Rhus Toxicodendron is commonly known as poison ivy and is well
known worldwide for the rash that forms when its oil rubs on the skin. Over the centuries
it has been used to aid disorders such as paralysis and rheumatism. If it is used neat
(and not diluted) symptoms such as a rash, nausea, fever, delirium, swollen glands, and
ulcers may result.
Homoeopaths use Rhus
Toxicodendron to treat conditions that may be accompanied by a fever, restlessness, and
Rhus Toxicodendron was made
as a remedy by recognizing the reactions of healthy individuals to undiluted doses. The
changes in the individuals were recorded.
When a Homoeopath sees a
patient with a set of similar symptoms to the recorded ones induced by sulphur, they then
prescribe it in an extremely dilute form. In a highly diluted dosage, Rhus Toxicodendron
can eliminate the symptoms that it creates when it is at full strength.
