Mercurius sol.


From the looks of things, just about everyone got it right!  Who wants to go first?  Oh look, it’s Hpathy Team Member, Firuzi Mehta!

OK, for the Almonds Quiz, I’d give her APIS right away.  The cold shower improvement confirms it for me.


Dr. Firuzi Mehta

Yeah, it’s really that simple.  Who else wants to go?  Oh look!  It’s the winner of the Career Day Contest, Vamsi Sudha!

Elaine…Gabi’s attack of almonds is a clear case of Anaphylaxis, and the remedy she must have administered is “APIS”.

Added to it, she also got relief from cold water (cold shower + cold towel), which also reinforces the Apis prescription.

BTW: You also have mentioned about APIS in your Titbits – Part 15 (Emergency kit).

Pls let me know your opinion.



You’re right again, Vamsi, anaphylaxis + better cold applications = Apis!

Oh look, it’s Maria from Greece!

Hi Elaine, for this month’s quiz my vote goes to Apis.

Swelling, hives, cold application ameliorates, it is a major remedy for allergic anaphylactic shocks.

If I am wrong I will try again 🙂

No need, as you are correct–again!!!!  Who’s next in line?  Oh wow, it’s my soul brother from Wales, Peter Dunseith!

Hi Elaine,

Here’s one for you

R.I.P. Bobby Womack

Thank you so much!  Here’s one for you, Peter; he wrote this for Wilson Pickett, I love this song; This is Wilson Pickett, live, with “I’m In Love” written by the late Bobby Womack:

Revisiting: Attacked By Almonds! 1

I am also choosing Apis – rapid onset of itching throat and generalised urticaria with hives and swollen tongue, ameliorated by cold bathing and cold applications.  Apis is also indicated for anxiety accompanied by palpitations.  If the worst of the inflammation and swelling is in the axillae, it is more Vespa than Apis, but on the totality I will go with Apis.

Very good, Peter; everyone seems to get it!  So let’s congratulate our winners, shall we?  And here they are:

Dr. Firuzi Mehta

Dr. Anastasia Kimtsou







P. Durga Prasad

Dr. Parshant Singla


Peter Dunseith


Thank you everyone!  See you again next time!
