Homeopathy Remedies for Voices, Auditory Hallucinations

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

Naja tripudians [Naja]

      A case is related by Dr. Hayward, of England, of a man who had the hallucination of hearing voices inaudible to others, or who actually heard them?, quarrelling or reviling, as he affirms. At any rate, they were very real to him. Naja caused them to cease. This drug, the venom of the deadly East Indian cobra, is best given in the 30th potency.

Anacardium [Anac]

      This drug, in the 30th potency, is indicated in those persons who hear imaginary? voices afar off. The patient, apparently as sane as the doctor, says he or she hears these voices. The doctor, sometimes, can find no pathological reason and thinks it imagination. Be it either way the drugs named have dissipated the fancy.
