i think you were getting at something different than i was getting at in my response. to try to address your point more accurately, i would agree it 'makes sense' to search for material causes, but, if you understand my meanings correctly, 'material' causes would included both physical and energetic components, and i would suggest, furthermore, that a proper understanding of H would place his work in the same frame: again, note his misunderstanding of forces involved in magnetism as being 'immaterial,' really, a misunderstanding of the times. sooo, homeopathy and allopathy in fact both approach medical care on the basis of purely material considerations, but from different angles, boxing to judo for a very rough analogy, meant only to illustrate that there is more than one way to skin a (material) cat.
And why the heck is Hahnmann against searching for possible material cuase of diseases?
Where would we be today, if everybody had followed that advice?
