Three Tips from E.B. Nash

Psorinum during convalescence

Psorinum is very useful for weakness or debility during convalescence from severe acute diseases. The patient sweats profusely when taking the least exercise. Choice may have to be made between Psorinum and China. Loss of fluids, blood, suppuration, etc., would decide in favor of the latter and itching eruptions or tendency thereto, before or during the sickness, the former.

Benzoic Acid

I have seen wonderful relief from Benzoic acid in nephritic colic with the characteristic offensive urine. In dribbling of urine of old men with enlarged prostate it has also done good service.


Ledum Rheumatism

The Ledum rheumatism begins in the feet and travels upward. This is the opposite of Kalmia. Ledum may be indicated in both acute and chronic forms of this complaint. In the acute form the joints are swollen and hot, but not red. The swellings are pale and the pains are worse at night and from the heat of the bed

Vaccine Overload

In the U.S., if you follow the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) , a child would receive 36 vaccines by six years of age. A single vaccine contains so much aluminum, that it exceeds the safe limit for aluminum.


Aconitum in puerperal peritonitis

Aconite has a specific action on serous membranes, and is one of the best, if not the very best remedy in most cases of puerperal peritonitis. In the treatment of these cases, when given low, and in doses repeated every one or two hours, it has served me remarkably well.

When you find the milk of nursing mothers contain urea in excess, owing to derangement of the kidneys, Colchicum is your very best remedy.

Silica in Necrosis of bone

In necrosis of bone, Silicea is perhaps our most valuable remedy. Its use

has accomplished astonishing cures, even when the disease had progressed to open ulceration. Let it be given continuously for weeks and even months. If there is not a clear improvement in four or six weeks give a lower attenuation, even as low as the 3rd.

Three Tips from J.T. Kent

Kalium Bichromicum

Recognized by the copious ropy mucous discharges from all mucous membranes, it is also a most important remedy in rheumatic affections of the joints with swelling, heat and redness, whenever these conditions wander around from joint to joint.

Allium cepa

Allium cepa is a wonderful medicine for babies with colic. Cutting, rending, tearing pains, drawing the poor little thing almost double. It screams with the violent cutting in the lower abdomen.

Acetic Acid

Patients who have been weak for many years. Emaciation, weakness, anaemia, loss of appetite, burning thirst and copious pale urine are a combination calling for Acetic acid.



Sepia in Cancer

Attention has been called to the fact that two cases of epithelial cancer of the lower lip have been cured by Sepia. A third case of this disease is so interesting as to be worthy of narration. An epithelial cancer, far developed, had been excised. The wound healed kindly. After a few months the patient began to emaciate, and to exhibit every sign of cancer cachexy. The decline was alarmingly rapid. Eminent surgeons diagnosed internal cancer. No hope of recovery was entertained. The complex of symptoms indicated Sepia, which was given, 200, and effected a com- plete and rapid restoration of health. The health remains good to this day (ten years).

FDA gives a pass to Actos

A study in 2009 found that people who took the Diabetes drug Actos were 83% more likely to develop bladder cancer. A number of countries either banned or restricted it, including France, Germany and India. The FDA merely put a warning label on it, but allowed sales to continue.

Three Tips from Dr. E.A. Farrington

Ferrum Phosphoricum

Ferrum Phosphoricum given in that stage of inflammation described as “dilatation of the blood vessels”, prevents further extension of the disease. Thus in engorgement of the lungs, it prevents the subsequent pneumonia. Whenever the discharge contains blood and you have not the asthenic fever that belongs to Aconite, you may depend upon Ferrum phos.


Apocynum in Hydrocephalus

Apocynum is a remedy in hydrocephalus. The head is large; there is bulging of the frontal bone; the fontanelles are wide open; there is squinting and, in extreme cases, the patient is blind. One side is paralyzed. The case much resembles Apis, but lacks the cephalic cry. It is indicated in more advanced cases than Apis. One or two cases have been cured by the continued use of the remedy.


Saccharum officinale

There is a remedy which is similar to Calcarea ostrearum, and that is Saccharum officinale. It is indicated in children who are large-limbed, fat and bloated, with a tendency to dropsy. The child is dainty and capricious. He cares nothing for substantial food but wants little “nick-nacks”. He is always cross and whining, and if old enough he is indolent and does not care to occupy himself in any way. Everything seems to be too much trouble to him.
