Arundo mauritanica [Arund]

      Dr. John V. Allen called attention to this drug a species of Italian grass as a remedy for hay fever. 3d potency or higher. It has proved beneficial in a number of cases, though it is not a specific, a thing, probably, that does not exist to fit orthodox nosology.

Chromico-kali sulphuricum.-This drug in 1x, 2x, or 3x trituration was highly commended by Dr. L. Merch Brussels as both a cure and prophylactic for hay fever. Some Americans who have tried it say it is practically a specific.

Allium cepa [All-c]

      It has been said, Don’t forget Allium cepa in hay fever, because it cures. Use 3d dilution.

Acidum succinicum crudum 3x trituration, is the drug that Dr. Morris Weiner always found effective in hay fever.

Soap dust A simple remedy, but said to be effective, is to inhale a little dry, Castile soap. Get it very dry and make as near a powder of it as possible and snuff it up the nose. May be it washes out the germs.

Sabadilla [Sabad]

      This drug is said to be the remedy where sneezing is excessive, Use 3d.

The old proverb, What is one man’s meat is another man’s poison, holds good in the treatment of hay fever and, indeed, of all other diseases. The remedy that will cure one patient will not cure another, and too often will be pronounced worthless, when yet it has merits in its own sphere. Finding the sphere or indications is the rub.
