§ 271 – Sixth Edition
If the physician prepares his homœopathic medicines himself, as he should reasonably do in order to save men from sickness1, he may use the fresh plant itself, as but little of the crude article is required, if he does not need the expressed juice perhaps for purposes of healing. He takes a few grains in a mortar and with 100 grains sugar of milk three distinct times brings them to the one-millionth trituration (§ 270) before further potentizing of a small portion of this by means of shaking is undertaken, a procedure to be observed also with the rest of crude drugs of either dry or oily nature.
1 Until the State, in the future, after having attained insight into the indispensability of perfectly prepared homœopathic medicines, will have them manufactured by a competent impartial person, in order to give them free of charge to homœopathic physicians trained in homœopathic hospitals, who have been examined theoretically and practically, and thus legally qualified. The physician may then become convinced of these divine tools for purposes of healing, but also to give them free of charge to his patients – rich and poor.
If men are to be really saved from diseases, the doctor should prepare medicines by himself. He can himself bring a fresh unripe tree and use it. Out of the raw substance available in the tree, the required quantity will be much less. So much juice need not be extracted. A few grains of medicine should be obtained and triturated three times with 100 grains of sugar of milk and make ready one million parts of medicine should be prepared by means of succession for potentization in the above method. The same procedure should be adopted for preparation of medicines out of dry herbs or oily substances.
§ 272 – Sixth Edition
Such a globule1, placed dry upon the tongue, is one of the smallest doses for a moderate recent case of illness. Here but few nerves are touched by the medicine. A similar globule, crushed with some sugar of milk and dissolved in a good deal of water (§ 247) and stirred well before every administration will produce a far more powerful medicine for the use of several days. Every dose, no matter how minute, touches, on the contrary, many nerves.
1 These globules (§ 270) retain their medicinal virtue for many years, if protected against sunlight and heat.
One single dose of such potentized drug is enough for a patient. A few nerves only touch the medicine. So, if such a dose is mixed with powder of sugar of milk and water shaked properly and used, its effect will be more efficient. That water can be used for number of days. Despite of its minuteness, each dose used, touches a number of nerves.
