Cramp in the heart. in the forenoon he is suddenly attacked by a cramp which affects the whole hypochondriac region with tightness, even to arrest of breath, causing anxiety, without any loss of breath, with extremely painful surging, congestive squirming, warm sensation in the middle of the distended and tense pit of the stomach, extending through the spine, as if the circulation in the large bloodvessels were stopped, with imperceptible, very irregularly intermitting, and tremulous beating of the heart, and a similar pulse, with paroxysms of anxiety and fear of an attack of apoplexy, obliging him to jump up suddenly and to move about in a dizzy paralytic way.
after lasting three hours, disappearing gradually, with most violent, almost uninterrupted eructations of air and much flatulence, though the congestive cramp at the heart still continues the next day, but in the evening, while sitting still, it was associated with violent pain in the back, and after a restless night's sleep, with much tossing about, there remained a suppressed, irregular, intermittent pulse and action of the heart, which only gradually improved (fifth month).
since that time similar paroxysms recur for a long time at shorter or longer intervals, mostly in the evening, sometimes in the night, seldom lasting all day, allowing one to lie only on the back at night, and always aggravated when he lies on the side.
with frequent and profuse micturition, and with a very sunken, pale-gray expression of the face. During the thirteenth month there occurs a somewhat different attack of "heart cramp;" after an uneasy sleep an oppressive anxiety about the heart in the morning, with a quite suppressed small pulse, intermittent and irregular, for a long time, with a tremulous feeling within the heart, imperceptible beating of the heart, obliging him frequently to gasp for air, with a feeling as if he would suffocate, though he could take a deep breath, with dizzy confusion frequently rising into the head, obliging him to rise and walk about, with deep, pressive aching in the pit of the stomach, which is distended, with enormous eructations of gas from the stomach, the emission of which affords relief.
all this increases constantly during the forenoon, begins to diminish somewhat, towards noon, and only ceases entirely in the evening with emission of flatus and return of the normal pulse. The whole attack was repeated on the fourth day, but was less severe, then again on the seventh day, in the evening, always beginning with spasmodic accumulation of gas in the stomach and intestines, arrest of the circulation, passing off with eructations of gas and relief,.
Asthma. at first he feels as if the breath were confined to the stomach, as if it would be twisted about.
then, with every respiration, the abdomen is deeply retracted between the pit of the stomach and the navel, with suffocative pressure, loss of all power, and loss of breath, while, at the same time, the trachea seems filled with firmly adherent tenacious mucus, which cannot be raised by a spasmodic cough.
these attacks become constantly more frequent, more violent, and more persistent, and during the first few weeks reach a hitherto unknown severity, with icy coldness of the feet and general weakness.
after the fifth week improvement begins, the paroxysms being shorter, easier, and more infrequent, the expectoration and cough loosen, the sleep becomes quiet, and the strength returns.
only at times more or less violent paroxysms alternate with freedom therefrom, until after four weeks more there occurs an unusually violent coryza, with fever and catarrhal cough, after the cessation of which the asthma seems to have disappeared entirely.
since that time a slight attack has occurred only occasionally, though every evening, from 5 to 6 and from 10 to 11, and at 3 A.M., there returns difficulty of breathing, with whistling rattling in the trachea, but always very transient, and when coughing, anxiety, until, in the twelfth week, the glans penis and the urethra become red, inflamed, and swollen, with burning, itching, and sticking, and with the appearance of small, sore, white, superficial, suppurating spots and condylomatous growths, with a gonorrhoeal discharge, without having been exposed to contagion.
this latter trouble returns again and again, at times for six months, disappearing of itself, at first in nine days, then in five to three days, and at last in twelve to twenty-four hours.
and keeping exact pace with this gonorrhoeal attack (only interrupted by two coryzas), the asthma, which had been most severe, and had proved intractable to every effort and incurable, and apparently nearly killing the patient, disappeared, with uninterrupted improvement, until the patient became perfectly well and the health was permanently restored,.

this coldness lasted more than half an hour, when the thighs began to be hot, so that they burnt the hands through the clothing, like a glowing coal, while at the same time the hands and feet were cold.
then he was seized with fatiguing cough, with efforts to vomit, ending at first in actual vomiting of mucus and some food, and at last of a bitter substance, which, however, soon disappeared, after which he had a natural taste, but nausea on every thought of food.
with these febrile attacks he had yawning and stretching of the limbs.
gradually he became warm, though whenever he moved he had a shaking chill.
the most distressing symptoms was the hawking of mucus, because he was always obliged to rise, which caused return of the shaking chill.
there were associated with these symptoms sticking pains in the metacarpal bones and falling asleep of the fingers of the right hand.
as the coldness disappeared he became thirsty, the head was very dull and heavy, with pressure in the forehead and eyes, especially in the right eyeball.

In the evening she suddenly became feverish, with stiffness in the chest.
afterwards a restless night, the fever gradually increased, with general dry heat and sleeplessness, slight perspiration only on the upper part of the body, painful lips, as if burnt, great weakness, coryza, and cough, with much expectoration and short difficult breath, slimy coated tongue, sour taste in the mouth, always after eating, loss of appetite, gnawing in the stomach, at night, which obliges him to eat at once.

