WILLIAM E BOYD, an English homoeopath has constructed an equipment, Emanometer which can help to study homoeopathic remedies from several origins. Experiments on this led him to conclude that all human beings and all substances that can act as remedies, emit a particular kind of energy. He then researched with patients in order to find the similimum. He employed blood samples of his patients and determined the emitted energy from them. Then he tried several available remedies, to find the one capable of canceling the energy emitted by the biological materia. This remedy was taken as the similimum. Pozetti, Cabrera and Bernardi describe Boyds research on the symptomatic similitude by the research on the vibrational similitude.
Ken Mac Arif Ismail's Maishi article on Psychiatric disorders in mental retardation and its homoeopathic management is interesting. Homoeopathic remedies for childhood psychosis, hyperkinetic syndromes, neurotic conduct and personality disorder etc have been narrated. The next article is on Danger of Serum and Vaccine by Robert Ortego. Dr. Nimbhorkar throws light on Psoriasis a difficult disease to treat, where the author has used DNA 1M successfully in many cases, possibly because DNA plays an important part as support of hereditary characters which descend from genes. LM Singh and Girish Gupta investigate Antiviral efficacy of homoeopathic drugs against animal viruses namely chick embryo virus (CEV) of fowls and Simliki Forest virus (SFV) causing encephalitis and death in mice. In all, 10 drugs in 33 potencies showed varying degree of virus inhibition. The drugs that cause 100 percent inhibition of CEV were Typhoidinum 200, Hydrophobinum 1M, Tuberculinum 1M, Nux vomica 200, Malandrinum 1M. Of the drugs tested in 11 potencies against SFV, none were found effective in either preventing the disease or the death of the mice infected by this virus. The department of Pharmacology, Spain contributes a model for proving.
