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.

VOL 5 AND 6 NO I, II 1995-96

The fourth issue of 1996 of HCCR carries 14 case reports. The editor, Dr Mistry, in his editorial signifies different alternative methods of healing. Articles on Reiki have been published in the preceding issues of HCCR and this issue carries an article on Pranic Healing by Dr Arati Sharma. Reiki is a more passive form of non-interventional healing and is easily learnt. Pranic healing is more active and positive but far more difficult to master because of the subjective element in it. This form of healing makes one aware of what is happening in the person who is being healed as well as oneself.

Homoeopathy, as a system of therapeutics, is practiced by Homoeopaths since many years all over the world. It has been regarded as a mysterious phenomenon in the history of medicine. Dr Ajit Kulkarni's article 'Homoeopathy Ahead' throws light on the current state of Homoeopathy, what it has to offer to the ailing community and the changes technology, information and practice will undergo at the end of the 20th century.

Dr Kishore Mehta's case of Psoriasis is very illustrative with an Events Effect chart, analysis to great details, and the exact evolution of the disease. Kali-ars was prescribed based on the restlessness, anxiety about his disease, escapism, self centered in nature and anticipatory anxiety.

Dr Kadri Koya describes a case of Renal Calculi with hypertension which was treated by Rauwolfia- serp Q, Passiflora Q, and Berberis-vulgQ mixed equally in 20 drops BD. In addition Berb-vulg 0/6 [HS] and Rauwolfia Q 0/6 [HS] was administered. The stone 7mm in size was passed by the patient within 18 days of treatment. Though the author gives credit to 50 millesimal potencies, one wonders whether it was the physiological dose of three mother tinctures or the millesimal potencies which did the trick.

Dr V Krishnamoorty gives some random notes on practice stressing the need to read Materia Medica more than the repertory. Symptoms like easy relapses, interrupted convalescence in Wilkinson's Materia Medica are not covered by the repertory, but can be very useful in practice.

Dr Vohra presents few short cases, a man who dared to look at the eclipse lost his eyesight, and was declared incurable but his eyesight was restored by Ruta. A case of ulnar nerve injury did well on a single dose of Rhus-tox CM.

Dr Krishna Kumar describes a case of a medical student who had difficulty in work, lost his self confidence and had repeated failures. Discontented with himself as his peers went ahead, he turned reserved and bottled his feelings. His mother's death and father's remarriage compounded problems. Staphysagria 200 and later 1M potency helped the boy. A dose of Nat mur 1M given as an antimiasmatic remedy in between is not well explained. Seminar Reports, Book reviews, Journal reviews, from the rest of the prestigious journal.
