Gelsemium sempervirens, also known as yellow jasmine or wild woodbine, is a beautiful climbing plant found in moist woodlands and along seacoasts in the southern states of the U.S. It climbs high up in trees, forming festoons from tree to tree and perfuming the air in the spring when it flowers (March - May).
After recovering from the poisonous effects of Gelsemium, he was cured of the chronic fever from which he had been suffering.
Emotionally, Gelsemium is an important acute remedy for those who become literally paralyzed with anxiety (anticipatory anxiety) and fear, suffering from shaking legs, frequent urination, and diarrhea in anticipation of an important event like an exam or an interview.
Poisonous doses of Gelsemium produce a sensation of languor, relaxation and muscular weakness, which may be followed by paralysis if the dose is sufficiently large.
The treatment of Gelsemiumpoisoning consists in the prompt evacuation of the stomach by an emetic, if the patient's condition permits; and secondly, and equally important, artificial respiration, aided by the early administration, subcutaneously, of ammonia, strychnine, atropine or digitalis.
In America, it was formerly extensively used as an arterial sedative and febrifuge in various fevers, more especially those of an intermittent character, but now it is considered probably of little use for this purpose, for it has no action on the skin and no marked action on the alimentary or circulatory system.
