- Dr. Farokh Master. Sinister and evil by reputation and superstition, feared, reviled and thought of as vermin-these are common attitudes people hold towards snakes. However, herpetologists who work with Asiatic cobras known that the species is very reluctant to bite, and even when it does, it fails to inject venom in more than half of the bites. At the first provocation, the snake rears the front third of its body and spreads it's hood, facing the intruder.. Should the disturbance continue, the cobra might make several quick strikes. Sometimes these too are bluffs and the strike is made with the mouth closed. If these actions do not succeed in repelling the attacker, the snake may turn around and display the back of the hood and markings to the source of the threat. The hood is designed to give the impression that the snake's head is bigger than it really is and that the snake should be left alone. If al else fails it will make every attempt to escape or may f


- Sumit Goel. Although the poisonous secretions of toads were once employed effectively as heart tonics and that of cockroach in asthma by Chinese physicians and powdered toad skins were similarly administered in mediaeval times for the treatment of dropsy, the introduction of important therapeutic agents of animal origin has depended on the logical development of physiology, biochemistry and immunology. CLASSIFICATION OF ANIMAL DRUGS * NON-CHORDATA Non-chordates do not possess a dorsal supporting rod. They show radial or bilateral symmetry. The skeleton in these animals is absent. If present, it is always external and is made up of calcium carbonate and chitin. The heart, if present, is dorsal in position. (A) Phylum Porifera Animals belonging to phylum Porifera are multicellular and porous. Their body is supported by spongin fibres or spicules made up of calcium carbonate or silica. These are aquatic animals, mostly marine, though a few

The periodic table constitutes a valuable tool that systematizes the physical and chemical properties of the elements.:ORIGIN AND SOURCES OF HOMOEOPATHIC DRUGS

- Sumit Goel. Nature is made up of 103 plus elements and their combinations in form of mixtures and compounds. The periodic table constitutes a valuable tool that systematizes the physical and chemical properties of the elements. The utility of the periodic table lies in its ability to provide clues to the physical and chemical behaviour of the elements and their compounds. Based on periodic law, the periodic table arranges the elements into horizontal rows, with the same outermost, partly filled, major quantum groups and into vertical columns that have elements with the same valence electron structures. As a result, in any vertical group, the members exhibit similar behaviour patterns. Elements of Group O : Helium, Neon, Argon, Krypton, Xenon, Radon Elements of Group IA : Hydrogen, Lithium, Sodium, Potassium, Rubidium, Caesium, Francium Elements of Group IB : Copper, Silver, Gold Elements of Group IIA : Beryllium, Magnesium, Calcium, Strontium, Barium, Radium Elements of

Dispensing of Homoeopathic Medicines:

-Sumit Goel. Homoeopathic medicines, in the form of tinctures and solid or liquid potencies are routinely dispensed via a suitable vehicle. These are called as dosage forms. Medicines that are to be dispensed for oral use are usually in the form of tinctures, liquid potencies or in the form of powder triturates. * Mother tinctures are dispensed diluted in water or with a sweetening agent like simple syrup to mask the flavour. Alternatively, they may be converted into tincture triturates and dispensed. * Liquid potencies, which, by far, are the most frequently used form of homoeopathic medicine, are rarely dispensed in their original form as drops. This is because, these are prepared in alcohol, which has an unacceptable burning taste. Liquid potencies are dispensed - by medicating globules - by adding medicated globules to sugar of milk - by adding medicated globules and sugar of milk to distilled water - by medica

Units and measures used in Homeopathic system:

- Sumit Goel. METROLOGY Metrology is the science of weights and measures. It encompasses a study of the various systems of weights and measures, their relationships and knowledge of the mathematics involved. Weights and Measures are an accumulation of facts concerning the various systems, with tables of conversion factors and practical equivalents. METRIC SYSTEM METRIC MEASURES OF MASS - WEIGHT 1 ton = 1000 kg 1 quintal = 100 kg 1 kilogram = 1000 g 1 hectogram = 100 g 1 dekagram = 10 g 1 decigram = 1/10 g = 0.1 g 1 centigram = 1/100 g = 0.01 g 1 milligram = 1/1000 g = 0.001 g 1 microgram = 1/1000 mg = 0.000001 g 1 nanogram = 1/1000 mcg= 0.001 mcg 1 picogram = 1/1000 ng = 0.001 ng METRIC MEASURES OF CAPACITY - VOLUME 1 kiloliter = 1000 l 1 hectoliter = 100 l 1 dekaliter = 10 l 1 deciliter = 1/10 l = 0.1 l 1 centiliter = 1

External Applications:

- Sumit Goel. PHILOSOPHICAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE NATURE OF LOCAL DISEASES A study of the History of Medicine reveals the baseless belief and teachings of the Old school of Medicine that - ' Local diseases are those conditions where the external surface of the body was morbidly affected and that the rest of the body were not an integral part of the disease. ' Hahnemann termed this a theoretical, absurd doctrine, a pernicious blunder that has led to the most disastrous medical treatment. [Aphorism 185) The method of treatment in the Old school is based on the fallacious logic that a disease, manifested on the external surface of the body, i.e skin, was the 'DISEASE' itself. Hence the mode of treatment was directed at removing the manifestations and that if the outward manifestations were removed, the disease was cured. But, Hahnemann proclaimed that there couldn't be any "local disease" of the living organism. It is the INDIV
