Extracted from HOMOEOPATHICA

Volume 19 No.3
In April 1982 Behzad Schroff and Gool Cama presented a paper at an international homoeopathic congress in Brighton, printed in the British Homoeopatbic Journal in July that year, in which experiences with the 6x potency of a medicine made from Australian vermiculite (a mica-like mineral) were related. The mineral had been sold in its pulverised crude form as a naturopathic dietary supplement, but the proprietor of the business thought there might be more money in it in potentised form. The authors were asked to compare the properties of the crude form in capsules and the 6x version.
This is what they discovered:
The trial run was undertaken for comparative evaluation. 6x was dispensed to subjects who had taken the crude doses earlier. Needless to say they found the potentised form more efficacious than the previous capsules. To further confirm its efficacy, the least hopeful cases were carefully chosen, and with their full consent 6x was administered: 4 tablets four times a day.
The first dose was administered, on 9 July 1980, to an elderly lady who had developed osteoarthritis since the death of her brother ten years ago. Her knees had been first affected and then the other joints in the lower extremities. In spite of extensive treatment and care, the disease was progressive. The wrists became painful and the fingers gradually flexed.
Heavy doses of painkillers only gave momentary relief from the agony and discomfort. Ten days later, on 19 July she came personally to report on the action of 6X. All that she kept repeating was, "Look at my fingers!" There was no pain nor discomfort and the fingers were straight. Since the action of the drug had started, she was advised to discontinue medication, so as not to interfere the drug's beneficial action. But in vain. Her knees were still aching constantly, so she persisted with the medication. After a month she was able to step into the bathtub on her own. This was first noticed by her niece, as to her it had become an automatic movement. Nine months later unfortunately, she had a fall, resulting in the impacted fracture of the neck of femur. The part had to be replaced which meant a month of immobilization. When she was first made to walk, to everyone's surprise she did so, and without pain or stiffness, which was firmly attributed by her and her relations to the continuation of 6X. It is over a year now since she has stopped taking painkillers. However, initial movements are often painful-more so in the mornings-and an acute bout recurs when she unduly exerts herself, such as walking for a long time or climbing many steps.
The second recipient was a lady in her early thirties, who was greatly deformed by osteoarthritis and who had undergone prolonged traction, even surgery. She was on drugs not yet officially marketed by the pharmaceutical concern. 6x was taken by her as and when she remembered or pleased(!) but after ingesting 20 of 6x she reported feeling much lighter, less pain and oedema, more free and easier movements.
Relatives observed listlessness being greatly reduced. Everyone who took 6x for osteoarthritis reported feeling better, livelier and lighter. Everyone noticed a reduction in swelling around the joints, and that movements were easier. Improvement was more rapid in smaller joints than in larger joints. Some felt lameness or looseness at joints. This was due to a reduction in abnormal fluid around the joint.
This was explained by a lady who took 6X. She was on cortisones for the past 18 months. To counter the side effects, she took antacids and diuretics. On taking 10g of 6X she found her joint pains were the same.
However, she felt lighter and her "puffiness" was less. She discontinued her diuretics of her own accord, as her urine output was also good. An increased urine output had also been noticed by another recipient earlier, but was not emphatically mentioned.
A lawyer walked in one day, asking for 6x. Incidentally he was the first male recipient. He had a severe backache. He had taken all kinds of medicines to rid himself of his backache. He had also resorted to physiotherapy, naturopathy, massages and yoga. The most demoralizing factor was having stopped his jogging, for fear of deterioration. 80 to 90% of improvement was brought on by ingestion of 6X for three months.
As word got around of a new drug being used for arthritis, a very regular patient rang up to inquire why she had been excluded. She was told politely, patiently and clearly that her backache was due to osteoporosis and not osteoarthritis and that they were opposite conditions. Despite this she took 6x, at her own risk. Two months passed without comment. When her daughter came for treatment she was casually asked about her mother's backache. "Mummy took the medicine in 6X for a few days only and stopped. But I have noticed", the daughter added, "that although mummy went out shopping, and was out for six hours at a stretch, she has not complained of any aches and pains".
To confirm this finding, 6X was given in cases of osteoporosis, and either disappearance or great reduction of pain was seen. One of the cases of osteoporosis was the outcome of treatment with cortisone. Her chronic bronchitis was precipitating into bronchiectasis. In acute bouts she had to take heavy doses of cortisone to prevent herself drowning in her own secretions. After taking 6x she came earlier than expected to report. "Listen", she said with glee. "Forget my backache, but my cough is very much better, and expectorations easy, also decreased in quantity. I am positive it is due to this 6X I am taking. I have never felt so much better before". Her blood picture has changed-from too many red letters and underlined to all within normal limits. Her chest X-ray also shows improvement. More cases of bronchitis and bronciectasis are being undertaken and all show remarkable improvement. Whenever there have been relapses. the major factor was overdoing things, mostly physical exertion.
On symptom similarity Bryonia was the drug that was needed intercurrently. Surprisingly, Bryonia was also indicated during relapses in bronchial conditions. Depending upon sputum examination and past or family history Pneumococcin or Bacillinum were also used to hasten the action of 6x.
In January 1986 the BHJ printed more experiences with this remedy, now known as Vermiculitum or Vermiculite. The German veterinarian author Hugo Wolff told of giving Vercimulitum 6x to a severely physically handicapped colleague who later wrote to him: It will probably be of special interest to you to hear that the agonizing pain in my legs has almost completely disappeared since about a week ago. The right knee is freely mobile again and can he exercised, and the paralysis on the right side shows marked improvement for the first time in seven years! After that long period of time 1 am now actually able to walk without a stick at times, yet 1 had been unable to walk even with a frame for the last nine months. We still find it difficult to take this in, and we are tremendously grateful to you. The full significance of the help I have received will be apparent if I tell you that the orthopaedic surgeon who is looking after me, one of the leading men in his field, had told me only this April that he felt he could do no more for me and I should be grateful to have avoided a wheelchair so far. . . ."
Having tested it on a human, Wolff then used Vermiculitum in 83 cases in his veterinary practice using 6X and 30X.
The conditions he treated were always genuine bone diseases causing lameness, irrespective of the clinical label-rickets, arthritis, dysplasia of the hip joint, lameness following fractures, indefinable growth disorders involving lameness, osteofibrosis and spondylosis. All kinds of dogs were treated, large and small. *31 showed complete recovery, *51 marked improvement, and *18 showed no response, probably because they had bone tumours.
One of Wolffs cases was a red chow-chow, 7 years old. A school of veterinary medicine considered it incurable. It had a hip dysplasia so severe it was almost too painful to watch it walk. Vermiclilitum 6X, three times a day, was given in three courses of 20 days, after which the dog was able to walk as well as before the disease developed. A phone call about two years after its last lot of medicine confirmed that the dog was still in excellent condition. Several people in New Zealand have prescribed Vermiculitum to both humans and animals with results as spectacular as in the cases related here.
Vermiculite is also known by the term Mineral.
