(Pulsatilla nigricans)

The pulsatilla, or windflower as it is also known, contains a poisonous substance which results in blisters in the mouth and throat if chewed. Homoeopath will often prescribe Pulsatilla to patients with conditions accompanied by a thick discharge.

Pulsatilla 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, Pulsatilla can eliminate the symptoms that it creates when it is at full strength.
