More Tips and Secrets of Homeopathy from the masters.

Saving a Limb

When a limb has been partially crushed, it may sometimes be preserved by

cold applications, or by putting- ice upon it and by giving internally Arnica,

alternating sometimes with Aconite . This preservation is possible even when

mortification has already taken place, by giving first China, and afterwards,

when the skin begins to turn black, Lachesis. The surgeon alone can, however, judge what is best to be done.

Did You Know?

Hahnemann’s wonderful and thorough acquaintance with all branches of knowledge can, notwithstanding his natural gifts, be only accounted for when we learn from Hartmann that his health was such that he could work through every other night, and this he doubtless frequently did.  Besides his many translations of scientific works, we are indebted to his industry for the translation from the English of the History of Abelard and Heloise

Two Keynotes of Ferrum

Terebinthina in Hemorrhage

Terebinthina is one of our best anti-haemorrhagic remedies. Hematuria, hemoptysis, and haemorrhage from the bowels, especially in typhoid, and even in purpura haemorrhagica it may do splendid work. One of the chief characteristics for its use is the smooth glossy red tongue.


E. B. Nash, M. D.  Leaders In Homoeopathic Therapeutics



A healthy male adult excretes about two and a half pints of urine in twenty-four hours.  It is of a pale amber or straw color, remaining clear after standing, and precipitating no sediment, but having a peculiar ammoniacal smell. Red scanty urine denotes inflammation. Urine clear and abundant indicates nervous affections. Urine depositing a sediment indicates biliary derangement.

Urine turning milky soon after being emitted (especially in children), denotes the presence of worms in the intestines.

Homeopathy as Information

Homeopathic physicians need to understand that their remedies are not functioning at the traditional electric, magnetic dipole, atomic, molecular level of the body but, rather at the magnetic information wave level within the physical vacuum which interpenetrates all the atoms and molecules of the human body.

Distinguishing Scarlatina from Measles

The eruption in scarlet fever generally develops itself in from 24-48 hours, that of measles rarely sets in before the 3rd or 5th day. In Scarlatina there is also

an absence of catarrhal symptoms, as congh, sneezing, and watering eyes. The greatly accelerated pulse, heat of skin, and high temperature, also denote the approach of scarlatina.

Coccus cacti

The principal use of this 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. Coccus cacti when administered in the beginning cuts short the whole disease.

Some Remedies for the Spleen

Aconite : In inflammations of this organ the chief remedy is Aconite, which often arrests the disease in a short time, even if the patient vomits blood, or which at least modifies the disease so that Arnica will remove the rest. [Jahr.]

Ceanothus : Dr. Hale considers the spleen as the special seat of action of this drug. Dr. Burnett recommends it to be given whenever there is complaint of deep-seated pain in the side, even when no tenderness or enlargement of the spleen can be made out.

Arnica : Has proven a useful remedy following injuries; splenitis with typhoid tendency. Apathetic and does not consider himself very sick , vomiting of blood  pains in the spleen.

Arsenicum : Splenitis, acute or chronic,  induration of the spleen especially in malarial fevers. Diarrhoea, stools watery, bloody, undigested.

Bellis Perennis :  Region of spleen so swollen that the false ribs seem forced out.

Bryonia : Severe pain in the region of the spleen, increased by movement and especially by walking, but subsides when at rest. [Bayes.]

Capsicum — In chronic splenitis Capsicum generally proves one of the most efficient remedies, both if the spleen is simply very sensitive and likewise if it is swollen and indurated, particularly after fever and ague. [Jahr.]

Carbo  veg : Pressing pinching in the region of spleen; quick, lightning-like stitches; abdomen bloated. So weak can hardly walk. [Lilienthal.]

Nux moschata : Enlarged spleen, loose bowels; stitches in spleen, must bend double ; abdomen enormously distended ; dropsy.” [Lilienthal.]
