A diet high in protein causes predominance in the Intestine of proteolytic putrefactive bacteria which produce highly toxic compounds, some of which are absorbed. These compounds are Incompletely detoxified by the liver, and therefore enter the systemic circulation. The toxins cause or aggravate many disease states. Alleviation of pathology can be accomplished by use of such nontraumatic measures as exercise, fasting, and proper diet. Intoxication arising from the intestine is a common… Expand

AUTOINTOXICATION IN CHRONIC CONSTIPATION
TLDR
Clinicians have long maintained that constipation per se could not be considered a disease entity, and have pointed out that the toxemia associated with chronic constipation may have a bacterial origin. Expand
SYMPTOMATOLOGY OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM: IN CHRONIC INTESTINAL TOXEMIA
TLDR
It is difficult to find any case in which, on close investigation, symptoms referring directly to the intestinal tract are absent and, therefore, the error in diagnosis as to the fundamental condition can frequently be explained. Expand
Exchange transfusion in the treatment of fulminating hepatitis.
TLDR
If the patient could be supported during the acute destructive phase until hepatic function returned, the chances for survival might be increased, and massive doses of steroids are almost always employed in patients with fulminating hepatitis. Expand
INTESTINAL AUTOINTOXICATION AS A FACTOR IN THE CAUSATION OF PATHOLOGIC CONDITIONS OF THE EAR, NOSE AND THROAT
TLDR
The question of intestinal autointoxication, toxemia and lithemia, has gained wide attention from the medical profession both in Europe and America, and the results and treatment of putrefaction and toxemia originating in the intestinal canal have become matters of great importance not only to the general practician, but to the otorhinologist.

AUTOGENOUS COLON VACCINES IN THE STUDY, DIAGNOSIS AND THERAPY OF CHRONIC INTESTINAL TOXEMIA
Chronic intestinal toxemia, commonly and erroneously termed chronic intestinal stasis, has always been a widespread and frequent complaint. It has had a variety of names, but one of the earliest isExpand
INTOXICATION PROCEEDING FROM THE INTESTINE, ESPECIALLY POLYNEURITIS
TLDR
The fear of making the same mistake as Bouchard has been a hindrance to the further development of the theory of auto-intoxication, and chemical and biologic methods were not yet sufficiently developed to guard him against incorrect experiments and conclusions. Expand
THE LETHAL AGENT IN ACUTE INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION
TLDR
The continuous appearance in clinical journals of papers which purport to discuss the cause of death in acute intestinal obstruction, but which entirely ignore or misconstrue the important experimental work carried on in the last few years, suggests the desirability of a brief review of this field. Expand
SYMPTOMS OF GASTROINTESTINAL ORIGIN IN THE EAR, NOSE AND THROAT
TLDR
Every practitioner of otorhinolaryngology is from time to time confronted by cases in which the causation is so obscure that diagnosis presents seemingly insurmountable difficulty, and the possibility of allergic complications should always be considered. Expand
THE CAUSE OF EXOPHTHALMIC GOITER: A BIOCHEMICAL HYPOTHESIS
It is quite generally agreed, although with some dissatisfaction, that the thyroid gland is responsible, when abnormally active, for the symptoms that characterize exophthalmic goiter. A vastExpand
The syndrome of impending hepatic coma in patients with cirrhosis of the liver given certain nitrogenous substances.
TLDR
The diagnosis of impending hepatic coma has been clarified by the clinical observations of Adams and Foley, who described mental disturbances and a characteristic tremor before the onset of the comatose state. Expand
