Loss of Reactive Power: COMPARISON
Laurocerasus: Owing to low vitality, especially when occurring in chest affections. Long lasting faints (Camphor has sudden faints). Seems to have no reactive powers; face pale, blue; surface cold. [This remedy should be studied very carefully and exhaustively.
It is my sheet-anchor in many assorted cases where there is lack of reaction. Where the patient seems to demand a new remedy on every visit, and you cannot make head or tail in the treatment of the case. Lauro. has either settled the case, and sufficed itself as the sole remedy, or paved the way for another definite remedy. Other remedies for ever changing scenario of symptoms are: Carcin., Med., Tub. Also read The Manual of Alexander L. Blackwood.--MAU]
Capsicum: In persons of lax fiber, but stout.
Psorinum: In chilly psoric persons, despair of recovery, chest affections, > lying down; (Lurocerasus, < lying down).
Sulphur: In hot, perspiring, psoric subjects; chest affections; liver wasted after congestion.
Valeriana, Ambra, Moschus: Lack of reaction in nervous persons.
Carbo-v.: Cold knees, breath, tongue. Collapse in abdominal diseases. Indifference.
Opium: When the person looks stupid and drowsy.
Castoreum: Nervous females, do not react after sickness.
Cuprum: A tendency of all the symptoms to relapse.
When Well-chosen Remedies Fail: Valeriana
In hysteric and nervous affections.
Lack of Reaction after Typhoid: (Especially in Females) Castoreum.
“After the fever has spent it force, the patient remains irritable, with exhausting sweats. Catoreum will at once help.” Farrington, p.27
When no other Remedy is Positively Indicated (In Typhoid, Pneumonia, Scarlatina, Diphtheria, Peritonitis and other similar conditions): Rhus-t.
ENERVATION, FATIGUE, WEAKNESS
Weakness after Typhoid: Selenium:
As a sequelae of prolonged fever, the patient when begins to walk about feels such a debility of the spine that he fears that he will be paralyzed. (Sulphur). Sel. is also indicated in total inactivity of the rectum during convalescence; feces are impacted requiring removal by artificial means.
Sulphur: During convalescence weak feeling in spine, stoop shouldered, chest feels empty, it tires to talk; weakness or gone feeling in epigastrium, forenoon. (CMM459f)
Weakness of Nursing Women: Carbo-an.
Other remedies: China., Ph.ac., and Oleander.
Collapse in Cholera: Hydrocy.Acid
In cholera this remedy is to be placed by the side of Camphor, being indicated in marked collapse with sudden cessation of discharges, as vomiting and purging. (CMM 338)
Severe Cases of Prostration Approaching Paralysis: Hydrocy.Acid
Impending paralysis of brain and lungs. There is gurgling from the throat to stomach when swallowing. (ibid) [In prolonged fainting Hydrcy.Acid can be compared with Lauro.]
Neurasthenia, Brain Fag: Pic.Acid
Dull headache with aggravation from the slightest attempt at using the brain. This may be in the forehead, or still worse in the occiput, and may extend down the spine. The least study causes burning along the spine, very great weakness of legs and back and soreness of muscles and joints. Feeling heavy and tired. All these symptoms without there being any anxiety. Brain fag from constant mental work. Aggravation: wet weather; amelioration: cold, open air, cold water, binding head. Laboratory findings: urine abnormally high in Sp. Gravity, containing albumen and sugar. Priapism in pre-paralysis stage. Compare: Ph.ac., Phos., Nux.v., Ox.ac., Sulph., Arg.n., Alum., Sil., Zinc.
Weakness and Debility as if in Joints: Arg.m.
“This weakness can be understood if one remembers one quality of Arg.Met., and that is its action upon the joints It has particular affinity for the Cartilages of the Joints. Thus we find general debility with bruised feeling in the small of back from the weakness of the spine, and general weariness forcing the patient to lie down to obtain rest. The knees are particularly weak. There will be, not a true articular rheumatism, but rather an arthralgia, with pains of the same character as those of the head. We find this in nervous hysteric women and in men after loss of vital fluids, particularly semen. (CMM 611)
Exhaustion (to the fag-end): Mephitis
“If taken in low potency, when one is exhausted, it tones up the nervous system, and relieves exhaustion.” --Farrington.
