Dr.J.T. Kent

Coccus cacti & Paroxysmal cough: Coccus cacti suits almost any paroxysmal cough when the attacks are violent, but not very close together, and are attended by much redness of the face and a general sense of feeling too hot. If irritation of the kidneys, with scanty, thick heavy urine, passed pretty often also attends, it is doubly indicated and the results will be brilliant. — Dr. Boger C.M

Arnica in Pleuro-pneumonia: If pleura-pneumonia has followed upon an external injury, such as a blow, or a fractured rib, or some other traumatic cause, we should choose Arnica in preference to Bryonia. — Dr. Hale R

Acalypha Indica on GI tract: Aclypha indica is indicated for haemorrhagic broncho-pulmonary disease especially with burning GI symptoms. — Dr. Furman T. Kepler

Leucorrhoea in Children: If there are no specific reasons for other remedies, I start treatment in young girls with mild catarrhal discharge (leucorrhoea) by giving Pulsatilla especially is the discharge is thick like cream, and then Sulphur or Sepia according to symptoms. If these remedies are not sufficient to effect a cure, then Cal. carb is mostly indicated. — Dr. Wassily

When Carefully chosen remedy not responded: When not withstanding the carefully chosen remedy and the patient’s faultless diet, the sick condition lies on the contrary is not at all changed, the cause usually lies in want of receptivity which we must seek to remove either by repeated small doses or by medicines recommended for deficient reaction. — Dr. Boger C.M

Pulsatilla in Tuberculosis: Pulsatilla is probably the strictly homeopathic remedy that I use most often in early tuberculosis. — Dr. Walter sands Mills

Bellis perennis in Soreness of joints: Bellis perennis is indicated when there is a bruised, strained feeling with general soreness of joints and muscles, resulting from exposure, and after vigorous physical exercise, and in Dr Hinsdale’s experience, surpasses Arnica in these conditions. — Dr. Skinner

If old obscured symptoms returned: If old obscured symptoms, complained of perhaps months or years before the first prescription was made, reappear and trouble the patient, they should be carefully noted, and their course observed, but these symptoms should not be hastily prescribed for until a picture of the proper remedy is presented, for such conditions frequently appear and then disappear of themselves, never to return. — Dr. Hardy
