The South American bushmaster snake kills both animals and humans by injecting a highly poisonous substance into its prey, called Lachesis, which is used as a homeopathic medicine. Used in small doses, the venom can destroy red blood cells and impair clotting. In larger doses, it can poison the heart. In homeopathic medicine it is diluted with large quantities of lactose. Lachesis acts mainly on the blood and circulation. It is also highly effective in treating premenstrual syndrome, heavy menstrual flow and painful cramps, which are the result of uterine fibroids. Lachesis also aids wounds, ulcers, stomach pain, vomiting and bleeding hemorroids. Due to the poisonous nature of Lechesis, it should only be taken when prescribed by a naturopathic doctor.
