Organon §207

Once the above-mentioned information has been gained, the physician must inquire as to what allopathic treatments the chronic patient has received (what invasive medicines were chiefly and most frequently used, what mineral baths were used and with what results) in order to understand, to some extent, the degeneration from the patient's original state and either to improve, in part, these artificial ruinations (if this is possible) or at least to avoid the medicines that have already been misused.
