When You Feel Like You’re Freaking

Q: I sometimes feel that I may freak out. Add to that my anxiety, or apprehension, and you have a classical case — of ‘me’ waking up at the middle of the night. Please suggest a homeopathic remedy that can work for me.

A: Certain homeopathic medicines have so many uses that just covering them once isn’t enough. Sometimes, it just takes a slightly different description for a sufferer to grab a hold of the medicine’s bigger, broader pattern.

But occasionally — war, or no war — we can just freak out. Maybe, we’ve had our fill of anxiety-ridden news, or we’re under pressure at work, or maybe we’ve simply put too many scary Halloween decorations into our subconscious [That’s just around the corner, you know].

When you feel like you’re freaking, homeopathy has the answer.

Let’s say a sufferer wakes in the middle of the night with a startle, maybe, even a scream. Something dire feels imminent.

If it happens once? Eh, ignore it. It happens to all of us.

If it happens twice? Well, still, no big deal.

But, if this becomes a pattern that continues — if the sufferer is awash in a sense of impending doom — that’s the time to consider employing a homeopathic medicine.

Aconitum napellus 200 has been shown to stabilise the feelings of upset and dread from jolting awake during the night with overwhelming apprehension.

Awakening with a sense of foreboding can sometimes stem from too much worry during the day. The sufferer may feel completely justifiable in their night-time fears because there’s a legitimate concern that feels so real. In fact, they may feel so righteous in their angst that they believe it can’t possibly be merely a psychological hurdle that can be overcome.

But, indeed, it can be. We know that homeopathy acts on the presenting condition. But, don’t forget, it has been reported to act deeply on other levels as well.

So, when you feel like you’re freaking — and, have the nightmares to prove it — consider reading more about Aconitum napellus [Aconite, for short]. See if it applies to your situation, as it has for many individuals over the last two centuries.

Historically, Aconitum napellus 200 has successfully eradicated all-encompassing night-time panic when utilised once a day, for a few days, right before bed-time. When the condition is much better, we stop the medicine. If the condition returns, Aconite remains ready to finish the job.

And, then we can sleep like a baby without the fear of waking up in the midst of a panic attack.
