ALFALFA
Medicago Sativa, California Clover or Lucerne


From its action on the sympathetic, Alfalfa favorably influences nutrition, evidenced in "toning up" the appetite and digestion resulting in greatly improved mental and physical vigor, with gain in weight. Disorders characterized by malnutrition are mainly within its therapeutic range, for example, neurasthenia, splanchnic blues, nervousness, insomnia, nervous indigestion, etc. Acts as a fat producer, corrects tissue waste. Deficient lactation. Increases quality and quantity of milk in nursing mothers. Its pronounced urinary action suggests it clinically in diabetes insipidus and phosphaturia; and it is claimed to allay vesical irritability of prostatic hypertrophy. The rheumatic diathesis seems especially amenable to its action.

Mind.--It induces mental exhilaration of buoyancy, i.e, a general feeling of well being; clear and bright, so that all blues are dissipated. Dull, drowsy, stupid (Gels); gloomy and irritable, worse during evening.

Head.--Dull, heavy feeling in occiput, in and above the eyes, worse toward evening. Pain in left side of head. Violent headache.

Ears.--Stuffed feeling in eustachian tubes (Kali mur) at night; patulous in morning.

Stomach.--Increased thirst. Appetite impaired, but chiefly increased even to bulimia. He must eat frequently, so that he cannot wait for regular meals; hungry in forenoon (Sul). Much nibbling of food and craving for sweets.

Abdomen.--Flatulence with distention. Shifting, flatulent pain along colon several hours after meals. Frequent, loose, yellow, painful stools, with burning of flatulence. Chronic appendicitis.

Urine.--Kidneys inactive; frequent urging to urinate. Polyuria (Phos ac). Increased elimination of urea, indican and phosphates.

Sleep.--Slept better than usual, especially in early morning; it induces quiet, reposeful and refreshing sleep.

Relationship.--Compare: Avena sat; Dipodium punct; Gels; Hydr; Kali phos; Phos ac; Zinc.

Dose.--The best results are elicited with material doses (5-10) drops of tincture, several times daily. Continue its use until tonic effects ensue.

Good wishes. Milap Singh

Nunni,

I have found the easiest way to put on weight is to have milk in the night with honey for a few days!

And the easiest way to reduce fat around waist is to have a glass of very warm water with honey and with/without Lemon.
And ofcourse Mr.Joe's NatPhos therapy.( though we have to strike the correct dosage and potency suitable for one's constitution)

Alfalfa in homeopathic potencies do not have any side effects. It increases the digestive potential and appetite invariably correcting the underlying causes that lead to that state of affairs. It is therefore not directly helping in weight increase in any way. When digestion power is improved and normalised, the system works efficiently and the benefits can be reaped in the form of gaining weight for the under-weights. You may add Gentiana Lut Q alongwith Alfalfa for benefits. Five drops each in one ounce of water three times a day. It usually gives benefits within three days. Use of it more than a week , therefore, would be redundant and unnecessary.
