Organon of the Medical Art (edited by Brewster O'Reilly) - Samuel Hahnemann
From the publisher:
Conventional Western Medicine attempts to cure disease by opposing and suppressing its most obvious symptoms. Homeopathic medicine treats the whole patient, using minute doses of medicines which stimulate the patient's own life force.
Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, who first developed this system of treatment, distilled his philosophy and practice into the Organon of the Medical Art. Long recognized as one of the most important books ever written on health, disease and medical care, the Organon has for many years been required reading for students of homeopathic medicine.
