1. Zu Hahnemanns "Fragments de viribus medicamentorum" (HAHNEMANN's
"Fragmenta de viribus medicamentor”)
KLUNKER W. (ZKH, 39, 1 & 211995)
In 1796 HAHNEANN published to the world his discovery of the principle of Homoeopathy as
a scientific therapeutic art through his essay "A New Principle for Finding the Healing Powers of
Medicinal Substances" This was followed in 1805 by the "Fragmenda de viribus medicamentorum"
which was the forerunner of the: Pure Materia Medica.
The "Fragmenta" was in Latin. The Materia Medica part of the "Fragmenta" was Included in
the Pure Materia Medica, however, the "Preface" to the "Fragmentawas never translated from the
German. For the first time now the Preface has been translated from the Latin into German, and
presented in this article. This Preface clearly states that it is essential to know the pure action of
medicinal substances apriori. This translation will ensure that it will not be lost for posterity. (An
English translation from the German will be given separately, in the QHD. it is also interesting that Dr.
Josef SCHMIDT also has done similar service to Homoeopathy by translating the Preface to the
"Fragments" which has been published in the A HZ, 2.40,3/1995. = KSS)
2. SWEDENBORG und KENT - Uber den Einfluss von Emanuel SWEDENBORG auf die
homoopathische Philosophie des James Tyler KENT (SWEDENBORG and KENT - On the
influence of SVJEDENBORG over James Tyler KENT's homoeopathic Philosophy)
Van GALEN E. (ZKH. 39, 1/1995)
Several American Homoeopaths, C. HERING and J.T. KENT, prominent among them, were
members of the "New Church" based on the theories of the Swedish philosopher, scholar and mystic
Emanuei SWEDENBORG (1688 -1772). Classical Homoeopathy as it is known today is based on the
teachings of such stalwarts like - HERING and KENT. How much of the 'classical' is Homoeopathy as
it is known today is based on the teachings of such stalwarts like HERING and KENT. How much of
the ‘classical’ is 'hahnemannian'? Surprisingly very little is-known about the influence of
SWEDENBORG's theories on the development of Homoeopathy in the USA and consequently the
'classical' Homoeopathy as known today, A study reveals that in the case of KENT at least the
influence of SWEDENBORG was great.
A very interesting study, (Please also refer to Dr. G.S HEHR's 'Was Kent a Hahnemannian?' in
the BHJ Vol. 73, 2/1984, pp. 71-74 = KSS)
3. Die Wiederkehr des Verdrangten in Homoopathie and Psychoanalyse (The Return of the
Suppressed in Homoeopathy and Psychoanalysis)
APPELL R. (A HZ, 240, 2/1995)
The return of the suppressed according to HEHING's Law and the Rules of Transference
Neurosis are essentials of the healing process in Homoeopathy Psychoanalysis. Not only patient but
also Homoeopathy as well as Psycho-analysis itself suffer from unresolved reminiscences and
suppressed memories which do not fit with the ideals of science. Instead of denying these memory
traces, they should be realized and integrated as enrichment of the therapeutic arsenal.

4. How Freud's Arsenicum Pathology was Instrumental in, his Founding of Psychoanalysis
ZAFIRIOU Vangelis (EJH, 1, 1/1995)
This is a very interesting study of Sigmund FREUD's pathology and its influence on FREUD's
theory of Psychoanalysis. With the help of the rubrics in KENT's repertory the psycho-pathology of
FREUD is juxtaposed with the Arsenicum pathology. The study also points out that one's pathology
shapes one's destiny or even genius, In the case of FREUD the main aspects of his Psycho-analysis
theory, structure and practice and his own pathology are similar to Arsenicum. The author also
concludes that true understanding of the real dimensions of psychoanalysis can only be reached
using the tools provided to us by Homoeopathy.
5. Homoeopathy: Art or Science?
VITHOULKAS G. (EJH, 1, 1/1995)
The European Journal of Classical Homoeopathy (EJH) has begun a section titled
'Crossfire'. This section is to "criticise the theories and practical procedures which emerge from the
approach of various people connected with the development of homoeopathic knowledge. It will prove
to be a platform for well-disposed critical comments, even though sometimes these may take an
extreme or provocative form."
In this very first issue of the journal the teachings of Dr. Rajan SANKARAN reflected in his
books The Spirit of Homoeopathy and The Substance of Homoeopathy are taken up. The
criticism is quite strong. VITHOULKAS argues that carrying the 'art' too far in practice and more so in
teaching would lead to bitter disappointment. In the subsequent numbers of the EJH we see readers'
arguments in favour of and against. Although the Editor has said in the beginning that the criticisms
may take a 'provocative' form, such harsh criticism may lead to avoidable bitterness. We see very
Interesting arguments from the readers in the remaining numbers of the EJH.
6. Dreams in Homoeopathy -A Snake in the Grass.
MORTELMANS Guido (HL, 8,1/1995)
In the recent times we have come across 'dream provings' viz. a remedy is "proved" with
reference to its dreams only. Dreams are considered a part of the 'Mind' in this sense (the complete
Repertory Vol. I MIND contains Dreams).
While there are as many dreams as there are dreamers, dream of snake has been
considered with particular attention -perhaps because we have many snake remedies. One cannot
otherwise say as to why the snake dream is given so much importance.
In this interesting article the author discusses: The Doctrine of Signatures, the frequency and
content of dreams, the symbolism of dreams, Dreams in the Repertory, the use of dreams in finding
the remedy. A long and interesting list of 'references' is also appended.

