Foxglove General Information
Foxglove is a beautiful flowering plant that also has the reputation of being one of the most dangerous medicinal plants. The long green leaves contain the glycoside digitoxin, which is now called digitalis, the cardiac stimulant that many heart patients need to survive. Digitalis has the ability to regulate and stimulate the heart, or stop it all together. The ancient Britons used it to cure wounds, and for hundreds of years, the Irish used Foxglove to treat boils, ulcers, headaches, and paralysis.

Foxglove Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Today, Digitalis is used for treating congestive heart failure and congenital heart defects. The glycoside digitoxin, strengthens the cardiac muscle contractions and regulates the heartbeat. The cardiac glycosides in Foxglove help the heart beat more strong, slowly, and regularly without needing more oxygen. Digoxin, another glycoside, acts as a diuretic on the kidneys, stimulating urine production which lowers the volume of blood and takes stress off the heart. Digitalis is also used to treat a slow or irregular pulse, and works very well as an antidote in Aconite poisoning.

Foxglove Dosage Information
Due to the dangerous constituents in Foxglove, it is best used under the supervision of your physician. Digitalis can only be obtained by a prescription from your physician. In ordinary circumstances, Foxglove or Digitalis can take twelve hours or more before any effects on the heart is seen and so can be combined with other remedies to help the patient until they begin to take effect. It is said that Lily of the Valley may be used as a substitute if Foxglove or Digitalis does not give the desired results.

Foxglove Safety & Interaction Information
Foxglove is extremely dangerous in high doses and can cause cardiac rhythm disorders, depression, heart failure, or asphyxiation. It can also cause cerebral symptoms such as seeing everything in blue, and affecting other senses. Poisoning by Foxglove or Digitalis is generally remedied with the administration of Atropine. Taking this herb, or the drug Digitalis can cause digestive disturbances as well. Also, the constant use of Digitalis to increase the activity of the heart will lead to hypertrophy of that organ.
