Research Conference Summaries

You can find a list of presenters at the HRI research Conference 2015 and summaries of their research at :

Suicidal from Head Injury

People who sustain a head injury through concussion are three times more likely to attempt suicide later in life according to researchers at the University of Toronto in Canada. They found that people who get even one concussion early in life can experience a threefold increase in their risk of suicide.

Editors note: Homeopaths have known this and what to do about it, for over a hundred years. Suicidal thoughts after head injury is the indication for Natrum Sulphuricum.

Rhus for Pulmonary Hemorrhages

We may give Rhus in many affections arising from over-exertion. For example, if a musician, from prolonged performing on wind instruments suffers from pulmonary haemorrhages, Rhus will be his remedy. If from violent exertion a patient is seized with paralysis, his trouble may yield to Rhus tox.

Death by Drug Trial

Medical rights activist Anand Rai found that more than 2,000 people in India died as a result of serious adverse events (SAEs) during pharmaceutical drug trials from 2008-11. Yet, only 22 cases, about 1 percent, received any compensation –on average about $4,800 per family. The drug companies themselves decide who is to be compensated.

Sequelae of Influenza

Sulphur is valuable for pulmonary affections after influenza and not traceable to tubercular infiltration. If influenza left the patient with a cough and gray, sweetish-salty expectoration, wheezing and rattling in the chest, Kali hydriodicum proved admirable. The spasmodic cough after influenza, tormenting the patient for hours, was almost always relieved by Hyoscyamus (or Belladonna). But if the coughing fit did not cease until a mass of frothy mucus with a yellowish purulent nucleus had been raised, Conium proved the main remedy. If the cough broke out after a meal and food was vomited Ferrum aceticum was found to be the specific remedy.
