Withdrawal from addictive substances can be a complicated matter. Guidance from a professional can be both physically and emotionally supportive. The following remedies may ease difficulties during the time that stressful changes are taking place.
Aconitum: If the person is very fearful and/or traumatized while going through a withdrawal period, this remedy may be indicated. Intense palpitations may occur, which can make the person even more frightened and anxious.
Arsenicum album: A person who feels exhausted and extremely chilly, yet is driven by anxiety to move restlessly from place to place may benefit from this remedy. A person who needs Arsenicum may also be obsessive about small details and feel afraid to be alone.
Aurum metallicum: This remedy may be helpful during the withdrawal process, especially for individuals who feel disgusted with themselves, believe they have failed in life, or have become depressed and hopeless. Serious, work-oriented people who have turned to alcohol or other addictive substances as an outlet of tension are especially likely to respond to Aurum.
Carbo vegetabilis: When withdrawal symptoms include fatigue and faintness, with a lot of gas and belching this remedy can bring relief. The person may feel weak and very cold (especially in the extremities), yet still has a desperate craving for fresh or moving air. This remedy is often helpful for regaining energy after long-term illnesses or health problems.
Chamomilla: If a person is hypersensitive and finds discomfort unbearable to the point of seeming irritable and angry, this remedy may help. The person will feel worse from heat and worse at night. Relief from motion, especially vigorous rocking is a strong indication for Chamomilla.
Coffee cruda: This remedy is often helpful when a person’s mind is active and excitable. Sleeplessness is a common problem. The person is very sensitive to noise or any distraction. Neuralgic pains or headaches can occur and may be soothed by cold applications.
Nux vomica: A person who needs this remedy is nervous, irritable, impatient, easily offended, and oversensitive to light, noise, touch, and odors. Chilliness, cramps, and digestive upsets, with an urge to vomit or move the bowels (with limited results) are other indications. Nux vomica is known for its beneficial effects on conditions—acute or chronic—related to overuse of alcohol and drugs.
Staphysagria: This remedy may be helpful to a person who has had an abusive relationship or childhood, with deeply suppressed emotions, and has subsequently turned to alcohol. Habitually meek and mild-natured, and very sensitive to humiliation or embarrassment, the person may have started letting the anger out—to the point of throwing things or flying into rages. Staphysagria may help a person stay in balance without suppressing feelings.
Homeopathy Dosage Directions
Select the remedy that most closely matches the symptoms. In conditions where self-treatment is appropriate, unless otherwise directed by a physician, a lower potency (6X, 6C, 12X, 12C, 30X, or 30C) should be used. In addition, instructions for use are usually printed on the label.
