Homeopathic Remedies for Anxiety

Homeopaths may recommend a variety of natural cures for anxiety as treatment is very specific to the individual. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, some homeopathic anxiety remedies include:2

  • Aconitum - for anxiety accompanied by irregular or forceful heartbeat, shortness of breath, or fear of death.
  • Arsenicum album - for excessive anxiety that has no clear cause and is accompanied by restlessness, especially after midnight. It also may be used for perfectionists, including children, who worry about everything.
  • Phosphorus - for an impending sense of doom and anxiety when alone. It also may be used for impressionable adults and children who are easily influenced by the anxiety of others.
  • Lycopodium- for performance and other types of anxiety in those who are insecure, yet hide their low self-esteem with arrogance and bravado. It also may treat children with anxiety accompanied by bedwetting.
  • Gelsemium - for performance anxiety resulting in diarrhea, headache, dizziness, weakness, shakiness and trembling, or trouble speaking.
  • Argentum nitricum - for performance anxiety (such as before tests in school-age children) with rapid heart rate, feeling of faintness, diarrhea, or flatulence.
