Tumours are not necessarily lethal but only a manifestation of the deranged life-force is something which remains to be understood by a large majority of the existing population. Given an early diagnosis & a well planned course of action, they are not only amenable to treatment but complete cure.
The author, in this treatise has beautifully accounted for the causation, clinical characteristics & the homeopathic management of various tumours with multiple case references. An introductory part on the therapeutic principles adds to the value of the book.
J.C. Burnett, M.D. was a contemporary with R. Hughes, R.E. Dudgeon & J.H. Clarke and was one of the most potent influence on evolution of British Homeopathy. Early in his career, he attended the clinic of Dr. John Drysdale at liver pool with friend A. Hawkes and J.H. Clarke that touched his fascination with organopathy. He is the acclaimed author of dozens books on homeopathy which includes "Consumption," "Liver," "Ringworm," "Gout," "Stunted Children," "Organ Diseases of Women," "Diseases of Skin," "Change of Life in Women" and "Enlarged Tonsils.
My standpoint is that a tumour is the product of the organism, and to be really cured the power to produce the same must be eliminated, got rid of; cutting it off merely rids the organism of the product, leaving the producing power where it was before, often the operative interference acting like pruning avine; z. e., the tumour-producing power is in- creased, and the fatal issue is brought nearer. The following case brings well into relief what I mean: Miss X., et. 49, still regular, came under my care on July 31, 1893. Formerly had bad eczema, was cured in a fortnight by an ointment; several years later—June, 1885— a tumour was excised from her left breast; said tumour recurred in the same breast and was, July, 1887, again removed together with the whole left breast; then a tumour came in the right breast and in January, 1888, the tumour and whole right breast were removed by a very neat operation., She came to me for a recurrence of the process in the middle of the scar of the right side with a good deal of in- flammation. The treatment lasted four years, ending during the course of the cure in eczema, and patient is actually in better health than ever before in her life and has now begun life anew as an amateur artist. The eczema is also well. What I am here concerned to demonstrate is not how this particular case was cured, but to make manifest that a tumour is really a vital growth arising from disease in the individual and is not itself the disease at all; the initial and subsequent eczemas and the tumours being one and the same thing; i. e., the products of the disease.
