MATERIA MEDICA OF DNA
DNA is a less known homoeopathic medicine but having wide clinical applications. Deoxyribonucleic [ DNA ] is the fundamental genetic material of all the cells. DNA was proved by Dr. O.A.Julian of Paris from 1970 to1972. DNA has great utility in paediatric practice. I find this medicine mostly getting indicated in adolescence and in early adulthood.I have also used this medicine for a few middle aged men whose behavior is like that of adolescents.
The DNA children and adolescents are mentally idiotic but sexually precocious. They are nervous and emotionally unstable .Comprehension is difficult. They confuse one subject with the other and hence they are mostly backward in schools and colleges. Though they are mentally backward physically they are restless, they want to be occupied always. They do not want to be idle, but because of their mental backwardness, they are unable to accomplish their works. This failure inhibits them and makes them turn inwards. In short DNA people are 'DUAL PERSONALITY'. People-on one side having desire to work, to conquer easily but on the other side idiotic, sluggish and resentful. This double personality reflects in their sexuality also. They are sexually precocious and tend to seduce. But their unstable, hypersensitive, irritable attitude results in failure in their relation with the mates. This failure leads into a reserved attitude, they want to get isolated leading to a state of onanism. The DNA people are anxious with out any reason. They are highly irritable and vexed of worldly affairs, asking questions like "what is the use of doing this or that?
