THE HOME MEDICINE CHEST. Urtica is not at hand, use Spirits of Wine or surgical spirit; warm it by standing some in a cup in a pan of boiling water. Cover the burn with a thin layer of gauze or bandage soaked in the spirit, and as it evaporates re-moisten the dressing with the warm spirit.
SUNLIGHT AND HEALTH. I may perhaps mention as a practical point that we very soon found that ordinary window-glass cut off much of the germ-killing power of Light; so also did a layer of liquid. This last was probably one reason why we had not been anticipated in this work. There were in fact certain small difficulties of technique, for the era of cultures on solid media had not yet come.
MIRACLE CURES OF AN EYE EAR NOSE AND THROAT SPECIALIST. Psorinum as a remedy for neuritis is not so far fetched when we consider the fact that neuritis is frequently of focal infection origin in which the infecting micro-organism is the staphylococcus which happens to be also the particular germ common to all original stocks from which Psorinum is prepared.
DIET AND DENTAL DISEASE. Dental caries and pyorrhoea would become diseases of past if everyone and especially expectant and nursing mothers ate sufficient uncooked and properly cooked vegetables, raw fruit, fresh milk, eggs, butter, cheese, honey, dates and raisins, and reduced the intake of meat, cereals and refined sugar.
THE ANIMALS PAGES. The homoeopathic preparation Distemperinum given internally is a safe and effective remedy as a prophylactic. It is prepared from the tissue of a dog suffering from distemper and given in an attenuated form. A dose of the No. 5 potency (made in 5 grain powders by homoeopathic chemists) should be given twice a week for a month, commencing when the puppies are about six weeks old.
CURES BY RHUS TOXICODENDRON. SOME twenty-five years ago Jesse Burt, son of the late Dr. Wm. H. Burt, was modelling miniature figures for exhibits at the Field Museum of Chicago. A young Indian, about twenty-four years of age, was brought in from the West to act as a model. He was six feet tall and a fine specimen physically. As soon as he got to the big city, he bought a new pair of shoes and started out to see the sights.
FOOD AND HEALTH. The whole country was placed on a low-protein diet. Believers in high protein suggested that the resistance against disease would decrease. My expectations were to the contrary. Who won? Well, the result was a great victory for the low-protein diet. The state of health improved as never before.
A CURE OF PERSISTENT GIDDINESS. MRS. R., a healthy looking woman, forty-nine years old, who was a hard-working housekeeper, of cheerful disposition, consulted me in May, 1931, complaining of giddiness which came on when she turned her head. Her complaint was aggravated when she was out of doors, and she told me that there was a tendency to fall forward. Her general health was good, her blood pressure normal, her periods were regular.
Without wishing to boast in any way or to blow my own trumpet, I think that I can say of myself that I have been fairly successful at my profession, at any rate, as judged by the ordinary standard of success, viz., professional reputation and financial competence.
HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES IN PALPITATION OF HEART. Spigelia, especially in heart trouble following rheumatism, worse mornings, while lying down and when stooping; heart action irregular, hands and feet cold. Veratrum album, especially nights, worse from motion, better while lying, skin pale, hands and feet cold. Anacardium in old people with weak memory.
