[Constantine Hering, M.D.]
Coffee for Aggravations
It happens sometimes, that the most violent pains are increased very much by the smallest dose of the suitable remedy; in such cases give a spoonful of black coffee (or let the person smell the coffee), and as soon as the aggravation has ceased, repeat the remedy. If made worse again, repeat the coffee, and so on until the improvement is permanent.
A homoeopathic physician of the right stamp, a great master, wrote to the author, that he has given remedies in this way with the greatest success,
Paracetamol, Ibuprofen, Diclofenac oder Acetylsalicylsäure länger als vorgesehen einzunehmen.
Antipyrinum (Antip) (Phenazon) = Acetan-ähnlich
Aspirin = Sal-ac + Form-ac
Chlol = Alkohol-ähnLICH
Ibuprofen = Antirheumaticum
Gebrauch: Magen-/Darmbeschwerden (Blutung/Geschwüre/Durchfall/Verstopfung/Schmerz, weniger: Kopfschmerz/Schwindel/Seh-/Blutbildstörung);
Opiide pectiden = eigene im Körper hergestellte Schmerzstiller lindert Schmerz/warnt vor Gefahr (produced by electro-anaesthesia).
Chamomile wrap: recommended for Stomachache/-pain.
Cherry Plum Bach Flower Remedy
Whatever may be the disease that the patient is suffering from, if the patient is weeping/screaming with “UNBEARABLE” pain, Cherry Plum, considerably reduces or completely cures the underlying pathology and so
the pain stops. The best place for the use of this remedy is the labor ward in any maternity hospital for expectant women, shrieking with “unbearable” labor pain. One single dose reduces the “unbearable” pain and
it would soon be a safe and normal delivery. In rare cases you may repeat the remedy every 15-30 minutes.
Caryophyllae: Verletzt/wehgetan o. beleidigt/schockiert/verbrannt o. verbrüht, Furcht vor Berührung/Annäherung/sad from being hurt. Enthalten Saponinen;
Cham: empfindLICH vor Schmerz = abtötend/irritierend/qualvoll)/schneidend/Zucken und Rucken bis Konvulsionen
Cina: pains are shocking (paralysed shocks: jumps suddenly as though in pain). “Jumping sudden, as if in pain”. Pinching pains/child jerks/trembles/twitch (Konvulsionen) = Loganiaceae-ähnlich/pains can become paralysing from shocks.
Eupat-per: hurt of ‘aching’ pains/”As if bones were broken/dislocated”. Producing much irritability and so affinity for malarial miasm. ‘bruised soreness as if beaten’ = an aching soreness + deep hard aching, as if in the bones”/SAD.
Bel-p: = Lily representative of Caryophyllae/hurt of being excluded. Being friendless and disconnected/+ friendly/friendly loquacity, desires company. Swelling and stasis of the Liliflorae remedies [injuries with (inflammatory) swelling surrounding tissue pressed upon and squeezed/stasis with impeded circulation/cuts off circulation to tissue resulting in coldness and stiffness). cancer miasm.
Acute pain: in neuralgias/inflammation of one of the serous membranes/colic. Local modalities are good to prescribe on in the first instance. [D.M. Borland]
Consider the acute neuralgia: the character of the pain and the circumstances > or <, its cause/its situation.
It is exactly the same in serous inflammations; again it is partly on the situation but more on the character of the pain and the circumstances which modify it that one prescribes.
With colic same (gallstone, intestinal or renal colic) little attention to the situation but very much more to the character of the pain and what modifies it.
Acute facial neuralgia: PAIN in sharp stabs/or twinges of pain running up the course of the nerve, coming on from any movement of the muscles of the face, << draught of air, with superficial tenderNESS over the effected nerve, > warmth (applied)/firm supporting pressure.
Mag-p: r. Side (not dental neuralgia)
Coloc: left side.
Spig: Orbital neuralgia, with much more sharp stinging pains "As if a red hot needle were stuck into it" radiates out over the course the nerve. (After it has been touched there is a strange cold sensation in the affected area).
