Stress. Do you find yourself making these statements “I’m so stressed out!”, “I’ve got a stress headache.”, “My life is stressful.”. Stress is unfortunately a part of our lives both at work and at home. It is difficult to avoid stress in our busy lives. Some common symptoms of stress are sleeplessness, fear and anxiety, restlessness, irritability, inability to concentrate, negativity, exhaustion, rise in blood pressure, frequent colds, over eating, and could lead to depression.

Homeopathy is an invaluable and effective treatment for stress.

Mild stress can be elevated with homeopathic remedies. Some commonly used remedies for stress and anxiety are:

  • Argentum Nitricum 30c: This remedy is indicated when anxiety develops before a big event (ie. an interview for a job, an exam, a public speech, social engagement, marriage, etc.)
  • Gelsemium 30C: This remedy is indicated when you are having feelings of weakness, trembling, and mental dullness.
  • Kali Phosphoricum 30C: This remedy is indicated when a person has been exhausted by overwork or illness. The individual feels a deep anxiety and inability to cope. They can be jumpy and oversensitive. Hearing unpleasant news or thinking of world events can aggravate the problems.
  • Nux Vomica 30C: This remedy is great for periods of stress from overwork when irritability takes over the nervous system. Feeling hurried, frustrated and anxious about work and deadlines, waking up in the middle of the night and not able to get back to sleep until morning? This is when Nux vomica will help. 

    For chronic and severe chronic cases of anxiety homeopathy is a great modality to address the underlying issues that lead to symptoms. Homeopathic remedies stimulate the natural mechanisms of healing within the body. In homeopathy there is no “one size fits all”. Everyone is different. A qualified homeopath will work with you to find the remedy that best fits your body’s needs and assist in its own healing.
