Provings

The College carries out provings (the homoeopathic equivalent of a drug test) of new remedies. During your time at the College, you will have the opportunity to participate in a proving as a voluntary part of your homoeopathic education. New remedies are tested on healthy human beings, and never on animals.

Thiosinaminum and Tungsten are published provings which have been carried out by students, staff and friends of the College. Robin and Pigeon are currently being collated. The proving information about Genetically Modified Maize, which as animal feed for dairy cattle would pass through the food chain to our everyday intake of dairy foods, has been collated, and will be further evaluated in the profession through prescription and case evidence.

Here is a flavour of the GM Maize proving.
Its dryness is particularly striking, and will provide a useful indicator for prescribing. Consider these symptoms: Dry sensation, left eye; Dryness, inner canthi; Dry eruptions, about the eyes; Cracks, dry lips; Face, dryness; Eruptions, dry jaw; Dryness lips; Dryness eruptions mouth; Nose, Dryness, with thirst; Teeth, Dryness with thirst; Thirst,extreme; Dryness vagina; Cough, Dry; Dryness, legs.
We always ask provers to record fixed ideas and dreams. For GM Maize, these included missing lower eye sockets, with a sensation it had been shot away, a missing cheekbone, shot away; and a missing left side of the face. There is also, for example, an affinity for pubic bone pain. Read the detail below, if you like.
