Baptisia in Sore Throat

Botanical name: 

I have learned by my experience to depend upon baptisia in the treatment of all cases of ordinary sore throat. I find but few cases that will not be benefited by it. However, I vary from the ordinary method and do not dally along with the usual formula of ten drops to four ounces of the mixture. I prescribe from one to two drams in a four-ounce prescription of which I give a teaspoonful every two hours, alternating with any other indicated remedy.
