Homeopathic Medicines & Treatment for Liver Enlargement, Hypertrophy, Jaundice, Hepatitis,

Gall Stones
#Bryonia. [Bry]
When there are stitching pains in the right hypochondriac region, Bryonia is the first remedy
to be thought of, though for these pains we have other remedies, such as Chelidonium and
Kali carbonicum. Under Bryonia the liver is swollen, congested and inflamed; the pains in the
hypochondriac region are worse from any motion, and better from lying on the right side,
which lessens the motion of the parts when breathing . It is one of the chief remedies for
jaundice brought on by a fit of anger. Chamomilla has this symptom, but the Chamomilla
patient gets hot and sweats, while the Bryonia patient is apt to be chilly, though he appears
hot. There is a bitter in the mouth and the stools are hard and dry, or , if loose, papescent and
profuse and associated with a colic. Berberis has stitching pains from the liver to the
umbilicus. Chelidonium is distinguished by the character of the stools. Bryonia is preeminently a gastro-hepatic remedy, and has pain in right shoulder,giddiness, skin and eyes
slightly yellow. Hughes says it hardly reaches true hepatitis.
#Mercurius. [Merc]
This remedy has much sensitiveness and dull pain in the region of the liver; the patient cannot
lie on the right side. The liver is enlarged. The skin and conjunctiva are jaundiced. The stools
are either clay-colored from absence of bile, or yellowish-green bilious stools passed with a
great deal of tenesmus. There is a yellowish white coated tongue which takes the imprint of
the teeth and there is a foetid breath, loss of appetite and depression of spirits. Leptandra has
aching and soreness in the region of the liver and is especially indicated in the lazy livers of
city men; but is distinguished from Mercurius in the stools, which are pitchlike and black,
accompanied with no tenesmus, but rather a griping and the pains of Leptandra are dull,
aching and burning in the posterior part of the liver. The character of the diarrhoea will also
distinguish Mercurius from Magnesia muriatica, which is useful in the enlarged livers of puny
and rachitic children. Mercurius is the remedy for jaundice arising from abuse of quinine when
fever is present. It is a splendid remedy for "torpid liver." It suits well simple jaundice in
children. Cowperthwaite believes that, as a rule, Mercurius dulcis 2X is the most effective
preparation of mercury in catarrhal jaundice.
#Podophyllum. [Podo]
The principal use of Podophyllum is in liver affections. Primarily, it induces a large flow of bile,
and, secondarily, great torpidity, followed by jaundice. It is indicated in torpid or chronically
congested liver, when diarrhoea is present. The liver is swollen and sensitive, the face and
eyes are yellow and there is a bad taste in the mouth. The tongue is coated white or yellow
and the bile may form gall stones. There is a loose watery diarrhoea, or if constipation be
present the stools are clay-called. It somewhat resembles Mercurius; it is sometimes called
"vegetable mercury." There are a number of drugs having the symptom that the tongue takes
the imprint of the teeth, namely; Mercurius, Podophyllum, Yucca, Stramonium, Rhus and
Arsenic. Another symptom of Podophyllum is that the patient constantly rubs the region of the
liver with the hand. Functional torpor of the portal system and the organs connected there
with indicates Podophyllum. There is constipation, clay-colored stool, jaundice and langour.
#Chelidonium. [Chel]
The liver symptoms of Chelidonium are very prominent. There is soreness and stitching pains

in the region of the liver, but the keynote for this drug in hepatic diseases is a pain under the
angle of the right shoulder blade, which may extend to the chest, stomach, or hypochondrium;
there is swelling of the liver, chilliness, fever, jaundice, yellow coated tongue, bitter taste and a
craving for acids and sour things, such as pickles and vinegar. The stools are profuse, bright
yellow and diarrhoea; they may be clayey in color. It is remedy to be used in simple
biliousness and jaundice, and in hepatic congestion or inflammation the character of the
stools will distinguish Bryonia. Taken altogether, Chelidonium is perhaps our greatest liver
remedy; it causes the liver to secrete thinner and more profuse bile than any remedy; it is a
useful remedy to promote the expulsion of gall stones, and to prevent their formation. It was
Rademacher's great remedy for gall stones, and Cowperthwaite finds it his best remedy. In
simple catarrhal jaundice it is often all sufficient. It affects the left lobe of the liver much less
than does Carduus marianus.
#Digitalis. [Dig]
When jaundice arises from cardiac diseases, Digitalis may be the remedy. There is no
retention of bile, nor obstruction of the ducts, but the jaundice is due to the fact that the liver
does not take from the blood the elements which go to form bile. There is present drowsiness,
bitter taste, soreness , enlargement and bruised feeling in the region of the liver. Sepia has the
yellow sallow face with the yellow saddle across the nose, with stools of bright yellow or ashy
color. Digitalis is useful in the worst forms of jaundice if the pulse be irregular and
intermittent, and if there be rapid prostration of the strength.
#Myrica cerifera. [Myric]
Myrica is an important liver remedy. There is first despondency and also jaundice due to
imperfect formation of bile in the liver, and not to any obstruction, comparing here with
Digitalis. There is dull headache, worse in the morning, the eyes have a dingy, dirty, yellowish
hue, the tongue is coated yellow. The headache is worse in the morning. The patient is weak
and complains of muscular soreness and aching in the limbs; there is slow pulse and dark
urine. It is more superficial in action than Digitalis. The jaundice calling for its use is catarrhal
and this is the form produced by the drug. The throat and nasal organs are filled with an
offensive, tenacious mucus. Dull pain in right side below the ribs no appetite, and desire for
acids; unrefreshing sleep.
#Nux vomica. [Nux Vom]
In liver affections occurring in those who have indulged to excess in alcoholic liquors, highly
seasoned food, quinine, or in those who have abused themselves with purgatives, Nux is the
first remedy to be thought of. The liver is swollen hard and sensitive to the touch and pressure
of clothing is uncomfortable. The first remedy in cirrhosis of the liver. Colic may be present.
Jaundice induced by anger also calls for Nux, also jaundice from abuse of quinine, in the
former cases reminding of Chamomilla , which is an excellent remedy for biliousness of
nervous, irritable women. In the enlarged liver of drunkards, Sulphur, Lachesis, Fluoric acid,
Arsenic and Ammonium muriaticum must also be borne in mind, together with Nux. Juglans
cinerea causes a jaundice like Nux vomica, with stitching pains about the liver and under the
right scapula, bilious stools and occipital headache. Nux must be compared with China,
Pulsatilla in liver affections from over-eating. Iris seems to have a solvent action upon the bile,
it is especially useful in torpid liver and when gastric disorders result from perversion of
hepatic and intestinal functions. Jaundice and constipation. Aloes has biliousness from torpor
of the portal system, distension of the liver, bitter taste and jaundice.

