ADONIS VERNALIS symptoms of the homeopathy remedy from Plain Talks on Materia Medica with Comparisons by W.I. Pierce. What ADONIS VERNALIS can be used for? Indications and personality of ADONIS VERNALIS …



      Adonis has bright scarlet petals, which are considered as emblematical of the blood of Adonis, from which the plant is fabled to have sprung.


      The remedy has had only a fragmentary proving and our knowledge of it is very limited. Its chief use, perhaps, has been in cardiac dropsies (63) especially when due to valvular lesions, including double lesions of the mitral valve. It is also of value as a palliative in cardiac affections following interstitial nephritis.

It causes the heart to become stronger and more regular, and increases the urinary secretion.

I used Adonis in the tincture.
