The common toad, European toad or in Anglophone parts of Europe, simply the toad (Bufo bufo, from Latin bufo “toad”), is an amphibian found throughout most of Europe (with the exception of Ireland, Iceland, and some Mediterranean islands), in the western part of North Asia, and in a small portion of Northwest Africa.
The homeopathic medicine bufo is also useful for children who are mentally weak and people who tend to become mentally disoriented or absent-minded much ahead of time and those suffering from symptoms of epilepsy. Such people may experience convulsions or seizures while they are asleep at night. This medicine is also effective in treating injuries to fingers wherein the pain travels in flashes upward to the arms.
Although the toxic substance (bufotoxin) exuded by the toad is extremely harmful for humans, the homeopathic medicine prepared from this toad poison – bufo, has multiple remedial use. The primary use of bufo is for treating epilepsy that is followed by a fierce headache. The symptoms of this condition may include intolerance of music or any bright object prior to an epileptic fit; lapping or making circling movements with the tongue and a severe pain that tags along the streak of the lymph vessels. People who are considered to be bufo types usually have a tendency to retain fluids in their body tissues and, therefore, appear to be puffed up and obsessed or fanatical. As aforementioned, they also easily become irate when they feel that they are being misinterpreted or misunderstood by others.
It may be noted that the homeopathic medicine bufo prepared from the poison exuded by the toad is virtually an exclusive therapy for conditions related to the nervous system. This medicine is helpful in curing mental retardation, especially in children. In addition, bufo is also an effective homeopathic medicine to treat epilepsy. Sometimes, the bufo type of people may hurt themselves as they have the tendency to drop on the ground quite unexpectedly when they have an epileptic attack accompanied by a frightening shriek. Prior to an epileptic attack, such people cannot tolerate music or any bright object. It has been seen that in most cases, the individuals who belong to the bufo type suffer a terrible headache subsequent to an epileptic fit. When they are actually enduring an epileptic attack, they have a sensation as if electric shocks are running throughout their body and they experience spasms or cramps in the body muscles. In addition, during the epileptic attacks, this type of individuals may also experience shuddering movements that are similar to what is endured by patients suffering from the Parkinson’s disease. Moreover, different parts of their body may become either insensitive or numb or turn out to be super sensitive.
People who are said to belong to the bufo type may have their body excrete moist blood; such as bloody saliva; nose bleedings; profuse flow of blood during their menstruation cycle; bloody vaginal fluids; throwing up blood and/ or bloody breast milk. What is, however, strange is that when these people have such bleedings, instead of feeling weak or sicker, they feel much better!
The discharges from their body also have a foul smell. Very often, the skin of such people discharges pus, a yellow colored, burning and irritating substance.
The symptoms of the conditions suffered by the bufo type individuals deteriorate during the night, when they usually have most of the epileptic attacks. In addition, the symptoms also worsen during menstruation cycle and when they are in a warm room. On the other hand, they feel better during the mornings and when they are in a place where there is cool air.
Generally, managing toads is not considered to be hazardous. Contrary to the common traditional beliefs, it also does not cause warts. In fact, the poison secreted by almost all toads encloses a toxic substance called bufotoxin. Please talk to a specialist before using this remedy!
