cold sensation iu the hands and feet; mouth dry; great thirst, and desire

1st. A certain state of mental excitement, and augmentation of vital 
energy, florid face, and a sensation of heat throughout the body ; full and

from twenty to forty minutes in some, and disappeared after that time to 
return no more, without any further disturbance of health ; whilst in 
others, the symptoms were prolonged from one to two hours, and were fol- 
lowed by — 

2d. Depressed spirits ; dulness of the senses, and torpor of the mental 
faculties ; general debility, languor, and faintings in some. When these 
symptoms are followed by those of the first group, the phenomena of both 
sets are often repeated, and at certain intervals of time ; but neither of the 
two occur periodically, unless when they are together. Nor are they ab- 
solutely concomitant to pyrexia; for the paroxysms generally take, place 
without them, as in the natural disease. It is for this reason that such 
phenomena were disconnected from category of the physical group ; but 
whenever pyrexia occurs, or follows that condition, the symptoms, after 
weakness of the body and mind, are as follows : 

3d. Great thirst; yawning; cramps and painful feelings of contraction 
in the lower extremities; cold sensation in hands and feet; chills and shiv- 
ering of the whole body ; palpitation of the heart ; pulse weak and op- 
pressed ; hurried respiration ; chattering of the teeth and shaking of the

varied much in their intensity ; after which — 

4th. Dry heat follows, with a full and quick pulse; animated face; pro- 
fuse perspiration ; longing for cold in some, and for warm drinks in others; 
and discharge of pale urine in large quantities. These symptoms lasted 
from two to three hours, and were generally followed by a desire to sleep. 
The provers felt as if they were contused ; sound sleep in some, and some- 
what agitated in others during the night. 

The apyrexia generally lasted from fifteen to seventeen hours, after 
which, and in about the same time as the previous day, the paroxysms were 
repeated, as per Group 3d, and continued almost quotidian,*.

Chamomile.

f This prover (as also the other provers under Prof. Hoppe) kept accurate ac- 
counts of the condition before the proving ; their previous condition has been care- 
fully considered by the editor of this Encyclopedia, and the symptoms then observed 
have not been included in the proving. 

J At the conclusion of Haydel's provings Prof. Hoppe notes as follows: "After 
a month he reported that the stool had occurred only every second day; the tongue 
"vvas somewhat cleaner than before the proving; he had experienced no more pains 
in the arms and legs, and no more in the teeth ; on the velum there was shown the 
previous slight redness, and the mucus in the mouth was rusty-colored in the morn- 
ing, the gum was iirni and of a flesh color, and bled no more on brushing the teeth ; 
on hawking in the morning he brought up some clear blood (as before proving. — Ed.) ; 
pressure upon the stomach was somewhat painful ; rapid motion caused some palpi- 
tation ; chest and heart as formerly ; pulse, in the afternoon while sitting, 9'2, some- 
what small and soft. He felt generally well and vigorous, and was busy in his usual 
active way with his studies. From Chamomilla he experienced some improvement 
in his general condition, but for the most part the improvement had been only tran- 
sient. He did not know that I had given him Cham, to prove, but toward the end 
of his proving he suspected that it was the drug. It is true that this proving has 
its faults, but it cannot bo denied that the symptoms of Cham., as experienced by 
this young man, are remarkably numerous and clearly pronounced, and that he was 
able to observe these symptoms with special ability and jkill." 

I The editor has found it impossible to sift Prof. Hoppe's provings in any way 
that would furnish a reliable picture of the action of the drug. Prof. H. suffered 
habitually from : Isi, Dental periostitis in some bicuspids and tricuspids; 2d, Ten- 
dency to cerebral hyperajmia and vertigo ; 3d, Tendency to nasal catarrh ; 4th, Ten- 
dency to cough and to bronchial catarrh ; 5th, Palpitation of the heart ; 6th, Diar- 
rhoea; 7th, Various pains and muscular rheumatisms ; the action of the drug upon 
Prof. H. is, however, exceedingly interesting and instructive.

In onecase of ague its diuretic operation was evident; the urine discharged 
was almost black ; it appeared as if a few drops of sulphate of iron had 
been put into an astringent infusion. 

Patient laboring under ascites took a strong infusion of the plant ; the 
following nights he voided more urine than he had in the three nights and 
days previous put together ; " the color of his water has changed from that 
of brickdust to the exact hue of the infusion drank" (that is, like green 
tea). 

Organic disease of the liver. Tapping necessary ; took the infusion. 
" Its influence on the kidneys was apparent in two days, for the quantity 
of urine discharged in twenty-four hours amounted to two pints, and was 
soon increased to three and occasionally four pints; a decided effect was 
produced upon the stomach which we had not looked for, namely, an in- 
crease of appetite ; the strength improved daily, the countenance became 
less sallow, and the abdomen did not begin to fill for several weeks." 

