অপর নাম – ক্লোরাইড অফ অ্যামোনিয়া (Chloride of Ammonia)

হোমিওপ্যাথি ঔষধার্থে বিচুর্ণ বা অ্যালকোহল দ্বারা প্রস্তুত দ্রব্য ব্যবহৃত হয়।

১। পিঠের স্কন্ধাস্থিদ্বয়ের মধ্যে শীতলতা অনুভব – এই ঔষধের একটি বিশেষ লক্ষণ। এই লক্ষণটি এই ঔষধ প্রয়োগের একটি মূল্যবান সূচক বলে প্রমাণিত হয়েছে।

বক্ষঃস্থলের রোগে, যথা -কাশি বা কাশি ব্যতীত বক্ষবেদনায় সাধারণত এই লক্ষণটি দেখতে পাওয়া যায়। স্কন্ধাস্থিদ্বয়ের মধ্যবর্তী স্থানে জ্বালা যেমন লাইকোপোডিয়াম ও ফসফরাস নির্ভরযোগ্য বিশেষ লক্ষণ; এই শীতলতা অনুভবও এমন মিউরের তেমনি বিশেষ লক্ষণ।

২। কোষ্ঠবদ্ধতাতেও এই ঔষধ ব্যবহৃত হয়। কঠিন, শুষ্ক মল ভেঙ্গে ভেঙ্গে পড়ে ও অতি চেষ্টায় উহার নিঃসারণ এর প্রধান লক্ষণ। কখনও কখনও কষ্টিকামের মলের ন্যায় ইহা শ্লেষ্মা বা আম জড়ানো হয়।  কষ্টিকামের মল শ্লেষ্মা মাখান, চকচকে যেন চর্ব্বি মাখান আছে।

৩। পেশী ও বন্ধনীতেও (ligaments) এই দুটি ঔষধের সাদৃশ্য আছে। এমোন মিউরে বেদনা থাকে এবং ঐ সঙ্গে পেশী সঙ্কুচিত বা ছোট হয়ে গেছে এরূপ অনুভূতি হয়। কষ্টিকাম আরও একধাপ এগিয়ে, সত্য সত্যই পেশীগুলি সঙ্কুচিত হয় এবং বাতজ অঙ্গবিকৃতি বা আথ্রাইটিস ডিফরমানস নামক অবস্থার সৃষ্টি হয় (সাইমেক্স, নেট্রাম মিউর)।

৪। এমোন মিউর ও বোভিষ্টা নামক দুটি ঔষধে ঋতুস্রাব অথবা জরায়ুর স্রাব রাত্রে প্রবাহিত হয়। তবে অন্যান্য লক্ষণ দৃষ্টে এদের নির্বাচন করতে হবে।

পার্থক্য –

ক্রিয়োজোটে স্রাব হয়, কেবল শুয়ে থাকাকালে, উঠলে বা চলে বেড়ালে উহা বন্ধ হয়ে যায়।

লিলিয়াম টিগে স্রাব হয় কেবল চলে বেড়ালে এবং স্রাব বন্ধ হয় চলা বন্ধ করলে;

ম্যাগনেসিয়া কাৰ্ব্বে কেবল রাত্রে অথবা শুয়ে থাকলে স্রাব হয় এবং চলে বেড়ালে বন্ধ হয়।

৫। এমোন মিউর সায়োটিকা রোগে কখন কখন উপকারী। এক্ষেত্রে টেনডন সমূহের ছোট হয়ে যাওয়ার ন্যায় অনুভূতি থাকে এবং রোগী বসে থাকলে যন্ত্রণা বাড়ে, চলে বেড়ালেও যন্ত্রণা বাড়ে কিন্তু শুয়ে থাকলে সম্পূর্ণ উপশম হয়।

এতে গোড়ালিতেও যেন ক্ষত উৎপন্ন হয়েছে, এরূপ বেদনা আছে। গোড়ালির বেদনায় ফাইটোলাক্কা, সাইক্লামেন, ম্যাঙ্গানাম, লিডাম ও কষ্টিকাম ব্যবহৃত হয়ে থাকে।

আমি একটি বোগীর অত্যন্ত বেদনা ভেলেরিয়ানা দ্বারা আরোগ্য করেছিলাম।

EDWARD RUSHMORE, M.D.

MELANCHOLY : SULPHUR.

A young lady, scarcely grown, has for a long time suffered from melancholy and depression, a feeling as if she is going to die. She is dizzy and faint on rising in the morning, and has occasional obscuration of sight, when objects appear both dim and crooked, and it seems as if her eyes are not in their proper place. Besides, she has a had taste in the mouth, weakness at the stomach and eructations if she takes coffee, and constipation for which she has taken Aloe. The menses occur four or five days too soon, but are otherwise natural. She is sleepy by day, more so in the afternoon, but sleeps well at night. She is easily chilled and takes cold easily. To get the feet the least damp makes the forehead feel heavy, the eyes feel strange, and gives them a hollow look.

She received one dose of Sulphur cm. (F.C.). Six months later her father, visiting me for himself, told me she recovered both from the melancholy and the bodily ailments soon after taking the medicine, and that she had remained well to that time. I have every reason to think she had had no return of the symptoms.

INTERMITTENT: SEPIA.

A middle aged single, lady, living near swampy ground, has chilliness in the afternoon with coldness of the nose. She weakens at 3 A.M., with heat and throbbing in the abdomen, followed with perspiration of the feet and of the palms. Several other members of the family have had intermittents in former years. Sepia cm. (F), one dose dry, and subsequently repeated in water, cured her.

PROLAPSE OF RECTUM, BACKACHE, INTERMITTENT URINE: RUTA,. CONIUM.

An old gentleman had prolapse of the rectum preceding very difficult stool. Ruta 900 (F), one dose, entirely relieved him of this difficulty. On another occasion the same gentleman complained of a dribbling, intermittent flow while urinating. He received one dose of Conium 900 (F), and said it fully relieved him. Of Ruta I would like to add that in the early stage of a malignant disease of kidney and bladder, it relieved for a considerable time the pain in the back, and was given because the pain in the back was > by lying on the back. This condition has been verified as a trustworthy indication for the use of Ruta in many other cases.

CHRONIC COUGH: AMMONIUM MUR.

A gentleman wrote me from California that he had suffered there for several years with bronchitis and cough with a feeling of coldness between the scapulae. I sent him Amm. Mur. 20 m. (F), ten powders, to be taken at intervals. In about three months, he wrote to say he was so much better he thought he did not need more medicine.

I always examine Amm. Mur. in cases of cough, with coldness between scapulae or shoulders. It has nearly always been found suitable and helpful.

UTERINE BEARING DOWN: BELLADONNA.

An aged lady complained of a sense of fulness and much bearing down in the lower abdomen, < in lying down and relieved by sitting up. Belladonna 50 m. (F.C.) relieved her in a short time.

HEART COLDNESS AND TREMBLING: NATRUM MURIATICUM.

An aged lady had a sense of coldness at the precordia, and of trembling of the heart. Natrum Mur. 900 (F), one dose, removed both these symptoms.

