OCCURRENCE Found on alkaline lake shores, in playa lakes and other evaporite deposits, borax is a soft and light, transparent crystalline substance of sweetish taste. Extensive borax deposits are found in California [Death Valley], Turkey, Tibet, and the Andes Mountains.  
 PROPERTIES The decahydrate - named borax or Jaikin - consists of hard odourless crystals, granules or crystalline powder. Due to giving up of the water of crystallisation to the atmosphere, it becomes coated with white powder in dry air. When heated it swells up, while at the same time losing

CLASSIFICATION Berberis belongs to the family Berberidaceae, a widespread family comprising 18 genera of trees, shrubs [mostly], and herbs, widespread in north temperate regions, South America, and mountainous regions in the tropics. The family is in homoeopathy represented by four members: Berberis vulgaris, Berberis aquifolium [= Mahonia aquifolia], Caulophyllum, and Podophyllum.  
 DISTRIBUTION The genus Berberis comprises about 500 species of deciduous and evergreen shrubs with yellow wood, spiny branches and simple leaves. The genus may be divided into two groups: the yellow-flowered Asiatic species and the orange-flowered South American species. Yellow, red or blue berries follow the flowers. Many species are cultivated as ornamentals, esp. as hedging

CLASSIFICATION Bellis, a genus of 7 species, is widely distributed throughout Europe and the Mediterranean. It comprises annual or perennial herbs with simple leaves, often borne in a basal rosette, and numerous small flowers in dense heads.  
 FEATURES The outer flowers [white] are the ray florets or rays; the inner ones [yellow] the disk florets. It flowers from the earliest days of spring till late in the autumn; it may even blossom under a thin layer of snow. It prefers nutritious, calcareous soils, with sufficient moisture during the winter and

apoplexy and homeopathy


Mrs. G. (page 62, case book T.) consulted me. She had great mental trouble three years previously, and since then she had not been well. She had had violent headache since childhood, but since the painful circumstances referred to, three years since, her sufferings have been intense. 
 Her principal suffering is in her head; she experiences - Symptom 1. A dreadful pressure on the head. 
 Symptom 2. Her eyes are suffused, and exhibit that peculiar appearance which is present in cerebral oppression. 
 Symptom 3. Her head is hot. 

Susan Savage, consulted me Feb. 11, , for a peculiar affection of the fore finger and thumb: she has a numbness in the fore finger and thumb directly any metal touches either: steel affects most, and the brighter the steel the worse is the sensation: bright steel causes the sensation to strike up the arm: so certain is the effect produced by metal, that she is obliged when using a needle to put on a finger stall: this has been the case about four months. If persevering in using any metal she feels tenderness at the thumb: in the morning the thumb is numb and painful, but these sensations are relieved by exercise. 
 Ordered rhus toxicodendron. 

Mary A. Hiff, (p. 668, case book 1998,) consulted me Dec. 17, 1998. 
 She had stuck by accident a needle under her nail: the pain produced was sharp shooting: the nail was surrounded with a hardened elevation covered with ichor. 
 Ordered hepar sulphuris, one globule every six hours, and the application of a poultice with drops of the first dilution of hepar sulphuris. 
 Dec. 21. - The hand is now much inflamed, swollen, and red; the glands under the arm-pit are swollen, and the pains in hand and at arm-pit are intense; the thumb has a livid tint.

 CLASSIFICATION The genus Asarum comprises 75 species of perennial herbs, distributed throughout northern temperate areas of the world. Along with 7 other genera, it belongs to the Aristolochiaceae, a family of mostly warm-temperate to tropical herbs, shrubs and lianas. 
 FEATURES Most of them are shade-loving plants, forming dense ground cover in summer, particularly in leafy soil underneath tall trees and shrubs. Dried or cooked with sugar, the aromatic rootstock makes a spicy substitute for Ginger. The shining dark-green [evergreen] leaves of A. europaeum are

Ferula assafoetida. Ferula foetida. Devil's Dung. Asafoetida. Narthex. N.O.  Umbelliferae.  
 CLASSIFICATION Ferula is one of the 428 genera of the Umbelliferae, the carrot and hemlock family. The family is widespread and consists almost exclusively of herbs. The genus Ferula comprises 172 species of perennial herbs with a substantial rootstock, much-divided leaves, and a compound umbel of yellow flowers. The genus is also known as Giant Fennel genus, a name given to it by Pliny, the Roman naturalist.  

