Solidago in homeopathy: properties, benefits and uses (all you need to know)

What is Solidago?

The homeopathic remedy Solidago is used for kidney diseases that are accompanied by insomnia, nausea and a tendency to catch colds. Patients experience the affected organs as sore and swollen and are extremely sensitive to touch in the relevant area.
The pain emanating from the kidneys can radiate to the thighs, abdomen and bladder region. Despite the fact that urination causes problems, it is perceived as relieving or improving; the urine, which comes out only sparingly, is either reddish-brown in color or clear and foul-smelling.

In conjunction with Berberis, goldenrod is also used as a flushing and detoxifying agent in cases of urinary tract disease.
In addition, goldenrod is used to treat fibroids in the uterus.

Application information

Dosage forms of goldenrod

Goldenrod is used in potencies between 2X and 12X.

Solidago dosage

Solidago to support the healing process in urinary tract infections can be given daily for up to 14 days with five globules in the potency 3X or 6X. Chronic edema is treated with D30 potencies and given once a day or every two days with five globules. An optimal effect is shown when the globules are dissolved in water.

From a homeopathic point of view, Solidago is not a prophylactic or constitutional remedy, so it is only given in the case of clear symptoms.

Solidarity effect

Solidago acts on the kidneys and urinary system, blood and respiratory tract.

Solidago in pregnancy

Many pregnant women complain of swollen feet. Ankles and fingers are also increasingly affected by edema during pregnancy. These symptoms can be treated homeopathically with Solidago, provided that gestosis (“pregnancy poisoning”) and other primary diseases have been ruled out. The drug continues to be administered during pregnancy when urinary tract infections subside; the main symptom here is very light or very dark urine.

Solidago is an important means of accelerating and intensifying the healing phase. It is also available to drain any antibiotics that may have been administered in this context.

Solidago for the baby

Solidago has proven effective in babies with jaundice. Jaundice is very severe and sets in right after birth.

Solidago for dogs, horses and cats

In animals, Solidago is used to treat kidney infections, prostate enlargement and bladder infections. The skin rashes and rheumatic symptoms that occur at the same time as kidney problems are positively influenced by Solidago.

Side effects of Solidago

When Solidago is given for the first time, the initial aggravation may be a strong but usually unproductive urge to urinate. In the context of or suspected gestosis, high blood pressure, cardiac insufficiency or an underlying kidney disease, Solidago should not be taken independently, even in homeopathic preparation.
