Have you ever used ? Yes No
Ruta Graveolens which has already been mentioned as to its prominent action in the periosteum, especially in injuries and effects therefrom, also, like Arnica Arnica, has a "bruised, lame sensation all over as after a fall; worse in limbs and joints," and also "all parts of the body upon which he lies are painful, as if bruised." Like Rhus Tox Rhus tox., the Ruta patient wants to change position frequently. The pains and lameness of Ruta seem to have a particular liking for the wrists. Here also must Eupat. perf. be remembered.
These pains in the wrists of Ruta are, like Rhus toxicod., worse in cold, wet weather, and better on motion. There is no remedy oftener useful for eye-strain from close study, sewing, etc., than Ruta. The eyes feel weary and ache as if strained, or they burn like balls of fire. Two other remedies must be remembered for eye-strain, viz. Natrum muriaticum and Senega Senega. An understanding of these three remedies may save many cases of asthenopia or weakness of accommodation from the abuse of spectacles. Ruta is also one of our best remedies for prolapsus of the rectum.
Ignatia Ignatia stands closest here. Both are worse on stooping, lifting, or at stool. Muriaticum Acidum Muriatic acid and Podophyllum Peltatum Podophyllum should also be remembered; with the former the prolapsed organ is very sore and sensitive to the least touch, even of the sheet on which he lies, and the rectum comes down even when urinating (Aloe Socotrina Aloe). The prolapse of Podophyllum Peltatum Podophyllum is almost always accompanied by the characteristic diarrhea, but may be the result of strain by lifting, when the uterus may also prolapse. These uses of Ruta make it a very valuable remedy.
