Tips and Secrets

Tips and Secrets December 2014


Homeopathy Tips from the masters and important news – December 2014.

Scottish Health Board is Compromised

A third health board in Scotland has voted to stop sending patients to the country’s only homeopathic hospital, the Centre for Integrative Care, formerly Glasgow Homoeopathic Hospital.  NHS Lanarkshire made the decision despite the results of a survey which showed that 88% of patients backed the service. The health board voted to cease new referrals after March 31st, 2015 on the basis of the “lack of clinical effectiveness evidence for homoeopathy”. 

(Ed. Note: When a regulatory body makes a decision against the will of the people, and against all the evidence, one can safely conclude that the board has been corrupted.)

Flu Vaccines Prove Useless or Dangerous

Italy Investigates Flu Vaccine

Italy’s drug regulator said it’s investigating the deaths of eleven people who took the Novartis flu vaccine this year.

Homeopathy for Infections

I have never seen a patient with a life-threatening infection not respond to the simillimum, regardless of the microorganism.  I can’t conceive of patients dying from acute infectious diseases while having at their bedside a physician who practices genuine homeopathy and God knows that I have seen some of the worse cases with infectious diseases.

Two Tips for Dogs from Dr. H.G. Wolff

Tetanus in Dogs – Prophylactically, Ledum 200x and Hypericum 200x

Once the illness has broken out, Magnesia phosphoric 6x or 12 x has shown itself the best remedy to use, even in advanced cases.

Okoubaka ( African Tree Bark)

Okouaka is useful for poisoning from insecticides, flea powder, mist from paints, rancid food, meat or sausage.  Also, acts to drain residual toxins following serious illness.

Pelvic injury may respond to Bellis Perennis.

Rhythm of Murmur

The easiest and surest way to decide the rhythm of a murmur is to place one finger over the heart, and feel its impulse while the murmur is heard through the

stethoscope.  If that is impracticable, the radial or carotid pulse (better the latter, because nearer the heart) will do, making the proper allowance.

Rhus Poisoning

About twenty-three years ago my attention was called to Sanguinaria as an antidote for Rhus poisoning.  Since that time I have never needed another remedy for uncomplicated rhus poisoning.

Three Tips from Dr. E.B. Nash

Cuprum metallicum

Mental and bodily exhaustion from over exertion of mind, or loss of sleep. This is similar to Cocculus and Nux vomica. The other symptoms must decide between them.

Helleborus in Dropsy

Helleborus is an excellent remedy in post-scarlatinal dropsies, which come on very rapidly. Here the coffee grounds sediment may or may not be present. The choice

is sometimes not easy between this remedy and Apis mellifica.

Causticum Face

Upon the face we have four prominent peculiar symptoms:

Yellowness of the face.  Sickly yellow (not jaundice).

Paralysis of a rheumatic or psoric origin.

Prosopalgia of the same origin.

Stiffness of the jaws; could not open the mouth.

Fainting From Vomiting

Veratrum is an important remedy in the severest forms of bilious vomiting, attended with distressing headache, and preceded or accompanied by copious discharges of pale urine.  Also when fainting is liable to occur from the violence of the attack.

Wifi Is All Around You

According to a recent study, the UK has one wi-fi hotspot for every 11 people.

In North America there will be one hotspot for every four people by 2018. Over the next four years, global hotspot numbers will grow to more than 340 million

WiFi  is so convenient…..but

Exposure to radiation from Wi-Fi and cellular phones can disrupt normal cellular development, especially fetal development. It can alter brain activity, provoke cardiac stress, reduce sperm motility, trigger insomnia, and increase the risk of tumor development.

Opposition Stiffening to Viagra

According to a 2014 study published in JAMA Internal Medicine, a publication of the American Medical Association, patients taking Viagra had an 84%  increase in their risk of developing melanoma.  In the JAMA Internal Medicine study, researchers used public health data collected over the course of 10 years from almost 26,000 men.
