Related entries: Trifolium as a Brain Food
I desire to call the attention of the readers of this journal to the specific action of trifolium in improving the nutrition of the brain. I believe this influence of this remedy is not generally known. When an individual is overworked, when there is general mental failure, or especially where there is loss of memory of words, or when there is confusion of ideas from functional causes, I find trifolium to be the one indicated remedy. Also when there is weakness of the lower extremities, or of the feet from deficient capillary circulation. It will also benefit those cases where chilblains occur readily and persist.
I have found lobelia to be a heart remedy in those cases where there is a sensation of a band or a constriction around the chest.
