4.0 Agar : Agaricus Muscarius, Muscaria   Volume Jan-Mar 1995, Volume No4, Issue 1 Author Dr. Prakash Shinde Subject Cases Remedy Agar By Dr. Prakash Shinde A farmer, male, aged 28 years married came on 20/7/93 with the complaints of: Stiffness in back, right upper extremity and left lower extremity. Intermittent twitching at cervical region. Pain at spine aggravated lying on back, touch and relief by movement. Sometimes vertigo if he moves in bright sunlight. Vague stitching pains at liver and spleen. Occasional burning in stomach. Sleep disturbed with frequent waking. All above symptoms were aggravated in cold air and on eating. Burning, itching, redness over skin when exposed to cold air. Built slim, thin. Has been examined by a physician and psychiatrist in the past. The above symptoms started when he was about 15 years of age and progressed gradually to this disabled state. Habits Occasional alcohol since last 3 years to give relief to his sufferings. However he agrees that the condition has worsened since he has started consuming alcohol. Cigarettes- About 4 to 5 per day. While further questioning him about his symptoms he told me that he had a peculiar habit of looking for different types of sharp weapons wherever he went. He had revengeful plans in his mind. Family History and family background: – Father died (alcoholic) before his birth. He has a mother, uncle, aunt, all well but very much worried about his ill health. His visits to weaponry shops for enquiry of sharp weapons was much disturbing to them with the thought that he would one day commit suicide so a psychiatrist was approached but the efforts were in vain. This outstanding fascination towards sharp weapons is taken as a Key to unlock his health status & when I referred Kents repertory I was glad to see one rubric Plans revengeful page 69 Kent having solitary drug, Agaricus M. Even other symptoms were matching with drug picture of Agar mus. 20/07/93 Agaricus 200 BD x 7 days 27/07/93 No improvement Agaricus 1M, 1 dose. 03/08/93 No improvement Agar 50M, 1 dose. 10/08/93 No improvement Agar CM, 1 dose. 20/08/93 No improvement Agar 1M, 1BD x 5 days 27/08/93 Cervical twitching reduced. Pain between scapulae reduced to 10% Complaints reduced after 10 days. 07/07/93 Status quo, Agar 1M BD x 7 days. 14/09/93 Complaints 20% improvement. No medicine. 30/09/93 Status quo, Agar 1M BD x 10 days. 10/10/93 Patient feeling better. His attraction towards weapons had reduced, No medicine. 20/10/93 Improvement, No medicine 05/11/93 Status quo Agar 50 M OD x 5 days. 15/11/93 Feels better, Agar CM 1 dose. 15/12/93 80% relief, No medicine. Since then the patient has not returned till today at my consultation for any complaint. The patient had no family problems except the death of his father before his birth and that he was brought up in a poor farmer class. There was no history of rivalry regarding land and property as he was the only son. No H/o any quarrels in the past or any annoying circumstances; still his outstanding attraction towards weapons, that too sharp weapons and his revengeful plans in spite of his ill health gave a picture of super active mind withthoughts of violence with very bad physique was the key to his drug picture. Were his revengeful thoughts anything to do with his past life? Editors comments: – Again one strong mental symptom taken as the essence of this mans pathology has helped this patient considerably.     Book HEAL THYSELF (The Homoeopathic World) A Popular Journal of Medical, Dietetic, Social and Sanitary Science By J Ellis Barker. Volume 1933 Oct Vol LXVIII No 814 Author Pierre Schmidt. Subject Cases Remedy Bell / Anthr / Nat-s / Puls / Phos / Agar/ Cupr / Nux-v / Ars / Sulph / Med / Syph / Sil. By DR. PIERRE SCHMIDT. Geneva. [Dr. Schmidts article will be of particular interest to readers because he is one of the leading high potency men. He uses almost exclusively high and the very highest potencies in very infrequent doses, following the examples of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, whose favourite potency was the 30th.– J.E.B.]. I WOULD warn the readers of this article not to jump to the conclusion that the remedy which I have successfully employed for some disease or other can safely be used in the hope of success in every case of the same disease. Diseases should be treated not in accordance with their names, but in accordance with the totality of symptoms of the patient. In giving the briefest summary of days work, I wish merely to show the all- sufficiency of the homoeopathic law and the fact that interesting and valuable results may be obtained by acting in accordance with that law. I would mention that Hahnemann published only a very few cures of his own because he wished to prevent his followers from acting mechanically and prescribing for the names of diseases instead of for the totality of symptoms, irrespective of the official designation of the complaint treated. ACUTE COLIC ORIGINATING IN THE LIVER– Cured by three doses of Belladonna 200th potency in a few hours. WHITLOW OF THE FINGER. — Very painful, was treated with a dose of Anthracinum 200th potency, and then with Hepar sulphuris 1000th, and is rapidly getting well. ASTHMA.– A clergyman who had suffered for several years from this disease was rapidly improved with Natrum sulphuricum in doses which were gradually raised from the 1,000th potency to 500,000th potency. ANAEMIA OF PRE-TUBERCULOUS CHARACTER.– A young girl, who suffered from this complaint, combined with very painful menstruation, was greatly relieved with Pulsatilla in the 10,000th potency. APOPLEXY.– A man of 50 had had two apoplectic strokes followed by complete paralysis of the left side. His condition was greatly improved and he was enabled to walk almost normally and to speak, with a few doses of Phosphorus, one in the 1,000th potency, followed by a dose in the 10,000th potency and one in the 50,000th potency with an interval of from five to seven weeks between each dose. During eleven months there has been no relapse. There were two crises which occurred with an interval of three weeks.

  1. VITUS DANCE.– This disease in a backward girl of 15 years who had not yet menstruated and had a very thick neck, was greatly improved with the help of Agaricus followed by Cuprum and then by Calcarea silicata, all in high dilutions.

PERIODIC HEADACHES.– A lady of 45 with this trouble is doing well with Nux vomica 10,000th and higher. ECZEMA ALL OVER THE BODY AND ACUTE ARTHRITIS.– A lady in this condition, 44 years old, is doing well, having received a dose of Arsenic in the 1,000th potency, and another dose in the 50,000th potency. INFLAMMATION OF THE TESTICLES.– This trouble, combined with varicocele and neurasthenia, in the case of a young man of 20 was wonderfully improved in less than a month after two years sufferings from these complaints. He was given Arsenicum in the 1,000th potency. SPASMS OF THE OESOPHAGUS.– A youth of 12 suffered from spasms of the swallowing tube, which caused him to vomit his food. His condition was greatly improved by a dose of Sulphur in the 1,000th potency, followed by Lachesis in the 10,000th potency. MIND AFFECTION AT THE CHANGE OF LIFE.– A lady, 40 years old, suddenly had the sensation that she was living in a different world. Everything around her seemed strange to her, she knew no longer where she was and she suffered mental agonies in consequence. She was cured in a few months with Medorrhinum given consecutively in the 1,000th, the 10,000th and 50,000th potency. TUMOUR OF THE BREAST.– A lady of 38 was cured of a breast tumour with Silica, but other tumours appeared afterwards in the other breast. ASTHMA. A lady, 42 years old, had been suffering for eight years from asthma. She was cured in a month with a dose of Arsenic in the 1,000th potency, followed by Arsenic in the 10,000th potency, and the cure has remained for two years. ASTHMA.– A girl of 15 with asthma is at present being treated and her condition has been greatly improved with Syphilinum 200the potency. SYRINGOMYELIA.– A young man, suffering from this disease of the spinal cord was wonderfully improved and nearly cured in the course of six months with Phosphorus in the 1,000th and the 10,000th potency. HAEMORRHAGE AND FIBROID TUMOUR AT THE CHANCE OF LIFE.– The haemorrhage and all other disagreeable symptoms were cured in the course of a year with Lachesis, followed by Phosphorus, both given in high potencies. NERVOUS BREAKDOWN.– A young girl, who suffered from neurasthenia owing to sorrow caused by a love affair, was cured in three weeks with Ignatia in the 10,000th. NERVOUS FEARS.– A lady of 54, who suffered because she feared to meet people, to go into crowds, and to go out because she dreaded that she would not be able to find a public convenience, was cured in six months with Sulphur in the 1,000th potency. SWALLOWING TROUBLE.– A child of 2 was brought to me and the mother told me that it was unable to swallow any solid food. It could not masticate and would take no nourishment except liquids. The child suffered also from facial eczema which had been in existence for several months. A single dose of Calcarea in the 1,000th potency enable the mother, to her great surprise, to feed the child on solid food, biscuits, etc. The child rapidly learned to masticate thoroughly and within six weeks the eczema had completely disappeared. These few cases are come of the patients whom I have seen in the course of a day. They gladden the heart of ma homoeopath, for they show the efficacy of the law of similars by his cures with highly potentized medicines. Ones satisfaction to produce cures like those described is increased by their having been brought about by a single remedy which was allowed to develop its full power of action before another dose of the same medicine in the same or in a higher potency was prescribed. Besides, no change of medicine was undertaken until the effect of the dose originally given had become fully established. If one changes haphazard from one medicine to the other or prescribes several medicines at the same time, one knows no longer which medicine has been responsible for improvement or for a cure.     Book NATIONAL JOURNAL OF HOMOEOPATHY by Vishpala Parthasarathy.

Psoriasis is one of the most obstinate skin conditions, which at the same times takes sudden turns for better or for worse without any apparent reason. And one has not infrequently seen cases clear up remarkably quickly after being given a Homoeopathic remedy and remain clear for a long time. Then on a recurrence when the patient comes for repetition of that “wonderful medicine” and after carefully taking the case again the same remedy is still indicated, what do we sometimes find? Not a disappearance of the eruption as before, but an obstinate persistence. However you will agree that we have quite good grounds for believing that the remedies given had some influence on the favourable course of the eruption”. (DR. ALVA BENJAMIN) Some Psoriasis cases treated by Dr. Benjamin are – Case 1: Mrs. W. K., aged 20 gave a history of having had an irritating rash above the left elbow with scaling for about an year. This condition had persisted in spite of many level treatments. She loved company and craved sympathy. She was a very quiet-spoken, dark, attractive young woman, with psoriatic patches as described above. She was given one dose of Pulsatilla 10 M. She was not seen for over 3 months when she reported a steady improvement and the patch on the side had almost completely disappeared and the patch on the elbow was steadily improving. No further medicine was given. When she reported again after 6 months, she said that she had been quite clear for a long time. (Note – Dr. P S Krishnamurthy prepared a complete anamnesis of psora and found the common factor Pulsatilla in the analysis,” I use Pulsatilla in cases of Psoriasis when no other remedy is coming forward for prescription. In addition to this, I usually use Pulsatilla in between the indicated remedies. But when it is indicated, I use it in almost all the available potencies in different scales until the edge of the Pulsatilla potency is completely rubbed off” – Dr. P.S. Krishnamurthy) Case 2: Mr. A.R. aged 19, had psoriasis in the shins, which had persisted since he was a child. It was generally worse in the winter. The rash, at the time of consultation, had also spread to the trunk. His general health was good except that he was constipated. He was tall, thin, and pale. Finding very few symptoms to prescribe upon. Dr. Benjamin remembered that the patients elder brother also suffered from Psoriasis and had done well on Natrum-mur, for which he gave clear indications, and therefore he prescribed Natrum-mur 10 M for this patient also with the result that in a months time all the lesions were very much less. After 5 weeks, when there was a slight relapse, another dose of Nat-mur 10 M was given with gratifying result; in four months time he was clear of the psoriasis. Dr. Benjamin himself advises that he would not advocate this method of prescribing but at times in the absence of any indications for any other remedy it may be useful. (Note – There was some evidence to believe genetic predisposition to psoriasis in this case). Case: 3 A very little woman who had a mild psoriatic eruption for several years. She was the typical “gold cane” Arsenic patient. Dr. Benjamin tried many potencies of Ars-alb ranging from 3x to 10M but got only temporary improvement, until he gave her for a short while four minim doses of Liquor-arsenicalis; thereafter a permanent cure was affected. Case : 4 Mr. S V P, age 75 years consulted Dr. M.P. Nimbhorkar for treatment of psoriasis, patches of which were found on hands, legs, elbows and back for over 4 years other treatments gave no relief. He had severe itching and burning with restlessness, worse by cold, every winter and better by hot application. Desire for alcoholic drinks. Always slept with hands over his head. Great exhaustion after exertion. Had malaria earlier. There was a family history of father suffering from psoriasis and mother from eczema. Younger sister had also psoriasis. He was given Ars-alb 30, one dose on 29-5-1980 and was asked to report after one month, he came back after a fortnight with increasing patches with burning, itching and restlessness. Given placebo for 2 months. After 2 months the patient complained of spread of psoriasis to new spots with itching and burning. He was given one dose of Ars-alb 200 on 4 Sept. 1980 with placebo for 2 months. After that he felt better and itching and burnings were less; he was prescribed Ars-alb 1 M and 10 Nov1980 with placebo for 2 months. Arsenic -alb had given definite relief but the patches remained when he was seen on 10Feb. 1981, there were changes in his symptoms. Itching and burning in spots better by cold water. General feeling of uneasiness in morning. Difficult to concentrate and gather his ideas. Arms very painful, worse by pressure. He was given, DNA 1 M one dose; repeated on 12 March 1981. The patient was better and when there was relapse in certain spots one more dose of DNA 1 M was repeated in August 1982. After 2 months there was improvement and only a small patch remained on left leg. The patient continued to improve and when he was seem again after a lapse of six years in May 1988, he had no psoriasis. In this case DNA played a prominent part as a supportive medicine as heredity seemed to be a causative factor. Dr. M.P. NIMBHORKAR Case 5: Mr. M.S. aged 32 consulted the doctor on 22 Aug. 1988 for the psoriatic patches on his skin, since the last 5 years. Rosy colour spot in skin itching, burning and swelling and worse after coition. Patient is very sensitive to cold and pain in his feet better by motion. Eruption on skin worse cold weather. He had a past history of syphilis in young age. Father had eczema. In Kents repertory (P 1328) only a single medicine is given against the rubric – Itching, coition after. He was given Agaricus 200 one dose on 22 August 1988. After one month burning and itching were less but patches remained one more dose of Agaricus 200 repeated on 25 Sept. 1988 with SL for 2 months. There was some improvement but the patient complained of severe pains in joints and bones in nights. Taking note of the past history of syphilis he was given Syphilinum 1 M dose on 10 Dec. 1988. There was a lot of improvement. Continued on placebo till March 1989. As a few patches were still there the doctor gave Syphilinum 10 M. After 2 months seen and there was a lot of improvement. SL and the patient continued to improve. Dr. M.P. NIMBHORKAR SOURCES: 1) Homoeopathic Treatment of skin diseases. Dr. Alva Benjamin – The Hahnemann gleanings, April 1952. 2) Psoriasis – Dr. M.P.

