50 Reasons for Being a Homeopathy by Dr. James Compton Burnett

This is reason #7 of the 50 Reasons that Dr. James Compton Burnett wrote about to a young doctor. It all started at a dinner table discussion when the young doctor ridiculed Dr. Burnett for being a homeopath. Delighting in the opportunity to educate, Dr. Compton kept an ongoing dialogue with the young man over time. His letters became the source of the fascinating little book which gives us a glimpse into the pratice of a true master in the 1800's.

Reason 7:

This shall also be in further elucidation of my contention that Homeopathy turns the groping, bungling treater of disease into a master of the healing art.

Ever since the year 1878 I have been in the habit of using Vanadium as a remedy in a class of cases that, outside of Homeopathy, you cannot touch – I mean in certain cases of atheroma of the arteries, and fatty degeneration. I had been in the habit of using Phosphorus, Antimony, Arsenic and the like, but was not satisfied with my result in certain cases: nothing satisfies me but a cure. So I went further afield, and thought I had found what I wanted in Vanadium, whose physiological effects I studied in the Proceedings of the Royal Society. I got the differential points from an article in the Journal of Physiology by Mr G. F Dowdeswell entitled “On The Structural Changes Which Are Produced In The Liver Under The Influence Of The Salts Of Vanadium.”

In a word, let me say that it consists of true cell destruction, the pigment escaping, the liver being hit hardest. I had a case on hand of fatty liver, atheroma of the arteries, much pain corresponding to the course of the basilar artery, large deeply pigmented patches on forehead, profound adynamia, and so forth. Well, my patient was then over seventy, and was very clearly breaking up and going to pass the big bourne whence no man returneth. Thanks to the use of Vanadium (I used the soluble ammonium salt) in homeopathic preparation, chosen according to the homeopathic law, that lady got quite well, and remains so, being now hard upon eighty years of age, and hale and hearty.

This is what I call being a master of the art of healing, and that you may truly realise the entire independence of my proceeding, I may tell you that thus far Vanadium (so far as I know) has never even now been used in medicine at all, except by myself.

Of course, as you are a “regular”, you would not so far have forgotten your dignity as to go in quest of a remedy for your case, holding on humbly and hopefully to the Hahnemannic law. Please allow the now by me clinically proved homeopathicity of Vanadium to a certain form of fatty decay stand as my seventh reason for being a homeopath. My other Vanadium cases I will not trouble you with – they only prove the same point; besides, I still have forty-three reasons to give you.