here and there, especially in the arm, chest, and scrotum, there were white mottled spots. These symptoms lasted two weeks, followed by pocklike eruption on the chest, with general perspiration and itching of the skin, constant roaring in the ears, after which recovery commenced and progressed, with only the occurrence of several boils, which partly looked like condylomata. After this indubitable, characteristic, pronounced febrile intermezzo, there was a decided improvement of the gonorrhoeal taint, which had hitherto existed in consequence of vaccination, especially the onanism, emissions, and pressive paralysis approaching insanity, in a young man, and a complete cure followed,.
The effect of revaccination is changed.
three persona who had taken a dose of Thuja, four to eight weeks previously, exhibited peculiar symptoms on revaccination.
at first the vaccine developed in the usual acute manner, but after four days it began to be indistinct, and disappeared rapidly in a way never before observed under similar conditions without he action of the drug.
but the cure, which was progressing previously, was seriously interrupted by this continued poisoning, so that afterwards the cure was more difficult and more prolonged, and especially the weakness of mind rapidly approached idiocy,.
Violent indescribable pain in the left side of the forehead wakes him at night from a restless sleep, he becomes affected by an unaccountable awkwardness in all his accustomed movements (thirtieth day).
the two next days this awkwardness increases more and more, until in the evening of the third day he has a sensation of complete paralysis of the right arm.
the arm feels and moves as if it did not belong to him, of which he was conscious, without ability to alter it, with great general lassitude, dulness of the head, disagreeable voice, and extreme ill-humor.
this continued more or less severe till 11 P.M. of the fifth day, when he was suddenly seized with the most violent convulsions, beginning with extremely painful flexion of the toes of the right foot, extending thence to the right side upward, which became quite stiff, extended, and rigid, causing loud cries, arrest of breath, and at last mounting into the head, which jerked back and forth incessantly, and he lost consciousness.
on returning to himself, five hours later, he found himself fallen out of bed, lying on the floor, bathed in perspiration, with complete paralysis of the right leg, from the foot to the knee.
it also felt cold and dead and as heavy as a hundredweight, and he was unable to stand or move.
after a sleep of two hours he was able to rise and drag the paralyzed limb after him, after which it gradually improved, but was constantly affected by spasmodic drawing of the muscles up and down from the toes to the calf, at times rising into the thorax of the same side, and moving back and forth.
he also felt very sick, with excessive development of gas in the stomach and intestines, with excessive eructations in an almost uninterrupted stream from the mouth, together with emission of flatus. The next day spasmodic drawings in the whole right side continued.
he was unable to write, because he could not recall the letters of even proper names.
but he was able to dictate, though he seemed to grasp all ideas by the wrong end. Between 10 and 11 P.M. there was an attack of spasms, with incipient retraction of the toes, and drawing up and down in the muscles of the right side, with uneasiness and tossing from side to side, and difficult and late falling asleep, this, however, did not amount to a complete spasm. The next evening, at the same hour, there was a return of a similar attack, this time with accelerated pulse, and ending with a general perspiration of a rancid odor, which afforded relief.
since that time gradual improvement, with freedom from the attacks, which, however, recurred at the same hour for three evenings, but each time less severely. Subsequent to this there remained very speedy fatigue of the right side when walking, a contractive rigid feeling of the toes of the right foot, and deadness of the whole right index finger, and also of the first phalanx of the middle finger.
these, however, also come and go. Exactly a year after the first attack there appeared a general spasm in the evening, again followed by paralysis, with most violent headache and vertigo, rapid, bounding pulse, anxiety, spasmodic numbness and clumsiness of the left hand and of the right thigh, posteriorly as far down as the calf, twitching beneath the right eye, preventing falling asleep or lying upon the side.
there was no recurrence of the attack. Since that time the previous vertigo and the cramplike paralytic feeling of the right side gradually became weaker and weaker,.
Violent twitching in isolated muscular parts, which was strongest in the middle of the upper part of the right thigh and of the left arm.
in the ends of the fingers and toes the twitching was finer and more transient.
this muscular twitching was frequently repeated in different parts, and was one of the most troublesome symptoms.
for example, it still came on on the seventeenth day, and lasted for almost ten minutes in the chin,.
A paroxysm, commencing with intolerable pains in the head and teeth, spasmodic weeping, icy-cold feet and hands, leaden heaviness of both arms and groaning, the breath became very short, and often stopped entirely.
suddenly she lay motionless and without breathing, but with clenched fingers, with quiet and regular pulse.
after about ten minutes she took a deep breath, looked wanderingly at the bystanders, and seemed gradually to become conscious of what was said and done.
afterwards she felt very weak, and a constant sensation as of a draft of air blowing upon a small spot just below the limbs, which to that point had been cold. After a quarter of an hour the paroxysm was repeated, but was less severe and shorter, and ended with some perspiration. There continued during the whole paroxysm a sensation as if she would fall forward, which impelled the patient to grasp tightly, though standing up, at the same time it seemed as if her mind were absent in a star surrounded by the brightest light, which suddenly disappeared and left her in darkness in her bed.
these paroxysms returned every other day,.
