*Fraxinus has had a fragmentary proving, but the chief clinical authority for its use is Dr. Burnett, who regards it as a uterine tonic in all heavy states of the uterus with prolapse, bearing- down, and relaxed ligaments. He calls it “the medicinal pessary.” I have repeatedly verified his indications. It is an organ remedy of the first rank. It is also indicated in uterine tumors, especially fibroids, with bearing-down sensations.
