The lesser writing samuel hahnemann dharmesh

  1. 1. It is impossible To perceive the H’pathy Without studying His life
  2. 2. • Bradford – interest• Heahl – authentic• Lesser wirings – original & self investigation
  3. 3. objectives• To go through the various chapters of the book, get the plan and try to understand the key concepts and information shared by the author…• Thus try to explore the scientific pathy, critical views…• Importance in terms of relevance to exam and relevance to practice…• To evaluate characteristics of Sir Hahnemann as the book contains major short or long publications either as reply or motivated through his intense internal feelings…
  4. 4. Plan of the book
  5. 5. Intended to share With laymen and medical man (American) AboutThe genius and the genuine compassion of the renowned founder of homoeopathy.The reader will not fail to be impressed with the noble benevolence, as well as the natural and acquired talents of Hahnemann.
  6. 6. Starting from the papers were written while the author still belonged to the old school, and at a period several years previous to the discovery of the homoeopathic principle of cure The journey as readerdiscloses his characteristics as a person, as a chemist, as a physician of healing art, as a dietician and psychologist
  7. 7. The most intelligent critics of all schools who are familiar with his literary works, entertain the opinion that he was one of the most profound thinkers, the most learned and intelligent writers of his day, even when he is judged by those productions which have no special bearing upon homoeopathy.
  8. 8. Since the days of Hippocrates, there were very few whose opinions have stood the test of half a century so triumphantly as those of Samuel Hahnemann.It is almost impossible for any single man, however exalted his genius and talents, to arrive at absolute perfection, or to remain entirely free from errors; but in the instance of Hahnemann, we might almost claim an exception to the rule.
  9. 9. But while we claim for Hahnemann so exalted a position among the good, the wise, and the great benefactors of modern times, we are not so devoid of common sense as to claim for him infallibility. The wisest and best men of all ages, have had their faults and their errors.
  10. 10. Intention of author It is not my intention to enter here into a critical analysis of the writings contained in this volume, they must be read by every student of homoeopathy who wishes to become acquainted with the master-mind; suffice it to say I have thought fit to include in this collection an elaborate work of Hahnemann.I have arranged the writings as much as possible in the order of their appearances. - Dudgeon
  11. 11. From exam desk…• Hahnemann‟s concept of man• Precursor of Organon• Discuss the influence of concept in medical philosophy from the historical perspective (17th & 18th century) & its influence on development of homoeopathic philosophy.• Article – effects of coffee• Scientificity of theories• Hahnemann‟s view about diet and regimen in Rx of chronic disease.• Article – about current methods of Rx
  12. 12. • Discuss efficacy of Hom. M.M. versus common M.M.• According to Hahnemann, the curative power of each ad every medical substance depends on its one of action. What is that actions, explain in details.• Enumerate how did Dr. Hahnemann evolved the law of homeopathic pharmacology and therapeutic law of Homoeopathy.• Enumerate evolution of homoeopathic philo. Since its inception• Write in details, how Hahnemann recommended new way of dynamization the phosphorus remedy in his chronic diseases.• Brief summary of “medicine of experience”• Explain in details, the first article of 1796
  13. 13. Fac-simile of Master …for fol-lovers of him… …At the age of 86… Dr. Lehmann of Cothen, to whomHahnemann entrusted the preparation of all his medicines up to the latest period of hislife, and to whom I (Dudgeon) am indebted for this autographic historical object.
  14. 14. “To Hofrath Lehmann,Dear friend, I beg you to send me the third trituration in powder of the medicines in the accompanying list, which you have not yet sent me, and to give them to Amelia, she will bring them with her to me, along with a few lines from your pen, so the I may see they your are still alive, and that you are well and happy, and also how your dear family are. Both of us here are will, and send you all our hearty regards. Yours Sam. Hahnemann”
  15. 15. As the student of Homeopathy• To know the father - founder• Homoeopathy as a science of healing, still struggling at a general as well as individual level…• What makes us and author to proclaim the most scientific method of healing…• The actual journey of following the evidences and reaching to clarity, confidence and controversy…• The way of exploration of science and acceptance and rejection by current contemporary …• The reactions & results…• This is an attempt of critical & study
  16. 16. For our Master…His description of disease, his thorough knowledge of ancient languages, and of the medical acumen, and above all his acknowledged benevolence and integrity, would have secured for him a position among the great men of his century under any circumstances.
  17. 17. Instructions for surgeons respecting VENEREAL DISEASETogether with a new mercurial preparation By Samuel Hahnemann, doctor of medicine First published at Leipzig, 1789
  18. 18. THE FRIEND OF HEALTH By Samuel Hahnemann Doctor of medicine, member of theacademy of science of Montz and of the economical society of Leipzig
  19. 19. • In two parts – First part – published at Frankfort , 1792 – Second part – published at Leipzig, 1795• …indeed I should like to know if there is any condition in life, where some medical knowledge and some care for our own and our neighbors health are not necessary, of if it is ridiculous or humiliating, beyond the mere rude routine of our actual business, to devote some time to the finer but often not less important study of the structure and modes of preservation of the human body.
  20. 20. Oh! That in the following pages I were so fortunate as to be able to contribute something to the happiness of mankind, if they would listen to the voice of a warmfriend of his fellow creatures, as if it were the voice of a friend!
