A remedy having a wide field in genito-urinary diseases. It is indicated in pathological emissions, priapism and prostatorrha. The provings show an action limited to the sexual organs, producing a typical sexual neurasthenia. Specific for hookworm disease (Chenopodium).
Mental.--Irritable, arbitrary, must have his own way. Craves company. Energy gone.
Back.--Tired, aching throughout lumbar region. Worse, mental and physical labor.
Male.--Profuse, nightly, seminal emissions with lascivious dreams of a perverted character. Priapism. Urinary burning and subsequent dribbling of urine. Polyuria. Urates increased. Phosphates decreased.
Sleep.--Awakes tired and unrefreshed. Lascivious and fantastic dreams.
Relationship.--Compare: Carbon Tetrachloride as a remedy for Hookworms, according to Dr. Lambert, Suva, Fiji who employed it in 50,000 cases.
"1. Carbon tetrachloride is a vermifuge and vermicide of great potency, and has shown itself to be the best vermifuge for the treatment of hookworm in a country where the disease predominates.
"2. It gives little discomfort to the patient, is palatable, required no preparation of the patient, and when pure is apparently not toxic-all of which features are of advantage in a popular campaign.
"W. G. Smillie, and S. B. Pessoa, of Sao Paulo, Brazil, also have found carbon tetrachloride to be extremely efficient in removing hookworms. A single dose of 3 Cc given to adults has been proved to remove 95 per cent of all the hookworms harbored".
Modalities.--Thymol. Worse, mental and physical labor.
