 U.S. Federal Trade Commission and Food and Drug Administration threatens homeopathy and dietary supplements

The FTC sent letters to 670 companies, including those selling dietary supplements, homeopathic products, and functional foods, warning that if they make claims without proper scientific substantiation, they will face large penalties. The FTC and the FDA are requiring clinical trials to back up all health claims, which would not be economically feasible for homeopathic remedies and could make them unavailable for months to years.


Digital X-rays produce 70% less radiation than traditional X-rays


Some Tips from Dr. J.T. Kent

Ipecac in Gastritis

Ipecac cures inveterate cases of gastritis when even a drop of water will not stay down; everything put in the stomach is vomited, continuous gagging, sharp pain in the stomach, pain in the back, below the shoulder blades, as if it would break, vomiting of bile.

Kali carb and Suppression

Kali carb is deep-acting, long-acting. It cures conditions due to psora, to  suppression of eruptions in childhood,  the closing up of old ulcers and fistulous openings with a history of troubles ever since.

Kalium Sulphuricum

Kalium Sulphuricum has cured epilepsy, lupus and epithelioma, and many desquamating skin affections. It has cured most obstinate case of chronic intermittent fever. The patient craves fresh and even cold air, and he is ameliorated in open air and cool air. Aggravation by exertion and becoming heated.

Agnus Castus

Loss of memory, despair, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, fear and peevishness. These patients suffer from headaches, photophobia and nervous symptoms.  He has been to many advisers, and they have told him he has Neurasthenia. He must have Agnus castus.


If you have ever been going through a place where there are cobwebs and a little cobweb has strung across your face you will know what a peculiar sensation of crawling it produces, and you cannot leave it alone until it is removed.  That sensation particularly belongs to Alumina, Borax, Bar. c.


In many cases you would not be able to distinguish between Apis and Apocynum, so near alike are their swellings, their bleedings, their distensions, and their disturbances. But all the way through, this medicine is aggravated from cold, the patient himself is aggravated from cold.


Phosphorus has been a useful remedy in locomotor ataxia, palliating many of the symptoms; the pains; restoring the reflexes. Phosphorus is often suitable and restrains the progress in multiple sclerosis where there is much weakness and trembling of the extremities.


Phytolacca centres in the mammary glands. Soreness and lumps in the breasts from each cold, damp spell; becomes chilled and a sore breast results. When a mother says she has no milk, or that the milk is scanty, thick, unhealthy; dries up soon; Phytolacca becomes then a constitutional remedy if there are no contra-indicating symptoms.


Perception is slow. He memorizes with difficulty. Comprehension is difficult. He cannot recall words to express himself. The operations of the mind are slow. The mind will not operate, yet the patient is full of imaginations and emotions.

 Allium Cepa

The patient and all the phases of his “cold,” his coryza, his  laryngitis, his cough, all his complaints, are aggravated by warmth.  On going to bed in the evening Allium has its most troublesome aggravation. A watery discharge drips from the nose constantly, burns like fire, and excoriates the upper lip until there are rawness and redness.

  • Alan, such important information about digital X-rays being safer, thanks! Also, good to know that apocynum is < cold while apis is better for it. Meanwhile, the FTC has got to be stopped! Of course, it's just doing the bidding of the ever-paranoid Big Pharma!
