PROPHYLACTIC MEDICINE, ALLOPATHIC AND HOMOEOPATHIC.

To the sanitary engineers, and not to the allopathic doctor, belongs credit for whatever real success has been accomplished in disease prevention.

Centuries of blundering and groping by the rule of “trial and error” (mostly error) by so-called medical scientists has only brought multiplied miseries, increased sickness and shortened lives to millions of unsuspecting victims.

The marked lessening of epidemic diseases such as small-pox, diphtheria, scarlet fever, etc., has been entirely due to better sanitation, hygiene and isolation. Before the Dick test or the scarlet fever innoculations were applied, the disease scarlet fever was declining greatly in prevalence and virulency; the same is true of diphtheria; nevertheless the death rate from that disease still runs about 12 percent in spite of the highly praised curative powers of anti-toxin, that is almost now universally given because of pressure from health authorities everywhere.

Alexis Carrel in his book, Man the Unknown, states that medical science has succeeded in saving more infants and protecting the youth from the ravages of acute self-limiting disease,but that more people are dying in early middle life of chronic degenerative diseases, cancer, kidney and heart diseases, than ever before.

And in the light of physiologic law, it is logical to conclude that the everlasting bombardment of the blood stream from infancy and early youth to maturity, with the numerous vaccines and serums, all products of disease, together with the noxious and deadly coal tar and sulfa drugs, known by dozens of trade names, that make up the armamentarium of allopathic medicine, might well be the causative factor in the alarming increase of the so called degenerative diseases.

To those diseases might be added the constant increase of mental and nervous disorders now afflicting the human race, brought on and aggravated by coal tar sedatives and bromides.

In recent years there has been a marked increase in so- called rare and unusual blood diseases, almost all fatal.

It is a recognized fact even by the old school vendors and prescribers of these coal tar drugs that they produce marked changes in the blood elements of those who partake of them.

probably the most vital and important medical problem to confront the race now and in the future is that of malaria. And here again outside of sanitation, medical science has no medicine to cure this alarming and rapidly spreading disease.

The drastic treatment used to control the chills only suppresses the disease by driving it into the vital centers of the organism. Every soldier or individual infected with malaria is a certain potential chronic invalid for the rest of his life unless he is fortunate enough to receive the homoeopathic remedy needed to cure his individual case.

The best prophylactic treatment against all disease, both acute and chronic, is building up vital resistance, by producing a harmonious physiologic process in the body organism. And the homoeopathic remedy does just that thing, with no trace of consequential drug or serum miasm involved. Children and young adults treated homoeopathically develop immunity against all acute disorders or throw them off, leaving better health behind. And older people live longer and in great comfort to perform their accustomed uses easier and more satisfactorily.

Homoeopathy has developed a number of prophylactic remedies against infectious and contagious diseases, such as small-pox, scarlet fever, diphtheria, infantile paralysis, as well as wonderful emergency remedies against trauma, lacerations, cuts and broken bones, burns, brain and spinal concussions, all of which would be invaluable for use in the army and navy, did not a fanatical and prejudiced medical oligarchy prevent such use.

And the defenders of the nation who prefers such treatment and refuse to accept the orthodox treatment of empirical medicine are jailed and disgraced for no other crime than daring to think and reason for themselves, the supposed right of every American.

What hypocrites Americans are shouting to the world in brazen tones about the glories of the “four freedoms,” while piling insults, humiliation and physical torture on the brave men who offer their lives on the worlds battlefields against the enemies of the nation!.

Never before has the world needed the benign touch of homoeopathic healing as it does now and will need in the near future, and our most passionate wish is to see this system given the chance ….. to prove again and again its claims of superior success in both prophylaxis & cures.