This disease is often caused by excessive sugar intake and other dietary errors; it is frequently in remission as weight loss is accomplished and dietary changes become entrenched. The hormone insulin, produced by the beta-cells in the pancreas, facilitates the transference of sugar from the blood to the other tissues, especially to the muscles which need the valuable energy. In case of an overload with sugar through diet, the insulin production increases as well to accommodate the increased amount of sugar, while the insulin receptors on the target cells do not increase. The result is an increase in sugar and insulin that the body cannot utilize. 

 Excessive striving for power can also originate from a position of inferiority when one's present position in life cannot be tolerated, when there are feelings of humiliation and discontent. Ulcer formation more typically occurs in this group, as compared to the "more established" overachievers with heart complaints. 
 This group of gastric and duodenal ulcers shows two predominant types of patients with overambitiousness. Patients of the first group are marked by an urge to prove their personal worth in the struggle for recognition and tend to duodenal and gastric ulcers. Patients of the second group are hard-working people of lower socioeconomic standing who strive for a higher standard of

homeopathic ointment for acne


Calendula officinalis 
 The homeopathic antiseptic homeopathic ointment for acne
 The marigold that grows in our gardens is the primary homeopathic antiseptic, usually employed in the form of a mother tincture (M.T. ). A few drops in a little boiled water can be used to wash a wound or as a gargle for the throat, for example. It also used locally in the form of soap or ointment (at 4% strength) in cases of acne, for example, and as an eyewash to clean the eyes in cases of conjunctivitis. We can also give globules in the lower potencies (5 to 7 CH) in cases of wounds to the mouth, for example. Thanks to this remedy, homeopaths

In your studies of the old remedies you will remember the recommendation given for the Carbonate of Baryta, namely: "Scrofulosis: swelling and induration of the glands, especially the cervical glands, even after suppuration has set in." Of the Muriate, it is said to be the best remedy for "stone-like induration of the glands," and a "tendency to tonsillitis." This last recommendation has been verified by a great many practitioners who are enthusiastic in its praises, not only as a preventive, but as the best remedy in acute quinsy, which it is said to arrest in the forming stage, preventing suppuration. 

A married lady, 30 years of age mother of two children, was brought to me by her husband on December 4 1891, with pretty severe homeopathy for eczema that had been bad during the past eight months, and being specially bad in the bends of arms and on the face, and worst of all around the mouth; most distressing of an evening. Her lips are dry cracked, "for ever peeling." Patient's condition was so bad, her general state so debilitated, her appearance so old, worn, and weary, that I felt it to be imperative to better her blood life and pull her together, so to speak, before setting about a scientific cure of the case, so I put her on Lerico o for a

A woman, 26 years old: 
 homeopathy for eczema on the palms of her hands. The skin was suppurating and oozing with yellow discharge. The skin was wet, swollen and sensitive to touch. "My skin is getting worse, and now I am in a desperate situation. I cannot use my hands anymore," she said. She was sitting in front of me with her hands raised, palms facing outwards, which she then crossed, turning inwards, covering up her chest. She was wearing white gloves in order to avoid any contact between the fingers. "I don't know why I have got such terrible eczema. I think I have been chosen to suffer," she said.

This most recent seminar, of the many Herscu has given on Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), took place in Washington, DC on July 15-17, 1995. The seminar was well attended, with approx. 75 participants, a few of whom were attending for a second time having realised in their clinical practice the great

Hahnemann noted that sometimes, especially in chronic disease, the administration of the like remedy was followed by a sharp aggravation of the illness before amelioration began. 


 He made experiments to determine the optimal dose which would influence the patient beneficially without causing an aggravation. He prepared his remedies by succession in order to ensure an even distribution of the drug in the diluting medium, and to his surprise found that the remedies had an enhanced effect when given in minute quantities prepared in that way. It must be clearly understood that this only applies to remedies chosen for the patient as a whole, in the way just described. This does not mean that drugs used for their chemical, physiological or physical effects, as used in the ordinary way, are given in inadequate doses. When a patient is treated by