COUGH: KALI CARBONICUM.

A boy of eleven years has grown very fast. He gets an ulcerated sore throat from slight exposure, and has often had a cough. A brother died before this patient was born, from scrofulous swellings, following scarletina, under the treatment of an eclectic homoeopath. He now has a severe cough day and night with vomiting of food. The cough is worse about 3 to 4’o clock in the morning. He sweats easily. The pulse is 114; temperature 101 to 102. There is sharp bronchial respiration in the upper part of the right lung, heard posteriorly. Loss of appetite and of flesh as well. He has been under the care of the same eclectic homoeopath.

He received one dose of Kali carbonicum cm.(F) graft. At the end of three weeks the pulse and temperature were normal, and the cough almost wholly removed.

A Case of Migraine

A middle aged lady suffering from Migraine for the last three years -recently the pain disturbs her all through 24 hours. After detailed case taking for 45 minutes, I could not get any worthwhile symptom, expect Desire for sweets. Then I called inside her husband and made them understand the importance of mental symptoms in the selection of Homoeopathic drugs. Her husband narrated a few incidents which clearly identifies state of mind: Though we are much rich, she is so much concerned about each penny we spend. At times we both go for shopping and when back at home, she would lament about the money we spent together. Recently our car was in the garage and had to pay Rs. 2,000 for which she complains every day The entire mental state depends on a MISERLY attitude and I took the rubric AVARICE in Synthesis, page 21. There is no drug having this symptom so intensely as Ars. Alb. The drug was administered in LM potency 0/1 in water, t.d.s, for 15 days. She got immediate relief and presently feels no LM 1 is continued. She may require Thuja or Sulphur etc. for a final cure: but let us learn HOW MISERLY OUR ARSENIC IS Also let us read from Dr. Rajan Sankaran from The Spirit of Homoeopathy Page 50.

Mental state and not Mental Symptoms

Aphorism 211 from Organon reads; This holds good to such an extent, that the state of disposition of the patient chiefly determines the selection of homoeopathic remedy, being a decidedly characteristic symptom which can least of all remain concealed from the accurately observing physician. Look at the words. It says the state of disposition; the state and not symptoms. Hahnemann did not write this holds true to such an extent that mental symptoms determine the choice of remedy. Try to understand. He did not ask us to record the symptoms. He asked us to understand the STATE of the patients mind. Dont write, contradiction, intolerant of or Dictatorial. These are all mere symptoms. Understand the state of mind from which these symptoms come. If you look at the symptoms, you will be lead to many remedies. But if you look at the state, there will be only one.

Cough Cured By Cedron:

Mrs. Y, came for complaint of cough for the last one week. She told me of a strange symptom which she suffers for years. If she wakes up any night at a particular time due to any reason, then all the subsequent nights she will wake up precisely at the exact time when she woke up for the first time, without change even in minutes. Ignoring the entrance complaint of cough, based on this PQRS, CLOCK LIKE PERIODICITY Cedron-30 only one dose was given. She got immediate relief of her cough. Leaving aside the particulars, the CNS symptoms or the Generals should be given even in acute cases.

A Case of Allergic Rhinitis:

Ms. Y. aged 26 phoned me up for severe sneezing, severe itching of eyes. Psorinum 1 M followed by Ambrosia 1 M in repeated doses gave some relief. Again the itching in the eyes was so severe that the patient felt like pulling away her eyes and she got thin white membranes in her eyes. Since the eyes are getting infected and the treatment is through phone, I told her to consult an E.N.T. surgeon, after trying Rhus tox 200 every 3 hourly. On the third day when I called her again, she said she is fine-no sneezing, no itching of eyes, no membranes forming in the eyes. How Rhus tox was selected? The patient told me that she gets aggravated in cloudy weather, and in a clear fine weather when the sun appears bright after a cloudy weather. Rhus tox is the only remedy given the highest grade in the Rubric (Synthesis, Page 1715)- weather cloudy.

Lumbago Cured By Ammon Mur

Mrs. R 40 years. Acute lumbago < standing . Three days before the pain started, she had a PQRS. Sensation of coldness between the scapulae. This is an important symptom of Amm. Mu. But in the rubric pain, aching < standing, this drug is missing. But the sensation is a CNS symptom, it can be always relied upon leaving aside the particulars. 200th, a single dose cured the patient instantly. Amm.mur is a very important drug. Dr. Bhattacharya says it fights against all the three Tridoshas Vath, Pith, Kaph. Dreams of water is an important symptom of this drug. Ammo. mur is the only drug having highest grade. Based on only this symptom, I have cured several diseases.

Cough alternating with any other disease or cough associated with liver troubles, cough without coryza but with a catarrh, are all important symptoms. In ailments from grief, it is a very effective drug. Hair falls out due to dandruff, with itching (use 3x). Sciatica, < sitting, > lying-this is a keynote symptom which you can always rely upon. Menses flow more at night. Hard crumbling stools.

Ailments After Fright Cured By Pulsatilla

Mr. X aged 21 got frightened by seeing thieves in their house at about midnight. The shrieking sounds of the other members of the family made the thieves flee. But this boy was terribly shocked and from the very day he never spoke to anybody almost all the time. He was weeping like a child. He had tremendous anxiety when alone. The little words he spoke shadowed fear of misfortune and worries. Though in all the major exams he was in the merit list he abandoned going college and was much worried about his sister. He was worried something may happen to her and to all members of the family.

The following rubrics are taken-

1 Ailments from fright.

2 Anxiety when alone

3 Cares, worries full of

4 Fear of misfortune

5 Forsaken feeling

6 Anxiety of future

Caust (7), Graph (7), Nat mur (8), Nux vom (8) Puls (12).

A few doses of Puls 30 and 200 cured him in a fortnight. He has passed M.B.A. and is working as a manager in a bank. Puls works in men with female attributes.

Hospitalised Patient Cured with Gratiola:

Mr A, firm believer in homoeopathy phoned me up by about 9.00 pm on third March saying that he had about 24 loose motions with vomiting right from 4.00 a.m. and he had intense weakness and too much sweating and Ghabarahat (palpitations). Since he was understood to have severe dehydration I advised him to get admitted in a hospital. He was immediately admitted to a private nursing home and there doctors tried their best to stop his diarrhea with allopathy. Vomiting stopped but diarrhea increased to every half an hour. After every bottle of saline he had to go for stool which was greenish in colour the stools were of gushing nature like water from in a hydrant. The stool was completely watery from March 3 to March 5. He was given 26 botles of intravenous fluids alongwith intravenous allopathy without the least benefit for his diarrhea. I collected his symptoms on phone and Gratiola 30 few doses two hourly cured him. The totality considered was stool greenish gushing stool, aggravation eating and drinking (every saline bottle gave the urge for stool), stool watery

The books used for repertorisation were Sound Treatment of Diarrhoea by Dr. P.S. Kamathan and Therapeutics of Diarrhoea by Dr. James B, Bell. Podo, Phos and Gratiola scored highest marks. The patient had tremendous fear of thunder and lightening so I thought of giving Phos but the present diarrhoea cannot be a constitutional diarrhoea and hence Phos omitted. Podo also was rejected since the stools were not offensive and aggravation morning symptom was missing. Hence Gratiola was prescribed.

