      Ox Gaul. Bilis Bovina. *N. O. Ruminantia. Inspissated gall triturated with sugar of milk, or lower dilutions may be made with water.


Asthma. Constipation. Diarrhoea. Gall-stones. Headache. Indigestion. Rheumatism.


*Ox gall is a remedy of very ancient use. It is used in the old- school mostly as a purgative, for preventing putrefactive changes in the intestines, and for increasing peristalsis. It is sometimes given along with *Opium to prevent the constipating effect of that drug. In the stomach bile is a foreign body, precipitating pepsin and causing irritation of the stomach. It does not aid the digestion either of albumen or of farinaceous substances. *Fel. t. has been proved homoeopathically by Buchner, and has produced a few characteristic symptoms, disordered digestion, diarrhoea, headache, pains in joints, and cramps. It removed a tendency to sleep after eating. Several symptoms were noticed in nape of neck.


*Compare: Cholesterinum, Merc-d.
