Homeopath Siegfried Letzel discusses the cholera epidemic of 1831 in Europe, prior to modern medical knowledge, and Hahnemann’s insight into the disease and development of an effective approach to treating it.
These days will be entered in the history books as the “Corona Crisis” – less from the medical but rather from the economical point of view. With all the constraints and sacrifices the broad society is suffering, the focus now is on improving medical care by providing a sufficient number of intensive care beds and medical ventilators. It will be interesting to know how the scenery was at the time when modern scientific medicine had not evolved.
