Aconite. [Acon]

      Acute haemorrhages call for **Aconite when there is anxiety and fever, and a profuse bright red flow. **Millefolium has the same bright red flow, but no anxiety or fever, and this remedy is most useful in active haemorrhages from the nose, lungs, or bowels of mechanical origin; epistaxis. It is a more active haemorrhage than that requiring **Hamamelis. It also corresponds to haemorrhages in typhoid fever with tympanitis. **Cactus. Haemorrhages with strong throbbing of the heart. **Ledum and Opium. Haemorrhages of drunkards; red, foamy blood. Ivins mentions **Bryonia as almost specific in passive epistaxis of young persons.

Bovista. [Bov]

      **Bovista produces a relaxation of the entire capillary system which, of course, favors haemorrhage. It is, therefore, useful in epistaxis, and in uterine haemorrhage when the uterus is engorged; it flows between the menstrual periods from any little over-exertion. Farrington gives as characteristic that the flow occurs chiefly or only at night or early in the morning. The surface of the body is puffy. **Ustilago is another haemorrhagic remedy; the flow is bright red, partly fluid and partly clotted; slight manipulations, such as a digital examination, cause the haemorrhage. The 6th potency is recommended. **Thlaspi bursa pastoris has been successfully used in uterine haemorrhages. **Mitchella. Uterine haemorrhages of bright red blood accompanied by dysuria. **Platinum has dark painless haemorrhages; clots hard and dark, mixed with fluid blood, passing away in a thick tarry mass. It may be accompanied by a sensation as if the body were growing larger. Painful sensitiveness and constant pressure in the mons veneris and genital organs.
