Three Fowl Tips

Asthma : Canary and other singing birds are often troubled with asthma. The breathing is easily heard, and especially after the exertion of flying. Corallium rubrum, a half dozen pellets dissolved in the water-cup effects a speedy cure. Spongia is also indicated ; also Ipecac, in case of too much flesh, and Bryonia in asthmatic panting of old age. A little plantain seed is said to aid recovery in obstinate cases. This disease is often mistaken for croup.

Tumors: Domestic fowls are sometimes attacked with Tumors, which anyone will recognize at a glance. Isolate the fowl and dissolve a dozen pellets of Arsenicum each day in its water cup if it is supposed the Tumor is a natural growth, or, if caused by injury, Hepar sulph. Cauliflower-like excrescences or seedy warty growths require Thuja.

Vessicles: Small Vesicles, or pimples about the size of a pinhead, and pearl-like, will sometimes be found on the neck, comb and wattles of fowls. They hunt in sunny places, droop their wings and grow lean. On the seventh day the Vesicles ripen and improvement sets in or the fowl dies. Isolate the affected ones. Nitric acid is the best remedy. Dissolve in the water cup a dozen or more pellets each day until cured.

Tips on Homeopathic Pharmacy

Hahnemann to obtain metals in a suitable form for triturations, took in some cases a piece of the pure metal, and rubbed that under water on a wet stone until he had obtained a grain or two with which to start his trituration. This process is objectionable for various reasons, and so Stapf, one of Hahnemann’s earliest disciples, introduced the better method of employing the metals precipitated from their salts in solution. By this we have the metals not only much purer, but also in a better form for trituration.

Colored Remedy Bottles

Avoid blue-colored bottles, as blue light has a certain dynamic effect.

Cleaning Remedy Bottles

Right here one word about cleaning. Gentlemen, I do not believe in cleaning. Get your bottles new from the factory or from a house where you are sure that they get them directly from the factory, then you have to deal only with dust, and this is removed easily by shaking, cleaning with a small brush, washing and subsequent rinsing with alcohol. Never use one vial for two preparations. If our theory of potentization is correct, then there is not water enough in the Delaware to clean a bottle of the first preparation.

Raising Decimal Potencies

If you wish to raise your potencies all the way by the decimal scale, you have to take 10 grains of the sixth decimal (to start with a lower decimal trituration as the third, fourth or fifth, will absolutely make an inferior preparation), and add to this 90 drops of water, shake and pour from this 10 drops into a bottle containing 40 drops of water and 50 of alcohol, shake and from this take 10 drops into a bottle containing 90 drops of pure alcohol. The first of the above would then be the seventh decimal, the next the 8X, answering to Hahnemann’s fourth and the following the 9X. As this ninth was made, so you continue as high up as you please.
