This comprehensive work contains all the nosodes with a list of characteristics, related remedies, and the proving symptoms from head to foot. Many of the symptoms are still missing from the common repertories, including all the proving symptoms and the effect of X-ray, electricity, and magnetism. They offer an exciting glimpse of the future theoretical investigation of the mode of action of homeopathic remedies. Here you will find, together with the widely known nosodes, more seldom ones such as Epihysterinum, Ergotinum, Hippozaenium and Pestinum.

Anthracinum – Electricitas – Hydrophobinum – Malaria officinalis – Medorrhinum – Syphilinum.
Der Herausgeber sagt im Vorwort:
‘Concerning the character of this book, Nosodes, it may be said that Dr. Allen first, last and all the time, regarded these drugs as homoeopathic, and not as isopathic, remedies.’

Dr. Allen maintained that being a successful prescriber was contingent upon good case taking. He stated that:

One of the stumbling blocks to progress in the study of homoeopathy is the way we take our cases. We do not go back to Hahnemann’s system of therapeutics. There is a broad distinction between symptoms of diagnosis and symptoms of therapeutics.

Diagnostic symptoms are those of the disease, and the therapeutic symptoms go down to the patient himself. Now, the more valuable symptoms are for diagnosis the less valuable they are for the selection of the remedy. The practice of homoeopathy is just as simple as ‘ rolling off a log.’

Read §152 of the Organon. Take the individual symptoms, and select those peculiar as your guide, and it will be astonishing how easy it is to prescribe for a case after you have taken it. That is where the trouble lies. Hahnemann has told us that anybody can prescribe for a patient after the anamnesis is well taken.

At the Homeopathic Congress of June 1908, Allen accused Kent of publishing unreliable materia medica. Kent retracted his position and never published a “synthetic” remedy again and actually removed them from the 2nd edition of his Lectures on Homeopathic Materia Medica. Allen was probably the only homeopath of his time who could stand up to Kent.
