Trifolium as a Brain Food.

Botanical name: 

Related entries: Trifolium

I want to call the attention of the readers of the THERAPEUTIST to a specific influence which I have found exercised by trifolium. I do not think this influence is generally known. I have not seen it mentioned by other writers.

This remedy has a peculiar influence in improving the nutrition of the brain when impaired by overwork, especially in those cases where there is loss of memory of words, confused ideas, or other mental defects from functional causes. I have prescribed this remedy in these cases and have obtained excellent results. I believe that it improves the circulation, not only of the nervous system but also of the entire capillary system, and including that of the extremities.
