Leonurus as a Heart Tonic.

Botanical name: 

The January number of ELLINGWOOD'S THERAPEUTIST contains a short article on the action of leonurus cardiaca, but I find therein no mention of the action of this remedy upon the heart. Leonurus is a valuable heart tonic. As such it is highly esteemed by the medical herbalists of Great Britain. I have used it in my practice for a number of years as a simple heart tonic, and have found it to exercise an important influence, in such conditions, producing permanent results. I strongly recommend it to the observation of my brother physicians in the United States for this purpose.
