Nux Vomica


By Anna Sienicka

This month has been very intense! Each year at this time we take in a tremendous increase of wine, chocolate, double our normal intake of coffee, sugar-rich foods, stimulants, medication, and yes, stress!

Poisoning isn't always related to some terrible bacterial/ viral infection, indeed there are some poisons we love, as we navigate the seasonal parties. Your body needs help to  handle the poisons and intoxication naturally, so why not help it with Nux Vomica?

Nux Vomica works amazingly well to help you relax, and even fall asleep at night. In fact, Nux Vomica is derived from poison nut which grows on Strychnine tree. It sounds unsettling but homeopathic remedies are merely the essence, not the actual substance of a thing.

After a party or a long day at work, Similia similibus curantur, Nux Vomica works wonders to remedy the physical and emotional ills of intoxication. Nux will soothe and calm your mind when you feel nervous, irritable, hypersensitive, over stimulated or temperamental. While in the body Nux Vomica heals digestive disturbances, portal congestion (hypertension) and hypochondrical states.

Are you feeling constipated with frequent ineffectual urging? Bladder may be irritable with frequent calls? Whether you have all the symptoms or just few, Nux Vomica is a great remedy.

After your indulgences Nux Vomica helps the body return to equilibrium and a healthy state, much faster. Yes, this a good time of year to have some on hand!

Think of Nux Vomica:

when hangover, to treat constipation, after long and stressful day at work,  when mentally overworked or experiencing anxiety over your health, after drug use or overmedicating yourself, with difficulty falling asleep, after too many coffees, especially if there are any jitters or convulsions, when nauseated, bloated and sick with food poisoning, when irritable, overstimulated. 

How to take it:

You can take Nux Vomica dry, one dose of 200 ch (depending on the severity of the injury) or dissolve one pellet (200 ch) in a glass or bottle of filtered water,  shake it 10 times and take one sip or one teaspoon.  If you feel at least 50% better then do NOT repeat.  If there is a relapse or if there is no improvement then repeat again until there is one. Remember to stir or shake the remedy 10 times before each repetition.

Thank you so much,

Anna Sienicka
