Some Tips from Dr. J.T. Kent

“Radiating from a particular point,” is a distinguishing feature, and it puts Berberis almost alone for radiating pains. This is such a strong feature that Berberis, has cured renal colic in many instances because of its well known ability to shoot out in every direction.

A strange thing running through all the constitutional conditions of Ferrum is that the pains and sufferings come on during rest. The palpitation sometimes comes on during rest, the dyspnoea comes on during rest, and even the weakness. The patient is ameliorated by moving gently about, but any exertion tires and causes faintness.

We see that it is suitable in some brain diseases. In persons who have overworked, who have been working day and night to establish a business, or to keep it up, and when there has been constant use of the brain it is suitable

Veratrum Album

Mind: The mental symptoms are marked by violence and destructiveness he wants to destroy, to tear something; he tears the clothes from the body. Exalted state of religious frenzy, believes he is the risen Christ screams and screeches until he is blue in the face. Exhorts to repent, preaches, howls, sings obscene songs, exposes the person.

Some Tips from Dr. E.A. Farrington


In ovarian cysts, Apis is an excellent remedy to control the trouble, especially in the incipient stages. In addition to the burning and stinging pains, numbness down the thigh and  over the right side of the body, feeling of tightness across the chest, with cough. This is not a symptom of lung disease, but is reflex from the uterus.


Helonias, according to Dunham, produces profound melancholy, deep, undefined depression, with sensation of soreness and weight in the womb, ‘a consciousness of a womb.’  Helonias is an excellent remedy when there is a tired, aching feeling, and some burning in the back and legs.


When itch has been suppressed, Psorinum is an excellent remedy to redevelop it; usually, too, it will cure the disease after its redevelopment.  Psorinum is also useful when pustules or boils remain after itch has been cured by some other remedy.


Cinnabaris is an excellent remedy when there is a combination of syphilis and sycosis.  The figwarts are apt to be fan-shaped.   There is a great deal of itching, especially about the joints.


Pulsatilla is also an excellent remedy in small central corneal ulcers,with no vascular supply, especially when occurring in scrofulous subjects.

Glonoin in Trauma

Glonoin has been found an excellent remedy for pains and other abnormal sensations, following late after local injuries.  Long after the reception of an injury, the part pains or feels sore, or an old scar breaks out again; then Glonoin seems to relieve.
