ECHINACEA

     I use Echinacea in all septic conditions with only good results. I consider it an indispensable remedy in the treatment of stomach and intestinal troubles during the summer months in both children and adults. In treating summer complaint among children I combine Aconite and Ipecac. With it (the Aconite in minimum doses), and always feel positive of getting results. The echinacea seems to eliminate the poison from the system, and...

TUBERCULOSIS

By G.W.Bowen, M.D.     That consumption is rapidly increasing is not to be questioned; not that alone, but what is almost its equal, cancers, are also becoming far more frequent. Our own State had 300 deaths from consumption last August, and that is a month in which consumptives are not wont to bid adien to earth.      Two years ago the State Board of Health for New Jersey reported over one thousand cases of cancer...

CHELIDONIUM

Dr.Kernler Translated by P.W.Shedd, M.D.      Chelidonium majus (Greek, chelidon, the swallow) is so named because the plant develops its folliage with the coming of the swallows and withers when they fly southward. It grows chiefly on calcareous soils, walls, rubbish heaps, etc., and hence more commonly near dwellings. The most important constituent of the plant appear to be the non-toxic alkaloid, chelidonin, with acids forming...

ALCOHOL IN THE TROPICS

Major Charles E. Wood ruff, Surgeon in U.S. Army, contributes a remarkable paper to the Medical Record, Dec. 17, 1904. In brief he says that the medical authorities, who have taught for years that meat eating and the drinking of alcoholic beverages are a curse to the white race in the tropics, are, to put it mildly, in error; that the “old soaks” stood the climate far better than the total abstainers. A careful study of the statistics...

Come nearer being...

Nearly all of the children in the city, and many of the adults, were sick with this disease. In conversation with the doctors I learned that only a small number were using the same...
