The statement is sometimes made that the objective or pathological symptoms are more trustworthy because the imagination can play no part in their production. This statement is based on false reasoning. If we were to accept “out of whole cloth” all the sensations expressed by the provers, our materia medica would be as untrustworthy as it would be unworkable if the objective symptoms were alone admitted.
Commonly, reactions occur between things occupying kindred states or planes; when these are overstepped more violent effects appear. A little reflection will soon convince you of this, as well as carry the implication that an irregularly acting vital force can be best stabilized on its own plane of action; all of which leads inferentially into the field of potency activity.
Let the record of “accidental” deaths; the ever-lengthening list of chronic and incurable “protein diseases” and “disorders of metabolism”; the rapid extension of “drug addiction” with its aftermath of crime and disease; the always overflowing jails and hospitals and asylums for the insane-let these answer.
Scientific investigation consists in questioning nature in accordance with the hypothesis of this constant interphenomenal relationship. The object of the scientific intellect is always the same: to create for the human intelligence as faithful and serviceable a representation of the conditions under which phenomena appear as may be possible.
There was a pain, stiffness and numbness, worse before and during wet weather, rest, beginning motion, cold draft and lying on the painful side. Long-lasting constipation. She got very little rest or sleep. Her bowels had not moved naturally for months. She was fat, with a dry skin, could not sweat, good natured and cheerful. Very restless at night. Was much worse generally, and as regards her arthritis, during menstruation.
Homoeopathy is a doctrine whose principles are interlaced in the most rigorous manner in formation of a whole. The truth on which it rests and from which are derived a number of other truths as natural corallaries is immutable and eternal the same as every indisputable truth. On this it bases its irresistible potency and the expansion of its irreducible light.
Hahnemann placed no idle stigma when he said: “When we have to do with an art whose end is the saving of human life, any neglect to make ourselves thoroughly master of the same becomes a crime.” Of course in going back to allopathy, in ceasing the unfolding of homoeopathy and in the ceasing of drug provings we are making ourselves thoroughly masters of the art of healing, are we not?.
The examination of the radiographs taken of the left knee and femur, lateral view only, of Frederick II g shows considerable atrophy and decalcification of the bones comprising the knee joint. There is a large thickened area on the middle third of the femur. There is no doubt that this condition is tuberculosis of the knee joint with the extension of the process to the femur.
On clipping the hair from the neck the swelling showed up clearly. Diagnosis was injury to the neck, possibly a dislocation with some congestion. We applied a thick tape of absorbent cotton soaked in arnica lotion and bandaged, and gave Arnica 1x three drops in water three time a day. Next morning there was marked improvement. Same treatment continued for two days more.
In view of these facts generally known to mineralogists and in view of the chemical results for percentage total silica it seems reasonably certain that the following materials named in Table I contain free, crystalline silica, using the term “free” in its strict interpretation, namely – all granite dust samples, all the sand blast samples, construction sand, powdered quartzite, all the flint samples, quartz, and glass sand.
There are a few salient features pertaining to our discussions of Hans Burch Gram and his associates that were not brought to light upon the occasion of the Centenary Celebration of the Introduction of Homoeopathy into American Some of these points were singularly neglected, if not in a great measure entirely overlooked; and it is to the consideration of some of data that I wish to call the attention of the International Hahnemannian Association at this time.