Subject Cases Remedy Agar / Thuj / Rhus-t. That Odd Symptom In his Organon, Aphorism 153, Dr.Hahnemann said in “this search for a Homoeopathic specific remedy, the more striking, singular, uncommon and peculiar (characteristic) signs and symptoms of the case of the disease are chiefly and most solely to be kept in view”. That odd symptom which leads to the similimum is got from observation or during interview. Some of the cases from our vast literature where the prescription was based on that odd symptom are presented below:- CASE 1: Cough followed by sneezing The lady was obviously feeling very low in spirits and depressed. Her chief troubles were utter exhaustion, periodic sore throats and indigestion relieved by eating. There was a feeling of trembling in stomach, with constipation and nightly aggravation. During daytime she felt as though her organs were almost paralyzed and she felt better at night. She was also very jealous of her husband. As these symptoms gave a fairly good picture of Lachesis, Dr. Eric F W Powell was about to give her a dose of Lachesis 1M. As the patient was conversant with Homoeopathy, she inquired as to what was being prescribed and in what potency. When informed of the remedy, she said “that is what Dr X (a Homoeopath) gave me and it did not help me at all”. She said that Doctor also was a high potency man. Dr. Powell therefore thought his selection of Lachesis was wrong. While talking with the doctor, she coughed two or three times and each little cough was followed by a sneeze. After searching in a detailed repertory. Dr. Powell prescribed Agaricus 200 3 doses, as that remedy covered her other symptoms as well. After initial aggravation, the patient improved in all her symptoms. Kents Repertory pg 804 contains this rubric – Cough, sneezing ends in – AGAR, Arg-n, Rad, Bell., bry, caps, carb-v, cina, hep, lyc, psor, sang. Squil, Sulph. T.F. Allens Handbook on Agaricus says – “Violent and isolated attacks of cough ending with repeated sneezing. Violent during the day; in morning, also on awaking; at noon with repeated sneezing”. CASE 2: Sweating on uncovered parts only. The patient had an obstinate attack of constipation, which for seven days resisted all medicines like castor oil, injections etc. He was in great pain and it was in the lower umbilical region and was intense in all lower parts of the abdomen. The mans face was covered with sweat and his hands were moist but his body was dry. Dr. George prescribed Thuja high based on the last mentioned symptom. While the previous day was all despair and confusion, next day was one of cheer and happiness as his constipation and pain were relieved dramatically. (This article was published as far back as 1904 in the Medical Advance and was reproduced in Oct 1963 issue of the Homoeopathic World published in UK. The other peculiar symptom, of Thuja the disposition to leave sentences unfinished in conversation “commences every sentence anew without ability to finish may also be noted. Synthetic Repertory pg 938 – Finish sentence, cannot – Ars, Can-i, lach, med, thuj. The exact proved symptom appears as a rubric in Knerrs Repertory p. 75 under Talking.) CASE 3: Burning Palm An otherwise healthy woman consulted Dr. Hesse for what she termed as a trifling ailment but which made her desperate. She complained of burning in the palm of her right hand with a sensation as if she kept her hand in boiling water. It was aggravated by rest, in the cold, by holding cold objects and greatly in cold water and after midnight till morning. Relief was felt by letting the palm hang down, by motion, warmth and in hot water. At about 3 pm, the hand and whole forearm burns. She has to get up and run about. The hand felt paralyzed and as if asleep for hours. She is obliged to hold something light in her hand. Dr. Hesse initially prescribed Ars-alb, twice a day. There was no change. So, Rhus-tox 3x twice a day was prescribed and after three days the pain became unbearable. Dr. Hesse gave Rhus-tox 200 daily one dose for 2 days. The pain was relieved after two days. Patient slept better. After a week Rhus-tox 30 one dose; there was great improvement. She could work with her hand even in cold water. Dr. S. Lilienthal while commenting on this case stated “The selection of Rhus Tox was a splendid one, as it is our great antiparalyticum; the burning of the palm shows the paretic state of the vaso motors supplying it. Just let one try to hold a piece of ice in the hand and he will feel that icy coldness at first produced by the contraction of vasomotors and after a while a burning sensation produced by paretic dilation of the vasomotors and increased flow of blood SOURCES: 1) That Odd Symptom – by Eric F W Powell in The Homoeopathic World, Dec 1962. 2) Three Important Thuja Symptoms – in the Homoeopathic World, Oct. 1963. 3) Clinical Medicine – in The Homoeopathic Heritage, July 1988. 4) Kents and Knerrs Repertories.     Book NATIONAL JOURNAL OF HOMOEOPATHY by Vishpala Parthasarathy.

A 22 years old male patient had continuous moderate to high fever. Was on allopathic treatment since 5 days. On the 6th day the fever shot up to 104.5 F and the patient was in a state of delirium. Homoeopathic treatment was asked. The patient when seen was drowsy; staring with eyes open wide, delirium; jerking of extremities, frequently. Shouting with convulsions of both the legs again goes into stupor. No neck stiffness or rigidity. There was however retention of urine. The bladder was full but the patient had not passed urine since past 9 hours. Treatment: Helleborus 200, 4 doses. One dose to be taken every 3 hours. Wet pack for the head and sponge bath as auxillary treatment. After 2-3 hours, the general condition of the patient started improving. A good quantity of urine was passed. The temperature dropped to 102 F. By next morning, there was no fever and the patient was well. Repertorial Rubrics:

CASE 2: Chronic Vertigo A female patient, aged 38, had a history of severe vertigo since 1981. She was married with a single child. She had undergone a hysterectomy for excessive bleeding which did not respond to therapeutic treatment. Her complaints started thereafter. An EEG, CAT Scan-skull and other investigations did not reveal any pathology. Her ENT checkup was also normal. She was taking Vertin tablet daily, as prescribed by an allopathic doctor. The patient came in 1992. A detailed case revealed the constitutional drug – Calcarea-carb. A main symptom that the patient presented was – Fear of getting mad. Calc-carb 200 BD for a few days brought in a remarkable improvement. Calc-carb in graduated potencies cured the case completely. She has no more vertigo. Repertorial Rubrics: Vertigo – KR 96 (Calc-c 3) Fear of insanity – KR 45 (Calc-c 3) *Menses Copious – KR 725 (Calc-carb 3) *In retrospect – perhaps the menstrual flooding could have been arrested and the uterus too saved if only Calc-carb or any other suitable homoeopathic drug had been given then. CASE 3: Relapsed Typhoid A boy of 12 years had another attack of fever after a gap of 12 days. There was a high fever on the 4th day with delirium. Antibiotics and other orthodox treatment were not useful. Homoeopathic treatment tried at this stage. The boy was in a stage of delirium. He was muttering something in stupor. The relatives said that he was saying his evening prayers. Stramonium 200 a few doses brought down the temperature and the boy recovered fully in 3 days. Repertorial Rubrics: Delirium – Synoptic Key – Pg. 50 (Stram 3) Praying – Synoptic Key – Pg. 53 (Stram 1) CASE 4: Severe neuralgic pain in the spine A 17 years old college student came with severe agonising pain at the spot just above the sacrum. It was since 15 days that he had this pain. Treatment at the hospital with analgesics were not of much help. The X-ray of spine taken from all positions (Frontal, Lateral and Oblique) did not reveal any abnormality. Sitting was the most uncomfortable position. Agaricus 200 three doses for 2 days was given which relieved the pain and the student went about with his daily normal activities thereafter. Agaricus 1M was given again to complete the cure. Repertorial Rubrics: Pain at sacrum – KR 918 (Agar 3) Worse sitting – KR 918 (Agar 3 only one drug). CASE 5: Bells Palsy A 64 years old male patient had a severe hacking cough and sleeplessness since a few days. On 7-3-93 at night he had a difficulty in speaking, as if the tongue was paralyzed. On examination the left side of the face seemed paralyzed. There was a lot of lachrymation from the left eye. Opening the mouth fully was difficult. (He was a businessman having a lot of stress at the factory, office and home). Treatment: 7-3-93 Cocculus 200 4 doses (one dose every 4 hours) 9-3-93 Cocculus 1000 2 doses (12 hours apart) The next day i.e. on 10-3-93 a remarkable improvement was seen. There was no paralysis and the patient could speak well. However, the hacking cough persisted. 12-3-93 Senega 6, 8 doses were given. (one dose every 4 hours daily for two days). 14-3-93 Senega 1000 2 doses, 12 hours apart. Repertorial Rubrics:

  1. Face paralysis – KR 390 (Cocc 2, Seneg 1)
  2. Face paralysis one side – Kr 390 (Cocc 2)
  3. Tongue paralysis – KR 414 (Cocc 2)
  4. Paralysis face, left side – Boericke 584 (Senega)
  5. Loss of sleep – KR 1402 (Cocc 3)
  6. Cough of old people – KR 798 (Senega 2)
  7. Mortifications ailments from KR 68 (Senega 2)

CASE 6: Unstable Angina A 61 years old patient had chest pain and was under treatment of a cardiologist since a week. He was prescribed –

  1. Tab Dilcardia 30 mg tds
  2. Tab Sorbitrate 10 mg 1-2 qds
  3. Tab Eprin 150 mg od
  4. Tab Rantac 150 mg 1 od

There was no improvement inspite of the treatment. The chest pain and numbness in the left arm was rather worsening. He also had giddiness. On 28-3-93 the patient consulted for homoeopathic treatment. Chief Complaint: Chest (Left side) above the nipple, severe spasmodic pain, squeezing in nature; pain shooting to left hand; numbness of upper arms of left hand. The pain was worse motion and lying down. A mild massage gave him some relief. Vertigo was worse by motion and worse rising from a lying down posture. There was a feeling that the chest is tightened and squeezed when the pain occurred. Treatment: Cactus 200 six doses. One dose every 3-4 hours. Follow-up: A remarkable improvement was seen from the very first dose itself, subsequently Cactus 200 was given twice daily till 31-3-93 by which time the patient was completely relieved of the chest pain and vertigo. The patient came again on the 6-9-93 with severe bleeding piles and constipation. The complaint went with a few doses of Cactus 200. (He had a past history of piles which was operated years ago). Repertorial Rubrics:

  1. Pain heart – KR 849 (Cact 3)
  2. Pain worse lying on left side – KR 850 (Cact 2)
  3. Numbness, upper limbs left side – KR 1036 (Cact 3)
  4. Vertigo – KR 96 (Cact 2)

[ Read by title before I.H.A., Bureau of Clinical Medicine, July 27, 1939]. JULIA M. GREEN, M.D. CASE I. Belladonna. Of course there are plenty and plenty of cases helped by Belladonna; we feel well acquainted with its action so you may say there is no need to call this remedy unusual. But I was much surprised with it in this case. Mrs. V.K.W., 35 years old, was taken Feb. 7 of this year with a severe attack of influenza which was epidemic at the time. After three days of rather high fever and the cardinal symptoms of the epidemic, which were much helped by Kali bi., her husband and two children came down with the same thing. She left her bed to care for them, pushing herself far beyond her strength. The hard, dry, racking cough caused involuntary urination and near exhaustion. Nothing given helped this cough, though other symptoms improved. Puls. was tried and then Phos. Then her chronic remedy, Zinc., was given, apparently without effect. Finally. the evening of Feb. 22, I was below 105, eyes looked glassy had she was delirious. This was all true. In addition her face was much flushed; she complained of burning all over; skin dry; headache violent, throbbing; very restless. She had sudden sharp pains in throat and chest. Wild delirium came and went; she would not know who she was or where she was, talking incoherently, then suddenly rational again for a short time. I gave her Bell. 2C. for these obvious symptoms of that drug, when to my surprise it removed all other symptoms too. Next morning temperature was nearly normal and did not again rise above 100. Sleep, which had been almost wholly absent for about ten days, returned, peacefully. The general aching left; the vile taste was gone; she could eat again with relish; the cough declined rapidly and the urine was controlled from the start. After a few groups of Bell. 2c. in water, she had no more medicine for a week when Bell. 1M. was given as the nervous weakness, trembling and sleeplessness returned. It was repeated in another week and acted well both times. After three weeks Bell. 10M. was given because of a sudden exhaustion returning. This time there was no reaction and ten days later she was given her old chronic remedy, Zinc., once more. QUERY: Is there a known relationship between Bell. and Zinc.?. CASE II. Lactuca. A slender, graceful woman of 35 years, unmarried, skin soft and smooth, has extremely poor inheritance. She seems to have both venereal miasms and psora mixed; never strong, always ailing. Some of the marked, recurrent symptoms: Swelling of eyelids, upper and lower. Itching edges of lids. Injection of conjunctivae. Aching eyeballs with photophobia, sensation of cold air blowing in them. Skin so dry must grease it; on face as if thick and tightly drawn. Throat: pulsations. Itching all over after shower bath. Spells of great nervousness in the night, as if she would lose her mind, shrieking, tossing arms about, could not control them, sensation as if she would fly to pieces, Back, upper dorsal: sensation of great weakness; aching, must support it with hands when sitting and in bed. Full of mucus; some in eyes, much in throat, stomach; leucorrhoea profuse. Hungry all the time but abdomen distended easily after eating. Swelling ankles, hands, as well as eyes and face. Taste bad; breath offensive. Lactuca, given on symptoms of face and the hysterical symptoms at night, created a marked general improvement. CASE III. Sambucus. A large, stocky child of medium complexion was 19 months old when I first saw her. She had always been fussy about food, refusing one thing after another, always restless and wakeful at night and hard to get to sleep in the daytime. She has been ill for two months with pneumonia when about 6 months old. She would waken at 1 or 2 a.m. with crowing respiration and a hoarse sawing kind of cough accompanied by high fever and dripping sweat. In such attacks eyelids apt to be swollen and eyes sometimes glassy, expressionless; skin pale and moist. Coarse rales could be heard in the upper bronchi. Fussy, very restless, wanting water but no food. Some salivation. These feverish attacks came every few weeks and between them the cough became almost constant, < after midnight, driving the family wild. Sometimes frequent sneezing with the cough. The usual croup remedies did nothing; Merc. held for a time; Calc. and Sulph. produced only temporary relief. Finally, after nearly two years of searching for the right remedy while attacks grew closer together until the child was sick more than half the time, I gave her a dose of Sambucus 2C. In twelve days the cough was about gone. Sambucus 2M. was given for more fever. There was improvement then for eight months when Sambucus 2M. was given for another attack, much lighter. Meantime the patient has grown wonderfully, looks well, temperament improved. I would hardly know her for the same child. While Sambucus was doing it first good work I thought she had gone to another doctor because the former frequent calls for help stopped so suddenly. CASE IV. Agaricus. A child of five years, plump with firm flesh, light complexion, has many common symptoms and some unusual one, e.g.: Tendency to mouth breathing. Nose stopped tight with mucus welling forth. Tonsils not large, uvula long, swollen, Grinding teeth in sleep. Perspiration free, head, neck, hands, feet. Desire sweets, rich foods. Cannot stand soap around nose, causes sneezing. Tendency to chest colds and asthma. Cough croupy, alternating with sneezing all night long. Wheezing all over chest. Dyspnoea accompanied by yawning. Extreme restlessness. Pulling hair, clapping hands, throwing herself, finally weeping. Itching all over so cannot sleep, very restless. Attacks of pain mid-abdomen, cramp-like, accompanied by nausea and vomiting. aching legs prevent sleep, wants them rubbed. Itching eyes and nose, keeps rubbing them. Nose red; sore. Agaricus has made this child over in six months; potencies from 2c. to 1M. 10M. so far. She has milder attacks farther apart, is far less nervous, can sleep all night. WASHINGTON, D.G. Anacardium orientale: Nervous depression; depression of regions of special senses. Weak memory. Sensation of impending misfortune (consider also Calc. c. and Gels.). Irritable, contradictory. Seems as if one could not control the will; knows it is wrong, but cannot resist doing it. Suspects everybody. Disregard of religious things; tendency to swear, cannot resist profanity. Do not punish a child for swearing; give it Anac. Prostration. Epileptiform seizures. Voracious appetite, must eat. This remedy most surely would have changed the mental condition of Esau and he might not have traded his birthright for a mess of pottage to relieve his awful hunger. V.M.JOHNSON, M.D.       Book Journal Of Homoeopathic Clinics Volume 1869-1870 Volume III, N-1 Author G .W.Pope Subject Cases Remedy Agar Case 453 Agaricus in Vertigo.-Hon. Mr.-, aged about 40, robust, ruddy and plethoric, large head and massive chest, sedentary, a free liver, and habitual but not immoderate user of tobacco and stimulants had suffered for nearly two years from frequent attacks of vertigo with the usual heaving and whirling of objects about him; tendency to fall forward, partial amaurotic blindness, with floating muscae and vibrating spectra, and partial numbness of the left side of the tongue. Temporary constipation; exciting debate, or protracted mental application invariably brought on the attacks, which were accompanied by slight nausea, but unusual change of color, coolness of extremities, nor heat of scalp. Free catharsis, aided by abstemious diet, generally mitigated the severity of the attacks, the usual duration of which were from twelve to thirty-six hours. As the exciting nature of his profession, and his frequently protracted and extravagant mental efforts seemed to require the aid of stimulants, a radical change in his habits was out of the question. Hence a part of the treatment must necessarily be antipathic or palliative. He was directed to take some prompt cathartic whenever constipation threatened an attack, and Nux, Bell., Ignat., Glon. and Cocc., in medium and high potencies, were faithfully applied without effect. Finally, I prescribed ten or fifteen drop doses of the tincture of Agaricus, three times daily, whenever the symptoms appeared, and also directed its use for three or four days after the attacks passed away. The effect was admirable. Each successive attack was greatly diminished in severity and duration, they became less and less frequent, and finally, in less than three months after the first exhibition of the remedy, wholly disappeared. Nearly two years have elapsed since the last attack, and Hon, Mr.___’s health is as robust, and his habits as careless and convivial as ever.-N. Amer. Jour. Vol. IX, 1861, p. 364, 5.

