Polarity Analysis in Homeopathy

Polarity Analysis in Homeopathy, a Precise and Reproduceable Path to the best fitting Remedy 

Seminar 22. – 23. june 2024 in Odense, Denmark
by Dr. Heiner Frei, Switzerland


In 2001, Dr. Heiner Frei developed his Polarity Analysis (PA) for use in a rigorous Swiss double-blind study investigating the efficacy of homeopathy in the treatment of hyperactive children. He and his team were able to demonstrate the superiority of high-potency remedies as compared to placebo, using the reliability that PA affords in remedy selection – resulting in an astonishing 84% success rate. Prospective outcome studies performed since then on both acute and chronic diseases have confirmed PA’s dependability. Based on Hahnemann’s favourite repertory, Clemens von Bœnninghausen’s Therapeutic Pocketbook (1846), Polarity Analysis uses strict proving data and grading, and employs Bœnninghausen’s concept of contraindications. Put simply, many symptoms – and modalities, in particular – can have a bipolar expression, and these both may be found in the same remedy. For example, “covering aggravates” is found in Aconite (Grade 4), and yet this remedy also shows up in “covering ameliorates” (Grade 1). Polarity Analysis seeks to deal with these opposite symptoms and utilizes the difference in grades to mathematically determine a plus/minus for each specific symptom (the Polarity Difference). The remedy best indicated for the patient will be the one that has the highest polarity difference in favour of the totality of symptoms that the patient has furnished in self-reported checklists and questionnaires, provided there are no contraindications. Efficient. Accurate. Reliable.

Participants will not only have the opportunity to learn Polarity Analysis from the original source, but are also encouraged to download the PA software (polarity-analysis.com) and repertorize along with Dr. Frei throughout the course.

In an age when evidence-based medicine is now the rule, Polarity Analysis provides us with a tool with which to respond to homeopathy’s harshest critics, and to help move our profession into the realm of accepted scientific modality. Because there is no substitute for reliable results.

Children normally react very well to homeopathic treatment. But depending on their age and the ability of the parents to make acurate observations, we often receive only few symptoms for the determination of a homeopathic remedy. Polarity Analysis (PA) is a new method, that allows us to find the best fitting remedy even if there are few symptoms. It is based on the grading of polar symptoms in Boenninghausens Therapeutic Pocketbook. PA has been developped for the Swiss ADHD double blind trial, a rigorous study which proved a significant effect of homeopathy in comparison to placebo. Today we apply the method successfully in many acute and chronic disease in children and adults, as well as in multimorbid patients.

Teaching Program
In this seminary we present the four basic modules of the PA-teaching program.

Module 1 introduces the method and it’s application in acute disease.
In Module 2 the participants learn to treat chronic cases with PA up to the point, that enables them to use the method in their own practice.
Module 3 deals with the proper handling of checklists and exposes pittfalls.
And Module 4 presents cases of neurological illness who serve to illustrate how to deal with polar symptoms in individual cases.
Each module consists of a power point presentation and a scriptum that summarizes the main points and contains exercise cases

A few days before the seminary the participants are encouraged to download a free test version of the polarity-analysis software (polarity-analysis.com) in order to apply PA during the seminary.

Heiner Frei was born and lives in Switzerland. After graduating from medical school in 1977, he specialized in Pediatrics and served for several years as Head Physician in Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at the University Children’s Hospital of Bern. In 1987, he began his own private practice and training in homeopathy, and was president of the Swiss Association of Homeopathic Physicians from 2001 to 2005.

Dr. Frei’s homeopathic research activities focus on clinical studies about acute ENT diseases, ADD/ADHD, H1N1-Influenza, and the treatment of multi-morbid patients. He was study coordinator of the rigorous Swiss double blind study on the homeopathic treatment of ADHD, which yielded scientific evidence for a specific effect of homeopathic medicines. In 2001, Dr. Frei developed “Polarity Analysis”, a new approach to improve the precision of homeopathic prescriptions, and has published numerous articles on the subject. He teaches homeopathy in Europe, India, and the United States, and has written four books on different aspects of Polarity Analysis and ADD/ADHD, including “Polarity Analysis in Homeopathy” and “Homeopathy and ADHD.” He has received several research awards for his scientific work. His latest work is Polarity Analysis software, a repertory with symptoms divided into three reliability classes, which allow for even more precise prescriptions. www.heinerfrei.ch/polarity-analysis
