(tinctura DESMODIUM ADSCENDENS)
from AMAZON HERBS®
Strong back or Amor seco (Desmodium adscendens) is a very powerful antispasmodic and muscle relaxant recommended for (lower) back pain, uncomplicated by disk degeneration.
Back problems are among the most painful, disabling common condition one can suffer. They're also among the least likely conditions to respond favorably to standard medical treatment, including drugs and surgery, often leaving physician and patient feeling helpless.
Desmodium is also effective against asthma and allergies.
It works better than analgesics such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID's) and it is not associated with the common side effects that these have.
It will not raise blood pressure or pulse rate.
Alkaloids, flavonoids (such as astragalin, cosmosin), soyasaponins (such as dehydrosoyasaponin), bioamine (tyramine).
The triterpenoid glycosides (and other phytochemicals such as beta-phenylethylamines and tetrahydroisoquinolines) found in Amor seco are very potent potassium channel agonists.
They activate the calcium-dependent potassium ion channels; when potassium ions cross the cell membranes, the tone in the smooth muscles is maintained.
The phytochemicals in the plant have no effects on the central nervous system, so drowsiness or impaired judgment does not occur.
Desmodium reduces anaphylactic contractions, interfere with histamine-induced contractions, and reduce the amount of smooth muscle stimulating substances released from lung tissue of guinea pigs.
Tincture: 3 - 6 ml. daily (3 - 6 full dropper) for all applications
Infusion (herbal tea): 1 - 3 cups daily (1 tea spoon / cup. Let simmer for 20 minutes)
Allergies, upper respiratory infections, asthma, bronchial spasms.
Clearing of the sinuses, congested nasal passages and helps to stop a stubborn cough after the flu.
The relaxation effect on the bronchials is fast.
1 - 3 cups / daily (1 teaspoon / 1 cup).
Use until condition improves (not longer than 2 weeks).
Muscle & tendon function
Back muscle spasms, torn muscles / tendons, herniated discs, surgery pain relief.
1 - 2 cups / daily (1 teaspoon / 1 cup).
Repeat if needed.
Hepatitis (viral toxic), minor hepatic dysfunctions, hepatic lesions from alcoholism and from chemotherapy.
In severe hepatic conditions Amor Seco helps to prevent cirrhosis and normalize trans - aminases.
Further: restores appetite and recovers from fatigue.
Reduction of nausea.
Dosage: 3 - 4 cups / day (1 teaspoon / cup) for 2 weeks.
Take on a empty stomach.
Evaluate after this and if beneficial, use for an additional month (10 - 15 days per month).
