Work method for Disease Classification

ll of our articles are described from the standpoint of disease classification. You will come across this phrase many times on our website. The biggest difference in the way medication is prescribed, you will find clearly explained under the button “Disease Classification”. When we dissect the flower displayed above, we come to various flower petals, all of which represent a different form of disease. Samuel Hahnemann dealt with diseases, as described in his book “Chronic Diseases”, according to which we can make the following distinction:

Hereditary Diseases

Those diseases that occur in the ancestry, which we might be genetically burdened with, belong here. There is a connection to our constitution, because it is passed on genetically and because of that, the resultant disease comes from the inside. “It’s in our genes…..”

Iatrogenic Diseases

In this flower petal, the usage of medication and the vaccinations that someone has received are placed.


Here we are dealing with our biography. What have we experienced in our life and what kind of impact has that made? Which influences shaped us and possibly left some traces behind? Here we are also dealing with a stimulus coming from outside, it happens to us… Grandfather passes away, baby sister gets very sick, husband has a girlfriend or wife has a boyfriend and wants a divorce. In other words, circumstances on which we can exert no influence…

Acute Miasmatical

The diseases in this flower petal usually run severely. The patient has pneumonia, a gallstone attack, hay fever, migraine, enterocolitis, bladder infection etc. At that moment, someone is very sick. It is an illness coming from within, often being triggered by an incident, a stimulus coming from outside. The Birch is flowering and a time of hay fever commences. We catch a cold and develop pneumonia. Grandfather passes away and the daughter sinks into despair. Spouse is fired and slips into a burn-out situation.

Endogenous problems always point towards a constitutional problem. This means that someone’s constitution (the physical condition) is not able to give an adequate response to an outside stimulus. Grandmother catches the flu-virus. She is advanced in her age and no longer as fit and agile as she used to be, catches the flu and subsequently develops pneumonia.

Due to her constitutional weakness, the pneumonia can turn out to be fatal for her.

Epidemic diseases (in-between-diseases)

In this flower petal you will find those diseases that are transmitted through an outside source; the flu, Legionella, SARS, Measles, Mumps, and others. If we are healthy, we are perfectly capable to go through these diseases without as much as one complication. The infection and the undergoing of the disease will stay nicely locked in this flower petal without disrupting our constitution and without putting us in a serious state of disease.


Here we will only find information when someone has been infected with Gonorrheae at one point in his or her life. The infection is exogenous and straightforward to treat. When antibiotics have been used to suppress the symptoms that are caused by this disease, the disease will connect to the constitution and become an endogenous problem. There could also have been an infection with Gonorrheae by one of the ancestors. This is then always transmitted to the next generation. Again, this is then classified as an endogenous problem, because we are born with the after effects of grandfather’s or grandmother’s infection.


Inside this flower petal, a contamination with the sexual transmitted disease syphilis has occurred. The same applies to this disease as mentioned above for Sycosis. It is very easy to treat after the first symptom is displayed. The treatment will take longer when the disease has already been suppressed (antibiotics).

Psora (constitutional)

We are born with our own body, our own genetic burden, possibilities and impossibilities, qualities and weaknesses and the sum of these, comprises our constitution. Our life rises or falls depending on our physical and our mental/emotional condition. The trick is to ensure that an optimal balance is reached. An optimal action-reaction pattern, which can eliminate the disruptive outside influences and keep our immune system awake and alert.

This ensures that every form of disease can stay in his own flower petal and can heal, without undermining our constitutional condition. This prevents that someone could end up in an acute miasmatical situation. At the same time, all diseases can slowly, but surely be cleared. After all, the only weapon we have to conquer diseases, is our health; to ensure our constitution is as strong as possible.

This is how it was described by Hahnemann.

“Sed tristique diam sit amet felis volutpat, vel cursus dolor maximus duis ultricies rutrum dolor et. Interdum et malesuada fames ac ante ipsum primis in faucibus. Integer accumsan tempus finibus.”
