Aconitum napellus is a homeopathic
remedy that is sometimes known simply as "Aconite".
Aconitum napellus may be helpful in cases of fevers
- especially if accompanied by thirst and sweating. It is also used to
ease violent dry coughs.
Other indications for this remedy include the symptoms manifesting themselves
suddenly, often at night, or following a chill (severe drop in temperature)
or a frightening experience. Whatever the symptoms, if they are accompanied
by extreme fear and anxiety, then aconitum napellus is a remedy to consider.
Aconitum napellus is thought to be
most effective at the beginning of an illness of dis-ease.
