(Including Infections, Suppurations, Cellulitis, etc.) #Belladonna [Bell] is the remedy most often indicated for the initatory symptoms of abscess. The parts ***swell rapidly, become bright red, there is intense throbbing which is painful,pus develops speedily the swelling increases and the redness radiates; here *Belladonna is in close relation with *Hepar and *Mercurius. It comes in earlier than either of these remedies and corresponds more closely to the ***active, sthenic variety of abscess before pus is matured. In abscesses about the alveolar processes, the so called gum boils, **Belladonna is often the first remedy and **Mercurius follows here in most cases. In acute glandular abscess **Belladonna is often indicated and is a beginning remedy. **Chamomilloa is not a remedy to suggest itself in abscess, yet has proved valuable in promoting the formation of pus in chronic abscesses where **Hepar has failed to act promptly, and in making the pains more bearable. #Hepar sulphur. [Hep] is the great homoeopathic remedy for suppurations where the pus is not decomposed. It suits especially lymphatic, phlegmatic individuals. ***Excessive sensitiveness of the parts is a leading indication. It is further indicated by these symptoms: chilly sensations, throbbing in the parts, or ***sharp, sticking pains which are worse at night and from If given low in threatening suppuration it will favor the formation of pus. The suppurative process will often be aborted by **Hepar if given in the higher potencies. Such abscesses as felon or whitlow generally do well under **Hepar. If there be a bruised pain present, sometimes **Arnica may do good. There are two other preparations similar to **Hepar; calcium sulphide, which is the chemically pure article, has never been proved, hence we must regard it only as a makeshift for *Hepar, and Calcarea sulphurica. The last remedy has been found useful in cases of abscess where the suppuration seems to continue indefinitely. The presence of pus with a **vent has been considered a good indication; it comes in after **Silicea, and suits painful abscesses about the anus, and is a most useful remedy in gum boils. Dr. W. E. Leonard claims that in the 12x it will abort felons and furuncles. #Silicea [Sil] is the remedy where the suppuration continues and the wound refuses to heal, no matter where the suppurative process is located; the pus is apt to be thin,watery,and the process is sluggish and
indolent one. Under **Silicea the suppurative process takes on a healthy action , the pus becomes benign, granulation appear. It is then time to stop the remedy, for if it be continued it may undo the good it has done,and another remedy, probably **Fluoric acid ,will have to be given. This remedy antidotes the overuse of **Silicea. **Silicea is usually prescribed after an abscess has been lanced or opened by means of poultice. Warmth is very grateful to the **Silicea patient. **Fluoric acid has relief from cold. Abscesses having ***much cellular infiltration in their vicinity call for Silicea. It, too,is a remedy for all fistulous burrowings. In rectal fistula it is very often the remedy; great nervous erethism, if present, is an additional. There is often considerable foetor to the discharge of **Silicea cases. Scrofulous and tubercular abscesses especially call for **Silicea. #Mercurius. [Merc] Differing from **Belladonna, from **Hepar, and especially from **Silicea is Mercurius, which is one of our good remedies in abscess. It comes in after **Belladonna, when pus has formed. It favors the formation of pus especially in the lower potencies, and is especially indicated in ***glandular abscesses; the pus is greenish in tint, and quite thin and fluid. There is intense, shining redness with throbbing and stinging pains. It does not follow Silicea well. From *Hepar it is to be distinguished by general symptoms; then, too, the suppurative process is slower, and all the pains are greatly aggravated at night. In abscesses at the **roots of the teeth it is one of our best remedies, and it is often efficacious in toothache due to this cause. It will often abort suppuration when used in the highest potencies, as in tonsillitis, where it is a most valuable remedy. It is a remarkable remedy in pyorrhoea and will make extraction of teeth unnecessary. #Lachesis. [Lach] In low conditions of abscess, when pus in thin, dark, ichorous, and offensive in character, **Lachesis may me the remedy. The parts are purplish in appearance. It the remedy for abscess where poisonous matter has been introduced into the system, causing the trouble. **Carbo vegetabilis may also be a remedy in long-lasting, unhealthy suppurative processes which produce a hectic fever. **Rhus toxicodendron is another remedy for abscesses of the parotid or axillary glands where there is a discharge of a bloody, serous pus.
Crops of boils in various parts of the body indicate the remedy well. the pus is bloody and serous. and the swelling is dark red. Boils coming in crops call for **Arnica. #Echinacea [Echi] has achieved a well merited reputation in suppurative conditions. and particularly to hinder the absorption of pus and so prevent pyaemia. The pus is acrid and excoriating. Silicea. #Rhus toxicodendron [Rhus. carrying it on to a discharge of the pus and a cure of the trouble. .The evident poisoned condition of the system and tendency of the abscess to take on a carbunculous state will indicate Rhus. where there is a marked psoric taint and a tendency to boils. correspond to **Sulphur. **Asafoetida. the production of watery.

