More about the substance used to prepare eupatorium perfoliatum homeopathic remedy:

The homeopathic remedy eupatorium perfoliatum is derived from boneset, a perennial herb native to the eastern part North America.

A sketch of eupatorium perfoliatum in flower is shown below.

This plant has an upright cylindrical hairy stem that grows to about 2-4 feet feet high, is branched at the top and has large slim leaves. It grows wild from as far north as Nova Scotia (Canada) and North Dakota (USA), southwards to Louisiana and Texas in the southern part of the USA.

The remedy is prepared using freshly obtained above ground floral parts of the herb, but not its roots.

Homeopathic preparations are usually supplied in either liquid or pill form. Regardless of the physical form in which the remedy is taken, its preparation will have involved a series of dilutions during which the original substance was repeatedly diluted and succussed (shaken) in a solvent such as water and/or alcohol.

There are very many (over 2,000) homeopathic remedies, some of which are available from chemists and health food shops.

Consult a qualified homeopathic practitioner for advice about use of this and any other homeopathic remedy. Bear in mind that homeopathic remedies are very dilute; even if a homeopathic remedy is beneficial, the substance from which it is derived may be harmful.
