Zu den sedierenden Herzmitteln gehören zahlreiche weiß oder weiß-rosa blühende Pflanzen. Der Farbton ist zur Behandlung psychosomatischer Beschwerden besonders geeignet,
vor allem wenn seelische Probleme mit Herzbeschwerden einhergehen. Hierzu gehören beispielsweise Crataegus oxyacantha Ø (Weißdorn; Universalmittel), Leonurus cardiaca Ø
(Herzgespann; Unruhe bei gleichzeitigem Schwächegefühl), Lycopus europaeus Ø (Wolfstrapp; Schilddrüsenleiden, Herzunruhe, Hypertonie), Magnolia grandiflora D1/D4
(Magnolie; Krämpfe, aussetzender Herzschlag/-beklemmung), Melissa officinalis Ø (Melisse; Schilddrüsenleiden, Tachycardie), Rosa centifolia D2 / Rosa damascena Ø (Rose;
Psychotherapie, Libidoprobleme), Valeriana officinalis Ø (Baldrian; Herzunruhe, Schlafstörungen), Verbena officinalis Ø (Eisenkraut; enthält schilddrüsenregulierende Wirkstoffe).
Einige Mittel blühen in der Farbe des Herzens, z.B. Cactus grandiflorus (Königin der Nacht), Coffea arabica (Kaffee), Convallaria majalis (Maiglöckchen), Nicotiana tabacum (Tabak),
Nerium oleander (Oleander) oder Rauwolfia serpentina (Schlangenwurzel).
The objectives of the following research study were to:
1. Conduct a randomised, double blind, placebo controlled study in order to determine the sphere of action of the imponderable remedy Pink 30CH on healthy volunteers who recorded
the signs and symptoms produced in order
to determine the substances potential usefulness in a future clinical setting according to the Law of Similars.
2. Determine and highlight the commonalities shared between the symptoms and themes produced by remedy Pink 30CH and the other selected imponderable remedies.
In the homoeopathic drug proving of remedy Pink 30CH, provers were uninformed to both the nature of the substance as well as to the potency selected and used for proving purposes.
Neither the provers nor the research investigator had any knowledge of who received the verum or the placebo until the end of the proving.
Thirty (30) provers were selected after meeting the inclusion criteria of which thirty percent (30%) of the subjects received placebo in a randomised fashion. Verum and placebo were
dispensed to the proving body in a set of 6 powders which were taken sublingually 3x daily or until any proving symptoms were experienced.
All provers were examined and made to record in their journals before, during and after the administration of the proving substance so as to serve as their own intra-individual controls.
At the end of the proving period all journals were then recalled and all proving data recorded was then collated and edited into a repertory and materia medica format, which was then
used to formulate a homoeopathic drug picture of the remedy that could be used in future clinical settings.
The homoeopathic drug picture thus derived was then analysed with the aim of highlighting the important themes that were elicited during the proving. These symptoms and themes
were then related and compared to 7 other imponderable: remedies:
Magnetis Polus Arcticus (North pole of the magnet);
Magnetis Polus Australis (South pole of the magnet);
Magnetis poli ambo (M-ambo.) = beide Magnetische Polen
Radium bromatum (Radium bromide);
Remedy Pink 30CH thus clearly produced observable signs and symptoms in healthy individuals as was hypothesised, as a wide variety of symptoms covering thirty-three (33) sections
of the materia medica were obtained. It was further hypothesised that the group analysis of the imponderabilia would illustrate the themes and symptoms common to these remedies,
which will in turn assist in the future understanding and application of these remedies in homoeopathic practice.
This was also verified as the group analysis of these imponderable remedies revealed the following set of thematic expressions:
Irritability, impatience, anger
Psychotic, changeable mood
Heaviness, morose, sadness
PROVING SUBSTANCE: FOCUSED PINK LIGHT
The research investigator has decided to refrain from reproducing remedy Pink 30CH as the precise method of its manufacture could not be located and obtained. All references to the manufacturing process of these colour remedies in the published work ‘The Homoeopathic Colour Remedies’ by Ambika Wauters (1999), have also been found to be too vague and thus unusable for a precise reproduction of remedy Pink 30CH.
Wauters states that „auspicious days“, days of maximum and minimum light, such as the winter – and summer solstices were chosen on which to make the various colour remedies. No indication
is given however on which of the two solstices remedy Pink was prepared.
According to Wauters (1999:19) the remedy was originally produced by exposing glass beakers of distilled water to a light source; in this case and unlike for the other respective colour remedies,
pink filters could not be located – instead, Wauters wrapped the glass beakers of distilled water in pink silk fabric as a source of colour and exposed it to sunlight. Thereafter each glass beaker
was then rested upon small glass mirrors in order to better reflect, and thereby maximize, the pink coloured light vibrating through the distilled water in the glass beaker.
According to Wauters (1999:20) this now considered „colour impregnated“ distilled water was then preserved in alcohol and officially potentised in a homoeopathic fashion by John Morgan and
his staff at the Helios Homoeopathic Pharmacy in 1992. Remedy Pink 30CH was thus purchased in a medicating potency form (in 96% alcohol) from Helios Homoeopathic Pharmacy and used
as the proving substance.

Affinity to the nervous system. In the mental/emotional sphere there were periods of increased sensitivity, heightened emotions, marked irritability, irresolution and the appearance of increased energy which was, at times, also described as a disorganized and uncontrollable energy. This state of instability then became even more apparent when the provers began to over-react in situations that normally would not warrant such behaviour, which included anger, rage, aggression, violence and profuse swearing. The moods of the provers were also described as being very changeable during the proving which also encompasses this state of instability. The end result of this over-excitable nervous and emotional system was a total exhaustion and physical weariness. At this point provers became indifferent and depressed which progressed to a level of despondency and complete hopelessness. It was during this time that provers began to display erratic behaviour – becoming snappishly aggressive, taciturn, averse to company and very temperamental.
On a more physical level – the state of instability was most noticeable in the form of vertigo which appeared as one of the very first symptoms during the proving itself. Other symptoms included a feeling of emptiness in the head,
stomach and which were not ameliorated by eating; a sensation of light-headedness; twitching in the eye; nausea aggravated by motion; uncontrollable and excessive urination and a heightened libido. Female provers also noticed erratic behaviour and changes in the menstrual cycles – with menses occurring too early, too late, shortened in duration and in some cases, menses being too scanty, too copious or being absent entirely. Pain in the knees; weakness in the hands, and swelling in the hands and feet were also documented, which in itself reflects the inability to perform an action as these afflicted regions were unstable.
Sleep was also largely affected with provers complaining of disturbances and difficulty in falling asleep. There were also dreams of driving recklessly and losing control, violence, indecent behaviour and of the teeth falling out – which in the researchers opinion encompasses the state of instability and the inability to maintain control either within a situation, or of a situation itself.
COMPARISON OF THE PINK PROVING SYMPTOMATOLOGY with proving of Wauters
Wauters states that in the provings done on Pink all provers had dreams associated with motherhood, mothers, pregnancy, giving birth or holding a baby and that these dreams about
„mother love“ provided a strong indication on how best to use this remedy. She further states that Pink made everyone feel well and that it did have a specific action on the physical
body in relation to various skin conditions i.e. dry eczema, acne and skin rashes (Wauters, 1999:3).
Unfortunately, none of these dream symptoms appeared during the re-proving of remedy Pink 30CH. In fact, many of the mental and emotional symptoms that were produced in this
study were also in stark contrast as to what was encountered in the version of Pink related by Wauters (1999:2-4).
The researcher suspects that these discrepancies exist because the „symptoms“ documented in ‘Homeopathic Colour Remedies’ by Wauters (1999) were in fact largely attributes and
associations ascribed to the colour pink rather than produced by the remedy itself. For instance, Wauters (1999:2-4) states that pink is associated with universal mother love and that
it pertains to purity and innocence; she further states that the colour pink represents positivity, love, joy and tenderness and that it is also associated with gentleness, sweetness and naiveté.
As can be seen, none of these characteristics are true proving symptoms but seem to be more esoteric connotations that have been applied to the colour itself (or to the „heart chakra“
that the colour pink is said to possess an affinity towards) (Wauters, 1999:65-67).
This is evident from the proving of Pink 30CH performed during this study in which symptoms such as anger, rage, violence, depression, despondency, lasciviousness and lassitude
were encountered – none of which appeared or - 208 - was commented on in the original „provings“ performed on remedy Pink. The researcher therefore feels that further re-provings
should thus be done on all of the remaining colour remedies in order to ascertain the proving effects of these substances according to proper Hahnemannian proving methodology.
DD.: Ign. Ph-ac. Puls. Lacs allgemein.
Ign. one of the most dramatic of remedy types encountered in homoeopathic practice (Vermeulen, 2004:714). In the mental and emotional spheres the Ign. state is characterized by
contradictory and alternating states; emotional outbursts which are very quickly controlled; spasmodic and erratic symptoms, and exaggeration (Vermeulen, 2004:712-714). There is
also much melancholia, sadness and tearfulness associated with this remedy (Vermeulen, 2000:802). Other features that bear a remarkable resemblance to the symptomatology of
remedy Pink 30CH include a „highly emotional“ disposition; a desire to be alone; irritability and „wildness at trifles“; moodiness; and an aversion to company with/without
quarrelsomeness (Vermeulen, 2000:802-803).
Puls.: another remedy that seems to bear some resemblance to remedy Pink 30CH. This remedy state is also characterized by a tearful and emotional disposition with highly
changeable, shifting symptoms (Vermeulen, 2004:09). Vermeulen (2004:09) states that the symptoms change in an erratic fashion and that the patient may appear mild and
pleasant one minute, and peevish and tearful the very next. There is also much irresolution, capriciousness, restlessness and weariness associated with Puls. (Vermeulen, 2000:1297)
as found in remedy Pink 30CH.
Ph-ac.: designated as a complementary remedy to Ign. (Sankaran, 2003:473; Vermeulen 2000:8), and as a remedy „followed well by“ Puls. during homoeopathic treatment (Sankaran, 2003:479; Vermeulen, 2000:1226). Thus it is evident that these 3 remedies are in fact related to each other, as well as to remedy Pink 30CH.
[Sankaran (2006:159)]the mental state of Ph-ac. is one of excessive sleepiness, brooding, indifference, aversion to business, hopelessness and despair – all of which was also encountered
during the proving of Pink 30CH. Vermeulen (2000:1220): listlessness, hysteria, apathy and an inclination to weep in this remedy. Sankaran (2006:159) further goes on to say that on the
physical sphere Ph-ac. characterized by much weakness, a lack of energy and that the individual has an increased disposition to lie down due to tremendous physical exhaustion.
in particular which bears the most similarities to Pink 30CH. In his proving of Lac leoninum, Sankaran (2004:153-166) states that the remedy produced symptoms and themes which included:
Anger with violent impulses and a desire to smash or break things
Malicious behaviour / Rage
Rude, loud and uncivil behaviour
Feelings of being attacked
Feelings of danger
Feelings of being offended
Restlessness with easy prostration
Physical weakness and sluggishness
All of above symptoms and themes are remarkably similar to those produced during the proving of remedy Pink 30CH. It is also interesting to note that it was Lac leoninum that
was used on Prover 7 in order to antidote the disruptive, chaotic and violent symptoms that were experienced during the first week following the commencement of the proving.
The age, gender and ethnic contribution of provers participating in a homoeopathic drug proving plays a vital role in obtaining a drug picture that can be truly regarded as being
well-rounded and reliable. In terms of the age distribution, subtle differences in proving symptoms produced may have been attributed to the fact that provers are in different
stages of the life cycle. This in turn may have had an effect on the level of sensitivity of each individual prover and in the areas in which these provers produced a predominance
of proving symptoms.
Very subtle differences were also noticed over the different ethnic groups which may be due to variations in prover lifestyles, diets, cultural backgrounds and personal habits –
although only a small percentage of provers participating in this proving were of African decent. Furthermore, the psychological and emotional differences between the gender
groups should also be considered in a proving, as it certainly does affect the manner in which symptoms are experienced and recorded as can seen from the prover entries made
during this proving.
Not imponderable: Ign. Nux-v. Ph-ac. Puls. Lac-c. Lac-ca. Lac-h. Lac-leon.

Das Farbadjektiv pink gibt es im Deutschen noch nicht lange. Es kommt aus dem Englischen, Wörterbücher verzeichnen es seit den 1980er Jahren. Es ist nicht gleichbedeutend
mit dem deutschen Wort rosa.
Wie findet man heraus, welche Farbtöne mit einem Wort bezeichnet werden? Man könnte Testpersonen Farbfelder in verschiedenen Schattierungen zeigen und auswerten, welche
Bedeutung die Begriffe Rosa und Pink haben. Oder man wählt eine Methode, die die Münchner Linguistin Caroline Kaufmann 2006 in ihrer Doktorarbeit benutzte: Sie suchte im
Institut für Deutsche Sprache vor allem nach Zeitungsartikeln, in denen die Wörter rosa, pink und rot verwendet wurden und wertete aus, was für Objekte das jeweilige Farbattribut
bekommen hatten. Eine große Fleißarbeit.
Kaufmann kam zum Schluss, dass pink ein "klares Hyponym zu rosa" sei: Alles, was wir pink nennen, ist auch rosa - aber umgekehrt nicht. Mit Pink bezeichnen wir "einen relativ
kräftigen, grellen Farbton, der in der Natur eher selten vorkommt". Jene schreiende Mädchenzimmer-Farbe also. Das Spektrum vom englischen pink dagegen ist ähnlich weit wie
unser Rosa, es umfasst alles vom zarten Hautton der Schweine über fast braune Schattierungen bis zu jenem kreischenden "deutschen" Pink.
