Creating Waves of Awareness
The use of B. Coli in coli infections or cases of typhoid with loose stools and tympanites and pain in abdomen: in these cases sometimes temperature tends to be very obtuse and does not come down properly. Of course, in these cases, B. Coli in 200th or 30th potencies can be tried as a isopathic remedy but the best remedy I find indicated in such cases in METHYLENE BLUE in 6th potency.

Wikipedia | Balantidium coli is a parasitic species of ciliate protozoan that causes the disease Balantidiasis. It is the only member of the ciliate phylum known to be pathogenic to humans.
Human balantidiasis occurs worldwide; it is most prevalent in tropical and subtropical regions and developing countries. B. coli generally occurs among pigs in warmer climates and monkeys in the tropics. Infection in humans is therefore also more common in those areas, especially in settings where hygiene is poor. Porcine fecal contamination of water or food consumed by humans is the principal means for acquisition of infection by humans . Transmission between humans can occur via the fecal-oral route.
Transmission of balantidiasis occurs via ingestion of cysts. Following ingestion, excystation occurs in the small intestine and the trophozoites colonize the large intestine. The trophozoites reside in the lumen of the large intestine of humans and animals, where they replicate by binary fission; conjugation may also occur. Trophozoites undergo encystation to produce infective cysts. Some trophozoites invade the wall of the colon and multiply; some return to the lumen and disintegrate. Mature cysts are passed in the stool. Source
Clinical Experience with Some Rare Nosodes
S. K. Ghosh shares his clinical experience with rare nosodes, such as Insulin, Thyroidinum, and Lac vaccinum defloratum.
I have great pleasure in presenting before the profession some uncommon nosodes which have proved very useful to me, on many occasions, when indicated remedies failed to produce desired effect. I have been working with these remedies for more than twenty years and have them clinically verified over and over again. Now, I place before the Homoeopathic profession my experience about these remedies with full confidence that they would also meet with success in their private practice if the directions laid down in this booklet are followed with care and precision.
Insulin was the first nosode which attracted my notice in adynamia with suppurative condition, and liver troubles. Next, I worked with Thyroidinum and Lac vaccinum defloratum in my private cases as well as in hospitals. Pituitarin was the last of the four nosodes taken up by me. At present, I have been working with Testicular hormone, the findings of which are not yet complete for publication.
I would request my readers to go through the descriptive portion of drug with cases carefully and try to get into sprit of the drugs, which is very difficult to express but easily felt if properly approached and applied.
I hope the book will be of great help in the treatment of very many complex and one-sided cases and inspire conviction in the truth of Homoeopathy in the hearts of physicians and infuse confidence in the minds of patients undergoing this superb system of healing art—the priceless contribution of our Master Hahneman to the cause of suffering humanity.
