Calcarea Sulphurica – Homeopathic Remedy – Materia Medica Viva George Vithoulkas

Calcarea Sulphurica   Calcium Sulphate, CaSO4. Gypsum. Plaster of Paris. Trituration.   The essential features   The general idea that runs through this remedy is of an organism which tends to produce tumours and abscesses that not only do not heal easily, but that suppurate profusely and for long periods of time. The characteristic trait of the remedy is not its tendency to the formation of abscesses themselves, rather the fact that an abscess opened is very slow to heal and has a continuous discharge of yellow pus. In cases of inflammation, this organism quickly reaches a state of suppuration, which tends to continue. The presence of pus with a vent is common. I have found this remedy effective in cases of malignant acne in young people and also in hidradenitis suppurativa with cicatrices forming during the healing process. I must however point out here that some severe cases of this type of chronic condition will need more than one remedy to complete the cure. In cases of acne both cheeks present a crusty, ugly, uneven surface of dried pus mixed with blood and serum. The suppuration is so profuse that the patient cannot clear it up fast enough, read more [...]

Calcarea Carbonica – Homeopathic Remedy – Materia Medica Viva George Vithoulkas

Calcarea Carbonica Impure Calcium Carbonate. CaCO3. Includes symptoms of Calcarea acetica and Calcarea ostrearum, for which Hahnemann also made provings. Koch's provings were made from carbonate of lime precipitated from a solution of chalk in hydrochloric acid. Trituration of the middle layer of oyster shells.   The essential features The remedy picture of this great polychrest needs to be introduced with a few preliminary remarks. Calcarea carbonica is a remedy which covers all stages of life, from infancy to old age, and all stages of pathology: on the physical level from the common cold to malignant tumours, and on the emotional/mental levels from simple anxiety to manic depression and schizophrenia. One intriguing observation I have noted in the course of my clinical experience is that a disproportionately high percentage of babies, perhaps 40%, require Calcarea carbonica in the beginning of their lives, while this remedy is indicated much less frequently in adults. Why then, may we ask, do we not see more Calcarea adults? The explanation is not obvious, nor easy to perceive, and is a function of the developmental process, from baby to adult. In babies read more [...]

Caladium Seguinum – Homeopathic Remedy – Materia Medica Viva George Vithoulkas

Caladium Seguinum Caladium seguinum. Arum seguinum. Dumb Cane. (South America.) N.O. Araceae. Compare: Bov.; Nux-m.; Asaf.; Ign.; Bapt.   The essential features Caladium has come down to us as a remedy mainly for disorders of the sexual sphere and, more specifically, for impotence and the problems that arise from it. This is described very graphically by Kent who states: 'It is indicated in old debauches who are unable to perform the marital act. He has the most tantalising craving for the opposite sex with no ability to perform coitus. Lascivious ideas. Such men stand on the street corner and feast upon the forms of passing girls and their semen dribbles away; a state also found in Picricum acidum and Selenium.' My experience is that if you wait for a case to present itself whereby the patient tells you that his semen dribbles while looking at a woman, you will, rarely, if ever, have occasion to prescribe this remedy. Kent's description is solely of the advanced stage of the remedy, the idea of Caladium at this stage being one of sexual deterioration. He does not describe earlier stages or the development of the pathology. It would be a mistake, however, to read more [...]

Cadmium Sulphuratum – Homeopathic Remedy – Materia Medica Viva George Vithoulkas

  Cadmium Sulphuratum Cadmium sulphide, CdS Trituration     The essential features   The physical picture This remedy is indicated mostly in cases that present symptoms of severe gastritis or gastro-enteritis. Primarily, it is the mucus membranes of the stomach that are irritated and they react with forceful vomiting. The vomit may be brownish and even black in colour, and may look like coffee grounds. This is because there is a slow oozing of blood from the mucosae of the stomach and the blood stays there for some time before it is ejected. The intensity of the nausea, which is felt all over (in the chest, abdomen, mouth, etc.) and which is similar to Ipecacuanha or Tabacum, and the kind of vomiting (persistent, forceful and often black) suggest a severe ulceration with slow bleeding or, in chronic cases, a malignancy. The cases that need Cadmium sulphuratum give the impression that something really serious is going on, not only because of the intensity of the pains but primarily because of the type and effect of the vomiting. The patient is prostrated from the exertion of vomiting, wants to lie down quietly and does not want any read more [...]

Cactus Grandiflorus – Homeopathic Remedy – Materia Medica Viva George Vithoulkas

Cactus Grandiflorus Cereus grandiflorus. Night-blooming Cereus. (Mexico and the West Indies.) N.O. Cactaceae. Tincture of youngest and tenderest stems and flowers collected in summer.   The essential features Cactus grandiflorus is a remedy that has a special relationship to heart conditions, whether functional or severely pathological, and in particular to cardiac infarction and angina pectoris. The reason for this is that Cactus possesses in its pathogenesis the main characteristics of cardiac pathology. I have seen beneficial effects from the use of Cactus in cases of pulmonary oedema, myocardial infarction, and pericarditis, though additional remedies were necessary to complete the cure. Although Cactus can cure the case on its own, this is rare. It, of course, only acts curatively, if the symptoms agree, and especially if they include the keynote 'constrictive sensation about heart,' discussed below. Indiscriminately prescribing Cactus 'for heart disease' without individualisation will usually lead to unsatisfactory results. Some examples from my experience, are: A woman in the initial stages of pulmonary oedema, with fever exhaustion, arrhythmia and dyspnoea, read more [...]

