Preface
Life was first born in sea water. Each salt that exists in sea exists in the
human body.
As Nature fulfils vacant spaces with atoms and other vital elements,
Tissue Remedies of the Bio-chemic Therapeutics fulfill deficiency of
the cell-salts and activate organic substances to achieve proper
metabolism. Disturbed molecular motion of cell-salts is rectified
directly by these Tissue Remedies (inorganic constituents) with
homogeneous substances whereas Homoeopathy does it indirectly with
heterogeneous substances.
Nature is God. So the cell-salts (inorganic substances) which derive

pure energy from Nature are divine by birth. Their celestial value has
been established constantly for about 150 years on human beings by
eminent doctors from the very inception in different environments.
Biology acknowledges that Biochemistry is scientific. It is the
wonderful outcome of the doctrines of the three essential sciences Biology, Physiology, and Chemistry. It deals with the chemistry of living
organism. It deals with the human body which obeys chemical,
physiological, biological laws. It is therefore sacred. It offers the
Springs of Wisdom and serenity naturally. It is the need of the soul and
the body.
Blood contains organic and inorganic substances. Sugar, fats and
albumin are organic constituents of the blood. The inorganic
constituents are water and minerals called cell-salts, namely calcium,
potash, lime, silica, iron, magnesium, sodium, chloride etc. The Biochemic Therapy consists of three Calcium minerals, three Potassium
minerals, three Sodium minerals, one Iron mineral, one Magnesium
mineral and Silica mineral. In so far as distribution of cell-salts is taken
into consideration, it has been recognized that Dr Schusslers Biochemic Theory integrates the knowledge of the human cellular structure
with proper use of the mineral salts (cell-salts) as a therapeutical method
to fortify as well as energize the cells of the body. These salts are vital
nutritional elements for the cells/tissues. Even creation of new cells in
the body depends on the presence of these salts which are in ionic form
i.e. digestible easily.
An intake of more cell salts will do us no harm and be excreted from
the system. This is not like an herb, drug or nutritional supplement
where the body has to expend energy to rid the body of the excess.

The cell-salts are essential as they form the basic foundation for enzyme
activity in the body and serve as catalysts in energy cycles. The cell-salts
take care of water balance, digestion, cell-elasticity, oxygenation,
nutrition, sodium/potassium balance and remove toxins.
The angelic cell-salts are the workers-the builders of the body. Every
disease which afflicts the human body is purely due to deficiency of one
or more of these inorganic builders. Equilibrium of the inorganic
substances is essential to human living organism as much as it is for
fertile soil and plant life. Soil is an ecosystem. It is vibrant with life.
Fertility of the soil is attributive to the unique invisible amazing world
of biodiversity. In a pinch of fertile soil, we shall find millions of living
organisms for wellbeing and sustainability of life on earth. No wonder
the soil was sacred to ancient Hindu Sages.
Bio-chemic remedies are chemically pure salts, which are homogeneous
to cell-minerals in our body, and suit self-treatment to the T. No
apprehension of unpleasant side-effects. If the cause/emotion has been
identified, process of self-healing commences. The tissue salts assist the
metabolism, until the body can do it on its own.
The Bio-chemic Therapy uses Mineral kingdom. It triturates the mineral
salts. It impregnates the cells with pulverized minerals. It is the
scientific key to normal health of the human body. It is divine, as the
basic principle is founded on the Law of Nature.
Salts are absorbed by the cells in the form of ions (electrically charged
atoms formed by electrons). The bio-chemic remedy restores the ion
gradient essential for the normal functioning of the cells.
The concept of minimal doses to achieve cure is reflected in the nutritive

value and metabolic history of the salt-minerals enunciated by Dr


Schussler:
A disturbance of the molecular motion of one of inorganic
materials in a tissue causes a sickness, for the cure of which it
suffices that a minimal dose of the same inorganic substance
be furnished, since the molecules of the material thus used as
a remedy fill the breach in the chain of molecules of the cellsalts or tissue-salts under consideration.
Rabindranath Tagore who was the voice of Indias spiritual heritage and
won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913, used to cure people suffering
from various diseases by these remedies and declared that the Biochemic Therapy is very simple but very effective. Such an encouraging
practical opinion from the genius and highly revered personality led to
the steady development and growth of the twelve tissue remedies of the
Bio-chemic Therapy in India and has culminated in establishment of
several educational institutions in West Bengal and other Indian States
with blessings from Honorable High Courts in one or two cases, it is
learnt.
In India, the popularity and therapeutic success of the Tissue Remedies
are discernible from the salient features which are being elucidated
hereinafter:The simple scientific logic of the Theory and Principles of the
Bio-chemic Therapy, which differs in concept from other medical
systems of the world, and the remarkable success which has been
achieved in its practical application to the problems of treatment
of the sick and suffering people from time to time, particularly in
rural India, has impressed the people immeasurably.

In the domain of the therapeutics, the Indian medical professional


has availed of personal experience liberally with adequate
knowledge of these tissue remedies, after examining the published
data in available foreign and Indian books thoroughly.
The skill of the Bio-chemic physician lies in tracing a given case
of illness to its deficient salt; when it is done, the remedy selected
cures. The cellular therapy of Dr Schussler is equipped with 12
Tissue Remedies only. So the selection is not difficult. The
knowledge of mineral elements, vital to human body, has not
remained stationary. It has progressed. According to Hoeber,
Openheimer and Stocklasa, the noted scientists, Aluminum,
Arsenic, Borax, Bromine, Copper, Iodine, Lithium, Manganese,
Plumbum, Radium, Selenium, Vanadium and Zinc also take part
in the build-up of the human body. It is therefore evident that with
the enlarged sphere of tissue remedies, limitation of effectiveness,
if any, vanishes, even in incurable diseases.
So, besides the Traditional Concept of the Medical System
enunciated by Dr Schussler, Modern Concept has also emerged
which encompasses any medicinal substance (bio-component)
used as Bio-chemic Medicine in conformity with the basic
principles and theory of the Tissue Therapy, suitable to the Biochemic human body.
Direct intake of calcium, iron, vitamins etc, may be harmful to the
human body, but it is safe absolutely if the Tissue Remedies which
contain these and other vital elements are taken almost regularly
for healthy maintenance of the body. Tissue Remedies are the
equivalent of vitamin tablets. Dr Mukesh Batra.
India lacks in care of pregnant women and infants, but with proper
administration of the Bio-chemic nutrient remedies, complete care
of the period of pregnancy, and children is possible.
When these tiny tablets are consumed as remedies for various

diseases, a required food substance is being taken in a simpler


form than the meals, and does not need any breakdown of the
substances to achieve proper metabolism. Editors of B. Jain have
clarified this phenomenon in their book entitled How to use the
Twelve Tissue Salts.
Regular and timely use of these Tissue Salts is likely to prevent
several diseases including cancer, diabetes, malaria etc. For
instance as Natrum Sulph eliminates water, which is a breeding
ground for mosquitoes, from the living organism, it works as a
remedy for malaria and leukemia.
With the aid of these mineral-salts, therapeutic possibilities exist and
multiply in India and elsewhere wonderfully.

In the matter of trituration, it would be quite interesting to know the


categorical views of Dr N. Kodanda Ramaiah in his book 40 Tissue
Remedies:We have today a subdivision of the atom, the electron. Atom
contains electrons and nucleus. Each atom can be compared to
that of the solar system. All the electrons revolve around the
nucleus like planets, by attraction power of the nucleus with a
speed of nearly 20000 miles per second. Experiments proved
that they are purely electric in nature. Nucleus contains
protons and neutrons. While dividing nucleus into protons
and neutrons there arises energy. This is called the Matter
Energy Transformation. Hindu sages found this many
decades ago and told that a matter can be transformed into
energy by trituration (Mardanam gunavardhanam).
Hahnemann and Schussler adopted this rule.

Dr Schussler had a peculiar genius for languages. He was a master of


Latin, Greek, French, Italian, Spanish and English. He also had good
knowledge of Sanskrit, so he might have read about Mardanam
Gunavardhanam and adopted it gracefully. Sanskrit fascinated Germans
considerably. Some words in German language are very similar to the
words
in
Sanskrit.
This
aspect
deserves
proper
investigation/confirmation in line with the factual statement of Albert
Einstein, worlds greatest scientist:
We owe a lot to the Indians who taught us how to count, without
which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.
In case upon proper investigation it is discovered that the above views of
Dr Kodanda Ramaiah on trituration are true and the conclusion so
arrived at is acknowledged universally, it would inculcate in us a feeling
of elation, pleasure, and pride, as from the aforesaid pious declaration
from Einstein.
The divinity of the remedies transforms them into prophylactics
(preventive medicines), for instance Natrum Sulph 3x acts as a
preventive in the case of dengue, leukemia and malaria; Kali Mur 3x for
jaundice, measles and chicken pox; Calcarea Fluor 12x for cataract.
We shall have to awaken our inner Shakti to avail of true chemical
hygiene.
The cures obviously are being brought about by virtue of the
operation of chemical affinity in the domain of histology, a branch
of Biology concerned with the microscopic study of the structure of
the tissues. It is based on the fact that it is in harmony with the

well-known laws in physiological chemistry and allied sciences.


BRIEF HISTOY

The German Dr Wilhelm Heinrich Schussler (born on August 21, 1821


at Oldenburg) based his Bio-chemic therapeutics on the activity of cells,
using the most important inorganic salts of which the human body is
composed. He discovered that the salts which remain after combustion
form an integral part of each cell, although existing in extremely small
quantities and any alteration in their quantitative relation disturbs
normal function of the cells and causes disease.
In search of excellence in his scientific theory, he was inspired by Dr
Moleshott, professor of physiology in the University of Rome:
The structure and vitality of organs are dependent upon
necessary amounts of inorganic constituents.
Dr Schussler was led by the above to a study of physiologico-chemical
action of the inorganic constituents of the human organism and
developed Biochemical Therapy based on the chemistry of the tissues.
Dr Schussler was also equally inspired by Dr Rudolf Virchow, father of
Cellular Pathology:
Nature works everywhere with an infinite number of small
magnitudes, which, whether in homogeneous or
heterogeneous aggregations, can only be perceived by
relatively obtuse organs of sense when in finite masses. The
smallest picture which our eyes perceive proceeds from
millions of waves of light. A granule of salt that we are

hardly able to taste contains milliards of groups of atoms


which no sentient eye will ever view.
William H. Howell, Ph. D., M.D., Sc.D., LL. D., who was Professor of
Physiology, in The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore has drawn up a
specific feature of the inorganic substances in a Text-Book of
Physiology:
The body contains in its tissues and liquids a considerable amount of
inorganic material. When any organ is incinerated this material remains
as ash. If we include the bones, which are rich in mineral matter, the
average amount of ash in the body amounts to about 4.3 to 4.4 per cent
of its weight. The bones, however, in the adult contain most of the ash
(five-sixths). In the soft tissues, like the muscle, the ash constitutes
about 0.6 to 0.8 per cent of the moist weight. The ash consists of
chlorides, phosphates, sulphates, carbonates, fluorides, or silicates of
potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, and iron; iodine occurs also,
especially in the thyroid tissues.
For facilitating proper assimilation and diffusion into the cells of the
human body, mineral salts are attenuated by using successive steps of
trituration (decimal system), and formed into tablets. The then existing
pharmaceutical company (The Luyties Pharmacal Company) gathered
this vital information in detail for preparation of Tissue Salts from Dr
Schussler himself and employed it at their laboratories in Saint Louis,
MO, USA.
On his return in the United States, Dr Luyties, assisted by Drs Hering,
Goodman, and Mathison, translated the first edition of Dr Schusslers
book on the bio-chemic system of medicine from the original German
into English. Its success among American physicians was immediate,

and the twelve Schussler remedies since then have been prescribed in
constantly increasing quantities.
Consequential to the popularity and therapeutic success of the Biochemic Therapy, the original work Abridged Biochemic Therapy was
published fifty-six times with additions and extensions made by Dr
Schussler from time to time.
Dr Schussler laid a strong foundation of medical education for this
system by establishing The Institute of Bio-chemic Medicines which
now has numerous branches throughout the countries of European
Union, South Africa and Australia.
In 1908 at 100 State Street, Chicago, U.S.A., about three decades after
the birth of Dr Schusslers Tissue Remedies (Bio-chemic Therapy) in
Germany, a monthly Journal of Direct Therapeutics, namely
Ellingwoods Therapeutics (Editor Finley Ellingwood, M.D.) was
published regularly, in each issue of which some leading articles on The
Tissue Remedies were presented by eminent doctors. The author is
pleased to cite gist of certain potential clinical cases of cure by specific
Tissue Remedies as appeared on pages 3 to 7 of Volume 2 issue 3 of
March 15, 1908 of the Journal, emanating from the pen of Dr W. E.
Kinnett, M. D., Peoria, Illinois, hereinafter:
1) A one year old baby had a severe diarrhea, some vomiting, and every
few moments, it would have severe cramping pains and had to draw up
its legs and arms in a spasmodic condition, which had no connection
with the bowel movements which were thin & green in color. The baby
suffered from 104 degree fever; the tongue was coated white. It got
cured in 24 hours by administration of Ferrum Phos for fever and Kali
Mur with Magnesia Phos for spasmodic condition.

