The homeopathic remedy Bryonia is primarily intended to act on “inner skin” – such as mucous membranes, meninges, pleura, peritoneum or synovial membranes. The assumption: Bryonia should be able to relieve acute inflammation of these skins. Therefore, flu-like infections and inflammatory processes in the respiratory tract as well as disorders of the digestive organs and joints are treated with it. Read more about the effects and uses of Bryonia.

What is Bryonia?

Bryonia alba is a member of the gourd family. It is a climbing plant common in Europe that climbs up hedges, fences and bushes and can grow several meters tall.

Bryonia alba has light green leaves and produces black berries. The white bryony is a rare plant. Bryonia alba has therefore long been replaced by bryony (Bryonia dioica), which is much more common. It is considered equivalent in its effect. Both bryony species have a tuberous root, which contains many bitter substances and is used medicinally.

All parts of the plant are poisonous to humans. When touched, they irritate the skin and blisters may form. If the berries, the roots or other parts of the plant are eaten, vomiting, colic and bloody diarrhea occur. Excitement, delirium and seizures can also occur. To prepare the homeopathic remedy, the juice of the fresh root is used.

When is Bryonia used?

The remedy is particularly suitable for the treatment of diseases that develop slowly and become progressively worse. Bryonia is also suitable for complaints that begin after bodily waste has dried up. The symptoms can be caused by a cold, infections, but also anger and anger.

Many of the typical symptoms are related to dryness. Thus, the Bryonia cough and inflammation are often dry and therefore very painful, and constipation often occurs.

Bryonia may also have an effect on the psyche – particularly irritable and choleric people should benefit from it.
