Homeopathy Remedies for Goitre

Anshutz gives a useful therapeutic differential diagnosis of the condition Goitre, with the most useful homeopathic remedies. Therapeutic byways by E.P. Anshutz, published in 1900….

Calcarea fluorica [Calc-f]

      It has been said that Calcarea fluor. 6x, 5 tablets, about three times a day has cured goitre. This drug is a great remedy for osseous tumors, and cataract, so there is no reason why, if this be true, that it should prove to be efficacious in goitre.

Fucus vesiculosis [Fuc]

      Time and again this drug comes to the front as a cure for goitre, i.e. fairly recent cases not old ones. The dosage runs from 20 drops to a dram, once or twice a day. It is sea-wrack, or sea bladder, tincture.

Magnesia phosphorica [Mag-p]

      it is reported that cases of goitre have been cured by Mag. phos.


Gunther’s goitre remedy.-This remedy is from the folk-lore of Germany and was favourably mentioned by Dr.Lutze in his Manual. It is a powder trituration and is to be taken internally, once a day. The folk-lore contends that it acts better if taken during the increase of the moon. It has undoubtedly seemed to cure cases of this disease and surely will harm no one. Physicians have reported cures by this remedy. Lutze gives the ingredients, sponge, etc., which seems to link it with Fucus ves.
