The red skin of fly agaric has special medicinal significance, for we can see the red colouring as part of the struggle against astral influences. Red counteracts excessive astralisation.

Damage to and deterioration of the most peripheral, membranous parts of the brain due to wrong astral influences as is the case with meningitic irritation syndromes, meningitis and its sequels/vitalization and regeneration.

The skin of fly agaric with the intense red colour which belongs to this part of the plant only thus has special medicinal significance, for we can see the red colouring as part of the struggle against astral influences.

Initially we may therefore speak of the following area of use for Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra: damage to and deterioration of the most peripheral, membranous parts of the brain due to  wrong astral influences as is the case with meningitic irritation syndromes, meningitis and its sequels. Use of red skin of fly agaric encourages vitalization and regeneration of damaged nerve tissue. Exhibition is by injection via the rhythmical organism, as this is particularly appropriate for restoring harmony between astral body and ether body.

Historically, the sole use of the red fly agaric skin rather than of the whole fungus does not go back directly to R.S.

It does, however, arise quite naturally if we study his words. Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra was first mentioned as a preparation in the 10th edition of the Weleda List in 1968. An undated note by Dr Karl Nunhoefer(1904 – 1988) refers to it as

a “first-class medicament for meningeal irritation and the sequels of meningitis if given exclusively in the 30x.”

R.S.: Fungi are old “plants” in evolutionary sense. Special affecting the head organism. “For anything pathological in the

head we must look for medicines a long way back in the evolution of the natural world, that is, something which reminds us

of early natural processes, for instance among the fungi. Their present-day imperfect configuration as plant is, as it were, recapitulating past plant development. Or we may look to the algae and lichens or to the roots of perfect plants, roots being the part remaining from earliest times”.

Elsewhere R.S. said “Fungi relate closely to all problems that are like headaches. Fungi relate (soul) quality of thinking

a lot about things, living in the psyche in a way that one does not need much from the outside world but pumps (sucks?) everything out of oneself.

One will find that this inner quality which points in essence to the fungi, relates very closely to all problems that have headache character. This will guide us to relationships between fungi and headache type conditions”.

Poisonous fungi can make nerve tissue capable of regeneration. They are differentiated into those with warty caps like Amanita bulbosis (= Agaricus bulbosis) which act more in the direction of the inner parts of nerve tissue.

R.S.: poisonous fungi altogether have the ability to regenerate the ability of tissues to regenerate.

Fungi with warty caps should be used more for actions towards periphery. Fungi with smooth caps could also be used for the

inner part of the brain.

Fungi develop when the cosmic astrality influencing earth’s forces does not exhaust itself in developing the flowers of plants above ground level but penetrates further to just above soil level.

Algae and Fungi are the plants which are wholly immersed in the interactions between air and watery element. The peculiarity

is that these plants have a powerful affinity to Sulphur, which is present everywhere in small amounts - in the watery element

and also in the element air. These plants are suitable for restoring harmony between the astral body and the ether body.

A relatively high potency acts on the neurosensory system.

The skin of fly agaric with the intense red colour which belongs to this part of the plant only thus has special medicinal

significance, for we can see the red colouring as part of the struggle against astral influences.

Initially we may therefore speak of the following area of use for Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra: damage to and deterioration of the most peripheral, membranous parts of the brain due to  wrong astral influences as is the case with meningitic irritation syndromes, meningitis and its sequels. Use of red skin of fly agaric encourages vitalization and regeneration of damaged nerve tissue.

Nach eine längere Krankheit (über Monate) habe ich Augen flimmern, und meine Hände gehorchen teilweise nicht mehr.  Eine Physiotherapeutin suggeriert, es könnte Parkinson sein.

Mir wird geraten Orthomol Immun zu nehmen.

Ich nehme abends einen Tropfen Agaricus cutis rubra.

Sofort fühle ich mich stärker und klarer. Ich schlafe gut.

Nächste morgen nach dem Frühstück Brechreiz.

Die nächste 2 Tagen gibt es ein hin und her, bis ich anfange es 3x täglich einzunehmen. Es lindert eigentlich alle Beschwerden.

Dann wird 3x einnehmen zu viel. Ich nehme es nur noch morgens ein.

Ich potenziere eine Ampulle (= 1 ml) auf 25 ml Wasser und Alkohol. Davon nehme ich einen Tropfen täglich.

Nach 2 Wochen höre ich mit der Einnahme auf, ich habe einen ganzen Tag nicht an meinen Magen gedacht. Ein Wunder.

