The dawn of wisdom seems to strike Modern Medicine. Recently published article can be seen below, where the secondary counter action of Medicine described by Hahnemann has been found true/authenticated by a double blind study:
Proton-Pump Inhibitor Withdrawal May Cause Rebound Acid Hypersecretion

Proton-pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy for 8 weeks induces acid-related symptoms in healthy volunteers after withdrawal, according to the results of a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial reported in the July issue of Gastroenterology
"Rebound acid hypersecretion (RAHS) has been demonstrated after 8 weeks of treatment with a proton-pump inhibitor (PPI),"
write Christina Reimer, from Køge University Hospital, Copenhagen University in Copenhagen, Denmark, and colleagues. "If RAHS induces acid-related symptoms, this might lead to PPI dependency and thus have important implications.“
§ 64- During the primary action of the artificial morbific agents (medicines) on our healthy body, as seen in the following examples, our vital force seems to conduct itself merely in a passive (receptive) manner, and appears, so to say, compelled to permit the impressions of the artificial power acting from without to take place in it and thereby after its state of health; it then, however, appears to rouse itself again, as it were, and to develop (A) the exact opposite condition of health (counteraction, secondary action ) to this effect (primary action) produced upon it, if there be such an opposite, and that in as great a degree as was the effect (primary action) of the artificial morbific agent on it, and proportionate to its own energy; - or
(B) if there be not in nature a state exactly the opposite of the primary action, it appears to endeavor to indifferentiate itself, that is, to make its superior power available in the extinction of the change wrought in it from without (by the medicine), in the place of which it substitutes its normal state (secondary action, curative action).
