Homeopathic remedies are prescribed on the basis that in a tiny dilution like cures like, so while the very dilute homeopathic remedy may help, the raw product is often best avoided.
Below are the strongest indications (i.e. symptoms) of Convallaria Majalis in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.
Convallaria is a popular remedy in Russia for heart affections, and it has been introduced into old-school medicine principally as a heart remedy.
It compares closely in its action with Lilium tigrinum, and also resembles its other botanical relatives, Aloe, Allium cepa, and Allium sativum. It is strongly purgative and causes morning vomiting.
It has been proved, and the symptoms produced show that its nearest analogue is Lilium tigrinum. Nash has used it in 30th with very satisfactory results in women complaining of great soreness in uterine region with sympathetic palpitation of the heart.
He has also removed cardiac dropsy when this uterine soreness has been present as well.
Berridge credits it with this symptom: "Movement in the abdomen as from the fist of a child," like Sulph., Thuj., Croc. In the case of Conv. the symptom occurs "when lying on the back." Sleepiness accompanies many symptoms.
