In one study, Thuja extract from Thuja occidentalis cured resistant warts on the fingers, leaving only superficial scars and without affecting allograft function. The patient was treated with Thuja occidentalis (T. occidentalis) extract, orally, and topically for a period of 7 days at his native place. For external applications, he received mother tincture and as oral preparation, he was given potentized medium (power 1m= 1000 times) T. occidentalis as 2 globules thrice a day. By the end of 3rd week of therapy, warts dropped off leaving only small superficial scars [Figure 1d]. The allograft function remained unaffected at creatinine of 1.5 mg/dl. He has been followed up for one year and has not had any recurrence.

Thuja occidentalis extract is obtained from the plant Thuja, white cedar (Arborvitae or the white oak). Thuja is native to eastern North America and grown in Europe as an ornamental tree.
In folk medicine, extract from dried twig tips has been used to treat bronchial catarrh, enuresis, cystitis, psoriasis, uterine carcinomas, amenorrhea, and rheumatism. Hansel et al., have described the drug to contain 1.4-4% essential oil (critical factor as a medicinal herb), 60% of which is thujone, which corresponds to 2.4% thujone in the whole drug.
The fresh plant (related to the dry substance) contains essential oil, 2.07% reducing sugar, 4.9% water-soluble polysaccharides, 2.11% water-soluble minerals, 1.67% free acid, and 1.31% tannic agents. The essential oil of the fresh leaves (related to the monoterpene fraction) contains 65% thujone, 8% is thujone, 8% fenchone, 5% Sabines, and 2% -pine as the main monoterpenes.
Thuja orientalis is used internally in the treatment of coughs, hemorrhages, excessive menstruation, bronchitis, asthma, skin infections, mumps, bacterial dysentery, arthritic pains, and premature blandness. The leaves are antipyretic, astringent, diuretic, emmenagogue, emollient, expectorant, refringent, and stomachic. It is used internally in the treatment of palpitations, insomnia, nervous disorder, and constipation in the elderly.
The bark is used in the treatment of burns and scalds. The stems are used in the treatment of coughs, cold, dysentery, rheumatism, and parasitic skin diseases. It helps in bacterial, fungal, and worm infections.
Thuja is a toxic plant. Symptoms of intoxication from the fresh Thuja plant include vomiting, stomach ache, diarrhea, and gastroenteritis followed by absorption disorders, headache, nervous agitation, and chronic convulsions, and symptoms of liver and renal toxicity extending to yellow liver atrophy, arrhythmia, and myocardial bleeding.
In cases of overdose and abuse, the oral intake of Thuja extracts induced severe metabolic disturbances. Intoxication was accompanied by an irritant effect on the gastrointestinal tract, uterus, liver, and kidney. Infants who ingested leaves and twigs of the fresh plants showed mild gastrointestinal disorders and vomiting.
Due to a special extraction procedure, Thuja-containing preparation is safe. Do not try to use it RAW AS PLUCKED FROM THE PLANT.