It has proved curative in abscesses about the parotid and axillary glands. every little wound or scratch suppurates. The symptoms. unhealthy skin. especially is it useful in chronic cases where the discharge is profuse. not attended with active inflammation. the pain is intense. they are ***very sore. #Arnica [Arn] is the remedy where abscesses and boils do not mature. With *Lachesis the discharge is a thin ichorous pus. and a number of other remedies may perchance be indicated in suppuration and abscess. **Lycopodium has also been found useful in boils which are greatly aggravated by poultices. Calendula (traumatic suppuration). then another crop comes. the great debility. #Sulphur [Sulph] is also a remedy which may be used with the greatest benefit in abscesses and suppuration. especially has it been found useful in suppurative conditions about the eye. **Calcarea carbonica and Graphites. accompanied with emaciation and hectic fever.

tonic in the allopathic sense. By giving the indicated preparation of Iron it removes the underlying dyscrasia giving rise to the anaemic or chlorotic conditions and cures the trouble. #Pulsatilla. [Puls] **Pulsatilla is the great antidote to Iron, and hence is indicated in the anaemic condition produced by large or continued doses of it. The system is relaxed and worn out; the patient is chilly and suffers from gastric and menstrual derangements. Thus the symptoms resemble closely those calling for **Ferrum. The cause of the anaemia must be sought for, and if the case comes from allopathic hands it is safe to infer that much Iron has been given and **Pulsatilla will surely be the remedy. The **Pulsatilla patient feels better in the open air. Dizziness on rising, absence of thirst, and the peculiar disposition will lead to the remedy. Cyclamen, which is similar in many respects, differ from **Pulsatilla in dreading the fresh air. **Cinchona is the chief remedy for anaemia resulting from loss of fluids,as in lactation or haemorrhage, or from all exhausting discharges, such as menstrual flow, long-lasting diarrhoea, and sexual excesses and loss of semen. The quality of the blood is actually poorer in cases calling for **Cinchona. Special symptoms are heaviness of the head, loss of sight,fainting and ringing in the ears, pale sallow complexion, sour belching, poor digestion and bloated abdomen. The patient is sensitive to draughts of air yet wants to be fanned. Dr. George Royal thinks many physicians err in giving **Cinchona too low in symptomatic anaemia when much time has elapsed since the drain was made on the system. He finds the 30th. productive of better results than the lower preparations. **NATrum muriaticum is also a remedy for anaemic and debilitated conditions due to loss of fluids, especially in women who suffer from menstrual disorders and in chronic cases with a dead, dirty-looking skin. **Chininum arsenicosum is sometimes prescribed for anaemia, not, however, on the totality ;of the symptoms, but because it is said to be "good for it." It has been found curative in certain cases ;of pernicious anaemia. **Acetic acid suits anaemic nursing women, with waxy skin, and thirst. #Calcarea carbonica. [Calc] Almost any of the deeper acting constitutional remedies may be of use in anaemic and debilitated conditions, and especially are the **Calcareas useful. Thus we have **Calcarea phosphorica as the remedy for the "green sickness," chlorosis of young girls, with a complexion like wax, alabaster lips and ears, a bright eye, and when they smile or laugh it is a sickly one. The face sometimes has a true greenish hue or a sallow one. In such cases the menses are
apt to be too early and then calcarea phosphorica is well indicated for this condition. **Calcarea carbonica is indicated by the psoric, scrofulous or tubercular diathesis and the general symptoms of the drug, by disgust for meat, craving for sour and indigestible things, swelling of abdomen, vertigo and palpitation ;on going upstairs. The patient is in a state of worry. Constantly imagining calamities. **Alumina is also a remedy for chlorosis due to the scrofulous diathesis and from improper nourishment, such as occurs in some children brought up on artificial foods. **Nux vomica, too, may be indicated in anaemic conditions when due to gastro-intestinal derangements. **Plumbum has been recommended for inveterate chlorosis with obstinate constipation. **Alumina also, being an antipsoric, is the remedy for anaemic conditions about puberty, with abnormal craving for indigestible substances, such as slate pencils, chalk, etc. #Arsenicum. [Ars] This being a direct poison to the red blood corpuscles takes first rank in cases of pernicious anaemia or in anaemias due to a malarial of ;toxic influence. Dr.Blackley, of England, reported four cases of pernicious anaemia cured with small doses of the remedy. It does not correspond to simple anaemias so well. It indications are ***excessive prostration considerable oedema, violent and irregular palpitation,marked appetite for acids and brandy, ***extreme anxiety and rapid emaciation . There is irritable stomach and intense thirst. When the allopathic school uses **Arsenic as a blood tonic, and Dr.Bartholow says, "it is one of the most valuable remedies in the treatment of chlorosis and anaemia," it does so on strictly Homoeopathic principles. **Picric acid. The extreme prostration of pernicious anaemia, with a heavy tired feeling all over the body, burning pains along the spine and aggravation from excitement indicate this remedy. #Helonias. [Helon] An excellent remedy in anaemia and chlorosis. It suits especially anaemia from prolonged haemorrhage in women enervated by indolence and luxury, or such as are worn out with hard work; they are too tired to sleep and the strained muscles burn and ache A characteristic modality is that the patient is better when the attention is engaged, hence better when the doctor comes. This anaemia is associated with disturbances in the urinary and sexual organs. Tired,anaemic, backachey females need **Helonias, "It is one of the best blood makers that we have." (E. G. Jones.)
