Dr Mary I. Senseman MD, Elgin, Illnois
In a state institution for the insane, Dr Senseman reports 49 in bed with influenza. Sixteen in one ward. “I found temperatures ranging from 99 to 104. All silent, motionless, dusky-faced. They did not moan or ask for anything” she commented. Bryonia was given in 10M but the cases increased rapidly. One woman had a gluey substance from mouth and nose and Dr Senseman gave Senega. “I promptly then gave this Senega 1M or 10M to 23 patients who were not progressing and I thought probable all had tenacious mucus in the bronchi…that was promptly followed by detachment and expectoration of mucus and return of temperature to normal.” All the patients recovered with this treatment.
