2. Source & History

The flowers suddenly appear in autum when other plants are dying. The leaves do not appear until the following spring together with the seed hence the commom name reference to "naked lady". The autumn blossom is extremely attractive but very poisonous and has been reagrded as a gout cure for centuries.
The tincture is prepared from corms lifted in the spring.

Oversensitive to everything, light, noise, smell, any jolt or sudden movement.
On account of this extremely irritable.
The "naked lady" constitution is cold even when close to a fire.
Again like its late season autumn flowers medical conditions reveal themselves later in life but are only manefestations of what has been "underground" for some time.

Tabular Materia Medica

Materia Medica (MM) is Latin for medical material. MMs are a listing of remedies together with their respective symptoms and differ from Repertories which are a listing of symptoms and illnesses.

 

This Tabular MM is not presented as an exhaustive comprehensive list of all that is known about a remedy. Rather the opposite. It is intended to be used only as an aid memoire to highlight the foundation upon which by further study and experience a fuller knowledge of homoeopathics can be obtained. Consider the Tabular MM as a word picture showing a black and white sketch of the remedys main essential characteristics upon which colour, shade and tone has still be painted.

 

Remember to rank case symptoms according to their hierarchy giving first priority to
Mentals & Generals when comparing the MM remedy picture of one remedy against another.

Further information on
The Hierarchy of Symptoms

may be had by clicking

Remember also that you don't need to match everything listed under a remedy to benefit from the remedy. All that is required is to find the closest remedy match for those case  symptoms which rank the highest and are the most troublesome. The easiest way to find remedy matches is by Repertorisation. 

 

For more information on Repertorisation click

Once the main case symptoms have been captured in say 4 - 6  remedies fine tune the final remedy selection manually by refering to the MM, or clicking the Further Information tabs or looking up any other approriate reference manual.
