Last modified on January 17th, 2019

Dr. S.R. Phatak describes the clinically confirmed symptoms of the homeopathic remedy Chenopodium Anthelminticum in his Concise Materia Medica, published in 1977.


      Just like Chelidonium it causes dull pain below the right angle of right scapula, but nearer to spine. It causes apoplexy and consequent right hemiplegia with aphasia. Stertorous breathing with a rattle as of a ball rolling loose in trachea. Heavy breathing with flapping of cheeks. Repeats the same action over and over again. Deafness progressive for human voice but great sensitiveness to sound as of a passing vehicle, or to distant sounds. Paralysis; with spasms of forearms and hand in flexion contraction of limbs. Jaundice. Aural vertigo. Meniere’s disease. Urine, profuse, foamy, yellow, burning.
