Homeopathic Remedy Borax Veneta (Bor)
-Mucus membrane-Aphthous inflammation
-Skin-Unhealthy, least injury suppurates.
-Female organs-stimulates menstruation.
-Skin-Locally, powerful antiseptic and disinfectant.
This agent in large dose tends to retard the assimilation of proteids and fatty foods, increasing the weight of the stools and their contents of nitrogen and fat; very large doses produce diarrhoea and an increased secretion of mucus and an aphthous condition of the mucous surfaces in general which bleed easily. The patient presents a pale, flabby, sickly appearance, is sensitive to noises and to downward motion.
The great indication for this remedy is an APHTHOUS CONDITION of the mucous membranes in general. this is often noticeable in the mouth when it appears suddenly and covers the tongue, mouth and inside of the cheeks with a WHITE FUNGOUS – LIKE GROWTH. There is great heat and dryness of the parts. The child cries with pain an vexation and lets go of the nipple, or the refuses to nurse, accompanying this condition of the mouth there is often a diarrhoea, the stools are of a light yellow color, are watery and contain much mucus and are extremely excoriating, the child is faint and debilitated.
It should be remembered in this type of patients when there IS PAINFUL URINATION, when there is URGING TO URINATE, which may be INEFFECTUAL, or there is smarting in the urethra after urinating. The urine gives a sensation of heat, and has a pungent odor and in the case of children small red particles are left on the diaper. Inspection often shows a red aphthous condition of the mucous membrane.
It is of service in APHTHOUS and CATARRHAL CONDITIONS of the vagina, when the leucorrhoeal discharge has the appearance of the white of an egg. The parts are sensitive to the touch and the patient complains of heat in the parts. The menses are irregular, profuse and are attended with griping pain in the abdomen. It has relieved sterility when there was an aphthous abrasion of the vagina and os uteri with an acrid leucorrhoea an membranous dysmenorrhoea.
In cases of PRURITUS PUDENDI and ECZEMA of the VULVA it should be employed both locally and internally.
INTOLERANCE TO DOWNWARD MOTION is characteristic and is noticed when descending in an elevator, while in a rocking chair, when the nurse puts the child down it awakens, worse when the ship rolls down.
It has been found serviceable when the patient is SENSITIVE to SUDDEN NOISES as from a shot or blast, sporting dogs have been cured of shot shyness by its use.
Dissolving a small piece of borax in the mouth has relieved hoarseness.
