In an address to the study of Homoeopathy, the much -celebrated Homoeopath of
the 19th century, Dr. J.T Kent said, "Homoeopathy rests not on theory nor on
opinion, but upon facts. Hypotheses and reasoning have no place in treatise on
that upon which human life depends." (Kent, J.T, Lesser Writings)
Every step in Homoeopathy needs to be based on facts, which have been
repeatedly verified. An important aspect of Homoeopathy is a continuous evolution
of the Homoeopathic Materia Medica, a step to increase the armaments of the
physician to fight the diseases lurking in the mankind. CCRH has been trying to
make its small contribution in the vast world of homoeopathy, by its endeavours
involving drug standardization, drug proving and clinical verification.
Boerrhavia diffusa, is an Indian plant, which has been given by the Providence in
abundance. Botanists categorized it as a weed. What could have been the logic
behind bringing to the world, substances which we see as unwanted and harmful?
What could have been the nature's intent when it allowed such a substance to
grow and that also, not as scarce material, but as something very common and
abundantly available? Unraveling the enigma of the nature is, what science aims to
achieve. Seen through the eyes of the botanist, it looked as plant, of no utility, but
when it was seen through the eyes of a physician, what was seen as a simple plant,
had immense therapeutic potential, which was explored as and when it was
subjected to the sanctified process of Drug Proving. The drug proved to be a
wonderful medicine, when it was put to test in clinical verification.
This monograph contains the drug standardization data of Boerhaavia diffusa, also
symptoms obtained following drug proving, and symptoms clinically verified. The
scientists at CCRH have conducted this entire process, which is now open for
appraisal from the fellow Homoeopaths.
