The main idea characterizing Staphisagria is SUPPRESSION OF EMOTIONS, particularly those centering around romantic relationships. Staphysagria patients are very excitable, very easily aroused; Their problems are then compounded when they do not allow natural outlets for their arousal. It can manifest in basically two ways which are typified by women and men. In women, the emotional suppression results in a state of sweet passivity and resignation – a kind of timidity. In men, this sensitivity may not be so obvious; to the outside world they may appear masculine, even hard, but inside they experience the same kind of delicate sensitivity and romantic vulnerability.
The Staphysagria woman is rather delicate and highly strung. She is a nice person, very considerate of others. She is a person who feels her problems belong to her alone. She would never presume to be a burden to others. At the outset of the homoeopathic interview, the Staphysagria patient offers very little information. She tends to talk only about the specific problems. It is not that she is a closed person in the true sense; she is merely reluctant to become burdensome to the prescriber. The Staphysagria woman is not read more [...]

ٹھندے خشک موسم کی دوا ہے۔
نکس وامیکا دراصل شاہوں، شہنشاؤں، شہزادوں اور سورماؤں کا خاندان ہے۔ اگر تاریخ پر نظر دوڑائیں تو رومن ایمپائر کی مثال نکس پر بہت فٹ بیٹھتی ہے۔ یہ لوگ بڑے جنگجو، مہماتی، عیاش اور بے خطر تھے۔ میٹریا میڈیکا کی پولی کریسٹ دواؤں میں اس کا درجہ باشاہوں کا سا ہے۔ اینایم چودھری کے بقول اگر انسانی آبادی کو کردار اور رویے کی بنا پر تقسیم کیا جائے تو نکس کے حصہ میں دو تہائی آ جائے۔یہ لوگ جس شعبہ زندگی میں بھی ہوں اپنا نمایاں مقام بنا لیتے ہیں۔اپنے مقصد کے حصول کے لیے، اپنا ٹارگٹ حاصل کرنے کے لیے انہیں چاہے کتنی بھی قیمت چکانی پڑے دریغ نہیں کرتے۔

ہمارے جسم کےمتعدد افعال ایک خود کار نظام کے ماتحت ہیں۔ مثلاً دِل کا دھڑکنا، سانس کا چلنا، جسم کا درجۂ حرارت ایک خاص ڈگری تک برقرار رہنا وغیرہ۔ ان افعال کی ایک مربوط نظام کے تحت انجام دہی اس بات کا اعلان ہوتا ہے کہ ہم ایک صحت مند زندگی گزار رہے ہیں۔ ایک صحت مند فرد کا دِل ایک منٹ میں70سے 80مرتبہ دھڑکتا ہے۔ اسی طرح چاہے کوئی گرم صحرائی علاقے کا مکین ہو یا پھر برفانی پہاڑوں کا رہایشی، اُس کے جسم کا نارمل درجۂ حرارت 37ڈگری سینٹی گریڈ تک رہتا ہے۔ ہم ایک منٹ میں 14سے 16مرتبہ سانس لیتے ہیں۔ بہت گہری نیند، حتیٰ کہ کومےکی حالت میں بھی جسم کے یہ افعال اسی طرح انجام پاتے ہیں۔

