ACIDUM BENZOICUM signs and symptoms from the Characteristic Materia Medica by William Burt of the homeopathic medicine ACIDUM BENZOICUM


Through the organic nervous system, it acts on the urinary organs, joints, fibrous tissue, and skin.


Especially adapted to rheumatic or gouty subjects, where the urine is excessively fetid.

The urine is high colored, with an exceedingly strong smell; dark-colored and much heavier than normal.

Shifting rheumatoid pains in the joints.

Concretions in the joints, with rheumatism, or gout, with strong-smelling urine.

Articular rheumatism, with fetid urine.

Symptoms and pains appear first on the left side; then on the right.

I have found it very serviceable in old people, when a high- colored and strong-smelling urine dribbles away, partly from want of power on the part of the bladder to retain it.