Adrenaline 6 cured Tachycardia:

Mala aged 28 came with following complaints. Numbness of upper and lower limbs. Palms increasingly sweaty. Dyspnoea. Tachycardia. The person felt as if both his hands and legs have become exceedingly numb. He felt difficulty in breathing, his palms are cold and clammy. When I examined his heart it was found beating at a fast rate. His Blood pressure was 130/90 mm. We often get such types of cases in clinics where we can prescribe on pathological symptoms only. Definitely we have got lots of rare remedies in Boericke for use in such cases but our only weak point is we dont get any feedback regarding such remedies from any doctors or research wings. I have found Trichomonas vaginalis 30 an excellent medicine in obstinate leucorrhoea. Herpes 30 post herpes problems. Flagyl 30 good in any disease of anus, eruptions piles etc. Triple antigen 30 always gives good result in children of bronchitis when other remedies dont give desired results. Plumbum met works in obstructive jaundice with Fel Tauri (Kamal Kansal). Coming back to present case let us read page 8 of the Golden Beads compiled by Dr. A.K.C. Kunji, . . . Constriction of the peripheral arterioles with resulting rise in blood pressure. Its chief therapeutic use depends on its vaso construction action. All symptoms of Adrenaline. Adrenaline 6 a few doses two hourly cured the patient of all his symptoms except a headache which was cured by a few doses of Glonine 30.

[ Reads before I.H.A., Bureau of Obstetrics and Pediatrics, June 15, 1938].

ELIZABETH WRIGHT HUBBARD, M.D.

One of the many boons of homoeopathy to the modern parent is its power to free them from fear of the contagious diseases. It does this by a medley of means. In the first place, it shows the usefulness of these supposed scourges of our young, to wit, that they are a means of ridding the system of some of its inherited taints, of the accumulated miasms of past generations. Children come out stronger and often with changes for the better in their personalities, after an exanthem wisely handled by a true homoeopath. To be sure, although the acute course is either brief or mild, out-croppings follow from the deeper layers which call our attention to the need for a chronic remedy. so much the better: the patient might not have noticed the chronic signposts, nor in these depression days, done anything about it, save for the acute trouble. These symptoms from the deeps should not be the conventional sequelae: none such should develop, with proper handling; but rather minor items which the wise doctor interprets into radical help for the childs constitution. Never discharge your acute cases in children till they have had a chronic to follow through. The adults who are sickly in a deep chronic way I find to be those who have not had the exanthems in their youth. And many who seem healthy in maturity die sudden deaths, and they also have usually NOT had the children;s diseases.

Mothers have a few instincts left, even in these times, and one is a distinct aversion to having their children shot full of this and that preventive serum or vaccine. Blessed and sane instinct When they realize that the same good end can be accomplished by mild internal protection by high potency, without introducing foreign blood rhythms and with no fear of bad reaction, they are delighted.

If children have been exposed to, say, whooping cough, I ask the parent whether this would be a convenient time to have them get it, in case they need to, by inner necessity. If so, no protection, if they are in good state to stand it. If not, then a prophylactic remedy; if they get it the case will be mild; if not, no harm is done. For I believe that the potency, instead of suppressing Natures legitimate urge to measles or whatever, gives Nature an out, releases forces, rouses the body to combat the incipient evil in itself.

A third comfort to parents is the inexpensiveness of the treatment, and the fact that the mild form can be well coped with in the home, and the time out from school reduced to the legal minimum.

May I give you a few cases in illustration?.

CASE I: Master B., an interesting but self-willed boy of 13, product of a disharmonious wealthy background-good soil for an eruption came down with scarlet fever. Throat abscess had been lanced. Sudden profuse, repeated haemorrhages occurred, eight in an evening. Pronounced not surgical, probably from the stomach. Liver and spleen enlarged and tender. Called in consultation, I found the patient plethoric, blond, capricious, cantankerous, disobedient; blood bright, gushing; constant nausea, clean tongue. Ipecac 2c., 3 doses, one hour apart if needed. No further bleeding after 20 minutes from first dose. Three days after, case study showed Arum triph. and Amm. mur. as the two most similar remedies. Arum was given, 10 M. 1 dose, with relief of corrosive saliva, etc. This might have carried the case safely from the start. The follow up was a dose of Nat. mur. 1M. Swift recovery after the Ipecac Was the loss of blood therapeutic? Was the Ipecac more truly related to the child than even I realized in the emergency prescription?.

CASE II: MAster A., aged 9, small pallid boy of tubercular stock on both sides, came down with whooping-cough. Red face with cough, better in the air, worse 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. Dros. 1M., 1 dose. Only slightly better for three days then cough incessant, weak, short, running from one spell into another; postnasal dropping; ulceration of the alae nasi. This latter peculiarity, together with the incredible continuance of the cough, led to Cor. rub. 2c., 1 dose. Brilliant improvement for exactly one week. Return of cough, though nose clear. Cor. rub. 1M., 1 dose. Startling amelioration for ten days. Return of cough as before caused me to give Sulph. 2c., 1 dose. Aggravation for several days of general condition rather than cough. Then cough returned in full vigor: Cor. rub. 10M., 1 dose and a speedy end to the trouble. Follow up: Sepia 1M., 1 dose. Boy gaining weight for the first time in a year and a half, rosy and peppy. would Cor. rub 10M. have settled the whole thing in the beginning? Was the Sulph. an error? Or did it lay some foundation for the Cor. to hold by?.

CASE III: Master M., 7, mumps, bilateral, hard swelling, constant need to swallow a lump, sensitive to weather change, oily sweat without profit, intense thirst for cold. This textbook picture responded at once to Merc. viv. 10M., 1 dose. No symptoms appeared calling for a chronic: as this child comes for one every two months or so anyway, none was given. This is a very psoric child. Were there no symptoms developed because the case was so perfectly covered by the Merc.? Or because the chronic remedies clear away enough anyway?.

CASE IV: Master R., 10, slight measles rash on neck, Koplik spots, only symptom subjectively: severe photophobia and aching eyes, with slight yellow pus in canthi. Euphr. 1M., 1 dose. Rash blossomed, eyes cleared, in three days felt well. Two weeks later, earache, flushed face, soft pulse, calm: Ferr. phos. 1M. Hives followed; Sulph. 1M. brought him round fast.

NEW YORK, N.Y.

DISCUSSION.

DR. MC LAREN About this first case, DR. Hubbard says it is a good thing for children, probably, to have these childrens disease, and I agree with her-so long as they are mild. Any case I have ever attended where Arm triphyllum was indicated has always been very severely ill. In other words, I don;t think you get Arum triphyllum indicated in a case which is not very ill. I think, had the Arum triphyllum been given first she would not have needed the Ipecac. To may way of thinking it is a much deeper acting remedy than Ipecac.

With regard to the second case, the dose of Sulphur, probably the Sulphur might not have been given just at that time, but I think the result and the good health of the child were probably due to the Sulphur.

