Aconitum napellus is a homeopathic remedy that is often used at the onset of an acute illness. But aconite is also used in many other areas. This homeopathic remedy is said to be very effective, especially for acute symptoms after a shock or shock and as a pain reliever. Read here when aconite is used in homeopathy and what the right dosage is.

When is Aconite used?

The plant Aconitum napellus (monkshood) is extremely poisonous. For processing into homeopathic medicinal products, the fresh plant with the tuber collected at the time of flowering is used, but extremely diluted.

What is homeopathic aconite good for? It is often used for feverish infections. Especially when the cold occurs after staying in a dry, cold wind, aconite is often the remedy that is supposed to catch the disease in the early stages.

Aconitum is also said to have an effect on the psyche. It is intended to alleviate acute symptoms of all kinds that are directly related to fright or shock. For example, you can try to treat headaches, sleep problems or infections that occur after such an event with Aconitum.

Aconitum is also said to be able to relieve neuralgic complaints with numbness and pain. The same applies to eye infections, coughs and larynx infections.

Aconitum is also sometimes administered in the early stages of various inflammatory conditions. However, as soon as pus or larger amounts of mucus have formed, the remedy is no longer recommended.

The symptoms of Aconitum sufferers are often very severe and come on very suddenly, especially pain, fever and anxiety.

Aconite is suitable for the following complaints

In summary, aconite should be helpful for the following diseases and health problems:

  • eye inflammation
  • “black eye”
  • anxiety states
  • bladder infection
  • colds
  • Sore throat
  • earache
  • laryngitis
  • croupy cough
  • fear of surgery
  • bleeding
  • insomnia
  • shock after injury
  • indigestion
  • toothache

Symptoms indicative of aconite

There are some typical symptoms and complaints that should point to Aconitum as a suitable homeopathic medicine:

  • Consequences of fright, shock, accident
  • great anxiety and restlessness
  • acute, sudden onset of symptoms
  • Consequences of dry cold and wind
  • sudden, rapid increase in fever
  • dry, hot skin
  • neuralgic pains with numbness
  • face flushed when lying down, becoming pale on rising
  • palpitations with fear
  • great thirst for cold water
  • no urination possible
  • rapid pulse
  • symptoms improve outdoors, at rest and/or when sweating
  • Complaints are aggravated by cold, dry wind, in the evening and at night, by violent emotions, by pressure and touch, by noise and light, during menstruation, in the blazing sun and/or by inhaling tobacco smoke

If the symptoms persist or get worse, always go to a doctor and have the cause clarified. This is especially true when it comes to illnesses in babies and children.

Aconite for baby and child

In a child who, according to homeopathic teaching, needs aconite, the symptoms are typically said to start very suddenly and often very intensely. Often this happens shortly after the child has been outdoors in cold, dry weather, and may even have sweated.

Colds, coughs, sore throats and other ailments can appear afterwards. The remedy should work best in the first 24 hours after the onset of symptoms.

It is typical: the children are restless and anxious, often tossing and turning in bed. Noise and music have a disturbing effect on them. The little patients often describe pain as unbearable. In addition, the children do not want to be touched on the affected body parts.

The sick child’s skin is hot and dry. The face is often flushed, especially when lying down. It then becomes pale as it straightens up.

The Aconitum child often craves ice-cold drinks, but in any case has a strong thirst.

If a sick child is irritable and restless at night, you may also give them Aconite.

In the newborn, Aconitum can help overcome birth trauma, especially after a cesarean section or when the birth is very long and complicated. If aconite is given immediately after birth, it is said to reduce the risk of neonatal jaundice.
