Did you know that coffee beans can be used to treat the symptoms of insomnia?
Given in a homeopathic dose!
Homeopathy is a natural, holistic, medicine. It works on the principle ‘like treats like’ formulated by Hippocrates in 450B.C., rediscovered in the development of homeopathic medicine by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann in the late 1700’s. Homeopathy was taken up by other doctors and physicians of his time and spread throughout Europe, to America and to India. These days homeopathy is a global health choice for millions of people worldwide.
The principle ‘like treats like’ basically means that any substance that causes a particular affliction can be used to treat it when it is taken in homeopathic form. Too much coffee can cause sleeplessness, irregular heartbeat, over-excitement and headaches, so these are the very things Coffea is used to treat.
Coffea is a very useful remedy for people who find themselves on the go all the time. Late to bed and early to rise, juggling work, family and all the pressures of a busy life can lead to feelings of constant busyness, stimulation and stress.
The nervous system gets over stimulated and forgets how to ‘switch off’. It can be hard to relax. Falling asleep can be difficult leading to irritability and tiredness during the day or the feeling of being on super overdrive and never quite relaxing. It can also be a useful remedy for treating headaches, palpitations, vertigo and asthmatic breathing.
If you find yourself in this position, Coffea is one remedy that may be helpful. You do not have to be a coffee drinker to experience these symptoms or to benefit from this remedy. This is what makes it ‘like treats like’ not ‘same treats same’. The symptoms you experience are as if you are drinking loads of coffee, whether or not you are – you could be just leading a very busy life and feel over stimulated from work and family pressures.
Whatever the cause, the symptoms indicate a need for some attention and a well prescribed homeopathic remedy can make all the difference in re-balancing health and wellbeing, getting you back to the flow of your natural rhythm.
