 NATRUM SULF occupies a very useful place in late effects of head injuries.  The mauling of mastoidectomy comes under this head and it has been our good fortune to see NATRUM SULF at work here.

Dr. Goullon.

 A condition from which the NATRUM SULF patients are liable to suffer is a fairly acute attack of Appendicitis with extreme pains in the caecal region. Apparently it is a retro-caecal appendix, because they always complain of extreme pain going right round to the back, rather than of pain over the Mc. Burney’s point; it is the type of appendix, which is associated with a degree of jaundice.  The cases in which I have seen the most striking results from NATRUM SULF have been those of appendix abscess where there has been a retrocaecal appendix and a tendency for the inflammation to track up and conditions suggesting a sub-phrenic abscess. I have never seen a sub-phrenic abscess cleared up with NATRUM SULF but have seen several cases now in which there was a definite tracking inflammation going up under the liver; with a nasty, swinging temperature, cases which have been operated on and were obviously going to the bad and in which there was a tendency to involvement of the chest, particularly the left lower lobe, and they cleared up in the most astonishing way on NATRUM SULF.

Dr. D. M. Borland, M.B., Ch.B.

The strongest remedy in my experience for LEUKEMIA is NATRUM SULF.

Dr. Bellokossey.

 In some cases of asthma of children, where, in addition to the wheezing and frequency of attack, there is the great prostration one would expect in ARSENIC and ARSENIC palliates only, try NATRUM SULF.  It has saved the day in such cases. I mean cures and by cure I mean that it not only clears up untoward symptoms by bringing the patient to an improved state of health.

Dr. T. K. Moore, M.D.

 If there is a history of slow or precipitate labor, use of forceps, and or slowness in recovery from birth, or difficulty in taking solids later, head injury remedies, NATRUM SULF, NATRUM MUR or CICUTA VIROSA may be required.

Dr. Foubister, M.B., Ch.B., D.C.H. etc.

I should like to add a point in reference to the intense occipital pains in NATRUM SULF.  NATRUM SULF is a very valuable remedy in emotional states, on conditions of the Pons and Cerebellum.

Dr. J. W. Waffensmith.

 I find that NATRUM SULF very useful in overcoming the bad effects of typhoid injections.

Dr. F.C.E. Schnider.

 NATRUM SULF is Schuessler’s specific for epidemic Influenza, where it has given a good account of itself.

Dr. T.K. Moore, M. D.

NATRUM SULF is sometimes is sometimes very well indicated in acute hip joint disease, particularly, when it is the right hip which is affected.

Dr. D.M. Borland, M.B., Ch.B.

One point in the digestive upset of NATRUM SULF is that whether it is a gall bladder or liver upset or whether it is an appendix, concurrently with the attack, the patients are liable to get suppurative conditions about the root of the nails.  I have verified that several times. A patient with a chronic liver who whenever he is getting a slight increase of disturbance, begins to develop suppurating places round his nails, will very often run into NATRUM SULF.

Dr. D. M. Borland, M.B., Ch.B.

I find this remedy very useful in cases of bad effects following head injuries.  It is also very useful in cases of Jaundice and in many cases of dyspepsia.



Tai Chi is a Chinese therapy.  Tai Chi is motion, unity, and a dance where there is a surrendering to the natural flow of the energy of the universe.

Tai Chi originated from a Taoist monk named Chang San-feng.  He was inspired into Tai Chi after watching a magpie attacking a snake.  The snake teased the magpie and always remained out of its grasp by twirling, wriggling, curling and spiral motion.  Similar movements are an integral part of Tai Chi.

Tai Chi means “Supreme Ultimate” and Ch’uan means “fist or boxing”.  Tai Chi is different from Kung Fu or Karate, which are aggressive martial art forms.  Tai Chi is sublime and replaces aggression and hostility with sensitivity and the capacity to yield to an overwhelming calmness.

Tai Chi is a process of exploring the body and the mind through creative movement and reflects the fact that “Nature is always in motion”.

Persons practicing Tai Chi experience transformation and sense of vitality in the body.  In Tai Chi, all movements complement each other.  According to Chang Sen-feng, the inner strength is rooted in the feet, developed in the thighs, controlled by the waist and expressed through the fingers.  There are various forms of Tai Chi, Yang and Wu, but they tend to overlap.

Today the best-known international exponent of Tai Chi is Al Chung Liang Huang who has taught in the U.S. and the Far East.  Al Huang teaches that Tai Chi is a form of Self-actualization in keeping with other Holistic philosophies and emphasizes the inter-relatedness of the mind and body and the unimposed flow of energy through them.


Tai Chi is a process of self-discovery like Yoga and demonstrates the link between the body movement, the posture, and contemplative states of being.  Tai Chi helps one achieve serenity in the midst of activity. It teaches us that we live in an inner as well as an outer world – the inner domain of thought and reflection and the outer one of force and action.  Tai Chi resolves shows us how we can blend both these domains and achieve a sense of unity and fulfillment.
