Homeopathic Acute Prescribing VI
Flu as An Example
The main dynamic in Rhus tox is that motion causes pain at first, but then the pain is relieved with continued motion. After too much motion, though, the pain returns from overuse. This dynamic makes the Rhus tox patient extremely restless: they are in pain, and they are always looking for a position that will relieve it. The Rhus tox flu makes it so that the homeopathic patient “can’t rest in any position.” It may even feel as if the bed is too hard, so that they move around looking for a comfortable place. They may feel a bit stiff and want to stretch their limbs and joints.
