The Peppers are tropical climbing shrubs. Piper nig. yields the pepper of commerce. The fruit when ripe is red. It is gathered before it is fully ripe and spread on mats in the sun, when it loses its red colour and becomes black and shrivelled. This is Black pepper. White pepper is the same fruit freed from its outer skin by maceration in water and subsequent rubbing (Treas. of Bot.). The symptoms of the proving are Houat's. The only additional symptom is one recorded by Berridge as having occurred in a lady on two occasions from taking a large quantity of pepper "Feeling as if temples and malar bones were pressed in, agg. on left side." This confirms one of Houat's symptoms. The full, heavy headache of Houat's provings I can confirm by personal experience I get the headache whenever I take food highly peppered.

and I know others who do the same. Sensations of burning occur almost everywhere. Pressure is almost as common Pressure in nasal bones, in temples and facial bones. Contraction of uterus and sensation as if something about to enter it. Sensation of a foreign round body rising to stomach. The symptoms are agg. by change of temperature.
