The homeopathic remedy paeonia is prepared from the freshly dug up roots of the herb Paeonia officinalis or Paeonia europea in spring. The freshly obtained roots of the plant are chopped finely and subsequently macerated or marinated in alcohol for some time. The resultant solution is the homeopathic remedy paeonia. As in the case of any other homeopathic medications, paeonia too does not retain even the slightest trace of the original plant.
Since long, people have been using the herb Paeonia officinalis for various medicinal purposes. Owing to the antimicrobial and sedative properties the herb was primarily given to women after childbirth. Even today many herbalists use paeonia to lower blood pressure, inflammation and swelling. Primarily, the homeopathic remedy paeonia, which is prepared from this herb, is used to cure hemorrhoids accompanied by severe itching that result in the swelling of the anus to some extent. In such cases, patients may also suffer from anal fissures, which are also cured effectively using paeonia. The homeopathic remedy paeonia is most suitable for people who have been suffering from an anal fissure that exudes discharges from the anus. In effect, this medication is known to be most useful in cases when the anus is very clammy and the patient experiences a burning sensation that generally happens while passing stool. Such burning sensation in the anus continues for some time even after the patient has passed stool or the bowel movement is complete. In some instances, the pain and burning sensation may sustain even for several hours together, frustrating the patients who are unable to sit comfortably. As in the case of herbal medication, in homeopathy too paeonia is prescribed to cure problems related to sleep. It is effective for treating sleep disorders like insomnia caused by digestive problems, feeling sleepy during the afternoons and even nightmares, especially those associated with ghosts or phantoms.
