CERVICAL POLYPS


For "Informational Use Only".
For more detailed information, contact your health care provider
about options that may be available for your specific situation.




BASIC INFORMATION


DESCRIPTION

Cervical polyps are small, fragile, bulbous or finger-like growths on stalks protruding through the cervix (lower third of the uterus) from the lining inside the uterus (endometrium) or on the surface of the cervix or endocervical canal. They may be single or numerous.

cervical Polyps


Polyps should not be confused with cervical cysts. Cysts are different than polyps. Cysts are filled with mucous from the glands of the cervix. They can get big enough to be felt as a soft round lump on the cervix with self exam. There is no need for treatment unless the cysts are large in size; then, a laser or freezing probe may be used for treatment. Often cysts go away without any treatment. An exam by a health care provider must be done if a cyst is suspected.





FREQUENT SIGNS & SYMPTOMS

Bleeding may be the only signs that these polyps are present. You would not be able to usually feel these during sex or self exam. Abnormal vaginal bleeding includes:

  • Unexpected spotting of blood between monthly menstrual periods.


  • Spotting of blood after sexual intercourse or bowel movements.


  • Abnormally heavy periods (menorrhagia).


  • Bleeding after menopause.


  • Vaginal discharge, usually a white or yellow mucous discharge (leukorrhea). Can appear as a watery, bloody discharge.


  • Polyps may not cause symptoms.


  • A pelvic exam reveals smooth, red or purple, finger-like projections from the cervical canal. A cervical biopsy typically reveals mildly atypical cells and signs of infection.





  • CAUSES

    Cervical polyps are caused by cervix inflammation and/or irritation from infection, erosion or ulceration. They grow from the tube part of the cervix. They frequently accompany chronic infections in the vagina or cervix, although they are not contagious. They may be an abnormal response to increased levels of estrogen, or clogged cervical blood vessels. The small growths are usually benign, but in very rare cases, they represent early cancer of the cervix.

    Cervical polyps are relatively common, especially in women over age 20 who have had children. Only a single polyp is present in most cases, but sometimes two or three are found. They are rare in females who have not started menstruating.





    RISK INCREASES WITH

  • Diabetes mellitus.


  • Recurrent vaginitis or cervicitis.


  • Pregnancy - They often occur during pregnancy because of hormonal changes.





  • PREVENTIVE MEASURES

    To prevent vaginal or cervix infections that can precede cervical polyps:
    • Wear cotton underpants or pantyhose with a cotton crotch to prevent accumulation of excess heat and moisture, which can make you susceptible to vaginal and cervical infections.


    • Avoid contracting sexually transmitted diseases by having your sexual partner wear a condom during intercourse. Any infections should be treated in a timely manner.





    EXPECTED OUTCOME

    Usually curable with minor surgery. They are usually easy to remove by your health care provider. You may feel brief, mild pain during the procedure and have mild to moderate cramps for several hours. Spotting of blood from the vagina may occur for 1 or 2 days. Cervical polyps may return in the future but are usually harmless in young women.

    After menopause, these harmless polyps are rare. If they occur in later life, they may be a sign of a serious medical problem. In this case, a closer exam, including a look within the uterus, would be necessary. These growths can be cancer.





    POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS

  • Bleeding and some mild pain with removal of the polyps.


  • In very rare instances, cervical polyps may become malignant. Infections may occur after removal.




  • TREATMENT


    GENERAL MEASURES

  • Surgery to remove cervical polyps with a wire share, electrocautery, laser, or liquid nitrogen may be used. Other methods may be a gently twisting of a cervical polyp to remove it or tying a surgical string around the base and cutting it off. This can often be done in a simple office outpatient procedure. The cervix may be cauterized after removing the polyp to prevent regrowth of the same or another polyp.


  • Do not douche unless it is recommended.


  • Use small sanitary pads to protect your clothing from creams or suppositories.


  • A polyp that accompanies cervicitis (inflammation or infection of the cervix) may require more extensive surgery.


  • Although most cervical polyps are non-cancerous (benign), the removed tissue should be sent to a laboratory for further examination.





