The homeopathic remedy Staphysagria is said to help when symptoms are triggered by a certain emotion, for example intense anger, humiliation or an insult. Homeopaths also recommend it for insect bites, puncture wounds and cuts – even after surgical cuts during operations. Read more about the effects, dosage and use of Staphysagria here.

What is Staphysagria?

Delphinium staphisagria (St. Stephen’s herb, Delphinium staphisagria) is a plant native to southern Europe from the buttercup family (Ranunculaceae). In summer, St. Stephen’s Wort bears pale blue or purple flowers with green leaf tips. Their seeds – the so-called “Stephan’s grains” contain the poisonous alkaloid delphinine, which leads to respiratory paralysis or cardiac arrest when consumed and causes severe inflammation when it comes into contact with the skin.

This toxic effect has been used against lice and parasites since ancient times, which is why the Stephanskorn are also called “lice pepper” or “lice seeds”. The seeds were also used to treat itchy skin conditions and warts, as an emetic and to cleanse the intestines. In order to produce the homeopathic remedy Staphysagria, the seeds of St. Stephen’s herb are ground with lactose, mixed with alcohol and then potentised.

When is Staphysagria used?

The homeopathic remedy is often used for psychosomatic illnesses – i.e. complaints that have psychological causes but manifest themselves physically. Staphysagria is said to work particularly well against the physical consequences of anger and grief, especially if these have been suppressed for a long time. The grief usually arises from humiliating and hurtful situations that the person concerned does not know how to deal with.

In addition, according to therapists, it is possible to try treatment with Staphysagria in the case of poorly healing cuts and inflamed insect bites. This also applies after surgery. Behind these complaints are purely physical causes.
