SPHERE OF ACTION
In all probability this remedy acts through the solar plexus upon the minute ramifications of the arteries, upon the mucous membrane of the digestive organs, and kidneys; upon the former, as an emeto-cathartic.
Its key-notes are still unknown; it is used in hemorrhages, dysentery, and diseases of the kidneys.
It is of great value in hemorrhages.
This plant, sometimes called Senecio hieracifolia, has cured old ulcers on the legs. The bruised root was applied to the ulcer.