#Aletris. [Alet] Chlorosis. "The **China of the uterine organs." (Hale.) Tired dull, heavy,confused. Debility of females from protracted illness; no organic disease. Power and energy of mind and body are weakened. #Secale. [Sec] This remedy produces a progressives general anaemia. It is shown by the peculiar cachexia of anaemia, pale, bloodless, jaundiced color. By its effect on the blood corpuscles it produces a general anaemia, threatening not only the life of a part, but vitiating the whole life of the bodily economy. It is a sort of a meschanical anaemia. #Natrum muriaticum. [Nat-m] This is one of our best remedies in anaemic conditions. There is paleness, and, in spite of the fact that the patient eats well, there is emaciation. There are attacks of throbbing headache and dyspnoea, especially on going up stairs, constipation ands depression of spirits, and consolation aggravates. With these symptoms there is much palpitation, fluttering and intermittent action of the heart. The hypochondriasis in these cases is marked. Scanty mesnstruation is frequently an indicating symptom. **Kali carbonicum is one of the most important remedies in anaemia, weak heart, sweats backache, especially with female complaints.
#Amyl nitrite. [Aml-n] In acute attacks of this disease **Amyl nitrite is usually the remedy given, and it is given by olfaction of the crude substance, Its action is to produces a speedy dilation of the capillaries in the upper part of the body, the face becomes flushed, the heart's action is rapid and tumultuous, there is a feeling as of a band around the head, constriction about the heart and oppressed breathing. It is very useful in relieving the paroxysm, and if the symptoms correspond it will be found useful at other times. **Aconite is especially useful during a attack of vaso-motor angina from exposures to cold, with intesnse anxiety. Coldness pain radiating from head in all directions, with numbness, tingling, paraesthesia. #Glonoine [Glon] or **Nitro glycerine is a very similar remedy. It has been proved and its action is fairly well known.
#Spigelia [Sep] is a useful remedy in anguishing substernal pain which radiates to neck and arms. **Cuprum has a slow pulse. the heart's action suddenly ceases. **Kali carbonicum has stitches from heart to scapula and there is great weakness. where there is an uneasy feeling about the heart. radiating over the heart and down left arm. a feeling of fulness in region of heart. Staphisagria and Tabacum have proved useful. **Arsenicum has also proved useful especially in preventing the paroxysms. An other remedy to be thought of in tobacco heart is Kalmia. **Kalmia has shooting pains above the heart to the scapula. #Cimicifuga [Cimic] has pains radiating all over the chest and a sensation as if the left arm were bound to the side The patient may become unconscious.

A sickly smell from the mouth is characteristic of the remedy. It is especially useful in the obstinate diarrhoeas of unhealthy infants in the 3x dilution. [Merc] Straining at stool is the great characteristic of Mercurius.

The thirst with Cantharis is unquenchable. and it comes in especially well when the days are warm and the nights are cold. **Ferrum phosphoricum comes in cases less acute than **Aconite.

Useful in glaucoma with periodical exacerbation of the pain which is intense and burning. **Nitric acid is often indispensable in ophthalmia neonatorum, but its main use is in superficial ulcers of the cornea with splinter-like pains. It is also considered to be one of our best remedies in corneal opacities; also **Cannabis sativa must not be forgotten. **Digitalis, according to Copeland, must not be forgotten in blepharitis, and Hahnemann mentions it in Meibomian inflammation. **Sepia. In asthenopic conditions we have a number of remedies and among them is **Sepia, which especially suits asthenopia from uterine disease and sluggish, scrofulous, sub-acute cases. There is dryness of the eyes in the evening, the lids may be scaly and there will be drooping of the lids, worse in the morning and evening and in hot weather, relieved by cold bathing. There is blurring of slight and asthenopia from seminal losses, sudden vanishing of sight. It has also been used in trachoma and cataract. It is perhaps, the chief remedy in vernal conjunctivitis
; the morning and evening aggravation is its great characteristic. **Natrum muriaticum. A fine remedy in asthenopia, there is weakness of the internal recti, the eyes feel stiff while moving them, letters run together. It is also a valuable remedy in scrofulous ophthalmia with acrid tears and spasmodic closure of lids, in ulcers with inflamed eyes agglutinatted in the morning, and in fistula lachrymalis. It suits scrofulous children having eruptions on border of hairy scalp. **Artemesia. Asthenopia due to muscular defects and errors of accommodation. Colored light produces dizziness. **Cina. Asthenopia, on attempting to read, letters become blurred and a cloud over the eye. **Ruta. Is also a most a valuable remedy for affections of the eyes from overwork, where every tissue of the eye is irritable. Eyes burn, feel hot like balls of fire. **Onosmodium is a very useful remedy in eye strain, with dull, heavy , sore, aching eyes. No inflammatory troubles-- but patient is troubled with headaches and weakness. Dr. A. B. Norton finds the remedy gives prompt relief to many annoying symptoms. Santonine. Hyperaemic conditions from continuous fine work, as in seamstresses. Also to be remembered in cataract. Objects look yellow. **Ammoniacum gummi stands between **Belladonna and Ruta in asthenopia; the eyes smart and burn, especially when used at night by light. **Agaricus. Asthenopia from prolonged strain with great twitching of the palpebral and ocular muscles. **Agaricus 12 has, in the experience of Dr. E. T. Allen, of Chicago, cleared up several cases of cataract. **Asarum. Eyes feel stiff and burn or feel cold, better when in cold air, or bathed in cold water, worse in the sunlight. #Graphites. [Graph] Phlyctenular ophthalmia. It is one of our best remedies in vesicles on the cornea and