Arum triphyllum is a homeopathic stock extracted from Arisaema triphyllum (Jack-in-the-Pulpit, Bog onion, Brown dragon, Indian turnip, Wake robin or Wild turnip). This three-leaved plant of the Araceae family is native to eastern North America. The mother tincture of the homeopathic is obtained by drying the plant’s roots. Arum Triphullum is mainly used to treat ENT disorders such as laryngitis .
Arum triphyllum is recommended for the treatment of ENT disorders. Laryngitis (inflammation of the larynx) is the main condition that can be treated with this remedy, which is well-suited to oedematous, stridulous laryngitis and chronic laryngitis. As a matter of fact, all forms of laryngitis (infectious, bacterial or viral) can be treated by Arum triphyllum. Laryngitis’ basic symptoms include breathing difficulties, dry cough, hoarse voice or burning sensation in the larynx. A fever sometimes accompanies these symptoms.
The following abnormalities can be treated with Arum triphyllum: burning and cracked tongue, salivation problems, burning and painful inflammation of the mouth and palate while drinking or eating. In addition, throat pain (constriction, burning soreness, swelling and inflammation of glands and throat) and certain respiratory infections can also be treated with this homeopathic remedy.
Generally, the prescribed dose for treating ENT infections is five granules of Arum triphyllum 5 CH per hour. These capsules must be taken orally. When the pain and symptoms begin to fade, it is advisable to gradually space out the intakes before completely stopping the treatment once the pain disappears. To treat dysphonia (with nasal obstruction and diplophonia), take the same dose of Arium triphyllum 5 CH, that is to say 5 capsules per hour.
Good to know: Respecting the dosage and administration of Arum triphyllum is imperative because it can become an irritable poison. Paradoxically, even if the remedy is effective against ENT disorders, if it is improperly used it can cause itching and inflammation of the mucous membranes.
