Whether it’s been a cold, flu or general grogginess, I’m sure we’ve all been tempted to stay in bed at some point this month! February’s homeopathic remedy, BRYONIA ALBA, is one that is certainly fitting for this time of the year.
According to Dr. John Henry Clarke in his “Dictionary of Materia Medica‘, this remedy is made from a tincture of the root of the plant, White Bryony of the cucurbitaceae order, procured before flowering has taken place. This remedy is very similar to Arnica Montana in that it is useful at the earliest onset of acute conditions.
Dr. James Tyler Kent, the well known Eclectic Physician and Professor of Materia Medica in various medical colleges has underlined the fact that the Bryonia patient has a reputation for being a bad tempered, difficult and sometimes delirious individual who just wants to be left alone in peace and quiet. George Vithoulkas the Director of the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy in Alonissos, Greece flags up the restlessness and anxiety likely to be seen in the Bryonia state.
Dr. John Henry Clarke in his Dictionary of Materia Medica lists Bryonia Alba for use with asthma, bronchitis, cough, dental problems and eczema. Bryonia Alba can, of course, be useful with many different types of pain and is often the homeopathic remedy of choice in painful first-aid situations.
