In Malawi in April 2012 with students and others working in the homeopathy clinic we were helping in. I entitled the proving “Enough to Survive, not to thrive.”

Great hunger, with weakness. Increased salivation, with sour, bitter taste. Much spitting. Sores inside and outside the mouth. Nausea and vomiting, churning in stomach, thirst, hunger, feeling about to vomit with increased saliva. Diarrhea. Pain in the feet, ext. up and down, burning in the feet, staggering, not being in control, heavy of legs, sensation of paralysis. Weakness felt in feet ext. up the leg.

Dreams: danger, knives, threats, death, killing, fighting, fear, worry.

Weakness, aching of body.

The symptoms of the proving seems to fit the psoric miasm - the feeling of lack, of hunger, constant effort merely to survive. The great hunger felt may also reveal its need in the opposite, of no hunger at all and especially the inability to eat cassava.

Its affinity for the whole gastro intestinal tract and also the nervous system may make it applicable in cases of AIDS, especially when cassava can no longer be eaten +/o. when sores are found in the mouth, along with weakness of the whole system. (Often seen in cases of SLIM that people can no longer eat their staple food, which is often cassava. It is no longer digestible but there is no other option for most people).

It is interesting to note the relationship between one of the main crops used in Africa (originally imported from South America, along with maize and sweet potatoes) and the predominant miasm and experience of many millions of people.

Heimat: Brasilien, Paraguay.

Inhaltsstoffe: Knolle: etwa ein Drittel Kohlenhydrate, 1% Protein, 0,2 bis 0,3 Prozent Fett, Blausäureglykosid Linamarin, Vitamin C.

Beschreibung: meist nur als extrem harte große und spindelförmige Wurzel bekannt, aus der beim Anschneiden weißer Milchsaft perlt.

Die mit einer erdfarbenen, leicht runzeligen Haut überzogene, im rohen Zustand giftige Wurzel liegt häufig in asiatischen oder afrikanischen Lebensmittelläden und kann ein Gewicht bis zu fünf Kilogramm auf die Waage bringen.

Die Pflanze, die diese harten Knollen als Speicherorgan in der Erde ausbildet, wächst in tropischen Regionen als mehrjähriger, bis zu drei Meter hoher Halbstrauch. Die großen Blätter sind geteilt und sehen wie grüne Hände mit vielen langen Fingern aus. Am Strauch wachsen männliche und weibliche Blüten. In Rispen sind jeweils etwa 200 männliche und 20 weibliche Blüten zusammengefasst, die ungefähr fünf Tage lang blühen. Zuerst gehen die weiblichen, dann die männlichen Blüten auf. Aus den weißen bis grünen, eher unscheinbaren Blüten entwickeln sich runde Kapselfrüchte, die mit einem Knall aufspringen, sobald sie reif sind, und dabei die Samen herausschleudern. Für die Vermehrung reicht es, abgetrennte Stängel in die Erde zu stecken.

Verwendung: Maniokwurzel enthält doppelt so viel Stärke wie Kartoffeln. In ihren Ursprungsländern ist sie ein wichtiger Bestandteil der täglichen Ernährung, aus dem die Brasilianer zum Beispiel Beijú, einen Kuchen, Farofa, geröstetes Maniokmehl als Beilage, oder das Getränk Tarubá herstellen. Die Peruaner lieben Yucca à la Huancaína, ein scharfes Gericht mit Maniok und Mais. Aus Maniok lässt sich ein Bier brauen, und ausgebackene Maniokscheiben werden in Südamerika wie Chips in Tüten verkauft.

Getrocknet und gemahlen ergibt die Wurzel die so genannte Tapiokastärke, eine nahezu geschmacksneutrale Stärke, die in Form kleiner Kügelchen (Sago) oder von Fladen in den Handel kommt. Besonders die westafrikanische und südostasiatische Küche verwendet die eingeweichten Sagokügelchen, um damit Süßspeisen zu binden. Die Brasilianer machen daraus eine Art Eierpfannkuchen, den sie mit Butter, Kokosmilch und Käse essen.

Die Futtermittelindustrie setzt Tapioka als Kohlenhydratlieferant ein, der gleichzeitig Futterpellets in Form hält.