2) In the case of a severe attack of sciatica with violent pains even on


least movement, a lady was cured by administration of Mag Phos and
Kali Phos in 10 grain doses of the 3x trituration in hot water every half
hour. The doses were given in the evening. Next day in the morning she
was better and by the evening she was entirely free from pain.
3) A case of delirium tremens with a slimy, frothy appearance of the
tongue with watery secretions was relieved in a short time by five grain
doses of Natrum Muriate 3x.
Before I conclude the brief history, I am inclined to quote below a
statement of Dr N. M. Jaisoorya, M.D., Member of Parliament, from
The Homoeopathic Bulletin, Sep. 52, page 107, as it appears in 40
Tissue Remedies by N. Kodanda Ramaiah:I have seen it done in one district where a dozen relatively trained
men armed with tissue remedies are working miracles and, as a
result, Government allopathic dispensaries running empty of
patients.
The incidence occurred when the cellular therapy of Dr Schussler was
equipped with 12 Tissue Remedies only. The knowledge of mineral
elements, vital to human body, has developed tremendously. According
to Hoeber, Openheimer and Stocklasa, the well-known scientists, the
hereinafter mentioned elements also are vital workers in the build-up of
the human body:(Aluminum, Arsenic, Borax, Bromine, Copper, Iodine, Lithium,
Manganese, Plumbum, Radium, Selenium, Vanadium and Zinc)

To cite an illustration, when a minute amount of the trace element


arsenic is added to a prescription of Kali Phos, it acts as a synergist, a
co-ordinating element, and corrects metabolism in chronic asthma
patients whose phosphorus metabolism requires its assistance for the
cure.
Apart from the above, the essential constituents, although only in trace
amounts, as the above, comprise of cobalt, boron, and nickel also.
It is therefore evident that with the enlarged sphere of tissue remedies,
limitation of effectiveness, if any, vanishes, even in incurable diseases.
Dr Med. Eric Graf Von Der Goltz makes applicable the term
SEMIOTIK for indication of the pathological symptoms of the Biochemic remedies.

BIO-CHEMIC THERAPY versus HOMOEOPATHY


Homoeopathy deals in Similars; it chooses a medicine which excites
an affection similar to the disease against which it is employed;
Cocculus produces bouts of dizziness, so it is prescribed to treat
dizziness; Thallium is depilatory, so assists against loss of hair.
The Bio-chemic Remedies are chemically pure salts, homogeneous to
the cell-minerals in human body. Disturbed molecular motion in the
cells is rectified by administration of these mineral salts.
Pure pathology is that branch of biology which defines the particular
perturbation of cell-life. (Huxley)
Bio-chemic Therapy acts, says Dr Schussler, by means of homogeneous
substances, while Homoeopathy attains its curative ends in an indirect
way, by means of heterogeneous substances.
Dr Schussler has also written categorically that his healing method is
not a homoeopathic one because it is not based on the simile principle
but on the physiological-chemical processes which take place in the
human organism.
We are, by birth, Spiritual Beings and acquire human experiences, as we
advance in age. A human body has about 75 trillion cells. Each cell does
about six trillion actions per second, and is gifted with data equivalent

to input in about 85000 computers, it has been acknowledged. This


Spiritualism is reflected in physiological-chemical functions of the Biochemic remedies.
Life was first born in sea water. Each salt, which exists in sea, graces
human cells.
The basic principle of the Bio-chemic Medical System is founded on
law of Nature. As Nature fulfils vacant spaces with atoms etc, Biochemic System of Therapeutics covers deficiency of inorganic
substances in the human tissues and activates organic substances, to
achieve proper metabolism.
Upon thorough scrutiny of the two medical systems, we firmly believe
that, besides the above basic differences, the facts and figures
enumerated below, also lead us to this factual conclusion:1) Founder-Father
A son cannot have two fathers; pathy also no exception. Dr Schussler
has been recognized as Founder-father of Bio-chemic Therapeutics; Dr
Hahnemann that of Homoeopathy.
2) Recognition in the Country of Origin
Both Homoeopathy and Bio-chemic System of treatment have
originated from Germany, and both have been recognized by the
Government of Germany as independent medical systems. In India,
ICMR has observed that Bio-chemic system is contemporary to
homoeopathy or modern medicine.

3) Text-Books
Both medical systems have several text-books written by foreign
as well as Indian authors. Dr Schusslers Abridged Biochemic
Therapy was published several times during his life-time. So
great was his popularity and therapeutic success.
4) Single / several doses
Homoeopathy generally advocates application of a single dose to
cure a patient based on specific constitution of an individual and
his/her totality of symptoms. No such restriction is imposed in the
case of Bio-chemic remedies. For prevention of seasonal illnesses
during Winter and Fall Months, one dose of Ferrum Phos in the
morning, & one dose of Kali Mur in the evening; in the Spring,
Ferrum Phos in the morning & Calcarea Phos in the evening, and
during the Summer Kali Mur in the morning & Natrum Phos in
the evening can be taken regularly based on the advice of Dr J. B.
Chapman in his Dr Schusslers Biochemistry.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
5) Preparation
Homoeopathic medicines are prepared from plants, live substances,
body impurities, chemicals, synthetics, minerals etc. Bio-chemic uses
Minerals, and is prepared according to the decimal scale in Trituration
or dilution. Besides decimal, Homoeopathy resorts to Centesimal and
Fifty Millesimal scales and Mother Tinctures also.
6) Like complements like:

In the case of Tissue Remedies, Like complements Like or we


may say Like serves Like inasmuch as bio-salts remove the
deficiency of cell-salts and restore health whereas in
Homoeopathy, the medicine owns symptoms which are more
powerful than the symptoms of the disease, and therefore
medicine can create ailments, in the words of Dr K.P.S. Dhama
& Dr (Mrs) Suman Dhama.
7) If a Homeopathic medicine is administered continuously for a
long period, it may give birth to symptoms of the disease in the body.
No such apprehension when Tissue Remedies are taken, as they are
nutritious and simpler than normal meals. The analysis of the blood and
tissues of a healthy human being reveals the presence of the twelve
inorganic salts and some trace elements.
Being constituents of cell life and intercellular processes, these
mineral elements are important factors in effective elimination of
waste and worn-out cell products and in the dispersal of
congestions harmful to the health of the body. (Editors of B.
Jain)

POTENCY, DOSES & FREQUENCY

The usual dose for adults is 5 tablets of the indicated remedy, three
or four times a day. Each tablet measures one grain. For children, it
should not be more than three grains, twice / thrice per day, and for
infants, half or one grain twice per day. When two or more medicines
are required, they should be given preferably in alternation, every two
hours. If the pains are severe, give it in hot water, until desired relief
is achieved.
In acute cases, a dose every half hour or one or two hours as may be
needed; in severe/emergency situation, every ten minutes 5 times but
one day only, thereafter from next day usual daily doses of three or
four per day; in chronic cases, two / three doses daily.
The best method is to put the tablets below the tongue. For babies
and infants, the tablets are crushed and carefully administered in a
powder form or dissolved in a teaspoonful of water and given from
the spoon, but not through the bottle feed.
The Bio-chemic Remedies are prepared in the form of triturations, in
powder form or in tablet forms. The tablets are the most convenient
forms, as administration in such forms ensures proper & correct
dosage.
A diet of fruit and vegetable juices is good for bio-chemic medicines.
In any case, strong spices, stimulants such as coffee, tea, tobacco,

and wines should be avoided at the time of taking bio-chemic


remedies. It is desirable that no medicine is given within an hour
before or after a meal.
Frequency should be reduced after amelioration.
Schussler preferred 12th trituration for Calcarea Fluor, Ferrum Phos,
and Silicea, but 3x or 6x is also quite good for each and every Biochemic medicine.
1x or 2x trituration of the Tissue Remedies can be applied externally,
when required, as a lotion of 10 to 15 grains in 1 oz, or as an ointment
in two parts of vaseline, or as a dusting powder.
Some Hints for Medical Check-ups
A stitch in time saves nine.
Simple urine, stool, blood tests once-a-year for persons above 35 years
from one of the reliable diagnostic laboratories are desirable as a
preventive measure and to bring down cost of healthcare. Early
pathological detection leads to easy safe treatment. Any delay in proper
investigation increases the risk of getting affected with fatal diseases
without any inkling thereof generally. Such preventive health check-ups
are essential particularly for persons with high stress levels
consequential to long working hours, short deadlines and even short
temper. Routine blood examination, for example, helps in detecting
bronchial asthma, cholera, filariasis, malaria, pleurisy, pneumonia,
rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disorder, tuberculosis etc, besides any
other test which may be necessary to be conducted for a disease under
investigation. So it is quite vital.

Similarly urine culture is essential for detecting hypertension, filariasis,


meningitis; stool culture for cholera; blood culture for beriberi,
meningitis, pneumonia, ricket, tuberculosis; sputum culture for
bronchial asthma, pneumonia, tuberculosis; X-Ray (P A view) for
bronchial
asthma,
cardiac failure,
hypertension,
pleurisy,
tuberculosis.
Although primarily Bio-chemic therapy takes care of diseases based on
deficiency of cell-salts, we list below briefly certain specific diseasewise tests for preliminary information:1) Free T3, Free T4 and TSH estimations, the upgraded versions
of thyroid tests.
2) E.C.G. for ventricular hypertrophy and hypertension; Eco
Cardiogram, Tread Mill Stress Test, Angiography (conventional),
C. T. Angiography (imaging).
3) Serological test to detect malarial parasite.
4) Cerebro-spinal fluid test in the case of meningitis, and may be
C.T. Scan.
5) Pleural fluid examination (Glucose, Chloride, AFB Smear,
Gram Staining Smear) in the case of pleurisy.
6) Synovial fluid test for rheumatoid arthritis.
7) Liver Function Test (LFT) for liver related disorders.
8) Lipid Profile: to ascertain Cholesterol level-HDL, LDL,
VLDL. Triglycerides.
9) Blood tests for glucose level: fasting, PP, and random- for
diabetes.
10)

Blood Creatinine, Uric Acid etc: for Kidney functions.

11)
Ultra Sonography of abdomen (Lower/upper/full): Stone
in gall bladder, kidneys, liver related problems, pancreas
functioning etc., pregnancy, infertility etc.
12)

X rays and Scans: Need based to study inner of the body.

13)

Widal Test : for Typhoid

14)

Bone Marrow Test for blood cancer.

15)
Pre Operative Tests: CBC, ABO Grouping & Rh Typing,
Glucose, HIV 1 & 2 ABS, HBsAg, BUN, VDRL, Urinalysis
(Urea, Creatinine).

GOLDEN RULES
To every ailment under the sun,
There is a remedy or there is none.

