Autopathic Detoxication – Part II

Written by Jiri Cehovsky

Part 2 of Jiri Cehovsky’s article on the use of potentized saliva in healing. Numerous cured cases are described. Part 1 is found here http://hpathy.com/homeopathy-papers/autopathic-detoxication/

The continuing practice of using the patient’s own sterilised saliva made into potency, had clearly shown this: When the substance is sterilised through boiling ( https://hpathy.com/homeopathy-papers/autopathic-detoxication/2/) and no other extraneous information has been added, as is the case when we sterilise with alcohol, the results appear to be more dependable (I’m tempted here to say directly “dependable”). Sterilisation with alcohol had sometimes brought results, at other times it had not. Here is one of such cases:

The patient is a woman, thirty years old.  She has had severe acne for 15 years, which started in puberty. A dermatologist recently advised her to take a hormonal contraceptive medication, but she told him that she has been taking such medication for years, without any results. Otherwise she is healthy, except for an occasional backache. She used to suffer from Chlamydia, which prevented her from becoming pregnant. However, presently she is expecting a child.

My advice: Mix the morning saliva with vodka and make it into potency with 1 litre of water in the autopathic bottle. Apply once a day for 6 days, and after this, dilute with three litres once a week.

Follow up in two months: The acne got worse, particularly on her back and the low-neck area.


Recommendation: Use autopathy once a fortnight, 6 litres, made from breath.


Two months later she emailed me, being somewhat desperate, as the acne was spreading onto her arms, while getting worse overall. She had not lost confidence in the treatment I had recommended only because her good friend was treated successfully.


Recommendation: Once a week autopathy with boiled saliva diluted with 6 litres of water.


After a month she reports: Acne in the face has improved dramatically, it still persists in the lower parts (the therapy outcome follows Hering’s law: from up to down, i.e. correctly).


Recommendation: AUTO 9l BOIL, once only. After that, the acne got worse at first, but during the month that followed, it disappeared even on the other parts of the body. On her last visit she stated that the acne was much better even a couple of days earlier, but now that she is menstruating, it is again making itself apparent, though it is still much better than at any time since puberty. I must add that acne might not be only a simple superficial skin disease, but it could be symptomatic of a much deeper inner disorder, and it could often be incurable by ordinary allopathic as well as by homeopathic treatment.

Case : Young woman who walked away from an unhappy, discordant relationship, and who suffers from loneliness. She is also being isolated from other people by her unfortunate tendency to become abusive when feeling threatened in any way. There are also traumatic experiences from her childhood, when she lived with her schizophrenic, dictatorial mother in a mouldy subterranean flat. During the first and the second year of treatment by autopathy there were some interesting improvements. For instance, she found a better job, the conflicts with those near her have resolved, and there was an overall feeling of well-being. However, when we switched to a homeopathic remedy, she experienced backaches, pursiness (short of breath), which she used to suffer from before, and an even bigger feeling of isolation. Added to that was tiredness with sleeplessness. After such bad news in February 2010 I recommended AUTO 6l saliva, BOIL, once a week.

After two months, she reported: She took the preparation only twice. After the first dose she felt rather bad, stressed out, nervous and had a long menstruation. She made the preparation one more time, and something happened that she had never experienced before: she fell in love and began a satisfactory relationship. Immediately, all the physical and psychological problems were gone. Even the menstruation had returned to normal.

Case: A young lady suffering from alopecia, a severe hair loss, even baldness; I have described this case before in the book Get Well With Autopathy. After the autopathic treatment with saliva, everything returned to normal. Nevertheless, a year or so later, the problem with the hair loss had returned. Using autopathy  the potency was gradually increased – with no result. The hair loss continued and she had hardly any left, though the other problems, particularly the strong eczema she used to have before autopathy, were no longer there. In April 2010 she came back to me.

Recommendation: AUTO 6l saliva BOIL, once a week.


Follow up in two months: A marked improvement. No more hair loss and the hair is steadily growing back.

Some authors concerning themselves with yeasts insist that loss of hair and dandruff are mainly the work of Candida. Autopathy doesn’t strenuously search for causes. We know that there is ever only one cause: impairment of the flow of vital force, prana, or Chi (various cultures have different names for this subtle vital principle). In this case, however, it was caused by the subtle vibrations of the parasites.

Case: A mother of two children. Though essentially healthy, secure and with  n a good environment and relationships, she suffers from negative thoughts, which she cannot precisely define, but which bother her greatly. Two years ago she had read a book about the power of negative thoughts and it had terrified her. She has had craniosacral therapy sessions and that made things worse. Negative thoughts came even more often. Family relationships also aggravated the situation. At first she used autopathy from fresh saliva in lower potencies on her own, and it always helped for a time, but the problem would return.

