Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Juglans Regia in traditional homeopathic usage, not approved by the FDA.



Left ear commenced burning severely at 2.30 P.M. (two hours and a half after second dose).

became very red and swollen, and before bedtime a pimple began to form on the inside (second day).

burning in the ear increased (third day).

for eight days had a discharge of pus from my ears (the left one more than the right), with a severe burning and redness of the external (left) ear.

when walking, there was a feeling as if something was dropping inside of the ear at every step (after four days).

during the greater part of the time I was taking the drug, I could not lay the left side of my head on the pillow on account of the soreness,.

Right ear aching, with a feeling of fulness (eleventh day).

two days later, left ear commenced in the same way.

I then had a discharge of pus from both ears for about a month.

the external part of the ear was very much inflamed, and had two large and painful sores on it, similar to those I have seen on children who have eaten freely on the nuts,.

Swelling of the left cheek and upper lip, with a swelling on the gum over the left upper incisors, without previous toothache.

after five days this began to affect the cheek, and the skin became red.

after a week there was a hard, reddish, extremely painful swelling in the left cheek, in the middle of which, about an inch and a half from the wing of the nose, was a round, sharply-defined circle of the size of a penny, rather depressed beneath the rest of the swelling, dark red, and yielding.

discharge of matter at this point was expected every minute, as it could be seen through only a thin layer of skin.

I then had the tooth (which was apparently sound) drawn, when a large quantity of ichorous pus discharged through the cavity, and fortunately an external opening was avoided.

after a few days the swelling wholly disappeared, and the natural color of the skin returned,.

Violent burning and itching on the flexor surface of the right forearm, near the elbow-joint, and the appearance of a red spot as large as a half dollar, in the middle of which small pimples developed.

the next day the red spot had disappeared the pimples had become larger, very painful, and another furuncle was dreaded.

although some pus formed it did not increase in size but disappeared, so that nothing could be seen after six days,.

The skin of the right axilla itched and burned, and became sore and cracked.

during the next month it continued very red and scaly.

it became moist and a large tetter formed, consisting of small vesicles with very violent burning.

if I perspired much the tetter became much worse the next day.

the perspiration together with the secretion from the eruption made a greenish-yellow stain and stiffened the linen.

the pain became so great at times that all violent motion of the arm was impossible.

the glans were not swollen.

in order to relieve the itching and burning the spot was at times washed with cold water.

nothing else was used. I noticed that increased burning and itching were always associated with aggravation and extension of the tetter, so that always a few hours after increased burning and itching a new eruption of vesicles and a larger extent of redness became apparent.

during the succeeding month the same trouble broke out in the left axilla but did not become so violent.

another month later a small furuncle appeared on the shoulder (on the coracoid process), suppurated and healed after a few days.

ten days afterwards a very large and painful furuncle appeared over the biceps muscle, about two inches from the elbow.

it was surrounded by a circumscribed redness and induration.

it ripened after ten days and discharged much bloody matter and speedily healed.

after still another month there appeared two red spots on the right elbow-joint, which itched violently, and upon which there developed a small yellow pustule.

these both disappeared after eight days. At this time the tetter in the axillae had not entirely healed.

in the right axilla there was almost nothing to be seen, in the left there appeared a new eruption of small burning vesicles, which afterwards formed a red moist spot.

perspiration aggravated the burning and moisture very much, so that the shirt over a large space was stained yellow and stiffened.

about this time there also appeared on the right side between the ninth and tenth rib another furuncle, with decided induration and violent pain, which ran a course of nine days and discharged some bloody matter, leaving an induration for a long time. About this time a red spot appeared on the arm, not far from the seat of the second furuncle, continuing to enlarge for ten days, becoming rather hard, something like a small cystic tumor or indurated gland, but quite painless.

at this time there also appeared on the left instep and afterwards on the right (though here in a less degree) a peculiar skin-affection, a redness of the size of a half dollar, with itching and eruption of small vesicles, leaving behind a small hard scurf, whereby the whole place became elevated and very painful.

the small scabs especially caused violent pain, since they were pressed in by the boot and rubbed off, so that the part became raw and was prevented from healing. This distressing trouble lasted for a month, after which it gradually disappeared, though the spot remained of a bluish-red color, thickish and swollen, for a long time,.

Pains in the abdomen, pressive and drawing, aggravated by motion, followed by appearance of menstruation fifteen days before the time, whereupon the pains moderated.

during the eight succeeding days there was a very copious discharge of blood, blackish, often in large clots (while the menses usually lasted only three days).

at the same time she complained of general exhaustion and loss of appetite,.

Even on the first night he noticed, after coition with his wife, slight burning on the penis, and there appeared a slight abrasion in the skin at the point where the prepuce joins the penis.

although it was washed with cold water the soreness increased, so that after eight days there was a suppurating streak several lines broad running half way around between the glans and prepuce.

the spot was treated with charpie and linen, but continued to have an ugly look, the ulcer became larger, the margins hard, the base lardaceous, bleeding easily on slight pressure, so that it reminded one of a chancre.

frequently there was a small scab, beneath which pus continued to ooze, and which very frequently came off and left a suppurating ulcer as before.

this continued for nineteen days.

after a few days a hard healthy scab formed in the middle, which at last fell off, leaving healthy skin, so that the form of the ulcer was completely changed, instead of being one long narrow ulcer, there were now two small round ones.

there healed after thirty-seven days, leaving no visible scar, (Any one who was not cognizant of the origin and course of these ulcers would without doubt have pronounced them syphilitic. -Clotar MULLER.).