SHUKLA Chetna (NJH, 4, 111995)
© Centre For Excellence In Homeopathy 5
26 year-old woman, married, with foul-smelling leucorrhoea worse after coition and after
micturition; burning urination, eruptions in the pubic region. Irregular and delayed menses. Her case
looked like PIatina and Pulsatilla. She liked flowers particularly red rose; dreamt of rose gardens and
lying amongst roses daily and enjoyed Gulkhand. Remedy was prepared from fresh red rose petals
and given in the 30 potency and she made a total cure.
The author has made a 'proving' of the Red Rose in the 30 potency with 8 provers. .
4. "Held by a Finger"
MANKANI Meena (NJH, 4, 211995)
The author says "I have gathered an understanding of Silicea out of treating 13 cases of
"anxiety neurosis" wherein Silicea was clearly indicated. The age group of all these patients was
between 19 and 37 years ...There was a common pattern as to the predisposition and the aggravating
factors ...one rubric seemed to be central to the understanding of Silicea in these patients and that is -
Dreams, held by finger, being."
5. The Tricky Python
SHUKLA Chetna (NJH, 4, 211995)
A new remedy "Python" prepared from the excreta of Python, was used for treating the
backache in a woman. The basis was: the patient enjoyed reading Egyptian stories revolving around
the stories of the Pharaohs, the queens and their ceremonies, slaves to work; she loved to be an
Egyptian or Roman Queen with all the riches, slaves working for her. Sometimes she dreamt of an
Ichchadhari snake which can change its form whenever desired, or huge big snakes like Pythons; of
water, travelling, of landscapes, rivers. Often dreamt of snakes coming to sting her daughter but she
always saved the child.
Encyclopaedia of Mythology and the World Book Encyclopaedia confirmed that the patient
was mystically involved in the stories of Roman Egvotian mythologies as the serpent Python and
Hence remedy prepared to 30 potency from the excreta of Python relieved the patient's
ailment. The author says that a short proving also was done which confirmed the symptoms. The
author has also used rabbit's urine in one case successfully!
6. Ekzem - Natrium carbonicum (Eczema - Natrum carbonicum)
FORESTER G. (ZKH, 39, 1/1995)
A chronic Eczema was cured with Natrum carbonicum. The peculiar localisation of the
eczema: finger tips and below the nails was thus verified ("Blistered spots on all the toes and finger-
tips, as if scalded, enclosing the nails all round, as if the nails would be taken off by suppuration."

7. Aconit is nicht nur ein akutes Mittel (Aconite is not only an acute Medicine)
KELLER G.v. (ZKH, 39, 1/1995)
Aconite is not only a remedy for acute fevers. According to HAHNEMANN it can be used in
chronic diseases as well. (See Introduction to the remedy in the Materia Medica Pura) The author
relates a case of spasmodic neuralgia of the face.