Fatigue after Long Journey, Especially in Hot Weather: Coffea
Fatigue in Weakly Nervous Patients, who confess of sexual excesses: Coca
Nervous Weakness after Influenza:(‘Never better after ‘Flu’): Scut.Lat.
Post-Influenzal Debility: Chin., Scutell., Influenzinum.
Also Abrot., Kali-p.
Debility from Summer Heat: Nat.c.
Ill-effects of summer weather is commomn to all soda salts. Nat.c. is indicated when there is great deal of debility caused by the heat of summer, particularly when the patient is subjected to chronic headaches, which are worse every time he exposes himself to the heat of sun. Also from the chronic effects of sun-stroke. (CMM 691)
Debility of the Aged: (Comp. Bar.c., Boericke) Curare
Debility from Lack of Digestive Powers: Alstonia
Also assimilative powers are weakened. Nausea in the morning before breakfast. An empty feeling in the stomach or whole abdomen. Food seems to remain in stomach a long time undigested. Diarrhea of undigested food, immediately after eating. Has to leave the table before finishing a meal. (Clarke)
Exhaustion, Nervous and Mental: (Comes on during rest): Kali.i.
Mental and Neurasthenic Conditions in Persons who have, Years ago, had Small-Pox: Variol.
Paresis in the Aged, Relaxed Musculature, Prostration: Strych.Ars.
Muscular Prostration: Sarcolactic acid
With tiredness, < evening, sore feeling all over.
Muscular Paralysis without impairing Sensations and Consciousness: Curare. (Boericke)
Progressive Muscular Atrophy: Plumbum
Also indicated in multiple cerebro-spinal sclerosis; and in paralysis with contraction.
Cramps of Muscles (in Calves and Feet): Cholus Terrapina
“I know of no remedy better-adapted to simple cramps in muscles.” (CMM 286)
Paralysis, Originating in the Diseases of the Spinal Cord: Cocculus
A certain and frequent remedy. Especially indicated in the beginning of the trouble, whether it results from functional or from severe organic disease of the spinal cord; whether the disease be of the spinal irritation from loss of seminal fluid,(Compare Zincum, in paralysis originating in spinal irritation); softening of the spinal cord or locomotor ataxia or sclerosis. [Hemiplegia on the left side has been directly produced by the drug.] It is especially indicated in these cases, when the lumbar region of the spine is affected; there is weakness in the small of back, as if paralyzed. The small of back gives out on walking. There is weakness of the lower extremities; the knees give out when walking; the soles of the feet feel asleep; the thighs ache as if pounded; first one hand, then the other goes to sleep. Sometimes the whole arm falls asleep, and the hand feels as if swollen. These symptoms lie at the foundation of the symptomatology of the whole drug, they all seem to depend upon spinal weakness. We found these symptoms common enough in women with menstrual difficulties, when back gives out in the morning, after venereal excesses, and also from loss of sleep. CONCOMITANT Symptoms: 1) Feeling of Hollowness: in someone cavity of the body, either in head, chest or abdomen. It is more than a weakness, it is an absolute feeling as though the parts were hollow. 2) Talking tires these patients very much.
Paralytic Phenomena after Subsiding of Septic Conditions Anywhere, May be a Wound or Bad-Throat: Cocc.
Paralysis from Softening of the Cord, Spinal Sclerosis: Pic.Acid
Functional Paralysis from Loss of Vital Fluids: Stannum
As Onanism; or from intense emotions.
Tetanic Spasms with Undisturbed Consciousness: Brucea
Paralyzed lower extremities, Agg. least touch, cries from fear of being touched ( Arnica); painful jerking of legs, cramps like pain in knees. Rigidity and lameness.
Paralysis of Old People: Bar.c.