ulceration in scrofulous children; there is intense burning, lachrymation; the canthi crack and bleed. Scrofulous ophthalmia with tendency to wild hairs. According to Norton this remedy comes nearer being a specific in blepharitis than any other. **Borax, also , with soreness along lids. **Graphites is the great remedy in "gummed up, photophobia eyes." and it is most useful in blepharitis, especially in eczematous subjects or following measles. **Petroleum is also a remedy in blepharitis when the lids are red, raw and moist. Hepar sulphur has especially throbbing in and about the eye, formation of pus, hypopyon, styes, cannot bear the eyes to be touched, pimples, great photophobia and relief of pain of by warmth. **Hepar is one of our most important remedies for conjunctivitis, especially in cases that do not yield to **Aconite or Belladonna, following these remedies well. **Alumina. Asthenopia from irritated conjunctiva, granular lids, loss of power of the internal rectus; also
**Conium, Ruta and Natrum muriaticum . Dryness of the eyes also, **Crocus, Berberis, Natrum carbonicum and **Natrum sulphuricum. **Alumina is a remedy for ophthalmia senilis; its well-known power of producing dryness of the mucous membranes is seen here. After Operations on the Eyes. -------------------------------**Aconite. Principal remedy. **Ignatia. Violent pains in temples. **Rhus tox. Pains shooting into head. **Bryonia. Pains in head accompanied by vomiting. **Asarum. Jerking pains with vomiting and diarrhoea. **Crocus. Hammering and jerking in eye. **Thuja. Stinging pains in temples. **Senega. Promotes the absorption of lens debris. **Strontium. Objects appear as if tinged with blood.
#Nux vomica [Nux-v] is a remedy influencing both in glandular secretion and muscular tone of the digestive organs. Among causes of dyspepsia are mental overwork, sedentary occupations, high living and dissipation, and these are all keynote symptoms of **Nux vomica. This drug will be thought of when the patient is "cranky" and irascible, when he is drowsy and stupid in the evening, feels miserable in the morning and has a dull frontal headache. This headache is a constant element in Nux disease. With **Nux the food and drink taste normal, and the gastric and abdominal disturbances do not commence immediately after eating as under **Lycopodium and Nux moschata, but come on half an hour or so after meals, especially the dinner. There is often nausea, empty retching, scanty, sour or bilious vomiting, water brash, sour, bitter, metallic or putrid taste, and there is vertigo. ALl these symptoms are aggravated in the morning, and there is also an after dinner aggravation. Headache usually attends the gastric disturbances of **Nux. In the flatulent and pituitous dyspepsia of drunkards **Nux usually precedes **Carbo vegetabilis and Sulphur. **Kali bichromicum is more often indicated in the dyspepsia of beer drinkers. It is well indicated in dyspepsia when there is a feeling as if digestion had stopped after a meal eaten with relish and the food lies like a load; the distress comes sooner than the with **Nux vomica. The appetite is impaired, the patient does not want even his accustomed stimuli, or there may be an abnormal hunger, and this abnormal hunger usually
a pure gastralgia. Waterbrash is more characteristic of **Nux. **Nux has also gastric irritability with pains radiating in various directions from the epigastrium which are worse in the morning. and with **Kreosote. **Bismuth has burning and lancinating pains of a purely nervous character. and when **Nux fails to act perhaps the best remedy is **Carbo vegetabilis. Dyce Brown finds that when the gastric symptoms are prominent the lower dilutions act better. the front half of the tongue may be clean. Atonic dyspepsia with a putrid taste in the mouth in the morning compelling the patient to rinse out the mouth. **Nux has an abnormal thirst. [Carb-v] This is a putrid remedy. The stomach is sensitive to pressure and to tight clothing. and there is distension even after a light meal and a very characteristic sensation of a lump or a load in the stomach. This is a symptom of a misused stomach. but **Lycopodium does not have the intestinal irritability of **Nux. The tongue of **Nux is coated. which it usually does some twenty-four to thirty-six hours previous. **Calcarea carbonica has a tenderness at the pit of the stomach. and this coating is more on the posterior part." In the distress after eating we must compare **Nux with Abies nigra. with spasmodic vomiting. and the patient will say:"If I could only vomit I would feel much better. which has a pain coming on immediately after eating .precedes an attack of dyspepsia. #Carbo vegetabilis. the digestion will be slow and imperfect. with a desire for beer and bitters. **Lycopodium has a pain in the pit of the stomach when the hypochondria are pressed and a pain in the hyponchondria when the pit of the stomach is pressed. **Mercurius has a deathly faintness at the pit of the stomach. **Carbo is putrid and **Sulphuric acid is sour. which has the symptom that three or four hours after eating the patient vomits. This oppresses the brain and soon develops flatulence. there is fulness even after a light meal. gone sensation in the stomach not relieved by .M. while heartburn is more characteristic of **Pulstilla. The nausea is especially after a meal. The eructations of **Nux are painful. but if constipation be present the higher ones are to be preferred. bitter or sour. Sulphur and Natrum carbonicum have an all gone sensation at the pit of the stomach worse at 11 A. which attack may sometimes be avoided by attention to diet as soon as this symptom of abnormal hunger appears. and will be found most useful in the putrid variety of dyspepsia. there will be a weight in the stomach and intestines and a faint. and an aversion to coffee will strongly indicate **Nux. Dr. **Sepia. It acts better when given in the evening. white usually. The pains of **Arsenicum are burning and the dyspepsia of **Pulstilla is especially after rich and fat food. When **carbo is indicated the patient will be below par.
