If you will check out Pilocarpine (medicine for eye problem, Glaucoma) in Answers.com, you will get this definition: A colorless or yellow poisonous compound, C11H16N2O2, obtained from the leaves of the jaborandi and used to induce sweating, promote salivation, and treat glaucoma.

I am using homeopathy since years. It is an old alternative medicine -- it has more than 2 centuries : it was first proposed by a German physician, Hahnemann, in 1796 -- treating by the "law of similars" : to treat a poison, you take a very small dose of the same poison. It is recognized as a legal medicine in my country and it works ! I took many homeopathic diluted poisons and I am not afraid with this medicine.

I was taking this internal stuff for psoriasis. But after a week or so, it made me vomit. It turned out that the active ingredient was a very mild version of what can be, in sufficient quantities, a deadly poison. My body sure didn't like it.
