Creating Waves of Awareness

A patient named R consulted me on 10th December 2011. He is working as a clerk in a foreign country. He is very busy in his job with lots of responsibilities. He does not get time for exercises, even for visiting his friends and relatives. He often gets irritable for even silly things. Now he has pain in the left renal angle, which radiates downwards. He often gets urge to urinate. He regularly takes some Ayurvedic powder for regular bowel movements.

There is history of renal calculi before 2 years that was removed surgically. Now, he himself has diagnosed that his pains are due to stones. Now he has only 15 days leave; if he does not go back, his visa will be cancelled! Hence, his relatives are forcing for surgery, so he wants to try homeopathy before going for surgery.

I prescribed Nux vomica 200, 2 doses per day, and asked him to report after 5 days.

Today morning (13th Dec 2011), his wife came to my clinic with a vial containing two stones he passed in the morning!

I am sure, they are going to refer all ‘stone patients’ to me J

Please tell how you determined the Nux and potency.

Even without a detailed case taking, I found a nux vom status in that patient, including the generals and particulars.

Regarding potency, I have only a few potencies of Nux vom: 6 X (self prepared), 30C, 200C, 1000C, and LM 1 (Q potency). Since the generals are indicating, I selected 200, or else i would have given 30. If 200 stops working I will consider higher potencies.

Very good case. 

Please tell how do you prepare Nux vom. 6x (self prepared)?

Comment by Dr Muhammed Rafeeque on December 27, 2011 at 11:23pm

Its very simple :)

Take one part of Nux v Q and 9 parts of dispensing alcohol, give 10 downward strokes. You will get nux v 1x. Make sure that the Q is not 1x, because some tinctures are actually 1x (Marketed by a few companies). Repeat the process till you get 6x. This is not always needed since we get medicines from the shops. I did this since 6x was not available in the shop. Also i wanted to do the things done by the master. I have also made a few more drugs like Myristica 6c, Croton tig 6x, etc. Actually, i do not support the Korsakoff's method, Hahnemann's method (using separate vial for each potency) is the best.

Also give other such brief cases, which will help in practice.

Comment by Dr.S.C.Kursija on September 17, 2012 at 5:04am

Nux Vomica is right medicine for renal calculi  when symptoms agree. Please give some detail of symptoms.
