Minus salt Dr. A Gordon once said, after experience with 37 cases, that the withholding of salt from the diet has a very beneficial effect on epileptics.

Borax [Bor]

      has been found valuable in epilepsy. The hint comes from Europe. The 1st or 2d decimal trituration is said to be best. Dr. O’Connor, one time editor of the Homoeopathic Recorder, wrote that Borax is a remedy that has done more good in dispensary practice than any other.

Melilotus [Meli]
