 Aphorism 6- THE UNPREJUDICED OBSERVER The unprejudiced observer- well aware of the futility of transcendental speculations which can receive on confirmation from experience- be his powers of penetration ever so great, takes note of nothing in every individual disease except the changes in the health of the body and of the (morbid phenomenon, accidents, symptoms) which can be perceived externally by means of the senses; that is to say, the notices only deviations from the former healthy state of the now diseased individual, which are felt by the patient himself, remarked by those around him and observed by the physician. All these are signs represent the disease in its whole extent, that is together they form the true and only conceivable portrait of the disease.   
In continuation to the qualities of a physician, Dr Hahnemann narrates how important it is to pay attention to the causes of any particular sickness, in order to work towards curing the patients, both in acute and chronic diseases.  ACUTE DISEASES: These are the complaints of short duration or of a recent time and the particulars of the most probable exciting cause are to be enquired while attending the current sign and symptoms of the person.  CHRONIC DISEASES: These are complaints of long durations or the problems which are recurring and present with various sign and symptoms which can be mixed-up.  Here, it is very important to know the most significant points in the whole history of the presenting disease. This enables the physician to discover the fundamental cause, which is generally due to a chronic miasm. It is vital to look into the accessory circumstances of the patient and establish the exciting and maintaining causes in order to provide a management plan. 
The knowledge is indispensable for a true practitioner of healing art, the physician who aspires to treat judiciously and rationally.  Dr Hahnemann has outlined the peculiarities of knowledge that a physician should possess.   APHORISM 3: If the physician clearly perceives what is to be cured in diseases, that is to say, in every individual case of disease (knowledge of disease, indication), if he clearly perceives what is curative in medicines, that is to say, in each individual medicine (knowledge of medicinal powers), and if he knows how to adapt, according to clearly defined principles, what is curative in medicines to what he has discovered to be undoubtedly morbid in the patient, so that the recovery must ensue- to adapt it, as well in respect to the suitability of medicine most appropriate according to its mode of action to the case before him (choice of remedy, the medicine indicated), as also in respect to the exact mode of preparation and quantity of it required (proper dose)
 First is to know what is the mission of a physician. Aphorism 1 starts by defining it as to restore the sick to health, to cure. Next is to understand what is meant by cure. Dr Hahnemann defines it in the following Aphorism.  He describes the qualities of the ideal cure, which should be the mission of a physician: 1. Rapid- Disease is a suffering. The sooner a person is relieved of his suffering, the better for him. 2. Gentle- The method of cure should be as painless and harmless as possible.  3. Permanent- Cure is worthy if the health is restored permanently.  4. Holistic- Removal of the state of suffering in its whole extent implies the holistic concept.  5. Harmless- Cure should be effected in most harmless way. 6. Based on scientific principles- It should be deduced from observations, generalisations and experimental verifications and the therapeutic practice must mot be based on an empirical guesswork.  These criteria for an ideal cure were first enunciated by a Greek physician n
Dr Hahnemann's "ORGANON" is the high water-mark of medical philosophy.   This guides a physician on how to practice the art of restoring a sick to health. Hahnemann continuously revised his guidelines in order to refine the treatment for better of his patients. These guidelines are written as aphorisms and will be useful for anyone seeking a sound health. Presented here is the last and the final edition of Organon, which was completed by Dr Hahnemann in 1842 was published in 1921, long after his death. This is comprised of 291 aphorisms.

Origins of Homeopathy

  All this modern material ties in very neatly with the main concerns that Hahnemann immersed himself in two centuries ago.  What Hahnemann was primarily appalled and disgusted by and which he most vigorously and passionately opposed were strong doses of drugs, bloodletting and compound drug mixtures conceived and employed along the Galenic lines of contraries.  These were the biggest objections he made against the medicine of his day.  He was implacably opposed to them because he could see from first-hand daily experience that they were dismally ineffective measures to be employed against sickness, and they were also harmful and damaging to patients as well; they caused more suffering.  Thus, he stood alone in having the courage and intellectual honesty to abandon in disgust such a medical practice, and to commit himself instead to a search for more gentle, benign and effective therapeutic measures.   Who could possibly stand up and condemn him for doing that? -Peter Morrell (Medical

Discovery of Homeopathy

The discovery of homeopathy is empirical and credited to Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, who made this groundbreaking breakthrough in the late 18th century. Samuel Hahnemann was born in 1755 in Saxony, Germany, and he began his medical career as a traditional physician. Hahnemann's journey towards the discovery of homeopathy began when he questioned the conventional medical practices of his time. His dissatisfaction with the harmful treatments of his time led him to abandon his practice and start working as a translator to earn his living. In 1790, while translating the famous William Cullen's 'A Treatise of Materia Medica', he read that Cinchona bark can cure malaria because of it's bitter taste and tonic effects on stomach. This doesn't seem appropriate to Dr Hannemann and he decided to do an experiment on himself. He started to take a small amount of cinchona bark himself for several days and he developed the symptoms of malaria. This crucial obser
