But I must apologize.  Sometimes Youtube yanks videos unbeknownst to me due to copyright issues!  But you can still learn a lot based on the discussion about the video that follows.  I try to check in with these articles  from time to time to make sure the videos are still there.  If not, I try to find another source and repost.  Sometimes all sources have dried up; so, I certainly apologize for that!
As you know, I write for the hpathy.com monthly ezine called “Homeopathy 4 Everyone”.  (Please go to hpathy.com and subscribe–it’s free!)  One of my columns every month is a case quiz.  Readers are asked to guess the remedy; the answer appears in the next issue as: “Revisiting: (last month’s quiz)”; hence, the quiz along with the answer always starts with the word “Revisiting”, which explains some of the titles you see below.
Usually I give a clinical case but sometimes we have fun with “characters”–people from television, the movies, composers, cartoon characters, etc., it’s a good way to make constitutional homeopathy come to life!  Scroll down and have fun learning!
