From: Interview with Dr. Farokh Master – by Dr. Manish Bhatia (video)
Some important issues Dr. Farokh has pointed out:
1. Scrapping of the MD (Hom) courses. I fully agree with this since it is important to have a good study material in the undergraduate level before proceeding to the MD level. An MD in Repertory or MM or Organon has only a commercial value.
2. Poor teaching standards. He is right in raising this issue that the teaching staff are also not very well versed with Homeopathic subjects.
3. Neo Gurus culture: If the students are not taught well in the colleges they are bound to fall prey to the Neo Gurus who promote themselves more than the subjects. It is fast becoming a business.

From: Paving the Way for Pregnancy Making Tubes Patent with Homeopathy – A Case Report –by Dr. Kanika Sabharwal
The author gives more importance to the mind symptoms which are indeed the key to the whole case record. In the case of tubal block a homeopath is always careful, because if the block is total and congenital then it goes to the domain of surgery. Anti-sycotic medicines have the power to dissolve some extra-growth inside the fallopian tube, or elsewhere. I thank the author for her scientific case presentation.

From: A case of dysmenorrhoea – by Dr. Khyati Vora
I am sad to learn how you have been repeating the same medicine in the same potency so frequently. When there is relief why is the medicine repeated?

From: A case of chronic urticaria in a boy of 14.by Dr. Pooja D. Gori
Urticaria is a manifestation of Psora andSyphilis combined. Lyc works for all the three miasms, so it was fine. High potency is certainly needed for chronic cases if the mentals general and physical generals are present.

From: Tidbits 44: Moving Again–Thanks to Homeopathy! by Elaine Lewis
Thank you Elaine for another insightful Tidbits column. Yes, where would we be without Homeopathy? What homeopathy can do simply and safely is handled allopathically by invasive tests and toxic drugs.

From: A Homeopathic / Holistic Approach to Depression with Reference to Conventional Management by Gill Graham
I’m glad you quoted a criticism from an academic source, of the ‘chemical imbalance’ theory. This idea, so beloved of drug companies, deserves to be discredited or at least countered with other views.
From: Keeping Our Eyes on the Prize – Editorial by Alan V. Schmukler
Thank you, Alan, for this reminder of “the bigger picture,” and for all you do to help keep this light of truth burning brightly. This journal is a treasure.

This excellent article is a wonderful segue into understanding how the psyche can open up to revealing what the subconscious has to say about needed changes and remedies that can assist in helping one’s journey. I have personally benefited as a practitioner from Dr. Luc’s framework when I participated in his Dream Seminar in Boston a few years ago. I am looking forward to his upcoming book as symbols and dreams play such an important part in our gentle probing to unearth the path of healing.