Particularly paralysis following apoplexy. The brain shrinks. Memory is lost. Patient becomes childish. Trembling of limbs, with marked paralysis of the tongue. Same symptoms in children with drooling of saliva. Bar.c. is also a remedy for the apoplexy of the drunkards. Causticum is similar, but has more contractions. (cf. CMM 650)
Paresis after Flue and Diphtheria: Bar.m
PPARALYTIC SYMPTOMS OF CAUSTICUM
1) Paralysis of Single Parts or Single Nerves: This kind of paralysis is the most striking characteristic of the drug. Examples: Facial Paralysis; Ptosis; Paralysis of the Tongue; Paralysis of the Lips; Glosso-Pharyngeal Paralysis; of Larynx; Bladder. These paralyses may be caused by a deep-seated nerve disease. Or, very characteristically by exposure to cold, especially the intense winter cold, particularly when the subject is of rheumatic diathesis. Differntial Diagnosis (DD): Acon., Rhus-t., Dulc., Nux.v., Coch.
2) Stammering: When caused by imperfect control of the tongue. In paralysis of the tongue should be followed by: Bar.c., Dulc., Mur.ac., Stram.
3) Paralysis from Apoplexy;
4) Aphonia or Failure of Voice: (cf. supra, Chapt. Throat & Larynx). For full account read CMM, Causticum pp. 730ff.
Paralysis: Exposure to Cold, Dry Winds: Aconite
Feeling of coldness, numbness and tingling in the affected parts. Other remedies having tingling are: Cann-I., Staph. In paralysis from cold: Rhus-t., Sulph., Caust. are indicated later on.
Tingling will be the guiding symptom for Aconite, even in Neuralgia. Exposure to cold, dry winds would be an added indication. (CMM 320)
Exposure to Cold Draught: causing Stiff-neck, Lumbago, and Sciatica (when the sheathe of the nerve is affected), Rheumatic Ophthalmiai: Aconite
Chlorosis of Young Girls at Puberty: Alumina
Menses are too pale and scanty, and there is an abnormal craving for certain indigestible articles, chalk, charcoal, burnt clay, dry rice or earth. If leucorrhea is present, it is transparent and quite ropy and tenacious; or else is composed of yellowish mucus, profuse and running down the legs. This exhausts them very much, because it is rich in albumin. Mentally low spirited, inclined to weep, < on waking. Hatred of life. (CMM)
“We do not use Ferrum, or at least we should not, as allopathic physicians do, because in this disease there is defective amount of Iron in the blood. That is not the Homeopathic principle for using the drug. Homeopathy aims to correct the defective supply of haematin, which lies at the back of iron deficiency…so ferrum is not the remedy in chlorosis. But the following symptoms can make it indicated:
Compare: Manganese, Cupr., Arg., Zinc. (cf. CMM 240)
Chlorosis after the Abuse of Iron: Cuprum.
Also Pulsatilla. The symptoms are worse in hot weather. (CMM)
Anemia Following Abortion, Labor, or Protracted Disease: Kali-c.
A very deep-acting remedy, must be studied in full. (CMM, Full chapter). Guiding symptoms: Chilly patient, slightest exposure causes chilliness. Great exhaustion of muscular system, even heart has been weakened. Pulse become weakened and irregular and intermittent. Pulse rapid but weak, is characteristic, “you will seldom find Kali-c. indicated if the pulse is full and round.” D.D. Calc.Hypoph., and Psorinum. (P.738)
Anemia and wasting Diseases: Vanad.
Acts as oxygen carrier; increases hemoglobin, destroys toxins by stimulating phagocytes. Degeneration of liver and arteries; anorexia, gastro-intestinal irritation; albumin, casts and blood in urine. Anemia, emaciation. Acts as a tonic to digestive function and early tuberculosis.
Pernicious Anemia: Glycerinum
“Pure Glycerin, teaspoonful dose t.i.d. with lemon juice.” Boericke
Progressive Pernicious Anemia: Pic.Acid
Anemia with Palpitation, Breathlessness: Strophanth.
