It is the boast of homeopathy that the wonderful art and science discovered by Hahnemann has cured tens of thousands of cases pronounced absolutely incurable by orthodox medicine. That may be seen from homeopathic literature. Treatment like this is, or ought to be, familiar to every homeopathic prescriber.
Orthodox doctors and investigators have tried to use snake poisons in their usual fumbling way by making experiments on animals which are always inconclusive and frequently worthless. The full value of a drug can only be discovered by experimenting on human beings, and especially on healthy human beings.
If alopecia (cranial) is caused by disease, I am at a loss to know why baldness rarely occurs behind the ears (only). The anterior part of the scalp is affected and the hair on other parts of the body is unmolested. Medicine taken internally or applied externally is absolutely useless.
A contemporary of Madame Albani was Signor Foli — their names were often on the same programme. He was an Irishman with a wonderful bass voice, whose favourite remedy was Nux vomica. He would come in and say, “Give me a bottle of my usual (Nux. vom.); this keeps me fit.”

Even in rural England, some of which still remains, and in the wildest and most unsophisticated parts of Scotland, white bread can always be found, and gone are the days when you could purchase almost anywhere pure unadulterated flour. Not a word was mentioned of our adulterated food, of which bread is probably the worst offender.
“At the beginning we have simply used the pancreatic extract in doses of forty drops per day (twenty drops before each principal meal.) However, as some diabetic patients, especially those who are fat, seem not to be influenced by this treatment, we have substituted for the pancreatic extract hepatic extract, given in the same conditions.
This applies, in my experience to a number of diseases, including diabetes, some forms of cancer, tubercular diseases, wounds that do not heal and many disturbances of the eliminative organs, the throat, ear, nose and stomach.
