Home Kit for the Elderly

Elderly people need a few special homoeopathic remedies in their medicine chest along with the other basic remedies that we had listed in our previous issues. The remedies needed for the elderly include Conium maculatum, Allium sativum, Avena sativa etc.

Conium maculatum
Conium maculatum is a remedy particularly suited to the elderly. The remedy affects nearly all the tissues and organs of the body. The complaints develop in a slow, progressive manner. It has the tendency of producing symptoms such as difficult gait, trembling, sudden loss of strength while walking and painful stiffness of legs etc.-these are the symptoms that generally develop in old age, a time of weakness, languor and local congestion and sluggishness.

Old age comes progressively with gradual changes in all organs of the body. Conium maculatum is a remedy that manifests its action on such changes occurring in old age. It corresponds to the debility, hypochondriasis, urinary troubles, weakened memory, s*x**l debility and other symptoms found in the old age.

Allium sativa
Allium sativum is suited to fleshy subjects with dyspepsia and catarrhal affections. It acts on the intestinal mucous membrane increasing peristalsis.

Avena sativa
Avena sativa is the best tonic for debility after nervous tremors in the aged, chorea, paralysis agitans and epilepsy.
