ECHINACEA

      Here we have, no doubt, one of the greatest remedies known to Materia Medica, but I wish to impress upon the mind of the pharmacist, as well as the practitioner, that much carelessness is manifest in the gathering and preparation of the drug; insist and know that it is made from the green root, that it is an alcoholic tincture, and that it is Echinacea angustifolia (DeCandolle)     ...

RHUS TOXICODENDRON

C.M. Boger. The skin symptoms, so easily excited in susceptible persons by the emanations of the poison ivy, are but one phase of an action remarkable for its ability to induce a wonderful sensitiveness to those external influences which diminish mobility by quickly abstracting heat. Weather capable of bringing about this result is so common in America that it often corresponds to the genus epidemics. Sudden changes of temperature,...

PHYSIOLOGICAL ANTIDOTES AND THE HOMOEOPATHIC LAW

D.E.S. Coleman, Ph.B., M.D., New York. One of the most reasonable explanations as to how cures are accomplished according to the homoeopathic law is the well known theory based upon the secondary action, or reaction, of remedies. We all know that when a poison is administered, certain symptoms characteristic to it are produced. These symptoms are the so-called primary action of the poison. The organism exerts a force, or reacts, in an...

SOME OF THE LIKES AND UNLIKES OF ARNICA, RHUS TOX. AND BRYONIA

By W. J. Hawkes, M.D., Los Angeles, Cal. These three medicines have many points of resemblance, and as many of dissimilarity. There are probably no other two remedies in the Materia Medica which present so many points of similarity from the standpoint of pathology, and at the same time so many and marked points of dissimilarity in their therapeutic indications, as Bryonia and Rhus tox. There are probably no other two remedies so often...

HOMOEOPATHY AND THE TREATMENT OF CARCINOMAS

By Dr. Veith, in Breslau.      We excerpt the following from a very thorough and exhaustive address delivered before the Scientific Session of the Central Society of Homoeopathic Physicians, held in Berlin in August, 1905. After showing statistically the poor success of the old school with its medicines, and the limited numbers finally cured by surgery, he still advises the use of surgery where this offers a moderate hope of success....

TONICS AND STIMULANTS

Edward Cranch, Ph.B., M.D., Erie, Pa.        The sanitarians of the world have long busied themselves on the consideration of habitual aids to natural energy, for which a strong craving has existed in every age and climate know to man.       The average list includes condiments, sweetmeats and carbon ate waters with fancy syrups and cordials; coffee, tea and tobacco, with some choice of varieties and...

DISEASES OF THE CIRCULATION – THEIR CAUSE AND TREATMENT

By Mark Zopfie, M.D.       That the circulation is responsible, or is the direct cause of a great many disturbances in the human body, is not generally observed or considered. This physiological function acts as an important factor, either for health or disease.      Diseases in which the circulation is involved are usually considered as heart lesions, as weak heart, etc. Speaking from past experiences I find...

CIMICIFUGA

By C. M. Boger, M.D. Man everywhere adapts himself more or less to his surroundings and is often aided in this by indigenous resources whose presence seems little short of providential. This seems particularly true of the splendid array of rheumatic remedies which North America with its sudden climatic changes has contributed to our armanentarium. To illustrate this we need only point out Rhus tox., Phytolacca, Gaultheria, with the...

THE ACTION OF SOLUTIONS OF HIGH ATTENUATION ON LIVING ORGANISMS

By albert Schneider, M.D., Ph.D.      It is known that metals placed in water in which seedlings are stimulate growth, so long as the solutions of the metals are weak. Further, it has been determined that very minute quantities of the salts of einc and iron, as well as of silicates, have a stimulating effect upon the growth of some fungi. These and other similar observations led Hueppe to formulate his biological law or dictum which...

SOME ADVANCE STUDIES FOR MENINGITIS CEREBRO-SPINALIS

By Dr. E. Schlegel, Tucbingen       About ten years ago, in springtime, I had to treat two children who had been poisoned by eating the young shoots of Tragopogon (Goat’s beard), which are dug up here in April by children on account of their sweet juice. One of them was a five-year-old boy in the neighboring V., from whose mother I then heard that another child was taken sick from the same cause and with the...
