The energetics of Anemone pulsatilla and what this can bring to herbal medicine
The aim of the dissertation was to explore the energetics of Anemone pulsatilla and how these qualities can be utilised. The research was carried out through a literature search, questionnaire, a review of class tastings of the herb and a Goethean plant observation. This resulted in the indentification of a number of energetic themes. Both relating to the type of patient Anemone is suited for, plus relating to the plant itself and how it grows.
The literature reviews revealed controversy over the use of the fresh versus the dried plant preparations, overall findings suggest that the fresh plant has stronger energetic qualities.
In conclusion, Pulsatilla has powerful energetic properties specific for a certain type of patient. It is hoped hat this study can help clarify the confusion and fear surrounding the fresh plant material and help create a greater understanding of how to use Pulsatilla in a more energetic way.