The eructations are rancid. crossness. The symptoms are worse from fat. high living or from eating tainted meats. while in **Lycopodium it is more to constipation. as in **Nux moschata.M. **Carbo is a valuable remedy in chronic gastric catarrh and condition based upon degeneration and induration. sour or putrid. there is slow digestion and the patients faints easily. like **Carbo vegetabilis. but after a few mouthfuls there is a sense of repletion. chest and abdomen. There is great distension of the stomach and bowels. The distension calling for **China is painful and only momentarily relieved by belching. irritability. Another distinguishing feature between **Carbo and Lycopodium is. There is also a sensation as if . There is great craving for salt and other things that always make him sick. and they are worse after late suppers. being a putrid remedy. digestion being slow. there is depression o vital power. There is heaviness.eating. which is temporarily relieved by belching. [China] **China is useful in cases where. than **China has. fulness and sleepiness after eating. and that of **Lycopodium more in the intestines. that in Carbo the tendency is more to diarrhoea. and haemorrhoids worse after a spree. where. **Carbo. fish. vinegar or cabbage. ice cream. oysters. and milk increases the flatulence. just the time of the aggravation of **Lycopodium. the food putrefies before it digests. it is suitable for the bad effects of debauchery and high living. with paroxymal and crampy pains which force the patient to bend double. We may find here the symptom that the patient wants to be fanned. is especially useful for the effects of over-eating. It has more burning and flatulence than **Nux vomica. but here it seems to be especially limited to the loss of animal fluids. which is worse by motion and the erect position and from 4 to 6 P. The flatulence of **Carbo vegetabilis is more in the stomach. There is frontal headache worse in the morning and in a warm room. There is violent ***burning in the stomach . and is still further like the former in the sensation of satiety after a few mouthfuls of food. but not so much as in **Nux moschata and Lycopodium. the stomach feels heavy. Remember that **Carbo has a more upward pressure of gas on the diaphragm. There is a ***burning in the stomach extending to the back and along the spine to the interscapular region. like **Nux. It comes in after **Nux. and not so much pressure down on the intestines as **Nux vomica has. There are sour or bitter eructations and the flatus is offensive. Like **Lycopodium and Colchicum it has tympanites.. causing distress of breathing. Flatulence gives rise to asthmatic breathing and dyspnoea. #China officinalis. Coffee disagrees. and that it is more applicable to putrid dyspepsias and the chronic dyspepsia of ***old people. though.
**Nux moschata also has distress immediately upon eating.and he leaves the tables with his hunger only momentarily satisfied. but the immediate distress after eating belongs to **Lycopodium. digestion is slow and difficult. and the **Lycopodium patient is almost unconquerable sleepy after eating. however. **Pulsatilla has this. We may also have attacks of ravenous hunger under **Lycopodium. after all. and vomiting when it does occur is sour. but in a less degree than **China. not all the times as in **Lachesis. which is worse at night and after meals. but lies a long time in the stomach. **China does not have the rancid belching with burning. There is a great accumulation of flatus in the stomach and intestines-rather more in the intestines. When **China is well indicated there will be a yellow diarrhoea. Now this sensation of satiety is found under **Arsenicum . from the flatus presses rather downwards. In cases where the food does not digest. the patient prefers hot drinks. sour bleching. **China is the remedy. Many times these symptoms of **China are caused by drinking tea to excess. causing eructations and finally is vomited undigested. hypochondriacal patients. The patient is worse after late dinners.the food had lodged in the oesophagus behind the sternum. Here it is seen that the distress is ***immediately upon eating. In **Nux. quite similar to **Nux vomica. which. **Nux from fitful intestinal action. the distension lasting into the night. as in **Pulsatilla and **Anacardium. Sepia and **Sulphur. but after eating a small quantity of food he feels so full and bloated that he has to force himself to swallow another mouthful. A grand characteristic of **Lycopodium is this: the patient goes to meals with a vigorous appetite. there is also also painful swelling at the pit of the stomach and intolerance of tight clothing. Carbo vegetabilis. will cause a headache as in **Cactus grandiflorus. #Lycopodium [Lyc] is especially suitable for chronic congestion and catarrhal conditions of the stomach in patients with liver and gouty troubles. especially the colon--and this presses upwards and causes difficulty of breathing just as we found under **Carbo vegetabilis. China. **Lycopodium is. not a half hour after. for it has also sour taste. Both have constipation with ineffectual urging to stool. which is not common. **Lycopodium from contraction of the sphincter ani. **Sepia is also similar in some respects to . Bleching of gas in **Lycopodium does ***not relieve. but it is especially characteristic of **Lycopodium. There is intolerance of pressure about the waist after meals. if not satisfied. which will distinguish it from Carbo vegetabilis. The boiled-egg sensation of **Abies nigra is lower down. making him restless and wakeful. **Lycopodium is especially useful in the atonic and acid forms of dyspepsia.
