Haemophilia and homeopathy

Homeopathic Medicine survived despite the challenges thrown at it in the two centuries of its existence. The salvo of today is from the scientific world, which is unrelenting and vows to snatch the carpet underneath the feet of our art and science and banish it from the planet.

Science has the habit of making new heroes, but there are some who stand the test of time. To uphold the ethos of the eternal hero of Homeopathy you need a man who treads with a firm stead and sound moorings. The research study on Haemophilia with homeopathic medicine has brought one such to the fore in the form of Dr.Tapas Kundu. ‘Cometh the hour,Cometh the man’.

If there is one set of diseases that are disconcerting to any Physician, it has to be the hereditary and genetic diseases which at best can be managed but are difficult tocure. Haemophilia is one such disease inherited genetically and modern medicine is at its wits end to find a way to keep the patient from bleeding. Let us look at the salient aspect of this disease and what this genial homeopath’s work on this malady has brought to Homeopathy.Haemophilia, as we all know is an inherited blood disorder due to a defective coagulation mechanism as there is a deficiency of a couple of clotting factors.

Mechanism of coagulation:

Coagulation is a complex process where the blood clots to see that there is no loss from the site of the injury. A fibrin mesh is formed as the platelets rush in to seal the block. As soon as the endothelium is damaged, platelets rush to the site of the injury. Simultaneously the proteins in the blood plasma are set into a chemical reaction and fibrin strands form. Fibrinogen is the essential factor which converts into fibrin when the situation demands it. But initially it is the clotting factors that are primary in this set of chemical reaction. If there is a deficiency of Factor VIII it leads to Haemophilia A and the lack of Factor IX leads to Haemophilia B.

What causes Haemophilia?

The genes for the formation of the clotting factors is in the X-chromosome. If the X-chromosome is defective in a man, the factor necessary for clotting does not form in the blood leading to Haemophilia. But in a woman with a defective X-chromosome, the other normal chromosome rises to rescue and takes care of the formation of the clotting factors. But a woman with the defective X-chromosome is the carrier and 50% of their progeny if boys; are likely to develop haemophilia.

Symptoms of Haemophilia:

Depending on the amount of the clotting factors available in the blood of the affected patient, the degree and symptoms of Haemophilia vary.

Mild Haemophilia: If the clotting factor is above 5% it leads to mild haemophilia and the symptoms usually show up when there is a dental procedure or a surgery. According to few cultures, circumcision is done in infants and that is the earliest when Haemophilia could show up as the bleeding doesn’t seem to cease.

Moderate Haemophilia: If the clotting factor is from 1-5%, then it leads to moderate haemophilia. In such patients they tend to bruise easily and can develop internal bleeding symptoms after a blow or a fall. There could be bleeding inside a joint, which could lead to an irritation and pain. If left untreated there could be stiffness of the joint with severe pain. Tenderness, swelling and heat locally of the affected joint can be experienced. Itusually affects the weight bearing joints like the ankles and knees and sometimes the elbows.

Severe Haemophilia: If the clotting factor is less than 1% of the necessary amount it leads to severe haemophilia. These patients tend to bleed for no obvious reason. The Little’s area of the nose and the gums are the initial spots of bleeding. Bruises are more common which can be large and deep and in numerous places over the body. Pain in the joints with swelling and tightness is common. Haematuria, occult bleeding and unexplained bleeding from the gums and nose become the order of the day. Such patients best always be observed as the probability of developing intracranial haemorrhage is very high. A bad headache, disturbance of vision, loss of balance, speech slurring and loss of coordination need to be looked out for.

Dr.Tapas Kumar Kundu

Management of Haemophilia:

Decades ago, patients would be infused with fresh whole blood. As the factor deficiencies were studied and diagnosed, the plasma would be frozen and was infused as and when necessary. As of now, recombinant and synthetic factors with mammalian plasma are being infused.

RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) remain the main stay of treatment.

The main challenge of recombinant factors being infused has come in the form of inhibitors. These are nothing but the antibodies that the body produces against the new antigen. These prevent the infused Factor VIII and IX from working properly, making them resistant to medication.