Subject Cases Remedy Agar / Calc / Lyc Psoric irritation of spine and eye Psoric Irritation of Spine and Eyes. Calc., Lyc., Agaricus. October 7th, 1880. Miss Mary C., aged sixteen, consulted me, with the following history and symptoms: Has had weak eyes from infancy, which have been worse for one month. She menstruated at ten years, when she began to be sick, suffering from spasms of pain, leucorrhoea and numbness of limbs, so that she could not feel the floor on walking. The menses have been irregular at intervals varying from two to ten weeks, copious and free from pain; the interval is now about three weeks. She sees only the left half of objects; in place of the right half bright zigzags; sees bright spots green, red and white; also, a mist before the eyes, so that distant objects look dim. She suffers much from heat in the eyes and pressure in the back of the orbits; worse from looking fixedly, from reading, from bright light, natural or artificial, from mental exertion, and in the evening. This heat is also worse from closing the lids and in wind, better from cold applications. There is itching of the lids and canthi. She has constant pain in the temples and over the eyes, worse in warm room and weather, from exertion of the eyes and in wind. There is heat, smarting and a sense of sticks and distress in the spine. The backache is worse from standing and walking, and is relieved by pressure in the lumbar region; but pressure in the dorsal region excites laughter. The local and constitutional symptoms were together regarded as most similar to those of Calcarea Carbonica, of which she received Dunham’s 200th potency, night and morning for three days. Improvement set in at once; but delight at being able to use her eyes, led to over-use of them, and the report by letter a month later was, that nausea from use of the eyes, heat of the face, pain in the back from lifting, as if she had no feeling except in the back, coldness between the shoulders, extending to the sides, and cold feet had been added to the farmer symptoms. She received Lycopodium c. m. (Swan), morning and evening for four days. In three weeks, December 1st, her mother wrote that the back was almost well, but that the head and eyes were worse, paining severely and incessantly, with heat in the head and face, so that she could not stay in a room of ordinary warmth. Phosphorus, in high potency, was sent her, without benefit, and again Calcarea, with but little improvement. She reported again as follows: The eyes worse, the pain constant, deep-seated and sharp shooting, worse in light and from reading, better in cold air and in twilight. Heat in the eyes; they burn on closing the lids and from exertion. The feet are very cold and swollen, with troublesome chilblains. The spine is sensitive to touch in various parts. The chilblains suggested Agaricus, which, on examination, was found to present the principal symptoms of the case. Heat in the eyes, worse from closing the lids, inability to use the eyes, with painful sensitiveness to light; mist before the eyes, dryness, itching of the canthi, soreness of the spine to touch and troublesome chilblains, with cold feet, were all found under Agaricus. Accordingly, seven powders of Finch’s 900th potency were sent her, with the request to take one every morning. In a few weeks she reported by letter that soon after beginning the last remedy, she got better; that she could use her eyes at any kind of work, and that she seemed in every respect well. Recent inquiry elicited the information that she has remained well.     Volume 1888 Vol VIII No 1 Author == Subject Cases Remedy Agar / Bov / Bry / Lil-t / Corh (Read by Flora. A. Waddell, M. D., at the Homoeopathic Medical Society Delaware, Ohio, May 8th And 9th, 1888.) My name being placed in the Bureau of Clinical Medicine for this year, I will respond by calling your attention to a continuation of the subject of last year, the verification of some of the symptoms occurring in my practice since that time. I hope some others present have something to offer on this subject, as verified symptoms soon make a strong and indisputable work of reference on which all may depend. Toes itch and burn; are red and swollen, as if frost bitten. This condition had annoyed the patient for eight years, every spring and fall; was very severe. The only relief obtained was by applying Chloroform to the affected parts. This would relieve for a short time. Gave Agaricus 30x two doses, one hour apart, which entirely relieved for two weeks, when a slight return made it necessary to repeat the dose. Has not had a return since taking the last medicine, over a year ago. Had four other cases of chilblains presenting the same symptoms cured by Agaricus. A lady having diarrhoea before and during menses, so severe as to debilitate her very much. Had been troubled for the past three years. Noticed, while talking to her, dents on her fingers caused by the scissors she had been using. The patient said any hard pressure left such marks. That made me think of Bovista. On looking over the proving found it had all the symptoms she gave me. Put up some powders of the 30x to be taken one three times per day, during her need of them. The morning of the fifth day she came into the office, saying, “I have something new the matter this month. For the last three mornings I awakened with such fearful cramps in my lower limbs that I cannot stand it any longer. I have to rub and work with them a long time before I can get up, when it passes of until the next morning, when it is the same thing over again.” I went to a repertory, as the condition was not a common one, aud found Bovista was the remedy, the cramps being a proving. I gave Sac. Lac., and in a few days they disappeared, She was much improved otherwise. The next month gave the 200x, one dose every other night. This did not cause any trouble and cured the diarrhoea, as there lias not been a return for the past four months. A lady had pneumonia; was not called until the third day of her sickness. On entering the room the sight was startling. It seemed as if there was small chance for anything to afford relief, still less to cure. The effort for breath was so great, the eyes seemed fairly starting from their sockets. In broken words she gasped, “I cannot move, I cannot breathe for this pain in my lungs.”Every effort to cough would start the tears. I dissolved a few pellets of Bryonia 45m in a teaspoonful of water and dropped a few drops at a time on her tongue. In about fifteen minutes she commenced to breathe easier; in an hour she could turn with help, and in three hours was asleep. Gave Sac. Lac., every hour; only one dose more of Bryonia, same potency, the third day, as improvement seemed to cease, This should convince the most skeptical that virtue exists In the high potency as well as the low when applied according to the rules laid down in our guide book, The Organon of Samuel Hahnemann. A Methodist minister’s wife had for the last eight years been afflicted with rush of blood to the head, chest, and arms, so severe as to make life a misery. Feet cold, and must constantly move them, especially after lying down at night. Hering gives the symptoms under Lilium tig. like this: Fullness of head with pressure outward, as if contents would be forced through every aperture, conscious pulsations over whole body, and out pressing in hands and arms, as if the blood would burst through the vessels. Constant motion of the feet and limbs on lying down. Gave Lilium 200x, one dose every night until relieved, then three times per week until cured. The peculiar symptom in this case was that she paid her bill and sent a number of her friends to me for treatment. In our part of the country the ministers expect us to do their work for thanks and help to pay their salaries besides. I now wish to call the attention of the physicians present to a remedy called Crawley. I have never seen it mentioned in homoeopathic literature, have never known of a proving. I have produced a few symptoms in cases where I have been giving it, but they were too sick at the time to push the drug effects any further. King’s Dispensatory gives all the knowledge I have of it except my own experience. It states that it was used by the M. D.’s of long ago for fevers in its powdered state. I obtained some fresh roots and made a tincture of them. The high price I paid for them should have made it resemble Aurum metallicum. From this I prepared the third potency and commenced experimenting with it. I found it would cure the common fevers for which we usually give Aconite very much the same way. It is very effective in the, first stage of typhoid, which Aconite is not. It will break hectic fever where it has not passed beyond the stage of cure without leaving the patient prostrate afterward. There is another peculiar fever we meet with occasionally that I have never been able to cure with anything. Perhaps others have been more successful. Such cases as have had this condition for a number of years coming on in the forenoon and lasting until midnight, the fever reaching its height about two o’clock in the afternoon. Can bear only the lightest covering at night, even in the winter time. They do not have a chill in the beginning, no perspiration following. From twelve o’clock until morning can be covered and sleep well. Appetite good. Usually able to be about, but very nervous in the afternoon. This fever has some diseased conditions aside from the fever not the same in all cases. I have found it in both sexes, and with very different symptoms in each case. Would remove all the rest of the trouble with the properly selected remedy, and expect this fever to go also. Alas for my expectations they failed to be realized. Without a knowledge of this remedy should have failed in curing my cases. As an illustration, I will give one case. Lady, thirty years of age. Has had urinary trouble for five years, accompanied with headache, etc., a well marked Sulphur case. Gave Sulphur200x and upward until it removed all the urinary and head symptoms. She said: “There is one trouble your medicine does not reach. I am better than I ever expected to be, and would think I was well if it was not for this fever I have coming on every day in the forenoon and lasting till midnight. I cannot bear only the lightest covering, and the soles of my feet, the inside of my hands, feel as if on fire, and I get so nervous in the afternoon I scarcely know what to do. Still can work some, and go about all the time.”I said, “How long have you had this trouble so bad? “She answered, “About four years.”I had given Sulphur. Now gave Sanguinaria, then tried Chamomilla, but without improvement. Then I gave third potency of Crawley root, a dose to be taken three times a day. In three weeks was well. My hearers are ready to ask by this time,”Did you never have any failures? Do you want us to think your judgment is never at fault, that your medicine always works like a charm?” I would say this. It is ten years since I commenced to practice Homoeopathy according to the light I had given me. I have cases all the time in which my diagnosis is at fault. Sometimes from carelessness, sometimes from my imperfect knowledge of the materia medica, and, to tell the truth about it, sometimes because I do not know. I would relate some of it if I could see where it could benefit you, but I do not doubt but that you all have had enough of that in your own early experience not to need any of mine in addition; but this I do know, my greatest successes are achieved with the single remedy and potencies of the 200x and upward. Wishing you all success and happiness, I bid you adieu.

অ্যাগারিকাস মাসকেরিয়াস

অ্যাগারিকাসের প্রথম কথা — অঙ্গ-প্রত্যঙ্গের নর্তন, স্পন্দন বা আক্ষেপ ৷

মেরু-মজ্জা, মস্তিষ্ক এবং স্নায়ুকেন্দ্রের দুর্বলতাবশতঃ অ্যাগারিকাসের বুদ্ধিবৃত্তি যেমন স্ফূর্তি লাভ করে না, অঙ্গ-প্রত্যঙ্গের গতিবিধিও তেমনই বাধ্যবাধকতার বাহিরে চলিয়া যায়। ফলে অ্যাগারিকাসের রোগী যখন চলিতে চায় তখন কোথায় পা দিতে কোথায় পা দিয়া ফেলে, যখন কিছু ধরিতে চায় তখন হাতের আঙ্গুলগুলি হঠাৎ এমন ভাবে বাঁকিয়া যায় বা অবশ হইয়া পড়ে যে হাত হইতে তাহা পড়িয়া গিয়া ভাঙ্গিয়া যায়; তিরস্কার করিলে সময় সময় সে হাসিতে থাকে, সময় সময় সে ভীষণ রাগিয়া যায়। হাটিতে শিখিতে বা কথা কহিতেও তাহার বিলম্ব হয়। অতএব বুদ্ধিবৃত্তির খর্বতা এবং অঙ্গ-প্রত্যঙ্গের নর্তন, আক্ষেপ বা স্পন্দন অ্যাগারিকাসের শ্রেষ্ঠ পরিচয়। ভবিষ্যদ্বাণী করিতে থাকে, কবিতা বলিতে থাকে । নর্তন, স্পন্দন জাগ্রত অবস্থাতেই প্রকাশ পায়, নিদ্রাকালে পায় না । অ্যাগারিকাসের রোগী একটু স্থূলকায় হয় ।

অ্যাগারিকাসের দ্বিতীয় কথা— মেরুদণ্ডের স্পর্শকাতরতা। অ্যাগারিকাসের রোগীর মেরুদণ্ডের উপর সামান্য একটু চাপ দিলে সে চমকাইয়া ওঠে। নিজেও যখন সে নড়াচড়া করে তখনও খুব সন্তর্পণে  তাহা করিতে বাধ্য হয় কারণ অতি অল্পেই সে মেরুদণ্ডে আঘাত পায় ৷ স্তনের দুধ বাধা প্রাপ্ত হইয়া মেরুদণ্ড বা মস্তিষ্ক-প্ৰদাহ । গাত্র বা ত্বকে ঠাণ্ডা বা গরম সূচিবিদ্ধবৎ অনুভূতি।

অ্যাগারিকাসের তৃতীয় কথা – আড়াআড়ি ভাবে রোগাক্রমণ— বাম উর্ধ্বাঙ্গ ও নিম্ন দক্ষিণাঙ্গ আক্রান্ত হয় । পক্ষান্তরে দক্ষিণ বাহু ও বাম পদ আক্রান্ত হয় (মেডো, ফস ) । স্নায়বিক দুর্বলতাজনিত অঙ্গ- প্রত্যঙ্গের অসংযত ভাব বা নর্তন, কম্পন মনে রাখিবেন ।

ঠাণ্ডা বাতাস সহ্য করিতে পারে না । গর্ভাবস্থায় পদদ্বয়ে পক্ষাঘাত । প্রৌঢ়া স্ত্রীলোকদের ঋতুবন্ধের পর জরায়ুর শিথিলতা বা স্থানচ্যুতি । উদ্ভেদ চাপা পড়িয়া মৃগী । নিদ্রাকালে আক্ষেপ থাকে না !

