Babloo, now 10 years, could not be relieved of ‘Bed wetting’ habit, despite many treatments. In evaluating the case history critically, we found that his younger sister, 6 years old, was also suffering from the same trouble.
The parents of the children were over-strict, and therefore they were forced to live under strict self-control during the day-time.
It was only at night during sleep that the suppressed feelings of the children found vent by freely passing urine unhampered by any physical controls. CHERRY PLUM was given T.D.S for mind losing control over action (urinating), even though it happened during sleep. In a week’s time the children had shed-off their old habit of bed-wetting.
In the negative CHERRY PLUM state the person loses contact with his Higher Self and loses the valuable guidance which alone can steer clear of the turbulent impulses that disturb the mind at times, and some-times lead to insane acts.
In the positive CHERRY PLUM STATE, the person remains always cool and collected with Reason (and not Impulse) in the driver’s seat guiding all physical and mental activity with active participation of his HIGHER SELF.

Bleeding is frightening. Bleeding from the nose is fairly frequent, as is bleeding from a tooth socket or a cut. But a sudden hemorrhage from the lungs or the vomiting of fresh blood or the passing of blood in the urine or in the bowel movements is a cause of anxiety. Because the appearance of blood from the interior of the body is shocking, the statements of people as to the amount of blood lost are seldom dependable. A teaspoonful may seem like a pint. Blood in the stomach or intestines when it appears in the stools has a black or tarry appearance, but it takes at least an eighth of a pint to make the coloration visible.
The severity of the shock that may come from internal bleeding depends on the amount lost and the suddenness with which it occurs. Fever may occur after a hemorrhage, particularly a large one.
The most common cause of vomiting of blood – in forty to eighty per cent of cases – is ulcer of the stomach, or duodenum. Usually the person concerned will have had a previous diagnosis of ulcer. The bleeding usually comes from erosion of a blood vessel in the ulcer. In about five per cent of the cases the cause of vomiting of blood is cancer; that is the reason for having a complete and scientific diagnosis as promptly as possible when this symptom occurs. Hardening of the liver and enlargement of the spleen may back up the circulation so that there are varicose veins in the esophagus or swallowing tube; like other varicose veins these may break and cause the person afflicted to vomit blood. Among miscellaneous and less frequent causes are diseases of the blood like hemophilia and thrombocytopenia in which bleeding is easy.
The first step after vomiting of blood or large hemorrhage from the bowel is to control shock and save life; then comes a careful scientific study to determine the cause and prevent additional bleeding.

The DCCT cohort was less than 39 years old at entry and was followed for only a mean of 6.5 years. Epidemiologic data had previously suggested that coronary artery disease may become apparent in most type 1 patients only after age 40. Therefore, the macrovascular disease rates in the DCCT were low, and no significant differences between intensive vs. standard management were seen. However, trends suggested a beneficial effect of intensive management to reduce the number of; pooled major macrovascular events. An event was defined as death secondary to cardiovascular disease or sudden death, acute myocardial infarction, coronary artery bypass surgery or angioplasty, angina confirmed by angiography, or ischemic changes on noninvasive testing. In addition, major cardiovascular events (fatal or nonfatal stroke) and major peripheral vascular events (amputation, bypass or angioplasty, or claudication with objective evidence) were included.
The number of macrovascular events (40) in the conventionally treated group was greater than that in the intensively treated group (23), but the differences were not statistically significant (p = 0.08). Mean total serum cholesterol and calculated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol were lower in the intensively treated group (p < 0.01), suggesting that long-term benefits may occur.
