Ruta graveolens (rue)

Insights from the Experts:

Dr. Asa Hershoff’s Knee repair formula: A general regimen for the knee, which rarely fails in even the most stubborn knee problems: Ruta [6x] morning and night, with the tissue salts, Calc fluor 6x, Silica 6x and Calc phos 6x, taken together, three times daily (apart from the Ruta). After one month, the Ruta can be increased to the [12x] strength, twice daily. Later, Ruta 30c or 30x can be used once daily. - Asa Hershoff, Homeopathic Remedies

Ruta’s mental picture is not a prominent part of its applications, but is recorded as “dissatisfied with himself and others...suspicious, fretful” (Murphy’s Lotus Materia Medica) while others include anger, anxiety and resentment.