If there is one try and find it,


If there is none, never mind it
1) Never delay treatment of any disease or ailment. Promptness
pays.
2) Consultation with a qualified experienced physician from time
to time is a must.
3) Always remember and follow the principle to cure in a mild,
prompt, safe and durable manner.
4) Never take any medicine longer than needed. Adhere to this
golden maxim on all occasions. Remember, it is the patient who
has to cure himselfthe drug is only the stimulus that starts the
vital reactionSo long the patient is improving, let him be, and
never meddle till he begins to slip back: that is the first possible
moment to repeat, or to reconsider the case. It is safer to be a little
late than a little too soon. You must go fast slowly, there is no
other way. (J. T. Kent).
5) Develop your knowledge and insight by studying disease-wise
remedies carefully.
6) Direct thought to the cause of disease and select the remedy
from the indicated medicines. Dr Hering has advised to take notice
of at least three prominent symptoms for successful use of the
medicine. If you do so, you will not falter at all. One can sit on
three legged stool comfortably, he has asserted.
7) One spark is good enough to burn a big pile of grass; two words
are sufficient to alter thought process of human beings. Likewise
minimal doses serve the purpose wonderfully.
8) Bio-chemic remedies are administered two or three times daily, as

the condition demands. Health is maintained so long as the body


receives these cell-workers. There is nothing miraculous about it. It is
a natural law. Chronic diseases which have come up by excessive use
of quinine, mercury etc are curable by minute doses of these cellminerals, which destroy breeding place for fungi, germs, or bacilli.
9) Always use 3x, 6x, or 12x potency of Bio-chemic medicines,
preferably 3x.
10) Investigation, where necessary, must be carried out before
arriving at any decision for treatment.
11) An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In Winter,
and in Fall months, take five celloids of Ferrum Phos in the morning,
and five celloids of Kali Mur in the evening; in Spring, take Ferrum
Phos in the morning, Calcarea Phos in the evening; during Summer,
take Kali Mur in the morning, Natrum Phos in the evening; this is the
advice of Dr J. B. Chapman for prevention of illnesses. Such intakes,
we state, may be on alternate days or weekly, as may suit an
individual.
12) In acute cases, when the patient gets better, the higher potencies
are given till the disease is entirely cured and its recurrence
prevented; and in chronic cases when the patient feels better, the
lower ones may be given to hasten the process of recovery. DR B. N.
MITRA

(3)
CALCAREA SULPHURICA
(Calcium Sulphate, Plaster of Paris)
The bile contains it. It destroys worn-out red blood corpuscles in the
liver by eliminating their water, and excreting the remnants through
biliary action. Hence the blood does not contain useless cells. It cures
purulent excretions from the mucous membranes. It removes purulent
exudations from serous sacs. It cures tuberculous ulcers of the

intestines, also ulceration or deep seated abscess of the cornea. It is


known as an Ulcer Remedy. The presence of pus with a vent is the
general indication (Boricke & Dewey). It is a constituent of all
connective tissues. It increases blood coagulation. It stimulates
metabolism.
It controls yellow colored suppuration, which may be tinged with blood.
While Silicea hastens the process of suppuration in a normal manner,
Calc Sulph closes up the process at the proper time. George W. Carey.

f) It acts brilliantly in old people.
g) It exists in all cells, is related to several enzymatic
processes, and plays a significant role in fighting infections.
Valuable Comments:
Every family should have Ferrum Phosphoricum.
(H. G. Jaedicke)
The red corpuscles in the blood have their cycle of life, comprising
from two to six weeks, and on their disintegration the iron from them is
stored in the liver until it is used again. Healthy kidneys hold back much
of the iron that would be otherwise lost in the urine, though some part
of the bodys iron content is lost in the process of sloughing of skin,
perspiration and through feces. (Editors of B. Jain)
A hyperaemia resulting from mechanical injury will be removed by this
remedy, and under its use fresh wounds, not yet suppurating, quickly

heal Several farmers have, upon my advice, given with constant


success Ferrum Phosphoricum to sows which had become possessed
with the mania of eating their young. This disorder, mania transitoria, is
dependent upon hyperaemia of the brain. (Dr Schussler)

(5)
KALI MURIATICUM
(Potassium Chloride, a muscle salt)
Like Ferrum Phos, it is a constituent of every cell. It unites with
hydrogen and forms hydrochloric acid, hence dissolves fibrinexudations, and excretes redundant cell-substances. So it is a remedy for
smallpox, chickenpox, scarlet fever and measles.
It assists in the formation of protein and in carbohydrate utilization. It
stimulates metabolism. It is therefore an indispensable constituent of the
living organism. The principal characteristic symptoms are a white or
gray coating at the base of the tongue, white or gray exudations,
glandular swellings, discharges or expectorations of a thick, white
fibrinous slime or phlegm. (Boericke & Dewey); it is therefore a
remedy for catarrh of mucous membranes.
It almost always follows Ferrum Phos.

It has proved curative in:1) Dysentery in 6x potency in alternation with Ferrum Phos 6x.
2) Diphtheria, can gargle with it also.
3) Laryngeal croup.
4) Croupy cough; croupous pneumonia and pleurisy.
5) Inflammation of the skin with or without erysipelas.
6) Cutaneous eruptions from bad vaccine.
7) Chronic cystitis with discharge of thick white mucus.
8) Eczema, if the skin blisters and excretes.
9) It is used with Kali Phos in typhoid, enteric and typhus fevers.
10) The 3x potency as a lotion controls blistering in burns & scalds;
simultaneously 6x potency 5grain doses should be taken internally,
every two hours.
11) Closed Eustachian tubes; snapping and noises in the ear.
12) Mumps, swelling of the parotid glands.
13) Obstinate constipation; Jaundice.

KALI PHOSPHORICUM
(POTASSIUM PHOSPHATE; CHIEF NERVE SALT)
Bio-chemic treatment is the outcome of the doctrines of Biochemistry.
Brain is the principal centre of sensation, thought, volition, feelings,
and consciousness. THE GRAY MATTER of the brain is controlled
entirely by the inorganic cell-salt, potassium phosphate (George W.
Carey, M. D.), which is a constituent of the brain, the nerves, the
muscles, and the blood-corpuscles. It is an indispensable constituent of
the fluids and tissues of the human body and significantly forms the
structures of gray matter in the brain and nerves. It unites with albumin,
and by the addition of oxygen creates nerve fluid and cells of the brain.
The function of the brain, nerve cells, muscles, blood-cells, bloodplasma and tissue fluid depends on Kali Phos. It is the most significant
salt of the cells for nerve fertilization.
As potassium phosphate is the chemical property of Kali Phos, nerves
retain their vital properties in the human organism.
Kali Phosphorus is an omniscient remedy. It is an elixir of life. It has
won greatest laurels in ailments enumerated hereinafter:1) Mental derangements arising from want of nerve or brain power; the
patient is haunted by visions of the past, looks on the dark side of
everything, indulges in gloomy predictions, suffers from illusions of
senses, loss of memory, sleeplessness, sudden hysteria, somnambulism,
nervous dread, grasps at imaginary objects, dreams of fire, robbers,

ghosts or of falling. The patient laughs or cries suddenly. In a nutshell, it


is one of the most wonderful curative remedy for overworked
businessmen, weary females, nervous children.
2) Neuralgic headache, oversensitive to noise, with vertigo or giddiness
on rising, ameliorated by cheerful excitement, gentle motion, and while
eating.
3) Squinting, weakness of sight, drooping of eyelids, light aggravates
symptoms; sensation of sand in the eyes; black spots before eyes; weak
vision after coitus.
4) Itching in ears, with offensive discharge, and supersensitive hearing.
5) Sneezing from the slightest exposure, with thick yellow discharge.
6) Offensive breath, stomatitis, ashy-gray ulcers in mouth.
7) Excessively dry tongue in the morning; very thirsty; mustard-like
coating on the tongue, also smelly.
8) Paralysis of the vocal cords; Gangrenous sore throat.
9) Constant pain at epigastrium in a small spot; putrid gaseous
eructation, nausea soon after eating; drowsiness; these are excellent
indications for this remedy.
10) Cholera with profuse rice-watery stools; painless watery diarrhea;
dysentery when stools consist of pure blood with foul odor.
11) Bronchial asthma, shortness of breath (It was cured with 2x potency

by Dr O. H. Hall, it has been reported.)


12) It acts as a cardiac tonic. It invigorates, revives, strengthens,
soothes, and prevents vital energy from drying up.
13) Amenorrhea with constant dull headache, drowsiness, fidgety feet,
chest difficulties, and depression of spirits. (It was cured with 3x
potency by Dr Royal)
14) Kali Phos is an anti-septic and hinders the decay of tissues
(Boericke & Dewey). Debility and avoidance of decay and putrefaction
are the characteristic features of the remedy.
15) Paralysis of any part of the body and of all varieties, preferably in
alternation with Mag Phos. It is the chief remedy in paralysis.
16) Debilitating high fever with brown, dry tongue and profuse
perspiration, (not to be given in tuberculosis)
17) Morphine Habit; extreme offensiveness.
18) Sciatica in left leg, worse slightest motion. (Extract of a case study
by Dr Martin: A small powder of K.P. 6x was put in half glass of water,
a teaspoonful was given every 10 minutes for an hour, the lady patient
slept well but pain returned next day, gave K.P. 12x every 2 hours, a
small dry powder for a week and thereafter four times a day for a month,
a year passed without returning of the trouble.)
19) It will greatly facilitate labor, if given steadily for one month
previous to the birth. (Chapman)

20) Scorbutic (affected wih deficiency of vitamin C) gangrene (deathly


deterioration of any part of the body caused by interference with blood
supply); septic hemorrhages; septicemia (blood poisoning); phagedenic
chancre (rapidly spreading destructive ulceration).
21) Impotence; the patient may suffer from frequent urging to urinate.
22) Tympanitis in alternation with Mag Phos and Natrum Sulph.
23) Chief remedy in Typhoid, typhus, gastric and enteric fevers with
brown dry tongue, sleeplessness, delirium, foetid odor, excessive
perspiration.
24) Cold air aggravates all pains.
25) Brain-fag from overwork
26) Cerebral anemia
27) Indicated in appendicitis with putrefactive bowels.
Let it be a boon to the weary depressed spirits for instantaneous selfhelp to overcome the ailments as and when they arise.

KALI SULPHURICUM
(POTASSIUM SULPHATE)

Kali Sulph is found in the cells and in the intercellular fluids, muscles,
nerves, epithelium and in the blood corpuscles. Its deficiency causes a
yellow slimy deposit on the tongue, and yellow or greenish secretion
with watery matter from the mucous surfaces.
SALIENT CHARACTERISTICS:
1) It carries oxygen to all tissues of the human body, as does Ferrum
Phos. It also carries organic substances to the cells of the skin.
2) It deals with cells forming the lining of the skin, also deals with the
internal mucous lining of all the organs of the living body.
3) It furnishes vitality to the epithelium (layers of cells covering
cutaneous, mucous and serous surfaces). It is a constituent of scalp.
4) Ferrum Phos cures the first stage of inflammation (dry swelling
without secretion), Kali Mur deals with the second stage (viscous
secretions) adequately, Kali Sulph is curative in the third stage of
inflammatory conditions of bronchitis, pneumonia, whooping cough,
chronic suppurating mucous membrane catarrh (nose, ear, throat,
bronchial tubes, conjunctiva etc), catarrh of the stomach & bowels,
hepatitis (liver inflammation) and nephritis (kidney inflammation) as
well as rheumatic pains of joints and for all processes of excretion &
elimination of toxic matter, when the exudations are yellowish, sticky,

availed of frequently till required.
17) Hypertrophy of prostate gland.
18) There is no remedy so competent for rattling in the chest when that
state has followed an acute attack of inflammation. When a child has
passed through broncho-pneumonia and seems to have recovered and
after every change in the weather to cold the child coughs and rattles in
the chest, then it is that this remedy cures. (Kent)
Significant indication for the selection of Kali Sulph:
a) The patient is sad and fearful of falling; mental exertion aggravates;
he or she is always in a hurry.
b) Condition of the patient worsens in the evening and in warm room.
c) He/she gets relief from ailments in cool fresh air.
d) Rise of temperature in the evening until midnight and then falls.

e) Copious scaling of the scalp.

MAGNESIA PHOSPHORICA
(Magnesium Phosphoricum)
Molecules of phosphate of magnesia exist in the white fibers of the
nerves and muscles of the human body primarily, and are controlled by
the molecular motion of this mineral-salt. When a deficiency of this
mineral-salt occurs, the white fibers contract and cause violent spasms,
cramps, convulsions, colic & contractions in muscles. It corresponds to
pains of all kinds except burning pains. The pains are invariably

spasmodic in character, lightning-like & shooting, accompanied by a


constrictive sensation, often shifting, and are relieved by warm
application, heat, bending double and firm pressure, worse from cold
air/cold water, generally on the right side. Great prostration and
sometimes profuse sweat accompanies the attack.
Mag Phos is purely anti-spasmodic & analgesic. It induces functional
activity of the motor nerves. For quick relief in the case of cramps or
colic, seven grains of Mag Phos in 6x potency is dissolved in half glass
of hot water, stirred often and a sip is taken every 3 minutes, seven
times. It cures.
It suits lean, thin, emaciated, nervous and restless persons, susceptible
to migraines. It lowers the cholesterol level in the blood. Its main
targets are the central nervous system, the peripheral nerves, the muscles
and hollow organs. Mag Phos patient often changes position of
furniture.
Mag Phos is the curative remedy for:
1) Spasms, may be of glottis (vocal apparatus of larynx), cramps in the
calf muscles, tetanus, tonic spasms, chorea (St.Vituss dance, disease of
nervous system which causes spasmodic involuntary movements of face
or other limbs), spasmodic retention of urine. Every muscle of the body
twitches from the eyes to the toes.
Farmers give, with prompt results, Magnesia Phosphorica for cramp
colic and flatulent colic of horses, and for acute flatulent distension
(meteorism) of cattle. (Schussler)
2) Flatulent colic of children and new-born.

3) Paroxysmal cough in children and watery diarrhea with body-ache.