FLUSHES OF HEAT
Flushes of Heat: Sulphur
Not only the climacteric flushes of heat for which Sulphur is so frequently indicated, but the flushes of heat which may occur in any disease and do occur during convalescence. The ‘flush’ is followed by more or less moisture , which gives relief. To be purely characteristic of Sulphur, this must be associated with other symptoms , such as sensation of heat on top of head. The feet, in these cases, are apt to be cold, and the patient complains of weak feeling in the epigastrium, especially the forenoon, from 10 to 12. You never fail with Sulphur when you have these symptoms conjointly. For the ‘Flushes of Heat at the Climacteric compare: Lach., Sul-ac., Amyl-nit., and Kali-bi. And for the Weak Faint Feeling at 11 a.m. Phos., Hydrast., Asaf., and Zinc. [NOTE: In using Sulphur for empty weak feeling at 11 a.m. successfully, you must also have these symptoms present, 1) Hunger at 11 a.m., 2) Heat on top of head, 3) Cold feet. If you have these three symptoms, Sulphur never fails you. If there is heat at top of head alone, you must think of Calc., or Phos. (CMM 465, 468)
Climacteric Flushes: Stront.c.
Cf. supra, Chapter Heart under Stront.carb. story.
Flushes of Heat Followed by Great Debility at Menopause: Dig.
Least motion causes palpitation. Faint feeling at epigastrium, not > by eating.
Flushing, Flushes, at the Climacteric or Otherwise: Amyl.n.
Cf. Glon., Lach.
FAINTS AND CONVULSIONS
Cardiac Fainting: Linarea Vulg.
“Patient faints dead away without apparent cause. Linarea has repeatedly produced this symptom.” (CMM 394)
Fainting with Dysmenorrhea: Lapis Alb.
Fainting Spells with Twitching of Limbs: and Gasping for Breath: Laur.
Epileptic Convulsions: Hyoscyamus
“One of the most reliable remedies we have for epileptic convulsions, that is, if there is no other remedy indicated. Symptoms: the patient twitches and jerks, < by eating; especially is this to be noted in children. The child will wake up from sleep hungry, the face apt to be deep red color. Frothing at the mouth and biting of the tongue. These symptoms are almost always followed by profound sleep. Compare Cicuta Vir. which has shocks from the head down, staring eyes, screaming, red face, limb distorted, respiration greatly impeded. Trembling before and after the spasm, and great weakness afterward. Also comp. Oenanthe Crocata. (CMM 428)
Epilepsy without Aura: Zinc.Val.
Epilepsy from Worms: Stannum.
The patient has pale face and dark rings around eyes, and colic which is relieved by firm pressure over the abdomen. Also epilepsy with sexual complications, and hysterical spasms. (CMM 625)
Petit Mal: [Minor epilepsy , momentary loss of consciousness is characterisitic.] Causticum
Indicated in epilepsy, especially in La petit Mal, when walking in the open the patient falls, but soon recovers. During unconscious stage the patient passes urine. < New moon.
(Cf. CMM 734)
Petit Mal: Cicuta.
Catalepsy: [A neurosis or spasmodic disease, marked by loss of will and statue like fixedness of body and limbs without vibration in circulation.]: Ars., Curare, Piper.m.
Epilepsy, Nervous Depression, Insomnia: Verbena
Mental exhaustion. “It brightens up the mental powers and helps the constipation.” (Boericke)
Convulsions (Epileptiform or Spasms) From Worms: Indigo.
The child is roused at night with the horrible itching at the anus. The patient is low spirited, or sad, or timid. “If he is vehement or excitable, give a vehement remedy as Nux. or Bufo.” Farrington.
Tremors of the Aged: Avena Sat.
Twitching of Muscles: Scut.Lat.
Tonic Spasms, Tetanus, and Asphyxia: Upas T.
Renal Convulsions: (An absolute standby): Stram.
Uremic Convulsions: Hydrocyanic Acid.
