I was wonderfully benefited in one more case of meningitis by Ignatia I have often found in cases of meningitis, that patients develop certain peculiar nervous symptoms particularly towards the period of recovery- symptoms which are very difficult to account for by the meningeal condition alone.
Corresponding to the stage of nervous irritation we find, due to increased peristalsis, inclination to diarrhoea, which is painless and weakening. In the paralysed second stage we find constipation with stool thin as lead pencil. Phosphorus acts primarily on the accompanying duodenitis and hyperchlorrhydria in duodenal ulcers, but it also acts directly on the ulcer.
This infant system of medicine, the new healing art, within this short period of one hundred and fifty years, has recorded a tremendous speed of progress even in the face of strong opposition, adverse criticism unmerited ridicule and state negligence. Un-aided and ridiculed, the homoeopathic system has advanced near to perfection and has saved many an unfortunate sufferer from the very jaws of death.
The fear of death of Argentum nit. is also present in other remedies, notably Aconite and Arsenicum, although here again the differentiation is quite pronounced.

And I hold that the imputation in regard to the degree being a bogus one is true.

While orthodox medicine is utterly helpless in the case of cancer, and is unable to relieve sufferers except by poisonous dopes which naturally weaken the power of resistance of the body. homoeopathy can in practically all cases relieve the cancerous. Besides, and this is most important, homoeopathy has a large number of actual and unchallengeable cancer cures to its credit.
The skin looks unhealthy everywhere about the body, and there is a copious sweat on first going to sleep, like Arsenic. If you had only the waxiness such as Arsenic and Thuja produce with the sweat on first going to sleep, you might prescribe Arsenic. Arsenic is often the acute and Thuja the chronic. Arsenic is a chronic remedy in the psoric and syphilitic miasms.