4) Whooping cough (best in 200x potency)
5) Membranous dysmenorrhea, flow dark, clotted, intermittent.
6) Yawning and shivering, involuntary motion of hands, if spasmodic.
7) Lock-Jaw; should also be rubbed into the gums frequently.
8) Goiter; chronic enlargement of thyroid gland.
9) Obstinate gastralgia; 2x potency preferable
10) Loss of sense of smell, or perversion of the sense of smell under
certain conditions, not connected with cold; a course of this remedy
helps. (Schussler)

12) Spasmodic stammering.
13) True spasmodic cough.
14) Paralysis in alternation with Kali Phos.
15) Obstinate singultus (hiccup)
16) Cancer (one of the chief remedies, rather high potencies, single
doses, then low and repeated ones.) (Dr Med. Eric Graf Von Der
Goltz); let it be alternated with Calcarea Phos.

17) Colic around umbilical region; it stops the desire for chocolates.
18) Toothache, sharp, shooting, spasmodic, when heat relieves, cold
aggravates; cannot brush with cold water.
19) Asthma when flatulence troubles.
20) Angina Pectoris, spasmodic palpitation of the heart; apex beat
visible from the clothing; constriction in chest
21) Hypertrophy of the prostate gland.
(9)
NATRUM MURIATICUM
(Sodium Chloride)
Human body is composed of about 70% water which will be useless if
there is deficiency of Natrum Mur.
It is a constituent of fluids and solids of the body. It regulates moisture
within the cells. It is a carrier of moisture to each and every cell of the
body. It attracts the water for distribution in the organism and to build
up and carry on the functions of life whereas Natrum Sulph attracts the
water which is in excess to eliminate it from the organism. Dryness of
some mucous membranes and copious watery discharge from others are
consequential to deficiency of sodium chloride (Natrum Mur).
Besides, Natrum Mur regulates the osmotic pressure, and keeps acid
base balance. It assists in formation of new cells. It stimulates the
formation of red blood corpuscles. Sodium unites with carbonic acid

and enters the blood as sodium carbonate. The dissolved chlorine


becomes Hydrochloric acid and helps in curing dyspepsia.
The tongue has clean and shiny appearance with bubbles of saliva.
There may be violent thirst for large quantities of water and a longing
for salty food and aversion to bread.
Natrum Mur is also useful in:1) It is the chief remedy for sunstroke; 12x potency to be used.
2) Muscular asthenopia (weak/ painful vision); no better remedy.
3) Hammering headache worse morning; hemicrania.
4) Roaring in ears, cracking when chewing.
5) Loss of smell and taste with coryza.

11) Backache relieved by lying on something hard; uterine troubles
relieved by lying on back on a pillow; spinal irritation with rigidity of

muscles.
12) The patient dreams of robbers in the house.
13) Effects of insect-bites. (Moisten the spot and apply thereto Natrum
Mur in 6x potency, rubbing it in, pain ceases. This external application
cures rapidly.)
14) Anemia & chlorosis, after Ferrum Phos and Calcarea Phos have
been given.
15) Aphthae with flow of saliva, alternate with Kali Mur.
16) Indigestion with watery vomiting.
17) Diarrhea alternating with constipation.
18) Neuralgic nerve pains.
19) Hay fever
20) Eczema with white scales; eczema on eyebrows.

and scrotum with acrid discharge.
26) Intermittent fever after the abuse of quinine and by living in damp
region; thirst before and during the chill.
27) Sterility.
28) Leukemia (blood cancer); in the opinion of Dr Willmar Schwabe It
has favorable effect on deficient blood composition. Dr E. P. Anshutz
has written that It has proved curative in Leukemia.
29) Chronic facial eczema.
30) Pleurisy with watery exudations.
31) If the patient consumes salt and alcohol excessively, he requires it
for reducing this craving considerably.
32) Painful constriction of hamstrings with emaciated limbs.
33) Abundant leucorrhoea with unnatural dryness of vagina.
The patient tires easily, and loses weight. He/she is chilly and often
suffers from cold, and the breath is foetid. Fatigue, exhaustion,
readiness to shed tears, weak memory and increased salivation are
typical signs of a patient of Natrum Mur. Complaints develop slowly.
The patient is better in open air, evening, by fasting or sitting; worse
sea-shore, morning, heat of the sun; consolation also aggravates.

(10)
NATRUM PHOSPHORICUM
(SODIUM PHOSPHATE)
Natrum Phos creates water and removes acid condition of the blood and
cures diseases which are caused by acidity.
It is anti-acid. It cures sour belching, sour vomiting, sour sweats, and
sour stools.
It splits up lactic acid into carbonic acid and water, and eliminates
carbonic acid through lungs. It is therefore the remedy for ailments
arising from excess of lactic acid. It prevents inspissation of the bile
and mucus with crystallization of cholesterin in the gall duct and will
thus remove the cause of many cases of jaundice, hepatic colic, bilious
headache and imperfect assimilation of fats from lack of bile. It is useful
in podagra, gout, as well as in acute and chronic articular rheumatism,
being thus a remedy for the so-called acid diathesis (Boericke &
Dewey). For Jaundice 1x trituration may be used.
It eliminates excess sugar from the blood. So it helps in curing diabetes

in alternation with Natrum Sulph.


It does oxidation of uric acid into urea for elimination by the kidneys. It
eliminates metabolic end products.
The patient may imagine on waking at night that pieces of furniture are
persons, may get annoyed on trivial matters, may fall asleep while
sitting, may sees sparks before eyes, may suffer from roaring in ears,
grinding of teeth due to intestinal worms, itching all over the body like
insect bites.
It is the chief remedy in cystitis (inflammation of urinary bladder).
It is the principal remedy in scrofulous glands & tuberculosis.
Besides, it also cures:
1) Sterility if it is associated with acid secretions.
2) Gastric troubles which cause flatulence, headache and giddiness.
3) Morphine habit.
4) Acute rheumatism/gout/arthritis when associated with uric acid
diathesis.
5) Habitual constipation if associated with occasional diarrhea.
6) Morning sickness of pregnancy.
7) Symptoms worse evening and during thunderstorm.

8) Eye inflammation of infants.


9) Fiery sparks before eyes.
10) Violent eye pains caused by rheumatism.
11) Aphthae when of yellow color.
12) Vomiting of sour cheesy masses.
13) Gout resulting from alcoholism.
14) Low fevers/bilious fevers/fevers with acid symptoms.
15) First stage of gonorrhea.
16) Loss of appetite.
17) Nausea/Vomiting with sour risings.
18) Seminal emissions without dreams.
19) Travelling sickness.
20) Goiter
21) Squinting caused by irritation from worms.
22) Gastric derangements during teething.

23) Worms of all kinds with symptoms of picking the nose, itching at
the anus, acidity of the stomach, restless sleep etc.
24) Eczema with acid creamy yellow secretions.
25) Fever with vomiting of sour fluids and sour-smelling sweat.
26) Dyspepsia traceable to fats; it emulsifies fatty acids.
27) Spinal anemia
28) It stimulates metabolism to excrete excessive acids through kidneys.
29) It reduces the desire for fatty foods, ice-cream, pastries, sweets,
pickled foods, vinegar.
30) It treats nephritis very well, also tonsillitis, pharyngitis and
conjunctivitis.
Moist creamy coating or golden yellow coating at the back part of the
tongue is the keynote of Natrum Phos.
The symptoms get aggravated by motion, greasy food, bath, and moistcold weather, also between 1 & 3 p. m.; the patient feels better while
sitting and during rest.

(11)
NATRUM SULPHURICUM
(Sodium Sulphate)
Natrum Sulph appears in the intercellular fluids. It eliminates the
superfluous water formed during the retrogressive metamorphosis of the
cells; it removes metabolic wastes, de-toxicates the organism, and
stimulates the bile flow as it has good effect on the cells and the nerves
of bile ducts, intestines and pancreas. It increases the secretion of
pancreatic fluid, so if diabetes mellitus is caused by a lessened secretion
of pancreatic juice, it is the remedy.
People with deficiency of this salt are liable to malarial affections as
they are not able to remove excess water from the blood. It is therefore
the chief remedy for malarial, intermittent, yellow fevers, dropsy,
edematous erysipelas, moist eczema, humid asthma, hydraemia, dengue,
spinal meningitis, uric acid diathesis.
Natrum Sulph takes away water from worn-out leucocytes, and thereby
accomplishes their disintegration. It is, therefore, the remedy for
leucaemia. (Boericke and Dewey) This cell-salt possesses natural
affinity for oxygen & water and so helps in acquiring true health.

The chief characteristic of Natrum Sulph is a dirty greenish-gray or


greenish-brown coating on the root of the tongue and aggravation from
lying on the left side.
The patients are worse from wet weather, dampness, moisture, and better
in dry and warm atmosphere.
Besides, Natrum Sulph has proved curative in:
1) Mental troubles from injury to the head. The patient may be of
wild nature with suicidal tendency. Music aggravates ailments.
2) Headache on top of the head with giddiness and hot feeling.
The patient strikes his head against any hard substance.
3) Burning of the edges of the eyelids worse in the morning and
near the fire.
4) Ringing in the ears as of bells.
5) Nosebleed before and during menses. Menses profusely acrid
and corrosive.

the mouth although patients always feel chilly, and cannot get
warm even in bed at night.
7) Secretions are watery and yellowish-green or green.
8) Loose morning stools worse in cold wet weather.
9) Hydrocele; itching of genitals.
10)
Hands and feet twitch during sleep.

Predisposition to gall bladder, liver diseases, and jaundice of
bilious type, frequent flatulent colic. Rheumatism with
biliousness. Pains around hips & knees.
18)

22)
Ulcerated sore throat with green vomiting and constant
nausea.
23)
Low fevers.
24)
Vomiting of pregnancy.
25)
Kidney disorders; chronic gonorrhoea and sycosis; sandy
deposits in urine; urine with excessive uric acid; sugar in urine.
26)
It has an anti-inflammatory effect.
27) It stimulates the excretion of inflammatory substances.
28) It reduces craving for bitter foods.
29) It saves us from bacterial and flu-viral attacks.
30) It acts as a gentle cleansing remedy for all cells and helps us to
defy the burden of winter.
31) For prolonged ulceration, even after use of antibiotics, it has
given very good results.
32) Syphilitic condylomata.
33) Sciatica when getting up from sitting or turning in bed, no relief
in any position.

Before concluding the article, if I narrate below a clinical report in


asthma from exertion, it may be of interest to the readers:
Mr C. has for years had an attack of asthmatic breathing, so marked as
to herald his approach at some distance, and coming on after any
unusual exercise. He is a tall, strong man, with no history of long
trouble, albeit rather narrow-chested. Examination of the lungs during a
period of remission disclosed no lesion or abnormal sounds, except
coarse rales along the larger bronchi. An especially severe attack,
brought on by severe physical exertion, the worst spell he has ever
had, was promptly relieved by Natr. Sulph., and occasional doses since
have caused the attacks to disappear almost entirely for the first time in
many summers (Wm. E. Leonard, M.D.).

(12)
SILICEA
(Silicic Acid)
The epidermis of wheat and other cereals contain Silicea. Eating whole
grain products provides the normal need for this mineral-salt.
Silicea suits the person whose connective tissues are weak to react to
infections, and whose skin does not heal easily. It is a constitutional
remedy. It enhances the power of resistance. It assists in assimilation of
calcium from the food. It does calcium metabolism. It stimulates the
phagocytes to fight infections. It helps in the formation of proteins in
the bones. It lowers the uric acid in the blood.
A deficiency of Silicea causes a deficiency of an essential nutrient of the
brain and nerves, evidencing poor memory, difficult thinking process,
absent-mindedness.
Urate of soda deposited in arthritic joints is dissolved by Silicea.
Silicea is a remedy if skin heals with difficulty and suppurates easily. It
cures septic and fistulous infections. It ripens abscesses since it
promotes suppuration. Calcarea Sulph heals suppurating wounds as it
restrains suppuration. It follows Silicea well in suppurating processes.

Silicea is known as SURGICAL TISSUE REMEDY. It is a remedy for


suppurating, rattling, loose, copious expectoration of thick, yellowgreen pus with hectic fever, profuse night sweat and great debility;
suppurating stage of pneumonia.
Silicea cures chronic gouty rheumatic affections by means of its
stimulating effects of the involved connective tissue cells, compelling
these to throw off the accumulated urates through the lymphatics
(Boericke & Dewey).
In addition to the above, Silicea has proved curative in:
1) Menses with icy cold feeling all over.
2) Headache from the occiput towards eyes, better from wrapping up
warmly.
3) Sweating on the hairy parts of the head, and on the feet; the sweat is
cold, sour and smelly.
4) Frequent meteorism (swelling of the abdomen owing presence of gas)
5) Obstipation (severe constipation); stools comprising of hard balls
almost impossible to expel; stools recede after having partially expelled.
6) Alopecia
7) Spinal irritation, nausea, spasmodic acrid leucorrhea, ameliorated by
heat.
8) Asthma of stone workers.

