We owe Ficus religiosa to Dr. Sarat Chandra Ghose, of Midnapore, who made the first proving and thereby discovered its power to cause and cure haemorrhages of many kinds. Dr. Ghose kindly sent me a supply of the remedy, and I have had very satisfactory results with the 1x potency in controlling menorrhagia. The provers were Dr. Ghose himself, his wife, and a dog. As the experiments are quite remarkable I will give them in detail. The dog, which was perfectly strong and healthy, received 40 drops of the tincture one morning. No result followed that day, and the dose was repeated next morning, and the animal commenced and continued to vomit blood of a bright red colour. It kept very quiet and was unwilling to move. After three doses of five drops of the tincture given in quick succession, the vomiting ceased. It is remarkable that the same treatment (minute doses of the same remedy) was effectual in arresting the effects of the drug in the other two provings. Mrs. G. took the tincture in 20-drop doses repeatedly throughout two days. On the third day dysentery and menorrhagia set in simultaneously. The blood was bright red. Other symptoms were Headache.