(Natrum sulfuratum - Part 1: A Proving (CROSERIO) from HAHNEMANN's legacy. Part 2:
Three further Provings from HAHNEMANN's legacy)
KLUNKER W. (ZKH 39, 2&4/1995).
Natrum sulfuratum (Na2S) was introduced 150 years ago into Homoeopathy but the remedy
has not been dealt with in any of the extant Materia Medicas - JAHR, HERING, HUGHES-DAKE,
© Centre For Excellence In Homeopathy 6
in T.F. ALLEN's Encyclopaedia only a poisoning is mentioned.
CROSERIO of Paris proved the remedy which was published in the Archiv fur die
homoopathische Heilkunst" (translated into German from the French), in 1838. This material was
brought to the knowledge of the homoeopathic world by Dr. Pierre SCHMIDT in the LlGA Congress in
1931, but it has continued to lie suppressed. Dr. KLUNKER has now, for the first time perhaps, made
German translation from the original hand-written manuscript found among HAHNEMANN papers
collected by Richard HAEHL. Three later Provings have also been taken up and published. (English
translation of these would be published in the OHD as early as possible = KSS)
9. Arzneiprufung von Cyclosporinum (Drug proving of Cyclosporinum)
B.O., SELMER H., TVEITEN D. (A HZ, 240, 1/1995)
Cyclosporinum represents a major medical advancement in immuno-suppression and organ
transplantation through suppression of the "helper T -cells" (CD4). The Norwegian Academy for
Natural Medicine did in 1991-1993 a proving of Cyclosporinum D 12- 200. The main characteristics of
the remedy are weakness, coldness, dyspnoea and weakness, dryness and symptoms from the
digestive and urinary systems. The remedy will be clinically tested by a group of experienced
homoeopaths during 1994 for immunological properties.
10. Ein Dulcamara-Fall. (A Dulcamara Case)
BRAUN A. (A HZ, 240, 1 & 2/1995)
The Solanaceae Dulcamara, 'Bitter-sweet', was praised as a remedy against the bad effects
of cold, especially wet-cold long before HAHNEMANN. Inability to accommodate oneself to a sharp
fall in temperature is found mostly among allergic persons; in old age it occurs much more. K. ST
AUFFER has this in consideration when he says "where Aconite is prescribed in strong, young
persons, Dulcamara is for older persons with reduced power of resistance". According to Otto
LEESER it is similarity of steroid alkaloids with cholesterine by which the latter is removed from the
borders of 'Cell in Dulcamara which makes the entrance of other substances, for instance allergic
substances, easier; up to now provings showed a certain miss of psychical symptoms, different from
most of the other Solanaceae. Main effects: arthralgic-neuralgic symptoms, urinary system, skin and
mucous membranes.
A case is presented from which the importance of initial symptoms of the skin in Dulcamara
becomes evident.
11. Einsatz von Einzelmitteln an der Kurklinik Benediktusquelle vom 1.02.91 bis 20.09.92 (Use of
single remedies in the Rehabilitation Clinic Benediktsquelle from 1.2.1991 to 20.9.1992)
ZEEDEN H. (A HZ, 240, 1/1995)
The possibility of applying homoeopathic single remedies (including complex medicines,
organ-derived remedies and Nosodes) in a Clinic for rehabilitation are reported and discussed. The
results show that in more than 50% good results can be obtained. The limiting factors are also
12. BACH - Bluten und Homoopathie (BACH Flowers and Homoeopathy)
FRANZ A. (A HZ, 240, 1/1995)
Edward BACH, an English bacteriologist and homoeopathic physician (1886-1936), began his
career with investigation of the bowel bacteria. He was the first to develop a method of microbiological
therapy. With application of the homoeopathic potentizing technique, the Bach-Paterson Nosodes - in
use until today -is derived. Subsequently he used these remedies exclusively according to the mental
symptom picture of the patient.
Later on, BACH turned away from the bowel bacteriae - not at least for aesthetic reasons -
and looked about for plants with similar healing powers. He found them in the course of his daily walk
through the English and Welsh landscape. Inspired by the early morning dew on the flowering plants,
© Centre For Excellence In Homeopathy 7
he developed his own potentizing method of the blossoms using spring water and sunlight -a further
application of the three alchemistic principles Sulphur, Mercurius and Sal.
Primarily used by medical amateurs and in esoteric circles, the Bach flowers were considered
only very little until now. While employing these remedies, the homoeopathic rules are applicable
including the Hering's Law. Therefore homoeopaths must, in the opinion of the author, study this
wonderful healing method thoroughly.
13. Medorrhinum
MASTER Farokh J. (HH,20, 1/1995)
This is a brief essay on Medorrhinum, high-lighting only the important features.
14. Comparative Study of Ignatia, Natrum muriaticum and Staphysagria
PANCHAL Priya (HH, 20,1/1995)
Useful study of the 'differential' of Ignatia, Natrum muriaticum and Staphysagria .
15. All that Yields Is Not Pulsatilla
WEINSTEIN Corey (HH, 20,2/1995)
While Pulsatilla is the first choice for 'yielding' patients, it is not correct to imagine that there
are no other remedies equally called for in this characteristic. The differential between Anacardium,
Alumina, Calcarea carbonica, Causticum, Ignatia, Sepia, Silica, Pulsatilla are highlighted.
16. Franciscea uniflora
MMS H.P.J.A. (HH, 20,3/1995)
Franciscea uniflora is an unproved drug. Information in the BOERICKE Materia Medica is
only few lines. However, this remedy has been found to be of great use in certain Arthritis cases,
Bechterew's disease. The author has narrated case from practice. (See OHD V, 3/1988 for more
information on this remedy)

19. Anhalonium
VITHOULKAS G. (EJH, 1,1/1995)
The European Journal of Classical Homoeopathy is a new journal to join the distinguished
journals in Homoeopathy. The journal is edited by George VITHOULKAS whose name is quite well-
known. In this, the first number of the journal Anhalonium also known as Anhalonium lewinii,
Lophophora williamsii, Mescaline, Mescal buttons, Peyote, Peyotl, Pellote - is studied.
The homoeopathic clinical picture of the remedy as described by VITHOULKAS beyond its
singular sociological and historical interest, presents a rich and interesting source of symptomatology
which apart from anything else may eventually cause it to be prescribed more frequently. Only the
remedy's 'essential features' is published. Complete clinical picture may be found in Volume II of
'Materia Medica Viva' of VITHOULKAS.