Now that we have an idea about Haemophilia let us look at the work that has been executed by Dr.Tapas Kundu and his team.

The first research paper was successfully published in www.sciencedirect.com in 2011, which reads:

Homoeopathic Medicines substantially reduced the need for clotting factor concentrates in haemophilia patients; results of a blinded, placebo controlled cross over trial.

This was a single blind placebo trial in 28 persons with severe (24) and moderately severe (4) patients of haemophilia. This study was conducted over a period of two years. During the firstyear,patients were given placebo and during the second year, acute medication was prescribed as and when the need arose, and also a deeper constitutional remedy was simultaneously administered. If the patient did not respond in the first six hours of medication, they were given factor concentrates.

During the first year there were a total of 203 bleeding episodes in 28 patients. This had come down to a phenomenal 28 bleeding episodes in the second year of observation with homeopathic remedies. The pain score and behavioural scores improved significantly and so did the need for analgesics. No patient developed inhibitors!

Arnica, Ledum pal, Mag phos and Hypericum were most useful for pain while Arnica Hamamelis andMillefolium were of use in acute bleeding. Calc flour was of great help with haemophilic synovitis. Millefolium proved its worth in the acute phase. Causticum, Calcarea carb, Heparsulph and Lachesis were the deep acting remedies that suited 16/28 patients.

The second research publication was in 2015 in the Journal of Traditional Medicine & Clinical Naturopathy which reads:

Management of Acute Bleeding in Severe Haemophilia using Homoeopathic Medicines: a Multicentric Case Series

The analysis of this paper was done from 2007 till 2014 involving 494 patients with ages between 9-51 years. Of 578 bleeding episodes, a staggering 91%of them responded successfully with homeopathic medicines, while 3.1% did not and factor substitutes had to be given. Patients who had inhibitors also responded 65% of the time. Pain was relieved in 83% of the cases.

The 636 bleeding episodes in the seven years of study included, epistaxis, bleeding from the gums, haematuria and miscellaneous bleeding. Hamamelis Q was found effective for open bleeding and was applied over the area for about 15-20 minutes. Arnica 30, Ledum pal 30 or Rhus tox 30 were the frequently used medicines apart from Merc sol, Calc carb, Sepia, Sulphur, Silicea, Veratrum alb, Tuberculinum, Medorrhinum, Lachesis, Lycopodium, Phosphorus, Pulsatilla etc. as and when the symptoms corresponded. These were given every half an hour and when there was no response in a fourhour period, factor precipitates were resorted to, to achieve haemostasis.

It was found that most of the cases responded with stoppage of bleeding within half an hour and pain was relieved within a two hour period.

Standard biochemical, haematological, grouping, cross matching and coagulation work up was done as per the clinical requirement and situation. Dr.Kanjaksha Ghosh(Director, National Institute of Haematology), Surgeon-Dr.Sudhir Kulkarni and Dr.Ranjana Kulkarni clinically evaluated the effects of homeopathic medicine single-blinded, and provided factor concentrates whenever possible. Apart from Dr.Tapas Kundu, Dr.Afroz Shaikh, Dr.Priyanka Singh andDr.Afiya Shaikh were the prescribing homeopathic physicians.

The third research study was published in Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary & Alternative Medicine in 2017 and is available as reprint in sagepub.com. The title of the paper is:

An Exploratory Study of Autonomic Function Investigations in Haemophiliacs on Homeopathy Medications Using Impedance Plethysmography

A medical analyzer system helps in finding the heart rate variability (HRV) and blood flow variability (BFV). It has been found that the autonomic nervous system has an impact on homoeostasis. This is measured by the medical analyzer system produced by the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre. It has been proven that HRV and BFV arefound more often in haemophiliacs than in the normal population.

A total of 80 subjects were studied amongst which were 18 healthy controls and 62 were severe haemophiliacs where Factor VIII was less than one percent. Heart rate and peripheral blood flow were recorded over one hour in all the subjects.

