Organopathy is a form of treatment where unlike in classical homeopathic case-taking the locality of the symptoms expressed and their relation to a specific organ determine the remedy to be described .
This approach originated from folk medical practice and was initially coined by Paracelsus (1493-1541) and his dictum of “similar must be compared to similar” . The idea underlying this was that an illness would be cured by a herbal medicine that had similar characteristics  expressed in its signature. Signature, as a doctrine, described the structure and characteristics of plants and their resemblance to organs or organs systems . To Paracelsus this meant, that a disturbance in the organs of the body could be matched by a herbal remedy that had characteristics similar to the disease symptoms expressed in the organ or organ system of the patient , and as such could be curative to that particular illness.
The Paracelsian similarity though is different to that underlying Hahnemannian principles. To Hahnemann (1755-1843) the dictum of “like cures like” was based on the symptomatology expressed in the patient that was met with a curative remedy selected because it expressed similar symptoms if administered to a healthy person .
