    1. 1. A COLLECTION OF FRAGMENTS OF PURE MATERIA MEDICA from ‘ORGANON OF THE HEALING ART’ Gyandas G. Wadhwani MD(Hom) Chief Medical Officer (Homoeopathy); Senior Lecturer (Organon of Medicine & Homoeopathic Philosophy), Dr B. R. Sur Homoeopathic Medical College, Hospital & Research Centre Directorate of ISM & Homoeopathy, Govt of NCT of Delhi, India. Email: homoeopathygyan@gmail.com drgyanwadhwani@yahoo.co.in
    2. 2. IT IS POSSIBLE TO FIND IN ORGANON, THE HIGHEST WISDOM OR FOLLY AS PER THE NATURAL TENDENCY OF THE READER! August Karl Gustav Bier (1861-1949) German surgeon & Pioneer of Spinal Anaesthesia
    3. 3. ‘Organon of the Healing Art’ is a book that is essential for any medical practitioner/ physician who intends to master the art of healing.
    4. 4. The word ‘Organon’ is derived from latin word, Organum, which means an instrument of learning/ knowing. It is the failure to grasp this true meaning which has made the study of Organon tedious and redundant.
    5. 5. James Tyler Kent, An address preliminary to the study of homoeopathics. Homoeopathician 1912; 1:6 ..the masters of these living doctrines and the materia medica have been constant readers of this great work. Not one of the great prescribers has ever claimed a discovery not fully set forth in this work, but in all their greatest accomplishments have said that they based their success upon the Organon… …
    6. 6. James Tyler Kent An address preliminary to the study of homoeopathics. Homoeopathician 1912; 1:6 ….It is the first book for the student to read and the last for the old and busiest physician to ponder over. When Lippe, Wells and scores of others advocated a continuous reading of this book during their long careers, should we not likewise look upon it with a feeling of profound respect? ….
    7. 7. James Tyler Kent, An address preliminary to the study of homoeopathics. Homoeopathician 1912; 1:6 …. Should we not crave for the hidden truths that has made these faithful followers of law so successful?To whom would a rational man apply for light when desiring to follow law in healing the sick and measuring out uses to man? Naturally to Hahnemann and his faithful adherents, and not to those who smile at what they choose to consider ravings of an aged man…
    8. 8. Organon is not just a book of philosophy, it is a compendium of wisdom of Hahnemann’s lifetime. It is a chronicle of his pure observations, scientific medical experimentation, discoveries, re- discoveries, convictions, successes, failures, induction, his constant endeavors to improvise, develop and establish the ‘art of healing’ for the posterity.
    9. 9. This is the reason why the esteemed founder of homoeopathy, Hahnemann, revised it six times. We give below a compilation of fragments of pure materia medica from Hahnemann’s organon.
    10. 10. It is well known that Hahnemann proved and published pure effects of 100 remedies (including Psorinum) during his lifetime. But Hahnemann, in order to establish homoeopathy, also laid the the foundation of future materia medica by providing a compilation of toxicological and curative effects of numerous other remedies that he did not prove in his lifetime.
    11. 11. His worthy successors, who diligently read organon, also picked up his clues for further enlargement of pure materia medica. They not only proved those remedies but also benefitted from his practical tips on usage of remedies in difficult or special conditions.
    12. 12. FRAGMENTS OF PURE MATERIA MEDICA
    13. 13. INTRODUCTION, PG 4, F.N. 2 In a case of sudden derangement of the stomach, with constant disgusting eructations with the taste of the vitiated food, generally accompanied by depression of spirits, cold hands and feet, etc Such a derangement of the stomach is usually of dynamic origin, caused by mental disturbance (grief, fright, vexation), a chill, over-exertion of the mind or body immediately after eating, often after even a moderate meal.. ....a single time at a globule the size of a mustard seed, moistened with highly diluted pulsatilla juice
    14. 14. INTRODUCTION, PG 5, F.N. Even the acid gastric acid, to eructations of which patients of chronic diseases are not infrequently subject… …its dynamic cause is removed by a very small dose of a high dilution of sulphuric acid, or still better, if iit is of frequent recurence, by the employment of minutest doses of antipsoric remedies..
    15. 15. INTRODUCTION, PG 5, F.N 3 In general inflammatory fevers, in acute pleurisy… …may be removed by the smallest dose of a homogeneous (homoeopathic) medicine, as, for instance, by a small globule of the decillion-fold dilution of aconite juice, with abstinence from vegetable acids..