Post-herpetic neuralgia: ordinary shingles neuralgia where the patient comes with acute burning pain along the course of the intercostal nerve and gives a history that has had a small crop of shingles, very often so slight that he paid little or no attention to it.
Mag-p with Mag-p modalities.
Ran-b: History of herpes/SHARP shooting pains ext. along the course of the intercostal nerve/painful area is SENsitive to touch induces pain or </CONscious of any weather change that will cause the neuralgia to return.
Mez: Same distributions of pain as Ran-b and same modalities, - aggravation in wet weather/affected area is SENsitive to any cold draught/to any bathing with cold water, pain very troublesome at night, and with a marked hyperaesthesia over the affected area.
Supra-orbital (= above eyes) neuralgia after sinus trouble: Chinin-s. Post-herpetic pains: Ran-b. Ars.
Merc. and Coffee for faceache [Constantine Hering, M. D.]
Sciaticas: Classical symptoms: acute pain down the sciatic nerve, < any movement/SENsitive to cold/more comfortable if kept quite and warm, then it depends which leg is involved what drug I give.
Mag-p. for r. sided sciatica. Coloc. for left sided sciatica.
Kali-i: UNcomfortable the longer they keep still/have to start moving/warm-blooded/< warm (warmth of bed)/> moving about.
Rhus-t: Wie Kali-i. + chilly patient/sensitive to damp and cold and more comfortable when moving about.
Gnaph: pain + NUMB with the pain and tenderness over the sciatic nerve more marked than any other remedy.
Plb-met: pain + NUMB with the pain and tenderness over the sciatic nerve + CONstipation.
Comparison Gnaphalium + Coloc. + Cham. + Mag-p. + Rhus-t.
Hepatic or renal colic:
Acon: 1st attack only/PAIN and drives crazyand terrifies/feels frightfully cold, very anxious, faints sitting or standing up/cannot bear the room being hot.
Chel: Liver symptoms for some time, just vague discomfort/slight fullness in the r. hypochondrium, a good deal of flatulence, intolerance of fats, and who is losing condition, becoming sallow and slightly yellow. Develops an acute hepatic colic, with violent shoot of pain going right through to the back (1. angle of the r. scapula, 2. a constant ache in the hepatic region, 3. another violent colicky attack). Attacks relieved by HOT application/drinking of water as hot as can be swallowed.
Berb: USEful in renal or gallstone colics. Pain radiates in all directions (1. l., 2. r.). Acute urging to urinate with pain at urination. << any movement/distress/a pale, earthy looking complexion.
Morgan pure Darmnosoden
Herzschmerz: Cact. Lach. Cimic. Kalm. Lycps. Spig.
Renal colic: the urine is as a rule rather suggestive/commonly not blood-stained, but contains a quantity of greyish-white deposit which may be pure pus, but mostly contains pus and a quantity of amorphous material usually phosphates, sometimes urates. Although it is a very dirty looking urine it is surprisingly inoffensive.
Ip. Intense nausea
Morgan pure Darmnosoden
Acute abdominal colic: think of either Coloc. or Mag-p. Both often useful for colic in any area, uterine, intestinal, bile ducts, or renal-it does not matter which it is.
These remedies almost identical with PAIN, patients doubled up with pain/relieved by external pressure and by heat. Colics are intermitting/spasms of pain which come up to a head and then subside.
Coloc: prefers steady, hard pressure/ always IRritable/IMpatient, wants something done at once, wants immediate relief, and is liable to be violently angry if the relief is not forthcoming/slightly coated tongue (the digestive tract is upset). << cold/likes hot applications, not so extremely sensitive to cold air in its neighbourhood. tends to giddiness (turning more especially to the left).
Mag-p: more relief from rubbing/not the same degree of irritability, patient is distraught because of the intensity of the pain rather than violently angry/tongue is usually clean. << cold/SENsitive to a draught on the affected area. No giddiness. Pain results of exposure to cold (dysmenorrhoea/abdominal colic).
