  • The nutmeg is the fruit of Myristica moschata L. The tests were made with the trituration of the fresh nut; However, Kent suggests the root, which contains more medicinal substances.

  • By far the most important collection of test symptoms, clinical experiences and poisoning comes from Helbig and can be found in the short-lived journal Heraclides. Hering added a few symptoms (HVJ, Volume 10), and he also wrote an extensive monograph with over 2,000 symptoms. Individual symptoms come from other sources, for example from an examination by Berridge (AE, Volume 7).