    16. 16. INTRODUCTION, PG 10, F.N 1 Vermicular diseases But the presence of these is always dependent on a general taint of the constitution (the psoric), joined to an unhealthy mode of living. Let the latter be removed and former cured homoeopathically.. …the morbid symptoms of patients suffering from tapeworm … are rapidly relieved (homoeopathically) by the smallest dose of tincture of male-fern root (Filix mas aspidium)..
    17. 17. APPENDIX, PG 157, ADDITIONAL INFORMATION…Vermicular dieases “The tapeworm lives in the human body which has not been made more ill by unsuitable medicines ( the tape-worm is most frequently met with in subjects below the years of puberty-rather less frequently at other ages ) for a few years only, to wit, as long as the contents of the bowels are so constituted as to contain nourishment for the worm. But if the constitution of its human host gradually changes, if he becomes stronger and healthier, then his intestinal contents no longer afford sustenance for the tape-worm; it diminishes in size and at last goes away altogether, as though starved…
    18. 18. … or worn out by age. Hence it follows that the physician can pursue no better treatment for the tape-worm than to promote this necessary alteration in the body by the homoeopathic, radical cure of the chronic malady, which betrays itself by those acute symptoms curable by fern-root and by other signs, and when they are cured the tape- worm disappears of its own accord (starved or grown old), and the patient even should he be attacked by indisposition, feels nothing more of the worm.”
    19. 19. INTRODUCTION, PG 26, F.N 1 ..after a chill… during the cold stage of the catarrhal fever.. .. to drink…an infusion of elder flowers (Sambucus nigra)..
    20. 20. INTRODUCTION, PG 26, F.N 1 …there are anxious, often ineffectual, efforts to urinate in little children, ..in ordinary gonorrhoea, which is well known by the very painful, frequent and almost ineffectual attempts to make water.... Parsley juice (Petroselinum)…the fresh juice of this plant has the power of causing, in healthy persons, a painful, almost fruitless, urging to urinate & consequently cures homoeopathically?
    21. 21. INTRODUCTION, PG 27, F.N. ..causes great secretion of mucus in the bronchia and fauces… combated the so- called mucous angina pimpernal root (Pimpinella saxifraga)
    22. 22. INTRODUCTION, PG 27, F.N. ..causes and cures metrorrhagia.. Leaves of savine (Sabina)
    23. 23. INTRODUCTION, PG 27, F.N. ...constipation from incarcerated hernia and in ileus….dangerous comatose state in acute fevers.. Opium
    24. 24. INTRODUCTION, PG 27, F.N. ...non venereal ulcers of fauces… Mercury
    25. 25. F.N. APHORISM 16, 6TH EDN. PG 36 Most severe disease may be produced by sufficient disturbance of the vital force through the imagination and also cured by the same means.
    26. 26. F.N. APHORISM 17, PG 37 A warning dream, a superstitious fancy, or a solemn prediction that death would occur at a certain day or at a certain hour, has not unfrequently produced all the signs of commencing and increasing disease, of approaching death and death itself at the hour announced, which could not happen without the simultaneous production of inward change (corresponding to the state observed externally); and hence in such cases all the morbid signs indicative of….
    27. 27. …approaching death have frequently been dissipated by an identical cause, by some cunning deception or persuasion to a belief in the contrary, and health suddenly restored, which could not have happened without the removal, by means of this moral remedy, of the internal and external morbid change that threatened death.
    28. 28. F.N. APHORISM 33, PG 42-43 …smooth scarlatina of Sydenham still occasionally prevailed epidemically among children….all the children who took in time a very small dose of belladonna remained unaffected by this highly infectious infantile disease…
    29. 29. F.N. APHORISM 160, PG 98 The facial eruption that viola tricolor cured was aggravated by it at the commencement of its action….. The bark of elm (Ulmus fulva) cures most certainly those skin diseases which it increases at the beginning of its action…
    30. 30. F.N. APHORISM 183, PG 103 In cases where the patient (which, however, happens excessively seldom in chronic, but not infrequently in acute, diseases) feels very ill, although his symptoms are very indistinct, so that this state may be attributed to the benumbed state of the nerves, which does not permit the patient’s pains and sufferings to be distinctly perceived, this torpor of the internal sensibility is removed by opium, and in its secondary action the symptoms of the disease become distinctly apparent.