As I had successfully treated her two children for eczema, she asked for my help. My interpretation was that she had found herself in strange spiritual crises: she feels bad and doesn’t know why; she has negative thoughts and doesn’t know why. She is scarred, not knowing why. For instance, she keeps thinking about her child falling into their swimming pool, but it is locked up. There is no logic in that at all. Her finer vibrations must obviously be disturbed at a very deep level, where things cannot be explained through ordinary logic.


Recommended: 25 l from breath, potency 1M

(http://www.autopathy.info/breath-heals.htm) , which for a month brought a partial relief  from the “level of fear” at which she was previously always experiencing.  However, the negative feelings had returned. She felt an urgent need for activity, unrest and fear, as before.  There were also discharges and craving for sweet food – clear symptoms of Candida, which she had before.


Further recommendation: AUTO 25 l BOIL once only.


A month later she reported: The second day after application a crises came, which had intensified gradually until the 5th day. Her head was spinning, she felt like vomiting, and she cried. She stayed in bed for one day. After that all the psychological and physical problems had disappeared quickly. They have not returned even after three months.

Case: A man over sixty, who two years ago had a cancerous tumour in the large intestine surgically removed. A month ago another tumour was found in his pelvis, 25 x 50 mm. At the same time, two metastatic tumours were found in the lungs, 26 x 30 mm on the right and 24 x 25 mm pressing on the pleura. Lately he coughs a little, otherwise he feels quite fine…except for the fear. It is suspected that the cancer might enter the bones. His father died of cancer; his mother at 96 is perfectly healthy.

Recommendation: Autopathic preparation in autopathic bottle from saliva with alcohol and one litre of water every morning. In the evening changing to two remedies: Lycopodium 30 (specific remedy for the lung cancer) and the following evening Carcinosinum 30. Further recommendation: increase the pH of the saliva through food and bicarbonate (see the Chapter: Short Information on Basic Acid Balance), while drinking at least 3 litres of water. Avoid sugar and sweet food – sugar is the main source of sustenance for the cancer cells, which according to Dr. Simoncini have their base in the yeast activity. The first visit was at the end of November and another followed 3 weeks later.


The client refers: The fear he was experiencing has subsided and he feels more relaxed and does not think about cancer. He had a CT of the lungs done a couple of days previously, and the smaller tumour has grown by one millimetre. Incursion of the cancer into the skeleton was ruled out. He is following all my recommendations and drinks water with dissolved bicarbonate, half a small spoonful, 4 x daily. About 5 days after commencing the treatment he had a strongly pruritic discharge after the bowel movement, which has disappeared afterwards. The coughing has stopped. Erroneously he was taking the homeopathic remedies two hours after the autopathy, rather than in the evening. He had a blood test, which showed that thrombocytes, leukocytes, glycemia, and sedimentation  are over the limit. I recommended that he continue the same treatment as agreed on before, except taking alternately the two homeopathic remedies in the evening.

The next follow up was in a month. He is now on chemotherapy. It causes lack of appetite, sometimes feeling like vomiting, but overall his reaction to the chemotherapy is “better than the doctors frightened me with”. After bronchoscopy, he coughed out blood for a week, but not any longer and breathing is fine.

Recommendation: Use autopathy from ½ litre of water with boiled saliva, every morning. In the evening take alternately the same two homeopathic remedies, one pill each time.

The next follow up again in a month. He does everything as I recommended. Continues having the chemotherapy, once a fortnight. He is now halfway through the procedure and is to go for the fourth treatment. After chemo for three days, he is slightly indisposed. His appetite is good and he is not feeling bad.

Recommendation: Increase the dilution in autopathy with boiled saliva to 1 litre every morning. Cough before spitting into the autopathic bottle. Otherwise, continue as before.

Ffollow up after a further six weeks: The chemotherapy a fortnight ago had really “knocked him down”, mentally and physically. It was the sixth out of the planned twelve. For five days he could not eat or drink. He decided not to continue with the chemotherapy and asked for a CT check-up. He came to me the same day the doctors gave him the printed and signed finding on examination, bearing a stamp. It stated in the conclusion: “A locus of hypermetabolism of glucoses or structural lesion that would unambiguously testify to presence of viable neoplasia at this time were not found.” In other words, not even a shadow of the tumours that existed in that place was found. The blood test also showed that all the blood parameters that were previously high, were now within the norm (which is not common while chemotherapy is in progress): thrombocytes, leukocytes, glycemia, and sedimentation, in addition to that the markers of cancers were well within the norm. Therefore, my client was absolutely healthy. The doctors are hesitant, not understanding what might be happening, suggesting that the original diagnosis may not have been correct. Despite that they recommended continuation of chemotherapy, which my client refused. He too is very surprised.

