CLINICAL DIRECTORY


List of alphabetical arrangement of the disease and common indicated remedy for the sa, e….


The object of the Clinical Directory is to enlarge the utility of this manual by prescribing for numerous diseases and conditions, arranged alphabetically, that could not otherwise be included in the work, and to give at a glance some of the leading remedies that the Author, and other physicians, have found valuable in practice.

To use this portion intelligently, it is essential to possess a knowledge of Materia Medica, as it is only intended to refresh the memory of the initiated; or to consult it always in connection with a good work of that description.

*The contractions alt. int. and ext., signify alternately with, internally, and externally respectively.

While we have endeavoured in arrange the remedies in the order of their importance, or in that in which they are most likely to be required, our success cannot always be taken for granted; and, indeed, in some cases, our necessarily brief list may not include the true homoeopathic remedy at all. Individuality and idiosyncrasy may greatly modify the choice. The perfection of prescribing lies in a concentration of attention on individuals, and in bringing into the focus of thought, as it were, the morbid symptoms and signs present, with the various circumstances of parentage, habits of life, proclivities to diseased action, and any peculiarities which may influence the patient.

Finally, we take the liberty to add, the Directory consists of prescriptions that have been largely tested and amply confirmed by clinical (bed-side) experience.
