Calcaria picrata for Eye Problems

Having suffered from two or three styes and another one coming, I tried this remedy, which aborted the one in process of formation in twenty-four hours, and I have had none since, now nearly one year. Many cases in the clinic were given it for the same affection with the same result.  I tried it with phlyctenular troubles, both of cornea and conjunctiva, and the same prompt success followed. In a number of cases it completely subdued these frequently obstinate and protracted inflammations within 48 hours.

Pain After Ovarian Cyst Operation

We do not approach an operation now for the relief of an ovarian cyst with the dread that we formerly did. In the last three years we have never administered one particle of Morphia or Opium of any kind, but relied upon Hypericum or the indicated remedy instead. It is simply astonishing to see how rapidly a case will progress to a recovery after an ovariotomy if the system be not compelled to labor under the deleterious effects of a sedative or hypnotic

Some Tips from Dr. Dr. G. M. G. Jahr 

In contused wounds, if whole pieces of flesh are torn off, Calendula helps much more rapidly and reliably than Arnica, only the external use must not be continued too long. Even in gun-shot wounds, where the whole limb is shattered Calendula is indispensable.

Ear Wax: For an abnormal accumulations of ear-wax, Conium undoubtedly occupies the first rank. For deficiency of ear-wax, we depend upon Calcarea or Carbo veg.  The latter is, together with Causticum, an excellent remedy for badly-smelling cerumen.

Convulsions during pregnancy are dangerous since they may lead to miscarriage. Belladonna is a very reliable remedy in such cases, likewise Cham, and Ignatia, or, if blood is at the same time discharged from the womb, Ipecac. and Hyoscyamus Gelseminum is an excellent remedy for eclampsia of pregnant or parturient females.

Hysterical Spasms — One of the most effective remedies for these spasms, which sometimes not only simulate eclampsia but likewise epilepsy, is Ignatia. Silica is my great remedy for hysterical spasms, if Ignatia is not sufficient.

Cataract — In this condition I have accomplished most with Sulph., allowing the dose to act a long time. If the action of Sulph. seems exhausted, I then commonly resort to Calcarea and next to Lycopodium with tolerable success. If these remedies do not help, I have success with Magnes, Cannab. and Silica, and, in the case of old people, Conium 30th, of which I cause a solution of six globules to be at the same time applied externally. In the case of an infant that was born with cataract, Sulphur effected considerable improvement ; a cure was finally completed by means of  Euphrasia and Lycopodium

Glaucoma — Phosphorus is the surest remedy for this disorder, and helps more frequently than any other remedy. If a cure is not completed by Phosphorus, Lycopodium and no less Silica will be found indispensable.

For spots on the cornea and dimness of this membrane my first and chief remedy always is Euphrasia. If insufficient, I give afterwards Sulph., Calc, and Nit acid at long intervals.

Arsenicum as an Important “Horse Remedy”

Arsenic is the horse’s remedy, as Pulsatilla is the sheep’s, and Antim crud. the pig’s.

The horse typifies the Arsenic temperament. It is an exceedingly nervous animal, constantly moving about, restless to a degree, and very prone to take fright.

trying other remedies, Tartar emetic (Ant. Tart) produced almost instantaneous relief, and the child recovered. Dr. Ludlum expressed the belief that Antimonium tart was practically and pathologically specific for post-natal collapse of the air-cells.

Bryonia in Pericarditis

Bryonia, is, next to Aconite, the most useful remedy in pericarditis. No remedy so closely resembles in every particular the rheumatic diathesis.  It has a specific affinity for serous membranes, causes acid condition of the blood , causes all the pains so characteristic of rheumatic fever, and the products of the rheumatic inflammation (serous and plastic effusions).


Petroleum is an excellent remedy in those cases where the patient experiences relief by constant eating. The pain is pressing, drawing. Emptiness and weakness at the stomach, water-brash.

Arsenicum Iodatum