কবিতা আবৃত্তি করিতে থাকে—ভবিষ্যদ্বাণী করিতে থাকে। বাচাল।

অ্যাগারিকাসের চতুর্থ কথা—দেহে গরম বা ঠাণ্ডা সুচিবিদ্ধবৎ অনুভূতি (ন্যাকারাম ল্যাকটিস ) ।

মদ্যপান বা বীর্যক্ষয় হেতু স্নায়বিক দুর্বলতা। দেহে গরম বা ঠাণ্ডা হুচিনিদ্ধবৎ অনুভূতি ও মেরুদণ্ডের স্পর্শকাতরতা মনে রাখিবেন ।

ইহা থাইসিসের পুর্বাবস্থায় বিশেষ উপযোগী (অবশ্য লক্ষণ মিলিলে) ; পুরাতন কাশি ও পুঁজের মত শ্লেষ্মা, নাড়ী দুর্বল, অসমান। সন্ধ্যাকালে বুকের মধ্যে ধড়ফড় ভাব । শিশুদের সবুজবর্ণ দুর্গন্ধযুক্ত উদরাময় । বর্ষাকালে বৃদ্ধি। যেখানে চুল সেইখানেই চুলকানি ( একজিমা ) । স্ত্রীলোকদের স্তনের দুধ হঠাৎ বন্ধ হইয়া শরীরের অন্তত্র রোগাক্রমণ ; প্রত্যেকবার গর্ভাবস্থায় পদদ্বয়ের পক্ষাঘাত ।

অ্যাগারিকাস মাস্ক – অত্যন্ত ছটফটে স্বভাব, ক্রমাগত হাত হইতে জিনিষপত্র পড়িয়া যায়, কোন না কোন অঙ্গের অবিরত সঞ্চালন বা নর্তনরোগ, অতিরিক্ত শুক্রক্ষয় হেতু মেরুদণ্ডের দুর্বলতা, মেরুদণ্ডে কোনরূপ চাপ বা স্পর্শ সহ্য হয় না। এমন কি নড়িতে গেলেও মেরুদণ্ডে আঘাত লাগে, শরীরের বাম ঊর্ধ্বাঙ্গ এবং দক্ষিণ নিম্নাঙ্গ আক্রান্ত হয়, ঠাণ্ডা বাতাস সহ্য হয় না । চর্মরোগ চাপা পড়িয়া মুগী। বয়স্কা স্ত্রীলোকদিগের চিরদিনের মত ঋতু বন্ধ হইবার পর জরায়ুর শিথিলতা ।

এই ছত্রাকটির ভিতর নানাপ্রকারের বিষাক্ত যৌগিক পদার্থ আছে, এইগুলির মধ্যে সব থেকে উল্লেখযোগ্য হল মাসক্যারিন। এটির বিষক্রিয়ার লক্ষণ সঙ্গে সঙ্গে প্রকাশ পায় না, সাধারণতঃ ১২ থেকে ১৪ ঘন্টা পর প্রাথমিক লক্ষণ প্রকাশ পায়। এই ঔষধটির কোন ক্রিয়া নাশক নেই, বিষক্রিয়ার কোন চিকিৎসাও নেই, সম্পূর্ণ লক্ষণভিত্তিক (গ্লিডার)। এগারিকাস মস্তিষ্কের উপর মাদকের ন্যায় কাজ করে এবং মদের থেকে বেশি মাত্রায়। মাথাঘোরা ও তৈরী করে থাকে, এর পরে গাঢ় নিদ্রাভাব দেখা দেয় এবং শরীরের প্রতিক্রিয়ার ক্ষমতা কমে আসে। ঝাঁকুনি, পেশীর সঙ্কোচন, কাঁপা ও চুলকানি এই ঔষধের শক্তিশালী লক্ষণ। যক্ষ্মা রোগের প্রাথমিক অবস্থা; টিউবারকিউলাস ধাতুদোষের সঙ্গে সম্পর্কযুক্ত, তৎসহ রক্তাল্পতা, নর্তনরোগ, ঘুমের সময় পেশীর সঙ্কোচন বন্ধ থাকে। বিভিন্ন ধরনের স্নায়ুশূল ও আপেক্ষিক উপসর্গ ও স্নায়ুঘটিত চর্মরোগ এই জাতীয় রোগের ছবি এই ঔষধের লক্ষণের সম্পর্ক আছে, কিন্তু রক্তাধিক্যের কারণে প্রকাশিত লক্ষণের সঙ্গে এই ঔষধের লক্ষণের বিশেষ কোন সম্পর্ক দেখা যায় না। যেমন জ্বরের বিকার অবস্থা, মদ খাওয়া অবস্থা প্রভৃতি। সার্বিক পক্ষাঘাত। রোগীর মনে হয় বরফের সূঁচ ফোটানো হচ্ছে। চাপ ও ঠাণ্ডা বাতাস সহ্য হয় না। নিচের দিকে কিছু ঠেলে বেরিয়ে আসার ন্যায় তীব্র বেদনা। লক্ষণ কোনাকুনি ভাবে প্রকাশ পায় যেমন, ডানদিকের বাহু, বামদিকের পা। সবরকম যন্ত্রণার সঙ্গে ঠাণ্ডাভাব আষ্টতা ও সুড়সুড়ভাব থাকে । মন – গান করে, কথা বলে কিন্তু উত্তর দেয় না। বাচালতা। কাজে অনিচ্ছা। উদাসীনতা। ভয়শূন্যতা। গান করা, চীৎকার করা এবং বিড়বিড় করে বকা হল প্রলাপের চারিত্রিক বৈশিষ্ট্য; কবিতা বলা এবং ভবিষ্যতবাণী করা প্রলাপ বকা হাইতোলার সঙ্গে শুরু হয়। ঔষধটির প্রুভিংস থেকে মানসিক উত্তেজনার চারটি অবস্থার কথা জানা যায়। যথা, (১) সামান্য উত্তেজনায় – দেখা যায় প্রচণ্ড মানসিক আনন্দ, বর্ধিত উৎসাহ, বাচালতা, উল্লাস সম্পর্কিত মানসিক কল্পনা। (২) অতিরিক্ত মাদকতা – তীব্র মানসিক উত্তেজনা এবং অসংলগ্ন কথা বলে, পৰ্য্যায়ক্রমে তীব্র মানমূলক আয়তনের বিচার ক্ষমতার লোপ পাওয়া, বড়ো বড়ো পা ফেলে হাঁটে, ছোট বস্তুর উপর দিয়ে লাফিয়ে যায়, যেন ঐগুলি কোন গাছের গুঁড়ি, একটি ছোট গর্ত, একটি ভয়াবহ ফাটল বলে মনে হয়, সামান্য এক চামচ জল, মনে হয় একটি বড়ো হ্রদ বিশেষ। এই অবস্থায় গায়ের জোর বেড়ে যায়, অনায়াসে অতিরিক্ত ভার যুক্ত বস্তু তুলে ফেলে। এরই সাথে পেশীর সঙ্কোচন দেখা যায়। (৩) তৃতীয় দশা – এক প্রকার ভয়াবহ প্রলাপ দেখা দেয়, তীব্র চীৎকার করে, ক্রোধোন্মত্ত উক্তি, নিজেকে আঘাত করতে চায় প্রভৃতি। (৪) চতুর্থ দশা – মানসিক বিষন্নতা, ক্লান্তি, উদাসীনতা, মানসিক ভ্রান্তি, কাজ করতে অনিচ্ছা প্রভৃতি। এখানে আমরা বেলেডোনার মত তীব্র মানসিক উত্তেজনা পাইনা কিন্তু এক্ষেত্রে একটি সার্বিক স্নায়বিক উত্তেজনা ভাব দেখতে পাই, যা প্রকাশ পায় মাতালের ন্যায় প্রলাপ বকাতে, জ্বরের সময় প্রলাপ বকা প্রভৃতিতে। মাথা – সূৰ্য্যালোকে মাথা ঘোরা এবং হাঁটা চলা করলে মাথা সব সময় নড়ে। পিছন দিকে পড়ে যায়, যেন মনে হয় মাথায় পিছনের অংশে ভারী কোন বস্তু আছে। মাথার একদিকে যন্ত্রণা, যেন পেরেক ফুটে আছে। (কফিয়া, ইগ্নেশিয়া) বহুসময় ধরে টেবিলে বসে কাজ করার পর মাথায় অস্বস্তিকর বেদনা। বরফের ন্যায় ঠাণ্ডা অনুভূতি, অনেকটা বরফের সূঁচ বা গোঁজ বিদ্ধ করার ন্যায় অনুভূতি। স্নায়বিক বেদনা তৎসহ বরফের মত ঠাণ্ডা মাথা। মাথায় গরম কিছু চাপা দেবার ইচ্ছা। (সিলিকা) মাথার যন্ত্রণা তৎসহ নাক দিয়ে রক্তস্রাব অথবা গাঢ় শ্লেষ্মা স্রাব। চোখ – পড়তে অসুবিধা হয়, কারণ অক্ষরগুলি নড়াচড়া করছে বা ভাসছে বলে মনে হয়। কম্পমান ছায়ামূর্তি। দ্বিত দর্শন, দৃষ্টিশক্তি অস্বচ্ছ ও কম্পমান। দীর্ঘকাল ধরে চোখের অতি পরিশ্রমের ফলে দৃষ্টি শক্তির দুর্বলতা, দৃষ্টিশক্তি কেন্দ্রীভূত করার সময় চোখের পেশীর আক্ষেপ। চোখের পাতায় ও চোখের মনির নর্তন। (কোডিন) চোখের পাতার কিনারা লালচে। চুলকাণি, জ্বালাকরে ও চোখের পাতা জুড়ে যায়। চোখের ভিতরের কোনগুলি খুবই লাল। কান – জ্বালা এবং চুলকাণি, ঠাণ্ডায় জমে যাওয়ার ন্যায় অনুভূতি। কানের চারপাশের পেশীর নর্তন এবং কানের ভিতর শব্দ। নাক – নাকের স্নায়বিক অসুবিধা সমূহ। নাকের ভিতরে ও বাইরে চুলকায়। কাশির পর আক্ষেপযুক্ত হাঁচি; অনুভূতিপ্রবণ; জলের ন্যায়, অ-প্রদাহজনিত স্রাব। ভিতরের কোনগুলি লাল। দূর্গন্ধযুক্ত, কালচে, রক্তমিশ্রিত স্রাব। বয়স্ক ব্যক্তির নাক দিয়ে রক্তস্রাব। নাকে এবং মুখগহ্বরের ভিতর ক্ষতের ন্যায়-বেদনা । মুখমণ্ডল — মুখের পেশী শক্ত বলে মনে হয় নর্তন, মুখমণ্ডলে চুলকায় ও জ্বালা করে। গালে কেটে ফেলার ন্যায়, ছিড়ে ফেলার ন্যায় বেদনা, যেন গেঁজ বেঁধার ন্যায়। স্নায়ুশূল, যেন স্নায়ুর ভিতর দিয়ে বরফের সূঁচ চলে যাওয়ার ন্যায় অনুভূতি অথবা বরফ স্পর্শ করানোর ন্যায় অনুভূতি। মুখগহ্বর – ঠোঁটের উপর জ্বালা ও যন্ত্রণা। ঠোঁটের উপর হার্পিস। ঠোঁটের পেশীর নর্তন।মুখের স্বাদ মিষ্ট। তালুতে ক্ষত। জিহ্বাতে গোঁজ বেঁধার ন্যায় বেদনা। সর্বদা পিপাসা। কম্পমান জিহ্বা। (ল্যাকেসিস) জিহ্বা সাদা। গলা – গলার ভিতর থেকে কর্ণনালীর ভিতর দিয়ে কানের অভ্যন্তর পর্যন্ত যন্ত্রণা। সঙ্কুচিত বলে মনে হয়। ছোট, বলের মত গোলাকার শ্লেষ্মা দলা বেরিয়ে আসে। গলবিলের শুষ্কতা, ঢোক গিলতে অসুবিধা। গলায় আঁচড়ানোরমত বেদনা; গান করতে কষ্ট। পাকস্থলী — শূন্য ঢেকুর, আপেলের গন্ধযুক্ত। স্নায়বিক অসুবিধা, তৎসহ আক্ষেপিক সঙ্কোচন, হিক্কা, অস্বাভাবিক ক্ষুধা বায় জমা হবার ফলে পাকস্থলী ও উদরীর স্ফীতি। প্রচুর পরিমানে গন্ধ ছাড়া বায়ুর নির্গমন। খাবার প্রায় তিনঘন্টা পর পাকস্থলীর চারিপাশে বেদনা, পরে অস্বস্থিকর চাপের মত মনে হয়। পাকস্থলীর গোলযোগ সহ যকৃত স্থানে তীক্ষ্ন যন্ত্রণা। উদর – যকৃতে, প্লীহা (সিয়ানোথাস) ও উদরে সূচীবিদ্ধবৎ যন্ত্রণা। বামদিকের ছোট পাঁজরার অস্থির নীচে সূচীবিদ্ধবৎ বেদনা। উদরাময় তৎসহ প্রচুর দুর্গন্ধযুক্ত বায়ুর নির্গমণ। দুর্গন্ধযুক্ত মল। প্রস্রাব – প্রস্রাবনলীতে সূচীবিদ্ধবৎ বেদনা। হঠাৎ করে এবং তীব্রভাবে প্রস্রাবের বেগ। বারে বারে প্রস্রাব। স্ত্রীরোগ — অতিরিক্ত ঋতুস্রাব, নির্দিষ্ট সময়ের আগে হয়। চুলকানি এবং ছিড়ে ফেলার ন্যায়, চাপ দেবার ন্যায় বেদনা স্ত্রীযৌনাঙ্গে ও পিঠে। আক্ষেপিক বেদনা সহ ঋতুস্রাব। নীচের দিকে কিছু ঠেলে বেরিয়ে আসার ন্যায় তীব্র বেদনা। বিশেষতঃ রজোনিবৃত্তির পরে। কাম উত্তেজনা। স্তনের বোঁটা চুলকায়, জ্বালা। প্রসবের এবং সঙ্গমের পর লক্ষণ প্রকাশ পায়। সাদা স্রাব, তৎসহ তীব্র চুলকানি। শ্বাস-প্রশ্বাস — প্রচণ্ড কাশি, খাবার পরে বৃদ্ধি, যতক্ষন কাশি চলে, ততক্ষন মাথায় যন্ত্রণা। রাত্রিতে, ঘুমের পরে আক্ষেপিক কাশি, তৎসহ ছোট ছোট বলের মত শ্লেষ্মা উঠে, কষ্টকর, ভারবোধ শ্বাস- প্রশ্বাস। কাশির শেষে হাঁচি। হৃদপিণ্ড – অনিয়মিত, কোলাহল পূর্ণ, হৃদকম্প, তামাক খাবার পরে। নাড়ী সবিরাম ও অনিয়মিত। হৃদপিণ্ডস্থানে চাপবোধ, যেন মনে হয় বক্ষগহ্বরে সঙ্কুচিত হয়ে পড়েছে। হৃদকম্প, তৎসহ মুখমণ্ডল লালচে। পিঠ – যন্ত্রণা, তৎসহ মেরুদণ্ড স্পর্শকাতর, পিঠের অংশে বেশী অনুভূত হয়। কোমরের বেদনা;

