Indian Tobacco Pure Herbs Liquid Extract is perhaps the most serviceable, responsible and reliable herb of the herbal kingdom. It is a wonder systems regulator, and as Dr. John Christopher remarked it is one of the "thinking" herbs. It has the power to coordinate, direct and assist the use of other herbs or act alone, which makes it an herb of much leverage.
Its usefulness has encouraged much jealously from the physicians of lesser ability. Doctors who did not recognize its true properties branded it as poisonous. It is seen historically, in active practice, that placed under the tongue will within seconds or minutes (in severe cases), stop spasms, convulsions, and asthmatic attacks. With use, it easily directs itself and the other herbs to handle the body's condition needing help first and the lesser conditions next.
It may be rubbed on the chest and spine when it cannot be taken by mouth. In those cases where Indian Tobacco Pure Herbs Liquid Extract does not empty the stomach, since it is an antispasmodic, the emesis (throwing up) of putrid material, does not even cause bruising.
Indian Tobacco will not act as an emetic (stomach pump) unless an emetic is necessary, and then it will act strongly upon the putrid stomach, to empty it without bruising. When rubbed across the entire abdominal area, it can help relieve any associated, painful gass.
Indian Tobacco is very helpful in food poisoning, since it is an antagonist to poison, whether animal or vegetable in origin. Indian Tobacco is at once, both tranquilizing and energizing. This is a peculiar concept, but experience has proven it to be true.
For relief of menstrual cramping or relief of "Charlie horse" (painful cramp in leg muscle) or any muscular cramping, apply liberally to the area and quickly rub in. When externally applied, please use a good quality extract, not a water one for the action to be accomplished.
Recommoneded Dosage: One to twenty drops, one drop at a time on the tongue. (First brush a little Peppermint Oil on the tongue if sensitive stomach). Externally, use as much as is required.
Directions on label: For adults, mix 2 ml of extract in 2 oz (60 ml) of water one time daily preferably with a meal.
