A poem on Hahnemann by Dr. Kavitha Kukunoor
Professors Meyer-Steinheg of Jena and Sudhoff of Leipzig, two of the world’s greatest medical historians, assert that the influence of Hahnemann was, on the whole, certainly for good. He emphasized the individualization of the patient in the handling of disease…..and he demonstrated the value of testing the actual virtues of drugs by trial.
