Organon §202

Removal of local symptoms results in a heightening of the whole disease.

If the local symptom is topically annihilated by external means (by a physician of the hitherto school who is of the opinion that he has thereby cured the whole disease), nature makes up for this by awakening the internal suffering and the rest of the symptoms that already existed and are lying dormant along with the local malady; that is, nature makes up for this by heightening the disease. In these cases, one tends to say, incorrectly, that by external means, the local malady has been driven back into the body or upon the nerves.
