DEVELOPMENT AND REFINEMENT OF THE PROVING

DEVELOPMENT AND REFINEMENT OF THE PROVING
An example of Streptococcinum: method, results, clinical applications

 Homeopathic experimentation, otherwise known as proving, provides the opportunity to learn about the pathogenetic and therapeutic potential of dynamised substances according to Hahnemann’s method. The author has refined the original Hahnemannian methodology by making several significant modifications: 1. Placebo control groups; 2. Double or triple blind trials; 3. Expert supervisors who monitor a maximum of three provers each; 4. Frequent direct contacts between supervisors and provers; 5. Use of potencies equal or superior to 30CH 6. Prolonged use of the substance; 7. Importance of objective symptoms; 8. Follow-ups of the symptomatology of each prover for up to one year; 9. Initial seminar for choosing participants and final seminar for comparing symptomatology. A single proving, using this refined version of the Hahnemannian method, makes it possible to obtain the typical symptoms of the tested substance and therefore provides information about its use as a remedy. The author describes the proving of two strains of Streptococcinum Streptococcus pyogenes Rosenbach and Mercy nos. 433, 434 – which were tested at the School of Homeopathy in Verona in 2012. The proving consisted of a triple blind trial with potencies of  30CH (4), 200CH (4) and MK (4), and a placebo control group (4). The observation period lasted 30 days with regular check-ups for up to one year. The symptoms that were produced were intense and distinctive: cutaneous symptoms similar to scarlet fever; symptoms affecting joints similar to rheumatism; symptoms affecting the digestive system; symptoms affecting the pharynx, the tonsils and the main parts of the respiratory system; general symptoms, such as lack of energy, listlessness and intense drowsiness. The author describes a clinical case of serious post-urethritic reactive arthritis, chronic sinus infections and recurrent episodes of tonsillitis. The patient had benefited from other homeopathic remedies, Medorrhinum and Lycopodium, without definitive results. In under one year, Streptococcinum restored the patient back to a normal condition.

STREPTOCOCCINUM

STREPTOCOCCINUM
Proving 2012 conducted by the School of Homeopathy, Verona

The Streptococcinum nosode is a homeopathic remedy produced from two strains of Streptococcus pyogenes Rosenbach, Mercy n. 433, 434. The School of Homeopathy in Verona conducted the proving of Streptococcinum between February and May 2012. The participants were recruited from students and teachers at the school: 16 provers, 6 supervisors, 1 coordinator and 1 director. The proving consisted of a triple blind test with a 25% placebo control sample. 30c (4), 200c (4) and MK (4) potencies were used together with placebo control samples (4). The observation period lasted 30 days. The provers were consulted at regular intervals to assess the persistence of the symptoms for up to 12 months after the start of the proving. The pathogenesis and symptomatology is particularly interesting. Under experimental conditions, it seems to reproduce certain pathologies caused by Streptococcus pyogenes such as scarlet fever and rheumatism. The digestive system was particularly affected. Proving has been confirmed to be a reliable experimental method and a source of important information both for the substance being ‘proved’ and the intensity and duration of action of the homeopathic remedy.

PROVING OF COLIBACILLINUM

PROVING OF COLIBACILLINUM
Homeopathic School of Verona 2011

 Colibacillinum is a relatively unknown nosode. The Homeopathic School of Verona organized a proving of the homeopathic drug which was conducted between February and May 2011. The subjects were recruited from students and teachers of the school: 15 provers, 6 supervisors, 1 coordinator and 1 director. The proving consisted of a triple blind test with a 20% placebo control sample. 30CH (6), 200CH (3) and MK (3) potencies were used together with a placebo (3). The observation period lasted 30 days. The article describes the symptoms experienced (pathogenesis). The results show that  Colibacillinum can be prescribed as a homeopathic medicine.
