathic medicines by comparing these remedy pictures with the symptoms the patient is presenting. The ability of a homeopathic practitioner to identify a remedy suitable for the patient based on these remedy pictures, underpins the successful clinical practice of homeopathy.
