HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT OF DISEASES

By A. T. LOVERING, M.D.

SPECIAL ATTENTION IS CALLED TO THE FOLLOWING PAGES BEFORE USING HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES

The enlightened and liberal policy of the publishers of this comprehensive work on the practice of medicine, will be thoroughly appreciated by the people for whom it is written when they take note of the fact that no money or pains have been spared to obtain every well tested method of preventing and curing disease to include in this volume.
We therefore introduce here the Homeopathic Treatment of Diseases for the benefit only of those who are confirmed "Homoeopathists".
All medicines and drugs prescribed in "Homeopathic Treatment" must be prepared by a physician or Homeopathic Druggist.

FORMS OF MEDICINE AND ADMINISTRATION.

Homeopathic medicines must be taken only in the form of small pellets or disks in strength of what is called 2 X or 3 x.
Homeopathic remedies are prepared on the decimal scale, as it is called, one part of the crude drug being added to nine parts of alcohol or finely powdered milk sugar, as the case may be, to make the first decimal, or I x.
One part of the first decimal, I X, added to nine parts of milk sugar or alcohol makes the second decimal, or 2 X.
One part of 2 X added to nine parts of milk sugar or alcohol makes the third decimal, or 3 X.
When the strength of a remedy is not specified in the following pages, the third decimal should be used. Medicines should be obtained either in the medicated pellets or disks.
When 2 x is administered to the patient, only two pellets or one disk not oftener than specified, but in most cases once every hour, is sufficient.
When 3 x is administered to the patient, only three pellets or two disks should be given not oftener than specified, but in most cases once every hour is sufficient.