Dios: ViolENT, spasmodic colic coming on quite suddenly, rising up to a height, then subsiding. Some relief from applied heat. Tossing to get relief. Contradicted to Coloc and Mag-p. (doubled up) is hyper-extended;
In gallbladder attacks, in a few intestinal colics, and in a case of violent dysmenorrhoea. I have never tried it in a renal case. Where you get that extreme extension of the spine you can give Dios. without asking any further questions.
Ip: Pain MORE cutting than the acute spasmodic pain occurring in most other drugs. + intense nausea which each spasm of pain with clean tongue.
Menses colic: Ip: Violent dysmenorrhoea, rather warm-blooded and with the spasm of pain often
described as cutting pain in the lower abdomen. Get hot and sweaty and deadly
sick so that cannot stand up and < movement. A perfectly clean tongue and a
normal temperature = very often Ip. Even tends to dysmenorrhoea altogether.
Intestinal colic: Lyc: colic + by violent abdominal flatulence (stuck in various pockets/post-operative/in region of caecum = Blinddarm)/r. down towards the r. iliac fossa and spread over to the l. side/
rumbling and gurgling/eructation with sour taste/pain in the back > passing urine/bit emaciated patient with a rather sallow, pale complexion.
Raph: colic + by violent abdominal flatulence (stuck in various pockets/mostly localized in one definite area/< 16 - 20 h./post-operative/paralytic)/a small area coming up in one place/becoming harder and chancing place/a little flushed/no eructations.
Op: colic + by violent abdominal flatulence (stuck in various pockets/mostly localized in one definite area/post-operative/paralytic)/apt to be a definite area of distention („As if everything
simply churned up to one point and could not get past it “/ “As if something trying to squeeze the intestinal contents past some obstructing band “/ “As if something being forced through a very
narrow opening “/Heat with colic (wants to push the blankets off). Distension likely to be in the centre of the abdomen rather than in the r. iliac fossa/very common in a paralytic ileus.
(SENsitive to noise).
Podo: hepatic colic mainly/miserable and depressed, almost disgusted with life. helpful in intestinal colics + acute diarrhoea with Podo modalities. infectious gallbladder/max. temperature in
the morning (< 7 h.) and not in the evening. Jaundice. Pain not definitely localized in the gallbladder area/more in the epigastrium as a whole/tends to spread across from the middle of the
epigastrium towards the liver region. Twisting towards the liver region. < taking food. After pain soreNESS in liver region/> stroking the liver lying down.

Krebs: Organ preparations to treat pain:
Major indication for organ preparations in cancer patients:
Whereas patients are not sufficiently awake organically in the affected organ to begin with (condition initially painless/largely unnoticed by the immune system) conscious awareness may be permanently tied to the diseased organ later on, causing it to be excessively awake. Apart from potentized medicinal plants and minerals, high potencies of organ preparations are helpful in
Plexus coeliacus D 15 - D 30 (epigastric tumors). This autonomic plexus (or celiac ganglia) serves not only to supply the epigastric organs but is also connected (via the major splanchnic nerve)
with viscero-sensitive fibers. Conventional pain treatment, attempts made to eliminate this organ with local alcohol infiltration (pancreatic tumors).
Plexus mesentericus D 15 - D 30 (lower abdominal pain).
Plexus brachialis D 15 - D 30 (middle chest).
Plexus lumbalis D 15 - D 30 (pain in lumbar region)
Substantia gelatinosa D 15 - D 30 (spinal cord)
Gyrus cinguli [responsible for the link between pain and emotion/sufferers damage in this part of the brain state that while they still feel the chronic pain, it "no longer worries" (D 15 - D 30)]. This is also utilized in clinical methods based on destruction of the organ, but functional modification with a potentized organ preparation would be a more differentiated approach.
Chest symptoms [with bronchogenic carcinoma/pulmonary metastasis involving pain or dysponea Plexus pulmonalis (D 15 - D 30)].
