Drosera

Symptoms

Drosera is a violent agent and has a similarity to Ipecacuanha. But there the cough comes with force and with Drosera it increases slowly. The cough comes from deep below, whereby the lower rib- and abdominal muscles are strongly stressed that they hurt after some time when coughing. Although the cough tortures the patient day and night, it becomes really suffocating around midnight. The cough gets worse as soon as he lies down in the evening, but eventually he can fall asleep. Usually he wakes up from the dry cough after midnight, especially around two o’clock. In the morning, the cough is loosening up; talking, laughing and singing makes it worse.

 

Dosage

Dros. C 200, every 4-6 hours, until the cough is significantly better.

 

Tips

The Drosera-person or the child needs very strongly the feeling that protection is given and everything is in good order. Parents have to forget their daily worries and fears. Through their powerful, secure and calm appearance, they can do a lot to get the disease faster under control. But be careful with the diet. All heavy food, especially dairy products, should be removed from the daily schedule and be replaced by nutritious, light food with good oils. Acidic food such as tomatoes, oranges, lemons and so on worsen the Drosera cough.

 

 

Lachesis

 Symptoms

The Lachesis-cough is hacking and hollow. It is caused by a strong tickle in the larynx. The phlegm is very solid, but coughing up brings great relief. After waking up the cough is the worst. But after a while a lot of phlegm can be coughed up and the sick person feels better. He can wake up at night and get shortness of breath from the cough. Outside, the cough is worse, as well as due to a sudden change in temperature.

 

Dosage

Lach. C 200, one dose every 4-6 hours until the cough is significantly better.

 

Tips

As a Lachesis-person, you are doing much good to your immune system by avoiding completely alcohol for a longer period of time. Eat fresh fruit and drink highly diluted, fresh juices, preferably from berries. In the late afternoon, spoil yourself with a small meal. Take plenty of time for yourself and perhaps read a book you have been wanting to read for a long time.

Music fromTchaikovsky in the background will help you to get into a deeper meditative mood.

 

 

Lycopodium

Symptoms

Lycopodium-cough is very violent. The patient clears his throat a lot and makes such loud caws that the attention of his surroundings is inevitably drawn to him. Also in sleep he barks so loudly that nobody can sleep.

 

Dosage

Lyc. C 200 one dose, repeat if necessary

 

Tips

For you as a busy Lycopodium-person, it would be advisable to take a few days off. Make a lot of exercises in the fresh air. Eat only one meal, preferably later in the day, and drink plenty of warm tea. A visit to the theatre, cinema or opera will do you good.

 

 

Phosphorous

Symptoms

The phosphorus-man is active and likes to be in motion as long as he does not have to lie in bed. He enters and exits the house without putting on his jacket and scarf. Normally he doesn’t mind, but when his immune system is weak, he catches a cough. His throat chakra is well developed. He has the talent to be a speaker or a singer, however, it may overstrain this organ, and then it sits in his throat to the point of voicelessness.

 

Dosage

Phosphorus C 200, every 4-6 hours one dose, until the cough is significantly better.

 

Tips

Your immune system needs the stimulation of ice-cold, refreshing drinks to defend the disease. Don’t follow the advice to drink something warm because it is commonly believed that cold drinks are harmful for coughing. Despite your hunger, you should not eat so much.

 

 

Pulsatilla

Symptoms

 

Dosage

Pulsatilla C 200, one dose every 4 hours, later as needed.

 

Tips

Avoid food totally for a while. Initially, as long as you are not thirsty, do not drink anything, later, when you are thirsty, drink lots of homemade lemonade sweetened with honey. This will quickly get your immune system back on its feet.

 

 

Sepia

Symptoms

Sometimes, coughing can prevent sleep until midnight. After midnight, the cough wakes up the sick person again and again. He must sit up to relieve himself. During the day, the sepia-person can usually lie down quietly without coughing. Outside, especially when it is cold and damp, the cough worsens. In fog, everything is even worse.

 

Dosage

Sepia C 200, 2-4x daily until healing.

 

Tips

As a sepia-person, you have once again taken your duties too seriously and did not give enough time to yourself. Now is the time to give your immune system a chance and withdraw from everyday life. The best way for your immune system to react is to start fasting completely, even though you might feel like eating all kinds of things. It is good for your lungs and cough if you avoid sour foods, especially your beloved vinegar.

It doesn’t matter whether you just lie down and sleep or read and hear Chopin or go away on a trip and walk. The main thing is to have joy and recover.

 

 

Silicea

Symptoms

Arsenic- and nux-vomica-persons are also getting cold, but unlike Silicea they are able to get warm.

 

Dosage

Silicea C 200, only one dose or 1 x daily, until there is no more need.

 

Tips

You’ve dived too much into your work. Now your immune system asks you to drop your too determined, merciless path. Instead of working, dive deep into yourself and let the immune system do what is necessary.

 

 

Sulfur

Symptoms

The sulfur-cough is usually very dry at the beginning, especially at night when you lie down. After a few days it becomes loose during the day, but totally dry at night, mainly during sleep. Mostly there are two coughing attacks one by one (as with Phos, Puls, Merc). Sleep is very disturbed by the cough.

 

Dosage

Sulfur C 200, every 2 – 4 hours, until the feeling of heat goes and a healthy appetite sets in.

 

Tips

As a sulfur-person, you have no difficulty in fasting as long as you want. Fast to support your immune system and only drink until all the lethargy has flushed out of you.

 

Tuberculinum

Symptoms

Tuberculinum-cough has many forms, but is usually long-lasting and tiring. Mostly it has a pronounced sleep symptomatology. If he has a cold, he is slightly underheated.

 

Dosage

Tuberculinum C 200, 1 – 2 times a day until the disease no longer affects you.

 

Tips

As a Tuberculinum-person you freeze easily, but you need a lot of fresh air and exercise. You tend to be lethargic and suffer from your weakness. Exercise is always good for you.
