An innovative presentation of how a 'Prima Causa Morbi' (or a Proximate Cause of the Disease) can NEVER be the internal essence of the Disease (the disease itself) Afterall, by sound human reason, one can estimate that the cause of a thing/an event can NEVER be the thing/event itself. (at the same time) The Effect always follows the Cause. Pity, how the fallacy still prevails and truth is still being overlooked. We need to get back to the roots and look at Medical Science through an Epistemological Perspective. The subtile nature of the Old School of Medicine learns the direct facts, while overlooking the more obvious, 'glaring-on-the-face' kind of mistakes...




Good explanation.. In footnote to Aph No: 6 Hahnemann says allopathy considers the material causes as the prime cause or proximate cause for the disease and badly criticises them. And Hahnemann very strongly states that the primary cause for the diseases are MIASMS. So the basic question to be answered is Miasms an infecting agent or a state ? Let me quote a few examples. 1 .Organon--Introduction F. N--1 " the exciting cause of (non-veneral ) chronic disease to be an INFECTION at one period or another with the itch miasm (psora )... 2 . Aph No: 72 Last line " chronic diseases. They are caused by INFECTION with a chronic miasm." 3 . Aph No: 78. The " true natural chronic diseases " are those that arise from a CHRONIC MIASM. 4 . Aph No: 81. "The fact that this extremely ancient infecting AGENT". In his "Chronic Diseases" " All chronic diseases are based upon fixed chronic miasms which enable their parasitical ramifications to spred through the human organism.... Again..." The chronic miasms are semi- vital morbid miasms of a parasitical nature... See his explanation about acute miasms also.. ( Refer Aph No:72 to 81. ) Let me quote opinions of stalwarts of homoeopathy. 1 . The miasm , Hahnemann means germ- disease.---Sir John Veir. 2 . Hahnemann made a shrewd guess when he suggested the poison of cholera to be a living parasite. Infinitesimally small... C.E Wheeler. Like that the statements goes..... PRIMA CAUSA MORBI....... WHAT IS THE RIGHT ANSWER....?

Hahnemann criticises..... The conception of-- a material cause is the main cause for the origin of a disease. He DISBELIEVED that the bacteria , viruses or fungi are the proximate or prime cause for originating a disease as believed by allopaths. Hahnemann strongly believed that the proximate cause for the diseases are the miasms My point is we are openly denying microorganisms as the causative organisms of disease by the modern science. How will you solve this basic question ?

As per my humble opinion, Sir the presence of the microorganisms in the body and the simultaneous presence of the disease are factors that are correlational... But it Doesn't necessarily have to be the Causation, in the similar context of the above posted video. And let's Suppose the argument that 'Notorious Microorganisms' are the Proximate Cause of disease is true, Then too, The presence of the same organisms, which caused disease in a person, (by same exposure) may not cause disease in another person. Why, so aren't we surrounded by so many microorganisms within and without, they don't make us sick, in fact they help us with our normal functions.... Rightly, started 'One Man's food is another man's poison.' It's all the matter of Reactivity, Morbid Irritations causes diseases in an individual who already has deviation in the Vital Force, else it would either remove the irritation or make a symbiotic relationship with it. It's the matter of inquiring as to what came first 'a Hen' or 'an Egg', so perplexing yet humanly impossible to ascertain. So why don't we depend on what's evident and clear, rather than speculating fantastic abstract stories. As to whether pelvic inflammation caused the Childbed fever, or the Childbed fever caused the pelvic inflammation.... Rather treat the sick with a remedy similar in its affection to the Childbed Fever, Pelvic Inflammation and the deviations in the Natural sensations and functions of the person as a whole.
