Aphorism 2: "The highest ideal of cure is the rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of health...in the shortest, most reliable, and least disadvantageous [gentlest] way, according to clearly realizable principles". Organon of the Medical Art by Samuel Hahnemann
No form of medicine I have encountered has been as
-Based on clear principles (meaning that it is a science that can be learned and applied by anyone)
Other therapies can be gentle, but may not be fast or permanent. For example, massage. Patients generally have to go a few times before getting strong results and the results don't usually last long. However massage is definitely effective and incredibly gentle. Conventional medicine can be fast, permanent, based on some key principles such as relying on clinical trials, relying on synthetically made compounds, etc, but it is rarely gentle. Gifted spiritual healers are fast, gentle, and often permanent, but not based on principles. Therefore these gifted healers are one-offs, and very few people are able to learn their methods and follow in their footsteps. This therefore limits the amount of good they can do; access to healing has been limited by their inability to impart their gift to others.
A foundation of clear principles allows for easily reproducible results and the goal of gentle, fast, and permanent cures guides practitioners to make choices that are sometimes different from other practitioners. The combination revolutionizes care.