Paroxysms. after yawning for two hours and scratching the head, a violent spasmodic screaming, while sitting with open eyes intermingled with delirious prattling of unintelligible words, raving, with sensitiveness to the approach or touch of those about her, at first with tossing about, and afterwards lying motionless, with closed eyes and dark redness of the face, followed at last by quiet sleep, until she woke confused and with weak memory.
during the paroxysm an unusual quantity of urine passed, and the right hand was spasmodically pressed against the genitals,.
(Chorea; a chorea that had lasted for years, constantly recurring, but always apparently cured by homoeopathic remedies (Belladonna Belladonna, Stramonium Stramonium, Agarica, Sulphur Sulphur, Calc Carb Calcarea), and this time returned in an aggravated form, began to decrease very decidedly, the third day after a dose of Thuja, and then gradually diminished day by day, till after three weeks there was no further trace of it, while at the same time the general health visibly improved. This cure has now lasted for more than two years, and seems permanent and radical),.

in the afternoon the same sort of a pain appeared in the left arm, shifted then to the upper part of the thigh of the same side, soon after appeared in both mastoid processes of the temporal bones, then in the frontal eminences, where the pain took more of a digging-twitching character, and finally reappeared in the extremities.
this wandering about of the pains continued through the following day (seventh and eighth days).
for several hours, in the forenoon, the pain remained in the neighborhood of the left wrist, and during the whole afternoon in the upper part of the left thigh (ninth day).
while lying down the pressing in the sacrum was fixed in the same spot for a whole hour.
it was diminished, and disappeared on motion, but afterwards appeared while lying in bed, in the lower part of the left thigh, in the same spot where it had already appeared once before (tenth day),.

The American Arbor Vitae is a "spiry evergreen attaining a height of from 20 to 50 feet, though generally not above 40, and a diameter of about 10 to 20 feet through the greatest breadth of foliage." It abounds in the upper zones of North America, from Pennsylvania northwards, where it "often forms what are commonly known as cedar-swamps. It grows upon the rocky banks of rivers, and in low, swampy spots, blossoming from May until June and maturing its fruit in autumn. The Arbor Vitae assumes a conical form with such true lines as to appear 'clipped,' thus forming one of our most valued high-hedge trees" (Millspaugh). Thuja was introduced to France from Canada in the reign of Francis I. of France, and it has now an honoured place in most of our gardens and shrubberies. The native habitat of Thuja is not without its importance in relation to therapeutics. It loves swamps.
it is Hahnemann's typical antisycotic and Grauvogl's hydrogenoid. Thuja is one of Hahnemann's discoveries. Most of the remedies of his materia medica had been known in a fashion before his time. Of the therapeutic properties of Thuja practically nothing was known till Hahnemann proved it. Subsequent observers have only confirmed or added to Hahnemann's pathogenesis. Hahnemann found in Thuja the antidote to the miasm of the condition which he termed Sycosis, meaning thereby the constitutional disease resulting from constitutional gonorrhoea, and having as its characteristic manifestation excrescences, sometimes dry in the form of warts, more frequently soft, spongy, emitting a fetid fluid with a sweetish odour something like herring brine, bleeding readily and having the coxcomb or cauliflower form. Teste remarks that in the period when the doctrine of Signatures prevailed the "resinous callosities of the stems and leaves of Thuja occ. might have seemed an indication that the plant was the specific for sycosis and warts." Teste dismisses this idea, but he asks whether resinous substances which have the power of modifying vegetable juices in a peculiar way may not affect the animal fluids in the same manner. He includes Castor Equi Castor. in his Thuja group, and gives an instance in which it acted on fig-warts. Castor Equi Castor. is the product of an animal which subsists on the bark of resinous trees.
Hering gives this as the action of Thuja ($51$) on the fluids "dissolution of fluids of the body, which become acrid, probably caused by Thuja perverting lymphatic secretions.
disturbs digestion and sanguification".
and this (2) in the vegetative sphere "A surplus of producing life.
nearly unlimited proliferation of pathological vegetations, condylomata, warty sycotic excrescences, spongy tumours, and spongy pock exudates organise hastily.
all morbid manifestations are excessive, but appear quietly, so that the beginning of the diseased state is scarcely known." Boenninghausen found Thuja both preventive and curative in an epidemic of small-pox. It aborted the process and prevented pitting. In veterinary practice Thuja has proved curative in farcy and in "grease." These facts open up another great branch of Thuja's homoeopathicity.
