Hahnemannian diseases classification first part

Hahnemannian diseases classification concept according to the direction in organon of medicine; start (apho.no. 72-81). Here we try to make study in fraction on it.

Apho. No. 72: (general survey of acute diseases)

  1. Acute diseases: “the diseases to which man is liable are either rapid morbid processes of the abnormally deranged vital force, which have a tendency to finish their course more or less quickly, but always in a moderate time these are termed acute diseases.”

 Vital parts: (criteria of acute diseases)

  1. Abnormally deranged vital force.
  2. In a rapid morbid processes.
  3. Tendency to finish their course.
  4. More or less quickly.
  5. In moderate time.

    2. Chronic diseases: ” they are diseases of such a character that , with small, often imperceptible beginnings, dynamically deranged the living organism to deviate from healthy condition, in such a way that the automatic life energy, called vital force, whose office is to preserve the health only opposes to them at unsuitable, unless resistance, but it is unable of itself to extinguish them, but must helplessly suffer itself to be ever more and more abnormally deranged, until at length the organism is destroyed; these are termed chronic diseases. they are caused by dynamic infection with a chronic miasm.”

 

Vital parts: (criteria of chronic disease)

  1. Imperceptible beginning.
  2. Dynamically deranged the living organism.
  3. To deviate from healthy condition.
  4. It is unable of itself to extinguish them.
  5. Must helpless suffer itself to be ever more and more abnormally deranged.
  6. Until at length the organism is destroyed.
  7. They are caused by dynamic infection with a chronic miasm.

Apho. No. 73:

“as regards acute diseases, they are either of such a kind as attack human beings individually, the exciting cause being injurious influences to which they were particularly exposed. Excesses in food, or an insufficient supply of it, severe physical impressions, chills, over heating dissipation, strains etc. or physical irritations, mental emotions, and the like, are exciting causes of such acute febrile affections; in reality, however, they are generally only a transient explosion of latent Psora, which spontaneously returns to is dormant state, if the acute disease were not of too violent a character and were soon quelled. Or they are of such a kind as attack several persons at the same time, here and there (sporadically) by means of meteoric or telluric influences and injurious agents the susceptibility for being morbidly affected by which is possessed by only a few persons at one time. Alied to these are those diseases in which many persons are attacked with very similar sufferings from the same cause (epidemically). These diseases generally become infectious (contagious) when they prevail among thickly congregated masses of human beings. Hence arise fevers in each instance of a peculiar nature, they setup in all those they affect an identical morbid process, which when left to itself terminates in a moderate period of time in death or recovery. The calamities of war, inundations and famine are not infrequently their exciting causes and producers sometimes they are peculiar acute miasms which recur in the same manner.(hence known by same some traditional name) which either attack persons but once in a life time, as the small pox, measles, whooping cough, the ancient, smooth, bright red scarlet fever of Sydenham, the mumps etc. or such as recur frequently in pretty much the same manner, the plague of the Levant, the yellow fever of the sea-coast, the Asiatic cholera etc.

Vital parts:

  1. Attack human being.

a)Several persons at the same time.

b)Here and there sporadically.

c)Many persons are attacked with very similar sufferings from the same cause (epidemically).

2.Causative facts:

  1. Transient explosion of latent Psora. By exciting cause.
  2. Acute miasm.
  3. Types: a) individual; b) sporadic; c) epidemic.

Apho.no.74: (artificial chronic disease)

“Among chronic diseases we must still, alas! Reckon those so commonly met with, artificially produced in allopathic treatment by the prolonged use of violent heroic medicines in large and increasing doses, by the abuse of calomel, corrosive sublimate, mercurial ointment, nitrate of silver, iodine and its ointments, opium, valerian,, cinchona bark and quinine, foxglove, prussic acid, Sulphur and sulphuric acid, perennial, purgatives, venesections, shedding stream of blood,, leeches, issues, setons etc. where by the vital energy is sometimes weakened to an unmerciful extent, sometimes, if it do not succumb, gradually abnormally deranged ( by each substance in a peculiar manner) in such a way that, in order to maintain life against these inimical and destructive attacks, it must produce a revolution in the organism, and either destructive deprive  some part of its irritability and sensibility, or exalt these to an excessive degree, cause dilatation or contraction, relaxation or induration or even total destruction of certain parts, and develop faulty organic alterations here and there in the interior or the exterior ( cripple the body internally or externally) in order to preserve the organism from complete destruction of life by the ever-renewed, hostile assaults of such destructive forces.”

Apho.no.75:

“These inroads on human health effected by the allopathic non- healing art (more particularly in recent time) are of all chronic diseases, the most deplorable, the most incurable, and I regret to add that it is apparently impossible to discover or to hit upon any remedies for their cure, when they have reached any considerable height.”

Vital word:

  1. Causative fact:
  2. Allopathic treatment.
  3. Events:
  4. Prolonged use of violent heroic medicines in large and increasing doses.
  5. Abuse of calomel, corrosive sublimate, mercurial ointment, nitrate of silver, iodine and its ointments, opium, valerian, cinchona bark and quinine, foxglove, prussic acid, Sulphur and sulphuric acid, perennial, purgatives, venesections, shedding stream of blood, leeches, issues, setons etc.
  6. Where by the vital energy is sometimes weakened to an unmerciful extent.
  7. Convert in miasmatic nature: (Event)
  8. Sometimes, if it does not succumb, gradually abnormally deranged (by each substance in a peculiar manner) in such a way that, in order to maintain life against these inimical and destructive attacks.
  9. It must produce a revolution in the organism, and either destructive deprive some part of its irritability and sensibility, or exalt these to an excessive degree, cause dilatation or contraction, relaxation or induration or even total destruction of certain parts.
  10. Develop faulty organic alterations here and there in the interior or the exterior (cripple the body internally or externally) in order to preserve the organism from complete destruction of life by the ever-renewed, hostile assaults of such destructive forces.

Hahnemann’s interpretation:

  1. On human health effected by the allopathic non- healing art.
  2. (more particularly in recent time) are of all chronic diseases.
  3. The most deplorable.
  4. The most incurable.

And

  1. I regret to add that it is apparently impossible to discover.

Or

  1. To hit upon any remedies for their cure.
  2. When they have reached any considerable height.
