As specific indications we find the tongue is full and pale, often coated with a heavy, yellow coat, and the mucous membranes are pale with an apparently enfeebled capillary circulation. There is usually persistent headache with more or less disturbance of the stomach and intestinal tract, due to faulty action of the liver.
There may be constipation, or the feces may be gray colored and light in weight; floating upon the surface of water. The urine is pale and often cloudy.
The remedy corrects faults of the liver which give rise to bilious headache and dyspepsia. It overcomes capillary engorgement of a chronic character, thus relieving chronic congestion of the liver and spleen and other glandular or gastro-intestinal disorders.
It will be found of much service in jaundice when the condition is due to a thickening of the mucous membranes and a simple obstruction of the ducts. It is an excellent remedy to prevent or cure the tendency to this disorder.
