White Poplar is useful in the treatment of arthritis and rheumatism where there is much pain and swelling. Its use is similar to that of Willow, and is most effective when used in a broad therapeutic approach and not by itself. It is very helpful during the flare-up of rheumatoid arthritis. As a cholagogue it can be used to stimulate digestion and especially stomach and liver function, particularly where there is loss of appetite. Useful for the treatment of feverish colds and infections such as cystitis. Also used in the treatment of diarrhea.

Combinations : In the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis it may be used with Black Cohosh, Bogbean and Celery. As a digestive stimulant it can be used with Balmony and Golden Seal.

Dosage:

Decoction: Put l-2 teaspoonfuls of the dried bark in a cup of water, bring to the boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes. This should be drunk three times a day. To stimulate appetite, drink 30 minutes before meals.

Tincture: Take 2-4 ml of the tincture three times a day.