#Lycopodium. [Lyc]
Lycopodium acts powerfully on the liver. The region of the liver is sensitive to the touch, and
there is a feeling of tension in it, a feeling as if a cord were tied about the waist. Cirrhosis. The
pains are dull and aching instead of sharp and lancinating, as under Chelidonium. Fulness in
the stomach after eating a small quantity. There are no real icteric symptoms, but there is a
peculiar sallow complexion. Natrum sulphuricum is useful when the patient has a bad, slimy
taste in the mouth and "thinks he is bilious." There is apt to be weight and aching in the liver;
he can lie on that side, but on turning to the left side the liver seems to pull and draw. Natrum
sulphuricum is the greatest Schuessler specific for liver affections, and clinically it has often
worked well. Dr. Alfred Pope claims that Lycopodium is more useful than any other remedy in
old hepatic congestions. Pain in back and right side from congestion will often yield to the
#Carduus marianus. [Card-m]
This remedy is indicated in jaundice with dull headache, bitter taste, white tongue with red
edges, nausea and vomiting of a greenish fluid. There is an uncomfortable fullness in the
region of the liver, the stools are bilious and the urine golden yellow; there is sensitiveness in
the epigastrium and right hypochondrium. Burnett regards a dark brownish patch over the
lower part of the sternum as a useful hint for Carduus, and in such cases he observes that
both the liver and heart are at fault. The presence of "liver spots seems to be a special
indication for the remedy. Biliousness following la grippe has been cured with Carduus.
Hydrastis has a bitter taste and chronic torpor of the bowels, lack of appetite, coated tongue
and yellow urine. Carduus resembles Aloes. Hale says that it stands between Aloes and
Hamamelis in its action on the veins. It has been used in gall stone colic successfully in the
tincture, and it deserves a trial before resorting to opiates.
#Sulphur. [Sulph]
Sulphur is suitable to chronic affections of the liver; it increases the flow of bile and there is
much pain and soreness in the liver. Sulphur often completes the cure commenced by Nux.
Liver complaints from abuse of mercury will oftentimes call for Sulphur. If the stools are
colorless and if much jaundice or ascites be present Sulphur is contra-indicated. Lachesis,
however, has jaundice, as do all snake poisons, and is useful in the enlarged livers of
drunkards, with tenderness on pressure and throbbing in the right side. Jaundice from sexual
excesses call for Cinchona. Dr. Thayer, of Boston, recommended Cinchona in biliary
calculi,and Dr. Williams,of Augusta, Me., has had success with Ipecac in this connection.
Burnett claims that Hydrastis is the best remedy in gall-stone colic. Berberis vulgaris is also
an important remedy in gall-stone affections.
#Phosphorus. [Phos]
Phosphorus is homoeopathic to fatty degeneration of the liver, with well marked soreness and
jaundice. The stools are grayish white. Cirrhosis and atrophy may also call for Phosphorus.
The jaundice is indicative of organic diseases, and the remedy is a useful one in malignant
diseases of the liver. Digitalis has also been recommended in acute yellow atrophy. Jaundice
accompanying pneumonia may also call for Phosphorus.
#Taraxacum [Tarax]
This is a decided liver remedy, and the indications are a mapped tongue and a bitter taste in

the mouth, chilliness after eating, pain and soreness in the region of the liver and bilious
diarrhoea. Kali bichromicum also has a mapped tongue. Yucca filamentosa has a pain going
from the upper region of the liver to the back and a bad taste in the mouth. The stools are
loose and bilious, accompanied with much flatus. The face is yellow and sallow and the
tongue takes the imprint of the teeth. Another remedy used in bilious troubles is Euonymus; it
has intense heavy, wearing, occipital headache, the stools are deficient in bile, and it is useful
in cardiac disturbance from inaction of the liver. Euonymus 2X is an admirable remedy in
hepatic congestion. Dr. Wm. E. Leonard says: " In the case of torpid livers with tendency to
attacks of biliary colic, it anticipates and prevents the colic." Chionanthus has biliousness,
sick headache, coated tongue, nausea and complete anorexia. It is remedy highly
recommended for biliary calculi. Jaundice and hepatic pain are its indications. It overcomes
catarrh, liquifies the bile, prevents the formation of calculi and promotes the discharge of
those already formed. Sluggish circulation in the liver with the long train of symptoms
resulting therefrom are indications. Ptelea has sharp pains in right hypochondria, distress in
liver and constipation.
