In the professional life of every homeopathic physician there comes a turning point. With growing confidence, trust and skill in the homeopathic method the physician closes the door on allopathic thinking. Taking homeopathy to heart, it is a point of no return, an existential turn. Homeopathy then penetrates into other aspects of one’s life beyond the daily clinical practice. The method of healing becomes a way of understanding the world. The similimum is not only the patient’s constitutional prescription but also a metaphor for understanding spouse, children, family and friends. The remedy as type brings to light possibilities of behavior, strengths and weaknesses. The homeopathic appreciation of those around us fosters understanding and tolerance.
