Aphorisms 16, 19 and 22 state that only medicines like the disease is truly curative. These aphorisms outline the ‘law of similars.’ Aphorisms 20 and 21 declare the spirit-like nature of the drug in both its curative and its health-deranging action. Aphorism 23 states that any system employing medical contraries is an uncurative system. Aphorisms 24, 25, 27 and 28 declare the absolute superiority of similars in medicine. Aphorism 26 declares that displacement by similars is curative. Aphorisms 29 and 43-47 declare that only displaced diseases based on similars have been truly and fully cured without leaving any residue of disease cause in the organism. Aphorisms 32-35 and 50-51 state that only drugs employed for disease displacement are curative if they are employed correctly – i.e. by law of similars. Aphorisms 36-42, 48 and 54-57 all declare that dissimilar diseases and contrary drugs are similarly uncurative.

Aphorism 52 states that aggravations are more likely from using similar drugs, which can inflame the symptoms of disease. Aphorism 53 speaks of mild and gentle nature of true cures. Aphorism 58 states that medicine based on anti-pathic methods may palliate and give temporary symptom relief, but such treatment of parts and disease labels is not effective in the longer run or for disease as a totality. Aphorism 59 explores the primary and secondary effects of drugs. Aphorisms 60 and 62 say that only suppression, not cure, ensues from the use of contraries [allopathy]. Aphorism 61 states that safe true cures are only obtained through similar [homeopathic] drugs. Aphorism 63 medicines derange the vital force – that is their spirit-like power [provings] and is called the primary action. Aphorism 64 says the body mounts a counter-attack against this primary attack and this reaction is mounted by the vital force and comprises the secondary effect of a drug. Aphorisms 65 and 66 explore with detailed examples the primary and secondary actions of drugs. Aphorism 67 - only homeopathy is truly beneficial to health.
