About the Book

This book offers an in-depth review of the mineral remedies in conformity with scientific chemistry, and the known effects of remedies both as poisonings and through provings. The book is focused on the constitutional as well as numerous mineral remedies, their biochemistry and their clinical picture. The unique phenomenon of the Law of Octaves is also being explained by Dr Otto Lesser in this book, as each element in a group exhibited similar drug effects during their proving. It is based on the study of drugs analysing the groups bearing the similar symptomatology, as Alkalis (including Potassium, Sodium, Lithium, Ammonium, Magnesium, Calcium, Strontium, Barium), Halogens, Sulphur group, Nitrogen group, Boron-Aluminium group, Carbon group, Heavy metals, etc. Also, a therapeutic index mentioning the main remedies for various pathological conditions is being arranged in an alphabetical order in the end.


A TEXT-BOOK of materia medica should not satisfy itself with the mere narration of available facts nor with some kind of arrangement. It should be arranged so that its accuracy is manifestly conformable with reality. In our case where we are concerned with sci- entific material which has long been completely closed to the vast majority of physicians, a mutual basis for understanding first had to be created.

How far I have succeeded in accomplishing this task by the previous part will be determined by the recep- tion accorded the present section.

This part will be uniform even though it was started at the time the first edition of my "Fundamentals of Therapeutics" appeared. For ten years the work has developed together with my medical activities. The essential thoughts were communicated first at the meet- ing of the German Central Society of Homeopathic Physicians at Bonn, in 1925, and in greater detail at the international postgraduate medical courses at the Stuttgart Homeopathic Hospital, 1926, 1928, 1930. I would have preferred to postpone the publication even longer in order to more thoroughly elaborate the factual material which is very extensive and which is con- stantly increasing. Yet there finally seemed to me a more urgent necessity in that this book might bring enlightenment in a difficult but practical and important study.
