EPIHYSTERINUM

Homeopathy

This is one of Dr. Burnett’s nosodes, used by him in cases of hæmorrhage and obtained, as I conclude, from a case of hæmorrhage in a patient suffering from fibrous tumour, possibly with malignant elements.

At any rate, I have found it of great value in controlling uterine hæmorrhage, whether connected with fibrous growth or not. I have used it in the 30th upwards, giving one or two doses weekly.

Relations.─Compare: The cancer nosodes; in fibrous tumours and uterine hæmorrhages, Thlaspi b. p., Fraxin., Hydrastis and its alkaloids.
