Hahnemann's Materia Medica: Materia Medica Pura & Chronic Diseases Combined & Rearranged (In 3 Volumes)

Samuel Hahnemann (Author)
Synopsis It would be a mere vain pretensions to express anything about Materia Medica Pura and Chronic Diseases, which are both original writings and Provings of Dr. Hahnemann and occupy magnificent place among the literary luminaries of the world. These two great works of medical literature challenged the traditional school of medicine of Hahnemann’s time. The four volumes of the above-mentioned manual have been the best referring material of every successful homoeopath for around one hundred and seventy years. For so many years there have been suggestions and requests from the profession to rearrange and combine this valuable work of Hahnemann, and thus making it more useful and interesting to go through. Finally this daunting task was taken up by Dr. P. Sivaraman to whom we are profusely thankful. He worked very hard at this huge project for more than 2 years and his untiring labor has given us a very sweet fruit in the form of Hahnemann’s Materia Medica (Materia Medica Pura & Chronic Diseases Combined and Rearranged). This new manual is in 3 volumes. The original order of symptoms shown in the Author’s Preface of Materia Medica Pura has been rearranged according to the schema of Kent’s Repertory of the Homoeopathic Materia Medica. The old serial number of the symptoms has been retained but marked at the last of each symptoms and the new serial number is marked at the beginning of each symptom. The abbreviations of homoeopaths who assisted Hahnemann in his Provings have been made uniform. To increase the utility of the book B. Jain has added a Clinical Index at the end of each volume. A homoeopathic teacher, student or practitioner—whoever he may be-can ill-afford to do without a copy of Hahnemann’s Materia Medica. It is going to be an indispensable book for all including neophytes and laymen.

About the author

Samuel Hahnemann

Samuel Hahnemann was the founder of Homoeopathy. He established the fundamental principles of the science and art of Homoeopathy. He is called the Father of Experimental Pharmacology because he was the first physician to prepare medicines in a specialized way; proving them on healthy human beings, to determine how the medicines acted to cure diseases. Before Hahnemann, medicines were given on speculative indications, mainly on the basis of authority without experimental verification. Hahnemann discovered the remedial powers of drugs and inert substances such as gold, platinum, silica, vegetable charcoal, lycopodium, etc. By preparing the medicines through potentization, these inert and insoluble substances became soluble in alcohol or water and were charged with medicinal force. Dr. Hahnemann espoused the law of cure known as "Similia Similibus Curentur", or "Like Cures Like". This means that a remedy that produces symptoms in a healthy person will cure those same symptoms when manifested by a person in a diseased state. This law of cure has been verified by millions of homoeopaths all over the world since the time of Hahnemann. Hahnemann discovered the primary and secondary actions of remedies. The primary action results from the first encounter between the vital force and the external agent, and the secondary action is a result of the vital force's reaction to the symptoms of that primary encounter. This discovery led him to the curative powers of poisonous substances. Dr. Hahnemann described the different aspects of 'acute' and 'chronic' diseases. Acute diseases are transitory; they have a beginning and an end, whereas the chronic diseases are co-existent with life. Either they are present in a manifest or a latent state. From this work came the chronic miasms of Psora, Syphilis, and Sycosis. Dr. Hahnemann was the progenitor of several modern medical approaches. Deeming the treatment of insane patients to be cruel and harmful, he advised a humane treatment for the insane. He cured many insane patients with homeopathy, and became famous for this success. Dr. Hahnemann was quick to recognize poor hygiene as a contributory cause to the spread of disease. His success with cholera and typhoid fever was in part due to this recognition. Hahnemann also emphasized the importance of nursing, diet, bed rest, and isolation of patients during epidemic diseases. Hahnemann described 'Noxious' principles as the precursors of certain disease states. Dr. Hahnemann treated thousands of difficult and chronic cases that defied the best care from allopaths all over Europe. Thus, he became so famous that physicians from Europe and America came to him for coaching in the new science and art of healing, called Homoeopathy.
