Q & A with Adolph Lippe (The Organon)

Post by Glen on Wed May 06, 2009 1:11 am

Questions by a student in homoeopathy, with answers
(AD. Lippe)
The Organon, 1879, No 2 April


Q.-Is the maxim, Similia similibus curantur, a law, or is it a good rule to go by?
A.-The Law of Similars is a natural law, and the only law governing the healing-art.-Vide Hahnemann's Organon, secs. 53 and 54, and Hahnemannian Monthly, Jan. 1st, 1878, on "The Law of Similars."

Q.-If it is a law, and the only one, why should it not be applicable in all cases?
A.-A natural law cannot be a law at all if not applicable to all cases, and the Law of Similars is applicable to all cases of dynamic diseases.

Q.-Why should those who teach the application of this law recommend the use of the syringe in the treatment of Gonorrhoea?
Q.-Why should they recommend local treatment to be the best in the treatment of all parasitic diseases?
Q.-In the treatment of Cancrum Oris and Stomatitis Ulcerosa, why should they recommend a gargle of Potassae Chloratis?
A.-Those who teach and recommend such treatment, deviate from the teachings of Hahnemann. They offend common sense, which demands from Homoeopathists the administration of the similar remedy, and deprecates all local medicinal treatment. The experience of all those who are true to the Homoeopathic principles, has confirmed the truth of the teachings of the master, and they never find themselves compelled to go back on Homoeopathy, and apply local and pernicious means for a professed cure of an internal disease, by attacking the local manifestation of it. Such treatment belongs to Allopathy.

Q.-What should govern the prescriber in the selection of the potency?
A.-His own experience! The more correct his application of the science of the healing-art for practical purposes (in therapeutics) is, the smaller will be the dose he may find himself compelled to choose. PAGE 203

Q.-How often should a dose be repeated in an acute disease?
A.-The dose should never be repeated till the action of the last dose has been exhausted. In very acute cases the dose may act but half-an-hour, and at times a week, and longer. One dose may be all the medicine required to cure the case.

Q.-If the proper remedy is selected, do you always expect an aggravation of the disease?
A.-The disease proper is never aggravated by a properly chosen remedy; if that takes place, if our limited pathological knowledge shows us that the disease proper is developing its usual progress-showing symptoms, then we have not administered the right remedy. If new symptoms appear, not positively indicating the progress of the disease proper, they either belong to the known pathogenesis of the drug, or are new symptoms very much like those known to have been produced by the remedy, and they should be well considered, as characteristic symptoms of the aggravation-producing drug.

Q.-If an aggravation indicates that the proper remedy has been selected, does the absence of an aggravation signify that the proper remedy has not been selected?
A.-If no aggravation appears, then an improvement, if ever so small, will show that the right remedy was administered.

Q.-Is there a greater liability of an aggravation from the low potencies than from the high?
A.-The liability to aggravation is not dependant on the potency, but on the constitution of the sick, and the character of the disorder.

Q.-When an aggravation from a properly selected remedy is such as to endanger life, what steps should be taken to save life?
A.-That can never occur under strict Homoeopathic treatment. It can only occur after the administration of very large doses of drugs, and only when the rule, never to repeat the dose till the effects of the one last administered have been fully exhausted, is neglected. If this error has been committed, and alarming symptoms appear, then an antidote must be administered, and that antidote will always be a remedy correspondingly similar to the symptoms that have to be relieved.

I copied the above and it begs the question, again, that is on the other thread (and perhaps that is where I should pose that question):
how much of medical science is appropriate? I am all for learning more A&P, more Path, more Phys Exam but injections, invasions are as Lippe says: such treatment belongs to allopathy. It often hard to find an education in the conventional medical sciences that does not include the invasive techniques that have nothing whatsoever to do with homeopathy.

I am just babbling.
This is really great, Glen. Thanks for this tidbit of the day.