  • MEDICATION

  • Usually no medications are necessary for this disorder, but because many polyps are infected, an antibiotic may be given after the removal, even if there are no or few signs of infection.





  • ACTIVITY

  • No restrictions. Delay sexual relations until a follow-up pelvic examination determines that healing is complete.





  • DIET

  • No special diet. Apricots, cantaloupe, mangos, carrots, pumpkins and yams contain beta-carotene and promote the health of mucous membranes. These fruits and vegetables also provide vitamin C, which fights infections that lead to the growth of polyps. Follow a well-balanced, nutritious diet to maintain good health.

    BUTCHERS BROOM PRODUCTS

    Butchers Broom is a laxative and diuretic and it is also used to improve circulation problems, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, arteriosclerosis, and blood clots. Butcher's Broom (Ruscus aculeatus) is also known as Box Holly, Jew's Myrtle, Kneeholm, Knee Holly, Pettigree, Sweet Broom, Rusci Aculeati, and Rusci Aculeati Rhizoma. Butcher's Broom is a low, shrubby, evergreen plant of the lily family. It is native to the Mediterranean, Southern Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. At one time its stems were used to protect curing meats from rodents and to make brooms for butcher’s stalls. Historically, western herbalists used it to improve circulation, relieve constipation, and help with water retention. It has been used in Eastern medicine to treat urinary and reproductive disorders. Culpepper reported in the 17th century that a decoction of the root (taken orally) and a poultice of the berries (applied topically) helped in knitting fractured bones. It contains ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, calcium, chromium, chrysophanic acid, magnesium, manganese, niacin, riboflavin, ruscogenin, rutin, selenium, tin, zinc. The parts used are the washed and dried root, chopped. Typical preparations include tea or extract. To make a tea from chopped root, place 1 teaspoon of the herb in a cup of boiling water and allow to steep in a closed teapot for 10 minutes. The teapot should not be heated. Strain before drinking. A mild diuretic, butchers broom was approved by the authoritative German Commission E as a supportive therapy and discomforts for chronic venous insufficiency, a condition causing pain and cramping in the legs, itching and swelling, and fatigue in the calves and as a supportive therapy for hemorrhoids (itching and burning), a condition closely related to varicose veins, due to its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to constrict small veins . Chronic venous insufficiency is related to varicose veins. Pliny the Elder in 60 C.E. noted that it was a treatment for the swelling of veins. Butcher's Broom In modern Europe, components in butchers broom have been isolated and used in formulas for the treatment of varicose veins and hemorrhoids. At least one clinical trial found that butchers broom may relieve lymph edema (arm swelling) following treatment for breast cancer. Clinical trials have shown the effectiveness of Butcher's Broom in treating chronic phlebopathy of the lower limbs and those suffering from varicose veins. In these trials, an extract was used. An extract of Butcher's Broom combined with flavonoid derivatives have been shown to benefit patients with diabetes, by lowering cholesterol levels and improving glucose tolerance. Butcher's Broom has also been used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, circulatory disorders, edema, swollen ankles, Meniere's disease (vertigo accompanied by ringing in the ears and deafness), obesity, Raynauds disease (skin discoloration because an abnormal spasm of the blood vessels causes a diminished blood supply), thrombophlebitis (inflammation of a vein cause by or associated with the formation of a blood clot), and vertigo. It is also good for treating bladder and kidney problems. Butcher's Broom comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products.

    A standard oral dosage should supply 5 to 10 mg of ruscogenin daily. For treating hemorrhoids, Butcher's Broom can be applied in the form of an ointment or as a suppository. A decoction of the root is the usual form of administration, and it is still considered of use in jaundice and gravel. The decoction, sweetened with honey, is said to clear the chest of phlegm and relieve difficult breathing. One pint of boiling water to 1 ounce of the twigs, or 1/2 ounce of the bruised fresh root has also been recommended as an infusion, which may be taken as tea. 1/2 teaspoon of powder is about equal to one capsule. Powder can be consumed by sprinkling it over your food or mixing it with a syrup such as maple or chocolate. You could also mix it with orange juice. The citric acid in the orange juice will help to mask any unpleasant powder tastes. This herb is more effective when taken in conjunction with vitamin C. It is important to read product label directions before use.Precautions: Maximum safe doses for young children, pregnant or nursing women, and persons with liver or kidney disease have not been established. Rare cases of gastric disorders and nausea have occurred.

