Local Applications





Category: DISEASES OF FEMALES
Source: An Epitome Of Homeopathic Healing Art

That medicines act locally, that is, manifest their symptoms by peculiar
derangement or disturbance of some particular part of the system, more
prominently than of any other part, for the time, no one will deny. That
each one has some particular locality or tissue upon which its action is
more perceptible than anywhere else, is equally undeniable, and that the
prominent symptoms are often external and local, is also true. Yet, with
these truths clearly demonstrated, there are those of our school who
discard the external or local application of all remedies except
_Arnica_.

Why this is done, is difficult to determine, unless we can believe that
such physicians suppose it to be _heresy_ to make use of any remedy in a
different manner from what was recommended by the "Father of
Homoeopathy," and abjure all possibility of _improvement_ in our
practice.

That nearly if not all medicines, may be applied externally with
advantage, when there are local manifestations similar to those produced
by the drugs, there can be no doubt in the mind of any sensible man.
That they will act favorably when so used is _reasonable_, as a matter
of theory, and that they do, as a matter of fact, has been _proven_ to
my mind, by abundant experience in their use. Therefore, I hesitate not
to recommend the practice to others. Medicines must act either by
combination with the affected part, or by _Catalysis_, changing the
molecular action of the living tissues. In either case, they must come
directly in contact with the part to be affected. This _must_ be done
through the circulation, when taken internally, or it _may_ be done by
direct application of the remedy to the diseased tissue, when that is so
situated as to be reached. The difference is greatly in favor of the
latter mode when that is practicable, from the greater certainty of its
results. This assertion is based, not upon vague hypothesis, but upon
_actual practice_.

Entertaining these views, however heretical they may be pronounced, I
shall proceed to mention some of the remedies I have learned to use
thus, and the cases for which they are prescribed. I would remark that,
in selecting a remedy, it must be done with as much certainty of its
homoeopathic relation to the local or general symptoms for external as
for internal use. I have found, however, that much lower attenuations
are requisite and admissible.

ARNICA is highly applicable to _bruises_, and is valuable also when
applied to lacerated or mangled surfaces, to the surface of the limb
where a bone is fractured, also about the joint when it has been
dislocated. It is to be used in the form of _Arnicated water_, by
putting one or two drops to a gill of water for application where the
skin is ruptured or the surface raw, and ten to twenty drops to the
gill, upon parts where the skin is sound. It is useful also, for
_boils_, and _carbuncles_ in the _early stage_, the _strong tincture_ to
be applied when the surface is sound, and (to boils) when the surface is
open, one drop to a gill of water.
