Natural Remedies > Lachesis
This is the venom of a South American snake. You only need small doses of this venom todestroy red blood cells. Larger amounts poison the heart.
Homoeopaths recommend Lachesis for patients whose symptoms are similar to the ones created by the venom. This Homoeopathic remedy is prepared by extracting the venom from the snake and diluting it in large quantities of lactose.
Lachesish, like most Homoeopathic remedies, was made as a remedy by recognizing the reactions of healthy individuals to undiluted doses. The changes in the individuals were recorded.
When a Homoeopath sees a patient with a set of similar symptoms to the recorded ones induced by sulphur, they then prescribe it in an extremely dilute form. In a highly diluted dosage, Lachesish can eliminate the symptoms that it creates when it is at full strength.
Lachesis is available over the counter.
Professional advice is required for
each particular ailment and for dosages.
