Generally, homoeopaths suggest one of the three remedies for distension of the abdomen: Carbo Veg for the

fullness and distension in the upper part, Lycopodium for the distension of the right lower abdomen and China when the whole of abdomen is tense. Nux Vomica is very useful when the intestinal movement is sluggish. Carbo Veg will be more appropriate if the patient passes offensive wind. In the Carbo Veg patient, there is a spasm at the pyloric end of the stomach due to hyperacidity. The food becomes stagnant and decays. The stomach becomes distended with foul smelling gas. China is useful in abdominal distension only where other signs of China are also present, i.e., patient has dryness in constitution and generally displays signs of the ill effects of Malaria. Sometimes, the wind or gas becomes trapped in the intestines due to a lack of digestive secretions from the stomach, liver, pancreas and the intestines.

It restores the intestinal mobility in transient as well as established condition. Sulphur works for prolonged periods and Aconite works temporarily. Nux Vomica is between the two.

Ringworm (i.e. formation of circle of minute spots) may affect the scalp and cause loss of hair. This is called Alopecia, in which bunches of hair fall in the form of circles. Both Tuberculinum and Bacillinum are useful in the treatment of this condition. According to

Picric Acid is also a very effective treatment for alopecia and ringworm.Dr. the basic cause of alopecia is tuberculosis and he suggests that anybody with this condition must be treated with Bacillinum or Tuberculinum. . Burnett.
