Six Tips from Dr. G. M. G. Jahr

For thickening of the cornea, I give at once Calc, with the best results. I have likewise observed good effects from Cann., although, in order to complete the cure, I had again to resort to Calcarea, and afterwards to Nit ac.

If gangrene threatens to supervene during a contusion, Lachesis is a sovereign remedy as long as the injured part has a dark violet-red color. If the color is already black, China or Arsenicum has to be resorted to.

For spasmodic closing of the lids, if there is no inflammation, I know of no better remedy for it than Hyoscyamus.

Lumbago — The specific remedy for this disease is not Pulsatilla, as was formerly supposed, but Rhus tox. So far I have cured almost every case with Rhus in three to four days, except perhaps two or three cases where I had to complete the cure with Pulsatilla

For arthritic nodosities nothing surpasses in efficacy, Calc, Lycopodium and Causticum (Also benzoic acid). If these nodosities become very painful, red, inflamed, Acon, and Arn sometimes afford speedy relief.

For gastric vertigo the chief remedy is Pulsatilla, which will scarcely ever have to be followed by Nux vomica.

Univ. of Barcelona Drops Degree Program in Homeopathy

The master’s degree in homeopathic medicine was dropped by U. of Barcelona because of its “lack of scientific basis”.  The postgraduate degree in homeopathic medicine is no longer approved by Spain’s Health Ministry. This was the only training for medical doctors and veterinarians in Spain. The Master’s program was created 21 years ago with the help of the Faculty of Homeopathy.

An Attack on Homeopathy in Canada

Health Canada’s is about to forbid labeling for homeopathic medicines for children under 12.   Manufacturers of OTC remedies will no longer be able to label what the remedies are used for. Listing the indications has been legal since 1997.

Baryta Muriatica is one of our deep acting constitutional remedies. Many cases of aneurism have been benefited by it. It has cured most stubborn cases of epilepsy.

The patient desires open air, yet the open air often increases the symptoms. Dread of bathing, like sulphur. Often worse in cold air and from becoming cold

Three Tips from Bernhard Baehr, M. D. (1872).


We consider Hyoscyamus a valuable remedy in hypostatic pneumonia when supervening during the course of other chronic affections. In pneumonia complicated with typhus, in the pneumonia of old people and when acute edema of the lungs sets in. A violent delirium should always direct our attention to Hyoscyamus.


No remedy is better able than Sulphur to effect the reabsorption of an exudation that has already existed for a time, and in our opinion this proposition applies to all inflammatory processes.


No remedy corresponds by its physiological symptoms more fully than Digitalis with the group of pathological phenomena evolved by disease of the mitral valves.

Mercurius vivus

Dr. Small states that he finds no remedy acts so promptly and satisfactorily in removing a hoarse cough, with much tickling in the larynx, as Mercurius Viv. It is also excellent for the cough of chronic bronchitis and consumption, with similar symptoms.

The Homeopathic Vade Mecum of Modern Medicine and Surgery – E. Harris Ruddock MD – 1869

Ammonium Carbonicum

There is no remedy as good as Ammonium carb. for the last stage of pneumonia when resolution is taking place more rapidly than expectoration and absorption. The symptoms: puffed, besotted, hot face, coarse rattling rales, weak, feeble pulse, unconsciousness and general cyanosis. Antim tart. for a similar condition differs only in that the face is pale and covered with cold sweat.

Textbook of Homeopathic Materia Medica – George Royal, M.D.

Diphtheritis and Mercurius Cyanatus

Dr. Grubenmann states that in a late epidemic, he cured with this remedy in its 15th to 80th centesmimal, 50 cases, excluding all the light catarrhal forms at that time, without ever seeing the disease spreading to the larynx or showing any paralytic sequelae. It has also cured cases where the disease had already invaded the larynx.

4 Tips from Willard Pierce, M.D.

Cocculus is a valuable remedy in hernias, umbilical and especially inguinal, and it is particularly indicated when the abdominal muscles are weak and it seems as if a hernia would easily take place. Worse on the right side.

Argentum nitricum is a valuable remedy for the chronic nervous results of alcoholic stimulants, or from excessive sexual indulgence , with great restlessness, fear of being alone , depression of spirits and general aggravation after eating .

Convallaria is a valuable remedy for weak heart, with irregularity and with or without valvular lesions. There will be great dyspnoea and inability to lie down, scanty urine and dropsy. It is useful for dilation of the heart due to emphysema or kidney disease.

Zincum valerianicum is a valuable remedy for globus hystericus, with breathing impeded from sensation of a plug.

Plain Talks on Materia Medica with Comparisons Willard Pierce, M.D.


Dr. Hughes, in his Manual of Pharmacodynamics, confirms the therapeutic value of Naja in diseases of the heart: “To quiet chronic nervous palpitation, to aid in the restoration of a heart recently damaged by inflammation, and to assuage the sufferings of chronic hypertrophy and valvular disease.”

Major News Organizations are Pawns of Monsanto