9) Chronic cystitis.
10) Stony hard tumors in abdomen.
11) Hydrocele
12) For Cancer, after Kali Sulph & Natrum Mur have been
administered.
13) Hip-joint disease.
14) Anal fistula, fissure in anus, boils, carbuncles, cataract, styes,
whitlows, and abscesses.
15) Varicose veins, piles; in alternation with Calcarea Fluor.
16) Diseases of the nails (brittle nails, ingrowing nails, ribbed nails) and
hair.
17) Ulceration and necrosis of bones.
18) Nipples crack and ulcerate; child refuses milk or vomits as soon as
taken.
19) Urine loaded with pus and mucus.
20) Toothache, very violent at night, when neither heat nor cold gives
relief.
21) Tonic spasm of the hand when writing; painful tonic spasm in the

feet and toes during a long walk.


22) It promotes cartilage regeneration.
23) It improves skin and de-acidifies the connective tissues.
24) Nodes on scrotum in tertiary syphilis.
Modalities: Ailments worse from cold, in the evening, at night, and from
noise or movement and during new/full moon, better from warmth and
wrapping up.

SIGNIFICANT
ADDITIONAL

REMEDIES
AS ENUNCIATED BY
DR MED. ERIC GRAF VON DER GOLTZ
&
T. F. ALLEN
&
OTHER FAMOUS SCIENTISTS

SIGNIFICANT ADDITIONAL TISSUE REMEDIES

Before I deal with the subject, I am inclined to quote below a statement


of Dr N. M. Jaisoorya, M.D., Member of Parliament, from The
Homoeopathic Bulletin, Sep. 52, page 107, as it appears in 40 Tissue
Remedies by N. Kodanda Ramaiah:I have seen it done in one district where a dozen relatively trained
men armed with tissue remedies are working miracles and, as a
result, Government allopathic dispensaries running empty of
patients.
The incidence occurred when the cellular therapy of Dr Schussler was
equipped with 12 Tissue Remedies only. The knowledge of mineral
elements, vital to human body, has not remained stationary. It has
progressed. According to Hoeber, Openheimer and Stocklasa, the noted
scientists, the hereinafter mentioned elements also take part in the buildup of the human body:(Aluminum, Arsenic, Borax, Bromine, Copper, Iodine, Lithium,
Manganese, Plumbum, Radium, Selenium, Vanadium and Zinc)

It is therefore evident that with the enlarged sphere of tissue remedies,


limitation of effectiveness, if any, vanishes, even in incurable diseases.

themselves while the combustion process is going on of cells, nerves,
etc. (Dr N. Kodanda Ramaiah). They throw off Carbonic acid, destroy
foreign matter from the system and keep the function of the body
regular. This self-clearing function or in other sense resistance power is
named as INTERNAL DOCTOR. The Sulphur patient has grubby
hands.
Some Symptoms:
a) It has great affinity for the skin. No other remedy has more positive
and persistent action upon the skin than Sulphur.
b) It is indicated in all sorts of skin eruptions; vesicular, pustular etc;
itching, severe burning, worse scratching and washing. Itching from
warmth often recurs in spring-time and in damp weather; burning in
soles and hands at night; sweat smells like garlic.

c) Constant heat on top of head


d) The patient likes sweets but not during fever.
e) When carefully-selected remedies fail, it works.

(105) SULPHUR IODATUS


It works on glands, kidneys, uvula, skin and bladder. If other remedies
fail, it cures.
Clinical Observation:
a) Inflammation of uvula, tonsils, testicles
b) Chronic skin diseases
c) Weeping eczema

(106) TELLURIUM

b) Pain in chest, worse touch
c) Craving for apples
(107) VANADIUM
Coconut water contains vanadium.

It acts on brain, blood, liver and kidneys.


Like Ferrum Phos, it is an oxygen carrier. It is a catalyst. It increases
amount of hemoglobin, and removes anemia. It destroys virulence of
toxins. It anti-dotes the action of poison. It enhances phagocytes, and
stimulates them. It stops bloody urine. It acts as a tonic. It furthers
digestive function. It lowers tuberculosis, chronic rheumatism and
diabetes effects. It corrects tissue waste. It induces quiet, reposeful and
refreshing sleep. It diminishes hopelessness of the patient.

(108) Zinc Bromatum


Clinical Indication:
a) Chorea
b) Hydrocephalus
c) It also helps in dentition

(109) ZINCUM CHLORATUM


Hormone Histamine (white crystalline substance in tissues in very small
amounts which have diverse effect on muscles, capillaries, gastric
secretions) is released from the mast cells, and may trigger allergic

reaction on the skin such as itching, redness, mucus formation and


swelling. Zinc and Calcium stabilize the mast cells and eliminate allergy
and neuro-dermatitis. It is the core element which helps in elimination
of toxic heavy metals such as lead, cadmium and mercury and regulates
acid secretion from the human body. It cures allergies and dermatitis. It
may be used in 6x potency.
(110) ZINCUM METALLICUM
(ZINC)
It is an essential trace element for keeping the skeleton intact. It
activates bone formation through the osteoblasts (the bone forming cells
which control bone structure and favor mineralization. It also checks the
cells which cause damage to the bones. Besides Zinc, manganese and
copper fluorine are also required for a healthy bone metabolism.
WHAT IRON IS TO BLOOD, ZINC IS TO NERVE (BURT).

(35)
Cervical Spondylitis
Remedies:
1) Phosphoric Acid 1x, twice a day one drop in water after meals for a few
months: It suits best to persons who had strong constitution, but have become
very weak by loss of vital fluids; mental debility first, physical later. The
patient is apathetic, indifferent, and listless. It is the principal remedy for
cervical spondylitis; inflammation of vertebrae with tearing pains at night as if
joints/bones scraped with a knife. There may be paralytic weakness of spine
and boring pain between scapulae. Pains are better by warmth.
2)Calcarea Phos 6x and Mag Phos 6x, each 5 tablets twice a day in lukewarm
water alternately: This alternation will cover rheumatic pain and stiffness of
neck, cramp-like pain in neck and around shoulder blades, spinal curvature,
neuralgic pains with sensation in the limbs resembling electric shocks,
relieved by heat, aggravated by cold.
3) Calcarea Fluor & Kali Mur both in 12x potency four times daily for one
month
(36)
Chicken-pox
(Acute contagious disease occurring usually in children with fever accompanied by sparse eruption of
papules, which turn into vesicles and thereafter into pustules; incubation period being 14 to 18 days.)
Signs & Symptoms:
a) The rash usually appears within 24 hours of the onset.

b) In 38 to 48 hours it turns into pustules.


c) By the 4th day the pustules shrivel and form crusts.
d) Pains in the back, vomiting, pyrexia are milder than in small pox.

Remedies: (The same remedies are very good for Small-pox also. It has been eradicated. So we have
not dealt with it separately.)
2) Ferrum Phos 3x: The treatment may be commenced with Ferrum Phos, which alone may
serve the purpose. It may be alternated with Kali Mur 3x, 2 hourly, when vesicles open and if
white coated tongue is seen, as the basic cause of chicken-pox is a deficiency of the
inorganic salt Kali Mur. When the skin is dry, rough, hot or when desquamation sets in,
alternate Kali Sulph 6x with Ferrum Phos.
3) If the pustules become purulent Calcarea Sulphurica is indicated. Should symptoms of
adynamia and of decomposition of the blood arise, Kali Phosphoricum is to be given. When
the pustules are confluent Natrum Muriaticum is called for Dr Schussler.
Preventive of Chicken-pox, Small-pox:
Kali Mur 3x twice daily for a week.

(37)
Chikungunya
(It is a relatively rare form of viral fever. The symptoms include headache, conjunctivial infection,
slight photophobia, high fever, a petechial or maculopapular rash and crippling pains affecting
multiple joints.)

Remedy:
Bio-combination No.28 of SBL or Schwabe, 4 hourly for a fortnight may be quite useful.
Remarks: Chikungunya is a dangerous disease. If condition does not improve despite
medication, hospitalization is a must.

(38)
Cholera:
(Highly infectious intestinal disease characterized by bilious vomiting, diarrhea, sudden loss of fluid,
scanty urine, weak pulse and drastic fall of blood pressure, abdominal pains and cramps. The
discharge from the bowels resembles rice-water. The patient should be urged to drink hot water as
much as possible conveniently. A half teaspoonful of salt should be added to each quart of water.)
Remedies:
2. Cuprum Met 6x or 12x: The tongue of the patient protrudes and retracts like that of a
snake. Nausea is greater than in any other remedy. Summer causes cholera with
cyanosis, severe colic, spasms and cramps in abdomen, also in calves, and soles.
Vomiting is relieved by drinking cold water. First few doses may be given half
hourly.
3. Arsenic Alb 12x: It is a very good remedy for cholera, which is caused by
consumption of decayed food, spoiled meat. It may be due to injurious effects of
watery fruits. Intense agony, prostration, and burning thirst characterize cholera.
Mentally restless, physically too weak to move. Great thirst for cold water, drinks
often but little at a time; burning pains; the affected parts burn like coals of fire; body
cold as ice; craves milk, coffee, acids. Symptoms generally worse 1-2 p.m., 12-2
a.m. Three doses half hourly may be good enough.
4. Kali Phos 6x: It is a specific Biochemic medicine against cholera. Dr Schussler
himself has cited a case of an old person who was attacked by severe vomiting and
diarrhoea, accompanied by exceedingly painful cramps in calves, low pulse and
rice-water discharges. Kali Phos cured. Four or five doses consisting of 5 grains
may be given every 5/10 minute in hot water, as may be required.
5. Cholera Infantum frequently appears among teething children in summer, due to
deficiency of Calcarea Phos which may be given in 6th trituration, 2 tablets thrice a
day in hot water. If febrile symptoms appear, it may be alternated with Ferrum Phos
6x. During attack the child should not have any milk; food also should be as less as
possible. As soon as it recovers, barley water with a little cream and warm water
are recommended.
6. Natrum Sulph 3x acts as a preventive of cholera as it regulates the water in the blood
and should be taken in hot water. A deficiency of sodium chloride leads to cholera.
So Natrum Mur 3x may also be needed.
7. Cuprum Acet 3x: In case any person in the family or nearby is already suffering from
cholera, the other members should take one dose in the morning, the other dose in the
evening daily for 5 days for prevention of the disease.
(39)
CHOLESTEROL
It helps in digestion of food. It helps in production of hormones and vitamin D. It occurs

in the body naturally. There are two forms basically: i) Low density lipoprotein (LDL),
ii) High density lipoprotein (HDL).
LDL forms fatty deposits which clog up the arteries, and form blood clot. So it is known
as bad cholesterol. For prevention of heart attack, the level of cholesterol must be
lowered. HDL is good as it reaches liver wherefrom it is eliminated. Oats reduce blood
cholesterol. Soya bean reduces bad cholesterol.
Remedies:
a) Ferrum Phos 3x thrice a day: It is needed to establish normal circulation of blood and
to remove complications arising from excessive action of heart. It is an excellent remedy
for children and old people in alternation with Calcarea Phos 6x and occasional dose of
Kali Sulph 12x.
b) Kali Mur 6x: For that condition of blood which leads to the formation of clots, let it
be alternated with Ferrum Phos to eliminate circulatory disturbances.

(40)
Chorea (St. Vitus dance)
(Involuntary twitching, contortions & movements of the muscles of face and other limbs; It usually
occurs in children, especially girls due to deficiency of the cell-salt, Mag Phos.)

Signs & Symptoms:


a)
b)
c)
d)

Involuntary movements cause the child to drop things and make faces.
Chorea often affects one side of the body.
Weakness of the affected side is extreme
A rapid protrusion and withdrawal of the tongue may occur.

Remedies:
1) Mag Phos: It is the chief remedy. For your precise appraisal, we cite
hereby three case records:
i)

Face and upper part of body affected; lateral and

downward jerking of the mouth, snapping of eyelids, sudden forward


motion of head, and other irregular movements. Better during sleep,
aggravated at stool and by emotions, Ignatia failed. Mag Phos 6x, for
three months, produced gratifying results, but did not fully cure.
Acting on Dr Schusslers advice, Calcarea Phos. 6x was given
alternately with Magnesia Phos; the former once daily, the latter
twice. In one month the child was cured. (D.B. Whitter, M.D.)
ii)
The patient talking to herself constantly, or sitting still in
moody silence, or carrying things from one place to another and then
back again. Magnesia Phos 12x cured.
iii)
A girl of 6 years was admitted to the London Homoeopathic
Hospital she had suffered from well-marked chorea during the
preceding eight monthsOn admission she twitched all over during
her waking hours, but was quite during sleep. She walked fairly well
and could feed herself, but her speech was exceedingly defective
Magnesia Phos was prescribed-two grains of the sixth trituration,
three times daily. The improvement which followed was slow, but
abundantly manifest.
2) Cuprum Met 12x: It may be given three times daily for a week. It is
curative in jerking & twitching of muscles; cramps in palms, calves and soles;
tonic spasms. The pains increase by touch and movement, better by drinking
cold milk.

