Diabetes Mellitus.

I would like to give the readers of the THERAPEUTIST what I consider a good and reliable method for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. The method consists of the drinking of large quantities of a tea made from the leaves of the uva ursi, in conjunction with a strict beef diet after the manner of Salisbury. The last patient I have treated with this method was an old man like myself. He was completely cured within a few weeks.

The specific gravity of the urine was reduced at that time from 1048 to 1018. This patient took a pint of the infusion one hour before each meal, as hot as he could drink it. Following this after one hour he ate an entire meal of beefsteak or other preparations of fresh beef. This he did three times a day. This was a year ago, and there has been no return of the sugar or indeed of any symptom of the disease since.

I hope others of the readers will find this as reliable as I have found it.

I have treated marasmus in children after the method of Schussler with tablets of a tituration of calcaria phosphate, 3x, with good results.
