Caulophyllum thalictroides

Caulophyllum thalictroides is a homeopathic remedy sometimes known simply as 'Caulophyllum'.

Caulophyllum thalictroides is sometimes used during labour (child birth), and also to alleviate pain in the extremities of the limbs (hands & feet).

For example, it is thought to be helpful in cases of long, painful or exhausting labour (to help make contractions more effective, although it is be used with caution), to ease a rigid cervix, and in other situations such as pain in small joints such as the fingers.


More about the substance used to prepare caulophyllum thalictroides homeopathic remedy:

The homeopathic remedy caulophyllum thalictroides is derived from a flowering plant also called blue cohosh that grows about 1-3 feet tall. It is common in hardwood forests in the eastern parts of the USA where it thrives in moist shady areas.

A sketch of part of a blue cohosh plant showing some leaves and berries is shown belowon the left.

The remedy is prepared using the roots of the plant.

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. These pages feature some of the most popular homeopathic remedies and are for general interest only: This is not medical advice. 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.
