LILIUM TIGRINUM signs and symptoms from the Characteristic Materia Medica by William Burt of the homeopathic medicine LILIUM TIGRINUM …


This new remedy has such a specific and peculiar action upon the generative organs of women, and the heart, that I think it best to call particular attention to it. Its main action seems to be spent upon the uterus, the ovaries, vagina, and mammae; in men it seems to centre on the heart.


Bearing down in the lower part of the abdomen, women when standing, with pressure upon the perinaeum, relieved by pressing with the hand against the vulva.-W.E. PAYNE, M.D.

Severe pressure in the rectum and anus.-W.E PAYNE, M.D.

Prolapsus uteri, with bearing-down sensation, accompanied with palpitation of the heart.

Persistent bearing down in the uterine region, and a feeling as if the pelvic viscera, indeed the whole abdominal contents, were being dragged downwards, even from the chest and shoulders through the vagina, with a constant desire to support the parts by pressing the hand against the vulva.

Great depression of spirits, with constant inclination to weep.

Symptoms aggravated in the evening and at night; better through the day.
