  • Very nice, this show balance mind prescription.
    “As will be seen from the above no one remedy can be looked upon as specific for any one disease. The search for specifics is for many reasons fundamentally fallacious; the principal one being that they are supposed to cure diseases, while in reality it is necessary to cure patients and not disease. It is no argument to say that certain medicines have cured such affections. The very fact that percentage is admitted into the discussion, vitiates all figures and puts the matter without the pale of a true scientific demonstration. This fact is very slowly but nevertheless surely finding its way among those that think and are not ruled by preconceived ideas.”
