Creating Waves of Awareness
Synovial fluid may be classified into normal, noninflammatory, inflammatory, septic, and hemorrhagic.
Here William Boericke says, “pain in joints as if they lacked oil.” I think he meant noninflammatory reduction as is seen in following clinical conditions like, osteoarthritis stage 1 and 2, trauma and NEUROPATHIC ARTHROPATHY common in diabetes and sciatica.
I am in and I am going to try and report back to you.
As far as the pathological similimum is concerned, there was a divide from the time of Hahnemann.Some were of the opinion, that though Homeopathic medicines can cure pathology, yet the selection must be based on totality of the symptoms.
At the same time, we can't ignore the findings , like Gnaphalium, for the case of joint troubles due to less production of synovial fluid.We must give it a sincere try and find the result and analyse the same.
I will like to quote Dr. H. C. Allen, in this context:
A clinical symptom when it has been verified a number of times, for anything I can see to the contrary, is to all intents and purposes as good as the best proved symptom in the world.
