Agaricus muscarius Kind Anhang



Learning disability


Agaricus muscarius. D10 – D30 Dil. w/Glob (var. manufacturers), 5 drops/glob. 1x daily or single doses

The fly agaric mushroom has been used in many parts of the world as an intoxicant. The symptoms it evokes

are similar to those of ADHD. As a potentized remedy.

• tics associated with ADHD or resulting from treatment with stimulants

• risky, impulsive and erratic but essentially well-intentioned behavior

• these children wish to be helpful and good

• in fits of rage they can display tremendous strength

The anamnesis may reveal prior injury to nervous system (in this case Steiner attributed great therapeutic significance to Agaricus); clinically as well, these children give the impression of having a neurological inhibition deficit.

Tics, hyperactivity, mild impairments of the CNS


[Ursula Sommer]

Kinder sind zurückgeblieben, langsam (wie Barium), fühlen sich schwach und hängen an ihren Eltern.


Chorea (nach Strafe)/rolling the head, biting himself (meningitis).

[James Tyler Kent]

Child late in learning to talk and walk, combining the features of two remedies, Nat-m. “late learning to talk” and Calc.: “late learning to walk.”

[George Vithoulkas]

Slow in walking, talking and learning. Their mind seems to develop slowly, which is why they make mistakes in speaking and writing later. They have a bad memory.

They are also slow in comprehending and have difficulty in making decisions. They feel weak and are very attached to and dependent upon their parents. This is the

reason why they may develop chorea or convulsions if they have been badly offended or reprimanded by their parents or teachers.

These children are clumsy, awkward, timid and look a bit backwards. They are prone to redness of the nose and to chilblains in the ears with occasional twitchings

of the face. There is a tendency to convulsions. In meningitis these children roll their head and bite themselves or otherwise try to hurt themselves.

M. Tyler: describes the child with chorea in picturesque: "The child gets scolded for making faces; then it gets smacked for dropping and breaking cups and saucers;

then at last it dawns on the most unobservant that it is no case of original sin but St. Vitus Dance..."

[J. Metzger] Nervous excessive liveliness of children with mental and motoric restlessness, they laugh, sing, dance and run about in a boisterous manner... With their great

restlessness and fidgety nature these children become a real trial for their parent's patience. When playing they are wild, boisterous and incredibly agile; in spite of the talent they possess, they are poor achievers at school due to their flightiness. These children have no perseverance due to their mental and physical restlessness, they slip from

one thing to the next and and show no concentration whatsoever. Because of their fidgeting they are clumsy with their hands and drop things. When lying in bed they

move their bottom rhythmically or roll their head. Chorea.

I always found Agaricus the most reliable remedy. Agaricus children are frequently subject to bed-wetting (after lively play or excitement)".


Child whose development is arrested, and who refuses to study. They are unable to concentrate while learning, and have an aversion to mental work. The internal restlessness gives them the title of being 'hyper-active'. As a teenager an Agaricus has bold plans. He tends to manage his father's bar at an early age and develops a craving for alcohol later. The red letter symptom to describe Agaricus is 'Internal Restlessness' (Homoeopathic Links, 1998a).
