Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Benzoic Acid. in traditional homeopathic usage, not approved by the FDA.
Have you ever used Benzoic Acid.? Yes No
The grand central characteristic of Benzoic Acid. is found in the urine, which is scanty, of a dark brown color (like French brandy), the urinous odor being highly intensified. This odor comes at the time of passing and remains afterward. One need not wait on a long-standing specimen to find it. It is found in connection with rheumatism, quinsy, dropsy, diarrhoea, headache and other diseases. Of course many other remedies have offensive urine, like Nitric Acid Nitric acid urine offensive like horse urine, Berberis Vulgaris Berberis, but the deposit is turbid, Calc Carb Calcarea ostrearum, but the deposit is white. Benzoic acid often smells horribly, with no deposit at all. Both Benzoic acid and Berberis Vulgaris Berberis are great remedies for arthritic troubles with the urinary symptoms. Lycopodium Lycopodium and Lithium carb. also claim attention in this affection, the concomitants deciding the choice. I have seen wonderful relief from Benzoic acid in nephritic colic with the characteristic offensive urine. In dribbling of urine of old men with enlarged prostrate it has also done good service. The urine in the clothing scents the whole room. Menstrual difficulties and prolapsus uteri with the characteristic urinary symptoms are. also relieved by it. Heart troubles of rheumatic origin also. So we have a widely diversified list of diseases in which Benzoic Acid. is the one, and all seem to be connected with this one strong characteristic symptom.
