HOMOEOPATHIC SENSITISATION. People who have treated for many years with large doses of allopathic drugs frequently do hot respond at all if given homoeopathic medicine, but if homoeopathic treatment is persevered with for some time normal reaction to homoeopathic remedies occurs, even in the most stubborn cases. Persistency is often rewarded only after months of endeavour.
ORIGINAL COMMUNICATIONS. Some persons cannot be in the attic of a house whilst a few grains of ipecacuanha are being powdered in the basement without being powerfully affected thereby. In THE HOMOEOPATHIC WORLD of July, 1885, I quoted the report of a case from the British Medical Journal of February 7th of the same year, in which a medical man tells how he nearly killed a patient by simply applying a linseed poultice, though the patient protested that every time such a poultice had been applied she had had an intense attack of asthma.
HAY FEVER AND ITS HOMOEOPATHIC TREATMENT. Such receptivity is in the nature of things in inverse proportion to the state of biological equilibrium. All this is interesting, but it does not tell us anything as to the cause of this receptivity. The problem has been treated also by the famous Dunham in his work on the in his study on susceptibility published in the Transactions of the I.H.A.

OBSERVATIONS ON THE ACTION OF REMEDIES.
