Such a comparison reveals the individual character of the drug much better than the fashionable and pretended scientific lists or registers of temperaments. Individual symptoms do not restrain the sphere of activity of the drug. All the symptoms are individual in so far as they reflect more or less completely the dynamic relation of the drug to the organism of the prover.


15.Are there many a suggestions for examining people for drunken driving? I try knee reflexes, response for eye pupils to light, pulse, and smell their breath. I realize it is not a perfect test but do not know of any better-F.C.WOODRUFF.

16.The following appeared in the Homoeopathic World. can you offer any suggestion to our English friend?.

“I wonder whether any of your readers could dell me what medicines cover the following. I have been unsuccessful in tracing them in either Clarkes Dictionary of Materia Medica or Kents Repertory, thought I should not like to assert that some of them might not be discoverable in those after a still more exhaustive search”-A.C.

a.Erosion of tonsils.

b.Hard nodule on vocal cords.

c.Invariable formation of ulcer at point where cheek is bitten.

m. Sensation , when riding over any but the smoothest road, as of the nerves shaken up throughout the whole torso, particularly in the region of the stomach the agitation being quite incommensurate with the trifling causes, and lasting a while after the cause had ceased to operate.”.


The following case is presented by Dr.C.Gorden of Edinburgh, Scotland, for analysis and remedy selection:.

M.H. hairdresser, age 22.Dysmenorrhoea very severe formerly. Some doctor prescribed anterior pituitary tablets for it. She took about 800 tablets in six months, and another 800 during the next 3-4 years., Result acromegaly.

Bones of head and face enlarged, and shoulders four inches wider than formerly.

Constant drowsiness,no ameliorated by sleep.

Attacks of exhaustion, must sleep.

Occasional migraine headaches.,.

Copious sweat. Skin pale and dirty looking,more so when cold.


Fear when alone in house but can conquer it.


Claustrophobia. Forgets words.

Very sensitive to HEAT and COLD.

Goes blue with cold.

Should this patient the treated on the totality of the symptoms or should the pituitary poisoning be antidoted prior to constitutional treatment, and if so, by what?.

-This case is a very interesting one, showing a through proving of pituitary substance carried to the extreme, One of the most difficult things to manage is the unbalancing of the system by glandular therapy,and bordering on this and associated with it are the effects of the sera and vaccines on the whole economy; so little do we know of the effects of the endocrine on the ratio of balance of the whole economy that it seems most unwise to ever resort to this system of therapy. However, it seems to have been done most through put in this case, and with most unpleasant results.

The best way to antidote the poison of this insidious organic substance is to treat the patient symptomatically,and that will antidote; this is the only method by which we can know that we are setting the house in order, and let Nature correct the difficulty in her own good way. In other words, the totality of the symptomatology in this condition must rule, and not the pathology.

I have worked this case out with Boenninghausen,using the following rubrics:.

Sleepiness caused by various things, page 243.

Intoxication with sleep, page 243.

Unrefreshed sleep. page 244.

Sweats easily, page 264.

Worse after becoming cold, page 276.

Fear when along, page 271.

Worse vaults (claustrophobia), page 305.

Memory lost, page 22.

Alternating moods, page 17.

Swelling of bones, page 203.

the ranking remedies are Phosphorus 48 (14 of the 15 symptoms appearing); pulsatilla 47 (13); Lycopodium 46 (13); Conium 46 (13).

Pulsatilla lacks the symptoms “far of being alone” and the dirty skin,both of which seem to be very prominent.
