Heartburn Meds Can Kill – 50% increased risk of death
Millions of people are prescribed proton pump inhibitors (PPI’s) to treat heartburn and other gastrointestinal problems. H2 blockers are another drug used to reduce stomach acid. Researchers compared patients taking H2 blockers with those taking PPIs for one to two years, and found that those on PPIs had a 50% increased risk of dying over the next five years. Senior author Ziyad Al-Aly, MD, an assistant professor of medicine stated: “No matter how we sliced and diced the data from this large data set, we saw the same thing.”

Phosphorus in Dengue
I had many successes with Phosphorus in the crisis of low platelet counts after dengue fever. Phos works as a specific in this pathology through a symptomatology of Phos : “Copious bleeding even from very small wounds.” (Clarke) This indicates the deficiency of platelet cells which is a barrier to arrest the bleeding by coagulation.Kindly communicate this to all our homeopathic doctors.

If not progressed too far, Ars and Carbo veg do more than any other medicine and Spigelia also shows good effect in some cases.
For thickening of heart valves, Spigelia and Kalmia are very efficient remedies.

Some Tips from the Indian Homeopathic Review
Hiccough in the old or very weak is often relieved by Magnesia Phos. 6x.
When an otherwise normal person becomes cross, spiteful, snappy and generally hateful, give a dose of Chamomilla. This has been repeatedly verified in young children and infants, but it applies to adults as well.
A typical neurasthenic is often benefited by a course of Calcarea Carb.
When you have “ a cold in the head” that is better in the open air and worse indoors try Allium Cepa.
Where there is a yellow, acrid discharge from the eyes, Euphrasia may be the needed remedy.
