There is a confusion existing among homeopaths regarding the use of CACTUS in conditions of cardiac emergencies. Some people prefer to use mother tinctures and low potencies, whereas others prefer 30c and higher potencies.
CACTUS GRANDIFLOROUS or NIGHT-BLOOMING CEREUS is the plant from which our drug CACTUS is procured.
Raw CACTUS juice contains large amounts of Vitamin K, which contributes to the blood-clotting properties it displays during drug proving.
Potentized CACTUS contains molecular imprints of vitamin k, which help in reversing the blood clotting process by binding to vitamin k in the organism. Thereby CACTUS 30 gives instant relief in cardiac emergencies by dissolving blood clots that block the arteries.
Crude CACTUS was proved to have following actions:
1. Acts on circular muscular fibers, hence constrictions.
2. Favors formation of clots speedily.
These two actions are very much similar to what happens during a coronary artery blockage. Circular muscular fibres of coronary arteries suddenly contracts spasmodically, thereby narrowing the lumen of arteries. Blood clots forms and block these arteries, which results in the emergency situation.
That means, Molecular imprints contained in potenized CACTUS can reverse these processes happening during a heart attack. It relaxes the artery walls, dissolves the blood clots and facilitates the blood flow to cardiac muscles thereby preventing tissue death.
Frequent repetition is very important until tiding over the emergency situation.
During acute cardiac emergencies due to coronary artery blockage, give CACTUS 30 (dilution) in frequent doses until symptoms subside or expert medical care is made available. For last many years, I ask people in high risk group to always carry a 30ML bottle of CACTUS 30 (dilution) with them WITHIN REACH. Many of them had informed me that it had helped them to save their own life or others’ life during emergencies.
Never use CACTUS Q in such situations. It is expressly said in materia medica that “Cactus favors formation of blood clots speedily” during provings with crude forms. That means, “potentized Cactus can dissolve blood clots” according to similia similibus curentur.

HANDBOOK OF MATERIA MEDICA- BOERICKE:
Acts on circular muscular fibers, hence constrictions.
*It is the heart and arteries especially that at once respond to the influence of Cactus, producing very characteristic constrictions as of an iron band.
This sensation is found in various places, oesophagus, bladder, etc.
The mental symptoms produced correspond to those found when there are heart affections, sadness, and melancholy.
Whole body feels as if caged, each wire being twisted tighter.
Atheromatous arteries and weak heart.
Congestions; irregular distribution of blood.
*Favors formation of clots speedily.
Toxic goitre with cardiac symptoms.
Cactus is pulseless, panting and prostrated.
*Fear of death.
Screams with pain.
*Constriction of oesophagus.
Dryness of tongue, as if burnt; needs much liquid to get food down.
*Suffocative constriction at throat, with full, throbbing carotids in angina pectoris.
*Oppressed breathing as from a weight on chest.
*Constriction in chest, as if bound, hindering respiration.
Inflammation of diaphragm.
*Heart-constriction, as from an iron band.
Heart weakness of arterio-sclerosis.
Violent palpitation; worse lying on left side, at approach of menses.
*Angina pectoris, with suffocation, cold sweat, and ever-present iron band feeling.
*Pain in apex, shooting down left arm.
*Palpitation, with vertigo; dyspnoea, flatulence.
*Constriction; very acute pains and stitches in heart; pulse feeble, irregular, quick, without strength.
*Palpitation; pain shooting down left arm.
Haemoptysis, with convulsive, spasmodic cough.
Diaphragmitis, with great difficulty of breathing.
*Numbness of left arm.
