NUTMEG is one of the best spices for increasing absorption, particularly in the small intestine. It works well in this respect with such spices as cardamom and ginger. Taken in buttermilk, it improves assimilation, and stops diarrhea. It helps reduce high Vata in the colon and in the nervous system. It is one of the best medicines for calming the mind. For this it can be taken 500 mg. in warm milk before sleep, to promote sound sleep. However, it has a tamasic, quality, somewhat like poppy seeds, and in excess can increase dullness of mind.

It is good for incontinence of urine or for premature ejaculation. It also serves to relieve muscle-spasms, particularly of the abdomen.
