Hura brasiliensis. Assacu. N. O. Euphorbiaceae. Tincture of milky juice.

The milky juice (called Assacu by the Brazilians) of Hura is as powerful as that of the better-known Euphorbians. A case of leprosy having been reported cured with Assacu led to its extensive use in this disease, though, as Murex Mure (who proved it) says, without curing any others. Two of his provers had been affected with leprosy, but under homoeopathic treatment they seemed to have got well. One of them during the proving had symptoms of compression of the spinal marrow with very great suffering. All the provers had symptoms of nervous excitement, twitching and irritability. The gastro-intestinal irritation of the other Euphorbians was marked in the provings. Clinical experience is needed to bring out the characteristics. Farrington gives these indications Vesicles which are so tense that when pricked they eject their contents.
