On blowing the nose, there is pain felt in the teeth.


This wonderful drug in homeopathic medicine for cold is prepared from the substance of a tubercular abscess. It must be borne in mind that the remedy does not contain any part of the original drug substance in its material form but it contains only the dynamic powers of the drug which are brought forth by the process of potentization.

Tuberculinum is an excellent remedy for people very sensitive mentally and physically. People appearing very tired always, who have an aversion to work, and who constantly want changes are likely to respond well to Tuberculinum.

It is one of the splendid acts of homeopathy that substances labeled as inert can also be used effectively to treat a large variety of disorders.
