It is a Method to develop new homeopathic medicines or to develop an increased understanding of the healing potential of existing homeopathic medicines. It’s a form of qualitative research.
Provings are Based on Ancient Experiments that Predated Hahnemann. There were approximately 100 provings by Hahnemann’s Death in 1843. 8000-9000 homeopathic medicines are in use today; approximately 2200 of these have had provings. There are several types of proving, The Hahnemannian proving is the gold standard.
The proving should be conducted using Hahnemannian principles, with safety standards, free of bias and the methodology applied should be transparent and clear.
The remedy selected may be a poorly proven one; a representative of kingdoms, families or Miasms; poisons, mythological or cultural substances; substances known for their healing properties, the dream; local substance; regulatory or a combination formula. There are several proving standards like Organon, national and international standards and US standards.
