Naja tripudians

(Cobra Venom)

Naja is not a hemorrhagic or septic remedy in the same way that other snake remedies are. The disorganization of the blood is often the result of a septic or infectious state rather than the cause of it. Naja is said to relieve the terrible pains of cancer; consider the Euphorbiums in conjunction for this.
Although the cobra is one of the most poisonous snakes in the world, the left-sideness of the symptom picture reflects its centuries of contact with humans.
