Buy Lachesis

General description and domicile:
There are several species of bushmaster snakes, but not all are all native to South America. The homeopathic remedy is made from the venom of Lachesis Muta, also named the South American bushmaster Snake found in most tropical and subtropical countries of South America.
Bushmasters are large snakes, growing to nearly ten feet in length. Lachesis is not the most venomous snake if this is measured in potency per drop but it makes up for it, like the Gaboon viper, by size of fangs (one inch long) and sheer volume of venom injected, which could possibly make it the world's most dangerous snake.
The venom affects both the nervous and circulatory systems (both cytotoxic and neurotoxic).
The fatality rate of bushmaster bites is extremely high at four out of five, but even that has to be seen in perspective as it prefers to live deep in the forest so that is where the recorded bites occurred, which is an impossible place to start from to get to a hospital fast. Chances are that bites in or near a city where medical help is available in short order would not have a fatality rate anywhere near that high.
Local folklore has it that the Surucucu snake will hunt humans for prey, but that is highly unlikely as even the largest bushmaster is not big enough to swallow a fully grown human or any child big enough to venture deep into the forest. It would have to be a very small baby and these snakes avoid human settlements, like most snakes.

Warning: Extreme care must be taken when handling this snake as it is aggressive.

Part used and extraction:
The venom is used.

Remedy preparation:
Diluted in alcohol to obtain mother tincture

The story behind the proving of this remedy may not be true but it is worth recounting: The remedy was proved by Dr. Constantine Herring during a zoological expedition to South America in the early nineteenth century. He was poisoned from handling a live bushmaster snake and his wife, who accompanied him in the trip, nursed him back to health while keeping a detailed account of the symptoms he was experiencing forming the basis of the proving.
