REMEDY OF THE DAY: ARUM TRIPHYLLUM

Common names.- Wake robin. Jack in the Pulpit, Dragon root

Part used: Dried root

Copperthwaite writes:  Arum acts especially upon the mucous membrane of the mouth and fauces, and to some extent upon the larynx and bronchi, producing violent inflammation, tumefaction, and ulceration.

Boericke:  Arisaema triphyllumArum maculatum, Italicum, Dracontium, have the same action as the Triphyllum. They all contain an irritant poison, causing inflammation of mucous surfaces and destruction of tissue. Acridity is the keynote of the kind of action characteristic of Arum.
