Although there are several thousand substances
in use as homeopathic remedies, only a proportion of these have received
a proper ‘proving’. Our knowledge of the others arises
in a number of ways, the most common being clinical experience.
A ‘proving’ is an experiment carried
out on healthy volunteers under careful conditions to discover what
happens to the health of each participant after taking the substance
being ‘proved’. Only when proved on a sufficiently large
number of people can one say with fair certainty that a remedy is known
sufficiently well to be useful.
Once proved, we know what conditions that remedy
can cure. So new provings are an important activity for homeopaths.
But they take time and considerable care and patience. Provings are
carried out by keen volunteers from time to time. It is not the proving
itself that inhibits quick access to this new knowledge, but the care
needed to carry it out and the time taken to assemble and organise,
then understand, and finally tabulate in an easily understandable and
useful form, the results of the proving.
Here is Uzma Ali’s contribution to the
understanding of a recent proving. In due course we hope to add to
this on a periodic basis.

and ‘slang’ begin to appear in the text. To someone without
a background in homeopathy, some of this will be hard to accept, because
the author is assuming that the reader has a working knowledge of the
As a matter of interest, Uzma's article is accessed by homoeopathic students from all over the world on a regular basis!
