The striking symptoms of
Kreosote in the Stomach are
Soon after eating there comes a
burning pan in the stomah and then a sense of fullness and an
increasing nausea, ending in vomiting of the food, which looks as it
did when first consumed (ie undigested) but it is sour and
acrid coming up an hour or two after eating. The stomach seems
unable to diget, and after the patient empties it (through vomiting)
there is constant nausea.
After drinking water a
prolonged bitter taste remains in the mouth.
a aggravation from eating cold things and relief from warm diet. In
malignant diseases of the stomach when this symptom is present
Kreosote becomes a great palliative. It relieves the burning and
improves the digestion for a while, but the trouble comes
again. Thus it is a palliate in Cancer of the Stomach.
Nux Vomica has irritable
weakness of stomach and incapability of digesting food, whereas
Kreosote retains food several hours and vomits it undigested.
Phos. vomits food or drink as soon as it becomes warm in stomch.
Iod. Rapid emaciation, inordinte appetite; wasting of mmmme
Kresote is a great remedy for
diarrhoeas in the summer, especialy for infants. Infants have
the troubles that are sometimes associated with teething. Abdomen is
distended. Bloody fetid and sometimes green stools.
Important symptom is irritation of bladder
and prostate, during night, frequently rises to pass a 'very little
urine, coming away like a spray. Frequent and urgent want to make
water, even at night "When the desire to urinate comes he must
hurry or the urine will escape." Wetting the bed at night. Weakness
of bladder; inability to hold the urine. Urine is offensive.
Violent itching of vulva and vagina, worse when urinating. Can
urinate only when lyng down; cannot get out of bed quick enough
during first sleep. Dreams of urinating. Enuresis in the first part
"Sugar in urine." "It
has cured diatetes." Of course, such a case is cured in a
Krosote constitution. It may be observed that the study of the
constitution is of utmost necessity in the art of prescribing, in
Important symptom is that menstruation of
Kreosote is usually copious and is accoumpanied with humming and
roaring in the head and preceded by abdominal bloating. The
flow may be intermittent and accompanied with dragging downwards in
the back. It differs from Sepia, in that the flow is early and
profuse, while that of Sepia is late and scanty. Menses ceases on
sitting or walking; reappears on lying down. The menses are
apt to be followed by dark brown offensive leucorrhoea.
The leucorrhoea of Kreosote is very characterisitc and in this field
it has won laurels. The discharge is very acrid, very offensive, and
excoriates the parts which it touches; it is yellow, the patient is
weak, there is violent itching of the vagina and smarting and
burning between the thights; the parts become swollen, hot,
hard and sore. After the leucorrhoea has continued for some
time it has an odor of green corn. This acridity of the leucorrhoea
readily distinguishes Kresote from Sepia and Murex. In
displacements Kresote is very useful, especially in prolapsus uteri.
There is dragging in the back, and a dragging downward which are
relieved by motion, thus distinguishing from Sepia and Nux
Vomica. Kreosote is a useful remedy in ulcerations about the
female organs, with offensive exocoriating discharge, burning pain,
heat and soreness.
