Aconitum Napellus: the first remedy to think of for anxiety

This was the first homeopathic remedy that I was prescribed and in a few seconds it took me from a state of complete panic to a place of calm where palpitations stopped and I could start to think clearly. Aconitum is a major panic attack remedy and it is very useful when there is extreme restlessness of mind and body, a state of fear and anxiety, cold sweats and palpitation. The person needing aconite is fearing death and dying and fearing of being in public spaces something that a lot of people may feel these days.

Sadness, social isolation, and aversion to talking are the predominant symptoms, along with brooding about past events. There is also an aversion to speaking, and sudden mood changes may occur. Symptoms are usually worst at night.

Arsenicum Album: anxiety about health

One of the most important anxiety medicine for homeopaths and the first one we think about when the anxiety is linked to gastric symptoms such as loose stools or indigestion with a burning sensation. The person needing Arsenicum may look anxious and drawn and tend to be fastidious, they worry about their health Fear and restlessness is a prominent symptom, these days this can be seen as fear of hearing the news as they cause apprehension and dread. They can have an overwhelming feeling that everything will go wrong, and if unwell they despair of their recovery. These are people that are hard to reassure and usually feel worst after midnight and find it hard to sleep.
