Conium Maculatum

Below are the strongest indications of Conium Maculatum in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.

An old remedy, rendered classical by Plato’s graphic description of its employment in the death of Socrates. The Ascending paralysis it produces, ending in death by failure of respiration, show the ultimate tendency of many symptoms produced in the provings, for which Conium Maculatum is an excellent remedy, such as difficult gait, trembling, sudden loss of strength while walking, painful stiffness of legs, etc. Such a condition is often found in old age, a time of weakness, languor, local congestions, and sluggishness. This is the special environment that Conium chooses to manifest its action. It corresponds to the debility, hypochondriasis, urinary troubles, weakened memory, sexual debility found here. Troubles at the change of life, old maids and bachelors. Growth of tumors invite it also. General feeling as if bruised by blows. Great debility in the morning in bed. Weakness of body and mind trembling, and palpitation. Cancerous diathesis. Arteriosclerosis. Caries of sternum. Enlarged glands. Acts on the glandular system, engorging and indurating it, altering its structure like scrofulous and cancerous conditions. Tonic after grippe. Insomnia of multiple neuritis.
BETTER, while fasting, in the dark, from letting limbs hand down, motion and pressure.
WORSE, lying down, TURNING or rising in bed; Celibacy; before and during menses, from taking cold, bodily or mental exertion.
