I have recently had a patient who has been suffering for several years with an intractable headache. The patient is a married woman, the mother of two children. She had been treated by several physicians without avail when she came to me some two months ago.
I gave her five grains of lithia dissolved in cold water, three times a day. This seems to have removed the cause of the disease, for the headaches have disappeared completely.
Another married woman in the same neighborhood had been suffering for some time with urticaria. She had been doctored by her regular family physician for a long time without results. This patient was cured with the same remedy I used in the cure of the headache as above stated.

COMMENT:—The doctor neglects to state what salt of lithia he used in the treatment of these cases. This takes away much of the value of the suggestions. The cases both depended probably on a lithemic condition, for their cause. The suggestions we are publishing from time to time as I have constantly stated are only valuable as they are exact and specific.
