KREOSOTUM DESCRIPTION & USE INDICATIONS
Kreosotum - When this remedy is indicated, the woman may salivate so much that she constantly swallows it, becoming nauseous. She may also vomit up food that looks undigested, several hours after eating.
Kreosotum, or creosote, is made from distilled beechwood tar. It has been used for centuries as a wood preservative and was first used for medical purposes in the 1800s. It is currently used to treat a wide range of conditions, such as bed-wetting, bleeding between menstrual cycles, ailments affecting the mucus membranes, and nausea due to pregnancy. To make a solution of kreosotum, creosote is typically dissolved in alcohol and distilled water. Next, it is strained through a filter until the liquid is extracted, making a mother tincture. One drop of the mother tincture can be diluted further in a mixture of alcohol and distilled water. This new, diluted mixture is then vigorously shaken. It can be diluted further, if necessary, or added to tablets, granules, or powder, and stored.
People who practice homeopathic medicine claim that kreosotum works best on certain types of patients. For example, they claim that people who are consistently in a temperamental state are ideal for the drug. It is also believed to work well on people who are forgetful, restless at night, and irritable. Other characteristics that are common among patients who use kreosotum include a penchant to live in the past and experience repeated dreams that are sexual in nature.
It is often used to treat candidiasis as well. Candidiasis is a fungal infection that usually affects the vagina. Kreosotum is usually recommended for people who have an offensive, foul-smelling discharge coming from the vaginal area. The odor is usually accompanied with soreness and burning, especially when urinating. It can also be used to treat discharge and bleeding from the cervix and uterus. Some homeopathic medicine practitioners recommend kreosotum if a woman has bleeding on the days between her menstrual cycles. It is sometimes recommended for women who have heavy menstrual cycles or an odiferous flow that is accompanied by a burning sensation.
There are also claims that it can be used to treat nausea due to pregnancy.
Bed-wetting, or nocturnal enuresis, is a common problem, especially in young children. By the time many children are three years old, they have the ability to control their bladders. Many children still have problems controlling their bladder at night, however, even when they are six or seven years old. Kreosotum is often recommended to help a child who wets the bed when in a deep sleep. Usually a practitioner will recommend the child ingests the mixture before bed for two weeks in the hopes of having a dry bed in the morning.
Although side effects are rare, most people should consult a professional before using kreosotum. A professional opinion is especially important for children, women who are pregnant, and women who are breastfeeding. If any concerns arise, it is best to stop using the drug.
