Creating Waves of Awareness
A few days back, I received a call from my junior colleague Dr P. asking suggestions for the treatment of his baby - a case of diarrhea since 2 days. She also had vomiting, especially after feeding and giving any water. The stomach was distended with gas, and there was rumbling noise in the abdomen. The stools were profuse watery like rice water, with forceful evacuation. The baby was irritable with frequent cries, may be due to colic.
He had given the following drugs one after the other, with no positive response.
Initially Sulphur 200 was given, but no response.
Then Chamomilla 200 was given, but again no change.
And finally he was giving China 200, but the condition was getting worse.
The number of stools increased and the child became inactive due to dehydration, hence he admitted the baby in the hospital for giving only IV fluids. The pediatrician diagnosed the case as viral diarrhea. On his request, the pediatrician allowed him to continue homeopathy (China 200).
After getting these details through phone conversation, I asked a few more details. But he could not give more, mainly because he was in real tension. (This really happens whenever our own kids suffer). He then asked me, “Shall I request them to start modern medicine?” Actually, his wife and other family members were forcing him to start modern medicine!
I suggested him to wait for one more day. On the basis of available symptoms, I suggested Jatropha (Purging nut) 30 C. He brought the same medicine from the pharmacy, and one drop was mixed in a glass of pure water. One spoon of medicated water was given to the baby. I asked them to repeat only when there is no change after a few hours.
Next day, he called me to tell that the baby is much better, and has passed stools twice, that too normally formed stools. She also started playing within a few hours after the first dose!
Important drugs for forceful stools:
Jatropha, Elaterium, Gratiola, Natrum carb, Podophyllum, Gambogia, Croton tig, Thuja, Verat alb, etc.
Certain points to be considered:

Start up company uses Jatropha plant for energy | The seeds of the inedible, drought-resistant plants, called jatropha, produce a prize: high-quality oil that can be refined into low-carbon jet fuel or diesel fuel. The company has deals to plant 250,000 acres of jatropha in Brazil, India and other countries expected to eventually produce about 70 million gallons of fuel a year.
Hmmm, I have faced similar predicament with my babies.
It will nice to reflect and find how you could have got it right the first time. What did your colleague miss observing ? Any causative?
Rice water, forceful, unable to retain water : looked Verat Alb to me.
Some times small remedies like that can give good result.
