হোমিওপ্যাথিক ঔষধ এগ্নাস কাস্ট-এর কীনোট লক্ষণসমূহ

Agnus Castus [Agn] এগ্নাস কাস্টাস

Agn: ইন্দ্রিয়ের অতিরিক্ত অত্যাচারের ফলে অকাল বার্ধক্য, সম্পূর্ণ ভাবে স্বাস্থ্য ধ্বংস হওয়ার ভয়।

Agn: অতিরিক্ত হস্তমৈথুন করার ফলে ধাতুদৌর্বল্য, অল্প সময় স্থায়ী লিঙ্গ উত্থান।

Agn: সর্বদা বিষণ্ণ, রোগী মনে করে কাজকর্ম করে কোনো লাভ নেই, কারণ শীঘ্রই মৃত্যু হবে, মরে যাব, এ কথা বার বার বলে।

Agn: ঘরের ভিতরের বাতাস ঘন ও ভারী অনুভূত হয়।

Agn: অমনোযোগী, কোনো কাজে, বিষয়ে বা পড়াশোনায় মনোযোগ দিতে পারেনা।

Agn: কোনো বস্তুর দিকে এক দৃষ্টে তাকিয়ে থাকলে মাথাব্যথার উপশম।

শ্লেষ্মা প্রবণতা যে সব লোকের, তাদের পক্ষে উপযোগী । রোগী অন্যমনস্ক বোধশক্তি কমে যায়, কোন কিছু স্মরণ রাখতে পারে না, একই কথা দু’বার পড়তে হয় তবে কিছু বুঝতে পারে (লাইকো; ফস্, সিপিয়া)। “ব্যাভিচারী” তাদের ধ্বজভঙ্গ তৎসহ মোহরোগগ্রস্ত । অবিবাহিত ও স্নায়বিক দুর্বলতায় ভুগছে, তাদের পক্ষে উপযোগী । অকালবার্দ্ধক্য – বিষন্ন, উদাসীন, মানসিক বিশৃঙ্খলা, নিজেই নিজেকে ঘৃণা করে, এইরূপ অবস্থা ইন্দ্রিয়ের অপব্যবহার ও শুক্রক্ষয় থেকে হয়েছে সেইসব যুবকের পক্ষে উপযোগী । সম্পূর্ণ ধ্বজভঙ্গঃ ইন্দ্রিয় শিখিল, ঝুলে পড়ে, ঠান্ডা । কোনরকম সঙ্গমশক্তি বা ইচ্ছা থাকে না (ক্যালেডি; সেলেনি)। বারে বারে গণোরিয়ারোগে ভুগে ধ্বজভঙ্গ । গণোরিয়া চাপা পড়ে তার কুফল (মেডো)। মেহ রোগ তত্সহ সঙ্গমেচ্ছার অভাব বা লিঙ্গ উত্তেজিত হয় না । লিউকোরিয়া (প্রদর) — স্বচ্ছ কিন্তু কাপড়ে দাগ লাগে । ইন্দ্রিয় অত্যন্ত শিথিল অথচ অসাড়ে স্রাব বের হতে থাকে । স্তন্যদাত্রী মায়েদের দুগ্ধস্রাব কমে অথবা লোপ পায় (আসাফো; ল্যাক-ক্যা; ল্যাক-ডি); সেই সাথে প্রায়ই অত্যন্ত বিষন্নতা, বলেন- তিনি মারা যাবেন । হেরিং মাছ অথবা মৃগনাভির গন্ধ পাচ্ছেন— এইরূপ ভুল কল্পনা । হাঁটাচলা করলে উরুর মাঝখানে ছাল ওঠে— এই লক্ষণ এগ্নাসে সারে । সম্বন্ধ- জননেন্দ্রিয়ের দুর্বলতা ও ধ্বজভঙ্গরোগে এগ্লাসের পরে ক্যালাডিয়াম ও সেলিনিয়াম ভাল কাজ করে। শক্তি  – 0,৩, ২০০।