20. Using the Bowel Nosodes
LAING Richard (BHJ, 84, 111995)
The Bowel Nosodes are very under-used remedies; one comes across very few cases
reported in the journals. Only the British Homoeopathic Journal and among the Indian journals the
Medicina Futura Homoeopathy write on these valuable Nosodes.
In this article the author reports cases treated with Morgan Pure, Morgan Gaertner, Gaertner,
Sycotic Co., Dysentery Co., Bacillus f'Jo.7. In almost all cases the 6 potency has been used b.d. until
Dr. LAING quotes from John PATERSON: John PA TERSON apparently used the nosode
related to the patient's constitutional homoeopathic medicine, giving it as 3c-6c, 2 or 3 times a day.
This was said to make the dying process in terminal cancer cases, gradual and peaceful. A
suggestion worth pursuing.
Much interesting material in this article.
21. The other Natrum salts
HOLLAND Lee (BHJ, 84, 111995)
This is a very interesting study of comparative Materia Medica of five Natrums -Natrum
sulphuricum, Natrum muriaticum, Natrum carbonicum, Natrum phosphoricum and Natrum
arsenicosum. The Key-notes of the remedies are mentioned. There is also a Table comparing all the
five Natrums, with reference to the Generalities, Food desires and aversions, Constitution.
22. Anac, Anac, Who's There? A Study of Anacardium
WOLF, Carol "Me!" (JAIH, 88, 111995)
In this very helpful treatise, Dr.WOLF describes some of his experiences with Anacardium in
the treatment of behavior disorders in children, typically children who have been the subject of
parental abuse or neglect. Central characteristics consist of the following: callousness, violence,
cruelty, intimidation, evil, behavioral aggravation from sweets, cursing rages (oft directed at the
parents), low self-esteem, bravado, lack of conscience and empathy, religious mania or denial of God,
and aversion to school work. Contrary to the well-known memory deficits typical of this remedy,
Dr.WOLF has discovered that many Anacardium children possess a keen memory, which is
frequently employed in quarrels with their parents.
23. Millefolium: A Little Known Bruise
WOOD Matthew (HT, 15, 111995)
Achillea Millefolium a remedy known to Homoeopathy since its early days has been rarely used.
The author says that this remedy is very good for bruises with cuts. This remedy is mentioned by
HOMER for its use in battle wounds. The Roman legions called it Herba militaris. Arnica and
Millefolium are compared and the author concludes that for bruises with bleeding Millefolium pack
(external) is great.
24. Confirmatory Symptoms and Keynotes MALERBA Larry (HT, 15, 2/1995)
This small case is very interesting for the insight it gives in the curative range of the
homoeopathic remedy Borax.
A two-week-old male baby suffered from a broken left clavicle due to difficult labor. The child
was irritable, slept increasingly longer .hours only to become more irritable after waking up; rashy,
pimply face; white coating of the tongue; suddenly refusing to nurse, especially the left breast. It was
also noticed that the child would start and his arm would fly up during the descent of the swing. Borax
30 calmed the child immediately as also the knee bending. He nursed easily and was not startled by
noises. The remedy was repeated two weeks later and the rash on his face became stronger. He had
also developed full use of his left arm!

A very interesting case.
25. Aristolochia anecdotes
SHELTON Susanna (HT, 15, 2/1995)
The author cites two cases in which the near-miraculous speed with which Aristolochia
clematitis 30 healed friction blisters. The relief was overnight! For more information on this remedy
read Edward C. WHITMONT's article in his book Psyche and Substance.
26. Two Bromium Cases
JANSEN Jean Pierre (HL, 8, 1/1995)
Two cases -Boy, 16 years age, Girl, 11 years age -are reported to highlight the mental
symptoms that were common to both and the remedy was Bromium. A strong mental symptom
common to both was Fear of being alone in the evening. The first case was a Mononucleosis and the
second Hayfever.
27. Etude du Mental de Bryonia alba (Study of the Mental of Bryonia alba)
ALAERTS Jean (RBH, 47, 1/1995)
This is an interesting study of the 'mind' of Bryonia: The longing to return home. (Delusions
that he is away from home: that he is in a strange land; Attempts to escape; Talks of home; Desire to
go home). The delusion that he is under the control of strangers. Themes of work, business. Fear of
poverty (Suspicious; Avarice; Envy; Kleptomania, etc.) Fear of being poisoned. Anger, irritable,
vexation. Delusion of being injured. Fear of suffering (Anxiety about health; Fear of death; Fear of
impending disease; Fear of insanity; Despair of recovery, etc.) Desire to be quiet; Averse to being
disturbed; Desire to be quiet; Aversion to company;
The author uses the SEHGAL method of interpretation of the symptoms in this connection.
28. Du rire aux remedies en Homeopathie (Laughter in the homoeopathic remedies)
RODEGEM R. (RBH, 47,1/1995)
Laughter js a non-verbal message. In this interesting article the physiology of laughter
(vocalisation), the laughter rubrics in the repertory, the miasmatic gradation of laughter, the
denominations (exhilaration, smile, gay, gaiety, mirthful etc.), the qualifications (idiotic, imbecile,
sardonic, etc.), the modalities, the alternations, the detailed rubrics in the repertory I etc. are all
discussed. The article shows the detailed and thorough study 'of one action occurring under different
moods, circumstances, variations, and the remedies that are relevant.
29. Veratrum album -A Travers quelques cas (Veratrum album -some cases)
SOUK-ALOUN P. (RBH, 47,1/1995)
Five cases are reported to show the range of action of this remedy.
1. Asthma
KOTHARI Manu (NJH, 4, 1/1995)
This is one more article from the author who has cleared many wrong notions. He quotes
from CECIL's Textbook of Medicine "The currently accepted definition does not specify a cause or
causes, identify unique clinical or pathologic features or mention immunologic mechanisms. It does
describe, however, the fundamental abnormality that is common to all asthmatic patients -reversible
hyper-responsiveness of tracheo-bronchial smooth muscle". So, that is asthma! He gives one more
quotation from The American Thoracic Society's definition of Asthma "a disease characterized by an
increased responsiveness of the trachea and bronchi to various stimuli, and manifested widespread
narrowing of airways that changes in severity either spontaneously or as a result of treatment".

