Ignatia amara is
a homeopathic remedy that is also known as simply "Ignatia".
Ignatia amara is most associated with the emotional
condition of grief/loss and the experiences associated with it. For example,
ignatia amara may be helpful in cases of sadness and
grief following an emotional loss (e.g. due to bereavement or seperation),
or feelings of emptyness following a period of grief, fear, or anxiety.
It is appropriate even in situations
in which these emotions are present but tears will not flow - or when
tears do follow laughter or even hysteria, grief or emotional loss
being the underlying cause. Sometimes physical symptoms are also present
and associated with emotional loss, e.g. depression, sleeplessness due
to shock, violent headaches, indigestion, piles,
hiccups, or sore throat.
