“ANGER, EFFECTS OF. Anger may bring about serious bodily disorders. Women who are nursing children should never give the breast soon after a fit of passion. Quiet and seclusion are the best remedies for the fit.
Medicines. (Every hour until relief is obtained; then less often).
Aconite 3. When fever is the result.
Chamomilla 6. Where it takes the form of jaundice. Nursing women should take a dose of Chamomilla after an angry it.
Ignatia 3. When the result is an attack of hysteria.
ANKLES. Weak; Painful; or Swollen.
General Treatment. This will depend on the cause of the weakness. If it is rheumatism, the patient must wear woollen clothing, and adopt all the precautions advised under that heading. If it is due to general debility, constitutional treatment will be required. In case of simple local weakness, hot salt-water or sea-water baths should be used, and proper exercises, which will be prescribed by a medical man, to develop and strengthen the parts that are weak.
Medicines (Two or three times a day).
Apis 3. Simple swelling.
Calcarea phosphorica 3. Weakness of the ankles.
Calcarea carbonica 6. For pale rickety children.

FROM DR. RUDDOCKS Homoeopathic Vade Mecum:.
“CATARRH, COLD IN THE HEAD; and BRONCHIAL CATARRH.
Treatment. Camphor. This remedy is suited to the chill or cold stage, when its prompt administration, in two-drop doses, repeated several times, every ten or twenty minutes, will often terminate the disease in the first stage. It should be chosen in preference to Aconite when the patient has still to be exposed to atmospheric changes. It is of little or no use except in the incipient stage.
Aconitum. Commencement of a cold, or in the precursory stages of diseases resulting from a cold, with feverishness. If promptly administered, it often obviates the necessity for any other medicine. A dose every second or third hour. If the cold has advanced into any other disease, Aconitum may be alternated with or substituted by, some other remedy.
Bryonia. For Bronchial Catarrh. Cold on the chest with hard cough, shaking the head, etc., and soreness of chest, Bryonia is one of the best remedies, with or without Aconitum.
Gelsemium. Watery discharge from the nose, soreness in the throat and chest, cough and hoarseness; early stage of acute bronchitis, without the excitement calling for Aconitum; catarrhal ophthalmia.
Colocynthis (Bitter cucumber):.
Leading Uses. Colic with diarrhoea; neuralgia; pain; is its most essential indication.
Nervous system. Neuralgic hemicrania, with sensation as if the head were in a vice and pressive or burning, cutting pain in the eyeball; violent stitches in the forehead and eyes from within outwards. Facial neuralgia, chiefly on the left side, with headache and toothache the pains being tearing, stitching, aggravated by warmth and motion, and occurring periodically. Sciatica the pain being lancinating and darting down the leg from the hip to the foot, worse when raising the limb, but better with continued exercise, and especially when diarrhoea and colicky pain also exist.
Digestive System, etc. Severe griping or cutting pain, as from knives, in the abdomen and about the navel, increased by food, with irritability of the bowel, followed by copious diarrhoea with straining, the diarrhoea affording relief, but the symptoms may speedily recur; dysenteric diarrhoea, the evacuations consisting mainly of blood with severe colic. Colicky and stitching pains in the ovaries and liver.