A young man, who had drank a pint of the infusion, " would have slept 
well if he had not been constantly waked by calls to make water." 

An agreeable sensation was perceived in the stomach soon after taking 
it, followed in some instances by an extraordinary increase of appetite. 

It has produced sickness at the stomach, so that the patient could not 
continue its use. 

" A young woman, who took the extract, experienced great increase of 
appetite, as well as augmentation of the discharge of urine of a greenish 
color. She adds that at the same time she felt a most uncommon sensation 
in the small of her back in the region of the kidneys, sometimes on one side of

without occasioning pain or uneasiness of any sort ; she has never experienced 
the same sensation since she left off taking the medicine." 

The bruised leaves, held to the fire until they were as hot as could be 
endured, were applied to a shoulder aifected with acute rheumatism for 
three hours. " The application produced great heat, irritation, and red- 
ness, followed by such sharp pain that profuse sweat over the whole body 
ensued."

f This, together with 402, does not seem to be correctly observed ; for in all other 
observations I have found that the Cinchona fever has no thirst with the shivering 
or chill, see 1118, 1123, 11.31, 1147; the thirst appears much more after the shiver- 
ing or chill, as is shown by 397, 398, 1129, or, which aniounts to the same thing, just 
before the heat, 400. So, also, the thirst is not marlfcd during the fever of Cin- 
chona, even in the most developed hot stage, see 29, 1177, 1180, 1182, 1184, 1198, 
1203, 1221, except some burning of the lips, 1185, or dryness of them, see 406, 1203, 
although this dryness explains the expression "some thirst during the heat," 1187; 
for the "thirst during the transient heat," 1194, does not denote completely devel- 
oped feverish heat. Much more, however, does the thirst appear after the heat, 
309, 395, 1148, or what is the same thing, during the sweat, 1228, The feverish 
heat, accompanied by stinging over the whole body, seemed to maice an exception, 
see 1181, 1192.

renewed by simply touching the part, as in this symptom and 901, 916, and then 
often increase to a frightful severity; hence this bark is frequently the only remedy 
in similar cases. — H.

f Compare with note to 1013. Here we see expressed the peculiar weakness 
which Cinchona causes in such an excessive degree, and it is especially this kind 
that Cinchona can permanently remove, if the other morbid symptoms correspond 
to those caused by Cinchona This particular kind of weakness is very similar to 
the exhaustion caused by the loss of fluids. — H. 

% The weakness here noticed as if proceeding from great loss of the fluids is asso- 
ciated with 1, 987, 993, 994, 995, 1014, together with the mental symptoms (11, 32, 
40, 41, 47), also with the existence of disordered digestion, the disturbance after eat- 
ing, the much too easy sweating, especially on the back, on motion and during sleep, 
and the confusion of the head, and is exactly that weakness for which Cinchona is 
the only fit remedy, and it, almost without exception, affects persons who have lost an 
essential portion of their strength by haemorrhoids or frejuent bloodletting, by con- 
stant loss of milk from the breast, by excessive nursing of children, by excessive 
coition, or onanism, or frequent involuntary emissions, by profuse sweating during 
disease, by too powerful sudoriScs, by diarrliosas, or by frequently repealed cathar- 
tics. In the other forms of morbid exhaustion, when the disease itself does not And 
its remedy in this drug, Cinchona is always followed by the most pernicious results, 
frequently shortening the life of the patient; although, indeed, in these inappropri- 
ate cases an excitement of the vitality may be produced during the first few hours, 
but which is easily seen to be unnatural and forced, and which only tends to hasten 
death by the excessive excitement; and if in these cases its use be long continued, 
a cachexia diflScult to cure may be brought about by the malpractice of the physi- 
cian. — H.

