Pulsatilla in homeopathy

Homeopathic Pulsatilla can be Used Holistically

Holistic healing and treatments are beneficial not only to your body but also to your mind. There are many natural-based, remedies and treatments in a world full of harsh medications that we’re ever so desperate to escape. Let us discuss the so-called “Queen of Homeopathic Remedies”, the Pulsatilla.

Most studied Pulsatilla

Pulsatilla is a plant that once prepared according to homeopathic principles becomes an extraordinary holistic remedy used to cure an array of symptoms. A purple perennial herb is common in Europe and is part of the Anemone family. There are many Pulsatilla species available such as the Pulsatilla vulgaris, Pulsatilla nuttalliana, and the Pulsatilla Chinensis, however, the one with most studies is Pulsatilla pretenses.

History of Pulsatilla

Pulsatilla under the homeopathic direction, attenuation, and potency and in close relation to the person being treated is an effective curative option, however, under crude dose, it is potentially toxic.

Pulsatilla became incredibly popular during the 19th century, thanks to the father of homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann. Discovered that this herb is good in the treatment of melancholy, swelling of the knees, and various nervous system disorders. Although it contains lactones, saponins, anemone camphor, tannins, and volatile oil, the homeopathic Pulsatilla treatment is to cure a number of acute ailments caused by depression, loss/grief, anger, fear, loss of vital fluids, extreme exposure to the sun, menstrual issues, mental strain and the symptoms rented to the consumption of fatty foods.

Homeopathic Pulsatilla

Homeopathic Pulsatilla covers over 10,000 conditions and can confidently cure roughly 1,900 symptoms. The specific prerequisite to bringing about Pulsatilla latent potentiality is through meticulous attenuation and succession; a process called potentization.  A potentized Pulsatilla covering many symptoms will uniquely stimulate the vital force of the individual to cover many intangible symptoms related to the mind, and other local symptoms and particular zones such as vertigo, eyes, ears, stomach, stool and anus, bladder, male and female genitals, coughing, swelling of veins, sleep, and perspiration. However, the location of the remedy is one of the seven tools a homeopath will choose to find the most adequate remedy for your condition.

Correct Identification

As there are several varieties of Pulsatilla the most studied in homeopathy is the European Pulsatilla (Pulsatilla pratensis) and not the Pulsatilla nuttalliana; the American varieties. Homeopathic potentized Pulsatilla is available with X scale and C scale. Homeopathy uses only a highly diluted form of  Pulsatilla

X Scale and C Scale

The X scale is a  decimal scale, each scale represents 10 times more dilution than the previous one. The C scale, also known as the centesimal scale, is when a medicinal substance is 100 times more diluted than the previous one.

The AAHP (America Association of Homeopathic Pharmacies) recommends a Pulsatilla OTC minimum dilution of 1 part in 100.00, 4X, or 2C. A Pulsatilla that is readily available over the counter could be any of 3C and higher such as 6C,12C, 30C, and 200C potency

Now we can observe the most common symptoms or ailments and personality types that Pulsatilla treats.
