The bark of the Cinchona tree (Peruvian Bark) has been used by the Jesuits
to treat malaria and other diseses that cause delirium and fevers since the
seventeenth century. In many places of the world it is still used as a malaria
prophylactic and cure although there are more modern quinine derivative drugs
Hahnemann noticed in the early eighties that quinine (the extract from the
Peruvian bark used to treat malaria with great success at the time) will induce
the same symptoms as malaria, the disease that it cures, if taken in excess.
This eventually led to the first proving of a homeopathic remedy and the
development of the modality.
