THE RADICAL CURE OF FISTULA BY MEDICINES

We are here principally concerned with the homeopathic treatment of fistula found near the anus- fistula-in-ano, and that a very remarkable one, of urinary fistula being narrated.

RECURRENT CIRCUMANAL ABSCESS AND FISTULA

Case of a married London merchant, thirty seven years of age, suffering from recurrent fistula and circumanal abscess, treated successfully with homeopathy remedies.

SIMPLE FISTULA

A case of simple anal fistula treated successfully with the homeopathy remedy Hydrastis can in a very short period.

HEPATIC FISTULA

Certain people with fistula have enlarged livers as concomitants, and our common hepatics readily cure them. Chelidonium majus. Carduus Maria, Myrica cerifera and Berberis vulgaris, cure the liver and at the same time the fistula.

FISTULA-IN-ANO

Solanum nigrum is recommended as a local application”in most fistula.” This quality it no doubt has in common with so many of the solanaceous plants. Thuja, Silicea, Hydrastis, Merc are other useful remedies.

FISTULA IN AN INFANT

A case of fistula in anus in a child, which was treated with Kali carb, Aurum foliatum, Psorinum and Thuja homeopathic remedies according to the presenting symptoms.

PROLAPSUS AND THREATENED FISTULA

He had been operated on for fistula, and also for piles and prolapse; but notwithstanding all this beautiful rectal surgery, the unfortunate patient is never comfortable at the seat.

TUBERCULOUS FISTULA BY INFECTION

A certain number of cases of anal fistula in middle-aged, highly-nourished men come under my observation, and I have been struck with the fact their wives had either died of, or were suffering from, consumption.

URINARY FISTULA – A REMARKABLE CASE

Several months of persistent treatment resulted in a cure of the gonorrhoea, and of most of the manifestations of syphilis, but the terrible fistula persisted, notwithstanding Mercurius, Aurum, Acid. nit., Stillingia, Iodatum, and Silicea.

GENERAL REFLECTIONS ON FISTULA

A case of anal fistula where the discharge was mistakenly thought to be leucorrhoea. The principal remedies used were Thuja occidentalis. Hydrastis, Sepia, Chelidonium, Hepar, Silicea, Psorinum, Sabina, and Aqua silicata.

THE PRE-FISTULAR ABSCESS

The author gives example of abscess after a thorn gets in skin as a similar effort by nature to vent a prefistular anal abscess.

TREATMENT BY MANIPULATION

Nature is always trying to rid herself of unhealthy products, and manipulation, by encouraging movement in congested parts, assists the blood to throw off the poison which infects it, and drives it for refuge to the surface, which it will then try to burst through.

CONCLUSION

After practically demonstrating the feasibility of a radical cure of fistula by homeopathic medicines, the author claims it is superior than surgery.

SECOND EDITION – CASES OF FISTULA

Since the 1st Edition of this small work on the medicinal cure of fistula, a considerable number of cases of fistula have come under my professional care, so that I can reaffirm that the treatment of the fistular disease by operation is irrational and harmful. Homeopathy remains the most effective way to cure fistula.