Slowness of the pulse/". — Action on the circulation was constant ; it usually 
occurred half an hour after taking, and proportionate to the size of the 
dose, producing slowness of the pulse,". — Pulse regular, slow, scarcely per- 
ceptible,". — Pulse diminished four beats to a minute, within two hours,^*. — 
The pulse fell in a few days to 57, and then to 50 (from daily doses of 8 
decigrammes),". — [710.] Pulse on taking the drug, 80; after dinner it 
sank to 64 (whilst it was usually 73 to 75, at that time); in the evening, 
the pulse was normal, 75 (first day),^ — Pulse, on taking the drug in the 
morning, 60; after an hour, 62; taken at various times through the rest 
of the day 45 (fifth day),^ — Pulse became small, almost imperceptible, 
and fell to 40, 45 (from 32 decigrammes a day),". — Pulse 83, in the morn- 
ing of the third day before taking half a grain ; one hour after taking, it 
was 75,°. — Whilst eating in the evening, pulse 76 ; 72 after writing ; full, 
forcible (seventeenth day),*'. — Pulse diminished in frequency for about 30 
minutes; began to rise in 50 minutes; greatest frequency in 100 minutes 
(girl), (20 grains),". — For fifty minutes afterwards the pulse fell a little in 
frequency and gained' in strength. The fall was from 108 and 112 to 104 
and 96. After this it beat 120 in the minute, and at the same time lost in 
strength (boy),''. — Pulse at 9 A.m. 75, irregular, weak, and small (twenty- 
sixth day),'. — On those two occasions, when the temperature was decidedly 
depressed, the pulse beat the fastest when the temperature began to fall, 
and became less frequent again when the depression in the temperature 
was attained. On every occasion of the increase in the rapidity of the 
pulse there occurred also a loss of strength. On two occasions, when the 
pulse was at its quickest, the pulse became for a short time irregular and 
intermittent. On two other occasions the pulse, at first after the adminis- 
tration of the Quinia beat a little slower, and also grew in strength ; but 
this temporary loss in frequency and gain in strength, was soon followed 
by the opposite circumstances (girl),". — Pulse full, firm, in the forenoon 
(twenty-eighth day),*". — [720.] Strength of the pulse fell (boy), (two doses 
in one day),". — Pulse regular and very weak, scarcely perceptible (after

ness of mind and body, which sometimes precedes febrile diseases ; as if a 
little more of the same would make rae chilly. Have often experienced 
the same in Illinois, when laboring under malarial influences, and riding 
into valleys. It was like a sudden aura or magnetism, felt particularly 
about the neck and throat and face, and Pulsatilla then seemed remedial. 
It is the same feeling to-day, and disappears in the clear upper strata of 
air, where the opposite conditions of light, with dry warm atmosphere pre- 
vail (thirteenth day),*. — Subjective. During the day felt rather old 
and " wooden ;" motions and speech unusually deliberate (sixteenth day),*'. 
— Heaviness and disinclination to work during the whole day (eighth 
day),". — Felt heavy and drowsy, in the forenoon (seventeenth day),*'. — 
While walking muscular system felt inert, the will also ; stooped forward, 
that gravitation might supplement this inertia, in the forenoon (seventeenth 
day),*'. — -Felt weary in the morning (seventeenth day),*'. — Felt utterly 
weary ; had lost some sleep the past week ; only left the house under the

on rising in the morning (second day),*'. — The several shifting neuralgic 
pains iu the localities most frequently mentioned, have recurred at other 
times in slight degree, in addition to those here recorded. Also, once or 
twice iu the ball of the right thumb, in the evening (twentieth day),*'. — 
Frequently I find sudden motions cause catching dull or spraining pains, 
e. g., in outer fibres of deltoid tendons, when raising arms; in tendons in 
front of left ankle, when flexing the joint suddenly. Prior to proving had 
a sprained feeling in last articulation of right little finger, especially when 
shaking hands with others ; it seems worse of late, especially after the 
doses (seventeenth day),*'. — Internal quivering sensation through the body, 
at middle, followed by slight eructation, in the afternoon (twenty-fifth 
day),*'. — At various times since proving began, little shocks or pricks like 
neuralgia or rheumatism in divers places, as left supra-orbital nerve, right 
ear, right elbow, right knuckle, etc. (sixteenth day),*'. — During the after- 
noon and evening, spent mostly in street-car, on walking, or visits, had a 
rapid succession of transient, and principally slight symptoms, shifting 
locality, dull, sharp, crampy, etc., as crampy feeling in left hypochondrium 
in a small spot, probably in left rectus muscle ; sticking in the right ax- 
illary folds (twenty-fifth day),*'. — (The interest of the symptoms seems to 
lie largely in their frequent shifting and recurrence in all parts of the body, 
in localities new and old, many such being necessarily here omitted) (twenty- 
sixth day),*'. — This morning, symptoms all seem wanting, for the first time. 
My impression is that my system, under the influence of the last dose, has 
established a " tolerance " of the drug, which I take to be another phrase, 
a synonym, for the incipiency of that vital resistance or " reaction " which 
characterizes Hahnemann's "secondary effects," in the "resolution" of its 
" primary " pathogenetic action, i. e., of return to health ; the phenomena 
being alternately and periodically, both primary and secondary, probably 
in all cases, the former waning, the latter increasing up to full health ; 
these thence ought to be easily distinguished (twenty-first day),*'. 

Skin,— Objective, Skin soft, in the forenoon (nineteenth day),*'.— 
skin of fingers, knuckles, etc., when pinched up, retains the fold ; color 
normal, in the morning (second day),*'. — [940.] After three or four days

quamation of thick scales; with this the general condition is only slightly 
disturbed, sometimes with slight febrile symptoms and gastric disturbances; 
its usual course is of one or two weeks,".f — [950.] Colorless eruption on
