Workers Vow to Quit if Forced to Vaccinate

A survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation, revealed that 37% of unvaccinated workers say they will quit their jobs if forced to get vaccinated or take weekly Covid tests. If their employer mandates vaccines and doesn’t offer the testing option, 72% of the unvaccinated workers say they will quit.

Some Tips from Dr. E.A. Farrington

– In spasms of the eyelids Agaricus is generally the best remedy.

– Chamomilla may be employed in jaundice resulting from a fit of anger.

– Cerebral softening may be averted by Nux vomica.  This remedy is to be thought of when sedentary habits and mental effort have operated, as well as intemperance, to produce the disease. Phosphorus is the remedy which most frequently follows  Nux in this condition

– Magnesia phos. is called for in neuralgia which occurs regularly each night.

– Phosphorus is one of the few remedies that act on the pancreas. It is especially useful if there be fatty degeneration of that organ.

– Collinsonia is indicated in hemorrhoids when there is a sensation as of sticks in the rectum.

– Carduus marianus is indicated in jaundice with dull headache, bitter  taste in the mouth, tongue  white, especially in the middle with the tips and edges red.

– Nux may be given in that dread disease, atrophy of the retina, whether it come from choroido-retinitis or not.

– Opium is probably the best remedy when, from fright of the wet-nurse, the child gets retention of urine.

– Aloes cures a headache which, like that of Nux vomica, is situated over the  eyes.  It is attended by a sensation as though a weight were pressing the eyelids down.

Melilotus, produces a most violent headache which drives the patient almost frantic.  It really seems to the patient that the brain would burst through the fore-head.  The throbbing pain is almost as violent as it is under Glonoin.

Cell phone radiation during pregnancy affects brain of offspring

Exposure to radiation from cell phones during pregnancy affects the brain development of offspring, potentially leading to hyperactivity, say researchers at Yale School of Medicine.  The results, based on studies in mice, are published in the March 15 issue of Scientific Reports, a Nature publication. “This is the first experimental evidence that fetal exposure to radiofrequency radiation from cellular telephones does in fact affect adult behavior,” said senior author Dr. Hugh S. Taylor.

Vaccinated just as likely to spread delta variant within household as unvaccinated

People who have received COVID-19 vaccinations are able to spread the delta variant within their household despite being vaccinated a new study published in the Lancet Infectious Diseases journal. People who contracted COVID-19 had a similar viral load regardless of whether they had been vaccinated.

Some Tips from Dr. William H. Burt, M. D. (1895)

Kali Bromidum – This remedy is most valuable in those cases of epilepsy characterized by frequent and violent convulsive seizures.

Scoparius – Especially useful in functional cardiac diseases, where irregularity of the heart’s action is the most prominent symptom. It greatly increases the force of the cardiac beat, and regulates the heart’s action with greater rapidity than Digitalis

Silicea – Ciliary neuralgia has been often cured with Silicea.

Kreosotum – Constant chilliness during menstruation. The pains are always burning like red hot coals. Uterine cancer, with fetid, bloody, acrid, rapidly decomposing secretions.

Zincum – Great greediness when eating; cannot eat fast enough, from canine hunger.  A constant distressing boring pain in the left ovarian region, only partially relieved by pressure.
