Teucrium ScorodoniaTeucrium scorodonia
Homeopathic remedies are prescribed on the basis that in a tiny dilution like cures like, so while very dilute Teucrium Scorodonia may help, unprocessed Teucrium Scorodonia may be best avoided.
Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Teucrium Scorodonia in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.
T. scorodonia is an extremely bitter plant with the smell and taste of hops, for which it has been substituted. Some have observed an alliaceous smell, and Cazin says that it gives a garlicky taste to the milk of cows, goats, and sheep which eat it. Dr. Criquelion, of Mons (Rev. Hom. Belge, June, 1895, quoted R. H. Franciscea Uniflora Franšaise, Feb., 1896), tells how Dr. Martiny one day, in the Ardennes, had occasion to examine a man of thirty who was apparently in the last stage of consumption and had a cavity in one apex. Martiny gave his opinion that he had not long to live. A year later, being in the same district, he called at the house and inquired of a man whom he saw there, apparently in perfect health, what had become of the invalid. "I am he," was the reply. It was the fact, though it took some time to convince Martiny of it. An old woman had recommended him to make a tisane of the Wood Germander which grew abundantly about there. He had taken it daily, and got well. Martiny introduced Teuc. s. into his practice and used a tisane of it with much success in bronchorrhoea and consumptive affections with tuberculous elements and muco-purulent expectoration. I have, myself, confirmed this, using the Ø tincture in five or ten-drop doses two or three times a day. Criquelion points out that Teucrine has been used as a subcutaneous injection in tubercular cases as a substitute for Koch's Tuberculin. Criquelion had a patient, a farmer of scrofulous habit, high colour thick neck, who had had for ten years an enlarged testicle the size of a Cydonia Vulgaris quince, which he diagnosed to be tuberculous. Teuc. s. 6 was given, one drop in four spoonfuls of water.
a spoonful three-quarters of an hour before each meal. After three months the testicle was softer.
in six months it had almost returned to its proper size.
