TIPS FROM THE MASTERS…
I know of no remedy to take the place of SANGUINARIA in edema of the glottis, secondary to Acute Pharyngitis.
In threatened phthisis (tuberculosis) with a bad bronchial cough after Pneumonia or Bronchitis, with foul smelling sputum, noticed by the patients, SANGUINARIA will often clear the atmosphere.
Dr. T. K. Moore, M.D.
One can hardly be successful in whooping cough without SANGUINARIA. It may of use early before it has really gotten a start, but its greatest use is at the end where the cough returns every time the patient takes a cold.
These three – SANGUINARIA, IRIS and MELILOTUS together with PULSATILLA & IPAECAC can have and will take care of most headaches. And this is not after the manner of Aspirin and its companion sedatives, but when carefully matched, it removes it lock stock and barrel.
