Lamu Provings

by Jan Scholten


This is a report of the provings done on 16 species of plants on the island Lamu, in front of the coast of Kenya. The provings were done in the week of 14 to 19 march 2011. The species taken were growing on the island of Lamu, mostly indigenous. The species were selected with the idea of developing new remedies from families that till now are less known or completely unknown. Special interest was given to mangrove species, in particular species from the family Rhizophoraceae.

The proving form was that of a trituration proving. This has the advantage that the remedies are already potentized to C3 after the proving and ready for further potentisation.