My recommendation: Continue with autopathy and homeopathic remedies as before.

Follow up six weeks later: He feels fine and has no problems.


Recommendation: Stop taking the homeopathic remedies and continue only with autopathy with two litres boiled, every second day.


Another follow up six weeks later: He laughs and his mood is excellent. He had travelled through France, and sometimes overdid it a bit as far as calvados (brandy) is concerned. After discontinuing the chemotherapy he did not return to the oncology office and has no intentions of going there.


Recommendation: AUTO 3l BOIL, once a week. I think that Dr. Simoncini would be happy, while the yeasts are trying to find their luck elsewhere.


Case:  Eczema- Some time ago I successfully treated eczema in a young mother, who had it for her entire life. It had covered her body completely from feet to head. Now she has a son, who has inherited the disease. The mother herself had treated him with autopathy from saliva, after which the eczema got better, subsiding from head downwards. However, it kept returning. Even after twelve litre potencies from saliva that I had recommended after they visited me, it developed along similar lines.


Recommendation: At the beginning of the year I recommended 6 l with boiled saliva, once a week. The autopathic bottle that was used for the twelve litre potencies had to be changed for a new one, even though the 3 months period of use had not been reached. When you go down by so many litres it is necessary, as the glass would retain the higher potency. A follow up after six weeks proved that soon after the first application his face had cleared, the madescent spots had begun to heal and the scabs dried out. He does not wake up at night as often than he used to.

Recommendation: Continue with autopathy in the same way. In another six weeks the mother reported that the positive changes from the last visit have increased so much that there is hardly any eczema left. However, in the last few days something semolina-like has been appearing on hands and body, a rough skin but not eczema.

Recommendation: AUTO 9 l BOIL once only.


Three months later, an e-mail came from the mother, reporting that three days after applying the nine litre potency of boiled saliva, the skin problems had disappeared. Since then he’s had no further problems.


Case: This lovely young woman has had multiple sclerosis for the past 4 years. She is taking corticoids, suffers from tiredness, is depressed, sad and cries during the examination. A couple of months ago she had high fevers and she has been feeling tired ever since. She recently had problems with sinuses and took antibiotics.

My recommendation: AUTO 4.5 l boiled saliva (cough strongly before spitting), once a week.

Follow up in a month: On the day of the autopathic treatment she felt good, had more energy and positive thoughts. She is not taking the corticoids any more. There is substantially more energy, particularly lately; she also has less need for sleeping.

Recommendation: AUTO 6 l BOIL once a week.


Follow up in 2 months, via e-mail: The neurological problems she has suffered from continuously, tingling and slackness in the left hand, are improving. She still has more energy. Instead of feeling sad she is, particularly early in the morning, enraged. Rage at the beginning of treatment I always see as a manifestation of awakening vitality that is not yet under control. She takes no corticoids.

I recommended stopping the autopathic treatment until the control that was to follow in 14 days. She feels good physically and has no further problems, she is narky, particularly at work, and occasionally she blows her top. Previously she tended to retreat and bottle things up.

Recommendation: AUTO 9l BOIL, once only.


The next follow up was after full three months, during which she was without any problems and taking no medication. Ten days ago however, she had a shock, when she found out that her sister was also diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The tingling sensation in hand and loss of feeling in fingers had returned.

Recommendation: AUTO 9l BOIL, once only until the next follow up.

The potency of boiled saliva can be determined the same way as with the pure saliva, as described in the chapter Specifying the degree of dilution, in my book Autopathy: A Homeopathic Journey to Harmony (http://www.autopathy.info/book.htm)

Potencies of between one and two liters (in the autopathic bottle, one liter makes 40 C), in cases of serious and threatening diseases and conditions, we could apply daily, or even twice a day. The dilution of 4.5 – 6 liters is usually applied once a week, sometimes more often when there are distinctive problems. The potencies of 6 liters (240 C) and above could also be applied singly, while monitoring the development and waiting as long as there are continuing improvements. If positive development comes to a halt, or things do turn back and there is a relapse, we use the same potency or higher. Some of my students report that in some of their cases there have been significant improvements only after the dilution by twenty liters (app. 1M) or even more of boiled saliva. Such potencies then worked in the long term even after a single dose, but only when they had been reached gradually. With some people, however, the potencies of 1 – 6 liters are high enough.