অ্যাগ্লাস ক্যাস্টাস

অতিরিক্ত ইন্দ্রিয়-সেবাজনিত ধাতুদৌর্বল্য ইহার বড় কথা ৷ যুবক বা যুবতী—যাহারা অস্বাভাবিক উপায়ে অতিরিক্ত ইন্দ্রিয়-সেবা করিয়া ভগ্নস্বাস্থ্য হইয়া পড়িয়াছে—বিবাহিত জীবন যাহাদের কাছে বিড়ম্বনামাত্র—সুন্দরী স্ত্রীর আলিঙ্গনেও কোনরূপ উত্তেজনা হয় না বা স্বামী-সহবাসে যাহারা সঙ্গমমুখের কোনরূপ আস্বাদন লাভ করে না তাহাদের পক্ষে অ্যাগ্লাস প্রায়ই বেশ উপকারে আসে। যৌন-জীবনের স্পন্দন নাই, কম্পন নাই, উত্তেজনা নাই, অনুভূতি নাই, আছে কেবল অনুশোচনা, আছে কেবল আত্মগ্লানি।

অতিরিক্ত হস্তমৈথুন বা পুনঃপুনঃ গনোরিয়াবশতঃ ধ্বজভঙ্গ দোষ । লিউকোরিয়া। জরায়ুর শিথিলতা।

পেটের মধ্যে অতিরিক্ত বায়ু, স্মৃতিশক্তির দুর্বলতা, আত্মাহুশোচনা, আত্মহত্যার ইচ্ছা।

প্লীহার বিবৃদ্ধি।

বাতকর্মের গন্ধ ঠিক মূত্রের গন্ধের মত বহুক্ষণ কাপড়ে থাকিয়া যায় । কোষ্ঠকাঠিন্য। সাইলিসিয়ার মত ।

