This homeopathic remedy comes from the poisonous venom of the bushmaster snake. Lachesis mutus has potent effects on the blood and central nervous system.
A rare homeopathic remedy from Central and South America, Lachesis Mutus, has been prescribed for centuries as a blood thinner. This thinning quickly improves blood flow which speeds healing by removing toxins from the blood.
The poison of the bushmaster, a greatly feared snake native to Central and South America, is deadly if it enters the human bloodstream. It can paralyze the heart and central nervous system and disrupt the blood-clotting process. If the poison is injected into a muscle, it can induce server swelling. These reactions are why many people find it surprising that this snake venom is used in homeopathic medicine to treat various circulatory and nervous-system disorders. But the remedy, Lachesis mutus, is so dilute that only almost undetectable amounts of the poison remain. Like other homeopathic remedies, it is considered most effective in people who have particular modes of behavior. Before prescribing Lachesis mutus, the homeopath will look for such personality traits as strong self-confidence and a tendency toward envy and vengefulness. In addition, the remedy is often prescribed when symptoms of any ailments start on the left side and worsen after waking.
