TIPS FROM THE MASTERS…
I have seen cases where every indication would point out to a mastoid operation relieved by CAPSICUM.
CAPSICUM tincture has been used as a stomachic for lack of appetite and dyspepsia.
Dr. Otto Lesser, M.D.
I can endorse that Dr. Lynn’s strong recommendation of CAPSICUM in Dipsomania. 10 minim doses of the tincture obviates the morning vomiting, removes the sinking at the pit of the stomach, the intense craving for stimulants and promotes appetite and digestion. It should be taken shortly before meals or whenever depression and craving for alcohol arises.
CAPSICUM 10 to 30 drops of Q will enable a drunkard to walk home.
For homesickness, think of this first, CAPSICUM 200
Dr. Fourbister, M.B., Ch.B., D.C.H.
This remedy is very good for Mastoiditis. I also find it useful to combat homesickness and in persons who are allergic to red pepper.
