Session Description:

This talk will be an introduction to Hahnemann’s Materia Medica. The objective is for attendees to walk away less intimidated by the Materia Medica Pura and The Chronic Diseases, more familiar with how these works were constructed and, therefore, better equipped to utilize them to maximal advantage in practice. We will examine the structure of these works, how to utilize the introductions, author citations, time stamps, symptom grading, and footnotes, and we will take a look at some of the Old School sources Hahnemann recruited into his Materia Medica and how these inform our understanding of substance effects.
