Paracelsus (born Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, 11 November or 17 December 1493 - 24 September 1541) was a Swiss Renaissance physician, botanist, alchemist, astrologer, and general occultist. Paracelsus pioneered the use of chemicals and minerals in medicine. He used the name "zink" for the element zinc in about 1526, based on the sharp pointed appearance of its crystals after smelting and the old German word "zinke" for pointed. He used experimentation in learning about the human body. Paracelsus was also responsible for the creation of laudanum, an opium tincture very common until the 19th century. Paracelsus, Wikipedia

"Science admits that nature works with dual force, though at rest she is a unit. "Nature is one eternal cycle." Keely's discoveries prove that the doctrine of the Trinity should be set down as an established canon of science - the Trinity of force. All nature's sympathetic streams - cerebellic, gravital, electric and magnetic - are made up of triple currents. The ancients understood this dogma in a far deeper sense than modern theology has construed it. The great and universal Trinity of cause, motion and matter - or of will, thought and manifestation - was known to the Rosicrucians as prima materia. Paracelsus states that each of these three is also the other two; for, as nothing can possibly exist without cause, matter and energy - that is, spirit, matter and soul (the ultimate cause of existence being that it exists), we may therefore look upon all forms of activity as being the action of the universal or Divine will operating upon and through the ether, as the skilled artificer uses his tools to accomplish his designs; making the comparison in all reverence." [Bloomfield-Moore, More Science] [True Science]

The art of healing, according to Paracelsus, rests on four pillars: philosophy, which means, before anything, “to open yourself to the set of natural forces, observe those invisible forces in the penetration of total reality and perceive the invisible into the visible”; astronomy, which teaches us how the stars in influence; alchemy, useful mainly in the preparation of medicines and "virtus", the honesty of the doctor. According to him, the doctor is the primary image of a person who is improving. More than anyone, the physician must recognize the action of the invisible nature in the patient, or, in the case of medicine, how it works on the visible.
For the Swiss doctor, nature is not only what our eyes see, nor only what exists elsewhere, but both at the same time. Braun wrote: "Thus, it's not surprising that it was Paracelso who introduced the description of the "force of imagination," giving a name to the imamant energy that fixes things from the inside out. Other attributes of this force are: it flows through all things, through all this immense world and is as eternal as all that exists and does not exist, all that is being."
According to Paracelso, the diseases are categorized as follows:
On the right side of the body everything is physical
From the left side of the body everything is psychic
From the front side of the body everything is positive (electric)
From the back side of the body everything is negative (magnetic)
“There is nothing in nature, created or given birth, that does not outwardly reveal its inner form, because everything that is intimate always tends to manifest itself as we can observe and observe with the stars and the elements, with creatures, and with trees and plants. That is why signature constitutes a source of understanding, through which man not only knows himself, but can recognize the quintessence of all beings.”
