FOOT NOTE 118
I cannot therefore advise, for instance, the local
extirpation of the so-called cancer of the lips and face
(the product of highly developed psora,
not frequently in conjunction with
syphilis) by means of the arsenical remedy of Frere
Cosme, not only because it is excessively painful and
But more for this reason, because, if this dynamic
remedy should indeed succeed in freeing the affected
part of the body from the malignant ulcer locally, the
basic malady is thereby not diminished in the
slightest, the preserving vital force is therefore
necessitated to transfer the field of operation of the
great internal malady to some more important part
(as it does in every case of metastasis), and the
consequence is blindness, deafness, insanity,
suffocative asthma, dropsy, apoplexy, etc.
But this ambiguous local liberation of the part from
the malignant ulcer by the topical arsenical remedy
only succeeds, after all, in those cases where the ulcer
has not yet attained any great size, and when the vital
force is still very energetic; but it is just in such a state
of things that the complete internal cure of the whole
original disease is also still practicable.
The result is the same without previous cure of the
inner miasm when cancer of the face or breast is
removed by the knife alone and when encysted
tumors are enucleated; something worse ensues, or at
any rate death is hastened. This has been the case
times without number, but the old school still goes
blindly on in the same way in every new case, with the
same disastrous results.

Answer: "With hardening.
A: No, it is not said it is a hardening, it is said it is
cancer. You have to see under pancreas, "pancreas,
affections" (p. 599), and then you have to differentiate
those remedies. Which of these remedies has
affections of the glands? Conium. If you have tumors
of the pancreas, and the pancreas is a gland, also the
mammae, the testicle and so on, then the first remedy
you have to think of is Conium
She had a hard tumor of the head of the pancreas and
in the rubric " abdomen, pancreas" on page 599 you
see Conium, IOdium, Iris, Phosphorus and Spongia,
and when you look in the Generalities " cancerous
affections, glands" on page 1346 you see three
remedies: Aurum muriaticum, Conium and Carbo
- If you compare those two rubrics, Conium remains.