[Uremia: A clinical syndrome due to renal failure resulting from either disease of the kidneys themselves, or from disorder or disease elsewhere, 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 cause it may or may not be reversible. The fully developed syndrome is characterized by nausea, vomiting, headache, hiccough; weakness and dimness of vision convulsions and coma] Hydrocyanic Acid, like Tab. produces asphyxia. The former drug acts upon the medulla oblongata and hence upon the heart through the pneumogastric nerves. Consequently the symptoms it produces are those of heart and lungs. We find it producing convulsions, with drawing at the nape of the neck, from irritation at the base of the brain. Along with this, respiration is irregular or gasping and there is great distress about the heart, with repeated ‘weak spells’ and coldness and blueness of the surface of the body. “It is well to remember this fact in Uremic Convulsions, when medulla is affected, Hydro-cyanic acid is then our only hope.” (CMM 433, cf. also p.537)
Morphia Habit: To Sustain Heart after Stopping: Spartium Scop.
Or Spatein Sulphate. Dose: 1/10 to ¼ grain. Homeo Dose: 1st to 3rd trit.
“Strengthen the heart, lowering the systolic and diastolic pressures. Continue the good effects of Verat. and Digitalis, without any of the undesirable effects of either.” (Hinsdale)
Drinking Habit: (Alcohol, Tea, Tobacco): Strophanthus
Causes repugnance to alcohol, which proved to be permanent. Dose: 7 drop doses.
“After long use of stimulants; also for irritable heart of smokers.” (Boericke)
Drinking Habit: Sterculia
Lessens the craving for liquor, promotes appetite and digestion; gives power to endure prolonged physical exertion without taking food, without feeling fatigued. DOSE: 3-10 drops, even one dram doses, three times a day. (Boericke)
Bad Effects of Tobacco Smoking:
Neuralgia of the Face: Sepia
Primary Effects: (Deathly Nausea, Vomiting): Ipecac.
Bad Taste in the Mouth, Headache < Morning: Nux.v.
To Remove Craving for Tobacco: Dapn.Ind.
Plantago: Produces distaste for tobacco. (CMM)
Opium, Morphia Habit: Ipec.
5 drops of M.T. for every grain of morphia.
Complaints of Inebriates: Sul-ac.
Inebriates who are on their last leg. They have run down completely, and have long since passed the Nux.v. condition. You find them pale shriveled-looking and cold; their stomach so relaxed as not to be able to tolerate any food. They cannot even drink water, unless it contains whiskey. The liver is enlarged. They have a dry stomach cough, often followed by belching; the act of coughing hurting the liver. The diarrhea is watery and offensive, and is accompanied by excessively irritable mind. They have a quick , hasty manner of doing everything. [Other symptoms of Sul.acid may also be present as moisture at anus, burning piles and hemorrhoids so large that they fill the rectum.] Here we can compare Carbo.v., which has dyspepsia of drunkard like symptoms. Sul.acid is one of the most sour remedies, and the Carbo.v. the most offensive, and ‘putrid remedy.’ (CMM 531) [Farrington further goes to explain how sul.ac. can be used to create hatred of liquors]
Drinking Habit: Sul.acid
“Take two or three drops of pure acid in a glass half full of water. Give it to the inebriate, every two or three hours in tea spoonful doses, and it will overcome the physical craving. Give it until he gets well, even if it produces sore mouth. Should it produce diarrhea, Pulsatilla is the proper antidote.” (Ibid)
Muscular Debility Following Prolonged Use of Opium: Mur.Acid
TRAUMA: Injuries, Surgical Operations:
After Surgical Operations: Calc.Fluor
Reduces the tendency to adhesion, and keloid formation (Thiosin.)
After Surgical Operation: Supersedes the use of Morphia: Hamamelis
Hasten absorption of intra-cellular hemorrhage.
Post-Operative Shock: Verat.alb.
Cold sweat on forehead, pale face, rapid, feeble pulse. (Boericke)
Shock after Surgical operation: Stront.c.
Chronic sequelae, after hemorrhages from operations with much blood and prostration.
Injuries to Periosteum: Ruta.G.
Injuries to Periosteum, with Muscular Contraction: Angustra
Injuries to Sexual Organs: Staph.
An excellent remedy. (T.K. Moor)
Injuries with Bruises and Ecchymoses: Sul.Acid
Sul.Acid is a traumatic remedy in its own way. It may be used for bruises of soft tissues after Arnica; in bruises of glands after Conium; in injuries of bones after Ruta. Particularly may it be used when there are long-lasing black and blue spots with soreness and stiffness. [It is also a hemorrhagic remedy where blood is dark and thin, and can be from any or every orifice of the body.] (CMM 532)
After-effects of Trauma: Glonoin.
