Don’t Let the U.S. FDA Restrict Access to Homeopathic Remedies
The FDA has extended the comment period. It is very important to write your legislators and ask them to co-sign either Senator Orin Hatch’s letter or Representative Ryan Costello’s letter. (See easy links below) The FDA has ignored consumer comments but may listen to the legislators who oversee the FDA.

NHS Consultation to Stop Funding Homeopathy
The NHS England Consultation on ‘Items which should not be routinely prescribed in primary care’ included a proposal that homeopathy should not be prescribed to existing or new patients within the NHS. This consultation closed in October 2017 with recommendations issued by NHS England on 30 November 2017 to stop funding homeopathic prescriptions.
The British Homeopathic Association is asking for a judicial review. You can support them with a donation here:
Psorinum is a very useful remedy in patients convalescent from some acute disease. The disease has run its course but the patient remains weak, perspires freely from the least exertion, must lie down. He has no appetite, and seems completely exhausted. Psorinum will bring about a favorable reaction, and the patient soon improves.
You may be surprised to know that Psorinum is a most useful remedy in hay fever, one authority stating that he has cured more cases with it than with any other remedy.
In asthma we find a most unusual and peculiar symptom when Psorinum is the remedy, viz.: The patient is worse in the open air, worse from sitting up, and worse from leaning forward. He must lie down with the head low and with his arms stretched out from his body — cannot tolerate the weight or touch of his arms to his chest, and his breathing seems better when lying down.
Some Tips from E.A Farrington, MD
Apis may be of use in urticaria, when there suddenly appear on the surface of the body long pinkish-white blotches raised above the skin. The itching, burning and stinging are almost intolerable.
Terebinthina is useful in urticaria after eating shellfish.
Kali bromatum is indicated when the hives occur with nervous diseases.
Rhus tox when they are an accompaniment of ague or rheumatism.
Bovista when they are attended with diarrhoea, the stools being followed by tenesmus and burning.
Pulsatilla comes in when the hives are of gastric or uterine origin.
Calcarea ostrearum is especially suited to chronic cases
Sepia is indicated when the trouble is worse in the open air. (also Rumex crispus.)
Mephitis if taken in a low potency when one is exhausted, tones up the nervous system and relieves the exhaustion. The Mephitis patient seems to have the power of withstanding extreme cold. He feels less chilly than usual in cold weather. Washing in ice-cold water causes a pleasant sensation.
In sensorial depression Helleborus is similar to Phosphoric acid… Like Phosphoric acid, it has sensorial depression, apathy and perfect indifference. The patient is wholly indifferent as to his fate; he cares not whether he lives or dies. The difference between the two drugs is this: under Phosphoric acid there is drowsiness from which the patient is easily aroused, and then is perfectly conscious. This is not the case with Helleborus, which has conditions more nearly approaching the stupor of Opium

Some Tips from James Tyler Kent MD
Kalium Iodatum: A very strong degree of irritability, cruelty, and harshness of temper. He is harsh with his family and with his children; abusive. It will take all the sense of refinement out of his mind and then he will become sad and tearful.
Kali Carbonicum: The face becomes puffed, the eyes seem to protrude and then there is seen that which is commonly present in Kali carb, a peculiar sort of a swelling between the eyelids and eyebrows that fills up when coughing.
Borax: Anxiety increased until 11 P.M. In Borax a great change may occur at 11 P.M. The state of anxiety and nervous excitement may stop at that hour.
Ailanthus Glandulosa – In malignant scarlet fever. It seems able to change the character of the malignant forms of scarlet fever into a mild type.
Uric Acid deposits: The young prescriber will sometimes see the patient when he is passing large quantities of uric acid forming the red pepper deposits and he thinks he must stop that. But the patient is a great deal better off while he has it. To check it is like suppressing a skin eruption.
Belladonna: The complaints of Bell. in a general way are ameliorated from rest, and aggravated from motion; but there is a kind of restlessness with tearing pain from the hips down, most troublesome to observe, that keeps the patient walking all of the time.
Berberis: In Berberis the twinging, tearing, stitching, burning pains are everywhere, they never remain in one place, but are always moving, and they are not often affected by motion.
Sabadilla – Imagines himself sick, imagines parts shrunken, that she is pregnant when she is merely swollen from flatus, that she has some horrible throat disease that will end fatally.

Certain brain tumors double in the UK
The incidence of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the deadliest type of brain tumor, more than doubled in England between 1995 and 2015, according to a new analysis of national statistics. Researchers found a dramatic rise in tumors of the frontal and temporal regions of the brain. They suspect mobile phone use may be triggering the gliomas. Note: These are the same tumors found in the NTP 10 year $25million study on cell phone radiation.