Amongst the 62 haemophiliacs, 49 were on individualized homoeopathic medicines and 13 were not on individualized medicines. Amongst the 49 haemophiliacs, 34 were feeling better symptomatically while 12 were not better. Three patients were not recorded due to technical limitations.

It was found that there was a decrease in parasympathetic activity in haemophiliac patients taking homoeopathic medicines, which suggests that the BFV is impacted by reducing vagal input to the heart, allowing the sympathetic system to respond to stress and haemostasis.

The fourth research study was published in Complementary Medicine Research in May 2018, titled:

Homoeopathic Medicine Reduces Pain and Haemarthrosis in Moderate and Severe Haemophilia: A Multicentric study

This study was done over a period between 2007 and March 2014 with 1679 episodes of haemarthrosis in 343 patients with haemophilia. This study included the knee joints, shoulder joints, elbows, ankles and the wrists. This also included patients who had already developed inhibitors but still responded to homeopathic medication.

In 23 patients, 99 episodes could not be managed with homeopathic medicines and required factor concentrate infusion. But a staggering 1550 plus episodes of pain in the joints due to haemarthrosis responded to homeopathic medication. The progression of improvement was seen in six hours. It was studied as reduction in the joint swelling, reduction of joint girth and relief of pain.

If the improvement did not occur in 24 hours they were told to resort to factor concentrates. The following remedies were prescribed on symptom similarity in lower trituritions. Arsenic alb, Belladonna, Apismellifica, Calc carb, Calc flour, Bryonia, Rhus tox, Sepia, Sulphur, Silicea, Veratrum album, Tuberculinum, Medorrhinum, Thuja, Sticta, Stellaria media, Ledum pal, Lachesis, Lycopodium, Phosphorus and Pulsatilla. If the change did not happen in two hours of starting the medicines, they were re-assessed and changed, which accounted for 497 episodes of the total 2173 occasions.

This study was helpful as homeopathic remedies have been able to arrest bleeding apart from providing significant pain relief, and they reduced the long-term tendency of frequent joint bleeds in a significant number of patients.

As always, observation was done by seasoned allopathic doctors who were unaware of the nature of the homoeopathic medicines given.

The fifth research publication was published in European Journal of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences in April 2018, titled:

Effective Management of Haemophilia patients with a combined therapy to reduce cost: A New Approach

This study measured the work done by the centres of Dr.Tapas Kundu and was accepted for publication. This showed that the periodic medical camps at different cities treating haemophilia patients with homoeopathic remedies have met with remarkable success in reducing the clotting times and gaps between hospital visits for transfusion concentrates, causing improvement in general health, a feeling of well-being and considerably bringing down the cost of overall management of haemophilia. All of this brings a ray of hope to the poor patients.

Takeaways for Homeopathy with this research studies:

  • The cost of haemophilic concentrates is very high, and in a developing country like India where more patients are below the middle-class income group, it is very difficult for them to afford treatment. The use of homeopathic remedies saved 90% of the costs. The world of medicine today stands by the principle that if there is a proven course of treatment and if it is not suggested by the physician, it is unethical practice. This also extends to research of new medicines. In the case of haemophilia, if the factor concentrates are not prescribed it could be termed unethical. But here the patients are unable to procure the factor concentrates because of the high price and thereby the ethical law cannot be enforced. For homeopathic research, here it is a blessing in disguise.
  • The challenge of the scientific world is faced here successfully. These controlled and well-designed scientific experiments have suggested the possible biological action and molecular mechanisms behind the action of the remedies. 
  • This is an area where conventional medicine does not have much impact and research studies have clearly shown that homeopathic remedies have been successful in treating these patients 90% of the time.
  • Haemostasis was achieved successfully in most patients 90% of the time. Sometimes it was observed that homeopathic treatment had greater capability in controlling bleeding than the conventional medicine has achieved.
  • The gap between blood transfusion requirements increased significantly.
  • Apart from the acute remedies Dr.Tapas Kundu and his associate prescribers always looked for a constitutional remedy, and on some occasions both simultaneously.
  • Pain relief was achieved in less than two hours of medication in haemarthrosis and most of the relief was in less than 24 hours.
  • The homeopathic remedies have been proved to have no, or insignificant side-effects and have considerable beneficial effects which have been demonstrated in all the studies.
  • Apparently, no patient developed any inhibitors during homeopathic medication. Better still, the patients who had inhibitorsto the factor concentrates in their blood streams, also equally responded well to homeopathic medicines for improving coagulation and relieving pain.
  • The same patient who was on placebo for a year and later on medication for the second year showed convincingly improved results and the cross-over trial is a benchmark in scientific studies.
  • Most of the subjects selected were severe haemophiliacs where their factor concentrates were less than 1% and the improvement in them shows the remarkable response.
  • All the subjects were studied by the experts, lead by the Director of the National Institute of Haematology and they were unaware of homeopathic remedies whether being placebo or otherwise.
  • The clinical studies started as a work of a complementary mode of treatment but with 90% success rate it should be now considered an alternative medicine.
  • Much has been said against homeopathy, that it is a ‘faith-cure’, ‘black magic’, etc. But when you have a double-blinded,or single-blinded trialas this study was,all such doubts are put to rest.
  • A medical analyzer system which studies heart rate and blood flow variability influenced by the autonomic nervous system is an important factor to rule out any false-positive results.
  • Last but not the least, homeopathic remedies afforded a better quality of life.

