(Gila Monster)


The bite causes paralysis similar to paralysis agitans or locomotor ataxia, without a tetanic phase—opposite to Hydr-ac. or Stry. The most notable effect is on a mouse’s eye, causing eyeball protrusion and corneal opacity due to blood pressure behind the eye (Boyd). Homeopathically, it treats diseases with extreme coldness. Cold waves move from the occiput to the feet or ascend.

Head: Deep depression. Sensation of tilting to the right. Cold band encircling the head; cold pressure inside the skull. Heavy eyelids. Pain starts in the right ear, circles to the back of the head, and reaches the left ear.

Face: Cold, tingling sensation as if facial muscles are taut.

Mouth: Cold, tender, dry tongue. Very thirsty. Difficulty swallowing. Cold breath.

Chest: Cold sensation in lungs and heart. Slow, effortful thumping of the heart (oppressive heart action).

Back: Coldness across the shoulder blades. Burning sensation along the spine.

Extremities: Numbness and shaking (Parkinson’s-like paralysis). Bluish discoloration of hands. Coldness. Feeling of walking on a sponge, with feet seeming swollen. Unsteady gait. Stiff-legged gait. When walking, raises feet higher than usual and heels hit the ground firmly (unsteady movement). Feet as cold as ice or burning. Stretching eases muscle and limb pain.

Fever: Internal coldness, as if frozen. Cold rings around the body. Cold spells (Abies-c., Acon.). Cold patches. Arctic coldness. Subnormal temperature—96 degrees (Camph.).

Relationship: Compare with Lacerta agilis (Green lizard) for skin eruptions, vesicles under the tongue, heightened mental acuity, difficulty swallowing, excessive saliva, nausea, and intense stomach pressure. Also compare with Camph., Lach.

Dose: Thirtieth potency.

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
