Clinical Hints by Foubister

Aethusacynapium 200 – Value to students who “cannot think” during an examination. A dose in the morning and then, if required, before each part of the examination.

Anthracinum 30 or 200 – For boils or carbuncles with much induration,Anthracinum is practically certain to help, without any other indications.

Arnica montana 30 or 200 – well – known to be the main remedy for surgical shock. Useful for pre and post-operative homoeopathic treatment, combined if necessary with analgesics and suitably altered individually when required.

Baryta carb or Baryta muriaticaare remedies to be considered carefully in old age and when there is arteriosclerosis, but one or other is almost certain to help if a patient looks many years older than his actual age.

Causticum 200– chief remedy for loss of voice from whatever cause. Causticum is the routine remedy for retention of urine after operation. For children who stop growing after a burn, Causticum may be an invaluable remedy.

Cholesterinum 30, 200 – has a beneficial effect on many patients suffering from coronary insufficiency, and may be justified as a prescription when other remedies fail, or there are no clear-cut indications for another remedy.

Graphites 200 – almost specific for granulation tissue following burns.

Hypericum 6, 30, 200 – well known for its effects on “injured nerves” such as in painful abrasions, crushed fingers, and for the after effects of spinal injury. Hypericum oil is an invaluable remedy for bed sores.

Mancinella 200 – probably the main remedy for “fear of insanity”.

Sulphuric acid 200 – When bruising persists for an unduly long time, whether Arnica has been given or not, Sulphuric acid is almost always the remedy.

Phosphorus 200Is a valuable remedy for pre- operative anticipation, including dental operations.

Ferrum metallicum 30 – For vomiting after tonsillectomy. A dose of Ferrum metallicum 30 given after each instance of vomiting usually causes rapid improvement.

Coccus cacti 3x – 30, 200–  is almost a specific remedy for the later stages of whooping cough, or at any stage when there is a paroxysmal cough accompanied by vomiting of thick glairy mucous (like white of egg). It is likely to be useful for any patient with this symptomatology, whatever the cause.

Chloroform 30, 200 or 1M – When there is a history of severe reaction to chloroform anaesthesia, such as excessive vomiting, and there is liver or gall bladder disease, this may be an invaluable remedy. Children born under chloroform anaesthesia who are liverish may also benefit greatly. It should be considered after caesarian section. In taking a case history it is worthwhile to enquire into any undue effects of anaesthesia.

Chininumarsenicosum 30–  almost a specific remedy for children who getdiarrhoea from eggs.

The Story of Carbon

Ferenc Szecsődi

I worked two cases where the patients successfully recovered with the help of  Carbon C200. During the case witnessing, they managed to reach the sensation level. The first patient was a boy (2001) with Enuresis nocturna.He  often dreamed that a train is moving on.He is on thetrack and can not move. The sensation in the dream was:

  • Helplessness (“I can’t do anything,” “I can’t move on,” “I stand helplessly,”)
  • Weakness (“I can’t move,” “I freeze at the crucial moment”)

The second patient was a man (1991)with pollen allergy.He had delusions, that he can not succed, and  he has no value.On the sensation level he felt:

  • Stagnation (“I go blank instantaneously,” “things happen, and I’m just standing,” “I don’t move”)
  • I’m on the brink (of something) (“no ups, no downs,” “between

life  and  death”)   and he drew  me  a  picture of an EKG, which is on my


I  prescribed the remedy on the knowledge of the sensation of carbon, which is taught by  the Indian school. (Sanakaran, Mahesh Gandi, Joshies) I used the book”Quick Book of Minerals and Animals”  from Joshies.  (2013).  Carbon the remedy does not exist. I made its on my Remedy Maker –(Radionics device)

Regarding Carbon

Most of the coal beds were formed in the Carboniferous geologic period approximately 300-360 million years ago. Intensive geological processes, like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and the creation of lakes, contributed to the formation of coal beds. Large quantities of wood were buried in soil and underwater, and due to the anaerobic circumstances and the necessary pressure, and temperatures, coal beds were formed. The coal beds were made of Equisetales (horse-tails), Filicales (ferns) and early gymnosperm plants (Lignophytes). During the formation of coal beds, all the oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen disappeared from these plants.

Carbon has 6 protons, 6 neutrons, and 6 electrons. Its atomic weight is 12. The atomic configuration is 1s2, 2s2, 2p2. Carbon is characterized by sp hybridization, which means that an electron from the 2s orbit jumps to the 2p orbit. The number of equal electrons becomes four, and four covalent bonds can be formed. This bond is extremely stable and it contains a large amount of energy. Because of this, carbon has high energy content and it is stable and inert at room temperature. It needs 800 degrees Centigrade to ignite.

The centre of Carbon is energy and lack thereof.

The sensations of Carbon (depicted in the painting below) are:

  • Helplessness (“I can’t do anything,” “I can’t move on,” “I stand helplessly,” “I have little energy”)
  • Weakness (“I can’t move,” “I lack motivation,” “there’s no progress,” “I freeze at the crucial moment”)
  • Stagnation (“I’m standing,” “I go blank instantaneously,” “things happen, and I’m just standing,” “I don’t move”)
  • I’m on the brink (of something-“no ups, no downs,” “between life and death”)

Passive reactions: standing, lying down, motionlessness

The title of the painting is ‘Carbon’ – acrylic canvas, dimensions: 60×80 cm. Artist: Dr Szecsődi Ferenc, 2018
