"What I said in the long footnote to this paragraph in the fifth edition of The Organon of the Medical Art was all that my experience allowed me to say at the time. It was written with the purpose of preventing these adverse reactions of the life principle. However, during the last four or five years, all such difficulties have been fully lifted through the modifications I have made since then, resulting in my new, perfected procedure [for fifty-millesimal potency medicines]."Organon of the Medical Art; S . Hahnemann (O'Reilly 6th Edition), footnote, Aphorism 246.
"In the new edition of the Organon which will probably appear yet in the course of this year, improved and completed by Hahnemann himself, a new simplified procedure for the potentizing of medicines will be taught, which has considerable advantages over the former and yields a preparation as to the efficacy of which I can, from my own experience, give full praise."The Lesser Writings; C. M. F. Boenninghausen, Aluminium Metallicum, footnote, page 74.
"Of the other remedies used in these two cures (Sulphur, Mercurius, Nitric Acid), new dynamizations were used, which will be described in the next edition of the Organon , the peculiar preparation of which is known to me and which requires less time and trouble, but essentially presents our present high and highest potencies but having given my word of honor, I am not as yet at liberty to publish the same."The Lesser Writings; C. M. F. Boenninghausen , Boenninghausen's Last Work, Atropa Belladonna L, page 316.
Dr. Saine second reason for rejecting the LM potency is the method "is too complicated" keeping in mind that aphorism 2 of the Organon speaks of "easy comprehensible principles". The methods of the 5th Organon (1833), the 1837 Chronic Diseases , and the 6th Organon (c. 1843) are the extension of the principles enshrined in the all the previous editions of the Organon . The principle of Hahnemann's advanced methods is the individualization of the remedy, the size of the dose, the degree of potency and the repetition of medicine to suit the patient. That is certainly an easy enough model to understand if one has an open mind. Those who still think the size of the dose does and the nature of the delivery system do not matter can see no reason for making any changes in their methods. They follow the incorrect theories that originated with James Kent not the teachings of Samuel Hahnemann.