  21. 21. • The bite of the mad dog • Socrates and Physon on• The visitor of the sick the worth of outward show• Protection against infection in • Plans for eradicating a epidemics malignant fever, in a letter• In old women’s philosophy to Minster of police there is something good, did • More particular directions we know where to find it on the same subject• Things that spoil the air • Suggestions for the• There is good even in the prevention of epidemics in hurtful things general, especially in towns• Dietetic conversation with my • On the satisfaction of our bro. principally respecting the animal requirements in instinct of the stomach another than medical point of view• An occasional purgative, surely that can do • A nursery no harm? • On the choice of the family• On making the body hardy physician
  22. 22. • Bite of mad dogs…speaks of the erroneous opinions held by the public regarding the existence of specifics in rabbis particularly internal medicines as advocated by many clinicians. Hahnemann asks, “can a medicine be extolled as infallible that has not cured ten cases of his disease?”• In a footnote he suggests belladonna as a theoretical antidote, “but it must be so strong that two grains of it are sufficient to causes in a healthy individual, troublesome symptoms.”
  23. 23. • Protection against infection… is common sense advice to those meeting contagious disease, keep well, eat well and avoid fatigue. The fumigation of the sick room is of no value but frequent changes of air are all important.• Old women‟s philosophy… is an interesting explanation of popular superstitions such as the dirty stocking around the neck” in sore throat, which he says is a way to bring warmth to the cervical glands and in not unreasonable.
  24. 24. • A very sound, almost modern discussion, through faulty in chemistry and physics, is found in “things that spoil the air”.• “dietetic conversation” is a rational discussion of dietary measures stressing individualization in diet prescription and more careful observation and questioning.• That nature is capable of herself to evacuate bowel contents and “infinitely better than can be done by our own art” is massage in “an occasional purgative”. Is should be noted that those advises he gives in an age when evacuation of morbid products was the widely popular, accepted and considered as the logical therapy.
  25. 25. • In “on making the body hardy”, Hahnemann suggests the union of the peasant constitution with a good cultivation of the mind as the “ne plus ultra of a rational and suitable education.” this is one of the best examples of freethinking present in any medical literature of the time.• To see clearly a problem in epidemiology is the task of a medical man thoroughly trained in public health measures. In 1795 Hahnemann presented a series of rules in „plans for eradicating a malignant fever” which will stand the test of todays requirements. With stilted phraseology and interrogatory expressions he outlines a contagious hospital with the problem of isolation adequately solved. “they the infected cases belong to the state until they are rendered innocuous”. The goal of the public health officer is visualized.
  26. 26. • Immediately following is “on the prevention of epidemics” which is an excellent discussion of the origin and spread of epidemics and advice are as: avoiding all group gatherings, isolate people even indisposed; and much more in the same vein show how adequately Hahnemann had considered the problem of contagion.• An unusual dissertation on temperance is given in “on the satisfaction of our animal requirements.”
  27. 27. • “a nursery” displays great common sense about baby feeding and infant hygiene. It revels the rarity of disease due to “teething”, and is excellent even by present- day standards.• In “on the choice of Family physician” he suggests as family physician one who prescribes few, generally single medicines in their natural state.
  28. 28. DESCRIPTION OFKLOCKENBRING during his insanity From the deutschemonatsschrift, February, 1796
  29. 29. Essay on a new principle forascertaining the curative powers of drugs With a few glances at those hitherto employed From Hufeland‟s journal Vol. II, Part III 1796
  30. 30. Chemistry• It cannot directly point out the medicinal powers, yet it can do this indirectly.• …given examples may suffice to show that chemistry cannot be excluded from a share in the discovery of the medicinal powers of drugs. But…• Experiences shows that saltpetre, for instance, which our of the body is so highly antiseptic, shows exactly opposite qualities in putrid fever and in tendency to gangrene…• The reason I may mention though out of place here, is that it weakens the vital powers.
  31. 31. • Still worse for the materia medica was the advice of those who sought to ascertain the medicinal powers of its various agents by mixing the unknown drugs…• Even the injection of drugs into the blood vessels of animals is for the same reason a very heterogeneous and uncertain method.
  32. 32. No absolute specific remedy forindividual diseases…• …before I explain myself further, I must, in order to prevent misapprehension, distinctly declare that I do not expect, and do not believe, there can be a thoroughly specific remedy for any disease, of such and such a name, burdened with all the ramifications, concomitant affections and variations, which, in pathological works, are so often inconsiderately detailed as essential to its character, as invariably pertaining to it.
  33. 33. ..three methods…1. To remove or destroy the fundamental cause… • Killing the tape worm…etc2. Opposite • Constipation with laxatives • Palliative • Ever increasing doses… • Temporary
  34. 34. …the third way…• …I am not the singular in warning against this fatal practice… the better more discerning, and conscientious physicians, have from time to time sought for remedies for chronic disease.• NOTHING THEN REMAINS BUT TO TEST THE MEDICINES WE WISH TO INVESTIGATE ON THE HUMAN BODY ITSELF.• The necessity perceived in all the ages but the false path followed.• …thick books are to be found a monstrous number of mostly powerless medicines.
  35. 35. The true physician• …whose sole aim is to perfect his art, can avail himself of no other information respecting medicines, than…• First what is the pure action of each by itself on the human body?• Second what do observation of tits action in this or that simple or compels disease teaches us?
  36. 36. • A complete collection of such observations, with remarks on the degree of reliance to be placed on their reporters, would, if I mistake not, be the foundation stone of a materia medica, the sacred book of its revelation.• In them alone can the true nature, the real action of medicinal substances be methodically discovered; from them alone can we learn in what cases of disease they may be employed with success and certainty.

