W. J. Martin, M. D., in the Transactions Penna. Horn. Med. Society, 1886, reports a case of persistent vomiting, accompanied by pain in the abdomen, cured by Magnes. phos. 12 after the ordinary homeopathic remedies had failed.
A young girl about 18 consulted me (so writes a student of medicine) for painless vomiting, which had existed for a long time, and occurred after almost every meal. The color of her face and the visible mucous membranes were pale. Menstruation was scanty and delayed. No other Symptoms of importance; pregnancy was not present. I ordered Ferrum phos. 6x. After a time I accidentally saw the patient again, and received the pleasing news that the vomiting had entirely disappeared from the commencement of the use of the remedy. (Monatsblatter.)
F. R., fifty years old. Had suffered for eight months from weight in stomach about an hour after each meal, with nausea, sometimes vomiting and much accumulation of water in the mouth. Pulsatilla had been given with little or no result, also Natrum and Nux vomica. His condition became worse. Vomiting of food set in after each meal some three or four hours. Ferrum phos. third every hour. This relieved the condition at once.
H., eleven years old. Weakly and of slim build, suffered for a long time from vomiting of food, stitches in the side and palpitation of the heart. Closer examination showed his liver and kidneys to be healthy. Ferrum phos. cured in four days.
L. S., twenty-four years. Medium height, pale, poorly-nourished aspect, had for several weeks vomiting of food immediately after sating. Patient is weak and sleepy in day-time. Ferrum phos. in a few days markedly improved the condition; the vomiting disappeared and the other conditions were beneficially influenced.
E. E., forty-two years. Sickly build and delicate; four years ago had a gastritis and was cured by Homeopathy. Since that time, how-ever, has had a weakness of the digestive organs which troubles him from time to time. Six weeks ago a marked aggravation set in. Feeling of fullness in the epigastrium, many eructations, vomiting, rush of blood to the head and cold feet. Examination showed the region of the stomach to be swollen and sensitive; liver, kidneys, heart, etc, healthy. Ferrutn phos. 3x, every hour. In three days the patient was all right, vomiting had entirely ceased and the remaining symptoms had lessened markedly.
E. B., thirty-five years. Sufferer for several weeks from stomach disorder, with pressure, vomiting of food immediately after each meal; often redness of the face. Vomiting ceased after twelve hours' use of Ferrum phos., and never returned.
L. R., thirty years. Scrawny and anaemic; suffered from stomach disorders for years. These for the past eight weeks have been much worse. There is present vomiting of food and patient feels in consequence thereof weak and exhausted. On the twenty-sixth of October she received Ferrum phos. Four days later her condition was improved; vomiting occurred less often and the case progressed to complete recovery.
