Fear of the Roller coaster. Fear of descending stairs.

This remedy is derived from the bicarbonate of soda and it was Dr. Hahnemann who proved it.

THE KEYNOTE SYMPTOM OF THIS REMEDY IS ‘DREAD OF DOWNWARD MOTION’. It is a useful remedy for those who dread taking a ride on roller coasters, giant wheels etc.

It is also useful in children who have fear of falling and a dread on looking down.

It is also useful for those persons who have a dread on walking down a flight of stairs.


ANOTHER KEYNOTE SYMPTOM is that this remedy is useful for Mouth ulcers. It is useful in sore mouths, worse after eating salty or sour food.


It is a useful remedy when children wake up suddenly from the sleep and scream, grasping the sides of the cradle, without any apparent cause.

It is also extremely suitable for extremely nervous persons, who are easily frightened by the slightest noise or unnatural sharp sounds.

It suits women with a shiny red nose.


It is used in Enteropion, a condition where the eyelashes turn inward, causing inflammation of the eye, especially on the outer canthus, where the margins of the lids are very sore.


It is useful for babies with oral thrush infection.

It is a useful remedy when the child has burning urine and screams while passing urine.

This remedy is also useful for fungal infections in the vagina.

This remedy is used in sterility as it favors conception. It is also useful in leucorrhoea, which is profuse, albuminous, and starchy with a sensation, as if warm water were flowing down the vagina, in the inter-menstrual period. This discharge is acrid and like that of the white of an egg.

The patient is always worse after downward motion, noise, and smoking and in warm weather.

The patient is better by pressure, in the evening and in cold weather. It is also useful in subjects, in whom the slightest injuries suppurate.

This remedy is suitable for subjects who are worse from downward motion, from sudden noise, smoking, and damp cold weather and before urinating.

It also suits subjects who are better from pressure and holding the painful side with the hand.
Inflammatory stricture in the rectum: BORAX.

Dr. Tyler, M.D.
It is the observation of Dr. Gowers that BORAX is useful in Psoriasis.

Dr. Hughes, L.R.C.P.


BORAX acts on the majority of cases of Airsickness, because it is the sudden dip, which affects most people, and particularly their terror of falling. I have had a number of cases in which I have completely stopped air- sickness by 3 or 4 doses of BORAX before they have started flying.

Dr. D. M. Borland, M.D.
This remedy is magical for mouth ulcers (aphthous ulcers). The results are amazing. When it works, it works faster than Metronidazole, or Vitamins or even steroid, which are used to combat this disease in allopathic medicine. It takes away the rawness in the mouth and the patient is comfortable in a few doses. I have also found it useful in children who suddenly cry out in the sleep or while urinating.

BERBERIS has suffering and pain in persons who have been operated on for fistula-in-ano, when the fistula has closed, the pains will come on if it is a BERBERIS case.

Dr. L. J. Hord.

BERBERIS is an excellent remedy for renal colic. The pains are of a shooting character. The patient cannot make the slightest motion and must sit bent over towards the painful side to obtain relief. If in addition, he complains of sharp darting pains following the direction of the ureter and extending into the hip, there is no remedy like BERBERIS. Dr. Farrington, M.D.

In gouty swelling of the big toe with scanty urine, I found BERBERIS VULGARIS coming to my air, when other usual drugs failed to relieve.
Dr. Jugal Kishore, B.Sc., D.M.S.
I have found this remedy useful in expelling small renal stones and ameliorating cases of renal colic. Very often small stones dissolve when alternated with another remedy called as SARSAPARILLA. Of course, being primarily an allopathic physician, I have selected my patients very carefully. With new modalities in Allopathic medicine like, Lithotripsy and other measures, I generally prefer to use it post-operatively and somehow, it also seems to prevent the recurrence of renal stones, although there is little evidence to prove it. I have never dared to use it in Acute Cholecystitis with Gallstones, where the treatment of choice in my book would be Surgery.

Dr Hering, M.D.

Ganglions were dispersed by BENZOIC ACID given internally in the dilutions from the 12th to the 30th.

Dr. Turrel.

I have myself frequently obtained much reduction in the size of the ganglion, situated at the back of the wrist by the external application of BENZOIC ACID as an ointment.

Dr. Hughes, L.R.C.P.


I have found this remedy useful in gout and it does reduce the given over a long period of time. Surprisingly, it is useful in cystitis in the elderly and works well if the urine is strongly malodorous. Well! This is something that allopathic physicians will find hard to digest.
