Lac Caninum

Some of the earlier writers in medicine mention the use of bitch’s milk as a remedy, but we owe its modern use in medicine to Homoeopathy, where it fills a very useful and pretty well defined place. It is not a little remarkable that the weak points in the organism of the dog should correspond to the region most affected in the human economy by proving of this substance.       The tendency of Lac caninum symptoms is erratic. To wander...

SERUM THERAPY

Eric Graf von der Goltz, M.D.       If any one will take the time to scan over the three volumes of J.H. Clark’s Dictionary of Materia Medica he will find all that on record which at the present time fills the allopathic press as the newest gain of scientific researches. But it must be said that the statements of those old records show a greater clearness, a more simple language than the editorials and...

CRATAGUS OXYACANTHA

By Crawford R. Green, M.D., Troy, N. Y.       The introduction of Cratagus oxyacantha, the Hawthorn berry, into medicine as a heart remedy is attributed to a Dr. Green, of Enhis, Ireland. From time to time this remedy has attained to some sporadic vogue, but is has never received that general recognition which it so richly deserves. Indeed, Cratagus has given such uniformly successful results where it has been...

A COMMENT ON OUR MATERIA MEDICA

By Dr. Lewis E. Rauterberg. There is no curable disorder in the human body nor any curable invisible morbid change that does not make itself known as disease by signs and symptoms, and hence by removing the entire complex of perceptible signs and disturbances, the disease itself is canceled. Therefore, to observe the totality of symptoms in each individual case, can be the only guide in the selection of a remedy. This is the teaching...

ASCLEPIAS TUBEROSA

By C.M. Boger, M.D.      Pleurisy root is a general relaxant, increasing the secretions, the secretions, This is particularly true of the skin, mucous membranes and pleura.

HEREDITY AND TUBERCULOSIS

“Professor Karl Person, than whom there is no higher authority on biologic statistics, finds that his researches on the incidence of pulmonary tuberculosis rather favor the presumption of hereditary being a leading if not a dominant factor. It is impossible, he admits, to assume, with the present insufficient data that any disease is inherited in the same sense that physical and mental characteristics are inherited, but if inheritance...

THE BARS ARE STILL UP

The Philadelphia newspapers of April 16th, modestly headlined the fact that the Philadelphia County Medical Society – allopathic, for want of a descriptive name – had admitted to membership four graduates of the Hahnemann Medical College of the same city. The reporter makes the following comment on the act:      “This was the first time in the society’s history that disciples of Samuel Hahnemann have been granted that privilege, and...

REMEDIES IN RACHITIS

Aloes: The first remedy I wish to call your attention to is Aloes. This remedy is seldom thought of by those who have already made a diagnosis of rickets and perhaps it would not be so well indicated at that stage, that is, when such a diagnosis would be reasonably certain. But I believe Aloes is an antipsoric, having many symptoms like Sulphur. When this remedy is indicated, there is usually a rise in temperature with dry lips,...

SOME PECULIAR CASES OF INFLUENZA PNEUMONIA

By Dr. G. Sieffert, Paris      In every new epidemy of influenza the observation made long ago of its mutability of form becomes anew noticeable. This fact is seen even in the merely bacteriological relations of its specific cause. New observations by Wassermann, Doering and Jochmann show that it is often very difficult to find the bacillus of Pfciffer: the active cause quickly vanishing out of the sputurn, etc.      Also the fact...
