Good Pharma Scorecard

Researchers from Harvard, Yale and New York University created the “Good Pharma Scorecard”, to shame pharmaceutical companies into disclosing the results of clinical trials. Published in the journal BMJ Open, it ranks Phamra companies on their transparency. They started this initiative after discovering that a third of clinical trials that led to new drug approvals were never disclosed to regulators in 2012. The pharmaceutical company Gilead tops the shame file. In 34 trials of one new drug, they only reported 8 of them. According to Bioethics International President Jennifer E. Miller, only 12 percent of Americans believe that pharmaceutical companies are honest and ethical.


Collinsonia seems specially adapted to those women who have hemorrhoids either during, or as a sequel to, pregnancy and parturition. Where the trouble dates from gestation or from labour, and the condition has become chronic, there is no remedy to compare with it for efficacy. We have cured a dozen cases of this kind that have been sent to us by physicians from as many states. (Dr.Ludlum)

How to Disprove Homeopathy

Professor Robert Hahn, a leading medical scientist, physician, and professor in Sweden, stated that studies depicting homeopathy as ineffective are specious.
In his blog he states: Only by discarding 98% of homeopathy trials and carrying out a statistical meta-analysis on the remaining 2% negative studies, can one “prove” that homeopathy is ineffective”.

3 Tips from the Medical Visitor (circa 1895)


The Sepia headache rarely appears every day, but every eight to fourteen days, and during the attack the patient seeks rest and desires to lie perfectly still, yet an internal restlessness forces her to get up and walk about.


Think of this remedy in recurring attacks of quinsy where the remedies only palliate but do not cure.

Case of Cough

A cough had been running for five months and many medicines had been tried by a homoeopath with no result. The following symptoms led to the selection of Drosera and a cure. Expectoration of yellow mucus. Coughs occur in paroxysms, about three hours apart, lasting an hour.

1 in every 45 American children diagnosed with Autism

Researchers from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with those from the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), have reported that the number of children marked with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has grown significantly. They stated that 1 in 45 children in the U.S. are now diagnosed with autism.

Editor’s note: The rise in autism follows the increase in vaccination.

Artemesia abrotanum

In acute rheumatism, with great pain, before any swelling occurs, it is a sovereign remedy. I have given it to a patient suffering with rheumatism, who would

scream when moved, or cry out when one came near him (Arnica), and in forty-eight hours he was well.

Colchicum has vertigo when sitting down. We have twenty-eight remedies that produce vertigo when standing or walking, but only this one when sitting.

The FTC vs Homeopathy

This is an excerpt from a comment submitted to the FTC by William J. Olson

General Counsel – Center for Medical Freedom:

“The case against homeopathy is not one that is made by persons choosing to use homeopathic products who are harmed by them. The case against homeopathy is made by first, those who want to run other people’s lives, and second, those who compete with homeopathic products, but are losing in the marketplace. The FTC has no legal or moral authority to do the bidding either of persons who want government to act as if it were our mother, or on behalf of an industry that seeks to gain financially by manipulating government to put its competitors out of business.”

6 Tips from Willard Pierce, M.D (Circa 1911)

Car Sickness

Cocculus is our most valuable remedy as a prophylactic against car sickness, or for sick headache caused by riding or reading in the cars. I do not recall a single failure with it when used in the 30th for two days before taking a trip on a steam railroad.

Injuries to Testicles

Conium is a valuable remedy for the testicles when they are enlarged and very hard, especially as the result of injuries.


Colocynth is a very valuable remedy in sciatica and is frequently indicated. The pains are extremely violent and paroxysmal, of a tearing, shooting or boring character, with relief from heat, pressure, and by flexing the leg on the abdomen.


Pareira has constant urging to urinate, with violent pain and straining. Strangury, with ability to urinate only when on the knees and pressing the head against the floor. The urine scalds the whole length of the urethra. “A very valuable remedy

which can be depended upon” (Carleton).

Fluoric Acid

In diseases of the bones, Fluoric acid follows well after Silica and is especially indicated when the latter apparently does some good but fails to complete the cure.


Kreosotum is a valuable remedy for difficult dentition with dark, infiltrated gums. The child is very restless and of course cries. The teeth, when they do appear, show dark specks on the surface, soon grow black and crumbly and begin to decay.

Be Wary of U.S. Hospitals

Every year, an estimated 648,000 people in the U.S. develop infections during a hospital stay, and about 75,000 die with one of those infections, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s more than twice the number of people who die each year in car crashes.

Three tips from Dr. George Royal

Aurum in Decompensation

Aurum is a valuable remedy when the compensation of a hypertrophied heart begins to break, causing the wandering pains, the irregular pulse, the palpitation, the feeling as if the heart would stop beating and the mental symptoms.

Cracked Nipples

For cracked nipples there is no remedy I so often use as Graphites. I apply the cerate locally and give the 30th internally.

Kali Bich

The best remedy we have for catarrh of the pharynx, larynx, bronchi, and nose. Note the chronic nature of the condition, also the tough tenacious mucus, the ulcerations, aggr morning and eating, and amel lying down and warmth.
