P. E.—Inner bark.
Properties: Astringent, stimulant.
Use: One of our best remedies to control post partum hemorrhages. In flooding during miscarriage, in menorrhagia, and, in fact, in all forms of passive hemorrhages it is a fine remedy. May be combined with hamamelis or erigeron or both to advantage. This will control most passive hemorrhages better than other combinations. Of value in epistaxis. It works best in the parturient state where there is a condition of atony and a general relaxed condition of the uterus. In hematuria and pulmonary hemorrhage it is of great value. It sometimes irritates the stomach and is contra-indicated in inflammation of the gastro-intestinal tract.
