NEWS AND NOTES. Our readers are well acquainted with the the quality of the contents of the journal from the samples we have presented them with, and with the support of all these live Homoeopathic organisations at its back it is bound to be a power in the world of homoeopathy. We have pleasure in commending it to the notice of our reader.
CICHORIUM INTYBUS. As indicated in “THE HOMOEOPATHIC WORLD” of December, 1930, the Cichorium patient is possessive and dominant; desirous to control others. They will use any means in their power to attract attention to themselves, and to interfere with the happiness and freedom of others. They are often talkative, fussy, nagging, and may simulate or use illness to obtain sympathy.
ELASTICITY OF THE CARDIAC MUSCLE. No complete solution of any problem can be reached by leaving out one of the essential factors. It resembles the attempt to solve a complicated problem in Higher mathematics, with one or more of the essential factors left out.
HOMOEOPATHY AND LONGEVITY. SAMUEL HAHNEMANN and many of his successors down to the present day have frequently asserted that orthodox medication shortens life and that homoeopathic treatment promises longevity.
OUR SUPPLEMENT. READERS may care to know that the Supplement to the Dictionary of Materia Medica, parts, parts of which have been appearing in our since 1925, is now approaching the end of the letter A. When this is completed the matter will be issued in a separate volume. The articles were written a good many years ago and put away until opportunity offered for printing them.
PULSATILLA 30 IN MENSTRUAL PAIN. A YOUNG lady of 21, slender, dark, muscular, deep voiced, energetic, but exceedingly found of fresh air, told me over the telephone that she was attacked by a terrible colicky pain which she had at every menstrual period, and which usually lasts at least twenty-four hours.
THE CHEMISTRY OF ALUMINIUM. Some people are more susceptible to aluminium poisoning than others, and these susceptibles would naturally be the people to suffer most. Symptoms would at first be mild and indefinite, but would gradually increase and the cause would be very likely overlooked.
TOXICOPHIS PUGNANS. Some of the symptoms met with were the result of poisoning, as in snake bite, one of which is recorded under Toxicophis-the virus of the moccasin snake-in Clarkes Dictionary, page 1448. After the bite of this serpent, if the victim lives, symptoms of pain and fever recur annually at exactly the same period for many years, with decreasing intensity each year.
