Solanum malacoxylon

 

[Dr. Hildebrandt]

Solanum malacoxylon, syn. glaucophyllum, glaucescens, glaucum is a South American solanacea, causing a disease in cattle in Argentina („Enteque seco“) and Brazil („Espichamento“):

the Enzootic calcinosis. This is due to the presence of Cholecalciferol [1, 25 Dihydroxycholecalciferol, 1,25-(OH)2 D3] in the plant. If the cattle starves and eats the leaves over a long period, it gets calcifications in its inner organs and muscles, showing the symptoms of a Vit D. intoxication.

 

In 1981 Dr. Gilbert Benyamine, Lyon had the idea to use this remedy in D6 – D30 for several months in 19 cases of periarthritis humeroscapularis with success. It was used for this indication in France. The proving did not support the indication of shoulder pains, but the clinical use in my experience does support this indication and others very well.
