TIPS FROM THE MASTERS…
I think for the ordinary acute attack of indigestion due to an indiscretion of diet, NUX VOMICA is almost a specific especially if the indication has been particularly marked.
Dr. D. M. Borland, M.B., Ch.B.
NUX VOMICA is almost a specific in influenza if given early it averts the disease.
Dr. Younan, M.B., C.M.
NUX VOMICA is often indicated in cough and diarrhea after previous use of so-called cough mixtures, all of which most generally contain opiates.
Dr. C.G. Raue, M.D.
In sleeplessness of hypochondriac irritable patients troubled with vertigo and easily fatigued with mental exercise, NUX VOMICA is of great value; it quiets the nervous system and produces sleep.
When you don’t know what to give, give NUX VOMICA.