প্রস্তুতির শুনে দুগ্ধের অভাব ও নিদারুণ বিষণ্ণতা ।

অকাল বার্ধক্য; স্বতিভ্রংশ ।

শীতকাতর । অতিরিক্ত ধূমপানজনিত ট্যাচিকার্ডিয়া বা হৃৎপিণ্ডের দ্রুতগতি ।

এই আশ্চর্য্য ঔষধটিকে অনেক সময়ে উপেক্ষা করা হয়। যে সকল পুরাতন পাপী অতিরিক্ত ইন্দ্রিয়সেবা এবং হস্তমৈথুন করিয়া ভগ্নস্বাস্থ্য হইয়া পড়িয়াছে, তাহাদের জন্য এই ঔষধটি মনে করা উচিত । সেই সব পান্ডুর, রুগ্ন, বিষন্ন মানুষ, যাহারা তাহাদের অপব্যয়িত জীবনের জন্য দুঃখ করে । ইহা স্ত্রী-পুরুষ উভয়ের পক্ষেই উপযোগী । জননেন্দ্রিয়ের দুর্বলতা, ঐ অঙ্গের শিথিলতা । সর্বপ্রকার ক্রিয়ার বিপৰ্যয়। তা কোন স্ত্রীলোক অতিরিক্ত হস্তমৈথুনে অভ্যস্ত ছিল, সে বিবাহের পর দেখিল যে সঙ্গমকাৰ্য্যে আর জননেন্দ্রিয়ে শিহরণ অনুভব করে না, এই ঔষধ তাহাকে আরোগ্য করিয়াছিল । পরে তাহার সন্তান জন্মিল । কিন্তু তাহার স্তনে দুধ হইল না । আবার তিন সপ্তাহের মধ্যেই এগ্নাস তাহার বিলম্বিত দুগ্ধ উপস্থাপিত করিয়াছিল । দুধ আসিবার পর যদি বন্ধ হইয়া যায়, কিম্বা যদি খুব অল্প দেখা দেয়, যদি উল্লিখিত ইতিহাস পাওয়া যায় এবং যদি রোগিণী খুব বিষন্ন থাকে, তাহা হইলে বাধা দেওয়া না হইলে, খুব সম্ভবতঃ এই ঔষধই তাহাকে আরোগ্য করে । ঐ ইতিহাস থাকিলে ইহা যুবতীগণের জরায়ু হইতে রক্তস্রাব আরোগ্য করে এবং ঋতুলোপ পাইলে তাহা পুনঃস্থাপিত করে। যোনিটি অত্যন্ত শিথিল হইয়া পড়ে, অনেক সময়ে জরায়ুভ্রংশ দেখা দেয় এবং ডিমের শ্বেতাংশের ন্যায় প্রচুর প্রদরস্রাব হইতে থাকে। শোচনীয়, দুঃখাভিভূত যুবক, তাহার প্রথম জীবনের পাপের জন্য ভগ্নমনা হইয়া পড়িয়াছে, এক্ষণে নববিবাহিত হইয়া দেখিল যে, সে পুরুষত্বহীন হইয়া পড়িয়াছে। তাহার গণোরিয়া হইয়াছিল, সে অত্যধিক ইন্দ্রিয়সেবায় জীবন কাটাইয়াছিল আর এখন তাহার জননেন্দ্রিয় শীতল ও শিথিল হইয়া পড়িয়াছে; মলত্যাগকালে প্রষ্টেট গ্রন্থির রস নির্গত হইতেছে। তাহার সুন্দরী ও যুবতী স্ত্রীও তাহার লিঙ্গোদ্রেক করাইতে পারে না, যদিও মাত্র কয়েকদিন পূৰ্ব্বেও সে গোপন সহবাসে সমর্থ হইয়াছিল এবং ভোরবেলায় লিঙ্গোদ্রেক হইতেছিল, কিন্তু আর লিঙ্গোদ্রেক হয় না। উপরোক্ত কারণ ও অবস্থা হইতে বহু কষ্টজনক লক্ষণ উপস্থিত হয়। স্মৃতিশক্তির নাশ, হতাশা, আত্মহত্যার চিন্তা, উৎকণ্ঠা, ভয়, এবং খিটখিটে স্বভাব দেখা দেয়। এইসব রোগীরা শিরঃপীড়া ও আলোকাতঙ্কে ভোগে এবং স্নায়বিক লক্ষণসমূহ এত বেশী সংখ্যক হয় যে, তাহা বর্ণনা করা চলে না। চর্মের উপর সড়সড়ানি। মস্তক, মুখ ও দন্তে ছিড়িয়া ফেলার ন্যায় বেদনা। অতি সাধারণ খাদ্য ব্যতীত সব খাদ্যেই তাহার পাকস্থলীর গোলযোগ দেখা দেয় এবং সে বমনোদ্বেগের জন্য অত্যন্ত অভিযোগ করে। তাহার পেশীগুলি শিথিল হয়। সে রক্তহীন হইয়া পড়ে; গ্রন্থিগুলি, বিশেষতঃ প্লীহা বৰ্দ্ধিত হয়। দিনে দিনে তাহার উদরে বায়ুসঞ্চয় বাড়িতে থাকে। উদরাভ্যন্তরস্থ যন্ত্রাদি ভারের ন্যায় ঝুলিয়া পড়ে। সরলান্ত্রের ক্রমিক দুর্বলতা ও কোষ্ঠবদ্ধতা দেখা দেয়। মলত্যাগ করিতে তাহাকে জোরে কোথ দিতে হয়, মলবেগ প্রায়ই ‘সিলিকা, ‘স্যানিকিউলা’ এবং থুজার’ ন্যায় নিষ্ফল হয় এবং মল একটু বাহির হইয়া আবার ঢুকিয়া যায়। মল বৃহৎ এবং কঠিন। মলদ্বার চুলকানি ও জ্বালা, মূত্রের ন্যায় গন্ধযুক্ত শব্দকারী অধঃবায়ু । গুহ্যদ্বারের ছাল উঠিয়া যায়। শীঘ্রই তাহার খকখকে কাশি ও নৈশ-ঘৰ্ম্ম দেখা দেয়। অঙ্গ-প্রত্যঙ্গগুলি ক্লান্ত ও ঠান্ডা থাকে। সে ঠান্ডায় অত্যনুভূতিযুক্ত হয় এবং চুপ করিয়া থাকিতে চায়। পরিশ্রমে ও চলাফেরা করিলে তাহার উপসর্গগুলি বাড়ে। তাহার উপদেষ্টার অভাব থাকে না এবং তাহারা তাহাকে বুঝায় যে, তাহার স্নায়ু-দৌর্বল্য দেখা দিয়াছে। তাহাকে এগ্নাস ক্যাসটাস অবশ্যই দিতে হইবে ।

