Some Tips from Dr. Margaret Tyler


Opium is unable to subdue permanently any one single pain, because it does not cause in its primary action one single pain, but the very reverse, namely, insensibility, whose inevitable consequence (secondary action) is greater sensitiveness than before, and hence a more acute sensation of pain.

Kali Carbonicum

Kali carb. has burning pains which compare with those of Arsenicum. Haemorrhoids burn like fire; sensation of a red hot poker thrust into anus. The burning haemorrhoids of Kali carb. are “temporarily relieved by sitting in cold water.


Paeonia has proved very curative in chronic non-syphilitic ulcerations.


A curious regional effect of Dulcamara is at or about the umbilicus. Here the pinching and shooting pains occur again and again in the provings: and Dulcamara has proved marvellously useful in pain, or in skin affections, of umbilicus. The pain is “in the hole” as a wee child expressed it.

Lac Caninum

Despondent, hopeless: nothing worth living for: her disease is hopeless! Has not a friend in the world. Delusion she is looked down upon. Delusion that she is short. Fear of snakes. Sensation as if breath would leave her, when lying down: must get up and walk. In mastitis, the great indication being they cannot bear a jar; has to hold them up when stepping and going down stairs.

Some Tips from Dr. J.T. Kent

Nux Moschata

This remedy is especially suitable for lean women, those who have lost flesh. The breasts are flat. I remember a case of a woman thirty five years old whose breasts which were once well rounded, became perfectly flat. Nux moschata restored the breasts. The Nux moschata patient is sensitive to wind, to a draft, to damp air. She performs all her duties and yet seems to be in a dream. She seems not to know her friends.

Belladonna and Sabina

Belladonna and Sabina are the two most important remedies in abortion at three months.

Ammonium Muriaticum

Ammonium Muriaticum cures capsular cataract, when the symptoms agree.

Natrum carboncum

Natrum carboncum  has aversion to mankind and to society. Sensitive to certain persons. Music causes a tendency to suicide, melancholy, weeping and trepidation.

Tips from The Indian Homeopathic Review – (circa 1910)

The pains and suffering in a case of fissure of the anus were relieved by a single dose of Hepar 200. There was a history of syphilis and mercury.

Propaganda against homeopathy intimidates Ontario School

(CBC) Georgian College says it is cancelling its controversial advanced diploma program in homeopathy. The announcement came just hours after the college told CBC News it had no plans to change the program, which has been criticized by doctors and scientists from across the country.

“In light of the recent response from our local community and beyond and in consideration of our students, Georgian College has made the decision to cancel the homeopathy program,” the Ontario school said in a statement on Friday. Students already enrolled are being offered the chance to withdraw or transfer to another program.


Once I succeeded in curing a case of headache with Oleander. The headache was relieved by forcibly looking cross-eyed. Looking up the materia medica, I found  that Oleander had pain in the head relieved from looking sideways. That was why I prescribed the remedy.
