Momordica balsamina. Balsam Apple. N. O. Cucurbitaceae. Tincture of fresh ripe fruit.
Momordica was introduced by Dr. Mercier, whose wife made the proving with twenty-four drops of the tincture, producing some very well characterised symptoms. Griping and colic declared its relationship to Colocynthis Colocynth. and Elater., as also severe pains in back and hypogastrium with painful and excessive menses. A peculiar sensation is "As if the whole contents of the head had greatly diminished in weight." Farrington gives as a keynote (though it does not appear in the proving) "distension and rumbling in splenic flexure of colon," which he compares with the effects of Lycopodium Lyc. SYMPTOMS.
Tincture. Used also externally as a liniment and poultice for burns, chapped hands, etc.
Colic. Dysmenorrhoea. Flatulence. Leucorrhoea. Menorrhagia.
