Fiebertherapie mit Homöopathika
Journal/Book: Ärztezeitschrift für Naturheilverfahren. 1990; 31/12: 901-905.
Abstract: For suddenly occuring conditions of high fever the homoeopathy knows two drugs of convincing efficacy: Atropa belladonna the deadly night-shade, Aconitum napellus, the Monk´s-hood or Wolf´s-bane. Hahnemann published the results of his durg examinations (=AMP) carried oth with these two drugs in the first publication of his AMPs in 1805 entitled: "Fragmenta de viribus medicamentorum positivis, sive in sano corpore humano observatis" ("Fragments with respect to medicaments from positive plants, if oberved in the healthy human body") and later in more detail in the furst volume of the "Real Pharmacology" (1811). Based on studies of the pharmacology of these two drugs we like to raise the following questions: Question 1: Qhat should be estimated higher: the AMP at the healthy human being or the volunatry poisoning? Question 2: How far do the AMPs agree with the present results of the pathophysiology? Question 3: In how far do the constituents of the plants affect the picture of a drug in a specific way? Question 4: Are our pharmacologies free of errors?
