Drosera Rotundifolia, a Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Drosera Rotundifolia, a Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

This article is mostly a visual tool to remember the remedy by.

Known commonly as the Sundew plant, this carnivorous species lives in bogs and marshes. Wet conditions suit is best, it likes to be waterlogged. Think of this picture, all the water, and the lungs filling up with mucus. You get the picture?

Project Runway’s Tim Gunn spoke to Terry Gross about being gay in the ’60s and ’70s vs. being gay today: 

"[In] the late 1960s going into the early ’70s, [being gay] was considered to be something you ‘fixed.’ This was an adolescent psychiatric hospital, so people were teens into early 20s, and there were some people there who were there to have their gayness ‘fixed.’ So for me, it was like treating a disease — you have to do something about it. … I remember thinking, ‘I have enough issues without adding this to the list.’ I thought, ‘Oh, God, but for the grace of God, there go I.’
On the one hand, I’m not envious of any young person who is going through a struggle with their sexual identity, I’m not envious at all — but on the other hand, there’s so many more and more positive role models these days. When I was kid, who were the gay people? They were the decorators in the Doris Day movies, they’re the fashion designers, they’re flitting about. I mean, I think about Paul Lynde on Bewitched, I mean, he was a caricature. And today, we recognize that every flavor of humanity comes in every possible size, and color, and shape, and we have so much more awareness of the diversity of everyone. Whenever anyone tries to stereotype gay men, it’s like, ‘Wait a minute, there’s just as many who live like slobs!’”

The premiere of season 13 of Project Runway aired last night.

Baryta: The Shy, Timid Child

Baryta: The Shy, Timid Child

Baryta Carbonica is often touted as being helpful for children who may have developmental problems, those who do not follow the norm or average in learning to walk, talk and who lack self-confidence. They are very shy and want to hide behind their mothers’ skirts.

It is also an important remedy in old age, the forgetfulness of the elderly, who cannot remember names, or words, or what they wanted…
