Pulsatilla

Pulsatilla

REMEDY PROFILE

People who respond best to Pulsatilla are sweet-natured, gentle, and compliant. They will avoid confrontation, but their moods change frequently and rapidly, and they can be stubborn in their demands for attention and sympathy. Their physical symptoms can be equally changeable. Easily moved to laughter or tears, they are highly prone to weepiness when ill, but are soon consoled by hugs. Other common traits are a dislike of stuffy rooms or fatty foods, a lack of thirst, and a preference for fresh air.

Pulsatilla is given for labor, menstruation, menopause, and pregnancy problems. It is used for respiratory illness marked by yellowy-green catarrh, eye complaints, and indigestion with variable symptoms.

Women's health

Symptoms: Short, variable, late or absent menstrual flow with severe pain. There may be delayed onset of menstruation in puberty. Severe premenstrual may respond to the remedy, particularly if it is accompanied by indigestion, weepiness, and mood swings. In pregnancy, if the general symptom picture fits, Pulsatilla is given for stress incontinence, fatigue, indigestion, and morning sickness (especially if this is brought on by fatty foods). It may also act on the uterine muscles to help turn a malpresented or breech baby in the uterus during labor.

Symptoms better: For fresh air, gentle exercise, crying and sympathy.
Symptoms worse: For heat, lying on the left side, in the evening, for rich, fatty foods.

Colds & coughs

Symptoms: An alternately runny or blocked nose, with smelly, thick, yellowy-green catarrh, and a reduced sense of taste and smell. There may be wet, spasmodic coughing, with yellowy-green mucus and shortness of breath, which is worse for lying on the left side. Violent coughing fits tend to occur in the evening and at night; they may be triggered by lying down, and frequently cause sleep to be disturbed. Pulsatilla may be prescribed for influenza when there is a fever with alternate hot and cold flashes, a lack of thirst, and possibly an earache.

Symptoms better: For fresh air, gentle exercise, crying and sympathy.
Symptoms worse: For stuffy environment, lying down.

Sinusitis

Symptoms: Yellowy catarrh, weepiness, and headaches. the sinuses are tender to the touch. Sharp pains may begin on the right side of the face, but tend to move around.

Symptoms better: For fresh air, gentle exercise.
Symptoms worse: For stuffy environments, cold, in the evening.

Eye Infections

Symptoms: Profuse, yellowy-green, foul-smelling discharge from the eye, with sensitivity to light and possible indigestion. Pulsatilla may help conjunctivitis and itchy styes.

Symptoms better: For fresh air, for bathing the eyes in cold water.
Symptoms worse: For warm rooms, in the evening.

Digestive disorders

Symptoms: Variable, including indigestion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and painful, itchy hemorrhoids. No two stools are alike. the mouth is dry but there is not thirst and a craving for, or aversion to, rich foods that exacerbate the symptoms.

Symptoms better: For fresh air, gentle exercise.
Symptoms worse: For heat, lying on the left side, in the evening, for rich, fatty foods.