Die Volksmedizin der Ursprungsländer nutzt frische Maniokwurzel bei Geschwüren und Verbrennungen.

Wissenswertes: Die Ureinwohner Südamerikas schätzten Maniok als wichtigstes Nahrungsmittel, von dem sie zahlreiche Sorten züchteten. In Nordostperu kennt man zum Beispiel mehr als hundert ungiftige Maniok-Sorten, die allerdings anfällig für Fressfeinde sind. Die Wildform ist indes nicht mehr bekannt, was auf die lange Geschichte des Manioks mit dem Menschen deutet.

Maniok ist in vielen Mythen Südamerikas erwähnt. In den Erzählungen der Shuar, Indianern im ecuadorianischen Amazonasgebiet, sorgt die Herrin der Nahrung, Núnkui, dafür, dass die Feldfrüchte üppig gedeihen. Um diese Erdgöttin anzurufen, singen die Frauen auf dem Feld Lieder für sie oder gehen nachts auf das Feld, um mit der nachtaktiven Núnkui Kontakt aufzunehmen.

Niemand sonst darf nachts das Feld betreten, weil dann die Göttin in Zorn gerät und der Maniok den Menschen das Blut aussaugt. Die Frauen nutzen diesen Zorn wiederum als Schutz für ihr Haus, das traditionell von Feldern umgeben ist. Ein Einbrecher müsste in der Nacht diese Felder durchqueren.

Die Indianer Zentralbrasiliens sahen im Sternbild Orion ein großes Gestell, auf dem Maniok getrocknet wird. Roh ist die Maniokwurzel wegen des Inhaltsstoffes Linamarin stark giftig und für Fressfeinde ungenießbar! Die Pflanze sammelt dieses

cyanartige Glykosid in den so genannten Vakuolen, membranbegrenzten, blasenförmigen Speicherräumen in den Zellen. Wenn die Wurzeln und damit die Zellen verletzt werden, tritt Linamarin aus der Vakuole aus. Enzyme im Zellraum setzen es in zwei Schritten zur giftigen Blausäure um, die bei Genuss zu Bewegungsstörungen und Sehschwäche führen. Erhitzen verflüchtigt die Blausäure vollständig, die Wurzel wird essbar.

Für die Mehlgewinnung aus den Maniokwurzeln schälen die Ureinwohner Brasiliens traditionell die Knollen, zerreiben und stampfen sie und weichen sie anschließend ein, um das giftige Linamarin auszuwaschen. Nach mehreren Tagen füllen sie die Masse in ein

so genanntes Tipití, ein konisches Gefäß aus Palmblättern, das unten offen ist. Das Wasser fließt durch die Öffnung ab, zurück bleibt die entwässerte und entgiftete Wurzelmasse, die in der Sonne oder in Öfen fertig getrocknet wird. Das dabei entstehende Maniokmehl vertragen gerade Menschen mit einer Allergie gegen Weizen oder andere Getreide sehr gut.

Maniok kann wegen seines geringen Eiweißgehalts zu Mangelernährung führen, wenn er nicht durch proteinreiche Nahrung ergänzt wird. Brasilianer essen die eiweißreichen Maniokblätter zur Knolle, um einem Mangel vorzubeugen. Erstaunlich ist die Entdeckung, dass Völker in Malariagebieten den Maniok weniger sorgfältig auswaschen, sodass giftiges Linamarin im Mehl zurückbleibt und sich Cyanide im Blut der Konsumenten ansammeln. Cyanide hemmen den Sauerstofftransport im Blut und zahlreiche Enzyme der Atmungskette. Zusammen mit dem Eiweißmangel, der durch einseitige Maniokernährung entsteht, wird die Entwicklung von Malariaplasmodien im Blut gehemmt.

Maniokmehl spielte eine wichtige Rolle bei der Ausbreitung der Portugiesen in Brasilien. Nur mithilfe des lang haltbaren Mehls waren die langen Expeditionen ins das Landesinnere möglich.

Von Südamerika über Portugal gelang Maniok nach Afrika, wo die stärkehaltige Knolle heute das Grundnahrungsmittel von 500 Millionen Afrikanern ist. In den 1970ern bedrohte eine aus Südamerika eingeschleppte Schmierlaus die Maniokbestände Afrikas. Mithilfe von Wespen als natürliche Fraßfeinde konnte ein vom Schweizer Wissenschaftler Rudolf Herren geleitetes Forschungsteam die Laus erfolgreich bekämpfen und damit Hungerkatastrophen verhindern.

Die gewaschene, fein vermahlene Tapiokastärke kann Ausscheidungsprodukte der Haut absorbieren. Sie ist in Dr. Hauschka Melissen Tagescreme, Abdeckstift und Translucent Face Powder loose enthalten sowie in Dr. Hauschka Med Pflege Lotion Mittagsblume.

Cassava is an interesting food. It is well suited to subsistence life. It grows easily, even in drought and in bad soil. It requires no fertilizer and can be replanted year after year. It gives excellent carbohydrate energy and is a very efficient crop to grow, given limited resources and land. However, it offers virtually no protein at all. What it does offer is balanced in amino acids but you can barely survive on it. To be healthy, alternative forms of protein have to be found. But it fills you up like nothing else. It satiates hunger, even the idea of hunger. It seems to tap into the miasmatic memory of hunger. Many Africans love it and eating large amounts is central to their lives. Without it, they don’t feel full. I have seen people eat volumes of rice but still say they don’t feel satisfied until they have had their cassava; but it is hard to digest and is an acquired taste. In fact, it tastes of nothing in particular, its effect more in the solid, satisfying full feeling one has on eating it. The proportion of cassava (carbohydrate) to protein (fish, meat, beans) is much greater than the portions we eat in the West. This suits a subsistence lifestyle where digging daily for survival is the main occupation and physical labor a daily chore. Millions of subsistence farmer in Africa simply live off what they grow and supplement this with small amounts of animal product and vegetables, if they can afford it. But for many people, life is lived on the margins of hunger. There is never enough it seems (although in reality, even in famine times, food is often around. It just doesn’t get to those who need it. There is nearly always food). There is often tension around food and where it will come from. If you organize an event, or meeting, the first question often is, what are we eating?

Proving

Enough to Survive but not to Thrive: A Proving of Cassava

Cassava is one the most popular staple foods in the African continent. Everybody grows it and it is essential for the nutritional well being of many of the poorest people in the region, who often have no choice but to eat it. This proving was carried out at the Chintheche Homeopathy Clinic and AIDS Project, in Chintcheche, Malawi. Around twenty people participated, all local people connected to the clinic, but reports were obtained from only sixteen people. Provers comprised a 50-50 mix of men and women, ranging in age from twenty to forty. A piece of cassava root and some cassava leaves were mixed together, using maize flour instead of lactose as a medium.

Enough to Survive but not to Thrive: A Proving of Cassava

Cassava Proving: March 16, 2012

Chintheche, Malawi

The intention to prove cassava is based on the fact that it is one the most popular staple foods in the African continent. Everybody grows it and it is essential for the nutritional wellbeing of many of the poorest people in the region, who often have no choice but to eat it. However, most people  love it and are content to eat it, along with maize twice a day.

Its value is that it grows very easily in most regions. You simply replant stems of last year’s harvest and it grows. It is quite drought resistant and doesn’t need fertilizer.

However, although it gives a great sense of satiety after eating, and for poor people who experience hunger, a great sense of relief from actual hunger or the memory of it, its nutritional value is poor.

Both the root and leaves are eaten, often together. The leaves have more protein than the roots.

Protocol

The proving was carried out at the Chintheche Homeopathy Clinic and AIDS Project, in Chintcheche, Malawi. Around twenty people participated, all local people connected to the clinic, but reports were  obtained of only sixteen people. There was approximately a 50-50 mix of men and women, from ages of twenty to forty. A piece of cassava root and some cassava leaves were mixed together, using maize flour instead of lactose as a medium. They were all mixed together in a traditional mortar and pestle and the mixture was made into a 3c potency using the traditional Hahnemannian method of trituration. From the 3c mixture, additional potencies to a 30c were made using dilution and succession. During the initial trituration, all the participants sat in a circle, except for when they were dancing around the circle in a traditional African way. All participants were initially given a 6c potency of the remedy. Two of the provers were subsequently given a 30c potency.

