The eczema of Staphisagria oozes an acrid moisture from under the scabs, and new vesicles form from the contact of the exudation. They generally itch very severely, and one peculiarity is, that when the itching is relieved by scratching in one place it immediately appears in another.  The eczema is often on the head, around the ears, but the most marked action is in the eyelids.

Hep B vaccine for babies

The U.S. CDC recommends that all infants be vaccinated with three doses of hepatitis B vaccine beginning at 12 hours of age. Pharma claims that adverse effects of the vaccine only occur in 1% of the patients. Since 70 million people will get the vaccine, that comes 700,000 people! Some of those people will be permanently injured or die.

Plain Talks on Materia Medica with Comparisons- Willard Pierce, M.D.


Where the patient is very excitable and weak, the application of a remedy by olfaction is more efficacious and safe than the administration of a substantial dose of homoeopathic medicine, however fine and highly potentiated. This is done by holding the mouth of the vial, containing one small globule moistened with the medicine, first to one nostril, and if the dose is to be still more efficacious, also to the other nostril of the patient, who takes a momentary inspiration. This process of olfaction is not to be repeated at shorter intervals, than if the medicine had been given in substantial form.

Four Aphorisms for Dr. J.T Kent

  1. “It is worse than useless to give a second dose until the effects of the first dose have ceased.”
  2. “Never, under any circumstances, make use of local applications for an internal derangement. It is the highest order of medical profanity!”
  3. “A Sycotic is never cured unless a discharge is brought back”.
  4. “When a remedy has benefited a patient satisfactorily, never on your life, change your remedy, but repeat that remedy so long as you can benefit the patient. Do not regard the symptoms that have come up.”
