Ipecacuanha (Ipecac)

This is one Homeopathic remedy I always keep in stock, both for clients and for my family.  It is a blessing whenever constant nausea and/or vomiting are a leading aspect of an illness. 

Just this past holiday season both my girls and I were living with constant nausea.  There was never any vomiting but the constant nausea had the potential of causing us to miss out on a delicious Thanksgiving dinner.  I broke out the Ipecacuanha and within 24 – 36 hours we all felt better and enjoyed all of the delicious foods of the season!

Even though nausea and vomiting are the main indications for this remedy there are a few others for which Ipecacuanha works particularly well:

  • Migraine headache with severe nausea and/or vomiting
  • Bronchitis and coughs especially in children
  • Coughs that lead to nausea and/or vomiting
  • Rattling cough that comes in warm/humid weather
  • Pertussis or severe cough with stiffness and/or vomiting
  • Bronchiolitis
  • Croup
  • Nausea and/or vomiting with a loathing for the smell of food or the thought of eating food
  • Constant nausea that is unrelieved by vomiting
  • Nausea and vomiting with great irritability
  • Aching in the thigh and/or leg bones

A must have in my practice and my home!
