Hypericum in the Veterinary Materia Medica

Hypericum in homeopathy is a remedy for Pain Relief - Painful Injuries. Nerve Injuries to the Tongue, Toes, Claws, Nails and Tails - Spinal Injuries - Surgical Pain - Prevents Tetanus - Painful Dental Procedures.

Homeopathic Hypericum is a remedy for nerve endings. When there is a wound or injury to nerves. Hypericum is called for when the pet feels far more pain than what shows, the injury feels sore, bruised, tearing, and the pain is sharp, or shooting, this is when Hypericum will be of benefit. It is often recommended for puncture wounds from splinters, nails or claws that have been ripped off, barbed wire or bites.

Mental Symptoms: Depression after a trauma. Anytime there is a back, neck or spinal trauma– pain during birthing included– with spasming, radiating or shooting pain, Hypericum’s nerve relief can be helpful. It can be critical following head injuries, given immediately or even for lingering symptoms years later (also see Nat sulph). If depression and mental changes began with an injury to the head, spine or elsewhere, Hypericum can bring incredible support (compare to Nat sulph).

Neuromuscular Symptoms: Sharp, shooting radiating pain along the nerve, burning and tingling.

Hypericum is the Arnica of the nerves. It has a profound effect on the nervous system, particularly the nerve endings. It has an affinity for SPINAL NERVES.

Internal Uses:

Removes bad effects from shock or fright.
