Ignatia Strychnos ignatii
Registered homeopathic medicinal product, therefore without indication of a therapeutic indication.
The name Ignatia probably derives from the fact that the word Igasud or Iga-sr, used in the Phillipines, was phonetically converted into a Christian form by the Jesuit missionaries by naming it after the founder of the Jesuits, St. Ignatius of Loyola, so that the pagan tradition of the common crop and ritual plant could be adopted more smoothly
Little is known about the plant itself due to the minor economic use and the original occurrence on a few Philippine islands. Interestingly, all plants from the Loganiaceae family that are used in homeopathic medicines (Nux-v., Spig., Gels., Cur.) are highly toxic and prone to convulsions and tetany. Is it Nux-v. around a stocky tree, Ignatia shows a completely different liana-like growth form.
The first description by Father Camelli (1689) is followed by relevant works, all of which emphasize the corresponding toxicity after overdose in addition to the medicinal effect in many cramp-like complaints.
Ignatia was already before Nux-v. the most important supplier of the alkaloid strychnine, which has always been used as a pesticide against rats, crows, etc. The arrow poison curare was also obtained from ignaz beans. Hahnemann's extraordinary biological effectiveness and toxicity were probably sufficient incentive for his first test.