5.0 Agn : Agnus Castus   A FEW INTERESTING CASES [Interesting Cases] Book HEAL THYSELF (The Homoeopathic World) A Popular Journal of Medical, Dietetic, Social and Sanitary Science By J Ellis Barker. Volume 1936 May Vol LXXI No 845 Author Sudhir Kumar. Subject Cases Remedy Ars / Agn / Verat / Arn / Merc / Led / Lyc / Puls / Phos. BY DR. SUDHIR KUMAR BOSU ROY CHOUDHURY, B.Sc. (Cal.), M.D. (Orient), Khulna. (From The Hahnemannian Gleanings, August, 1935). S.N.B., aged about 40, was attacked with Gonorrhoea a few years ago. The discharge was suppressed by injections. After a year or so he complained of a burning pain in his stomach. This pain was almost constant and was temporarily ameliorated by cold drinks and cold applications. He took various medicines but no improvement was marked. I gave him Arsenic 30, three doses (a dose every fifteen minutes). After two doses this pain disappeared for the time but after twenty-four hours the pain reappeared. I gave him Ars. alb. 1m, one dose; he felt well for a few days and then again the pain reappeared. I gave him no other medicine except a few occasional doses of Placebo for I thought that would re-establish the flow and ameliorate the pain. After full two months a gleety discharge broke out. He complained of burning in the urethra while urinating. The interest of the case lies in the fact that the gastric pain disappeared as soon as the discharge made its appearance. The pain and the character of the discharge was exactly the same as they were at the time of suppression. The patient was melancholy and rather flatulent. He was absent-minded and lost a considerable portion of retentive power. He had a gleety discharge all along. I gave him a dose of Agnus castus 200. The burning and the pain disappeared in no time. He was also cured of hankering after sexual gratification. Babu L.M.C. went to Calcutta where he was severely bitten by mosquitoes. He came back after a couple of days with a slight fever and sore bruised sensation all over the body. I was called in to see the case. I attended the case and found the above symptoms. I gave him a dose of Arnica mont. 1m. Scarcely had I returned to my room, than I was again called in to see him. I went there and saw that he was sweating profusely all over his body. There was cold perspiration on his forehead. His tongue was fast becoming paralysed. There was incoordination of the muscles of extremities. His hands and feet trembled and his words came out in jerks. His face was blue, cold and pinched. Finger nails blue. Tips of fingers pinched. Pulse was absolutely imperceptible at the wrist. Genuine collapse. Temperature 95 F. He was given Veratrum alb. 30 (a dose every five minutes). After three doses all these symptoms disappeared. he then complained of a severe and deep seated pain as if in the bone in the right shoulder. This pain was felt most acutely in the evening and at night. He was given Mercurius 30 thrice a day and was cured. He did not take Arnica I gave him at first. A boy of about eight years of age was bitten by a rat somewhere below his left knee joint. There was a small deep punctured wound at the site. There was absolutely no bleeding. This was followed by high fever and severe pain all over his body and specially in the vicinity of the wound. He was given an injection to prevent lock-jaw. Pain, fever, etc., subsided. But after a month his left knee joint began to swell. He experienced a pain which was ameliorated by ice cold application. He was given allopathic ointment. Pain and swelling subsided but his knee joint became stiff. He could neither flex nor extend his knee. He had to walk on crutches. A big Calcutta doctor was consulted who opined that there was actual shortening of tendons. He received medicine for about a year from Allopaths. No improvement was marked. I was called in to see the patient. I gave him a dose of Ledum pal. 200. This cured him in a week. No other medicine was needed. Chhedu Shaikh lives in our village. He is extremely poor. He was attacked with pneumonia some two years ago. He received quack medicines and recovered. From that time every cold settled in the chest. Towards the close of the winter in 1933 he was attacked with a similar cold. He complained of pressing, bursting pain in the upper third of the right lung. He had a dry hacking cough caused by tickling in the suprasternal fossa and