Some varieties of red wine will cure nocturnal enuresis in children, owing to the iron contained therein. Dose night and morning.

Dr. S. B. Dickerman, of Abington, Mass., reports a case of enuresis cured with Ferrum phos. 200th. The enuresis occurred in the daytime; he seldom wet the bed at night. The guiding symptoms emphasize its use in diurnal enuresis.
Case of incontinence of urine due to loss of muscular power, cured by Ferrum phos
Transactions American Institute, 1882, p. 181.
Dr. Schussler, in a private communication to Dr. Zoeppritz, mentions the case of a lad to whom he had given, without effect, Ferrum phos. for enuresis. A pustular eruption near the corners of the mouth appeared for which he prescribed Natrum mur., which cured both the eruption and the enuresis.
Dr. Cornelius, Oldenberg, reports a case of spasmodic retention of the urine. No urine was at first excreted; even the catheter failed to bring any away. Magnesia phos. was given, which relieved somewhat; some urine was passed. In five days, no permanent or decided results being obtained from this remedy, Schussler's advice was followed, and accordingly Calcarea phos. was given, which cured in one day. Some two months later another attack came on, which was likewise immediately cured by Calcarea phos., for on the following day the patient was well. All. Horn. Zeit., 1885, p. 70.
Dr. Criiwell reports on incontinence of urine: When I became acquainted with Dr. Schussler's preparations I was very anxious to test the effects of Kali phos., as Dr. Schitssler recommends this against paralysis and paralytic conditions. Whoever has been occupied with the study of psychology is naturally ready to suspect paralysis everywhere. I acknowledge I may have given Kali phos. too frequently, as I was desirous to find out what it could do. For various reasons it led me to give it for incontinency. I gave it three times daily in a little water. In five cases, two of which I treated without good results, Kali phos. brought about amazingly rapid improvement. With a young girl, set. 7, I had until lately to repeat the remedy every time it was given up, as the incontinency always returned when it was discontinued. The most successful case was that of an old gentleman, set. 60. No doubt in this case there existed a sub-paralytic condition of the sphincter muscle. Some months after treatment he called back to say that he was perfectly cured, but desired to have some of the powders, simply by way of precaution. (From Schussler.)
Lad, set. 10, after homeopathic treatment had been unsuccessful, suffered with enuresis, urine pale, watery and very profuse. Ferrutn phos. 6x, a powder in hot water three times daily, cured. (C. W. Hakes, M. D.)
INCONTINENCE OF URINE
Lady, set. 35, had had trouble for three years, and could assign no cause thereto; was able to retain the urine at night but not in daytime, when she passed large quantities of water involuntarily. General health good. Ferrtim phos. 3x, four times a day. A week later she reported that she could now retain the urine much better during the day. The medicine was continued for three weeks longer, when she informed me that the power over the bladder was now complete, and that she was better than she had been for two years. Nine months afterwards the patient came to me again with a return of the malady; and although she was then enciente, Ferrutn, phos. again completely stopped the incontinence. (Wilde.)
Nephritis (chronic). Case of Dr. Cornelius, of Oldenburg, characterized by albuminous urine containing casts, specific gr, 1,016, great debility, palpitation, headache, etc. Natrum mur. 6 brought speedy improvement, increase in weight and with the aid of Calc. phos. restoration to health.
