There is hardly any Homeopath who can depend solely on 12 biochemic tissue remedies, as propounded by Dr. Sehussler but the affectivity of all such tissue salts has already been proved beyond a shadow of doubt, with the result that biochemic tissue remedies are part and parcel of homeopathic armoury of medicines. There is no exaggeration in saying without fear of being contradicted, that tissue remedies and homeopathic remedies. In fact, reciprocally supplement each other and no homeopath can do away with either of the disciplines.

Biochemic combination No.7 is comprised of (i) Calcarea Phos (ii) Ferrum Phos (iii) Kae Phos (iv) Natrum Phos and (v) Natrum Sulph. In their book, the twelve tissue remedies, Drs. Willian Boericke and Willis Dewey, have classically unravelled in their own inimitable style of master craftsmen, have taken pains to explain the viewpoint of a writer on the biochemic treatment of diabetes. We reproduce as to how a biochemist has to say about the diabetes, in so far as its treatment under the tissue remedies is concerned:

“Lactic acid is composed of carbonic acid and water and must be split upon its way to the lungs. This is done by the catalytic action of sodium phosphate (Natrum Phos) in the blood. Any deficiency of sod. Phos will cause a disturbance in the water in the system by allowing an excess of lactic acid to accumulate. Nature, in her effort to eliminate the water, produces the symptoms called diabetes.”

“But while a lack of sod phos is the principal cause of diabetes, the chief remedy is sod phos, because it regulates the supply of water in the blood. Sod phos also gives oxygen so necessary for the process of the decomposition of sugar, and thereby, prevents its reaching the kidneys as sugar, and also thins so its normal consistency, bile that the become dissipated from a lack of sod phos.”

“If a case of diabetes has advanced to any considerable degree, the kidneys will have become inflammed by the lactic acid and sugar that passes through them. This injury to the tissue of the kidney calls upon the red which will, in most cases, cause a deficiency in that inorganic salt. Nature, in her efforts to supply iron, will probably draw on the nerve fluid, Potassium Phosphate (Kali Phos) will be too rapidly consumed, and the patient suffers from nervous prostration.”

For diabetes Mellitus, therefore, the biochemic treatment would be through phosphates of sodium, Iron and Potassium and Sulphate of Sodium, detailed as under.

Meant for functional disturbance of nerve centres caused by demand on the blood for pot. Phos, producing sleepleness and varacious hunger, pot. Phos is an infallible remedy. It establishes normal functioning of medulla oblongata and pneumo-gastric nerve which latter acts on stomach and lungs.

For the great thirst, emaciation and despondency. It equally distributes the water in the system and quickly restores the normal condition.

Note: -
1. Where two or more phosphates are required and indicated, they should be combined but (Nat Sulph) Sod. Sulphate and Sod. Chloride (Nat Mur) should always be given separately in solutions. Give calcium phosphate (Calcarea Phos), after each meal, in a small dose when there is great emaciation or/and poor appetite
2. In my opinion, diet cuts but little figure in the treatment of diabetes except as to the amount of food taken. The main object is to have the food digest. Diabetic patients should never overeat; better eat six times daily than overeat once. Of course the diet of fat, meats or greasy food cannot be beneficial for the very important fact that it overworks the liver, causes a deficiency and consequent thickening of bile and mucus, and sometimes a crystallization of cholestrin in gall-duct which gives rise to symptoms called hepatic colic, jaundice and bilious headache.”
Dr. P.Jousset and his son experimented on presence of sugar in Urine/Blood and claimed that the following recommended pattern can benefit, to enormous extent, the diabetics (which to our mind are merely recommendations) but may benefit to some cases.

    Biochemic therory works well. Diabetes is a very common disease. It occurs in any individuals irrespective of age. There are many signs and symptoms of diabetes. A general blood glucose test is carried out for detecting diabetes. Frequent urination is the primary symptom. Weight loss, fatigue, exhaustion, sores, skin infection, blurred vision etc. For more details refer signs and symptoms of diabetes

    Diagnosis of Diabetes can be controlled and prevented. Always consider the food you take, avoid junks and eat more fruits and vegetables. Have a regular physical activity and lastly, have a regular self testing to track the results of your effort in preventing diabetes.

    Nice post. Along with any kind of diabetes treatment plan, attending diabetes education classes can bring a great difference in a person's health and lifestyle. Some times these classes can make diabetes management easy. Diabetes Education Classes Hemet
