Homeopathic remedy -stramonium

TRIO DELIRIUM ,,, #STRAMONIUM,,Stramonium belongs to the botani­cal family Solanaceae, the nightshade family. It is found world-wide, although it is believed it originated in the area around the Caspian Sea. It is reputed that gypsies spread the seeds. Dracula is helped throughout the book by Szygany, Eastern European gypsies.

Some of the Solanaceae are benefi­cial to man, like potato, tomato, auber­gine, and capsicum pepper. Others are deadly poisons, such as Belladonna, Stramonium and Hyoscymus. Their tox­icity is related to the presence of atropine and related compounds which have a powerful effect on the nervous system, blocking the actions of the neurotrans­mitters (chemicals which allow for nerve transmission).

The effect of stramonium is that one becomes “as blind as a bat, mad as a hatter, red as a beet, hot as a hare, dry as a bone, the bowel and bladder lose their tone, and the heart runs alone”2 – all signs of an adrenaline rush that may occur with terror or violent anger.

Despite this, stramonium has medic­inal uses. The refined chemicals are still used today in orthodox medicine to dilate pupils for eye examinations and operations, to prevent vomiting fol­lowing opiate painkillers and chemo­therapy, to stimulate the heart, and to treat sarin and nerve gas poisoning. In the past it was also used for asthma.

The concentration of the chemicals varies considerably – the plants are more potent in the night, hence Dracula’s noc­turnal existence, and in cloudy, dark autumnal weather, again perfect vam­pire conditions. The white trumpet shaped flowers open in the twilight, hence the nickname Moonflower. The term lunatic is derived from the belief that insanity was associated with the moon.,,,VIOLENCE AND AGGRESSIVENESS– 1,Stramonium is like an earthquake in violence. They simply switch from rage mode to normal mode, as if nothing happened. They are very controlled and very nice and can be very sweet when they are in consultation room. But then they will say from time to time or when time comes, the fit comes, the anger comes, the violence comes and violence is hitting, striking, killing. It is not the desire to kill, they kill. They have to complete the action of violence. They go ahead and detonate their anger by doing something very violent. They will really take knife and there will be aggression. They hit children, their mother, their father. They will attack, they are tremendously aggressive and violent in their fit of anger.

There is no holding back when Sramonium “loses it.” The rage is quite insane, and accompanied by definite desire to kill. The Stramonium people were not angry most of the time. Rather they would suddenly be prone to bouts of rage with which they would struggle for few hours, and then they will be calm again, or enter a different emotion, such as lust or terror.

Stramonium is the violence of the mental state. It is very active, agitated, driven state. The person is out of control, destructive, even malicious in behaviour. It is destructiveness of all kinds- against other persons or oneself. Striking, biting, tearing, shrieking, cursing- but most specially smashing things. Such a state may erupt rather suddenly, then subside after a while, but the person is not free of it. Typically it is the chronic mania or relapsing frequently over a period of time, rather than just a simple paroxysm of rage.

It might be indicated in mass killer who suddenly begins killing many people indiscriminately. Stramonium would have to be at least thought of in such cases.

2) FEAR OF DARKNESS– stramonium individuals are subject to all manner of terrors, delusions and hallucinations and they usually dread the night, because it is that they become haunted by the horrors of their own subconscious mind. They will tell you that they hate sunset, because it heralds the beginning of the dark time.

If you have Stramonium and you sleep in dormitory and you switch off the light in night, even if he is asleep he will awake in terror and will jump to on the lights.

They sleep with lights on, and if they awake in darkened room, they will see monsters in dark and will scream long after their parents have arrived and tried to soothe them.

KENT: HE SEES ANIMALS, GHOSTS, ANGELS, DEPARTED SPIRITS.

3) WILDNESS, DESTRUCTIVENESS, STRIKING– there is wildness in delirium, they will be more furious and more like a wild animal. It will go to that point. His whole situation including his ailments frighten him so much that he doesn’t want it to ever surface again. He wants to finish it off, to eradicate, to destroy, and exterminate it. His problems trouble and scare him and he wants to finish them. His actions are always total.

