It has been urged against the homoeopathic treatment of tumours that, as the remedies used have (as a rule) never caused tumours or anything like them, and, more over, are in all probability quite incapable of doing so, it must follow that there can be no real homoeo-therapeutics of tumours. This little volume is a first part of my practical answer to this objection. It is brought out by itself for the reason already stated in my preface. I hope in a later publication to set forth in a clearer light my reasons for giving the remedies which I have found of greatest use in the treatment of tumours, some of which I have herein already referred to.

What I aim at in this volume is to prove that tumours can be truly and genuinely cured by medicines given by the mouth; and if I have proved that, then I have attained my object.

NEVERTHELESS, IN ORDER TO AID any younger practitioners in attempting the internal treatment of tumours, i.e. by remedies, I will just add a list of a few of the most useful medicines for this purpose, giving them alphabetically, with a practical note or two for the use of the uninitiated. For further information, see Hughes Pharmacodynamics, last edition, and back numbers of the British Journal of Homoeopathy, of the Monthly Homoeopathic Review, and of the Homoeopathic world.

James Compton Burnett
James Compton Burnett was born on July 10, 1840 and died April 2, 1901. Dr. Burnett attended medical school in Vienna, Austria in 1865. Alfred Hawkes converted him to homeopathy in 1872 (in Glasgow). In 1876 he took his MD degree.
Burnett was one of the first to speak about vaccination triggering illness. This was discussed in his book, Vaccinosis, published in 1884. He introduced the remedy Bacillinum. He authored twenty books, including the much loved "Fifty Reason for Being a Homeopath." He was the editor of The Homoeopathic World.