সকল স্রাব গ্রন্থির প্রান্তীয় স্নায়ুকোষের উপর কাজ করে থাকে এবং এই কারণে প্রচুর লালাস্রাব, চক্ষুস্রাব ও প্রচুর ঘাম হয়ে থাকে। অ্যাট্রোপিন, মাসক্যারিনের ঠিক বিপরীত) অ্যামনিটা ভারনাস বসন্তকালীর ছত্রাক – এক জাতীয় এগার উপক্ষার – একে ডেথ কাপ বলা হয় – যার কার্যকরী উপক্ষার হল ফ্যালিন, যা মাসক্যারিনের ন্যায় কার্যকরী। অ্যামানিটা ফ্যালয়েডস (ডেথ কাপ – ডেডলি এগারিক), র‌্যাটল সাপের বিষের ন্যায় বিষাক্ত এবং এই জাতীয় বিষ কলেরা ও ডিথিরিয়া রোগ জীবানু ছেড়ে থাকে। এটি রক্তের লোহিত কণিকার উপর কাজ করে এবং এরূপ ভাবে লোহিত কণিকাগুলিকে গলিয়ে ফেলে; যার ফলে তা পোষ্টিকনলী দিয়ে বেরিয়ে আসে এবং এই সমগ্র শরীরের রক্ত নিষ্কাশিত হয়। এই বিষক্রিয়া বস্তুর পরিমান খুবই সামান্য, যদি কারুর হাতে লাগে, অথবা এইগুলির ছিদ্র থেকে যদি কেউ শ্বাস টানে তাহলেও কেউ কেউ অসুস্থ হয়ে পড়ে। এই বিষটি খুবই ধীরে ধীরে কাজ করে। এমনকি বিষয়টি গ্রহন করার ১২-২০ ঘন্টা পরেও রোগী সম্পূর্ণ সুস্থতা অনুভব করে, কিন্তু হঠাৎ করে মাথা ঘোরা, কলেরার মত মারাত্মক রোগ লক্ষণ প্রকাশ পায় তৎসহ খুব দ্রুত শারীরিক শক্তির অবক্ষয় হতে থাকে এবং দ্বিতীয় বা তৃতীয় দিনে রোগী মারা যায়, মৃত্যুর পূর্বে আচ্ছন্ন ভাব ও আক্ষেপ দেখা দেয়। মেদ জমা হবার ফলে যকৃৎ, হৃদপিণ্ড এবং বৃক্ক দুটির পরিবর্তন দেখা দেয়, ফুসফুস, প্লুরা ও চামড়া থেকে রক্তস্রাব (ডাঃ জে. সিয়ার) বমি ও উদরাময়। সর্বদা মল ত্যাগের ইচ্ছা। কিন্তু পাকস্থলী কেন্দ্রীক, উদর কেন্দ্রীক অথবা মলদ্বার কেন্দ্রীক কোন প্রকার ব্যথা-বেদনা থাকে না। ঠাণ্ডা জলপানের তীব্র পিপাসা, চর্মশুষ্ক। অলস কিন্তু মানসিকভাবে উজ্জীবিত। তীব্র পরিবর্তন, দ্রুত থেকে ধীরে এবং ধীরে থেকে দ্রুত শ্বাসপ্রশ্বাস, স্পষ্ট পতনাবস্থা, প্রস্রাব কমে যায়, কিন্তু অঙ্গ-প্রত্যঙ্গ শীতল হয় না বা খিলধরা থাকে না। এগারিক এমিট (প্রচণ্ড মাথা ঘোরা;সকল লক্ষণ ঠাণ্ডা জলে কম পড়ে; বরফের মত ঠান্ডা জল পানের তীব্র ইচ্ছা; পাকাশয় প্রদাহ তৎসহ ঠাণ্ডা ঘাম, বমি, মনে হয়, পাকস্থলী দড়ির দ্বারা ঝুলানো রয়েছে।) ট্যামাস (শীতস্ফোটক ও ছুলি) সিমিসিফ ; ক্যানাবিস ইন্ড; হায়ো ; ট্যারান্টুলা। দোষঘ্ন; এবাসিন্থ; কফিয়া, ক্যাম্ফর। মাত্রা – ৩য় থেকে ৩০ শক্তি এবং ২০০ শক্তি। চর্মরোগে এবং মস্তিষ্কের ক্লান্তিতে নিম্ন শক্তি প্রয়োগ করা হবে।

