    Lyssin hydrophobinum

    Key Uses:
  • Choking sensation when swallowing, with profuse saliva
  • Excessive sexual energy
  • Fear, irritability, and a desire to pass stools or urinate, triggered by sight or sound of running water
  • Nervous system, throat, and sexual organ disorders, such as uterine prolapse
  • Pain during sexual intercourse

    Origin : Saliva from a rabid dog.

    Background : Rabies is an acute viral infection that affects both wild and domestic animals and, more rarely, humans. Transmitted by saliva, it is almost always fatal in humans.

    Preparation : The saliva is rendered sterile, then dissolved in purified water, diluted, and succussed.

    Remedy Profile : Lyssin is most appropriate for people who tend to be mentally excited and hyperactive, and have extreme sensitivity to stimuli such as light, noise, and odors. They may be affected by phobias and compulsive disorders associated with ritualistic behavior patterns and violence. There may be a personal or parental history of rabies vaccination in those who suit Lyssin.
    Physical symptoms generally affect the nervous system, throat, and sexual organs. Typically, the sight or sound of running water may cause fear, irritability, and a desire to pass stools or urinate, possibly involuntarily. On trying to swallow, there is a choking sensation, with profuse saliva that is spat out. In addition, the sight of glistening objects may cause distress.
    Further conditions that may be associated with Lyssin include excessive sexual energy and pain during sexual intercourse due to a sensitive vagina. There may also be uterine prolapse.

    Symptoms Better : For gentle rubbing; for steam baths.

    Symptoms Worse : For the heat of the sun; for the sound or sight of running water; for emotional stress; for bad news.
