Direction of Symptoms During Cure

Direction of the symptoms takes place during the cure.


1. From within out.

2. Usually from above downwards.

3. In the reverse order to that in which they appeared.

This process goes on until the primary manifestations of the disease appear, whether it be the chancre of syphilis, the gonorrhoea of sycosis, or the eruption of psora.

The original discharge may not come back at the original place, but from some other mucous membrane. It is also to be remembered that the miasms be taken at any stage, and consequently if a woman takes syphilis from her husband in the sore throat stage we can only bring back the disease to that point and not to the chancre.
