SALTS OF POTASSIUM AT THE CRISES OF WOMANHOOD. Peculiar to womanhood is the function of conveying nutrition. from the tissues of the mother across a thin membrane, which we call semi-permeable, to the developing embryo and conveying from the embryo eliminative products across, to and through the maternal kidneys. We might expect to learn from provings and clinical experience that an element such as potassium can influence the health of women in particular.
NEW PERSPECTIVES IN VIEWING AN OLD TECHNIQUE. A state of health is a state of stable equilibrium. If disturbed, it restores itself very soon. An acute disease is an unstable state, and seeks a state of equilibrium. Chromic disease represents an unstable state of equilibrium. A minor disturbance results in large changes in state. The laws of thermodynamics tell us what chances can take place in these states.
A CASE OF PRENATAL SUPPRESSION. Having been fortunate enough to find the remedy Diphtherinum and its complement, Causticum, for this baby, I now learned the rest of the case history, withheld at the earlier visits.

The labor was not unusually long, terminated spontaneously, and the baby cried immediately. some signs of hyperthyroid function present in the mother.