Grief -sadness-loss of loved one and homeopathy

Grieving and Finding It Hard to Recover? Homeopathy Can Help.

Posted by Dr. Lisa Samet N.D. on Mar 4th 2016

Grief is a normal response to the death of a loved one or the loss of a love. It’s been written that there are stages to the process that range from shock and denial to depression and finally acceptance.

It’s really important to realize that the mourning process is normal, usually painful, and always necessary to sustain good mental (and physical) health. And it takes time, so be patient with yourself.

I have found in my years of practice that homeopathy can help those who grieve and then get stuck in an unyielding depressive state. Here are just a few of the remedies most often called for in these situations:

  • Ignatia: There is perhaps no homeopathic remedy more often indicated in a case of acute, recent grief than Ignatia. At times referred to as the “sighing remedy,” people needing this remedy tend to be markedly sad and disposed to silent grieving. They may cry a great deal, great big sobs, even – and are often found sighing with marked regularity. These patients typically prefer to grieve alone and also tend to be quite moody. Ignatia patients may have contradictory symptoms (ie, a sore throat which feels better from swallowing food).
  • Natrum muriaticum: This homeopathic remedy places a close second to Ignatia for the number of times it is called on for those struggling with grief. Those needing this remedy are often quite melancholy and weep often, like a Pulsatilla patient, – but unlike those requiring Pulsatilla, Natrum muriaticum patients generally avoid consolation of any kind. Attempts at consolation are often rejected with anger or embarrassment. People needing this remedy often feel worse from 10-11:00AM and have a great aversion to the heat of the sun. They often have a strong craving for salty food.
  • Phosphoric acid: This homeopathic remedy is called for less frequently for grief – but still has its place. People needing this remedy tend to suffer more the chronic effects of grief and look haggard and gray… the grief seems to be more deeply rooted than in cases calling for the remedy Ignatia. The patient often feels very drowsy and might also be described as profoundly indifferent. They crave juicy and refreshing things, especially fruit.
  • Pulsatilla: One might think of this homeopathic remedy in cases where the patient is inclined to silent grief with much weeping. The person needing this remedy is typically mild, gentle, and yielding – and someone who weeps very easily. They can’t talk about their problems without weeping. Unlike Natrum muriaticum patients, Pulsatilla patients like to be consoled. In general – a Pulsatilla patient tends to be warm blooded, dislikes a warm room – feeling better in cool open air, has physical symptoms that seem to shift about, and is thirstless.


Homeopathy and autism “ questions”

Homeopathy and Autism FAQs

1.   Does Homeopathy help autism and related disorders?

Yes – homeopathic treatment of those diagnosed with autism and autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) has produced highly positive results.  Because homeopathy stimulates and strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal, autism with its related neurodevelopmental, gastrointestinal and immune system symptoms responds to homeopathy just as readily as simpler problems such as bruises and colds. There are some provisos though, and these are discussed below.

