Schwabe News Volume 1 | Issue 2 | December 2010

Rosa canina1

It is prepared from the wild rose, a deciduous shrub 1.8-3.6 m high, with erect or straggling, glabrous branches armed with stout, short, hooked spins. Rosa canina is one of the principal sources of rose hips, which are rich in ascorbic acid (Vitamin C). The earliest report on this drug is found in J. H. Clarke’s materia medica. According to him Burnett had made a proving on himself which evoked increased flow of urine and little heat in the urethra. Clarke has also indicated this drug for bladder affections and dysuria. A recent proving by Karine Haukaa was published in the journal Homoeopathic Links, 4/2006, which has provided few more details on the characteristics of the drug. The proving was conducted at Norway during the winter of 2002/2003. This drug is available in mother tincture, 6, 30, 200 and 1M potencies from SchwabeIndia.