foul eructations. pastry or mixed diets. firstly . there is acidity and heart burn. [Puls] No remedy in the old school corresponds to **Pulsatilla.and which are relieved by eructations or the passage of flatus. Dryness of the mouth. but **Sepia has a sensations of emptiness in the epigastrium while that of **Lycopodium is repletion. Remember its power of acting on mucous membranes and increasing the quantity of mucous formed by them. About one or. being here similar to **Anacardium. which is similar to **Argentum nitricum. worse from heat. Nearly always in dyspeptic troubles calling for **Pulsatilla there will be headache which are supraorbital and worse in the evening and from warmth. over acid and loaded with lithates or uric acid crystals and it is not so offensive as that of **Sepia. This mucus in the stomach easily undergoes decomposition and acts as a frequent upon the food. . sour or putrid. food tastes bitter. The circulation is disturbed and the patient is always chilly and. the mental condition are not at all similar. **Lycopodium has also as an important stomach symptom. two hours after eating there is a feeling of fulness and weight in the epigastrium which is relieved for a short time by eating. the sleep is dreamy and the patient awakes tired and listless. To distinguish between **Nux and Pulsatilla is rather easy. as remarked by Hahnemann. being here like **Ipecac. The urine is high colored. **Pulsatilla. or from chilling the stomach with ice cream or ice water. After meals there is violent palpitation. The patient is mentally active and this keeps him awake for hours after retiring. and the pain arises from the irritating nature of the contents of the stomach rather than from mere bulk and weight which produces the **Nux pain. desire for sweets. **Lachesis desires oysters. The tongue is coated with thick. pork. white fur. there is waterbrash and eructations tasting of food and absence of thirst only a desire to moisten the mouth. #Pulsatilla. The characteristic of the flatulence of **Pulsatilla is that it moves about and often cause painful sensations about the chest. putrid taste in the morning on awakening and a sensation as if food had lodged ***under the sternum are characteristics of this remedy. more often. the action of the heart is apt to be irregular and it is difficult to convince such patients sometimes that they have not heart disease. being here like **Arsenic and Carbo vegetabilis. the patient in **Pulsatilla with digestive troubles in despondent. There is craving for lemonade and aversion to fats which aggravate. acidity. rough.**Lycopodium. is especially useful for the dyspepsias arising from fatty foods. There is often a constant taste of food in the mouth as if it had in the stomach a long time after eating it. strange to say. ***A bad taste is a special indication for **Pulsatilla. hence nausea.
on going to stool the desire passes away. [Anac] With this remedy there is a sinking feeling which comes on about two hours after eating. which **Nux does not have. but the symptoms agreeing it may. Petroleum has among its prominent symptoms ravenous hunger and gastralgia relieved by eating. **Antimonium crudum is especially indicated in those who have overloaded the stomach and have eructations tasting of food. It pictures atonic gastric catarrh. **Chelidonium is indicated by its prominent liver symptoms. for really after eating he is worse. of course. be used in men. **Pulsatilla is worse in the evening. and it is especially called for in long-lingering gastric troubles with a great deal of nausea. and although eating relieves it is only a temporary relief.and especially a tongue thickly coated white. Mentally **Anacardium has a great deal of hypochondriasis. which **Nux lacks. Such patients become true "lunch fiends." There are three other drugs that have prominent relief from eating. confusion of mind and loss of memory. It has nausea of a loathing variety. **Nux is despondent. #Anacardium. **Pulsatilla has more heartburn and **Nux more waterbrash. here we have the characteristic symptom of a plug in the rectum. Another distinguishing feature between **Nux and Anacardium. **Nux is worse in the morning and after dinner. is the paretic state of the rectum in **Anacardium. and a dull pain in the stomach extending to the spine. [Sep] **Sepia is more often found useful in women. From other drugs **Pulsatilla is easily distinguished . It is a remedy which has . however. the symptoms returning. and the symptom that the patient has to pound his back to start the gas is sometimes met with. too. vomiting. and lachrymose. depressed vitality is always prominent. but at the same time irascible and domineering. after pickles. especially at night. then. Chelidonium and Graphites. The patient is hungry most of the time. sour things etc. food is repugnant. and a great urging to stool as in **Nux. **Anacardium also has some flatulence. #Sepia. and increasing in intensity until the patient is forced to eat again for relief. The gastralgia of **Anacardium is relieved by eating. but. vomiting predominates. The clean tongue and intense nausea of **Ipecac will separate that remedy. and there are often tasteless or occasional sour eructations. which should distinguish.apprehensive. They are **Petroleum. Dyspepsia accompanied with diarrhoea will sometimes indicate **Petroleum. that of **Argentum nitricum is worse from eating. The great characteristic of the remedy is the ***great relief after eating. **Anacardium has violent gastralgia. unlike **Nux.
