3 Tarentula Cubensis Cases

A little girl of nine years, was taken ill with tonsillitis.  She had been given Mercur bin, Belladonna, Aeon. and other homoeopathic remedies prescribed by an amateur. When called to see her, I found high fever, delirium, red face, and both tonsils so swollen that suffocation was feared. A few doses of Tarent. cub. dispersed the swelling and accompanying symptoms in a few hours.

Four Tips from H. R. Arndt M.D.

Pulmonary Edema in Typhoid Fever

Tartar emetic (Antim t.) is an intercurrent remedy for oedema of the lungs with rattling in the chest from accumulated mucus. Should paralysis of the lungs progress in spite of Tartar emetic, then Moschus will help, if anything can.

Spigelia in Glaucoma

Spigelia has been found more valuable than any other remedy for the alleviation of the sharp, shooting and sticking pains which accompany this disease. These pains are worse on motion and at night.

Phytolacca in Ulceration

Phytolacca has some reputation in secondary lesions of the nose, throat, and mucous surfaces generally. Dr. A. E. Small has reported several cases of syphilitic ulceration of the throat and fauces cured with this remedy.

Blepharitis Ciliaris  (Inflammation of the edge of the lid)

Aurum metallicum is a valuable remedy when this trouble is associated

with granulated lids, this latter condition being often speedily and permanently cured.

Surgery Not Necessary

The most common type of shoulder dislocation — acromio-clavicular joint dislocation — is often treated with surgery.

$25 million study – Cell phone radiation increases cancer rates in animals.

The U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) is expected to issue a public announcement that cell phone radiation presents a cancer risk for humans. The move comes soon after its recently completed study showed statistically significant increases in cancer among rats that had been exposed to GSM or CDMA signals for two-years.



Tumor of Breast Cured

Miss Jessie S., age 20, having had her left breast condemned at a well-known London Hospital, excited my sympathy, and I had her brought to me, offering to treat her for nothing as she is but a poor orphan. She came on May 24th, 1888, and informed me that two years previously a lump came in her left breast, which lump persists in growing, and pains. In the left mamma there was a tumour in its outer lower fourth, about the size of a baby’s fist. I have pointed out in my book on “Tumours of the Breast,” that, in my experience, mammary tumours are most commonly of ovarian origin. It was so here. The left ovary was hypersesthesic and the menses had always been too frequent, at the time in question, every fortnight. Patient was a large salt eater. The mammae were rather unduly large. She had been recommended by the physicians and surgeons at the hospital to have very nourishing diet, and to take as much milk as possible!!  In three months the menses were normal; the tumour was gone, and thus far has not returned. Thuja 30,  Acid. Nit. 30, and Sabina 30, were used in infrequent doses, and each given during one month by itself alone and in the order named.

I ought to have added to the foregoing narrative that I forbad salt and milk, other than in very moderate quantities, and recommended a partial exclusion of meat from the patient’s diet, as also the ovary-irritating condiment known as pepper. Pepper, salt, and milk are bad in cases of mammary tumours from ovarian or uterine irritation, and many of these tumours are of such origin.
