Malarial fever is often a very difficult diseased state to successfully
prescribe for by the homoeopathic method. So many 
symptoms and dyscrasia enter into this condition as to render 
the selection of the exact similar very perplexing. Yet, when 
the remedy is carefully chosen, brilliant results are sure to 
follow. The following clinical case well illustrates the completeness
of the cure. 
Male, fifty-two years of age; dark complexion. The history 
is negative and especially no malarial infection has ever been 
manifest. He arose in the early morning as usual, except for 
a feeling of languor, but went about his business and, at 10.30 
A. M., complained of intense, hard, throbbing pain in forehead,
temples and vertex. The pupils become widely dilated. 
There was severe muscular aching of the body especially,
of the legs and back. There was thirst for large drafts of 
cold water. The patient was placed in bed and the temperature 
rose to 104 . Towards night the patient was considerably
relieved, and by 9 P. M. the temperature was 99 and the 
body covered with a free perspiration. Ferrum Phos. 30 was 
administered during the acute stage of the fever. 
The sleep was rather restless. The next morning at 10.30 A. M., 
Another attack developed, exactly like the day before, only more 
severe, with the temperature rising to 105.5 °. A blood culture 
was taken and the malarial parasites were present in great 
number. One dose of Natrum Mur. 1m. was administered after the 
acute symptoms began to subside. No more attacks have appeared 
and the patient has remained perfectly well.

In our work it is essential that we have access to modern 
methods of diagnosis, in order that we may produce the evidence
beyond question of the efficiency of the homoeopathically
selected remedy, as this case so positively demonstrates. 
Were it not for these methods employed in this case, many 
would claim that it was a case of mistaken diagnosis and cure, 
but here we have proof of the power of the similar, radioactive 
remedy affecting the micro-organisms of malaria, while 
inhabiting a living human body. Nothing can so hasten the 
acceptance of Homoeopathy as to be able to prove the power 
of our remedies to destroy micro-organisms in the living body.
