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


Bilious troubles, and others that hot weather sends,

Rheumatism, that comes when warm or when cool,

Yellow tongue that is dry, which symptom extends

Over mouth, down the throat, e’en including the stool;

Now the stool is beside quite large and quite hard,

Imitating the pulse in the latter regard,

Aconite-like in frequence and fullness and tension,

As found in the Fevers of every dimension.

Look out, when the pains serous membranes invest;

Beneficial Eruptions, when being suppressed,

After motion, much worse-while great thirst prevents rest.
