The Professional Estimate of Proprietary Remedies.
:b-st 3vr. j.
OTTITENS, 3MC I.
Dr. Gillaume Touvin, an eminent physician who for many years practiced in Lyons, France, delivered
himself of this very pronounced opinion upon the subject of proprietary medicines:
"I wish that the great mass of the people would try to better understand the position of the medical
profession .in regard to what are popularly known as 'proprietary remedies.' There would appear to be a
sort of half-confused idea that such preparations are condemned en masse by physicians, and that the latter
are a unit in condemning them. Now this is all wrong; it is not conducive to the public welfare, nor1, I
may say, complimentary to the intelligence of us doctors. Because, what the people, of all ranks and
classes, should understand, is that there is genuine help, and also the intrinsically curative power, in some
of those preparations which are called proprietary. Such remedies as physicians discover to be worthy
their commendation they are ready to permit and advise the use of, even though they be classed as pro
prietary. The people should sometimes read the journals of medicine, and therein learn to their advantage
what we commend what we condemn."
The American Journal of Health is all the time seeking to perform its part of the duty that is owed
by all hygienic publications to give to the American public precisely that information which Dr. Touvin
considered so essential to the welfare of the public of France. We want to let the people know which are
the real remedies, and which are the impostures. Then they will be in a position to discriminate, and to
derive from the intelligent use of those remedies which the profession endorses, such help as they may con
tain. Among tried and proved proprietary medicines we confidently class Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin,
manufactured by the Pepsin Syrup Company of Monticello, Illinois, as a cure for constipation, indigestion,
sick headache and stomach troubles. This is a remedy which performs what it promises to perform. We
have obtained convincing proof of the merits of this preparation as a cure for the disease's named. We
have ascertained that in a very remarkable number of cases it has removed both the cause and the effect
of the complaint. Moreover, it has accomplished this so thoroughly that the cure was indeed
complete, and the former sufferer permanently relieved of Iris trouble. We have paid no attention to the advertised claims of Dr.
Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, but made our own inquiries privately and independently. And what we discovered has convinced us of
the genuineness of this remedy. Medical opinion tipon the matter was also secured by us, and such opinion fully supported the
judgment we had formed from our other inquiries, that Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin has been and may be used with the greatest
advantage by all the sufferers from the diseases it reaches and cures.
The quack forever goes about with his worthless nostrums, seeking whom he may devour. We may not be able to get rid of
him and his useless oftentimes harmful compounds totally, but we can do much to reduce his numbers and lessen his power for
harm. He has no such powerful foe as the hygienic press, when it proclaim! the truth that no one should use proprietary remedies
save under the advice of their personal physician or else when the remedy has been endorsed in responsible health publications.
Recommendation is given only in cases similar to that of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, which we, with a full understanding of the
facts, strongly and unreservedly endorse to all who scan these columns. From The American Journal of Health of Sept. 29, 1900.
