Hahnemann first coined the word "homeopathy" - "homoios" in Greek means "similar", "pathos" means suffering. By his method, he identified the toxicity of plants and minerals by unique form of attenuation, whereby effects could be noted on healthy subjects, that in turn, the attenuation given to a patient suffering with a similar 'drug picture,' it would alleviate if not cure the condition. Thus, similar suffering.

Over time, as the proving (toxicology) of remedies were noted and recorded, what emerged for most remedies was a unique 'drug picture,' a grouping of symptoms that provided a mental 'snap shot', a gestalt, of each substance. To that effect, homeopaths learned of the corpulence of ammonium salts, the untidiness of the sulphur patient, the body stench of the pyrogenium, the hysteria of the ignatia bean, etc. These provided clinical keynotes, and easily identified clues in pursuit of the proper remedy. The drug pictures became time savers in clinical practice, as their aim was to cure, unlike the opposing allopathic school was to simply palliate with such drugs as laudanum (opium), fowler's solution, calomel, etc.

Dr. Weihe, a German homeopath of the 19th century, noted that the 'drug picture' (grouping of symptoms) would uniquely manifest in a topical tender point, a ganglion like contraction of the subcutaneous and muscular tissues. To this effect, he searched for the location and identity of these 'tender points' among his thousands of patients, documenting over one hundred homeopathic remedies with their unique localized tender point.

This discovery, from what one French author relates, "set the homeopathic world on fire." This unique finding, the topical points of Wiehe, could dramatically simplify the process of remedy selection. Several French homeopaths, dual trained in acupuncture in the Soulie d'Morant era (early 1900), noted that many of the points of Weihe were also classical acupuncture points.

One would think that this revelation would set the acupuncture world of fire, but it died with its chief proponent and scholar, Dr. de la Fuye. He called it "Homeosiniatry" - - defined as a medical methodology that combines homeopathy and acupuncture; "Homeo" stands for Homeopathy and "Siniatry" for Sinology, the study of Chinese culture (Dr. Roger de La Fuye, 1947).

Dr. Anton Jayasuriya, of the Kalubowila Government Teaching Hospital, acupuncture division, was the first to began administering homeopathic remedies by the needle. What he termed the ‘dip and prick’ method, the acupuncture needle is dipped into a homeopathic/alcoholic solution and then punctured into the point. The author learned this from his mentor and saw amazing success with treatment of vitiligo using the homeopathic remedy Sepia, by this method circa 1990's, and led to further develop this method is clinical practice.

The author, having studied for decades the works of Wiehe, Jayasuriya, and of de la Fuye, has led to a rather startling discovery, a neurlogical explanation that combines the actions and effects of toxicology and neuropuncture (acupuncture).

Searching for a proper word to encapsulate this antahkarana - the dual concepts of Qi (ch'i) and Aether, of acupuncture and homeopathy, one word from Latin derivation in this tradition, I propose, homeoprofectus: "Homeo/homoios" SIMILAR effect, and "profectus" to make, accomplish, effect, be useful, do good.
