Description / History:
Natrum Sulphuricum
Smith's Homeopathic Pharmacy, New York, NY

Natrum Sulphuricum was a homeopathic, alternative medicine tablet. The drug was believed by some to have healing properties that stimulated the liver and intestines to absorb nutrients and vitamins, while excreting unwanted toxins. However, no medical evidence exists to indicate that natrum sulphuricum was effective in any of the treatments listed above. The drug was distributed in a clear machine molded glass bottle with the name "Smith" embossed on the back of the bottle. A glass stopper was utilized as a top to prevent the spilling of tablets.