When an allopath is first confronted with Hahnemann's homoeoapthic Materia Medica Pura he cannot tell what to make of it.  It certainly is not literature.  It says little or nothing about the diseases which each remedy will cure; it offers no scientific theories to explain how the remedy acts; it simply presents the reader with a bare list of symptoms. For the allopathic standpoint this is at once ludicrous and contemptible. And if the reader's glance should first alight on one of those "funny" symptoms, which we know are of such enormous importance in prescribing-like the "imagines himself made of glass" of Thuja, for example-an explosion of merriment is very likely to arrest all further desire to explore the new domain. 
 But let us look a little closely at these symptom-lists of Hahnemann an se I we can discover something of their essential import. 
 Taking a broad view of the field we find, of all, that the symptoms are arranged in a definite order. This order is mainly anatomical, and, as result of this, it is possible to find all the symptoms of any drug which are related to any particular part of the body. 

Homoeopathy came to some of us by inheritance, some have acquired it by learning, while still others have drifted into it or had it thrust upon them. To all, however, it can have a living meaning only as it is loyally followed. If we would pluck its fruits, we must also be willing to climb the ladder, rung by rung, that will reach them. Now this ladder is the pursuit of pure science and it rungs are the hard facts of actual experience, barren of theory in its lower reaches, but affording the most glorious possibilities from the upper ones. Such higher realization are based upon work, work and yet more work, even if part of it seems needless, for there are dark shades as well as light ones to be filled out in every educational gain. 

Mr. R. K. Gupta of 25 had crop of acnes on face-as if, boils' eruption on whole of the face, upper chest and back of the shoulders.  Acnes were indurated, swollen, elevated which were very painful to touch while washing face.  He had recurring eruption of boils like acnes.  He was having this trouble for the last 8 years, Allopathic, Ayurvedic drugs made the case bad to worse.  Patient was very thin, slim with great atrophy of legs.  He was given the following best trio to cure this obstinate case of acnes.

Pharmacy
 Kali-m. Kali muriaticum. Potassium chloride. Chloride of Potassium. Kali chloratum. Not to be confounded with Chlorate of Potash, Kali chloricum. Trituration. Solution. Historical dose: Trituration and all potencies, third to thirtieth potency.
 History
 Kali-m. is to SchŸssler that we owe the introduction of this salt, Kali muriaticum into homeopathy. His account of it is this: "It is contained in nearly all the cells and in chemically related to fibrin. It will dissolve white or grayish-white secretions of the mucous membrane and plastic exudations." This gives the indication for Kali muriaticum in Catarrhs in croupous and diphtheria exudations and in the second stage of inflammation of serous membranes when the exudation is plastic.

Homoeopathy was introduced into Santiago the Cuba in the year 1845 by Dr. Joaquin Bramon, who came from Barcelona, Spain. He remained in full practice until 1847. homeopathy schools
 About this time Dr. Manuel A. Aranda, an eminent surgeon of this city, turned his attention to the homoeopathic system, studied it thoroughly, and practiced it faithfully whenever medical attendance was required in his almost exclusively surgical practice. He continued an ardent disciple of homoeopathy until his death, which took place in 1870. 
 Dr. Bramon returned in 1849, and at the same period Dr. Cayetano Cruxent came from Porto Rico. Both parties succeeded in establishing excellent practices; but they left for Spain in 1853, leaving as successor Dr. martin A. Cabanellas, who labored here until 1864. 

Were I to restrict myself stringently to the enumeration of the existing means for the education of young physicians in the science and practice of homoeopathy, my whole paper would occupy but very few lines; but I hope I may be pardoned if I venture to trace very briefly some of the means to which the present practitioners of homoeopathy in Great Britain and Ireland are indebted for their practical knowledge of homoeopathy. 
 As early as the years 1852-3, whilst the homoeopathic hospital was in Golden Square, Dr. Quin gave six lectures on "Some of the Most Important Diseases of the Human Frame", illustrating them with cases selected from the wards of the hospital. During the succeeding years, 1853-4, Dr. Leadam gave a course of lectures on the diseases of women. 

Lupus is preëminently a disease of the lower classes; it occurs more frequently in some parts of the country than in others, but it attacks individuals indiscriminately any where, without distinction of sex. Lupus has not yet been known to occur previous to the tenth and after the fortieth year; it is most frequently seen between the tenth and twentieth years of age. It is said to result from scrofulosis and congenital syphilis; this, however, is problematical, the more so since homeopathy lupus likewise attacks persons of sound health and vigorous constitutions. It is never infectious.
