Aethusa cynapium and some rubrics in homeopathy

Contributed by Dr.George
Aethusa is prepared from a very common weed of Europe known as the Fools Parsley.It is a great friend of the children as it helps us to cure many of their ailments.It is a great homeopathic remedy for children.
It has a very important place amongst the remedies we use to check vomiting of milk in infants-vomiting in infants.This intolerance of milk is due to a peculiar gastric irritation frequently met with in children during dentition(image)

Infant vomiting as soon as he/she drinks its milk, up it comes with great gush and in big quantity. If the milk is kept down for a little while it is vomited out in the form of big, thick, greenish curds.(image)

It thus resembles Ant. crud., Nat. mur., Silicea, Sulphur and Valeriana;(image) but the utter prostration, great sleepiness, the peculiar anxious, pain-stricken, drawn look of AEthusa can easily be read even a beginner.
These children are too weak to stand and even when held up, they cannot hold the head because of weakness as in Abrotanum.(image)

After the exertion of vomiting, the child falls into a sort of helpless slumber-sleepiness from which it wakes up, crying with violent hunger, to drink milk and to vomit again.Very often this is complicated with diarrhoea of a light yellow bilious colour(image).(breastfed baby diarrhea)
