Some one has said, “You may have too much of even a good thing.” Now, while this may be true in the main, yet I do not think it true of such “a good thing” as the Sanicula mineral spring water. Therefore, I will give a little more clinical verification of it; somewhat different from any published heretofore.
Mrs. K- came to the office for medicine; said she felt sure she was going to have an attack of fever. She felt sad and despondent on account of this. Had some fever the night before, with headache, yet no thirst. Mouth dry and tongue coated, with bad breath; inside of lips and cheeks many little aphthous ulcers; no appetite; bowels constipated; tired, numb, lame feeling in all her limbs; feels chilly and wants to warm, yet the head feels better in the open air.
All of the above symptoms are characteristic of Sanicula. I gave her the 10m. every three hours, until better. Ten days later she returned with a lady friend. On asking her how she felt, her reply was, “I am all right, but my friend wants some medicine”.
CASE II. –
Mr. C- applied for some medicine for his mouth, the roof of which felt as if scalded, < by taking anything warm in the mouth, especially hot drink. Had been that way for two days. Strange to say, he had no other symptoms that I could find. Smokers often have this condition of the mouth, but he did not smoke, nor had he burnt the mouth, but he did not smoke, nor had he burnt the mouth with anything hot. I remembered the condition of my own mouth during my proving, and gave him Sanicula 10 m., a few powders. This did the work at once.
While on the mouth question I will give another.
CASE III. –
My horse, Dan, had not been feeling as well as usual, would not eat, bowels constipated, stools dark and scant. Seemed tired, did not want to go; would rub his tail at every opportunity, and had rubbed nearly all the hair off. I spoke to a veterinary surgeon about him, and he told me my horse had the lampers, and I would find his gums, telling me what to give him internally first.
I found the gums as the doctor told me. His mouth was slimy and his tongue coated, but instead of scarifying I gave him Sanicula 10 m., a powder three times a day. In a few days he was all right. So you see there are some good things we can’t get too much of. Professor Kent used to tell us that Fenugreek was good for a horse. So is Sanicula when indicated.
