Key Uses:AsthmaHeadachesHeart degeneration, perhaps following a bout of severe influenza or rheumatic feverEdema
Origin : Native to Russia and the Black Sea region, and now found in much of Europe, growing on mountain pastures.
Background : The plant takes its name from Adonis, a Greek mythological figure linked to the seasonal renewal of plant life. In Russia it is used as a heart remedy.
Preparation : The chopped aerial parts of the plant are steeped in alcohol.
Remedy Profile : People for whom Adonis is suitable tend to be apprehensive and prone to horrible dreams and restless sleep. They generally feel “waterlogged” and uncomfortable.
The classic symptom picture for Adonis is of heart degeneration, perhaps following a bout of severe influenza or rheumatic fever. There may be pain and palpitations in the area around the heart. The heart rhythms may be abnormally rapid or slow and faltering, possibly because of diseased valves or fatty degeneration. Edema (an irregular accumulation of fluid in the body tissues or cavities), which develops as a result of poor circulation and is accompanied by scanty urine, may be treated by Adonis.
The remedy is also used to treat asthma with breathlessness, discomfort, or heart disease. Further symptoms may include headaches that move from the back of the head, around the temples, to the eyes.
Symptoms Better : For exertion.
Symptoms Worse : For cold; for lying down.
