During the rainy weather, we see growth of grass and plants. Developed allergic symptoms with symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, extreme sensitivity to cold

air which later on results in bronchitis, pneumonia with a lot of yellowish thick expectoration from the chest: Dulc.






Cold with runny nose.

Sensitivity to cold air on nose and forehead.



Pain in throat with yellowish expectoration



Muscle pain

Rhus t.


Cough with increased thirst








Asthma in rainy season



Bronchitis in rainy season

Yellowish thick expectoration



Coryza with COPD with suffocative obstruction



Coryza with obstruction in nose



Asthma with lot of mucus in chest only at night







Aggravation oily rich food

Chilly patient

Ineffectual urge for stool, urine, eructation etc.

Causative factor common is cold weather and sensitivity to cold. The top most remedy here is Nux-v. It is one of the most chilly remedies in our material medica.

The typical picture: the patient has been to a party, where he had lots of oily /rich food, alcohol etc. Next day early in the morning he starts having very intense chills with rigors > even after 2-3 coverings, wants all doors and windows closed. There is suddenness and intensity with which the chills begin and the patient gets admitted to the hospital. Then he starts having ineffectual urge to urinate/stools/eructate or vomit.

He says “If I could only vomit/eructate completely/urinate/pass stools completely I would feel better.”




Chilly patient

Throat pain ext. ears



Sensitiv to cold air

Comes close to Hep.. Extreme sensitivity to cold air with throat pain and “As if cold air is reaching inside the throat”.

Throat pain when cold air reaches the throat



Sensitivity to cold air – Tickling in throat when cold air reaches the throat

Same sensation “As if cold air is reaching inside the throat” as in Cistus but in Rumex there is no pain but tickling in the throat causing cough.



From polluted air

Polluted air causing complaints of asthma, allergies, itching in the nose and palate.

Itching in nose and palate



Chills with sensitivity to cold, some diseases which comes to mind are fevers like Malaria, Dengue, chikungunya, abscesses, urinary tract infections etc. In all such fevers

there can be any 3 stages:

1) Chill

2) Heat

3) Sweat.

When we have all the 3 stages along with periodicity, like chill with shivering, rigor followed by intense heat and profuse sweating coming every night at around  22 h.

with  profuse loss of vital fluids which may be in the form of vomiting or diarrhoea or any kind of blood loss (menorrhagia): Chin.: Meningitis with desire for stimulants,

refreshing things. Important remedy for fevers is Eupat. generally needed in people who have been to a forest camp. They develop all 3 stages of fevers with the characteristic

chill beginning in the thorax-lumbar region. Along with this they have intense joint pains or bone pains.

Another important indication for Eupatorium is pain in finger joints, elbow joints with deposits after dengue or malaria. Dropsy or swelling along with pain in lower limbs 

which has remained months after fever.

Dulc.: Anasarca after fever with urticarial rash.

Nat-m.: has lots of chills followed by heat and periodicity. Peculiar is that during the heat there is dryness which is seen on the lips along with cracks at the corners of the

mouth, lower lip or eruptions around the mouth with dry throat. Increased thirst with pain in throat just above the sternum. The location on throat is peculiar to Nat-m.

Sil.: One frequently encountered case is of a new student who has just joined a new college/hostel or a new job in a new city. For him everything is new and strange.

The food, weather, new people which causes anxiety, loss of sleep, appetite along with weakness and frequent long continued infections like cold, cough with offensive

yellowish expectoration and chilliness which stays for months.

Phos.: < change from day to night that is during sunrise or sunset. Along with this you will observe redness and congestion of face, suffocative cough and pulmonary hypertension.







Anxiety with sleeplessness

Long continued infection like cold with offensive yellow expectoration




Aggravation from sunrise to sunset

Redness and congestion

Suffocative cough and pulmonary hypertension




[Shrikant Talari]



The same intensity of suddenness and chilliness as Nux-v. but the pathology gets localized in throat. There is severe throat pain ext. ears.


Similarly with same sensation as if cold air is reaching inside the throat but in Rumex there is no pain but tickling in the throat which causes cough.

The month of August is very important in my practice for two reasons. The first is that it rains heavily in August and hence all monsoon related illnesses come like a storm

in the city of Bombay where I live, there by giving me a chance to show my skills in prescribing successfully the right remedy, secondly the number of patients who seek

my consultation doubles in this month after the slack season of May - June vacation.

I am sure all the homoeopathic practitioners throughout India will be busy in monsoon time because monsoon invites many illnesses.

I would like to share with you some reflections regarding my monsoon practice and how best we can use the knowledge of Materia Medica and repertory to sharpen our skills to treat such patients. Unfortunately the word monsoon is missing in repertory; in fact you will hardly find the word monsoon in materia medica also. The word that we are accustomed is the rains, the damp and the wet weather. The people who are most uncomfortable in rains are two according to me, Elaps. and Calc.

The Elaps person develops a very strong anxiety with excessive fears, the word rain produces shivers in their body, may become anxious, nervous, or even start trembling.

They also develop cold perspiration, with cold sensation in the stomach, appetite decreases.

He does not want to move out of the house.

In Calc. the anxiety regarding the rain is purely due to the storm or the wind or the lightening that usually accompanies the rain. Calc. person can tolerate a little mild drizzle, Elaps can never.

But the moment it starts thundering, the moment it starts lightening, the moment the weather becomes rough and stormy, Calc. just can not bear that. This is very close to Lyc. and Rhod. who also have lots of problems emotionally related in a stormy weather. Here one should compare Carc. and Sepia who loves stormy weather.

