Galphimia glauca – Schwabe News July – Dec 2020 & Jan – Dec 2021

Galphimia glauca

Galphimia Glauca is a wild plant, belonging to the Malpighiaceae family, and growing in Mexico. The plant was used in clinical experimentation by a group of German doctors from 1964 to 1966, using 3x, 4x, 6x and 12x for a whole variety of allergic infections. It was reported by O. A. Julian in his Materia Medica of New Homoeopathic Remedies. Understanding the necessity, this proving was conducted by David Riley with the support from Deutsche Homöopathie-Union (DHU), the homoeopathic division of Dr. Willmar Schwabe, Germany, using 12CH in 1995 with 16 females and 6 male provers.
