The root of the Horseradish is an excellent stimulating diuretic in passive dropsies. It is mostly associated with other agents, as the dwarf elder, juniper berries, the root of the common elder, and other diuretics. It is adapted to torpid and atonic states of the system. The infusion of an ounce to a pint of boiling water may be administered in doses of one to two ounces. (See Stimulants.)
