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


Rheumatism chronic, or coming with Fever,

Having for cause, cool, damp, rainy weather,

Usually pains are aching and tearing,

Sleepless and anxious, his strength quickly wearing;

Typhoid too, with symptoms just said

On The Tip Of The Tongue a Triangular red,

Excitement of body, “he cannot keep still”

Inaction of mind, “he is stupid and dull”;

Continuous motion will lessen the pain,

On midnight’s arrival it augments again.

During rest and damp weather affections are worse,

exposure to rain may the troubles induce.
