EDITORIAL. The French are responsible for the promising research in the application of ultrasonics to Homoeopathy. Dr. L. Wurmser, the distinguished and indefatigable director of Les Laboratories Homoeopathiques de France in Paris has been conducting experiments on the solubilization of insoluble substances and the actual “dynamization” and preparation of nosodes with ultrasonics.
BORDERLINE HEART CASES. Modern developments in the field of medicine and homoeopathy features the Southern scientific program on Tuesday. Dr. Amaro Azevedo, physician to the President of Brazils family, was given half a page in the Memphis newspapers as he spoke on smoking as a causative factor of disease with particular stress on angina and arteriosclerosis.
CARBO ANIMALIS. This remedy is indicated so frequently in cases of advanced pathology that its value in functional disorders is often over- looked. All disease begins in the functional plane and, unless checked, progresses toward structural change and incurability. The homoeopathic remedy is truly life saving and health restoring in the early stages of chronic disease. In terminal conditions we can only hope for palliation. The majority of patients apply for treatment somewhere between these two extremes.
THE SCIENTIFIC PRACTICE OF MODERN, ORTHODOX THERAPEUTICS. Orthodox medicine diagnoses and treats diseases, not patients; the latter are forgotten in the physicians efforts to eradicate their diseases and too often they pay the price in an untimely and unnecessary exitus, with family and friends mollified by the thought that all that medical science could do, was done. This is one of the many reasons why the practice of Hahnemannian therapy is dying in the United State.
THE RELATIVE VALUE OF SYMPTOMS. Sometimes the physician may be compelled to ask three or four indirect questions to ascertain the verity or sureness of one symptoms. To illustrate: in order to know to what temperature group the patient belongs the physician will ask, “How sensitive to cold are you? How are you affected by a hot room? how does the suns heat affect you? How much clothing do you require to keep warm?
A CASE OF PRENATAL SUPPRESSION. Having been fortunate enough to find the remedy Diphtherinum and its complement, Causticum, for this baby, I now learned the rest of the case history, withheld at the earlier visits. The baby was expected in June. In December, before Christmas, his mother suddenly suffered an inflammation of the eyes, which were very red, and very sensitive to light.
CONFIRMATION-A CASE REPORT. Digging in the garden, painting, sanding, etc., brings on this pain acutely. After prolonged physical examinations in the Navy he was discharged-no diagnosis. After discharge he consulted specialists and was re-examined in our large Military Hospital.
