acts as a stimulating and relaxing diffusive nervine (nerve sedative) directly upon the unstriped muscles in order to provide greater muscular relaxation, as well as to overcome various muscular aches and pains; displays antispasmodic or spasmolytic properties in order to soothe and relieve any localized aches or pains, and exerts pressure upon the kidneys and bladder in order to remove any excessive uric acid accumulations associated with arthritic or rheumatic aches and pains in the various bones, muscles and joints; acts as an effective anodyne for relieving the dull, heavy, tensive, intermittent and aching pains associated with arthritis, rheumatism, gout, bursitis, lumbago, rheumatoid arthritis, and various forms of backache accompanied by extreme soreness within the muscular tissue (especially throughout the abdominal region and in the extensor and flexor muscles of the extremities); eases the severe aching and throbbing sensations within the deep muscle tissue of the upper or lower back region, and relieves any low back pains caused by pelvic (uterine or prostatic) dysfunctions; eliminates any rheumatic muscular or neurological aches and pains associated with gastralgia, enteralgia, tenesmic vesical pain, and various pains or aching sensations in the mediastina, orbits or ears, as well as any aches or pains associated with rheumatism of the uterus; removes the aching sensations associated with rheumatic or catarrhal colds, as well as the aching pains in those conditions involving lithemia or uric acid diathesis; alleviates the intense muscular aches and pains (abdominal or intestinal) associated with any acute infectious or non-infectious diseases (such as rheumatoid influenza), as well as the aching sensations in the musculature associated with the preliminary stages of any acute feverish conditions or acute inflammatory disorders; exhibits cytophylactic and cytotoxic activity in order to provide stronger cellular defense mechanisms against many physical or chemical agents, and displays anti-infective and disinfectant properties in order to promote increased resistance by destroying any invasive or harmful pathogenic bacteria, microbes or viruses that are often responsible for various infectious states or inflammatory conditions; exhibits bacteriostatic, microbicidal and viricidal activity in order to strengthen and increase the resistance in the bloodstream against any invasive or harmful bacteria or microbes, as well as to inhibit the further development of any infectious or inflammatory conditions; displays significant antiphlogistic activity in order to inhibit the formation of certain inflammatory compounds (such as histamine, leukotrienes, prostaglandin, serine proteases and thromboxanes), while reducing any severe inflammatory swelling associated with various aching or painful conditions by exerting an extremely positive influence towards correcting any blood vessel or tissue inflammation and various other internal inflammatory conditions; exhibits significant antiseptic activity by destroying the vitality of any organized living ferments in order to prevent the onset of putrefaction or septicemia, and precipitates the proteins in any inflamed tissues in order to provide a mildly antiseptic and protective coating (under which the regeneration of new tissue occurs) for the mucous membranes throughout the entire respiratory system; acts as an effective antiseptic in order to remove any septic conditions associated with tissue degeneration or ulceration, and promotes increased suppuration and a steady toning or restorative impression to the entire glandular system (especially the liver, spleen and lymph glands); exhibits anabolic activity in order to accelerate the production of DNA and RNA (which enhances the production of proteins in the form of antibodies), while increasing protein and lipid synthesis in the bone marrow and DNA/RNA content in the adrenals and lymph nodes (along with increased body weight and enhanced re-synthesis of glycogen and high-energy phosphate compounds); demonstrates powerful adaptogenic (balancing and strengthening) activity in order to increase the overall resistance of an organism towards any adverse influences or stressful conditions (whether they be physical, chemical or biological), especially throughout the immune system, bloodstream, musculature, and both the central (cerebro-spinal centers) and peripheral nervous systems; displays analgesic effects in those conditions involving muscular aches and pains caused by intercostal neuralgia, and removes both tensive and contractive aches and pains throughout the entire body caused by colds, the onset of fevers, muscular over-exertion, or rapid changes in various weather conditions; eliminates various forms of cephalalgia associated with congestion, rheumatic conditions or uterine dysfunctions, and eases any frontal or occipital headaches accompanied by a sensation of stiffness in the ocular or frontal muscles;

relieves any muscular aches or pains in the loins and thighs, as well as any aching sensations in the prostate gland; acts as a secretolytic stimulant in order to promote increased gastric, pancreatic or intestinal secretory and motor activity, and enhances greater peripheral circulation (due to its antioxidant activity); exhibits significant antioxidant effects in order to provide greater oxygen-transport capabilities throughout the bloodstream, as well as enhance the transport of additional oxygen directly into the cells and tissue-systems throughout the entire organism; acts as a circulatory stimulant by increasing the blood circulation in order to enhance greater nutrient transport, absorption and utilization, thereby accelerating the healing processes associated with the removal of any aching or painful conditions; demonstrates significant rejuvenative and restorative properties upon the basic plasma tissue-systems throughout the entire organism, thereby enhancing the production of vital bodily fluids while providing greater enrichment through increased assimilation of the various organic mineral salts; accelerates the recuperative processes that are essential in order to overcome any chronic degenerative or debilitative diseases or illnesses, while facilitating greater recovery response during convalescence in order to fully regain optimal health and well-being; activates the bodily processes of detoxification and elimination in order to cleanse and purify the bloodstream and tissue-systems, and increases the secretion and elimination of urine in order to provide further support to the inner cleansing process; displays alterative activity in order to correct any disordered bodily function, thereby activating increased alterations in both metabolic and tissue functions as a defensive measure against the onset of acute or chronic disease; exhibits restorative effects in order to regain increased vigor or vitality and greater strength, while enhancing normal tissue and metabolic functional capabilities; demonstrates alterative and restorative properties in order to re-establish healthy systemic functional capabilities, as well as to establish greater vascular tone throughout the entire organism (due to its ability to stimulate increased secretory flows); exhibits alterative effects in order to stimulate the anabolic growth processes, thereby enhancing the repair of any degenerated, deteriorated and debilitated cells or tissues (while promoting the elimination of any catabolic waste materials); displays tonifying effects in order to permanently enhance the overall energy-levels throughout the entire organism, without adversely affecting the functional capabilities of any particular organ or system.
