Homeopathy Remedies for Arteriosclerosis

Anshutz gives a useful therapeutic differential diagnosis of the condition Arteriosclerosis, with the most useful homeopathic remedies. Therapeutic byways by E.P. Anshutz, published in 1900….

Carduus marianus [Card-m]

      It has been asserted that Carduus marianus, the tincture of St. Mary’s thistle, will cure arterio sclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. The dose is 5 drops of the tincture, three times a day, to be carefully administered, though the drug is not hurtful. This was recommended by Dr. O. Hutchinson, New York, who claimed marked benefit to patients from its use.

Plumbum [Plb]

      Dr. J.H. Moore expressed the belief that plumbum took the lead in the therapeutics of arteriosclerosis. Potency and frequency of dose not given, but presumably the 6th.

Olive oil.- Some men assert that the free use of a good olive oil every day is the best thing known to prevent the hardening of the arteries and the stiffening of the muscles.
