Pointers to Common Remedies – Dr. M.L. Tyler

Some Tips from T.F Allen M.D.

Aurum metallicum: A most valuable remedy for acute inflammations, particularly with tendency to ulceration of the cornea. Extreme photophobia. In iritis, with intolerable pain in the bones, extending down into the face and nose, with great soreness all about the eye.

Ferrum Metallicum:   Great sensitiveness of the vagina to coition (Sep., Bell., Plat.). Suppressed menses, with haemorrhage from other parts, lungs, nose, rectum.

Erigeron Canadense: Persistent haemorrhages from bladder, in stone in bladder. Post-partum haemorrhages. Haemorrhages from uterus, with painful micturition.

Aloe Socotrina: The diarrhoea is particularly treacherous; that is, the patient does not have a proper sense of the accumulation of faecal matter in the rectum, and there is loss of power in the sphincter, so that the stool escapes easily, and when the desire for stool comes the patient is scarcely able to attend to it.

Raphanus Sativus:  Distressing twitching of the eyelids, almost prevents vision, with rotary motion of the ball.

Bulgarian Academy of Sciences Tries to Suppress Homeopathy

In a written address, scientists from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) have asked the rectors of the medical universities in Varna and Stara Zagora to suspend all forms of training in homeopathy at their universities, the BAS press center said.

“It is unacceptable that the pseudo-scientific principles of homeopathy, which contradict the basic tenets of physics and chemistry, are offered to medical and pharmacy students or graduates even after they have passed the compulsory courses in medical physics, biophysics, and chemistry, in which modern science is taught,” the scientists wrote in their address.

Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated

Vaccinated patients who are hospitalized for COVID-19 are at a significantly higher risk of mortality, a recent study found. Vaccinated patients had a 70 percent risk while those unvaccinated had 37 percent.

The majority of people with long COVID were vaccinated, a Thai study found. The authors followed 390 people who tested positive for COVID, of which 97 percent were vaccinated.

COVID-19 vaccinations are linked to sudden sensorineural hearing loss, according to a recent French report. Another Australian study linked the shot to hearing and balance disorders.