    CINNAMON PRODUCTS

    Cinnamon bark is warming to the body, an analgesic, carminative, antiseptic, and antibacterial. Cinnamon is one of the most recognizable of flavors in the world, and has been used at one time or another in just about every type of food product available, as well as the flavoring for a great many pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. The German Commission E recommended cinnamon for treating the loss of appetite, as well as gastronomical complaints including cramps, flatulence, and nausea. Cinnamons beneficial effects on the digestive tract are attributed to its antioxidant catechins, which may also help fight bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections. Cassia bark has been used for over a thousand years in both Eastern and Western medicine in treating chronic diarrhea, colds, kidney trouble, abdominal and heart pains, hypertension, and even cancer , among others. The difference between sweet cinnamon and cassia cinnamon is quite apparent; sweet cinnamon quills will have a layered look to them, as if several were rolled together, while cassia will appear as one thick piece of bark. Sweet cinnamon is also lighter in color, and as the name implies, of a sweeter flavor. Due to its incredible value, sweet cinnamon was used for centuries as a spice of the aristocracy and the wealthy. It is obviously readily available to everyone nowadays. During the middle ages it was used as a meat preservative due to its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal qualities, but also so that it could mask the stench of "aged" meats much better than salt. When choosing cinnamon for your own use, be forewarned that the quills of cassia are next to impossible to grind, the flavor usually being extracted by boiling. Sweet cinnamon quills are much easier to use in any recipe and quite easy to grind for use. Most everyone knows the virtues of uses cinnamon in baking, but there are a great many other uses that are being rediscovered, or invented everyday. Cinnamon sticks are used in some cocktails as a stick to stir the drink, as well as being added to a traditional mulled wine recipe. Middle Eastern and Asian recipes make liberal use of cinnamon in their main dishes, curries, stews, biriyanis, and as a marinade for beef and lamb. A cinnamon tea also makes a wonderful digestive aid after dinner, and cinnamon sticks can even be used in pickling as something new to spice up an old recipe. Precautions: It has been noted by the German Commission E that some people are in fact allergic to cinnamon, with side effects ranging from an allergic skin reactions to mucosa. It is not recommended for medicinal uses during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Cinnamaldehyde is a constituent that has been studied in both plant species, but is higher in the true cinnamon. A 2006 study implied that it may be the cinnamaldehyde that is responsible for the activity of Cinnamon. Both cinnamaldehyde and eugenol are responsible for cinnamon's potent antioxidant abilities. Eugenol is the same constituent found in cloves that accounts for it having the highest Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) of all food-borne substances. Therefore, true cinnamon is a superior antioxidant by this assumption.

