Murderers of homoeopathy are abroad. They prescribe high potencies in numerous doses in a single day, irrespective of short-acting or deep and long-acting drugs, with a free hand. They deviate from the laws and principles constantly. This may be judged from the practice of homoeopathy by three kinds of practitioners–the allopathic converts, the graduated homoeopaths, and laymen practitioners.
Of these, the second group of practitioners sticks to the theories and principles dogmatically, while the first group (with the exception of a few) cannot give up altogether the idea of allopathizing this science–for it is more difficult to forget a thing than to learn –and walks away from the path marked out by the “Master,” and most of the third group cannot but do so, as there is something in this science beyond the scope of general merit.
To have a glance at what may be the prime cause of this deviation and practice we see that it is due to a lack of regard for the Organon, the key to homoeopathy, which reveals or exposes to a practitioner of this science the laws of administration and repetition of doses and cases to meet with different potencies and various other requisites necessary for a practitioner in the course of his practice.
The only remedy to cure these abuses and deviations is to keep close to the Organon, the lever of the lock of the art of healing. The Organon is such a book that it is not to be memorized, or to be revealed with its meanings by a single study. But it is to be read over and over, again and again, to obtain a digest of it and to reach the zenith of its meaning at last.
Note: I may be short-witted or short-merited; I cannot proclaim myself a great homoeopath or a staunch devotee of the healing art. But these facts, coming to my knowledge, disturb me every now and then and I cannot refrain from voicing my thoughts regarding them.
