Eminent U.S. homoeopath. Born in Austria. Studied for one year at the Vienna Medical School, before settling in Ohio. Graduated from the Philadelphia Medical College in 1876. wrote in the Pocket Manuel of Homoeopathic Materia Medica that the Baptisia has a prophylatic power over typhoid, clears carrier of the disease, and could be of service in a iatrogenic typhoid miasma produced by orthodox immunizations.
“Baptisia in low dilutions produces a form of anit-bodies to the bacteria typhosus, viz., agglutinins. Thus it raises the natural bodily resistiance to the invasion of the bacilary intoxication, which produces the typhoid syndrome. Typhoid carriers. After inoculation with anti-typhiod serum.”
Preventive Medicine includes the application of everything that physiology, hygiene, sanitary science, etc., can teach to lessen the development of disease according to the teaching of the Organon.”The physician is at the same time a preserver of health, when he knows the causes that disturb health, that produce and maintain disease, and when he knows how to remove them from healthy persons”.
It includes much of bacteriological knowledge, antiseptic medication, subjects that have made enormous strides in recent years. It includes as well the judicious use of homoeopathic remedies in preventing or modifying the development of epidemic and hereditary diseases.