its anti-vaccinal action. This extension was made by Kunkel and Goullon following on Boenninghausen's experience with small-pox. On this subject no one has written more forcibly or lucidly than Burnett (Vaccinosis and its Cure by Thuja). "Arbor Vitae nomen omen," says Burnett on his title-page. And in his hands Thuja has proved indeed a tree of life to numberless sufferers from the vaccinal taint. By "vaccinosis" Burnett means the disease known as vaccinia, the result of vaccination, plus "that profound and often long-lasting morbid constitutional state engendered by the vaccine virus." To this state Thuja is homoeopathic, and therefore curative and preventive of it. Burnett makes the profound observation, which I can confirm, that the vaccine virus does not need to "take" (that is, to set up vaccinia) in order to produce the vaccinal dyscrasia that "not a few persons date their ill-health from a so-called unsuccessful vaccination." So that vaccinosis may exist apart from vaccinia. The antivaccinal action of Thuja is part of its antisycotic action vaccinia is a sycotic disease. Burnett gives the case of an infant ten weeks old, whom he was called to see as it was supposed to be dying. He found it ghastly white and in collapse. There was nothing to account for this except that the baby had had its wet-nurse changed two or three days before. The wet-nurse was questioned and declared herself quite well and looked it.
but "her arm was a little painful." She had been revaccinated in the Marylebone Workhouse the day before she took charge of the patient. Burnett found the vaccine eruption just turning into the pustular stage. He concluded that the infant was sucking the vaccinal poison with its nurse's milk. He gave Thuja 6 to both infant and nurse. The baby gradually improved the same day, and next morning was, though still pale, practically well, and the vaccinal vesicles on the nurse's arm had withered. Burnett quotes a case of vaccinal rash in an infant following the vaccination of its mother, who was nursing it. The effects of chronic vaccinosis are protean. Prominent among them are neuralgias (of which Burnett gives many examples), morbid skin disorders, indigestion, and constipation.
warts and new growths of many kinds. In these effects a favourite method of Burnett's was to give a course of twenty-four numbered powders, only three or four of them medicated with Thuja 30.
one to be taken at bedtime. With the same prescription he cured many cases of paralysis, his indications being Left side of body.
a cluster of small warts on the forehead of a boy which had lasted eighteen months and followed the scratch of a cat N/A . Thuja Ø in fractional doses and Thuja Ø painted on cured permanently in three weeks. A gentleman, about 50, consulted me recently about a wart on the right side of his head. He was bald, and the wart was black and unsightly. It had been growing some months, and he was somewhat anxious about it as his father had had a similar wart develop in the same locality at the same age, and it had never left him. My patient had been twice vaccinated. Thuja 30, twenty-eight powders, one in seven medicated, one at bedtime. In one month there was much reduction.
Thuja was repeated, and in little over two months the wart was gone. Burnett says Thuja is the remedy for fatty tumours, which he regards as sycotic in nature. Thuja not only produces symptoms of the secondary stage of gonorrhoeal and vaccinal affections, it also produces urethritis and a variolous eruption. Dudgeon has reported acute urethritis with yellow discharge lasting altogether a fortnight as the result of chewing a Thuja cone. Mersch (H. M., xxx. 686) gave Thuja 3 to a patient as a prophylactic against small-pox. This patient and another who took it for the same purpose developed simple urethritis. Mersch proved Thuja Ø on himself and some others ($51$) M. N. had rose-coloured blotches on the back, and several days after leaving off the medicine had warts develop on the outer side of the root of the thumb. These were still present three years after, though smaller and softer. (2) Mersch himself, who took Thuja for fifteen days, had heavy sensation in the head on waking, an eruption of desquamative annular blotches, and from the twelfth day a tearing along the right arm which compelled him to keep the arm flexed for eight days, agg. attempting to extend the arm.
slightly amel. by heat. A small soft wart appeared at the external portion of right middle finger. This disappeared a month after the proving was ended. ("agg. By extension" is a characteristic of Thuja; it = cracking in joints. The arm symptoms are also agg. when the limb hangs down, which is also an extension.) Apropos of the annular scaly blotches, I had a case of psoriasis of the legs in a youth which was benefited by Thuja more than by any other remedy, though the Thuja was given for some other affection. A patient came to Raue (H. R., ii. 162) complaining that his semen had a very offensive smell. Raue did not know of a remedy producing the symptom, but selected Thuja. Two doses of the 200th and one of the 15th were taken. The man was at the time in the hands of an eminent dentist for his teeth, which for five years had been a great trouble to him on account of their extreme sensitiveness to cold.
the gums were in a deplorable state and the teeth were encrusted with tartar. After receiving the Thuja the extreme sensitiveness of the teeth disappeared in one night.
then the offensive odour of the semen. In four days the patient again saw the dentist, who was amazed to find his gums quite sound. Moreover, the patient had lost an oppression of the chest which had been troubling him some time. Goullon (Leip. Pop. Zeit. f. H., translated Rev. H. Belge, September, 1895) relates the cure of a mental state by Thuja 30x. He remarks that, following the advice of Kunkel, he gives only a single dose of Thuja, one or two drops of the tincture on sugar or milk, at bedtime. When he has given a second dose the following night he has observed new symptoms "Thuja in fact has a very marked action on sleep, and its symptoms appear by preference at night.
the headache, for example." This is the case Miss R., 40; complained of her head, especially at certain moments, when ideas which did not concern her in the least came to her as if some one else was thinking by her side.