(41)

It is characterized by
a) Necrosis of hepatic cells
b) Fibrosis
c) Nodular regeneration
d) Abnormalities of the hepatic circulation
e) Alcohol accounts for most cases of cirrhosis of liver
f) Cirrhosis of liver may be in consequence of attacks of virus hepatitis

Remedies:
i)

Arsenic Alb 12x: It should be given in alternation with Ferrum

Phos 6x every 3 hour for some days. It is likely to take care of the
cirrhosis of liver.
ii)
Manganum Sulph 6x or 12x three times daily for 7/10 days: It
functions as a catalyser. It plays a significant part in producing hematin.
It is very good for liver affections. It deals with excess of bile
adequately. It is a powerful intestinal stimulant.
iii)
Calcarea Fluor & Silicea both in 6x potency in alternation
every two hours for a month or so: this treatment is quite good to cure
abscess of liver and pain in right hypochondrium.

(42)
Colic
(Severe pain in abdomen caused by spasm of intestines)
Remedies:
Mag Phos 6x: It is good for colic of newborn infants, also for flatulent colic of children. Use one
tablet in two ounce of lukewarm water and give the child one teaspoonful every ten minutes. Relief
would come before the third dose. It gives relief from gas also. Pains are worse right side and from
cold, better warm application and bending double.
Calcarea Phos 6x thrice a day for some days: If Mag Phos, although indicated, fails to give relief, in
respect of colic of any kind, follow the treatment with Calcarea Phos. It is needed to promote
assimilation of food in case colic is caused by indigestion. It is also useful to teething children in
colic with greenish evacuation.
Natrum Sulph 6x daily three times for a week: The symptoms comprise of flatulent colic with
vomiting of bile, bitter taste in the mouth and brownish-green coating on root of the tongue. In lead
colic, give it frequently in the 1X or 2X trituration.

Irritation of the eyes


Eyeballs look fiery red
Sticky discharge, initially white or yellowish, later thick, brown and corrosive
Eyes water frequently

Remedies:
1) Ferrum Phos 6x: It reduces inflammation and redness of the eyes, burning sensation and
watering considerably. It deals with acute conjunctivitis adequately. It removes sensation as if
grains of sand were under the eyelids. A few doses should be taken hourly.
2) Kali Mur 6x every two hour for two days: It is good for all eye affections when discharging
thick white mucus. It should be alternated with Kali Sulph 6x if the discharge consists of yellow
or greenish matter.
3) Natrum Sulph 6x every two hour for two/three days: It helps in curing chronic conjunctivitis
with yellowness of the conjunctiva and large blister-like granulations on the lids.

(44)
Constipation
Condition of delayed or difficult or deficient movements of the bowels is constipation.
Precaution, suggestion, also signs & symptoms:
a) It affects nearly everyone at some time or the other
b) One should inculcate daily habit of passing stools from childhood
c) If neglected, one suffers from constipation. So it is psychological
d) People lose the reflex action if they try to control Natures Call or avoid using toilet due
to insanitary conditions.
e) Irregular distribution of water in the digestive and intestinal tracts leads to constipation
f) Disturbance in the nervous mechanism
g) Intestinal/mechanical obstruction of the bowel

h) Insufficient exercise
i) Foods deficient in the natural mineral salts
j) Lack of sodium sulphate, sodium phosphate, sodium chloride, potassium chloride
k) Lack of tone of the colon muscle and of the villi of the intestine
l) Rectal disturbance needing manual evacuation
m) Diet should include fresh fruits, green vegetables, dried fruits such as prunes, plenty of
fluids, raw fruit juices and water

Remedies:
1) Alumina 6x or 12x: For constipation of infants and old persons, it may be given twice a day
for utmost seven days. Even a soft stool is passed after great straining. There may be pain in
back, arm and fingers as if hot iron penetrated.
2) Silicea 6x or 12x: We cite a case-record of Dr I.P. Johnson: Mother of three children;
constipation since birth of last child, three months ago. Cathartics had failed. The stools were
hard and dry, were partially expelled with much straining, and then receded into the rectum.
Silicea cured in four doses, taken night and morning. Calcarea Fluor 6x or 12x may be taken
with Silicea. Inability to expel feces requires its administration.
3) Kali Mur 6x: In the case of torpid liver and deficiency of bile, Dr J. B. Chapman prescribed
a ten-grain dose each evening, next morning there was a natural evacuation. Satisfactory results
were obtained by continuity of this treatment.
4) Natrum Mur 3x every 2 hours for 4/5 days: Dryness of the mucous linings of the bowels, with
watery secretions from other tissues such as excess of saliva, tears from eyes etc and hard dry
black stools need use of this remedy persistently.
5) Carbolic Acid 6x, twice a day for 7/10 days: Constipation with very offensive odor; stools
black and putrid with great tenesmus, and fermentative dyspepsia. Terrible pains come and
vanish suddenly.
6) Carbo Veg 12x, thrice a day for a week: Much flatulence with colic; burning sensation, also
cough & coryza; food putrifies before it is digested.
Remarks: Purgatives and laxatives containing medicinal paraffin oil are detrimental to the bowel

heels; feet very tender; tongue coated thick white as if whitewashed; no thirst; headache with
great loss of hair; amelioration after warm bath; to be given four times daily for one month.
2) Calcarea Fluorica 12x: In case corns are very hard, and painful, let it be taken 4 hourly;
follows Antim Crudum very well.
3) Kali Mur 6x and Silicea 6x: For sore soft inflamed corns, which form repeatedly, both
remedies should be taken three times daily. In corns if the pain is stabbing, stinging,
lancinating, and there is itching also, Mag Phos 6x is needed in hot water thrice daily.

(46)
Coryza
(Common cold with inflammation of mucous membrane)
Remedies:
a) To remove predisposition to take cold, Ferrum Phos 3x & Calcarea Phos 3x should be
taken in two hourly alternation for some days. A lack of ferrum molecules in the blood is the
cause of colds.
b) If the fibrinous exudation is thrown off through the nasal passages, it is called catarrh.
In the stage of acute nasal catarrh, dry coryza, stuffy cold, and burning dryness, Kali Mur 6x
has proved to be the most satisfactory remedy, when taken two hourly.
c) Natrum Mur 12x: We cite a case-record from a book by Dr George W. Carey, M.D.: A
lady of 48 years suffered from coryza which appeared twice a week, lasted one or two
daysalways worse from 10 to 12 a. m. The discharge was watery and so profuse that she
was compelled to use a towel instead of a handkerchief. Everything cool brought relief. Wet
weather, fog, wet feet, warmth and a warm room aggravated the condition. The attack was
accompanied by sneezing that could be heard throughout the house she received Natr. Mur,
five powders, one to be taken every third evening Subsequently the same remedy was
prescribed, a powder once a weekwith most satisfactory results.

d) Arsenic Alb 12x or 30x: Thin watery excoriating discharge; sneezing without relief,
worse wet weather, better warm drinks; 3 hourly three days may be good enough.

(47)
Cough
(Cough indicates sudden and noisy expulsion of air from the lungs. Theoretically, it is not a
disease. It is an abnormal condition, which if not rectified timely, may cause serious
consequences.)

Remedies:
a)
Kali Mur 6x: Loud noisy cough accompanied by wheezing rales with
expectoration of thick milky white tenacious phlegm and white or grayish white
coating of the tongue and persistent hoarseness. It should be given four hourly.
b) Ferrum Phos 6x: For acute short painful tickling cough without expectoration, it
is very useful, if given 2 hourly. One should abstain from giving it in the evening as
that is its aggravation period. In case, with every cough, there is emission of urine, it
cures speedily. If need be, it may be alternated with Kali Mur advantageously.
c) Magnesia Phos 6x, hourly five doses in lukewarm water: It is the remedy for true
spasmodic cough which occurs in paroxysms without expectoration. Hot drinks give
temporary relief. Tongue usually is clean. The condition is worse on lying down and
at night, better on sitting up and warm drinks.

d) Hepar Sulph 12x or 30x: The patient gets afflicted with hoarse croupy choking
cough whenever any part of the body is uncovered; loses voice and coughs when
exposed to dry cold wind while walking. It is worse in morning. Let it be taken 4
hourly for four/five days.
e) Antim Tart 12x: Great rattling of mucus, but little expectoration is a guiding
symptom. Drowsiness, debility, sweat and irresistible inclination to sleep accompany
the ailment. Cough and dyspnoea better lying on right side, eructation and sitting erect.
Three doses may be given half hourly.

Suggestion: Grapes tone up the lungs and act as expectorants. A cup of grape juice mixed with a

teaspoon of honey gives cough relief in a couple of days.

(48)
Cramps
(Spasmodic involuntary painful contraction of muscles from sudden chill or strain)
Remedies:

1) Cuprum Met 6x or 12x: Spasms and cramps in abdomen, calves of legs, soles,
palms. Flexor types of cramps are usually noticed with great weariness of limbs.
Clonic spasms begin in fingers and toes. Three doses 4 hourly to be given.
2) Cuprum Ars 3: Cramps in calves of legs, worse after midnight, only relieved
by getting out of bed and standing. It may be given every four hour, one or two
days.
3) Magnesia Phos 6x: It is excellent for spasms of every kind in any part of the
body. There may be a sensation in limbs like a shock of electricity. Cramps in calf
muscles. Writers cramp. It cures convulsion, twitching, contraction, cramps, fits,
etc., when frequent doses are given in hot water. For quick relief in the case of
cramps and spasms, half a teaspoon of Mag Phos is dissolved in a cup of hot water
(stirred often) and a sip is taken every 5 minute, seven times. Subsequently, Calcarea
Phos 6x should be alternated every 2 hour to prevent recurrence of spasms &
cramps. This alternation cures Lockjaw also.
4) Calcarea Phos 6x: We cite a very interesting case. Dr Fechtmann was called to
see a lady who had been suffering for nearly five weeks from fearful attacks of
convulsive spasms. During the last 24 hours she had had thirty attacks. The spasms
darted through her body like an electric shock, so that she fell to the ground. The
attack lasted a few minutes, after which she felt well enough, but rather exhausted
Knowing that Magnes. Phos and Calc. Phos are the two prescribed for allaying
spasms (cramp), I chose the latter, Calc. Phos., under the circumstances. Next day, to
the astonishment of those about her, I found the old lady walking about the room. She
met me with a smile, exclaiming: Ah, doctor, my spasms are cured! And so it was.
She has not had another attack.

(49)
Dengue
(Infectious eruptive fever causing acute pains in joints and back with stiffness of patients neck &
shoulders, and biphasic febrile episode, severe headache, myalgia (muscular pains) and
morbilliform rash. Female mosquito aedes aegypti causes dengue which is also known as break
bone fever. First day flashes of heat on face, skin acquires red appearance. Sixth day the patient
suffers from morbilliform rash which resembles that of measles.)

Remedies:
1) Arsenic Alb 12x or 30x: High temperature may be due to G. I. Tract infection.
Septic fevers. Great prostration with mental restlessness. Fear of death, thinks it is
useless to take medicine, afraid of loneliness, burning pains; affected parts burn like
coals of fire, drinks often but little at a time, complaints worse after midnight, upon lying
down, at seashore, better from heat & warm drinks. This remedy acts on every organ and
tissue profoundly. Excellent results are seen in the case of abuse of alcohol, injurious
effects of watery fruits, cold drinks, ice cream, spoiled meat, decayed food. It may be
given 3 hourly for 3/5 days.
2) Bio Combination No. 11: It is useful when taken 4 hourly. It consists of Ferrum Phos,
Kali Mur, Natrum Mur, Kali Sulph and Natrum Sulph in 3x potency. Ferrum Phos and
Natrum Sulph in alteration also work. Ars Alb may be given simultaneously.
Note:
All symptoms may not appear at a time. So the layman has to apply medicine based on a few
salient features only. No worry, even then.

Security:
The intake of these tiny atoms is safe against assault of disease force upon vital force of the
human body inasmuch as application thereof is indicated in viral or bacterial influenza,
intermittent, remittent, scarlet, gastric fevers, dengue, measles, smallpox, heart affections

including Angina Pectoris etc.