Then comes a very important thing and that is the headaches. Many people get headache during rainy weather and the remedy is Phyt.

There are people are >> from rain for their headaches: Cham.

But what remedy should we give to a person who is going to be exposed to damp weather or suppose somebody is going to travel in a place where humidity is more than 80%?

I would suggest

Aranea diadema

Arsenic album





Lemna minor


Natrum sulph





These are the remedies which I feel can help in most of the disease that attack people during the rainy weather. Now let us study these remedies so that we identify correctly the symptoms of the same. We shall begin our study with Dulc. Dulc. comes from the Solanaceae family, in Dulcamara two things that come up in the rainy weather,

1st the rheumatic problem, 2nd the catarrhal problem.

When ever a person is exposed, even slightest, to a cold wet weather (rains with strong cold winds) many people wrongly feel that Dulcamara is very good for wet weather

but no, it has to be a cold wet weather or where a person get wet in the rains and then suddenly he has exposed to a cold atmosphere like sitting or working in an air

conditioned room, this is the remedy where you will see that immediately after the exposure the person gets headache, cough, earache, coryza with profuse discharge, conjunctivitis, occipital headache, nose becomes obstructed;  the person constantly wants to cover up the nose to make it warm because slightest exposure brings lot of sufferings to the person.

Saliva can be profuse (like Merc.), sore throat (very important concomitant), great thirst for cold drinks (Phos.).

Dulc. always > warmth and in dry weather so the moment the weather changes to dry weather the person feels much better. This is in short clinical confirmations of Dulc.

Now another remedy which is worth studying during the monsoon will be Merc., Merc. develops lots of respiratory problems during the monsoon weather.

They sweat a lot after being exposed to the wet weather. Have a severe running nose with a copious discharge, after a few hours the discharge turns in to a greenish colour.

Keeps on sneezing quite a lot; sneezing only > if the person lies down. There will be a profuse saliva, extremely thirsty for cold drinks (Dulc.)

A metallic taste in the mouth which is a very important key note symptom.

Cough is < in the night and warmth of bed. Another important monsoon remedy which I feel one should know about is Nat-s. In Nat-s. the problem usually starts when

the humidity level in the air becomes more than 80% but the person craves for the cold air, this is very important, craves for cold air, cold drinks, frozen food.

Running nose has got a very typical symptom in Nat-s., coryza is mostly < at night, and with lots of crust which can be greenish or offensive thick yellow discharge from

the nose.

Can have a profuse salivation, pain in the throat < swallowing/talking;

Cough < after midnight and > in open air, the coughing is so painful that sometimes the person has to hold the chest while coughing.

Most of the coughs of Nat-s. extremely painful.

There are certain groups of people who are extremely dull and lazy when it rains.

Most important are Calc. Carb-v. Dulc. Nat-s. and Rhus-t.


[Farokh Master]

Carb-v. is basically alcoholic, They develop a lot of anxiety at night, confused from slightest mental exertion, their dullness and laziness is more when making an attempt

to read or concentrate. Dullness is usually + sleepiness 

This is very similar to Gels. where the dullness comes + sleepiness.

Then comes to a very important aspect that is there are some people who develop pneumonias or chest infections every time in monsoon season.

They start with common cold but with in few days they develop chest infection which ultimately develops into pneumonia. Now how will you identify a Nat-s. who is

heading for such a problem? what you will see over here that in most of the respiratory problems there is an involvement of the liver, emotionally they are extremely depressed,

dull, gloomy, flat, they do not want to be disturbed, they do not want to be interfered with, they are quite liable to turn their back on you, they do not want to be questioned,

they do not want to think, they are quite liable to say ‘for heaven sake leave me alone’, very often they display a certain amount of irritability. Extremely sensitive to heat and

they can not bear the stuffy room at all and they always have a sticky skin surface. Such people who need Nat-s. can be identified by looking at the tongue (looks like greyish

greenish or sometimes with the brown base or a white tongue with yellow base). Acute pain in the chest and the pain is quite stabbing which < coughing, supports side of the

chest by holding their chest because the cough will be extremely painful, they do not want to change the position because the slightest change in position brings lot of problems, most of the coughs or respiratory complaints < early morning at 3 h. - 5 h. The sputum which they bring out will be little bile stain or can be greenish in colour

and most of the pneumonias in Nat-s. you will get on the left side and in my experience is the left lower lobe not the left upper lobe.

Another problem which you will commonly see in your practice is the rheumatism and the complaints of arthritis which crops up during the damp weather.

Most important remedies will be Rhus-t. Rhod. Calc-p. Dulc. Merc. Phyt. Ruta.

Rhod. rheuma with typical wandering, shifting pain. Pain usually < at night, <: rest/during the cold windy weather or cold in the wet weather;

The pains could be drawing, tearing, shooting. The joints can be swollen and usually more affected on the right side (shoulder, elbow, wrist). Most important < rest.

Calc-p. has rheuma in damp weather. As soon as the hot weather starts or as soon as the autumn starts they feel much better.

But as soon as the cold wet weather comes there will be severe joint pains. Usually in the cervical region and it can extend to different parts of the body or they can have

a severe lumbar pain < in the morning hours and > motion.

Another important area is the ankle, they have a typical pain in the ankle when they get up in the morning waking up with a severe tearing pain “As if the ankle is sprained” and in the history of Calc-p. you will usually see a history of a chronic diarrhoea. Sometimes the feet extremely sensitive and highly prone to rheuma and they love their heels to be rubbed with this rheuma, they will ask to rub the heel which gives them a very long lasting relief.
