The “Biochemic” theories of Schuessler open up a promising field worthy of more conservative investigation. At present, the studies he has made concerning the lack of various tissue salts in certain diseased conditions have been given a vitiated application by very “high potency” enthusiasts. Naturally, it requires a fairly tangible amount of any substance to supply a chemical deficiency, and even if the “law of similars” be admitted to apply in other directions, it is evident to any chemist that the tissue salts do not operate within such limitations.
