G54 Equisetum arvense, Horsetail Young shoots, 50ml


Description: Gemmotherapy, Horsetail Young shoots, 50ml

  • Urinary/genital – powerful diuretic, does not spare potassium
  • Astringent, for bleeding and leucorrhea
  • Musculoskeletal – Bone, ligaments/tendons, cartilage, connective tissue
  • Skin – collagen

Therapeutic actions:

Equisetum arvense is a plant with astringent properties and is recommended as a remedy to stop bleeding.

The plant’s mineralising actions in healing bones and strengthening connective tissue are thought to be due to silicic acid. Silica is also important in bone structure by promoting the fixation and the maintenance of calcium inside the bone. It also has anti-inflammatory and restructuring properties (tendonitis / muscular tear / articular prosthetic surgery).

It also has diuretic properties and increases the urinary volume (a key remedy in weight loss programs).

It is also a vascular protector – Silica promotes the proliferation of elastic fibers (maintains the elasticity of arteries/veins).

Clinical conditions:

Musculoskeletal: Osteoporosis, consolidation of fractures, anti-inflammatory / anti-rheumatism, muscular tear, tendonitis.

Urogenital: Urinary lithiasis, cystitis, urethritis, dysuria, hematuria, incontinence, and bedwetting in children, menorrhea, leucorrhea, edema, hydropsy, prostate enlargement.

Circulatory: Hemostatic (hemorrhoids/nose bleeds).

Digestive: Diarrhea, hematemesis.

Respiratory: Hemoptysis, degeneration of pulmonary tissues, tuberculosis.

Other: Alopecia, stretch marks, eczema, acne, skin eruptions (with and without itching), wound healing, and aging skin (builds collagen).

Consider in combination with:

Cedrus libani, for dry eczema, itchy skin conditions

Ilex aquifolium, if fissures are present

Olea europaea, for scarring

Rubus fructicosus, Alnus incana, Pinus montana, Vaccinium vitis-idaea, for osteoporosis

Fraxinus excelsior, for gout

Rubus idaeus, for heavy menses

Abies alba, Pinus Montana, Betula pubescens, for bone breaks and fractures

Clinical experience:

Digitalis – Digitoxin: Do not use conjointly (may cause a loss of potassium due to its diuretic action – increasing the risk of digitalis toxicity)

Equisetum arvense: High dosage may cause symptoms of nicotine overdose. Its use is proscribed for smokers and people using nicotine patches or

Lithium: Be prudent when using conjointly with Lithium (allopathic), the diuretic action of the Horsetail may affect serum concentrations of the medication, therefore, causing a risk of intoxication.