Thuja produces a confusion in the thoughts which patients cannot rid themselves of on account of great weakness and pain in the head.
This patient had for months been attending on a paralysed sister, frequently getting up in the night and worrying herself about numberless things.
Her nervous system was very impressionable, and for weeks had reached a point of extreme over-excitement.
She could no longer calm herself, and in addition she sneezed and coughed much.
The problem was to give her sleep and take away the pain in the head.
Even when she was not obliged to getup she could not get sleep.
Her eyes were also very much irritated.
The patient afterwards described her condition thus "I felt in the anterior part of the head, principally the forehead, a sensation as if lead were compressing my eyes; these were inflamed, agg. by light, amel. in open air.
Before going to sleep I felt a congestion in the head with headache; at the same time queer, confused ideas which changed like a flash and fell upon the most odd things.
These were amel. when I opened my eyes or sat up.
Before my eyes images and statues arranged themselves.
If I wished to think of something sensible, in the twinkling of an eye I lost the thread of my ideas.
All this happened at night; during the day the wicked sprites did not appear.
My head and eyes pained me when there was much movement, as when several people were speaking at once." The effect of the dose she described thus After having taken the Thuja I tasted a sweet repose.
the next morning a complete transformation had taken place in the head, the weight was gone, the eyes were more fresh, the brain free." Goullon cured a lady who had had headache for a year.
on waking felt as if a tight hoop enclosed forehead, not passing away till noon.
Eyelids heavy as lead.
Thuja 10x, one close at bedtime, permanently cured.
A. W. Holcombe (Med. Vis., xii. 225) relates experiences bearing on the sleep and dreams of Thuja. ($51$) Mrs.
E., 48, had a growth, wart-like, about the size of a sixpence, on left temple.
It began as a slight roughness and itched at times.
Also growth about the same size on a hard palate (left), very sore.
Much headache, on left side of the head, throbbing in left temple, and the pains extend into left ear.
Cannot sleet after 3 a.m.
Dreams much of falling.
Feels smothering in a warm room.
Thirsty, agg. noon and afternoon.
Feet sweat much, offensive; sweats much about groins.
Thuja cm was given on October 25th.
By November 15th the growths and all the rest of the symptoms had disappeared. (2) Led by this same symptom, "almost every night, dreams of falling from a height," Holcombe cured a man, 30, of tertian fever with Thuja cm when a large number of other seemingly well-indicated remedies had failed.
Robert Farley (quoted A. H., xxiii. 446) relates the case of two children, aet. 5, who had what he graphically terms "urinary tantrums." Two hours after being put to bed they would wake kicking, crying, and refusing to answer a question.
This lasted an hour or more.
Asked if they wanted to urinate they would refuse to answer, strike at attendant, or even say "No." Finally it was found that if they were taken up and put on the closet they would urinate and then go to sleep readily.
One of the children developed signs of incipient inflammation of the left hip-joint.
The totality led to the selection of Thuja, which was given in the 200th.
After the first night there were no more "tantrums," and in two months the child was perfectly well.
This child's father had had gonorrhoea, treated by injection, some years before the patient was born.
But the other child's father had not had gonorrhoea.
In the latter case, which was exactly like the former, the cure was immediate; in the former case relief occurred on the second night.
C. W. Roberts (H. R., xii. 137) found Thuja Ø, in five- to seven-drop doses at bedtime, control nocturnal seminal emissions better than any other remedy. "Nocturnal seminal emission" is an emphasised symptom in M. M. P. Epulis is probably a malignant kind of sycotic hyperplasia.
Percy Wilde (H. W., xxi. 199) records the case of a young married lady who had a large epulis on the lower jaw, rapidly increasing in size, ulcerating on the surface, very painful, and filling the mouth with an ill-smelling secretion.
The entire tumour was removed by operation, and also the subjoined bone.
Three weeks later the tumour was as large as before and increased daily.
Thuja 1x was now given.
The growth stopped immediately; ulceration ceased; the pain disappeared.
In three weeks the gum was healthy and remained so permanently.
Villers (quoted A. H., xxi. 421) relates a case of scalp tumour in a youth of seventeen.
The tumour had existed two years, and had somewhat the appearance of a bean.
It was situated about the posterior edge of the parietal bone, was devoid of sensation, and the hair had disappeared from it, making it very conspicuous.
Thuja 30 was given, a dose every twenty days.
In four months the youth was almost cured, in five months entirely so, the hair having grown again completely over the spot.
George Royal (quoted A. H., xxiii. 387) relates a case of persistent cough cured with Thuja.
Miss X., 19, fair, had for three months a painless, dry cough.
The irritation was only in the throat.
There were six small growths at the back of the throat, and one near the vocal cord.
She never had a cough before.
Has leucorrhoea green and excoriating; menses a little too early.
Thuja 30 cured the growths and the cough in about three weeks.
