Ignatia Amara: To Help Calm the Mind
Ignatia amara is one of many homeopathic ingredients that are considered to be somewhat of a wild card in alternative medicine. It is derived from the seedpod of the fruit from a tree that is native in China and the Philippines. It contains strychnine, considered to be a highly toxic poison. Needless to say, some raise their eyebrows and wonder why this would be an effective treatment for anything! However, like many other toxic ingredients that are often used in homeopathy, Ignatia amara can be diluted to a point where it is no longer dangerous, and is considered to be a great alternative treatment for nervous conditions.
Some of the conditions that it is commonly used to provide relief for include
- Emotional shock
Ignatia amara is considered to be an effective alternative therapy for grief and bereavement. Not because it takes away the pain and anguish the patient may be feeling, but because it is believed to make the sufferer feel mentally stronger and more capable of handling their personal issues.
It is recommended that you seek the guidance and expertise of an experienced homeopath and your primary care provider before taking Ignatia amara. Not only does this substance require a homeopath to formulate the proper potency due to its toxicity, but it is always recommended to discuss changes to your health plan before beginning a new regimen to ensure that you are receiving the best care possible.
