ANGINA

2010

Russian folk practitioners have always treated angina pectoris with an infusion of HAWS (a glassful three times a day at meals). In Germany, the infusion in alcohol is considered to be the only effective cure for angina. LADY’S SMOCK is sometimes combined with the infusion of haws. To what purpose, one wonders? Here in Wiltshire a tea made from haws is said to be good for heart disorders, for it helps to prevent arteriosclerosis. Herbalists warn, though, that the effect is only noticeable after a prolonged course of treatment. In China, CASSIA twigs have been used to improve blood circulation, and also to treat angina, as did the heartwood of SANDALWOOD, from which Oil of Santal is also made.
