It was highly commended by Dr. Phares. The infusion was given in strong doses, 1 to 3 fluid ounces, but of the tincture, from 5 to 10 drops, in water, ought to be enough.

Agrimonia eupatoria [Agri]

      in small doses, say, one drop of the tincture, several times a day, was Scudder’s remedy for pain in the region of the kidneys.

Apocynum cannabinum decoction [Apoc]

      in 5 to 20 drop doses, is said to be an efficient remedy in Bright’s disease.

Berberis vulgaris [Berb]

      said to cure pain and aches in which the kidneys, bladder and loins are involved. Dosage, from 5 drops of the tincture to 3d potency, three times a day.

Oranges The eating of an orange or two, or, what is the same thing, taking the juice of an orange in the morning, has a beneficent action on the kidneys in health, preventing kidney diseases, and in kidney diseases, aiding in a cure or alleviating the condition. Most likely apples or grape fruit will answer the same purpose. Eat plenty of good, palatable, juicy fruit in the morning before taking your chops and coffee-good for the kidneys.
