The discharge may shift from side to side, affecting only one nostril at a time.

What is Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a form of alternative medicine that works on the principle of like treats like. Homeopathic practitioners maintain that an ill person can be treated using a substance that can produce, in a healthy person, symptoms similar to those of the illness. One of the unique things about Homeopathy is that different people are given different medicine depending on physical and psychological state of the patient, both of which are considered important.

Homeopathic medicine is a natural pharmaceutical system that utilises microdoses of substances from the plant, mineral and animal kingdom to arouse a person's natural healing substances from the plant, mineral and animal kingdoms to arouse a person’s natural healing response.
Homeopathy is a sophisticated method of individualising small doses of medicine in order to initiate that healing response. Unlike conventional drugs, which act primarily by having by having direct effect upon physiological process related to a person’s symptoms’ homeopathic medicines are, thought to work by stimulating the person’s immune system, which raises his or her overall level of health thereby enabling him or her to re-establish health and prevent disease.

Hahnemann's System

Today the king of alternative remedies worldwide, it was only in the 19th century that homeopathy developed scientifically. The credit for this goes to the German physician, Dr Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), a practitioner of conventional medicine.

In the 18th century, medicines contained toxic amounts of arsenic, lead and mercury. Prevailing medical practices included purging, blistering and bloodletting—even the use of leeches—to drain the body of poisons that supposedly caused disease. Hahnemann believed that these practices did more harm than good.

Distressed, he gave up medical practice and kept the home fires burning by translating medical, scientific and botanical treatises.

About Aconite


Botanical Name :
Aconitum napellus.
Family : Ranunculaciae

Description :----
The plant is a hardy perennial, with a fleshy, spindle-shaped root, palecoloured when young, but subsequently acquiring a dark brown skin. The stem is about 3 feet high, with dark green, glossy leaves, deeply divided in palmate manner and flowers in erect clusters of a dark blue colour. The shape of the flower is specially designed to attract and utilize bee visitors, especially the humble bee. The sepals are purple - purple being specially attractive to bees - and are fancifully shaped, one of them being in the form of a hood. The petals are only represented by the two very curious nectaries within the hood, somewhat in the form of a hammer; the stamens are numerous and lie depressed in a bunch at the mouth of the flower. They are pendulous at first, but rise in succession and place their anthers forward in such a way that a bee visiting the flower for nectar is dusted with the pollen, which he then carries to the next flower he visits and thereby fertilizes the undeveloped fruits, which are in a tuft in the centre of the stamens, each carpel containing a single seed.

The chief collecting centres for foreign Aconite root have been the Swiss Alps, Salzburg, North Tyrol and Vorarlberg. Much was also formerly collected in Germany. This official Aconite is also the species generally cultivated in gardens.

Part Used:----
The leaves, stem, flowering tops and root: the leaves and tops fresh, the root dried. The leaves and flowering tops are of less importance, they are employed for preparing Extract of Aconitum, and for this purpose are cut when the flowers are just breaking into blossom and the leaves are in their best condition.

Chemical Constituents:----
It contents 0.3 to 1 per cent alkaloidal matter, consisting of Aconitine - crystalline, acrid and highly toxic - with the alkaloids Benzaconine (Picraconitine) and Aconine.Aconite acid, starch, etc., are also present.

Medicinal Action and Uses:----
Homeopathic physicians prescribe Aconite for those patients whose symptoms resemble the effects of the poison - who seem distressed or fearful and complain of thirst and unbearable aches and pains that accompany their illnesses.It also used for Eye and ear infections - inflamed eyes with aching, burning pain, typically due to injury or conjunctive. The eyes may be oversensitive to light. Ear infection develop rapidly, causing intense pain, bright red ears, and hypersensitivity to noise. Symptoms may be accompanied by a high fever and restless, fearful agitation.Labor's problems - strong fear of impending death experienced by a mother during labor. There may be urine retention in either the mother or baby, or in both the mother and baby, immediately after the birth of the child, especially if the mother experienced fear during labor.
