“Lost one patient to the influenza – a thin woman who was probably suffering from tuberculosis” he wrote. In three pregnant patients, one aborted a dead fetus, two others of 5 months and 8 months gestation recovered and one baby was saved. Under the regular physicians these cases were 100% fatal.
In fall and early winter Gelsemium was nearly specific. If taken in the ‘tired, draggy, chilly’ stage with temperature subnormal, Gelsemium tincture aborted the disease in 9/10 cases. For sleeplessness following disease he used Cypripedium 3x. He gave remedies in potencies between 30x and 10M. Cases overloaded with Aspirin needed Sulphur in high potency.
“Dr Kelley, who is 75 yrs old and has practiced here for 35 years, never lost a case of influenza going day and night. He is homeopathic” wrote Dr Gier.
