RANDOM NOTES ON PRACTICE
THE UNMANAGEABLE PATIENT
WHO CROSSES HIS DOCTOR
A patient is supposed to follow the instruction of his doctor:
but suppose he challenges or argues with the doctor. He is
crossing! Here two top-ranking remedies that should at once come
to your mind are Chamomilla and Nux-vomica.
Rarely do we come across patients who are unmanageable.*
(*Under the remedy Lycopodium in Boericke Mat. Med. we find
the symptom 'haughty and arrogant when sick' which is a
botheration for those around the patient, the family members and
not for the doctor. This is altogether a different matter.)
In respect of the so-called unmanageable patients you should
not quarrel or argue with him, nor argue to say that his attitude is
The word cross should come to your mind while dealing with
such harsh and unmanageable patients. Without keeping this word
in mind mere repertorisation has led to failures. Actual cured cases
alone can illustrate this to avoid failures in these cases. An
allopath, in such cases, may simply write on the case sheet 'patient
unmanageable and not co-operating.' But in homoeopathy “the
high and only mission of the physician is to cure always…”
(Section 1 of the Organon.)
Case 1: A boy of twelve was having unbearable muscular
pain in abdomen/hip extending to knee and it was intermittent. A
few months prior to this complaint, after diving in a swimming
pool this pain started in a few hours. Later it went off. Now for
the last few months the pain had been occurring intermittently but
The mother pointed out to me one thing. Seeing no
improvement with various doctors of several systems of medicine,
whenever a new doctor was proposed, the boy would tell that he
would give only thirty days (one month) time. If not cured within
this time, he would stop that doctor.
This patient is ‘crossing’ the doctor. No sane person would
enter into argument or put conditions on the doctor. Before
learning the remedy for this case let us see next case.
Case 2: Lady, forty-five, around menopause. For a year she
had been under my treatment for burnt hands. I had been giving
her herbal remedies. Once I was asked to visit this patient. She
was in bed and her daughter told me that her mother was having
excess bleeding from uterus. When I entered the house, the patient
asked the daughter (in this case the attendant of the patient) to get
out of the room; after she left, the patient asked me in an irritable
tone, "I have profuse and excess bleeding (menses.) Is it because
of the heavy herbal remedies (that you have given me) that caused
I recalled that she never talked before in such a harsh tone.
A note on the treatment of acute diseases.
In respect of repertorising in acute diseases you need not pay
much attention as to whether a symptom is 'valuable' or not. You
take only those symptoms which are changes from his otherwise
formerly healthy state… Organon)
I read all the listed under
"HAEMORRHAGE FROM UTERUS" (Lilienthal.)
In the remedy Chamomilla I found among other symptoms the word ‘irascibility.’
Again in the chapter "MENSTRUATION AND ITS AILMENTS"
under the remedy Chamomilla I found the following:
“… great irritability and crossness all the time,
though unnatural to her when well.”
Chamomilla-10M single dose arrested the excess bleeding
and also she calmed down. When I saw her a month later, lot of
improvement in the burnt areas in her body.
When patient is irritable, cross and unmanageable, and there
is not much of other valuable (uncommon, rare-strange-peculiar)
symptom the two remedies which should come to our mind are
Chamomilla and Nux-vom.
For case No.1 on page 1, we read both Chamomilla and Nux-
v. in Lilienthal under colic and backache. In the chapter ‘Colic’
under Chamomilla the words “Colic returns from time to time”
agreed with the case under ‘Neuralgia’ under Chamomilla we find
the word ‘crossness’ (One important note: In Nux-vomica the
picture is slightly different. Chamomilla patient shows crossness
in words; Nux-v. patient in action.)
Long ago a patient went abroad to consult a popular
homoeopath. That doctor was about to leave his clinic after a day's
hectic practice. When this patient entered and started telling his
symptom, the doctor asked his assistant to give the patient Nux-
vomica. The patient, having come from abroad, took the doctor by
his collar and said, "I have come such a long way not to get snap-
shot prescribing. I learnt that you take down the symptoms of
patient, then work out the case. Do it in my case also."4
The doctor sat down, took his symptoms, worked out the case
and Nux-vomica came out.
