EDITORIAL. Many are satisfied and successful using only the crude drug, the 3X, 6X and 12X. The Koch treatment with its occasional brilliant result in cancer uses only the 6X and 12X. They do not seem to have sensed the fact of grafting potentized remedies and for new supply go through the original processing for each new batch.

EDITORIAL

EDITORIAL. A basic conception is that the curative powers of any drug are best disclosed by finding and recording the manner in which this drug disturbs the health of healthy human beings. This concept led directly to the testing of large numbers of drugs by “provings” or experiments on healthy individuals.

DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICAL CASE MANAGEMENT

The practice of using either sugar or salt on melons is merely the expression of a perverted taste acquired through habit. Like other useless or harmful habits it can be broken and forgotten. New tastes and preferences can be acquired in a surprisingly short time.

EDITORIAL

EDITORIAL. Hahnemann and Hayes played the entire keyboard from the crude drug up to the DMM potency. In fact we have it from the clear headed Fincke that Hahnemann in his late years allowed the patient but one sniff from the open bottle of a very high potency for starting a disordered constitution toward harmony and health.

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE. There is nothing so essential as good case history taking. Once one has this accomplished, one has laid the foundation for an approach to that difficult case at hand. But one must give time and patience to the problem. It is not so bad, when one knows that it is going to make the case easier in the long run.

COMMUNICATION

COMMUNICATION. I read always with much pleasure the Recorder. In the discussion of a paper of Dr. Grimmer, Dr. Waffensmith asserts that Hahnemann tells us in the Organon “that it takes five years to overcome a drug suppression.” I am sorry to contradict my distinguished Confrere.

EDITORIAL

EDITORIAL. The law of similia applied to a relationship between these two sets of phenomena. It attempts to bring order into the selection of curative and / or helpful therapeutic measures rather than to depend entirely upon trial and error, empirical measures alone. This empirical method is probably the most ancient of all that doctors through the ages have used for the selection of their therapeutic measures. Progress under it is bound to be “capricious” and very uncertain.

TREATMENT OF DIABETES WITH POTENTIZED CANE SUGAR SOLUTION

TREATMENT OF DIABETES WITH POTENTIZED CANE SUGAR SOLUTION. The new treatment (subcutaneous injection of potentized cane sugar solution) suits above all those chronic cases in which, with or without insulin application, a sort of static condition has …. een reached and in which neither improvement nor aggravation becomes evident.

EDITORIAL

EDITORIAL. When we see pathology disappear while our patients are under the influence of a well-selected Homoeopathic drug, one that has been selected for a patient because of similarity of the patient’ s sufferings to the recorded reactions experienced by healthy provers while experimenting with the same drug,it is very gratifying both to the physician and the patient.

COMPLICATING FACTORS IN CHRONIC PRESCRIBING

COMPLICATING FACTORS IN CHRONIC PRESCRIBING. Some of these drugs are causing disease, others are helping to complicate and perpetuate various diseases and still others are most certainly antidoting, to some extent at least, the action of the most carefully selected remedy. Moreover, the mere presence of these drug substances in the system helps to cloud and obscure the symptoms of the patient, thereby confusing the physician in his analysis of the case.

CARBO ANIMALIS

CARBO ANIMALIS. This remedy is indicated so frequently in cases of advanced pathology that its value in functional disorders is often over- looked. All disease begins in the functional plane and, unless checked, progresses toward structural change and incurability. The homoeopathic remedy is truly life saving and health restoring in the early stages of chronic disease. In terminal conditions we can only hope for palliation. The majority of patients apply for treatment somewhere between these two extremes.

HEALTH PROBLEMS OF THE SCHOOL AGE CHILD

HEALTH PROBLEMS OF THE SCHOOL AGE CHILD. Frozen foods should be used with caution. Better techniques will no doubt improve their value in time but the risk of careless handling is considerable. A grocer received an order of frozen fish. The entire lot was a total loss. The shipment had stood all night on the warehouse platform, was partly thawed out and then refrozen.

EMOTIONAL CONFLICTS AND THE PROBLEM THEY PRESENT TO THE PHYSICIAN

EMOTIONAL CONFLICTS AND THE PROBLEM THEY PRESENT TO THE PHYSICIAN. In some cases the patient will need sound psychiatric advice. This he will probably receive in better spirit after the remedy has been prescribed and is acting curatively as he will then be in a more cooperative frame of mind and will have gained confidence in his doctor.

