Inflammation Of The Bowels - Enteritis





Category: ADMINISTRATION OF REMEDIES.
Source: An Epitome Of Homeopathic Healing Art

This consists in inflammation of the muscular and peritoneal coats of
the intestines, sometimes also involving the mucous coat.

The pain in the abdomen is constant, intense and burning in its
character, felt most at the navel; the abdomen is extremely tender to
pressure, and often bloated or tympanetic.

Thirst is intense, but cold drinks distress and vomit the patient. The
pulse is small, feeble and frequent, and the bowels costive. This is a
very dangerous disease. It is sometimes connected with inflammation of
the stomach, then called gastro-enteritis. The tongue is then red and
pointed, the nausea and vomiting are more violent and constant, the
thirst burning and insatiable.


TREATMENT.

The same medicines are applicable to both _Gastritis_ and _Enteritis_.

_Aconite_, _Arsenicum_ and _Baptisia_ should be used one following the
other every half hour until the symptoms begin to subside, then let the
intervals be lengthened.

In addition to these remedies, I allow the patient to drink often and
freely of hot water, as hot as can be swallowed, and though it is at
first almost instantly rejected by the stomach, by repeating it in a few
minutes in moderate quantities, it gives relief and will soon so allay
the irritation as to remain. In some cases the vomiting is severe, the
bowels are loose, and pain burning. For such, _Tart. Emet._ is the
proper remedy. Cold drinks should not be taken.

Cloths wet in cold water, ice water if it is at hand, and wrung out so
as not to drip, should be laid over the whole abdomen and instantly
covered with two or three thicknesses of warm dry flannel, and the
patient's feet kept warm. This may be considered harsh treatment, but
there is no danger in it; on the contrary I have, in the worst and most
alarming cases of _gastritis_ and _peritonitis_, made such applications,
and in less than an hour have seen my patient easy and beginning to
perspire freely, all danger having passed. It always affords more or
less relief and is never attended with danger. Covering the wet cloths
immediately with plenty of dry ones is very essential.

After the acute inflammation has subsided, it is well to have the bowels
moved, but don't give drastic cathartics. _Nux Vomica_ given at night
and repeated morning and noon, will generally serve to cause an
evacuation. Injections may be used.