In the practice of the author, a certain patient consulted for
impotency. I noted down on the Case Sheet (case sheet means
plain white sheet on which you write the name of the patient his
age, and date on the top.)
After he finished talking, I told him that I would give him
herbal remedies for one month. At that point he got up and said
in a snappish manner, "I read in your books that you cure patients
completely with one dose. I want you to do that." To this I replied
that it is possible in some cases, but his case requires herbal
remedies too. He took away the case sheet from my table and went
away saying "In that case I don't want your treatment."
Sometimes you get the symptom after you have prescribed! I
phoned up the doctor who referred that patient to me to give him
The attitude of the abovesaid two Nux-vom. patients is aptly
described by Boericke in his Mat. Medica in the preamble. "Fiery,

RANDOM NOTES ON SOME REMEDIES
After having selected one or a few remedies for a patient,
knowledge of a certain symptom in each remedy would enable us
to think of that remedy first and thus either confirm the one
selected, or to eliminate others in case of getting a few remedies.
Such rare-strange-peculiar-uncommon symptoms are listed below
and practitioner would do well to memorise them.
In many cases such a symptom when told by the patient had
directly led us to the remedy and even without repertorising the
case further, we had confirmed that remedy by putting a few
questions to the patient along the picture of that remedy.
Ammonium-mur.: Periods of aggravation are peculiarly divided
according to the bodily region affected; thus the head and chest
symptoms are worse in the mornings, the abdominal, in the
afternoon, pain in the limbs, skin and febrile symptoms, in the
Ammonium-carb.: (1) Unreasonable; (2) lack of reaction in skin
Muriatic Acid: Mouth and anus chiefly affected.
Nitric acid: (1) Selects for its special seat of action the outlets of
the body where the mucous membrane and skin meet; mouth,
nose, eyes, ear, anus and urethra. (2) pain as from splinters.
Sticking pains. (3) Syphilis past middle life; (4) Prone to
frequent catching cold and diarrhoea (5) Cachexia; (6)
Intermittency of complaints. (Ignatia: Spasmodic and
intermittency of symptoms.)
Ignatia: (1) Great contradictions; (2) Superficial and erratic
(shifting) characteristic of symptoms. Perpetual burden of
sorrow. (3) Silently brooding; after shocks, grief,
disappointment. Effect of disappointed love.13
Theridion: < jar, left side. Noises seem to strike on painful spots
over the body.
Sulphur: Worse standing. Urging to stool on waking in the
Hamamelis: Wants "the respect due to me" shown. Rapid
swelling after burns and injuries.
Nux-vom.: (1) Afraid he may not have enough to live on. Fiery
zealous temperament. (2) Anxious reflections about his
complaints—describes his complaints in chronological order in
the past-present language. (3) Incomplete stool. (4) Stubborness
and obstinate resistance. (Lycopodium: obstinate)
Aur-met: Woeful and dejected. (Woe=great sorrow or distress)
Belladonna: The inflammation spreads in radii as it extends to
Opium: Increased excitability and action in voluntary muscles,
with diminution of it in involuntary muscles. (See case No.8 on
page 16). For constipation with convulsions this remedy is
almost a specific. The object of fear remains before the mind's
eye long after the incident.
Phytolacca: Indifference. Indifference to exposure of her person.
(Compare Phosphorus and Hyoscyamus also. Shamelessness is
Phosphorus. ‘Wants to be naked’ is Hyoscyamus.)
Helleborus: (1) Coma starts at 2-30 p.m. then hospitalized and in
a few days dies. (2) An old woman having been accused of
death by the women around took it so much to heart that she
hanged herself. This suicide produced such an effect on the
women of the village that one after another accused herself of
having caused the death of the old women. [See Kent’s Lectures
on Hom. Mat. Medica.]
Aethusa: Diarrhoea starts 2 to 5 a.m. By 6 or 7 patient dies. In
the case of children around six months convulsions starts at 2 -
5 a.m. and by 6 a.m. patient dies. Death is marked on the face
from the beginning. You must keep these remedies in your
finger tip. [Read this remedy as well as Helleborus, Phosphorus
and Tuberculinum in Kent's Lectures on Materia Medica.]