DR. MOORE: I have just one comment. It was given by Dr. Hubbard but it wasnt emphasized. That is, where the Drosera is used, one dose.

DR. Grimmer: I am inclined to think with Dr. Hubbard that these acute exanthemata are beneficial in the main, that they do take a great deal of the psoric miasm away, especially if under the remedies good health evolves. No disease evolves ordinarily if we watch it. I think that is why a lot of these shots that are given nowadays are doing harm rather than good. They are suppressing, and these suppressions come out later on in changes, in pathological conditions in kidneys and vital organs. I think there can be no doubt but what the acute diseases are, as Hahnemann says, explosions.

dR. ROBERTS: Dr. Hubbard has brought out a point there that is worth while considering, and that is the filling of the vacuum in human life. That is really what it is., Why is it we have contagious nature has left a vacuum there that has got to be filed, and it is either filled by a constitutional remedy or by the epidemic disease. Either the constitutional remedy-the similar remedy-or the similar disease, cures the patient and produces the immunity. That is the function of the contagious disease.

DR. MC FALL: Would you call whooping cough and diphtheria exanthemata?.

DR. HUBBARD: No, I should not.

DR. GRIMMER: Dr. McLaren has suggested that I tell you something about the measles epidemic in Chicago this past spring. It was the greatest in the history of the Health Department.

Another peculiar thing about it was that quite a few of the cases developed so-called sleeping sickness. Of course I didnt have many of those cases. I had a few, but most of my work is chronic. I wondered if the use of coal tar derivatives hasnt something to do with the sleeping sickness.

EUGENE UNDERHILL, JR., M.D.

Neuritis is defined as inflammation of a nerve. Pathological symptoms include pain, tenderness, more or less impairment of function, sensory disturbances and in severe cases areas of anesthesia and even paralysis.

Neuralgia, on the other hand, simply means nerve pain. A typical neuralgic pain is defined as severe, darting or throbbing in character, intermittent, with sensitiveness of the skin. Generally there is relief from warmth and pressure.

Back of both neuritis and neuralgia there is always some form of nerve irritation. Some cases are traumatic in origin, others toxic, still others are caused by nutritional deficiencies. Alcoholism and emotional stress are predisposing factors of considerable importance.

When the cause is traumatic such local treatment must be instituted as the case may require. Fixation and rest of the affected part may be indicated. There is always more or less damage to nerve tissue in any injury but the homoeopathic remedy by matching the symptoms of motor and sensory disturbance will afford the maximum of relief and restore function to the fullest extent possible.

Cases of nerve injury associated with a bone or periosteal bruise or where there are strained or over stretched tendons will respond to Ruta. Direct injury to nerves in which the tactile sense is highly developed will generally require Hypericum. This remedy is nearly always indicated following injury to the coccyx, also for bad effects following chilling of the buttocks and lower part of the back as from sitting for a long time on a cold, damp bench or on the cold ground. This form of chilling in which there is a damp, penetrating cold extending up the spine is one of the important predisposing causes of poliomyelitis. It is regrettable that the “March of Dimes” fails to provide enough pennies to inform the public of this fact and thereby prevent many cases of infantile paralysis. What are they waiting for, a new wonder drug or a polio-antitoxin?.

Punctured wounds of the extremities are best treated by cleansing the wound with Calendula solution and by giving Ledum internally in the thirtieth or two hundredth centesimal potency. This is a more effective prophylaxis against tetanus than the antitoxin and no risk of an unfavorable serum reaction is incurred. Hypericum may be required in the extremely few cases in which lymphangitis develops with red lines or streaks extending up the arm or leg.

Neuralgic pains in the stump of an amputated limb will generally be relieved by Allium cepa when the pains are fine, thread-like and shooting in character. Ammonium mur. is often indicated after amputation of the foot when there are tearing, stitching pains, worse in bed at night and better from massage. Arnica is the remedy following amputation through the fleshy parts of the arm or leg when there is the sore, bruised feeling and the history of considerable trauma to the muscular structure. Hypericum may be the remedy after amputation of the distal phalanx of any of the fingers following an accident in which the tip of the finger has been chopped or cut off. Sharp, shooting pains will extend up the arm, the pain being almost intolerable and associated, perhaps, with a degree of shock apparently out of proportion to the severity of the injury. Phosphorus is indicated after amputation in nervous, sensitive subjects when there was excessive bleeding during or following the operation and a weak, all-gone feeling with thirst for ice cold drinks. Staphisagria has sometimes been used on a routine basis after amputation but the indications are what might be called “clean cut” cases with little or no contusion and when the sensation as of a knife cutting persists long after the surgery.

A contusion causes local shock to the nerves in the involved area. A temporary paralysis results in an extravasation of blood from the capillaries into the surroundings tissues, then we have ecchymosis, bruise marks or a black nail if the injury is to the end of the finger.

These effects can nearly always be prevented by giving immediate and adequate mechanical support to the contused tissue until the local efferent nerves recover from shock. A severe hammer blow will not cause a black nail if very forceful pressure is instantly applied and maintained until the pain subsides, then ever so gradually relax the pressure.

Arnica is the remedy for bruises of the soft tissues and their nerves of supply. Painful soreness is characteristic with a bruised sensation which often extends beyond the area of trauma. Worse from light touch and better from hard pressure, worse from motion and better lying down. Arnica is often indicated following contusions to the abdomen.

Bellis perennis is especially suited to injuries to the blood vessels and following trauma to the coccyx, as in Hypericum. Often called for in gastralgia from ice cold drinks taken when overheated, also for neuralgia after exposure to cold and wet when overheated. As in Arnica, there is the sensation of bruised soreness. There is aggravation from cold and cold applications, amelioration from continued motion, as in Rhus tox.

Ledum is indicated following contusion of the eye with extensive ecchymosis and when there is marked relief from ice compresses.

Ruta for periosteal and bone bruises and for eye-strain from over-use of the eyes. Other remedies for eye-strain include Apis in which there is aggravation from heat and relief from cold applications; Natrum mur. when there are zigzags in front of the eyes and marked aggravation from sun-light and other bright lights; Senega when a certain object has been held in the field of vision for a long time and the eyeballs feel distended.

In the case of sprains as from over-lifting, over-exertion or trauma the most frequently indicated remedy is probably Rhus tox. with its aching, restlessness, aggravation when quiet and relief from continued motion. Often worse on beginning to move. Better from heat and worse from cold. Neuritis involving the left shoulder and arm after straining the heart from over-lifting or over-exertion. Involvement of the sciatic nerve, especially on the left side. Aggravation in wet weather, from getting wet and from dampness in general.

Calcarea carb., the chronic of Rhus tox. in the traumatic field. Bad effects from over-exertion whether mental or physical. Strained and sprained feeling following hill or mountain climbing. Aggravation from ascending is characteristic. Worse from cold and dampness. Plethoric type with easy sweating tendency.

Bryonia following injury to the chest and ribs with aggravation on the least motion and relief from pressure. Worse taking a deep breath, raising arms or coughing. Suited to cases of both pleurisy and intercostal neuralgia. Amelioration in either case by tightly strapping the chest.

