Polytrichum Juniperum. (Hair-Cap Moss.)

Botanical name:

The hair-cap moss has been especially employed as a diuretic, and so long as it could be readily procured without admixture, gave good satisfaction. I do not know that it has any direct influence, other than to increase the secretion of water in the urine—a hydragogue diuretic; but it might be well to study its action more closely.


Specific Medication and Specific Medicines, 1870, was written by John M. Scudder, M.D.
