Stimulates the functional activity of all organs, increasing the nervous and vascular activity. The drinking of Coffea Cruda by the aged is likely to increase production of uric acid, causing irritation of kidneys; muscle and joint pains, and with the increased susceptibility of old people to the stimulating action of coffee and Thea Sinensis Tea, their use should be curtailed or carefully watched. Great nervous agitation and restlessness. Extreme sensitiveness characterizes Coffea Cruda. Neuralgia in various parts; always with great nervous excitability and Intolerance of pain, driving to despair. Unusual activity of mind and body.

Coffee. N. O. Rubiaciae. Tincture of raw berries.

The effects of Coffea Tosta Coffea cruda have to be considered separately from those of Coffea Tosta Coffea tosta, since the roasting converts much of the Coffeine into Coffeone or Methylamine, which gives to coffee its aroma.

But the effects are scarcely distinguishable, and I have not attempted to keep them strictly apart.

The provings of Coff. c. were made with the raw berries. Coffea Tosta Coffea belongs to the same family as China China, Ipecacuanha Ipecacuanha, and like these remedies has many symptoms of intermittent fever.

It has been noticed that coffee-drinkers who do get ague are more difficult to cure than those who do not drink coffee.

The great characteristic of Coffea Tosta Coffea is exaltation of the senses and sensibility in general.

Sight is improved, fine print can be read easily; hearing is more acute, and noises are intolerable.

The sense of smell is heightened.

The mental activities are exalted.

Sudden emotions, especially joy, produce dangerous symptoms.

Great sensitiveness to touch or contact.

These symptoms will recall Aconite Acon.

Guernsey places it in the front rank of remedies for irritability.

He compares four others with it, all of which have irritability in high degree, but have different concomitants Aconite Acon., "fearful and anxious.

dreads things". Aurum Metallicum Aur., "suicidal, will thrash around in bed (as females in confinement) as if wishing to injure or kill themselves".

Chamomilla Cham., "spiteful, uncivil".

Coff., "wakeful, on the constant move".

Nux Vomica Nux v., "sullen, keeps the eyes shut.

doesn't wish to speak or have anything to do with any one." Staphysagria Staph. and Colocynthis Coloc. deserve mention also.

Teste groups Coff. with Causticum Causticum.

He remarks that dynamised Coff. crud. prevents or neutralises, in many persons, the effects of roasted coffee.

Coffea Cruda quasi-isopathic action, as Teste truly remarks, is by no means confined to Coffea Tosta Coffea; dynamisations of many other drugs being antidotal to secondary effects of the crude substances.

Hahnemann describes the migraine of coffee-drinkers thus "It comes in the morning after waking, increasing little by little.

The pain becomes intolerable, and sometimes burning, integument of head very sensitive and painful on slightest touch.

Body and mind excessively sensitive.

Patients look exhausted, retire to dark places, close their eyes to avoid light of day; remain seated in an armchair or stretched on a bed.

The least noise or motion excites the pain.

They avoid talking, being talked to, or hearing others talk.

The body is colder than usual though no chills are experienced; the hands and feet are especially cold.

They loathe everything, especially food and drink, on account of a continual sickness at the stomach.

If the attack is very violent a vomiting of mucus takes place, which, however, does not relieve the headache.

There are no alvine discharges.

Coffea Cruda kind of megrim scarcely ever leaves before evening.

If the paroxysm is less violent, a little strong coffee which was the first cause of such a headache will produce a temporary palliation of the pain, but the disposition to relapse becomes so much greater.

The attacks come irregularly, every fortnight, or every few weeks, without any apparent cause, and quite suddenly, so much so that the patient often does not feel a single unpleasant symptom the evening preceding the attack.

Such a headache has never been seen by me except in real coffee-drinkers." It is well to inquire carefully into the dietary of patients who come complaining of headaches of this kind.

More recently Dr. Gilles de la Tourette (Lancet, July 20, 1895) has described the effects of coffee.

In his opinion they are very frequently mistaken for the effects of alcohol "morning vomiting of glairy mucus, pain in the pit of the stomach, thickly-coated tongue, loss of appetite.

The disgust excited by even the idea of solid food is such that these patients eat nothing else but bread soaked in their poison-coffee.

There supervene then nausea, vomiting, and painful acid eructations." The pulse is slowed.