Ruta for strained or over-stretched tendons, also for eye- strain as noted above. Worse from cold and from rest. Better from warmth and motion. Affinity for fibrous tissues, wrists, ankles and lumbar spine.

Ammonium mur. is frequently required for the chronic effects of sprains. Tightness as if the tendons were too short. Tense, sprained sensation in the groin with difficulty in walking erect. Better in open air and from continued motion.

Carbo animalis has the symptom “easily sprained from lifting even small weights”, also “great debility and easy spraining of the joints”. Elderly people who are feeble, subject to colds and when slight causes appear to produce unduly severe effects.

Sudden chilling when overheated or sudden suppression of sweat from a cold wind or in an air conditioned room when the outside temperature is in the nineties will often cause neuralgia or even a neuritis. In such cases Dulcamara may be the remedy when there is a sudden, severe drop in temperature from hot and dry to cold and wet in patients with a strong catarrhal predisposition. Causticum following exposure to dry, cold winds. Bells palsy, affecting especially the right side of the face. Paralysis of single muscles. Weakness of bladder with inability to control the urine.

Psorinum has an affinity for the nerve of supply to the deltoid muscle and has cleared many cases in psoric constitutions when the chronicity and recurrence are conspicuous features. Silicea following exposure to a draft, especially when perspiring, also for cases of neuritis following a suppressed foot sweat. Silicea patients are better from warmth and from wrapping up the affected part.

Anemia predisposes to many cases of neuritis. Toxic causes include many of the acute infections also malaria, gout, syphilis, lead poisoning and organic disease involving the cerebro-spinal axis. Dental caries and badly infected tonsils are responsible for some cases.

Remove the cause of the neuritis in so far as possible. Stop causing disease and then prescribe the indicated remedy. To neglect diet in patients with gout is to invite recurrence. Chronic lead poisoning or aluminum poisoning must be stopped at the source or the homoeopathic remedy will fail, or more correctly the physician will fail to cure the case.

Trifacial neuralgia (tic douloureux) cannot respond to proper treatment if there has been over-exposure to either the infra-red heat lamp or the ultra-violet, so called sun lump. Alcoholic injections and the x-ray have spoiled more cases than they have ever alleviated.

How foolish to prescribe “the apparently indicated remedy” in a case of beriberi without first removing the cause which is usually an obvious nutritional deficiency. Correct the diet and then prescribe the remedy. Either a food toxemia or a nutritional deficiency is the underlying cause of most cases of either neuralgia or neuritis. Much acute illness is due to a toxic over- load in the body. Much chronic illness is due to mild but multiple and therefore complex nutritional deficiencies, starvation in the midst of an apparent abundance of food.

As soon as an individual arrives at the age of personal responsibility, as soon as he is on his own, in other words, he then proceeds to cause disease through one or more avenues of unhygienic living:

1. Emotional stresses and conflicts.

2. Excesses and depletions.

3. Nutritional deficiencies.

4. Food toxemia.

The kind or type of disease from which he will suffer depends upon the direction of susceptibility in his own constitution. Disease attacks the weakest structures in the constitutional chain. The strong parts of the body are disease resistant.

DISCUSSION.

DR. WILLIAM GUTMAN: I will never forget a case of acute neuritis because it was the most extreme expression of pain I have ever seen in my life and because it gives us such a good example of the importance of exact case taking.

A patient came to me with an acute neuralgia of both brachial plexi. He was rolling on the floor and crying out from pain. It was a terrific and terrifying picture. I was not able at first to establish a diagnosis, to get even words out of this man, but I found out, to make it short, that it was acute neuralgia of both brachial plexi due etiologically to suppression of sweat. He was standing in a draft in winter, sweating in his armpits just shortly before entrance to a house. I gave this man one dose of Belladonna 200. and the pain subsided in no time.

A couple of weeks later he was brought by car to my office in exactly the same condition, not the slightest difference, a terrific recurrence, maybe more terrific than the first one. Naturally, I gave a dose of Belladonna 200. No result. My office was full of people waiting, so this was one of the very few cases where I finally gave a hypodermic because the patient just begged me to do something in this terrific attack of pain. I did it with a very bad conscience, feeling I could make a chronic out of such a case, or a suicidal case out of such a condition. After fifteen to twenty minutes the pain subsided and he was brought home; but as I expected, in the late evening I was called again urgently to see the man. Naturally, I had given the man only a hypodermic, no curative remedy, so, seeing the patient again, I established that he was exposed to a situation which had caused a fit of anger which he had suppressed.

I gave him one dose of Chamomile. Within three minutes the pain was gone and never recurred. What the morphine could not do before fifteen or twenty minutes, being only a palliative, Chamomile in high potency did in three minutes and cured him.

It shows it is an example for teaching students how exact case-taking is in homoeopathy, even if you have a perfectly clear picture, and shows the extreme importance which Dr. Underhill stressed of the emotional influence in neuralgia.

DR. J. W. WAFFENSMITH: In reference to neuritis, very often we get typical Rhus toxicodendron symptoms and especially in sciatica, and there is a temporary favorable reaction to the Rhus toxicodendron but it doesnt hold.

I want to call your attention to Calcarea arsenicosa. It has been very beneficial to me in studying these cases. I had one case particularly through the winter, an aged gentleman whom I had treated constitutionally for several years, and he had this terrible case of sciatica, with characteristic Rhus symptoms, and the Calcarea arsenicosa fitted in nicely.

DR. A. H. GRIMMER: Dr. Underhill mentioned the effects of coffee, and it is true that excessive coffee predisposes not only to nerve conditions but extreme sensitivity. Here is a little remedy Clark mentioned, to add to what we know about Nux and Chamomilla and others, Guarana, a South American plant. Clark mentioned it as being a wonderful remedy for those who are prostrated or aggravated nervously or otherwise, from excessive coffee.

Case

A gentleman wrote me from California that he had suffered there for several years with bronchitis and cough with a feeling of coldness between the scapulae. I sent him Amm. Mur. 20 m. (F.), then powders, to be taken at intervals. In about three months, he wrote to say he was so much better he thought he did not need more medicine.

I always examine Amm. Mur. in cases of cough, with coldness between scapulae or shoulders. It has nearly always been found suitable and helpful.

In a neurotic, middle aged woman, sensation as if the brain shook; all noises aggravate symptoms; griping in stomach; pains mist after supper. North pole of magnet applied locally by patient to painful spot whenever pain was severe. Greatly relieved; applied for one minute each time.

A middle aged lady, plethoric, nervo-bilious temperament, who had been fearfully maltreated and drugged for about twenty years, but under true Homoeopathy for about twelve months reported that for the last three or four years se had been subject to Ptosis and attacks of weight on the head with nausea, bringing up water only; drowsy also. She received Gambogia 200, four doses, one each nigh in water. Reported: after the first dose, in one minute felt it act on left side of brain only; also, as if it lifted off the finest filmy substance from the nerves or let in sunshine on semi-darkness; made her feel very happy and thankful. After the four doses great improvement in spine, very little pain and irritation. Uterine discharge increased, also discharge of yellow matter (probably leucorrhoea) with the usual pains.

