At a meeting of medical men at Schaffhausen, Professor Dr. Rapp said: "In my opinion the greatest merits of Dr. Schussler's method lie in the introduction of Kali phos. and Magnes. phos. In ordinary stomatitis, with swelling of the gums, deposit on the teeth and foul breath, Kali phos. has given very satisfactory proofs of its value."
