Some Tips from Dr. W.A. Dewey

Mercurius protoiodide

Mercurius protoiodide is especially of use in corneal ulcers.  Dr. Deady regards this remedy as our best in this affection. The ulcerated surface looks as if it had been chipped out by the finger nail, and there is accompanying a yellow coated tongue.

Kali Bi in Measles

Measles associated with ear symptoms and swollen glands especially calls for Kali bichromicum and it is one of our best remedies for laryngeal affections, with a hoarse, dry, croupy cough.

Kali muriaticum

Kali muriaticum is one of our best remedies for follicular pharyngitis where there is a gray or white exudation.


Spigelia is a useful remedy in anguishing substernal pain which radiates to neck and arms, irregular pulse, tendency to syncope, palpitation and sharp stitches in heart, pulse weak and irregular, or full and bounding.

Sabadilla has worm symptoms with nausea, vomiting and colic.

Calcarea carb. is a valuable remedy to eradicate the disposition to worms.


In abscesses at the roots of the teeth it is one of our best remedies, and it is often efficacious in toothache due to this cause. It will often abort suppuration when used in the higher potencies, as in tonsillitis, where it is a most valuable remedy.


Gelsemium has complete motor paralysis, rather functional than organic in origin. It is one of our best remedies in post-diphtheritic and in infantile paralysis. Paralysis from emotions. Aphonia, paralysis of the larynx.

Some Tips from T.F Allen MD

JaborandiConvergent strabismus.  Especially useful after operations for strabismus.

Mezereum  – In herpes zoster extremely valuable even for the after-pains. Violent neuralgia of the face and head following herpes zoster.

Naphthalinum – A valuable remedy for hay fever, many inveterate cases seeming to have been entirely arrested: sneezing, eyes inflamed and painful, head hot. Also spasmodic bronchitis and asthma, > open air, with soreness in chest and stomach, has to loosen the clothing;

Antimonium Crudum – Valuable in the indigestion of children from sweets, associated with very peevish disposition.  Toothache in hollow teeth extending into head, aggravation from cold water. Tongue thickly coated white.

Caladium Seguinum – The most efficient remedy in pruritis of the vulva and vagina.

Calcarea Fluorica  – In biochemical therapeutics it is recommended for varicose and enlarged veins, Malnutrition of bones, especially of teeth, many cases of cataract, chronic synovitis of knee joint. Exostosis after injuries.

Equisetum hyemale – Dysuria during pregnancy and after confinement. Incontinence of urine in old men.

Dr. T.F. Allen  –  Hand Book of M.M.

Alumina – Nutrition is decidedly defective. They have a wrinkled, dried-up appearance, and are extremely prostrated.

Plantago Major – Best known remedy for toothache. Great sensitiveness of the teeth. Teeth feel greatly elongated and sore to the touch. Cannot bear cold air or contact.  Used locally and internally.

Ambra Grisea – Thin, spare people, very weak, sleeplessness, and cold all the time.

Pulsatilla – When the symptoms call for this drug, the temperament must not mislead the prescriber. The stereotyped doctrine that Pulsatilla is not useful in choleric, sanguine, malicious, irritable temperaments, who are energetic in their movements, is a great error, and led me astray for years.

Silicea – In chronic inflammation and caries of the joints, no remedy can equal Silicea, especially in children with copious perspiration of the head, and great tenderness of the surfaces of the body.