Note

Historically, the sole use of the red fly agaric skin rather than of the whole fungus does not go back directly to Rudolf Steiner. It does, however, arise quite naturally if we study his words.

Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra was first mentioned as a preparation in the 10th edition of the Weleda List in 1968.

An undated note by Dr Karl Nunhoefer (1904 – 1988) refers to it as a “first-class medicament for meningeal irritation and the sequels of meningitis if given exclusively in the 30x.”

Abstract

A well-proven medicament made from the red skin of fly agaricus

References to fungi made by R. Steiner cast light on the rationale for its clinical use based on the anthroposophical view of the human being. Use in the treatment of meningeal signs

and sequels of meningitis is illustrated by case records.

Keywords:

Fly agaric:

Meningitis

Meningeal signs

Vital meningitis

Neural tissue

Amanita muscaria fungi with warty caps should be used more for actions towards the periphery, those with smooth caps could also be used for the inner part ... The Agaricus bulbosus injections resulted in marked improvement in the ability to walk and powers of speech in the autumn”.

The next two case histories demonstrate this important distinction which is so important in practice.

A case of brain fever (probably meningitis or meningoencephalitis) with sequels was reported in R. Steiner and I. Wegman’s first Letter to Physicians. The advice was to give fly agaric injections

in the 30x, and ensure that a confident, cheerful mood prevailed after the injection.

Fly agaric (warty cap) was suggested because the action was to be on neural tissues in the brain that were more to the outside, peripheral.

In case record No, 69 in the Degenaar collection, Rudolf Steiner suggested treating a patient with Parkinson’s disease which had followed epidemic encephalitis, with injections of Agaricus

 bulbosus (smooth cap), as strong as possible. In this case, the aim was regeneration of more centrally located brain tissue.

To help us understand the preparation Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra, we must once more consider the development of fungi, as Rudolf Steiner described it in “Anthroposophical Spiritual Science and Medical Therapy”.

Fungi develop where the cosmic astrality influencing earth’s forces does not exhaust itself in developing the flowers of plants above ground level but penetrates further, to just above soil level.

Fungi then result. Development of the colour red is a counter action to this excessive astralization. ‘Wherever reddening occurs in a natural process, we have powerful action against astralization”.

The skin of fly agaric with the intense red colour which belongs to this part of the plant only thus has special medicinal significance, for we can see the red colouring as part of the struggle against astral influences.

Initially we may therefore speak of the following area of use for Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra: damage to and deterioration of the most peripheral, membranous parts of the brain due to wrong astral influences as is the case with meningitic irritation syndromes, meningitis and its sequels. Use of red skin of fly agaric encourages vitalization and regeneration of damaged nerve tissue. Exhibition is by injection via the rhythmical organism, as this is particularly appropriate for restoring harmony between astral body and ether body.

“Algae and fungi are the plants which are wholly immersed in the interactions between air and watery element. The peculiarity is that these plants have a powerful affinity to the sulphur which is today present everywhere in small amounts—in the watery element and also in air. This means that these plants, if brought into the rhythmical organism, are particularly suitable for restoring harmony between the astral body and the ether body.”

Exhibition of a relatively high potency (30x) directs the action mainly to the neurosensory system.

Case histories relating to Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra 30x

Girl age 12 VThe girl was brought to the practice because of a rapidly rising temperature and severe headache. The problem had started two days earlier, with persistent cough going so far as making her vomit. Clinical examination:

showed normal throat, auscultation of the lungs also n.a.d. The girl was listless in general, with communication distinctly slowed down. She repeatedly stressed the violent headache located in the

back of the neck. Neurological examination showed that the chin could not be lowed down to the sternum, and in the absence of inflammatory parameters in laboratory tests which was considered

to be meningism with virus infection.

A single dose of Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra 30x was given by injection and the girl kept in the practice for 3 hours’ observation. After about two hours, the headache grew less and the

temperature went down.

The girl was distinctly more lively and asked for something to eat and to drink.

After the three hours the back of the neck was fully mobile again, with no sign of meningism. The patient was sent home with Silicea comp., 10 pilules t.d.s. The temperature continued to go

down and by the next day the patient was practically symptom-free.

 

The mother brought her 4-year-old to the practice because  he had been febrile, tired and lacking in energy for a day. He also had a headache which improved for a time following exhibition of Belladonna 6x but got much < again a few hours later. On examination the boy’s general condition was found to be poor, with the skin of his face reddened. He did respond and said he had

great pain in the whole of his head. Temperature 40º C. Final stage of meningism (stiff neck). Brudzinski’s sign positive.

Clinically no focus of infection could be found.

