Information about the agent

How do you recognize patients who need cyclamen?

Blonde, pale patients are predestined to be used for cyclamen. They are easily irritable and physically weak, and suffer from poor memory. One tends to be perfectionist, perceives mistakes as personal failures and cries over them. The resulting feelings of guilt are assigned to others, so that one withdraws more and more.

This resulted in a lack of concentration, an increased need for sleep and constant brooding. It comes to vertigo with headache and visual disturbances in the form of flickering or flickering in front of the eyes. Taste and smell are reduced, as is appetite. You only eat small amounts, immediately feel uncomfortably full, have to belch, often vomit spontaneously or have diarrhea after eating. Both a salty taste when eating and a craving for sweet drinks, preferably lemonade, are noticeable. At the same time you want to eat inedible things.

The feet are sweaty, it itches all over. Women notice an irregular menstrual cycle, with the menstrual period starting prematurely and feeling very heavy and painful. Whitening and a feeling of tension in the breasts occur. Milk is often produced after the period, even if you are not pregnant. Young patients tend to have severe acne before the onset of menstruation. During the bleeding, the acne symptoms subside noticeably.
