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




As much of pure Magnesia Carbonica Carbonate of Magnesia as will dissolve in pure Muriaticum Acidum Muriatic acid at 800 Reaumur is dissolved in the acid. The Muriatic acid is prepared by distillation from common salt and Acid Phos Phosphoric acid of equal weight, which has first been melted and then allowed to acquire again from exposure to the air an oily consistency. The solution of muriate of magnesia is then filtered and dried at the same temperature, so that this salt, which readily deliquesces, may be preserved in a well-stoppered vial.

I cannot at present offer much information concerning this medicine, but chronic patients may expect from it much benefit, when we consider the great use which has been afforded in chronic (psoric) ailments by sea-baths, merely by the action of this salt on the nerves of the skin.

for in the North Sea, at least, one pound of sea-water contains almost an ounce of this salt. Some part of the use of sea-baths may, however, we grant, be ascribed to the journey to these places, the effects of removal from business, which is often burdensome, and the effect of the dashing of the waves against the bathers.

But since we can seldom expect the full cure of developed psora from any one antipsoric remedy, so these baths, even if used in a proper way, could only diminish so much of this multiform malady as could be expected from this salt in such disease, and whatever is not thus exterminated has to await the help of other antipsoric remedies.

From my experience I cannot do otherwise than value this medicine highly as an antipsoric remedy and to exhort to further provings of its peculiar symptoms.

It has done good service, especially in the following ailments

Daily headache. throbbing in the ear.

tensive pressure in the head.

eruption in the face. pressive pain in the liver, even when walking and when it is touched, worst when lying on the right side.

constant severe inflation of the abdomen, with constipation.

crawling shooting in the abdominal muscles.

inveterate, painful hardness of the right side of the abdomen.

tape-worm troubles. lumpy, difficult, retarded.

chronic disposition to diarrhoea.

, which even extend to the thighs, and cause discharges of leucorrhoea.

troublesome dryness of the nose.

the arms go to sleep in the morning on awaking.

paralytic drawing in the arms and knees.

pressive pain in the knees.

foot-sweat. readiness to take cold.

weakness of the body, seeming to proceed from the stomach.

Fanciful delusion As if while she was reading in a book, another person was reading after her, and compelled her to read more quickly, with humming and buzzing around her.

when she raised her head up she seemed to see great clouds and rocks above her, which afterwards disappeared again.

then anguish, apprehensiveness and restlessness, so that she could not contain herself.

by continuing to look around her all these things disappeared, but recurred twice more on renewing her reading.;.

Pain in the stomach, as if it was being cut up, it wakes her at 1 A.M., the pain, when the body is stretched, passes over the whole abdomen and groin, with heat in the head, arising in the throat as of a ball, with interception of the breath even to suffocation, and tossing in the bed and on the floor for two hours.

finally the whole is alleviated by eructation.

during the pains she had to double up, and could bear no covering.;.

Sudden heaviness of the chest, at dinner, with interception of the breath, nausea, collection of water in the mouth, heat of the face, spasmodic pressure upward below the tongue, with inclination to eructation.

she had to open her dress and go out into the open air.

the paroxysm lasted for a quarter of an hour and ended in a shaking chill (6th d.).;.
