Four Tips from Dr. E.A. Farrington

Apis must be given cautiously during pregnancy. If given in low potency and frequent doses it may bring about a miscarriage, especially before or at the third month, because Apis produces bearing down in the uterus.

Cinchona is often indicated in inflammatory rheumatism, but only later when the fever has become intermittent in its character. The joints still remain swollen.   The characteristic pains are jerking and pressing. The patient will not permit you to approach, crying out with pain if you touch the affected parts

Antimonium crudum is indicated in adults who are tormented with gout, when gout has become constitutional. There will be gouty nodes in many of the joints. It   helps, provided there are the gastric symptoms characteristic of the remedy, but not otherwise.

We find Mercurius often indicated in pneumonia. Here it requires that the right lung be affected, and that there are also icteroid symptoms. The skin is yellow. There is sharp stitching pain through the lower portion of the right lung.

E. A. Farrington, M.D. – Clinical Materia Medica



A Caution about Hepar

In membranous as well spasmodic croup, Hepar sulph is given later in the disease, when there is little or no fever, the child is weak and perspires easily and the cough is loose. Allen says it “ should be given very cautiously even in a late stage of membranous croup as over-dosing with it is apt to cause recurrence of the more acute symptoms, to lessen the secretion of mucus, rendering the cough dry and tight, and increase the difficulty in breathing.”

Anacardium’s Strange Temperament

Anacardium laughs at serious matters and is serious over laughable things. When walking, he is anxious, as if someone were pursuing him. He suspects everything around him. Disposed to be malicious, seems bent on wickedness. Sees devils prompting to murder.

Keynotes and Characteristics – H. C. Allen, M.D.


Vaccine Exemptions Limited

The Centers for Disease Control in the U.S. only allows vaccine exemptions for people on chemotherapy, organ transplant recipients and children born with Severe Combined Immune Deficiency. For all other medical conditions there is no vaccine exemption. Doctors giving the vaccines are protected from vaccine injury lawsuits.

Calcarea ostrearum

Calcarea ostrearum is often forgotten in scarlatina. It is to be placed alongside of Zinc, particularly in scrofulous children, when the rash is either undeveloped, or else recedes leaving the face unnaturally pale and bloated.

Homeopathy in Tuscany

The Homeopathic Clinic in Lucca, funded by the Tuscany Region, began in 1998 to assess the feasibility of integrating complementary medicine into the public health care system. Over 4,000 patients have been seen at the Homeopathic Clinic in Lucca. The results of research there demonstrate that homeopathy can effectively integrate or, in some cases, substitute for allopathic medicine.

An Important Tip on Case Taking

One of the most important questions that you can ask during taking the case is, “What does your husband (or wife or boss or friend) complain about you?” It’s a shortcut question that actually gets you some of the best information. When we analyze a case, we have to find the side that they are not going to volunteer upfront in the nice face.

And you thought drug companies were about healing…

Teva Pharmaceuticals Ltd will buy Allergan’s generics business for $40.5 billion in cash and stock, in a deal that will catapult it into the world’s top 10 Pharma companies.





Psychiatric Drugs Kill

Psychiatric drugs lead to the deaths of over 500,000 people a year aged 65 and over in the West, says Danish scientist Prof. Peter Gøtzsche. He warns that the benefits of these drugs are “minimal,” and have been vastly overstated. “Given their lack of benefit, I estimate we could stop almost all psychotropic drugs without causing harm.” Gøtzsche is Research director at Denmark’s Nordic Cochrane Centre. His views were published in the British Medical Journal.





Three Tips from Dr. Constantine Hering

If children, while teething, have diarrhoea, do not interfere with it immediately, but wait a day or two if they have no other symptoms requiring treatment.


In small pox, Variolinum is the most important remedy. Give one or two

When an insect has found its way into the ear, place the patient upon the opposite side, and pour sweet-oil* into the ear, until the insect becomes visible; then take it out with a small roll of paper, or a pair of delicate forceps.

*A mild edible oil such as olive or rape oil.

Law to prevent labeling of GMO food in the U.S.

On July 23, 2015, the United States House of Representatives passed a bill that would prevent states from labeling GMO foods. H.R. 1599 would remove people’s right to know what they’re eating.

Russia Demands Labeling of GMO Foods

How to Avoid the GMO Potato in the U.S.
GMO potatoes were banned in Europe after researchers found serious potential health risks from them. The GMO potatoes are now sold in U.S. stores unlabelled!

Here’s how to identify the potatoes at the grocery store so you can avoid them:

  1. The bag states “reduced bruising” (top right corner)
  2. The bag states “fewer black spots” (top right corner)
  3. The bag is also labeled “White Russet Potatoes”
  4. The bag has the J.R. Simplot website link on it.

Crib Biting in Horses

The term is applied to the bad habit which some horses have whilst eating, or after having eaten, of biting the manger or any other solid body. The effect of this is to wear out the anterior edges of the teeth, and induces flatulency. Crib biting generally indicates a disturbance of digestion. This accounts for the state of emaciation into which horses thus affected eventually fall. Nux vomica and Arsenicum are the principal remedies to be employed.

New manual of Homeopathic Veterinary Medicine – F. A. Gunther





All day long he finds himself looking into the things that should have been done. They have simply escaped his mind; he has forgotten them. So the mind is worn through in places.

Aesculus in dragging pain

Aesculus is often indicated in the troubles of women, with great dragging pain in the pelvis. Many a time has Aesculus cured the dragging-down pain of the pelvis with copious leucorrhoea and pressing pain in the hips when walking.

J.T. Kent M.M.

Sepia in Prolapsus

In prolapsus of the uterus, Sepia is the remedy, par excellence. Yet not to be used to the exclusion of Nux vomica, Pulsatilla, Belladonna and Podophyllum. The simultaneous irritability of the bladder and the presence of leucorrhoea, together with the hot flashes and the sympathetic affections of remote organs, serve especially to indicate it.
