Bryonia - Homeopathy for a grumpy bear

May 22, 2017 3:33:37 PM EDT

Bryonia 30 , 6 or 200 - Homeopathy for a "grumpy bear"

Bryonia Homeopathy

Joint Pain & Backaches • Headaches & Hangovers • Achy Colds / Flu • Worse with Motion

In recent blog we took a closer look at the number one single homeopathic remedy for joint pain - Rhus tox.  Now it's time to look at another popular remedy, Byronia.  Like Rhus tox, Byronia has applications for joint pain and backaches, but with very different homeopathic modalities.  For the purpose of this article, you can think of a "modality" as a "tendency to conform to a general pattern,"1 especially what makes symptoms better or worse.  While those needing homeopathic Rhus tox often feel better with slight movement and stretching, the homeopathic remedy Bryonia is just the opposite.  In fact, in his Materia Media, Clarke describes Rhus and Bryonia as "antidotes" for one another.  In Boericke's version of the Materia Medica he describes Bryonia's "aggravation" as "WORSE, warmth, any motion, morning, eating, hot weather, exertion, touch. Cannot sit up; gets faint and sick."

Stress Awareness Month

Why stress is still public health enemy #1

It's national stress awareness month and we want you to know that stress is still a major public health problem.  According to a recent data, 44% of Americans feel more stressed than they did five years ago and 1 in 5 Americans report experiencing "Extreme Stress"; but the data also shows an impact on actual physical health.  Stress increases the risk of heart diseas 40%; it increases the risk of heartacks by 25% and stroke by 50%.  40% of stressed people overeat and 44% lose sleep every night.  Recent findings also suggest that stress "shrinks the brain".  And finally, stress costs the nation 300 billion every year in medical bills and lost productivity.1  Since this month is national stress awareness month we think it's important to do our part in building awareness of stress issues and also, awareness in some of the homeopathic remedies that can help reduce stress in your life.

How cell salts complement your internal body cleanse & colon therapy?
