Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Aesculus in traditional homeopathic usage, not approved by the FDA.


Modalities, etc

Medicines having much trouble with the veins are often disturbed by hot bathing, weakness after a hot bath, weakness in warm weather, aversion to heat and desire for cold.

It is the state of Pulsatilla Pulsatilla The Pulsatilla Pulsatilla veins contract in cold weather, and the shrivelling up makes the patient feel better, but the veins fill and become engorged in the warm air and after a hot bath.

A tepid bath sometimes makes a Pulsatilla Pulsatilla patient feel better, but a Turkish bath is generally distressing. Many of the complaints of Aesculus Glabra Aesculus are of this sort; Aesculus Glabra Aesculus often feels better in cold air.

The symptoms of Aesculus Glabra Aesculus are often brought out, by temperature, especially the little stinging pains. It is characteristic of these superficial pains that they are nearly always ameliorated by heat, while the deeper affections are oftentimes ameliorated from cold.

Now, in Pulsatilla Pulsatilla, the stinging pains of the scalp and those over the body, here and there, are often ameliorated by the local application of heat, while the patient himself wants to, be in the cold.

in the same way Aesculus Glabra Aesculus stinging pains are better from heat, while the patient is often better from cold, although at times he is aggravated from cold, damp weather in rheumatic and venous conditions.

Again, in Secale Cornutum Secale, we see that the little sharp pains that follow the course of the nerves are better from beat, but the patient himself wants to be in the cold air, or to be uncovered, except the spot of pain, which he wants kept warm.

We notice the same thing running through Camphora Camphora.

during the twinges of pain he wants the windows closed and wants hot applications.

but as soon as the pain is over he wants the windows up and desires to be uncovered so that he can breathe. These are general things, things that are to be observed in analyzing symptoms.
