Homeopathic Covid Mini Repertory This was created using the experience of homeopaths worldwide who treated Covid patients. It was designed to facilitate choice between the five remedies most often found indicated in covid-19: Arsenicum album, Bryonia alba, Gelsemium sempervirens, Phosphorus and Pulsatilla. Here is the link:  COVID-19 (hpra.co.uk)


Some Tips from Dr. E.A. Farrington In carbuncle, another form of connective tissue inflammation, 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. Bromine is useful in ulcers which have a carrion-like odor, with threatening gangrene.  The surrounding skin has a greenish-yellow hue. You must also remember Staphisagria as a remedy in colic following operations about the abdomen. Sabadilla is useful in influenza.   There is violent spasmodic sneezing and lachrymation on going into the open air. Guaiacum is useful in chronic forms of rheumatism when the joints have become distorted by the concretions. In disorders of digestion Ignatia is useful when the patient complains of the presence of a bitter or sour-tasting mucus in the mouth and copious salivation. Lachesis is useful for weakness of digestion in patients who, from some vicious habits, from abuse of Mercury, or of Quinine, or of alcohol, have their stomachs  so exhausted that even the plainest food causes indigestion.  Acids especially  disagree. Psorinum, like Cinchona, is useful in some cases of night-sweats.  It is indicated when profuse sweats occur after acute illnesses.  The patient is very despondent, hopeless of recovery. Ranunculus bulbosus is useful in herpes zoster or zona.  Vesicles appear on the skin and are filled with serum, and burn. Sometimes these vesicles have a bluish-black appearance. In dropsy of the chest, Juglans cinerea is useful when there are red spots on the skin, looking very much like flea-bites In gout, Ledum is useful  when the pains are worse  from  the warmth of the bed; when  there is an oedematous condition of the feet;  when  Colchicum  has been abused, and the patient has become greatly  reduced in strength Aranea also attacks the bones.  It is especially indicated in disease of the os calcis, when the patient complains of violent, dull boring pain in that bone. This may be due to a simple periostitis, or it may be associated with caries.  Sometimes there is a sensation as if the bones felt like ice. Apis is useful in erysipelas, particularly of the face, when it commences under the right eye or about the eye, and spreads thence across the face to the left side, the parts quickly becoming oedematous, and at first assuming a pinkish rosy hue. Sulphur acts on the spine, producing several conditions there. It is useful in spinal  irritation.  On pressing between the vertebra,  you notice how  the  patient winces. 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. Platina is useful in cases of indurated and prolapsed uterus, associated with continual pressure in the groins and back. Parts are painfully sensitive to touch. Ptelea is useful in congestion of the liver when there is a feeling as of weight and pressure in the right hypochondrium. The liver is found to be enlarged. The patient finds relief by lying on the right side. Ammonium carb. is useful in dilatation of the heart.  The patient suffers when ascending a height, as when going up stairs or up a hill.  He also suffers intolerably in a warm room.

Prophylaxis for Covid in Cuba Cuba has one of the lowest covid mortality rates in the world. When the pandemic arrived the government distributed a remedy called  Prevengovir which consists of the following remedies: Anas berberiae 200, Baptisia tinctora 200, Bacillinum 30, Pyrogenum 200 Eupatorium perf 200, Influezinum 200,  Arsenicum Album 200


Pfizer Inc. Scandals Pfizer Inc., manufactured a covid vaccine that is about to be widely distributed. Pfizer Inc. pleaded guilty to a U.S. criminal charge relating to promotion of its now-withdrawn Bextra pain medicine and was fined $2.3 billion to settle allegations it improperly marketed 13 medicines. https://ca.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE5813XB20090902?fbclid=IwAR2ULXySoLuBypYy_FuHSj0w2TeSXGS9tMI1_6PI7ykO2AUX67RtJ8Mg5II and Pfizer settled a lawsuit for $75 million with Nigerian families whose children had been killed or injured in one of their drug trials. Pfizer hadn’t gotten permission from the families. Pfizer claimed the families had given consent, and produced a letter of permission from a Kano ethics committee. The letter turned out to have been backdated and the committee set up a year after the original medical trial. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/africa/pfizer-to-pay-16350m-after-deaths-of-nigerian-children-in-drug-trial-experiment-1663402.html

Dutch Advisory Panel Calls for Caution on 5G An advisory panel to the Health Council of the Netherlands is recommending a “cautious approach” to 5G radiation exposures.  The committee is also advising that the 26 GHz frequency band (millimeter waves) not be used “for as long as the potential health risks have not been investigated.” Louis Slesin, PhD – Microwave News – http://microwavenews.com


Dr Jayakumar M Pannakkal, BSc, BHMS,MD (Hom) Suspected growth in right lung This was a case of suspected malignancy of rt. lung. The 89 year old patient had chronic cough which was not relieved by a long course of allopathic treatment. He had undergone prostatectomy some 5 years before, due to Ca prostate. He was admitted to a hospital and had done CT Scan of lungs. The CT showed there was an irregular growth of 26x17mm in apical and posterior segment of rt upper lobe. They suggested biopsy. But his age was nearing 90, and due to this, his son didn’t agree to the procedure. I visited him in the hospital. He was apparently healthy but a patient of Alzheimer’s. The peculiar sound of his cough, rattling with hoarseness and roughness, and a somewhat empty sound like that of spongia, prompted me to give him Brominum.  I also gave him Carcino adenoma 200 4 doses. The cough ceased within days.  One month later, a CT was repeated, and there was no lesion. Dr Jayakumar M Pannakkal, BSc, BHMS,MD (Hom)


GM Salmon – U.S. CRules Against FDA San Francisco, Calif.—The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California ruled that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) violated core environmental laws in approving the genetically engineered salmon., violating the National Environmental Policy Act. The Court also ruled that FDA’s unilateral decision that genetically engineered salmon could have no possible effect on highly-endangered, wild Atlantic salmon was wrong, in violation of the Endangered Species Act. https://www.centerforfoodsafety.org/press-releases/6186/federal-court-declares-genetically-engineered-salmon-unlawful?fbclid=IwAR3Hh7gWPPHmo4eHcAp9JFJ6GPwAx6mb9uwBhyRWK9Y-4vEJE-TpxRDJFyY
