Is it true that prescribing what is called constitutional remedy in a very weak patient may lead to death of the patient?What may be the probable reason for that? What should we do in such cases? If simillimum takes away the energy from the patient, how can a similar help ?
The simillimum must be prescribed in a potency which matches the patient’s vitality and the intensity of the symptoms. When there has been organic damage, and the remedy cannot cure, then it is not wise to give the simillimum. In that case a remedy which is close to the simillimum can still help. Alan V. Schmukler
