Bladder Symptoms – Eryngium

Role of homeopathic remedy Eryngium aquatium in particular cases related to urinary bladder….

Eryngium aquatium 30, cured a lady who had suffered with the following urinary symptoms: For two years she was compelled to pass urine about every half hour night and day; the urine was scalding. There was burning during and sometimes after passing urine. She was greatly reduced in flesh from the continued painful urging and loss of sleep. She often lost her urine in bed because she became so exhausted it was impossible for her to awake in time to accommodate the call. The urine was not examined chemically but was high coloured and strong smelling.

After taking the remedy during the day she arose only twice the following night, after which she slept well and rapidly recovered her strength and flesh. She was upwards of fifty years of age. No cause could be discovered for the irritable bladder.

I have seen similar bladder symptoms cured with this remedy (Eryngium aq.) when used in the 3x, 6x, 12x, 30x, in a surprising manner. The continuous teasing, and dribbling, drop by drop, smarting and burning night and day, I have often seen disappear under its use.

It is uncommon for the exaggerated sexual desire to be present, unlike Cantharis

The patient is generally better in a warm place, unlike Apis.
