Keynotes Of Some Outstanding New Provings

The following four remedy key note pictures are based on material in my forth comings on material in my forth coming book , material medica and repertory and repertory provings

LOPHOPHORA WILLIALMS11

Lophophora williamsii is Mexican peyote , the proving by unger was based on a tincture of the old plant . it was first reported in Allgemeine homoopathische zeitung , An English translation by Edward Whit mont nd myself will appear in a forthcoming issue of the journal of the American institute of homoeopathy . Hale and Mitchell did some earlier , partial provings reported by Clarke in his dictionary under the name Anhalonium lewinii

The key notes of this remedy is schizophrenia between the conscious and unconscious life of the patient .There is a retreat from objective reality into inner life so rich and so varied that the outer that the outer world has lost its meaning . its bluish green body is below the surface of the earth , or mythologically in the realm of telluric forces of the unconciou world , and only the rose tinted leaves , the pink to purple flowers , the crimson fruit and the yellow stamen and style extend as a button ,above the ground in the airy,extra –telluric forces of the unconscious world , and only the rose tinted leaves , the pink to purple flowers , the crimson fruit and the yellow stamen and stle extend as a button above the ground in the airy , extra telluric world of mythological consciosness

Possibly as the result of this separation between the conscious , physiological consciouness .

Possibly as the result of this separation between the conscious and the unconconscious , physiologically there is an all pervading lethargy and a depressionof the usual instincts of sex , hunger and a desire for companionship , in this action is similar to that following opium smoking , yet , inspite of the lethargy , insomnia is marked , particularly at night from over activity of the mind

The cerebral dissociation is accompanied by many peripheral , neurological symptoms such as numbness , formication and anaesthesia , particularly of the tongue and the limbs . it shares the feeling of an electric current of x-ray

The visual aberrations are among the richest of our material madica . out standing are noise and touch seen as color , perspective completely distorted . The visual impression may be so powerful as to drown out all mental functions . blue and green perception are increased ; red and yellow decreased . in this , the objective red and yellow of consciousness has been displaced by the more subjective blues and greens , closer to the ultravoilent in the visual spectrum

A unique symptom was green experienced as a metallic taste ; two dimentional objects appear multi-dimentional

In the mental sphere there is such a wide range of   symptoms as to make analysis extremely difficult .As we have said , outstanding is the increased involvement in the inner life to the exclusion of the outer . complete absence of will so that volition has become autocratic , divorced from any mental control . most of the classic symptoms of religious experience can be found here –the euphoria , the loss of self consciousness and the feeling of union with a greater self and the eternal renunciation of the world .Among delusion there is the classic schizopherenic one that faces appear mask like

In my own hands a catatonic schizophrenic with religious delusions and sexual exhibitionism , appeared to be so ameliorated by the 200 centismal of this remedy that the psychiatric staff were amazed at her rapid return to reality after one day on thorazine

Botanically it is related the other cactaceae , cactus grandiflora , cereus bonplandii , cerpentinus and opuntia

In gross dilutions it is used to allay hunger and thirst and general fatigue

HEDERA HELIX

This is the comnomon ground ivy., or English ivy , A tincture of the young shoots was prepared and proven by Julius mezer in molecular dilutions . his proving was reported in his gesichete homoeopathiche arzneimittellehre and an English translation of this was in the J . Amer> inst> hom> Hedera was included in clark’s dictionary of material madica on the basis of its clinical use in rickets and hydrocephalus, but merger’s was the first true homoeopathic proving of hedera

Among non-marine plants hedera has one of the highest concentrations of iodine . from this follows its relationship to the symptoms of hyper-thyroidism . indeed as a key note , one might call hedera “vegetable iodine”there is marked anxiety “particularly about the heart”

It is primarily in the cardiac sphere that heredera and iodium have a similar action . both have constriction of the heart with piercing , needle like pains (arsenicum album , anacardium , naja , phosphorous ) hedera has been of great service in myocardial infarction and should be considered along with other great heart remedies , hegera also has the organic hypertrophies of iodium (prostatic as well as thyroid )

Therefore hedera shares with iodium many of the pathological signs and symptoms of hyperthyroisdm but contrsts with iodium in the expansion of these into the subtle sphere of subjective ,,physiological response . in this manner hedera gives us one more effective agent for the individualization of the treatment of hyperthyroidism .

The out standing symptoms of iodium not shared eighter with the clinical symptoms of hyperthyroidism ,

The out standing symptoms not shared either with the clinical symptoms of hyperthyroidism or the symptom of iodium is a generalisedtingling of the joints , muscles and nerves

Botanically , hedera is related to the other araliaceae Araliaracemosa and ginsing , its chemical relation ship to iodium has been discussed , homoeopathically , mezer relates it to  natrum muriaticum and to silicea terra

Clinically , in homoeopthic dilutions , hedera has been of particular value in hyperthyroidism , gall stones and cholecystitis and chronic cirrhosis , in gross dilutions it has been udused to cure drunkenness for worms , late menses , varicose veins and retarded menses

BUTHUS AUSTRALIS

An arthropod , a member of the scorpion fmily , whose habitat  is north Africa

The original proving was conducted by Azam with a 6th centesimal dilution of a tincture of the venom . it was reported in French in L homeopathie Francaise , January and February . An English translation by me is in the journal of the American instituty of homoeopathy,

Like all arthropods , the hard part of the body is external , sheltering the soft , inner parts , The hard , outer part of the body in silicea , are silicea , in the hair and nails . indeed symptomatically , bothus appears to be an insect silicea

