Veterinary Tip

Having read the Tips and Secrets from January 2012, the article of Farrington has struck me. I would add a comment. For Parotitis in animals I have had wonderful experiences with Trifolium pratense (acute) and Trifolium repens in slow developing, rather chronic cases. I have even got results when there were saliva calculi. (They are included in the Materia Medica Veterinaria).

Thanks to Jacques Millemann DVM (Hpathy has published numerous veterinary cases and articles from Dr. Millemann.)

Four Tips from Dr. Banerjea

Polyps : Formica Rufa – Nasal polypi – best remedy: sure cure. (30C)

Nails : Butyricum Acidicum – Crumbling of finger nails. 6C

Furuncle : Abrotanum after Hepar in furuncle.

Condylomata : Sabina follows well after Thuja in condylomata and Sycotic affections.

Thanks to Dr. Subrata K. Banerjea ‘Standstill Cases – Giving an Intercurrent with Emphasis on the Scope of Using a Clinical Tip’

Acute Prostate

In acute inflammation with tenesmus, Pulsatilla, Belladonna and Ferrum phosphoricum are the most valuable remedies, as also Selenium in the chronic form. In beginning prostatic hypertrophy with some inflammation and urinary disturbance Sabal serrulata 3x produces a splendid effect, hence it has been called the ” homoeopathic catheter ” because it acts quickly and markedly on congestion. Ferrum picricum follows it importantly. Do not forget Calcarea fluorica 6x and Equisetum hyemale tincture, often indicated in hypertrophy of medium severity. If there is no undoubted improvement, or if there is advanced sclerosis, we must think of the deep acting remedies such as Baryta carbonica or Conium. Often there may be an adenoma or tumour of grave origin.

Chionanthus Virginica

I have been using this drug for over two years as a specific for so-called sick headache. I prescribe it as follows : In cases of habitual sick headache, 5 drops of the 2x dilution three times a day for a week, then twice a day for a week, then once a day for a week, after which the patient only takes it when symptoms of the attack show themselves. I regard it almost a specific.

Tips from the Clinique

Picric acid is a remedy we should not forget in all cases of neurasthenic exhaustion. Anaemia, due to nervous debility, is its clinical sign.

Argentum nitricum should not be overlooked in cases of chronic gastritis where neurasthenic symptoms are prominent.

The arsenite of Antimony is indicated in pneumonia with loud rattling rales and a feeble heart action. It is therefore very useful with aged patients.

The daily use of the high normal salt enema, in typhoid fever, is an adjuvant worthy of consideration. It will often reduce a high temperature with greater safety than a remedy.

Biochemic Treatment of Teething Disorders

Calcarea Phos. — Is the chief remedy in teething disorders, to supply material for the bony structure of the tooth. Too late or retarded teething. All ailments during teething if traceable to deficiency of lime. Open fontanelles; slow in learning to walk; convulsions and spasms during teething. {Also Magnesia phos. )

Magnesia Phos — Chief remedy for the convulsions and spasms, during the attack. Alternate with Calcarea phos. to remove the cause.

Ferrum Phos — For fever; gums hot and inflamed, and other febrile disturbances.

Silicea — When there is much sweat about the head, also in scrofulous subjects. Alternate with Calcarea phos.

Impaired Hearing – Wax

Conium – Accumulation of earwax, looking like decayed paper mixed with pus or mucus, or blood-red; hardness of hearing ceasing when the wax is removed and returning with the wax.

Lachesis – Want of wax ; ears very dry.

Muriatic acid – Accumulation of wax, which is dry and hard, and of a brown-red color.

Petroleum – A large quantity of thick or thin wax. Sensation of rushing water in the ear.

C.G. Raue MD. – Special Pathology and Diagnostics with Therapeutic Hints

Bromine in Asthma

Gasping with spasmodic closure of glottis. Can’t breathe deeply enough, must sit up in bed. Air Passages”full of smoke”. Coldness in larynx. Asthma of fair and fat children,like Puls, but where Puls fails. Asthma of sailors as soon as they go ashore.

Pointers to the common Remedies – Dr. M.L. Tyler


Magnesium Phosphate, called the anti-spasmodic remedy, has proved effective in otalgia neuralgica and in the neuralgic pains of the head and face, associated with the acute inflammation of the tympanum, also in spasm of the tensor tympani muscle and muscles of the pharynx.

J.D. Buck, M.D. – From-Transactions of the Thirty-Eighth session of the American Institute of Homœopathy , April 10th, 1844

A Swelled Head

The heads of hens will often swell greatly and be very hot. Exposure to draughts of air, however, is a fruitful cause of both swelled heads and swollen eyes. Spongia has given relief in many cases but Belladonna is the indicated remedy for this trouble. Bryonia also will relieve.

Thuja as Specific

Variola : Von Boenninghausen recommends Thuja occidentalis as the specific against the disease. He gives it in the 200th, and eight days after the administration of a single dose not a trace of the disease remains.

The Lesser Writings of C. M. F. Von Boenninghausen -1908 –Compiled by Thomas Lindsley Bradford.

Smelling of Medicines

I may now openly confess that in very painful diseases, e, g,, in toothache, tic douloureux, convulsions and the like, where we desire to given relief as quickly as possible, I have for a long time used almost exclusively this method, which often instantaneously brings the desired relief, especially when only the highest potencies are used for this purpose.

    Tips and Secrets is a very useful column. Here is one that you can often rely on. After a long air travel feet get swollen, legs become stiff, knees painful, back rigid, difficult to walk: take Lyco 200 followed by Puls 30 t.i.d. You will be hopping about like a lamb.

    (Editor’s note: Please consult a homeopathy professional before using 200c potencies. Existing medical conditions must be considered. )