and Kali carbonicum in the other. While the environment in which the patient lived -which indeed was
the cause of the Neurosis -remained unchanged; the patient was able to cope up with the
environmental stresses after taking the homoeopathic remedy.

thread and does not get dissolved in water when washed. The stool and mucous are passed without
pain, and least flatus. The sudden urge for stool which kept him in constant tension was the worst.

pass urine. He has already been treated by many doctors. All tests have shown everything as normal.
He was a mason and suffered from Asthma, worse summer. His Asthma began when he
started training as mason. As 8-year-old his tonsils were removed. Appendix surgery. Kidney stone
crushed. Thorough repertorization pointed to Kali bichromicum, confirmed by careful reference to the
Materia Medica. The remedy was given in LM 18, once daily three drops. Progressive improvement.
He remained well (free from the Diarrhoea and much better Asthma) until two years later when he
died of a heart attack.
Symptoms cured and ameliorated:
-Intense. frequent and sudden urge for stool with spurting diarrhoea, mucous stool, worse in
Autumn and Winter.
-Involuntary passage of thin mucous from the anus.
-Passage of tenacious, thick, .stringy mucus from the anus, or passing thick mucus without
-Summer-Asthma with waking up between 4 and 5 hours night with wheezing, dyspnoea,
yawning, and better from bending forward.
Tenacious expectaration.

79. Eine Rauchvergiftung (A Smoke -poisoning)
SCHWARZ Erik (ACD, 4, 1/1995)
The patient. a man, had inhaled smouldering cable smoke and was thus poisoned. Was admitted
to the hospital where they opined that his brain had been starved of oxygen for a long time and gave
no hopes. The brain was not capable of function. The poisoning was in June 1979. The brother and
wife of the patient were advised to put him in a nursing home. They however wanted to avoid it.
The patient was like a child, said the brother. In the mornings he comprehended very slowly
but later in the afternoon onwards nothing. On 15 November 1979 he was brought to the clinic: He
appeared indifferent and stupid. He reacted very slowly to the questions. He sat on the chair and went
on shaking his legs and grinning. He had no interest in the TV. In the morning and forenoon he was
very pedantic and trifles disturbed him. Since the smoke poisoning he could not read.
With the scanty symptoms obtained after much effort, the following were taken for
Restlessness, legs, while sitting; conscientious about trifles
With these two symptoms Lycopodium and Rhus toxicodendron
So further differentiation from the following rubrics:
Smoke aggravates
Ailments, from Carbon monoxide
Since these were not confirmative of any remedy –
Smoke agg. Smoke intoxication indicated Lycopodium.
Lycopodium LM 12 b.d. 5 drops on 27 November. He was again seen on 8 January 1980.
The patient could not be recognised. He showed interest and could converse. He continued with the
medicine which was subsequently once a day, etc. His vision to read was only slightly improved, and
therefore could not continue his job. But he attended to all household work, purchases etc. In Summer
1992: he reported well in every way.
80. An Exceptional Case of Anencephaly VITHOULKAS G. (EJH, l' 1/1995)
A three-year-old girl born with almost half of the brain missing and the other half damaged.
CT Scan report in October 1993 showed (1) left cerebral hemiatrophy with temporal lobe aplasia, (2)
Parencephalous right basitemporal region with atrophic right temporal lobe. The child suffered from
frequent epileptic convulsions, totally paralysed, could not stand or sit and her head was falling to one
side; she had no contact whatever, no speech and did not respond to voices, a total vegetable.
Convulsive involuntary movements of the eyes with divergent strabismus of the right eye.
Agaricus muscarius 30 in repeated doses was prescribed and the child began to improve.
She has been progressing steadily. In the subsequent issues of the EJH the steady improvement is
being reported. She is yet to be fully cured. A remarkable case indeed.

