Creating Waves of Awareness

Berberis vulgaris in alternation with Urtica urens

In most cases of renal calculi, Berberis vulgaris and Urtica Urens mother tinctures alternately in drop doses have worked wonders. In some cases after a week I gave berberis in 3X alternating with Urtica Q. Within four weeks the stones were expelled either in small pieces or in the form of sand. I must admit I was not so successful with these remedies in bladder stones.

Trying to find why near-specifics work in most cases, I present the idea that in these particular conditions they are able to remove the present and uppermost layer which is dominant over all other symptoms. Meaning that specific condition needing specific remedy. Drainage remedies also work in a similar way by improving the condition of a particular vital organ and removing the uppermost layer. The vital force thus unburdened is then able to express itself in symptoms that through repertorisation indicating a similimum.

Using near-specifics is not practicing homeopathy in allopathic way. It is within the bounds of classic homeopathy and it does not replace the need for a similimum, rather it knocks out a barrier to clear the way for indicated remedies. Burnett has very successfully used the drainage remedies and intercurrents on the same principle.

I would like to have the comments of members on this issue.

Practioner's Guide to Gall Bladder- and Kidney Stones

by Dr Shiv Dua

Includes general information on pathology as well as homeopathic treatment.

In the case of gall bladder and kidney stones, the average preference of the patient is to go for surgery although many patients seek the help of homoeopathy as a last resort. At this juncture, homoeopaths have to show their excellence and learn management of these diseases. This book is written for learners and practitioners to combine and integrate their concept and skill into practical objectives of success. The book is also designed to sufficiently educate students on the functioning of the concerned organs. The book also depicts a realistic approach experienced by reputed physicians and authors of books to allow readers to consider remedies adopted by them.

Kidneys and Bladder — Basis of Self-Realisation

Rosina Sonnenschmidt

Volume 5: Organ - Conflict - Cure
With Homeopathy, Naturopathy and Exercises

The kidney energy encompasses issues such as security, resoluteness and stability. If something “gets you in the kidneys” (as in the German phrase), it generates an existential anxiety about the ground under your feet giving way.

There are comprehensive descriptions of diseases affecting the kidneys and the ureters, such as kidney stones, glomerulonephritis, renal insufficiency, malignant tumors, renal hypertension, cystitis, urinary disturbances and enuresis, as well as problems with the adrenal glands, such as Addison's disease or Cushing's syndrome. 

The book also discusses underlying conflicts and treatment associated with these illnesses. Homeopathic remedies that have proved especially valuable in this respect include Arsenicum album, Caesium, Uranium, Plutonium, Salicylicum acidum, Cisplatin and Paracetamol. Naturopathic therapy consists of nutritional advice and herbal medicines, as well as ozonated plant oils (rizols) and deacidification.

Rosina Sonnenschmidt has again demonstrated that she can effectively synthesize a variety of approaches such as the Chinese theory of correspondences and various Western approaches. The result is an easily understandable practical manual on therapies suitable for treating diseases of the kidneys and bladder. She goes well beyond the level of the physical integrity of the organs themselves, and demonstrates how these organs form the gateway to self-realization.

Coping with Chemotherapy Using Homoeopathy

By Laura Fenton

A Family Guide

The isolation, fear and host of inexplicable emotions a person goes through after learning that they have cancer far eclipses any psychological crisis experienced by his or her immediate family members. One quickly learns the first rule of cancer support: unless you have had cancer yourself, you have no way of understanding what the person who has been diagnosed is going through. Any attempts to pretend to understand or identify with them will be counter-productive for everyone. Emotional support in the form of love, encouragement and acceptance of what is happening is the best thing one can offer a loved-one faced with a battle against cancer. What most families are not aware of, however, is that there is a way for you to play a more therapeutic role in healing the person you love. The purpose of this guide is to show you how.

I was in my second year of studying Homoeopathic Medicine when my husband Jonathon was diagnosed with a lymphatic tumor the size of a football. What was presumed by his doctor to be a kidney stone, turned out to be the worst news a young couple with three preschoolers could hear.

In our case, the time span between diagnosis and biopsy was the worst part of our nightmare. Feelings of uncertainty, helplessness and pure physical pain dominated Jonathon's every waking moment, stretching our emotional resources to the limit. Only after a plan of action was settled upon, did the nightmare begin to lift. Jonathon was out of the physical pain from the tumor literally minutes into his first chemo treatment. That was a sign that things were going to turn up (and there was no where to go but up from where we were!). Not only did the chemo treatment look promising, it also gave us a point of reference and enabled us to once again establish a routine in our lives. It provided us with a mission to focus on and this gave us back some sense of control.

Our job was to keep Jonathon healthy and positive during and between treatments in order for the chemo to fight his cancer most effectively. It soon became obvious that recovering quickly after each treatment would be the key to success. The side effects from the chemo drugs became the biggest hurdle to be overcome.

in my practice Lyco and Pulsatilla cured most cases. I try to fit remedy according to symptoms. small remedies like Sars, Berberis-v etc also work when the symptoms agree. Last days a case was not clearing and a homeopath friend suggested me to give Hydandia Q. When I studied the remedy it didn't match. Sarsaparilla seemed to be the nearest, I applied it in 6C and it benefited the case.

Dear colleagues,
As you are writing about kidneys. I would like to ask you about any experience in the case of kidney failure - degeneration of the renal parenchima, no high blood pressure
Thank you

As we are discussing renal calculi, I would like to add the following for information, though it has nothing to do with "Specific" or "near specific".

Action of Homeopathic medicine on kidney are four fold:






In my experience renal colic with stones in kidney Pareira Brava expelled out a stone in a patient who had complained of excruciating pain and blood in urine. I have kept that stone as a record. While in Kuwait my supervisor an Arab suffered from recurrent renal stones. He was given BerB V in tincture with his constitutional medicine. He also expelled a stone and kept it to show it to his colleagues. I asked him for it for my record.

beriberis itself in 15-20 drops 3-4 times a day is found to be effective to expel stones.
i have not tried this two medicines in alternative method. these types of approaches may be efficient in some cases of stone in which the acute sufferings is to be corrected.
lyco and nux usually comes near specific in renal stone. oscimum is effective to relieve pain.

This is a fantastic topic and could also be included in the Specifics Group. So many people have this problem today. I don't know whether it is their diet or the minerals in the water, emotions, functional problem or other. Could learn alot.
Comment by Dr Muhammed Rafeeque on September 14, 2009 at 1:39am
Apart from Berberis and Urtica, drugs like sarsaparilla, pariera, calcarea renalis, lycopodium, tabacum, nux vom,hydrangia, ocimum can, thalaspi bursa ect are useful. A few months back, I made a statical analysis of cured cases of renal calculi. I found that Nux vom in 200 potency ranked high as it could break the stones in many cases. Still I say, individual approach is needed to remove the root cause. But these near specifics can surely remove the acute sufferings, which is also impotant to maintain our practice.