4) HALLUCINATIONS– they will have a lot of hallucinations and are usually related to frightful things such as animals. They will see dogs, wolves, etc. but they see animals wanting to see them. Usually delusion is related to something dangerous, especially animals, dark or black things. They imagine dark, black things, black ghosts. One of the characteristic fear and delusion is – “always worse on waking.” (Whereas belladonna is usually worse before going to bed.) Stramonium has great fear of darkness and being alone.

5) FEAR OF SHINNING OBJECTS– Stramonium patients will report that they feel panicky in a moving car if sunlight is flickering in between a row of trees, or through a fence. One woman said she hated to look at sunlight upon water. When I asked why? She said – she said it was “one of those horrible shiny things.”

6) DESIRE TO KILL– It is not the desire to kill, they kill. They have to complete the action of violence. Stramonium will really take a knife and will charge and will charge and hit and then you see the aggression. They hit children, the mother, the father. They will attack, they are tremendously aggressive and violent in their fit of anger.

Children usually that develop Stramonium symptoms have been terrified by parents. There is a little one here, 5 year old and he plays, he does this, they say, “shut up.” He continues. The father grasp him and goes to balcony and says, “I am going to throw you down. So you shall stop. Yes or no?” great fright and then slowly that child develops symptoms of aggression. Eventually you enter the house it does not matter who you are, he looks at you and goes and hits you.

7) FEAR OF BEING INJURED– it is very interesting that this violent remedy, which is so violent that it can kill, they themselves are afraid of injured. Either the same person has both the violence.

8) MANIA– the mental symptoms are as follows. The mania or delirium is of wild character, the face being of bright red, the eyes have wild and suffused look, although they are not so thoroughly congested as under belladonna. The hallucinations terrify the patient, he sees objects springing up from every corner, animals of every kind and grotesque creatures arise and terrify him. The patient, if child, cries out for his mother even when she is near. The eyes are open and the pupils widely dilated. If an adult, he is decidedly loquacious in his delirium. At times he manifests a merry mood in his loquacity, and at others he has horrors. At one moment he will be laughing, singing, and making faces, and at another moment praying, crying for help etc. he often has photomania or desire for light. The mania assumes a silly character. The loquacity differs from Lachesis. In Stramonium the loquacity consists of a simple garrulity, whereas in Lachesis it is jumping from one subject to another. During delirium of Stramonium, as under many narcotics the patient frequently attempts to escape.


Homeopathy and cerebral ischemia

What is Cerebral Ischemia?

Cerebral anemia usually refers to brain ischemia. Brain ischemia, also known as cerebral ischemia, is a condition in which there is insufficient blood flow to the brain to meet metabolic demand. This leads to poor oxygen supply or cerebral hypoxia and thus to the death of brain tissue or cerebral infarction / ischemic stroke. It is a sub-type of stroke along with subarachnoid hemorrhage and intracerebral hemorrhage. Ischemia leads to alterations in brain metabolism, reduction in metabolic rates, and energy crisis.

There are two types of ischemia: focal ischemia, which is confined to a specific region of the brain; and global ischemia, which encompasses wide areas of brain tissue. The main symptoms involve impairments in vision, body movement, and speaking. The causes of cerebral ischemia vary from sickle cell anemia to congenital heart defects. Symptoms of cerebral ischemia can include unconsciousness, blindness, problems with coordination, and weakness in the body. Other effects that may result from cerebral ischemia are stroke, cardiorespiratory arrest, and irreversible brain damage.

Other Cerebral conditions

Cerebral congestion usually refers to heat stroke.

Cerebral Irritation has therefore come to be a term used to describe extreme “perceived” pain that a child experiences which is of unknown origin and where all other obvious causes of pain have been treated or ruled out. Meningeal irritation caused by a pain-reflex muscle contraction.

Cerebral softening (encephalomalacia) is a localized softening of the brain substance, due to hemorrhage or inflammation.
