Homeopathic medicine is suited to one's unique symptom picture not a disease name. For example the remedy, Eupatorium Pur, as described in "Johnson's Therapeutic Key", has shooting pains in the left sciatic nerve, producing a palsied sensation, especially after motion. There is gnawing in the hip bone, legs felt tired, particularly left. Neuralgia of the right shoulder, pains come instantly and go as quickly.

A book called "Johnson's Therapeutic Key" describes homeopathic medicines for the symptoms of ingrown toenails. He recommends to remove all pressure from the toes with ill fitting shoes. He recommends cutting into the toe nail and applying some salves. We of course recommend you go to doctor to have this done by a professional.

Dr. Johnson recommended four key medicines for the symptoms of ingrown toenails such as

Arsenicum: pains of a burning character, parts have a blackish look and emit a foul odour

Phosphorus: parts are hard and dry, with pain as if frozen, with easy bleeding

Silicea:  ingrown toe nails with offensive discharge, proud flesh, stings and burning. Sweaty and smelly feet

Sulphur: thin, shining, swelling of the toes, parts suppurate, proud flesh springs up which is tender and painful

Interestingly, pharmacists are the go to for any prescription. However, people don't realize that druggists have ample information on the use of pharmaceutical drugs and almost nothing on homeopathic medicines. Why is that? It is not because there is no information on homeopathy, it is because they are mostly funded by the prescription on patent drugs by medical doctors. There are the odd and awesome pharmacist who has been trained in homeopathy, most have not been.

Asking your family doctor or pharmacist for advise on homeopathy is like going to your mechanic for a hair cut. It is not within their scope of practice. If you would like to have more information on homeopathy, look at journals such as "Homeopathy" or contact a registered homeopath. You will be glad you did and get accurate information.

The name of this herbal remedy intrigued me, "Happiness Bark" aka Albizia julibrissin. This herb, toted as happiness bark has a number of excellent properties. Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners say that it

  • Helps to calm the mind
  • It helps with suppressed emotions
  • Improves heart issues due to emotional stress

     According to Natural News, "Michael Tierra, L.Ac., offers further insight into the benefits of Albizia: "Both the bark and the flowers of Albizia are used as a calming sedative in Oriental traditional medicine. Categorized in the Chinese Materia Medica as a calming spirit herb, the bark is thought to 'anchor' the spirit, while the flowers lighten it. The flowers have also been used for the treatment of insomnia, amnesia, sore throat, and confusion in Oriental traditional medicine as well as depression, melancholy, and anxiety." As a trusted Chinese herb for centuries, Albizia julibrissin brightens your day gently and safely. Peace and mental well-being are within reach with this versatile tree.http://www.naturalnews.com/034793_depression_tree_happiness.html
