How Homeopathy Remedies Differs from Isopathic Medicine and Isopathy Nosode

Updated on September 8, 2013

An historic piece of literature written by Dr Kent in the year 1908 all about nosodes. You will enjoy holding this reproduction of the original manuscript. A short story about the publication

The contracts were made, the manuscript was sent to the compositor. Several pages of the first section, Adrenalin, were set up and submitted to the author for style of type, and arrangement, passed on by him as being satisfactory, the compositors were told to go ahead with the work, and then when all this was finished, word came of Dr. Allen's death.

Concerning the character of this book, Nosodes, it may be said that Dr. Allen first, last and all the time, regarded these drugs as homœopathic, and not as isopathic, remedies; that they were to be proved as homœopathic remedies and prescribed according to the totality of the symptoms.

The preliminary remarks, preceding the drugs treated in this book, tell all that we know concerning the source of the provings.

Dr. Allen placed great store by this, his final work, which he, we believe, considered his greatest.

Comparing Homeopathy and Isopathy

Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) and Johann Joseph Wilhelm Lux ( 1773-1849) lived during the same time period. We know that inventions, discoveries and innovations circle the globe as thoughts and ideas come into existence.

Due to world situations, the movement of disease, state of sanitation, and the health care systems these investigations into new ways of healing became popular. The medical political scene was also under scrutiny with the use of massive doses of toxins as curative agents.

Samuel Hahneman began testing substances on himself and fellow colleagues to see the way the physical body and spiritual matter responded. These documentations and recordings became the beginning of 'homeopathy' where discovering how similar substances could initiate a curative response in a sick person.

On the other hand, Jonathan Joseph Wilhelm Lux was investigating not just all substances, whether they be plants, minerals, animals or energy forms like x-rays. Mr Lux specialized in learning about disease matter, such as pus, and other tissue substances directly from the sick person.

Isopathy is the term that describes using the individual's own discharges (urine), bodily fluids (mucus), or disease matter (more specifically nosode) and potentize this substance and take this in the 'minimal dose' as prescribed by Homeopathic Principle.

Whereas, a homeopathic remedy is a "similar" substance and not the "exact" substance. The isopathic remedy may by a lymphocyte, blood cell, tissue sample, or other discharge from a diseased area, or even a bit of saliva.

You can see the similarity between the Isopathic Approach to healing and Vaccinations, which also introduce an allergen or diseased substance such as in the influenza vaccine and MMR which causes a physical response to a foreign body and boosts the immune system to fight this type of invader in the future.

There is a great difference between isopathy and vaccinations.

  • For one, the 'minimal dose' principle is not used in vaccinations.
  • Other differences include the fact that isopathy gives the remedy sublingual application orally and not injected into the muscles or blood.
  • Isopathy only gives the individual's own substances back via this dosage method and not disease matter or bodily tissue from other beings, either human or animal.
  • Isopathy does not standardize the dose as the same or frequency for everyone being equal.
  • Isopathy does not mix many substances or diseased matters together.
  • Isopathy is specifically designed with the individual in mind, not a mass population.
  • Isopathy is very gentle in it's action and has no side effects.
  • Isopathy does not introduce any additives or other chemicals into a complex mixture.
  • Isopathy is a simple direct method.

The nosodes used in homeopathy may be considered a type of isopathy. The nosodes, which are studied as miasmic conditions, also come from diseased matter and given in the very minimal dose. Many homeopaths suggest giving in ultra high potency. The difference between nosode and isopathy is that the nosode remedy does not come from the individual to whom it is given. In this way, it conforms to the 'similar' principle. Thus, it is not 'exactly' from the individual's own tissue or cells, but comes from someone who had a similar illness.

Aphorism 56 Sixth Edition A third mode of employing medicines in diseases has been attempted to be created by means of Isopathy, as it is called - that is to say, a method of curing a given disease by the same contagious principle that produces it. But even granting this could be done, yet, after all, seeing that the virus is given to the patient highly potentized, and consequently, in an altered condition, the cure is effected only by opposing a simillimum to a simillimum.