2.   Which homeopathic remedies treat autism?

There is no one remedy for autism but many potential remedies depending on the unique symptoms of the sufferer. For example, a non-verbal child with acidic bowel motions needs a different remedy to non-verbal child with frothy, smelly, bowel motions; a child who tantrums with anxiety needs a different remedy to the one who tantrums when refused; and a child frightened by animals needs a different remedy to the one frightened of the dark. Potential remedies are as numerous as the variations in presenting symptoms.

3.   What is needed for successful treatment?

Complex and long-standing problems such as autism are best managed by an experienced homeopath who knows how to choose:

  1. The right remedy for the presenting symptoms
  2. The right strength and frequency of dose for the person’s sensitivity to that remedy
  3. The correct changes in remedies, potencies (strengths) and dosages as symptoms improve during treatment.

With a little knowledge, simple problems such as bruises and colds can be easily be treated with homeopathy by parents in the home but for optimal results, autism is best managed by a qualified and experienced practitioner.

4.   How much improvement will I see?

Those who use homeopathy for autism generally see positive results not long after commencing treatment, often within days. While some children completely lose their diagnosis within weeks to months, others make slow but steady gains over many years. Most, however, fall somewhere in between. How long it takes depends on the interplay of:

  1. The severity of symptoms
  2. The degree of irreversible damage
  3. The closeness of the match between the remedy and the person’s symptoms
  4. The skill and experience of the prescriber in choosing remedies and managing the changing symptoms as treatment progresses

The important thing to remember is that with good homeopathic prescribing, all children (and adults) with autism should notice obvious improvement.

5.   Does my child have to stop other treatments or supplements before starting homeopathy?

No. At the beginning of treatment it is best to keep everything the same so it is easy to see which changes are the result of homeopathy. With ongoing treatment you may then wish to reduce some or all other interventions and supplements but please speak with the relevant therapist first.

6.   Are there side-effects with homeopathic remedies?

As a general rule, no, but sometimes symptoms may worsen for a short period after the remedy if the dose was too strong or repeated too often for the person’s sensitivity. This reaction is short-lived and is not toxic or harmful. It often provides helpful information on how future treatment should proceed so do note the details and pass them on to your homeopath.

7.   How are homeopathic remedies given?

Remedies are usually given by mouth in the form of sweet sugar pills or mild tasting liquid. Doses are small and infrequent and children love them – as do adults. While the sugar pills are especially pleasant, the strength and dose of liquid remedies is more easily adjusted to suit individual sensitivity so that a faster rate of improvement can be achieved.

Homeopathy and birth delivery

Labor and Delivery (Birth)

Giving birth to a child can be a different and unique experience for each new mom. And homeopathy can be very easily incorporated into any birth plan. The following are some of the most common remedies that can provide assistance and relief during labor and delivery:

  • Aconite: Everything is happening too fast. Contractions are running into each other without a break. There’s tremendous anxiety and fear, especially fear of death. After the birth, this is the best remedy for shock for mother, baby, and/or partner (look for “big eyes”—that is, who looks and feels shocked, like they’ve been through quite an experience).
  • Arnica: If you had to choose only one remedy to using during labor, this would be it. Take it throughout labor to prevent bruising—every 4 hours, or more frequently if it provides relief from pain. Typically, it will be more effective for those contractions that feel sore, bruised, aching—but manageable. After labor, take 3–6 times daily for up to a week to speed the healing of bruised muscles and to help with after pains.
  • Chamomilla: Backache labor with intense, unbearable pains. The cervix is slow to dilate. The birthing woman is very angry—she screams with pain and demands relief but nothing is right.
  • Cocculus: After the birth, there may be tremendous tiredness because of breastfeeding and the nights of broken sleep. Exhaustion is accompanied by dizziness, trembling, and/or a mild headache.
  • Kali carbonicum: Backache labor with chilliness and exhaustion. Pains in the lower back radiate down into the legs and are better for very hard pressure. Contractions slow down or stop. The birthing woman is anxious and irritable, bossing everyone around.
  • Kali phosphoricum: For simple exhaustion during or after the birth. In labor, one dose can be taken between each contraction until energy starts to return. After the birth, it will help if there’s exhaustion with insomnia from the excitement of the birth itself.
  • Pulsatilla: The cervix doesn’t dilate, and the contractions stop and start. The birthing woman feels pathetic, weepy, and clingy—like she “can’t do it” and she says so. She wants company and reassurance, and she feels better when she gets
    it. She doesn’t want anything to drink. She craves fresh air, feels much better from it, and much worse in a stuffy, hot room. After the birth, she feels depressed with all of the above general symptoms only more so and says “I want my mommy,” either literally, or in the way of wanting someone to take care of her.
  • Sepia: The birthing woman gives up, becomes completely exhausted, and sags on every level. She is miserable and irritable—wanting to be alone but tending to snap only at loved ones. After the birth, she feels depressed— “burnt out,” irritable, and just wanting to be alone. The after-pains are severe.
  • Sulphur: During labor, the contractions become very weak or stop. The birthing woman becomes very restless and feels hot, sweaty, thirsty, and irritable (unlike with Pulsatilla). She wants fresh air (like with Pulsatilla).

Labor and Delivery: Special Guidelines for Prescribing

  • Select a potency that matches the intensity of the symptoms; 200C often works well during and after labor, the only exception being Kali phosphoricum which works best in a 6X potency.
  • You’ll want to repeat more often than you would for an acute illness:
    • every 5 to 15 minutes or even between contractions if symptoms are very strong;
    • less often (i.e., every half hour to hour) if the symptoms are not very strong.
  • Don’t worry if you jump from one remedy to another during the birth. Different remedies may be needed at different points in the process.
  • Just as you would in using homeopathy in other situations, remember to:
    • Stop the remedy once it “works,” i.e., once you see an improvement.
    • Repeat the same remedy if the same symptoms return.
    • Change the remedy if you’ve taken 6 doses and it hasn’t helped.

Hay fever and allergies -homeopathic remedies help

Common homeopathic remedies for hay fever

Allium cepa (All-c.)

This remedy, prepared from the red onion, treats the symptom of streaming eyes and nose that is worse in warm and stuffy rooms. (People who need All-c may even crave and feel better for eating onions.) Their nasal discharge burns while tears from the eyes are bland – the opposite to Euphrasia’s symptoms. Sneezing can be intense and frequent and eyes are sensitive to the light.

Arsenicum album (Ars.)

This is one of the best remedies for hay fever.  Burning or itching in the nose, eyes or throat being a strong indication.  The discharges from both eyes and nose will be burning (but check to make sure that Allium cepa or Euphrasia are not better indicated – Euphrasia has the opposite symptoms). An improvement of the symptoms in the open air, although sensitive to light, is usually an indication for this remedy.

Euphrasia (Euphr.)

A classic remedy for hay fever where, again, there is lots of sneezing with streaming eyes and nose.  If the water from the eyes burns the cheeks and the discharge from the nose is not too bad, this remedy is needed.  (Allium cepa has the opposite symptoms). The remedy is indicated if the symptoms improve in the open air – obviously away from pollen.  Sensitivity to light may be apparent in both Euphrasia and Allium cepa.

Natrum muriaticum (Nat-m.)

Initially, there is a streaming, bland discharge from both the eyes and nose with lots of sneezing.  Later, there is nasal discharge that is thick and clear like the white of an egg with loss of taste and smell.  This is not one of the main remedies for hay fever but it can bring great relief to the type who gets easily burned, feel generally miserable, uncomfortable, blotchy and irritated in the sun.

Nux vomica (Nux-v.)

This is one of the best remedies for when there is lots of sneezing, streaming from the eyes and nose, and an irritable, nasty mood.  (If they are sweet tempered, it is unlikely to help.) The symptoms are worse in dry air and relieved when the atmosphere is damp.

Pulsatilla pratensis (Puls.)

