Prescriptions On Peculiar Chareceteristic Symptoms- Agnus And Sepia

I had a LEUCORRHOEA patient, 35 ys, housewife, married, mother of two children. Aversion to coition, sexual desire diminished, menses late, dimness of vision during menses, chilly patient, desires death, indifference to everything, always sad and depressed. All symptoms clearly indicated SEPIA. On repertorization also, sepia came on top. I was very confident to prescribe SEPIA, but it failed. I changed potencies, tried different samples of same potency- but it was a total disaster. I was confused what to do next.I decided to take case once again. All symptoms were same as first consultation. But during interrogation about her ‘dimness of vision during menses’, she said: “NO, it is not during menses. Dimness of vision starts 24 hours before menses appear, it is very troublesome for me. But once the flow starts, this dimness suddenly disappears”.That small difference in a particular symptom made a great turn for this case. I changed the rubric ‘dimness of vision during menses’ into ‘dimness of vision before menses’.Following rubrics were selected:

1. [Kent]Genitalia – Female : COITION : Aversion to
2. [Kent]Genitalia – Female : LEUCORRHOEA
3. [Kent]Genitalia – Female : MENSES : Late
4. [Kent]Vision : DIM : Menses : Before
5. [Kent]Generalities : COLD REMEDIES (Gibson Miller’s)
6. [Kent]Genitalia – Female : DESIRE : Diminished
7. [Kent]Mind : SADNESS, mental depression
8. [Kent]Mind : SADNESS, mental depression
9. [Kent]Mind : INDIFFERENCE, apathy, etc
10.[Kent]Mind : DEATH : Desires

Now, AGNUS comes as the only drug covering all the selected rubrics. SEPIA, even though comes top in total marks, does not cover the rubric ‘Vision : DIM : Menses : Before’.[Kent]Vision : DIM : Menses : Before:- Agn., Bell., Cinnb.[Kent]Vision : DIM : Menses : During:- Cycl., Graph., Nat-m., Puls., Sep., Sil.’Dimness of vision before menses’ is the ‘pivotal symptom’ in this case, that shifted the balance from SEPIA to AGNUS. I decided to try AGNUS. And it worked magnificently. Of course, I used SEPIA also in inter-current doses. Cure was complete.

SIMILIMUM ULTRA Homeopathic Software I am not a scientist, academician, scholar, professional homeopath or anybody with 'big credentials', but an old lay man, a retired government servant, who accidentally happened to fall into the deep waters of the great ocean of homeopathic knowledge during his fiery teenage years, and was destined to live a whole life exploring the mysteries of that wonderful world with unending enthusiasm. My interest in homeopathy happened very accidentally when I was only 20 years old UNDERGRADUATE ZOOLOGY student, through a constant relationship with a local practitioner who happened to be father of my classmate. I was a regular visitor in his clinic, where from I started reading BOERICKE MATERIA MEDICA and other homeopathic books, which helped me to cure myself my troublesome asthma that have been haunting me since my childhood days. I became a voracious reader of homeopathy.
