Homeopathy is gradually receiving scientific validation. But there is an area of science where validation is available, and which is currently not being considered.

There are remarkable parallels between the homeopathic principles of health and disease and complex systems theory. The law of cure, the value of symptoms, organisms’ optimisation of their responses and other homeopathic principles can be derived from systems theory and cybernetics. These remarkable correlations provide extra scientific support for homeopathy and new ways of looking at some long-established homeopathic principles. They can also help to lead orthodox medicine to a new understanding of health and illness based on systems science.
