COMMENTS - Clarke’s experience with the magnetism is confined to Mag-aust. 2,000c., but that is sufficient to give him confidence in prescribing potencies of these remedies when their indications arise. The leading symptoms of Mag-Ambr. are: Burning lancinations throughout the body, pains as if broken in joints, where cartilages of two bones touch, shootings and jerkings, disturbed sleep, headache as if a nail were driven in.
The Mag-Ambr. symptoms of the provings Hahnemann says they “occurred from various powerful magnets brought in contact with various sensitive individuals without distinction of the poles. They were observed in experiments conducted for half a year for the purpose of ascertaining the proper and most efficacious mode of stroking the steel with magnets in which a horse-shoe magnet, capable of lifting a weight of twelve pounds, was held in the hands, which were held in contact with both poles for an hour at a time,” with additional symptoms from Andry, Thouret, Unzer and De Harsu.
“Although each of the poles presents something peculiar in its power of altering the human health, yet each of them seems, when applied twice of oftener to produce alternating actions which resemble those of the opposite pole” (Hahnemann).
For curative purposes Hahnemann had recommended a much milder application of the magnet. (The popular use of electric rings for rheumatism is analogous to this.) The method of attenuating media saturated with emanations from the magnet does not seem to have occurred to Hahnemann.
