HERING’S LAW OF CURE “THE FORCE OF GENTLENESS IS GREAT”

Hering's Law of Cure is the basis of all healing. It states the way the body heals or cures itself.

"All cure starts from within out, from the head down and in reverse order as the symptoms have appeared or been suppressed.”


"We don't catch diseases, we create them by breaking down the natural

defenses according to the way we eat, drink, think and live.”


It is important to remember this law in order to allow the body to eliminate toxins created daily.


Constantine Hering (1800-1880) was born in Germany. While attending Leipzig University he started studying the teachings of Samuel Hahnemann, to be known as the “founder” of homeopathy. After receiving successful homeopathic treatments, himself for a wound that became infected, he expanded his studies on homeopathy and started making great contributions in respect to how the body heals.


His law encompasses three parts:

  1. His first law states that healing advances from the deepest part of our body.

  2. His second law states that as our healing process progresses, symptoms might appear and disappear in the opposite way and order they originally appeared.

  3. His third law states that we heal from the upper to the lower parts of the body.

As to Dr. Hering’s observation, the last injury we experience is repaired first, so when you sustain an injury, your body heals your recent injury first. Only if the body has enough energy left it will go back to work on older injuries in its own order of priorities.


We should keep in mind that there are NO QUICK FIXES and that other factors need to be considered like sleeping habits, diet, exercise, emotional state. When disease presents itself it’s because the person’s ability to correct the imbalance is not functioning.
