BIG LAUREL (OF THE SOUTHERN UNITED STATES), YOLOTXOCHITL (OF MEXICO).
(Magnolia-named after Peter Magnol, a French botanist.)
First proved by Dr. Talavera, of Mexico, in 1885.
Magnolia has pains of various kinds, muscular and articular rheumatism, especially the latter, the pains shifting (149) and with aggravation from damp air or weather (9). The pains affect the left side of the body in particular (1250.
The rheumatic pains are apt to affect the heart (162) and it had been used for endocarditis and pericarditis, valvular lesions and angina pectoris (107), with anxious palpitation and suffocation, feat of death, perhaps with crampy pain in cardiac region and usually with pain from the heart running down the l. arm (110).
I have used Magnolia in the tincture.
