| |Three Directions of Cure. | |
| |Another question that arises is: How can we demonstrate that we have cured and how may we know that our remedy is acting curatively? This| |
| |leads us to consider the three directions of cure.| |
| |We find that in order to produce a permanent cure, symptoms must disappear from above downward, from within outward, and in the reverse | |
| |order of their coming. | |
| |All homoeopaths who understand the art know that in orderfor the cure to be permanent, the symptoms must go away in these directions. It| |
| |is these directions, that we must keep in mind when we treat an eruption on the skin and see that the symptoms do not leave the skin and | |
| |go to the brain, for if such a course is taken we know a mistake has been made, and if something is not done to make the symptoms take a | |
| |proper course andgo from the brain (center) to the skin (circumference) we are going to have a death certificate to fill out. Then when | |
| |we treat a case of endocarditis, and after the administration of the remedy we observe a rheumatic swelling of the knee or ankle, and the| |
| |patient will tell you, “This is the same sickness I had when Dr. So-and-So treated me for rheumatism before this hearttrouble came on,” | |
| |you can be sure when this happens that you will make a cure, for the direction the symptoms have taken is according to the law, the | |
| |symptoms have left the internals and have gone to the external parts, and if we leave the prescription alone, a cure will result. | |
| |In Section 3 we have Hahnemann’s statement of the three precautions, or those whichI have called the “Trinity.” He must perceive what is| |
| |curable in disease; what is curative in medicine; and the application of the last to the first. And I can do no better than to quote | |
| |Section three of the Organon: “The physician should distinctly understand the following conditions: What is curable in diseases in | |
| |general, and in each individual case inparticular; that is, the recognition of disease (indicato). He should clearly comprehend what is | |
| |curative in drugs in general and in each drug in particular; that is, he should possess a perfect knowledge of medicinal powers. He | |
| |should be governed by distinct reasons in order to insure recovery by adapting what is curative in medicines to what he has recognized as| |
||undoubtedly morbid in a patient, that is to say, he should adapt it so that a case is met by a remedy well matched with regard to its | |
| |kind of action (selection of the remedy indicatum), its necessary prepartion and quantity, and the proper time of its repetition. | |
| |Finally, when the physician knows in each case the obstacles in the way of recovery, and how to remove them,he is prepared to act | |
| |thoroughly, and to the purpose, as a true master of the art of healing.” | |
| |Here Dr. Dudgeon’s translation uses the word “perceive,” which means understand. We may see a thing and not comprehend it; if we perceive| |
| |a thing we must understand it. Here it is that our pathology anddiagnosis will help us. We know when we perceive structural changes in | |
| |tissues which have resulted in organic destruction that the remedy will not replace tissue so destroyed. In these cases the only thing we| |
| |can do is to palliate the symptoms; but how much more gently and surely we can do this with our remedy than can be done by opiates, etc. | |
| |If there is any one...
