 +{{anchor:​s3}}Perhaps the following case, showing the curative effect of Hamamelis virginica, may be interesting to your readers.
 +{{anchor:​s4}}Mary F., aged fourteen years, has always enjoyed tolerable health until within the last eighteen months, when she menstruated. {{anchor:​s5}}The first time, there was considerable pain in the head and back for several days preceding it, accompanied by nausea, vertigo, &c. {{anchor:​s6}}The flow was natural and recurred two succeeding months quite regularly, and without any of the unpleasant sensations which preceded the first. {{anchor:​s7}}When the fourth period came round, there was no indication of menstruation,​ but in place of it quite free epistaxis; this continued for several months increasing in severity each month. {{anchor:​s8}}She was then placed under the care of an eclectic physician, who had treated her until I was called to visit her, as above stated, at the end of eighteen months. {{anchor:​s9}}She was emaciated very much; no color in the cheeks or lips; pulse 140, and feeble; action of the heart very labored, but not giving any signs of organic lesion. {{anchor:​s10}}Extremities considerably bloated; stomach very irritable; bowels constipated;​ urine scanty and clear; some cough and great dyspnea.
 +{{anchor:​s11}}It was the day that the bleeding was to return, and I watched the case; there was over a quart of blood lost, it was thin, forming but very slight coagula. {{anchor:​s12}}I gave her Hamamelis sixth and thirtieth dilutions in alternation,​ two doses of each in the twenty-four hours, which was all the medicine she got during the month following, except a few doses of Arsenicum for the dyspnea when it was troublesome. {{anchor:​s13}}When the next month came round, she menstruated regularly and had no more bleeding; and from this time, she went on rapidly to a perfect recovery, using no other remedy but the Hamamelis.