The same patient that was benefited by locally applying the North pole of the magnet, now writes, nearly three months later, complaining of a feeling of shaking at the top of the head, pain in the eyes especially the let on reading or working; pains at the back of neck and head when tired; unable to walk far from fatigue and weakness in the legs and aching of the thighs.

Crotalus 200, a dose each night. In six days writes, “I am feeling better since taking the medicine”.

Cuprum Sulph. -In a highly neurotic youth of fourteen, attacks on going to bed at night of nausea, accompanied by terror.

Stimulants palliate. Cuprum sulph. 6 every half hour during nausea greatly relieved.

Colchicum. -In a gentleman aged seventy-four, drying of a complicated pathological condition: Broncho-pneumonia, anasarca,chronic vesical disease; note of his disease reads as follows: Unconscious from early morning; seen by me 9:30 p.m.

Respiration intermittent, face red, hot, fresh looking. Colchicum 200 every ten minutes, for 6 doses, changed the character of the breathing to quiet, regular movements with occasional puffing expiration, for about four hours; then sudden change, countenance pale, and in about fifteen minutes he was gone. He had one dose of China 200 when the sudden change occurred as the puffing expirations were marked. During the four hours he made several efforts to raise expectoration, and twice it came into his mouth.

N.B. Was this not a proof that homoeopathic potencies will act, in articulo mortis?

In a robust lady (single) of sixty-six, after three-fourth hour cross-questioning, nothing definite was made out, except that she passed much high colored urine only at night. For this, Oleum animale 12 was prescribed. Reported herself four days later: yawning (spasm?) almost gone; sobbing worse; a rigid sensation like wood in the right hand which had troubled her for some weeks, was improved; ankles less swelled; state of urine improved, and greatly improved in herself. The urine had been examined meanwhile and was found to be acid sp. gr. 1.020, and on pouring fuming Nitric acid into some when cold, a distinct orange tint occupied the lower half of the fluid, and some warmth developed. On boiling with Nitric acid no precipitate.

jacaranda. -Food tastes insipid. Nausea during eating. Capanapi 3 in pilules, soon cured.

Rheumatism in bones of forearms; bruised like, worse from touch, pressure, movement; has lasted some weeks. Cyclam. 200. In nine days, soreness nearly gone, feels better altogether.

Damp weather aggravates all complaints. Heat of fire aggravates. Chilliness at stomach after breakfast. Zinc 30, removed ina week.

After relief to pain passing downwards over glutei muscles, from Kali carb. 30 in a middle aged woman, subject to gout-there occurred smarting aching of dorsa of feet, especially night with wakefulness at nights.

Ranunculus sceleratus 3, three times a day in a week, removed both troubles.

In an army sergeant aged forty-nine, invalided for aneurism of abdominal aorta and who had been strikingly relieved under homoeopathic treatment, each medicines administered for the symptoms present at the time, there occurred while recovering from a catarrhal attack, and no medicine having been given for a week-coldness of the hands and feet not perceptible to himself. Ipecac 200 night and morning, shortly removed this-note in Mat. Med. Pura, under fever-“external coldness and internal heat”.

In a case typical typhoid in a youth of 17, with the delusion that one of his arms was detached and belonged to some one else, two doses of Baptisia 200 were given, 2 hours apart, during the night. After the second dose he felt as if a load were taken off him and at 11:30 a.m. had epistaxis with entire relief to headache. Pyrexia less in all ways and he felt more himself than he has been yet. No more medicine required for two days when Bryonia was indicated. Made a good recovery.

A middle-aged gentleman subject at times for the last 2 or 3 years neuralgia affecting the right parietal region, after extra mental or physical work and relived by stimulants: This side of head is warmer than the other. Ammon. mur. 200, one dose, whenever the pain occurs. Reported: took one powder and it stopped it at once and there now appeared a touch of gout in big toe of tight foot which Sabina 200 promptly relieved. Later on a second attack of neuralgia was permanently removed by a second administration of Ammon. mur.

A servant aged 23, subject at the menstrual period to a gnawing pain at the epigastrium, passing downwards; also leucorrhoea after periods, was greatly benefited in 5 days by Borax 200 night and morning, and Borax 31 taken for a week before the next period removed these symptoms entirely and an accompanying palpitation.

A young woman aged about 22, neurotic, nervo-sanguine temperament, is subject during menses, which are now on, to a headache in the right parietal region; severe, worse after dinner, with a flushed perspiring face. Morphiae acetas 12, every 2 hours soon relieved.

The wife of an artisan, about 30 years old, reports pain at the very bottom of the back (coccyx?) as if it were opening. Stramonium 200, glbs. to be taken when in pain. Boenninghausen, under “sensations”, gives: “sensation of joint being detached or wrenched open”, and compare Mat Med. Pura, vol. iv, p. 194. Reported: “The medicine acted at once on pain at bottom of back, taken at intervals as required”.

The same patient reported above as benefited by Gambogia, reports: all pains rise to a height and then suddenly disappear.

Pains in thighs during menses. Sulph. Acid 30, one dose, caused return of sensation of many old symptoms. Character of pains changed in a measure.

Calcarea Phos. -In a middle aged lymphatic man, inclined to be stout and always very depressed when ill, attacks weakness with burning all over. Calc. phos. 30, soon relieved.

Niccolum. -In a middle aged lady, loose hacking cough, day and evening, and at 9 a.m. : has to put arms on thighs when coughing. Niccolum 200, soon cured.

In an old woman aged seventy-eight, plethoric; two hard nodules in right breast, one above, the other below the nipple, which was retracted, and accompanied by a cold feeling in the breasts objective and subjective. Cimicifuga 200, eight doses, taken in four days, removed the cold feeling and gave general relief for a month.

Phosphoric Acid. -In an elderly woman, chronic dyspepsia, whining temperament; brown bread won’t digest, but passes through her unaltered; causes nausea. Phosphoric acid 30, one dose. In ten days reported, very greatly improved in all ways.

Oxalic Acid. -In a middle gentleman: sensation during the night of hot water flowing along the rectum, distinct; no stool or flatus followed; after one dose of several globules of Acid Oxalicum 6, taken thirty-six hours before.

Ammonium Carb. -In a woman at climaxis, pain on taking hold of anything in the hands and fingers. Deadness at night of hands and fingers. Ammon. carb. 30 ter die. In a week very much improved.

Spigelia. -The same person, a few months later, can’t turn her neck; worse in herself in sultry weather; cardiac fluttering, can’t lie on left side; great restlessness of limbs at night. Spigelia 200. In a week, all symptoms greatly relieved.

A railway guard, aged about thirty-five, spare habit, fair complexion, after having had sciatica cured by Rhus, complained of neuralgia on left side of face from a decayed tooth relieved by pressure. The pain is tearing: cause, wet feet. Saliva in mouth. On dose of Phosphorus 30 caused an almost immediate aggravation while in my consulting room lasting about fifteen minutes; he then became easier; previous paroxysms had lasted about two hours. He was cured.

