Pain shoots up the spine and down limbs.
Injuries to finger tips or toes.
Needle or splinter, under nail, in finger or
foot sole (Ledum). Convulsions after injury,
esp. to spine, head (Nat-s).
In women, it is very useful for
after-pains after instrumental delivery in childbirth and for a bruised coccyx
Poem About Hypericum
Hypericum, I've given you
To those with shooting pains
You really have a way with nerves
With injuries you're famed
Consider it for punctures
Where nerves are passing through
It may be used for Tetanus
Preventing it to brew
I find it interesting to note
St. John's Wort is now the rage
For depression it is taken
The tincture of our age
Depression follows injury
This is often true
And if the pain shoots up the limb
Hypericum's for you!
