PARALYSIS

( )

Calcarea phos
Coldness, numbness, crawling and weakness in lower extremities. Nervous prostration. Bruised feeling in the back after exhausting diseases and from standing in wet.

Kali phos
Facial paralysis, loss of stimulating power over some muscles. The mouth is distorted, being drawn over to the unparalyzed side. Creeping paralysis in which the progress of the disease is slow; there is tendency to wasting, with loss of sense of touch, etc. Locomotor paralysis, loss of motor or stimulating power. Paralysis of the vocal cords, loss of voice through relaxed or paralyzed conditions of the laryngeal muscles. Atrophic paralysis, in which the vital powers are reduced and stools have a putrid odor. All varieties of paralysis require this, the chief remedy, such as partial, paraplegia, hemiplegia, facial or ptosis. Paralysis that comes on suddenly. Infantile paralysis.

Magnesia phos
Languid and exhausted, unable to sit up. Complaints from standing in cold water (Calcarea). Paralysis agitans, involuntary shaking and trembling of the hands and limbs, or of the head, an affection of the muscles. Muscular paralysis caused by a disturbed or diseased condition of the different nerve-fibres which convey the motor stimulus to the muscles. Paralysis of white nerve-fibres.

Natrum phos
Weakness of lower limbs from the knees down. Legs give under her when she walks. (Farrington, Pennsylvania Homeopathic Medical Society, 1875.)

Silicea
Paralysis from tabes dorsalis. Trembling in limbs. Debility. Wandering pains. Paralytic weakness of the joints. Progressive sclerosis of the posterior column.

CLINICAL CASES
A. G. had a love affair, and, in order to kill herself, took poison,
which left her with paralyzed hands and feet. I gave her six powders of Calcarea phos., and four weeks later she wrote me that she could go around the room by taking hold of the furniture. She received six more powders, which completed her recovery. (Monatsblatter.)
Kali phos. with a few doses of Calcarea phos. as intercurrent, cured a case of facial paralysis from working in the water.