The main indications for this remedy are a weepy, needy, state of mind, together with discharges that are thick, bland (not acrid) and green or yellow.  Pulsatilla frequently has one side of the nose blocked or congested.

Sulphur (Sulph.)

Watery, burning nasal discharge, or a blocked nose, when outside. Frequent sneezing. Blocking of nose on alternate sides. Burning pain in eyes. Symptoms worsened by warmth and becoming warm in bed. Better for being in open air. May be lazy, opinionated, and desire sweets, alcohol, and spicy food.

Less commonly used remedies for hay fever

Ambrosia artemisaefolia (Ambro.)

Intolerable itching and watering from eyes. Burning of eyes. Sneezing and watery nasal discharge. Nose and head feel stuffy. Nose bleeds.

Arum triphyllum (Arum-t .)

Irritation or itching in the nose leading to boring, picking, rubbing. May pick at lips and face. Throat, mouth, tongue, and palate may burn, making it difficult to eat or drink despite having a thirst. People who need Arum-t may experience concurrent hoarseness and peeling or chapping of the lips.

Histaminum ( Hist.)

Consider this remedy when either no other remedy seems accurate or if other remedies have been tried and haven’t worked.

Kali bichromicum ( Kali-bi.)

Consider this remedy when thick, stringy, green or yellowish mucus from the nose or throat is present. There may also be a post-nasal or pain at the root of the nose relieved by hard pressure.

Sabadilla officinarum (Sabad.)

Hay fever with frequent, spasmodic sneezing that exhausts the person. Sneezing from tickling inside the nose, and sneezing that causes the eyes to water. Profuse, watery nasal discharge and red and burning eyelid margins. Symptoms worse in the open air, better in a warm room. Dry mouth but little thirst.

Solidago ( Solid.)

Burning, stinging eyes. Paroxysms of sneezing with mucus discharge from nose.One of the main remedies for people allergic to house dust mite.


Homeopathy and injuries

Homeopathic

Remedy Options

Primary Remedies

Bellis perennis

This remedy is useful for injuries to the trunk and deeper tissues—as from falls, car accidents, surgery, etc. —especially if a feeling of stiffness or coldness develops in the injured area. If Arnica has been given for an injury—especially a strain or bruise—but has not had much effect, Bellis perennis may be helpful.

Hypericum perforatum

This remedy relieves sharp pain that seems to follow the nerve’s path.

Other Remedies

Aconitum napellus

This remedy can be helpful when a person feels extremely fearful or agitated after being injured. It may help to soothe anxiety and panic and reduce the chance of shock.

Arnica montana

This remedy relieves pain, bruising and swelling associated with trauma, surgery or overexertion.

Calcarea phosphorica

This remedy is useful for bone bruises, old or slow-healing fractures, or any injury that leads to soreness in the bones, especially if the area feels cold or numb and improves with warmth. The muscles near the injury may ache or stiffen.

Calendula Ointment

This remedy can be applied to disinfected cuts, chapping, burns and scrapes.

Ipecacuanha

This remedy can be helpful as first aid if heavy bleeding occurs after an injury, with a feeling of nausea and weakness. (Emergency care is crucial when serious bleeding occurs; pressure should be applied to a severely bleeding wound, and medical help should be found immediately.)

Ledum palustre

This relieves bruises from blunt objects, especially where the skin is thin (around the eyes, fingers and toes), as well as pain and bruising from pointed objects.

Millefolium

Contusions or sprains that involve small broken blood-vessels and lead to bruiselike bleeding beneath the skin suggest the use of this remedy. It is often also useful for nosebleeds after injury, and for bleeding in other parts of the body (for instance, after childbirth or surgery).

Phosphorus

When small wounds bleed easily, or a person has a tendency to bruise from minor injuries, this remedy can be helpful. It is also useful for nosebleeds.

Ruta graveolens

This remedy relieves strained ligaments and tendons.

Symphytum

This remedy is best known for its healing effect on broken bones, and is also good for bone-bruises. It is valuable if blunt injury occurs to the eyeball (from a rock, a stick, a flying object, etc.) Any injury to the eye or eyeball should be examined by a doctor.