Old-school observers (N. A. J. H., xv. 63) have found in Thuja an efficient haemostatic, locally applied, especially after tooth extraction.
R. B. Johnstone (H. P., ix. 257) gives some indications for Thuja in hernia ($51$) Women of sycotic history who have a tendency to left-side inguinal hernia after labour (Thuja, high). (2) When babies cry much the umbilicus protrudes, growing red and sore.
especially when the father has a sycotic history. (3) Left inguinal hernia in infants.
child cries all the time, and is only quiet when the left inguinal region is relieved from pressure, or the thigh is flexed on the abdomen.
Boenninghausen observed this symptom of Thuja, which bears on the action of Thuja on the sides and roots of teeth (a sycotic symptom), rather than on the crowns "on blowing nose, a pressing pain in the hollow tooth, at the side of it." The left ovarian pains of Thuja are remarkable.
They are severe, sometimes burning, extend down thigh, any attempt at exercise and especially walking agg.; they occur with every menstrual period, and are generally agg. before and during the flow.
The pain compels the patient to lie down; but lying on left side agg.
A keynote of Thuja is "Frequent micturition accompanying pains." For example "In evening, when in bed, terrible hammering and tearing in the ear, accompanied with micturition every half-hour and coldness of the legs up to the knees.
The desire of Thuja is sudden and urgent, it seems impossible to reach the vessel or make the necessary preparations, but the patient can control it if compelled.
There is severe cutting as with a knife at the end of micturition after the last drop has passed.
Thuja also has chronic incontinence from paralysis of sphincter vesicae.
This is related to the general paretic weakness of Thuja.
The patient feels she "could not go on exerting any longer." Burnett (H. W., xxv. 487) records a case of Usnea Barbata lichen urticatus in a boy of fourteen, which came into his hands after a long course of treatment, external, internal, and dietetic, at the hands of allopathic specialists without result.
The rash came periodically in warm weather; patient literally tore himself because of the irritation.
The rash was agg. on the left (vaccinated side).
Thuja 30 was given in infrequent doses.
The spots continued to appear for a week and then disappeared.
The skin remained clear in spite of the patient indulging in all kinds of previously forbidden foods.
Among the skin effects of Thuja the marks and stains must be borne in mind.
The skin is mottled and discoloured; brown or red mottled spots; discoloration of the backs of the hands and feet.
Villers (J. of Hcs., iv. 408) treated a girl of twelve, who had had headaches going from front to occiput and sometimes in temples.
Pains mostly came towards night, and were accompanied with an awful state of fear.
The only account she could give of her fear was that she saw green stripes.
Alone or in company, in the dark or in a well-lighted room the dread was always the same.
Three years before, the child had had an abortive attack of scarlatina, treated with cold compresses.
The urine had been abnormal all through the illness, but contained no albumen.
Thuja 200, every tenth day.
No more headache, nor fear.
Patient slept well from the first dose, and in a few days the urine became clear. "Floating stripes" before the vision is a symptom of Thuja.

The general appearance of the Thuya subject, if he has a characteristic picture, is that of a waxy, shiny face, it looks as if he had been smeared over with grease; and is often transparent, he is a sickly looking individual, looks as if entering upon some cachexia.
The perspiration is peculiar, it is sweetish honey, sometimes like garlic, strong and pungent.
A pungent odor emanates from the genitals, sweetish honey-like like odor to the sweat from the genitalia, he smells his genitals.
The odor is also like burnt horn, burnt feathers or burnt sponge. These peculiar strong odors are particularly present when there are fig warts upon the genitals such as Thuja cures.
The skin looks unhealthy everywhere about the body and there is a copious sweat on first going to sleep, like Arsenicum Album Arsenic If you had only the waxiness such as Arsenicum Album Arsenic andThuja produce, you might prescribe Arsenicum Album Arsenic. Arsenicum Album Arsenic isoften the acute and Thuja the chronic. You remember that Arsenicum Album Arsenic isusually a chronic remedy.
Asthma A peculiar asthmatic condition is found in sycosis and Arsenicum Album Arsenic appears to be indicated for the symptoms, but it only relieves, it does not control the predisposition, it acts like Aconite Aconite in acute diseases and only ameliorates for a moment. Asthmatic and many other sycotic conditions seem to call for Arsenicum Album Arsenic, but it will do nothing but palliate, the constitutionality is not reached by Arsenicum Album Arsenic, its fundamental symptoms are not similar.
Warts The tendency of the Thuja patient is to throw out wart-like excrescences which are soft and pulpy and very sensitive, they burn, itch and bleed easily when rubbed the clothing. Horny excrescences that form on the hands and split open form upon a pedicle and crack around the base.
Cauliflower excrescences upon the cervix uteri, about the anus (like Nitric Acid Nitricum acidum), about the labia majora and mucous membranes generally.
Horny excrescences, more upon the skin. Warts of a brownish color, especially if upon the abdomen the body; great brown spots, like liver spots, form upon the abdomen.
