Dose of Dhataki in Medicine
The dried flowers of Woodfordia Floribunda are regarded as stimulant and astringent and are much used, in combination with other astringent medicines, in bowel complaints and haemorrhages. 2 drachms of the dried flowers are given with curdled milk in dysentery, and with honey in menorrhagia.
In the dysentery of children, the following combination is recommended to be given in the form of powder or decoction with the addition of honey. To prepare it, take the flowers of Woodfordia Floribunda, bael fruits, bark of Symplocos racemosa (lodhra), root of Pavonia Odorata (bala), and the fruits of Pothos officinalis (gajapipul), in equal parts, 2 tolas in all and prepare a decoction in the usual way. The powdered flower is sprinkled over ulcers for diminishing their discharge and promoting granulation.
