Argentum nitricum

Fighting off several diseases with Argentum nitricum

Argentum Nitricum is a homoeopathic remedy made ??from silver nitrate and chemically synthesised in a laboratory. Diluted and available in the form of granules, Argentum nitricum is used in homoeopathy to relieve and treat many diseases. This remedy is made from silver nitrate powder, combined with other ingredients.

Treating behavioural disorders

Argentum Nitricum is a homoeopathic remedy that is primarily recommended for individuals suffering from behavioural disorder, as is the case of confused patients for example. The patient is often irritable and proves to be impatient during cold weather.  In addition, he or she is usually prone to performance anxiety, manifested by symptoms like agitation, quivers and eventually liquid stool discharge. Moreover, the affected person could also suffer from agoraphobia and ochlophobia. In addition, these persons also fear loneliness and large open spaces. Finally, the subject is afraid of slopes and doesn’t have the courage to take part in certain activities like skiing.

Treating digestive disorders

People with digestive disorders need to be treated with Argenticum nitricum. These disorders affect the stomach and are manifested by bloating, aerophagia and belching. The concerned person usually tends to eat too quickly and thus suffers from severe abdominal pain or gastric ulcers, a condition that is aggravated by eating candy. Diarrhoeas that occur after eating or drinking and irritable bowel syndrome both require treatment with Argentum Niticum. Green stools followed by mucus, which are symptoms generally observed in infants, can also be treated with this remedy.

Indications in ophthalmology and ENT diseases

Argentum Nirticum is a remedy that is primarily indicated for treating ENT conditions, especially in regard to patients with conjunctivitis, keratitis, blepharitis and ulcers. For example, a discharge of yellow pus will require treatment with Argentum Nitricum. The remedy is generally effective from the administration of the first doses. Argentum Niticum is also prescribed in cases of laryngitis and pharyngitis that manifests itself through an unpleasant sensation in the throat, as if a splinter was lodged there. This condition is frequently diagnosed among singers and speakers.

Indications in gynaecology and urology

The use of Argenticum Nitricum is quite widespread in gynaecology. Mainly indicated to relieve pain that occurs during menstruation, the remedy is also recommended for treating ulcers observed in the cervix, especially in case of blood loss. In urology, Argentum Nitricum is used to relieve painful symptoms linked to urination problems. The subject suffering from the disease produces yellow-coloured discharge and feels pain and irritation when urinating.

Recommended dosage

The treatment of digestive disorders requires taking five granules of Argentum Nitricum 9 CH. Depending on the nature of the disease, the treatment can last from one to three months. Regarding aerogastria, the treatment can last more than two weeks but must be discontinued when the patient’s condition improves. Concerning infants with green stools, administer them five granules during 3 days after the appearance of the symptoms. In regard to ENT diseases, it is recommended to take 5 granules every 3 hours. Once the patient’s condition improves, it is possible to further space out the intakes. Urinary and gynaecological disorders require taking 5 granules of Argentum Nitricum 9 to 30 CH over a relatively long time period that can last up to 3 months.

Pathology and homeopathy are two fields of scientific research that go hand in hand. As a matter of fact, homeopathic research on a disease is always accompanied by a pathological study of that disease. Pathology is the scientific field that studies diseases, while homeopathy is a gentle method for treating diseases. Homeopathic treatment follows the principles of similarity (Similia similibus curentur or "likes are cured by likes") and comprehensiveness. There is no universal treatment for a given disease; it must be adapted to each patient.
