HOMOEOPATHIC TINCTURES

IMPORTED TINCTURES Whenever practicable Hahnemann made his tincture from the fresh succulent plants and parts of plants. For it had been observed that during the process of drying many volatile constituents were lost outright, and in addition such, changes wrought by the oxidizing action of the air that portions of the juice would be rendered insoluble no matter how careful the plant be dried. Of all plants indigenous to Europe the...

SULPHUR WITH ITS THERAPEUTIC EFFECT

By O.S. Sanders, M.D., Boston. Sulphur is combustible, simple element, and although supposed to contain hydrogen, is classed in the mineral kingdom. It has been said that Sulphur is the king of remedies, around which centres the whole Materia Medica, and all because it has been credited with greather exciting forces to produce curative results than any other drug, especially in chronic diseases. There is one well-defined...

ACIDIUM NITRICUM

The great importance of Nitric Acid in practice appears to me to be founded, almost like that of the gold, in the abuse of Mercury. It is mostly the antidotal virtues of this remedy which makes it one of the most important of our Materia Medica Although this medicament is known to the Allopaths, too, in this regard, it can hardly be possible to see so many cure with it in the common large doses as prescribed by them as with the mild...

MORAL, IN ADVANCE: SUBSCRIBE FOR HAHNEMANN’S CHRONIC DISEASES

“Do you ever stop to think, you liberalist in Homoeopathy, where our system of practice would have been to-day had Hahnemann, Jahr, Hartmann, Boenninghausen, Hering, Dunham, and other bright and shining lights in Homoeopathy, the men who made it what it is, followed out your ideas and practices and called upon Homoeopathy in the simpler conditions only? Did they not succeed better with their applications of Aconitum, Belladonna,...

ONLY A LOCAL QUESTION

The Buffalo Medical and Surgical Journal, in commenting on the now famous speech of Mr. Ernest Hart, at the Pan-American Congress, where in he charged the Homoeopaths with being “quacks,” proved it by the dictionary, and made a spectacle of himself generally, says: “It seems a pity that the otherwise harmonious proceedings of the Congress should have been disturbed by such an address. However much we may be willing to tolerate a...

SOLAR THERAPEUTICS

In a recent paper read before the San Francisco County Medical Society (Southern California Practitioner), Dr. O.V. Thayaer, of that city, contributed some decidedly original and, perhaps, very useful, information to the medical world. From that paper we condense the following. Dr. Thayaer treats the diseases named, by the concentrated rays of the sun (solar cautery), to wit: Capillary aneurisms, varicose veins, indolent, chancroidal...

THE VIRUS OF PHTHISIS- WHAT SHALL WE CALL IT

By J. Compton Burnett, M.D., London. A kind friend sends me the Medical Advance December, 1893, and on page 193 begins a paper on “Tuberculinum,” by Dr. H.P.Holmes, of Omaha. I have read this paper, which breaks no new ground, and I feel rather disappointed to find all its infomation secured in third hand, excepting always Dr. Holmes’s own experience with the remedy, Bacillinum. The only point I take up is where Dr. Holmes charges me...

THE APPROPRIATE REMEDY VERSUS MORPHIA IN SUBDUING PAIN

I take pleasure in forwarding to you the particulars of a Case, which I believe should have a tendency to prove the efficiency of Homoeopathic treatment when properly applied. On the 16th inst., at 10 p.m., I was called to see a very finely bred bull terrier bitch, thirteen months old, weight about twelve pounds. She was in great pain, apparently from some intestinal disturbance. Upon inquiry I learned that the animal had been...
