Galen, the famous Greek physician active in the 2nd century ce, gave gonorrhea its name, from gonos, or "seed," and rhoia, or "flow." It is thought that the disease predates ancient Greece, however, and was known in ancient Egypt and China. Widespread by the 18th century, gonorrhea was considered a major underlying cause of illness, described by Hahnemann as a "miasm" (see page 20). The remedy, derived from a "nosode" (see page 20) of the infection itself, was proved by Dr. Swan and published in Allen's Materia Medica of Nosodes (1880-90).