A woman aged fifty, who was subject to headache from thinking, had had a fright and other shocks since, one being the death of a brother on the railway; drank much tea and had had much quinine; now complains of weakness of chest with dyspnoea and loose cough will expectoration difficult to raise; worse from excitement; flatulence on chest; wakeful in the early hours; sudden faints from emotions with consciousness. One dose of Nux vomica 200 relieved cough, headache, sleep and flatulence in five days.

An infant of fourteen days had a swelling on posterior edge of base of left scapula; displacement? The mother says it was a cross birth and had to be manipulated a good deal to restore animation when delivered. Symphytum 3, one dose. in four days swelling less and less appearance of displacement. No more medicine was needed.

Mrs. G3/4, very stout; used to be very thin; now complains of wheezing at times, worse in damp weather; desire to breathe deeply. Easy perspiration with exercise. Cough with blue, thick, easily raised expectoration, and pain in arms and some other symptoms-received Calcarea 200, one dose. in six days, pain in back, breast, arms, all less, also expectoration, and feels better in herself. No further medicine was required.

Pulsatilla. -A young woman. Catarrh with chilliness, thirstlessness, foul yellow tongue, pains in limbs, vomits everything. Pulsatilla 200, every three hours. Next day a friend reports: “all right this morning”.

Mrs. H3/4 Constipation with flatulence in the left hypochondrium and vertigo. Evening aggravations of all symptoms.

Headaches at times. Has taken much medicine, allopathic and other. Lycopodium 200, one dose, cured, after causing an aggravation during the first week, which she called a cold.

A girl of seventeen. Amenorrhoea; five weeks (last time profuse). Has lost flesh (naturally stout). Worse in herself, mornings. Easily fatigued. Rushes to head. Before menses, weary, breast painful, legs swell, constipation, leucorrhoea. Calcarea 500, one dose. In nine days reported: feels a “lot better”. Sleep greatly improved. No further medicine required.

Mr. J3/4 a singer in a church choir, states that colds affect notes of voice, upper or lower; likes something light round throat, which is now relaxed, posteriorly (fauces). Coffee loosens bowels if taken after dinner, and he has exercise. Stools twice a day, usually in the evening. Constipation with haemorrhoids. Micturition slow in commencing. Larynx sensitive to air. Hepar 200, one dose. In a week reported: throat cured in two days, slight relapse from extra work (singing) last Sunday. Micturition almost too free and easy. Stool still twice a day, costive; no haemorrhoids. Sac. lac.

Nine days later, states: return of slowness on micturition last two or three days; singing power increased; two stools daily, afternoon and evening. Sac. lac.

Ten days later-Slowness of micturition less; stools still twice a day; some return of throat symptoms since damp feet yesterday. Hepar 1 m. (F.C. ) one dose. In two days, throat dry on waking. Throat gave no further trouble except an occasional dryness, promptly relieved by Belladonna (low).

Miss K3/4 about climacteric period complains, among other things, of discharge occasionally of clear water from both nostrils, sometimes one or other nostrils is stopped at night or towards evening. Feels the cold very much. Pain in left hip joint when walking. Ammonium carb. 30, three times a day. In a week, great improvement in symptoms and in herself, and a smell of ammonia frequently before the nose, a symptom she used to have year ago.

Amm. carb. 200, given in the same way, diminished this at first, but it then returned and annoyed her at times for another two months, while being treated with Iodine for other symptoms.

Mrs. L3/4. Perspiration in sleep, hot the upper half of her body, cold the lower half. Great susceptibility of head to draft. Frequent urging to urinate, worse when standing; small quantities passed for weeks. Silicea 200, one dose.

The next day improved in all respects; the next, all symptoms improving, perspiration nearly gone, urine freer than for months.

Six days later, reports yesterday and the day before frequent diarrhoea, with griping; return of perspiration in sleep last night and night before, yet to-day she feels rather better and inclined to get up. The next day fresh symptoms occurred, calling for a different medicine.

Mrs. L3/4. Seen in consultation a week after confinement, primipara; natural, but retained placenta, which the attending physician had torn away. Doing well until day before yesterday, when probably from chill, there was some pyrexia; now 10 p.m. P. 112; sort of stupid state with complaint that her right arm will fall off. She received three doses of Baptisia 200, two hours apart; and next morning report was-all symptoms improved. Delusion gone, p. 100. Felt marked effect from first dose with increase of arm symptoms. Slept some hours. Had beautiful visions. Difficulty still in speaking. Mind acutely sensitive. Told me she thought bad smells from her body might cause fever (she was quite free from odors). In the afternoon told the other doctor she was quite calm, but should be gone within twenty-four hours. We agreed to give two doses of Aconite 30, one at 5:30, the next at 7:30. Calling at 10 p.m., we were told she had had some sleep after the first dose, and was quieter altogether. She made an excellent recovery.

Mr. R3/4, a young man, a publican, while taking Aconite 1x for tremor of approaching delirium tremens, with frequent thirst for small quantities, and restlessness, and improving greatly in all respects, went out twice contrary to orders, and was found at home at 9 p.m. with great increase of all symptoms; frantic, requiring two men to hold him, bathed in warm perspiration; seeing all sorts of figures, wanting to trample them down, etc. conjunctivitis, right eye. Stramonium 4, every half hour. Next morning all symptoms greatly relieved perspiration gone, he is quiet in bed. A few more doses of Stram. at longer intervals completed a good cure.

Nausea of Pregnancy.-Mrs. C. B., age thirty-six, at the third month of her fourth pregnancy, suffers from continuous and persistent nausea without vomiting. Ip., Sep., etc., have not relieved. Her mental symptoms, which had been concealed from me heretofore, were as follows: great fear; fears she will not survive her confinement; anxious and timorous; does not dare go on to the street alone; in constant fear when in crowded places, as church, market, etc., but does not know what she fears. Aconite 45m, F., one dose, relieved promptly not only the nervous apprehension but the nausea as well.

My friend J. H. Wilson, M. D., of Beliefontaine, Ohio, guided by the above mental symptoms, some years ago cured a case of “morning sickness” brilliantly with Acon, in a low potency.

Mrs. F. W. A., age twenty-nine, at the fourth month of her second pregnancy, complained of severe nausea and occasional vomiting, which annoyed her only late in the afternoon and evening; appetite good when not nauseated; no thirst; tendency to be chilly all the time (in August). Puls. mm (Tafel); one dose. Entire and prompt relief.

Sciatica.-Mr. H. M. R., age forty-eight, carpenter by trade, has been working during the cold weather in an exposed place. For three days has suffered from a severe drawing pain in the left leg, commencing at the nates and extending down the posterior aspect of the thigh to the popliteal space and on to the calf of the leg; better while lying quietly, with the leg extended, and while walking slowly, hut is unbearable while sitting. Rhus tox. and Pulsatilla afforded no relief (of course not), but for the two days he was wasting with these drugs he grew steadily worse till the only relief he had was by the recumbent posture. Amm. mur. cm (H. S.) relieved in two hours and cured in a day and a half. He received but one dose.

