About the Book
We say of certain children that they are delicate, backward, peculiar, odd, stunted, puny, and the like, without being able exactly to state what disease they are suffering from. The development of a given child receives a shock from a fall or fright; or its further growth is arrested by some acute disease, such as measles or influenza; or child is glum, taciturn, excitable, or what not, and yet people hardly know what is wrong or how to set about putting the wrong right. Again, some children do not see, hear, or speak properly; or they are unclean in their habits, wet their clothes or their beds, and cannot be taught nice, sweet ways like their fellows.
This little work is intended to show that such abnormatities depend upon physical conditions that can be put right by properly chosen remedies, and in no other way so well.
About the Author
James Compton Burnett was born on July 10, 1840 and died on April 2, 1901. Dr. Burnett attended medical school in Vienna, Austria in 1865. Alfred Hawkes converted him to homeopathy in 1872 (in Glasgow). In 1876 he took his MD degree. Burnett was one of the first to speak about vaccination triggering illness. Along with other nosodes, he introduced the remedy Bacillinum. A prodigious writer he published over twenty books in his lifetime.
J H Clarke says of Burnett, "...during the last twenty years Burnett has been the most powerful, the most fruitful, and the most original force in homeopathy."