Spigelia: (1) Feels to run away somewhere to escape from the
domestic problems. (2) When a patient is shunted from one eye
specialist to another and no glasses fit it. Visual axis constantly
changing. (See Kent’s Lectures on Hom. Mat. Med.)
Cuprum met.: (1) Lack of reaction in colic. Colic violent and
intermittent. Probably intussusception of intestines, wrongly
treated for acidity. (2) Symptoms disposed to appear
periodically and in groups. - (3) In the case of children crying intermittently.
Probably it did somersault or the child was lifted by someone
who does not know how to handle or lift children. In the case
of adults sudden pain in abdomen after they climb up the ladder
and with stretched hands holds a heavy object from the slab and
carrying that with stretched arms climbs down the ladder. This
causes intussusception and colic starts that very night.
Carbo veg.: (1) Complaints from revelling3. (2) Persona who
have not recovered completely from some previous illness or
injury. (3) Organic detritions without reaction. (3If you do not
know the meaning of any word refer to the dictionary)
Laurocerasus: Lack of reaction, especially in chest and heart
affections. Child places its hands upon chest in heart complaints
Agaricus: (1) Cross-wise affection. (2) In the case of school boys
they fall down while walking. (In Nux-vomica they trip while
Stillingia: Deplorably downhearted (bone pains etc.) Will give
you even half of his wealth worth several multimillions to any
one if only his complaint (headache?) is cured.
Selenium: (1) "Bone and teeth" should at once bring this remedy
to your mind. (2) Abject despair, uncompromising melancholy.
He has suffered so much in life that it cannot be compensated
even if you make him President of India or U.S.A. but President
of all countries in the world. (3) Old age, bone and teeth
complaints in old age. Most of the Complaints of bone and teeth
are inherent and incidental to old age. Add to this "Easy
exhaustion, mental and physical, in old age. Cannot stand or
walk in hot sun without a cap" and you have no other remedy
than Selenium. Great debility, worse, heat. Call it
osteoporosis, spondylitis etc. Bone diseases coupled with
teeth complaints in old age, this is the first remedy that should
come to your mind. One more keyword for this remedy is that
his thighs are not large but as thick as upper arm; Emaciated.
A note about the difference in the words used in Kent’s Repertory and Homoeopathic Therapeutics by Dr. Samuel Lilienthal.
Let us take the symptom 'Talk, indisposed to, desire to be
silent, taciturn'. We find this mind symptom in Kent. But the
following terms would be more sensible:
1. Serious: silent, taciturn mood;
2. Serious — want of disposition to talk
3. Repugnance to society, will not talk
Serious persons will not talk much; so also those who have
repugnance to society (Here we use the word repugnance with the1
meaning 'intense distaste' or 'not suitable or agreeing'. We do not
use 'repugnance' with the meaning 'aversion' which the reader must
Therefore, the classifications at Sl. No. 1, 2 and 3 above are
used in Lilienthal’s HOMOEOPATHIC THERAPEUTICS. Thus it is possible to reduce the list of remedies for various rubrics.
Again, let us take the rubric 'Company, aversion to or desire
for' as found in Kent.
A person desiring company either 'dreads to be alone' or he
has 'aversion to be alone.' In other words he is comfortable in
company and so does not want loneliness. So also, 'aversion to
company' is found in those who love solitude or desire to be alone
(because the presence of others is a hindrance or nuisance to do
what he likes; he does not want interference or remarks of others
in what he does.) Therefore, we do not use the term 'company,
desire for/aversion to' but, in its place, the reader would find the
Desire to be alone:
--dreads to be alone:
Solitude, aversion to:
The reader would not find the rubric 'Homesick' in this
repertory because 'Restlessness' causes one to leave house and
wander. This is the sensible classification and 'Escape' is not apt.
(The case is different in the case of a person inside a prison who
wants to go out. Here 'escape' may seem to be apt, but here too it
is only the restless persons in a prison who plans or tries to
The careful selection of words for various rubrics herein
appeals to reason because they are what we actually see in sick
persons. Thus this work excels all other works, be it in respect of
Repertory or Materia Medica.
