S. wife of a prominent clergyman in this city. a month before she expected paroxysm. I saw her in one of these attacks in bed with her entire surface and her eyes closed with oedema of the lids. This being the case. The hives were so confluent that not a spot of healthy integument could be seen. Apis could not be her similimum. but when she had retained presence of mind and covered herself warmly with clothing she soon became quiet and the paroxysm terminated with less suffering.Case 50 Urticaria appearing annually Rhus radicans Mrs. as I requested her to do. 108 . or whatever you may be pleased to call it. about forty years old. and I could now understand clearly why I had failed to interrupt the paroxysm and bring about a feeling of contentment so usual in such cases. "I shall die this time surely. I learned that when the eruption was out distinctly in nearly all of the attacks she had found that heat calmed her terrible distress and ameliorated the itching and burning. when she called on me. But the paroxysm passed off and another year rolled by. consulted me for annually appearing paroxysms of urticaria. There was no perceptible thirst and time was precious. The whole paroxysm lasted twentyfour hours. and I am satisfied that I made waste by my haste in giving her a dose of Apis 200. On the 13th day of May every year for seven years she had been seized with a burning and itching of the skin that would seem nearly to drive her to distraction. While she craved cold and had even thrown the covers off she was made worse by it. She seems to be in terrible distress and exclaimed every moment.." She seemed suffocating and was throwing off the covers. which had no effect. It seemed f rom her movements and speech that her skin felt as if on fire. I then learned more of her symptoms.

Within a few hours after taking the remedy she declared that her "spell" was coming on. and plainly as a result of a homoeopathic remedy. and then I was contented to await results. The highest potency at hand was administered and never repeated. and with all very badly. evidence of curative action of my selected remedy. She remarked to me one day. 109 . the dynamized drug. and she refrained from these luxurious fellows and still did not miss the paroxysm. With the symptoms as given and the new modality. This may not have been urticaria." She had been treated allopathically. One told her one thing and another disputed him. the smallest dose. but this case furnished me no. and that is enough for me. and in this way shall we become the most useful to our patrons. 200. neither do I care. Some of the wise heads of the old school told her it was from eating strawberries. the paroxysm never appeared again. your powders have made a new woman of me. and bided my time ten days before the expected paroxysm. physiologically. In this way only can we progress. I simply know that when comparing the pathogenesis found in the Symptomen Codex I found a picture of the disease to be cured. pathologically. but it was only the shadow. and so will any man who knows how to apply the law-the similimum. I am contented with such results. She missed it two years and she is in better health than ever. eclectically. What was it? I don't know.I have quieted such patients very frequently in an hour.

-There is no remedy so competent for rattling in the chest when that state has followed an acute attack of inflammation. 114 .Case 53 Rattling in chest-kali sulph. Kalium sulfuricum Kali-sulph. When a child has passed through broncho-pneumonia and seems to have recovered and after every change in the weather to cold the child coughs and rattles in the chest. then it is that this remedy cures.

Case 54
Rattling cough-kali sulph.
Kalium Sulfuricum

A boy four years old was brought to my office for treatment.
He looked well, but coughed several times with a rattling cough.
"He never expectorates," says the father, "but he always has that rattling. It
is worse in cold weather. He eats well and seems well, but always has more
or less rattling."
Kali sulph. 200, one dose, dry, cured the case.
In one week the rattling that had been there all winter was gone; the
weather changes do not affect him now.

115

Case 55
Double pneumonia-kali sulph.
Kalium Sulfuricum

A little girl baby fourteen months old had a very violent double pneumonia
last winter.
Having been called to the case rather late, it was with great difficulty that
the baby was saved.
But, finally, it convalesced and looked well.
During the cold spring weather it rattled in the chest and coughed.
Otherwise it was healthy and plump.
Some two months after the acute attack it was rattling when the weather
changed to cold or damp.
Kali sulph. 200, cured immediately.
I prescribe Kali sulph. 200 for rattling in the chest, with or without much
cough, in the absence of distinct indication for other remedies-in sub-acute
or chronic cases.

Case 57
Sore on lower lip
Mercurius proto iodatus

Mrs. H, age 28, married, came to me for treatment.
She had a sore on the red part of the lower lip as large as a hickory nut.
It was dry and covered with a scab; it was hard as horn; it had been several
months forming and was quite painful.
The sub-maxillary gland was enlarged and hard.
The lymphatics were enlarged on the right side of the neck and she had
enlarged tonsils.
The history of tuberculosis was in the family and she had been told that this
was an epithelioma.
Several dry scales had been removed and as soon as one had separated a
new one had formed.
She got Merc. proto-iod 100 (home-made), one dose every four days.
It healed in five weeks-perfectly, I withhold my opinion as to diagnosis.
I have neglected to mention that it had been deeply cauterized before
calling upon me for treatment.

