The Many Benefits of Cocculus


English Name: Cocculus, Indian Cockle


Latin Name: Anamirta Cocculus


Type: Homeopathic


What is Cocculus Made From?

Cocculus is prepared from the fruit seeds of the cocculus indicus plant, a climbing shrub native to India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Sri Lanka. The seeds are ground and permeated in alcohol to create a tincture.


What is Cocculus?

Cocculus is a homeopathic remedy often used for motion disturbances such as vertigo and associated symptoms of dizziness, nausea and disorientation.  


Homeopathic medicines may be produced from healing substances, neutral substances, or highly toxic substances. Yet through the unique homeopathic process, they all become safe, deep acting medicines. In fact, remedies made from poisonous or toxic material have effects opposite from the original substance. Homeopathic remedies are based on the belief that “like cures like,” in tiny dilution.


Medicinal Uses of Cocculus

Key homeopathic uses for Cocculus include symptoms of vertigo and motion sickness, such as dizziness, nausea, lack of appetite, anxiety and weakness. It can also be used for people suffering from jet lag, insomnia and exhaustion due to tension or stress.


From a homeopathic remedy profile perspective, Cocculus is well-suited for people who experience difficulty processing concepts, have trouble articulating thoughts, feel time is passing too quickly and have a poor memory. They may be overly concerned about other people and tend to interfere in others’ affairs. When caring for people who are sick, they may neglect their own health.