    31. 31. F.N. APHORISM 213, PG 112 Thus Aconite will seldom or never effect a rapid or permanent cure in a patient of a quiet, calm, equable disposition; and just as little will Nux vomica be serviceable where the disposition is mild and phlegmatic, Pulsatilla where it is happy, gay and obstinate, or Ignatia where it is imperturbable and disposed neither to be frightened nor vexed.
    32. 32. APHORISM 234, PG 118 Those apparently non-febrile, typical, periodically recurring morbid states… always belong to the chronic diseases…. sometimes necessary to employ as an intermediate remedy a small dose of potentised solution of cinchona bark, in order to extinguish completely their intemittent type.
    33. 33. F.N. APHORISM 246, 5TH EDN. PG 124-125 …. But the vital force shows the greatest resistance to salutary action upon itself of the strongly indicated sulphur, and even exhibits manifest aggravation of the chronic disease, though the sulphur be given in the very smallest dose, though only a globule of the size of mustard seed moistened with tinct. Sulph X° be smelt, …
    34. 34. …. if the sulphur have formerly (it may be years since) been improperly given allopathically in larger doses. This is one lamentable circumstance that renders the best medicinal treatment of chronic diseases almost impossible… …
    35. 35. …. In such cases we have only to let the patient smell a single time strongly at a globule the size of a mustard seed moistened with mercur metall. X, and allow this olfaction to act for about nine days, in order to make the vital force again disposed to permit the sulphur (at least the olfaction of tinct. Sulph. X°) to exercise beneficial effect…
    36. 36. APHORISM 234, PG 118 Those apparently non febrile, typical, periodically recurring morbid states….. always belong to the chronic diseases, mostly to those that are purely psoric, are but seldom complicated with syphilis,….it is sometimes necessary to employ as an intermediate remedy a small dose of potentized solution of cinchona bark, in order to extinguish completely their intermittent type.
    37. 37. APHORISM 242, PG 121 If, however, in such an epidemic intermittent fever the first paroxysms have been left uncured, or if the patients have been weakened by improper allopathic treatment…. We have now to do with psoric intermittent fever only, and this will generally be subdued by minute and rarely repeated doses of sulphur or hepar sulphuris in a high potency.
    38. 38. APHORISM 244, PG 122 …,and yet a healthy man may in his youth become habituated even to marshy districts and remain in good health, provided he preserves a faultless regimen and his system is not lowered by want, fatigue or pernicious passions….one of two very small doses of a highly potentized solution of cinchona bark would… speedily free him from the disease…
    39. 39. APHORISM 251, PG 129 There are some medicines (e.g., ignatia, also bryonia and rhus, and sometimes belladonna) whose power of altering man's health consists chiefly in alternating actions …. Should the practitioner find, on prescribing one of these,….no improvement follows, he will in most cases soon effect his object by giving (in acute diseases, even within a few hours) a fresh and equally small dose of the same medicine.
    40. 40. F.N. APHORISM 282, 6TH EDN. PG 144 The rule to commence the homoeopathic treatment of chronic diseases with the smallest possible doses and only gradually augment them is subject to a notable exception in the treatment of the three miasms while they still effloresce on the skin….

    101. 101. This is just a small compilation of one of the hidden treasures of Organon. A thorough study shall help us discover many more.
    102. 102. As Dr J. N. Majumdar used to say, ‘Whenever in doubt, refer to the Organon and you shall find the answer.’ The advice seems to have been taken seriously by a man who is as far from homoeopathy as can be and yet so near!
    103. 103. …A human being's vitality resides in his immune system, also referred to as the vital force or the life force in homoeopathy. This life force, unlike our physical (material) organs, is a medium of (immaterial) energy. We can neither see it nor touch it, yet every doctor believes that it exists and regulates our health. The immaterial life force of an organisation, as distinct from all its material resources, is its strategy..... Rajiv Bajaj (Investment banker, investment strategy and financial planner)
    104. 104. .... I believe most organisations fail because a less-than-vital strategy inside them makes them susceptible to the inimical conditions outside them. In homoeopathic terms, the external conditions are only the exciting cause of their disease; the fundamental cause lies within them. Thus the best advice that i ever got was upon reading the Organon of edicine by Dr Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homoeopathy… Rajiv Bajaj (Investment banker, investment strategy and financial planner)
