Baptisia tinctoria is a homoeopathic remedy made ??from a plant that is native to North America. This plant, known as wild indigo, belongs to the Fabaceae family and its decoction was already widely used by Native Americans to treat wounds and bruises.
Apart from its disinfecting properties, the plant is renowned for its numerous medicinal virtues, although its main field of interest remains infectiology. Indeed, Baptisia tinctoria is particularly used for the prevention and treatment of many infantile and infectious diseases. For the manufacturing of the homoeopathic remedy, one mainly uses the plant’s root and the bottom of its stem.
The homeopathic remedy Baptisia tinctoria is recommended in case of stomach flu and is also useful for most intestinal infections. It is particularly used to treat infectious diseases that are accompanied by a set of very specific symptoms that include heavy breathing, frequent urination, foul-smelling diarrhoea and heavy perspiration.
In addition, most patients have a high fever and feel deeply exhausted. Furthermore, their tongue is dry, cracked and of yellowish colour. Baptisia tinctoria is also the ideal remedy for flu and typhoid fever, and can also be used in case of throat infections, such as bacterial angina for example. Finally, this homoeopathic remedy also allows one to treat inflammations of the pharynx’s mucous membranes, while remedying the pain that often leads to swallowing difficulties.
From the beginning of the flu symptoms, take three granules of Baptisia tinctoria 5 CH three times a day. In the event of acute attacks, particularly in cases of stomach flu, it is advised to take 2 granules of Baptisia tinctoria 5 CH every 15 or 30 minutes. The intakes will be spaced out depending on the patient’s improving condition. Keep taking the same treatment three times a day until the symptoms completely disappear.
Good to know: Apart from its virtues in infectiology, and its action against the infectious microorganisms, wild indigo can also be recommended in gynaecology. This plant contains substances that are able to secrete oestrogen, hence its usefulness for post-menopausal women.
