Brachychiton Rupestris – a group trituration to C4

Substance sourced by, and trituration notes collated and formulated into materia medica, by Patricia Hatherly
Brachychiton rupestris [Queensland Bottle Tree (family Malvaceae)] was chosen for trituration since the more well-known Australian member of the Malvales, the Boab, (Adansonia gregorii; predominantly found in the Kimberleys), has a Dreamtime connection with Australia's Aboriginals. And, since both trees have a long and well-documented tradition of being used for practical, medicinal as well as ceremonial purposes, I wondered if any common themes would emerge connecting Brachychiton rupestris [brachy-rup] to the provings of Lac Macropi Gigantei and Uluru, both of which reflect the story of those who are understood to be the nation's original custodians. To my mind, having medicines from the animal, mineral and plant kingdoms (all uniquely associated with the continent) and connected in such a special way, could be clinically useful.

The Queensland Bottle Tree, originally classified in the family Sterculiaceae, (the Cacao family, which is now within Malvaceae), is native to Queensland, and was given this name by Karl Moritz Schumann in 1893. The name comes from the Greek: brachys, short and chiton, a tunic (a reference to the coating on the seed) and the Latin: rupes, rocky cliff face; crag (which is why it loves to grow in dry, gritty, loamy soil and is generally found in plentiful numbers along escarpments in central Queensland). It grows naturally between the coast and the Great Dividing Range, particularly in the Carnarvon Gorge, and there is no speculation concerning its origins.

The trituration was conducted in the suburb of Indooropilly (not too far from where the specimen grows), over the weekend of 13-14 July 2013, and thirteen homœopaths (11 female and 2 male) were involved in the trituration. Eleven worked with the substance over two days with one overseeing the process with respect to calling time and facilitating the post-trituration discussion at each stage, and one filming the event. Consistent with tradition, each participant was given one drop of the menstruum along with 65 grams of milk sugar for the C1 trituration, and the subsequent levels proceeded over two days as laid down in The Organon. All participants were asked to remove rings and watches while they worked with the substance, and to write down their reactions and observations. Mortars and pestles were bagged and left at individual workstations overnight.
