Crataegus Oxyacantha wood is hard and heavy. It grows everywhere across Europe, except in the regions where Olea Europaea grows. It is a thorny plant from the Rosacea family and became the symbol of longevity due to its actions on the heart and brain. The main focus of Crataegus Oxyacantha is as a cardiac tonic for enhanced cardiac perfusion and cerebral irrigation.
There is a high concentration of glycosides in its young shoots which help regulate heart rate via cardiac impulses and myocardial tonus.
Crataegus Oxyacantha has positive ionotropic properties to reinforce the force and amplitude of ventricular contractions, negative chronotropic actions to slow a rapid heart rate, dromotropic positive actions to facilitate neurocardiac impulses, repolarization and correction of ST depressions, and is bathmotropic positive to facilitate cardiac excitability.
Lastly Crataegus Oxyacantha is a normotensio-regulator for balancing vascular tone
Due to its strong actions, Crataegus Oxyacantha must be stopped prior to ECGs and has a risk of potentiation and interference with cardiac medications therefore extreme care must be taken before administering this Gemmotherapy.INDICATIONS
Crataegus Oxyacantha has a very strong antisclerotic potential whenever there is only a lipid metabolic dysfunction. This antisclerotic potential is possible due to its protein-related and anticoagulation activities. Crataegus Oxyacantha will adapt to a number of biological terrains where the neurocardiac syndrome is predominant. Crataegus Oxyacantha can help in all heart conditions and its action is similar to digitalis. Crataegus Oxyacantha is a valuable anti-thrombophilic adjuvant and can be effective in disorders of repolarization of the heart. This remedy is indicated for all cardiac symptoms and conditions such as precordial pain, tachycardia, angina, congestive heart failure and the sequelae of infracts.
