Pulsatilla is a versatile homeopathic remedy. It is obtained from the native plant, which is also known as pasqueflower or pasqueflower. Pulsatilla is primarily known as a remedy for women and children, but it is also said to be helpful for many ailments that occur in men. Read everything about the effects, areas of application and dosage of Pulsatilla here!

When is Pulsatilla used?

Pulsatilla pratensis is one of the so-called polycrestes of homeopathy . Therapists often use homeopathic Pulsatilla, especially in paediatrics and gynecology. But men are also treated with the drug.

Conditions that may require Pulsatilla as a medicine

  • Sniffles
  • Inflammation of the paranasal sinuses (sinusitis)
  • Ear infections (otitis media)
  • Bladder infections (cystitis)
  • eye inflammation (conjunctivitis)
  • Joint pain, especially in the acute stage
  • with hormonal changes such as puberty, pregnancy, lactation, menopause and menstruation
  • venous congestion
  • Upsets in the gastrointestinal area, especially if they were triggered by spoiled or too fatty food
  • toothache
  • teething
  • desire to have children

Typical symptoms and complaints that point to Pulsatilla as a suitable homeopathic remedy are

  • The patient is anxious, tearful, sensitive, needs attention and comfort, does not want to be alone.
  • Sorrow, suffers silently
  • shyness
  • moodiness
  • variability of symptoms
  • dry mouth but no thirst
  • wants fresh air; does not tolerate overheated, closed rooms
  • Poor circulation with blackening before the eyes when standing up
  • Fainting on standing for a long time
  • does not tolerate fatty foods, pork or ice cream
  • Fullness in the stomach, like a stone
  • Complaints are at night but worst before midnight
  • paroxysmal pain
  • wandering pains
  • Chronic runny nose, constant “snotty nose”
  • Sniffles from one nostril only
  • Secretions from the nose, eyes, and ears, or sputum from the lungs are thick, mild, and yellow-green
  • Deafness with colds
  • Coughing is worse lying down and you cannot sleep because of it
  • Cough exhausts the patient
  • bitter taste in the mouth especially in the morning

Symptoms get better with:

  • Cold and cold compresses
  • cold food and drinks
  • fresh air
  • slow movements
  • upright posture

The symptoms are made worse by:

  • Warmth and warm room air
  • fatty food, lying down (especially on the left side)
  • in the evening
  • before menstruation

These symptoms can either be the actual signs of the disease or they can also occur as simultaneous changes from the normal state. In any case, these signs indicate that Pulsatilla may be a suitable homeopathic remedy for the patient.

If the symptoms persist or get worse, always go to a doctor and have the cause clarified. This is especially true when it comes to illnesses in babies and children.

Pulsatilla for babies and children

Coughs, runny noses, middle ear and sinus infections are typical acute illnesses in children, which are said to respond very well to Pulsatilla. These infections are often accompanied by fever. Homeopaths consider Pulsatilla especially when a cold develops into an otitis media. The pasqueflower is also used for teething pain.

Children with diarrhea and vomiting after eating too much fat should also benefit from Pulsatilla. A Pulsatilla child often has one infection after another, has a weak immune system and appears to be constantly ill. At school age, the Pulsatilla child often suffers from headaches and sleep problems.

The children often have problems with other children because they let everything be done to them due to their fearfulness, shyness and tearfulness. In these cases, Pulsatilla is said to help develop self-confidence and courage.
