Hypericum in homeopathy (all you need to know)

The homeopathic remedy Hypericum, obtained from the mother tincture of Hypericum perforatum, is suitable for those suffering from depression, but also for trauma and pain. Let’s find out better.

The Hypericum homeopathic remedy is obtained from the tincture of the whole fresh flowering plant of Hypericum perforatum and from subsequent dilutions and dynamizations in a hydroalcoholic solution.

The color, on the other hand, derives from hypericin, a substance of which the flower is rich. The fruits are oval capsules which open when ripe, revealing the cylindrical black or dark brown seeds.

Today the plant is recognized with various therapeutic properties, including inflammatory, antiseptic, healing, analgesic, diuretic, purifying, antioxidant, vasoprotective properties, but above all its antidepressant activity is known. The antidepressant property of hypericum is attributable to the content of substances such as hypericin, hyperforin and some classes of flavonoids, particularly present in the leaves and flowering tops.

The combined action of these substances favors the increase of serotonin levels in the central nervous system, thus stimulating a biological antidepressant activity, which counteracts mood disorders and helps restore emotional balance.

When using Hypericum

Hypericum is a homeopathic remedy that acts mainly on the central and peripheral nervous system. In general, Hypericum is the suitable remedy in all cases of neuritis, when there is a degeneration, of a traumatic, infectious, toxic or other nature, of a nerve or group of nerves with pain going up along the path of the nerve.

This makes it an excellent remedy for pain therapy of any origin. Hypericum also promotes the healing of all types of wounds and prevents their infection. Hypericum is also indicated for respiratory disorders.

Hypericum homeopathic remedy is generally used in the following main cases:

  • nervous system disorders, depression, fatigue and lethargy; neuralgia, neuritis, inflammation of the sciatic nerve
  • pain of any nature and in any location, especially those caused by trauma, low back pain, dysmenorrhea, hallux valgus
  • wounds of all kinds, ingrown toenails
  • skin problems, burns, dermatitis, erythema , herpes
  • respiratory system disorders, cough, asthma
  • digestive system disorders, bloating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation
  • cardiovascular disorders, palpitations, hemorrhoids

Dosage and administration

In all cases, 6CH dilution, 3 granules or 10 drops 3-6 times a day. In cases of wounds and skin problems, applications with preparations for external use are preferable, in association or exclusively.

Who is Hypericum recommended for

The Hypericum subject is anxious, hypersensitive, excited, wakes up at night with pulsations and dilated pupils, feels heartbeats in the head, is anxious, agitated.

It then progressively evolves towards depression, having exhausted its reserves of nervous energy. It therefore belongs to the category of people who, following a trauma, fear, shock, fall into nervous depression.

Hypericum is one of the best remedies for the treatment of depression (it is no coincidence that the plant from which it originates is called the plant antidepressant ) and also for the neurosis of menopause.
