PREFACE. Jt is now more than fifteen years, since I first introduced that form of a ))Repertory(( of the homoeopathic remedies, which either through my original editions, or the Manuals of our indefatigable Jahr, by whom it has been adopted without any material alteration, has been widely spread and thereby proved its undoubted usefulness. A constant use of it during that period has been more than sufficient to judge of its advantages as well as of its defects, and the publication of similar w

VI practice he is in need of a work, containing an abridged, easily to be overlooked combination of the symptoms, pointing out at the same time their characteristics, in order to aid his memory, so that he may be able, in every concrete case of illness, to select with certainty and without to6 great a loss of time from amongst those remedies, which are indicated in general, the one, which is homoeopathically the most suitable. According to my opinion the defects of the Repertories hitherto pub

VII many alternate ones of an inferior order, and as in general the value or the uselessness of most of the symptoms can only be judged of by a laborious comparison of the whole, but never merely from the Materia Medica Pura at the moment they are wanted without previous study. Therefore not only the dispersion of many more or less important symptoms under different rubricks, by which the conception of the whole was rendered more difficult, but also a great many vacancies, for the filling

VIII as well as from Experience. Having, however, finished about half of the Manuscript, it had, contrary to my expectation, grown to such a size, that I the more willingly relinquished my plan, as I saw, that most likely the same object might be attained in a more simple and even a more satisfactory manner, if, by showing the peculiarities and characteristics of the remedies according to their different relations, I opened a path hitherto untrodden into the extensive fields of combination. In

IX out their relative value by means of a different print, as I had done in my former Repertories and which H ah n emann had repeatedly declared to be requisite. The reader therefore will find throughout the whole book the remedies divided into five classes, indicated by the print, of which the four principal ones occur in the first part (Mind and Soul) under the head: ),covetousness(( and which may serve as an example. The word Puls., given in italics printed apart, takes the first, the mo

x maintain, that everywhere within the stated limits I have hit the mark, I may be allowed to say, that no assiduity, no care, no circumspection has been wanting on my part, to avoid errors as much as possible. Therefore I not only took upon myself the tedious task of correcting the proof-sheets, but I had at the same time an english and a french translation prepared, so that wherever the alphabetical order and the stock of types permitted it, only the rubrick words were taken away and changed

Page  XI

XI in each of which, to facilitate the use of the book, the systematical and the alphabetical order have been as much as possible united. Although each section may be considered as a whole in itself, it nevertheless gives each time only one part of a symptom, which first becomes complete through one or several of the other parts. In the case of toothache, for instance, the seat of the pain is to be found in the second section, the kind of pain in the third, the increase or decrease' of the pai

XII I could, as according to the tendency of the whole work one part is to be explained by the other. There will on the contrary in this section -be found several signs, which in practice have proved of importance - f. e. under )exterior head, face, cough, - which one would in vain look for in any other work. Moreover this section serves essentially to point out the medicines, which, in a higher or lesser degree, have an influence on the different parts of the body and the organs, and only in

By these it was proved with great certainty, that one remedy inclines much more than another to such secondary complaints; that then, however, these last do not consist exclusively of this or that, but that in general e v er y k in d of co

XIV this remedy. Of such appearances, which in trying the effects of the medicines are called consecutive or alternate effects, there are also a good many in natural diseases, where a state occurs, opposed to the original complaint, but not the less a state of suffering, which may easily mislead the ignorant in the choice of the remedy. In another respect the connexion between the stated conditions of aggravation or amelioration and the whole complaint and its single symptoms is by far greater

Page  XV

P XV The seventh and last section gives under the head: nConcordances(( the results of a comparison of the effects of all the medicines in use, Ist in reference to the preceding sections, marked with the corresponding number, and 2dly at the end (VII) according to the remedy drawn from it, whereby their value has always been stated in the same manner, as in the preceding sections. This laborious, time demanding work - through which, however, my knowledge of the Materia Medica has been consider

XVI diseases. A certain familiarity with the Materia Medica Pura, it is true, is thereby indispensable: but the use of these Concordances is greatly facilitated for the beginner by the polychrests - which are full of symptoms - presenting a great many points of contact, wherefore an intimate acquaintance with the latter will enable him to use them with great ease and advantage. - At the end I have given the known Antidotes (Antid.) as well as the noxious remedies (Noc.). - I have to observe

XVII collection of every thing necessary to be known, which becomes deeply impressed on the memory may, afterwards be consulted in difficult cases and will not seldom be of the most important service in the right choice of the remedy. In making use of the work at the bedside of the patient much depends, whether one is quite a beginner, or already more or less versed in the homoeopathic art of healing. He, who as yet knows nothing at all, must necessarily make a careful search for every thing w


XVIII the calf down to the heel, with the exception of the joints of the knee and ankle. The pain itself he describes as a very acute, crampy, jerking, tearing one, often interrupted by stitches, proceeding from the inner part: in the morning, however, the pain upon the whole is much less, but rooting, and the patient feels as if beaten all over. It increases towards evening and in a quiet state - particularly after motion, in sitting and standing, and particularly doing so during a walk in t

XIX contrary will be obliged, to look for almost every single symptom and will only after a long investigation find the right one amongst the concurring medicines. Between those two extremes of knowing and not-knowing there are numerous degrees of half-knowledge, which require a more or less frequent consultation of the Manual. One, for instance, knows, that those pains, which fly from one part to another, being worse towards evening and in repose, the greasy taste in the mouth, sleeplessness

XX meet with contradictions, proving to him, that in the present case China is n ot the fit remedy. Now, neither of them will think of making a trial and of giving the patient a remedy, the effect of which in this case is so uncertain; but as conscientious homoeopathic physicians they will consider and compare, and with the assistance of this Pocketbook they will soon find, without a great deal of trouble, the only fit and truly homoeopathic remedy. But suppose, there was a third, who understo

XXI the uninitiated without some other assisstance will not easily overcome, as most of the symptoms, which here are to be taken into consideration, require to be more or less completed through the characteristic of the remedy, in order to be suitable, and as many consecutive effects, which are not marked out as such and not easily to be recognised, besides several printing faults in the notes, increase the uncertainty. But it is by far more difficult still for the less experienced homoeopathi

Page  XXII

XXII This is not the place to speak about the quantity and the repetition of the doses, a subject, on which, moreover, opinions are still divided. I think it, however, necessary to direct the attention of the english homoeopathic physicians to what we have experienced in this respect within the last two years. Several practical physicians of the highest order have found by a number of the most careful experiments, that not only the high. dynamisations, such as 200, 400, 800, far from being ine


XXIII incontestable facts, absolutely to deny this assertion. It is just in the diseases of the skin, of the glands and of the bones, that I have observed the most surprising effects from dynamisations of the highest degree and my journals contain a great many perfect cures, particularly of-those kinds ot diseases, which had for a long time resisted the larger and often repeated doses of the same remedy. Caries, osteonalaxy, exostosis, the curvature of the spine, as well as the differen

Nothing now remains, but to recommend this work, which is the fruit of about three years labour, to the just, unprejudiced and friendly criticism of all those, who, like myself, are determined to devote their lives entirely to homoeopachy and to suffering humanity.