(50)

Diabetes Mellitus
(Steady accumulation of sugar in blood due to degeneration of the islands of Langerhans in the
pancreas causing insulin deficiency characterized by excessive glucose-charged urine, thirst, &
emaciation.)
Remedies:
1) Natrum Sulph 6x: Diabetes Mellitus of nervous origin is cured by treatment with Natrum
Sulph and Mag Phos, both 6x, in alternation every two hour for a week (E. A. de Cailhol,
M.D.). It is the chief remedy. Deficiency of the pancreatic secretion may be the reason
according to Schussler. It eliminates excess water from the blood and the blood serum.
2) Bio combination No.7, four times a day: The combination comprises of Calcarea Phos,
Ferrum Phos, Kali Phos, Natrum Phos, and Natrum Sulph. Ferrum Phos and Calcarea Phos
are required to cure inflammation of kidneys. Kali Phos restores nervous system and
facilitates normal functioning of the pancreas. Natrum Phos takes care of hepatic form of
diabetes. Natrum Sulph is an important remedy in all stages of diabetes. It secures
elimination of excess water from the blood and the blood serum. The bio-combination thus
supports patients state of health by assimilating the glucose.
3) Ars Brom 3x or 6x, thrice daily: It is a good remedy for diabetes:

Arsen. Brom. is also a powerful remedy in diabetes mellitus and


insipidus, for I cured cases with it where the patient had already been
reduced from 138 pounds to 98let the patient take three drops thrice
daily in a glass of water, and after a week the insatiable burning thirst
will be quenched, and these doses must be continued till the quantity of

sugar in the urine is reduced, when the drug might be taken twice a day
and continued for a long time. A diabetic patient needs fresh pure air if
he wishes to get well; confinement in a room or in the office prevents
the action of any treatment, for it needs ozone to reduce the sugar of the
blood into carbonic acid and water. (Dr Clemens, as translated from the
German language by Dr Samuel Lilienthal).

Remarks:
Diabetic patients should never overeat, not even once. Let the food be digested easily. One
should not keep the stomach empty either; better eat six times a day. The food should not be rich;
it should be nutritious.
Reverence:
Though Diabetes Mellitus is usually incurable, but controllable, we are pleased to cite an
example of cure hereby. Our family friend, Captain S.N. Dalmia of Indian Airlines, was once
grounded when he became diabetic, but he proceeded to Jaipur where he stayed in an Ashram for
six months, and by sheer determination and firm belief, doing Yoga regularly, and maintaining
proper diet always as was suggested by a Swamiji, got cured without any medication and could
pass stringent tests and procedures which were conducted repeatedly in conformity with rules
and regulations of the government of India. Consequently, orders for grounding were revoked and
he commenced flying the planes again as before. You can achieve your objective in case you are
endowed with such resoluteness.

Idiopathic thrombocytopenia Purpura
(A decrease in the number of platelets)
A decrease in the number of blood platelets (Thrombocytes) is termed thrombocytopenia. Purpura is
characterized by extravasation of blood due to increased capillary permeability resulting from a
deficiency in the number of platelets. Sudden bleeding from different parts of the body occurs in acute
attack of thrombocytopenia.
The author cites a case in the words of Dr R. N. Biswas, Ph.D., who suffered from the disease in
November 2006:
Blood test revealed platelet count of fifteen thousand only and hemoglobin level was 10.7. The
platelet count rapidly fell to five thousand and then to one thousand per micro-liter. At that time
hemoglobin count also came down to 8.1. In the Emergency phase during December 2006 and January
2007, intervention like blood and platelet transfusion and other life-supporting measures were
administered at this stage to be exact, in July 2007, A K. Sarkar, a Bio-chemic physician,
prescribed Bio-chemic medicines-Ferrum Phos 6x and Calcarea Phos 6x. I took the medicines three
times a day regularly and the levels of Hemoglobin and RBC started improving gradually within two
months. Some other bio-chemic remedies such as Natrum Mur, Calcarea Fluor, Kali Mur, BC-7 and
Kali Phos were also prescribed for specific complaints subsequently. After a year of persistent
medication, all the levels including platelet count rose to nearly normal. I have been taking these
medicines since then and I feel a significant difference.
The above article appeared in quarterly JOURNAL ON BIO-SALTS & HEALTH, Volume No. 01,
Issue No. 02 (April-June 2010) of All Bengal Doctors Association of Bio-chemic Medicines. A. K.
Sarkar, who cured Dr Biswas of the life-threatening disease, was the President of the Association

favorable effect on deficient blood composition. Dr E. P. Anshutz has written that It has proved
curative in Leukemia.
Natrum Phos is also good in treating leukemia and leucocytosis;
Natrum Sulph takes away water from worn-out leucocytes, and thereby accomplishes their
disintegration. It is, therefore, the remedy for leukemia. (Dr Boericke & Dr Dewey); A patient
desires ice or ice-cold water. It is very effective in splenic and lymphatic leukemia with piercing
pains in extremeties. It also suits severe cases.

Nitric Acid 30x daily one dose in the morning: It should be administered, if
haemorrhoids bleed easily, pain as from splinters and urine smells like that of a horse. Dr J.

(127)
Pleurisy
(It is an inflammation of the membranes which line the chest wall and cover the lungs usually
caused by chill and marked by fever & pain; in many cases the pleural cavity fills up with fluid
which has to be withdrawn and requires the expert services of a physician; the diet should be
light and nourishing, low in table salt; hot application essential)
Remedies:
1) Ferrum Phos 6x: It is quite good in the first stage of an acute attack of pleurisy with high
fever, severe pain, short cough, shivering, and oppressed breathing. Five celloids every hour;
as the symptoms become less acute, every two hours. Natrum Mur 6x may be alternated.
2) Kali Mur 6x, every two hours: It is required during the second stage when fluid has
accumulated in the pleural cavity and the tongue is coated white. It may be alternated with
Ferrum Phos.
3) Calcarea Sulph 6x, every two hours: When pus forms in the cavity of the pleurae or in the
lungs, it helps and cures.

Worth Noticing:
Dr Compton Burnett, an allopathic doctor of great repute, could not get rid of pleurisy by
allopathic treatment but was cured by a Homoeopath. Consequently, he took to homoeopathic
practice remarkably.

(128)
Pneumonia
(Inflammation of the lungs caused by infection of a virulent virus; the onset is sudden, begins with
a sharp chill, followed by very high fever, headache, pain in chest, cough with rusty-colored
mucus, rapid breathing which rises to double or triple of the normal rate; well ventilated warm

room, light diet, hot drinks constitute essential requirements; after initial emergency treatment,
supervision of an experienced physician is a must.)
Remedies:
1) Ferrum Phos 6x: For inflammation of the lungs, high fever, pain, congestion, and short
hurried & oppressed breathing, it is the first and the chief remedy. It is of no use after
exudation has set in, nor in morbidly active cases. Expectoration of clear blood or rustcolored sputa is observed in cough of pneumonia. It should be given hourly, but less
frequently once the improvement commences. Dr G. W. Lawrence has affirmed that this
remedy and Veratrum Viride give me better success in the treatment of pneumonia than any
remedies I have ever tried. For pneumonia with faint feeling in stomach, early manifestation
of hepatization, and violent congestion, Veratrum Viride 6 should therefore be alternated with
Ferrum Phos 6x. It raises the opsonic index against the diploccus pneumonia, 70 to 109 per
cent. If free perspiration is not established by the use of Ferrum Phos, Kali Sulph 6x should
be alternated two hourly, especially if temperature rises from evening until midnight and then
falls, and the patient suffers from expectoration of loose, rattling, yellow phlegm or watery
mucus.
2) Antim Tart 30x, 3 doses, every 10 minutes: In case there is great rattling of mucus with
little expectoration, and there is much drowsiness, debility and sweat, Antim Tart gives
ample relief. When the patient coughs there appears to be large collection of mucus in the
bronchi; it seems as if much would be expectorated, but nothing comes up. Kali Mur also
may be taken three times a day, if the mucus is thick and white.
3) Iodum 3x, one hourly for 3 to 4 days: Right-sided pneumonia with high temperature,
blood-streaked sputum, rapidly spreading hepatization, pleuritic effusion, croupy wheezy
cough, difficulty in breathing, gets thin despite good appetite, heart feels squeezed.
4)
Ars Alb 12x or 30x, twice daily for a week: It is very effective if restlessness
accompanies pneumonia and the patient fears suffocation while lying down.

(129)
Poliomyelitis
(Inflammation of the grey matter of the spinal cord, often resulting in muscular paralysis; infantile

A combination of Bio-chemic remedies comprising of Calcarea Phos 12x, Ferrum Phos 6x, Kali
Phos 6x, and Natrum Phos 6x, 2 tablets of each after meals twice daily on long term basis will be
efficacious. Calcarea Phos is essential to the proper growth and nutrition of the body. It gives
solidity to the bones. It is a real tonic. Ferrum Phos removes blood-poverty and creates
oxygenated environment. It reduces inflammation. Kali Phos controls grey matter of the brain by
uniting with albumen and oxygen and creates grey matter. It is efficacious in cerebral & spinal
anaemia, and in idiopathic softening of the spinal cord and removes loss of power of movement.

Natrum Phos also removes paralytic weakness of lower extremities. It is needed in diseases of
children suffering from excess of lactic acid and acidity.

nose may be swollen and ulcerated and tip of nose may be icy-cold. The sense of smell is
impaired considerably. Calcarea Phos dries the polypus and cures it. In case, polypi in both
nostrils is large, gray and bleeds easily, Calcarea Phos 30X should be given every morning for a
week. It would work.
Alumina 12x, twice daily for one week: It is useful in polypus of the left nostril of the nose. The
patient may be suffering from constipation and fluent coryza; even a soft stool is passed with
difficulty, worse in the morning on awakening.
Calcarea Carb 30x, one dose daily in the morning for a few days: It is a good remedy for polypus
of the nose, ear, bladder, uterus etc in the case of persons who suffer from cold at every change of
weather.

Pregnancy Ailments & Precaution
Remedies:

a) To aid normal development of a child, one dose of Ferrum Phos 6x daily in the morning,

one dose of calcarea Phos 6x daily in the afternoon and one dose of Kali Phos 6x daily in the
evening should be taken by the mother during entire course of pregnancy to ensure proper
intake of vital mineral salts. It would improve general health, eradicate nervousness and
promote normal excretion.
b) In respect of ineffectual labor-pains, Dr Rozas, in the Pop. Zeit., says: For three years I
have employed Kali Phos., in 10-grain doses, dry on the tongue, every ten or fifteen minutes,
as a remedy to excite labor-pains. It has never failed me, and I seldom have to give the third
dose. Dr Chapman affirms it when he says that From my own experience and the reports of
other physicians and midwives, I am led to believe the testimony of Dr Rozas is not
overdrawn. Dr E. H. Hollbrook, M.D., also endorses it saying that In labor, when the pains
are too weak and irregular, I have seen nothing act more promptly and effectually than Kali
Phos. However, it is experienced that if Kali Phos is taken for a month or two prior to the
expected time of delivery, it strenghthens the nervous and muscular system to such an extent
that delivery is accomplished with comparative ease and comfort usually. Kali Phos 6x also
helps considerably in threatened miscarriage, when given in hourly doses. If miscarriage has
already happened, a few doses of Ferrum Phos 6X are required, and also Calcarea Fluor 6x
or 12x to tone up the contractile power of the uterus. Subsequently Calcarea Phos 6x is given
as a constitutional tonic.
c)
For spasmodic crampy labor-pains and eclampsia (convulsions occurring in late
pregnancy with rise in blood pressure and unconsciousness), Mag Phos 6x is a gem. It is
given in lukewarm water, 4 or 5 doses every 15 minutes.
d) After birth of an infant, if Ferrum Phos 6x is given two or three doses hourly in the
morning, it prevents mastitis (inflammation of mammary glands), metritis (inflammation of
uterus), lactation fever and gives tremendous relief in after-pains.
e)
In the treatment of agalactia (failure or inadequate supply of milk after child birth)
Calcarea Fluor 6x will help a lot.
f) Kali Mur 6x, 2 hourly for two or three days: It is the chief remedy for Puerperal fever
which is related to child birth.
g) Silicea 12x, twice a day: It is needed if nipples crack and ulcerate, and child refuses
milk or vomits as soon as taken. It is also quite good in the case of suppuration of mammae,
hard lumps in breast, chronic fistulous openings.

