Hahnemann graduated from the college of medicine at Leipzig and was ready to practice at the age of 22 Hahnemann supported himself by making translations. He found much in the writing of the ancients that he considered were facts and applied to the sick of his day. He was ever searching for a key to unlock the door which would lead him to the way that would heal the sick.

Every perceptibly progressive and strikingly increasing amelioration in a transient (acute) or persistent (chronic) disease, is a condition which, as long as it lasts, completely precludes every repetition of the administration of any medicine whatsoever, because all the good the medicine taken continues to effect is now hastening towards its completion. Every new dose of any medicine whatsoever, even of the one last administered, that has hitherto shown itself to be salutary, would in this case disturb the work of amelioration; Organon.
This remark was made by Hahnemann here only because he had bitter experience in trying to explain how cholera spreads or affects persons with a probable i.e. doubtful theory which unhappily our friend has utilised for honouring Hahnemann really perhaps trying to honour himself by way of, as he thought a wonderful or intelligent discovery. To call Hahnemann father of Bacteriology is only to do him dishonour to our minds, as said before.

A young unmarried girl suffering from pain at the time of menses came to my clinic for treatment. The pain was intolerable and she used to cry bitterly. While examining her pulse, noticed a small nodular growth on the right wrist. This reminded me of Asafoetida. My belief was confirmed when I saw her tongue, for Asafoetida tongue is thick and on protrusion it folds like a tube.

Intuitive knowledge was known to Indian Yogis long ago. It is the real knowledge (Sahan Gyan) as laid down in the Gita. According to the modern psychologists, knowledge is of two kinds: Logical and Intuitive. Logical knowledge is derived from the study of books, observation and reflection; while Intuitive knowledge is the result of self-purification.
Asthma is of frequent occurrences following suppressions of skin eruptions. Many chronic diseases arise from suppression of grief and are not easily amenable to treatment. Grief melts into tears and eases the burden of the mind and thus saves lives. But when this does not occur mind is overwhelmed with grief and death or disease of pernicious character makes its appearance.
In a limited field this method has its own utility, for example, in regard to investigations on food, vitamins, hormones, etc. But the claims of the experimental pharmacologist that out of the results of these experimental methods an objective materia medica can be built up which can be utilised on objective indications for the control and treatment of diseased conditions, are far too excessive.
