MALE, about thirty years of age, last stage of consumption; troubled with diarrhoea and severe colic. The allopathic doctor has been prescribing astringents and opium. This intoxicates him; he wakes up with his pains increased; his head aches and his mind is dazed from the effects of the opium.
Colocynth. 200, in water removed the colic, but produced no headache, etc. The man died without pain three weeks after. In another case similar to the above, Colocynth. removed the pains and the patient died three days after without experiencing a return of the pains.
