Cheerful and lively: a case of Sabadilla
A five-year-old girl with very itchy eczema
in the cubital region was brought to me by her mother. She is a very pretty, nicely
chubby girl with blond hair and brown eyes. She sits on her mother’s lap, constantly smiling and giggling. Her
mother admonishes her to behave because she is shy and embarrassed during the
examination, which is not usual for her. Typical for her, however, is this
cheerful, lively, chuckling behavior; she is either laughing or crying, nothing
She often argues with her brother,
who is three and a half years older. If he refuses to give her something,
however, she does not have tantrums, as
he did when he was younger.
Her eczema started when she was 18 months old. She was sitting in the hallway when a neighbor began to drill into the wall. She was so scared of this noise that she started crying very loudly, and shaking over her whole body. For the next seven days, she had bad constipation with very hard stools, tough as a stone, which had to be manually removed from her rectum. Since that time, she feared sitting on the toilet. A month after this incident, the eczema occurred. Apart from the eczema, she now has conjunctivitis in her left eye.
Past history: chickenpox, 3 x otitis media, ruptured eardrum in the right ear, with beige-green pus. She has had fevers with high temperature twice, about 40° C. She uncovers herself during sleep.
The child is similar to her mother, so I also ask about her. Like her daughter, she is cheerful and enjoys dancing. She says that her father died when she was fourteen. Four years ago, she started to have symptoms of allergy in her eyes; she has a sensation of dryness when moving them, as if the surface of her eye would be wrinkling and crinkling, but only up to the pupil. She has swelling of the lower eyelids, and her eyes and the region around them itch, then she has pain under her eyes. Sometimes, she sneezes. The condition improves by putting spoons chilled in the freezer on her eyes.
She had smallpox four years ago, at
the same time as her daughter.
I noted the obvious similarity between mother
and daughter. The most characteristic symptoms were the excessive gaiety of the
girl and her enormous desire for honey. I used the following rubrics:
Botanical names of Sabadilla remedy
are Schoenocaulon officinale, Melanthium sabadilla, Veratrum officinale. This
plant belongs in APG3 classification to the family Melanthiaceae (as well as Veratrum
album), order Liliales. According to the latest findings of Jan Scholten,
Melanthiaceae family belongs to a subphase 5 of a phase 6 (Liliales) of class
Monocots. Subphase or phase 5 brings the nitrogen quality of enjoyment of life,
vitality, vibrancy, vigour and enthusiasm. It is perhaps the reason why both
mother and daughter had such a desire for laughing, singing, and dancing. I believe
that nothing is completely random. Shrinking can mean the opposite of the expansion
that nitrogen desires.
July 28th: her mother told me that a week after taking the remedy, the eczema got worse, so she stopped administering the remedy. After three more days, the eruptions and itching subsided and since that time they have not reappeared. Mother also reported that her daughter had much less desire for honey. Meanwhile, fifteen years have passed, and the eczema has not returned.
