Nux vomica - Boericke & Tafel, Nature's Way

Nux vomica, From Nux vomica, the poison nut tree. For the temporary relief of acid indigestion gas or sour stomach.

You may feel irritable or impatient; sensitive to noise and light. Symptoms often associated with overindulgence of stimulants, alcohol or fatty foods.

The homeopathic remedy is made from the dried, ripe seeds, which contain strychnine, a powerful poison which acts on the central nervous system; in small doses strychnine makes perceptions more vivid and increases production of saliva; in larger doses it causes tetany or muscular spasm, and death from respiratory failure.

Several physical types respond well to Nux, although self-reliance, efficiency and a liking for hard work tend to be common characteristics, which explains why many Nux types are managers, supervisors, or entrepreneurs. Some Nux types are well-groomed, hearty, and full of life, others slouch as if they have been up all night; many are thin, prematurely bald, suffer from indigestion and irascibility, and aspire to the finer things of life; complexion may be dry, lined and sallow, with rings under the eyes.

Nux vomica is frequently prescribed by Homeopaths for conditions that occur from too much food, coffee, or alcohol, which can also make the patient irritable.

Nux Vomica was made as a remedy by recognizing the reactions of healthy individuals to undiluted doses. The changes in the individuals were recorded.

When a Homeopath sees a patient with a set of similar symptoms to the recorded ones induced by sulphur, they then prescribe it in an extremely dilute form. In a highly diluted dosage, Nux vomica can eliminate the symptoms that it creates when it is at full strength.
