Origin : Found in all temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere.
Background : Hawthorn is an extremely valuable medicinal herb, used since the Middle Ages as a heart remedy. Modern trials have shown that it improves the heart rate and lowers blood pressure.
Preparation : The fresh, ripe berries are chopped and macerated in alcohol.
Remedy Profile : Crataegus is most appropriate for irritable, cross, melancholic people who are prone to heart complaints. They tend to feel weak, fragile, and despairing. Their brains feel dull and confused, with possible periods of quiet and calm.
The characteristic symptom picture for the remedy is of a weak heart, palpitations, and a rapid heartbeat with a sense of hurry and urgency. The pulse is fast, feeble, and intermittent. Fainting and collapse may accompany palpitations, while the area around the heart can feel as though it is bursting due to congestion or overexertion.
