UK – Funding for Homeopathy to stop

Health bosses at an NHS trust thought to be one of only three still providing homeopathy in England are to stop funding the treatment. The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence advises the NHS on the use of treatments and does not recommend homeopathy to treat any health conditions.

Police Power for CDC 

On August 15, 2016 in the U.S., the Center for Disease Control (CDC) published an 88 page set of proposed regulations, which would give them the power to apprehend, detain, and quarantine anyone they think might have a communicable disease and to force them to be vaccinated. That includes measles and other non-life threatening communicable diseases.

Five Tips from Dr. J.T. Kent

Teething – An important transition

Teething is a crisis, and the things that are within will come out at the time, just as there are troubles that are likely to come out at the time of puberty and at the climacteric period.

Whooping cough

Carbo veg. is one of the greatest medicines we have in the beginning of whooping cough. Its cough has all the gagging, vomiting and redness of the face found in whooping cough. It is one of our best medicines when the case is confused; when the cough indicates no remedy or when it remains in a partially developed state.

Aethusa Cynapium

Before Aethusa was known a certain class of cases of cholera infantum, and vomiting and diarrhea in children, all resulted fatally, because there was no remedy that looked like such serious cases. Death is stamped on the face from the beginning, and if there are any remedies in the book that save life, this is one of them. It applies to the cases that come on very suddenly in hot weather in infancy, with extreme prostration. Hippocratic face, there is a whitish-blue pallor around the lips, the eyes are sunken

Sulphur in Surgical Fever

Sulphur is suitable in surgical fever when it takes this form of flashes of heat and steaming sweat. In these deep-seated septic states, somewhere from beginning to end, Sulphur will most likely be wanted. You may see in the earlier stages of that septic state a number of Bryonia symptoms, but Bryonia cannot take hold of that case. Remember that in a septic state you want to get ahead of it in the first twenty-four hours; you do not want to let it run on, and if Bryonia has only mitigated it in its beginning, then it is too late for Sulphur.
Warning on Fistula in Ano

It is a dangerous thing to operate upon a fistula in ano. It is a very serious matter. If it is closed up, and that patient is leaning towards phthisis, he will develop phthisis; if he has a tendency towards Bright’s disease, that will hasten it; if he threatens to break down in any direction; his weakest parts will be affected and he will break down.

Academy of Pediatrics Corrupted by Pharma

Last month, the Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), in a report titled “Countering Vaccine Hesitancy,” called for the elimination of all non-medical exemptions to vaccinations. The report also stated that doctors should refuse to treat patients who refuse vaccines. The AAP has ties to vaccine manufacturers Merck, Pfizer, Sanofi Pasteur, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson and Novo Nordisk.

Strophanthus in Alcoholism 

Clinical experience has convinced Dr. A. P. Skworzow that the infusion of strophanthus is an excellent remedy for dipsomania.  Seven drops, thrice daily, speedily produce the desired result. No relapses or injurious after-effects have been observed.

Four Tips from Dr. E. B. Nash

Melilotus Alba

With Melilotuos, the congestion to the brain is equal to that of Belladonna and Glonoine and the most characteristic symptom of such congestion is intense redness of the face with throbbing carotids which is often ameliorated by a profuse epis taxis. Several years ago I cured a very bad case of mania of the religious form with the 6th potency. This lady had been given up by two allopaths, who said she must go to the asylum. On indication of the intensely red face I gave her Melilotus with a rapid and permanent cure.


Colchicum has great meteoristic distension of the abdomen.  In the 200th potency it is a good remedy for the bloating of cows that have eaten too much green clover.

Argentum n. in Hemicrania

Argentum nitricum is sometimes the best remedy for hemicrania . This kind of headache is often very distressing and hard to cure. One peculiar symptom belonging to Argentum nitricum in headache is a feeling of expansion. She feels as though her head were en6rmously enlarged.


Crotalus is the chief remedy in diphtheria when the profuse epistaxis occurs which marks many cases of a malignant type.

