Tips and Secrets from the Masters. August 2014

Male Sepias

Male Sepias can be difficult to identify. The best word to describe the patient is “wimpy”, weak in spirit and confidence and masculinity. He can be difficult to differentiate from Staph, Pul, or Gelsemium. Often longs to give up his job and responsibilities.

Roger Morrison M.D. –Desktop Guide

Rhus in Carbuncle

In carbuncle, Rhus is indicated in the beginning, when the pains are intense and the affected parts are dark red. If given early, Rhus may abort the whole trouble. If not, you may have to resort later to Arsenicum, Carbo veg. or even Anthracinum.

E.A. Farrington M.D. – Clinical Materia Medica

Three Tips from Dr. W.A. Dewey

Rhus in Backache

A violent pain in the back, as if broken, is the greatest characteristic of Rhus in backache. It is more characteristic than the symptom “relief from motion,” for Rhus may be indicated where the patient is worse from motion.



This is one of the most important remedies in treating apoplexy when it occurs suddenly without prodroma. The patient falls suddenly into a comatose state out of which he cannot be aroused. Palpitation of heart, cold moist skin, convulsions of the muscles of the face are symptoms which should be present.


Hepar sulphur

Vilas states that it will cure more cases of keratitis than any other remedy. It is invaluable in the suppurative form. It speedily absorbs hypopyon, and abscesses of the cornea require no other remedy.
