Pharmacology

Medicinal Use

The herb is widely used as an external application to bruises, sore muscles, varicose veins, haemorrhoids, sore nipples, inflammations etc. The bark is used internally in the treatment of diarrhoea, colitis, dysentery, haemorrhoids, vaginal discharge, excessive menstruation, internal bleeding and prolapsed organs. The decoction of the bark is very useful in hemoptysis, hematemesis, and other hemorrhages, as well as in diarrhoea, dysentery, and excessive mucous discharges, with full, pale, and relaxed tissues. It may also be used as a wash or injection for sore mouth, painful tumors, external inflammations, bowel complaints, prolapsus ani and uteri, leucorrhoea, gleet, and ophthalmia. A homeopathic remedy is made from fresh bark for treating nosebleeds, piles and varicose veins. An infusion of the leaves is used to reduce inflammations, treat piles, internal haemorrhages and eye inflammations.

Contraindication

Excessive use, especially during lactation and pregnancy, should be avoided.
