Besides the Homoeopathic physicians, the Homoeopathic chemists, manufacturing or dispensing, are responsible for the rise or fall of Homoeopathy, as the purity of drug is indispensably necessary for the therapeutic success. These persons should remember that on their honesty and integrity depend the life of dying patients and also the future of Homoeopathy. Unfortunately the the present generation of Homoeopathic chemists do not deserve our praise.

HOMOEOPATHY AND SURGERY

If we concede that surgery is necessary, let us not neglect out duties as homoeopathic physicians; let us not forget that surgery does not cure. Let the surgeon do his work, and we will continue to take care of the patient, prescribing for him during his incarceration, and if he still needs it, after his release from the hospital. It will be homoeopathy that cures the patient after the menace to life is removed.

INFANTS EMERGENCY CASES

The chief characteristic symptom of this condition is a husky voice resembling crowing or croak from which, probably, the name “Croup” has been derived. This crowing is termed as “stridor” and is a sure indication of insufficiency of air supply to the lungs causing great difficulty in breathing. The stridor is noticeable only during an attack. Fever and cough are two of its accompanying features.

Polychrest & Less Used Remedies

WHAT IS WRONG WITH HOMOEOPATHY

This writer also wants all the remedies listed not in alphabetical order but classed under Botanical, Zoological and Mineralogical order and contends that by doing so it will bring the Homoeopathic Materia Medica in line with the other Science and thereby gain its rightful place in Modern Science. Some are keen that homoeopathic remedies in potency should be scientifically analysed to prove its action on disease.
