Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Rumex Crispus in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.

  GENERAL - Rumex Crispus


Is characterized by pains, numerous and varied, neither fixed nor constant anywhere. Cough caused by an incessant tickling in the throat-pit, which tickling runs down to the bifurcation of the bronchial tubes. Touching the throat-pit brings on the cough. Worse from the least cold air; so that all cough ceases by covering up all the body and head with the bedclothes. Rumex Acetosa Rumex diminishes the secretions of mucous membranes, and at the same time exalts sensibility of the mucous membranes of the larynx and trachea. Rumex Crispus's action upon the skin is marked, producing an intense itching. Lymphatics enlarged and secretions perverted.
