5 Tips from George Royal, M.D.   

Arsenicum Iodatum has relieved the “shortness of breath” (genuine air hunger) of patients whose lung conditions had passed beyond the curative stage.   Weakness, sharp pain, itching, thirst for cold water, burning.  Agg. from cold wind, dry weather, exertion. Amel: warmth. Profuse, acrid, burning corrosive discharges with profound prostrations.

Sabina has relieved chronic arthritis and gout in fleshy, plethoric women when the pains are aggravated by warmth and ameliorated in cool, open air. The pains are sharp, sticking, tearing and may appear in any muscle or joint in the body. Use the lower potencies and repeat frequently.

Cina – There is no child more contemptible than the Cina. He is easily excited, weak, screams, strikes and bites, is cross and obstinate.  Grinding of teeth, cross, touchy disposition, picking and burning of nose, paleness about the mouth.

Alumina has been quite extensively used for the sore throat of public speakers when there is great irritability and dryness.  The sticking pains and inclination to clear the throat are marked. General relaxation of the uvula is also marked.

Argentum Nitricum  is the best remedy for the early purulent stage of gonorrhea when there is a profuse discharge, terrible cutting, burning pains and frequently bloody urine. Use the 3X or 6x internally with the local application.

Three Tips from Carroll Dunham, MD

Veratrum album has sluggishness or apparent inactivity of the rectum and lower intestine. It is a most useful remedy in obstinate constipation when Nux vomica has failed to relieve, and especially in the constipation of infants.

Pulsatilla – A peculiarity of Pulsatilla pains generally, is that they are often confined to one half of the body, like those of Ignatia, Thuja, Spigelia, Valeriana and Silicea.

Natrum muriaticum – The hair falls out when touched or combed. This is common in nursing women and Natrum muriaticum stops this.

New Data on Mammograms

A 25 year long study involving 90,000 women found that mammograms have no impact on breast cancer mortality.1  The study found that the death rate from breast cancer was virtually identical between those who received an annual mammogram and those who did not. What’s more, 22 percent of screen-detected invasive breast cancers were over-diagnosed, leading to unnecessary treatment. The researchers concluded “the data suggest that the value of mammography screening should be reassessed.”2

U.S. Plans Phoney GMO Labelling Law

Leaders in the U. S. Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry have reached a “bipartisan agriculture biotechnology compromise solution.”  It will ban  all state laws labeling GMO’s across America. Any foods with 50% or less of GMO’s could be considered non-GMO. Animal products derived from GMO-fed animals could be called “all natural.”  Food companies will place a scannable QR code on their labels. Consumers would have to scan every food item with their cell phones to determine which contain GMO’s. Senators Debbie Stabenow (D) and Pat Roberts (R) authored this deceptive legislation.  You can write a letter of protest here:

Russia Bans GMO’s

Proposed Taxes on Homeopaths Rejected

The Pakistan Homeopathic Medical Association (PHMA) opposed the proposed imposition of taxes on homeopathic doctors, saying the government has no justification as it never patronised the profession. They said that in Pakistan, there is no homeopathic college, hospital and or dispensary established by the government. If the government wants to impose a tax on homeopaths, it should also provide facilities to them.

Boiron Homeopathic Pharmacy Wins
