Notes from the Eclectic Physicians

Notes from the Eclectic Physicians

1898: Webster
Water eryngo exerts some influence on the alimentary canal, and will occasionally be found useful in the treatment of chronic pharyngitis complicated with laryngeal irritation, as well as diarrhoea of teething children when the discharges are largely mucus.

I have found it a good remedy in dyspepsia, where a persistent tendency to gastric irritation is present. Here we find the edges of the tongue red and tender with nausea and disgust for food arising upon slight provocation. The best place for the remedy is in irritation of the urinary organs.

Form for Administration – The specific medicine.

Dose – From one to twenty drops.