The diagnosis was virus infection with meningeal irritation. One ampoule each of Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra 30x and Quartz 30 were injected and the boy was admitted to hospital for further observation. Two hours later his temperature was down and he showed no sign of meningism; discharge on the same day.

Check-up by family physician the next day showed n.a.d.

 

The child was brought by his mother because of acute pyrexia and frontal headache. His general condition was distinctly poor.

Larynx reddened, tonsils enlarged, with pustules and whitish coating. Final stage of meningism with neck pain. Eardrums and auscultation of lungs showed n.a.d.

 

Virus infection with tonsillitis and meningeal irritation syndrome was diagnosed and one ampoule of Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra 30x given by s.c. injection.

He was also given one ampoule of Argentum nitricum 20x by mouth.

The headache improved within an hour with this treatment and the temperature was going down. The tonsillitis was then successfully treated with Apis/Belladonna 6x/6 pilules and

Glycerinum comp. as a gargle.

The mother came and spoke to the physician as her daughter had developed an acute high temperature, headache and stiff neck. A domiciliary visit showed the girl to be somnolent, with meningis. Ten minutes afters.c. injection of one ampoule of Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra 30x together with one ampoule of Argentum 30x in the high meningism was no longer in evidence.

Her mind was getting clearer and her responses were livelier. Her mother watched her through the night, ready to telephone if necessary. The next morning she said that the headache and temperature had gone and the child was able to bend her head down to her chest without problem. A remaining dry cough was treated with Infludoron®. Three days later the temperature rose to 39.6 ºC again, diarrhoea, mild headache, general condition continuing to be good. Another two days later otitis media, treated by giving Pulsatilla and Levisticum in addition. The girl continued in good health after this and was only seen in the practice again five months later, but for another reason.

The patient had bacterial meningitis which had developed from sinusitis. In spite of the usual conventional medical treatment she had suffered severe headache for days. One ampoule of Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra 30x was injected between the shoulder blades on the 4th day, with rapid improvement within 8 hours (< pain and in alertness).

 

The patient had had meningitis stage 2. From her 20th year, severe migraines had been a recurrent problem. At age 28, erythema migrans and 6 months later neuroborreliosis with burning pain in the extremities, visual problems and paraesthesia. She had had antibiotics for 3 months but there were residual problems. Following a change of address and a taking up a new job these grew worse, (clouding of consciousness and blocks in thinking). The patient was afraid that the borreliosis might be reactivated and reacted with depression. She had refused further antibiotics.

The patient came to see me for a first consultation at this time. She complained of dysaesthesia in hands and feet, a clouded mind, feeling of being absent, and dreamlike states affecting her concentration and performance at work. She was given Scorodite 30x, one ampoule s.c. 3x a week and Agaricus muscarius 6x combined with Arnica planta tota 30x, one ampoule each s.c. 3x a week, as well as Ledum palustre 3x and Stibium 6x by mouth. Symptoms did not satisfactorily improve over the next two weeks and treatment was therefore modified. In view of past meningitis, Agaricus

muscarius 6x was replaced with Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra 30x, and the Scorodite with Dyscrasite 20x.

The symptoms improved within a week after this change.

All that remained were circumscribed paraesthesias. The feeling of numbness had also decreased greatly; all that remained was great tiredness. Although the mind was still slightly clouded, the patient was resuming work as a journalist. Two months later, the Dyscrasite was discontinued and injections reduced to Agaricus muscarius, Cutis  rubra 30x 2x a week for a total of six months.

 

Discussion of the case histories

Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra 30 D was used to treat acute meningeal irritation syndrome and postmeningitic symptoms. It was always given by injection, which was not a problem even with children. Improvement was very rapid if not instant in every case, which is typical of this medicine. The main indication were R. Steiner’s words in Degenaar Case History No. 69: “Poisonous fungi

can make [nerve] tissue capable of regeneration again.

Agaricus muscarius, and others with warty caps, to be used to act more towards the periphery ...” (3).

It served to counteract inflammatory degradation of the peripheral meninges.

In 3 out of 4 cases, the medicament was not used alone but together with another one (Quartz 30x, Argentum nitricum 20x, Argentum 30x). No such impressive improvement was, however, seen with Quartz or Argentum on their own in similar cases. Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra is therefore responsible for the effective action. Experience gained elsewhere with Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra 30x given on its own substantiate this.

In the last case history given, Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra was also used concurrently with another product (Dyscrasite) to treat postmeningitic state. The typical, rapid improvement must here, too, be ascribed primarily to Agaricus muscarius, Cutis rubra 30x.
