 Clinically SEPIA has given grateful relief in some cases of complete inguinal hernia with distressing dragging and bearing down sensation. The size of the hernia has been considerably reduced and the pressure symptoms largely overcome.  In these cases, the cross-legged sitting posture of SEPIA was habitual, although the value of this symptom in the case of hernia may be questioned, as this posture tends to reduce the hernia and may therefore be entirely of mechanical origin.

 Sinusitis: in my experience, SEPIA is a treasure in sinusitis, and also STICTA in the dry ones.

 Sensation as if the fetus in the uterus has stopped moving inside the uterus: SEPIA 1.M.

Dr. Knerr.

 In the misplacement of the uterus, whether from prolapse, ante-version, or ante-flexion, SEPIA will in most cases restore it to the normal position; so great is my confidence in recent cases that I never resort to manipulation.

Dr. Mercy.

 One of the important uses of SEPIA is in traumatic affections of the heart associated with annoying empty eructation. Often there is the history, perhaps years back, of cardiac involvement in some severe acute fever, compensation has taken place and but slight evidence of the old lesion remains.  Over-lifting, running or over-fatigue suddenly affect the heart and it is just this combination that SEPIA fits especially where there is an uncertain, unsteady feeling about the heart, aching down the left arm and the persistent eructation.

Dr. E. Underhill, M.D.

 When you get a head-nodding child, think of the possibility of SEPIA for it; do not dash off to one of the typical chorea remedies at once.
