Echinacea Purpurea

Echinacea Purpurea signs and symptoms of the homeopathy medicine from the Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica by J.H. Clarke. Find out for which conditions and symptoms Echinacea Purpurea is used…

      Echinacea purpurea. Black Sampson. (Eastern States of America.) N*. O. Composite. Tincture of fresh root.


Diphtheria. Putrid fevers.


I mention this plant, which is a popular remedy in the Eastern States, because it has been used in place of *Echi. *ang. It has probably a very similar action, and the root causes the same pungent sensation on lips and tongue as the tincture of *Echi. *ang. It well deserves a proving. The black root has been taken as a “signature” of the remedy in cases of low fevers where a black tongue was observed.
