Hysterical, giggling, weeping, cranky, scolding. Tense, fumbles, clumsy. Prostrated during menses, “I could not move even if chased by a bull.” Craves sauerkraut. Perspires freely from emotional strain, axillary sweat offensive. Always cold, loves hot weather, the hotter the better. Empty sensation all over, head, arms and legs feel empty. Psorinum repeated at long intervals over a period of years has kept her in good health.
In an impoverished country like ours where the mass seldom gets one full meal a day the approach to the maintenance of National Health should be based upon realities of the situation and not upon the fantastic recommendations of the Bhore Committee that requires one thousand crores of rupees to put the scheme into action. India wants a system of medicine which promises the greatest efficacy at the minimum cost.
It seems to me that in the dynamic state with a certain amount of potential the reaction is greater than the original stimulus. The matter of potential and its factors are of more concern than even the law itself, for they are the conditions under which the law acts. If it be true that energy cannot be destroyed we may cease to worry about the energy itself and look to those factors which modify its action.
In the sixth group there was Antimony, Arsenic, Bismuth and Cadmium. In the seventh group there was nothing yet; in the eighth there was Sulphur, and with that there was a number of others like Iodine, Potassium, Manganum, Mercury, Platinum, Radium, Stannum and Zinc; in the tenth there was Osmium and Uranium; and in the eleventh there was Thallium.
This brings me to the point that I want to stress. In an early day we had a great deal more cholera infantum than we have today and with an experience extended over many, many years I have lost but one case of this so-called disease. I was so wrought up over my failure that it took me six months after the child was dead and buried before I saw my mistake.
The patient, when not unconscious, was hardly able to give an account of herself, so a prescription was a leap in the dark, rather than a differentiation of remedies. There I stood, to stand or fall, and there wavered homoeopathy, to win or lose, depending upon the choice of remedy a pregnant moment, indeed.
The time is fast approaching when those who heretofore have hidden their ignorance behind a self-constructed adamantine wall of obstinate prejudice will be smoked out and no longer be able to cover up that ignorance. Those who sneered, and those who do now sneer, at Hahnemanns small doses have only deceived themselves and their ignorant dupes and followers.
For haemorrhages after labor I have had remarkably good results from the use of a preparation of Trillium pendulum or Trillium concentration which I obtain from Messrs. Caroll Dunham, Smith & Co., of East 34th Street. New York City. For the relief of metrorrhagia, haemorrhoids of pregnancy and the enlargement or varicose conditions of the veins of the lower limbs I have found it practically infallible.
