Action: White Willow bark and Meadowsweet herb both contain the natural glycoside, salicin, which has a very similar chemistry to aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid). Salicin also has the same antipyretic (fever reducing), anti-inflammatory, and analgesic (pain relieving) properties as aspirin.
Uses: This compound can give relief from many kinds of pain, and often is able to eliminate some pains completely. Indicated in neuralgia, myalgia, enteralgia and visceralgia, headache, toothache, arthritis, lumbago, sciatica, painful spasms, pain of physical injuries, painful hemorrhoids, tic-douloureux, dysmenorrhœa (painful menstruation), etc.
Although this compound often works well, it can only do so much with severe pain, and stronger analgesics may be necessary.
Dose: Adults: Three to five times per day, take 30 to 40 drops in a little water.
Topical: Massage into painful area until well absorbed. May sting when applied to broken skin.
Cautions: Severe or constant pain can itself be damaging to health. Also, pain can often be indicative of a serious health problem. If pain is severe or persistent, and especially if it’s accompanied with high or persistent fever or other adverse symptoms, promptly seek qualified healthcare.
