This remedy is made from flowers of sulphur. Medicinally, sulphur is a purgative and increases the production of urea (from the breakdown of protein) in the liver. It is also a constituent of albumin and epithelial issue. At one time sulphur was extensively used to treat rheumatism.
Sulphur is most beneficial to people who have small, red-rimmed eyes and long lashes, a rather dirty-looking complexion, a lean body and stooping shoulders. It may also be appropriate for small, scrawny individuals, or for those who are ruddy-faced and full-bodied. The Sulphur type also tends to be egotistical, a would-be intellectual, a dabbler in philosophy.
