Note- Send question to Dr. Eugene Underhill, Jr., 2010 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, Penna.
Question: REGARDING PROBLEMS OF IMMUNIZATION.
Answer: The best immunization against diphtheria, smallpox, influenza, pneumonia and other acute illnesses can be obtained in three ways:.
1. The correct constitutional homoeopathic remedy.
2. A well corrected and balanced diet to insure and adequate alkaline reserve and protection against deficiencies.
3. A routine of living which includes sufficient physical activity in the open air.
The homoeopathic remedy will protect the majority of people against any serious infections or contagious disease. Immunity should be general, not specific. General immunization implies, good health, bodily vigor and normal resistance.
Specific immunization, on the other hand, signifies a warped constitution with resistance exaggerated in one direction and correspondingly deficient in other ways. It is probable that the increased immunity to smallpox and diphtheria is being obtained at the cost of increased susceptibility to malignant disease. If the protective value of hygienic living were more generally appreciated public health would cease to be the serious problem that it is today.
Question: IS THERE ANY VALID OBJECTION TO THE USE OF THE TWELVE SALTS IN CONNECTION WITH THE HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDY?.
Answer: The materia medica includes all the Twelve Tissue Remedies and homoeopathic physicians prescribe these medicines on the same basis symptoms similarity as they do all other drugs in their armamentarium. To prescribe two or more drugs at the same time or in rapid sequences is to render it impossible to know when he succeeds and when he fails. The best prescribes always try to find the one similimum.
