Some remedies have a general action upon the
tendency to bleed and others are more specific for a precise
anatomical localization. In many cases, homeopathy will aid
the patient in recovering a good haemostatic balance. The treatment’s
strategy depends on the correct clinical, biological or surgical
diagnosis, as well as a precise homoeopathic diagnosis.
Haemorrhagic diathesis; fluid blood and degeneration of red
blood-corpuscles; Nosebleed: when washing the face and hands
in the morning, from left nostril; after eating.
Conjunctival or retinal haemorrhage, with extravasation, from
injuries or cough.
It produces a relaxation of the entire capillary system which,
of course, favours haemorrhage. It is therefore useful in epistaxis
and uterine haemorrhages. Farrington gives as characteristic
that the flow occurs chiefly or only at night or early in the
Haemorrhage from any mucous outlet; epistaxis in daily attacks,
for weeks, worse from exertion; face pale before as well as
after a haemorrhage; continuous passive haemorrhages; the skin
is cold and bluish, pulse rapid and weak; the patient wants
to be fanned.
Disposition to haemorrhage from every orifice of the body, with
ringing in ears, fainting, loss of sight, general coldness.
Farrington says one can hardly do without Cinchona in haemorrhages.
Haemorrhage from any part, blood black, viscid, clotted, forming
into long black strings hanging from the bleeding surface.
Haemorrhagic diathesis; blood flows from eyes, ears, nose, and
every orifice of the body; bloody sweat; Purpura haemorrhagica;
comes on suddenly from all orifices, skin, nails, gums. Vicarious
menstruation; in debilitated constitutions; prolonged metrorrhagia
- dark, fluid, offensive; profound anaemia.
Erigeron almost specific in all forms of haemorrhage. Exhausting
attacks of haemorrhage at the menopause are often checked by
Erigeron. After miscarriage it is also a great use, here the
haemorrhage is bright red in color.
Haemorrhagic diathesis; small wounds bleed easily and profusely;
blood dark, non-coagulable.
It is adapted to venous haemorrhage from every orifice of the
body; nose, lungs, bowels, uterus, bladder. Venous congestion:

ulcers, varicose, with stinging, pricking pain. Haemorrhage:
profuse, dark, grumous, from ulceration of bowels; uterine,
active or passive; after a fall or rough riding; vicarious menstruation;
no mental anxiety. Nosebleed: flow passive, long-lasting, blood
non-coagulable; profuse >> headache; idiopathic, traumatic,
vicarious, of childhood. Haemoptysis: tickling cough, with taste
of blood or sulphur; venous, without effort or coughing; sometimes
monthly, for years. Profuse discharges, which stimulate a haemorrhage,
and form a drain upon system as severe as loss of blood. Haemorrhoids:
bleeding profusely; with burning, soreness, fullness, heaviness;
as if back would break; urging to stool; bluish color; anus
feels sore and raw; after haemorrhage from piles, prostration
out of all proportion to amount of blood lost. Menses: flow,
dark and profuse; with soreness in abdomen; after a blow on
ovary, or a fall; all suffering < at menstrual period. Uterine
haemorrhage active or passive; from jolting while riding over
rough roads; bearing down pain in back. Dr. Dyce Brown considers
Hamamelis one of the best remedies for uterine haemorrhages
generally and clinical experience has abundantly verified its
use, not only here, but in haemorrhages from any part of the
Haemorrhage diathesis; small wounds bleed freely; flow passive,
in epistaxis, haemoptysis, haematuria; in typhoid, followed
by great prostration; dark, oozing, after the extraction of
Haemorrhages: painless, without fever; bright red, fluid blood;

freely and then ceasing for a time; metrorrhagia, in cancer;
haemoptysis, vicarious, from nose, stomach, anus, urethra, in
Haemorrhagic diathesis; the slightest wound causes bleeding
for weeks; discharge of sanious liquid blood with a strong tendency
to putrescence; tingling in the limbs and great debility, especially
when the weakness is not caused by previous loss of fluids.
Haematuria: blood thoroughly mixed with the urine; sediment,
like coffee-grounds; cloudy, smoky, albuminous; profuse, dark
or black, painless. Congestion and inflammation of viscera;
kidneys, bladder, lungs, intestines, uterus; with haemorrhage,

too long a ride. Flooding, with fainting. Menorrhagia: flow,
profuse, gushing, bright red; at least movement; from displaced
uterus; at the climacteric; every two weeks, dark, clotted.
Haemoptysis: incipient phthisis, with bloody sputa; in advanced
