The description of the growth often helps to select the remedy. For instance, in one case it represented finger – like bleeding excrescences almost obstructing the rectum. Nitric acid suited this condition, as well as the general demeanor of the patient. Case is doing nicely with an occasional dose of intercurrent Sepia and looks better, feels better. No colostomy as yet three months after the proctologist recommended it.
THE IMPORTANT THINGS ABOUT NAJA TRIPUDIANS WITH COMMENTS. Naja is one of the snake poison remedies which to me is one of the most important. It is best potentized from the pure cobra venom coming from India. It might be easily confused with Lachesis unless one were to read it up in Roberts Study of Remedies by Comparison. About all I will do here is to endeavor to give you highlights of their differences in my comments as I go along.
ALUMINUM POISONING–SOME CASUAL OBSERVATIONS. In our discussions of the various forms of aluminum–alum being sodium aluminum sulphate, other forms being available through your diet–we must not overlook the fact that the process in cooking is one of formation of aluminum hydroxide, I believe, and the one that is so frequently used in the populace of our country, aluminum chloride, which is one of the chief ingredients in practically all of the underarm deodorants.
The first case was a married woman with five children, who developed the disease and became completely paralyzed from her waist down. At the same time she began to miscarry, being about five months pregnant. Nux vomica helped her through that rather trying time. She is still paralyzed; has had two pregnancies since, which have had to be terminated by caesarean section, because she has absolutely no abdominal muscles at all.
NITRIC ACID IN RECTAL CANCER. The description of the growth often helps to select the remedy. For instance, in one case it represented finger-like bleeding excrescences almost obstructing the rectum. Nitric acid suited this condition, as well as the general demeanor of the patient. Case is doing nicely with an occasional dose of intercurrent Sepia and looks better, feels better. No colostomy as yet three months after the proctologist recommended it.
TUBERCULOSIS-BASICALLY A DISEASE OF DEFICIENT MINERAL METABOLISM AND LOW VITALITY. Demineralization is a word, I think, which just about hits the nail on the head. I feel that the relationship of tuberculosis to mineral deficiency is that the body is not, for some reason or other, due to its inherent miasm, able to retain the necessary minerals in the blood stream, and they are excreted through the kidneys at too large a rate.
SURGERY NEEDS HOMOEOPATHIC SUPPORT. Disillusion your patients of the fact that they are wasting time by taking medicine. In acute abdomens, such as ruptured peptic ulcers, ectopics and appendices, one often a few hours to get in some good “licks” before the patient goes to surgery. But here one must be very watchful and quick to recognize the need for immediate surgery.
POLIO ABORTED WITH REMEDIES. Following the course of his disease,he didn’t die but he was very severely crippled,and for years later had to use crutches to walk,whereas the patient I attended,married just a year after he had contracted the disease and was able do dance the day of his marriage, with his bride.

AN INTERESTING CASE. Somewhere I had read that it you get the right remedy you can cure almost anything. What was the key to unlock this case that had not yet been given? I believed there was such a remedy and continued the search for it,though discouraged many times.
SAVING THAT MASTOID CASE FROM THE SURGEON. All cases regained their normal hearing and no signs of infection were left. All ears were placed so that the child lay on the opposite side to promote drainage down the eustachian tube. Mild cases first seen with a red bulging drum were placed on frequently doses of Bell. and warm Mullein oil in the ear for pain. If mastoid were threatening, I placed an ice cap to that area instead of warm oil in the ears.
A SERIES OF SCIATICAS. Soreness of right sciatic nerve for eighteen months. Onset from a strain playing gold. Cold natured.
Aggravated standing. Aggravated lying on the affected side. Ameliorated warmth. Excruciating pain of the nerves about the rectum off the coccygeal plexus. Osteopathic treatment, salicylate saturation and morphine failed to give relief.
MY MANAGEMENT OF APPENDICITIS. The Old School tells us we take too many chances with appendicitis. What if it should burst? Well, I am not so sure but that we could handle that too. We have several good remedies that cover all the pathology attendant upon a burst appendix; to name a few, I will list Lachesis, Pyrogen and other good septic remedies.
WAYS OF GIVING THE POTENCY. In disease of great pathology or with more end results present or in the aged where vitality is sadly weakened, one should favor the low potencies perhaps given a little more often, while in early functional states with not much pathology as yet present and in the young with lots of vitality, higher and higher potencies can be nicely tolerated.
I need not give you a textbook picture of this drug because you can read it for yourself in any good materia medica. However, I do favor the account given of it in Anshutzs New, Old and Forgotten Remedies. For instance, at the bottom of page 111 the author was suddenly seized with a terrible pain in left breast; it extended over the entire region of the heart and down the left arm to the wrist.
It is my aim in this paper to give as short, concise, terse, as practical a discussion of the correct management of diabetes in most of its phases as possible. Realizing that among practitioners at large these metabolic diseases are handled so poorly, it is my endeavor in this paper to improve our therapeutic skill in this branch of medicine.
If your case appears to be locked or doesnt repertorize out well or the seemingly indicated remedy fails to act there is either of two things happening, namely, a less well proven remedy that doesnt repertorize out high in the totality remembering that your polychrests are proven over and over again and it is they that usually rank high; or else a mental remedy is indicated.
These are not all original with me-merely ideas that I have formed in the course of my practice, attending conventions, reading from authors and in talking with my older teachers. I have tried to add my own personal touch to them, amount to whatever it may.
There is nothing that works quite so well, in the exceptional treatment, as the indicated homoeopathic remedy improving the patients general health as well as the asthma. Herein lies the specificity of tissue reaction of our remedies as well as constitutional betterment. I have no argument to make over the repertoires. Some find they can use one better than another.