Case 67
Whisky drinking, etc.
Sarsaparilla

Mr. aged 52, been addicted to whiskey drinking
for many years. States that he had a copious flow of blood from the bowels
some four months ago.
He considered himself well up to two years ago.
During these two years he has declined steadily, "growing weaker all the
time," he says.
At present the exertion of walking a few blocks to
my office caused suffocation; in fact it was some minutes before he could
talk, he was so out of breath.
After the loss of blood, above mentioned, his feet
began to swell, and at this time both limbs to middle of thighs were very
oedematous.
Has had two or three nondescript chills. A few
days ago he had a sudden paralytic weakness of left arm and leg, which
passed off in three hours, leaving a numbness in the left hand and rending
pain in left side of head and face.
No appetite, and there are bloody mucous
discharges with the stool, which is otherwise normal. "I feel as if in a
dream all the time"
Loss of memory. His wife came with him for his
safety and to tell his symptoms for him.

139

Thinking hard enabled him to recall many of his
symptoms, and simple incidents.
When I would let him talk he would keep saying,
over and over, "If I should run I would drop dead."
His face was covered with varicose veins and
very red. A general venous stasis prevailed. Feeling on top of the head as if
he had been hit with a hammer. (The wife said he often mentioned the last
symptom.)
Must pass urine several times in the night; urine
thick and cloudy after standing, but is clear when first passed. Has had
much worry from financial losses during the last ten years, which had made
him resort to whisky.
He has always had a very red face. He cannot
pass urine while sitting at stool, but it flows freely when he is standing;
albumin in the urine. He has taken much medicine during the last two
years. Always very strong.
While this case seemed to be very unpromising,
and the wife was promptly informed that the case would most likely prove
fatal.
I was urged so strongly by her, that I took
considerable time and settled upon a remedy.
Sarsaparilla cm., one powder, in water, eight
doses spread over two days, and plenty of Sac. lac.
No aggravation seemed to follow, and at the end
of a month he was so much improved, and still improving that he continued
to take Sac. lac. which restored him to a very comfortable existence and he
is temperate and works for his living and supports his family, which was
previously done by his wife with her needle.

Finally he wrote me a lot of symptoms that I could make nothing of. taking into account his shape he received Phosphorous 45 m. and improved again." he writes. 143 . Headaches come about weekly. The face is painful in cold air. His back is always covered with pustules. Almost constantly feels a constriction of the chest. His seminal losses were only occasional and I soon concluded that the cursed drugs he had taken and the advice he had had were worse than his youthful sins. "The more I eat. always thankful for much improvement.. and he has never needed any medicine since. Says his head hurts so from constantly thinking about his failing health. Trembling from exertion and becomes tired easily. and made good improvement for some time. same potency. except he seemed to have lost much he had gained.

It acted without aggravation. and the family physician should be the only adviser of all the young in his vicinity. which shows that the first dose cured for two months. He knew nothing of the system of Homoeopathy only as he was advised by a cousin that lived in the city. He should be the friend to all the children. and the next dose exerted curative action about two and a half months. and the last dose finished the work. He never failed to notice the positive curative action of a dose of Iodine. produced by reading the cursed charlatan literature sent out to deceive the young. and steadily his symptoms would diminish and his strength correspondingly increase. Amelioration would begin in a few days after a dose. This hard-working young man was bowed down with fear. It will be well to remember that this young man had taken drugs with no benefit. so that they will squander their money on advertising doctors and patent nostrum venders. and so hold their confidence that he first of all will be consulted in those matters. Homoeopathy restores them when they are sick. and removes their fears when they are not sick. and when the similar remedy was administered he responded promptly. to correspond with her physician.he would get another dose. 144 .

One man in particular I know. results from Tabacum used for seasickness in a routine manner.

