HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES INDICATED IN EXOPHTHALMIC GOITRE. The exophthalmos when present for some months may never completely disappear and is more long-lasting in cases where the gland is much enlarged and pressure has taken place. This is true for cases treated by surgery or by medication.
THE PROBLEM CHILD. It is a terrible loss to the children of the present day that they are unable to receive good homoeopathic prescribing. Surgery is splendid when needed. The advances in modern medical treatment for acute cases at times appear to be curative, or at others suppressive; but nothing yet conceived can compare with the indicated similar remedy.
BORDERLINE HEART CASES. Modern developments in the field of medicine and homoeopathy features the Southern scientific program on Tuesday. Dr. Amaro Azevedo, physician to the President of Brazils family, was given half a page in the Memphis newspapers as he spoke on smoking as a causative factor of disease with particular stress on angina and arteriosclerosis.
CONFIRMATION-A CASE REPORT. Digging in the garden, painting, sanding, etc., brings on this pain acutely. After prolonged physical examinations in the Navy he was discharged-no diagnosis. After discharge he consulted specialists and was re-examined in our large Military Hospital.
STRYCHNINUM PHOSPHORICUM. In the Strychninum phosphoricum patients we get a combination of these Phosphorus ebullitions and of the sudden, violent, muscular contractions of the Strychninum element. These are not the little jerks which affect the hand, arm or foot, but they are sudden, violent, muscular contractions which come like lightening and are gone as fast. They come in the larynx but more often in the lower thorax, and are probably seated in the diaphragm.
PICRIC ACID. In the head we have a great amount of pain. Some of the symptoms suggest supraorbital and occipital neuralgia with shooting pains, pains relieved by pressure and bandaging the head. Other and more fixed type of pain is in the nape and occiput, worse toward evening. This headache is quite violent, is worse form mental exertion, and the patient is generally tired. This pain is intense and throbbing and bursting.
INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION IN ELDERLY PEOPLE. Obstruction occurs very suddenly as a rule, and the first time will usually be relieved by different and frequent enemeta. It may be that this attack is the first time the patient has found it necessary to call in his physician, and it is the duty of the physician to insist upon further and full investigation following the relief of the obstruction, for this is the time when his life may be saved or prolonged for some years if the diagnosis is established and he is operated upon at once.
HOMOEOPATHY IN THE TREATMENT OF ACUTE RHEUMATIC FEVER. Nearly all these acute rheumatic fever cases sweat so profusely that this symptom does not constitute a strange, rare and peculiar one which may guide to the selection of the remedy. When this sweating is very marked, and when the tongue is swollen and indented showing teeth marks, we must study and frequently prescribe Mercurius.
