Chronic Disease (Vol 1 & 2)

The Lesser Writings of Samuel Hahnemann

The Organon of Medicinal Art:

Homeopathic method:
"The highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of the health, or removal and annihilation of the disease in its whole extent, in the shortest, most reliable, and most harmless way, on easily comprehensible principles."  [Aph. 2 - Organon 5 & 6th ed. - Hahnemann & Dudgeon]

"Palliative (antipathic, Enantiopathic) method - "In order to carry into practice this antipathic method,  the ordinary physician gives for a single troublesome symptom from among the many other symptoms of the disease which he passes by unheeded, a medicine concerning which it is known that it produces the exact opposite of the disease symptom to be subdued, from which he can accordingly expect the speediest (palliative ) relief.... contraria contraris." [Aph. 57 - Organon 5 & 6th ed. - Hahnemann & Dudgeon]

Case Taking process --  Aph 83 to 104
"This individualizing examination of a case of disease, for which I shall only give in this place general directions, of which the practitioner will bear in mind only what is applicable for each individual case, demands of the physician nothing but freedom from prejudice and sound senses, attention in observing and fidelity in tracing the picture of the disease.

The patient details the history of his sufferings; those about him tell what they heard him complain of, how he has behaved and what they have noticed in him; the physician sees, hears, and remarks by his other senses what there is of an altered or unusual character about him. He writes down accurately all that the patient and his friends have told him in the very expressions used by them. Keeping in silence himself he allows them to say all they have to say, and refrains from interrupting them, unless they wander off to other matters. The physician advises them at the beginning to speak slowly, in order that he may take down in writing the important parts of what the speakers say.