    FENUGREEK PRODUCTS

    Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is also known as Alholva, Bird's Foot, Bockshornklee, Bockshornsame, Chandrika, Foenugraeci Semen, Foenugreek, Greek Clover, Greek Hay, Greek Hay Seed, Hu Lu Ba, Medhika, Methi, and Trigonella. The name fenugreek comes from the Latin term Foenum-graecum, or Greek hay, the plant being used to scent moldy hay. The genus name, Trigonella, is derived from another Greek name denoting "three-angled," from the shape of the "crown" around the seed. Ancient Roman medicine used fenugreek as an aid to male potency. Fenugreek is one of the base ingredients in curry powder and is used extensively in cooking throughout Asia. It is also used as a base for perfumes, soaps, and lotions. In Java, fenugreek is used as a hair tonic and to help cure baldness. It was first introduced into Chinese medicine in the Sung dynasty (circa 1057 C.E.) where it was used for treating kidney complaints, hernia, impotence, and other male related problems. Fenugreek constituents are Arginine, beta-carotene, beta-sitosterol, coumarin, diosgenin, fiber, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), kaempferol, luteolin, magnesium, manganese, niacin, potassium, pyridoxine, quercetin, riboflavin, rutin, sulfur, thiamine, trigonelline, tryptophan, vitexin, vitamin C, and zinc. The fruit or "seeds," dried and used whole or ground are used. Typical preparations include seeds used in cooking. Usually encapsulated for medicinal use, since the seeds are bitter. Up to 3-1/2 ounces (100 g) of the seeds can be eaten in a single meal without gastrointestinal side effects, but greater amounts provide too much fiber for most people. Also taken as an extract. In the nineteenth century, Arab physicians would prepare a paste of fenugreek seeds soaked in water as a food for diabetics. Research in the 1990's found that adding an extract equivalent to 1-3 tablespoons of fenugreek seeds to the daily diet of diabetics significantly lowered blood sugars, HbA1C, triglycerides, and total cholesterol while raising HDL ("good") cholesterol?but most North Americans, Australians, and Europeans would find the bitter taste difficult. Encapsulated forms are most easily tolerated. Poultices of fenugreek seeds are a traditional remedy for furuncles, boils, and eczema. Currently, its major use in the US is in imitation maple syrups. The German E commission currently lists it as a way to stimulate the appetite. If you wish to use fenugreek to lower blood sugars, it is better to use the powder rather than the whole seed. The powder releases more vanadium as it is digested. Avoid fenugreek if you are allergic to chickpeas, and Fenugreek should not be taken medicinally when pregnant, however moderate use in food should be fine.

    GINGER PRODUCTS

    Ginger (Zingiber officinale; Gan Jiang) has been used safely for thousands of years in a wide range of Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese herbal formulas that benefit the stomach and promote digestive function. Ginger is also used in these formulas as an agent to carry or reinforce the actions of other digestive herbs. It is considered to be a warming herb as it enhances circulation and absorption. Ginger is essential for the reduction and frequency of morning sickness, upset stomach, seasickness, and motion sickness. It is also used expel gas (relieving flatulent colic) from the intestines and to help reduce fevers and lessen symptoms of colds. It is soothing to the digestive tract. Ginger tea can be made by slicing the fresh root into small pieces and added to hot water or milk to steep. It has a slightly "spicy" flavor to it. Ginger can be obtained in candied pieces and popped in your mouth if you are having indigestion problems. Scientific studies have shown Ginger to be an effective treatment for nausea and motion sickness. It is also used as a treatment for atherosclerosis, migraine headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, high cholesterol, burns, ulcers, depression, impotence, and liver toxicity. Chinese herbalists prescribe Ginger tea at the onset of a cold to ward off infection. Ginger has also been used as a treatment for Raynaud's disease, sciatica, seborrhea, sore throat, swelling, tendinitis, toothache, ulcers, viral infections. Ginger stimulates the circulation and helps blood flow to the surface, making it an important remedy for chilblains and poor circulation to the hands and feet. By improving the circulation, Ginger helps reduce high blood pressure. Ginger also increases sweating and helps reduce fever. A standard dose for most purposes is 1 to 4 grams of powdered Ginger taken daily in 2 to 4 divided doses. Prepare a dose of ginger infusion by taking 10 to 30 grains or 1 ounce of ginger powder or bruised root and adding it to a pint of boiling water, take 1 or 2 fluid ounces at a time. In acute colds the entire train of symptoms may be aborted in a single night, by advising the patient to take a hot mustard foot bath at bedtime, while the body, prepared for bed, is wrapped in warm blankets. During the foot bath the patient should drink a glass or two of hot water, each of which contains half of a dram of the tincture of ginger. To prevent motion sickness, begin treatment 1 or 2 days before the trip, and continue taking it throughout the travel period. Make Ginger tea from the boiled Ginger root as a remedy for nausea associated with pregnancy. Chilled, carbonated, and sweetened Ginger tea is the original form of ginger ale, the famous anti-nausea beverage. Powdered Ginger can be used in the tea instead of the root.

