Cattle feeding in the open pastures of fresh food give a milk of higher nutritive and vitamin content than those kept indoors and fed on grain, hay and dry foods, showing the importance of tracing our food supplies to their primal source and making certain that the source is adequate and natural.


I wonder if any of our readers have verified the strong affinity for the ear the Cupressus law. has, as brought to our attention first by Bach in The Homoeopathic World [ The Homoeopathic World, Vol, LXV. Feb. 1930, p.36 ] and later published in the Recorder. [ The Homoeopathic Recorder, Vol. XLV, April 1930, p. 297 ]. I have had several brilliant successes with the remedy. One that comes to mind at the moment is here taken from my records:.

Miss D., age 23, ear trouble since childhood, worse the last seven years following a severe suppuration of both ears with scarlet fever.

Hearing diminished, worse in the right, one had to speak rather loudly to her.

Humming in the ears, the left worse.

Sensation of plug in the ears, aggravated by the least coldness.

Sounds seem double, a sort of echo.

Nostrils always stopped.

Damp weather aggravates all the above.

Personally sensitive to cold; coldness even in warm weather.

June 11, 1931. Cupressus law. 30th, three times daily for ten days.

July 10. Improvement suspected.

Aug. 19. General and local improvement, a temperamental moderation, being noticeably brightened. The left ear felt more stopped at one time, then bled, after which the hearing was better. Later a loud bang occurred, after which she could hear a watch tick, the first time in several years. The hearing has remained good ever since, also the nasal conditions.




The final meeting of the season was held at the Presser Auditorium, 1714 Chestnut street on Thursday evening, May 5th. A demonstration health dinner was served at seven oclock. About forty guests were present.

The entire evening was devoted to the subject of diet, in response to requests on the part of student members of the Round Table.

Doctor Charles L. Olds welcomed the guests and explained briefly the purpose of the meetings which are held the first Thursday evening of each month from October to May, at the offices of the physician members. Doctor Olds stated that the Round Table exists for the benefit of undergraduate medical students and others interested in real Hahnemannian homoeopathy. Third and fourth year students and interns from Hahnemann Medical College and nearby hospitals have been attending the meetings ever since the group began to function three years ago. Physicians and students from other institutions are invited to attend the meeting which are conducted on the basis of an open forum.

Doctor Herbert A. Roberts, of Derby, Connecticut, stressed the importance of helpful co-operation among the various organizations and groups which are working in the interest of homoeopathy. He called attention to the fifty-third annual meeting of the International Hahnemannian Association to be held at the Hotel Powhatan, Washington, D.C., on June ninth, tenth and eleventh, He urged all who could to attend. Doctor Roberts also spoke of the post-graduate course of instruction given by the American Foundation of Homoeopathy each summer in Boston. The eleventh annual session opens on July eleventh.

Doctor Eugene Underhill, Jr. introduced the speaker of the evening. An opportunity for all to ask questions was afforded after the address and many interesting points were brought out.

Doctor William H. Dieffenbach of New York is an exceptionally talented speaker and what he says is abundantly supported by a broad background of knowledge and experience in medicine, chemistry and physiotherapy. He is author of a text book on hydro-therapy and for fifteen years was professor of applied therapeutics in the New York Homoeopathic College and Flower Hospital. The subject of Doctor Dieffenbachs address was Food.

The doctor emphasized the importance of a well balanced diet, one that insures a supply of all the essential mineral salts and vitamins. Purified, refined and processed foods are apt to be lacking in these vital elements, and, unless the missing factors are supplied in available form, one or more of the deficiency diseases will insidiously and inevitably undermine the constitution. The relationship between xerophthalmia and vitamin A deficiency has been well established. Milk, butter-fat, egg- yolk, apples, pears, tomatoes, cod-liver oil and green leaf vegetables are all carries of vitamin A and are therefore protective foods against xerophthalmia.

Beri-beri, or polyneuritis, appears to be in part at lest due to vitamin B deficiency, although foods long thought to contain only B have recently been shown to be carries of another essential factor now known as vitamin G. Deficiency of the latter causes pellagra.
