UK Government Agency Censors Info on Homeopathy

A homeopathic charity called Homeopathy UK (previously the British Homeopathic Association) has been banned from referring to conditions including depression, diabetes and infertility on its website by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). The ASA declared that Homeopathy UK broke the CAP Code, which requires that marketers must not discourage essential treatment for conditions for which medical supervision should be sought. Homeopathy UK stated that they never discouraged medical treatment.


Ivermectin in prevention of COVID-19

New Delhi: Regular use of the oral antiparasitic drug Ivermectin may significantly reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19, according to a review of available data by researchers who claim the medicine can help end the pandemic.

The research, published in the May-June issue of the American Journal of Therapeutics, is the most comprehensive review of the available data on Ivermectin taken from clinical, in vitro, animal, and real-world studies, its authors said.

Pierre Kory, president and chief medical officer of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), stated: “We applied the gold standard to qualify the data reviewed before concluding that ivermectin can end this pandemic.

Paul E. Marik, founding member of the FLCCC and Chief, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School in the US. stated:  “We are calling on regional public health authorities and medical professionals around the world to demand that ivermectin be included in their standard of care right away so we can end this pandemic once and for all,” Marik added.

Some Tips from Didier Grandgeorge, MD

Sabal surrulata – A helpful remedy to encourage breast development in teenage girls who are nervous, easy to anger and have a complex about their undeveloped bust.

Selenium – Think of this remedy in cases of fatigue and aging after an exhausting illness. Worse in the sun, hot weather and from strong odors.

Laurocerasus – To be thought of when a person has a lack of reaction to remedies in cardiac and thoracic affections.  His work is his life.

Magnesia muriaticum – They reject the mother and the father and are searching for a true friend, the shepherd who will guide them to paradise.

Camphora – Corresponds to authoritarian personalities, jealous individuals who fear neither God nor humankind (sometimes drive to murder, if need be )

The Spirit of Homeopathic Medicines – Didier Grandgeorge, MD

Some Tips From E.A. Farrington, MD


Helleborus is also similar to Apis in hydrocephalus.  Apis is useful while there is still some irritation of the brain as indicated by the cephalic cry.  Hellebore is  indicated when  torpor predominates and the child lies wholly unconscious.   The urine is suppressed.  There is automatic motion of one side of the body. You will notice, too, a peculiar corrugation of the muscles of the forehead.


Kalmia and Kreosote are useful in neuralgia, especially when there are burning pains.

Magnesia phos. is called for in neuralgia which occurs regularly each night.

Mezereurn has neuralgia in the cheek-bone or over the left eye.  The pains leave numbness and they are worse from warmth.

Senega – Senega is useful in chubby children.  It has tough expectoration, clear like the white of an egg; the cough is worse towards evening.  The expectoration is difficult to raise.

Sides of the Body –  Homoeopaths have been criticised for attributing to drugs the power of acting upon one side of the body in preference to another.  The simple fact that disease chooses sides, ought to be enough to lead one to believe that drugs may do the same.

Moschus –The most important hysterical symptoms of Musk are: Attacks even to fainting or unconsciousness; coldness of the surface, pale face, suffocative paroxysms, scolding until she falls unconscious.

Psorinum  – Sometimes, after acute or violent diseases, we  find the patient greatly prostrated,  depressed in mind, weak in body, low-spirited,  hopeless of recovery, and yet there are no organic changes remaining.  He has weakening night-sweats.   In such cases Psorinum is your remedy.

Juglans cinerea – Juglans cinerea is one of the best remedies in occipital headache. The pains are of a sharp, shooting character.  With this symptom you may use the remedy in diseases of the brain or spinal cord.

Hepar – Under Hepar the plainest food disagrees.  The cravings are unique, as if knowing  instinctively what will  “tone up”  the stomach, the patient longs for condiments or wine.

Clinical  Materia  Medica  –    E. A. Farrington, M.D.,

Some Tips from James Tyler Kent, MD

Agaricus – Children are late in learning to talk and walk, thus combining the features of two remedies, Natrum muriaticum, which has the symptom “late learning to talk,” and Calcarea carb., which has the symptom “late learning to walk.”

Graphites – When eruptions or discharges have disappeared suddenly from any cause and grave chronic phenomena have followed Graphites is one of the medicines to be studied

Allium cepa – I have heard patients describe the pain in the larynx on coughing, saying that it felt as if someone was reaching down with a hook at every cough. Tearing in the larynx with every cough.

Helleborus Niger – When questioned the Hellebore patient is not able to tell you what he has in mind, unless considerably aroused and agitated. But when so aroused he will talk about spirits, or say that he sees devils.

Aloe – There is a lack of control of the sphincter. This state is not always confined to diarrhea, because sometimes children will go around dropping, involuntarily, little, hard, round marble-like pieces of stool. They do not even know the stool has passed.

Hyoscyamus  – Sometimes he talks to dead folks; recalls past events with those that have departed. Calls up, a dead sister, or wife, or husband, and, enters into conversation just as- if the person were present.

Alumen  – It cures young children growing up with enormously enlarged and very hard tonsils in whom every cold settles in the throat.

Ambra Grisea –  Often a patient asks me one question after another, never waiting to have the first one answered, a flitting, flighty talker, who does not seem to realize that I have not answered his questions; that patient, I say to myself, needs Ambra grisea.

Ammonium Carbonicum – In the asthma there is this peculiarity: if the room is warm the dyspnoea increases until suffocation seems imminent; as if he would die for want of breath. He is compelled to go out into the cold air for relief. While the warm room increases the dyspnoea in asthmatic complaints the bodily state of the patient is worse from cold.

Doomsday Glacier is Melting

As one of Antarctica’s fastest melting glaciers, Thwaites Glacier, cheerfully nicknamed the “Doomsday Glacier,” has lost an estimated 595 billion tons (540 billion metric tons) of ice since the 1980s, contributing to a 4% rise in global sea levels since that time. The glacier acts like a cork in a wine bottle, stopping the rest of the ice in the region from flowing into the sea, so Thwaites Glacier’s collapse could potentially take the rest of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet with it, causing a 10-foot (3 meter) rise in global sea levels.

A case of suspected growth in right lung

This was a case of suspected malignancy of right lung. The 89 year old male patient had chronic cough which was not relieved by a long course of allopathic treatment. He had undergone prostatectomy some 5 years before, due to Ca prostate. He was admitted to a hospital and had CT Scan of lungs which showed an irregular growth of 26x17mm in apical and posterior segment of rt upper lobe.

They suggested biopsy. But his age was nearing 90, and due to this, his son didn’t agree to the procedure of biopsy (needle to be inserted from back median to rt. scapula to lung). His son, a homeopath, who was living in another state decided for homoeopathic treatment, and called me. I visted him in the hospital. He was apparently healthy but a patient of Alzheimer’s. The peculiar sound of cough, rattling, prompted me to prescribe Bromium. I had given him Carcino adenoma 200 4 doses and Bromium 30 4 times. The cough ceased within days.  One month later, a CT was repeated, and there was no lesion.
