RESUMO
Apresentamos aqui os resultados da experimentação patogenética de Lapis lazuli. A experimentação foi realizada segundo o protocolo de experimentação de Brosimum gaudichaudii (Congresso Nacional de Homeopatia- Rs- 1998) adaptado às necessidades do grupo. Acrescenta-se o estudo temático do medicamento, as rubricas repertoriais, o diagnóstico diferencial e a sugestão de novas rubricas repertoriais. A realização da experimentação gerou a postulação de algumas diretrizes práticas a serem incorporadas no protocolo.

 

ABSTRACT
The results of the proving of Lapis Lazuli are presented. The proving followed the protocol adopted for Brosimum gaudichaudii (Congresso Nacional de Homeopatia - RS - 1998), further modified to adjust to our group's demands. They are also presented a thematic study of the remedy, its repertorial rubrics, its differential diagnosis and new rubrics that ought to be added to the repertory. The experience created the need of suggesting new practical guidelines to be included in the protocol.

INTRODUCTION
What is a proving? Basically, it's an experimental procedure that systematically questions nature as to obtain empirical data that ground the employment of remedies in human beings and animals.

A remedy by itself is an abstraction: it only gains actual life and expression when in contact with a living creature.

On the other hand, it can be also considered a powerful tool in the discovery of anthropological knowledge. Remedies enable us to probe human trajectories, to trail physiologies, to depict healthy and diseased states, to modify the receptors of the information they convey, to suppress symptoms, to palliate symptoms, to heal.

Difficulties are inherently immense: scientific objections, the complexity of recording subjective data, observation, dataanalysis, and so on. Any trial is complex, but homeopathic proving have the additional disadvantages of lack of financial and institutional support.

Experimental science is destined to continual advance. But as we, homeopaths, remain amateurish, advance will be as slow as it has been, which may only darken our medical and cultural potential. The symptoms obtained in the proving of Lapis lazuli, notwithstanding its small number, are sufficient to allow for the prescription of this remedy in actual practice. Proving never are anything but fragmentary hints, yet, when well interpreted and applied, project us to a wider scope of knowledge: to that which is essential in every patient, his/hers hermeneutic totality.

 

MATERIAL AND METHODS (2)
The proving of Lapis lazuli, a Brazilian gem, was effected in São Paulo, Brazil, during 2000 and 2001. The double-blind method was adopted; the substance being revealed after the proving was over. The experimental protocol of Brosimum gaudichaudii (Congresso Nacional de Homeopatia, RS, 1998) was employed, with eventual alterations according to our group's specific needs.

Two series of vials were employed, labeled "pathogenetic proving" (vials 01 and 02). Vials #1 were distributed to provers after a 30-day auto-observation period and an initial homeopathic interview (See Appendix - Protocol). They were instructed to take one daily dose, every morning, for 30 days and should contact the Proving Directors weekly or if disturbing symptoms were to appear. Vials #2 were distributed in the second stage.

Although it was asked of the pharmacists to include placebos - as the protocol establishes - after the opening of the sealed envelope, it was find out that all vials contained Lapis lazuli 90th Korsakovian potency.

 

DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROVING
Our team, including provers and proving directors, initially was composed of 10 members. Before the actual proving, provers were subjected to laboratory tests and a regular homeopathic consultation, after an initial 30-day period of autoobservation, systematically recorded in standardized notebooks. One of the provers quitted and a second was rejected by the proving director - upon consulting the prover's cardiologist - as exams revealed high levels of cholesterol.

 

RESULTS: MATERIA MEDICA OF LAPIS LAZULI

MIND

P1 - USS-M

Went back to work, happy, happiness itself - before I was always tired, the day seemed too long. More resolute, confident, different posture, firmer, lee doubting. I am not so tense, anxious as before, I ponder about the attitude to adopt, before I used to go mad, now I am calmer.

