Patients with the history of severe rheumatic fever, scarlet fever, diphtheria or any other disease causing heart complications through suppressive treatment must be conservatively handled and if there is an actual lesion present the potential for trouble is very great. In heart cases sudden increase or decrease in weight are both dangerous and a sudden stepping up of physical exercise is simply asking for the worst.
No propaganda is so insidious widespreading and harmful to human health, as are the advertised nostrums acclaimed over many radio stations; nearly every hour of the day and far into the night the vicious and venal tirade keeps up.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ORTHODOX AND THE HOMOEOPATHIC DIAGNOSTIC VIEWPOINTS AND METHODS OF TREATMENT. The average orthodox physician of today practices many of these centuries old methods which Hahnemann condemned. Diseases are not due to any of the suppositions of the orthodox school, neither are they due to maladjustment of the spine and least of all to those purely spiritual errors the Christian Scientists would have us believe.
It is my aim in this paper to give as short, concise, terse, as practical a discussion of the correct management of diabetes in most of its phases as possible. Realizing that among practitioners at large these metabolic diseases are handled so poorly, it is my endeavor in this paper to improve our therapeutic skill in this branch of medicine.
The Pulsatilla patient is glad, mad and sad, all moods within a few minutes. Oh! how earnestly they can cry, and how mad and sad they become! They often have some good excuse for all these moods. Usually of a mild, yielding disposition; seldom thirsty; want the open air; cannot eat fats, crave sweets but the stomach is disordered from over indulgence.
Human nature is an odd mixture of credulity and incredulity. If you tell a man that there are two hundred and seventy billion stars he will accept your word for it, but if you put up a sign “Fresh Pain” he is never satisfied until he proves it is fresh. I am hoping that all of you here gathered, interested in homoeopathy, will both believe what is to follow and put it to the test.
This paper is not well adapted for reading in convention, but should be of use to those who are interested in treating tumors as an armchair study of certain trails leading to cures.
Patients with a badly damaged heart may manifest a surprising amount of vitality and an eagerness to be up and doing. They may easily persuade members of the family that they are only losing strength through inactivity. It is well for the physician to realize that over exertion proves fatal in many cases.
