Renal Colic: Cantharis
“One of the best remedies; it relieves the patient by lessening the local irritation and thus let nature to get rid of stone, with less suffering to the patient. Other remedies for renal calculi colic are: Nux.v., Lyc., Bell., Berb.” (CMM p.191)
Nephralgia and Renal Colic from Passage of Stone: Arg.N.
“Little attention is paid on the action of Arg.n. on kidneys. Nephralgia from the congestion of kidneys, or from passage of calculi. The face is of a rather dark hue and has a dried up look. There is dull aching across the small of back and also over the region of the bladder. The urine burns while passing and the urethra feels as if swollen. There is sudden urging to urinate. The urine is dark and contains blood, or, else, a deposit of renal epithelium and uric acid. It is especially useful when Cantharis, which it resembles, fails.
NITRIC ACID is to be thought of for urinary calculi when the urine contains oxalic acid, and when that substance is the principal ingredient of the stone.” (CMM P. 610)
Renal Colic: Tabacum & Nux.v.
A characteristic difference between Tab., and Nux.v. is well brought out in their respective application to renal colic. In Nux. There is pain down the right ureter into the genitals and leg, nausea and vomiting; in Tabacum, pains down the ureter, with deathly sickness and cold sweat. (CMM p.182)
Agonizing Colic from Passage of Renal Calculi: Arnica
Agonizing pain in back and hips from passage of calculi: piercing pain as if knives were plunged into renal region. Violent tenesmus of bladder, chilly and inclined to vomiting. (Lilienthal, p. 110)
Renal Colic with Sensation of Passing Calculus: Med. & Brucea
Renal colic with Nausea and Vomiting: Ipomea
Intense soreness over left kidney, with paroxysms of pain along the ureters as well as in the back; always accompanied with nausea and vomiting. [Same symptoms with nausea but in right kidney: OCIMUM CAN.] After the attack red urine with brickdust sediments, or discharge of large quantities of blood with the urine. Thick turbid, purulent urine, depositing a white albuminous sediment; urine saffron color; with an intolerable smell of musk. (Lilienthal, 111)

[“A clinical syndrome due to the renal failure, resulting from either disease of the kidneys themselves, or from disorders elsewhere in the body which induces kidney dysfunction, and which results in gross biochemical disturbance in the body, including retention of urea and other nitrogenous substances in the blood. Depending on the case, it may or may not be reversible. The fully developed syndrome is characterized by nausea, vomiting, headache, hiccough, weakness, dimness of vision, convulsions and coma.”]
Uremia: Amon. Carb.
“The symptoms which I am going to give you are not only characteristic of Am.c. in uremia, but also in any other disease in which this remedy may be indicated. We may find them present in Scarlatina with decomposition of the blood; and also in heart disease. The symptoms indicating this drug are: somnolence or drowsiness with rattling of large bubbles in the lungs, grasping at flocks, bluish and purplish hue of the lips from lack of oxygen in the blood, and brownish color to the tongue. This is a picture of blood-poisoning from the presence of Carbolic Acid. This may be in uraemia , or it may be in catarrh of the lungs, or in any other disease, in which there is deficient oxygenation. The nearest analogues here are Antimonium Tart., Carbo Veg., and Arsenicum.” (CMM 659)
Uraemia with Complete Anuria: Pic. Acid
Uremia with Acute Atrophy of Brain and Medulla: Phosphorus

Incontinence from Atony of the Muscular Coats of the meatus: Hep.S.
When the urine is voided it passes slowly_it drops almost perpendiculously from the meatus urinarious, instead of being ejected with some force. It takes the patient some time to empty the bladder. If with this trouble of the bladder you find wetting of the bed at night, Heper is the remedy. It is however not often indicated in this condition. In this vesical paresis one should compare Caust., Con., Gels., Kali Phos., Op., and Sep.(CMM)

Enuresis due to vesical atony. Constant dribbling. Urine pale and albuminous. Diabetes with large quantities of low specific gravity urine. (Boericke)
Cystitis, Chronic: Thlaspi B. Past
Dysurea, spasmodic retention of urine.
Chronic cystitis, as well as in the semi paralytic condition of the bladder, like Aloe., Nux.v., and Staph., the patient has to strain hard at stool in order to urinate. There is also very feeble flow, and much difficulty in voiding urine. (CMM)
Polyurea, Urates increased, Phosphates Decreased: Thymol.

Excessive Urates in Urine: Kali Carb.
Kali-c causes great exhaustion in the muscular system; and it is infrequently in this kind of exhaustion that urates are excessive in the urine.
CAUSTICUM: This condition of urine, loaded with urates, with utter exhaustion, is also found under other remedies. Perhaps the best agent is Causticum. Unless other symptoms of the case bring out some other remedy, Caust. would be the best candidate on the strong urate sumptom, having heavy deposits in the urine.
SENNA: still another remedy for this symptom is Senna. It is one of the best remedies in the Materia Medica for simple exhaustion with excess of nitrogenous waste. (CMM p.737)
Oxaluria, Phosphaturia, Acetonuria, with increased Sp.Gravity: Senna
[Diabetes is among those diseases which are ‘treatable’ but not ‘curable’. Such diseases are mostly genetic diseases. Whatever argument contrary to this there may be, I believe that diabetes (both: type one or type two) is a genetic disease, and ipso facto incurable.
In my over forty years’ practice, the cases that I can boast of as ‘cured’ were in fact rudimentary, i.e. threshold cases; just the beginning, when the life-style change and careful medication gives you a semblance of having been ‘cured’.
We can ward off, but cannot cure, diabetes at the very outset of symptoms, by wise instructions as to modes of living, and careful selection of remedies.
For me there is not much difference between a hereditary and a genetic disease. It is only genes that uphold the heredity, I think. And in heredity we have witnessed very small structural anomalies, as, for example, a bleb of proud flesh near the concha of the ear, or the structure of the toes, vis-à-vis the whole foot, are ‘copied’ in many children.
A child is born in the form, so to say, of a chequered tapestry, which unfolds itself as the child grows in years. All the programmed flowers, leaves and branches on the tapestry go on appearing, one after the other, as the years roll on.
Homeopathic literature is replete with ‘diabetic cure’ medicines. And these are mentioned under the rubrics for the ‘urine sugar’ or ‘glycosuria’, as the blood tests were not in vogue, in the beginning of homeopathy.
But let the search go on. I’ve mentioned many remedies for glycosuria. Let’s find more. May we be able some day to find a pathologic or homeopathic similimum for glycosuria or diabetes. MAU]
