Talk:Samuel Hahnemann

Article states that many surgery patients prior to the invention of anesthesia died of pain. I question this and suggest that it was more likely infection prior to the invention of antibiotics and a lack of sanitation due to a lack of understanding of germ theory. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs 19:44, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Given that the claim was added by an obvious sock of Proxima, it's probably wrong. Time word Phantom! 19:49, 14 March 2010 (UTC)


Hahnemann was a famous chemist of his day and knew about Avagadro's number. Therefore he also knew that his dilutions were well beyond the point where any of the substance could possibly remain. So he came to the conclusion that some heretofore unknown energy was released by the homeopathic dynamizaton process. Thus you can be reassured that he was not claiming that all physics, chemistry and biology is negated by the practice of homeopathy. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs
