Scrophularia nodosa (== figwort/= pilewort) betrachte ich als Regent dieses komplexen Miasmas, deshalb habe ich es in der nachfolgenden Tabelle groß und fett gedruckt. Diese Arznei habe ich am häufigsten

verordnet und die verwandten Mittel daran gemessen. Das half mir auch, die Konflikte der Skrofulose besser zu verstehen:

Schwache oder keine Bindungsfähigkeit, muss sich deshalb ganz stark an jemandem oder an einer Idee festhalten (Tub.)

Wenn eine Verbindung zerbricht, folgt extreme Verlustangst, eventuell Schrecken mit Wahnvorstellungen (Tub.)

Gleichgültigkeit dem Tod gegenüber (Syph.)

Militante Fixierung auf Glaubenssätze (Syph.)

Kompensationsverhalten: Kein Bedürfnis nach Bindung trotz der Suche danach (Syk. Abspaltung)

[Dr Sunitha Devi Vannemreddy]

The Knotted Figwort, common throughout England, is similar in general habit to the Water Figwort, but differs both in the form of its root and in having more acutely heartshaped leaves.

The stem is without the projections or wings at its angles, and the lobes of the calyx have only a very narrow membraneous margin. The plant, also, though found in rather moist, bushy places,

either in cultivated or waste ground, and in damp woods, is not distinctly an aquatic, like the Water Figwort.

The flowers, which resemble in appearance and character the Water Figwort, are in bloom during July and are specially visited by wasps.

During the 13 months' siege of Rochelle by the army of Richelieu in 1628, the tuberous roots of this Figwort yielded support to the garrison for a considerable period, from which circumstance the

French still call it Herbe du siège. The taste and smell of the tubers are unpleasant, and they would never be resorted to for food except in times of famine.

Enlarged glands are present. Hodgkin’s disease. Skin. Breast (tumors) (Scirr). Eczema of the ear. Pruritus vaginae. Lupoid ulceration. Scrofulous swellings (Cistus.) Painful hemorrhoids. Tubercular testis. Epithelioma. Pain in all flexor muscles.

Called the Scrofula Plant, on account of its value in all cutaneous eruptions, abscesses, wounds, etc., the name of the genus being derived from that of the

disease for which it was formerly considered a specific.

It has diuretic and anodyne properties.

The whole herb is used, collected in June and July and dried. A decoction is made of it for external use and the fresh leaves are also made into an ointment.

Of the different kinds of Figwort used, this species is most employed, principally as a fomentation for sprains, swellings, inflammations, wounds and diseased parts, especially in scrofulous sores and gangrene.

The leaves simply bruised are employed by the peasantry in some districts as an application to burns and swellings.

The Welsh so highly esteem the plant that they call it Deilen Ddu ('good leaf'). In Ireland, it is known as Rose Noble and as Kernelwort. Gerard tells us, referring to what he evidently considered an exaggerated estimate of its worth: 'Divers do rashly teach that if it be hanged about the necke or else carried about one, it keepeth a man in health.'

The herb was said to be curative of hydrophobia, by taking

'every morning while fasting a slice of bread and butter on which the powdered knots of the roots had been spread and eating it up with two tumblers of fresh spring water. Then let the patient be well clad in woollen garments and made to take a long, fast walk until in a profuse perspiration, the treatment being continued for seven days.'

A decoction of the herb has been successfully used as a cure for the scab in swine. Cattle, as a rule, will refuse to eat the leaves, as they are bitter, acrid and nauseating, producing purging and vomiting if chewed.
