SOME REMARKS ON HOMEOPATHIC ARNICA, CACTUS AND GELSEMIUM
George: Do you remember from the conference last year where the man was describing that he had an accident and took Ara. It was interesting. He said that it affected him very much. After two days he started to have a severe, constricted pain in the chest. Arn. did not work any more and he took some Chinese acupuncture which caused improvement. What was the remedy which he should have taken? First he took Arn. because he had bruises and the pain went away. But then this constriction developed which was very severe and he had to take painkillers. Arn. is not indicated anymore, of course, but Cact. will act like magic.
Al has shown me a very interesting description of what is going on in a Gels. case. There was internal tremblings and pleural symptoms. The trembling was "up and down and around".
Responses : Gels. is not listed under "internal trembling" in the repertory.
George : Yes, it is interesting.
When I described Gels. I told you about how he would be before going to court There would be internal trembling and loose bowel movements. Didn't I have that that impression for you ?
Responses : Yes.
