Have you ever used Aloe Socotrina? Yes No
Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Aloe Socotrina in traditional homeopathic usage, not approved by the FDA.
Aloe, much like Aesculus Glabra Aesculus, has a peculiar engorgement of the veins, causing stiffness and fullness throughout the body, but the greatest disturbance is in the veins of the portal system, with great fullness in the region of the liver, and abdominal, rectal and intestinal fullness.
Aloe Socotrina is associated with hemorrhoids. It has abdominal pains that drive him to stool like Nux Vomica Nux vomica, cutting, cramping pains around the navel.
Pains about the navel that shoot down towards the rectum, cutting like knives. Dysenteric and diarrheic troubles. In the attacks of diarrhea there is gushing of thin, yellow, offensive, excoriating feces, which burn like fire, and the anus is sore.
With the Aloe diarrhea the abdomen is distended with gas, causing a feeling of fullness and tightness, and he must go often to stool. Little ones, soon after they begin to walk, will drop all over the carpet, involuntarily, little yellow drops of mucus and faeces. The mother sometimes punishes the little ones, but they cannot help it, they cannot hold the stool, as it is passed involuntarily.
There is a lack of control of the sphincter. This state is not always confined to diarrhea, because sometimes children will go around dropping, involuntarily, little, hard, round marble-like pieces of stool. They do not even know the stool has passed. There is relaxation about the rectum and protrusion of the anus, with bleeding piles. Every mouthful of food hurries him to stool.
drinking water will often hurry him to stool.
Diarrhoea from eating oysters out of season. You might be disposed to give Lycopodium Lycopodium because in the text books poisoning from oysters is laid down under Lycopodium Lyc. I do not know that you would be justified in saying poisoning from oysters in season is Lycopodium Lyc, and out of season is Aloe, but there is a tremous poisoning effect about oysters in the hot weather and in the breeding season that is not found at any other time.
A great many people become nauseated, bloat up, purge tremendously, vomit everything for several days after eating oysters.
Now, when that group of symptoms is present Lycopodium Lycopodium will cure it and will remove the tendency to get sick from oysters.
But if you notice those who get sick have a cholera-like trouble from eating oysters in the hot season, you will find that that is where Aloe is the remedy.
Very little is brought out by which we can distinguish it; only a few things common to many remedies are given.
He wants to be in a cool room; feels hot and flushed; the skin is often hot and dry; he wants to be uncovered at night in bed; burning of the extremities, hot hands and cold feet, or cold bands and hot feet; these alternate. The head feels hot and he wants something cool upon it. This is from the heat of the surface, not fever.
Sensation of heat in the surface, feeling of congestion and fullness of the surface of the body; fullness and engorged veins all over the body. Bleedings are common in Aloe Socotrina, venous oozings from the nose, the bowels, the bladder; bleeding in general. The veins become varicose and the skin is hot.
Much heat in the orifices of the body; the eyes, mouth and throat are hot and burn. There is a sensation of dryness, burning and excoriation about the anus.
There are colicky pains in the bowels from eating and drinking when there is no diarrhea, even when there is a state of constipation.
Aloe Socotrina is useful for the complaints of old beer drinkers. Diarrhea brought on from drinking beer. In persons who have a diarrhea every time they drink beer you will most likely find that Aloe will agree with the symptoms, but sometimes it will be Kali Bich Kali bi, for these two remedies are very similar as to their stomach and bowel symptoms.
