Mrs. W., age 25 years, married, and has two children : the last was born fifteen months before I saw her, from which time she has suffered from profuse yellow leucorrhœa with violent pruritus vulvæ ; worse at night. She has at the same time great bearing down of womb, perfectly incapacitating her from standing or walking or doing her household duties, such as ironing and washing.
Most violent chronic headaches, of a throbbing and tensive character, and arising from the least worry or fatigue, with habitual constipation. Has been, under allopathic treatment two years without benefit. The keynotes to the cure were as follows : Heat and pressure on vertex ; throbbing and tension ; headaches more or less constant and worse before the menses ; worried by trifles, and memory impaired. Flushing of face ; fainting spells without cause ; sinking, empty, exhausted, craving for food ; worse at eleven o’clock in the forenoon ; intense icy cold feet ; worse when the head is bad.
Sulphur, one millionth potency (Boericke), in one dose of five pellets, cured permanently every symptom, constipation, leucorrhœa and sensation of prolapsus included and without repetition. (Skinner). The italics are mine. (N.)
