Schwabe News Volume 4 | Issue 10-12 | October – December 2013
Dr. Willmar Schwabe has been exporting its homoeopathic products from Germany to all over the world and its products have been in the undivided Indian market since over a century ago. When the country was divided during independence, their export had continued to the subcontinent. Recently, Schwabe had celebrated completion of 60 years of good business in Pakistan. It was a grant event organised jointly by Schwabe Germany and its four importers of Pakistan. It is covered under current news along with reports on the visit of around 1000 budding doctors and teaching faculties to Schwabe India modern manufacturing facility. They have recorded in our visitor book as “good learning” for them.
Continuing the series of provings by Schwabe Group, in this issue we have covered a recent proving on Luffa operculata. Though it has already been mentioned in a rubric of Boricke’s Repertory, its first homoeopathic symptomatology was communicated by Dr. Willmar Schwabe. Then it was covered by O. A. Julian and others. A combined materia medica of all proving and clinical reports along with the recent proving has been given under Provings.
A rather rarely known mother tincture Anagalis arvensis has been used for skin conditions with itching and tingling, tissue softening, destroyal of warts, and with mental like hilarity and hydrophobias. Recent studies have explored many of its activities including inhibition of herpes and poliomyelitis virus, which have attracted many researches. The details of this mother tincture has been given under mother tincture info.
A product which has been used by many parents for the proper growth of their infants is Essentia Infantia. It helps proper absorption of essential minerals, takes care of their deficiency, regulates digestive systems, etc. As the name indicates, it is essential to give to the infants. The drug profile has been covered under product watch.
This issue research news covers a clinical observation, a basic study on gene expression, and a social study on the self-medication. These diversified studies, I hope, it will find favour with those interested in mode of action of homoeopathic medicines and research knowledge seekers.
