|Gastro-intestinal tract (G-I.)
(on giving up)
Exudative. Glandular. Ulcerative. Malignant
Sclerotic. Hysterical. Syphilitic
Quite faithful to its pedigree, it retains many of the features of its parent Aurum. Starts on the degenerative process like Aur-m, but, it soon abandons them, yet in malignacies goes ahead of it. And, unlike both Aur and Aur-m., its troubles start (like Ars or Graph.) from the GI tract, and the heart is not much involved.
Is the Natrum element responsible for this ?
For the rest all the three are almost replicas of each other. Modalities may here prove guiding.
Aur has syphilis grafted on a scrofulous background and is chilly. Aur-m has sycosis grafted on a syphilitic background and is warm. Aur-m-n has syphilis grafted on sycosis (like Fl-ac) and is more tumorous and malignant, while Aur-m is more ulcerative.
