Nine Tips from Dr. H.C. Allen

Santonine sometimes cures in worm affections when Cina seems indicated, but fails (Mar. v., Spig.).

Colchicum Autumnale often cures in dropsy after Apis and Arsenicum fail.

Phytolacca occupies a position between Bryonia and Rhus and cures when these though apparently well indicated, fail.

After Collinsonia has improved piles, Aesculus often cures.

Consider Anthracinum when Arsenicum or the best selected remedy fails to relieve the burning pain of carbuncle or malignant ulceration.

Consider Antimonium tart for bad effects of vaccination when Thuja fails and Silicea is not indicated

Consider Sulphur to facilitate absorption of serous or inflammatory exudates in brain, pleura, lungs, joints, when Bryonia, Kali mur. or the best selected remedy fails.

The chief distinction between Brominum and Iodum is, the former cures the blue-eyed and the latter the black-eyed patients — Hering.

Tabacum – Vomiting during pregnancy, when Lactic acid fails (Psor.).

Summary of a Cured Case – by Dr. C.M. Boger

A middle aged woman subject to frequent aphthae showed a ragged, serpiginous, rapidly advancing cancerous ulcer of the inside of the lower lip penetrating almost to the outer skin. The main ulcer was large as a cent with a deep fissure running down toward the chin and there were already several metastatic ulcers on the soft palate. She had wandering, shooting pains through the body that left soreness behind. Milk left a sour taste and she was indolent, fat and not very clean. A dose of Kali bichromicum MM, repeated in sixty days, made a complete cure.

Some Tips on Alumina from Dr. J.T. Kent


The hairs all over the body fall out. Parts become entirely denuded of hair; the hair of the scalp falls out extensively

You will find in an Alumina subject, bleeding from all mucous membranes.

Dimness of vision, as if looking through a fog sometimes described as through a veil. A misty dimness of vision.

The conductivity of the nerves is impaired so that a prick of a pin upon the extremities is not felt until a second or so afterwards

Alumina has produced affections analogous to locomotor ataxia. It produces numbness of the soles of the feet, the fulgurating pains, the vertigo when closing the eyes, and produces staggering and disturbances of coordination. In an early stage of locomotor ataxia Alumina will check the disease process by bringing into order the internal state of the economy.

Some Tips from Dr. E.A. Farrington

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

Argentum nitricum  is indicated in diarrhoea  in which the  bowels move as soon as the patient drinks.

In post-diphtheric paralysis, Gelsemium is our most valuable remedy. In one very severe case of this disease Gelsemium effected a perfect cure.  The child did not have sufficient strength to hold herself up.  The spine in the upper cervical region was bent backwards and one side of the body was paralyzed.

Gelsemium is indicated in complete atony of the uterus. The neck of the uterus is as soft as putty, perfectly flabby and the body of the uterus does not contract at all.  The bag of waters bulges freely from the os. There is no attempt whatever at expulsion.   In such cases, give a few doses of Gelsemium.

Arnica is indicated in whooping-cough in children who have a violent tickling cough, which seems to be excited whenever the child becomes angry. The child loses its breath when it cries.

Homeopathy in Italy

One in six Italians use homeopathic medicine at least once a year according to  research by the health sector research institute DoxaPharma. The study found that some 20,000 doctors in Italy recommend the use of homeopathy.

Hahnemann’s Integrity

At one point Hahnemann quit the practice of medicine rather than harm people and make them sicker with the current medicines. Considering that prescription drugs are now one of the leading causes of death in the U.S., how many allopaths would still be practicing if they had Hahnemann’s integrity?

Causticum vs Lycopodium Children

The main distinguishing feature between Causticum and Lycopodium children is hat Causticum children have a definite aversin to sweets, whereas Lycopodium children desire them.

Silica vs Sanicula Children

Never think of Silicea without considering the possibility of Sanicula. The physical symptoms are almost identical.  The Sanicula child is more irritable, more unstable mentally Attacks of laughter and tears follow each other more readily.  He is more obstinate.

Baryta c. vs Borax Children

A feature which distinguishes Baryta from Borax children is the manner in the child is frightened. The Baryta is scared of anything strange, while Borax is scared of any sudden noise.  Also the Borax child has not the same degree of inability to learn. Rather, he is simply idle.