in the stomach. He felt worse in the evening. The cough and the pain was worse lying on the left side. He had burning all over his body. He was given Phosphorus 200 and was cured. Towards the close of the last winter he was a gain attacked with pain in the chest. He had slight fever which was at its highest between 4 to 8 p.m. He had loose cough with mouthfuls of expectoration of greenish yellow colour. This profuse expectoration gave no relief. Fever and pain went on unabated. When he coughed it seemed as if the entire parenchyma of the lungs were softened. He had diarrhoea and excessive thirst and restlessness. Burning pain in the stomach and excoriating stools, etc., were also present. He was extremely debilitated. I gave him Ars. alb. 200. This controlled the thirst, the diarrhoea, gastric pain, etc. I waited for two days but there was no improvement of the chest symptoms. I gave him Lycopodium 1m, one dose. This cured him and he has been well since then. (For a similar case see E. Carletons Medicine and Surgery, p. 103, Case No. II). A police officer – a debauchee in early life, was attacked with syphilis a few years ago. He had buboes in both sides. He was treated by allopathic medicine. He came to me with the following symptoms:. (1) Headache from sundown to sunrise; from slightest mental exertion; while working in sun or artificial light. (2) Eyesight almost lost; sees black flies before his eyes. Pain in his eyes. Syphilitic iritis. (3) Sensation of a cobweb or a gauze before the eye. (4) Extremely painful ulcers on his body. (5) Blood examination for syphilis positive. He was given Asafoetida 1m. He can now read without glasses. No headache for about six months. The ulcers have all disappeared. He is now one of my staunch supporters. A robust young man engaged in athletic sports was attacked with intermittent fever. He took lumps of quinine and indigenous drugs. This suppressed the paroxysms for the time being. When he came to me he gave me the symptom that he would feel feverish during the full and new moons. He was greatly reduced in health and in spite of all sorts of exercises his measurements did not increase. He was given Silicea 1m and cured. His measurement increased rapidly. A robust young man of 25 was the subject. He worked very laboriously in an Electric Supply Corporation. During the Pous Parban he ate plenty of fat food and cakes. He was suddenly attacked with a violent form of dysentery. The allopaths told that it was a case of Bacillary Dysentery and their medicines and injections were of no avail. When I was called in (gratis) to see him I came across the following symptoms:. (1) Great pain in the stomach and abdomen. (2) Stool: pure blood in large quantities with tenesmus before, during and after stool. (3) Tongue coated, thickly white. (4) Very little thirst. (5) High fever. (6) Chilliness. The more the pain, the greater the chill. (7) Nausea: great and persistent. He was given Pulsatilla 200, three doses (a dose after each stool). Improvement began after the second dose. The third dose was not used. No more medicine was given. He was cured in twenty-four hours. A severe case of acute Rhinitis. A lady aged about 25 years was the subject. She was thin, scrawny and black and was rather of dry, irritable temperament. she suffered from late but profuse menstruation. She was extremely careless about her health. She caught cold which settled in her head. On close examination I came across the following symptoms: (1) Severe chill in the evening. Chilliness persisting throughout the attack. (2) High fever, temperature rose as high as 104 F. (3) Nausea and vomiting of food and bile. Bitter vomiting. Nausea continued throughout the attack. Great thirst. (4) Tongue coated, thickly white. (5) Great restlessness. (6) Thin, nasal discharge in the beginning. This soon changed into thick greenish yellow discharge which was bland. (7) Severe pain in the forehead showing that the frontal sinuses were attacked. This was relieved by cold application and cold air. (8) Nausea temporarily ameliorated by placing a cup of cold water on the epigastric and abdominal regions. (9) No stool for several days. (10) Pain all over her body as if beaten. She was given Pulsatilla 1m, one dose, and was cured. (See “HEAL THYSELF” for a similar case cured by Nux vom). SEXUAL ABNORMALITIES Book   The Homoeopathic Herald By Das N C.

