Excerpt from The Medical Age, 1887, Vol. 6: A Semi-Monthly Journal of Medicine and Surgery
Scrofula being a disease whose poison is chieﬂy deposited in the lymphatic glands throughout the body, be it the glands of the neck, along the bones, or elsewhere, I feel that the only way in which a strong effect might be obtained will be by the use of the oils or gluco sides of alterative medicines, as these cannot reach the circulation proper, until they have passed the very reservoir of scrofulous poison.
