How does Bryonia work?

Bryonia root contains a resin that has a strong laxative effect to purge the contents of the bowels.

Are there safety concerns?

Bryonia is UNSAFE to use for anyone. It can cause many side effects including dizziness, vomiting, convulsions, colic, bloody diarrhea, abortion, nervous excitement, and kidney damage at fairly low doses. Larger doses may cause fatal poisoning in adults and children. Just touching fresh bryonia can cause skin irritation.

Dosing considerations for Bryonia.

The appropriate dose of bryonia depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for bryonia. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
