many of the modern day drugs that are in common use

Homoeopathy is a system of medicine founded
by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. It is based on
the law of similars: similia similibus curentur, or similars
cure similars. At the time of Hahnemann, the popular
medication was Peruvian bark (from which quinine is
now made). Hahnemann found that people who took
it over a long time developed symptoms similar to
malaria for which it was given to cure. He tried it on
himself, then on his family, and then on other people
and found that this was the basis for a scientific law of
Homoeopathy is the most scientific system of
medicine known, because it is based upon a scientific
law that does not change.
Homoeopathy has also proved to the world that
it is not necessary to take large doses of medicine. If
the medicine is correct, it will act in very small doses.
In fact, it often acts better in very minute doses than in
A homoeopathic physician is an M.D., and has to
take everything in his course of study that those of he
regular school do, plus homoeopathy. Homoeopathy
is more popular in England than it is in the United States,
and in England all homoeopathic physicians have taken
six years of regular medicine and then a postgraduate
course in homoeopathy. Homoeopathy is more and
more becoming considered as a specialty in medicine.
The definition of Homoeopathy accepted by the American Institute of Homoeopahty is, "A homoeopathic
physician is one who has added to his knowledge of
medicine a special knowledge of homoeopathic
therapeutics, and observes the law of similars. All that
pertains to the great field of medical learning is his by
tradition, by inheritance and by right."
Homoeopathic remedies are prepared in the
decimal and centesimal dilutions. The decimal system
is one part of the drug to nine parts of the dilutant.
Thus, the 1 x dilution is one part of the drug to 9 of the
dilutant. The 3x is one part of the drug to 999 of the
dilutatn. The centesimal is one part fo the drug to 99
of the diluting fluid, or vehicle, and on up. These
dilutions must be properly prepared with the proper
amount of succussion or trituration (grinding).
Beginners should use the 3x or 6x, as a rule.
First, I shall give brief indications for 33 of the
commoner homoeopathic remedies, frequently
indicated in the less serious acute ailments. Then, I
shall give the various conditions and the remedies I
have found most frequently indicated in these
conditions. The remedy most often indicated will be
in CAPITALS, the next most frequently indicated will
be in italics, and those less often indicated in ordinary
type. When you look up a certain condition, you should
read over the list of remedies given and see which one
covers your case best. Homoeopathy has no remedy
for a particular disease, but the remedy must be
fitted to the individual patient. To acquire a thorough
knowledge of homoeopathy to give the best results,
especially in difficult cases, requires years of study.
This little treatise covers only briefly a few of
the over one thousand remedies used in good
homoeopathic prescribing, and necessarily, only a few
important symptoms and indications are given for each
remedy. Many of the homoeopathic remedies have an
entire book written on the one remedy.