PARTIAL CONCLUSIONS

Some difficulties were met before, during and even after the actual proving: availability of a minimum of participants, compliance with schedule, evaluation of results. Nevertheless, they did not impede the continuation of the proving. As positive effects, besides the production of the symptoms peculiar to a Brazilian substance never tested before, we achieved a better understanding concerning the homeopathic remedy and the value of symptoms in the materia medica. A second proving is presently under development.

2. THE PROVING DYNAMICS

Having complied with the initial requirements of the protocol, the proving consists of the following stages:

  1. Ascription of provers to the Clinical Directors (CD). Every pair of prover-CD will discuss the PROVING DIARY, how it is to be recorded, and need of permanent availability. The initial auto-observation period is extremely helpful in this stage.
  2. Distribution to provers of numbered vials that will have to be kept in boxes, protected from electromagnetic fields, strong odors, etc. It is not mandatory that all provers test all vials: this will depend on the schedule set by the General Director (GD).
  3. After the selection of the vial, the prover will drop 5 drops directly below the tongue, once every day, without ingesting any neither fluid nor solid substances nor smoking tobacco 30 minutes before and after the trial substance. The vial must be shaken 10 times before ingestion.
  4. Ingestion will continue until symptoms appear, when it will be discontinued. If no symptoms appear on the 15th day, ingestion will be also discontinued.
  5. If no symptoms appear, after a 30-day resting period, the next vial will be started.
  6. When symptoms appear, ingestion must be discontinued, symptoms recorded and discussed with the CD.
  7. After the disappearance of symptoms, wait 30 days before starting the next vial.
  8. Women will begin the proving on the first day after the end of the menses (abiding to the 30-day drug-free period mentioned above).
  9. The same sequence will be repeated with every vial.

The proving may be discontinued at the local level by the CDs and/or the GD.

 

3. THE PROVING DIARY

The proving diary will be elaborated by the Proving Team or it may follow any model that fulfills the requirements established by the group.

It ought to contain the truthful record of the prover symptoms and will be discussed weekly with the CD. Any severe clinical complication must be immediately reported to the CD.

The record of symptoms will follow the same pattern both in the auto-observation diary and the proving diary, according to:

  • Initial circumstances.
  • Sensations.
  • Time.
  • Weather conditions.
  • Place.
  • Periodicity.
  • Rhythm.
  • Extensions.
  • Alternations.
  • Concomitances.
  • Modalities of amelioration and aggravation.
  • Mood for the duration of the symptom.
  • Images and metaphors.

The diary must include all data that reflect a perfect record concerning the beginning and discontinuation of the doses. The prover will only use the front of the page, leaving the back empty for the DC remarks.

 

4. MODEL

A. Identification of the prover (code).

B. Procedure:

  1. The prover will legibly write the vial number.
  2. Date, month, year;Weather conditions; Place.
  3. The prover will permanently carry the diary with him/her in order to be able to record each symptom, indicating the time, place, modality, sequence, etc.
  4. Symptoms must be recorded in a simple and natural language. Terms must be subjective-objective, i.e. provers must express themselves spontaneously, through the common descriptive language and employing analogies. It is essential to be true to the flux of speech, such as it expresses itself, even in the case of abstract images. Eventual interpretations may be included between brackets { }.

Medical jargon ought to be omitted, as the record is not devised to decode medical terms but to achieve the maximal accuracy of the individual's reaction. But whenever this is not possible, the prover may employ technical terms.

C. Before the proving:

During the 2 weeks before the proving, the prover must record all symptoms, including those that he/she usually feels. Avoid every kind of excess.

D. Diet:

  1. The prover will not alter his/hers usual diet, which ought to be as simple as possible.
  2. Those used to regular use of coffee, tobacco, seasonings, alcohol, etc. may take them with moderation.
  3. Those who only use the substances above occasionally will abstain from them. If they eventually use them, they will have to record the occasion.

E. Other remedies:

  1. During the proving, the prover will not be able to use any other kind of remedies, including topical.
  2. Avoid camphor, unusual perfumes, medicated lotions and creams, teas, laxatives, etc.