Zona around the chest, herpetic eruptions everywhere, here and there, like Sepia Sepia, herpes labialis and preputialis. Zona is a herpetic formation, great vesicular patches come out upon the body called "shingles", here we should compare Thuja, Rhus Tox Rhus, Graphites Graph, Causticum Kali hydr., and Mezereum Mezereum.
This condition is attended with a great amount of suffering and neuralgic pains. In cases that are sycotic, Thuya is especially a grand remedy.
You will have a class of cases where the warts have been caused to disappear by Mercurius Dulcis calomel, which makes them shrivel up and off, such is the old school treatment. Sometimes a patient comes to you with erratic symptoms and you may study for hours over these symptoms, and see very little order in them, you will realize that the leading features have been left out and that something is lacking.
Some one has applied Nitric acid, Mercurius Dulcis calomel or something else, and driven these fig warts away. These condylomata could not come without having some constitutional basis, these warts have a cause, and that cause seems to be less able to make the patient sick if he has the warts, he feels better when he has the warts. Strange to say.
Thuja leads all medicines for symptoms coming from suppressed fig-warts.
Thuja is pre-eminently a strong medicine when you have a trace of animal poisoning in the history, as Bothrops Lanceolatus snake bite, small-pox and vaccination.
There are probably several varieties of urethral discharges, there is one that is sycotic, and when that has been suppressed, it produced a miasm with soreness in the bottom the feet and in the knees and particularly through the back and loins and sciatic nerves, in the knees and ankle joints.
Sometimes it affects the upper extremities, but particularly the lower. Most violent aggravation when keeping still, like Rhus Tox Rhus, great aching that increases so long as he keeps still, he is very often compelled to keep the bed, and then he constantly moves and turns. An antisycotic must be selected.
Thuja enters into this particular sphere and takes hold of this particular case where sycosis is at the bottom. Sometimes when the discharge has been suppressed, orchitis comes on and then Pulsatilla Pulsatilla will be the remedy, and very seldom Thuja
Thuja affects the left testicle with intense squeezing pain, but most generally you will find Pulsatilla Pulsatilla the remedy.
As we continue to study Thuja, we see that it has a profound action upon the glands, stitching, tearing pains in the glands, the pains are as if the gland were being torn to pieces. That may be true of glands in general, but one particular gland, the ovary, is more affected than any other and especially the left.
Women This is so true, that if you meet a violent pain in the left ovary, coming on at the time of menstruation and continuing during the flow and extending down the thighs, but may be in every direction, it increases as the flow comes on, stinging, tearing, burning, bursting pains, as if the parts were being torn out, make her cry aloud, she goes into a hysterical state. This a very strong Thuja group. It has the opposite of Zincum Metallicum Zinc., and Lachesis Lachesis, for in these, relief comes with the flow.
Many women suffer from grumbling pains in the ovaries all the time, they have a sense of the organ, which they should not feel.
pain from taking cold or in change of weather.
the increase of the pain in the left ovary is the first sign.
sometimes the pain is so severe that the right one suffers apparently, from sympathy. Where the ovaries have been affected for some time there will be mental symptoms, a most violent irritability, jealous, quarrelsomeness, ugliness.
This irritability is likely to been shown towards individuals about the house, toward the husband and the mother.
she is yet able to control herself among strangers and the doctor may not be able to find out about it, because she has in her nature a disposition to cheat.
she wants to be alone and takes upon herself fixed ideas.
that she is pregnant, or that an animal is in her bowels, she is followed, or that someone is walking beside her, thinks that soul and body are separated.
Now, these are fixed ideas, and there is no use trying to reason them out of her. It seems to her that she is very delicate, that she is made of glass and that she will break. The idea is that she will break, and not that she is transparent.
Associated with this conditions, we have violent, intense, tearing headaches, tearing in the eye, ameliorated by heat. The eye-ball pains are better from heat and the rest are better in the cool open air.
Pain localized in small spots. A nail driven in the head, side of head and forehead, like Ignatia Ignatia and Anacardium Occidentale Anacardium. These pains are intensified into tearing pains, and affect the eye-ball, making it so sore that it can hardly be touched.
worse from heat and worse from lying down.
worse in a warm room and better in the open air.
Rheumatic head symptoms are worse in damp air. They are worse from sour things and also from stimulating and exciting things.
Crude drugs do not impress the vital force, so lastingly, but an individual who is thoroughly sensitive and properly sensitive, as sensitive of contagion, then if you undertake to prove by giving it night and morning, you will rivet upon him a life-long miasm.
If you have given a medicine, wait for the symptoms to come and go in the natural manner. To a great extent t, this is the tendency with sycosis, the tendency is rather outward.
We see in the proving of a drug what we see in disease. When a gonorrhoea is contracted, it goes through the prodromal period and then comes the disease, which, if let alone, has in its nature a tendency to eradicate itself from the economy, and then the patients do not suffer from lasting conditions.
In the old school, they always suppress the discharge, and there are those in the new school who do little better.
The taking of more of the drug to prove it does not do so much harm, provided the one who is directing the proving realizes when the symptoms begin to rise, and then stops the drug.
