TIPS FROM THE MASTERS…
MEDORRHINUM in higher potency (200 or 1,000) is a very important remedy so often neglected in chronic liver troubles with various digestive disturbances connected with infantile liver even up to the last stage. It is characterized by the sensation of burning of the palms and the feet and slight icteroid tinge of the conjunctiva.
Dr. Ghosh, M.D.
At birth, I give a dose of MEDORRHINUM if the child is inclined to be gross with a large head, if it is a little bit skinny baby that is snuffling almost al most as soon as it breathers, under weight, wrinkled and old looking, I give a dose of SYPHILINUM.
I have found MEDORRHINUM high, a good antidote to the effects of Influenza.
I have experimented more with so-called nosodes, and have had seemingly very good results from MEDORRHINUM as well as SYPHILINUM in intractable cases of chronic rheumatism. The most characteristic difference is that with MEDORRHINUM, the pains are worse in the day- time and with SYPHILIUM, in the night.
Dr. Nash, M.D.
