He was a member of various scientific societies in Leipsic and other cities, and was highly honored for his researches in chemistry. The last years of Hahnemanns life were spent in Paris, where he was received with every mark of respect and honor, and where his great ability was recognized by an enormous clientage.

Hahnemann believed that other astringent substances are not effective against malaria and began to research cinchona's effect on the human body by self-application.

Noting that the drug induced malaria-like symptoms in himself, [14] he concluded that it would do so in any healthy individual. This led him to postulate a healing principle: "that which can produce a set of symptoms in a healthy individual, can treat a sick individual who is manifesting a similar set of symptoms. He first used the term homeopathy in his essay Indications of the Homeopathic Employment of Medicines in Ordinary Practice, published in Hufeland 's Journal in He claimed that these dilutions, when prepared according to his technique of "potentization" using dilution and succussion vigorous shaking , were still effective in alleviating the same symptoms in the sick.

His more systematic experiments with dose reduction really commenced around —01 when, on the basis of his "law of similars," he had begun using Ipecacuanha for the treatment of coughs and Belladonna for scarlet fever. Following a series of further essays, he published in "Organon of the Rational Art of Healing", followed over the years by four further editions entitled The Organon of the Healing Art , the first systematic treatise and containing all his detailed instructions on the subject.

A 6th Organon edition, unpublished during his lifetime, and dating from February , was only published many years after his death. It consisted of a 5th Organon containing extensive handwritten annotations. Of the Organon, Robert Ellis Dudgeon states it "was an amplification and extension of his "Medicine of Experience", worked up with greater care, and put into a more methodical and aphoristic form, after the model of the Hippocratic writings. Around the start of the nineteenth century Hahnemann developed a theory, propounded in his essay On the Effects of Coffee from Original Observations, that many diseases are caused by coffee.

But it is very seldom that they have been thought worth observing and recording. And yet these very small doses excite the system to evacuations which shorten their duration of action in cases of disease where the remedy has been unsuitably and not accurately homoeopathically chosen.

He who has understood this will perceive that if a work on Materia Medica can reveal the precise quantities of medicines, it must be one from which all mere assumption and empty speculation about the reputed qualities of drugs are excluded, and which only records what medicines express concerning their true mode of action in the symptoms they produce in the human body. Hence the practitioner will rejoice to find here a way in which he can remove the maladies of his fellow-creatures surely, rapidly, and permanently, and procure them the blessing of health with much greater certainty.

In the complex symptoms, however, there occur not unfrequently some to which, if I had had time, I would have added parallel citations referring them to their proper position. Human life is in no respect regulated by purely physical laws.

With nought in the world can we compare it save with itself alone. And even were such practice ever so customary and ever so generally in use. The material substances of which the human organism is composed no longer follow. Here a nameless fundamental power reigns omnipotent.

The exciting causes of disease rather act by means of their essential properties on the state of our life on our health. For on the removal of all morbid symptoms nothing remains but health. Hence nothing in the world can accomplish a cure, no substance, no power can effect a change in the human organism of such a character as that the disease shall yield to it, except an agent capable of absolutely dynamically deranging the human health, consequently also of morbidly altering its healthy state.

For if we only have before us records of the peculiar artificial morbid symptoms produced by the various medicines on healthy individuals, we only require a series of pure experiments to decide what medicinal symptoms will always rapidly and permanently cure and remove certain symptoms of disease, in order to know, in every case beforehand, which of all the different medicines known and thoroughly tested as to their peculiar symptoms must be the most certain remedy in every case of disease.

Now, as every medicine possesses an action different from that of every other, and as, according to eternal natural laws, every disease causes a derangement of the human health different from that caused by all other diseases, this proposition contains an innate contraction contradictionem in adjecto , and is self-demonstrative of the impossibility of a good result, since every given change can only be effected by an adequate cause, but not per quamlibet causam.

And daily experience also proves that the ordinary practice or prescribing complex recipes containing a variety of unknown medicines in diseases, does indeed do many things, but very rarely cures.

Such an employment, as will be readily seen, cannot effect a permanent cure of the disease, because the malady must soon afterwards recur, and that in an aggravated degree. The process that takes place is as follow: And thus the malady is always. It is only when these external inimical agencies assail us in a very aggravated degree, and we are especially exposed to their influence, that we get ill, but even then we only become seriously ill when our organism has a particularly impressionable, weak side predisposition , that makes it more disposed to be affected by the simple or compound morbific cause in question, and to be deranged in its health.

But as, taken on the whole, diseases are only exceptional states of the human health, and it is necessary that such a number of circumstances and conditions, both as regards the morbific agents and the individual to be affected with disease, should conjoin before a disease is produced by its exciting causes, it follows, that the individual is so little liable to be affected by such noxae, that they can never unconditionally make him ill, and that the human organism is capable of being deranged to disease by them only by means of a particular predisposition.

For every true medicine acts at all times, under all circumstances, on every living, animated body, and excites in it the symptoms peculiar to it even in a way perceptible to the senses if the dose be large enough so that evidently every living human organism must always and inevitably be affected by the medicinal disease and, as it were, infected, which, as is well known, is not the case with respect to natural diseases.

There is no case of adynamic disease in the world excepting the death struggle. Preamble 1. Something similar takes place in the human mind. The diseased individual can be freed from his malady. Without this investigation and unless their pure pathogenetic action on the healthy individual has previously been ascertained all treatment of disease must continue to be not only a foolish.

