Pharmacological and clinical notes
Veratrum album (white hellebore)
Gastro-enteritis acuta, tendency to collapse and conditions of collapse with cyanotic or pale and cold skin as well as cold sweat, psychosis.
Morning diarrhoea, dysentery, gastro-enteritis, colitis simplex, incontinentia ani. Tormentilla (tormentil)
Gastro-enteritis acuta, possibly with blood in the stools, colitis mucosa et ulcerosa. Rheum (rhubarb)
Diarrhoea in children and infants, with acid stools; gastro-enteritis with colic in adults. Based on the individual homoeopathic constituents of Veratrum-Homaccord, therapeutical possibilities result for the treatment of dysentery, diarrhoea of all kinds,
e.g. in gastro-enteritis, nutritional disorders, intestinal spasms and tenesmus, incontinentia sphincteris ani, dyspepsia in infants and small children (in addition to Gastricumeel, Diarrheel S and Nux vomica-Homaccord).
Diverticulitis and colitis mucosa (in addition to Nux vomica-Homaccord, Galium-Heel, Psorinoheel and possibly Mercurius-Heel S). Conditions of collapse with cold sweat (in addition to Aurumheel N drops, Cardiacum-Heel, Galium-Heel; for heart attacks also Glonoin-Homaccord, etc.).
For sural spasms resulting from local circulatory disturbances or after injuries (e.g. rupture of muscles) Veratrum-Homaccord is effective in addition to Cruroheel S and possibly Hamamelis-Homaccord as well as Spascupreel.
Veratrum-Homaccord has also proved effective in mental changes, e.g. when there is a tendency to tear everything up or to crush any objects, also in delirium tremens (i.v. with Nux vomica-Homaccord). As intensified defecation is to be regarded as the release of homotoxins, Veratrum-Homaccord, in general in diarrhoea, should be used only when there has been considerable excretion. In cases of poisoning, Diarrheel S must be administered as well in every instance (adsorption of the toxins).
The dosage is adjusted according to the disease, the symptoms and the stage of the illness: for acute disorders, 10 drops every 15 minutes, otherwise 10 drops 3 4 times
