Cinnamon in Threatened Miscarriage

Next to falls, the most common mechanical cause for a miscarriage is over –lifting. Cases of abortion coming for that reason do not respond nearly so well to Arnica as you would expect.  The patients complain of dragging pain and are restless. This kind of case responds very well to Cinnamon.

Homoeopathy in Practice – Dr. Douglas Borland


Ambra Grisea

For persons with advanced age who complain of impairment of function, such as weakness, coldness and numbness, usually of single parts, especially one sided complaints, Ambra Grisea is considered a great remedy. The third potency can be repeated with advantage.

Some Tips found by Pankaj Titar

Do not use Sulphur high in diabetes as serious or dangerous troubles like abscesses, furuncles, anthrax, etc. may set in. It is advisable to use Psorinum instead of Sulphur.

Dr Clarke recommends Uran-nit, Apoc, Kali-nit, Scilla in case of Diabetes Insipidus; Uran-nit, Op for Diabetes Melitus.
Dr Ghose considers Cephlandra-indica as a grand remedy in Diabetes Mellitus.

Dr Bernoville recommends Ars-alb as a ground remedy (which removes sugar in urine quickly), Insulin 30 intercurrent remedy and Amm-iod, Cephlandra-ind, Syzg-jam as other drugs for the condition.

As usual, the causative factor – the triggering agent, if any, eg. a mental shock may first need Ignatia or Op, or Arnica for an injury, after which the diabetic remedy or the indicated remedy will act better.

Ten Tips from:  ‘Hompath WildFire Software

1 Jalapa Flatulent Colic When a child is restless, cries and weeps whole night without an obvious cause, take it as a case of night flatulent colic. In such cases JALAPA is the remedy. Dr. P.S.Kamthan
2 Kali Carbonicum Abdominal Colic In the abdomen, KALI CARB. Has repeated attacks of colic, which suggest COLOCYNTHIS, the patient being doubled up with the pain. COLOCYNTHIS cures again and again, but the attacks recur.The patient needs KALI CARB. to end the trouble. Dr. J.T. Kent, M.D.
3 Kreosotum Cancer – Uterus and Cervix In cancer of the uterus, especially of cervix, with terrible offensiveness and bloody foetid oozing, KREOSOTUM has atleast palliated and made the neighbourhood of the patient bearable. Dr. M.L.Tyler, M.D.
4 Lachesis Mutus Carbuncle In carbuncle and cancer, we think of LACHESIS when the surrounding area is swollen and purple or blackish and pus forms very slowly. LACHESIS given under these circumstances increases the quantity and improves the quality of the pus and the patient-s strength improves. Dr. Farrington, M.D.
5 Laurocerasus Officinalis Congenital heart disease When it comes to congenital heart disease, after the children have been dosed with coramine and all the modern heart stimulants and tonics, from adrenalin on down, I have come along with my LAUROCERASUS and had normal heart action follow. It is a precious good remedy, virtually due to the HYDROCYANIC ACID, which it contains. Dr. William B. Griggs, M.D
6 Ledum Palustre Black Eye LEDUM PAL is unequalled (200th) as a remedy for black eye from a blow, unless the eyeball itself is involved; then SYMPHYTUM is preferable. Dr. Pulford, M.D.
7 Lilium Tigrinum Astigmatism Think very highly of LILIUM TIG in cases of ciliary spasm where the neuro-muscular derangement of the eye has caused a certain degree of astigmatism. Several cases have been recorded in which such conditions disappeared under its use. Dr. Woodyatt
8 Lithium Carbonicum Diarrhoea Diarrhoea after eating chocolate or drinking cocoa Rai Bahadur Bishambar Das
9 Lycopodium Clavatum Tuberculosis I am myself very fond of LYCOPODIUM in cases of suspected tuberculosis in young men, where yet there is no evidence of tubercular deposit. Dr. Hering, M.D.
10 Magnesia Phosphorica Angina Pectoris In cases of angina pectoris, where immediate temporary relief has been obtained with nitrites, but where there is still discomfort, MAG.PHOS. will often help. It should be given in hot water and I usually dissolve 10 tablets in a quarter glass of water and direct the patient to take a sip or a teaspoonful every, 5 or 10 minutes, until better. Dr. Garth W.Boericke, M.D.



