TIPS FROM THE MASTERS…
I have never done better work with any other remedy in valvular diseases of the heart than SPONGIA.
Dr. Nash, M.D.
SPONGIA TOSTA is the most valuable medicine we have when there is fibrinous deposit upon the valves of the heart. I have repeatedly found the bellows-murmur disappear as well as the subjective symptoms become relieved under its use. Sudden waking up in the night with a sense of suffocation is the symptom, which especially leads me to its choice I must say that for removing the valvular lesions of endocarditis, I have found SPONGIA very inferior to NAJA.
Dr. Hughes, L.R.C.P.
SPONGIA relieves the cough and other concomitants of an aneurysm of the descending aorta.
Dr. Hughes, L.R.C.P.