Botany

Cassava’s latin name is Manihot esculenta and is also known as yucca, mogo, mandioca and kamoteng kahoy.  In a food form, it is commonly called fufu, garri or nsima. Each country has its own name. It is a member of the Euphorbiaceae family, in which other homeopathic remedies are found, such as Croton tiglium, Hura brasiliensis, Ricus communis and Jatropha.

 

Background Thoughts

    Cassava is the perfect food for subsistence cultures in Africa. It supplies the bare necessities for life and fills you up. It satisfies a person’s hunger. It is a good famine reserve as it has a wide growing schedule and is adaptable to drought and unpredictable weather. It is reliable.

    It therefore relieves hunger in the most immediate way. It gives respite to the millions who don’t get enough to eat each day (1/4 of Sub-saharan Africa) and palliates the collective experience of hunger in the continent.

    But it doesn’t give enough to live well. It is just enough, and also takes quite a lot of effort to farm. It is not easy.

    It perfectly suits the subsistence farming culture of much of Africa, but such a mono mania for cassava sustains and reflects the lack of variety and adaptability in a culture.

    It doesn’t let a society leave the “here and now” of survival and the desire for immediate satiety – the full belly.

Nutrition

Cassava root is a poor source of protein. Despite the very low quantity, the quality of cassava root protein is fairly good in terms of essential amino acids. Methionine, cysteine and cystine are, however, limiting amino acids in cassava root.

Cassava is a highly productive crop in terms of food calories produced per unit land area per unit of time, significantly higher than other staple crops. Cassava can produce food calories at rates exceeding 250,000 cal/hectare/day compared with 176,000 for rice, 110,000 for wheat, and 200,000 for maize.

No continent depends as much on root and tuber crops in feeding its population as does Africa. In the humid and subhumid areas of tropical Africa, it is either a primary staple food or a secondary co-staple. In Ghana for example, cassava and yams occupy an important position in the agricultural economy, and contribute about 46% of the agricultural gross domestic product. Cassava accounts for a daily caloric intake of 30% in Ghana, and is grown by nearly every farming family.

The importance of cassava to many Africans is epitomised in the Ewe language (a language spoken in Ghana, Togo and Benin) name for the plant, agbeli, meaning "there is life". The price of cassava has risen significantly in the last half decade, and lower-income people have turned to other carbohydrate-rich foods, such as rice.

Toxicity of Cassava

Cassava contains anti-nutrition factors and toxins. It must be properly prepared before consumption. Improper preparation of cassava can leave enough residual cyanide to cause acute cyanide intoxication and goiters and may even cause ataxia or partial paralysis

The so-called sweet (actually not bitter) cultivars can produce as little as 20 milligrams of cyanide (CN) per kilogram of fresh roots, whereas bitter ones may produce more than 50 times as much

(1 g/kg). Cassavas grown during drought are especially high in these toxins. A dose of 40 mg of pure cassava cyanogenic glucoside is sufficient to kill a cow.

It has also been linked to tropical calcific pancreatitis in humans, leading to chronic pancreatitis. Symptoms of acute cyanide intoxication appear four or more hours after ingesting raw or poorly processed cassava: vertigo, vomiting, and collapse. In some cases, death may result within one or two hours.

Chronic, low-level cyanide exposure is associated with the development of goiter and with tropical ataxic neuropathy, a nerve-damaging disorder that renders a person unsteady and uncoordinated. Severe cyanide poisoning, particularly during famines, is associated with outbreaks of a debilitating, irreversible paralytic disorder called konzo and, in some cases, death.

Proving comments

The symptoms of the proving has to fit the psoric miasm. The feeling of lack, of hunger, of constant effort merely to survive.

The great hunger felt may also reveal its need in the opposite, of no hunger at all and especially the inability to eat cassava.

Its affinity for the whole gastro intestinal tract and also the nervous system may make it applicable in cases of AIDS, especially when cassava can no longer be eaten and/or when sores are found

in the mouth, along with weakness of the whole system.