6 Tips from Dr. Subrata K. Banerjea

When Hydrastis and Phytolacca fail, Conium checks and Condurango cures the breast tumour.

Lycopodium : An occasional dose sometimes aids Berberis in curing.  Acts better when preceded by some other antipsoric. The action of Lycopodium is facilitated by Carbo-veg on 6th or 8th day.

Chelidonium often cures after Lycopodium is apparently indicated but fails.

Kali-carb acts when Nat-Mur fails in Amenorrhoea.

In piles, Aesculus cures when Nux-vom, Sulphur and Collinsonia only palliate.

In vaccinosis, when Thuja fails and Sil is not indicated, the remedy is Antim tart.

 Foetal Heart Rate

The sounds of the heart of the fetus in utero are double, naturally very small and weak, resemble the ticking of a watch wrapped in a napkin, vary in frequency, but range from 120 to 160. The movements of the foetus increase their rapidity, but the mother’s pulse does not affect them.

Warning on Arsenicum


In double pneumonia, Arsenicum acts as a vital stimulant, warms up the patient and makes him feel he is going to get better. But mark this, in 24 hours he will die unless you follow Ars with the proper remedy. Give him the antidote and natural follow of Ars, which is Sulpur or Phosphorus.


J.T. Kent –  From: Caution in the Use of Remedies – M. Fayazuddin


Warning on Echinacea


Echinacea has been used for appendicitis, but remember that it promotes suppuration.  A neglected appendix with pus formation would probably rupture sooner under its use.


M.L. Tyler – From: Caution in the Use of Remedies – M. Fayazuddin


More Law of Cure           

Under proper treatment, the symptoms should move from the more dangerous miasm to the less dangerous miasm…from syphilis to sycosis to psora, or from syphilis to psora.  Eg. In treating asthmatic bronchitis, if ringworm develops on the skin, it is a bad sign, as the disease has traveled from Psora to Sycosis.

The Follow-Up – Dr. Narendra Mehta


Tongue Diagnosis


The base of the tongue represents the kidney and urinary bladder. The extreme tip represents the heart and the area around it, the lungs. The sides represent the liver and gallbladder, with the right side more significant of the liver.

 Four Tips from Dr. E.A. Farrington

We find Bromine useful in pnenmouia, particularly when it affects the lower lobe of the right lung, hence lobar pneumonia. We often find nose-bleed as a concomitant symptom when Bromine is indicated in these cases.


Spongia is useful in organic affections of the heart. The patient cannot lie flat on the back with the head low without bringing on a spell of suffocation. He is frequently aroused from sleep as if smothering. He sits up in bed with an anxious look and flushed face, and rapid, hard breathing.


Phosphoric acid is one of the best remedies we have for the bad effects of grief and depressing emotions, particularly for the chronic effects of disappointed love. It is here particularly indicated after Ignatia. Ignatia suits the acute symptoms and Phosphoric acid the chronic.


In the male, Graphites produces uncontrollable sexual excitement and violent erections. The most important symptom of Graphites is impotence. There is a want of sensation during coition with no discharge of semen.

First Homeopathic Mental Asylum in the U.S.


In 1870, there was established a state lunatic asylum at Middletown under homoeopathic management. It was not the first homoeopathic asylum in the world, but was the first of its kind in America under purely homoeopathic management. It was formally opened for patients on April 20, 1874. It became known as Middletown State Homoeopathic Hospital.

Causticum in Hay Fever


Do not forget Causticum in hay fever, when there is itching inside or outside the wings of the nose, sneezing upon waking in the morning, a viscid nasal catarrh and obstruction of the nose while lying down.

Kali Karb


The Kali Carb patient is so sensitive to a draft, or even normal movement of air, that he may go from room to room trying to find the source of a barely perceptible draft of no consequence to others.
