A HOMOEOPATH VIEWS PSYCHOSOMATIC MEDICINE. I should like to say that homoeopaths, as a group, are far better suited to practice the tenets of psychosomatic medicine than are the allopaths. The idea that a patients bodily ills as well as his personality, should be treated as a unit is second nature to homoeopaths. Good homoeopathic prescribers are invariably good listeners. They do not give the patient the impression that they are in a hurry. They are always sympathetic.
AN EFFECTIVE PLAN FOR INFANT FEEDING. Habits and preference in respect to food and drink can be given a healthful and hygienic direction during the early months and years of life. Why not give the children the best things in life, the best in food to build strong bodies, intelligent and sympathetic training to insure emotional stability, careful instruction and good literature to enlighten the mind.
COMMENTS ON LITTLE USED REMEDIES. Gnaphalium polycephalum, known as the common ever-lasting, is a very valuable remedy in the treatment of sciatica when the pain is worse when the sufferer is lying down, from motion, but, oddly enough, better while sitting on the affected thigh. There are numerous remedies homoeopathic to the symptoms of sciatica, but this modest plant, first proved by Dr. William Banks many years ago, fills its own peculiar place.
EDITORIAL. The present epidemic of Infantile paralysis has given an opportunity to Indian Homoeopaths to prove the curative value of our drugs in the treatment of a disease for which allopaths offer o hope. The results obtained from the use of Homoeopathic drugs should be sent to our office for publication in the Herald.
