Pharmacological and clinical notes
Burns; rheumatic, arthritic, paralytic disorders; for pains in the muscular and connective tissues with progressive decrease in muscular strength, contracture of tendons.
Natrium diethyloxalaceticum (sodium oxalacetate)
Active factor of the citric acid cycle and of redox systems, dermatosis, weakness of the defensive mechanism.
Acidum alpha-ketoglutaricum (a-ketoglutaric acid)
Active factor of the citric acid cycle and of redox systems, dermatosis, feeling of exhaustion.
Acidum fumaricum (fumaric acid)
Active factor of the citric acid cycle and of redox systems, dermatosis, conditions of debility.
Arsenicum album (white arsenic)
Burning pains, restlessness, hopelessness, exhaustion. Sulfur (sulphur)
Reagent in all chronic diseases, cellular activity is influenced catalytically. Arnica montana (mountain arnica)
Stimulation of healing of wounds, myocardial weakness, neuralgia, myalgia. Pulsatilla pratensis (wind flower)
Migrating disorders, remedy for affections of the mucosa, promotes regressive vicariation.
Embryo suis (embryo)
Stimulation of the body’s own defenses, for cellular diseases in general, arteriosclerosis, muscular dystrophy.
To support the detoxicating functions; increased glandular secretion; eczema and dermatosis, burns.
Included in the pharmaceutical picture of Causticum are caustic and burning pains, a feeling “like raw flesh”, and it is not only indicated for incontinentia urinae and catarrh but also for burns and scalds of all kinds (through hot liquids, the direct effect of fire, etc.) and for radiation injuries. Causticum is indicated especially when there are also conditions of exhaustion. Arnica montana has a pronounced action on the circulation. Arsenicum album improves the most serious exhaustion and depressive disposition,
while Sulphur has a detoxicating effect and Histamine acts upon the toxin level (always high in cases of radiation injury and burns) by the reversal effect. Pulsatilla acts (through the sympathetic nervous system) on the connective tissue function and promotes secretions. The embryonic extract exerts a stimulating action on the depleted defensive forces, while through the catalysts Natrium diethyloxalaceticum, Acidum alpha-ketoglutaricum and Acidum fumaricum, the enzyme system of the citric acid cycle is stimulated.
Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Causticum compositum, therapeutic possibilities result for the treatment of burns and scalds of all types, caused by hot fluids, steam, the direct effects of fire, and radiation injuries of all kinds, including, in particular, radiation sickness and disorders after insertions of radium, telecobalt, radioactive disotopes, especially when, after extensive radiation, the number of white blood-corpuscles declines (leucopenia).
Also for intoxication of other kinds, e.g. in conditions of exhaustion through physical overstrain, frostbite, hypothermia, overwork, Causticum compositum can be administered.
The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the clinical appearance and the stage of the illness. In general, especially in acute conditions, one injection is administered s.c. or i.m. once to twice daily, otherwise (for a series of irradiations and in the treatment of severe burns, possibly in addition to cortisone, etc.), at first possibly daily, later 1-3 times weekly 1 ampoule s.c. or i.m., in special cases also i.v.
The solution of drops is administered in cases of acute burns, 10 drops every 15 minutes for several hours, later hourly to every 2 hours; after the acute symptoms have abated, 10 drops 3 times daily. The same procedure is followed for X-ray, radium and radiation treatment.
