Information about the agent

How do you recognize patients who need Sabadilla?

Sabadilla shows dried out mucous membranes. One suffers from the constant urge to sneeze, a runny nose and dry, light and draught-sensitive eyes with a feeling of pressure on the eyeballs. The secretions thicken. A nostril is clogged, you breathe while snoring. Odors are misperceived. The throat is sore, inflamed, one clears one’s throat a lot with slight blood admixtures, has painful, spasmodic swallowing difficulties with a foreign body sensation and a lot of sweetish salivation.

Sore throat starts on the left, moves to the right. The right tonsil is swollen, hardened. Ears hurt or itch. The extremities burn, are paralyzed and tremble. Feet swell while walking, are heavy, soles sensitive. The face appears puffy and red, feels warm. Sabadilla shivers a lot, has cravings for sweet and hot food, at times abhors meat, wine and sour foods. Stomach cramps with emptiness when walking. Burning in the rectum or urethra after defecation and urination.

Sabadilla patients are hyper-nervous, react hysterically, startled and afraid that body parts will shrink. You are prone to mania and anger, need to calm yourself with cold water on your head. During mental exertion, she is overcome by leaden fatigue, headaches in the forehead or temples, and there are visual and hearing disorders. Concentration is generally lacking. Characteristic of Sabadilla are periodically recurring complaints at the same time of day, often in the morning and at full and/or new moon.
