What is Lachesis Mutus?

Lachesis mutus is a homeopathic remedy that affects the blood and central nervous system. It is made from a very dilute solution of the poisonous venom of the bushmaster snake. The most important effect of Lachesis mutus is its blood-thinning, or anti-coagulant, function. This action enhances blood flow and facilitates the healing process by hastening the removal of toxins from the blood.

Benefits

Lachesis mutus is used as a homeopathic treatment for many bleeding disorders--including rectal bleeding, nosebleeds, bleeding gums, prolonged menstrual periods--and to relieve depression, palpitations, migraines and other throbbing headaches, tonsillitis, anal fissures, hemorrhoids, poor circulation, cold extremities, a swollen or inflamed tongue, and all types of skin ulcers and wounds. It is also sometimes used to ease menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, painful ovaries, aches, headache, anxiety, mood swings, nervous tension, cramps and irritability.

 The Remedy

The remedy is prepared by using the fresh venom from the bushmaster snake that goes through extensive series of dilutions before it is safe to use. Since it needs to be diluted numerous times, it is much safer to purchase a commercial preparation that has already been diluted. Be extremely cautious and make sure you find a reputable source before you purchase the remedy.

Blood Thinning Disorders

One of the most used effects of Lachesis Mutus is its blood thinning abilities. This improves blood flow and facilitates the healing process by speeding up the removal of toxins from the blood. This makes it a good choice for many blood disorders. Your homeopath will need to know if your symptoms are affected by cold or hot beverages, walking in the fresh air, changes in the climate, waking up or being touched before they can prescribe Lachesis Mutus for your condition.

Google Instant Search on Homeopathy

Posted by Sanjib Sarkar on Mon, Feb 07, 2011 @ 05:17 PM

Tags: homeopathy google search

This article is going to discuss google instant search with Homeopathy terms.  Google has been using instant search to help users fill the queries that they were trying to type.  An example would be if you typed Chocolate Ice.  The instant search would redirect you to Chocolate Ice Cream. 

The test is to see where homeopathy directs you to.  I tried a few samples with the term homeopathy.  The results were fascinating.  I would type homeopat, the instant results would show homeopathy, homeopathic medicine, homeopathic remedies and homeopathic doctors Charlotte, NC.  The last term show how Google is using the instant search to make search terms more local.  My search was based in Charlotte, NC.  

The next search term I tried was homeopathy works.  Google instant search gave me the follow terms.  Homeopathy works on animals, how homeopathy works, how homeopathy works, it does not and proof that homeopathy works.  Google sees many people using homeopathy for animals so it brings that instant result first.  It also show quite a skeptic people search on homeopathy so it shows an instant search of homeopathy not working.  

The final instant search I tried was with the term homeopathic re.  This result showed homeopathic remedies, homeopathic remedies for yeast infection, homeopathic remedies for dogs and homeopathic remedies for anxiety.  According to instant search, many people use homeopathic remedies for yeast infection, pets and anxiety.  The previous search results also implies quite a bit of pet care with homeopathy. 

Google instant search gives us some interesting results with homeopathy.  However, I really never used it.  I never clicked on the instant search to finish my query.  I am not sure if most people use the instant search or not.  The results for the instant search are definitely interesting.
