DIOSCOREA VILLOSA Q when given in hot water, in cases of Appendicitis will cause the intense pain to fade away and give ease to the patient.
Dr. Anchtz.

Its field clinically seems to be the chronic gallbladder with paroxysms of severe pain. I have used this many times with success though the well-known modality of being better from bending backward is not present. The pains shift suddenly to different parts and in remote localities; gripping and cutting with radiating pain.

Dr. Garth W. Boericke, M.D.

DIOSCOREA is excellent for what we may term atonic seminal emissions. The organs are so relaxed that 2 or 3 dreams with emissions of semen occur in a single night. The day following emissions, the patient feels weak particularly about the knees. In these cases, I know of no remedy like DIOSCOREA. I usually give it in the 12th Potency and afterwards in the 30th.

Dr. Farrington, M.D.

In my gallbladder cases, as a routine, I see combinations of CHELLIDONIUM, CHIONANTHUS & HYDRASTIS, and equal parts and in many cases, the patient is relieved. However, for an acute attack, DIOSCOREA is helpful and at times, curative.

Dr. Garth W. Boericke, M.D.