The most characteristic symptom. Lycopodium and Sepia. even mention food and he vomits.increases the acidity of the stomach and causes vomiting. in that while it always deposits a lithic acid sediment it adheres tenaciously to the side and bottom of the vessel and is offensive. while under **Sulphur sweets cause a sour stomach and heartburn. which is not relieved by eating. The **Sulphur patient also craves alcohol. **Robinia causes . Phosphoricum and Sulphur this gone sensation is always better after meals. There is nausea at the smell or sight of the food. the "cat nap" like sleep. but in **Sepia the face is apt to have the characteristic yellow saddle across the nose. the patient can hardly wait for meals and is forced to get up at night to eat. The urine of **Sepia may help to decide between it and **Lycopodium and **Kali carbonicum. #Sulphur. or else there is loss of appetite. which is like **Phosphorus. It is aggravated from starchy food like both **Natrum carbonicum and **Natrum sulphuricum. There is a white-coated tongue and a sour or putrid taste in the mouth. contrary to custom. he also has aversion to meat. This is similar only to Carbo animals. congested liver. for in **Anacardium. and **Colchicum has nausea at the thought of the food. [Sulph] **Sulphur is a wonderful remedy in dyspepsia. the aversion to washing etc." is a good **Sulphur indication. The abdomen of **Sepia is flatulent and the liver is sore and has sharp pains in it. There is a ravenous desire for sweets which make him sick. however . If we have the general characteristics of **Sulphur present. The Sepia patient is worse in the forenoon and evening. for it is relieved by lying on the right side. and that is **Argentum nitricum. the choice will be easy. too. the hot head and cold feet. but here again **Sepia is different from all others. constipation.and it has a feeling of satiety after eating a small quantity of food. there are hot flashes as in **Sulphur. Natrum carbonicum. It has bitter or sour taste and putrid eructations. " Drinks much.the vehemence and irascibility of Nux and the tearful despondency of **Pulsatilla. which has a diarrhoea caused by it. is a feeling of goneness in the pit of the stomach. and there is great longing for acids and pickles. and like **Nux. with hot hands and cold feet. the early morning diarrhoea. but its value is seldom appreciated. eats little. It may be useful in dyspepsias from the overuse of tobacco. being in the former symptom like Carbo vegetabilis and in the latter like **Carbo vegetabilis. It is useful in the flatulent dyspepsia of those who drink heavily.. and milk. and also the aversion to household affairs more marked than in **Natrum muriaticum. the hot flashes. only one other remedy has this. and when he eats he feels puffed up.

The gone. gnawing. **Capsicum is very useful in gastric hyperchlorhydria.M. circumscribed pain is characteristic. Dr. spitting up of blood without nausea is also common. and is white more along the middle.

Rapid loss of flesh and anaemia are also symptoms. there is much pain and burning. . frequent acid eructations. a verified symptom. and they relieve momentarily. indurations. and here it also extends to the bowels.

The eyes agglutinate and the discharge is purulent. of Brussels. considers **Arsenicum almost specific in measles. as the two remedies seem to differ in intensity only. The individual symptom of each remedy will differentiate them. The throat is swollen and there is catarrhal deafness.

The first of these is **Arsenicum. #Arsenicum. The fever has subsided or entirely disappeared. The excoriating discharge from the eyes will distinguish from **Allium cepa. croupy cough. and a brightness of the eyes despite the catarrhal condition is characteristic. and it is one of our best remedies for laryngeal affections. but loosens a little in the daytime. It is useful where the skin is dusky and the rash does not come out. It corresponds to the insidious phenomena of severe epidemics of measles. There is coryza and profuse lachrymation. There is much predisposition to earache and sometimes sickness at the stomach. in malignant type or black or haemorrhagic measles we have two or three important remedies. and one of the best remedies to remove all sequelae of the disease. may prove useful. . or is purplish when it does appear.

When the eruption does not come out properly. it is a teasing. the child is hot. For the chest complications a number of remedies may come into use. rattling of mucus. or runs an irregular course. **Sabadilla is the remedy when among the catarrhal symptoms there is violent sneezing attended with a frontal headache. In a case calling for it you will find these symptoms: non-appearance of the rash. titillating cough. where there is intense heat .#Stramonium. **Sticta. =MENINGITIS. **Bryonia is useful when chest symptoms appear upon a retardation or a recession of the eruption. twitching of muscles or of single limbs or if the spasms are preceded by deep and violent coughing and oppressed respiration. #Bryonia. All these may be indicated in measles. and on falling asleep cries out as if frightened . bluish or purplish face. there are a few remedies which play a most important role. There will be great difficulty in breathing. **Zincum has the same awakening from sleep as if terrified. It will corresponds to some epidemics and should not be overlooked. etc. **Rumex with its short tickling bronchial cough worse from cold air. there is soreness of the limbs and body. drowsiness and twitching. but its symptoms are move violent than those of **Stramonium and the face instead of being red is more apt to be bluish.