AN EFFECTIVE PLAN FOR INFANT FEEDING

AN EFFECTIVE PLAN FOR INFANT FEEDING. Habits and preference in respect to food and drink can be given a healthful and hygienic direction during the early months and years of life. Why not give the children the best things in life, the best in food to build strong bodies, intelligent and sympathetic training to insure emotional stability, careful instruction and good literature to enlighten the mind.

NEURITIS

NEURITIS. Neuritis is defined as inflammation of a nerve. Pathological symptoms include pain, tenderness, more or less impairment of function, sensory disturbances and in severe cases areas of anesthesia and even paralysis. The kind or type of disease from which he will suffer depends upon the direction of susceptibility in his own constitution. Disease attacks the weakest structures in the constitutional chain. The strong parts of the body are disease resistant.

CALCAREA CARB AND SILICA A COMPARISON

CALCAREA CARB AND SILICA A COMPARISON. Anxiety and apprehension run through both Calcarea and Silicea. They are equally mild, yielding and faint-hearted,but when annoyed they are cross, peevish and vindictive. then they sink back again into a state of apathy and indifference. Both remedies have a false full-bloodedness an anaemic plethora,but Calcarea has a greater tendency toward obesity than Silicea.

DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICAL CASE MANAGEMENT

DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICAL CASE MANAGEMENT. Limes have a flavor all their own and make a nice change from lemons. Every good thing that may be said about lemons applies also to limes. Either lemon or lime juice should be used in place of vinegar. The ordinary commercial vinegar is especially detrimental. A salad dressing made of pure olive oil and fresh lemon or lime juice is healthful as well as agreeable in taste.

QUESTION AND ANSWER DEPARTMENT

QUESTION AND ANSWER DEPARTMENT. Low potencies have acted favorably in the single dose and conversely high potencies have undoubtedly acted curatively when repeated. It is best to accept in principle the word of the masters of the homoeopathic art, but be ready to do something on ones own judgment and initiative then circumstances require.

DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICAL CASE MANAGEMENT

DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICAL CASE MANAGEMENT. Both the apple and the pear have lost much in value through many centuries of one sided cultivation for size, taste and appearance. However, these fruits are nevertheless exceedingly important from a health standpoint and should be eaten early, late and often. Fresh pear cider is a real treat, by the way. Wish more inventive and would concentrate on producing a simple, powerful, efficient, easily operated, easily cleaned, moderately priced juice extractor.

QUESTION AND ANSWER DEPARTMENT

QUESTION AND ANSWER DEPARTMENT. Undoubtedly some such method will ultimately help to put homoeopathy over the top and we should favor and not condemn such efforts. However, we should not allow ourselves to be sold prematurely on some contraption which may only work satisfactorily in the inventors own hands. Some people are so sensitive as to be able to detect vibrations on more interior planes than the rank and file of mankind.

NOTES ON VACCINATION

NOTES ON VACCINATION. In the opinion of the writer,if compulsory vaccination were to be done away with it would not only be in the interest of freedom, but also in the interest of improved public health. The only ones who would be likely to suffer in the absence of compulsion would be those having a commercial interest at stake.

DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICAL CASE MANAGEMENT

DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICAL CASE MANAGEMENT. Slight irregularity of the inner surface of the skull in the right mastoid region, which is suggestive but not conclusive of fracture- considering the injury to the lower jaw it is a possibility. With these three fractures of the lower jaw, it is difficult to explain the remarkably good position and the comparatively little discomfort considering the extent of the injury.

DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICAL CASE MANAGEMENT

DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICAL CASE MANAGEMENT. Constitutional weaknesses and disease tendencies exist in everyone and nutritional deficiencies, food toxemias and the peculiar stresses of the individual pattern of living all tend to wear down the inherently defective parts of the organic structure.

DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICAL CASE MANAGEMENT

DEPARTMENT OF PRACTICAL CASE MANAGEMENT. Unrefreshing sleep is generally an indication of an increasing toxemia and plenty of “good nourishing food” is often the cause of the trouble. Many cases will clear up after dietary correction and an increased amount of outdoor activity. Remove the obstacles to recovery and then prescribe the indicated remedy. The idea of letting the remedy do it all is unscientific and in the long run disappointing.

QUESTION AND ANSWER DEPARTMENT

As reliable as any other symptoms or rubrics, It is remarkable how frequently an old patient returns for treatment on or about the anniversary of his very first visit. Everyone on the average has his best time or season of the year and his worst. Some people dread February, and with reason based on experience, others dread August. The springtime aggravation of ophidia patients is well recognized.
