Complex homeopathy

[related to Homeopathy]

Combination remedies or Complex Homoeopathy is not a school of Homoeopathy. It is rather an attempt to achieve necessary clinical efficacy in today's polluted world where patients are not simple cases that could be covered by a pathogenic study. Rather, a complex net of toxic, functional and sensory complaints are collected. They are often not related to a disease but instead to an interaction of pathological phenomena and iatrogenic syndromes. The problem is also addressed by classical homeopaths regarding multi-medicated patients which complicate the constitutional picture. It is said that this type of patient often responds better initially to the protocols set out in Complex Homoeopathy and later can progress to a singular remedy once sufficient drainage or detoxification has taken place.
