Symptoms of the homeopathic remedy Belladonna from the Guiding Symptoms of our Materia Medica by Constantine Hering, a ten volumes comprehensive record of confirmed symptoms, published in 1879….

     Deadly Nightshade. Solanacea.

     One of the first of all medicines Hahnemann experimented with, and the one which led him in 1800 to the discovery, greater than any other ever made in the domain of science, that the life-altering of drugs and poisons is not like the chemical or physical, depending on the masses, but solely on the surface. This has now been mathematically proved, and we have a full right to laugh at the stupid stubborn who doubt it. In 1805, Fragm. de vir. med. posit, Hahnemann published of his own observations 103 numbers, of others 312 ; in 1811 Reine Arzneimittellehre, vol. i, as the first ; of his own observations 176, of others 474 ; in 1829 R. Aml., vol. i, second edition, his own 380, of others and his disciples, Hornburg, E. Kummer, Herrmann, E. Stapf, W. Gross, F. Hartmann, C. F. Langhammer, Rückert, J. E. A. Baehr, H. Lehmann, A. F. Möchel, 1042 symptoms-in all, 1422 numbers ; in 1830 the third and last edition, Hahnemann had three more provers, and in all 1440 numbers, many had been contracted and several numbers united into one ; in 1875 Allen has included, besides the 85 authorities of Hahnemann, in all 241, and gives, without any concentration, 2544 symptoms without a cured one. By the aid of at least 1455 cured symptoms we have been enabled to shorten the whole catalogue to somewhat less than 4000. The next following theme will be the separation of the symptoms obtained from berries, leaves and root, as far as it can be done.
