Brain Inflammation From COVID-19 looks eerily similar to that from Alzheimer’s
The SARS-CoV-2 virus doesn’t just cause enduring damage to the lungs and the heart. A large number of patients who contract COVID-19 also report long-lasting neurological issues, including brain fog, memory loss, difficulty concentrating, hallucinations, headaches, and loss of smell or taste.

Syphilis on Rise
Sexually transmitted diseases are at an all-time high, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There were more than 2.5 million reported cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis in 2019. The sharpest increase was in cases of syphilis among newborns, which quadrupled between 2015 and 2019, the CDC said.

Some tips from E. A. Farrington, M.D.  – Clinical  Materia  Medica

Spigelia may be used in worms. It causes the following symptoms: Strabismus from abdominal irritation, jerking over the eyes, paleness of the face,  with blue rings around the eyes.  The patient feels faint and nauseated on awaking in the morning when there is hunger, which is relieved by breakfast.

Coccus cacti
The principal use of the drug is in whooping-cough with morning aggravation.   The child awakens in the morning, and is immediately seized with a paroxysm of whooping-cough, ending in vomiting of clear ropy mucus, hanging in great long strings from the mouth.  That is a symptom which you all should remember, for with this condition present Coccus cacti has, when administered in the beginning, cut short the whole disease.

Mygale lasiodora
The Mygale lasiodora is a large black spider, native in Cuba. It is  one  of our best remedies for uncomplicated cases of chorea.  The patient has constant twitching of the muscles of the face. The head is jerked to one side. An effort to talk is made, and words are jerked out.

Terebinthina, like Cantharis, has marked action on the kidneys, but it differs from that remedy, in that the urine is always dark, cloudy and smoky, from admixture of blood.  This is due to congestion of the kidneys.