An excellent remedy for pains and other abnormal sensations, following sometimes after local injuries. Even long after a trauma the part pains or feels sore; or an old scar breaks out again, then glonoine seems to relieve. (CMM 437)
Bad Effects from a fall from a Height, or Over-lifting: Millifol.
Prevention of Collapse following the Opening of a Cold Abscess, (such as occurs in Spinal Caries): Carbo.v., China.
Post-operative Shock: Verat.alb.
Hemorrhages, Copious, Active or Passive: Tril.Pend.
Usually bright red blood. E.g. Epistaxis, after extraction of teeth, flooding with fainting, threatened abortion, from fibroids, menorrhagia from least movement.
Pyaemia: as a Preventive: Arnica
“With the object of preventing pyaemia, some surgeons use Arnica after operations, applying it locally and, at the same time, giving it internally. The property of Arnica to prevent pyaemia lies at the foundation of the routine practice among physicians, of giving this drug to women after delivery. It tends to relieve the soreness following parturition, and promotes proper contraction of the uterus and expulsion of coagula, and of any portion of the membranes that may have been retained.” (CMM 241)
Helps Healing of Ulcers and Wounds: Liatris Sp.
Offensive Ulcers: Nymph. Odo.
Vulnerary like Arnica: Verbena
Promotes the absorption of blood and allays pain in bruises.
Ailments after Shock of Operation, Fright, Injury, Chills: Acon.
Calc.Phos.: Wherever bones form a joint or suture, there Calc. phos. has an action. We will find it, e.g., causing pain along the sagittal suture. Again where the sacrum unites with iliac bones, forming the sacro-iliac symphysis, there Calc. produces pain. If during pregnancy a woman complains of pain in this locality, Calc. phos. ought to help her.
Now when there is an artificial suture as there is at the point of coaptation of broken bones, there also Calc.phos. has an action. Where fractured ends fail to unite, Calc.phos. provides the callus. Use low potency here. In this respect Calc.p compares favorably with Symphytum, which is also used for non-union of fracture, particularly when the trouble is of nervous origin. Conchiolin is useful par excellence for this purpose. Ruta holds a complementary relationship in periosteal and articular pain. (CMM 680f)
Muscular Contracture after a Fracture: Causticum
Drowning: Veart.alb., Camph.
Favors Expulsion of Splinters: Anagallis
Perforating Wounds: Hypericum
“Where the tenderness of a perforating wound is more than the appearance would suggest
Think of Hypericum rather than Ledum. (T. K. Moor)
A GROUP OF INFALAMMATORY REMEDIES
[Whether the disease is a boil, Tonsillitis or any other form of inflammation.]
Belladonna: Preferred in the beginning of inflammation, as in tonsillitis. The throat is bright red and swollen, and there is difficulty in swallowing fluids, and sharp pain through the tonsils.
Hepar Sulph.: One should change to Hep. when the sharp, sticking pains and chills indicate the beginning of suppuration. It may prevent suppuration if given in incipiency of the process.
Mercurius: It is suited to a more advanced state, when pus has formed already, and you wish it evacuated. As a rule Mercurius does not prevent the formation of pus, but rather favors it. If you give it too soon, you will spoil the case. In FELONS however, if it is given low and early, it will favor the rapid formation of pus.
Silicea: When pus continues to discharge and this would refuse to heal, Sil. follows Hep. In some of these cases the benefit under Sil. will cease. Then a dose or two of Sulphur will excite a reaction and Sil. can effect a cure.
