Verhaltungsregeln während einer Homöopathischen Kur [Rules of Conduct during a Homeopathic Treatment].
Unrecorded homeopathy tract by a noted clinician and spa operator
Unrecorded homeopathic medical tract—whose title roughly translates as “Rules of Conduct during a Homeopathic Treatment.”
It was written by Dr. Arthur Lutze (1813–1870), an important homeopathic physician and contemporary of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755–1843), the founder of this pseudo-scientific system of alternative medicine that used very particular animal, vegetable, and mineral preparations to cure various diseases.
A year before this tract was published, in 1855, Dr. Lutze opened a homeopathic clinic and spa in Köthen (Saxony-Anhalt) complete with large wards and private rooms, spas, and other amenities. Present here are 25 dietary and health rules to be followed during a homeopathic treatment.
Strictly forbidden foods include coffee, tea, strong Bavarian beer, wine, schnaps, rum etc., and “everything strong and spicy.” One could eat pork conditionally; beef and mutton were allowed. Many other dietary regulations and advisories follow.
