TIPS FROM THE MASTERS…

Extended clinical observation has proved its value when Dysentery assumes a Typhoid character.

Dr. Bell.

If there is any ground to fear an attack of Typhus, HYOSCAMUS AND BAPTISIA are probably the best preventives, with plenty of fresh air and wholesome food.

Dr. Ruddock, M.D.

One has seen startling examples of prompt curative action of BAPTISIA in Influenza – in slight cases and in serious ones.

Dr. M. L. Tyler, M.D.
BAPTISIA is the king of all remedies for Typhoid. No remedy can supplant it in the first stage.
Dr. Burt.

Strange as it may sound, coming from an Allopathic physician’s mouth. I have found the concomitant use of Baptisia in Typhoid fever useful, in cutting short the morbidity of the disease.  Another advantage is that it seems to reduce bacterial resistance of Salmonella typhi to the Fluroquinolones like Ofloxacin and the patient responds to the therapy and the intensity of the symptoms comes down.  Unfortunately, I have never been able to back this clinical observation with concrete proof.  But, more objective studies must be done to see, if this remedy does help in reducing bacterial resistance to antibiotics.
