The second part of the article for spasmodic retention of urine continues the exposure of the most prominent remedies for retention of urine due to spasmodic disorders or paralysis of the bladder.
Stoppage of urine may arise as a consequence from some urinary disorders caused by mechanical injury, inflammation of the kidneys, kidney stones, stricture of urine passages, inflammation of the bladder or of the urethra, paralysis of the bladder, enlargement of the prostate gland etc. The urine comes out in drops or doesn’t come out at all; there is violent burning pain in the urethra, swelling and heaviness of the bladder, frequent but ineffectual urging for urination, febrile symptoms. There may be present accompanying complaints from other organs and systems in the body, like headache, nausea, retching, vomiting, colic pains in the abdomen, distention of the abdomen, kidney colic and others.
Agaricus was introduced as homeopathic antipsoric medicine from Samuel Hahnemann in the second edition of his book ‘Chronic Diseases’ as of 1835. The remedy has several provings which show many symptoms in the brain, spine, head, eyes, heart, liver, gastro-intestinal and uro-genital system. It has deep profound action on the human organism, marked with many twitching, spasms, convulsions, dizziness and weakness.
This article examines two homeopathic remedies, which are helpful in cases of bacterial food poisoning. They can be used also in cases of acute diarrhea, where the indigestion and enteric disorder are serious. They can also be regarded with relation to the article for dysentery, for acute diarrhea may possibly turn to dysenteric state. And of course, the article about Schuessler salts applicable for gastro-intestinal disorders may always be of use.
“In nature, where there is balance, there is no disease and the germ, in this case the B. Coli in the intestinal tract, performs a useful function. Where the intestinal mucosa is healthy the B. Coli is nonpathogenic.
Any change in the host which affects the intestinal mucosa will upset the balance and will be followed by a change in the habit and the bio-chemistry of the B. Coli, which may then be said to become pathogenic, but it should be noted that the primary change, the disease originated in the host, which compelled the bacillus to modify its habit in order to survive.”
J. Paterson, The Bowel Nosodes
“Here is another active, hardworking type, who will fall apart when it is time to retire, since his work is his life. This produces a sudden break in the balance, and nothing seems enjoyable anymore, everything seems too burdensome.”
Dr. Didier Grandgeorge, The Spirit of Homeopathic Medicines
