AMMONIUM GROUP (NH4) DR. TARKESHWAR JAIN MD ( HOMOEO) ASTT.PROF; DR M P K HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICAL COLLEGE, HOSPITAL AND RESEARCH CENTRE, JAIPUR (INDIA)
INTRODUCTION Ammonium is only occasionally taken in and then almost completely synthesized in liver to urea. Only traces of salts escape synthesis and circulate in blood.
PHYSIOLOGICAL ROLE RRole in phase of excretion. BBuffering of urine with a sparing of alkali. IIts liberated in decomposition accompanying muscle and nerve activity. TThis process is irreversible and results in weakening and paralyzing effects of muscles and nerves under the influence of ammonia.
AAmmonia develops in erythrocytosis. EExcess of metabolic end product damage the erythrocytes. EExcess of ammonia is expelled through respiratory system, involvement of mucous membrane of respiratory passages is important.
AMMONIA GROUP Rancor Grudge Resentment Anger Aggression Hate/Critical Close Minded Reserved Disappointment Gloom/Bitterness Idealism Antagonized by Ver Vir/digitalis Aconite/cold Cardiac sedatives Action favored by Heat/Opium/iodine Valeriana/asafoetida Alcohol Resembles Acidums, Ign, Natrums, Nitricums Inflm.of of Muscles Inflm.of of RT Central vasomotor Collapse Prolong anesthesia Ammonia intoxication Desires: coffee Alcohol, sweet Sour, Aversion: Meat, potato <3hr, lying, Discharge: acrid, yellow water Exhaustion
