SURGERY NEEDS HOMOEOPATHIC SUPPORT. Disillusion your patients of the fact that they are wasting time by taking medicine.

But here one must be very watchful and quick to recognize the need for immediate surgery.
CLINICAL EXPERIENCES WITH NATRUM MURIATICUM. Case histories found in our publications, together with my own experiences, have convinced me that no remedy deserves a thorough clinical study more than Natrum mur. In fact, even our best provings need supplementing by clinical observations, as it is these observations that enable us to eliminate the furtive element of arbitrariness from our prescribing.
HOMOEOPATHY IN A CASE OF CHRONIC RHEUMATIC FEVER. The acceptable biostatistical data assembled from many thousands of cases show that rheumatic fever usually develops from age four to puberty with the average age of onset being about six years.
