There's a rough patch at the bottom of my garden where nothing grows but weeds. This is not quite true, however, because I have seen a yearly succession of wonderful colonists find a home in this little niche.
In early summer small clump of beautiful Tiger Lilies unfold their beautiful flowers, and I can be proud of the fact that they have made her home in my modest little plot.
The Tiger Lily is a precious, delicate, feminine and glamorous flower, and gazing upon her can evoke feelings of excitement and passion. It is little wonder that the Tiger Lily has become an important Homeopathic remedy for female problems. The homeopathic picture that has evolved from many careful trials, is of a haughty, domineering woman, her sense of self-importance is such that her very presence makes lesser mortals cower. An example from popular culture would be Corrie's Sylvia Cropper, the outspoken mother of café owner Roy.
Homeopathy as suffered much in the press, but despite this many dedicated individuals pursue this discipline. I emphasise dedication because the homeopathic properties of any remedy are found by testing its effects on healthy subjects - usually students! To accomplish this a sample is ground up with mortar and pestle and then subject to a series of dilutions, which are vigorously agitated at each stage. These dilutions determine the potency of the final product.
The properties of the original sample are of course, the same as those reported by chemists, herbalists, and sometimes from reported cases of poisoning. The information from all these sources is invaluable as it gives an impression of its potential impact on our body. As you would intuitively expect Homeopathic dilution reduces the most harmful effects of the original substance. In a serial dilution of 6c there is very little of the original substance left. This is, by and large, depending on the toxicity of the substance, considered to be the lowest potency that is safe to prescribe without poisoning the subject. The effects of this potency are quite physical. Higher potencies tend to effect the emotional and mental spheres.
Quite a remarkable picture has emerged from the trials of Tiger Lily (these are known as provings)
Participants in past provings reported a feeling of disconnection and aloofness. It is quite an irritable and humourless state and offence is easily taken because there is a feeling that her 'beautific' state must never be besmirched by anything remotely vulgar. It is as if this sense of poise is really quite fragile and can easily be overwhelmed by ordinary feelings.
There is conflict between that which is fine and respectable and that which is deemed unworthy. Sexual feelings do arise and they play havoc with this sense of poise.
No wonder Tiger Lily has a reputation as a wonderful remedy during the menopause, helping the natural expression of sexual feelings and easing many of the concomitant physical symptoms.
Among the various Materia Medica books we use, I always enjoy reading Leaders In Homoeopathic Therapeutics, written by E B Nash. In spite of my attachment to his book, I used to feel that Nash was a fool, because he has not given the drugs in the alphabetical order. It is a real headache to find out the remedy we need to read. I always wondered why B Jain has repeated the same mistake he had done. They could have arranged the drugs in alphabetical order while reprinting, but given only the…
In chronic diseases, Homeopathy needs prolonged treatment to completely cure the disease. During the process of treatment, we observe the appearance of various symptoms of detoxification through various routes, which disturb the patients. These processes of elimination of toxins are generally irritating to the patients. But without these disturbing symptoms, the complete cure cannot be achieved.
But the homeopathic physicians face hurdles to convince the patients not to use any…
I will discuss with you the approach of AIDS by the great homeopaths Peter Fraser, Peter Chapel and Misha Norland. As homeopaths we have to understand and treat AIDS "homeopathically" and not just by the name of the disease. Let us begin by understanding the evolution of the man, evolution of society and the miasmatic theory. All are interrelated with each other.…

The Gleanings-VII Abdomen

[Among the viscera of the abdomen liver stands out conspicuously. It is the ruling organ of the abdominal cavity. The quality of life depends on the quality of health and functionality of the liver. I’ve given the largest space to the liver in this chapter. The Organ Remedies of the liver are discussed first.

The Gleanings VIII Rectum and Stool
Dr. M. A. USMANI
[Carroll Dunham has said somewhere that the positive symptoms of the homeopathic material medica, are the characteristics, i.e. colors, odors, and consistency of the body discharges, as e.g. of stools, urine, leucorrhea, nasal discharges and phlegm; and also the color and configuration of tongue. I think he was right. These are certainly positive symptoms which should make our selection of the…
