Marking nut tree
Anacardium orientale / Semecarpus anacardium
The homeopathic remedy Anacard or. is prepared from the marking nut, which the Hindus traditionally used to cure several types of skin disorders. The marking nut tree produces a type of ink, an acrid or caustic black sap that was mixed with chalk and used for marking linen by the Hindus. This juice is present between the external crust and the nut and was used to get rid of warts as well as to clean ulcers on the legs. On the other hand, the juice was used by the Arabians primarily to treat mental ailments, memory loss, spasms as well as paralysis.
In fact, the marking nut is a somewhat extraordinary kind of substance that is derived from a source which people generally depend on for any type of therapeutic purpose in the conventional medicine. As aforementioned, the homeopathic medicine anacard or. is derived from a shrub or an ordinary plant that yields a milky or creamy sap, which when exposed to air becomes black in color. The plant is, therefore, called marking tree because the milky sap obtained from it is regularly used to prepare an ink.
However, in homeopathy, this substance is used as a medicine called anacard or. and it has entirely different actions. Like in the instance of any other homeopathic medicine, the process for preparing anacard or. involves great caution and when the remedy is prepared, the final product does not retain any trace, whatsoever, of the original plant. Anacard or. is prepared using ripened dry fruits of the marking tree. These fruits are subsequently crushed and macerated in alcohol and allowed to remain in the same condition for a minimum of five days. Subsequently, the solution produced by this process is filtered and constantly diluted and succussed till the time the substance attains the desired level of dilution. The substance obtained by this process is known as the homeopathic medicine anacard or. This remedy has proved to be useful in treating different types of health conditions and has been in use for ages.
People who belong to the anacard or. personality have an exceptional type of constitution. Nevertheless, the main traits of the Anacardium personality includes being somewhat dramatic, which is difficult to go unnoticed, given that the patients are adequately comfortable with the homeopath to be frank with them. Anacardium people have a distinct and split up strength of character or will - which, on the one hand, is usual and responsive personality, on the other, it is a dramatically wicked or ‘demonic' sub-personality. The second nature of anacardium's will tries to have power over the individuals and provoke them to perform obscene actions. It has been observed that the Anacardium patients are amply in control of themselves in resisting the provocations of their evil side. However, occasionally, this results in immense struggle between their two different wills. It may be noted that the greatest impulse that seizes the Anacardium personalities is a compulsion to torment others using aggressive language.
Homeopaths frequently recommend anacard or. for people who have been suffering from distressed memory and/ or a troubled psychological condition. In addition, this homeopathic medicine is often prescribed for people who have trouble in coping up with a conflicting will or people who think that they have been working between the good and the evil very often. Such people generally have a very poor self-respect and usually demonstrate fury and nastiness or brutality. In effect, all such psychological problems may appear as physical symptoms which often make life very difficult. Using the homeopathic remedy anacard or. helps to cure these conditions and associated symptoms effectively.
