Fraxinus Americana

Fraxinus Americana | Materia Medica by John Henry Clarke

White Ash. N. O. Oleaceae. Tincture of the bark.

Clinical : Uterus, affections of; prolapse of. Uterus, tumours of.

Characteristics : Fraxinus has had a fragmentary proving, but the chief clinical authority for its use is Dr. Burnett, who regards it as a uterine tonic in all heavy states of the uterus with prolapse, bearing-down, and relaxed ligaments. He calls it “the medicinal pessary.” I have repeatedly verified his indications. It is an organ-remedy of the first rank. It is also indicated in uterine tumours, especially fibroids, with bearing-down sensations.

Relations : Compare: Sepia, Lil. t., Nat. hyperchlor., Secale, Hydrast.


2. Head : Headache with vertigo followed by fever.-Throbbing pain in back of head and neck.

6. Face : Fever sores on lips.

13. Stool : Bowels constipated.

14. Urinary Organs : Urine scanty and brown.

16. Female Sexual Organs : Uterine prolapse.-(Bearing-down pains.-Painfulness and heaviness of uterus.-Fibroid tumours.)

21. Limbs : Cramp in feet after midnight, lasting three nights after the fever.

26. Sleep : Wakefulness first part of night; last part dreamed that two rough men came into the house; in putting them out I was cut with a knife; I called for police, and that awoke me; I was breathing quick, with a fearful feeling.

27. Fever : Cold creeping and hot flushes.-Fever two days after the medicine was stopped.
