Mercurius. (Mercurius Solubilis et Vivus.)

Mercurius Solubilis et Vivus. The Black Oxide and the Element.

Mercurius solubilis was introduced by Hahnemann and proved upon himself, Gross, Gutmann, Fr. Hahnemann, Hartmann, Hornburg, Langhammer, Rummel and Stapf (Mat. Med. Pura), also in a fragmentary way by Knorre (Allg. Hom. Ztg., vol. 6, p. 35) Robinson (Br. Jour. of Hom., vol. 24, p. 516), Crocker, reported by Berridge (Med. Inv., N. S., vol. 1, p. 101).

The symptoms of the solubilis, obtained by regular proving, and the effects of the vivus, gathered from toxicological reports carefully sifted and clinically verified, are sufficiently similar to be placed under one arrangement.

Virtually the action of the two remedies appears to be the same, and they have not always been distinguished in clinical reports, but in all known instances the symptoms of the two preparations are rendered distinguishable by the letters s. and v.