    GINGER TEA RECIPE

    4 cups of water 2 inch piece of fresh ginger root optional: honey and lemon. Peel the ginger root and slice it into thin slices. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Once it is boiling, add the ginger. Cover it and reduce to a simmer for 15-20 minutes. Strain the tea. Add honey and lemon to taste. Note: Keep in mind that if you are making this tea to strengthen the immune system and ward off colds and flu, sweeteners are not recommended. Ginger milk can be done the same way, substituting milk for water. This is good for warming the system up after being in the cold and is soothing to the stomach too. I often made ginger milk after shoveling snow off the sidewalk and needing to be warmed up. You could also add a dash of cinnamon, if desired to the ginger milk.


    Ginger Safety & Interaction Information: There are no known safety issues associated with using Ginger. Some people may be sensitive to the taste and experience heartburn. If you are taking anti-coagulants, it is best to consult with your health care provider before using Ginger for the treatment of your condition. Those with a history of gallstones should consult a nutritionist or health care provider before using Ginger. If taking Ginger before a surgery, it is best to inform the anesthesiologist you are on Ginger.

    MUSTARD SEED PRODUCTS

    Brown Mustard (Brassica nigra) is also known as black mustard, Chinese mustard, and Indian mustard. Brassica integrifolia and Brassica juncea have similar taste and medicinal properties and are also sold as brown mustard. Yellow Mustard (Sinapsis alba) is also known as White Mustard and simply Mustard. Strictly speaking, the Brassica nigra often sold as brown mustard is a "black" mustard. The reason it is called "brown" is that the other species of black mustard are difficult to harvest and are seldom available in commerce. Brown mustard is a flowering plant in the same family as arugula, horseradish, watercress, and wasabi. It shares with them a hot and pungent group of chemicals known as isothiocyanates. The isothiocyanates act as defense system against grazing animals by releasing burning chemicals when the plant is chewed. They destroy animal tissues. They would also destroy the tissues of the plant except that they are stored in a form that is only activated when the plant is disturbed. Most people would be surprised to learn that yellow mustard is not yellow. The white herb powder is made yellow in the prepared condiment by the addition of turmeric. Dijon mustard is the condiment without the turmeric but with a relatively high concentration of mustard flour, Bordeaux mustard contains vinegar, sugar, and tarragon, and Meaux mustard is made with from mustard seeds that have been crushed rather than ground. The word mustard comes from the Latin "mustum ardems" meaning "burning must," or a spicy combination of mustard (burning) and freshly squeezed grape juice (must). Yellow mustard is a flowering plant in the same family as brown or black mustard, wasabi, watercress, horseradish, and arugula, sharing a hot and pungent group of chemicals known as isothiocyanates. The isothiocyanates act as defense system against grazing animals by releasing burning chemicals when the plant is chewed. They destroy animal tissues, and they would also destroy the tissues of the plant except that they are stored in the plant in a different form that is only activated when the plant is disturbed.Mustard can be made from whole seeds or the pre-ground seeds, called mustard flour. Making mustard form the whole seeds takes time because the seeds have to soak as the distinctly "mustardy" flavor matures over several days. Mustard made from mustard flour is nearly instant but very hot. Mustard made from the pre-ground seeds, called mustard flour, is nearly instant. It is also quite hot. Like all seeds, brown mustard seed contains large amounts of oil. The term "mustard oil" can refer to the expressed oil, used in cooking, or to an extract of the flavoring principles, the isothiocyanates. Brown mustard seed contains about 1 percent sinigrin (allylglucosinolate), which is converted to the hot and pungent allyl isothiocyanate by the action of the enzyme myrosinase. Yellow mustard contains more fiber and less oil than brown mustard. Like brown mustard, it contains about 1 percent sinigrin (allylglucosinolate), which is converted to the hot and pungent allyl isothiocyanate by the action of the enzyme myrosinase. The parts used are the whole or ground seed for both the brown and the yellow mustard plant. This is the herb most frequently used in mustard plasters. The ancient Greeks and Romans used brown mustard seed as a bath additive to treat arthritic pain. The herb is also used whole in cooking or ground in other medicinal and culinary preparations. Mustard is usually mixed with water, vinegar, wine, or with other juices. It may also be added to food, pickling spices, and is seldom found encapsulated. Mustard plasters relieve swelling by increasing circulation near the surface of the skin. They relieve pain by acting as a counter-irritant, "distracting" the central nervous system from pain of other origins. The "burn" of a hot mustard plaster stimulates breathing by activating a pathway fro the skin to the lungs through the central nervous system. Mustard seed plasters are most appropriate for a relatively strong person suffering congestion or swelling; they should not be used on anyone who is confined to bed over a period of months or years. Dr. James Duke, who, in his seventies, still has a full head of hair, notes that mustard plasters were used in frontier American medicine not only to treat chest congestion but also to prevent baldness. Ground brown mustard seed added to food inhibits spoilage by slowing the growth of E. coli, including the more dangerous O:157 strain of the bacterium. Brown mustard seed sprouts have their greatest antioxidant content on the fifth day after germination. Before there were lavatories, surgeons cleaned their hands with mustard. Yellow mustard can be used like brown mustard but for a milder effect. Yellow mustard seed powder is "hotter" than the whole seed. Mustard plasters relieve swelling by increasing circulation near the surface of the skin. They relieve pain by acting as a counter-irritant, "distracting" the central nervous system from pain of other origins. The "burn" of a hot mustard plaster stimulates breathing by activating a pathway fro the skin to the lungs through the central nervous system. Mustard seed plasters are most appropriate for a relatively strong person suffering congestion or swelling; they should not be used on anyone who is confined to bed over a period of months or years. Yellow mustard is a mild laxative if eaten in large quantities. Do not get ground mustard seed in your eyes. If you do, immediately rinse with warm (not hot or cold) tap water.