improvement. Stramonium should not only be seen as aggressive but also as sensitive, romantic, and
vulnerable, in the sense that it can be easily hurt. It also writes gloomy, melancholic poems.
Case 2: 19-year-old girl, student; intense irritability and tremendous sensitivity to cold;
Irritable and tense; when tense wants to bite something, hit something hard, when she feels
misunderstood she wants to throw things; strong sense of insecurity; strong dysmenorrhoea,
constipation or diarrhoea, and high sensitivity to noises. Fear of getting lost, no sense of space or
sense of balance. Affectionate, sentimental, effusive and of a mild character. Very anxious about her
health. Cannot be alone.
Arsenicum album M helped her. Three years later she was given Stramonium 30 because her
irritability had not abated to a great extent and she was still complaining about it. This did not help. A
fresh evaluation was made of the whole case and given Anacardium 30. Between the 6th and the
15th day after taking the medicine she had a tremend
nervous crisis, a fit of wild fury and
hyperactivity. Since then she has been much better. She had a small eruption of eczema on her hand.
Irritability ameliorated. Has been much better. An interesting brief discussion follows.

90. Clairvoyance and its Treatment
ROY Sosi (QHQ,3,1/1995)
The author appears to have confused clairvoyance with delusion. He narrates two cases in
which Lachesis improved the mental ilfness.
91. After-pains from Herpes Zoster
PIETERS G. (QHQ, 3, 1/1995)
Neuralgic pains from Herpes Zoster which was not relieved by allopathic medicines (which

the Hypertension.
94. A Child with Grandmal Epilepsy
VIJAYKAR Praful (IJHM, 30,1/1995)
A four-year-old girl with Grandmal Epilepsy. The first attack came on when she was in the
ICU with Neonatal Jaundice; another attack at 11 months and since then on Tegretol and Sodium
Valporate. EEG revealed the presence of intermittent bilateral hyper-excitability; right more than the
left. CT Scan showed flaring of Atria of lateral ventricles with heterotropic congestion. She suffered
from recurrent colds, coughs, especially when she is tired after physical exertion and during cold, wet
days; cold is usually accompanied with high fever. A sensitive yet contented child who would never
Opium 30 was given on 1.6.1993, 9.10.1993, 15.11.1993 and Opium XM on 19.2.1994.
Significant improvement did not follow the above' prescription.
The case was reevaluated and Causticum 200 one dose was given on 24.4.1994 which
immediately manifested its curative action. The remedy has not been repeated until November 1994.
The author makes an interesting observation: " A 'constitutional remedy' is the one which
represents constitution in its entirety and not the mind alone. It has to go through and through to every
system in the organism right up to tissue and down to the cellular level because each cell of ours is
representative of us. Hence what special qualities are present in an individual cell or a system and the
organism as a whole is the 'Actual Mind' of the organism and this is what determines the constitutional
95. A Case of Seizure
MEHTA Kishore (IJHM, 30, 1/1995)

100. Homoeopathic Approach to the Problem of Cancer
KASAD K.N. (IJHM, 30,1/1995)
This is an interesting article. Cancer is the end product of the disease which had begun years
back in the patient. The precancerous state has to be ascertained in order to prescribe. Since almost
all cancer cases come to the homoeopath after surgery, chemotherapy, irradiation, etc. it is
impossible to get a proper picture of the underlying state. However it is possible to give palliation and
occassionally the cancer also may regress.
Important rubrics relevant to cancer pathology are mentioned. The case-taking and
understanding of the phases are explained. A list of remedies specific to the organs are given
followed by three cases.
101. Epilepsy: Clinician's Approach

