My wife had three times prolapsus of the uterus in the third month of pregnancy. Twice this had caused miscarriage. The second time the after-birth was not discharged, so that the physician had to remove it, using chloroform. As this required several days, and my wife’s complexion was turning yellow, I was afraid that there was decomposition of the placenta with blood poisoning, so I secretly gave her Kali phos. After a week, to the great surprise of the physician, everything had returned to the normal, only the prolapsus continued for some time longer. He and his assistant very decidedly advised a surgical operation. We consulted a homoeopathic physician, who under the circumstances gave the same advice. Still we preferred to wait a little, and the prolapsus, after some time, gradually returned to normal conditions, as it were, of itself.
After two years my wife was with child again, and complained in the beginning of the third month of leucorrhoea and burning in the parts. Alumina, which I had before given in similar circumstances, failed to act. After two weeks she again had a prolapsus, which every day protruded more from the vagina, especially after extra work. On a renewed examination, I perceived a disagreeable odor in the discharge which colored the linen yellow, and in consequence I gave her Kali phos. 6D., every day a tablet. The success surpassed our expectations. Not only was considerably, resumed its normal position, and to-day there is no sign of its sinking down. My wife is thirty-two years of age and otherwise of a healthy, blooming appearance. She is not able to lie still and take care of herself, as she has no servant and has to attend to the housework, and to take care of her two children. The result can therefore be ascribed solely to Kali phos. I was led to this remedy, besides to symptoms given above, by the mental state as given in Dr. Schuessler’s Therapy under this remedy. This is another proof that in cases where no particular cause can be discovered, secondary circumstances and symptoms may determine the correct choice of the remedy. – Missionary K.