Bryonia Alba – Homeopathic Remedy – Materia Medica Viva George Vithoulkas

  Bryonia Alba Vitis nigra; Bryonia nigram; Chironiam vitam; Bryonia dioica; Bryonia vera; Vitis alba. English: White bryony; Black-berried white bryony; White hops. French: Bryone; Bryone blanche; Coulevre. German: Weisse Zaunrube; Stichwurz Polish: Pryestepbiaty. Dutch: Welde wyngaar; Witte Bryon Portuguese: Norca branca. Italian: Brionia, Vita bianca. Spanish: Neuza alba Swedish: Hundrosva. Natural order: Cucurbitaceae - Monoecia, Monodelphia. Family: Jussieu [vegetable substance] Dioecia gynandria, L. Tincture of root procured before flowering.   The essential features The pathology which every remedy represents and cures in the human organism can be conceived of as an "idea" rather than as a heap of meaningless symptoms. The important remedies of our materia medica have been proven extensively and their symptomatology is sufficiently comprehensive for the contemplative student to extract therefrom the prevailing "idea". In Bryonia we have a patient who is emotionally, bodily and mentally dried up. He wants to be left alone, undisturbed, while at the same time constantly needing great quantities of water to balance his dryness. read more [...]

BISMUTH – Homeopathic Remedy – Materia Medica Viva George Vithoulkas

  BISMUTH Bi2O3OH2. Hydrated oxide of Bismuth and the precipitated subnitrate of Bismuth are not differentiated.   THE ESSENTIAL FEATURES Bismuth is a remedy which should be thought of in cases where the focus of the problem lies in the stomach region. Severe stomach pains of whatever origin are a strong indicator for this remedy, particularly in cases of pure gastritis, and inflammation of the mucous lining of the stomach. The Bismuth patient's face is earthy, pale, with blue rings around eyes; there is great thirst for cold drinks in evening, nausea and pressure in stomach after eating with great drowsiness in forenoon. He may experience flushes of heat over head and chest and feel prostrated. Any derangement in the health of the individual has repercussions on the stomach. Thus Bismuth may be classed with the group of remedies whose common factor is a weakness in the stomach region, such as: Nat-carb., Ant-c., Nux v., Robinia, Kali-c. and Kreosotum. The characteristics of the Bismuth gastritis are the following: severe burning, pinching, cramping or lancinating pains with violent vomiting of enormous quantities of food. The epigastric pains usually read more [...]

Berberis Vulgaris – Homeopathic Remedy – Materia Medica Viva George Vithoulkas

  Berberis Vulgaris Barberry. (Britain) N.O. Berberidaceae. Tincture of the bark of the root.   The essential features Berberis vulgaris is indicated for persons who are pallid and sickly looking. The Berberis patient is pale-faced and appears tired. He has a dirty grayish look, with sunken cheeks, deeply seated eyes surrounded by bluish or blackish-gray circles and a sickly expression. The mouth is dry and sticky, with painful white blisters on the tip of the tongue. He tends to be chilly, with a rheumatic and gouty disposition. Three grand characteristics may be identified in this remedy: firstly the pains which radiate from a point, involving the joints, kidneys, liver and heart; secondly a bubbling sensation; and lastly the wandering nature of the pains. These characteristics are described in detail below. A prominent feature of this remedy are chills and fever. A common complaint will be coldness of body with hot face, commencing at 11 a.m.; burning heat in afternoon and becoming worse during the night. The venous system, where Berberis vulgaris acts forcibly, is often involved. You will find swollen varicose veins, itching in varicose veins, network read more [...]

Benzoicum Acidum – Homeopathic Remedy – Materia Medica Viva George Vithoulkas

  Benzoicum Acidum C6 H5 CO. OH. Obtained, by sublimation, from Gum benzoin; or artificially from several aromatic hydrocarbons. Tincture or trituration.   The essential features Benzoic acid is one of the main sycotic remedies and particularly concerns cases with an inherited sycosis from the parents. The main seat of weakness seems to be located in the kidneys, although the joints and the heart are also sensitive areas. Benzoic acid is equally valuable in cases where the patient develops kidney problems or rheumatic, arthritic or gouty manifestations soon after suppressed gonorrhea. The great keynote for prescribing this remedy is strong smelling, highly colored urine, which occasionally has an appearance resembling brandy. The odor of the urine is strongly ammoniacal, or like that of a horse, and very pungent. It is said in our literature that this strong odor of urine is a constant concomitant to almost any Benzoic acid disease condition, whereas the very dark color of the urine is not always present. In my experience this is not always the case, as there are conditions under which the strong odor is not present and you may trace it only in the past read more [...]

Bellis Perennis – Homeopathic Remedy – Materia Medica Viva George Vithoulkas

  Bellis Perennis   The Daisy. N.O. Compositae. Tincture of whole fresh plant.   The essential features Bellis is an important remedy for deep traumas, whether they be of the physical body or of the psyche. It is a remedy that should be considered whenever a mistreatment or hurt has been suffered in deep parts: when the physical body has been cut up in an operation or hurt in an accident, or when the emotional body has been mistreated in an emotional conflict. It is important for the student of homeopathy to understand that different constitutions have different predispositions. In this remedy there seems to be a predisposition for the tissues of the muscular system and the tendons to be in a precariously weak or tired state. The imposition of an injury on such an organism will almost inevitably result in a deep trauma, a chronic condition that will take a certain form. A different organism, with a different predisposition, will be much less likely to have such a reaction. For instance a Graphites or a Sulphur predisposition will not develop a similar condition after an injury. Another condition that can generate symptoms in a Bellis patient read more [...]
