Homeopathic remedies are prescribed on the basis that in a tiny dilution like cures like, so while very dilute Ranunculus Fincaria may help, unprocessed Ranunculus Fincaria may be best avoided.
Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Ranunculus Fincaria in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.
the cluster of small tubers growing around the crown of the root bears a striking resemblance to a bunch of piles. Sir J. Sawyer, of Birmingham, has recently (Chem. & Drug., May 25th, 1901) confirmed the old signaturists in these observations. He has successfully used all ointment prepared by macerating in lard at 100° F., for twenty-four hours, the whole plant, gathered when in bloom, and cut up. The proportions are one part of the plant to three of lard. Homoeopaths Would do well to give it internally at the same time.
The "Lesser Chelidonium Majus Celandine" is not botanically related to the true Chelidonium Majus Celandine, Chelidonium Majus Chelidonium magus, or to the Figwart tribe (Scrophularia Nodosa Scrophularia), though it is named in the old books Scrophularia Nodosa Scrophularia minor. R. ficaria is in all respects a true Crowfoot except that it has three deciduous instead of five persistent sepals, and nine petals instead of five. "It groweth in medows, by commonwaies, by ditches and trenches, and it is common everywhere, in moist and dankish places. It cometh forth about the Calends of March, and floureth a little after it beginneth to fade away in April, it is quite gone in May, afterwards it is hard to be found, yea scarcely the root" (Gerarde).
