Vol 18, May 93

Dr. Koppikars name has been almost synonymous with Homoeopathic Heritage, having been the editor for 14 years. Dr. Koppikar now decides to step down.

Editor NJH the growth of Heritage as a Homoeopathic journal, is largely attributed to Dr. Koppikar (and of course. Dr. Chitkara) Homoeopaths all-over will miss his stimulating Editorials. Is he going to lend his homoeopathic expertise to other journal?

Dr. Yingling narrates the principles of prescribing and reminding the homoeopaths to use striking peculiar, noticeable, exceptional and uncommon symptoms while prescribing.

Dr. S.P. Dey, the new editor of the Journal, in his editorial discusses the hardships a homoeopath faces with every case he encounters. The editor promises to make the herculean task easier by presenting readers with articles which will enhance and refresh our knowledge of homoeopathy. The issue contains a few surgical cases treated by Julia Green. Dr. Moores article on pointers, to give some selected hints while prescribing is interesting. Dr. Batra discusses ano-rectal problems and Dr. Rana writes on Diarrhoea in children which is responsible for 15 percent to 40 percent of all the deaths among children below 5 years of age. A section titled Ladies and Gentlemen describes homoeopathy to laymen in a lucid manner. The section for students concentrates on Organon, reviewing the anecdotes of its inception. The fifteenth part of Excerpts from the history of homoeopathy and its INSTITUTIONS IN AMERICA, apart from speaking about students and followers of Gram, mentions the election of Hahnemann as a member of the New York Country Medical Society and later the Society rescinded it by resolution.

Vol 18, Sept. 93

Cases which did not benefit with Homoeopathy were given Isopathic line of treatment by Dr. Bansal. Cases of Allergic Rhinitis were treated by Auto blood therapy and showed encouraging results. The author urges homoeopaths to try potentised urine, stool, blood of menses, sputum and skin scrapings of eczematous lesions as intercurrent remedies in patients who do not respond to homoeopathic treatment. David Curtin, Francis Treuherz, George Lewith and June burger participated in a debate on Single or Multiple Medicine Prescribing. A brief biography of father Keith Muller, the founder of Father Mullers Charitable Institutions, Mangalore is continued in this issue. Section on students explains Aphorism one of the Organon. H.L. Chandra Mouly in his article "AIDS and Syphilis - The Hidden Link" discusses the drug AZT (Azidothymidine, Zidovudine) used for AIDS patients. The author quotes Coulter - "AIDS will not spread beyond the existing reservoir of persons whose immune system is in shambles and that is good news for all those who are treated with homoeopathy and who have consistently shunned the glamours of modern medicine. AIDS will never affect otherwise healthy persons, heterosexuals or homosexuals. AIDS is to some extent a man made catastrophe and must be classified with other destructive environmental effects of mans activities. This time however, our internal environment is being assaulted and destroyed. AIDS is the long term price paid for short term benefits and is thus the medical parallel of our depletion of the ozone layer, the destruction of the tropical rain forests, the burdening of the atmosphere with Sulphuric acid from coal fired power installations, the poisoning of rivers and oceans with pesticides and fertilizers".

The issue focuses on Diarrhoeas. Acute Diarrhoea is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in infants and young children all over the world, more so in the developing countries. Dr. Kamal Kansal and Dr. Gupta throw light on its management with oral re-hydration therapy.

The Asian edition of Links started with Volume four. This issue gives us a glimpse of the earlier three volumes under the editorship of Beet Springs and Lorraine Taylor. Seminars by eminent homoeopaths like Roger, Nancy, Ananda Zaren, John Hicks, Vassilis Ghegas etc. from all over the world are reported. In acute crisis it is very difficult to differentiate between the anxiety remedies. George Vithoulkas notes from Berne seminar helps us to differentiate Arsenic (anxiety about others which is really for themselves). Aconite (panic attacks impressive. with fear of imminent death) Natrum-mur (will not voice her anxiety for fear of ridicule) Nitric-acid (a nihilist, believes in nothing, that life is not worth living and he should kill himself, but underneath is a fear of death, therefore prepares but does not shoot himself). Anacardium and Baryta-carb are two main remedies for lack of self confidence the others being Bryonia, Silicea, Gelsemium, Natrum-mur, China. Small snippets of different remedies especially their mental breakup is interesting. For those of us who have not yet branched out into the realm of video case taking, and an interesting exercise is to homoeopathically analyze films. Various remedies can be ruminated from the vivid characters portrayed in the films. Various cases with appropriate rubrics are also carried in the issue. Restless children often turn to bother parents and a distraction for a homoeopathic during case taking. Beat springs classified the remedies into four groups -

Group 1 - Energy in excess - Tarentula-h, Verat, Iodum, ARs-iod.
Group 2 - Hurriedness - Acid-sulph, Lil-tig, Argentum-met, Medorrhinum
Group 3 - Discomfort - Arsenic, Rhus-tox, Zincum
Group 4 - Discontent - Tuberculinum, Calc-phos

Remedy pictures of Bufo, Aurum, Mercury, Zincum with elaborate case study are also mentioned. Skin diseases are rampant all over the world. George Vithoulkas describes different conditions with corresponding remedies -

  1. Cracks in the skin - Petroleum (worse in winter), Sarsaparilla (constant cracks especially at feet).
  2. Ulcers - Arsenic, Anthracinum, Carbo-veg, Hepar-sulph, Kali-sulph, Kali-bich, Nitric-ac, Phytolacca, Pulsatilla, Silicea, Sulphur.
  3. Boils - Hepar-sulph, Sulphur, Brominum, Mercury, Calc-sulph, Calc-carb, Anthracinum.
  4. Eczema - Sulphur, Mezer, Sepia, Graphites (skin eruptions suppressed leads to duodenal ulcers)
  5. Herpes Zoster - Ranunculus-bulb, Rhus-tox, Variolinum, Thuja
  6. Vitiligo - Sepia, Sulphur, Calcarea, Aurum, Arsenic, Alumina, Phosphorus, Natrum-mur, Natrum-carb, Mercury, Silica
  7. Ringworm - Bacillinum, Radium-brom, Natrum-mur, Tellurium, Tuberculinum.

All in all an interesting and informative issue.
