Tips from the Masters and Important News

U.S. Homeopathy Under Threat

The  U.S. FDA’s threat to ban homeopathic remedies continues.  You can post a message against this action at this link, which includes an option for people outside the U.S.

Even Better:  In the U.S., contact your legislators and tell them to stop the corrupt FDA from banning homeopathic remedies.

Homeopathy Book for Lay People:

Many lay people will be struggling to find holistic and homeopathic means of protecting themselves in the current coronavirus epidemic. Homeopathy books for lay people generally focus on minor or self-limiting problems.  In 2007 I anticipated that lay people could be faced with epidemics or other serious natural or manmade problems for which conventional medicine would be either unavailable or ineffective. Therefore, I wrote a book for such a situation. It is called Homeopathy An A to Z Home Handbook.

It explains homeopathy in layman’s terms, gives its history and successes and tells how to use the remedies for everything from self-limiting problems to serious acute ailments, including epidemic diseases. Ordinarily one wouldn’t expect lay people to attempt treating serious ailments, but these are not ordinary times.

If you are a homeopath who would like your patients to have information on homeopathy and how to use it, or if you are a lay person who uses homeopathy, this book can serve you well right now.  I have made a special effort to describe each remedy distinctly, so it can be differentiated from other remedies

I don’t mean to imply that this book will make lay people experts in homeopathy, but with the information it provides, they will be able to act, even if imperfectly. In a critical situation, and that makes all the difference.  I wrote this book to empower people, and now is the time for that.

It’s available throughout the internet. If you have any questions, please contact me at [email protected]

Some Tips from James Tyler Kent, M.D

Aconitum nap:  Sciatica when the sensation is felt down the nerve like ice water. Creeping, tingling and crawling in the face, with or without pain. Everything tastes bitter, except water, and the Aconite patient longs for water. It seems almost impossible for him to get enough.

Actea Racemosa (Black Cohosh) : There is a terrible mental state that alternates with physical states. It is an overwhelming sadness or gloominess, she is bowed down with sorrow. Sits and mopes in great sadness, like Psorinum and Pulsatilla.

Aesculus Hippocastanum  – Great suffering with blind hemorrhoids. The hemorrhoidal veins are all distended and ulcerate. This remedy is often supposed to be suitable to hemorrhoids that do not bleed, but it cures bleeding piles also.   It also cures varicose leg ulcers with a purplish areola.

Hyoscyamus – Refuses to take medicine because it is poisoned. Imagines, that he is pursued, that people have all turned against him, that his friends are no longer his friends. He carries on conversations with imaginary people.

Hypericum: A painful cicatrix with pain shooting up toward the centre of the body following up the nerves.  Hypericum is the medicine for that.

Ignatia:  Convulsions in children in the first period of dentition. Spasms in children from fright.

Kreosotum :. Excoriating discharges, pulsations all over the body, and profuse bleeding from small wounds: When these three things are associated in a high degree Kreosote should be examined.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s Children’s Health Defense Submitted Historic Case Against U.S. Government for Wireless Harms

Dafna Tachover

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3, 2020 — Children’s Health Defense (CHD) is leading a historic legal action against the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) for its refusal to review their 25 year old guidelines, and to promulgate scientific, human evidence-based radio frequency emissions (“RF”) rules that adequately protect public health from wireless technology radiation. The Petition contends the agency’s actions are capricious and not evidence-based. The Petition was filed on 2/2/2020 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

The Petitioners include parents of children injured by wireless devices, a mother whose son died from a brain tumor from cell tower exposure, physicians who see the epidemic of sickness in their clinics and Professor David Carpenter, a renowned scientist.

“This action represents the first time in 25 years that we finally can expose the FCC fecklessness in court, and give those who have been injured by the FCC’s disregard for human health a voice,” says Dafna Tachover, CHD’s Director of Stop 5G & Wireless Harms.

The FCC’s obsolete guidelines and the false sense of safety they provide enabled the uncontrolled proliferation of wireless technology and the ongoing deployment of 5G, which will exponentially increase exposure to this harmful radiation.

CHD is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending the epidemic of children’s chronic health conditions. The organization recognizes that wireless technology radiation is a contributing factor to the exponential increase in sickness among children.

  • US FDA threat must stop. It is because Homeopathy remedies sale is included in US as food item. All Senior Homeopaths and remedies producers should try to to get remove the control of FDA. Just being a part of signing an appeal will not help.
