    Single-dose-cure for the current epidemic Swine flu prevalent today in many parts of India—Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan etc. During the years 2006-2008, for the then epidemic chikungunya disease, all homoeopathic pracioners had been giving different remedies for weeks together with little relief. The undersigned is the first to declare that the homoeopathic remedy Polyporus Officinalis (otherwise called Boletus Laricis) 1000X is almost a specific for chikungunya and with this remedy, our students had been curing lakhs and lakhs of chikungunya victims in the western part of India (with just one single pill of this remedy.) (Rate of success: more than 99%.) Homoeopaths are now asking me for medicine for the present pandemic swine flu. Those who had died in hospitals with swine flu had lung failure; disease of lung that kills the patient is ‘pneumonia’. In the homoeopathy reference work HOMOEOPATHIC THERAPEUTICS by Dr. Samuel Lilienthal’s on page 874-875 (in the chapter PNEUMONIA) under two remedies, viz., Mercurius (the full name Merc-sol.) and Ferrum met. we find the words “epidemic pneumonia.” The two remedies were studied in the 10-volume Hering’s Materia Medica and the symptoms of the remedy Merc-sol. agrees with the symptoms of patients afflicted by swine flu. Patients who had come to me after being tested positive for swine flu were given ONLY ONE SINGLE PILL of the homoeo medicine Merc-sol-1000X, and in just an hour’s time they got complete cure and after a week when they were tested for swine flu, the result was negative. (Rate of success: 99%.) In the case of a patient who was admitted in a leading hospital in Chennai for swine flu, the attending doctors could not bring down the fever even after fourteen days of treatment. This patient heard of this circular, got Merc-sol-1000X from us by sending his son. Just took one pill and in an hour’s time the fever came down and he felt completely all right, got voluntary discharge from hospital and came straight to our office for thanking us. For prevention, the same remedy Merc-sol. 1000X may be given one dose (one pill, chewable, taken any time) once a month for three months. This prevents swine flu for six months from the date of taking the first dose. This remedy Merc-sol in any other potency (viz., Merc-sol-200 or Merc-sol-1000) is not at all effective for swine flu. If you want to get 5ml pack of 70 pills of Merc-sol-1000X, you may just send money order or bank draft for Rs.750=00 in favor of Dr. V. Krishnaamurthy, payable at Chennai on any bank to the address given below: (No online transfer please.)

Armstrong landed on moon. Some particle of the moon’s dust sticking on his shoes and also leg of the satellite. Quarantine both the astronaut and the satellite but it is a big eye-wash. The chemistry, physics, gravitational pull etc. of the moon is entirely different from that of our earth—both are highly incompatible. Even a small particle from the surface of the moon brought by Armstrong touching our earth, after an incubation period of fifty years or so, would make the earth reacting violently. Evidence to support this is available in plenty in unpublished works. One of the worst consequences is the outbreak of epidemics one after the other. Now, EPIDEMIC MALARIA IS BREAKING OUT. Symptoms are: "Chill, no thirst and no appee, sleepiness and tiredness." See page 409 of the reference book HOMOEOPATHIC THERAPEUTICS by Dr. Samuel Lilienthal and therein you find the following exactly matching with the symptoms of the present day malaria victims. Ant-tart (Febris intermittens) - intermittents from exposure in damp cellars or bats; nausea, vomiting and anorexia; great sleepiness or irresistible inclination to sleep; < in damp cold weather, motion, lying down at night; epidemics of winter or early spring . . . chill and heat alternating during the day without thirst; cold skin, trembling and chilliness always from within outward; short chill and long-lasting heat, with somnolency and profuse sweat on forehead . . . weariness, litude, exhaustion, with great depression of spirits, neither appee nor thirst.. One single pill of the homoeopathic remedy ANTIMONIUM-TART-200 would cure the patient in just one hour time. NO NEED TO REPEAT AT ALL. The above description of the remedy Antimonium tart can also be found in my book ADVANCED HOMOEO PRACTICE under the first chapter HOW TO CURE EPIDEMIC DISEASES.
