NOTE: Send questions to Dr. Eugene Underhill, Jr., 2010 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia,.
Questions: WHY IS IT THAT THE FIRST PRESCRIPTION IN A CHRONIC CASE OFTEN ACTS BETWEEN THAN ANY SUBSEQUENT PRESCRIPTION?.
Answer: There are several points to consider: (a) Sometimes the first prescription is the true similimum, in which cases it will naturally act better than any partial similar can ever act. (b) The case may be spoiled by too frequent repetition and this probably is the trouble in many instances. (c) Failure in removing the obstacles to recovery. When important etiologic factors are allowed to continue operating after homoeopathic treatment is undertaken the index of remedial action of even the well selected remedy progressively fails. (d) Needless prescribing of intercurrent remedies for colds, etc., when the chronic remedy would have taken care of the situation with less confusion in the long run.
Question: WHAT IS YOUR OPINION OF THE MECHANICAL OR ELECTRICAL MEANS OF REMEDY SELECTIONS?.
Answer: Undoubtedly some such method will ultimately help to put homoeopathy over the top and we should favor and not condemn such efforts. However, we should not allow ourselves to be sold prematurely on some contraption which may only work satisfactorily in the inventors own hands. Some people are so sensitive as to be able to detect vibrations on more interior planes than the rank and file of mankind. The gadgets they evolve may satisfy their own rational minds although in fact they themselves are the essential detectors of these subtle dynamic energies.
Questions: IS IT TRUE THAT MEN CAN STAND MORE HEAT THAN WOMEN?.
Answer: In general, yes. Undoubtedly more men suffer form the symptom, “Lack of vital heat”, than is the case with women.
