Creating Waves of Awareness
~ Dr Henry W Eisfelder
An arrhythmia is a disorder of the heart rate (pulse) or heart rhythm, such as beating too fast (tachycardia), too slow (bradycardia), or irregularly.
Background on Dr Henry W Eisfelder:
President of American Institute of Homeopathy. 1601 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia 3, PA he lived at 45 The Oaks, Roslyn Estates, N.Y.
AIH was organized in 1844 with state societies in 31 states and the District of Columbia to further medical research and advance homeopathy. Membership open to graduates of accredited medical colleges who were registered in the state in which they practice with annual dues $20. AIH published their monthly Journal from 1908-1954 for just $6. Editor: Allan D Sutherland
Excerpt from Copeland's Cure: "Homeopathy and the war between conventional and alternative medicine"
The homeopaths who were still around also fought for their profession. An article in the AIH's journal of November 1955, titled "Modern Medicine Rediscovers Homeopathy," had urged members "to investigate modern medicine," even "various antibiotics," which most homeopaths avoided.
"Indiscriminate use" was a concern, and the author, Dr. Henry W. Eisfelder, told his readers that he had often used highly diluted antibiotics to "combat" the overdosage generated by standard doctors.
(In 1951, an amendment to the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act had said that prescription drugs were unsafe for self-medication and were to be used only under a doctor's supervision.) Homeopaths maintained that ignoring "like cures like" and treating acute illnesses with antibiotics encouraged illnesses.