F. How to take the remedy:

  1. See above, "Dynamics of the proving".
  2. It must be kept in mind that a few well described symptoms are much more valuable than many of them that do not distinguish characteristic and imaginary symptoms.
  3. The remedy must be discontinued immediately after symptoms begin to appear and should not be repeated.

G. Recording symptoms:

  1. Date, hour and place of dose-intake.
  2. Weather conditions.
  3. Physical condition.
  4. Date and hour of the symptom's appearance.
  5. Disappearance of an old symptom.
  6. Reappearance of a new symptom.
  7. Aggravation or modification of a usual symptom.

H. Every symptom will be described according to the following modalities:

  1. Chronological order.
  2. Localization and Bodily Sides.
  3. Sensations as if...
  4. Gradual or abrupt appearance and disappearance.
  5. Duration.
  6. Modalities of amelioration and aggravation:
    • Open air, cold, sun, exposure, bathing, crowded romm, narrow places, in the bed, etc. 
    • Before and after storms; change of weather.
    • Darkness, etc.
    • Local or general motion.
    • Inspiring, exhaling, coughing, sneezing.
    • Laughing, screaming, talking.
    • During exertion; stretching; running; walking; standing; sitting; rising; bending; laying over something; resting upon something.

    • Before, during or after meals; which meals; drinking; eating; swallowing.
    • Before, during and after menses; sexual intercourse; passing stools; passing urine.
    • Vomit; eructation; flatulence.
    • Perspiration.
    • Smoking; drinking alcohol (and which drinks).
    • Thinking on his/her symptoms.
    • By odors.
    • By music; noise.
    • By touch; hard or strong pressure.
    • When alone or in company.
    • By any emotion: sadness, worry, bad news, reproof, reproach, indignation, contradiction, humiliation, mortification, disappointment, anger, happiness, surprises.
    • If symptoms are: constant, continual, periodic, acute, intermittent, etc.
    • Extension and direction of sensations.
    • Other modalities.

I. Laboratory tests:

Lab tests will be ordered before the proving and whenever necessary according to the CD/GD.

 

 

ADDENDUM 1

The proving Group of the Fundação de Estudos Médicos do Paraná established the following guidelines, which are attached to the Proving Diary:

  • Identify your records with the Prover Code, not with your name.
  • Identify your records with the vial number to which symptoms correspond.
  • Enumerate in ordinal numbers (1st, 2nd, 3rd) every day of the proving. The first day is the day when you began to take the remedy. Begin a new for each vial.
  • Identify every day you take the remedy.
  • State the duration of each symptom, from date and hour of appearance to date and hour of disappearance.
  • State dates of beginning and end of menses.
  • In each symptom, record:
    Adverbs:
    Why? Triggers; initial conditions.
    Where? Organ; extension; physical environment.
    How? Sensations as if...; Rhythm (how it begins, develops and ends); Alternations; Concomitances, etc.
  • Factors that ameliorate and aggravate.
  • Emotional state during symptoms.
  • Intensity: (+) Slight; (++) Moderate; (+++) Strong, intense.
  • DC: Check in the repertory if data are sufficiently clear and precise as to belong in a rubric or sub-rubric.
  • DC: Classify the prover's symptoms as:
  • NS: New symptom.
  • USS-UnM: Usual sporadic symptom, unmodified
  • USS-M: Usual sporadic symptom, modified
  • OSR: Old symptom returned.
  • O: Others.

 

ADDENDUM 2

The Proving Group of the Escola Paulista de Homeopatia added:

  • Record even the most ephemeral sensations.
    If you do not know how to classify a symptom, do not classify it or rate it
    NC: no classification.
  • In the case of concomitances, state the smallest details; whenever be case, state the general effect that symptoms produced to you.
  • Dreams: write them down as soon as you wake up; if possible, tape them.
  • Severe symptoms: write them down and immediately call your CD.
  • Pay attention to the spatial and geographical context of each symptom: when applicable, describe the environment. State when you are in a journey.
  • Pay attention to family and job contexts.
  • Record eventual commentaries that friends, relatives, coworkers may do.
  • CD: Do not compare the patient's symptoms with symptoms of already known remedies.
