More about the substance used to prepare pulsatilla nigricans homeopathic remedy:

The homeopathic remedy pulsatilla nigricans is derived from the pasque flower, sometimes written pasqueflower, and also known as the windflower.

The remedy is prepared using the whole 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.
