I am very much interested in the articles on the "Tissue Remedies" by Dr. Kinnett. I have used these remedies for twenty-five years, and I would like to add my name to all he has said. I use about 400 pounds of the tissue remedies every year. They can be bought for 35 cents a pound in bulk and are as fine as they can be made.
Let me add a line in regard to calcaria fluorica. Several years ago, at a conjoint meeting of two of our Ohio Societies, a physician came to me and asked me for the best treatment for a case of uterine hemorrhage. The woman had taken viburnum, ergot, cinnamon, hamamelis, etc., in all combinations; had been curetted, douched and had used suppositories, but still continued to flow at frequent intervals. Riding in a car or buggy would bring it on.
I told him to give her calcaria fluorica and, possibly, some other indicated tissue remedy. At the next meeting of one of the societies the doctor came to me and said "Cook, the woman with the hemorrhage was the first patient to come to my office on my return, and I cured her with calcaria fluor. 3x. One powder which I gave her at the office controlled the hemorrhage for one month, and she came back for more as next period was approaching."
Calcaria fluor. in combination with kali phos. and sometimes calcaria phos. and in alternation with natrum sulph., kali mur. or other indicated tissue remedy, has cured angina pectoris for me in a short time A case of aneurism of the abdominal aorta, after several months treatment with this remedy, now presents no clinical evidence of the disease. This is the remedy in exostosis. Other remedies are usually re- quired with it.
