Haller’s suggestions were to no use, probably it was not known to HAHNEMANN that in 1829 Johanes Evangalista Purkinje (1787 – 1869) of Bohemia, a renowned physiologist of Purkinje’s fibers fame experimented upon himself the action of camphor, belladonna, strammonium and turpentine.However it was Hahnemann who started this new line of materia medica by testing the drugs on himself, his friends and family members. He called this process by the name of Drug proving which literally means proving the (curative) properties lying in drugs.The History:-After coming across that remark of William Cullen about Cinchona bark which he was translating in 1790. Hahnemann tested drugs one after another and this process of drug proving became the basis of his ‘Materia Medica Pura’, the first part of which containing drugs was published 1811. In his Organon of medicine, he describes the process in detail in regard to selection of the provers, their mode of life, food, regimen and the recording of symptoms in Paragraphs 105-145.Dr.
Hahnemann called his materia medica MATERIA MEDICA PURA – because it contains the pure effects of the drugs as observed on healthy human beings of different ages and both the sexes. It did not contain any information collected from any other sources. After him many individuals, like Dr.

He found the obstacle is in the dynamic level obstructing the path of cure.
He considered that something as the fundamental cause which played the highest role in the complication of disease.He classified this fundamental main cause behind the chronic diseases as Psora, syphilis and Sycosis. Thus, he discovered the doctrine of miasm as a concept and placed in his book chronic diseases.4.
