Inflammation Of The Lungs - Pneumonia





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

This disease is often connected with Pleurisy, and consists of
inflammation of the substance of the lungs. As in the former case, it
may attack only one, but may exist in both sides at the same time. If
the pleura is also affected, there will be all the symptoms of pleurisy,
together with those peculiar to inflammation of the lungs proper. They
are, pain in the lungs, oppressed breathing, cough, causing great
distress on account of the soreness of the affected parts: at first,
expectoration from the lungs is nearly wanting, the cough being dry, but
after a time, there is a rattling sound on coughing, and more or less
mucous substance is with difficulty raised. This is, at first, white or
brownish, but soon becomes reddish and frothy, tinged with blood. The
patient lies on the affected side, and cannot rest on the sound side.
The pulse is full, hard and frequent, the fever high, pain in the head,
and sometimes delirium. If the disease is not arrested, the patient
generally dies from suffocation, by the lungs filling up, hepatized, or
abscess and ulceration come on, and then what is called "quick
Consumption" carries him off.


TREATMENT.

In the early stage, _Aconite_ and _Phosphorus_ should be used at
intervals of from half an hour to one hour, in alternation, until the
fever abates, and the oppression in the chest is relieved. If, however,
there is bloody expectoration, _Bryonia_ may be used in place _of
Phosphorus_, though I prefer to use it in rotation with the two others.
These will soon, in all ordinary cases, subdue the most distressing
symptoms, and effect a perfect cure in a day or two. _Belladonna_ should
be used, when there is much delirium, or great pain in the head.
Occasionally, the cough from the beginning, is apparently loose; there
being a rattling sound, but the expectoration is difficult, the fever
high, with some chilly sensations, or at least, coldness of the knees,
feet and hands, a white or brownish fur upon the tongue, and pain in the
bowels, For such symptoms, especially with the pain in the bowels, as
though a diarrhoea would come on, give _Tartar emet._ It is often one
of the best remedies in this disease, affording relief when others have
failed.

After subduing the high febrile symptoms, if there remains cough,
indicating much irritation, or inflammation of the lungs, _Macrotin_
should be used in place of Aconite, with _Phosphorus_ and _Copaiva_, the
three in rotation, two hours between doses.


Acute Bronchitis,

_Inflammation of the Bronchial Tubes._

This is attended with distressing cough, profuse expectoration,
oppressed breathing, pain in the forehead, and general catarrhal
symptoms. _Baptisia_, _Copaiva_ and _Eupatorium arom._ given every hour,
in rotation, will, in general, relieve from the acute affection in a
short time; but the


Chronic Bronchitis

requires the use of _Copaiva_, _Macrotin_ and _Arum triphyllum_, to be
taken morning, noon, and night, in the order named; or, if the cough be
severe, they should be used every three hours. These will be sufficient
to effect a cure.


Coughs

Generally, unless they arise from consumption, yield readily to the
alternate use of _Copaiva_, _Phosphorus_ and _Macrotin_, a dose given
once in from three to six hours. If, however, there is soreness of the
throat, redness and soreness of the tonsils, palate, and fauces, or
soreness of the larynx, with hoarseness, _Arum triphyllum_ and
_Hydrastus Can._ are the surest remedies. They rarely ever fail of
effecting a complete cure in a few days. They should be used three or
four times a day. They may be used with the other medicines recommended
for coughs. In acute


Sore Throat,

arising from sudden cold, _Arum triphyllum_ and _Eupatorium aromaticum_
are the remedies to be relied upon. If the tonsils seem to be mainly
involved, constituting

Quinsy--Tonsilitis,


_Belladonna_ and _Aconite_ should be given, while there is high fever,
then substitute for them, _Arum tri._ and _Phosphorus_; or, these may be
used in rotation with the former, a dose every hour or oftener.
