NO.1. RENAL CALCULI.
Patient with kidney stones, determined to try treatment in spite of most solemn Allopathic warnings. Telephone message that he was in agony with acute renal colic. Burning pains with urging to urinate, terrific cutting pain at end of urination, pain in right kidney, extending down leg with great urging to stool. Sent Cantharis, Sarsaparilla and Nux, 200th of each, as patient resided at a distance, with orders to begin Cantharis and report every hour by phone. “Pain completely gone within a minute or two of taking the first dose.” In four days, patient passed without knowing it, two jagged stones, each as large as a pea.
No.2. “AVERSION TO LOVED ONES.” Sepia.
Secretary, rapidly heading for asylum. “Everybody conspiring against me.” Hot flushings, intolerance of heat, headache on vertex. Most loquacious patient I ever met. Lachesis 30, poor result. Sulphur 1m, and case reconsidered. As she had a definite aversion to sister, Sepia 30. Neighbour, who is a patient, asked, “Whatever have you down to Miss —-? She is a new woman”.
