VIPERA TORVA symptoms of the homeopathy remedy from Plain Talks on Materia Medica with Comparisons by W.I. Pierce. What VIPERA TORVA can be used for? Indications and personality of VIPERA TORVA…



      (Vipera berus-the common viper of England; Vipera redi-the Italian viper.)

We will refer simply to the use of Vipera for acute phlebitis and for varicose veins (205).


      The vein is swollen, bordered by an area of inflammation which is very sensitive to touch, but with this particular symptom when the remedy is called for; the sensation on letting the limb hang down, as if it would burst from the fulness of the veins.

This is supposed by many to be the essential symptom of the remedy, and without it, it is not to be prescribed.
