A plant indigenous in the south of Europe. The tincture is made from the fresh root gathered in Autumn.
“The Cyclamen Europaum, or Sow-bread, was extensively used in medicine by the ancients. Their descriptions of its properties are vague enough, but it is remarkable that they ascribe to it a power to affect the uterus and its appendages- which ascription was not physiologically verified until the most recent provings.
It used to be considered that the root of Cyclamen, applied externally, hastened difficult labors, and assuaged the pains. Also, that to touch Cyclamen, or take it internally, would produce abortion, or bring on premature labor.”
The remedy was introduced into our Materia Medica by Hahnemann, and proved by members of the Austrian Society of Homoeopathic Physicians at Vienna.
