a) To know the pathogenetic effect i.e. disease producing
effect of drug upon healthy human being.
b) To observe & note the alterations of the normal
sensations by the production of subjective symptoms.
c) To observe & note derivations in the appearance on the
surface, changes in the tissue, organs, changes in the

d) To bring out the characteristics of the drug as they
manifest in the diseased states.
www.experthomeo.com

It involves three basic components of Proving:
I. The Test Drug
II. The Proving Team
III. The Procedure

quality of the test substance, its dose, selection of
provers, involvement of other team members.
• He works in recording & analysis of proving data,
ensures highest standards of proving, co-ordinates with
the people involved in proving, ensures the safety of
provers, & takes overall view of the project.
www.experthomeo.com
Advisor / Expert
• A qualified botanist, zoologist, chemist, microbiologist, or
a physician can be the Advisor.
• He provides the characteristic detail of the test
substance, assists the Project Director & provides
information about the pharmacological action of the test
substance & its biological study on lab. animals.
• He certifies the health of the prover & conducts
necessary exam. & investigation before, during & after
proving.
www.experthomeo.com
Proving Supervisors / Panel of Investigators
• Qualified & experienced homoeopaths can be the

b) Sick persons may be hyper-/hypo-sensitive & so intensity of
symptoms may vary
c) Chance of cure/relief possible
d) If drug is dissimilar to the disease, it may have no effect / may
form a complex disease
www.experthomeo.com
Prover

Regarding Drug
• Must be well-known, pure, genuine, & thoroughly
assured
• Must be taken in simple, unadulterated form
• Must be taken singly

nor during proving
• Take only simple & nutritious diet. Young green peas,
green French beans & carrots allowed; green

• Exact site of appearance of symptoms i.e. primary
location; any radiation / shifting
• Modalties with factors of < & > as change of posture,
rest, movement, pressure, thermal, any food / drinks,
etc. & its relationship to normal physiological functions
• Craving & aversions
www.experthomeo.com
Procedure
Recording of Symptoms:
• Any change in normal physiological functions such as
taste, touch, appetite, thirst, sleep, vision, hearing,
perspiration, discharges, digestion, sexuality, etc.
• Possibility of external causative factors other than the
test drug that could produce symptoms
• Any new symptoms
• Any usual / current symptoms intensified
• Any current symptoms modified / altered with description
www.experthomeo.com
Symptoms Recorded during Proving:
Recording of Symptoms:
• Narcotic substances – only symptoms of secondary action
• Except narcotics – symptoms of primary action
• Altenating actions – produced by some drugs
• Modalities – in relation to time, position, weather, etc.
• Any alteration from normal health
• Very old / new symptoms
www.experthomeo.com
Symptoms Recorded during Proving:
Recording of Symptoms:
• Moderate doses – primary effects observed distinctly
• Large doses – symptoms not elicited distinctly because:
a. Primary effects appear in hurry, nothing distinct
b. Secondary effects mixed up with primary effects
c. Toxic effects may develop
