Solanum-tuberans-agrotans (diseased potato) is a useful remedy for prolapse of the rectum. Dr. J.K. Das describes his own case of prolapsed rectum of 70 long lasting years cured by a single dose of the remedy. Various cases ranging from Malaria to Hepatoma are covered in this issue (I wonder why most authors have changed the remedy or even repeated the remedy when the patient showed improvement. Should the patient not be given Placebo?).

Vol 3, No 1, Jan-March 94 Phule Road, Maliwada, Ahmednagar-

Homoeopathic potencies are often called unscientific because there is no molecular presence of the crude drug in them, completely ignoring the dynamic part of the medicines. Classification of disease and diet add to the authenticity of the system. A question often arises as to why there is a wide variation in prescribing by different practitioners for one patient. The editorial stresses that the practical application of Homoeopathic principles is an art depending on the ability of the physician to take up the case properly, to evaluate the symptoms obtained, to arrive at a synthesis of the case including its miasmatic background, to interpret the changes following the administration of a remedy, to understand the degree of susceptibility of the patient and other co-related factors. Prof Gobind Sen, discusses the most commonly encountered psychiatric disorder depression. A reprint of a case of Schizophrenia, Hebephrenic type, treated by Lachesis. Meningitis as a disease is explained by Dr. Bansal with relevant Homoeopathic medicines. Dr. Sundra Vardhan quotes various authors for diagnostic and therapeutic hints in his article Pointers for Diagnosis and Therapeutics.

Bowel nosodes often bring on cures in inveterate chronic cases. Dysentery-co has mid-day and mid-night aggravation, peptic irritation, vomiting of large quantity of food. Gartners keynote is malnutrition and undernourished body with overactive brain and hypersensitive to external impressions. It also has inability to digest fat. A section for students discusses aphorisms 19,20 and 21.

Jan-March 95, Vol.4, No.1

To blow and open the mouth to the roof, to exhale and inhale, to force out the old air and draw in the new, to stretch like a bear and spread like a bird. That is the art of prolonging life. This is the way of the wise men, who exercise their breathing and care for their bodies, that they may live long" - Dschuangdst. The editor presents the profound thoughts of Dr. Gutman on a subject about which there is tremendous awakening among the people of this planet and suggests exercises accordingly. Dr. D.P. Rastogi reports a case of bladder carcinoma treated with Iscador which showed disappearance of the tumour. The cystoscopy findings before and after the therapy have been recorded giving authenticity to the case. Prescribing on a single remedy - rubric in the repertory is one of the several paths by which difficult conditions with irreversible pathology usually considered surgical, can be treated successfully. Dr. Malhotra prescribes Apis for innumerable cases of femoral thrombosis based on the rubric in Kents repertory - thrombosis lower limbs - apis (only drug in italics). Though Kents Materia Medica has no mention of thrombosis, both Herings Guiding symptoms and Allens Encyclopedia mention symptoms of thrombosis under Apis. The first step in treating patient with burns is dowsing him in cold water. Two cases are described to show the efficacy of heat application in burns. Under the biography section, the concluding part of T.F. Allens biography is presented. Having read many issues of Medicine Futura Homoeopathy, I have found Dr. Laxminarayans approach to cogitate on burning issues, be it Bowel Nosodes or usage of steroids in Homoeopathy, very instructive.
