Still a work in progress.
Ranunculae seem to help proper assimilation, Compositae to work in elimination. But right now they've been working one way and then the other on alternate months. I haven't got a long enough time period to know more clearly.
Just an idea:
Maybe Compositae remedies (Arnica, echinacea) work internally for immunity and to develop inner strength and Ranunculae (Puls, Staph, etc.) work to help the body resist the environment and develop outer strength. That would explain its presence in different periods of the moon cycle.
