Therapeutic facts.

Botanical name: 

Iris in Psoriasis.

I have been treating a case of inveterate psoriasis of seventeen years standing, that has finally yielded to iris externally and internally. This was one of the worst cases I have ever seen. Nothing I had previously done relieved till I tried iris internally and externally over the entire person and heated it in with a therapeutic lamp. Now she has a skin almost as clear and soft as a baby's. I may present a write up of this case which I think would prove interesting reading for those who have had or now have similar cases.
