Fagopyrum Aesculentum and Homoeopathy

Fagoprum the common buck wheat is a neglected remedy despite the fact that it has been rather extensively proven. Its pathogenesis occupies twenty four pages in Allen’s encyclopedia of Pure Materia Medica. An instructive paper on Fagopyrum was read before the American institute in 1873 by D.C. Perkins of Rockland. It is safe to say that not one in ten of those who practice the healing art have ever used it or its familiar Dr. Perkins appraisal of this remedy.
