Keynote symptoms of homeopathy medicine Baptisia, described by A. L. Monroe in his book, Method of Memorizing the Materia Medica, published in 1882….


Besotted and stupid expression of face,

As in Fever Typhoidal (a typical case)

Preceded will oft by Gelsemium be,

The difference in symptoms being those of degree;

In regard to excretions their odor is bad,

Surface of tongue dark-brownish and red,

Illusions of sense-imagines he’s double,

And to unite his “halves” will tumble and trouble.
