Could anything worse have happened than that these doses might have proved inefficient ? They surely could do no harm! But in their injudicious, self-willed application of large doses for homoeopathic...
Page 39 - Mankind, therefore, is worse off from the change in the external form of the Psora, — from leprosy down to the eruption of itch — not only because this is less visible and more secret and therefore more frequently...
