Pulsatilla Side Effects
Pulsatilla is one of the most common herbs used in homeopathic remedies because it is used in providing relief from some of the most commonly sought out conditions. Pulsatilla is used in homeopathy to treat conditions such as insomnia, menstrual cramps, asthma, depression, anxiety, headaches, skin conditions, and much more. It is also commonly recommended to provide relief to children. However, like any type of health supplement, pulsatilla side effects are not unheard of and must be watched for.
Pulsatilla is a plant that has been used for hundreds of years to provide relief from common conditions. Its leaves and sometimes roots are often dried out and used in supplements and ointments.
Some of the most common pulsatilla side effects and warnings for use include:
- While the dried plant is considered to be safe, the fresh plant is an irritant.
- The fresh form of pulsatilla should not be eaten or applied to the skin.
- Women who are pregnant or who are trying to become pregnant should not use pulsatilla, either fresh or dried, due to the risk of some birth complications.
By consulting with a homeopath and your primary care provider, many of these pulsatilla side effects can be easily avoided. Like most homeopathic remedies, pulsatilla side effects are rare and usually mild when taken correctly and in proper dosages under the care of an experienced homeopath.
