Overview
This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1907 edition. Excerpt: ... in 36 of the commonwealths, and at the present rate of increase these bodies will in a few years exist in every State. To these may be added 150 local societies of various kinds. In the United States homoeopathic physicians are in charge of 220 hospitals, general and special, 66 other institutions--asylums, homes, etc., and 65 dispensaries, 20 medical colleges, and 32 medical journals. The exact number of physicians practising homoeopathy in this country cannot be ascertained with accuracy, but it is known to be not less than 12,000, and has been estimated as high as 18,000. The number of people employing these physicians, regularly or irregularly, cannot be less than 15,000,000. Thus has the influence of homoeopathy extended during its American career of 75 years. The influence of homoeopathy upon public and professional sentiment has been beneficent and pronounced. Laymen and physicians have alike learned from the practice, that large quantities of potent and dangerous drugs are not often necessary to determine recovery from' disease, and physicians have reached the wise conclusion that cures sometimes occur under the influence of small doses, as well as quantities with larger.
