Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Sanguinaria Canadensis in traditional homeopathic usage, not approved by the FDA.
Have you ever used Sanguinaria Canadensis? Yes No
Pain beginning in occiput; spreads over the head and settles over the right eye, with nausea and vomiting. Sensitive to noise and light.
Loose cough with badly smelling sputa; the breath and sputa smell badly to the patient himself.
Pain in right arm and shoulder; worse at night in bed; cannot raise the arm. Also pain in places where the bones are the least covered.
Heat and tension behind sternum. Cough day and night with great emaciation.
Burning and pressing in breast, followed by heat through abdomen and diarrhoea. Acts intensely on right lung and chest.
Sick headache. Pain commences in the back of the head, rises and spreads over the head, and settles down over the right eye (left eye, Spigelia Anthelmia Spigelia), with nausea and vomiting; patient wants to be in a dark room and perfectly quiet. I have made some fine cures in long-standing cases of habitual sick headaches of this kind with Sanguinaria Canadensis. It will probably cure, or greatly relieve, the ordinary American sick headache as often as any other remedy. I use the 200th. Loose cough, with badly smelling sputa.