I am astonished that after the very particular directions contained in the Organon of Medicine more special instructions can be wished for. For every individual given case and every case is an individuality. But this will not often happen, seeing that during the action upon a previously healthy person of a sufficiently strong dose of the medicine, he is under the influence of the medicine alone, and it is seldom that any other symptom can show itself during the first days but what must be the effect of the medicine.

Further, that in order to investigate the symptoms of medicines for chronic diseases, for example, in order to develop the cutaneous diseases, abnormal growths and so forth, to be expected from the medicine, we must not be contented with taking one or two doses of it only, but we must continue its use for several days, to the amount of two adequate doses daily, that is to say, of sufficient size to cause us to experience an action from it, whilst at the same time we continue to observe the diet and regimen indicated in the work alluded to.

I would only observe here, that for the proving of medicines on healthy individuals, dilutions and dynamizations are to be employed as high as are used for the treatment of disease, namely, globules moistened with the decillionth development of power. Every cured case of disease shows only how that case has been treated. The internal process of the treatment depends always on the same rules, which are already known, and they cannot be rendered concrete and definitely fixed for each individual case, nor can they become at all more distinct by the history of a single cure than they were already by the publication of these rules.

Every case of non-miasmatic disease is peculiar and special, and it is the special in it that distinguishes it from every other case, that pertains to it alone, but that cannot serve as a model for the treatment of other cases.

Now, if it is wished to describe a complicated case of disease consisting of many symptoms, in such a circumstantial manner that the reasons that influence us in the choice of the remedy shall be clearly revealed, this demands a multiplicity of details fatiguing at once for the describer and for the reader.

On any movement, especially at every step, and worst on making a false step, she has a shoot in the pit of the stomach, that comes, as she avers, every time from the left side. When she lies she feels quite well, then she has no pain anywhere, neither in the side nor in the pit of the stomach.

She cannot sleep after three o'clock in the morning. She relishes her food, but when she has eaten a little she feels sick. Then the water collects in her mouth and runs out of it, like the water-brash. She has frequent empty eructations after every meal. Her temper is passionate, disposed to anger. Pulsatilla see Symp.

Hence bryonia is to be preferred to them in this part of the ailment. I told my friend E. Two days afterwards he came again to ascertain the result, but the woman did not return then, and, in fact, never came back again.

I could only ally the impatience of my friend by telling him her name and that of the village where she lived, about a mile and a half off, and advising him to seek her out and ascertain for himself how she was. This he did, and her. The very next day I was quite well, and could again go to my washing, and the day following I was as well as I am still. I am extremely obliged to the doctor, but the like of us have no time to leave off our work; and for three weeks previously my illness prevented me earning anything.

The first evening he became, without manifest cause, sick and giddy, with much eructation. The following night about 2 a. The subsequent nights violent eructation.

To-day also sick eructation of fetid and sourish taste. He felt as if the food lay crude and undigested in his stomach. In his head he felt vacant, hollow, and gloomy, and as if sensitive therein. The least noise was disagreeable to him.

He is of a mild, soft, patient disposition. That several medicines cause vertigo with nausea, as well as pulsatilla 3 , which produces its vertigo in the evening also 7 , a circumstance that has been observed from very few others.

Stramonium and nux vomica cause vomiting of sour and sour-smelling mucus, but, as far as is known, not at night. Valerian and cocculus cause vomiting at night, but not of sour stuff. Iron alone causes vomiting at night 61, 62 , and can also cause sour vomiting 66 , but not the other symptoms which should be attended to here. Nocturnal eructation is peculiar to pulsatilla , Fetid, putrid and sour eructation , is also peculiar to pulsatilla.

The sensation of indigestibility of the food in the stomach is produced by few medicines, and by none in such a perfect and striking manner as by pulsatilla , , Besides ignatia 2 which, however, cannot produce the other ailments, the same state is produced by pulsatilla 39 compared with 42, 94, Pulsatilla produces the same state , and it also causes over sensitiveness of other organs of the senses, for example, of the sight And although intolerance of noise is also met with in nux vomica, ignatia, and aconite, yet these medicines are not homoeopathic to the other symptoms and still less do they possess symptom 8, the mild character of the disposition, which, as stated in the preface to pulsatilla, is particularly indicative of this plant.

It was accordingly given to him immediately; but, on account of his weakly and exhausted state, only in a very minute dose, i. By this means I have. I allude to the so-called pure inflammatory fevers. Although the following symptoms do not express the whole significance of this most valuable plant. The freshly expressed juice of the plant at the time of the commencement of flowering mixed with equal parts of spirits of wine. Their names will be found attached. I knew also that they had faithfully observed the carefully regulated die.

In these acute cases of disease sometimes a homoeopathic intermediate remedy is required for the morbid symptoms remaining after twelve or sixteen hours' action of the first dose of aconite.

It is precisely in the great acute inflammatory fevers in which allopathy chiefly plumes itself as alone able to save life by means of bold. In measles. By means of aconite carefully administered in this way in a disease of the above- mentioned character all danger is removed even in four hours.

It is seldom that a second similar dose is required thirty-six or forty-eight hours after the first. In the selection of aconite as a homoeopathic remedy particular attention should be paid. Its utility in such cases is shown by the symptoms it produces in the healthy subject. But in order to remove from our conscientious treatment all that routine practice which is only too apt to regulate its treatment in accordance with delusive names of diseases.

I cannot enter more fully in this place. Aconite is also the first and main remedy. The effect is then astonishing. Although aconite. It is precisely here that the infinite superiority of homoeopathy is manifest. On this subject. It produces all the morbid states similar to those seen in persons who have had a fright combined with vexation. Vermischte Schriften.
