Two Tips from J. Compton Burnett MD

Cholesterinum in Tumour of Liver

I learned its use from the late Dr. Ameke, of Berlin, who claimed to have derived much advantage from its use in cancer of the liver. This is a weighty statement, and is true. I believe I have twice cured cancer of the liver with it. I commonly use the 3 X trit. in six-grain doses three times a  day, but this will here and there act very violently, and when this happened I have found the third centesimal trituration effective.

Hydrastis Tincture in Gallstone Colic

I have treated gallstones and gallstone colic many times and have found myself best in the painful attacks with Hydrastis Canadensis.  I have used as much as ten-drop doses of the tincture of Hydrastis, given every half-hour  in very warm water, and known it succeed in a few hours after everything had failed. After the attack it is best to set about curing the liver itself by a long course of homeopathically indicated remedies.

G.H.G . Jahr – Forty Years Practice


The belief that saturated fats are not healthy is based on the now debunked lipid theory of heart disease, which states that consumption of saturated fats leads to elevated levels of cholesterol, which leads to an increase in heart disease. Ancel Keyes was the original researcher to put forward this theory, which was later adopted by Congress as part of USDA dietary advice, and his research has been completely discredited. In fact, the science actually points to the opposite, that people with high levels of cholesterol actually live longer than those with low cholesterol.


Calendula is an excellent haemostatic in tooth extraction. It’s also useful when pain is out of all proportion to injury, due to nerve involvement (hyper).
