Dear All,

This month I have augmented my cautious long-term process-based approach withthe more self-assured and dynamic style of a very successful agrohomeopath from Lahore, Dr.Iftikhar Waris. You can read about Dr.Waris’ bona fides through his own web site : .

Through the Considera forum you can find your way to a little about his extraordinary work – – for which he has gained deserved recognition – .  DrWaris was at the first international Agrohomeopathic conference (you can see his presentation via ) and he intends to be at the second in Brazil in September ( to which you are all invited.

I would like to thank Dr.Waris here for finding time in his very busy schedule to assist us all.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for your reply on the NPK issue.  I am considering what to do and after researching the information in the book Agriculture Tomorrow, I will probably lime this year. We have had considerable rain where I live, in fact, 31 straight days of it.Therefore my ½ acre of gardens have grown lovely weeds and much grass!  I researched the net and Kavi’s book for a remedy to kill grass, but I am not able to see one for this purpose.  There are four remedies to restore the growth of True Grasses, but none to eradicate.  If you could please shed some light on this problem for me I would be very grateful to you.  I await you reply.

 Thank you Mark!



MM: Hi Susan,

I’m not sure why you would want to eradicate grasses and weeds beyond the normal cultivation methods. The decision is whether we are looking for homeopathic versions of the standard chemicals or whether we are looking to work with Nature to bring her to the fullest expression. That being said ……

Dr Waris: You can use Silicea 200 potency with irrigation for above-mentioned problem.


Dear Mark,

I live in southwest Texas and I have several winter squashes that have just started setting blossoms. To date, all of them have been male blossoms. Is this customary, or is there some measure I can take to encourage female blossoms? Thanks for any enlightenment you may give.

Dr. Waris : You can use Pulsatilla 200 potency to encourage female blossoms after every seven days and repeat this four times for desirable results.




I need help with crab grass in my back yard. We have a lot of clay and have a hard time killing crab grass. I’m in Maryland, USA. Also, we have problems with squash bugs that kill my squashes and fleas on eggplants.

Thank you

Dr. Waris :  You can use and alternate Silicea 200 potency & Cheloneglabra 200 after every seven days.


Hi Mark,

I just wanted you to know that I am in Maharashtra Pune and have a mint potted plant on my balcony. The present climate is a fine rain. What homeopathy booster do I use for this plant – the potency, dose and how many times a month?

Thank you



Dr. Waris: You can use following remedies as booster and shields against diseases.

1-Bacillinum / 200

2-Medorrhinum/ 200

3- CalcareaCarb /200

4- Syphilinum/200

5- Sulphur/ 200

Method of use: The above mentioned five remedies are the solution to your problem. Start from Bacillinum 200 and  after every five days, spray the next remedy.


Hi Plant doctor,
I have poison ivy  growing all over the lawn.  How can I get rid of it?

Thank you,
Violet Jessel


Dr Waris: You can use Silicea 12 X potency .


Mark Moodie:  I would have little to say without Dr.Waris this month. I repeat my gratitude to him and please do let us know how you get on. This discipline will grow as has the larger homeopathic discipline for humans and animals by a great collaborative communication distilled into the materia medica and repertories. For this I shamelessly mention the Considera site  where you can add your own experiences directly, or just tell your story and I will add it to the MM and repertory.

Thanks all

Mark Moodie