I do nothing but vomit and vomit food from one end of the trip to the other." His fortune is invested in such a way that he needs to go two or three times in the year across the ocean. Now I provide him with the infallible protections. and he keeps on hand some powders of Tabacum 70 m. You can understand the Tabacum sickness if you will get on the rear end of a boat and watch the waves as they go away from the vessel. I have used it many times for the sickness from riding in the cars. Petroleum and Cocculus sometimes helps seasickness. but Tabacum is a broad remedy that seems to cover most of the symptoms. and when he gets out and feels his dizzy spell coming on he takes his powder and he can take his meals all the way over. The one powder has always done it. sitting at a car window and watching the scenery as the car goes along produces a similar deathly nausea.He said: "I am sick from the time I go on the boat until I get off. 150 . Tabacum often relieves this nausea from riding in a train. and pretty soon the stomach goes up and down and everything goes up and down. The boat goes up and down. I can eat nothing. Well.

Fulgurating pains coursed through his limbs and back and he was in a general way going down in bodily health. His visual apparatus has been defective a long time but there are no new symptoms traceable to the probable nervous state. and he had to wait a long time for his urine to start. He could not distinguish between small objects with his fingers. His staggering was no worse when walking with his eyes closed. came back from one of his western trips. with syphilitic history.

It was soon seen to be not a periodical headache. but one that came after eating beef.

All the facts in the case should be gathered before prescribing. Our remedies will cure when they are similar to all the symptoms in the case. you should hear her complain of these awful headaches at night. in a letter from the doctor to his patient. Hasty conclusions are as dangerous as any form of negligence. which was called. 160 . corresponded to her other symptoms and that remedy cured her. Then came the story: "Oh. It was subsequently discovered that she had these headaches always after ice cream and then it was seen that Puls. Doctor. Local treatment had gone on many months and still the sister failed. through a welldisposed woman.Case 78 Headache periodical-after eating ice cream Pulsatilla Silicea A middle aged woman suffered from Sunday periodical headaches and none of the remedies in the rubric for weekly headaches helped. endometritis. Some years ago it was necessary to listen second hand. to the complaints of her sick sister. The sister was under the care of an eminent Old School specialist for some deep seated uterine trouble. then she goes to sleep. She says there is a feeling as if she had a stone on the top of her head and she cannot rest or give me any rest from that pressure until the gas is lighted.

The patient never needed a light in the room at night again. but it was a headache worse in the dark.The odor of the room is awful from her feet. It was supposed by the eminent specialist to be due to endometritis. her uterus did not make her sick. Here was a supposed periodical headache. It cured." This good woman took one powder of Silica. which she was to give her sister on the sly. but as a fact the woman was sick. when the doctor tells his patient that the uterus makes her sick. What a profound thought. 161 .

Green discharges from his eyes. He had taken all the roots. it was possible only to make a good first guess and hope for the best. One young man who came to me excited my pity. it was rumored among the people that a city doctor was in the land. which looked hideous from ectropion. cracked and bleeding. His face was red and chapped. ectropion. Green thick discharges from the nose.Case 79 A perfect cure of eruption. Acrid tears had burned roads down the cheeks. when gunning in the southwest. diarrhoea and finally of the man Natrum Sulfuricum Some years ago. 162 . and I was waited upon frequently for remedies. lips and eyelids checked with fissures. as they rarely had such a chance among the ranches. no paper upon which to write out his symptoms. He was a constant taker of all drugs for "the blood" that he could procure cash to buy. barks and leaves that grew in that wild country. The extremely thick skin of the inside of the hands was chapped. Describing the young man from memory could be but a mild picture of the real case. Having no time to take his case with care.

During the last five years he had morning diarrhoea.
In spite of these sufferings he had a good appetite, and kept his place in the
saddle as a "cowboy."
It was while in the saddle I gained this information, and then remarked,
"Are you happy, and do you enjoy life?"
"Doctor, you do not know how hard I have worked to keep from blowing
my head off with this thing" (a six-shooter hanging at his belt).
Before he made this remark it had not dawned upon me what his remedy
was. In fact I could see only Sulphur in what had appeared.
Now Natrum-sulph. came in view, and from my case a 500th potency, one
dose, was put upon his tongue.
I never expected to see him again, but he asked me for my address.
I gave it to him, and some time after he wrote for more of that wonderful
medicine.
It was never changed. Some two years later he ceased to ask for it.
His last letter showed a perfect cure of the eruption, ectropion, diarrhoea
and finally of the man.
This case again shows the importance of mental symptoms in the cure of
deep-seated conditions.
Eversion of the lids has been cured by Sulph. but not before by Nat-sulph.,
although Nat-m. has shown curative action in this relation frequently. Natsulph. will do more when handled properly in the hands of a Homoeopath
than Schussler ever dreamed of.

