The Genius of Homeopathy
Lectures and Essays on Homeopathic Philosophy
By Dr Stuart M. CLOSE
To Hahnemann belongs the honor of having been the first physician to connect biology and psychology with physics in a practical syst
When Hahnemann, after formulating his principal concepts of Life or Mind in its relation to the physical organism, began to experiment with the action of drugs upon healthy human subjects. Observing the subjective as well as the objective phenomena, he opened up a new field of research and laid the foundation for a true science and art of medicine and psychology. Prom that time forward, and for the first time, man could be studied and treated scientifically as an individual, in all his personal and peculiar actions and reactions.
The philosophy of Hahnemann is based upon and includes not only the physiological and pathological actions and reactions of man as a physical organism, but of man as spiritual and psychical being; for it includes and utilizes the mental, the subjective and the functional phenomena as they are developed under the influence of hygeopoietic and pathogenetic agencies. In this respect homâ”¼Ã´opathy differs radically from and is infinitely superior to all other systems of therapeutics; and this is solely because it recognizes Life or Mind as an entity; as the primary, spiritual power or principle which creates and sustains the physical organism and is the primary cause of all its actions and reactions. Its working principle is the universal Law of Reciprocal Action, otherwise known as the law of balance, compensation, rhythm, polarity, vibration, or action and reaction, all of which signify a principle operative alike in the physical, mental and spiritual realms. In its out-working it is essentially the Law of Love, for it is always beneficient, always creative, always harmonizing. Hence, the consistent practitioner of homâ”¼Ã´opathy never uses, and has no need to use, any irritating, weakening, depressing, infecting, intoxicating or injurious agent of any kind in the treatment of the sick, nor to violate the integrity of the body by forcibly introducing medicinal agents by other than the natural orifices and channels.