Dr. Samuel Lilienthal is careful in using words/phrases. They are actually seen in sick patients as such and, therefore, is practical in all respects, to find the remedy—the elusive similimum.
Our success rate with Kent was a mere 20 to 40 per cent. But
when we started using the present Final & Sensible Repertory our
success rate jumped to 85 to 100 per cent. It is with great pleasure
and satisfaction that we offer this work to the profession.
If medicine is not prescribed for pathology, then what are the
‘symptoms’ that must be considered for prescribing a homoeo
Symptoms not common to pathology of diseases are otherwise
called ‘uncommon-rare-strange-peculiar’ (Section 153 of the
Thus, all dictionaries, encyclopaedic dictionaries and
encyclopaedias hitherto published are totally wrong in saying that
a substance capable of producing a disease (when taken in large
quantity) is capable of curing that disease if the same substance is
given in minute quantity. The correct definition would be: A
substance capable of producing ‘uncommon-rare-strange-
uncommon’ symptom, when given in minute quantity to a patient
with that ‘rare-strange-peculiar-uncommon’ symptom (whatever
may be the disease or pathology) would cure him--cure all diseases
that he may be suffering at that particular time.
2. Apart from ‘uncommon-rare-strange-peculiar-uncommon’
two more symptoms that are considered for selecting a
homoeo remedy are: 18
(i) ‘mind symptom’ (Section 213 of the Organon). [When
Section 213 is read with Section 153 we get
“uncommon-rare-strange-peculiar mind symptom.”]
(ii) “general symptoms” (and not “generals” which the
reader must note.)
Now the question is why we should prescribe on “uncommon-
rare...” and/or “mind” and/or “general symptoms?”
To get an answer to this let us go to the next chapter.
ENDOCRINOLOGY AND HOMOEOPATHY: A DEFENCE OF
SECTION 213 AND 153 OF THE ORGANON
A study of endocrinology would help us to justify the reasons
for the above two sections for curing a patient gently, quickly and
Metabolism means the sum total of physical and chemical
changes taking place in the living human body. The entire
metabolism is governed by the secretions of endocrine glands.
Endocrine glands do not receive blood supply from our body.
Blood vessels are not connected to endocrine glands as in the case
of other organs like liver, lung, etc.
The secretions of endocrine glands are spilled around and get
mixed with blood and reach several organs for controlling and
regulating various functions of the body.
Since the entire metabolism is governed by secretion of
endocrine glands, to cure a patient in toto without side-effects and
quickly, gently and permanently we must a priori treat the
Treatment of endocrine gland by direct means is not at all
possible for the following reasons:
1. The quantity secreted by each endocrine gland is less than a
drop throughout the lifetime of an individual.
2. You cannot treat each gland individually because each gland
is not independent but all of them are inter-dependent. Thus,
they are called “endocrine family” or “endocrine orchestra.”
3. Endocrine glands are highly individualised. For example, the
ratio between the quantities secreted by various endocrine
glands is in the ratio of 1:5:4:7 in one patient with cancer.
This ratio would be found in another individual while he is
having jaundice. Again, in the third lady this ratio would be
found while she is pregnant. Assuming that you are going to
treat the glands, to treat a person, you must a priori have
measured the ratio while that patient was in healthy state so
that you can take him to that level. This is not at all possible.
We have said that endocrine glands are highly individualised.
There is constant change in the balancing of the ratio of secretions
between each gland, during various illness of stages of life. If the
ration is 1:2:5:7 in a person with jaundice, it may be, say, 2:1:6:9
while he is having cancer.
Thus treatment of endocrine glands is not at all possible. But
we have a shortcut.
Nature’s ways are always short. (axiom of philosophy)
All symptoms those are not common to a disease, otherwise
called “uncommon-rare-strange-peculiar” must necessarily belong
to endocrine glands because the ratio of quantity of quantity of
secretions by different endocrine glands also are not uniform to all
individuals. This is something rare-strange-peculiar. Humans are
On the one hand we have “rare-strange...” symptoms in the
patient. On the other hand the ratio of quantity of secretions
between different endocrine glands in different individuals are not
uniform. It is something rare-strange-peculiar.
Useful reference works--repertories. Selection of remedy,
