Trigonocephalus lachesis - bushmaster, surucucu snake - venom

From Lachesis trigonocephalus, the bushmaster or surucucu snake of South America. The homeopathic remedy is made from the venom which, depending on the size of the victim, inhibits nerve impulses within the heart and causes death very swiftly, or interferes with blood clotting and speeds up the rate at which red blood cells are destroyed, which causes slow death from jaundice, infection or blood loss.

Constitutional Indications
Lachesis is especially effective in people who are tremulous, rather bloated in appearance and in need of relief from nervous overstimulation; many such people also have red hair and freckles.

Antidoting Substances
Alcohol, salt