The mentals like silicea there is a throbbing head ache , lachrymation , photophobia , sneezing difficult swallowing and loss of libido . there is chilliness as in silicea , with icy cold extremeties and chills associated with thoracic and cerivical pains . there  are profuse cold night sweats . interestingly enough , the insect itself inits own habits shows the opposite picture . it is intensely sensitive to heat and will soon die if left to the direct rays , therefore , it is a night feeder , remaining concealed under rocks during the day time

Peculiar not shared with silicea are “sensation of heat on the heart” and “a sensation of a piece of wood nailed between the heart and the lungs “ there is yearly periodicity “arsenicum album , carbo vegetabilis , cenhris,lachris , sulfur , tarantula , thuja “and marked salivation as extreme as in mercury

Zoologically buthus is related to all the venoms and is related to some of them also homoeopathically , for instance to apis and vespa through the sensation of being pierced by red hot needles , fatigue , suffocation and constriction of the throat . clinically , buthus in homoeopathic solution has been of value in drug addiction .

X-RAY

Aprofound remedy whose isopathic value for complaints secondary to old x-radiationtherapy . however in addition to this isopathic use x-ray has a wide spectrum of unusual homoeopthic symptoms

Two of our own members proved x-ray , Dr. Fincke in 1897 . both men based their medicines on absolute alcohol which had been exposed to x-radiation . fincke used the 6x in his proving ; Griggs used the 30th and 200th centesimal

The discovery of x-ray by roentgen in 1895 was the first laboratory demonstration of the world of sub- molecular energies that archeal plasma from which the elements are born and to .which they return afterdisintegration . in a similar manner , x-ray appears to operate at the formative level with in the human being , both physically and physiologically . the primitive , inchotate basis of life itself is affected .

In the mental sphere the heard ininstinct is affected resulting in an aversion to company and even a desire to kill before and during the menses . there is the sensation of smelling sulfur of the sub-molecular plasma . desire for food and sleep are both diminished . the sexual instinct is activated , resulting in lewd , trouble some dreams . in the sphere of generalities old complaints reappearance again the primitive taking over

More specifically electrical is a sensation of electricity in general , particularly in the hands and arms (lopphophora williamsii is the only other remedy with this symptom amd it also is characterized by the activation of primitive forces ) Also discharges are green (sputum , stool and menses )

Other than these symptoms associated with primitiveness , there are cold ness with sensitivity to drafts , palpitation and stiching pains in the right chest extentending to scapula like radium there are aching joint pains . A peculiar symptom is “sensation of ingrowing toenails “ (crude x-ray poisoning may cause falling finger nails)

Other symptoms of x-ray poisoning poisoning are the more generally known symptoms of x-ray sickness ; nausea skin ulcers and cancers , falling hair , sterility , cracks in the finger tips and a general suppression of all the cellular elements of the blood save the heterophile leukocytes which increase ( radium also has this) , it is interesting to note that the irritability and the desire to kill are also found toxic symptom

Physically , x-ray is related to our other radioactive elements , radium and uranium nitrate . The homoeopathic relations have not been described as yet

Clinically , in homoeopathic delusions x-ray has helped bleeding , cracked fingers , and arthritic pains . it is in the first rank for suppressed eruptions or foot sweat , or lack of rection in general .

Jourl. Of Amrican institute of homoeopathy .

Possibly as the result of this separation between the conscious and the unconscious , physiologically there is an all pervading lethargy and a depression of the usual instincts of sex , hunger and a desire for companionship (in this action is similar to that following opium smoking), yet ,in spite of the lethargy , insomnia is marked possibly as the resuly of this separation between the cobscious and the unconscious , physiologically, there is an all pervading lethargy and a depression of the usual instincts of sex , hunger and a desire for companionship (in this the action is similarto that following opium smoking)

The cerebral diassociation is accompanied by many peripheral , neurological symptoms such as numbness , formication and anaesthesia , particularly of the tongue and the limbs , it shares the feeling of an electric current of x-ray .

The visual aberrations are among the richest of our material medica , outstanding

Are noise and touch seen as color , perspectives completely distorted . The visual impression may be so powerful as to drown out all mental functions . blue and green perception are increased ; red and yellow decreased . in this , the objective red and yellow of consciousness has been displaced by the more subjective blues and greens , closer to the ultra violet in the visual spectrum

A unique symptom was green experienced as a metallic taste ; also ,two dimensional multi-dimensional in the mental sphere there is such a wide range of symptoms as to make analysis extremely difficult .As we have said , outstanding is the increased involvement in the inner life to the exclusion of the outer . complete absence of will so that volition has become autocratic , divorced from any mental control . most of the classic symptoms of religious experience can be found here –the euphoria , the bliss , the loss of mundane time sense , the loss of self –consciousness and the feeling of union with a greater self , and the eternal renunciation of the world . Among delusion there is the classic schizophrenic one that “faces appear mask-like”

In my own hands a catatonic schizopherenic with religious delusions and sexual exhibitiorated , appeared to be so ameliorated by the 200 centismal of this remedy that the psychiatric staff were amazed at her rapid return to reality after one day on thorazine

Botanically it related to the other cactacease-cactus grandiflora , cerus bonplandii, cerus serpentines and opuntia.

In gross dilutions it is used to ally hunger and thirst and general fatigue

There is marked anxiety (particularly about the throat , increased appetite , constipation , insomnia , profuse perspiration , a desire for the open air and extreme and extreme tiredness . Although from its iodine content , one might expect a similarity of symptoms to iodium , there