Arsenicum Album (ars.) is a classic remedy known in its basic outlines to all homoeopaths. Originally proven by Hahnemann himself, Ars. has been exhaustively described in every Materia Medica since. The classic description in Kent's Materia Medica covers all the essentials in both the acute and chronic states: Anxiety, Restlessness, Aggravated by Cold, Worse 1 - 2 p.m. and 1 - 2 a.m. , Thirsty for Sips, Periodicity, Alternations of Symptoms, Ulcerations, Burning PAINS. A mere cataloguing of symptoms can be misleading in actual prescribing. However, unless the image is rounded out by a understanding of the essential dynamic process and stages of development of the remedy, particularly in comparison with other similar remedies.
The essential process underlying the Arsenicum pathology is a deep-seated INSECURITY. From this insecurity springs most of the key manifestations known in Arsenicum. This insecurity is not a mere social dynamic, but more essentially a sense of being vulnerable and defenceless in a seemingly hostile universe. This insecurity dominates the Arsenicum personality even from the earliest stages.
Arising from the insecurity is the Arsenicum DEPENDENCY on other read more [...]
I prefer to speak of the constitution of our remedies instead of constitutional remedies. You will agree with me that Sulphur, Calcarea carbonica, Lycopodium, and Thuja should be mentioned first, if I am to speak of constitutional remedies, which I shall try to present in pictures.
Sulphur is the most important, the main remedy in Hahnemann’s psora treatment. It is the best agent where there is lack of reaction of the body. This lack of reaction is, of course, more or less dependent upon constitutional conditions. It is therefore indispensable also in acute conditions, and the chief remedy in diseases following suppressed skin troubles. Farrington thinks it is a racial remedy for negroes, because they are widely suffering from scrofulosis. The constitutional indication for Sulphur is found in those who have all kinds of skin affections, unpleasant skin odour, aversion to water and bathing; they drink much and eat little, have a stooping walk; all orifices are red, red ears especially in children; they are vexed easily and tend to melancholia. Intuitively I recognize a Sulphur patient when he enters the room; he looks dirty. There is disturbed circulation, irregularity read more [...]
Carcinosinum Cancerinum: A nosode from Carcinoma
Historical background The first to mention and use Carcinosin, the cancer nosode, was James Tyler Kent. He called it 'Carcinoma', and this is how he prepared the remedy:
The preparation of Carcinoma which I have used, for years, was taken from a mammary cancer. The patient had continual seeping of clear, colourless, watery discharge from the open cancer. A small quantity of this fluid was saved and potentised, and has served satisfactorily, in many cases of advanced carcinoma.' He used it as a palliative in cancer cases: 'Carcinoma relieves the sharp, burnin g tearing pains. With this remedy (nosode), patients have been kept comfortable, for many year s, when cure was impossible and the cancerous development continued. The malignant process was delayed, and sufferings usually accompanying the condition were avoided (Kent, New Remedies, Lesser Writings, Clinical Cases, Aphorisms and Precepts, p. 523 f).
The English homeopath James Compton Burnett and his well-known colleague J.H. Clarke were the next to do research and practice in the field of cancer nosodes. They used Scirrhinum primarily, which is said to have been taken from a read more [...]
Techniques for Successful Repertorization of Homeopathic Case by George Vithoulkas
One could say that solving a homeopathic case is easy in theory. One has only to choose the correct symptoms, underline them correctly, and the computer will find the simillimum. Or better still, memorize all the remedies and then give the simillimum based on your knowledge of materia medica without even opening up a repertory. Some cases will lend themselves to these methods. Unfortunately, many cases have such complexity to them that in order to find the simillimum a variety of skills need to be mastered. One's skills would include:
The ability to know all variations of the human condition as much as possible, so that any symptom or distortion from "health" is easily recognized by you. This is the wisdom of SEEING THINGS AS THEY ARE and knowing the possibilities of pathology in human nature.
To know the objectives, goals and limits of cure in each case. The prognosis.
The ability to have a keen sense of intuition and powerful skills of observation all working in harmony to extract the relevant and factual information from the patient.
The ability to experience this information without read more [...]
At times in the case-taking process it is of essential importance to disregard the suggestions that have been made by the computer and ask some basic case-taking questions such as:
Is this person really healthy on the emotional level? For example, is he / she able to express his emotions with strength and clarity? Is he flexible or rigid?
Is he finding creative solutions to problems or getting more trapped? Does he have a strong sense of purpose, value and meaning in his life, or is there apathy and indifference? How much strength of individuality is in his identity or is he weak and unassertive?
What is his balance between selfishness with a strong boundary and the over caring, over sympathetic and too selfless individual who ends up as a victim? Did he/she pass through the developmental stages easily? What stages is he still trapped in?
What negative emotions are there? What are the positive ones? Finally, is his health based on freedom to make choices or does the pattern of the "subconscious" make decisions for him and restrict his freedom?"
How are the symptoms connected to the patient's life and his development as a person? What exactly was the way the patient read more [...]
GENERAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Question: Cana person's own intention prevent or facilitate the action of a remedy ?
George : That is good one. The answer in no. What they can do is not let you know what they are doing. The action will be there but they do not want to acknowledge and they will not let you know it. I have seen cases where we have treated with Lyc. She comes back next month and says such and such and so we wait with a placebo. She comes the third month with Nat-m. and says,"I am the same." She comes back and is Calc. and says, "I am worse, really worse". She is given Thuj., and she says still that she is worse. She will tell you. "In the beginning I was perfect". You say, "Perfect?" and she will say, "Yes". She will say, "The first remedy you gave me was the right one." You can go crazy. There was no clue because she went through the months always saying she was the same. So eventually we will have antidoted the case and she says, "Oh, now I am back again to where I was in the beginning".
What can I do in these cases ? If I see a slight hesitation, it might indicate that she may not tell the truth exactly. I said, "Yes, I understand that you are exactly read more [...]
Causes of Kidney stones, symptoms and treatment of kidney stones with effective homeopathic remedies and their indicated symptoms
Kidney stones or renal calculi or nephrolithiasis refers to condition of stone formation in kidneys. Stones can be formed in any region of kidney and urinary system.
Nephrolethiasis refers to renal stone disease; urolithiasis refers to the presence of stones in the urinary system. The majority of stones consist of calcium, usually as calcium oxalate, but they can contain uric acid, struvite (magnesium, ammonium, and phosphate), spontaneous passage of a stone is related to the stone size and location.
The kidneys are the vital organs of our body that filter waste products from the body. Sometimes there is deposition of mineral made up of calcium, uric acid and amino acid crysteine causes kidney stones.
Several factors increases the risk for developing kidney stones, including inadequate fluid intake and dehydration, reduced urinary volume etc. anything that blocks or reduces the flow of urine also increases the risk.