Monsanto herbicide found in organic food

According to a report by the Alliance for Natural Health USA, an independent laboratory found detectable levels of the Monsanto herbicide glyphosate in 10 out of 24 breakfast food items.  Some of the highest levels were detected in organic food products, including eggs labeled “organic, cage-free, antibiotic-free” ,organic bagels and bread. The World Health Organization has listed glyphosate as a possible carcinogen.



PA to make vaccines mandatory

In the U.S. the Pennsylvania legislature is considering a set of bills (SB 696, SB 797, HB 883) that would restrict the religious exemption to vaccination, mandate the meningitis vaccination for 7th and 12th grade students, and eliminate the personal belief exemption, respectively.


Bayer AG is working on a $66 billion takeover of Monsanto Co. Completion of the merger would leave three companies with more than 75 percent of the global market.  Bayer, which makes chemicals that poison bees, now combines with Monsanto, which makes chemicals that poison crops.



Three tips from Dr. A.L. Blackwood

Picric Acid

Picric Acid is indicated in myelitis, where there are tonic and clonic spasms with exhaustion. Chilliness is complained of so that they cannot get warm.

Phosphoric Acid

Phosphoric Acid is frequently the only remedy required in cases of phosphaturia, when the urine presents a white sediment, and also in the derangements of childhood when the urine presents a milky appearance.

White of Egg

Albumin in the form of the white of egg forms, with the salts of many metals, compounds that are either slowly soluble or insoluble in water. It is especially useful in poisoning by the mineral acids, corrosive alkalies, alcoholic solutions of the alkaloids, Iodine, Bromine, Chlorine and Mercury. The whites of four eggs to a quart of lukewarm water is about the proper proportion. It should be followed immediately by an emetic and later by a cathartic.

Four Tips from Dr. George Royal


Borax wakes at 3 A.M. and cannot sleep again for two hours on account of general heat, especially in the head with sweat on the thighs. An infant cries out, wakes from sleep and anxiously grasps its mother, as if he had been frightened by a dream.

Rhododendron vs Rhus

The Rhododendron patient’s pains are relieved when the storm breaks, while Rhus pains continue till the storm or rain is over.

Veratrum viride

The delirium of Veratrum viride is a most furious one and is found in many of the conditions cured by the drug. You will find it in bronchitis, pneumonia, nephritis and metritis, calling for Veratrum vir.

Natrum Salicylicum

Natrum salicylicum will cure periostial rheumatism when you have the parts hot, tender, swollen, red, pulse irregular from 40 to 120, weak and soft. Profuse sweat on exertion smells musty. The temperature varies, increasing and decreasing with the rheumatic pains.

Robert F. Kennedy vs Vaccines

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. warned that vaccines are causing a “holocaust” in the U.S. “They can put anything they want in that vaccine and they have no accountability for it. The government is having a dirty little affair with the drug industry.”

Editor’s  Note: The former head of the CDC, Julie Gerberding, is now the head of the Merck Vaccine Division.

Glyphosate Found in Vaccines

Researcher Anthony Samsel has found various vaccines contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate.  It turns out that many vaccines contain animal byproducts such as gelatin, bovine casein, bovine serum or chicken egg protein. The animals from which these products come from are fed grains sprayed with glyphosate.

Some Tips from Dr. W.A. Dewey


Spigelia is of more use than any other remedy for the sharp shooting and sticking pains accompanying glaucoma. They are worse at night and on motion.

Chamomilla in Abscess

Chamomilla is not a remedy to suggest itself in abscess, yet it has proved valuable in promoting the formation of pus in chronic abscesses where Hepar has failed to act promptly, and in making the pains more bearable.


Coccus is a useful remedy for the protracted bronchial catarrhs remaining after whooping-cough. The excessive secretion of mucus under Coccus is marked and causes the child to strangle.


Lycopodium is a very useful remedy for piles which do not mature, but remain as hard bluish lumps, and also for bleeding piles containing large quantities of blood.


Lachesis suits women who never get well from the change of life. It corresponds to many climacteric troubles. It is the remedy for women worn out by frequent pregnancies, with sudden cessation of the menses, flushings of heat and constriction about the heart.