এই ঔষধের আগাগোড়া লক্ষণীয় জিনিষ অঙ্গ মোচড়ানি এবং কম্পন। পেশীর উৎক্ষেপ ও অঙ্গপ্রত্যঙ্গের কম্পন এবং দেহের সকল অংশে স্পন্দন ও মৃদু কম্পন-এই দুইটি লক্ষণ সৰ্ব্বদাই বর্তমান থাকে। পেশীর কম্পন এত বিস্তৃত হয় যে, উহা পূর্ণ বিকশিত কোরিয়া রোগেই পর্য্যবসিত হয়। ইহার প্রকৃতিতে কোরিয়া রোগে যাহা কিছু দেখা যায়, তাহার সমস্তই আছে এবং ইহা অনেক কোরিয়া রোগ গ্রস্তকে আরোগ্যও করিয়াছে। এই দেহের সমস্ত অংশে সকল পেশীতে বর্তমান থাকে। সারা দেহে রোগী সড়সড়ানি ও পিপড়া হাঁটার ন্যায় অনুভব করে। ইহা শুধু চৰ্ম্মেই সীমাবদ্ধ থাকে না, যেন মাংসের মধ্যেও বর্তমান থাকে। অনুভূতিটি যেন পিপড়া চলার ন্যায় সর্বাঙ্গে চৰ্ম্মের উপরে চুলকানি, চুলকাইলে উহা স্থান পরিবর্তন করে। উহা হইতে কোন অঙ্গই বাদ যায় না। চর্মের উপরে অথবা অঙ্গ-প্রত্যঙ্গগুলিতে যেখানে সেখানে এক অদ্ভুত অনুভূতি, ঠান্ডার অনুভূতি,—ঠান্ডা সূচফোটানবৎ অথবা গরম সূচফোটানবৎ অনুভূতি; যেখানে রক্ত সঞ্চালন দুৰ্বল সেখানে, কানের চারিদিকে, নাকে, হাতের উল্টা পিঠে এবং পায়ের আঙ্গুলে হুলফোটানবৎ এবং জ্বালাকর যাতনা; তুষারাহতের ন্যায় চুলকানি ও জ্বালা সংযুক্ত লাল লাল দাগ। ইহা শীতাস্ফোট (পাঁকুই) রোগের একটি শ্রেষ্ঠ ঔষধ। রোগী ঠান্ডায় অত্যন্ত স্নায়বিক ও স্পর্শকাতর হয়। মানসিক পরিশ্রমে চুলকানি, কাটা ফোটার ন্যায় অনুভূতি, কনকনানি প্রভৃতি উপসর্গ দেখা দেয় এবং শারীরিক পরিশ্রমে উহার উপশম হয়! এগারিকাসের সমস্ত লক্ষণ, বিশেষতঃ মেরুমজ্জা সংক্রান্ত লক্ষণগুলি স্ত্রী-সঙ্গমের পর বৃদ্ধিপ্রাপ্ত হয়। এইজন্য স্নায়বিক প্রকৃতি বিবাহিতা স্ত্রীলোকগণের স্বামী সহবাসের পর আবির্ভূত বিবিধ লক্ষণ, যথা স্বামী সহবাসের পর হিষ্টিরিয়াজনিত মূৰ্হারোগে ইহা উপযোগী। ইহার মানসিক লক্ষণগুলি তোমরা যেরূপ আশা করিতেছ ঠিক সেইরূপই হয়। ইহাতে অত্যন্ত পরিবর্তনশীলতা, কোপনতা, এবং অতিরিক্ত মানসিক পরিশ্রম অথবা দীর্ঘকাল পড়াশুনা করিবার পর অবসাদ ও অন্যান্য উপসর্গসমূহ দেখা দেয়। মনে হয় যেন, মস্তিষ্কটি ধীরে ধীরে বাড়িতেছে। শিশুদের কথা কহিতে এবং হাঁটিতে দেরী হয়। এইরূপে ইহা ‘নেট্টাম মিউর’ যাহাতে “বিলম্বে কথা কহিতে শিখা এবং ক্যাল্কেরিয়া কাৰ্ব্ব যাহাতে বিলম্বে হাঁটিতে শিখা” লক্ষণ আছে, ঔষধদ্বয়ের প্রকৃতি সম্মিলিত হইতেছে। ক্যাল্কেরিয়া কাৰ্ব্ব’ দেখা যায় যে লক্ষণটি আসে হাড়ের দুর্বলতা হইতে। এগারিকাসে উহা ধীরে ধীরে বর্ধনশীল মনের জন্য হয়। পেশীর নৰ্ত্তনযুক্ত ও শীঘ্ৰ মূর্চ্ছা যায়—এরূপ শিশু; যৌবনোদ্গমের পূর্বে স্নায়বিকা বালিকা, যাহারা তিরস্কৃত হইলে এবং উত্তেজনা ও মানসিক আবেগের ফলে মূর্চ্ছা যায়, যাহাদের মানসিক বিকাশে বিলম্ব হয়। যে-সকল শিশুরা মনে রাখিতে পারে না, ভুল করে এবং ধীরে ধীরে শিক্ষা করে, তাহারা। যে-সকল স্নায়বিক ব্যক্তির হাতে লেখা কাগজ পড়িতে গেলে লেখায় ও বানানে ভুল করিয়াছে দেখিতে পাওয়া যায়, তাহারা। যাহাদের মনের এরূপ অবস্থা যে, ভাবগুলি দ্রুত গ্রহণ করিতে পারে না, ভুল শব্দগুলি বালকদের খেলিবার দূরবীনের (Kaleidoscope) ন্যায় নানা বর্ণে ভাসিতে থাকে। যখন আমরা পাঠ্যপুস্তক পড়ি “মনোজগতের সব কিছুই যেন পক্ষাঘাতগ্রস্ত” তখন আমাদের তলাইয়া বুঝিয়া পড়া চাই। সমগ্র মন এবং চৈতন্য পক্ষাঘাতগ্রস্ত মনে হয়, রোগী অলস, নির্বোধ এবং সময়ে সময়ে প্রলাপযুক্ত হয়; তাহার মানসিক বিশৃঙ্খলা প্রলাপের এতই অনুরূপ হয় যে, উহা মত্ততার বিসদৃশ মনে হয় না। মৃদু হইতে উৎপন্ন প্রলাপের সদৃশ প্রলাপ। সে আবার নির্বুদ্ধি হইয়া পড়ে, মূখ ও নির্বোধের ন্যায় কথা বলে, অসময়ে গান করে ও শিস দেয়, কবিতা রচনা করে, ভবিষ্যদ্বাণী করে; অথবা তাহার একটি বিপরীত অবস্থা দেখা দেয়;—সে তাহার চারিদিকের ব্যাপার সম্বন্ধে উদাসীন হইয়া পড়ে। যে-লোক ধীর ও শান্ত ছিল, সেই স্বেচ্ছাচারী, একগুঁয়ে ও আত্মম্ভরী হইয়া উঠে। দেহের পেশীসমূহের সঞ্চালনে সামঞ্জস্য বিধান কষ্টকর হয়। মস্তিষ্ক ও মেরুমজ্জার অসামঞ্জস্য। হাতের ও হাতের আঙ্গুলগুলির বিশৃঙ্খল গতি। জিনিষ ধরিতে যাইয়া উহা ফেলিয়া দেয়। জিনিষ ধরিতে গেলে আঙ্গুলগুলি আক্ষেপিক ভাবে খুলিয়া যায়। রান্নাঘরের পরিচারিকার যখন এই উপসর্গ থাকে যে, সে ক্রমাগত থালা ফেলিয়া ভাঙ্গে, তখন অনেক সময়েই তুমি তাহাকে এগারিকাস বা এপিস’ দ্বারা আরোগ্য করিতে পারে। কিন্তু এই দুইটি ঔষধের প্রকৃতি বিপরীত। এগারিকাসের রোগী আগুনের কাছে থাকিতে চায়, আর এপিসের রোগী রান্নাঘরের বাহিরে আসিতে চায়। রোগীর অকুশলতা ও বিশৃঙ্খলভাবে প্রভৃতি একসঙ্গে শারীরিক ও মানসিক প্রত্যেক প্রকারের পরিবর্তনই রোগী ও ডাক্তারের পক্ষে লক্ষণীয়। সময়ে সময়ে রোগী নির্বোধ, অকুশলতা ও বিশৃঙ্খল ব্যবহার করিবে, কিন্তু অন্য সময়ে সেই চটপটে এবং কবিভাবযুক্ত হইয়া উঠিবে, হয়ত, বিশেষতঃ রাত্রিকালে, বিনা আয়াসে কবিতা আবৃত্তি করিয়া যাইবে। প্রাতঃকালে সে ক্লান্ত ও অলস বোধ করিবে এবং ঐ ভাব তাহার মধ্যাহ্ন পর্যন্ত থাকিয়া যাইতে পারে। তাহার মানসিক লক্ষণগুলি সকালের দিকে বাড়ে এবং সন্ধ্যার দিকে উপশম প্রাপ্ত হয়। নিদ্রাকালে সৰ্ব্বপ্রকার উৎক্ষেপ ও পেশীসঙ্কোচন থামিয়া যায়। খোলা বাতাসে বেড়াইবার সময় তাহার মাথা ঘুরে। সবসময়েই তাহার শীত করে। কোন কাজ করিতে গেলে, সে ঠিক বিপরীতটিই করিয়া বসে। শিরোঘূর্ণন ও মনের গোলযোগ মিশিয়া থাকে। মেরুদন্ডের লক্ষণসমূহ কম্পন ও উৎক্ষেপের সহিত সম্বন্ধযুক্ত থাকাই এই ঔষধের শিরঃপীড়ার বিশিষ্টতা। মেরুদন্ড রোগগ্রস্তের শিরঃপীড়া। যেন তীক্ষ্ন বরফ খন্ড কিংবা যেন সূঁচ মাথায় ফুটিতেছে—এরূপ বেদনা। সাধারণতঃ এই রূপই হয়, কিন্তু এরূপ যন্ত্রনা অন্যান্য অঙ্গেও দেখা যাইতে পারে। মাথায় পেরেক পোতার ন্যায় যন্ত্রণা। প্রাতঃকালে কিছু রক্তপাত হইতে পারে, ঐ রক্ত ঘন ও কাল এবং কদাচিৎ ফোঁটা ফোঁটা করিয়া পড়ে। মাথায় শীতলতাবোধ। মস্তক-ত্বকে বহু প্রকার অদ্ভুত অনুভূতি থাকে—চুলকাইবার বা আঁচড়াইবার পর বরফের ন্যায় শীতলতা বোধ হয়। ঐ অনুভূতি শরীরের সর্বত্র প্রধাবিত হয়। চুলকানি থাকিলেও কোন প্রকার উদ্ভেদ দেখা দেয় না, সে না চুলকাইয়া থাকিতে পারে না এবং চুলকানোর পর ঐ স্থানে বরফের ন্যায় শীতলতা অথবা যেন ঐ স্থানে বায়ু বহিতেছে এরূপ অনুভূত হয়। কোরিয়া রোগগ্রস্তের ন্যায় মাথাটি অবিরত নড়িতে থাকে। মস্তক-ত্বকে চুলকানি বিশেষভাবে প্রাতে নিদ্রাভঙ্গের পর দেখা দেয়। আবার, আমরা দেখি যে সাধারণভাবে বৃদ্ধিও প্রাতঃকালে। মস্তক ত্বকে স্পষ্ট ব্রণাদি থাকিতে পারে। মামড়ী সংযুক্ত পামা। চক্ষুর উৎক্ষেপ ও স্পন্দন। এগারিকাসের চক্ষুতে তুমি ইহা লক্ষ্য করিতে পারিবে,—রোগী যখন তোমার দিকে চাহিবে তখন দেখিবে যে, তাহার চক্ষুদ্বয় ঘড়ির দোলকের ন্যায় নড়িতেছে, উহারা একবার পিছনে ও একবার সামনের দিকে আসিতেছে এবং রোগী তোমার দিকে দৃষ্টি নিবদ্ধ করিতে চেষ্টা করিলেও চক্ষুদ্বয় বিকম্পিত হইতেছে। এই ভাব কেবলমাত্র নিদ্রাকালেই. থামিয়া থাকে, সমস্ত গতিই নিদ্রাকালে থামিয়া যায়। সাইকুটা’, আর্সেনিক’, ‘সালফার, ‘পালসেটিলা’ প্রভৃতি আরও কয়েকটি ঔষধ এইরূপ চক্ষু-লক্ষণ আরোগ্য করিয়াছে, কিন্তু এগারিকাস ইহা উৎপন্ন করে এবং আরোগ্য করে। বর্ণ ও দৃষ্টি সম্বন্ধে ধারণাযোগ্য প্রত্যেক প্রকার বিভ্রান্তিই দেখিতে পাওয়া যায়। চক্ষুর সম্মুখস্থ আলোটি দপদপ করে, তাহার পড়িতে কষ্ট হয়। দৃষ্ট বস্তু যেখানে আছে বোধ হয়, বাস্তবিক সেইখানে থাকে না। চক্ষুর সম্মুখে কাল কাল মাছির মত দেখে, কাল কাল বিন্দু দেখে, একটি বস্তু দুইটি দেখে, চক্ষুর সম্মুখে মাছির মত উড়িয়া যাইতে দেখে। চক্ষুর পৈশিক দুর্বলতা। চক্ষু সঞ্চালনের অনিয়মিততা, চক্ষুতারকা হয় প্রসারিত নচেৎ সঙ্কুচিত । চক্ষুর সম্মুখে কুয়াসা বা মাকড়সার জালের মত দেখে। চক্ষু আক্ষেপিক ভাবে ঝাঁকি দিয়া উঠে, নাচিয়া উঠে। চক্ষুর উৎক্ষেপ ও স্পন্দন একটি অতি পরিস্ফুট লক্ষণ; তৎসহ চক্ষুর চারিদিকে কোরিয়া রোগীর ন্যায় সঞ্চালন এবং চক্ষুর বর্ণ ও আকৃতি সম্বন্ধে বিভ্রান্তি থাকে। কর্ণদ্বয়ের লালবর্ণ, জ্বালা এবং চুলকানি, যেন উহারা তুষারাহত হইয়াছে। শীতস্ফোটের ন্যায় অনুভূতি, ঐরূপ দেহের সর্বত্র দেখা যায়, এই ঔষধে সাধারণতঃ যেরূপ দেখা যায়, সেইরূপ চুলকানি ও ঝিনঝিনি। শ্রবণশক্তির ক্ষীণতা। বধিরতা। কখনও বা শ্রবণশক্তির তীক্ষ্ণতা। প্রাতঃকালে সে কথা বলে না, নড়ে চড়ে না, বোকার মত এবং ক্লান্ত থাকে, কিন্তু সন্ধ্যা আসিলেই সে স্ফুর্তিযুক্ত হয়, বেশ গরম হইয়া উঠে, উত্তেজিত হয়, কবিত্বযুক্ত এবং ভবিষ্যদ্বক্তার ভাব বিশিষ্ট হয়; গভীর রাত্রি পর্যন্ত বসিয়া থাকিতে চায় এবং ক্রীড়ামত্ত থাকিতে ইচ্ছা করে। নাসাপথে রক্তস্রাব; নাসিকা হইতে প্রচুর দুর্গন্ধ স্রাব। এগারিকাস এত গভীরক্রিয় ঔষধ যে যক্ষ্মাসম্ভব ধাতুতেও শুষ্কতা ও মামড়ী সংযুক্ত অত্যন্ত পুরাতন দুঃসাধ্য সর্দিও আরোগ্য করিতে পারে। ইহা প্রারম্ভিক অবস্থায় বহু যক্ষ্মারোগীকে আরোগ্য করিয়াছে। ইহা পুরাতন কাশি ও সর্দি আরোগ্য করে। নাসিকাটি বরফাহতের ন্যায় লালবর্ণ। পুরাতন মাতালদের লাল ডগাযুক্ত নাসিকায় ইহা লিডাম’ ও ‘ল্যাকেসিসের সমগুণ। আমরা ইতিপূর্বে যাহা দেখিয়াছি, তাহা হইতে মুখের পেশীসমূহের স্পন্দন, তুষারাহতের ন্যায় চুলকানি, লালবর্ণ এবং জ্বালা, পক্ষাঘাতিক দুর্বলতা প্রভৃতি আশা করিতে পারি, কারণ এইগুলি সাধারণ লক্ষণ; এবং আমাদের আশামত, এইগুলিকে পাঠ্য পুস্তকে দেখিতে পাই। কোরিয়া রোগ সদৃশ আক্ষেপ। জড়বুদ্ধির ন্যায় ব্যবহার। এইবার লক্ষ্য কর কতকগুলি রোগী যখন তাহাদের নিজ নিজ ব্যবসায় সংক্রান্ত কাৰ্য্যগুলি করিতে থাকে, তখন তাহারা বেশ চটপটে থাকে, কিন্তু যদি তুমি তাহাদের সম্মুখে একটি নতুন বিষয় উপস্থাপিত কর,—এমন কিছু যাহা তাহাদের দৈনন্দিন কার্যের মধ্যে পড়ে না, তাহা হইলে তাহারা সম্পূর্ণ বোকা বনিয়া যায়। এই অবস্থাটি বিশেষ ভাবে সকাল বেলাই দেখা যায়। প্রাতঃকালে সে নতুন কিছুই গ্রহণ করিতে পারে কিন্তু সন্ধ্যাকালে তাহার নতুন ভাব বোধগম্য হয় এবং চা, কফি, মদ্য প্রভৃতি পানের ফলে যেরূপ দেখা যায়, সেইরূপ প্রফুল্লতার মধ্যেও থাকে। এই ঔষধটি সুরাজাতীয় পানীয়ের একটি প্রবল প্রতিবিষ। এই ঔষধ ও ‘জিঙ্কাম’ উভয়েই মেরুদন্ড আক্রান্ত হয় এবং উভয়েই উত্তেজক দ্রব্যে বৃদ্ধিলক্ষণ আছে। এগারিকাস বহু মৃগীরোগসুলভ আক্ষেপ এবং আরও সচারাচর ফেনাযুক্ত মুখ, পশ্চাদ্দিকে আকৃষ্টতা, এবং মুখের পেশীর স্পন্দনযুক্ত হিষ্টিরিয়া সংযুক্ত বিশেষ প্রকারের মৃগীরোগের আক্ষেপ আরোগ্য করিয়াছে। এগারিকাস রোগীর ক্ষণিক রোগাক্রমণ আছে; তাহার মুখের একটি ক্ষুদ্র পেশী বা কোন পেশীর কয়েকটি তন্তু কয়েক মুহূর্তের জন্য কাপে, তারপর উহা থামিয়া যায় এবং মুখের অপর পার্শ্বে অনুরূপ অবস্থা দেখা যায়। একটি চোখের পাতা কাপিবে, তারপর আর এক প্রস্থ তন্তু কাঁপিবে; কখন কখন ইহা এতই বিরক্তিকর হয় যে, রোগীকে প্রায় ক্ষিপ্ত করিয়া তোলে। এগারিকাসের আর নাক্স ভমিকার’ও বটে, অবস্থা এইরূপ হয়। দাঁতগুলি খুব লম্বা বোধ হয় এবং স্পর্শদ্বেষ বিশিষ্ট হয়। জিহ্বা কাঁপে, স্পন্দিত হয়, ঝুঁকি দিয়া উঠে এবং তাহাতে কথা বিশৃঙখল হয়, রোগী জোর দিয়া উচ্চারণ করে। জিহ্বা শুষ্ক ও কম্পমান। সে কষ্টে কথা বলিতে শিখে। জিহ্বার আক্ষেপের জন্য কথা অস্পষ্টভাবে উচ্চারিত হয়। জিহ্বার গতিরোধক রজ্জুতে পচা ক্ষত জন্মে, উহাতে ক্ষয়িয়া যায়। জিহ্বার ক্ষতবৎ বেদনা। মুখের তালুতে পারদজনিত ক্ষুদ্র ক্ষুদ্র জাড়িক্ষত। স্তন্যপায়ী শিশুদের মুখক্ষতের ন্যায় ছোট ছোট সাদা ফোস্কা। পুরাতন গলক্ষত। তালুমূলগ্রন্থির কঠিনতা। জ্বালাকর তৃষ্ণা; রাক্ষুসে ক্ষুধা। পাকস্থলিতে ক্ষুধা লাগার ন্যায় খামচান ব্যথা, কিন্তু খাইতে ইচ্ছা থাকে না। বাতকর্ম্ম, কষ্টদায়ক উদার, অত্যন্ত পেট ফাঁপা, পেট ডাকা, পেটের মধ্যে গড়গড় করা; দুর্গন্ধ অধঃবায়ু, পেটের মধ্যে হুড়ুম করিয়া শব্দ। সবকিছুই গাঁজিয়া উঠে, উচ্চশব্দে গড়গড় ও কলকল করে খামচানর ন্যায় ব্যথা হয়। অতি দুর্গন্ধ নিঃস্রাব। টাইফয়েড জ্বরের মধ্যে পেট ফাঁপা দুষ্ট প্রকৃতির টাইফয়েড, পেশীসমূহের কম্পন ও উৎক্ষেপ, পক্ষঘাতিক দুর্বলতা, শীর্ণতা, মানসিক লক্ষণসমূহ। প্রাতঃকালীন উদরাময়; সরলান্ত্রে জ্বালাসহ প্রচুর অধঃবায়ু (এলো’), নরম মল, অত্যন্ত কোথানি; প্রবল মলবেগ, মলত্যাগের পূর্বে সময়ে ও পরে অনৈচ্ছিক কোথানি। মনে হয় যে, মলত্যাগের পরেও সরলান্ত্রটি ফাটিয়া যাইবে (মার্ক’ এবং সালফার’)। আকস্মিক তীব্র যন্ত্রণা, আদৌ দেরী করিতে পারে না। কষ্টকর ফাটিয়া যাওয়ার ন্যায় অনুভূতি। মলত্যাগের পূর্বে উদরে কর্ত্তনবৎ এবং খামচানবৎ বেদনা, প্রবল কোথানি, সরলান্ত্রে যন্ত্রণাদায়ক রোগ। মলত্যাগের সময় শূলবৎ বেদনা এবং অধঃবায়ু নিঃসরণ এবং মলদ্বারে জ্বালা, ক্ষততাবোধ, চিড়িকমারা ও কাটিয়া ফেলার ন্যায় ব্যথা, তৎসহ ঘৰ্ম্ম, এবং মলত্যাগের পরেও দীর্ঘকালস্থায়ী কোমর হইতে পা পর্যন্ত বেদনা। মলত্যাগের পর, শিরঃপীড়ার উপশম, গুহ্যদ্বারে দংশনবৎ ব্যথা, কুক্ষিদেশে কামড়ানি, উদরস্ফীতি, উদরে এবং নাভির চারিদিকে ভারবোধ, বক্ষে যাতনা। মলত্যাগের পর কোথানি কথাটি বিশেষ ভাবে মনে রাখিবে। রোগীর কোষ্ঠবদ্ধতা এবং সরলান্ত্রের পক্ষাঘাতবৎ অনুভূতি থাকিতে পারে; মল কঠিন, যেন মলত্যাগের উপরই জীবন মরণ নির্ভর করিতেছে—এরূপ কোথানি, কিন্তু তথাপি মল বাহির হয়। পেশীসমূহের উৎক্ষেপ ও মেরুদন্ডে জ্বালাসহ নিম্নাঙ্গের পক্ষাঘাতের প্রাথমিক অবস্থা। এক একটি রোগী কোথানি নিষ্ফল বলিয়া ছাড়িয়া দিবার পর অনিচ্ছায় মলত্যাগ করে। এই লক্ষণ কেবল মাত্র ‘আর্জেন্টাম নাইট্রিকামে’ (মল ও মূত্রে) আছে জানা ছিল। মলপ্রবৃত্তিও প্রবল। মূত্র গড়াইয়া পড়ে। এই ঔষধের একটি বিশেষ লক্ষণ যে, মূত্রত্যাগকালে মূত্র ঠান্ডা বোধ হয়; মূত্র যখন গড়াইয়া পড়িতে থাকে তখন সে মূত্ৰনলীর ভিতর ঠান্ডা মূত্রের ফোঁটাগুলি গুণিতে পারে। ““মূত্র ক্ষীণ ধারায় অথবা ফোঁটা ফোঁটা করিয়া পড়ে, ধারার বেগ বৃদ্ধি করিতে চাপ দিতে হয়।” “প্রস্রাব জলের ন্যায় পরিষ্কার, লেবুর বর্ণ, উজ্জ্বল হলদে, গাঢ় হলদে এবং গরম; লাল, পশমের শুয়ার মত অথবা গুঁড়া গুঁড়া তলানি বিশিষ্ট, পূর্বাহ্নে জলবৎ, অপরাহ্নে লাল বা সাদা (ফসফেট অব ম্যাগনেশিয়া) তলানি বিশিষ্ট, দুধ বা ঘোলের ন্যায়, উপরিভাগে ইরিডিয়ামের ন্যায় বহুবর্ণ।” মূত্রে ফসফেট; দুধের মত মূত্র; মূত্রের উপরিভাগে তৈলবৎ, ইরিডিয়ামের ন্যায় বহুবর্ণ, মূত্রের উপর পেট্রোলিয়ামের ন্যায় চৰ্ব্বিবৎ সর। বাত, গেঁটেবাত ও হিষ্টিরিয়াগ্রস্ত ব্যক্তির স্বল্পমূত্র। শীতল, দুৰ্ব্বল, পান্ডুর, যক্ষ্মারোগের উপক্রম বিশিষ্ট লোক। মূত্রের পরিমাণ কম হয় এবং এক প্রকার শিরঃপীড়া দেখা দেয়। কয়েকদিন কাটিয়া যায় এবং কোষ্ঠবদ্ধতা চলিতে থাকে, মলত্যাগের পর শিরঃপীড়ার শান্তি হয়। ফ্লরিক এসিডে’ও যদি মূত্রবেগ চাপিয়া রাখা যায় তাহা হইলে একপ্রকার শিরঃপীড়া উপস্থিত হয়। ইহাতে রোগান্তর প্রাপ্তি ঘটিয়া থাকে। এক দিনেই দুগ্ধ বন্ধ হইয়া যায়, কিন্তু মস্তকে অথবা মেরুদন্ডে রক্তসঞ্চয় উপস্থিত হয়। রোগের স্থান পরিবর্তন,—বিশেষত দুগ্ধ বন্ধ হইয়া অন্য উপসর্গের আগমন। জননযন্ত্র শীতল ও সঙ্কুচিত। পুরুষ ও স্ত্রীলোকের জননযন্ত্র সম্বন্ধীয় লক্ষণ-সমূহের তারতম্য পরীক্ষা করিয়া দেখা যায় যে, স্ত্রীলোকের উপর ঔষধটি বিশেষভাবে পরীক্ষিত হয় নাই, কিন্তু পুরুষদিগের ক্ষেত্রে এমন অনেক লক্ষণ আছে, যাহাদের সদৃশ স্ত্রীলোকদিগের মধ্যেও দেখা যাইতে পারে। পুরুষদিগের সঙ্গমের পর লক্ষণগুলির বৃদ্ধি হয়, ঠিক ঐরূপ স্ত্রীলোকদিগেরও দেখা যায়। স্ত্রীলোকদিগের লক্ষণ—লিঙ্গের উত্তেজনা, ব্যভিচার প্রভৃতির পর মূর্চ্ছা এবং পুরুষদিগের ক্ষেত্রে উহা দুৰ্বলতা। কম্পন, পেশী উৎক্ষেপণ অথবা এগারিকাসের অন্য যে-কোন লক্ষণ সঙ্গমের পর বৃদ্ধি পাইতে পারে, কারণ জননযন্ত্র সংক্রান্ত কাৰ্য্যগুলি মেরুমজ্জার সহিত সম্বন্ধযুক্ত। যাহারা মেরুদন্ডের রোগগ্রস্ত, তাহাদের এই কার্য্যের পর নানা উপসর্গ দেখা দেয়। পুরুষদিগের সঙ্গমের সময় যখন শুক্র নির্গত হয়, তখন উহা উত্তপ্ত অথবা হাজাকর হওয়ায়, মূত্ৰনলীতে জ্বালা উপস্থিত হয়। সুতরাং উহা কেবলমাত্র পুরুষদিগের লক্ষণ। রেতঃপাতকালে প্রষ্টেট গ্রন্থিতে জ্বালা। সঙ্গমের পূৰ্ব্বে ও সময়ে ভয়ানক কামোন্মাদনা, কিন্তু রেতঃনির্গমনকালে, উত্তেজনার অভাব এবং ধীর ও আনন্দহীন নির্গমন। মেরুদন্ডের দুর্বলতা বিশিষ্ট ও স্নায়বিক ব্যক্তিগণের, যাহাদের সর্বাঙ্গে সড়সড়ানি ও পিঁপড়া হাঁটার ন্যায় অনুভূতি থাকে,—তাহাদের এইরূপ ঘটিতে দেখা যায়। এই ঔষধটি মূত্ৰনলী হইতে পুরাতন  শ্লেষ্মাস্রাব পুরাতন গণোরিয়া ও লালামেহ রোগ, সৰ্ব্বপ্রকার বাহ্যিক চিকিৎসার পরেও আরোগ্য করিয়া থাকে। লিঙ্গটি শিথিল ও সঙ্কুচিত, অন্ডকোষদ্বয় অত্যন্ত যন্ত্রণাদায়ক ভাবে আকৃষ্ট। পুরাতন লাল মেহস্রাবে মূত্রনলীতে ক্রমাগত চুলকানি ও সড়সড়ানি থাকে এবং স্রাবের শেষ বিন্দুটি রহিয়া যায় ও বহুক্ষণ ধরিয়া স্রাব নির্গত হয়। অন্যান্য অনেক ঔষধ অপেক্ষা এরূপ ক্ষেত্রের জন্য দুইটি ঔষধ উৎকৃষ্টতর, তাহারা পেট্রোলিয়াম ও এগারিকাস। বাঁধা নিয়মের চিকিৎসকগণ, স্ত্রীলোকগণের নীচের দিকে ঠেলামারা বেদনার জন্য ‘পালস’, ‘সিপিয়া ইত্যাদির কথা চিন্তা করেন, কিন্তু মেরুদন্ডের উপদাহ বিশিষ্ট স্ত্রীলোকগণের নীচের দিকে ঠেলামারা বেদনায় যদি মনে হয় যে, যন্ত্রটি বাহির হইয়া পড়িবে তাহা হইলে এই ঔষধটিই সর্বোৎকৃষ্ট। ঐরূপ ক্ষীণকায়া, স্নায়বিক, অস্থির প্রকৃতি স্ত্রীলোকদের সড়সড় করা ও পিঁপড়া হাঁটার ন্যায় অনুভূতি থাকিলে এগারিকাস অবশ্য প্রযোজ্য। ঋতুকালে দন্তবেদনা, শিরঃপীড়া ইত্যাদি। ঋতুকালে সমস্ত সাধারণ লক্ষণের বৃদ্ধি, কিন্তু ঋতুর পূর্বে বা পরে তত অধিক নয়। ঋতু বন্ধ হইবার ঠিক পরেই হৃৎলক্ষণের বৃদ্ধি এবং জরায়ুভ্রংশ। অত্যন্ত প্রচুর, কালচে, রক্তাক্ত, হাজাকর, জননাঙ্গে ক্ষত উৎপাদনকারী প্রদরস্রাব। ফুরিক এসিডে’র সহিত তুলনাকালে এই ঔষধটির উল্লেখ করা হইয়াছে। উভয়ের মধ্যে অনেক বিষয়ে বৌসাদৃশ্য আছে। প্রদরস্রাবে উভয়েই সমগুণস্রাবটি প্রচুর এবং হাজাকর, এত হাজাকর যে জননাঙ্গের চারিদিকের স্থানগুলিকে ক্ষতবিশিষ্ট ও প্রদাহিত করিয়া তুলে এবং রোগিণী হাটিতে পারেন না। ফুরিক এসিডে’ স্নায়বিক লক্ষণের সহিত প্রস্রাবত্যাগে শিরঃপীড়ার উপশম, অথবা প্রস্রাব চাপিয়া রাখিলে শিরঃপীড়ার আক্রমণ এবং তৎসহ প্রচুর জ্বালাকর, হাজাজনক প্রদরস্রাব থাকে। বক্ষের উপদ্রবে এগারিকাস একটি বড় ঔষধ, যদিও উহার বিষয় খুব কমই চিন্তা করা হয়। ক্ষয়কাশ বলিয়া মনে হইয়াছিল, এরূপ রোগ ইহা দ্বারা আরোগ্য হইয়াছে। বুকের সর্দিজ অবস্থা, তৎসহ নিশা-ঘৰ্ম্ম এবং স্নায়বিক লক্ষণের ইতিহাস। থাকিয়া থাকিয়া কাশির তীব্র আক্রমণ, হাঁচিতে উহার পরিসমাপ্তি। আক্ষেপিক কাশি, তৎসহ সন্ধ্যার দিকে ঘর্ম, দ্রুতনাড়ী, পুঁজের মত গয়ের, প্রাতঃকালে ও চিৎ হইয়া শয়নে বৃদ্ধি। ইহার সহিত পূৰ্ব্ববর্ণিত এগারিকাসের লক্ষণগুলি যোগ দাও;

