Crataegus oxyacantha [Crat]

      An enthusiastic doctor once compared the action of the mother tincture of Crataegus ox.-the berries of the white English hawthorn-to the action of a good meal on a tired, hungry and cold man. The dose is about 5 to 10 drops in a little water. Crataegus seems to be nearly a universal heart remedy, fitting all cases.

Phaseolus nana [Phase]

      This is DR. A.M. Cushing’s remedy for certain heart troubles, such as something spells, sudden sinking, etc. Use 6th potency, or higher.

Arsenicum [Ars]

      This drug, 3x trituration, has been said to be the remedy for fatty degeneration of the heart.

Convalaria majalis [Conv]

      Tincture or 3d, is said to be the remedy in heart cases where the patient cannot lie down, but must sit propped up in bed.

Iberis amara [Iber]

      1x will relieve tachycardia, or a rapid heart, palpitation, better than any known means, according to some old practitioners. Also a remedy for simple dilated heart. Dose, 2 to 3 drops of the tincture, three times a day.

Arnica [Arn]

      It has been said that Arnica 30, or, better, the 200th or 500th, will give relief from the oppression of a fatty heart. It is especially adapted to the heart troubles of the athletes brought on by too much violent training and exertion. Dose, once a day, until relief is experienced.
