[Homoeopaths are giving medicines to patients. The
homoeo pharmacists put about ten drops of the tincture
to a 5 ml phial of pills. Regardless of whether the
homoeopath buys the potencies in dilution or pills, the
doctor inadvertently smells the medicine each time he
opens the phial to give a few pills to the patient. This
causes irritation, making them restless and/or haughty to
the point of telling that he need not learn any more thing
in homoeopathy. Also when the doctor himself is sick, no
homoeo medicine seems to act on himself.] 5. Life and Letters of Hahnemann by Dr. Richard Haehl and

8. (a) See the answer to question No. 12. (b) Diseases, more particularly acute, that are longstanding
and not cured in spite of best treatment, and where
patient is affected much, disturbing his daily routine.
We may call them by the term ‘Cachexia.’ Acute
diseases such cough, cold, diarrhoea, skin rash etc.
normally do not last long. When you find a patient with
these complaints standing long for years and bothering him much, you may use the term ‘Cachexia.’ This may
otherwise be called as weakness of the system or of a
part of body.

12. For a patient with chronic tonsillitis, you would generally look into the Repertory against the following: Tonsils, inflamed (quinsy, tonsillitis) (page 454 of Kent’s
Repertory) But remedies in this list may be useful for acute complaints of tonsillitis. For curing tonsillitis permanently, it needs ‘treatment of chronic diseases.’ Chronic tonsillitis is due to tuberculosis (See MEDICAL DISEASES OF
INFANCY AND CHILDHOOD by Dawson Williams, London: Cassel & Co. p. 338-348) When tuberculosis affects the lung it is called pulmonary tuberculosis or phthisis; with a family history of tuberculosis, when T. B. affects bones or glands it is called ‘scrofula’ or ‘struma’. All chronic affections of glands are due to tuberculosis in the family. Chronic affections of bones may be due to either tuberculosis or syphilis; (in syphilitic affections of bones we find ‘nightly boring’ pain.) Therefore, to cure a chronic tonsillitis patient, we must consider the following: Scrofulosis — glandular affections. Bar., Bell., Calc., Carb. an., Cist., Clem., Con., Dulc., Graph., Hep., Kali, Lapis, Lyc., Merc., Nitr. ac., Phos., Rhus, Sil., Staph., Sulph. [See p. 943 of Lilienthal] 13.

unsteadiness from knees downward, so that he
has to tread carefully, especially when eyes are
shut; he must see where he is going wants a
cane to support himself; stiffness in recti

Spinal irritation, loss of motility, prostration . . . Fibrillary
tremors. Rigidity of muscles; paralysis. Depresses the motor and
reflex activity of the cord and causes loss of sensibility to pain,
muscular weakness . . . Paralysis and tremors, chorea. —
Boericke Materia Medica—Physostigma.
Trembling of legs, as if one could not walk straight. A feeling as
if all power was going out of legs and they would give way; as if
the cause of the weakness came from that one spot in back, between hips, and took away all power below that spot from
limbs . . . Shuddering and trembling running down through all
nerves of body . . . Violent tremblings all over, in the street; felt
for an instant as if he should lose consciousness, and could hardly
get home; riding in a car for twenty minutes did not relieve
sensations . . . Loss of voluntary motion without loss of
consciousness . . . Complete relaxation of whole body, as if every
nerve was unstrung, even to the eyes, which felt as if all power
to see was going out of them. Giddiness and faintness without
uneasiness. Paralyses motor nerves, but does not impair
sensibility, intelligence and muscular irritability. — The Guiding
Symptoms of Our Materia Medica (10 volumes) by
