Dr Kellogg says...
"The multiple reflex activities set up in the body...(by alteratives) are quite unequaled by any other known therapeutic agent... roughly defined as an agitation, a change, a disturbance ... (an alterative) lifts the patient out of an abnormal state by untying a bundle of pathological habits, thus giving nature, relieved of embarrassing obstacles, an opportunity to organize her resources and to set in operation favorable vital processes or recuperative actions." pp 257,8