Now if we go on with the proving by repeating the doses after the symptoms come on, we force the drug into the economy when he is already poisoned, and by this means we get a confusion in the symptoms, the drug disease engrafted upon that individual for life.
Many of the provings of Thuja give us that kind of confusion, so that we see only now and then symptoms cropping out that are striking.
in fact, the great bulk of the Thuja provings has been wasted, because there is so much confusion in the great number of symptoms, while the earlier provings brought out many of the characteristics, the Vienna provings, to a great extent, confused the image of Thuja.
So that, by clinical experience only, we have been able to draw out the finer features of Thuja It requires more than a school boy to do that. The new provings must be carried on in a different manner.
Catarrhal conditions Thuja has some striking bowel symptoms; gushing, watery morning diarrhoea, like water coming out of a bunghole.
There is also a general catarrhal condition running through the body.
catarrh of the nose, ears and chest. In the catarrh of the chest it produces an intense hacking cough, with expectoration in the morning of greenish mucus, sometimes a copious expectoration. It is often suited to old cases of pneumonia, in such individuals as have suppressed gonorrhoea, fig-wart gonorrhoea.
The kidneys and urinary symptoms are also striking.
congestion and inflammation of the kidneys, sharp pain in the kidneys.
burning urine. inflammation of the bladder and urethra that is not gonorrhoeal.
pus from the bladder. paralysis of the bladder, must wait a long time for the urine to start.
In the urethral disease of sycotic character, Thuja leads all other remedies. In the non-sycotic variety, Cannabis sativa N/A issufficient, but those cases that have proved to the sycotic Cann N/A . sat left uncured, it ameliorated the burning during and after urination and the thick yellowish green discharge, but some other remedy had always to follow, when they were shown to be sycotic. It is not so with Thuja, because it is capable of finishing the case.
In the most violent cases, with bloody urine, extreme salacity, great torment, bloody, watery discharge from the urethra and bladder, no rest day or night, Cantharis Cantharis comes in, it is capable of finishing the case in a few days. Such a patient must be in excellent health, which is not generally the case. They are drinking men and smokers.
tobacco is one of the most troublesome things you will run across, many cases will not recover promptly if they are tobacco users and great smokers, wine drinkers or convivial men, they run around a good deal mc and are high livers and with such you have a slow case on hand.
With the system so broken down front high living, you may not get a decided curative action until you have forced him to abandon his way of living. Put him on light diet, diminish his smoking, get rid entirely of the drinking, and put him on a perfectly bland living.
This is the first thing. If he is a man of family we have to contend with great mental distress, and not less so if a woman. So it may well be said, that usually the sycotic miasm is a troublesome one to begin with and one that will bother the young physician.
You cannot substitute the right method for a wrong one, which will make him a cripple for life.
The suppression of the disease, as usually tried, cannot be thought of by the sincere and earnest homeopath.
If he wants it checked suddenly, let him go somewhere else, but warn him what will take place, and he will have untold disease and suffering.
Hahnemann's chief anti-sycotic.
Proliferations or pathological vegetations condylomata, polypi, warts, sycotic excrescences, etc.
Bad effects following vaccination; never well since.
Especially suited to the treatment of ailments following suppressed gonorrhoea.
Urethritis in sycotic patients, which Cannabis sat. does not relieve; stream split, cutting after urination; discharge thick.
Sweat only on uncovered parts.
Modalities. worse cold, damp air (hydrogenoid); after vaccination excessive tea drinking, extension of limbs; better drawing up limbs.
Whatever may be said against his theories along this line, certain it is that these three remedies do correct certain states of the system which seem to obstruct the curative action of other seemingly well-indicated remedies.
Thuja, for instance, cures or so changes the existing conditions that other remedies cure which could not do so before Thuja was given. Many diseases of various forms come under this rule. Whenever warts, condylomata, fig-warts etc., which come in consequence of gonorrhoeal affections, especially suppressed, gonorrhoea, are found in any case we think of Thuja. For instance, a case of enuresis had resisted many seemingly indicated remedies, until the hands were discovered to be covered with warts, when a few drops of Thuja cured. Of course, the curative power of Thuja is not confined to sycosis, but can, like other remedies, cure when symptoms indicate it where no sycotic element in the case is apparent. Nevertheless, its chief power is manifested in those cases in which this miasm is unmistakably present. It is astonishing what widely different and varied forms of disease will be so modified by this miasm as to call for anti-sycotic treatment.
As Sulphur Sulphur is not the only anti-psoric, or Merc Viv Mercury the only anti-syphilitic, so Thuja is not the only anti-sycotic; for Nitric acid, Staphysagria Staphisagria, Sabina Sabina, Cinnabaris (Maercurius Sulphuratus Ruber) Cinnabaris and other remedies are sometimes called for, either before or after Thuja, or even when Thuja is not at all the remedy. But on the whole, Thuja, perhaps, as Hahnemann taught, stands at the head of the list. Thuja, Agaricus N/A and Lycopodium Lycopodium have been called over-proven remedies.
