Creating Waves of Awareness
All non-surgical diseases belong to one of the following classes:
(A) Acute, (B) Chronic, (C) Those due to the use of drugs, living under unhealthy conditions.
1. Acute diseases are self-limited and provided on treatment is pursued they and in resolution or death. This being so an acute disease can have no secondary consequence, the so called secondary consequence being manifestations of one of the chronic miasma roused into activity by the acute disease.
2. Acute diseases may be stopped at any stage by the similar remedy.
3. In acute infectious diseases all infection ceases as soon as the simillimum is given.
4. The best prophylactic in acute disease is the epidemic remedy.
5. When a trivial acute disease supervenes during the treatment of a chronic one, it is advisable to use the indicated remedy in a low potency; for if this is done it will often be found after the acute disease has been cured that the deep acting remedy has not been interfered with by the short actin one and that it still continues to act.
6. After the cure of the acute supervening disease it is advisable before repeating the remedy for the chronic disease to make sure hat the chronic disease has not been modified by the treatment of the acute one or by the acute disease itself and not to call for a different remedy from that formerly needed.
7. When the acute disease has been modified by allopathic or inappropriate homeopathic remedies it is usually advisable to prescribe for the case as it now stand rather than according to the original symptoms.
8. Acute exacerbation of active chronic disease must be treated in a different way from that of an acute supervening disease provided any remedy is required at all. Frequently the acute complement of the deep acting remedy required by the chronic disease is the suitable one but if only an anti-psoric is called for it is better not to give any medicine.
9. Commonly when the chronic disease is only partially active as shown by the patient being apparently in good health except that slight causes give rise to frequent acute attacks of illness the knowledge of the remedy for these acute manifestations will enable us to select its complementary deep acting remedy and so permit the cure of the chronic under lying disease.
1. Chronic diseases are characterized by their progressing from without inwards and from below upwards and that while the symptoms may vary they never disappear in the reverse order to that in which they came.
2. So far as is at present known there are only three chronic diseases " Psora, Syphilis and Sycosis. These diseases may be active or latent. They may be present in three ways.
(a) A SINGLE MIASM.
(b) TWO OR THREE MIASMS CO-EXISTING BUT SEPARATE AND ONLY ONE ACTIVE AT A TIME.
(C) TWO OR THREE OF THE MIASMS MAY FORM A COMPLEX AND THIS MAY BE FURTHER COMPLICATED BY A DRUG DISEASE.
If two or more miasms may form a complex the proper remedy will dissociate them and then the most active must be attached but the greatest caution is needed as a mistake may cause them again to combine and the will never again to combine and they will never again separate.
3. These chronic diseases often remain latent for long periods but are apt to be roused into activity by acute diseases unhealthy surroundings grief.
While latent their symptoms are very similar and the patient may only feel ill in an indefinite way. The nosodes of these diseases are frequently of great service in rationalizing the symptoms of such cases and thus enabling the appropriate remedy to be found.
4. These disease are always taken at the stage in which they exist in the already infected person. For example the wife of a man with secondary syphilis will take the disease at that stage and not in the primary or chancre stage
5. A man with syphilis or sycosis may fail to infect his wife if she is suffering from some other but dissimilar protecting, chronic disease such as phthisis, for dissimilar diseases repel one another.
