Aphorism 2 states that cure must be mild, safe, gentle and permanent. Aphorisms 5 and 6 declare that a disease must be viewed as a totality, not as a small part of the patient. Aphorism 7, one of the most important in the entire book, states that all diseases are caused by derangements in the vital force.

(...)

Aphorism 8 states that the disease is gone when the symptoms are removed; and that obversely, the cause is gone when the disease is removed – we can assume these are both gone when either one is removed gently and safely. Aphorisms 9 and 10 state that the organism is ruled over by a spiritual autocracy or vital force. Aphorisms 11, 12 and 17 declare that disease is solely a derangement in the vital force.

(...)

Aphorism 18 declares that disease must also be viewed as a totality [holism]. Aphorisms 13, 15 and 16 declare that disease and the deranged vital force are two names for the same thing, and that disease cannot be viewed as an entity. Aphorism 14 states that both cause and cure of disease are internal, not external to the patient.
