Opium – Three Tips from E.A. Farrigton

We may find Opium indicated in that very dangerous condition, strangulation of the bowels. There are violent colicky pains and vomiting of matters having a faecal odor.

Opium, like Bovista and Arnica, is useful for the bad effects of inhalation of charcoal vapors.

The power of Opium to cause shriveling of every fibre of the body suggests its use in marasmus in children. The patient is wrinkled and looks like a little dried-up old man. The characteristic Opium stupor is present.

Why we use totality of symptoms

The suppression of individual symptoms may be done quite as effectively by the use of homeopathic remedies, as by conventional drugs. Never forget, that to palliate a curable case is suppression.

Dr. Elizabeth Wright Hubbard- Homeopathy As Art and Science

Symptoms of importance

In Kent the schema is: Mentals, Physical Generals, Particulars (strange rare and peculiar) and Modalities.

In Boger’s method, fewer symptoms are used and stress is put on pathological generals. If the case presents several excoriating discharges, the rubric Dryness would be taken.

Homeopaths in West Africa

A small international team of experienced and heroic homeopaths have arrived in West Africa, and are currently on the ground working hard to examine patients, work out the “genus epidemicus,” and initiate clinical trials. This work is being done alongside the current conventional supportive measures and treatments already in place.

Reported in the NCH blog –

Cannabis Sativa

It is the remedy par excellence with which to begin the treatment of gonorrhoea, unless some other remedy is particularly indicated, and such cases are very few. The most characteristic symptom is that the urethra is very sensitive to touch or external pressure. The patient cannot walk with his legs close together because any pressure along the tract hurts him so.

Homeopathy Flourishing in Germany

New market data shows that over half the German population has used homeopathic medicines and that the number of users has gone up from 53% of the population in 2009 to 60% in 2014.

  • 73% of German women have used homeopathy and 48% of German men.
  • 95% of West Germans know of homeopathic medicines, and this number has increased from 76% in 1975.
  • 67% of users first decided to use homeopathy because of a recommendation from a friend or relative.

The main reason for choosing homeopathic medicines is the very low side incidence of effects. This data is the result of a survey by the Institut für Demoskopie Allensbach.

Cell Phone Warning

Mona Nilsson, chairman of the Swedish Radiation Protection Foundation reports that the number of Swedes who died of a brain tumor of an unknown nature rose by 157% between 2008 and 2013. Among those younger than 70, the increase was even “more pronounced”. Last spring, a French study found a higher rate of brain tumors among heavy users of cell phones, supporting similar indications from IARC’s Interphone study and the work of the Hardell group in Sweden.

Power-frequency magnetic fields can promote brain tumors, according to the largest epidemiological study of its kind ever undertaken. The study was published online May 2014 by the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.
