Carcinosin 200 for Trigeminal Neuralgia


For the last month I have suffered in a miserable crisis of trigeminal neuralgia, running through remedies at record speed and nothing held. I eventually realized such a chronic pernicious condition required something like carcinosin or medorrhinum. I researched carcinosin and found that it had been used successfully for this condition in the past, so I took a dose of 200c. After about 10 minutes while lying down, I had the most extraordinary reaction to the remedy. Instead of constant long spasms of piercing and drawing pain, I felt dozens and dozens of little sharp pinpricks all over the left and right sides of my jaw, almost felt hypnotized, for about 15 very intense minutes; but the aggravation really took place in my lower legs, which have been troubling by way of peripheral neuropathy and plantar fasciitis in the feet. There was a rapid swirling heat that encompassed both legs for about 2 hours, even after the jaw aggravation had ceased. Three days later, sinuses are still sensitive in face but all neuralgia has disappeared. I wonder when I should take another dose; I will probably wait at least 6 weeks and then re-evaluate.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I would get supervision from an experienced homeopath.

You may not need this again, and in 6 weeks the symptom picture could call for another remedy.
People who have taken this too often can stimulate
the disease for which it is named.

do you have absolute proof that carcinosin abuse causes the disease it is derived from? I am indeed supervised by a homeopath with 25 years in the field, and I have heard that too much of any remedy makes the original symptoms worse. But I have never read substantial proof, just claims. Thank you for your reply.

Yes. In Tinus Smits books, he has passed now
from cncr-but was a famous homeopath who
developed Cease therapy for autism etc.

He used that remedy quite often, when indicated homeopathically-
and also for his own theories on homeopathic
meds for evolution of the human spirit. ( not normal
homeopathic prescribing) He mentioned on a
properly indicated case that he found if given too
high it could stimulate the disease ( he was talking
200c and what happened to one of his patients. This was
a patient who had severe neglect and abuse and he said
he thought the 200c was too high for her and that is
why she shortly thereafter developed the disease) I don't know
if he mentioned how many doses she had- but- he was not
one to frequently dose people.

And on his own and for others that followed his
human spirit protocol, he was taking higher and
higher doses of this and suddenly he himself had
the disease and passed shortly thereafter. Kadwa
on here, a physician and over a decade of contributing
help, says not more than once every 6 months on this.

Thank you for that good information. I'll probably move on to Hyos 200 then if the symptoms reappear. I've run through all the big Type 3 remedies for TN and they don't hold. Hyos has severe teeth pain along with lockjaw, which happens when the muscles go into spasm. Hyos also has agonizing pains, and severe migraines. I had it in my kit and never thought about it til I read up on it. This is a severe chronic condition so the big poisons seem to work the best.

If things come back, I would suggest
you come back on here and ask for
Evocationer ( 20 years) or Rishimba ( homeopathic dr and many years)

It is almost impossible on chronic ailments to look at your totality of symptoms and be a neutral observer.

Good luck,

I'll certainly do that!

Modalities suddenly changed late in day, piercing left-sided headache with rigidity in neck, spreading to behind ear. Pulsatilla 200c cured the case. The End.

Two years have passed since I wrote about my condition. It also turned out to be a food sensitivity issue, primarily. I gradually took myself off of every sort of animal protein, slowly moving toward total vegan, as I had intermmittent bouts with the TN again, again cured by 200c and 1M Pulsatilla, but did food isolation for a year and decided total vegan was the only way to stay balanced. For the last four months, no trace of TN, TMJ or migraines after going vegan.

And cheese was especially volatile in provoking attacks, above all other proteins, followed by poultry and dark meats as well as eggs.

Good that you found the root cause.Diet.

Thanks for updating -glad to know you are free of this.

Just wondering, have you ever had a liver panel done to see enzyme status and bilirubin status?

I ask that as it seems there is a lot of food you have to avoid.
simone717 7 years ago
Food/diet is the most underrated aspect of health we ignore/take for granted.

But it is the most important factor in ayurveda.

Pain is usually vata in nature which means constipation and sensitive to cold and dry.

Did you suffer from any of this?

Your digestion must also have improved with these diet changes.