Lachesis: It is indicated when the pus degenerate and becomes dark, thin, offensive character, with the sensitivity to touch of that drug. (CMM 592)
Fistulous Openings in Joints and Glands: Phosphorus
Fistulae in glands and about the joints are apt to form with Phos. The fistulous ulcers have high edges from exuberant granulation; the purulent discharge being rather thin and ichorous. Around the ulcer, Phosphorus has probably more than Silicea, an erysipelatous blush, often radiating as in Belladonna. There will frequently be burning and stinging pains, well-marked hectic fever with the night sweat, diarrhea and anxiety towards evening. These same symptoms apply to inflammation of mammary glands, when there are fistulous ulcers as in Silicea, but distinguished from that remedy by the erysepelatous blush. Burning and stinging pains also suggest Apis. But Apis. does not cause deep-seated suppuration, such as that in the parenchyma of an organ. (CMM 574)
Fistulous Tendency: Petroleum
Fistula Lachrymalis, fistula of gums, anus, etc. (CMM 499)
TUMORS, LIPOMAS, GUMMATA, NODULES
Gummata Tumors Involving Nervous Tissues: Kali-iod.
“The only hope”. (CMM 419)
Tumors in Sycotic Patients: Thuja
Dr. Burnett used Cupressus Lawsonia for tumors when Thuja failed. Thuja, Cupressus and Sabina follow each other in tumors.
Infiltration of Glands. Tendency of: Bromium.
Glands become hard and seldom suppurate. (Boericke)
Enlarged Glands, Hodgkin’s Disease: Scroful.Nod.
Specific affinity for the Breasts. Very efficacious in dissipating Breast Tumors. Scrofulous swellings: Tubercular Testes, Nodosities in breasts. (comp. Scirrhinum).
Extremely Rapid Development of Malignant Growth: Lob. Erinus
Colloidal cancer of the omentum; cork-screw like pain in the abdomen. Great dryness of the skin, nasal and buccal membranes; dry eczematous patches. Malignant disease of the face. Epithelioma. (Boericke)
Anti-Sycotic Remedy in Treatment of Tumors: Variolinum
Uterine hemorrhage due to fibroid and other tumors of uterus, with backache.
Left-Sided Complaints with Irregular Menses: Lith-c.
Intolerance of Sufferings, (Pains etc.): Cham.
Caused by Morphia, Opium, and other sedatives (as Bromides, etc.). “They speak of the slightest twinge as unbearable.” (W.I.Pierce, Plain Talk on Mat. Med. 371)
Periods of depression in Disease: Zinc.
Tired, and defective vitality.
Local Congestions without Heat: (Boericke) Carbo-an.
“A tissue remedy for sclerosed arteries.” DOSE: 2X every 3 hours. (Boericke)
General Anasarca in Heart and Kidney Diseases: Liatris
Dropsy and chronic diarrhea.
Effective Antidote to Modern Serum Therapy: Pulsatilla
“Above all other remedies, it has the power to unlock suppression of modern serum therapy.” (T.K.Moor)
T. K. Moor on NOSODES
Variolinum: “The pitted face of small pox, in every case, even when the disease was forty years ago, cleans up to a marvelous extent with a few doses of Variolinum, in highest potency. We are slow to appreciate what may be done by treating a long ago acute disease, such as small pox, scarlet fever, or diphtheria, which has left something that indicated remedies do not cure. Recently we have seen a great change for the better in a young womam with severe heart lesions, aortic and mitral, from scarlet fever, in childhood, by Scarletinum. Similarly
Influenzinum is more often indicated in chronic cases than any other remedy. Also keep in mind Tuberculinum when treating sorethroat, with frequent tonsillitis and enlarged tonsils. When well-selected remedy acts only a short time, and symptoms agree consider Sulph., Calc.s., Psor., Tub., Med., and other nosodes.” (T. K. Moor, May, 1970)
Bad Effects from Influenza: Med. (High)
Dr. Swan. Dr. Burnett cured many cases as sequealae of the severe attack of influenza, and which had baffled many colleagues. Cf. Spleen.

One of the best general remedies for passive hemorrhages, uterine, renal, gastric, pulmonary, and intestinal. Atonic conditions, poor circulation, relaxed muscles. (It is mango Tree).
Passive Hemorrhage: Lycopus.v.
Hemorrhoidal bleeding, hemoptysis, due to valvular diseases. Also Adrenalin 6X.
Dropsy, Anasarca: Liatris Spicata
