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


Sequel is to Aconite in some diseases found

Particularly when the Croup is on its annual round,

Or Heart Disease Organic is added to life ills,

Night after Night awakened by Suffocative spells;

Goitre too has found a foe of greatest might,

In which the patient gasps with said smothering spells at night;

As for the Croup alluded to, its drug relation shows

That it is “quite the caper” after cold, dry zephyr blows;

On coughing sound emitted like the barking of a dog,

Sounds in the throat when breathing like the sawing of a log,

Tuberculosis remember too, Orchitis don’t forget-

Afflicted ones are very fair and rather lax and fat.
