REMEDY OF THE DAY: CHINA OFFICINALIS
or Cinchona Officinalis, Quinina, Peruvian bark used to make
Tincture. Used to treat Malaria.
Dr. Samuel Hahnemann as a chemist, and translating Alder Bonhaler
pharmacophea found this paragraph: “It is precisely to prove a remedy
in a healthy body, after asuring its odor, taste, give a small dose and
pay attention to all efects produced, the pulse, the respiration, the
secression, etc., and only then after observing all the sympthoms
produced in a healthy body, then you can prove them in an ill one.
He kept this idea, and translationg Treatise on Materia Medica of Dr.
Cullen observes the contradictory hypothesis about the use of Cinchona,
a Peruvian plant used to treat Malaria, his desire to experiment the
plant on a healthy person arised very strongly so Hahnemann desided
to try it on himself. So he triturated the plant, diluted it, drank 4 dracmas
of the tincture, he also prepared a tea and gave it to his friends and
after a week, his friends and himself had all the sympthoms of malaria.
In his second book Hahnemann wrote: I drank, to prove, twice a day
4 dracmas (one dracma equal 3.24 centigrams) of pure China.
my extremities and fingers turned cold, I felt sleepy and dreadful feeling
my heart was beatting, I was shaking although it was not winter,
weariness of the body, and of my limbs, pulsation on my head,
redness of the cheeks and the ear lobes, thirst and finally all these
sympthoms are characteristic of the intermittent fever. All these
paroxisms presented three to four hours long each time, reappearing
if I drank the same dose. So I stopped drinking and my health
returned. So Homeopathy was born 1790 first plant proved by Samuel
Hahnemann itself.
