The remedy I love 💜 this week spotlight on Aconite( Aconitum napellus)
I found Aconite very useful in our first aid kit. It was one of the first remedies I have used and found helpful in maltitude of situations.
Here is one of the scenarios when Aconite can come to rescue :-)
Coming back with your child from a day of fun on a dry, cold windy day. Many of these days are ahead of us during winter when it is cold and windy, especially living close to the ocean.
The child is fine and all the sudden in the middle of the night wakes up restless, frighten with a bad cough and high fever. Aconite will work wonders. It is a remedy which works best in acute situations in the first 24 hours.
The action of aconite in the thermal system is dual. In case of fever, it reduces the temperature and in the case of hypothermia increase temperature.
Aconite was first proved by father of homeopathy Samuel Hahnemann some of his symptoms which are interesting for Aconite from his book Materia Medica Pura are:
Fear of impending death - ( patient knows time and day of his death)
Palpitation with tremendous anxiety.
Sleeplessness with anxiety
Severe chilliness throughout the body with shivering
Also whenever there was strong fear, shock, anxiety, worries, fright or panic for example following a car accident. Aconite is useful to have.
Mental and physical restlessness is characteristic of this remedy.
This remedy is called homeopathic sedative for a good reason, it can help to get back to equilibrium if something traumatic happened.
A great remedy for panic and fear of many types.
Panic can be related to past trauma. When in a panic person needing aconite will have dry skin, dry mouth and fast heartbeat.
Aconite patient is better for rest, fresh air, sweat.
The patient needing aconite is worse for strong emotions(fears including fear of death, flying, crowd, ghost, dark ), cold wind, at night.
This remedy has a short-acting power and it is used mostly in acute cases. Since 200C potency is best to use especially if there are also mental components such as for example fear of death.
Aconite is a wonderful remedy to have it handy in our first aid kit, check this website for weekly blogs on remedies I love using :-)