102. Perceiving Conscientious -II
BARV ALIA Praful (IJHM, 30, 1/1995)
© Centre For Excellence In Homeopathy 27
Case 1: 29-year-old male. Herpes Genitalis since two years. One episode every 4 months
with burning and soreness for 3 days. Pimples + on face. Aurum metallicum healed his complaints.
The remedy was selected on the basis of the mental state of the patient.
Case 2: 56-year-old male with Congestive Cardiac Failure. Associated complaints like
Hypertension, IHD, Diabetes, etc. He was a conscientious person. Misfortune in his business caused
mental trauma. He was a straight-forward, honest person even in his business dealings and his
inability to pay his creditors made him feel that he was responsible for their problems. He was on
prescribed allopathic medicines.
Aurum metallicum 30 daily gradually raised to b.d. and then t.d.s., then 200 daily. Insulin and
anti-hypertensives were continued. The patient improved steadily.
103. Travails of the Conscientious Stern Teachers
SHINGALA Kirtida (IJHM, 30, 1/1995)
Case 1: 73-year-old lady with inflammation of right knee joint. Osteoarthritis since an year,
worse since three monthe. Teacher by profession. She was ambitious, hard-working to achieve her
goal, scorned her husband who was rather docile and ambition-less. She was haughty. There was
underlying frustration but nevertheless she achieved her aim. Ferrum metallicum M (Ailments from
vexation; Conscientious about trifles; Egotism; Haughty; Craving sweets) in infrequent doses cured.
Case 2: 50-year-old lady, (Headmistress of a school) with Psoriasis. Her ailment was
precipitated when parents of children whom she had refused to be enrolled came in a crowd and she
was thus forced to interview all of them. She experienced a strong feeling of guilt that she was not
doing her job properly and went into severe depression. Basically a very conscientious person; a
perfectionist who demanded the same from others. Excited when injustice is meted out to subordinate
employees. She passed through a strong feeling of guilt when she is pressurised to give admission to
wards of political big-wigs and bad elements.
She was shocked when her husband died suddenly, and she did not shed a drop of tear. She
felt that she had neglected her duty in not taking care of her husband.
Cyclamen cured her .
104. Epilepsy and Emotion
HATTANGDI Sonal A. (IJHM, 30, 1/1995)
Discusses briefly the relationship between emotion and epilepsy. Two cases from A
Textbook of Epilepsy by J. LAIDLAW, A. RICHENS, D. CHADWICK, are given to stress this.
105. The Treatment and Prevention of Post-vaccinal Disease
SMITS Tinus (JAIH, 88, 1/1995)
Dr. Tinus SMITS, through illustrative case histories, identifies some of the numerous adverse
vaccine side-effects and demonstrates an effective method for their treatment when caught early
enough, within the first year. He says that the best treatment is to use the potentized vaccine and to
give it in four potencies over four successive days
30 on day one, 200 on day two, M the third day,
and XM the fourth day. If at any time during those four days an aggravation ensues, the subsequent
doses are suspended and after waiting the whole series is restarted, 14 days later. If a child is
unusually vulnerable, e.g. he had a severe reaction from an earlier vaccination or you are expecting a
strong reaction for whatever reason, every potency can be spaced out a week or more apart. If a
given potency does provoke a strong reaction the same potency can be repeated weekly until there is
no longer any reaction.
The argument is also presented that delaying immunization until after the age of ten months
could help prevent many vaccine side-effects.
106. A Case of Oral Polio Vaccinosis
SCHAFFER Rodney (JAIH,88,1/1995)
© Centre For Excellence In Homeopathy 28
This is a case report of the successful use of a homoeopathic preparation of Oral Polio
Vaccine used to treat a febrile illness which occured 8 days after a dose of Orimune. The incidence of
mild Poliomyelitis and vaccine-related Poliomyelitis as well as the clinical presentations of the 4 Polio-
virus-related syndromes are reviewed. The symptoms in this case upon which the OPV in potency
was prescribed are described.
107. Obstacles to Homeopathic Treatment VITHOULKAS George (JAIH, 88,1/1995)
Disease is manifested as a consequence of stresses impacting one or more of the three-
Ievels that constitute the human organism:
the physical body
the emotional-sexual sphere
the mental-spirituallevels
The obstacles to the homoeopathic treatment would similarly arise at the appropriate levels.
For example: on the physical level -a herniated disc which causes sciatica or a foreign matter stuck in
a part; these need surgical interference plus Homoeopathy. Chemical blockages like coffee or alcohol
in great quantities. And then there are miasmatic obstacles. Permanent organ damage, cases
suffering from an undefined, general weakness of the physical body, also would cause obstacles.
The emotional blockages are classified as:
(1) Husband Syndrome -in women who are not sexually or romantically attracted to their
(2) Deep Emotional Insecurities -these can dramatically alter one's life. These are very
difficult to be cured.
(3) Inescapable Familial Situations -like having a retarded child in the family; conditions of
extreme poverty.
(4) "Sinful" Habits -practices which the patient considers as unwholesome or sinful like
homosexuality, masturbation, drug or alcohol addiction or unhealthy state of mind.
(5) Emotional Death - persons who have suffered emotionally tremendously in life and have
come to the conclusion that there is no love in life, no friendship, no companionship can, as a
consequence, die emotionally.
Mental Blockages - persons who seek 'spiritual' life-style due to frustration; without going
through the stages of spirituality, such person adopts prematurely a 'spiritual' cloak. These are very
difficult cases.
The Health Freaks -those with fixed ideas about health and disease and their symptoms are
greatly modified by these ideas and diets that they usually follow. Hypochondriacs fall in this category.
The 'Intellectuals' will give you a false impression about their overall health condition most of
the time. Since they have the tendency to understand everything that is happening in them in a logical
manner and thus to explain it to themselves and to others, they always give their own interpretation to
their symptoms.
The Independent Patient -they do not want to depend upon the doctor. When they come for
the follow-up visit, they will be likely to confuse the interpretation of their response to the remedy by
suggesting that any improvement they have noted could be due to some other influence, therapeutic
or otherwise, in their life. You have to be very careful with these individuals because there is an inborn
fear that they may depend upon someone if they admit that your remedy made them better.