  42. 42. I myself felt the external hindrances to our art more than I could have wished; they continually beset my sphere of action; and I, too, long considered them insurmountable, and had almost made up my mind to despair, and to esteem my profession as but the sport of inevitable accident and insuperable obstacles, when the thought arose within me,“are not we physicians partly to blame for the complexity and the uncertainty of our art?”
  43. 43. • In acute diseases, the awakened instinct of the pt is often considerably wiser than physician who does not consult nature in his prescription.• In chronic diseases, We can not cure him by any system of diet, for his disease is not produced by any errors of the sort.• Why then, should we make any change?
  44. 44. • If it be necessary to make considerable changes in the diet and regimen, the ingenious physician will do well to mark what effect such changes will have on the disease, before he prescribes the mildest medicine.
  45. 45. I do not believe that it is the smallness of our knowledge, but only the faulty application of it, that hinders us from approaching, in medical science, nearer to certainty and simplicity. Similimum acts in all winds, all storms, all states of the barometer, all humidity of the atmosphere, during his now increased domestic, manufacturing and traveling business, in the midst of the oil vapor and that without any important change in his diet, or any in his place of house.
  46. 46. I have no hesitation in asserting that whenever two medicines are mingled together, they almost never produce each its own action on the system, but one almost always different from the action of both separately – an intermediate action, a neutral action – if I may be allowed to borrow the expression from chemical language.The more complex our receipts, the more obscure will it be in medicine.
  47. 47. Are we in earnest with our art?• Then let us make a brotherly compact, and all agree to give but one singe, simple remedy at a time, for every single disease, without making much alteration in the mode of life of our pt. and then let us use our eyes to see what effects this or that medicine has, how it does good, or how it fails. Is not this as simple a way of getting over the difficulty as that of Columbus with the egg?
  48. 48. • Dare I confess, that for many years I have never prescribed anything but a single medicine at once, and have never repeated the dose until the action of the former one had ceased.• Dare I confess, that, in this manner, I have been very successful, and given satisfaction to my patients, and seen things which otherwise I never would have seen.

  55. 55. Anonymous“…these observation are from the pen of one of the most distinguished of German physicians, who, however, as himself expresses it, „ as long as literary country makes the highways unsafe,‟ will not permit his name to appear, which, in my opinion is a good plan, in cases where reason aid not the authority of names are to decide. I must, however, observe that the author has read nothing either for or against the Brunonian system, and therefore we may be all the more certain that we have here the unprejudiced opinion on this subject of a practical physician of matured experience and reflection.”
  56. 56. Hufeland himself puts the following note to this criticism…

  58. 58. • Professional jealousy• ..ever sadder, ever more gloomy, without friendliness and good-fellowship among its professor, it will remain but a bungling art for another century.• Truth and the weal of humanity should be the only motto…• About cinchona experiences…• Those around me must be impressed with the belied that I am infallible, that I embrace the whole sphere of the art, as i hold a ball in my hand, that the inmost secrets of medical science lie clearly open to my all seeing eyes, like seed receptacles of an apple cut through the middle.
  59. 59. • Is this the way one colleague treats another in Germany?• Dr. Muller• It is undoubtedly true that truth penetrates even thorough the thickest clouds of prejudice, but the often too tedious conflict of the opposing elements conveys a disagreeable, a discouraging impression to the mind. Thus at the commencement of my career, on account of my discovery of the best anti venereal medicine, the soluble mercury, I was abused in the most vulgar manner.

What life is can only be known empirically from its phenomena and manifestations, but no conception of it can be formed by any metaphysical speculations a priori; what life is, in its actual essential nature, can never be ascertained nor even guessed, by mortals.• These abnormal matters that shew themselves in disease are consequently merely products of the disease itself, which, as long as the malady retains its present character, must of necessity be secreted, and thus constitute a portion of the morbid signs; they are merely effects and only manifestations of the existing internal ill-health.
  89. 89. …now because the disease are only dynamic derangements of our health and vital character, they cannot be removed by man otherwise than by means of agents and powers which also are capable of producing dynamical derangements of the human health……3 modes of practice……Be cured in a rapid, certain and permanent manner……Only homoeopathy can……apho-26…
