Aegle marmelos enjoys religious sanctity in India, for it is offered to Lord Shiva,
the Hindu God, during the worship rituals on Hindu festivals. It, along with the Aegle folia
leaves, is eulogised in Indian medicine for its tonic and therapeutic action on the gastrointestinal tract. Leaves are also used in the form of poultice on inflamed parts with benefit.
Keeping in view the importance it enjoys, the CCRH conducted independent provings
of Aegle marmelos fruits and leaves and the pathogenesis evolved through these
provings are presented separately.
The pathogenesis included in this monograph is an obvious improvement on
the short proving report presented by Dr. P.P. Biswas of Calcutta and included in the
Drugs of Hindoosthan by Dr. S.C. Ghose. This monograph also contains symptoms
which have been clinically verified on patients and some others which were not observed
during the proving on healthy volunteers but clinically confirmed. These may prove to be
of added value as clinical symptoms.