108. Homoeopathic Grand Rounds
JOHNSTON Linda (JAIH, 88, 1/1995)
A 69-year-old woman, a college professor, with Hypertension, left hip pains, shortness of
breath, hoarseness and weakness. The case improved with Causticum and Digitalis over a total 14
month treatment period. The totality of the case, analysis by Dr. JOHNSTON and comments by Drs.
Mitch FLEISHER, Dean CROTHERS, Paul HERSCU, Karl ROBINSON and final comments by Dr.
JOHNSTON by way of response to the comments, all make very interesting and thought-provoking
109. Clinical Snapshots
Case 1: 65-year-old woman complained of waking up every night with anxiety and
restlessness and inability to go back to sleep for two to three hours after was cured by Cedron 30.
(Clock-like regularity of symptom. The woman said that when she awoke she did not need to look at
the clock since it occurred so exactly at 3 a.m.)
Case 2: Verbascum thapsus 200 cured severe cough in a man of about 30 years. Rumex,
Spongia tosta, Phosphorus, Drosera failed and Verbascum was chosen because of concomitant left
ear pain with trumpeting, deep cough.
110. The Need to Observe and Perceive
ANAND Sunil (HL,8,1/1995)
The author points out, with two illustrative cases, the importance of observing children who
are brought for treatment and not take the parent's statement as totally correct. For example, a child
was said to be "easy to get along" whereas she was observed to be difficult to get along with! Recall
HAHNEMANN's admonition to be present in the interview with all our senses and thus perceive.
111. A Case of Asthma
DAPTARDAR B.G. (HL,8,1/1995)
A girl child of 3 years age with Asthma was treated with Valeriana selected on the basis of the
mother's emotional/mental state.
112. The Gift"
WITTENBURG Christine(HL,8,1/1995)
50 year-old woman with Migraine and Menieres wus healed with Cocculus. The case is
illustrative of psychic wounds leading to illnesses to protect one from developing serious damage.
113. A Case of Alopecia Totalls
NAIDU Rajiv (HL,8,1/1995)
Dreams of big black snake, dreams of terrifying demons, of being pursued and killed,
tremulous bngue, delusions etc. led to prescription of Naja which remedied baldness completely.
114. A Case of Menopausal Symptoms
BIANCHINI Roberto (HL,8,1/1995)
This case of climacteric flushing which began after curettage in a 57-year-old women was
treated with Argentum nitricum. The remedy was selected on the basis of the 'situation' and
'delusions'. The remedy was given in XM and then 200.

115. Leprosy -A Challenge to Homoeopathy CHAKRABORTY Dhruba, ADHIKARY, H.K.
In this essay the authors explain the methodology and medicines (homoeopathic) for
treatment of Lepromatous Leprosy. They have worked a 'general' method instead of individualization.
They have come to conclusion that Mercurius succeeds in 60%, and Kali iodatum and Lycopodium in
20% and 15% respectively, while Natrum muriaticum, Aurum metallicum and Hepar sulphuris in 2%,
2% and 1 % each.

CHOWDHURY Pran Gobind (NJH, 4, 1/1995)
This is a compilation from the KENTRepertory. However, it does not seem to be complete.
2. Additions to Asthma
DHARI Dushyant Kamal (NJH, 4, 1/1995)
Many additions to the Repertory are given, but the author has not indicated the sources from
which he has drawn these 'additions'.
3. Neurosis: Its homoeopathic Approach
SARANGI Ananda Prasad (NJH, 4,2/1995)
The article has nothing to do with the title of the article published. A short list of some mental
symptoms have been drawn from the Repertory and put in.
4. Linking Rubrics
BHARUCHA Piroja M. (HH, 20, 1/1995)
This is a very useful compilation. The author has drawn a list of what are called 'cross
references', 'related rubrics', 'linking rubrics'. For example, 'Disobedience' is linked with: Abusive,
children insulting parents; Disobedience; Answer, questioned, does not answer, when; Answer,
refuses to answer; Audacity; Contradict, disposition to; Quarrelsome; etc. etc. In day-to-day practice
one takes note of such links and jots them down in the repertory SO that time may be saved. The
Synthetic Repertory by Drs. BARTHEL & KLUNKER and the Synthesis Repertorium by Dr. F.
SCHROYENS give many cross-references.
5. Analyse h:oiufig konsultierter Repertoriums- Rubriken (Analysis of frequently consulted
TERLINDEN Michael (ACD, 4, 1/1995)
In this, the second part, the author examines the rubrics " Anxiety in dark" and "Fear of dark" in
the KENT repertory and the Synthesis of SCHROYEN's.
6. A Short Repertorial Study on Etiquette and Mannerism
SHAH Rajesh (HTIMES, 2, 1/1995)
Observation and noting down of the behaviour and mannerisms of the patient forms an
important part of the homoeopath's work. One will find many rubrics in the repertory in this regard.
The manner in which the patient behaves, answers, conducts himself, gestures, etc. are all valuable
clues to the careful 'medical observer'. In this article the author has chosen some rubrics for study.
7. Issues of Control
