Syphilis is very deep and insidious in its action because it is not only the physical tissues like blood, bone and flesh that it attacks and destroys, but also it attacks and implants its mischievous characteristics in the finest part of the victim-namely in his mind. and here Imbecility will show. This imbecility or idiocy is a slow, gradual process. Let us remember that PSORA makes the mind over-active,
SYCOSIS mal-active and SYPHILIS under-active. Psora is quick, sycosis is bad, and syphilis is slow.
Psora is intelligent, sycosis is mischievous and syphilis is idiotic.
It destroys the very balance of the mind. < at night, cold air, lying down, mental exertion many complaints come on winter. >in warm air, in the morning, during summer.