Potencies prepared from boiled saliva have proved useful even in cases of acute illnesses, such as high fever in children, when I usually recommend the potency of six liters applied repeatedly (in intervals of several hours) or by a single application.

  • I came to conclusion, that before I would detox any nosodes, best to prepare patient for detox using METAB (easy to google) which corrects metabolism, DNA and RNA, also opens the Kreb’s cycle … for at least one week before detox, and continue for a while.
    In acute case, if person needs to use nosode urgently, then best is to start METAB as well as nosode, and support the detox with combination of detox remedies (Nature Sunshine Products have a very good remedy).
    This way, you may cut down “healing crisis” to minimum.
    Most likely none at all.

  • DEAR DR,




    thanks and regards
    dr shekhar

    • Dear Dr. Gupta,

      1) During the time it was proved that all doses should be sterilized until parasites disappear from the organism. Than potentised breath can be used. Read the book for more information please.

      2) Most remedies over 1M potency during last 120 years were not prepared by succussion. Dr. Skiner and Dr. Fincke in 19th century in USA as well as the pharmacy Boericke and Tafel till the end of 20th century and many other pharmacies prepared so called flux potencies. They were prepared completely different way. My method is based on Fickle´s system. In my book you find more information.

      3) Some doctors don´t recommend it but others do. It depends on the potency. I do not recommend to repeat often potencies higher than 1M. It also depends on the overall state of the organism. More information in my book.

      4) I also found in old Indian tradition the vessel called kundika which was used for spiritual and healing purposes from the time immemorial. It exists even Kundika upanishad, speaking about its use. Autopathic bottle is very similar to it. And it is used for a similar purpose. More information in my book. What is in 200 pages cannot be said in one short article. Thanks for resonance with my ideas.

  • I wish to inform, rather advise the beginners and students not to try autopathy on their patients or not to study the subject at all until they have fairly mastered the technique of prescribing (homeopathically ). Otherwise there is the risk of getting thoroughly confused & demoralised.
    The logic and rationale behind the system of healing is not clear, but definitely not homeopathic. If two bad eggs can be sold with two good ones (for half the price of course) that doesn’t mean that bad eggs are saleable. Calling autopathy a branch of homoeopathy is highly objectionable. If some homoeopaths frequently encounter cases for which no homoeopathic remedy is suitable, its the failure on the part of those homeopaths not that of homeopathy as such. Hahnemann has rightly said that, “a prescription does not fly to our mouths like roasted turkey on a platter, we( the homeopaths) have to work hard for that”. Further “If anything can cause something it can cure in small doses” is not the meaning of “similia similibus curantur” as some homeopaths believe. Can the effects of poisoning by phosphorus be antidoted by a high potency of phosphorus ? It is a universal law with no ordinary exceptions, and any exceptions are another phenomena explained by Hahnemann elsewhere, like Natr mur high antidoting the crude salt and lower potencies for well understood reasons.

    • Dear Dr Venkatesh,

      homeopathy is still developing. Hahnemann asked that the homeopath must be an „unprejudiced observer“. You will find the answer in Hahnemann´s notice to § 56 ( about isopathy) of Organon, the 6th edition. Hahnemann himself prepared the remedy he called AUTO from psoric vesicle to treat the man who provided the material. Latter he called it Psorinum and was giving it also to other patients. Read my book for more information please.

      • Dear Jiri,
        In the footnote to aphorism 56 Hahnemann has outright condemned autopathy and not endorsed it. his words “nothing but disaster and aggravation will result from such an employment…”
        But that isn’t the only reason which makes the system look phony, but your explanation of the phenomena has too many inconsistencies. AS per the explanation parasites are the cause of the infection and blocks to the action of remedies, and its highly unlike the homeopathic view that the causa morbi is dynamic, invisible or imperceptible to the senses.Thus the explanation is allapathic, modern medicine which believes the causa morbi is an object the removal of which should cure the disease. but your method of potentisation is homeopathic.when you advise to apply the nosode to the ‘forehead chakra’ it highly savors of occult or spiritual healing !
        Still if there is such a phenomena as this , you should report all the cases, failures with their causes along with the successes.(But the cases reported seem to be selected.) Then only the readers will be able to assess the cures and whether they are only co-incidents or some such thing.Otherwise every intellectual reader who questions such a system have to be termed “prejudiced”.

  • “Read my book for more information please.”

    I’m sure that the Korsakoff Method could replace a “autopathy bottle” and that experimentation should deliver faster insight than a reading a book.

  • I used autopathy in a case of candida and it worked where all other remedies had failed. The autopathy bottle with its vortex method of potentization saves much time and effort. You can make a 200c in about 30 seconds.