Case 81
Fibroid recurrent" cured by Silicea in high potency.
Silicea

Frank H., a compositor in the Globe-Democrat office, St. Louis, came to
my office to have a tumor removed by the knife.
It had been removed twice and was called a recurrent fibroid. It was the
size of a hen's egg and very hard, located in the left side of the neck, not
connected with the parotid, though growing a little below it.
I advised him to give me time to prepare him for removal. I took his
symptoms and found that he was better by wrapping up over the head.
He was timid in going into a new enterprise, though abundantly able to
perform the task.
He lacked confidence in his own ability, yet when he had begun he would
do well.
He took Silicea 5m., April 1st, 1883.
Six weeks later he called, and the tumor was reduced one half, Sil., 72m.,
dry, one dose.
Six weeks later almost gone.
January 23rd, 1884, Sil. 72m., one dose.
The tumor had disappeared.

To use the knife is but to acknowledge one's ignorance of a method by which he can avoid cutting. and it was the language of this pre-existing state that I read. The tumor was not included in the totality of symptoms. who think the one dose business a mystery. not effect. 167 . as out of this preexisting state.

Her would-be friends did what they could to persuade her husband to have
operative measures used, but without avail. When the dragging sensation as
of prolapsed uterus was most troublesome the would-be friends urged
having the uterus fastened to the abdominal wall, but Homoeopathy held
the case.
Mar. 8 to Oct. 9 the symptoms of the patient in her usual disorders were not
satisfactorily or completely reported so that not much progress in the
chronic condition was evident.
Feb. 15 to Oct. 9 , pain in the appendix recurred twice, temp. 102, each
time promptly dispelled by PHOS. which was given in 50m, cm, dm and
mm potencies, twice in succcession in each potency, each time holding for
four or five weeks.
Dec 1911, to Feb., 1912, Phos., 1m was used three times, each time
followed by improvement as revealed in mental condition and general

menstrual periods became more comfortable and regular, and some
progress could be detected.

These would make a young man naturally think of Calcarea. such information is best acquired by observation in the wilderness of symptomatology. cold damp feet. When she would go for some time without the loss of much blood her totality of symptoms was similar to Thuja. The cold sensation is not found under Thuja. another. but a closer study must result in a conclusion that Calcarea could only result in a failure to cure until Thuja had removed the sycotic nature of the disorder. but the case made a good recovery. It only shows that the individuality of a disease must be known. The pathologist might score this as a victory for himself.Case 105 Totality and individuality. Thuya A lady who suffered from sycotic excrescences became reduced from repeated hemorrhages. 231 . One symptom in particular was a cold feeling in the left side of the head. Sycotic excrescenses. after which the individuality of the chronic miasm will be manifested by its true expression or symptoms. but an exhaustive flow would add several symptoms to the original picture and mask the individuality of the true chronic disorder. because it was similar to the ruling feature of the case. When the evidence of a chronic miasm is suppressed by a remedy corresponding to the acute or last appearing symptoms. Now because Thuja removed the individuality of a case with the cold left side of the head. but he only has learned it from a careful individualization of symptoms. it is no sign it will remove that symptom.

having the audacity to ask what remedy he should have used. and then have the audacity to ask for the right remedy to be pointed out. These things were all known to the great Hahnemann. No Homeopathist can make a truly homoeopathic prescription when the individuality of a disease is unknown. in its totality of symptoms. The individuality can only be known by observing and knowing all the symptoms. The ignorant pretenders use the supporters and smile at the Organon.These little things were well known to the great Hahnemann. After a week the symptoms will most likely express individuality. 232 . no less than the failure. The physician who does not individualize uses Morphine to stop the pain and reports his ignorance to the society. The question asked. and are taught in the Organon and Chronic Diseases. and then an appropriate remedy can be found. The pessary should be removed. and go on with their failures. how can even a more competent physician inform him what an appropriate remedy might be? The questioner could not prescribe for his own case as a general thing if he would individualize correctly. and with such ignorance of his case. When a woman calls for treatment with a pessary in her vagina. Each case must be studied with a view of its own individuality. These are the ones who are wise enough to direct remedies on their knowledge of pathology. only to fail. or only partly known. she will most likely fail to obtain a correct remedy because her symptoms are masked or changed so that the totality does not express the individuality of the disease. they seem to glory in their ignorance of the true healing art. shows that he is not acquainted with the teachings of the Organon. The physician who is not competent to direct the appropriate remedy is not acquainted with the individuality of his case. and the disease permitted to express itself in the language so well known to every true Homeopathist. There is no other way known.
