History: First developed by Eclectic physicians in the mid-1800s, this remedy was used by American physicians until its use faded (along with all herbal medicines) in the 1940s.
Action: Agreeable antacid and antidiarrheal. A mild laxative (in large doses). Tones and soothes stomach and intestines and promotes normal action. Stimulates appetite. Carminative (relieves flatulence).
Uses: Indicated in fermentative and irritating conditions of the stomach and intestine: sour stomach, burning belches or vomiting; indigestion, especially with decomposed food; sour, fermented stools; watery or irritating diarrhea, diarrhea of undigested food, children's summer diarrhea, traveler's diarrhea, and dysentery; mucoenteritis. In large doses it acts as a soothing laxative that is especially indicated to cleanse the intestinal tract of sour, decomposed materia. Neutralizing Cordial's agreeable Peppermint and Cinnamon flavor, and its mild action, make it an ideal remedy for children in the above conditions.
Dose: As a soothing corrective, take 40 to 80 drops (1 to 2 one-ounce droppers), two to four times per day. For more severe diarrhea drops can be taken every 1/2-hour, hour, or 2 hours. As a mild laxative, usually a tablespoonful diluted in a cup of water is sufficient to clear intestines.
Children: Adjust above adult doses according to child�s body weight (see Clark�s Rule, pg. 149).
Adjunct Therapy: For severe diarrhea add 30 to 40 drops of Wild Geranium Extract to above doses. For extreme lack of stomach or intestinal tone add 30 to 40 drops of Prickly Ash Extract or 15 to 20 drops of Cayenne Extract to the above doses. For sharp colicky pains add 30 to 40 drops of Ginger Extract to the above doses.
Children: Adjust above adult doses according to child�s body weight (see Clarks Rule).
Cautions: Consult a qualified midwife or physician before taking during pregnancy. Some of the above conditions could indicate serious health problems that require treatment by a qualified healthcare practitioner -- especially if there is fever, blood in the stool, or other symptoms that are severe or persistent. Large or laxative doses should not be used for more than three days, and should be avoided during pregnancy or if there is abdominal pain or diarrhea.
