The Homeopathic Remedy Aconite is very handy remedy to have around the house and in your portable emergency kit. If you have small children or pets in the house you NEED this! Aconite can calm the panic and fear of being injured and make dealing with life’s little traumas much easier.
Aconite is good for treating sudden colds and calming shocked nerves. In first aid, it helps soothe fear and reduce shock after a scare, bad news or an accident.
For sudden colds and acute fevers, Aconite eases symptoms in the initial phases – sniffles, sneezes and sore throats, especially if symptoms follow a cold wind or emotional stress.
Other applications include sleeplessness, restlessness, pain, burning headaches, eye irritation, acute ear pain and teething, especially if fear and/or restlessness are present.
Aconite is commonly used for:
Managing Shock and Fear:
Use Aconite for any type of shock or sudden injury that causes emotional distress or fearfulness in regular 20-minute intervals for up to six doses. Because of its effectiveness in treating shock, it is considered to be a valuable remedy to have in a first aid kit.
Aconite is indicated when illness presents with excessive thirst as a symptom. Aconite can be found in a liquid form and added to water to help with symptoms of thirst as well as addressing the illness at hand.
Sudden Onset of Colds and Illness:
Aconite is the remedy of choice when you suddenly feel a cold coming on. With general malaise or a feeling of sudden illness, aconite is usually the first remedy to use at the initial onset of a cold, the flu, or any rapid onset of fever, chills, sore throat, eye and/or ear infections. Aconite is best taken as soon as possible to stop symptoms when they begin.
Aches and Pains:
When illness presents with aches and pains common to the onset of the flu, aconite has been shown to halt or reduce symptoms quickly.
Aconite for Pets:
Pets can also be easily treated with homeopathic aconite, though it is harder to assess how they are feeling due to their inability to talk. Nevertheless, homeopathic aconite is indicated whenever a pet has been injured and is suffering from shock, or if they seem to have a sudden cold or fever that is coupled with restlessness.
