Helpful Hints from W.A. Dewey MD


If there is any ” best remedy” for iritis it is Mercurius corrosivus. It is almost a specific for simple and syphilitic iritis, accompanied with pains in the eyes, extending over the top of the head.

Kali chloricum

Kali chloricum is said to be the most homoeopathic of all remedies in Bright’s disease. It has scanty, dark, albuminous urine containing casts. It excites a violent nephritis.

Gallstone Colic

Burnett claims that Hydrastis is the best remedy in gallstone colic.

Veratrum viride

Intense cerebral congestion, rapid pulse, tendency to convulsions, followed by prostration. Elliot considers Veratrum viride in the lower potencies our best remedy in acute meningitis.

Secondary Parotitis

Rhus toxicodendron is our best remedy in secondary parotitis. The left side is more

apt to be affected. Symptoms are worse at night. Rhus corresponds to dark red swellings, with tendency to erysipelatous inflammation.

Albuminous Nephritis

Dr. Ludlam considers Mercurius corrosivus our best remedy for the albuminous nephritis of pregnancy and Baehr lauds it in suppurative nephritis.

Three Remedies in Sciatica

Colocynth is the most important remedy in Sciatica, corresponding to the worst cases. There are pains in the sciatic nerve extending to the knee or to the heel, worse from any motion, and especially aggravated by cold.

Gnaphalium is quite similar to Colocynthis in sciatica and O’Connor thinks it is the best remedy in the absence of the other symptoms, and many others consider it specific. It has intense neuralgic pains along the nerve, and numbness

Rhus tox is the best remedy for a combination of lumbago and sciatica. Sciatica arising from over-exposure to wet or from lifting, wrenching and over-exertion. Great relief from warmth.


Hughes places Baryta carbonica among the most prominent ones for acute tonsillitis, saying that in his hands, it has been of almost unfailing efficacy. It is especially of use when the trouble is in the parenchyma of the glands, and suppuration rarely follows its use.

Hahnemann University Hospital Plans to Close

Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia (U.S.) announced it will be closing on or about Sept. 6th, 2019.  It had been taken over by the for profit Philadelphia Academic Health System. The company blamed the closure on “continuing, unsustainable financial losses.”

Former Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Scott Gottlieb will join the board of directors of Pfizer.

After conducting a war on homeopathy, (FDA) Commissioner Scott Gottlieb will join the board of directors of Pfizer.  That’s what you call the revolving door method.  In his letter of resignation his list of accomplishments included:

“Cracking down on sham homeopathy”.  During his tenure he also threatened to sanction states that allowed medical exemptions for vaccines. Now that he’s joining a giant drug company, it’s clear where his loyalties have always been.

Glyphosate Herbicide

Austrian legislators approved a total ban on glyphosate, putting the country on track to becoming the first EU member to forbid all use of the cancer causing herbicide.

The French government pledged to ban glyphosate “for its main uses” by 2021.

Glyphosate herbicides are currently banned or Restricted in 17 countries.

In the U.S., glyphosate now contaminates most grains as well as other crops. The USDA, which regulates agriculture products, fully approves of glyphosate.

Sweden Shuns Mandatory Vaccination

The Swedish Riksdag (parliament) recently rejected seven motions that would have put forced vaccinations into law. A representative declared “’It would violate our [Swedish Constitution] if we introduced compulsory vaccinations, or mandatory vaccinations.’

  • A few years ago my family doctor wanted me to take a synthetic drug and said it was “evidence-based” to work. I asked her if that meant there was evidence it actually cured the illness or if it just meant it suppressed symptoms. She agreed it meant just suppressing the symptoms. So I told her I’d find a homeopathic remedy instead. I don’t remember what the problem was but it’s been gone for years. I’m 68 years old and not on any synthetic drug. I rely mostly on homeopathy (along with a fairly good diet, nutritional supplements and occasionally acupuncture (NAET).

  • “In one of the Paris revolutions, 1849, Jahr writes that after he began using Calendula, he saved all cases of shattered limbs that refused amputation. It prevents suppuration and certainly promotes healing.”

    Wow! I googled “Jahr calendula amputations” because I wanted to find some written cases about this, curious about this remarkable ability of Calendula in such extreme situations. I came across “Jahr’s New Manual” in google books that detailed many cases, including the case of a boy mutilated by some equipment, whose life threatening injuries were healed in part by using Calendula. He had some skin and muscles of a leg torn off which resulted in a deep flesh wound penetrating to the bone. The entire affected area was covered in compresses which had been moistened in calendula tea. The wounds healed, granulated and formed new skin, completely healed within seven weeks. That is stunning! Thank you for including this reference to Calendula as a dramatically strong healer. Elaine Lewis has also mentioned it in her Tidbits, where she used it as a powerful antiseptic as a mouth rinse!
