Preventing and treating lymphangitis with Bufo bufo

Depending on the case, the germs responsible for this disease can be Staphylococcus or Streptococcus. The disease may manifest itself in several forms. In some cases, it is accompanied by fever and a deep reddening of the skin, due to the swelling of small lymphatic vessels caused by the bacteria. When entire lymphatic vessels are infected, they can cause a general tightening of the skin, resulting in painful sensations. The use of Bufo bufo is an excellent way to remedy this condition.

Pathology and homeopathy are two fields of scientific research that go hand in hand. As a matter of fact, homeopathic research on a disease is always accompanied by a pathological study of that disease. Pathology is the scientific field that studies diseases, while homeopathy is a gentle method for treating diseases. Homeopathic treatment follows the principles of similarity (Similia similibus curentur or "likes are cured by likes") and comprehensiveness. There is no universal treatment for a given disease; it must be adapted to each patient.
