(The Homeopathic Teatment of Diseases of the Females and Infants at the Breast, Dr. G. H. G. Jahr)




[The chapter on teeth, historically, got much attention and exercise from the homeopaths the world over. No other anatomical field got separate treatment from the masters and the scholars. Separate repertories have been constructed, by the masters and the laity, on the symptoms of toothache. Very minute and insignificant nuances have been considered and noted. Separate perforated repertories were produced by the diligent homeopaths. But no practically viable headway could be achieved. A conglomeration of a jungle of incongruous symptoms was the result. The business of the dental surgeon, and the physician did not get any setback thereby. Their prices of consultation and skill continued skyrocketing. Only the homeopathically minded patients or the pecuniarily starved people come to homeopaths in this mortifying distress.  I myself did much fretting labor   on this topic only to throw it away later on. My motto, after myself undergoing excruciating experience of toothache, is: ‘Never try homeopathic treatment more than two or three days, under a principled and seasoned homeopath; if of  no avail, consult the dental surgeon.’ There would certainly be a pathologic lesion that cannot be redressed by medicines,  and only a timely palliation by pain killers or narcotic drugs. Read my article:


Remedy for Tooth Extraction


I’ve no bad record of my dental practice. I have cured many patients, who remained cured for long. But I never did it blindly. I sometime include the surgeon in the fray, and we worked like a team. The surgeon of my team never prescribed antibiotic after the extraction of the tooth; but sent the patient to me after plugging the wound with cotton.


Homeopathy can boast of one thing without any fear of altercation: i.e. ‘but for homeopathy, many a patient would have got his jaws denuded of the row of teeth, that he was getting rid of, one after the other. Homeopathy saved their mouth and face from the disgrace of disfiguration; and looking old prematurely. Thus thereby they could get their health preserved.


Let’s now come to the therapeutic of dental health. My reader will think that I’m biased towards Merc.Sol.  This is not the case. I’m not biased. My eulogy of the king of the kings, i.e. the great Merc.sol. has the background of my rich experience of 40 years. Here, as in the whole ENT field, Merc.Sol. is unrivaled. Whatever remedy, in a well-taken case, gives relief to the painful symptoms, the case will be completed, last of all, by the deeper work of Merc.Sol.  In contradistinction to the great Doctor Clarke, I’ve used Kreosote  thrice or four times in my whole life, and that too without any success. Even my mentor, Dr. Jahr has not used it ever for tooth ailments.


Merc. Sol. is a flawless remedy and reigns supreme from naso-pharynx to the buccal cavity and eustachian tube. I do not leave Merc.Sol., in the treatment of teeth and gums, even when other remedies become definitely indicated. Merc.Sol. seems to me the organ remedy for oro-pharynx and laryngo-tracheal regions.


My flawless and sure prescription for the severest pain caused by decayed or sound molar, affecting the whole side of the face, eye and temple, is Merc.Sol. in watery solution, alternating with Plantago Major.  This joint prescription is unfailing in my practice for long. I’ve tried to use them singly, but to no avail.  Dr. M. A. Usmani]

Toothache: ` Kreosotum

“In my own experience Kreos. (3 and 30) meets a very large proportion of toothache cases, where the teeth are decayed, especially, if the gums are scorbutic. Its nearest rivals are Staphisagria with blackened teeth, and Mercurius  with suppurating gumboils.” (Clarke)


Caries of Teeth: (also loss of voice),         Coca


Wisdom Teeth, Cutting of:          Cheiranthus

Nose stopped up at night from irritation of cutting wisdom tooth. Also deafness and otorrhoea.          (Boericke)


Hemorrhage after Tooth Extraction: Bov.


Bleeding persistent after Extraction of Tooth: Trill.

“Clean out the cavity, so as to remove the clot and apply it on a piece of cotton soaked in the tincture of Trillium, it will surely check.”      (CMM p.159)


Ailments after Tooth Extraction:         Tereb.

Toothache after Tea Drinking: Thuj.


Dental Fistula: Fl.Ac.




Spasms of Esophagus in Hysterical Female:        Strych.


Stenosis of Esophagus: Hiccough causing chest pain. Cardialgia.     Stront.Carb.


Sensation of Lump or Constriction in Esophagus: Sinap.Alb.

Obstruction in esophagus with sensation of pressure and burning. Much eructation.


Stricture of Esophagus, with burning pain behind sternum:          Condurango

Food seems to lodge in the esophagus.


Food goes roughing along the Esophagus:   Alumina
