More than any other remedy I've ever used, Sanicula seems to be good for distemper weakness. Muriatic acid I would class as a distant second to this amazing find.
First, sanicula is considered the chronic of Chamomilla. It has every wickedness and irritation of Chamomilla. For example, Bowring boi had taken to a repetitive two note bark at the loudest he can manage through a hoarse throat. Nothing short of murder will get him to stop esp after a meal (which he eats with great gusto but probably can't digest easily). He refuses to change sides from his right, but it probably hurts from being constantly under pressure, so I have to force him to turn which has him snapping and screaming. Once in the other side he sleeps well. All the stubborn, obstinate, brainlessness of Chamomilla behaviour is in this remedy. Loves to be touched and cossetted, but it jars him since his nerves are overwrought.
Maybe nervous problems left behind by distemper which were not dealt with during its acute stage (which is almost impossible in a street dog) can be healed later with this remedy.
I'm assuming straight off that it would be best used at full moon, not halfway between like I'm doing now, nor at New moon. The insanity of nerve irritation at full moon - the snarling, fighting, suspicious and angry nervous energy would be calmed. Itching and hot spots, And the other extreme of weaker dogs doing irritating things like whining, self-mutilating (like chewing off legs?), and repetitive behaviour might also be controlled by this remedy.
The main areas - respiratory and digestion, with a bone-deep weakness typical of the ,mixed miasm, evolved diseases - are covered by this remedy.
The clenched jaw with spasms, colic and near collapse coma-like state. The weakness remaining after diarrhoea.
I've just bought Sanicula 50m and cm and I'm bursting with excitement. Just think, I could have saved 3Peg, Big boi and the white amputee in this last month with this remedy.
There was one dog, my little Vasanthi, whose whose weakness got so extreme, her eyeballs would bounce in the socket like marbles. Distemper puppies will have their eyeballs sunken deep into the socket just before they die - Sanicula might have saved all of them because this is a leading symptom.
Sanicula in 10m helped Bowring boi: he's isn't howling painfully anymore (Sarsaparilla), clenching his jaw so tight that his lip is caught and isn't collapsed between his paws without the strength to lift his own head either.
He still can't pee on his own and can barely push his clayey gray stool out (which was black with a sandy grit at first, then green, then reddish-brown, and now the typical sanicula gray). But I have hope now that the day will soon come.
Hope for all distemper dogs and cats that they can live fully again.
A note of caution since the dog died. The improvement didn't last. I'll try it again before I get excited.
