Palladium, one of the rare metals, was first separated from native Platinum by Wollaston in 1803, and Was named after the planet Pallas, which had been discovered just before that time by Olbers.
Hering, who made the first provings in 1850, says "If we classify the Sulphides according to their solubility in dilute acids, Pallad. must be placed with Argentum, Rhodium Metallicum Rhodium, Ruthenium, and Osmium Osmium, and Platinum Metallicum Platina remains with the less soluble Merc Viv Mercury, Aurum, and Iridium. Platinum and Palladium, both proved in dust form, showed such similarity in their effects that the question arose whether corresponding differences might be found.
These data can only be furnished by frequent use of Pallad. in practice." Clinical experience has done much to distinguish between these two remedies, related as closely in their effects on the human organism as they are closely related in nature.
The chief characteristic of Pallad. is affections of the right ovary attended with pains which are amel. by pressure.
Skinner cured with Pallad. a young lady who had excessive pain in the right ovary during the menses.
The only relief she could get was by inducing her sister to sit on that region.
Palladium amel. by pressure distinguishes the pain of Pallad. from the similar ovarian pain of Platinum Metallicum Plat.
Lippe was the first to turn the provings to account, and the mental symptoms provided his best guides.
The chief characteristic of Pallad. in the mental sphere is "Love of approbation," which lays its victim an easy prey to slights real or imaginary, and easily gives place to a state of "wounded pride and fancied neglect"; irritability which often finds vent in violent expressions.
Such a patient is amel. in society, and agg. after the party or entertainment.
Palladium state of mind (which differs from the hauteur of Platinum Metallicum Plat.), when found associated with uterine and ovarian disorders, will surely indicate Pallad.
There is much uterine bearing down, and even prolapse.
Many head symptoms were noted, and this has been confirmed "Headache across top of head from one ear to the other." According to Hering the pains of Pallad. are fleeting and transient and hard to describe.
