Coriandrum sativum

It is a culinary and house hold remedy in India. Commonly known as coriander, it is strongly aromatic. In Indian medicine, it is considered as a stimulant, carminative and stomachic (digestive), diuretic and aphrodisiac. It is a gentle remedy for flatulence, bloating and gripping. Observing its medicinal properties as an herb, Dr. V. T. Augustine had introduced this drug to homoeopathy by publishing his observations in Hahnemannian Gleanings. The present proving was conducted by Louis Klein and Toni Bark with 9 provers.
