- Dr. Samuel Swan was born on 4th July 1814 in Medford, Massachusetts. He became aquented with homoeopath Dr. G. A. Ulrich, with whom he studied homeopathy. Soon afterwards, Swan returned north and enrolled in the Homeopathic Medical College of Pennsylvania, studying under Hering, Lippe, and Guernsey. He graduated in 1866 and moved to New York City. Dr. Swan became a member of the International Hahnemannian Association (IHA) in 1881. Though having studied under the foremost homeopaths and having mastered the application of the principles of the Organon and the Chronic Diseases, Swan strove to improve the practice of homeopathy. His work was condemned by some as isopathic, empiric, and antidotal, at best. Forthwith, he resigned from the IHA in 1887.
Denying isopathic relation to his work, Swan declared that all poisons show individuality in their effects, which are unchangeable, but somewhat modified by the idiosyncrasy of the individual and stated that the poison that caused the disease in the healthy would be inherent in the products of said disease, and would cure similar symptoms in the diseased individual. Dr. Swan further asserted that the poison is not isopathic, but when potentized, is an antidote to the crude poison - not an idem, but similar, thus homeopathic. He cites the Organon, footnote to par. 56.
Lac-d has got power to consider those diseases and symptomatology which are result of faulty nutrition like Thyroidinum. It is a powerful medicine in cases of chronic constipation, even no stool for many days, at the same time when our indicated remedy fails in cases of chronic constipation but we as a homeopath, always consider prescribing on the basis of indications as Hahnemann discussed in §3, “knowledge of disease, indication” and indications what I listened from my eyes that in obstinate constipation, nausea and vomiting, great prostration and copious pale urine are combination of concomitant and valuable for prescribing. Most of the patients have tendency to obesity as well as fatty degeneration found in many organs of the body.
One strong mental symptom that patient has got no fear of death, bold enough to face the death. At the same time he has got the feeling that he surely going to die, an indication of strong syphilitic mind having no care about himself to live. This combination of the symptom marked in Lac-D. projecting towards the syphilitic mental concomitant to any physical complaint.
Constipated stool, so hard that lacerated the rectal surface with ineffectual desire with painful extorting cries. Allen quoted a case of woman with constipation of 15 years duration. This extorting cries she faced every 4 or 5th week since 15 years was cured by Lac-d.
Women mostly obese having delayed menstruation can get suppressed flow of the period whenever she drinks a glass of milk and her suppressed menses is going to appear in the next month. E.g. if she has got first day menstruation and if she drinks a glass of milk, suddenly her get suppression of menstrual flow and appear in the next month. Menses in always late and when she putting hand in the cold water, menstrual flow is stopped. So, fatty, obese women having very sensitive to drinking milk as well as putting hand in cold water produce suppression of menstrual flow.
Patient of Lac-d become very restless and developed extreme and protracted suffering/problem when patient loss of sleep.(like Cocc. & Nit.Ac.). In case of Cocculus patient having day and night watching to sick suffering friend, relative, parents and the consequences are some extreme protracted diseases we never forget to the Cocculus a medicine for complications of post intermittent fever when advanced stage of albuminurea develop or chronic liver complaint developed when may be some chronic heart disease, many times complications is so advanced that dropsy developed.
G.I. tract is influenced by Lac-d and vomiting especially marked of the pregnant lady (like Lactic acid & Psor.). the funny thing is that it has got no relation with taking food. In general vomiting has got sequence of characteristic features- 1) No relation with eating or food. 2) First undigested food which is very acidic in nature then a vomiting of bitter water is develop.
A remedy for different type of headache: Headache begins in forehead, extending to occiput, in morning on rising. Severe throbbing like Belladonna but having constant nausea like Ipecac., vomiting and blindness as well as obstinate constipation are strong concomitants. This severe headache mostly marked during menses with great prostration and relieved by pressure.
Severe recurrent copious urine is a strong concomitant whenever patient has got anywhere pain (like Thuja occ.).
In fact patient as a whole, either baby or adult, always have got allergy and aversion to the milk and chronic constipation does not responding medicine are valuable indication to just know about the patient may needs Lac-def.
As we prescribe on the basis of indication and skimmed milk is going to prepare with the process of potentisation, these two factors made no isopathic medicine, rather a purely homoeopathic medicine. Hahnemann clarify in Chronic Diseases at end of the first part that, “The antipsoric medicines treated of in what follows contain no so-called idiopathic medicines, since their pure effects, even those of the potentized miasma of itch (Psorin) have not been proved enough, by far, that a safe homoeopathic use might be made of it. I say homoeopathic use, for it does not remain idem (the same); even if the prepared itch substance should be given to the same patient from whom it was taken, it would not remain idem (the same), as it could only be useful to him in a potentized state, since crude itch substance which he has already in his body as an idem is without effect on him. But the dynamization or potentizing changes it and modifies it; just as gold leaf after potentizing is no more crude gold leaf inert in the human body, but in every stage of dynamization it is more and more modified and changed.
Thus potentized and modified also, the itch substance (Psorin) when taken is no more an idem (the same) with the crude original itch substance, but only a simillimum (thing most similar). For between IDEM and SIMILLIMUM there is no intermediate for any one that can think; or in other words between idem and simile only simillimum can be intermediate. Isopathic and aequale are equivocal expressions, which if they should signify anything reliable can only signify simillimum, because they are not idem.”
Above comment of Hahnemann making differentiation between isopathy and homoeopathy is not enough until and unless we must prescribe by indication. Indication make this isopathic medicine in potentized form like Medorrhinum, Syphillinum, Psorinum, Thyroidinum, Lac-can, Lac-def become a homoeopathic medicine.
