Homeopathy Remedies for Liver

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

Carduus marianus [Card-m]

      The tincture of the St. Mary’s thistle, in doses of from five to ten drops, is a great liver remedy, or for diseases in which the liver is primarily involved, as, for instance, following abuse of liquor, or associated with asthma, dropsy, coughs with profuse expectoration and many other conditions traceable to the liver.

Natrum sulphuricum [Nat-s]

      This drug, in the 6x trituration, is a liver remedy, especially where there is a sick-headache accompaniment. A yellow, greenish or brownish coated tongue is a strong call for Nat. sulph. in any condition.

Carrots Persons with livers diseases or bilious persons should eat carrots frequently. In parts of France this is considered a cure for the liver, or for bilious conditions.

Chelidonium [Chel]

      A fairly modern book maker Fernie writes that the old doctrine of signatures is long since exploded, and then quotes the fact that by its guidance Chelidonium was selected by the ancients for jaundice, torpid liver, clayey stools, pain under shoulder-blades and the other evidences of liver ills. Well, to day, in 5 drops doses of the 0, 2 or 3 times a day, it is about the best liver medicine available, according to some doctors, who, at times, stray from the orthodox path.
