Asa foetida[fetida] is one of the plants i have used very often in homoeopathy.
EXTREMELY useful for "reflux", I have been able to spare children major operations
for ureter[ureteral] reflex which may lead to recurrent urinary tract infections and damage to the kidneys
as well as for a hiatus hernia in more recent medicine known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)[also in adults]
Sometimes this can also treat asthma in children if this is caused by a reflux.
For all this I have to thank Didier Grandgeorge who describes all this in his genius book:
The spirit of homoeopathic medicines.
All the homoeopathic books bring the fact that asa foetida is good for reverse peristalsis movement
but only because of Grandgeorge I came to treat the above-mentioned conditions.
I think it is a big Mitzva for anyone reading this to bring this to the attention of doctors, especially of urologists and gastroenterologist
How much operations/suffering could not be prevented!
The article below describes other aspects of asa fetida.
