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


Through the vegetative nervous system, especially acts upon the plasma of the blood, destroying its vitality. Also has a powerful action upon the bones, and periosteum. The skin, alimentary canal and respiratory organs are more or less affected by it.


Bones very sensitive to the touch, with intolerable digging pains at night.

Chronic suppurations of the skin, especially about the joints.

Rheumatic affections about the joints, with red, shiny swellings.

Rhagades in the bends of joints.

Skin does not heal readily.

Pain after eating food, in weakly females.

Dr. T.J. Comstock gives the Deutoxide of Manganese, in chlorosis, if gastric disturbances and loss of appetite predominate. I have given it in anaemia with excellent results.

Symptoms worse at night.

Paralysis of the nerves of motion.

This is a close analogue of Iron, and will be found adapted to similar diseases.