AMANITA or AGARICUS MUSCARIUS [Agar] + Fly Fungus. Nat order, Fungi. Introduction One of the most poisonous fungi known as Agaricus muscarius, abused by Asiatic tribes of savages in the form of a real intoxicating drink, the effects of which have been reported by many travelers. The usual name of “Agaricus” given by Linnee is too vague. Persoon and Fries have split this Linnean genus into seven families, and the numerous species received 44 different generic names, of which Amanita is one. Before long we may have a few remedies introduced on account of their essential difference in effect. First proved by Schreter and E.Stapf, and published by the latter in 1828. Hahnemann and his students’ proving was published in the Archives, 1830, with some toxic symptoms. In 1831 the best proving of all, that of Apelt, was published in connection with many reliable provings on the sick, and some valuable cured symptoms. In the same year Hartlaub published in the third volume of his Materia Medica two provings by very trustworthy men, Drs.Woost and Seidel, with some of the observations by travelers in Asia. In 1835 Hahnemann incorporated it in the second edition of his Chronic Diseases as one of the antipsorics, adopting only 715 symptoms. In 1859 in Clotar Muller’s Quarterly, vol.x., p.217 to 260, a so- called critical review was made; it is enough to say that nearly every symptom there condemned to be stricken out has been confirmed by the Vienna provings published since; in the list of toxic symptoms, given with the great pretension, one of the main sources was overlooked, the report of Langsdorf (therefore not in Allen), and 15 symptoms of it belong to an entirely different Agaricus. In 1869, Zlatarowich published the provings of the Vienna Society, undertaken with great zeal and courage. We may say Amanita has suffered an overproving similar to what our Thuja and Lycopodium had to undergo. An addition has been made of Th. Ruckert’s essay, comparing the symptoms of this remedy with the symptoms of incipient tuberculosis; they are marked. The carefully dried cap (pileus) is triturated in the regular way.

(cerebral excitement, but more in chorea); Calc-c. (alcoholism; icy cold feeling on head); Cann-i. (alcoholism; extravagant fancies); Cic. (spasms of eyes); Codein (eyelids twitching, etc.); Coffea (ecstasy); Hyos.

Muscarine is very similar to Pilocarpine (jaborandi) since both cause arrest of heart’s action; profuse sweat; salivation, lachrymation; contracted pupils, etc. Muscarine acts more on lachrymal glands, less on sweat and salivary glands; Pilocarpine causes more urging to urinate. Muscarine, given internally, contracts pupil more than Pilocarpine; used topically, only the former dilates the pupil. Gels. is here similar to Muscarine. Follow well: Bell., Calc-c., Merc., Opium, Puls., Rhus-t. and Sil. Acted well after Dulc., Phos-ac., Puls., and Cupr had failed. Chronic diarrhoea. Cured where Bell., Stram. and Hyos. failed. Clonic spasms of eyes.

