Carbo Animalis (Animal Charcoal)

Homeopathic remedy for

Aging patients, when they become feeble, muscle tone is lacking and there is poor circulation. "Diseases of the elderly with marked venous excess. Complaints in broken down, anemic individuals with glandular infiltrations and much hardness and induration." "Circulation feeble, stagnated and vital heat sinking to a minimum. Deficient reaction in old animals".

This remedy is indicated so frequently in cases of advanced pathology that its value in functional disorders is often over- looked. All disease begins in the functional plane and, unless checked, progresses toward structural change and incurability.

Carbo animalis can be truly life saving and health restoring in the early stages of chronic disease. In terminal conditions we can only hope to palliate. Most animals end up in treatment somewhere between these two extremes.

Still stressing pathology, "Carbo animalis is frequently the remedy in chronic ulcers and fistulous openings where the walls tend to become hard and the discharge foul. Swollen, painful, indurated glands in neck, armpit, groin and mammary. This remedy has been one of the most suitable for old, stubborn, cancerous afflictions".

The Carbo animalis picture seems to read like a case for the undertaker, but Carbo an. has a broad field in cases where there is no induration (hardness), infiltration, ulceration or observable pathology. Like any other remedy it may become indicated at any time of life.

This homeopathic medicine has some very characteristic and reliable symptoms. The first is exhaustion, weakness, frailness and general aggravation even from the minutest cause or the slightest depletion. A mild case of diarrhea appears to rob the patients vitality completely. Even the slightest thing can be described as terribly weakening.

Carbo animalis patients become slaves to their own routine. Any change may upset them, especially if it involves any extra effort, whether mental, physical, respiratory or digestive, whether conscious or unconscious. A change of altitude, climate or seasons may aggravate. Any abrupt change in the daily routine may disturb the digestion or otherwise aggravate condition.

Sluggishness and lethargy are two words that apply to the Carbo-an patient. He lacks the energy and the ambition to undertake activity of any kind. It is hard to get them going and they resent being prodded. After a meal there is a feeling of congestion to the head and neck with drowsiness and loss of interest. Only after the process of digestion is well advanced does the patient resume even the lightest activity. Commonly associated with the above symptoms is an uncomfortable sensation of abdominal distension.
