The remarkable success of homoeopathy in the treatment of chronic ailments not responding to the usual form of therapy has led to a widespread belief that homoeopathic treatment is good enough only for these chronic troubles. Dr. K.N. Kasads article on Acute Prescribing gives an insight into case-taking, prescribing and remedy selection in such cases. A pregnant lady with fever and burning in hypogastrium presented a characteristic mental symptom - on falling asleep she felt that an unknown person was sitting beside her, and tries to take away the child that was inside the womb. With this feeling the patient would shout to her husband for help. The patient had experienced the same feeling in two previous pregnancies and had aborted. Dr. Devadiga and Dr. Pednekar prescribed Lyssin which brought down the fever and two months later she delivered a healthy child. The editor Dr. P. Barvalias article Acute Infections - Psychosomatic and Miasmatic Correlations through cases of Tonsillitis, Toxic Psychosis and Typhoid fever illustrates the importance of Miasms. Dr. Jayesh Shah opines that there is nothing like an acute remedy or a chronic remedy. It is the indications on which the remedy is based that matters the most. Cases of fever, acute appendicitis and renal colic also feature in this issue.

Dr. Sosi Roy shares with the readers his experience in treating mentally disturbed patients. He presents a few cases of mental patients who were cured without giving any medicine through the means of counselling alone. All the same he indicates the medicines that could be given in such cases. Moreover, he convinces that complete recovery is not possible without giving medicines. Dr. Sarkar opines that Homoeopathy cannot stand without generalities, which signifies total derangement state of the patient. A physician has to fulfill three fold duty in treating a patient. The patient has to be treated physically by administering the correct medicine, diet, exercise, mentally by counseling and spiritually by boosting his morality. For this a physician needs to have perfect health himself. Dr. Mishra gives this message in his article Vital-Force The Subtle Physical Body. Dr. Abraham Cheriyans paper on AIDS and Homoeopathy is presented. Dr. Cheriyan recommends Tuberculinum for treatment based on Boerickes description of Tuberculinum patient. Pieters G stresses that the more striking, singular, uncommon and peculiar a symptom, the more important it must be considered. Dr. R. P. Patel discusses Organon for the benefit of students.

The guest editorial by Francises Eizayaga, the President of OMHI (organization for Homoeopathic Medicine) perceives the future of Homoeopathy very bright in the 21st century. After 45 years of Homoeopathic practice he describes the standard of Homoeopathy in U.K. Germany, France and latin America. A clinical trial was conducted on 26 animals in a diary farm. They were divided into 2 groups of 13 each, pairing on clinical and subclinical mastitis status, milk production and number of lactations, assigning both animals and treatments by a systematic random method. One group received Homoeopathic treatment (a combination consisting of Phytolacca decandra 200-c 50 percent Phosphorus 200-c 30 percent and Conium mac 200-c 20 percent) and the other placebo. Monthly milk production was carefully recorded for each animal, as were the results of the California Mastitis Test (CMT) performed on each quarters of the udder.

The proportion of affected quarters according to CMT was 32 percent in the treated group, and 68 percent in the control group. The odds ratio of the difference shows that animals receiving placebo presented 4.5 times more subclinical mastitis than those under Homoeopathic treatment. Average milk production in the treated group did not differ significantly from that of the control group. The study confirms previous observations of the benefit the Homoeopathic method can provide in disease control in animal populations. A spectroscopic analysis of Lycopodium showed the possibility of contaminants in commercial Homoeopathic medicines reports Dr. Zacharias. The effect of trituration on thermal degradation of lactose (sugar of milk) was studied using a thermo-gravimetric analyser. A correlation between the rate of degradation with increased potency observed up to 600 centigrade degree c suggests that the vehicle plays an important role in the bioavailability of the drug. Comparison was also made between machine and hand triturated lactose. For lower potencies (upto the 2X) machine triturated lactose was found to degrade faster than hand triturated lactose, whereas at higher potencies hand triturated lactose showed faster degradation as compared to machine triturated lactose-reports Dr. Gupta from Delhi, Guy Kokelenberg gives five pediatric cases of Capsicum, Managanum, Calcarea iod, Gallic Acid and Antimony Crud. He describes Capsicum children are those whose parents have over stimulated or over-drugged themselves in the past. These children are over-shy, awkward, stumbling, introverted, and obese. Being homesick they prefer to watch TV, sit, or read, Capsicum cannot take a joke and is easily offended. They do not like to break a routine, cannot stand change. Capsicums uncleanliness is due to dislike of change.

Similie carries news, views and case reports, Dr. Master reports a case of cirrhosis of deeply unconscious patient, which responded to Crotalus-horridus 1M by inhalation. The treatment was later followed by Digitalis and Acid-phos. Another case of constipation which did well on Stramonium and Tuberculinum is also described.
