Colocynthis, Staphisagria and Causticum are in-fact one remedy. If a woman comes in school and sees that her daughter is treated unfairly annoys her about it and gets cramping abdominal pain, that is Colocynthis or when someone as a child was very sensitive and was not accepted by the mother and was ill treated, with bedwetting, black teeth and so on, that is Staphisagria. It is the first remedy in pain from amputation. Also think of Staphisagria in case of inflammation of the bladder after injury of the urethra due to catheterization. Staphisagria are very proud people and when they are suppressed or hit by somebody there is an internal anger. They don’t show this anger, it remains inside and then they develop cancer and things like that. If someone has come for psoriasis and have black teeth, you can give Staphisagria. But later when they are taller and stronger, they go out and start fighting then they develop to Causticum.
