In 2009, the scientific publishing giant Elsevier was found to have invented an entire medical journal, complete with editorial board, in order to publish papers promoting the products of the pharmaceutical manufacturer Merck.

Some Tips from Dr. Pankaj Titar

Lessons from the Government Homoeopathic OPD of Mumbai:

Sometimes even after choosing the most accurate simillimum, one sees no improvement in Psoriasis and Eczema. In my experience, virgin and untouched cases of Psoriasis and Eczema respond well to homoeopathic treatment. The problem occurs when the patient has been previously treated with coal tar derivatives, steroids, anti- histamines and antibiotic.


Dr. H.C.Allen in his Key Notes recommends Bovista,  to handle bad effects of Coal Tar application.


Nux Vomica is our master’s choice to commence treatment when a patient arrives after heavy bombardment of modern medicine.


Many eczemas are a result of an antibiotic regimen. Carbo-veg and Mag phos are the best drugs for the bad effects of antibiotics.


Potentized Cortisone is a good drug for bad effects of steroidal preparations.


Always check if the patient has used the Beta blockers Atenolol and Propanolol, as these have psoriasis-like symptoms as side effects. Treat the hypertension but do not stop the anti-hypertensive medication .The medications should be tapered until the remedy affects a cure.

  • OK, wait a minute! A scientific publishing company invented a medical journal, that didn’t really exist, for the sole purpose of promoting products made by Merck? Am I the only person to think this is really bizarre? Aren’t other medical journals sufficiently promoting drugs made by Merck? What am I missing here? How can doctors read a journal that doesn’t really exist? Is this fake journal now going to come out monthly for the sole purpose of publishing fake articles that say how wonderful Merck products are? Or has its exposure doomed the operation? Does everyone know about this? Is Merck an outcast now? Or does no one care?

  • Beta Blockers, Atenolol and Propanolol have psoriasis-like side-effects? Good grief! What next?! Everyone’s on these things! These are the high blood pressure stand-bys and everyone’s got high blood pressure nowadays thanks to eating at McDonalds!