4.0 Agar : Agaricus Muscarius, Muscaria   CASE OF SPASMODIC AFFECTIONS OF SPINE   Volume Jan-Mar 1995, Volume No4, Issue 1 Author Dr. Prakash Shinde Subject Cases Remedy Agar By Dr. Prakash Shinde A farmer, male, aged 28 years married came on 20/7/93 with the complaints of: Stiffness in back, right upper extremity and left lower extremity. Intermittent twitching at cervical region. Pain at spine aggravated lying on back, touch and relief by movement. Sometimes vertigo if he moves in bright sunlight. Vague stitching pains at liver and spleen. Occasional burning in stomach. Sleep disturbed with frequent waking. All above symptoms were aggravated in cold air and on eating. Burning, itching, redness over skin when exposed to cold air. Built slim, thin. Has been examined by a physician and psychiatrist in the past. The above symptoms started when he was about 15 years of age and progressed gradually to this disabled state. Habits Occasional alcohol since last 3 years to give relief to his sufferings. However he agrees that the condition has worsened since he has started consuming alcohol. Cigarettes- About 4 to 5 per day. While further questioning him about his symptoms he told me that he had a peculiar habit of looking for different types of sharp weapons wherever he went. He had revengeful plans in his mind. Family History and family background: – Father died (alcoholic) before his birth. He has a mother, uncle, aunt, all well but very much worried about his ill health. His visits to weaponry shops for enquiry of sharp weapons was much disturbing to them with the thought that he would one day commit suicide so a psychiatrist was approached but the efforts were in vain. This outstanding fascination towards sharp weapons is taken as a Key to unlock his health status & when I referred Kents repertory I was glad to see one rubric Plans revengeful page 69 Kent having solitary drug, Agaricus M. Even other symptoms were matching with drug picture of Agar mus. 20/07/93 Agaricus 200 BD x 7 days 27/07/93 No improvement Agaricus 1M, 1 dose. 03/08/93 No improvement Agar 50M, 1 dose. 10/08/93 No improvement Agar CM, 1 dose. 20/08/93 No improvement Agar 1M, 1BD x 5 days 27/08/93 Cervical twitching reduced. Pain between scapulae reduced to 10% Complaints reduced after 10 days. 07/07/93 Status quo, Agar 1M BD x 7 days. 14/09/93 Complaints 20% improvement. No medicine. 30/09/93 Status quo, Agar 1M BD x 10 days. 10/10/93 Patient feeling better. His attraction towards weapons had reduced, No medicine. 20/10/93 Improvement, No medicine 05/11/93 Status quo Agar 50 M OD x 5 days. 15/11/93 Feels better, Agar CM 1 dose. 15/12/93 80% relief, No medicine. Since then the patient has not returned till today at my consultation for any complaint. The patient had no family problems except the death of his father before his birth and that he was brought up in a poor farmer class. There was no history of rivalry regarding land and property as he was the only son. No H/o any quarrels in the past or any annoying circumstances; still his outstanding attraction towards weapons, that too sharp weapons and his revengeful plans in spite of his ill health gave a picture of super active mind withthoughts of violence with very bad physique was the key to his drug picture. Were his revengeful thoughts anything to do with his past life? Editors comments: – Again one strong mental symptom taken as the essence of this mans pathology has helped this patient considerably. A DAYS WORK [Days Work] Book HEAL THYSELF (The Homoeopathic World) A Popular Journal of Medical, Dietetic, Social and Sanitary Science By J Ellis Barker. Volume 1933 Oct Vol LXVIII No 814 Author Pierre Schmidt. Subject Cases Remedy Bell / Anthr / Nat-s / Puls / Phos / Agar/ Cupr / Nux-v / Ars / Sulph / Med / Syph / Sil. By DR. PIERRE SCHMIDT. Geneva. [Dr. Schmidts article will be of particular interest to readers because he is one of the leading high potency men. He uses almost exclusively high and the very highest potencies in very infrequent doses, following the examples of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, whose favourite potency was the 30th.– J.E.B.]. I WOULD warn the readers of this article not to jump to the conclusion that the remedy which I have successfully employed for some disease or other can safely be used in the hope of success in every case of the same disease. Diseases should be treated not in accordance with their names, but in accordance with the totality of symptoms of the patient. In giving the briefest summary of days work, I wish merely to show the all- sufficiency of the homoeopathic law and the fact that interesting and valuable results may be obtained by acting in accordance with that law. I would mention that Hahnemann published only a very few cures of his own because he wished to prevent his followers from acting mechanically and prescribing for the names of diseases instead of for the totality of symptoms, irrespective of the official designation of the complaint treated. ACUTE COLIC ORIGINATING IN THE LIVER– Cured by three doses of Belladonna 200th potency in a few hours. WHITLOW OF THE FINGER. — Very painful, was treated with a dose of Anthracinum 200th potency, and then with Hepar sulphuris 1000th, and is rapidly getting well. ASTHMA.– A clergyman who had suffered for several years from this disease was rapidly improved with Natrum sulphuricum in doses which were gradually raised from the 1,000th potency to 500,000th potency. ANAEMIA OF PRE-TUBERCULOUS CHARACTER.– A young girl, who suffered from this complaint, combined with very painful menstruation, was greatly relieved with Pulsatilla in the 10,000th potency. APOPLEXY.– A man of 50 had had two apoplectic strokes followed by complete paralysis of the left side. His condition was greatly improved and he was enabled to walk almost normally and to speak, with a few doses of Phosphorus, one in the 1,000th potency, followed by a dose in the 10,000th potency and one in the 50,000th potency with an interval of from five to seven weeks between each dose. During eleven months there has been no relapse. There were two crises which occurred with an interval of three weeks.

  1. VITUS DANCE.– This disease in a backward girl of 15 years who had not yet menstruated and had a very thick neck, was greatly improved with the help of Agaricus followed by Cuprum and then by Calcarea silicata, all in high dilutions.

PERIODIC HEADACHES.– A lady of 45 with this trouble is doing well with Nux vomica 10,000th and higher. ECZEMA ALL OVER THE BODY AND ACUTE ARTHRITIS.– A lady in this condition, 44 years old, is doing well, having received a dose of Arsenic in the 1,000th potency, and another dose in the 50,000th potency. INFLAMMATION OF THE TESTICLES.– This trouble, combined with varicocele and neurasthenia, in the case of a young man of 20 was wonderfully improved in less than a month after two years sufferings from these complaints. He was given Arsenicum in the 1,000th potency. SPASMS OF THE OESOPHAGUS.– A youth of 12 suffered from spasms of the swallowing tube, which caused him to vomit his food. His condition was greatly improved by a dose of Sulphur in the 1,000th potency, followed by Lachesis in the 10,000th potency. MIND AFFECTION AT THE CHANGE OF LIFE.– A lady, 40 years old, suddenly had the sensation that she was living in a different world. Everything around her seemed strange to her, she knew no longer where she was and she suffered mental agonies in consequence. She was cured in a few months with Medorrhinum given consecutively in the 1,000th, the 10,000th and 50,000th potency. TUMOUR OF THE BREAST.– A lady of 38 was cured of a breast tumour with Silica, but other tumours appeared afterwards in the other breast. ASTHMA. A lady, 42 years old, had been suffering for eight years from asthma. She was cured in a month with a dose of Arsenic in the 1,000th potency, followed by Arsenic in the 10,000th potency, and the cure has remained for two years. ASTHMA.– A girl of 15 with asthma is at present being treated and her condition has been greatly improved with Syphilinum 200the potency. SYRINGOMYELIA.– A young man, suffering from this disease of the spinal cord was wonderfully improved and nearly cured in the course of six months with Phosphorus in the 1,000th and the 10,000th potency. HAEMORRHAGE AND FIBROID TUMOUR AT THE CHANCE OF LIFE.– The haemorrhage and all other disagreeable symptoms were cured in the course of a year with Lachesis, followed by Phosphorus, both given in high potencies. NERVOUS BREAKDOWN.– A young girl, who suffered from neurasthenia owing to sorrow caused by a love affair, was cured in three weeks with Ignatia in the 10,000th. NERVOUS FEARS.– A lady of 54, who suffered because she feared to meet people, to go into crowds, and to go out because she dreaded that she would not be able to find a public convenience, was cured in six months with Sulphur in the 1,000th potency. SWALLOWING TROUBLE.– A child of 2 was brought to me and the mother told me that it was unable to swallow any solid food. It could not masticate and would take no nourishment except liquids. The child suffered also from facial eczema which had been in existence for several months. A single dose of Calcarea in the 1,000th potency enable the mother, to her great surprise, to feed the child on solid food, biscuits, etc. The child rapidly learned to masticate thoroughly and within six weeks the eczema had completely disappeared. These few cases are come of the patients whom I have seen in the course of a day. They gladden the heart of ma homoeopath, for they show the efficacy of the law of similars by his cures with highly potentized medicines. Ones satisfaction to produce cures like those described is increased by their having been brought about by a single remedy which was allowed to develop its full power of action before another dose of the same medicine in the same or in a higher potency was prescribed. Besides, no change of medicine was undertaken until the effect of the dose originally given had become fully established. If one changes haphazard from one medicine to the other or prescribes several medicines at the same time, one knows no longer which medicine has been responsible for improvement or for a cure. Cases of Psoriasis – from our archives [Case Of Psoriasis From Our Archives] Book NATIONAL JOURNAL OF HOMOEOPATHY by Vishpala Parthasarathy. Volume 1995 Jul / Aug Vol IV No 4 Author Kasivishwanathan T K. Subject Cases Remedy Puls / Nat-m / Ars / Agar / Syph. Psoriasis is one of the most obstinate skin conditions, which at the same times takes sudden turns for better or for worse without any apparent reason. And one has not infrequently seen cases clear up remarkably quickly after being given a Homoeopathic remedy and remain clear for a long time. Then on a recurrence when the patient comes for repetition of that “wonderful medicine” and after carefully taking the case again the same remedy is still indicated, what do we sometimes find? Not a disappearance of the eruption as before, but an obstinate persistence. However you will agree that we have quite good grounds for believing that the remedies given had some influence on the favourable course of the eruption”. (DR. ALVA BENJAMIN) Some Psoriasis cases treated by Dr. Benjamin are – Case 1: Mrs. W. K., aged 20 gave a history of having had an irritating rash above the left elbow with scaling for about an year. This condition had persisted in spite of many level treatments. She loved company and craved sympathy. She was a very quiet-spoken, dark, attractive young woman, with psoriatic patches as described above. She was given one dose of Pulsatilla 10 M. She was not seen for over 3 months when she reported a steady improvement and the patch on the side had almost completely disappeared and the patch on the elbow was steadily improving. No further medicine was given. When she reported again after 6 months, she said that she had been quite clear for a long time. (Note – Dr. P S Krishnamurthy prepared a complete anamnesis of psora and found the common factor Pulsatilla in the analysis,” I use Pulsatilla in cases of Psoriasis when no other remedy is coming forward for prescription. In addition to this, I usually use Pulsatilla in between the indicated remedies. But when it is indicated, I use it in almost all the available potencies in different scales until the edge of the Pulsatilla potency is completely rubbed off” – Dr. P.S. Krishnamurthy) Case 2: Mr. A.R. aged 19, had psoriasis in the shins, which had persisted since he was a child. It was generally worse in the winter. The rash, at the time of consultation, had also spread to the trunk. His general health was good except that he was constipated. He was tall, thin, and pale. Finding very few symptoms to prescribe upon. Dr. Benjamin remembered that the patients elder brother also suffered from Psoriasis and had done well on Natrum-mur, for which he gave clear indications, and therefore he prescribed Natrum-mur 10 M for this patient also with the result that in a months time all the lesions were very much less. After 5 weeks, when there was a slight relapse, another dose of Nat-mur 10 M was given with gratifying result; in four months time he was clear of the psoriasis. Dr. Benjamin himself advises that he would not advocate this method of prescribing but at times in the absence of any indications for any other remedy it may be useful. (Note – There was some evidence to believe genetic predisposition to psoriasis in this case). Case: 3 A very little woman who had a mild psoriatic eruption for several years. She was the typical “gold cane” Arsenic patient. Dr. Benjamin tried many potencies of Ars-alb ranging from 3x to 10M but got only temporary improvement, until he gave her for a short while four minim doses of Liquor-arsenicalis; thereafter a permanent cure was affected. Case : 4 Mr. S V P, age 75 years consulted Dr. M.P. Nimbhorkar for treatment of psoriasis, patches of which were found on hands, legs, elbows and back for over 4 years other treatments gave no relief. He had severe itching and burning with restlessness, worse by cold, every winter and better by hot application. Desire for alcoholic drinks. Always slept with hands over his head. Great exhaustion after exertion. Had malaria earlier. There was a family history of father suffering from psoriasis and mother from eczema. Younger sister had also psoriasis. He was given Ars-alb 30, one dose on 29-5-1980 and was asked to report after one month, he came back after a fortnight with increasing patches with burning, itching and restlessness. Given placebo for 2 months. After 2 months the patient complained of spread of psoriasis to new spots with itching and burning. He was given one dose of Ars-alb 200 on 4 Sept. 1980 with placebo for 2 months. After that he felt better and itching and burnings were less; he was prescribed Ars-alb 1 M and 10 Nov1980 with placebo for 2 months. Arsenic -alb had given definite relief but the patches remained when he was seen on 10Feb. 1981, there were changes in his symptoms. Itching and burning in spots better by cold water. General feeling of uneasiness in morning. Difficult to concentrate and gather his ideas. Arms very painful, worse by pressure. He was given, DNA 1 M one dose; repeated on 12 March 1981. The patient was better and when there was relapse in certain spots one more dose of DNA 1 M was repeated in August 1982. After 2 months there was improvement and only a small patch remained on left leg. The patient continued to improve and when he was seem again after a lapse of six years in May 1988, he had no psoriasis. In this case DNA played a prominent part as a supportive medicine as heredity seemed to be a causative factor. Dr. M.P. NIMBHORKAR Case 5: Mr. M.S. aged 32 consulted the doctor on 22 Aug. 1988 for the psoriatic patches on his skin, since the last 5 years. Rosy colour spot in skin itching, burning and swelling and worse after coition. Patient is very sensitive to cold and pain in his feet better by motion. Eruption on skin worse cold weather. He had a past history of syphilis in young age. Father had eczema. In Kents repertory (P 1328) only a single medicine is given against the rubric – Itching, coition after. He was given Agaricus 200 one dose on 22 August 1988. After one month burning and itching were less but patches remained one more dose of Agaricus 200 repeated on 25 Sept. 1988 with SL for 2 months. There was some improvement but the patient complained of severe pains in joints and bones in nights. Taking note of the past history of syphilis he was given Syphilinum 1 M dose on 10 Dec. 1988. There was a lot of improvement. Continued on placebo till March 1989. As a few patches were still there the doctor gave Syphilinum 10 M. After 2 months seen and there was a lot of improvement. SL and the patient continued to improve. Dr. M.P. NIMBHORKAR SOURCES: 1) Homoeopathic Treatment of skin diseases. Dr. Alva Benjamin – The Hahnemann gleanings, April 1952. 2) Psoriasis – Dr. M.P.

FROM OUR ARCHIVES Book NATIONAL JOURNAL OF HOMOEOPATHY by Vishpala Parthasarathy. Volume 1995 Sep / Oct Vol IV No 5 Author Kasivishwanathan T K. Subject Cases Remedy Agar / Thuj / Rhus-t. That Odd Symptom In his Organon, Aphorism 153, Dr.Hahnemann said in “this search for a Homoeopathic specific remedy, the more striking, singular, uncommon and peculiar (characteristic) signs and symptoms of the case of the disease are chiefly and most solely to be kept in view”. That odd symptom which leads to the similimum is got from observation or during interview. Some of the cases from our vast literature where the prescription was based on that odd symptom are presented below:- CASE 1: Cough followed by sneezing The lady was obviously feeling very low in spirits and depressed. Her chief troubles were utter exhaustion, periodic sore throats and indigestion relieved by eating. There was a feeling of trembling in stomach, with constipation and nightly aggravation. During daytime she felt as though her organs were almost paralyzed and she felt better at night. She was also very jealous of her husband. As these symptoms gave a fairly good picture of Lachesis, Dr. Eric F W Powell was about to give her a dose of Lachesis 1M. As the patient was conversant with Homoeopathy, she inquired as to what was being prescribed and in what potency. When informed of the remedy, she said “that is what Dr X (a Homoeopath) gave me and it did not help me at all”. She said that Doctor also was a high potency man. Dr. Powell therefore thought his selection of Lachesis was wrong. While talking with the doctor, she coughed two or three times and each little cough was followed by a sneeze. After searching in a detailed repertory. Dr. Powell prescribed Agaricus 200 3 doses, as that remedy covered her other symptoms as well. After initial aggravation, the patient improved in all her symptoms. Kents Repertory pg 804 contains this rubric – Cough, sneezing ends in – AGAR, Arg-n, Rad, Bell., bry, caps, carb-v, cina, hep, lyc, psor, sang. Squil,
