Arnica Montana. (Radix.)

Leopard's Bane. Compositae.

A widely spread plant growing on the high mountain plains of Germany. One of the oldest popular drugs, called in the German Wohlverleih, which means bestowing, well-being, having nothing to do with wolves, as our learned French colleague supposed; it is also called Fallkraut, meaning the herb useful after a fall. Two hundred years ago Fehr called it panacea lapsorum.

One of the first provings of Hahnemann was made with the Arnica root. (Fragmenta de viribus medicamentorum positivis sine in sano corpore humano observatis, 1805, pp. 17-24) containing 117 symptoms of Hahnemann's own observation; quotations, 33; one of the most wonderful results of his exploration, and all from the root.

In the first volume of his Materia Medica Pura, 1811, pp 236-248, his own symptoms increased to 175; quotations from old books, never considered of any importance to real homeopathic practitioners, to 55.

In the second edition, 1822, pp. 471-503, Hahnemann's symptoms had increased to 278, all from the root, and he was able to add provings by his students. He examined each prover with the utmost care and scrupulousness, and the symptoms had increased to 314.

In the third edition, 1830, soon after, there were in all 638, only 46 additions. A great many reports of so-called poisonings have been given in the journals.

It is very probable that all these were the result of tincture made from the flowers, containing the arnica fly. Before the bud opens, an insect Atherix maculatus Meignen, lays its eggs into the torus, or receptacle. The worms coming therefrom live on the seed, which does not prevent the development of the flower, but the ripening of seed. Nearly all flowers in the shops contain eggs, worms, or the excrements and other remains of the worms, or the pupas; and all this acts similarly to Cantharides.

Following the example of Hahnemann, we ought to use nothing but the root.

It would be of great importance to have this insect or its eggs or pupas proved, to enable us to separate the symptoms of the flower from those of the insect. All tinctures made from the flowers are very uncertain preparations and not to be trusted.
