COMPARATIVE DRUG SELECTION, BRYONIA ALBA

Trinks says of it that it is “The sovereign remedy in all inflammations of the serous membranes which have advanced to the stage of serous effusion”. As long as the fever being still of a sharp, well pronounced, synochal character, Bryonia is of no use but at this time Aconite and Belladonna are the specific remedies which arrest the inflammation. After it has been developed to the stage of serous exudation in all cases Bryonia shows itself a remedy of quick and certain operations.

TAKING THE CASE

Developing a keen observation gives a great amount of information that all the “pumping” in the world cannot give. The manner in which they tell you things, their reaction to what you say and do, and, of course, the whole gamut of observable physical symptoms furnish a gold mine of facts. To do this requires a long practice and close application.

VERBENA OFFICINALIS

This is a remedy for those of definite spiritual advancement, who are endeavoring to live lives of altruism and services, and yet through a deficiency of some quality, such as wisdom, courage, steadfastness, tolerance, etc., are suffering as a consequence. They are the people who, quietly and uncomplainingly, make many sacrifices, and whose desire and object in life is to be of service to others.

HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FREQUENTLY INDICATED IN GASTRIC AND DUODENAL ULCERS

The Belladonna case is seldom anaemic nor do they present catarrhal symptoms. Pain is the big symptom and it is due to the hyperesthesia of the sensory nerves. The sensitiveness and pain over the stomach may be so severe that they cant tolerate even the weight of clothing. The pains are worse by every jar or motion. The pains are usually lancinating, but occasionally the are throbbing in nature.

POINTERS

We have several remedies which may be indicated in periodic headaches. In considering “Sunday headaches” it may not be amiss to think of the relationship to a Saturday night bath, following a busy day when the patient has been trying to get ready for Sunday. Sulphurs well known aggravation from bathing may show up more sharply when the patient is tired from the weeks work.

PROVINGS OF LAC VACCINUM BUTYRACEUM

On examining a patient there is not only the difficulty of estimating symptoms on the part of the physician, but he must bear in mind the possibility of the patient misleading him, through a variety of reasons-unintentionally, through ignorance, or through a desire to conceal the nature of the disease, or again from fear that he is actually suffering from a malady the existence of which he would prefer to ignore.

SCARLATINA

Hahnemann taught the efficacy of smell doses. He showed that when drugs are prescribed according to the homoeopathic law, it is indispensably necessary that the doses be small, and that infinitesimal doses are more efficacious than large ones.

A STUDY OF HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES IN RELATION FOR TO RHEUMATIC TROUBLES

Guaiacum is useful in rheumatic affections, especially after the abuse of mercury; in rheumatism with contraction of tendons or fibrous tissues; in the growing pains of children; in women suffering from rheumatism when associated with ovarian and menstrual irregularities; when ther is a tendency for alternating tonsillar and rheumatic troubles.

URTICARIA HIVES OR NETTLE RASH

A colored woman in her early twenties, presented a case of urticaria, in which great welts appeared on her back and chest, also on the hips. These lesions had persisted for some months and were particularly annoying at the regular menstrual periods, together with serious cramping of muscles of the back. After a short course of Apis mel. 30th, the welts disappeared. A few days each month of B & Ts Thyroid and Ovarian in potency, rendered the periods painless.

THE RELATION OF CASE TAKING TO REPERTORY AND MATERIA MEDICA STUDY

Some degree of uniformity in case records would enhance our prestige in the medical field. Few patients are unimpressed by the physicians reference to a well kept resume. The value of a complete analysis is only too apparent in the unsuspected legal contingency. Miasmatic study is hopeless without a well taken image of the disease permanently before one for consideration, comparisons, and the nothing of perhaps later modifications.

A TRIBUTE

Only four weeks before the home-call she was in her office. During the days in which she was confined to bed her message repeatedly was, “Tell the members of the International Hahnemannian Association and of the American Foundation for Homoeopathy to be true to God, to homoeopathy and to one another.”.

CARRIWITCHETS

The history of the case would indicate syphilis as the probable cause. Recently he has complained of a tickling sensation in the larynx and pharynx which, at times, causes a cough. Physical exertion, talking and laughing always brings on wheezing cough which continues for some minutes and brings up a slight amount of tough mucus with some relief.

EDITORIAL

Reared in the rural part of Connecticut, from an ancestry rich in family traditions and with the true New England love of learning, she spent herself in preparation for the work of teaching; then grasping the wonderful truths of homoeopathy, she pressed on and made herself a physician where she attained great success in her profession. She studied under Kent and became one of his greatest followers.

HOMOEOPATHY AND DUMB ANIMALS

Two of them were as large as a nickel coin and the appearance of the excrescences was just like a cauliflower. After a short study of the repertory I administered one dose of Thuja 10M. The curative action could be seen after two days from the administration of the remedy by the shrink age ad disappearance of the last appearing growths and in the improvement of the appetite.

PHYSICS OF HIGH DILUTIONS

Probably the physical laws governing high dilutions differ from those which govern crude solutions as much as the laws governing high-frequency electricity differ from those governing low-voltage direct currents. Since the laws governing them are not known, a discussion of the physics of high dilutions must be merely suggestive.

PRURIGO

The master also particularly warns us, not to put leading or suggestive questions; or, in other words, we are to avoid making inquiries which may be answered simply in the affirmative or the negative. It may be necessary, unless the patient be in danger or in great distress, to defer prescribing until some of the effects of the medicine have passed away.
