Some Notes on Thuja.

Botanical name:

Mrs. C. applied to me for treatment for a papillomatous growth in the hand as large as a small marble. I applied thuja three times each day for ten days. At the expiration of that time the growth had diminished and the tumor had shrunken and was bloodless. I lifted it out and the surface healed without a scar.

Mrs. B. having a large tumor on the back of her hand that gave her a great deal of trouble, applied to a local physician who removed it by a surgical operation. The wound refused to heal and in the course of a short time another growth resembling the first developed and soon became as large as the first. The patient applying to me for treatment I saturated pledgets of cotton with specific thuja in full strength and applied them to the growth, changing them three or four times a day. This caused a gradual reduction in the size of the tumor and a healing of the contiguous parts. The growth has now almost disappeared and promises to be entirely removed by this treatment. A diagnosis of cancer was made by other consulting physicians. This disproves the diagnosis.