Pruritus Ani.-Mr. A. B., Jr., age thirty, a periodical dipsomaniac, tall, slender, of light complexion, and nervous temperament, has been for the last four years a sufferer from this disease. It troubles him all the time, but is much worse at night, The itching in and about the anus and forward along the perineum is so severe at night as to deprive him of sleep. It is relieved while scratching vigorously, and by application of cold water. When relieved by the compress he drops off to sleep, it quickly wakens him, and it is not unusual with him to be obliged to rise to apply these compresses every twenty or thirty minutes all night long. He has lost flesh and strength, has little appetite, and is very nervous and irritable. After several drugs had been exhibited without benefit, Amm. c. cc (Dunham), in repeated doses for forty-eight hours, cured him in ten days. For more than seven months to the present time there has been no return of the disease.

Dysmenorrhoea.-Miss L. S., age twenty-five, a school teacher, of large frame, coarse fibre, dark complexion, with tendency to adipose, has suffered for three years with dysmenorrhoea. Menses are regular as to time, rather profuse, natural in color, somewhat inclined to be offensive in odor. Leucorrhoea in inter-menstrual period. For the first twelve or eighteen hours of menstruation she has severe cramping pains low in the abdomen accompanied with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea. The bowels move three or four times, usually loose and profuse (she is habitually constipated), but the vomiting continues throughout the first day. Amm. c. cm (H. S.), one dose. Two weeks after taking the Amm. c. menstruation appeared at the regular time. One stool at the commencement, freer than usual but not diarrhoea; slight nausea but no vomiting. She taught all this first day of menstruation, which she had not been able to do before for many months. Six weeks later menstruation normal and painless; no nausea, no vomiting; no further trouble to this tune, now more than a year. No report regarding the leucorrhoea was made. She received but one dose of the remedy.

Heart Disease-Palliation. Mrs. S., age about sixty-five, has had a mitral insufficiency for several years. For the last three months has been confind to her room, and her condition is now pitiable in the extream. She is unable to lie down, her legs and left arm are enormously swollen, and the abdomen filled with dropsical effusion. The skin of the legs below the knee is dark red tense, and glistening, while upon the left calf a large ulcer marks the death of tissue from the interference with circulation. A thin, excoriating fluid oozes continually from the skin of the legs and causes a sensation of burning in the skin. Under medication she has been relieved of her suffering very largely, so that now she complains of no pain except the burning already mentioned. But she is nervous, restless, sensitive to noises of all kinds, and sleepless. A feeling of excessive “nervousness” causes the restlessness and the sleeplessness, she says, but cannot explain more definitely except that it makes her unbearably miserable. Beseeching mood. “Oh dear doctor, pray do give me something to relieve me You must do something; help me, doctor, for I cannot bear this nervousness.” Coffea cr. cm (H. S-), one dose, was followed by the most gratifying and ever-surprising relief. The first night after receiving it she slept about six hours continuously, and so quietly that her nurse repeatedly went to her to see if she was living. Several times since she has needed the same remedy, the only one she takes when she evinces a tendency to the nervous state which called for it, and it has never failed to give prompt relief. Her nurse (trained in an allopathic hospital) will not believe that it is not some preparation of Morphine, and wonders that it does not produce the unpleasant features of that drug, which she has so often observed when it has been administered to her former patients.

Remedy
Sep / Ruta / Con / Kali-c / Sulph / Bell / Nat-m / Am-m

(Clinical Bureau, I. H. A.)

Intermittent Fever-Sepia.-A middle-aged, single lady, living near swampy ground, has chilliness in the afternoon, with coldness of the nose. She wakens at three A. M., with heat and throbbing in the abdomen, followed with perspiration of the feet and of the palms. Several other members of the family have had intermittent in former years. Sepia cm (F.), one dose dry, and subsequently repeated in water, cured her.

Prolapse of Rectum. Backache-Ruta, Conium.-An old gentleman had prolapse of the rectum preceding very difficult stool. Ruta 900 (F.), one dose, entirely relieved him of this difficulty. On another occasion, the same gentleman complained of a dribbling, intermittent flow while urinating. He received one dose of Conium 900 (F.), and said it fully relieved him.

Of Ruta, I would like to add that, in the early stage of a malignant disease of kidney and bladder, it relieved, for a considerable time the pain in the back, and was given because the pain in the back was relieved by lying down on the back. This condition has been verified as a trustworthy indication for the use of Ruta in many other cases.

Cough-Kali-carbonicum.-A boy of eleven years has grown very fast; he gets an ulcerated sore throat from slight exposure, and has often had a cough. A brother died before this patient was born from scrofulous swellings following scarlatina, under the treatment of an eclectic homoeopath. He now has a severe cough day and night, with vomiting of food. The cough is worse about three to four o’clock in the morning. He sweats easily. The pulse is one hundred and fourteen. Temperature one hundred and one to one hundred and two. There is sharp, bronchial respiration in the upper part of the right lung posteriorly. Loss of appetite and of flesh as well. He has been under the care of the same eclectic homoeopath.

He received one dose of Kali-carbonicum cm (F.), graft. At the end of three weeks, the pulse and temperature were normal, and the cough almost wholly removed.

Melancholy-Sulphur.-A young lady, scarcely grown, has, for a long time, suffered from melancholy and depression, a feeling as if she is going to die. She is dizzy and faint on rising in the morning, and has occasional obscuration of sight, when objects appear both dim and crooked, and it seems as if her eyes are not in their proper place. Besides, she has a bad taste in the mouth, weakness at the stomach, and eructations if she takes coffee, and constipation (if she takes coffee), for which she has taken Aloes. The menses occur four or five days too soon, but are otherwise natural. She is sleepy by day, more so in the afternoon, but sleeps well at night. She is easily chilled, and takes cold easily. To get the feet the least damp makes the forehead feel heavy, the eyes feel strange, and gives them a hollow look.

She received one dose of Sulphur cm (F. C.). Six months later her father, visiting me for himself, told me she recovered both from the melancholy and the bodily ailments soon after taking the medicine, and that she had remained well to that time. I have every reason to think that she has had no return of the symptoms.

Uterine Bearing Down-Belladonna.-An aged lady complained of a sense of fullness and much bearing down in the lower abdomen, worse in lying down, and relieved by sitting up. Belladonna 50m (F. C.) relieved her in a short time.

Heart Coldness and Trembling-Natrum-muriaticum.-An aged lady had a sense of coldness at the precordia, and trembling of the heart. Natrum-muriaticum 900 (F.), one dose, removed both these symptoms.

Chronic Cough-Ammonium-muriaticum.-A gentleman wrote me from California that he had suffered there, for several years, with bronchitis and cough, with a feeling of coldness between the scapulae. I sent him Amm-mur. 20m (F.), ten powders, to be taken at intervals. In about three months he wrote to say that he was so much better he thought he did not need more medicine.

I always examine Amm-mur. in cases of cough, with coldness between scapulae or shoulders. It has nearly always been found suitable and helpful.
