What is Gelsemium?

Gelsemium is a homeopathic remedy that targets coordination, balance and fearfulness.

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 Gelsemium

Key homeopathic uses for Gelsemium include vertigo, nervous system disorders that cause muscle aches, head and scalp pain, menstrual pain, and fever-related discomfort such as flushing, shivering and perspiration. Gelsemium is also used for people suffering from specific fears and phobias, such as stage fright or exam nerves.


From a homeopathic remedy profile perspective, Gelsemium is well-suited to those who tend to become sedentary, moving as little as possible.
