Madar Bark

(Calotropis)

Madura Album

Generals: Has been used with marked success in the treatment of syphilis following Mercurius solubilis (Hahnemanni)Merc; also, in elephantiasis, leprosy, and acute dysentery. Pneumonic phthisis. Tuberculosis. Increases the circulation in the skin; has powerful effects as a sudorific. In the secondary symptoms of syphilis, where Mercury has been used but cannot be pushed safely any farther, it rapidly recruits the constitution, heals the ulcers and blotches from the skin, and perfects the cure. Primary anaemia of syphilis. Heat in stomach is a good guiding symptom. Obesity, while flesh decreases, muscles become harder and firmer.
