Comparison of Carcinosinum and others


The majority of the children in out-patient had been receiving treatment, and it became apparent that many children who were candidates for Carcinosin in other respects had already

been helped by one or more of a group of remedies, the most constant of which are Tuberculinum, Medorrhinum, Nat-m. and Sepia.

Others were Alumina, Ars. Ars-i. Puls. Staph. Phos. Calc-p. Syph., Lyc. Sulph. Psor. Dysentery co. and Opium.

There is a tendency for many infants to sleep in the knee-elbow position up to the last quarter of the first year, then it often disappears. The knee-elbow position is noted in Kent's

Repertory only under Med., but our enquiry has revealed that a number of drugs have it.

Carcinosin has this symptom (also tends to sleep on the back, hands above head). Other drugs having the knee-elbow position, which is obviously more valuable as a symptom in older

children, are Tub., Phos., Sep., Lyc. and Calc-p.

A group of remedies, the most constant of which are Tub., Med., Nat-m. and Sepia.

Others were Alum., Ars. Ars-i. Puls. Staph. Phos. Calc-p. Sypüh., Lyc. Sulph. Psor. Dysentery co. and Opium. Others may be added as experience grows.

Among the specific mental symptoms it covers, is Fastidiousness. Think of its related remedy, Ars. It can be added to the tidy remedies Ars. Nux-v. Anac. Graph.

Carcinosin has alternation of symptoms like Lac-c. Sep. etc.

Regarding environment influences, Carc. is better or worse from sea air.

This is a very definite symptom linking it up with Med., Nat-m. and Sepia, also Tub. which is sometimes < at the seaside.

The Tub., Med., Syph., Sepia, Nat-m., Calc-p., Dys-co., Lyc., Phos., Psor., Ars., Ars-i., Puls., Sulph., Opium, Alumina and Staph.

a) There may be partial indications for two or more of these remedies without complete coverage by any single one, such as the desire for travel of Tub. or Calc-p.;

the fastidiousness of Ars.; and the dislike of consolation of Nat-m. or Sepia.

b) One of these remedies may apparently be clearly indicated, e.g. Sepia and little effect is produced, or the effect may be short-lived. Sometimes a series of those remedies may

have been given without really satisfactory results.


Comparison Carcinosinum and Folliculinum


Carcinosinum tries hard to be obliging and fulfil duties properly to avoid conflicts. The aim is to avoid its own shortcomings, his shade to be seen as a possible form of expression of being.

Out from this avoidance life is not perceived in its entirety. This inner separation leads to illness.

Carcinosinum refers to a neglected self, a lack of integration of negative aspects of being. Self is compulsively sacrificed, an expression of an unsurpassable conflict mirroring the struggle `

against itself`, leading primarily into demolition.

Folliculinum excessively surpasses its obliging and dutiful behaviour to be able to better express and be aware of its own self. There is no relation to its own individual rhythms of life, life

only functions in complete dependency.

Folliculinum already has lost its` self. The attempt to compensate by encountering life with utmost devotion and selflessness leads into deeper deficiency and finally into a state of reduced

ability to regenerate. This picture mirrors a struggle `for itself`, leading primarily into a chronic form of suffering.