  1. Agnus castus

The symptoms indicate that this remedy has a diminished primary action, which in the hands of a homoeopathic physician becomes a valuable remedy in certain cases of impotency, as I have experienced is several patients. (Staf.).

  1. Caladium seguinum
  2. This remedy is used very much by (American) negroes to produce impotence, either in revenge, or from jealousy. In the latter case they think that if they smear Caladium juice on the wifes coral girdle (which they always wear) it makes them more chaste, and produces impotence in men who come near the wife while the husband is away. (Hering).
  3. A traveler of 26 suffered from gleet with impotence. which has lasted for longer than a year. Patient was normal otherwise. Caladium helped. (Rosenberg.)
  4. Calcarea carbonica
  5. Voluptuous thoughts; lack of sexual impulse; weak sexual potency; no pollutions; too brief erection during sexual intercourse; stitches and burning when semen passes at intercourse. (Hahnemann).
  6. As little as this remedy can be dispensed with in treating the results of onanism, yet it alone is hardly ever sufficient; still, it sufficed in one of my cases. Man of 20, bloated, of spongy stature, had practiced onanism frequently since he was 16. Symptoms: His florid complexion had vanished; digestion disturbed; constantly thirsty for cold drinks; muscles weak; stitches in chest when lifting weight; dead tired when walking; bathed in perspiration from least excertion. Conscientious scruples. Calcarea carbonica was given. In a week his symptoms were worse, but gradual improvement soon followed. After six months patient felt better than ever. (B, in D.)
  7. Woman of 21, generally well; though married for 22 years has not conceived; inclined to obesity; was given Calcarea carbonica 30c, which reporter had found valuable in similar cases. After two months she became pregnant, and was confined at full term. (Schreter).
  8. Lady of 32 had last been confined 9 years previously, was now troubled with copper – colored facial eruption for which Calcarea carbonica was given; soon after she became pregnant. (Gerner.)
  9. Camphora
  10. Man of 28 became totally impotent; no erections even after zealous external stimulation, in spite of active inclination. Camphora 3c, one drop, decreased the inclination, but gradually new life returned to the genitals. One drop of Acidum muriaticum, and later China 6c strengthened patient completely (Schuler)
  11. Cannabis
  12. Man complains that he could not fulfil his conjugal duties during his 19 years of married life because when he gets of his wife she is “as hot as fire” and then his erection ceases. Cannabis 30c was given him twice daily, but his wife received Platina 6c, also twice daily, and she soon became pregnant. (Hartung.)
  13. Mrs. F.24, strong, her husband 30, also normal, had lived together for 6 years without children. Both were given Cannabis 1c, a drop every night for two weeks. This produced in the man bloody nocturnal pollutions, in the woman vaginitis with corroding leucorrhea. In the third week both were given Mercurius solubilis 9c, repeated after a few weeks, Pregnancy occurred. (Pleyel).
  14. China
  15. Man 30, strictly moral and of strong character, has suffered for a few days with the following symptoms: Intolerable craving for various dainty tid – bits for which he previously did not care; day and night tormenting libido. Peculiar heavy physical sensation; laziness; weakness of entire body, especially in knees. He was given China 9c, one dose, which produced undisturbed sleep and cured everything. (Bethmann).
  16. Conium.

