 Some Tips from Alfred Pulford, M.D. 1863-1948


Cannot look at a knife, gun or blood without desire to kill; prostrated after menses; timidity and assurance alternate. Confusion: as to one’s identity, of intellect, things seem unreal. Fears evil, evening. Time passes slowly, like Cann-i.  Amelioration as day advances.

Calcarea Phosphoricum

Weak mentally and generally, tired, unable to stand mental effort, dreads mental exertion; thinking of one’s complaints causes them to grow worse. Restless. Depressed. Wants to be at home, and when there wants to travel and go from place to place, like the Tuberculinum child. Slow in learning to do things, like Baryta carb.

Ammonium Carbonicum

Averse to walking in open air and to a warm room which is intolerable. Averse to  being washed as it causes symptoms to recur. Face: puffy, lips bluish or purple. Tongue brown. throat dark red.. Audible palpitation, every motion increases the pulsations. All exuding fluids are acrid and excoriating. Always tired and weary. Body cold, cyanotic. Heart and pulse weak


Paralytically weak, anxious, timid, ambitionless, full of nervous fancies especially in p.m. Restless especially at night in bed, legs constantly moving; child afraid to go to bed alone in the dark. Can endure neither heat nor cold.


Anxiety, 6 p.m.; fears death while walking; unsympathetic. Confusion as from intoxication. Fear: of death, like Arsenicum, or that the heart will cease to beat if one moves, reverse of Gelsemium. Anxious: of future; wants to be alone, reverse of Arsenicum and Phosphorus. Sad from music, like Aconite, during menses.
