Derived from the venom of the South American bushmaster snake, lachesis is a homeopathic remedy that can be used to treat a variety of issues. Due to its blood-thinning properties, it is ideal for circulatory problems, and may also help with issues with the heart itself. Women who suffer unpleasant side effects from menstruation or menopause may find relief using lachesis. It is also known to be useful in treating people who have a painful sore throat. Other uses of lachesis in homeopathy include treatment of tremors, skin injuries and ailments, and gastrointestinal problems.

The use of lachesis in homeopathy is often focused on treating issues that affect the circulatory system. People with poor circulation, many times to the point that their extremities turn blue, often benefit from using it, as its anticoagulant properties help improve blood flow. Veins that are swollen or painful such as varicose veins may be treated with lachesis. Those with heart problems may also often benefit from use of lachesis; practitioners of homeopathy often prescribe it for an irregular pulse rate, palpitations, and chest pains.

Another major use of lachesis in homeopathy is for addressing women's health issues. Those going through menopause may find relief from symptoms like hot flashes, fainting, or heart palpitations by using it. It can help reduce the pain and cramping of menstruation, and is also thought to help reduce the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, particularly emotional issues and mood swings.

Homeopaths sometimes use lachesis to treat a sore, swollen throat. It is particularly useful when the throat is so painful that the patient finds it difficult to swallow. Often this type of throat pain is accompanied by pain in the ear, particularly on the left side.

A variety of other problems can also be addressed by the use of lachesis in homeopathy. Tremors caused by weakness in the limbs or nervous system disorders may be reduced using lachesis, and it is also thought to help with epileptic seizures. Many types of skin problems like burns, insect bites, and boils can be treated with it, and it may help slow-healing wounds get better more quickly. Gastrointestinal problems including ulcers, stomachaches, and vomiting may respond well to lachesis. It is also effective in treating headaches, especially those that occur on the left side of the head or are caused by congestion.
