Vol. 10, No.2, April-June 93

Psoriasis, a noncontagious cutaneous disease is rampant in Sri Lanka. Dr. M A Latif, President of Sri Lanka Homoeopathic Medical Association discusses management of the same. Dr. M.P. Nimbhorkar reports that DNA 1M has proved useful in the treatment of Psoriasis. Allergies and infections of the upper respiratory tract are common in children. Dr Rastogi gives us a list of homoeopathic drugs to deal with them in our day to day practice. The Ministry of Health, Govt. of India, has proposed to amend Rule 106 - A of the Drugs and Cosmetics Rules 1945, relating to packing of homoeopathic medicines. After the proposed amendment is implemented a homoeopathic manufacturer or a homoeopathic chemist shall have to abide by the same and do the following - Discard all packings of homoeopathic medicines containing more than 12 percent of alcohol, above 30ml and below 15 ml since packing in more than 30ml will not be allowed while sealed packing with proper labelling below 15ml will not be possible. Dr. M. Gulati, president of Delhi Homoeopathic Chemists Association spoke to the Govt. officials, who orally conveyed that the amendment is brought in for two reasons-

  1. To help prevent use of alcohol for potable purposes eg. Sura tragedy and
  2. To check the brand name abuse by retail homoeopathic chemists.

(Sura- an Ayurvedic medicine seems to have become a basis to disqualify homoeopathic way of prescription. In our country, Whisky, having an alcohol of 43 percent vol are sold in bigger than 500 ml packing in the open market and are non objectionable while homoeopathic medicine is treated like a beverage. Should the Government not rethink on its policy?)

April-June 1998

In his editorial, Dr Pankaj Agarwal refers to the news item in May 1998 relating to the discovery of a comprehensive medicine for cancer proved through rats. Dr Agarwal correctly points out that past experience has established that medicines which have been tested on animals are not necessarily suitable to humans and many such allopathic drugs had serious side effects. In this context he quotes extensively from a medical text on pharmacology of allopathy in support of his position.

  • Homoeopathic treatment of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (a reprint) by Dr V Sundaravaradan deals with Gonorrhoea and Syphilis and its therapeutics. Med, Puls, Syphilinum unlock the suppressions and bring back the discharge, paving the way for further medication. When both Gonorrhoea and Syphilis are present, he first treated Gonorrhoea with Can-sativa, mercurial salts for syphilis. Carbo-animalis for bubo.
  • Dr Sangeeta Sehgal's concluding article on Cimicifuga contains three cases: one of ophthalmoplegic migraine and pain in the eye ball.

He quotes the experience of Dr Diwan Harischand that coffee in small quantity is permitted if the patient has always been drinking it. (Dr P Sankaran had also confirmed it) Similarly alcohol in moderation and smoking only half an hour before or after medicine are allowed.
