True homoeopathy only teaches medicine in its fullness, all other methods are largely unmitigated delusions that pander to ignorance….
Detecting obscure mental twists is a very helpful part of our work, especially because these things permeate and color the whole fabric of the patients being. Be he secretive, prideful, arrogant, cynical, careless, amative or what not, his traits betray his basic predilections and largely motivate his actions, thereby affording one of the surest indications for the most suitable remedy.
The mental attitude of most medical men is a clear example of how far distorted reasoning may subvert logic; withal, a few rise above their training and thereby pay a glorious tribute to the power of indwelling light and truth. These men soon outgrow the fetters of an ultimately reactionary teaching, being helped materially thereto by disinterested work for the uplift of others.
The manner and moods that patients display are of far greater value than any particular words that we may listen to . This we call personality; something quite apart. It is the objective halo with which the mind surround itself; the true tincture of its action and is deserving of our closest scrutiny. The mind that hides itself in the subtleties of speech is far removed from the one that almost invariably uses direct and positive language.
Low spirited; ill humor; weeping; constant hot, vertex headache; acidity of stomach; skin symptoms or piles, suppressed, pruritus ani or vulvae; weak, faint spells in a.m.; menorrhagia; flashes followed by prostration, hungry feeling or cold sweat; skin dry; hunger at 11 a.m.; suffocation, wants window and doors open.

This is to a large extent only apparently true, because all upward paths lead to the summit, however devious they may seem to be. No two prescribers will follow exactly the same course in finding the similimum, yet if both the true followers of the law they must finally choose the same remedy.
There is an excellent reason why, in all countries of the world, the insane are called lunatics. In olden days, lunatics were called “money”. This little book deserves commendation. Unfortunately the arrangement of the material is not very clear, there is no index and it is therefore very difficult to use.
Unless acute disease becomes dangerous or throws upon the screen some individualistic indication it generally should not be interfered with. Ultimately the constitutional peculiarity is bound to reveal itself in a form pointing clearly to its remedial counterpart. Nature calls for relief in her own language, which it behooves us to learn, rather than to distort by our own predilections or too often only educated prejudices.
Other valuable additions to homoeopathic literature have been those translations of the works of Boenninghausen and other writers, most notably German, which have been made available through the tireless application of this worthy follower of Hahnemann.
In order to sense the sharpness of his tools the physician must needs have a just comprehension of the physics of life, especially as implied in the philosophy of Hahnemanns Organon. OUR old, brutal materialism seems to be slowly melting away.
Hahnemann first diluted drugs to lessen their violent action and in doing so incidentally hit upon the principle of potentization. The diphtheria case shows how the force of circumstances may restrict our choice to the nearest similar as the most available remedy.

Always be suspicious of a sudden cessation of symptoms without a reaction. If the patient gets better almost instantly with no sign of a reaction, it arouses the suspicion that the action of the remedy is only palliative. Cases in which reaction occurs within a reasonable length of time and not too suddenly are well shown in the neuralgias.
In common with most homoeopathic physicians, I have seen a few almost unbelievable cancer cures from the internal use of our remedies. Almost any remedy has occasionally cured, when it was in fact solely prescribed upon some special or prominent indication but happened also to have the general symptoms which corresponded to the life history of the patient, hence corresponding accurately and in its entirety to the disease picture.

The appearance of the external symptoms is a manifestation of the internal storm. In speaking of these external manifestations we are not speaking of symptoms of arteries, of muscles, or of mind, but rather of universal symptoms shown in every part of the body, for the sick patient shows distress as a unit, and not as separate, single discrete changes or actions.
It is noteworthy that this remedy presents quite a few of the modalities of Pulsatilla and of Rhus tox. and for this reason is often overlooked, often being needed when Rhus is given. It is a common complaint that poison ivy doesnt act long or thoroughly enough; when a careful scrutiny of the Magnesia carb. symptomatology will show that it should have been given instead.
The mental attitude of most medical men is a clear example of how far distorted reasoning may subvert logic; withal, a few rise able their training and thereby pay a glorious tribute to the power of indwelling light and truth. These men soon outgrow the fetters of an ultimately reactionary teaching, being helped materially thereto by disinterested work for the uplift of others.
In doing so he evolved a new and unique method of dealing with symptoms and at the same time showed that success with the abnormal depends upon fully realizing what is normal. Just as the lights and shadows of the mind color every form and kind of action, so they foreshadow those oncoming storm crises which we call sickness, by changes of mood and disposition.
In treating sick people the atmosphere charged by the mind of the patient and which the acute physician senses at once, governs much that he outwardly sees, and must be taken fully into account, if we wish to do the best possible work. It is here that pure homoeopathy is far superior to every other form of treatment and the great beauty of it is, that every new scientific development only adds strength to its already commanding prestige.

The selection of the most appropriate remedy depends upon our ability to pick out the distinctive features from the whole life history of the invalid. These placed together like beads on a string make up the red strand of his individuality and point unerringly toward the indicated constitutional remedy.
Burrowing, cutting pain, as from a dull instrument within the head, with transient loss of consciousness and repeated roaring and buzzing within the depths of the cranium. Feeling of fulness and fine stitches in various spots on the forehead when raising up, disappearing almost entirely from warm coverings.

The main features of some remedies greatly resemble the broad outlines of certain diseases, as Belladonna and scarlet fever, Lachesis and chorea major, Lachesis and typhus fever, Phosphorous and pneumonia, Antimonium tart and capillary bronchitis, etc., etc. This similarity lies at root of the idea of specific, but even so, instances are constantly occurring in which some outstanding indication takes the clinical case entirely out of the specific class. …

Hahnemann called attention to the bizarreness of symptoms, as being definitive, whether of direct or correlative origin.

About a score of our drugs act out the common ills of life in their pathogeneses. These Hahnemann called polychrests and if we must have favourites let us learn all we can about these first of all. …
The original Materia Medica Pura of Hahnemann contains but relatively few conditions of aggravation and amelioration, leaving us to infer that originally they were used much less than now, although Boenninghausen was quick to add this helpful factor to our working knowledge of the remedies. …
