We have mixed up all the determiners (a, an, the, that, this) from the text, try and correctly place them.

The Quintessence of Hahnemann’s Organon Part 2 (Teacher: Michael)

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


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


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