       Dr. Eizayaga’s work with homeopathic prophylaxis during epidemics will also be remembered. He has also helped to differentiate the various symptoms and characteristics of a person to find the correct medicine. Dr. Eizayaga has asserted that a ‘constitutional medicine’ is prescribed primarily according to a person’s genetic endowment and some of the person’s deeply-seated psychological tendencies. A ‘fundamental medicine’ is prescribed according to the functional symptoms which represent the organism’s response to the various stresses it is experiencing.

Dr. Eizayaga notes that fundamental states may change and pile up on each other like concentric skins of an onion. He also differentiates the treatment of organic pathology from constitutional or fundamental states. For more information on Dr. Eizayaga, please visit www.homeos.org.