    THUJA - YELLOW CEDAR PRODUCTS

    Yellow Cedar (Thuja occidentalis) is also known as Tree of Life. Arbor Vitae. American Arbor Vitae. Cedrus Lycea. Western Arbor Vitae. False White Cedar. Hackmatack. Thuia du Canada. Lebensbaum. The parts used are the recently-dried, leafy young twigs. It is found in North America, from Pennsylvania northward. It is the tallest of this species of Conifer rarely grows above 30 feet high. These trees have regular, graceful conical forms that make them valuable as highhedge trees, and they also take easily any other shape to which they may be clipped. The leaves are of two kinds on different branchlets, one awl-shaped and the other short and obtuse. Both have a small, flattened gland, containing a thin, fragrant turpentine. They are persistent, and overlap in four rows. The flowers are very small and terminal, and the cones nodding first ovoid and then spreading, with blunt scales arranged in three rows. The name Thuja is a latinized form of a Greek word meaning 'to fumigate,' or thuo ('to sacrifice'), for the fragrant wood was burnt by the ancients with sacrifices. The tree was described as 'arbor vita ' by Clusius, who saw it in the royal garden of Fontainebleau after its importation from Canada. It was introduced into Britain about 1566. In America the wood is much used for fencing and palings, as a light roofing timber, and, as it is both durable and pliable, for the ribs and bottom of bark boats, and also for limekilns, bowls, boxes, cups, and small articles of furniture. The fresh branches are much used in Canada for besoms, which have a pleasing scent. The odour is pungent and balsamic and the taste bitter, resembling camphor and terebinth. The trees grow well on the western coast hills of Britain, and the wood is soft, finely grained, and light in texture. The bitter principle is Pinipicrin, and the tannic acid, said to be identical with Pinitannic acid, occur also in Pinus sylvestris. Thuja also contains volatile oil, sugar, gelatinous matter, wax, resin, and Thujin. The last is a citron-yellow, crystallizable colouring principle, soluble in alcohol. It has an astringent taste, is inflammable, and can be split up into glucose, Thujigenin and Thujetin (probably identical with Quercitin). The leaves and twigs are said to yield also a camphor-like essential oil, specific gravit of 0.925, boiling point 190-206 degrees C., easily soluble in alcohol and containing pinene, fenchone, thujone, and perhaps carvone. A yellow-green volatile oil can be distilled from the leaves and used as a vermifuge. Its medicinal action and uses include aromatic, astringent, and diuretic. The twigs may produce abortion, like those of savin, by reflex action on the uterus from severe gastrointestinal irritation. Both fenchone and thujone stimulate the heart muscle. The decoction has been used in intermittent fevers, rheumatism, dropsy, coughs, scurvy, and as an emmenagogue. The leaves, made into an ointment with fat, are a helpful local application in rheumatism. An injection of the tincture into venereal warts is said to cause them to disappear. For violent pains the Canadians have used the cones, powdered, with four-fifths of Polypody, made into a poultice with lukewarm water or milk and applied to the body, with a cloth over the skin to prevent scorching. The dosage of fluid extract is 1/4 drachm, three to six times a day, as stimulating expectorant and diuretic. The infusion of 1 ounce to a pint of boiling water is taken cold in tablespoonful doses. Poisons: The oil, resembling camphor, may produce convulsions in warmblooded and paralysis in cold-blooded animals. Sixteen drops of the oil, taken by a girl of fifteen, caused unconsciousness, followed by spasms and convulsions, with subsequent stomachic irritation. It causes great flatulence and distension of the stomach.