(a) Impotence and lacking erections; insufficient and short – lasting erections; weak coitus followed by exhaustion, (Hahnemann). (b) It is a grand remedy in excessive pollutions in young men, and in partial impotence from such pollutions. (Lobeth.) (c) Man of 26, onanist, not married, has been treated for a long time by many allopathic physicians, and finally hydropathically on account of chest and stomach troubles, great irritability and hypochondriasis, with some improvement; but still has pollutions minus erections and libido. He was now engaged to marry. Conium 30c. Nine doses wee given during four weeks; pollutions less and without following weakness. Libido and erections not lasting till ejaculation. Sepia 1500c was given every two days for several weeks. During 5 weeks he has only two pollutions. Coitus now normal. this was followed by Lycopodium 30c. One dose completed the cure. (Ehrhart.) (d) Man, 30, of irritable, sanguine temper, has previously much indulged in venery, but for six year had abstained. Has now been married for two years, but, on account of weak and quickly passing erections and ejaculations, his hopes has been frustrated. Sulphur spirit gtt. 12, was given twice, followed by bladder tenesmus, after which Conium 30c was given once weekly for about two months with complete result as to procreation. (Marschall).

  1. Hyoscyamus

Girl of 14, has not yet menstruated; after long sleep in sun became almost insane, lascivious, will touch sexual organs of others. Is angry, hits everybody. She has attacks of fright and fear; fears imagined wolf, or that she will be burned. Belladonna 60c and Hyoscyamus 30c, later Sulphur cured in 6 weeks. After Hyoscyamus followed itching over entire body, especially of sexual organs. (Hahnemann.)

  1. Lycopodium

(a) Weak erections; excessive pollutions; lack of sexual impulse; impotent for years; aversion to intercourse. Easily inclined to intercourse even when thinking of it. Intractable desire for intercourse every night. Ejaculation too soon. (Hahnemann.) (b) Von Boenninghausen recommends Lycopodium generally for impotence.

  1. Magnetis polus arcticus

Helped in two cases of sexual where erections was present, but organ became relaxed at moment of climax minus ejaculation. (Hartmann.)

  1. Natrum muriaticum

(a) Excessive irritability of sexual organs, and excessive imagination toward copulation. (Hahnemann). (b) Natrum muriaticum in brandy, a tablespoonful evenings is said to produce conception from intercourse the following night. Several surprising examples of this have been related to me. (Hering). Hahnemanns remarks concerning female aversion toward intercourse and Herings report put together deserve attention.

  1. Nux vomica.

Obstinate pollutions (not caused by onanism) as often found in robust men, were at times cured by Nux vomica. Fervent sexual impulses with frequent painful erections in the morning hours, are quickly cured by Nux vomica, if there is not gonorrhea present. (Hartmann).

  1. Phosphorus

(a) Too strong erections evenings; impotent and too quick ejaculations at intercourse; too frequent pollutions. (Hahnemann). (b) Repeatedly I have observed that after Phosphorus had been taken (which has exact relations to the male and female sexual organs) pregnancy occurred, hence this remedy should be remembered in sterility, if the other conditions are in the realm of this remedy. However, during homoeopathic treatment, as soon as the general conditions is improved, women who had not conceived for a longer time, often became pregnant. This undoubtedly is due to the return of normal uterine function. One must avoid laying improved inclination to conception to a single remedy. Aside from Phosphorus also Mercurius, Ferrum, and perhaps Cannabis seem to have this characteristic in large degree. (Rummel.) (c) Mrs. F., married for 2 years, of tender, irritable body; is in fair health between menses, but during menstruation (which was not abundant) suffers from severe cutting abdominal pains, as if a knife were cutting around, with backache and vomiting of bile, mucus and food, preceded by leucorrhoea and frequent urination; weepy mood. Phosphorus 30c was given. The next menstruation was less painful and without vomiting. At the next menstrual time there was no discharge; patient was pregnant for the first time. (Rummel.) 14 Phosphoric acid (a) Before I became acquainted with Homoeopathy, I had cured several patients suffering from pollutions (usually the result of onanism or frequent coitus) with Phosphoric acid, 5, 10 to 15 drops in 2 cup of water, given before retiring, continued for months. I do not recollect that this caused any proving symptoms. I also dispensed smaller doses and frequent repetition with favorable results. (Wolf.) (b) For frequent and weakening pollutions, especially in patients who had been onanists, the longer continued use of Phosphoric acid 6c and 9c was most helpful. (Lobeth.) (c) Phosphoric acid, one drop in a tablespoonful of water, taken morning and night is recommended in this strong dose for impotence from excessive venery with exhausting diarrhea and nightsweats. (Rosenberg). (d) For a man weakened by dissolute living I prescribed (aside from other homoeopathic remedies) Phosphoric acid in Hahnemannian doses. The action was minimal. Then I prescribed the same remedy unpotentized 12 drops in water, several times. The result was excellent, general well – feeling and happiness enlivened the patient; the former long – lasting night – sweats disappeared, and coitus was again normal. (Kopp.)