Tumors
(Tumor arises primarily from a deficiency of Potassium Chloride, which causes an excess of fibrin in
the system. If tumor contains fibrin only, its cure difficult, as there is no blood vessel in it for the
remedy to reach it. However, in other cases where tumor is filled with fat or water or other liquids,
cure is feasible.)
Remedies:

kernels, hardened glands in the breast; ganglion, encysted tumors; tumors of the eyelids; hard
or firm shiny swelling in any part of the body. The cure may take two/three months. Calcarea

tumor, in the scar. It was at St. Bartholomews Hospital, but rapidly returned and increased in
size, till the patient, a girl, was put on Silicea, night and morning. The gradual disappearance
of the growth under this treatment was one of the prettiest things I have ever seen in
medicine. (John H. Clarke)

tumors. It has more power over uterine tumors than any other remedy. (Burnett);

fear fright worry, cold sweats, burning pains; great prostration, too weak to move; Great

thirst for cold water; drinks often, but little at a timecannot bear the sight or smell of
food. Symptoms worsen after midnight, better from heat.
2) Kali Phos 3x thrice daily: It is very effective in typhoid fever with malignant symptoms,
affecting the brain, causing stupor (dazed state) or putrid blood with weak action of the
heart, sleeplessness and offensive breath. It is an excellent remedy in extreme vitiation of
the blood, when the system seems full of typhoid poison and the disease is not located in any
single organ. (Boericke & Dewey); there may be hallucinations of the brain, and the tongue
coated like stale mustard, very dry, cleaves to roof of the mouth. If watery vomiting appears,
Natrum Mur 3x should be alternated otherwise Ferrum Phos 3x should be alternated.as long
as inflammatory symptoms remain. In case, there is rise of temperature in the evening Kali
Sulph 6x is also indicated.
3) Bio-chemic remedies of interest from the pen of Dr A. P. Davis, of Dallas, Texas: It is
a conceded fact that the inflammation in the glands of Brunner and Peyer keep up the fever,
and the remedy that cures these glands cuts short the disease, and the remedies that I have
found to do this most certainly are Ferrum Phos and Kali Mur, given in alternation every
hour during fever, where there is a white or grayish coating on the tongue. The Ferrum is the
best fever remedy, and the Kali Mur, the best eliminator in such conditions. If the tongue
should becme brown, give Kali Phos, and especially in those cases where the patient is
delirious or nervous, and in the more malignant form of the disease. If the tongue assumes a
yellow, shiny coating, then resort to Magnesia Phos, and especially when there are pain in
the bowels and a sensation of pressure in the stomach. If the tongue has a golden-yellow
coating, creamy, moist, give Natrum Phos. Should the tongue have a dirty brownish-green
coating, give Natrum Sulph. These remedies are especially indicated in this condition of the
tongue. Last of all, when the patient begins to convalesce, finish up the treatment with
Calcarea Phos, as a connective tissue and blood-cell constituent is needed. In all cases
where these tissue remedies have been used by me they have proved abundantly sufficient,
and will cure, if given as indicated. They supply the inorganic elements that are disturbed or
lacking in all diseased states, and if a strict observance is had in their selection, the
physician will certainly cure any disease that can be cured at all. I usually give them the 4x
to 6x potency. If there is great stupor Natrum Mur is indicated as an intercurrent remedy,
according to Dr Schussler.

Note:
One should not resort to over-feeding during convalescence, when patient is inclined to be hungry.
Typhus, or jail fever is the same as typhoid, but in a more malignant form.

Young man, aet. 18, complained of daily pain in left testicle, incapacitating him for work.
Examination showed a varicocele, well developed, probably caused by constant heavy lifting.
After five weeks use of Ferrum phos, daily one dose, cured. (Dr Mayer, Stuttgart).
Fluoric Acid 6x, twice daily for some days: In case veins in legs tend to ulcerate, it is very
useful, especially in chronic cases. It mainly acts upon lower tissues afflicted with bedsores,
varicose veins and ulcers. The patient may be indifferent to those whom he/she loves the most;
warm drinks may produce diarrhea; feels as if burning vapor were emitted from pores. There
may be offensive perspiration and dropsy of limbs.

Vertigo
(Giddiness, Dizziness)
(A sensation or actual loss of equilibrium, frequently accompanied by nausea, vomiting, nystagmus

(abnormal oscillation of eyeballs); constipation should be corrected.


Remedies:
1) Ferrum Phos 6x: Vertigo or giddiness from rush of blood to the head, with flushed face
and throbbing or pressing headache, on rising from a stooping position; after eating or with
vomiting of undigested food, relieved by cold application. Kali Phos 6x should be alternated
every hour, a few doses, comprising of 5 tablets each. Kali Phos takes care of vertigo from
anaemia, also from cerebral or nervous causes and weakness/exhaustion, worse when rising
and looking upward.
2) Acid Phos 1x one drop in water twice daily after meals: Vertigo towards evening while
standing or walking, worse shaking or noise with crushing headache; hair thins out, turns gray
early.
3) Borax 30x, one or two doses for vertigo while descending; Calcarea Carbonica 30x, one
or two doses for vertigo while ascending; Natrum Mur 12x, every two/three hours, for
vertigo when studying or giving examination.

Voice Loss
(Aphonia)
(Loss of voice usually follows overexertion in speaking or exposure to cold or due to injury to vocal
organs)
Remedies:
1)
Ferrum Phos 6x: Aphonia of singers or public speakers, quite painful, caused by
overexertion of voice or cold and wet or accumulation of phlegm in the larynx, is cured by
application of Ferrum Phos and Kali Mur 6x in alternation 4 hourly. In obstinate cases
Calcarea Sulph 6x, thrice a day, follows well.
2)
Kali Phos 6x: For loss of voice from paralysis of vocal cords or from nervous
exhaustion, it is excellent and may be taken three times a day.
3) Borax 1x: A piece of borax, the size of a pea, dissolved in the mouth, acts magically in
restoring the voice, in cases of sudden hoarseness brought on by cold, and frequently for an
hour or so, it renders the voice silvery and clear. Boericke.

(169)
Vomiting
(Evacuation of the contents of stomach through the oesophagus and the mouth)
Causes:
a) Irritation of stomach.

(170)
Warts
(Papilloma)
(Small, usually hardish excrescences on skin, caused by abnormal growth of papillae)
Remedies:
1) Kali Mur 6x & Natrum Mur 6x, 5 tablets of each, thrice a day for some weeks: Dr
Schussler has recommended external use of Kali Mur also. A quantity of the trituration, the
size of a pea, is to be dissolved in a tablespoon of water, and with this solution the affected
part is to be moistened once a day. Natrum Mur takes care of warts in the palms of hands.
Natrum Sulph, 6x, is needed in the case of warts caused by long exposure to dampness. For
large, fleshy, suppurating warts Silicea 6x is sufficient, and may be alternated with Kali Mur.
2) Nitic Acid 6x, 4 hourly, in the case of large jagged pedunculated warts, which may bleed
on washing. There may be splinter-like pains.
3) Calcarea Calcinata 3x, in 8 grain doses, at bedtime: It is also a good remedy for all kinds
of warts.
A young lady, at school, in England, strong, and of good general health, but with a certain
degree of specific and sycotic heredity, had been very much troubled for a long time with
unsightly warts on the hands. I cannot say that any of the remedies I had prescribed had made
any real improvement. In June 1912, I prescribed Calc. Cal. 3x, eight grains at bedtime. At
once a change for the better took place. The warts broke up and within few weeks were
gone. (Dr E. P. Anshutz in New, Old and Forgotten Remedies)
4) Calcarea Carbonica 30x, daily once for warts on face and hands.

(171)
Whitlow

(Felon)
(Deep seated abscess at the end of a finger, often under the nail with pain and swelling)
Remedies:
1) Ferrum Phos 12x in water, every three hours: It should be given in the first stage to
remove fever, pain, congestion.
2) Kali Mur 12x, every 3 hours: It should be given in the second stage, when there is
swelling, but no pus formation yet. It may be given in alternation with Ferrum Phos to elicit
quick relief.
3) Silicea 6x: As soon as pus formation commences, it should follow Kali Mur. A dose
every two hours will usually cure the felon in twenty-four hours. (A.P.Davis, M.D.). A
whitlow, which had suppurated, had all the pus absorbed in the course of a night by only two
doses of Silicea 6x. (Dr B. N. Mitra).
4)
Calcarea Sulph 12x, thrice a day: Silicea ripens abscesses, since it promotes
suppuration, while Calcarea Sulph restrains suppurative process, so causes the wound to
heal.

(172)
Whooping Cough
(An acute infectious disease characterized by paroxysmal cough, ending in noisy inspiration with
a whoop; coughing persists in most cases for several weeks; food should be given frequently, but
in small quantities, as a full stomach may cause vomiting.)
Causes:
An accumulation of fibrin and other organic matter in bronchial tubes, and also in glottis (opening
from pharynx into larynx) is the main cause.
Signs & symptoms:
i) Paroxysmal cough with a loud sound
ii) Cough mild in the beginning
iii) The cough gradually increases in intensity with violent spasms of coughing
iv) Vomiting follows.
v) Fever may afflict the patient.

Remedies:
1) Mag Phos 6x: It is the principal Bio-chemic remedy in whooping cough, for the whoop,
paroxysms of coughing, difficult breathing. When the fits of coughing are very acute, dissolve
3 tablets in hot water and give it 4 hourly. For chronic whooping cough, it should be
alternated with Kali Mur 6x, every 4 hours for some days. Occasional doses of Ferrum Phos
6x in mornings may be necessary. When the cough has become spasmodic in character,
ending in the characteristic whoop, Mag Phos is the remedy par excellence. Calcarea Phos
6x is often used in winding up the treatment as a general restorative.
2) Hepar Sulph 12x or 30x twice or thrice for some days, if whooping cough worse in
morning and while walking; cough troublesome if the patient exposed to dry cold winds;
rattling cough with suffocative attacks, better while bending head backwards.
3)
Kali Carb 30x, twice a day for a few days: It is good for dry painful cough with
hoarseness and loss of voice, about 3 a. m.; expectoration scanty and tenacious and may have
to be swallowed, better in warm climate and by leaning forward, worse in cold weather.
4) Kali Sulph 12x twice daily for some days: It is beneficial in the last stage of whooping
cough with blistered lips & mouth, black offensive stools, yellow slimy expectoration.
Management:
a) Keep the room well ventilated.
b) Cover the chest warmly.
c) Give food frequently, but in small quantities.
d) Use a light belt about the abdomen.

(173)
Worms
(Intestinal tract is often the site of worms. Intestinal worms are of three kinds: tape worms, round
worms, pin worms. Presence of worms is usually detected by irritation or itching of the anus.)
Remedies:
Natrum Phos 3x: It is the principal Bio-chemic remedy for all kinds of worms. It destroys excess
of lactic acid, which is helpful for the life of these worms. It is the enemy of intestinal, long,

round, or thread-worms, with associated symptoms of picking of the nose, itching of the anus,
acidity, restless sleep, pain in the abdomen, especially at night when warm in bed. It may be
given thrice a day. It expels tape worms also if taken for a long period. It is sufficient for
elimination of ascaris lumbricoides and oxyuris vermicularis. Natrum Phos may be alternated
with Natrum Mur 3x. If the tongue is white, let Kali Mur 6x be alternated.

Note:
Worms infesting the body are parasites which consume nutrients. Symptoms comprise of constipation
or diarrhea, flatulence, anemia, grinding of teeth, and extreme debility. The affected persons should
take garlic, onions, papaya seeds, promegranate.

DILUTIONS
OR
TRITURATIONS
MADE
FROM
SPECIFIC
MINERAL
WATERS

(a)
LEVICO
Of all mineral waters those of Levico are distinguished, not only by their contents of
these mineral elements arsenic, iron and copper, but they are remarkable for the
state of combination in which they occur. Situated in South Tyrol on the confines of
Italy, Levico has for many years been a favourite sanatorium of the Italian medical
profession for their nervous and skin patients. Of late, Levico water has also been
increasingly recognized by the German and Australian faculty, among whom
Bamberger, Billroth, Hebra, Nussbaum and others testify to the extraordinary remedial
activity of the waters, favouring assimilation, increasing nutrition and in chronic and
dyscratic skin diseases functioning as antiseptic or astringent. (The Therapist, a
London Journal)
Dr Burnett has called the attention to this water in his books. Levico remedy is
prepared by dilutions made from the mineral water or triturations from the residue
obtained by evaporation of the water. It is a recognized member of the pharmacopeia
in many German and Australian hospitals and clinics. Professor Eulenberg of Berlin
has recommended it for treatment of Chorea minor in children, and at the age of
puberty, as well as for hysterical neuralgia and spasms.

(b)
SANICULA
(Mineral Spring Water)
The evaporated, triturated and potentized salt from Mineral Water of Sanicula Springs
of Ottawa was proved under the auspices of the American Doctor, Sherbina. It was
introduced by Dr J. G. Gundlach.
It is a useful remedy in enuresis, seasickness, constipation and Rickets. It cures
dandruff. It also cures nausea and vomiting caused from car-sickness. It is very

effective in treatment of constipation when the patient does not have any desire to
evacuate feces until he suffers from a very large accumulation thereof and is able to
expel the accumulated bowels partially after great straining. Very offensive odor of
stools remains even after bathing; no amount of washing make him/her get rid of the
odor. Head and neck sweat profusely; the pillow gets wet invariably; soles of feet
burn. It also suits a lady who suffers from leucorrhea with odor of fish-brine or that
of old cheese. The patient generally is of headstrong and obstinate nature.
