Hold that Surgery!
I have never done better work with any remedy in valvular heart disease than with Spongia. Valvular murmurs of years’ standing have disappeared under the action of Spongia. “Awakes out of sleep with a sense of suffocation, violent, loud cough, great alarm, anxiety and difficult respiraton” is a keynote. Cannot lie with head low, sleeps into the paroxysm.

Obstructed Lachrymal Tear Duct
The lachrymal duct drains tears from the eye. When it becomes obstructed, redness, inflammation, discharge, sensitivity to touch and infection may result. Consider Natrum muriaticum or Mercurius dulcis.

Two Small Asthma Remedies
Pothos foetidus – ” Asthma attack triggered by dust and relieved by stool; a red, butterfly-type rash across the bridge of the nose, severe tension and bloating in the abdomen, often described as ‘hysterical tympanitis.’
“I have had several cases of asthma, related to horses that have been cured by Castor equi. This remedy comes from the rudimentary thumb-nail of the horse”.

Taking the Right Symptoms
Hahnemann wrote of a morbific influence resulting in a mistuned vital force, and this “mistunement” is then expressed through various limiting symptoms. The morbific influence may be described through a “story” of past stresses, whereas the resulting symptoms express how a person’s vital force has become imbalanced. The limiting symptoms of the imbalanced vital force form a solid foundation for choosing the homeopathic prescription.
When choosing a remedy for a client, it’s easy to be confused into matching the remedy with the “morbific story” (abuse, trauma, abandonment, etc.) rather than the limiting symptoms which developed as a result. In order to avoid losing sight of what needs to be cured: 1) be careful to distinguish between the morbific story and the person’s symptoms, and 2) also distinguish between limiting symptoms (fears, anger, grief, attendant physical complaints) vs. non-limiting symptoms (sympathetic, affectionate, caring, energetic, etc.). The focus must remain on the constellation of limiting and maladaptive symptoms which are NOT serving the “higher purposes of one’s existence”.

Some Basic Axioms
Remedies operate as by contagion. He caught the disease, and catches the cure.
– Leave names of diseases out when prescribing. They are only for the foolish and for the boards of health. The disease is not to be named but to be perceived; not to be classified but to be viewed, that the very nature of it may be discovered.
– Susceptibility is only a name for a state that underlies all possible sickness and all possible cure.
– When a dose is too large to cure, man receives it as sickness.
– The tendency of the human mind to run after things visible, that can be felt with the fingers, leads one to adopt foolish theories like the Bacteria doctrine and the Molecular theory.