Peculiar drawing pain in the first phalanx of the thumb and joints of the left hand, worse on motion, not aggravated by pressure, feeling as if sprained, lasting the whole evening, and after going to bed the same pain in the right great toe.

the pain in the toe disappears after rising from bed in the morning, while that in the thumb remains the whole day, often noticed only on moving it, frequently very violent, sometimes while at rest.

the painfulness of the thumb continues for a few days,.


Muscles somewhat relaxed,

General exhaustion and disinclination for the usual business (third day),

Skin eruptions are prominent.

Nux juglans. Walnut. Juglandaceae. Tincture of leaves and of rind of green fruit.

"It was said that in the golden age, when men lived upon acorns, the gods lived upon Walnuts, and hence the name of juglans, Jovis glans, or Jupiter's nuts" (Treasury of Botany).

From many points of view the walnut-tree is of very great importance, and well deserves its lofty name.

Besides providing food, at any rate fit for the gods, and wood at once light and strong, a sap that yields sugar, a fruit that yields a dye and an oil, and serves for pickles, the Royal Nut has a place in medicine which deserves to be better known.

The Treasury of Botany gives a hint to homoeopaths in this remark "Its plantation should not be too near dwellings, as some persons are affected by the powerful aroma of its foliage." The remarkably brain-like appearance of the nut has given rise to the notion that it is a "brain-food." I cannot say that there is any other ground for it.

but in Clotar Müller, who was the first to prove Jug. r., it produced this curious symptom "Excited, as if intoxicated, in the evening in bed, and a feeling as if the head were floating in the air".

showing a decided brain action, such as we generally associate with the "wine" rather than the "walnuts" of dessert.

Peevishness and mental indolence were other mental symptoms noted.

The head symptoms are as marked as those of Jug. c., but the lancinating pains were not noted in the occiput as with that remedy, but in the forehead.

There are few remedies which cause flatulence and bloating of the abdomen more markedly than Jug. r. It appears to affect the spleen more than the liver (opposite of Jug. c.).

There is diarrhoea, and many rectal and anal symptoms; but the diarrhoea is not so distinctly bilious as that of Jug. c. Like Carya alba and Jug. c., Jug. r. is haemorrhagic, the blood being black and clotted (uterine).

Remarkable symptoms of inflammation and ulceration appeared in the male sexual organs.

Juglans Regia to a large extent belongs to the general integumatary action of the remedy.

It was Clotar Müller who made the observation that "In the digestive organs it causes derangement and irritation, which simultaneously call forth abnormal symptoms in other organs, especially in the head.

After this action, which is brief, appear various exanthematous symptoms, which appear late and run a chronic course." The skin symptoms of the Regia are more pronounced and varied than those of Cinerea.

Juglans Regia has led to its more frequent use in scrofula, as skin and gland affections go much together.

Farrington says Jug. r. is one of the best remedies in "tinea favosa, especially in the scalp behind the ear, itching is intense at night so that the patient has difficulty in sleeping." Scabs appear on arms and in axillae.

In the proving of Jug. r. the symptoms went from the right axilla to left.

In a patient of mine, a nurse who had poisoned her left arm some years before from a septic and possibly syphilitic case, inflammation of the axillary glands ensued, first of left then of right, leaving an eczematous itching condition.

The glands of the groin also became affected. Elaps Corallinus Elaps. 200 had relieved the bulk of the conditions, but there was still a little irritation occasionally in the axillae, and I thought I might expedite matters by giving Jug. r. 12 three times a day.

Juglans Regia is what happened Five days after beginning the Jug. r. an eruption of minute vesicles appeared on her back, itching much.

It extended all up the centre of the back from sacrum to mid-dorsal region, spreading out below, tapering above.

She had scratched holes in two places.

The rash was agg. after washing.

But all soreness and irritation had gone from the arms and axillae.

I antidoted with Rhus Tox Rhus 12.

Four years later she had had no more trouble with the glands.

Cl. Müller, who experienced the axillary skin symptoms in his own person, had never suffered from a skin affection before.

One of the provers was cured of an itching eruption of the legs from which he had suffered in winter for four years, the itching commencing as soon as he began to undress.

Müller's absence. The left side of head, face, and abdomen mostly affected.

Axillary symptoms proceed from right to left.

The symptoms generally are agg. by motion; migraine agg. by speaking; pain in abdomen agg. by laughing.

There is agg. after fat food. agg.

on flexor surface of r. forearm, near elbow, with burning and red spot, in the middle of which was a pimple, the redness disappeared, but the pimple was painful and pus formed.

Burning in penis after coition with his wife, with abrasion where prepuce joins penis, afterwards a suppurating streak half-way around between glans and prepuce, then the ulcer became larger, margins hard, base lardaceous, bleeding on slight pressure, often there was a small scab, from beneath which pus oozed and which often came off and left a suppurating ulcer, afterwards a healthy scab formed in the middle and fell off, leaving healthy skin, so that instead of one long narrow there were two small round ulcers.

these healed and left no scar.