Insomnia is common, and if there is sleep it is disturbed by dreams of a terrifying nature, like those met with in alcoholism.

The effects of coffee are less deep than those of alcohol, and quickly disappear when the habit is discontinued.

Peculiar symptoms are as if head too small.

as if something hard pressing on surface of brain.

as if head would burst and fly to pieces if she moved.

as if intestines were being cut.

as if body would burst.

"tight" pain. sensation of warmth. Coffea Tosta Coffea is suited to tall, lean, stooping persons, with dark complexions.

Sanguine choleric temperament, complaints during infancy and dentition.

Diarrhoea in housewives who have much care and trouble in managing their households.

The symptoms are amel. by warmth, and agg. in open air (though in toothache warm drinks agg., cold drinks amel.).

Touch agg.; would like to rub the part but it is too sensitive.

Slight passive movements are perceived as enormous; children at times cannot bear to be carried about.

Most symptoms are agg. at night, sleeps till 3 a.m., after which he only dozes.

All senses more acute; reads fine print easier; smell, taste and touch acute; unusual activity of mind and body; full of ideas, quick to act, no sleep on this account etc.

Affections from sudden surprises, especially joyful surprises; very emotional.

Pains insupportable, drive to despair; exasperation, tears, tossing about in agony; great sleeplessness.

Headache, from over-mental exertion, thinking, talking; one-sided, as from a nail driven into the brain (Ignatia Ign., Nux Vomica Nux); as if the brain were torn or dashed to pieces; worse in open air.

Jerking toothache; relieved by holding ice water in the mouth; returns when water becomes warm.

* * * * *

Coffea Tosta Coffea cruda, like Chamomilla Chamomilla, acts strongly upon the nervous system. Indeed in nervous troubles, where the patient has not been addicted to the coffee habit, it often takes precedence.

If on the other hand he is a coffee drinker, Chamomilla Chamomilla is the remedy. Doctor Teste, of Paris, used to say that coffee was responsible for a large proportion of the neuralgias of France. The Coffea Tosta Coffea patient is a subject of very great general exalted sensibility. See Hering's characteristic cards. "All the senses more acute, reads fine print easier, smell, taste and touch acute, particularly also in increased perception of slight passive motions." "Unusual activity of mind and body." "Full of ideas, quick to act, no sleep on this account." "Lively fancies, full of plans for the future." These symptoms portray, as plainly as words can, the nervous conditions calling for Coffea Cruda.

first crying then laughing, then crying again.

Coffea Tosta Coffea also vies with Chamomilla Chamomilla and Aconite Aconite as a pain remedy. "Pains. insupportable, drive to despair." "Exasperation, tears, tossing about in great anguish." Here again we would not give Coffea Tosta Coffea in an habitual coffee drinker, but Chamomilla Chamomilla rather.

The particular localities where these pains mostly occur are in the head, where the pain is generally one-sided, feeling "as though a nail were driven into the head." Ignatia Ignatia has a similar headache, and it generally occurs in hysterical subjects. Then choice may have to be made between these two remedies.

Prosopalgia, which is often traceable to bad teeth, and Coffea Tosta Coffea has a very peculiar toothache, in the fact that the tooth is easy as long as he holds cold water upon it. Remember Chamomilla Chamomilla toothache is often caused by taking, warm things into the mouth, but is not relieved by taking cold things like Coffea Tosta Coffea.

Dysmenorrhoea, with excessively painful colic. If there are large black clots and Coffea Tosta Coffea does not relieve, follow with Chamomilla Chamomilla. Pains threatening abortion, or after-pains, or very severe unbearable labor pains are often relieved by Coffea Cruda. In short, for pains anywhere, which seem intolerable, and there are no other especially leading symptoms, Coffea Tosta Coffea is to be remembered.

The same over-excitability, so characteristic of Coffea Cruda, causes great sleeplessness, and Coffea Tosta Coffea has won to itself great credit as a sleep remedy. In my experience and observation, it works best here in the 200th potency. And there is no more beautiful verification of the truth of Similia than just here, for it causes great sleeplessness in many people when taken in large quantities. Cough and sleeplessness after measles (a very common occurrence) is wonderfully relieved by it, and it is sleep, not narcosis, and never injures or sickens the patient like the stupor of the opium preparations.
