Homeopathy, Mesmerism, Hydropathy, Health, Medical Treatment
Notes the evidence supporting the possibility of curing diseases by faith or imagination. Advises followers of allopathy, hydropathy, and mesmerism to turn to the Royal College of Physicians, 'wet towels', and 'the mesmeric pass' respectively (373). Recommends the book under review, and notes that with it and 'faith' in the homeopathic system, a reader can become their 'own homeopathic domestic physician' (374).
