Chapter 6 [Conclusion] of the book written by J.C.Burnette in his book diseases of veins….


In the First part of this little treatise I give my own experience and thus offered some evidence of the curability of vein affections by medicines; I am by not means alone on this ground hundreds of homoeopathic physicians were on it before me, and I trust therefore no one will suppose that I claim to have originated the notion of contracting dilated veins by medicines. Many of my medical friends are fond of the Surgery of the Veins I prefer medicine, and these pages are meant to give to the grounds of my faith; for me these grounds are sufficient; what they may be for you critical reader I know not. If you should prefer steel, either cold or hot, well, degustibus non est disputandum.

The Second Part is for the most part not my own, but is called from numerous systematic and pharmacological works and contains, I trust all that all that will be needed to test the question of the curability of varices by medicines.