    BIOFLAVONOID PRODUCTS

    Bioflavonoids are not true vitamins in the strictest sense, sometimes being referred to as vitamin P, and may be found in herbal plants, fruits, nuts and bark; and because they cannot be manufactured by the body, they must be supplied through the diet. The letter ''P'' represents permeability factor, and it was given to this group of nutrients because they improve capillary strength and permeability. Citrus Bioflavonoids are a class of flavonoids that includes Rutin, Hesperidin, Quercitin, Eriodictyl and Citron, and they are essential for the absorption of vitamin C, which should be taken simultaneously, so they may act synergistically for maximum benefit. Citrus fruits are well known for providing ample amounts of vitamin C, but they also provide Citrus Bioflavonoids, which are located in the white material just beneath the peel of citrus fruits and may be found in grapefruits, lemons, tangerines, limes and oranges. Other sources of bioflavonoids include apricots, nuts, peppers, buckwheat, blackberries, black currants cherries, grapes, plums, prunes and rose hips. In addition, several herbs also provide bioflavonoids, including Chervil, Elderberry, Hawthorne Berry, Horsetail and Shepherd's Purse.

    Citrus Bioflavonoids Powder - Approximately 600 mg. each capsule. 1/2 teaspoon of powder is about equal to one capsule.

    RUTIN BIOFLAVONOID PRODUCTS

    Rutin is a bioflavonoid, and it provides essential support molecules for vitamin C absorption (and should, in fact, be taken at the same time to gain maximum benefit). Rutin supplementation prevents the breakdown of vitamin C in the body before it is metabolized and intensifies its beneficial immune-enhancing effects in the body. With regard to eye health, the bioflavonoid, Rutin, is said to improve capillary integrity and believed to help lower ocular pressure when used in conjunction with conventional drugs. (Bilberry extract is particularly rich in Rutin and can be beneficial in cases of diabetic retinopathy.) Rutin may be very helpful in combating cataracts, macular degeneration (the most common cause of blindness) and free radical damage to the retina. The antioxidant activity that fights free radical damage appears to play a role in the prevention of cataracts and other forms of visual impairment. Because Rutin improves capillary integrity (it works synergistically with vitamin C in this regard) by protecting and preserving the structure (permeability) and strength of those capillaries, this action is said to be of great help for capillary fragility (easy bruising and bleeding) and venous insufficiency (varicose veins and spider veins). Because Rutin strengthens capillaries, it may be helpful in reducing the symptoms of hemophilia. The bioflavonoid, Rutin, is thought to lessen symptoms associated with prolonged bleeding and help in cases of bleeding gums and hemorrhage.

    Vitamin E Succinate takes vitamin E's antioxidant action a step further. Succinate feeds directly into the Krebs cycle, our major metabolic pathway for generating energy. This extra dimension from succinate significantly extends the protective properties of vitamin E. Then why not have E as succinate in all antioxidant formulations? Because it is not strictly hypoallergenic. E succinate is prepared from a soy-source vitamin E. However, the amounts of residual soy antigens in this product are very small. For those who do not have a soy sensitivity, Vitamin E succinate offers an exciting new dimension of the Vitamin E effect.
