American Institute of Homeopathy (AIH) COVID-19 Database

The American Institute of Homeopathy (AIH) has launched an ambitious effort to collect COVID-19 cases (homeopathic) from around the world. This project is part of a larger collaborative effort with homeopathic colleagues around the world. We will be issuing reports on findings from the data at least weekly for the forseeable future. The database can only be accessed by practitioners with the security clearance to do so. Practitioners interested in learning more may email [email protected].

3 Remedies in Cystitis – Inflammation of The Bladder

Cantharis: Painful urging to urinate. Painful discharge of a few drops of bloody urine. Burning, cutting pains during urination. Tongue may be fiery-red, or blistered. May be curative in any disease, if these urinary symptoms are present.

Mercurius Cor: Straining to pass urine, which is passed drop by drop. But with Merc. cor. the tongue is very foul, and the mouth offensive. Excessive straining of rectum and bladder. (Lil. Tigr.)

Terebinthinum: “A less acute Cantharis.” Soreness, abdomen and bladder. Urine, ” odour of violets,” typical. Bleeding bladder.

Dr. Margaret Tyler – Acute Conditions

CANCER – Some remedy indications – Dr. E.A. Farrington

Argentum Nitricum:  Useful in thin, dried up patients. Gnawing, ulcerating pains.

Arsenicum: Sharp, lancinating pains, as though hot coals were burning the part; a red-hot knife thrust into the part could not be worse. Extreme restlessness. It may be of use, but does not frequently cure. It has cured Epithelioma, but in genuine open Cancer, it sometimes relieves when indicated.

Arsenicum Iodatum: In some cases, it relieves, when Ars. fails.

Belladonna:  In some cases, it brings relief, where Ars. fails.

Bromine: A very useful remedy in Cancer of the mammary gland. Burning and cutting pains, sometimes so marked, that it feels as if a string were pulling the gland into the axilla [Crot. Tig., Paris Q.]. The breast is hard and on palpation, a dull, subdued sort of throbbing may be felt in it.

Carbo Animalis:  Particularly useful in Cancer of the breast or of uterus. In mammary Cancer-the glands are indurated into little nodes or small circumscribed portions which are as hard as stone; later, the skin around the indurations becomes bluish and mottled. The axillary gland on the affected side becomes indurated and there are burning, drawing pains through the mammae. In Cancer of the uterus-induration of the cervix. Metrorrhagia and burning pains extending down the thighs and thin, offensive vaginal discharge.

Carbo Vegetabilis:  Burning pains and mottled appearance of the surrounding skin. It is also useful in cancerous ulcers, as in ulcerating Scirrhus.

Cicuta Virosa:  The cancerous growth is covered by a honey-colored scab. It has cured two cases of Epithelioma.

Clematis:  Has cured Epithelioma

Conium:  Has cured Epithelioma. It is also indicated in the beginning of Scirrhus. Glands affected are of a stony hardness; usually there is little or no pain, although sometimes there may be darting pains.

Hydrastis:  Has cured Epithelioma and it may be a remedy for uterine Cancer. Has been used both internally and externally, when indicated by its characteristic symptoms. Especially it has marked goneness at the epigastrium and palpitation after every motion.

Iodine: Indicated in the cancer of uterus, particularly with profuse Leucorrhoea, which is characteristic, being yellowish and very corrosive; this in conjunction with sallow, tawny skin, increased appetite, etc., makes it the remedy, which will relieve many cases and cure some.

Kali Bichromicum:  May be useful in cancer of the stomach.

Kreosotum:  Cancerous ulcer of the cervix uteri, with very acrid Leucorrhoea, excoriating the parts over which it flows. Burning, sensitiveness and tumefaction of the cervix, with bloody ichorous discharges, sensitiveness to touch or to coitus, and putridity.

Lachesis: Same symptoms as in Carbuncle. The remedy should be accompanied with Brandy.

Lapis Alba:  Used by Grauvogl, who cured several cases of Scirrhus with it.

Morphia: Extreme susceptibility to pain; pains are so violent as to threaten convulsions or cause twitching and jerking of the limbs.  It does not cure, but relieves the pain.

Phosphorus: Cancer of the stomach, with pains in stomach, vomiting of food as soon as taken-the vomited matters containing a dark, grumous, semi-solid substance looking like coffee-grounds and haematemesis.  It is particularly useful, when the Cancer is about to pass into the stage of ulceration.

Vinca Minor – Useful in post-climacteric haemorrhages due to Carcinoma.

 Veratrum Viride
