Known as “Bone-set” for its prompt relief of limb and muscle pain associated with febrile diseases like malaria and influenza. Eup-per. primarily affects the gastro-hepatic organs and bronchial mucous membrane. It is beneficial in miasmatic areas such as rivers and marshes, and in conditions with significant bone pain. It aids those with chronic bilious intermittents and worn-out constitutions due to inebriety, addressing sluggish organs and functions, severe general bone pains, and soreness with marked periodicity (Ars., Chin., Cedr.).

Head: Throbbing pain with a sensation of a lead cap pressing on the skull. Vertigo with a sensation of falling to the left. Vomiting of bile, pain at the top and back of the head, and soreness of the eyeballs. Periodic headaches every third and seventh day. Occipital pain after lying down with a sense of weight.

Mouth: Cracks at the corners, yellow-coated tongue, and thirst.

Stomach: Yellow tongue, bitter taste, sore hepatic region (jaundice), great thirst, vomiting, and purging of bile in large quantities, vomiting preceded by thirst, hiccough (Sul-ac., Hydr-ac.), and avoidance of tight clothing.

Rectum: Frequent green, watery stools, cramps, and constipation with a sore liver.

Respiratory: Coryza with sneezing, hoarseness, cough with chest soreness requiring support, influenza with muscle and bone soreness, chronic loose cough with chest soreness worse at night, and cough relieved by getting on hands and knees.

Extremities: Aching back pain, aching bones in the extremities with flesh soreness, aching in arms and wrists, swelling of the left great toe, gouty soreness, and inflamed joint nodosities with headache, dropsical swelling (arthritis).

Fever: Perspiration relieves all symptoms except headache. Chill between 7 and 9 a.m., preceded by thirst, soreness, and bone aching. Nausea, vomiting bile at the end of chills or hot stage, and throbbing headache. Thirst signals an impending chill.

Modalities: Worse periodically. Better with conversation and by getting on hands and knees.

Relationship: Compare with Bry., Sep., Nat-m., Chel., Nyctanthes arbor tristis (bilious fever, insatiable thirst, bitter vomiting at the end of chill, and constipation in children).

Dose: Tincture to third attenuation.EUPATORIUM PERFOLIATUM

selection of the potency

  1. Individualization:

    • Homeopathy is based on the principle of treating the individual, not just the disease. The unique symptoms and characteristics of the person are crucial in determining the most suitable potency.
  2. Intensity of Symptoms:

    • The intensity of the symptoms guides the choice of potency. If the symptoms are intense and acute, a lower potency (e.g., 6C, 30C) might be considered. For chronic conditions with less intensity, higher potencies (e.g., 200C, 1M) may be appropriate.
  3. Sensitivity of the Patient:

    • Some individuals are more sensitive to homeopathic remedies, while others may require higher potencies. The practitioner considers the patient’s sensitivity when selecting the potency.
  4. Acute vs. Chronic Conditions:

    • Lower potencies are often used for acute conditions, while higher potencies may be considered for chronic or long-standing issues.
  5. Previous Response to Potencies:

    • The patient’s response to previous homeopathic treatments helps guide the choice of potency. If a particular potency has been effective in the past, it may be repeated or adjusted as needed.
  6. Vital Force and Susceptibility:

    • Homeopathy views illness as a disturbance in the vital force. The practitioner assesses the patient’s overall vitality and susceptibility to determine the appropriate potency.
  7. Aggravation or Amelioration:

    • The direction of the symptom response (aggravation or amelioration) after taking a remedy can influence the choice of potency.
  8. Miasmatic Considerations:

    • In classical homeopathy, the concept of miasms (inherited disease tendencies) is considered. The practitioner take this into account when selecting the potency.
  9. Practitioner Experience:

    • The experience and preference of the homeopathic practitioner play a role. Some practitioners may have success with certain potencies based on their clinical experience.


  • Do not exceed the recommended dose by physician
  • Keep out of the reach of children
  • Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight
  • Maintain half an hour gap between food/drink/any other medicines and homoeopathic medicine
  • Avoid any strong smell in the mouth while taking medicine e.g. camphor, garlic, onion, coffee, hing

Medicine images use for reference only selection of homeopathic medicine depends on the individual’s specific symptoms and overall constitution. Moreover, homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine that treats the individual as a whole. In addition to addressing the physical symptoms, it takes into account the emotional and mental state of the person.
