Nux Vomica has a tradition of use for symptoms related to over-indulgence, overwork, sedentary habits, night watching, shift work, travel, and at times when the body clock is upset. It may provide symptomatic relief from insomnia that occurs around 3-5 am with thoughts of business in people who tend to be stressed, critical and over-sensitive. Nux Vomica may help with symtoms assocatied with excesses of food, alcohol, coffee, drugs and mental stimulation and may also be helpful for nausea, sour burping, bloating a few hours after eating, flatulence and indigestion & heartburn after eating rich or spicy foods. Symptoms are usually a result of a hectic pace of life and the individual may be over-reactive, over-senstive, always over-doing it and not always easy to get along with.
Nux Vomica may also be helpful for your pet for symptoms related to a varitey of digestive upsets including flatulence and indigestion from overeating or eating the wrong food as well as bouts of colic following scavenging and eating garbage. There may be vomiting, followed by constipation and then diarrhea. If there is loss of appetite it may be helpful in stimulating and restoring the appetite. It may help clear toxins and waste products from the body, thereby helping to counteract the ill effects in animals being treated with many pharmaceutical drugs. Nux vomica may also be a good choice for nervous dogs who, for instance, become excited when traveling by car, rushing from side to side or barking the whole time the vehicle is in motion.
How does Homeopathy work?
Homeopathy is based on ‘like cures like’. The remedy contains very diluted quantities of plant, animal or mineral substances that are refined and transformed into remedies with remarkable restorative properties. The remedy contains the “energy” of the substance and this stimulates the body’s own natural healing forces to alleviate the symptoms and bring about a return to health.
Homeopathic principles should be applied when using this remedy. Always read the product label. If symptoms persist consult your health care practitioner or vet promptly.
