Dr. J. H. King reports a case of sleeplessness in a woman. Could not go to sleep at night until 1 or 2 o’clock, and sleep was not refreshing; in the morning, upon arising, felt so “tired;” sleep disturbed by dreams; appetite poor; tongue coated brownish. Kali phos., 3x, a powder night and morning. Did not see the case again for two weeks, at which time she said:
“Oh, Doctor, I sleep so well now! go to sleep as soon as I retire, and wake in the morning feeling refreshed. My appetite is enormous, and all that nervousness is gone.”
