Traditionally used for heart problems, Crataegus oxyacantha serves as the perfect example of how a bud can incorporate all the properties of the whole plant. It possesses both the calming properties of the flowers (cardiac rhythm, tension) and the tonic influence of the fruit on the heart muscle.
The macerate has a positive inotropic and chronotropic action. Detoxifies the heart & reinforces the contractibility of the heart. A sedative for the central nervous system. The actions are predominantly at the repolarisation phase of the heartbeat normalising the S-T space. The cardiac remedy by excellence, cardiotonic by systolic fortification, slowing down the heart rate, coronarian vasodilatator, mild hypotensor, sympathetic regulator, antispasmodic. Antithrombotic (dissolves plaque). It also has hormonal, digestive and pulmonary properties.
It intervenes in any degenerative disease leading to tissue sclerosis.Clinical conditions:
Cardiovascular system: at the circulatory level Crataegus oxyacantha bud has an arterial antisclerotic action and works as a heart drainer. Great remedy for functional arrhythmias (distressing extrasystoles, tachycardias), cardiac erythrism, heart failure, precordial pain, sequelae after infarction. Because of its bi-polar activity, it is a blood pressure regulator (hypertension / hypotension).
In myocardium insufficiencies, Crataegus oxyacantha reinforces the contractile force of the heart. It is also indicated in the late effects of infarction, (angina pectoris), tired heart, precordial anxiety (useful as a cardiac sedative).
Nervous system: Crataegus oxyacantha bud is a sedative of the central nervous system. Therefore it acts as an anxiolytic, having sympatholytic properties while balancing the vago-sympathetic nerve. Therefore, it plays a role in the treatment of existential depression and insomnia.
Endocrine system: Hyperthyroidism (cardiac symptoms).
Digestive system: Helps to regulate compulsive eating trends leading to obesity.
Respiratory system: It calms non-allergic dyspnea of intrinsic origin.
Other: Obesity by regulation of the nervous system.