Dr Luc Explains Isopathy & Vaccination

H1N1 Influenza 2010 - 2011 Seasons

News Headline about Swine Flu 2010 - 2011 | The End of the Swine Flu

By FRANK JORDANS, Associated Press Writer

GENEVA — The World Health Organization Director-General Margaret Chan said the organization’s emergency committee of top flu experts advised her that the pandemic had “largely run its course” and the world is no longer in phase six. WHO will continue to recommend vaccination, even though based upon homeopathic theory, this will lower vital force and lay down another disease layer on the individual. Europe and North America dump unused and expired vaccine stockpiles.

Due to over estimation of pandemic, millions of H1N1 vaccines lay in waste, and many governments ordered hundreds of millions of unused doses and don't know who will pay.

The lessons learned from this exaggeration of danger may change the way WHO and disease prevention prepare and announce upcoming influenza seasons. 

Vaccinations By-Pass The Body's Own Protective Mechanisms

Vaccines were originally based upon the theory of isopathy. However, they have been transmuted into very complex substances. No one knows exactly what they are doing to the individual.

Additional Comment from FaceBook

Dear Shu - I believe they take either a specific culture such as from the diseased organ where there is discharge. Or, optionally, use the saliva, blood, or urine which is then potentized into a homeopathic product.

Thus, we have carcinosin for cancer miasm which comes originally from diseased breast tissue. However, you can also get carcinosin of lung, colon or other organ. In isopathy, it is the 'same' meaning from that particular individual which is then given back in potentized form, rather than general culture from another person. And, in the example of Lac maternum, this is a culture from many women's breast milk as a mixed potentized sample, instead of one woman, as in Lac humanum.

      Dear Surf Traveler ~ You lifted my spirits today by letting me know this was useful information. I have posted a lot more information about vaccinations. In fact, the #SWINEFLU pandemic has ended [it was all hype anyway] and most people I speak to who have had a vaccination, have had a bad reaction of exhibiting symptoms of the disease.

      A number of these live vaccinations can be contagious from discharge of the individual receiving vaccine. Check out my mini-blog

      Hi Debby, good information, I learned a few things about isopathy. I have been very concerned about childhood vaccinations, and wanted to learn more about isopathy and vaccines, I understand the differences now.

      Hi Frogfish ~ Your mom is totally awesome! What a genius she is. Please get her interested in isopathy/homeopathy. Sounds like it will resonate with her.

      Excellent established truth hub here. Thank you Debby. Interestingly, my elderly mother who has no 'educated' information about homeopathy except what little I have shared with her has used 'her own isopathy' with great success. She has severe 'reactions/sensitivity responses' to many common things in daily life, including 'medicines'. She has learned to use 'spit drops' to 'neutralize' her symptoms when she is reactive and doesn't know what is causing it: i.e. her personal momentary isopathy! Am bookmarking your hub to share with her someday. Thanks again for your hard work - great results!

      Isopathic remedies are very effective, for many conditions, especially for healing various bacterias, viruses, other pathogens in blood and urine... etc.

      Thank you for interesting Hub, Debby.

      Hi She-rah ~ We are only just learning today the long term effects of all our medical treatments, including vaccinations. Of course, it is frightening to find out that perhaps we have been performing harmful therapy. There are those defending their territory. There are others moving into a new belief system. Whatever you choose, do what you feel is best for you through knowledge, education, research and care. love, Debby

      Hi Debby, great hub! I tend to lump all the natural treatments together when referencing isopathy, homeopathy, natural supplements, etc. I just say natural treatments, lol, covers all the bases. I'd say a majority do not really understand the difference. "Natural Treatments" are a very broad topic with so many varying mechanisms of action. I have studied isopathy a bit. I believe self inoculation with isopathy is a much safer way to avoid disease and illness. I wish I had been aware of so much more about vaccines/immunizations when my children had been born. It is still uncertain the amount of damaging effects they have on us 10, 20, or 50 yrs from now. I honestly think immunizations may have played a vital role in mine and my childrens' health. Our immune systems are just haywire. I'm sure the toxic things added to vacc. to CAUSE an unnatural immune response have a lot to do with our immune system glitches. Who knows for sure? Doctors certainly don't!
