Allopathic researchers are always trying to unravel the secret of disease by looking for some “thing” in
the body. They explore the cell membrane, DNA and gene fragments. If they could just look deeply enough, they believe, they could find the thing that causes a disease.
A headline last week declared “ Researchers have found specific nerve cells responsible for itchiness, a discovery that could lead to better treatments for skin conditions”. When scientists destroyed a certain gene in mice, the mice would no longer scratch when something tickled them. The next step they say, is to make a drug to stop itching.
Hahnemann tells us (§187-204) that external, local ailments not caused by injury, are due to “some internal malady”and involve the whole organism. He warns that treating that one part “is as absurd as it is pernicious in its results”. He calls the suppressive treatment of local symptoms “one
of the most criminal procedures the medical world can be guilty of”.
Like the allopathic researchers, as a child I used to take apart old radios, looking for the thing that made them work. I was especially fascinated by condensers, which are made of alternate layers of tinfoil and waxed paper. I would carefully unravel them to see what was inside. But alas, there was never anything inside! I could have taken apart hundreds of them, but would never have understood the mystery. When I grew up, I learned that the condenser’s purpose was to store energy, and energy was the secret I had been looking for.
When will allopathy grow up and discover the vital force, which
is at once invisible, but also plain as day, to those who can see.
