Discussion on the remedy solely as the rubrics standing with Carcinosinum being the only remedy. Most of similar modalities, desires, aversions and biphasic character discussed. Also possible indications from family or personal history described. The viewpoint from unusual angle emphasized.

Carcinosinum, sole remedy, rubrics, biphasic character, hereditary, sequelae, modalities, desires, aversions

The new century has put mankind under different challenges like common man’s poor economy, food adulteration, radiation damage and mental stress from noise, traffic or pollution etc. The numerous factors create many new symptoms/pathogenesis due to chemical wizardry in healthy humans. Of course we have very competent arsenal of homeopathic materia medica. But what can be the answer when we look around to overcome the new generation’s queer symptomatology covering all the miasms and still stand out unique; which is of course, marvelous achievement of great Dr Burnett, Carcinosinum.

Carcinosinum could prove miracle, if its choice is made intelligently taking family history and personal history as a base.

The hereditary indications are suicidal disposition, delirium tremens, measles, cancer esp. of mamma in mother side, TB, whooping cough, diabetes, anemia, esp. pernicious type, liver cirrhosis, gastric ulcer and pyloric stenosis.

Personal history may be sequelae of any long standing fever, measles, injuries, esp. head injury, whooping cough, cancer surgery, abuse, esp. children abuse, disappointed love esp. with migraine, insomnia or anorexia also same from long standing grief,  fever after vaccination or mononucleosis.

Also ailments of business, masturbation, in nurslings, during ovulation, from parasites, transfusion, too early responsibility,sensual impressions and shock.

As early as 1980, great Dr. Schmidt. had marked the rubric as highest grade; ‘Offended easily, takes everything in bad part’ in Barthel Klunker Synthetic repertory published by Haug Verlag Heidelberg.

To my experience the most distinct indication has been desire which aggravates the ailment by any of the foods.

The queerest aspect is presence of biphasic character; desire and aversion or aggravation and amelioration in the same rubric.
