Disorder first in vital force -Lectures on Homoeopathic Philosophy: KENT

Cancer is the result of disorder, which disorder must be turned in order and must be healed. It is first assumed that the organism is in a state of health and capable of performing its functions, and then the morbid sensations of this healthy organism are the symptoms that come to the physician as a forerunner of death in parts, and finally death of the whole.

“The sick”-Lectures on Homoeopathic Philosophy: KENT

Man consists in what he thinks and what he loves and there is nothing else in man. Man's highest possible love is for his life. Aurum so destroys this that he does not love his life, he will commit suicide. Argentum on the other hand so destroys man's understanding that he is no longer rational; his memory is entirely ruined. We see them affecting first man's mind, and proceeding from the mind to the physical economy, to the outermost, to the skin, the hair, the nails.
