White Ash. N. O. Oleaceae. Tincture of the bark.
Clinical.-Uterus, affections of; prolapse of. Uterus, tumours of.
Characteristics.-Fraxinus has had a fragmentary proving, but the chief clinical authority for its use is Dr. Burnett, who regards it as a uterine tonic in all heavy states of the uterus with prolapse, bearing-down, and relaxed ligaments. He calls it "the medicinal pessary." I have repeatedly verified his indications. It is an organ-remedy of the first rank. It is also indicated in uterine tumours, especially fibroids, with bearing-down sensations.
Relations.-Compare: Sepia, Lil. t., Nat. hyperchlor., Secale, Hydrast.
