Conclusion – We agree with Dr. T.F. Allen who pens in the preface of his Handbook of Materia Medica – “Much might be said concerning the reliability of our symptomatology, the errors that have been perpetuated from year to year in old material and in new material obtained by faulty methods are well known. There is no

doubt that some of even Hahnemann’s symptoms were observed in the sick both as apparent results of drug action and as probable cures, it is also true that most provers

have allowed themselves to record as effects of drugs taken for experiment, symptoms which would have arisen spontaneously or which were suggestions of a mind

watching for such effects. There is no doubt that many if not most symptoms have been observed in only one or two persons as the effect of the drug and that many of

these would fail confirmation by repeated experiment. But after all these allowances have been made there remains a good and true pathogenesis sufficient for a working Materia Medica and capable of justifying itself by unfailing results when put to the test of homoeopathic therapeutics. Numerous provings each consisting of but a single observation even the result of but a single dose appeal to our knowledge of the effects of analogous drugs as genuine; they must be utilized, their symptoms guide us unerringly to the saving of life and they cannot be discarded.”

In the short reproving of Aconite ferox, few symptoms that have already been proved by previous provings have been found in our provings too. Many new symptoms

include sustained hypertensive state lasting for 3 days in provers who previously were not hypertensives and Partial Right Bundle Branch Block which reverted back to normalcy in a week’s time.


[John Henry Clarke] 1900

Tincture of root.


Burning pains. Cheyne-Stokes breathing. Chill. dyspnoea. Gastralgia. Neuralgia. Numbness.


 *A. *ferox was proved by Dworzack, who also proved *Aconitine. The *Ferox developed burning pains in greater intensity than the alkaloid, more intense mental activity followed by greater depression. The *Aconite note of unendurability of suffering was marked. Anxiety and fear of suffocation from paralysis of respiratory muscles, obliged to breathe half-sitting up with head resting on palms of hands. Cold drinks better, sitting up better, warm food worse, coffee better.


DD.: Curare and Phos. (respiratory paralysis, Cheyne-Stokes breathing).

Mind: Very active, sequence of ideas rapid, talked constantly, remembered easily the minutest circumstances of his former experiment, compared them with present one,

and readily drew conclusions (6 h.).

In intervals of relief from distressing symptoms laughed and joked about his very comical condition, but when the dyspnoea, anxiety, etc., returned, he could not seem to endure them, and abused heartily Aconite and toxicology in general (4 to 6 h.) Incapable of any mental work, even the simplest addition, comprehension and understanding confused (2nd day).

Mouth: Tongue almost insensible, feels like a piece of raw leather in month (6 h.).Tongue covered with a thick yellowish-white fur. Violent burning in mouth (after 2 minutes), renewed by eating (2nd day),

> drinking cold water.

Throat: Violent burning in pharynx.

Stomach: Pressure in stomach with pain. Warmth in stomach. Violent drawing pain in region of stomach and sacral region, soon spreading over whole abdomen, < pressure on epigastrium. Pressing on stomach =, internal, dull pressing pain.

Abdomen: Rumbling in bowels (5 m.), constant gurgling (4 h.).

Stool: Two half-watery, dark, not copious Stool (2nd day).

Urinary organs: Frequent and copious evacuations of urine.

Respiratory organs: dyspnoea increased to such a degree that he was obliged to breathe half-sitting up, with head resting on palms of hands, constantly feared suffocation from respiratory paralysis.

Limbs: Gait tottering, remarkable weakness in lower extremities, especially right.

Generalities: Formication spread over whole body, least noticeable on parts that had been cold, < or excited by change of temperature or motion. Having changed from one nerve to another, reached its greatest severity from 19 to 19.30 h. It caused a painful unrest so that he could not possibly lie quietly more than a few minutes. Getting up set up all the train of symptoms, which were > immediately

on lying down. Benumbed sensation, as if he had on gloves, on pinching cheeks no pain felt, seemed to walk on woollen carpets (2nd, 3rd, and 4th day).

Sleep: Sleeplessness. On waking, violent burning in mouth and throat, warmth in stomach, dull sensation in head.

Fever: Icy coldness of body (4 h.), objective and subjective, no amount of wraps and external warmth relieved. Desire to get warm drove him to get out of bed and sit near stove. Tottered to stove and warmth was pleasant, but vertigo, trembling, oppression, and nausea ensued and compelled him to return to bed. This experience was repeated. Fierce heat (calor mordax) on forehead, cheek, and hands, with sensation as if numerous glowing hot wires were stuck into him, better by perspiration (4 to 6 h.).