  1. Platina

(a) Mrs. M. 40, phlegmatic temperament, and lacking sexual desire, mother of several children, generally well and strong; without apparent cause suddenly developed excessive sexual desire which was unknown before; now constantly craving over – powering satisfaction, throttling all other feeling. In spite of best conjugal efforts her pathological craving was insatiable. Her dreams were full of voluptuous pictures, and when awake that was the topic of her talk. Voluptuous tickling in uterine location. Platina 3c, 1 grain, cured in thirty hours. (Stapf). (b) Girl of 25, very irritable and sensitive, due to frequent sexual excitement developed insatiable sexual desire; voluptuous tickling in uterine region; sleepless excitement; alternatingly sad or merry; weeps easily, Menstruates every 14 to 16 days, copiously, lasting 6 to 9 days. Platina 3c, one grain, was given every morning. Fifteen minutes later wept excessively without apparent cause for 2 hours, Restless sleep that evening, repulses all sexual approaches; the next day quieter; sexual desire much less. A few later she menstruated properly. (staf.) (c) Nymphomania was cured in a case by Platina 6c. (Stapf.)

  1. Selenium

Recommended by Von Boenninghausen for impotency.

  1. Sepia

(a) H. 23, weakened by masturbation for a few years, but liberated himself two years ago, and since has these symptoms: Pollutions almost every night. followed by stitches in left side of forehead; practically always disagreeably sweetish taste; mouth always dry, but he is not thirsty; hard stools preceded by “bellyache” as soon as urging begins. Goes to sleep very late in evening on account of sensation of tiredness and restlessness in legs, especially in calves. Sepia 1500c relieved all in a week, and after that no more pollutions. Two weeks later complained of stitching earache, which was cured by Pulsatilla 30c. the next day Sepia was repeated once. In two weeks patient was completely cured. (B. in D.) (b) Man past 30 has complete falling of hair, redness and chronic inflammation of eyelids which feel heavy; has frequent weakening pollutions; congestion of head. Sulphur 60c was given, and after a week Sepia 1500c relieved much and cured the pollutions Later he was given Silicea 30c which completed the cure. (Von Boenninghausen).

  1. Veratrum

(a) In nymphomania following suppression of lochia, Veratrum was valuable. (Gross.) (b) Mrs. D. married six years, childless, has suffered from severe congestion of head on the day before her regular but scanty menstruation, pain lasted for three days. Aconitum 30c, Crocus 12c and Secale cornutum 12c produced normal menstruation and cured her congestion, which was followed by pregnancy. (Fragm). (c) Impotence in a man of about 30 was cured by a course of treatment with Sulphur, Conium, Lycopodium, then Agnus 3c and Selenium 3c in alternation. (Gross.) (d) A very complicated condition following onanism, was cured by Nux vomica, Sulphur, Lycopodium, Calcarea carbonica and Phosphorus. (Glaser.).
