SirConstipation worse Tobacco
doesn't this rubric mean that smoking makes the person constipated?
We are all physicians and l believe we need to know the mechanism of the body first. Please reclaim if l am wrong, but cigarettes contain nicotine and surely affect nicotinic receptors . Bowels have these receptors.Surely after smoking for a long time these receptors exposed to more nicotine than the healthy system they become refracter to it's normal/non-smoking state. According to the rules of homeopathy and the masters of this science we shouldn't consider this symptom and try to find a rubric.
As an example most of the acute inflammatory diseases have the loss of appetite but if you check the repertories this rubric has very much remedies so you cannot count on it, thus most of us/homeopaths don't take this suffering as a symptom because the usual situation would come up.
ln my opinion, constipation while quitting smoking is such a symptom. l would recommed also fibre diet, more hydration and exercise (if not enough support with some magnesium complexes in pharmacy) for the patient till the body becomes balanced on its own and get rid of the toxins of smoking. After a while l would watch the case, repertorise it if it still has the symptom and find a similimum.
