THE HOME MEDICINE CHEST. All remedies used by homoeopaths in the potentised form have certain features peculiar to each. Bryonia has one that is very marked and it is :worse from movement.” Whatever the illness, whether pneumonia, rheumatism, pleurisy, peritonitis, etc., the patient suffers very much on the slightest motion; the more he moves the worse he suffers.
HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES IN SURGERY. Calendula succus is very efficient as a would dressing for all sorts of lacerations, preventing suppuration and hastening healing. It is called a homoeopathic antiseptic. As a matter of fact, it is not antiseptic but probably stimulates granulation. It is recommended topically in erysipelas.
THE STORY OF MY EYES. There are various other exercise and a very important method of relaxation which are used and which are some what difficult to describe. Perhaps it would be a mistake to give all the details in this place because readers might be induced to try these methods on themselves. That would be very inadvisable and possibly dangerous. No two cases are alike. Individual treatment is called for and expert guidance is needed. Otherwise there may be dangerous results.
Each surgical suppression is followed sooner or later, by a new manifestation of the internal disorder-the same disease in another form, bearing s new name and attacking a different part of the organism to the ever increasing detriment of the patient.
ARE INJECTIONS REALLY NECESSARY. NOWADAYS injections play a large part in the treatment of all hospital patients, and it is no exaggeration to say that no in- patient at the present time is fortunate enough to finish a course of treatment without some administrations of this kind.
ABOUT BOILS AND CARBUNCLES. Although I studied homoeopathy later and graduated at a Homoeopathic College the following year, I have never found anything better to prevent boils. I asked one of the professors in the Homoeopathic College about this remedy and he said the action was homoeopathic. At any rate I have cured many people of the tendency to boils by this treatment.
CURES BY A VILLAGE SCHOOLMASTER. MORE than forty years ago a terrible epidemic of diphtheria broke out in a village in my vicinity, which was terribly fatal to the children. In a short time forty children died of diphtheria and two doctors went day and night from one house to the other looking after them but they had no success whatever. I have to bury all the children, for my friend and colleague, Johannes, did not care to bury them.
HOW NATURE CURES APPENDICITIS. Many of the symptoms of disease, instead of being pounded out of the body by violent as wholly pernicious, should rather be regarded as means for guiding the physician in the treatment he should adopt. Treatment has to be, for the most part, imitative of natural processes, and the imitation is founded upon the much- abused symptoms of the swallows concerned.
RECKLESS AND FUTILE SURGERY. LAST winter we had a case come in. This woman was thirty-two years or age. When she was seventeen she had scarlet fever and she was sick six months, under the old school treatment. She recovered sufficiently and then about six months afterward, developed a case of inflammatory rheumatism.
HINTS FOR WOULD BE VEGETARIANS. The objection to flesh, fish and and fowl is not fanciful. The present age is the age of constipation. Flesh, fish and fowl putrefy in a stagnant bowel and poison the body. Instinct warns us against putrefaction. We are horrified by putrid meat, while mouldy bread and fruit or milk which has turned sour doses not perturb us. In thousands of cases of apparently incurable disease a fleshless diet has restored the sufferer to health.