It has the same terror on awakening. the child seems too weak to develop the eruption. [Bry] This remedy comes in well when the rash appears late. **Stramonium is one of these. if there be present an incessant dry and spasmodic cough. Too slow development of the eruption with chest symptoms calls for it. **Cuprum is indicated in convulsion due to recession of the eruption.
of the body, strong pulse, bright red face and delirium, where the cerebral irritation is marked by intense pain in the head, starting out of sleep crying out, grinding teeth. For simple meningitis, not the tubercular form, when everything is acute and intense; when effusion commences, however, it ceases to be the remedy. **Aconite. Meningitis from heat of the sun's rays after long exposure thereto, or cerebral congestions from anger. It is only useful at the onset. **Fear is a marked symptom. **Veratrum viride. Intense cerebral congestion, rapid pulse, tendency to convulsion, followed by prostration. Elliot considers **Veratrum viride in the lower potencies our best remedy in acute meningitis. Coldness of the surface loss of consciousness, dilated pupils, labored,slow, irregular pulse. **Gelsemium. Is hardly homoeopahtic to pain as its action is wholly motor, but it may be indicated in meningitis by its general symptoms. It is less often indicated and hence less valuable than **Belladonna. Yet Spalding has used the remedy as a basic one in the cerebro-spinal variety with uniform success, losing but one case. #Bryonia. [Bry] Suits well cerebral effusions with a benumbed sensorium. The following will be useful indications upon which to prescribe **Bryonia. ***Constant chewing motion with the mouth; when moved screams with pain; child stupid, abdomen distended; tongue white, pains are most sharp and stitching, and the patient drinks greedily; there is a livid flushed face, high temperature, copious sweats. Thus it is seen that **Bryonia produces a characteristic image of meningitis and suits especially cases caused by suppressed eruption. #Apis mellifica. [Apis] Here nervous agitation predominates ; there are shrill cries, stabbing pains ; the child puts its hand to its head and screams. There is an oedematous face, scanty urine, and the patient is thirstless, it suits especially infantile cases and especially the tubercular form due to an developed eruption. **Cicuta is useful in the irritative stage when there are general convulsions, twitching in fingers and unconsciouness. It also markedly controls the effusion. The head is spasmodically drawn back with stiff neck. Violent jerks in any part of the body. Strangles on drinking, dilated pupils and staring look, trismus; one of our best remedies, having a fine clinical record.
#Helleborus. [Hell] Mental torpor marks this drug ; a sensorial apathy, there is want of reaction. It corresponds to a later stage of the disease, when effusion has taken place ; then symptoms such as wrinkling of one arm and one leg are indicative of **Helleborus. There are shooting pains in the head, sudden crying out, screaming, boring head into the pillow. The cries have a most pitiful sound. **Camphora. In the fulminant variety where the poison falls on the patient like a thunderbolt and collapse approaches speedily. The patient is cold, pale and pulseless, eyes sunken, face livid. Patient cold, but does not want to be covered. **Iodoform 6X has proved useful in O'Connor's hands , and some remarkable cases were reported in the North American Journal of Homoeopathy a few years ago as having been cured by inunctions of **Iodoform cerate into the scalp. Some very hopeless cases were thus cured. Dr. Martin, of Pittsburgh, used the 2X with success. It is also endorsed by Boericke and Clarke. #Zincum metallicum. [Zinc] This remedy corresponds to the subacute form, especially if tubercular and due to suppressed eruptions. Febrile disturbance is absent or slight, there are marked twitching jerkings and hyperaesthesia of all the senses and skin, and tremulousness of the feet. At the beginning there are sharp lancinating pains and great exhaustion of nerve force. The 6X trituration is recommended. **Sulphur is useful in tubercular meningitis; the child lies in a stupor with cold sweat on forehead , jerking of limbs, spasms and suppressed urine. Retrocessed eruptions may be the cause. **Tuberculinum and **Calcarea carbonica may prove useful remedies. They corresponds to a basic or psoric taint which favors the development of the disease. Clarke advises Bacillinum 100th, which he claims is very prompt in its action. **Cuprum suits cases marked with violent convulsions, thumbs clenched,loud screaming,face pale with blue lips. No remedy equals it in these conditions, but it is of more use in the later stages.
=MENTAL CONDITIONS AND DERANGEMENTS.
#Belladonna. [Bell] The three great remedies of the Solanacae family have an important
action on the mental state, and are possibly more often thought of and indicated in mental affections than other remedies. Belladonna is a remedy for delirious states, and must be given where there is wildness, restlessness, and a desire to cut or tear the clothing.
