One of the true strengths of homeopathy is that it addresses both the mental and emotional state of an individual- as well as the physical symptoms. For example – pain relief in labour is great, but there is not an allopathic solution to the mental/emotional fear and anxiety that many women experience. Aconite offers this relief.
The potency I recommend is Aconite 1M – the idea with choosing a potency in homeopathy is to match the intensity of the symptoms with the strength of the remedy. A 1M dose is considered a high potency and this remedy requires that match in order to be most effective.
It is safe, effective and appropriate to use Aconite 1M for relief of anxiety for children, breastfeeding women and during pregnancy and labour. It will offer instant results –
if you are experiencing anxiety symptoms such as:
- heart palpitations
- fear of dying
- tightness in the chest
- tingling anywhere in the body
- repetitive fearful thoughts
- panic attack symptoms
- feelings of fear – as if you might die!
Two pellets of Aconite 1M. Repeat as needed. You cannot overdose.
Common Situations that would match this remedy:
- fear during labour – especially if a previous birth has been traumatic.
- Old fears that return – This applies to any situation in which an individual has experienced trauma and when placed in a similar situation feels frightened and anxious.
- fear of starting something new – first day of school, new job etc.
- social anxiety – fear of crowds
- overwhelmed sensations – a lot of new aspects being assimilated at once
- fear of pain
- fear in newborns – babies that clench their jaws, eyes closed and fists – after a traumatic birth
