A remarkable case in which one disease killed another has been reported. The six children of man in an advance tubercular condition contracted chicken pox. The man also caught the complaint, which developed into erysipelas, and this killed the tuberculosis. The man has now recovered and is following his occupation as a farm worker. According to a leading London specialist, such case, though rare, are not so astonishing as they sound.
The enthusiasm of some over the “discovery” that serological methods and results are “homoeopathic in principle” is so naive as to suggest that they are really moved, perhaps subconsciously, not so much by a desire to strengthen homoeopathy, as to exculpate themselves for abandoning its established technic and adopting the newer, more impressive and more popular hypodermic method.
This formula for a perfect meal is offered without prejudice to other perfect meals. It is fitting and proper that the diet should be as varied as circumstances permit; the pleasures of the table are legitimate within bounds; a combination of meat, potatoes, bread and butter and salad may also be a perfect meal. The meal here described has a place in the dietary of both health and disease.
The effects of it can often be realized by the third day. It is also of great value in chronic cases and complications that come from mistreatment of the disease by empiric methods that are so commonly resorted to, to relieve the distressing symptoms. If one should supply himself with the remedies that I am suggesting, and follow correctly their indications, the treatment of whooping cough would become a pleasure.
There is no improved homoeopathy except improved fraud. Boenninghausen was right when he said” “Ever more gloriously will Homoeopathy unfold its banner; ever more brightly will it beam in the firmament of science; ever more full of curative virtues she will show her wonderful powers if she is not decked with false finger or disfigured with borrowed attire or ornaments”.
The homoeopath has laws of cure by which, if he is familiar with them, he is armed for successful conflict. He goes to the bedside not cringing with doubt, but bravely and with confidence. He is grounded in principles which are in accord with God-given forces for good. He is equipped not with poisonous compounds as remedies, but with delicate pharmaceuticals, potentized drugs from which all save the curative elements have been eliminated.
All this verifies the result of our own homoeopathic provings and for this reason, has important interest for us. Among certain curative effects, these experiments noted, that after some months, certain cases of psoriasis improved. From our homoeopathic standpoint, Antimonium tart. has never been looked upon as useful in the treatment of psoriasis patients.
These experiences brought me gradually to the realization that the poet Longfellow was right when he sand, “There is no death! What seems so is transition”; that the current, morbid idea of death is a figment of mans perverted imagination grounded in ignorance and fear; that in truth, as St. Paul said, “Christ has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light.
Teeth well built, where there is enough bone food in the system so they have plenty of enamel to grow over and cover the tooth perfectly mean sound teeth, teeth we can depend upon for good work for year-but we must continue to feed these teeth-give the orange juice, whole raw milk and a diet with plenty of good green vegetables-and be sure to eat some raw vegetables every day!.
Unwilling to die, Cornaro translated this general prescription into a special one by selecting certain articles which agreed with his stomach and reducing the total quantity of his food to the smallest amount that would enable him to live. He demonstrated the fallacy of the popular notion that what agreed with the palate must also agree with the stomach.
For homoeopathy the acceptance of the Od doctrine affords further support. In our future laboratories a dark room should not be lacking. The sensitives, therefore, are everywhere. In mediaeval times they tortured the insane, holding them possessed of the devil. With advancing knowledge came the humane treatment. And for the many sensitive patients, a better knowledge will provide a more reasonable therapy.
