Homeopathy on the Farm

Homeopathy At Wellie Level (HAWL) is a non-profit organization run by veterinary surgeons and homeopaths, who teach the responsible use of farm homeopathy. This helps farmers reduce antibiotic use and improve the health of animals.  Christine Lees has been the volunteer director for the last 22 years. She is now retiring and says that HAWL needs volunteers to teach homeopathy to farmers and keep the program going. She’s asking for support in this endeavour.

Tips from Dr. T.F. Allen

Veratrum Viride

The dry, red stripe through the centre of the tongue, especially when associated with a bloated, livid face, seems quite characteristic. Most violent convulsions, epilepsy, hysteria, threatening tetanus. Furious delirium, with screaming, howling and striking.

Agaricus Muscarius

A valuable remedy for irregular tumultuous palpitation, especially for the irritable heart of tea and coffee drinkers and of tobacco-smokers (compare Arsenic and Spigelia).

Uranium Nitricum

Enormous appetite and thirst, but the patient emaciates. Numerous cases of diabetes are reported cured with this drug. It seems particularly indicated by the excessive thirst, emaciation, and, perhaps, also tympanitis.

Viscum Album

Numerous cases of retained placenta.  It causes uterine contractions and stops haemorrhages.

Pareira Brava

Cystitis, constant urging to urinate, with violent pain and straining, < from midnight till morning.Cystitis, with strangury, ability to urinate only when on the knees and pressing the head against the floor, the urine scalds the whole length of the urethra.

Kalmia Latifolia

In chronic or subacute articular rheumatism, the pains shift from joint to joint. With the neuralgic pains of Kalmia there are generally great weakness and trembling, symptoms of paralysis.  Also, inflammation of the sclera, with extreme pain on turning the eyes.

Euonymus Europaea

A very efficient remedy for engorgement of liver, so-called biliousness, headache, coated tongue, bad taste, constipation.  Passive congestion of liver. Constipation with haemorrhoids, also with severe pain in back like lumbago.

Clematis Erecta

Swelling of inguinal glands, which are sore on walking and are painful at night (Merc.).  Inflammation of the neck of the bladder, great pain on beginning to urinate, has to strain to pass a few drops.

Dolichos Pruriens

During pregnancy intolerable itching all over body at night. Complaints from worms and for affections of dentition. Herpes zoster beginning on l. scapula, extending to axila and then to sternum and backward to spine, with burning and smarting..

Strophanthus Hispidus

Valuable for weak heart, the pulse becomes slower, stronger and more regular. Acts well in chronic nephritis; it increases the flow of urine and diminishes the dropsy. Does not seem to act well when there is much oedema of the lungs.

Jaipur Dispensaries

Chief minister Ashok Gehlot has approved a proposal to open homoeopathic dispensaries at 225 block headquarters across the state. The new dispensaries will develop a robust network of homeopathic dispensaries and will also generate employment for homeopathy doctors and other staff. Approval has also been granted for the creation of 450 new posts for these dispensaries.

Warning on Sucralose

In May 2023, the World Health Organization advised people not to consume non-sugar sweeteners, including sucralose, for weight loss. The recommendation is based on a systematic review of the most current scientific evidence that link non-sugar sweeteners to type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and all-cause mortality, as well as increased body weight. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved sucralose for use in 1998 in 15 food categories, and as a general purpose sweetener a year later.
